    Having followed the link to the official site of the Second Ammendment March, and from there to the "States" page, I was surprised to see that there hasn't been an event organized here in Washington for those that can't make it to D.C.

    I got a letter from Front Sight asking that we print out and pass along the "DON'T TREAD ON ME" flag to everyone we know and mail them out to the president, congress, and representatives from everyone we know on April 19th (my birthday). This seems like a good, silent message that being passed around that we will not stand for injustice. I will post the letter when i'm at home and on the computer today.

    HERE IS THE LINK TO THE FLAG: http://www.ignatius-piazza-front-sig...ead-on-me.html

    When I started this blog, 100 Mondays ago, I didn't think it would grow so fast. We now have over 275,000 subscribers who read my posts and forward them on to their family and friends.
    Over 275,000 subscribers and growing is a number I want you to remember because collectively, with the power of the Internet, 275,000 subscribers can make history and in doing so influence a much needed and proper "change" in the direction our country is heading!
    I'm serious and not only am I going to prove it to you, I am going to make it so simple for you be a part of making history through influencing a much needed and proper change in the direction of our country, and I'm going to reward you greatly for doing so!
    Here is what I mean...
    As you know, there are a number of organizations that have conducted marches and events to send a clear message to our government that the Silent Majority in this country are more than unhappy with the direction America is heading.
    The discontent has no party lines. We are disillusioned with and distrustful of "politicians" in general and that includes Democrats and Republicans. Basically, we are damn tired of the Constitution and Bill of Rights being ignored, our freedoms trampled, and those we elect continuing to forget who they are supposed to serve... WE THE PEOPLE.
    As you are well aware the, Tea Party Movement is holding numerous rallies in cities across the country through April 15th. The Second Amendment March on Washington, DC is happening on April 19. These are great events that will attract a significant amount of people attending, but there is no way that the "Silent Majority" will be properly represented because we cannot ALL attend.
    But WE THE PEOPLE, the Silent Majority who are armed, understand our rights, and recognize that the current batch of elected servants in Washington, DC just don't "get it" can send a clear and concise warning to the government that will make our Founding Fathers smile from above and send a cold chill down the spines of those failing to "...preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States."
    Here is how easy you can make history and influence a much needed and proper "change" in the direction of our country!
    Step 1. Print out FIVE COPIES of the most descriptive flag in American history, the symbol Benjamin Franklin felt was the most appropriate for the revolution when he wrote, "She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. ... she never wounds 'till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her."
    Step 2. Fold one of the 8 1/2 x 11 inch flags and insert it into an envelope addressed the President of the United States. The President's address is:
    President Barack Obama
    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
    Washington, DC 20500
    Fold another and insert it into an envelope addressed to your Federal Representative. Fold another two flags and address them to each of your Senators in Washington, DC.
    Place all four envelopes in the mail so they are postmarked MONDAY, APRIL 19th. Why April 19th? Because April 19th is the anniversary of the "Shot Heard Round the World." On that day in 1775, our forefathers stood their ground against British tyranny in the Battle of Old North Bridge at Concord, Massachusetts.
    Save the FIFTH FLAG for the reward I will give you after April 19th. That fifth flag will be worth thousands of dollars to you to show my thanks for your participation in sending a clear message to our government that the Silent Majority in this country will not tolerate the direction America is heading.
    Step 3. Forward this email to your family and friends, everyone on your e-mail lists, and place it on all the chat rooms you frequent. Make this April 19th postmark "Don't Tread on Me" mail campaign go viral throughout the Internet and OVERWHELM our elected officials in Washington, DC so they know, without a doubt, that the Silent Majority, who understand the Constitution -- whether Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or undeclared are NOT TO BE TREAD UPON!
    Remember I told you that I would prove to you that as one of the 275,000 subscribers to my blog, collectively, with the power of the Internet, you can make history and in doing so influence a much needed and proper "change" in the direction of our country!
    Well here is the proof...
    If you and my other subscribers follow all three steps and just ONE of the people you send this email to does the same, and just ONE of the people they send this email to does the same, and just ONE of the people they send this email to does the same, and so on... by April 19th, TENS OF MILLIONS of "Don't Tread on Me" letters will flood Washington, DC throughout the week of April 19th creating a thunderous "shot heard round the world" that the media and every elected official cannot ignore!
    All it takes to make YOUR shot heard round the world is to follow the 3 simple steps above.
    And remember to save the fifth flag you print out for the amazing reward I am going to give on April 20th to YOU and everyone who participates in the Monday, April 19th "Don't Tread on Me" postal mail campaign. Believe me when I say it is worth thousands of dollars to you and will dwarf everything I have done as the "Millionaire Patriot" to date!
    Follow the three simple steps above and get ready to fire your shot with your "Don't Tread on Me" postal mail drop on Monday, April 19th, 2010.
    Our Founding Fathers stood their ground against the greatest military machine of their time, sacrificing EVERYTHING to win our freedom. Let's show Washington, DC that the blood of our forefathers is still pumping through the arteries of the Silent Majority and we are rattling a warning... Don't Tread on US!
    Follow the 3 Simple Steps above TODAY and get ready to fire your shot with tens of millions of your fellow patriots through the Monday, April 19th "Don't Tread on Me" postal mail drop!
    Thanks for your patriotism.

    PS Here are some great links that give you more history on the "Don't Tread on Me" flag.
