FReeper Pace Car to lead Minuteman Caravan to DC -- (see pic with JimRob!)
spiritofallegiance.com ^ | 5-2-06 | Doug from Upland

Posted on 05/02/2006 11:14:34 AM PDT by doug from upland

The Minutemen will be starting the first leg tomorrow, led by FReeper Lyman Stucky's patriotic pace car. We want the borders sealed!

Allegiance is not an option!
Citizenship Requires Allegiance--
if you refuse to pledge and prove Allegiance to
The United States Of America and OUR Flag,
Where, WHERE, IS your Allegiance?
-- FReeper Lyman Stucky (The Spirit Of Allegiance), May 1, 2006

Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. -- Theodore Roosevelt

Hi, Fellow Americans and Neighbors. I'm glad you're here.

I own and drive The Spirit Of Allegiance car, set to depart Los Angeles May 3, heading for Crawford TX and then to go on to Washington DC to demand that President Bush and Congress seal our borders and ensure our sovereignty as a nation, physically and spiritually, One Nation Under God. The Pledge of Allegiance and the situation on our Republic's borders are very much connected. Spiritually. And Patriotically. Our nation's borders have to do with our nation's sovereignty physically just as much as the Newdow and other God-hating atheist cases have to do with our acknowledgement of God's sovereignty spiritually

A little background is important...and it all ties together...
This site was launched in 2002 to fight Michael Newdow's anti-American attack in cahoots with certain treacherous fellow-traveler Marxist judges who have not thrown his cases out as being frivolous and without standing.

Here is the Pace Car that will lead the way through Crawford and on to D.C. (JimRob won't be in it, but would you like to be?)

Basically this is great. But it would be better if his car didn't say "Gitmo limo service" - that could easily be misinterpreted.

MINUTEMAN ANNOUNCEMENT

Minuteman Caravan Moves Forward
The Minuteman Caravan will be a positive statement for the citizens of the United States of America. The Minutemen will drive from Los Angeles California to Washington D.C. Major rallies will be held in Phoenix, Crawford Texas and then concluding on May 12th in Washington D.C.

Who: Minuteman Caravan
What: Starting Point
When: 8:00 A.M. May 3rd
Where:
Leimert Park
4395 Leimert Boulevard
Los Angeles, CA 90008

Minuteman Caravan to Kick-Off in Downtown Los Angeles, L.A. rally to highlight job losses in African-American Community

Los Angeles, CA - Highlighting the concern with job losses to illegal aliens of American citizens and legal immigrant, particularly in the African-American community, the Minuteman Project will kick-off a cross-country caravan in downtown Los Angeles, CA.

“Over 40% of black teenagers are unemployed. Overall unemployment in the black community is double that of white Americans,” said Minuteman Founder Jim Gilchrist. “They are the most harmed by illegal immigration and it’s time we focused our efforts in our inner cities where help is needed most.”

According to a report by the Center for Immigration Studies, “Half of the 2.3 million increase in immigrant employment since 2000 is estimated to be from illegal immigration.”

Meanwhile, “Between March of 2000 and 2004, the number of citizens adult natives increased by 2.3 million, while the number of employed adult immigrants increased by 2.3 million.” Clearly, illegal immigrants are taking jobs that Americans would be willing to do. Illegal immigrant employment also depresses wages for all Americans.

“All American’s have a common interest in ending illegal immigration,” commented Minuteman Project Executive Director Steve Eichler J.D. “We need to take care of our own citizens before we allow illegal aliens to take jobs from our citizens who need them most.”

The Minuteman Caravan will drive home to the political leaders of the United States that the American people are fed up with their lack of response to the most important issue in protecting our nation’s security.

The Minuteman Caravan will be a positive statement for the citizens of the United States of America. The Minutemen will drive from Los Angeles California to Washington D.C. Major rallies will be held in Phoenix, Crawford Texas and then concluding on May 12th in Washington D.C.

Please join us!

Senator Tom McClintock Meets With SOA Executive Director Lyman Stucky At Well Attended Fundraiser
September 19, 2003
By B. Raymond Trottier

It was a warm and electrifying Summer evening at the Etiwanda Gardens in Etiwanda, California Friday night as an unexpected overflow crowd brought Etiwanda¡¯s largest reception room to full capacity. They came from all over the Inland Empire, mostly members of the Inland Valley Republican Assembly that quickly swelled with over 100 walk-ins to hear Senator Tom McClintock make his speech during his campaign swing through Southern California.

The Senator is running for Governor among a highly diversified field of candidates in an historic gubernatorial recall campaign generating in record time the greatest number of recall petition signatures in any state's history. Current Democratic Governor Gray Davis' approval rating, hovering around 22%, is shockingly lower than any State Governor in history. Major accounting firms back East accused the Governor of gross fiscal mismanagement over the past two years and the public is outraged. The Governor's solution include the now infamous tripling of the car registration tax.

This was the scene in which our Executive Director of the Spirit of Allegiance had a heartfelt opportunity to speak privately to Senator McClintock while presenting him with copies prepared by the SOA of a remarkable speech the Senator made last year on "Why The Pledge of Allegiance Matters". The Senator was taken by surprise as he had all but forgotten his insightful speech on the Pledge of Allegiance where he explains so clearly the importance of keeping the Pledge as it is; retaining God as the divine law-giver, not man, an error the Senator pointed out made by the French that brought disaster. Senator McClintock was very flattered SOA Executive Director Lyman Stucky had found the speech so profound to not only place it prominently on the Spirit of Allegiance web site but establish a campaign to circulate copies to the community. The obvious help this give his campaign is overshadowed, in the eyes of Lyman Stucky, by the fact that our Constitution, the Pledge of Allegiance and other precepts of modern Democracy in America have come under systematic and successful attacks in recent history.

The SOA acquired the speech some time ago for insertion into the Spirit of Allegiance web site. However, upon hearing the news that the good Senator has decided to run for Governor of California, the speech took on new and important meaning to the SOA and to his campaign.

Copies of the Senator's speech were printed and distributed by members of the Spirit of Allegiance staff to be personally distributed to all the Chambers of Commerce throughout the Southern California Inland Empire.

What time are they leaving from LA tomorrow and from where? I saw a map above, but it didn't look in the least familiar. Great pictures . . . I'll keep all in my prayers and may it be the ride of your life :)! Love the Gitmo Limo Service.

FRiends--I knew this day would come, when I must leave...not leave FreeRepublic, but leave my old screenname and my relative anonymity.

Duty Calls and I have stepped forward publicly. I will not be silent. I will stand up for what's right. Please stand with me for ALL that America was founded to stand for and keep me in your prayers. It is not only at weddings that you must SPEAK NOW, OR FOREVER HOLD YOUR PEACE.

Please go out, somehow and do likewise. You know more than your neighbors--print out a page of TRUTH--FACTS from FR or wherever--and you can influence one mind at a time--and that can multiply. Grace and Truth, in that order and both essential.

I will from now on be posting, when time permits, as The Spirit Of Allegiance. Please forgive any inability to respond to posts. But do know that I will AT LEAST be lurking from time to time... Like Jim Robinson warns, this site is indeed addictive. But hey, so is water...and oxygen... ;^)

I had the privilege of attending the 2005 Fresno Chapter Rally and Picnic and the honor of having Jim Robinson grace the wheel of The Spirit Of Allegiance, shown in the picture above. Rush, that Gitmo Limo is a hat tip to you!

God Bless FreeRepublic, God Bless Jim Robinson and God Bless THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!


Your Ambassador of Patriotism,
Lyman

I think of Gitmo as a neccesary evil, not something to be celebrated and certainly not something we want to bring up in the context of the peaceful and legitimate work of the Minute Men.

I did get that. I think it is a strategic error to equate people who blow up buildings full of civilians with people trying to jump the immigration line and criminally enter the country. I think that analogy will backfire politically.

Lets focus on border security, deportations and arresting employers while blocking any kind of amnesty rather than raising the specter of a Guantanamo style solution. But its just one decal on one car so I'm not saying its a big deal.

Thanks for the great work and best luck for your trip.

But please watch out for human-overloaded vehicles speeding at full throttle in your lane.

Seriously though, can you post a map of your route so FReepers near it can cheer you on?
