Currently, the federal government is initiating policy and legislation that could severely undermine our individual rights. Security has been the launch pad for numerous programs and processes that should be publicly scrutinized before implemented. Instead, a shadow government is operating with little or no challenge, and the media is turning a blind eye to it.
Independence means that we have the freedom as a nation to participate in our destiny. Be watchful, debate the issue of security versus freedom with your family and friends, define what security is for America, and then engage in determining what you will or will not tolerate in terms of its cost. Once you have asserted this much independence, the rest will fall into place.
It`s Survey Time Again
Please take the time to fill out the reader survey on page 6. The information is invaluable to us in continuing to provide you with a publication that is meaningful for you. It also helps us identify our market, which enables us to attract our advertisers. Without our advertisers, we would not be able to produce this community newspaper. We believe our advertisers truly benefit from their presence in our publication because we keep in touch with our readership via such things as this survey, helping advertisers to reach an audience that, in turn, genuinely benefits from their products or services. It is a win-win-win situation. Thank you in advance for participating. We look forward to hearing from you.
