i', 14B Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter DESJARDIN, from page 11B Unfortunately, our government has crippled this model through massive manipulation and over-regulation. The Declaration of Independence states that all men are created equal, not just a select few or a particular race or those who are politically connected -- it says all men. When government takes power away from the people and puts it in the hands and fills the pocketbooks of themselves and special interest groups, and when we allow multiple layers of unelected and unaccountable bureaucrats to take away our rights in the interest of a few, that equality is lost. The declaration also proclaims, "... governments ... derive (ing) their just powers from the consent of the governed." Our Constitution limits the scope of the government: it is only allowed to take on the power we assign it. Over time, the government has usurped that authority for itself. We believe our officials must follow the law and fulfill their oath to uphold and defend the Constitution. We recognize these are lofty goals and that it will take time to reverse the damage to our republic that has already occurred. But if we do not take on the challenge now, our children and grandchildren will never know the America we grew up in. America has made mistakes in the past. To expect a country not to make any errors in over 200 years is unrealistic. But, working together, we can learn from the past and build a better future because of it. Our goal is to educate the public and bring attention to the problems we find in government at all levels. It is then up to the public to recognize the dangers we face and take part in rectifying them. That is the only way to preserve and protect liberty for our children. Like the founders of this nation who fought against incredible odds to gain independence and freedom from England, we will not all agree on every point. So our task is to find commonality, not to encourage division based on politics, race, gender or other superficial criteria. We are all in this together.

Please check our website for more information and links to many resources. And watch for our ads and announcements in the local newspapers; we would love to have ou join us. NANCY A BIRTHDAY THOUGHT SEPTEMBER 24, 1999 September's fall reminds me of our age, As oaks grow yellow from the cold and damp, As autumn's blazes all around us rage, And Plumas County locks its local camp. The season of our lives may now be fall, Our springs and summers long gone past their prime, Our freshest moments gone beyond recall, Our inner springs now winding out of time; But it's the time we celebrate your birth, And I renew how lucky I have been To share your timeless spring upon this earth When aU's been autumn-gold yet ever-green, When I am always taken by surprise To find our youth reflected in your eyes.
