by Tim Mathes, President, Kitsap Alliance of Property Owners
“When we get piled upon one another in large cities, as in Europe,
we shall become as corrupt as Europe.” Thomas Jefferson
Thomas Jefferson was right on when he said that. Today, with the help of the United Nations, we are rapidly moving toward a one world planning disaster called sustainable development. The undisputable facts are that we must fight to keep all of our cherished freedoms.
This is a daunting task, and at times it seems impossible for us to make much of a difference. However, we are not alone. Organizations such as Pacific Legal Foundation ( www.pacificlegal.org ), and The Freedom Foundation ( www.myfreedomfoundation.com ) are in this battle with Kitsap Alliance of Property Owners. These two organizations are helping to spread the word that we are quickly losing our constitutional freedoms. More importantly, they back that contention up with their actions!
Pacific Legal Foundation’s motto is, “‘Rescuing Liberty from Coast to Coast“. We are very lucky to have the PLF regional office in Bellevue, Washington.
Lead attorney for the Northwest Center is Brian Hodges. He has been doing a lot of appeal work on behalf of KAPO, and defending many other property owners here in our state. Brian, along with all the EFF staff is ready and willing to go that extra mile in defense of your liberties.
The Freedom Foundation is celebrating its 20th year of educating the public on Federal and State Constitutional freedoms. The Freedom Foundation stands with KAPO spreading the word that freedom is not free and that the price of freedom is constant vigilance and continued public education about our constitutions.
Mr. Bob Williams, founder of The Freedom Foundation, will be our guest speaker at KAPO’s annual election dinner. The dinner will be on February 24, 2011 at 5:30 PM at the AA China Buffet and is open to the public. Bob’s message is so important to our country and our organization. Please attend and invite someone that needs to hear his words of wisdom.
A simple thanks to staff of both organizations is important but they really need donations to continue and expand their outreach in 2012. I am sure that any donation large or small will be put to good use. Go to www.pacificlegal.org or www.myfreedomfoundation.com and follow the instructions for making a donation.
I would like to thank the 2010 board and officers of KAPO for making last year a success. It has been my honor and privilege to serve as your president this last year.
I will not be running again this year because I believe we need new ideas and a fresh approach from the office of the president. Believe me when I say that without KAPO we would have no representation and voice speaking out against the steady march to take our property.
Thank you all for your continued support and commitment to KAPO.
