AMAC’s Year-End Call to Action: ‘Get Involved’

dan-weberWe must ‘remain diligent and aware of the threats posed by those who rewrite and distort history’ 

by John Grimaldi – WASHINGTON, DC, Dec 27 – “Take the time in the New Year to do a good turn for your neighbor, for your community, for your country and for the sake of the freedoms we hold dear. That’s my New Year’s resolution and I encourage our members and friends to share these ambitions in 2014,” according to Dan Weber, president of the Association of Mature American Citizens.

He offered this year-end message to the more than one million members of AMAC and their families and friends, asking them to “get involved with the task of preserving the legacies of our Founding Fathers so that we can ensure the future for the next generations. This country was born for the purpose of providing refuge for those who had no shelter, for offering opportunity for those with little or no hope for the future and for affording individuals, whoever they are and wherever they come from, a chance to live, speak and worship as they please. And, of course, for helping each other to succeed so that we can promote growth and independence for ourselves and others.”

Weber said that AMAC is committed to preserving that heritage and noted that “we must not take these freedoms for granted. We need to actively protect them by being responsible citizens who participate in the process by exercising our right to petition our lawmakers, by using our votes to elect those who will steer us clear of murky ideologies and, of course, by looking out for one another.”

He cautioned that “the progressive principles that have been espoused in recent years threaten our political independence and the authority of ‘we, the people,’ that is guaranteed under our Constitution.

Whether a voter is a Democrat or a Republican is not the issue. The issue is the liberal influence that has made the nation dependent on the so-called largess of government in the form of indiscriminate hand-outs. Remember it was a Democrat, John Kennedy, who said, ‘ask not what your country can do for you,’ and it was a Republican, Ronald Reagan who said, ‘the greatness of America doesn’t begin in Washington; it begins with each of you—in the mighty spirit of free people under God.’ We have an obligation to ourselves and to our children and our grandchildren that can only be fulfilled if we remain diligent and aware of the threats posed by those who rewrite and distort history. And, AMAC stands ready to aid that cause.”

The Encyclopedia Britannica’s definition of a political Conservative is one who ‘favors institutions and practices that have evolved gradually and are manifestations of continuity and stability. Government’s responsibility is to be the servant, not the master, of existing ways of life, and politicians must therefore resist the temptation to transform society and politics.”

It defines a political Liberal as one who believes that “protecting and enhancing the freedom of the individual to be the central problem of politics. Liberals typically believe that government is necessary to protect individuals from being harmed by others.”

Weber concluded that if you ask Americans what their preference might be, “the great majority would opt for describing themselves as political Conservatives. And, that’s the key to winning back our country from Liberals who would impose greater government intrusion into our personal lives. We must oppose the Liberal demagogues – politicians “who make use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power.”

There are only four (4) great documents in the history of the world that matter:
1. The Holy Bible
2. The Declaration Of Independence
3. The United States Constitution
4. The Bill Of Rights

Everything else is just worthless garbage!

If Raymond D Aumack is an an example of the next generation, the future of this Country is in BIG trouble!! Unable to think for themselves. Get their info from MSNBC, New York Times, ABC, CBS, NBC & all their affiliates who spout only what Obama & his Socialist/Communist friends want them to know. They only mimic with no original thoughts. It has been proven that Obama & the Democrats have lied over and over but these followers continue to trot along behind him right over the cliff. They deserve what they will end up with if they continue to… Read more »

Several commenters are correct. The only way to solve the problems and save freedom in this country is to elect intelligent constitutionalists to Congress, replacing enough of the socialists, communists, and dirtbags there so that we can start getting bad laws repealed. Always vote for the candidate most likely to vote in Congress for LOWER TAXES, LESS GOVERNMENT, and MORE INDIVIDUAL LIBERTY. Get the US out of the UN, and get the UN out of the US. Otherwise, all liberty will be lost.

If you are talking about the very wealthy oil companies receiving subsidies after they publicly advertise the $100 billion in annual profits; if you are talking about wealthy farmers receiving subsidies from the federal government that they surely do not need; if you are talking about pork barrel subsidies to select congressional districts; if you are talking about federal partiality in the form of tax breaks and subsidies to the gun control lobby or to the many lobbies that that are corrupting our government to garner votes;if you are talking about the millions poured into government by people like the… Read more »

I’m glad you are encouraging members to get involved and volunteer to help our communities. My wife and I have been volunteering for years and conservatively have put in over 300 combined hours this year. We also do missing trips with our church, which we love. I try to spread the word about AMAC every chance I get. Is there a brochure or something I can give out that you might suggest? Even something I can print out of download. I’ll be praying for the continuing success of AMAC this coming year. I know the bible tells us that times… Read more »

I fear for my country. I see and listen to so much abuse, decadence and evil from ALL in D.C. I pray to God every day to deliver us from all this EVIL. I encourage all to vote this coming year for righteous, and honest individuals. The only way to change this bloated and huge goverment of ours is by joining together and enforcing our rights by the Fifth Amendment of our Constitution. I urge ALL of you to get involved and support the Convention of States being organized right now. For the sake of our children and grand children… Read more »

Big government is here and we all are paying the price for being absence for the years not paying attention to the liberal big government agenda. It started with the Great Society under President Johnson in our attempt to correct the wrongs of racism in the United States. In an attempt to correct this wrong and any wrong that affected any minority the white middle class became the bad guys. In our attempts to reach equality among cultures we have created a multi cultural society that is destined to end America as we know it. The strength of America is… Read more »

I am a new member to AMAC and I’m impressed with what this organization is striving to do…and that is to bring our country back to its fundamental values. It’s not an easy task but it’s got to happen or eventually all of our liberties, rights and freedom will be lost forever. Our “uninformed citizens” need to be educated, and that is the key word here, so they can see what is happening to this country and can make informed decisions when it comes time to vote for candidates who will work for us, and not be self-serving once they’re… Read more »

If the fight for our Constutional government that has recently begun continues and the totalitarian big government progressives of both parties do not squelch it in the budding, we will be long gone before the battle is resolved. That means we must to the best of our abilities get out there and do our part to restore what has been a hic-up in history where we have lived better and happier lives than even kings in the past. Our basic liberties are at great risk. Our system of government at the founding was based on natural law (the laws of… Read more »

I hope AMAC will help us out by posting a “Get involved” map of races with the candidates listed so we can get involved early in the process. One of the most effective grassroots actions we can take is walking precincts for/with our local candidates. The personal contact can really make the difference, but it involves time and effort. In small local elections, just a few more votes can make a huge difference, and if you can get someone out to vote for a local candidate with conservative principals, they just might vote for other conservatives on the ballot as… Read more »

In my humble opinion the problem is ignorance. Most Americans have no idea what the constitution is or most importantly the personal liberties it contains. To long have we the parents and even our parents neglected the education of our children in the basic knowledge of what the Constitutional Republic of the United States is, or even what a Constitutional Republic stands for! If the average American comprehended the depth of wisdom our forefathers displayed with the penning of this most amazing and timeless document, the socialists would never have gained the foot hold needed to progress the absolutely insane… Read more »

When I saw the lead in, “Call to Action” I was hopeful because I think it’s past time to take action. Many of us are worried about the organized Government action to disarm us and to take other rights away from us. And yet, nothing is being done by anyone. Is anyone working behind the scenes to protect us from our Government? We need some active protests and some concrete action to stop the deterioration of our rights.

I’m with Phil and get so amused at Boehner, McConnell, McCain & some others whose bark is far worse than their bite. I have specifically followed these RINO’s and have to laugh when I recall Boehner’s “this ain’t no damn game”. To me, that sums it up pretty well. It is a game to the elite Republicans. But, more people are wise to them and I believe if I read correctly, they all are in trouble in their home states. It could be the “best of times”, but we will have to see. Dick

Make it plain to your representatives that the day of reckoning is coming with the 2014 elections. Remind them that Leopards don’t change spots but we can change the Leopards. Make sure they understand that we will not buy into their suddenly seeing the light in order to get reelected and then back to business as usual. The 2014 elections are especially important because there are over 400 seats up for grabs. This election will be a major breaking point for many. This election could change everything. If the Liberals, especially the Washington Dems were to gain complete control of… Read more »

There is a movement afoot to teach us how to “take our nation back.” Go to and see how our local sheriff and commissioners are the keys. The laws are already written – they are ignored, but if we know them, we can retake our homeland. Elected officials whose jobs depend upon the people who elected them – what a concept!

I read many comments by many people on many subjects and or complaints about the way our government is handling our lives. HOPEFULLY, each of you that has taken the time to read and put into words your thoughts on our problems is taking the EXTRA time to also write your congressman or senator with the same complaint(s) you write about in these forums. Here for the most part you are preaching to the choir. Take the time to let them know how you feel, they do get emails and they do answer. Mostly they answer in politicaleze but they… Read more »

Sneaky moves in Washington are rampant. I honestly believe Obama’s goal is to ruin our society and then pave the way for it to be totally restructured as a socialist non-Christian friendly society.

Although the Bill of Rights established that our government needed to stay out of the business of religion, Obama has set up a MUSLIM OUTREACH, federally funded, for K-12 starting in February. Apparently, even the atheists are ignoring it!

I agree with both PaulE & P.Coates. We all must be active in 2014 to turn this country away from the Socialist policies which are threatening our freedoms. We must continue this activism going toward the 2016 presidential election also. We must not become complacent after the 2014 election because it is just the beginning if the fight.

It is time for us to stand up for what we believe, get out and vote and pray that our country will return to freedom and God. We become too complacent when things in our lives are going well.
Socialism is not the answer, nor is big government.
