Freedom 21 Conference in Dallas spotlights National Sovereignty
Colleen Nolan, State Director for Concerned Women for America (CWA) of Illinois, and CWA of Illinois members Bernie Wolinski and Nancy Czerwiec recently traveled to Dallas, Texas, for the 9th Annual Freedom 21 Conference. Freedom 21 was formed "to better coordinate our efforts to prevail over those people who continue to promote and advance policies that empower government to ignore the principles of freedom, in pursuit of an unachievable social and environmental utopia."
Freedom 21 was attended by such noted organizations as Corridor Watch, OK-Safe, Eagle Forum, American Policy Center, Real ID center, Free Enterprise Society and the National Center for Constitutional Studies. State legislators were present, including Senator Randy Brogdon (R-Oklahoma, District 34) and Representative Jon Wright (R-Oklahoma, District 76). The clarion call for citizen vigilance and action was raised by noted conservative leader Phyllis Schlafly and well-known author Jerome Corsi, whose best-selling book, The Late Great U.S.A., has brought much needed attention to both governmental organizations and businesses that are impacting our national sovereignty.
Concerns about the United Nations (U.N.), the North American Union (NAU), the Real ID Act, and the issue of global warming were presented and discussed in light of our national sovereignty. Expert research clearly showed the gathering momentum and forces that severely undermine our Constitution, our Declaration of Independence, and our ability to remain a nation governed by "We the people."
Without exception, every conference speaker agreed that the only effective solution is to ignite the grassroots' movement at the local level. Texas, for example, has been successful through local grassroots action in halting the Trans-Texas Highway, and Oklahoma has been successful at the local level, too. Sen. Brogdon said that if the Texas state legislature plans at any time in the future to continue with the Trans-Texas highway, then they had better build a turn-around at the Oklahoma border because the highway is not coming into Oklahoma!
The conference speakers were eloquent, prayerful and unwilling to let our U.S. sovereignty be destroyed or undermined on their watch. One speaker tearfully noted, "It was never God's plan that man have dominion over man but that God have dominion over man." We need to stand with them in their vigilance.
There is no better honor than to uphold God's law upon which our Constitution was modeled. It is to your state's advantage, your community's advantage, and your family's advantage to understand our nation's current sovereignty issues by reviewing the DVD presentation of the conference.
