Where Like-Minded People Gather To Preserve Freedom In America

So says the banner image at a new website called Liberty Central, at least. This new site is newsworthy, in part because of who its founder is…and because (though officially non-partisan in nature) it intends to support and encourage citizen activism.

Founder Virginia Thomas (yes…Mrs. Clarence Thomas technically), is quoted in the LA Times thusly:

I am an ordinary citizen from Omaha, Neb., who just may have the chance to preserve liberty along with you and other people like you,” she said at a recent panel discussion with tea party leaders in Washington. Thomas went on to count herself among those energized into action by President Obama’s “hard-left agenda.”

What I like about her emergence onto the scene with the launch of this new venture is the level of enthusiasm and energy she brings to the “citizen activism” movement along with the depth of experience she has in this game. Her bio on the “About” page says she has “30 years of experience within the Washington beltway working alongside esteemed politicians like Dick Armey and for institutions like Hillsdale College, the Heritage Foundation and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce,” and adds that “Ginni is committed to serving as a clearinghouse for new and more effective online activism.”

The detractors will come…they always do when the opposition feels threatened… but this is a fresh new face that further legitimizes citizen activism and the efforts being put forth to stand up against the kinds of things our Government seems hell bent on doing regardless our protestations to the contrary.

That she is married to a Supreme Court Justice and opens herself (and her husband) to extreme scrutiny…and all the future “conflict of interest” charges they KNOW are headed their way…and that she is courageous enough to continue with the project DESPITE this, says a great deal about her moxie and her determination to do what she thinks is right for America.

I suggest you visit the site, sign up for the newsletter, and donate if you are so inclined…

[Note: And, no-I am not in any way affiliated with the group...and neither is RS...I just like seeing people stand up and stand in the way of a Government run amok-no MATTER who they are. We need all the help we can get in this fight.]
