    09.12.09 March on Washington ^ | July 20, 2009 | Jim Robinson
    <p>Free Republic is a co-sponsor of the 9-12 March on DC. We are not the organizer. There are several grassroots organizations involved. We're just one of the co-sponsoring organizations.</p> <p>Like the thousands of protests our FReepers have organized, co-sponsored, or attended in the past, it is a peaceful protest. There has never been any violence at any of our protests. Ever! And NONE of them ever have been armed protests. Neither is this one. No arms. No violence.</p>
  • If we could get millions of Americans to march on Washington, what would we do?

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."</p>
