The Patriot's Pledge
The Patriot's Pledge is a project inspired by a colleague of mine and his wife, who had the original idea to take the word "patriot" back from the neocons who have misused and misapplied it to their progressive, big government policy of never-ending, global warfare.
It is not patriotic to devalue a nation's currency. No, it is not patriotic to treat our finest young men and women like pawns by over-deploying them to fight ethnic civil wars in Afghanistan instead of focusing on our real enemy- Al Qaeda. It is certainly not patriotic to usurp our own nation's Constitution in countless ways and threaten a free people with police statism.
A true patriot opposes such policies. A true patriot does not want his or her name used to defend such policies. With the high likelihood of another 9/11 magnitude terrorist attack within the next few months according to top experts, we wanted to give Americans a chance to have this discussion now, before another terrorist attack hits, while cool heads and sound reasoning are more likely to prevail.
We simply cannot afford to continue doing what we've done for the past ten years. Visit the site. Read the pledge. And please sign it if you agree with it.
(I did the design work, branding, web development, the promotional video, and much of the copy writing. If you need any of this work done for your website or business, check out more details here.)
