Under One Banner
On December 12, 1774. the deputies of the Province of Maryland met at Annapolis. They prepared what is called the Maryland Resolves , within which we find the following:
"Resolved unanimously, that it is recommended to the several colonies and provinces to enter into such or the like resolutions, for mutual defense and protection, as are entered into by this province. As our opposition to the settled plan of the British administration to enslave America will be strengthened by a union of all ranks of men in this province, we do most earnestly recommend that all former differences about religion or politics, and all private animosities and quarrels of every kind, from henceforth cease and be forever buried in oblivion; and we entreat, we conjure every man by his duty to God, his country, and his posterity, cordially to unite in defense of our common rights and liberties."
Well before the Declaration of Independence, the colonists realized the necessity of joining together, and, more particularly, to put "all animosities and quarrels of every kind" aside.
We need to learn from them and to join together in our common cause of forcing the government back into obedience to the Constitution.
We need to put aside our disagreements, our egos, our ridicule of others who are seeking the same goal through different channels, our animosities, and, our resentment of small issues upon which we disagree -- for the common good.
Does it matter if we don't obtain all that we, as individuals, might want, in favor of receive most of what we desire? Does it matter if one small thing that we are opposed to is included within an overall effort that stands an enormously greater probability of success?
Read the "You Have Tread On Me - Petition" and see if you find that, at least, three-fourths of the of the Demands set forth will not be objectionable, at all, to you. And, if that is the case, and if it will address the problem that you have chosen as your banner, would it not be in the best interest of all of us to join together, Under One Banner, to achieve success by sheer numbers?
Let us all join together in a common purpose. Support the Petition; send it to all that you know and encourage their participation; encourage others to support it; and, do so understanding the importance of achieving our goal -- before other means become the only means to Restore our Republic.
Let your voice be heard by signing and delivering the You Have Tread On Me - Petition to your Representative and Senators
