While awaiting...”official” After Action....
An After Action question & Liberty comment.
How many people would you folks attending today guesstimate were there.?
While there was some coverage on TV and online, there is a special source with the guts to say what others don’t but should.

PLEASE!!! As a lover of Liberty,  If you would like to see real coverage by an actual living Lady of Liberty and constitutional attorney who  brings in history and specifics on our founders, PLEASE see this You TuBe re the Virginia Rally today. She speaks our history lingo linking  both past and present.
This is lengthy but listen in sections if needed. So worth it!

You Tube inserts some music before the program but you can scroll through that.
Oh and she went to her first private ladies Appleseed years ago

Some sources said 22,000.  I would say closer to double that.
In giving us dominion over the animal kingdom, God has signified His will that we subdue the beast within ourselves.
John Lancaster Spalding

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.
Benjamin Franklin, 1775

"A free people ought not only to be armed, but disciplined; to which end a uniform and well-digested plan is requisite; and their safety and interest require that they should promote such manufactories as tend to render them independent of others for essential, particularly military, supplies."  George Washington 1790

“[T]o preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them…”
– Richard Henry Lee, Declaration Signer

For those who are able, New Mexico is having its own protest/demonstration day on the 31st in Santa Fe.  TaosGlock is coordinating. Any and all support is appreciated!!!  Let's keep the momentum going!

Recommend New Mexico set up a 'Signal' group for the event. It worked well for the Virginia lobby day.

Signal is an end-to-end text communications app, which allegedly doesn’t share its info with any other apps or third parties.  Popular in Hong Kong.  Think of a barebones WhatsApp prior to WA being acquired by FB.
"5 minutes for this stage - that's like a week in people years!"

"Responsibility is a unique concept... You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you... If responsibility is rightfully yours, no evasion, or ignorance or passing the blame can shift the burden to someone else. Unless you can point your finger at the man who is responsible when something goes wrong, then you have never had anyone really responsible.”
― Hyman G. Rickover

"Scoring is a function of great execution, and winning Is the result, but thinking about winning can pull your focus off of proper execution in a competition. Thinking about process is the answer."- Lanny Bassham

Ah.  I suspect Dan won't have that.  We'll do what we can!

If you are an Appleseeder and have yet to experience a Krissanne Hall lecture (live if possible), you're really missing out. I have yet to find another person on this planet as fired up about the history of Liberty and it's preservation today than her. She's been to Appleseed and could probably do the 3 strikes better than any of us. Seriously.

And for this Lobby Day thing, this really needs to happen in every state if we're ever to make a real impact.

AFTER ACTION
How many people would you folks attending today guesstimate were there.?

"We have always looked upon men as a set of beings naturally free - that a people can never be divested of those invaluable rights and liberties which are necessary to the happiness of individuals, to the well-beings of communities or to a well regulated state, but by their own negligence, imprudence, timidity or rashness. They are seldom lost, but when foolishly forfeited or tamely resigned." ~Jonas Clarke

Agreed. 22,000 is a stupid low estimate. 40k-50k is more accurate.
