Hi there folks! I am new to these forums and the FSP but I have been greatly displeased and terribly distressed with how the federal government has been transforming itself, and our nation as a whole. I don't know if we're at the point of no return where only a revolution will save America, but I hope not - I hope a peaceful "revolution" of public outcry is still all we need. But I have to support any and all fellow citizens standing up for our beloved nation. It's our right, our responsibility, and our duty to do so.
I live in North Little Rock, just off the AR River near the I-440 bridge... I have been living here for a decade, literally as of 12 Feb this year, and have come to love and adopt the state as my home. I have to stand up for its rights and for my fellow Arkansans.
As for those of you living in neighboring states, we should be supporting each other as much as we can anyway. Even if you're not an Arkansan, you are a fellow American who is fighting for the same things we are fighting for. I think it would be great to have some unofficial and just simply understood that people, especially those close to borders of other states, will attempt to make it to public events to help their brethren in their efforts.
After all, the news media won't care where people are from, they'll only care about (and show) a large crowd supporting the local group and their speakers. And people, being "peer pressure" by nature, will be more likely to come out to future events if they see larger and larger groups showing up at these things - since the fear of being "one of the very few people there" would be eliminated. I don't know if I can make it far as I am not able to get around very well, but I will certainly try!
