Tomorrow, Monday, September 17th, Judge Jim Gray, the Libertarian Party vice-presidential candidate, will be on the campus of James Madison University. Madison Liberty is hosting the event. As their name implies, they are a liberty-minded group of students at the university.
The gathering itself will be taking place starting at 3:30 PM on The Commons, which is next to D-Hall. For non-JMU students, a parking pass is available at parking services, located in ground floor of the parking deck beside the football stadium on Champions Drive.
Whether you consider yourself libertarian, conservative, liberal, some other political persuasion, or even those who are not particularly informed, tomorrow provides another excellent opportunity for the students of James Madison and the surrounding community to expand political dialogue and learn more about Gary Johnson and his running mate, Judge Jim Gray.
You may have forgotten, but tomorrow is Constitution Day, the anniversary of the signing of our Constitution. How better to commemorate the day than by spending an hour with Jim Gray alongside a bunch of students who actively seek to restore and expand our freedoms?
Today, ladies and gentlemen, is Constitution Day. It has been 222 years since the Constitutional Convention adopted our Constitution. Despite the massive (and unconstitutional) growth of the federal government since that time, we would do well as free citizens to take a bit of time to reflect on the document. As such, if you’ve never visited The 10th Amendment Center, I strongly encourage you to clink on the link today.
Now, although the day may pass with little fanfare in many parts of the country, I’m pleased to say that citizens of the Virginia Peninsula are marking the occasion. Tonight, at Merchants Square in Colonial Williamsburg, citizens will gather to celebrate this founding document. It pleases me to know that at The College of William & Mary, my alma mater, students from the College Republicans will be in attendance. But what’s this? You don’t have your own copy of the Constitution? Find Delegate Brenda Pogge (R-96) who freely gives them out or visit either the James City County, York County, or Newport News Republican Party headquarters.
So tonight your task is threefold. Reread the Constitution, reclaim your rights, and (if there is a gathering in your area) party like its 1787!
