Tenth Amendment Center: Big Changes Starting with Little Changes

On Nov. 1, I spoke to the Oakland County, Mich. Campaign for Liberty meeting via Skype to talk about the power of local activism. I followed a call-in by Ron Paul, so I definitely had to be on my A-game! I think I at least held my own.

The discussion centered on local activism I’m engaged in working to increase oversight and transparency for government surveillance programs in Lexington, Ky. I explained the work I’m doing and how I got involved, and I also filled the audience in on the lawsuit the city filed against me over an open records request. But the thrust of my message focused on the importance and power of local activism.

“I really think that’s where we’re going to make a difference. I have very little faith that we’re going to change Washington D.C. I have a little bit of faith we might be able to change Lansing or Frankfort, Kentucky. But I know we can do big things at the local level and those will grow together and push their way up through the system. Eventually we can make those big changes by starting with little changes.”

 if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.
