President's Message

Sacrifices Made, Sacrifices Repaid

Barbecues, beaches, blow out sales.  A day to hit the road. The unofficial start of summer. For some, Memorial Day has become just another three-day weekend.  But for many, the day is and should be so much more than any of those celebrations. It is the day to memorialize those who have died protecting the liberty of these United States of America.

On May 5, 1862, General John A. Logan, head of a group of Northern Civil War veterans, called for May 30 to be a nationwide day of remembrance “for the purpose of strewing with flowers, or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during the late rebellion and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet churchyard in the land.” The date of Decoration Day, as he called it, was chosen because it wasn’t the anniversary of any battle and remained May 30 for nearly a century, until 1968, when, unsurprisingly, Congress passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which established Memorial Day as the last Monday in May to create a three-day weekend for federal employees.  Despite this congressional degradation, Memorial Day still prods us to recognize the great sacrifices our service members made to create and defend the rights and freedoms we enjoy. We have the right to agree or disagree with positions of the government and the party in power, freedom of religion and freedom from government. Since freedom is now the norm, it is like air, not noticed until it is threatened or gone. And, our freedoms, and rights, and way of life are under attack. In Democracy in America, Alexis de Tocqueville worried that someday America would lose its liberty to “…a network of small complicated rules…reducing “citizens to sheep with the government their shepherd.” He termed this soft tyranny.  And, as long as millions of Americans trade their votes for entitlements, we will suffer the slow erosion of independence.  Freedom is neglected because we are not required to do anything with it. But, if we do not use our freedom well, we may as well not be free.  It doesn't matter what limits the Constitution puts on government officials' power, if they can exceed those limits without any adverse consequences. The Constitution cannot protect us if we don't protect the Constitution and vote against anyone who violates it. If we don’t, the next generations may see the Constitution as quaint words that people once took seriously. The defense of liberty, like the defense of peace, requires more than lip service. It requires vigilance, military strength, and the willingness to take risks and to make sacrifices. The surest guarantor of both peace and liberty is our unflinching resolve to defend that which has been purchased for us by our fallen heroes. Let us resolve as a club to work for the survival and the success of liberty and do what we can to make our towns, cities, county and country better places to live. Each club member is valued and significant in this endeavor, no matter the time you can devote or tasks you can perform.  Let’s show that we, who promote the first principles of freedom - the sanctity of life and private property, individual liberty, the rule of law, the free market, and the moral superiority of individual choice and responsibility over coercion and bribery - are alive, kicking and politically engaged.  Those who served would approve and appreciate.

Have a barbecue.  Go to the beach. Go to a parade.  Enjoy your freedom and use your freedom well. Remember to say a prayer and remember those who sacrificed so much for our nation so that we may have that freedom.  Honor and enjoy Memorial Day.

Tim Taylor, President
