September 8th, 2009, Fairfax, VA—The nationwide American Liberty Tour, an outreach effort to organize concerned citizens, is launching on September 10th in Sacramento, California. It is scheduled to stop in 18 cities across twelve states from California to Georgia until October 13th.
“What sets this tour apart is that we’ll be on the ground organizing the grassroots, engaging them in hands-on training, and raising the clarion call that now is the time to take back America,” said ALG New Media Coordinator and Director of NetRightNation.com Adam Bitely.
Bitely will be handling the tour’s new media outreach. “With Congress about to come back into session, now is a critical time for the grassroots to be organized. A lot of the work that was done in August has been in preparation for the upcoming legislative session, where the Obama health care takeover will be voted on in both houses and cap-and-tax in Senate,” said Bitely.
“Our message to middle America is: the time has come to take back our country—one community at a time. Here’s the message for Barack Obama: ‘We have just begun to fight,” Bitely added.
Bitely can also be followed during the tour. on Twitter.com under the tag line, www.twitter.com/adambitely or @adambitely.
“The American Liberty Tour will be providing daily updates to bloggers across the country about our stops, the message that is being delivered to the grassroots, and what they can begin doing to help take back America.”
“On the tour, we’ll be training and encouraging individuals to become active in their communities, in the streets, online, politically and in government, and to be communicating directly and constantly to their representatives. It’s now or never to build a viable political movement,” Bitely said.
Bitely said “change,” a common theme in the 2008 presidential election, “is antagonistic to Washington. It comes from without, is dependent on the genuine outrage of the American people, and is what sets the agenda in Washington. Without individual Americans becoming politically organized, however, the outrage is easily ignored by politicians.”
Americans for Limited Government renewed his call for Americans nationwide to join the tour, which will feature Adam Bitely (NetRight Nation), Ned Ryun (American Majority), Eric Odom (TaxDayTeaParty.com), Ken Marrero (American Liberty Alliance), Erick Erickson (RedState), “Joe the Plumber”, Lloyd Marcus (The Tea Party Song), and many others.
“Only if the American people pose a viable political threat to the establishment in Washington will they be fearful of losing their jobs. That’s the only time they’ll act in the interests of their constituents,” Bitely said.
“This is your country. That’s the message we’ll be taking to Sacramento, Tallahassee, Atlanta, and elsewhere. Change will come from individual Americans in their communities who are determined to save their nation from a government that is destroying the country,” Bitely concluded.
