Patriot Convention

Why I Can Vote With a Clear Conscience

This is the one election that in all of our history is a fork in the road that we had better choose wisely.

This next president will appoint several Supreme Court justices.

That alone should be enough to make everyone sit up and take notice.

If HRC is allowed to stack that Supreme Court, the country is gone.

It is that serious. There is no turning back, none.

We will not have the luxury to say, we can hang for another 4 years.

The communist planks are all in place…

...that ball is at the finish line and just needs that last punt over the goal posts and it is game over.

That one issue will have ramifications for decades.

Your children and grandkids will experience the full weight of that one issue alone.

Your State: The Primary Unit of Political Allegiance


It was easy for Robert E. Lee of Virginia and Zebulon Vance of North Carolina to take up swords in defense of their respective States, as both saw them as “their country.” To adhere to their State’s enemies would have been treason as delineated in the United States Constitution.

Bernhard Thuersam, Chairman
North Carolina War Between the States Sesquicentennial Commission
"The Official Website of the North Carolina WBTS Sesquicentennial"
Primary Unit of Political Allegiance:

“Central to [traditional interpretations of the Revolution and Jeffersonian America] is the old reality of American political life that the State was the primary unit of political allegiance, the chief locus of political identity, and the level at which most significant political questions were decided in the Early Republic.

It should be unsurprising that in the absence of television, radio, news magazines, national newspapers, air travel, interstate highways, the Internet, and even cheap postal service, and in a day when very few people went away to college, it was uncommon for anyone to “think continentally.”

When Virginians argued about what a republic should be, then, their concern was almost never some Platonic ideal republic, nor even the United States, but their own Old Dominion.”

(Virginia’s American Revolution, Kevin R.C. Gutzman, Lexington Books, 2007, page 4)
