JBS Activism Checklist: Boots-on-the-Ground Plan

Written by  Monday, 17 July 2017 19:54

Today’s political atmosphere looks nothing like what the founding fathers envisioned establishing in America. Thus far the federal government’s usurpations of powers not granted to it by the Constitution and power grabs by the globalists have led the United States down the wrong path. When Robert Welch started The John Birch Society, he viewed it as the only solution. He assembled paid staff and volunteer leaders to organize effective boots-on-the-ground activism. His plan consisted of a nationwide network of locally organized small chapters, which focused primarily on educating opinion molders and voters.

In order to preserve our freedoms, sufficient understanding is essential for explaining the principles of our country’s Founders, the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution, and a belief that our rights come from God and not the government. Members of The John Birch Society start by educating themselves, educating others, and eventually creating informed electorates all across the nation. But you don’t have to be a member to get started!
How many of these can you check off your list?
Educate yourself: 
Know the Basics on Key Issues: (Ones you’re passionate about!)
Read Crucial John Birch Society literature:
Educate Others:
¨ Ask people what concerns them and share constitutional solutions
¨ Organize tables and booths at fairs and parades
¨ Share TNA and JBS content through email and social media
Organize speaking engagements and DVD showings:
¨ Freedom’s Voices national speakers bureau
Influence your local leaders:
¨ Call and visit them with educational material on specific issues (also get others to call)
¨ Show up at town hall meetings…Pack the house!
¨  Use JBS legislative action alerts and forward to others
Of course, this only skims the surface of JBS’s plan. But if we consciously and consistently educate ourselves and others, then we can create an informed electorate to create less government, more responsibility and with God’s help a better world! By holding our elected officials accountable to the high standard that our members hold each other to, we can continue to inform them of top issues to strengthen their voting adherence to the Constitution. We invite you to meet with the Field Coordinator for your area to start or get involved in a chapter today!
