Ready for Boot Camp?

This is a really good idea, and I like the fact that it's non-partisan (I don't think Robin will mind if I re-post this in its entirety):
I am pleased to announce the next phase of the Liberty Coalition’s plan to put the political process back in the people’s hands and take it away from the politicos, cronies, and self-interested party bosses. The Liberty Coalition will be hosting several sessions of the Political Action Boot Camp for everyone who wants to help take back the Ulster County government. We will show you how to get involved in your town government, how to become a member of your Party’s County Committee, and how to help candidates you support get on the ballot and get elected. If you are not enrolled in a political party and you want to stay that way, you can still participate.

The power to effect change is in our hands. This is a countywide initiative to take back our government and we are working with concerned citizens in every town. The initial trainings will be conducted in two different locations and are open to anyone who wants to help us move forward. Hopefully you’ll decide to join our efforts, but you’re under no obligation. If nothing else, come to listen, learn, talk and meet some of your neighbors.

Session 1 – Wednesday, May 16
6:30 to 8:30 PM
Clintondale/Highland location – TBA

Session 2 – Tuesday, May 22
6:30 to 8:30 PM
Saugerties location – TBA

We have limited seating so you must pre-register. We will not share or post registration info or attendees names. The only people who will know you attended are the other attendees. To reserve a seat, send an email indicating location preference to (kept confidential) and we will email directions (both locations are private residences).

Boots on the ground to restore liberty!

Whatever your personal politics, the fact is we have a bunch of self-serving leaders who are really more interested in feathering their own nests than in good government. One of the reasons they're able to get away with all of this cronyism is that more good people, from a broad cross-section of political opinion, don't get involved.

If we don't pay close attention to what our leaders our doing, we have no one to blame but ourselves when they sell us out to the highest bidder. This is one small way that you can put your money where your mouth is, and begin the process of putting our government back hands of the people.
