I strongly believe in our personal freedoms and God-given rights, many of which are enshrined within the United States Constitution.  I believe our personal freedoms are constantly under attack from liberal and progressive forces.  I encourage all US Citizens to EDUCATE yourself on the Constitution, your freedoms guaranteed therein, and to use only those businesses that support ALL of your freedoms and rights.

I call for a boycott of these businesses or corporations that are taking action to erode your freedoms and rights: Dick's Sporting Goods; Field & Stream; WalMart; Levi's; Chipotle's; Chili's; Starbucks; Sonic; Target; Yeti; Panera Bread; WhataBurger; any business that posts signs on their premises indicating that you must give up any or part of your freedoms and rights to patronize them.
