Local Activist Gold Is Found In Your Local City Council

“There ought to be a law!” Why, that would fix our problems, wouldn’t it? We wouldn’t have to lift a finger. Let somebody else do it. That’s what we pay them for, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, this deceptive thinking allows us to escape any personal responsibility for doing anything about the things we don’t like, and this is wrong.

The heartbeat of the First Amendment and the watershed of a Constitutional Republic is and has always been, personal action. Expressing your religion, speaking, writing, assembling together and interacting with government to redress grievances, all require your personal attention and action.

While America has been engulfed in contentious national politics for the last fifty years, the enemies of our nation have done just the opposite: they focused on local action, transforming our cities, towns and communities while we slept.

The phrase “Think global, act local” is attributed to a handful of people, not the least of whom is David Brower, the founder in 1971 of the radical environmental group Friends of the Earth. It has morphed into a slogan for globalization in general and in particular the United Nations’ pervasive program of Sustainable Development as embodied in its Agenda 21, 2030 Agenda and New Urban Agenda policies.

 As a master strategy, these globalization-promoting organizations sent hoards of consultants, lobbyists and attorneys into every local community in America to promote a one-sided activism that has led to the ugly transformation of America. Collectively, they “thought global and acted local”.

This stealth attack on local America has gone largely unanswered by those who would agree that this is not the future we want. But, “wanting” isn’t the same as “getting”.

Getting the future you want is predicated on the vigilant, persistent exercise of your First Amendment rights. If you don’t use ‘em, you lose ‘em.

To stop and reverse the downward spiral, Americans must meet the enemy where he is operating and winning, namely, in your own local community.

There are two ways to do this. First, you can work to block something from happening. For instance, residents in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma were alerted that their city council was considering a mandate requiring face masks. In a meeting that took place for public discussion, citizens delivered over three hours of opposing comments that convinced the council to drop the whole idea. This is the First Amendment in action.

Second, you can work to create something that should happen, but isn’t. For example, in December 2020, the New Orleans City Council passed a binding ordinance that placed an outright ban on surveillance technology such as facial recognition software and predictive policing. The year-long process leading up to the final vote was made possible by responsible local citizens who involved themselves in civic affairs by exercising their First Amendment rights.

Who says you can’t fight city hall? Better yet, who says you can’t BE city hall?

Did you know that many local elected positions are filled with no opposition? This means that there were no candidates on the ballot and someone just threw their name in… and got elected! There are water boards, school boards, planning and zoning boards, fire boards, advisory boards and many others in every community.

So, why don’t more level-headed Americans get involved in local civic matters?

Fear. Lack of communication skills. Ignorance. Laziness. No sense of need.

Citizens for Free Speech cannot address all of these, but for those who are ready to stand up and be counted, it does offer dynamic and proven training on how to effectively communicate with people who may not agree with you. These are easily learned skills and behaviors with which anyone can become proficient to make a lasting impact in their local communities.

Simply put, your First Amendment rights to communicate are not abstract concepts that exist in a vacuum. They only appear when you begin to practice them.

    You say Citizens for Free Speech offers proven training for effective communication. Where is this training? Don’t see any links for this. Also Patrick Wood recommended a book on Corbett Report, that is being used as a manual. I can’t find any of these resources on your website. Could you assist, please?

    Great reminders. I, personally, have fear around trying to jump in and do something; it is often easier to sit on the sidelines, but it’s beyond time to act. We may not even be able to stop the criminal, freedom-crushing blow coming to America. I have young adult kids and I really want to try to take some actions. I’m new to the site, and quit protesting and advocating after the NOW movement and the Equal Rights Amendment activism decades ago.

    This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot since the November election. I was despairing over the future and if our government would do the right thing (spoiler alert: they didn’t). And this ultimately came as no surprise to me or my family. It was heart breaking, yes, but not surprising. We harbored no delusions that the corrupt in Washington were suddenly going to admit that they had cheated and apologize.

    I began thinking of what I could do. I was already not wearing a mask and being that symbol, I had also resolved to volunteer to be at my local voting place as well. But I was also thinking just about what I could do in the meantime. I’ve emailed several officials in my city since then whenever certain things have come up, and even brought other things to their attention (hopefully).

    But…I guess attending these meetings is the next step I need to take. Thank you for writing this post and creating this site!
