Independence Day

Because of the passage of time and cultural distance, it is easy to forget the cost the Founders and early Patriots of the United States of America paid to seek and win our freedom from the British Crown. We value too lightly their intellect, foresight, sacrifices, and tenacity.

 

“The hour is fast approaching, on which the Honor and Success of this army, and the safety of our bleeding Country depend. Remember officers and Soldiers, that you are Freemen, fighting for the blessings of Liberty – that slavery will be your portion, and that of your posterity, if you do not acquit yourselves like men.”

 

– General George Washington

General Orders to the Troops

August 23, 1776

 

This Independence Day, remind yourself that you have rights granted to you not from the government but from your Creator. We are a free people, with the inalienable right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. It is the duty of the government to protect these rights.

 

The best way to keep the government in check and on the right course is to participate in the process. At all levels of government, good people are needed to step up and hold officials accountable or to even take up an official role. From town dog catcher to local school board, to county council, to precinct committeemen, to state legislator and everywhere in between, Patriots are needed to take back America. As John Stuart Mill said in 1867, “Bad men need nothing more to compass their ends than that good men should look on and do nothing.”

 

What are you doing to save America?

 

“Courage, then, my countrymen; our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty.

 

– Samuel Adams, signer of the Declaration

of Independence, advocating for American Independence

at the State House in Philadelphia on August 1, 1776

 

Calls-to-Action

North Carolina

The North Carolina General Assembly is considering passing an Omnibus Elections Bill that, while containing some provisions that improve the integrity of the state’s elections, still needs to address some key concerns. Specifically, the bill falls short in several key areas. To learn more and support this call-to-action click here.

 

California

The California State Assembly is considering two separate bills: SB 278 makes banks and financial institutions responsible for financial abuse if they fail to stop a person or entity from taking, secreting, appropriating, obtaining, or retaining property from an elder. This bill is an appropriate protection against financial abuse for California seniors.  SCA 2 would lower the legal voting age in California to 17 if approved by voters. This is an attempt by Democrats to capture the student vote and influence impressionable minors to vote for hyper-liberal candidates and policies. It needs to be stopped before it appears on the ballot in a general election. To support the California call-to-action click here.

 

Ohio

Ohio hospitals are still hiding prices for medical services despite a federal law enacted under President Trump that prevents this. Right now, Ohio lawmakers are engaged in discussions to include Ohio’s hospital transparency law, HB 49, in the budget. Real transparency means more clarity, more competition, lower costs, and better care for patients. Ohio’s elected leaders have an opportunity to finally end the secrecy and make hospitals do the right thing for patients. House Bill 49 will help enforce federal requirements and make hospitals post their prices publicly for all to see. Click here to support the Ohio call-to-action.

 

Legislation & Policy Support

H.R. 3561PATIENT Act of 2023

The importance of this legislation to reduce the cost of healthcare cannot be understated. AMAC has followed the process this legislation has taken through multiple hearings and markups to produce this bipartisan bill which was voted out of committee unanimously. We strongly support this bill and currently, there are over 20 bipartisan cosponsors. But more are needed! The call-to-action for the PATIENT Act is still active and if you haven’t already, please tell your representative to step up and co-sponsor it!

Chapter Meetings

Over the last week the following chapter meetings occurred:

In TX-24 members had an informal coffee chat at a coffee shop to discuss “What’s brewing in Texas Congressional District 24.” Members of CA-50 and CA-51 discussed AMAC Action items, East San Diego County Republican Party activities and 2024 Presidential candidates. A retired justice of the peace spoke to members of TX-32 about the difference between “small claims” court in Texas and The People’s Court, and what the differences are between a Texas justice of the peace and a constable. The chapter president of West Georgia Right to Life talked to GA-03 members about protecting life from conception to natural death.

 

Quote of the Week

“Eternal vigilance is the price we pay for liberty.”
