Pray for Baltimore

image

Baltimore, our hearts and prayers go out to you…

Seeing the city of Baltimore under siege is truly heartbreaking–especially here in nearby Washington, D.C. Never could we fathom a major city burning and being destroyed before our very eyes today. Watching small businesses being besieged, buildings burned, innocent passersby silenced, streets littered, and fairly restrained police officers attacked is disconcerting.

Without a doubt, decades’ long toiling with big government policies–since the 1960s–have led the city to ruin.  High taxes, an ever-growing welfare state, gun control, and paternalistic government have caused many to become disillusioned and dispirited in that city, though their anger is directed elsewhere, say, at critics of big government policies. Looting, pillaging, and racebaiting has come to define much of the tone from protestors, which is quite sad. Their deplorable actions undermine the reasonable voices who seek to reform and rebuild this once great city.

Glad there are some locals who are above the rioting and violence trying to quell the unrest in Charm City. May the reasonable voices have their perspectives heard and the wrath of big government be quashed. Hoping the Hogan administration brings an end to quagmire perpetuated by its predecessors.

Catch Me at MDCAN’s Turning the Tides Conference

Two weeks from today, I’ll be speaking at Maryland Citizen Action Network’s annual Turning the Tides conference in Annapolis, MD on January 10, 2015. I’ll be one of four panelists on their “Liberty in the Youth” panel. Headlining speakers include Dr. Alveda King, Dan Bongino, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Niger Innis, Kira Davis,  Sonnie Johnson, and more.

I previously spoke at the event in 2013 on their “Cheated Generation” panel. Here’s the video (I start talking at 19:28):

Here’s more about the conference:

Maryland shocked the nation in the 2014 midterm elections. Marylanders are showing they are ready to reject one-party control over the state.

There is still a lot of work to do to maintain the momentum though. Turning the Tides 2015 is a key part of that.

Join us to learn about what strategies worked and what helped weaken the one party monopoly in Maryland. Come to learn about how to infiltrate the pop culture and reach out to new potential voters. Perhaps most importantly, join us so we can show the state and the country a united front for making Maryland into the “Free State” once again.

What? Turning the Tides 2015

When? January 10, 2015 from 9:00 AM – 5:00PM

Where? Annapolis DoubleTree Hotel

Conference tickets are still available. It costs $35.00 for students, $75.00 for MDCAN members, and $90 for non-MDCAN members.

Hope to see you there!
