We have had one awesome year, with guests that have included authors, legislators, anchors, a former Bronco, a former governor, a former presidential candidate, a radio talk show host, academia, think tank leaders, party chairs, and the list goes on. Thanks for the memories and thank you for making a difference.

Oh, BTW, we might have some press up on the roof, so let’s pack the house (and the weather forecast holds hope we can take it outside!) We’ll be giving a prize to the attendee that shows up with the most new patriot faces – bring out your friends!

This will be your last chance to purchase some of our mega-cool stickers to sport at the upcoming Tea Party rally. We’d really appreciate your donations to expand our mission as the nation’s premier “Educational Drink Tank” – the small sticker is $1, the larger stickers are $3, or two for $5.

Heartfelt thanks to all our members, and especially our charter members.

12/21 Holiday Event at Independence Institute

Liberty On The Rocks (Red Rocks) started with a bang thanks to the support of all the local chapters and we plan to end the year even bigger with a Holiday Picnic Bonanza at the Big House (Independence Institute) with none other than (cigar) Smokin’ Jon Caldara.

So kick up your boots, pack a pic-i-nic basket, bring some libations, and maybe something to share.  Dress so as not to impress and let’s hold a politically incorrect party with our favorite think tank to close out the year.

What’s the same?

Time: 5-7pm

Day: Monday, (December 21st)

The Main Event : Jon Caldara at 6:00

What’s different?

Up on the Roof! becomes Raise the Roof! (this night only) with all local Liberty On The Rocks chapters participating in this special event.  We want this to be fun and memorable — we might even have some karaoke on tap!

Location: Independence Institute

Also, we took a poll, and, by popular lack of demand, NO MEET-UP JANUARY 4TH, to allow full recovery from the holidays.  (Not to mention, Ben DeGrow might need an intervention after the Bucks kick some Duck quack.)

Denver 9/12 Rally

It’s always nice to be surrounded by those who understand the importance of liberty, and it’s even better when they are people who plan to fight for it.  That was the feeling I got from this past rally on the steps of the state capitol in Denver, Colorado.  There was a good turnout of about 1,500-2,500 people (I’m terrible at estimating, but I got the figures from a few other sources).  Those who spoke discussed the importance of liberty and the reasons why we must get it back in this country, as it has been missing for some time.

One of the speakers, Jon Caldara of the Independence Institute, made it clear that we the people are the last line of defense against the onslaught of socialism.  It will not be up to the politicians in the next few years to determine the fate of the country, it will be up to us.  And we MUST take a stand! Watch the second half of his speech:

Jon Caldara Speaks at Denver 9/12 Rally

I could not agree more with this assertion and so I urge everyone to do what they can to fight for freedom.  It can be as simple as using your voice.  Tell your friends, your family and your neighbors.  Educate yourself on the issues to be sure you can fully articulate the morality of capitalism and free markets.  From there, spread the word!  America needs us to fight for liberty  – so who is with me?
