As devoted parents and concerned citizens, we’ve complained for too long. Government continues to ignore us. They’re making too much money on our children. Action is therefore the only answer. The time has come to get the state out of the “child business” as one Family Court put it. We must demand reform and that time is now.
Momentum continues to build for the first ever National Parenting Convention at the Hotel Utica this weekend in upstate New York. Media coverage and exclusive interviews with celebrity speaker Tim McKyer are introducing the event to the public. Nationwide coverage will depend on the creative energies of each and every follower and advocate we’ve managed to reach since this Convention was first announced in November, 2010.
There is no room for excuses, no more apathy or laziness. These children are our children and our priority. However, to reiterate our rights to rear our own children, to participate meaningfully in their lives, and to remove oppressive barriers upon our liberties, we “must be seen before we can be heard” under an American form of government. The Supreme Court has described our parenting rights as the “oldest liberty interest protected under the Constitution”. Unless we act, we will lose that right. At least one Justice is already seeing to this.
At the Convention, you will be heard, you will learn how to protect yourself, and most of all, your children will be made proud. They will one day know when mom and dad finally declared “enough is enough”. In 1848, a group of 100 men and women came together at the first National Women’s Rights Convention at nearby Seneca Falls, New York. They came by trains and horses with no political support or money. Little did they know, this small group of visionaries would change the world. We look forward to meeting all of you.
