Legislative Update - January 2018
“This Department is committed to protecting the civil and constitutional rights of all individuals and to prosecuting hate crime violence. Every American, regardless of race, religion, sex, or sexual orientation must be safe from violence and criminality.
We will also not shy away from defending the First Amendment rights of every American. We stand ready to enforce federal law, to protect the right to speak and to assemble peacefully, and to defend the free exercise of religion at a time when it is under threat.” – Attorney General Jeff Sessions
Ok sir. I will take you at your word and expect this to happen and that you will uphold this statement across ALL our states. But I am not going to stop fighting for what is right!
We are in a time when, so many feel they are not being allowed the freedoms and rights allowed under our Constitution. I really try to take what our governmental leadership says at face value. I always have and don’t care who sits in what chair. To me, they are all the same. They are out for their own survival. I’ve said that before.
The only way we can get real positive change done in our state is for everyone to participate in the process. Now I’m not asking you to be on a committee, or be a chapter officer. I will be asking every member of ABATE to do one thing a quarter for motorcycle rights. I will be letting you know what’s going on, but I need your support and presence at times.
OPENING DAY – JANUARY 8th
I need as many people to come down to the state capital for the opening day rally. There will be all sorts of organizations there and we need to be able to show up in force. I understand responsibilities like work, family, etc. That’s why I will be doing other activist events throughout the month, each month. If I can put in over 40 hours a week being your lobbyist, all I’m asking for you is to be part of the team and give me a few hours every couple of months.
See you January 8th.
Freedom is a team sport!
