Good morning everyone.
For readers in the Shenandoah Valley, we have two events of note coming up this Thursday, May 20. The first is the monthly gathering of the Shenandoah Valley Tea Party. This meeting will take place at the Massanutten Regional Library in Downtown Harrisonburg (174 South Main Street) from 5.30 PM to 8:30 PM. The second is the Young Republicans. This meeting will happen at Ham’s Restaurant (221 University Boulevard) from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Yes, you will likely notice that these two events overlap. It is unfortunate that I’ll have to leave the party early in order to make the YR’s. Nevertheless, both are venues to connect with likeminded folks, lovers of liberty and limited government. If you happen to live in the Shenandoah Valley and share my political philosophy, you really should try to make at least one of these events.
Now, I know that many of you live in other parts of the state or country or even another nation entirely, so making the trek to Harrisonburg is not feasible. Nevertheless, if you are passionate about politics (or freedom tempered with the rule of law), not only should you get involved, you must get involved. Any government can change, but only if citizens like you and me are willing to take a stand for principle. In whatever corner of the globe you might happen to live, why not make Thursday the day you finally take action?
