Happy New Year!


Usually this time of year I am thinking about how I need to eat better and exercise more, times are not just that simple anymore…

I look back over this year and I see politically the disastrous trail left behind for us to try and clean up in this New Year. I also look back and see the beginnings of a Movement that is bringing some of us together like never before. Doug and I started this group in February of 2009 and we thought it would be a book club or a meeting group. We thought we would draft letters to the editor, and contact politicians and try to make a difference both nationally and in our community on a small scale. I never foresaw the March on Washington, the accomplishment of enacting an Inspector General in our county or saving the county aproximately $67 million once the community becoming aware of the proposed  Landfill fiscal disaster,  or even Wexler stepping down and the coming special election. I also never would have believed we would make so many new patriot friends that we never had before. I have learned over this year that WE ARE NOT ALONE! The only way to succeed in these endeavors is by working together and for those who have certain strengths, give them full rein in that area. We have gone from a Meetup group with a number of leaders  to a group of team mates  with over 430+ members on the meetup site and over 100+ on the new website. We have had some ups and downs with leadership and with those bumps we have grown. Some leaders have gone to start their own groups or step back to participate but due to other obligations just remain members. In the process however we have had leaders that have truly shined. Here in the New Year we have a leadership team for the South Florida 912  that is always evolving. Our team  is just that a group of team players that are willing to work together, not against each other for the main purpose. Our strength is you! Looking ahead we need as many people as possible to share the web site name to others and the message. The new web site offers a place for people to share ideas, blog, come up with new events or just get informed. In looking ahead I see so many needs with the main focus , first the special election and then the vote in November. Along the way the steps to get there by each of us may be different however I believe in the end we all have the same goals. I have met and spoken with a number of the leaders from the other groups and we believe generally about the goals and I hope and look forward to working with them in the future to achieve these goals. We are looking for leaders in the South end of the County to be a liaison with DC Works for Us and a few other leadership positions so if you are interested please let me know.

Please do not get discouraged, with hope I look ahead to the New Year and know that as a team of Patriots we can make a difference.

    Well said Shannon. There’s nothing I can add to it except it’s time for all of us to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Every effort helps; be it as simple as pressuring with phone calls, faxes, and emails, or something else. If we all work together and leave egos at home, we can and will win the battles.

    A great start for right now is making sure we get the vote out for Ed Lynch. Whatever any of us can do to help anyone register, drive them to polls, etc. Volunteering in any capacity for candidates like Alan West and Ed Lynch. I plan on writing a few letters to different papers here in Florida, Massachusetts, California, New York, and anywhere else I can think of. As much as I want to see our Florida candidates get elected, I want to see people like Barney Frank, Chuck Schumer, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and the like get un-elected. As we all know, they all effect us no matter where they come from.

    Happy New Year to everyone.
