Virginia Republican Creed

We Believe . . .

That the free enterprise system is the most productive supplier of human needs and economic justice

That all individuals are entitled to equal rights, justice, and opportunities and should assume their responsibilities as citizens in a free society

That fiscal responsibility and budgetary restraints must be exercised at all levels of government

That the Federal Government must preserve individual liberty by observing constitutional limitations

That peace is best preserved through a strong national defense

That faith in God, as recognized by our Founding Fathers, is essential to the moral fibre of the Nation.

In God We Trust License Plate
On Your License Plates?
My friend, Dean Welty from Harrisonburg is working to have Virginia license plates with the national motto "In God We Trust" on them.  In order to have this pass the General Assembly, he needs to have 350 people commit to purchasing them when they are issued.  This requires filling out a DMV form and sending in a $10 fee (refundable if the plates don't pass).  Many states already have "In God We Trust" license plates.  If you would like to see these plates in Virginia, click here to download the form and send it to the address at the top of the form.

We are "Getting Our Liberty On" at Liberty Central and we hope you will join us as we celebrate this important gift from our Founders.

Dear Patriot,

Liberty Central is excited to announce a video contest that will give you the opportunity to win an all-expense paid trip to Washington, DC.  The winner of this contest will meet Liberty Central's founder and CEO, Ginni Thomas, in addition to the other Liberty Central staff, as we all participate in a really cool march: the 2nd Annual March on DC on September 12, 2010.  (See time lapse video of traffic camera from last year's event here )

We have more exciting news - Scott Leigh (see more about Scott at wrote and produced a song for Liberty Central entitled "Get Your Liberty On."  Scott's freedom to compose music and use his creativity is a great example of why experiencing the joys of Liberty in America is so important. 

Check out Liberty Central's Song and Video about this Contest here.

Following on Scott's theme, we ask that you put on your thinking hat, get your creative juices flowing, and produce your own short video showing how you, your family, your friends, or your co-workers experience Liberty in America. 

It's time to Get Your Liberty On!      


Here are some ideas to spark your creativity:

  • Children playing, having fun, and jumping on a trampoline as they Get Their Liberty On!
  • A dancer joyfully dancing because she is Getting Her Liberty On!
  • A runner leaping over an object as they leap for liberty and Get Their Liberty On!
  • Your family's video of exploring American historical sites to show how you Get Your Liberty On!
  • Someone at a town hall asking tough questions and showing others how to Get Your Liberty On!
  • A new American citizen explaining the feeling of liberty as he or she Gets Their Liberty On!
  • Pictures of a tea party rally where great Americans Get Their Liberty On!
  • A military veteran speaking about fighting for liberty and protecting our right to Get Our Liberty On!
  • An immigrant speaking about the greatness of our nation!


For even more inspiration, please go to Liberty Central's online store, where you can find lots of fun gear to wear in the video!

There are a lot of ideas and you probably have one in your head right now.  Jot the idea down, call your friends, and send us a video of how you Get Your Liberty On, or how you are stretching to express support for Liberty!

As an added bonus, you can even use Scott's music in your video, which can be purchased inexpensively at  However, you are free to use any music that you choose or no music at all!

The contest runs from Sunday, August 15th through Sunday, August 29th and the winner will be announced via email and on our website on September 2nd.

The Grand Prize for the winning video is an all-expense paid trip to Washington, DC on September 11th through September 13th, 2010.  On September 12th, the winner will march for liberty with the Liberty Central staff in the 2nd Annual March on DC.  The winner will receive a roundtrip ticket from their hometown to Washington, DC and a hotel room for September 11th and 12th.  The winner will also receive $200 for purchasing food, tips, and other incidentals.

Memo To Our Organizational Friends

To view this email as a web page, go here.

LC Logo Cropped


MEMO from LIBERTY CENTRAL to our 378 organizational friends across the conservative movement and over 460 new grassroots citizen leaders!

Dear Colleagues in the Movement:

President Obama's policies are fundamentally transforming the United States, meaning that there are only 80 days until the most important election in our lifetime. You and I are doubling down our efforts because our unique vantage points give us the eyes to see and the ears to hear what is happening.  To best leverage our capabilities, I humbly ask that we consider even more ways of working together in the coming days, weeks, and months - to preserve what makes this country great.  We welcome your suggestions to the possible opportunities and are showcasing three below.


Every day, we see "new citizen activists" who have yet to encounter the abundance of resources within the "established conservative" community. We see devoted Hill staff working with weary elected patriots who defend conservatism on the Hill, but don't know the best ways to connect with the new, emerging citizen activists. We see tea party folks who also care about national security or religious liberty issues and want a way to raise the profile of these issues, as well as the economic and limited government issues most focus on so well already.  We see an "entrepreneurial class" that is hemorrhaging from its losses, but is scared to death of collaborating with many of us.  We see the alternative media way ahead of us all, starting with talk radio hosts who identify problems at the onset of the issue, while the mainstream media continues to act as a lapdog for the Obama Administration's propaganda and elitism.

Most important, we know that so many of us care for the Constitution and founding principles like free enterprise, limited government, individual liberty, personal responsibility, and national security.  We also understand that a common core of Americans is rising up to protect these principles against the very Ruling Class elitists that Angelo Codevilla wrote of here in the American Spectator and of which Rush Limbaugh spoke on July 19th.

Did you notice that the left's reaction to the tea party movement was to form a One Nation coalition of 175 groups? This is the battle of our lifetime and, in order to be our most effective, we must connect with each other. There are many emerging and existing partnerships and we simply want to aid that sort of informal but effective collaboration.

Ours is not a partisan exercise; it is about founding principles and restoring what is great about America before it is too late.  No partner of ours believes in a third party, but many of us do see problems in both parties.  This exercise is about principles, not parties, and it just may be "The Next Reagan Revolution" that we are about to experience.

Liberty Central's Latest Focus is a flexible, fast website that gives those of us in "Paul and Paulette Revere" mode the capability to spread the word quickly to others.  We focus on the largest threats to our founding principles and look for partners along the way. Our vision is to equip citizen leaders to lobby for liberty.

We humbly offer to partner with you to build the connectivity that continues to bind us together as a movement with smarter efforts and smarter messaging, allowing folks to not reinvent any wheels.  Our website serves as a tool for gathering, and we welcome ways to partner and promote your issues and matters of common interest! It has taken from May 23 to this day to get us up "with training wheels" and now we can really start rollin'.

We have named August as "Accountability Month." September will be "Galvanizing Month" and October will be "Mobilization Month!"

This week, we announced the 30 Senate and House races we see as target races to provide us with a more constitutionally inclined Congress; we know there are more races and we hope you can help us complete this set of focused races by Labor Day (if your tax status permits it). A 501(c)(4) can easily engage in traditional 501(c)(3) activities, but also move closer to the lines of positioning on issues and elections.

With the valuable partnership of the Leadership Institute, we launched online training that helps citizen leaders find valuable resources for use in the home or among small communities of patriots.  This is at , and we welcome you sending others to this site or helping us find new topics we can use to video and train with you!

ASKS for You and Your Organization

1. We also invite you to join us in a Google Group for RestoreLiberty, a coalition of advocacy organizations to talk, share ideas, coordinate and protect and restore Liberty!  RestoreLiberty, a constitutional coalition of 501c4s, or willing others, can be joined by contacting Kellen Giuda at before September 1.  I have seen the value of Google group discussions and encourage the discussion to be one of collaboration around the many fall events and efforts underway!

  • Sept 9-12 in Washington is one such area in need of more promotion and marketing across the board, as I assume Glenn Beck will turn out his folks for August 28th. People are spending their own real money to attend one or both of these and each person coming to any of these events is "a Patriot Angel" in our minds!

  • The 2010 March on DC is not just a rally... it is 4 whole days of spectacular freedom-promoting events that will educate, inform, and inspire all who attend.  It is time to move past passion and into action!  Join us at the Omni Shoreham hotel in Washington DC September 9th & 10th for the Liberty XPO & Symposium. Go to: for more information.

2. We invite you to join us in exploring "list exchanges." We would love to explore those possibilities with you. Please feel free to contact me at or call me at (703) 691-2012 and we will explore growing fast together!

3.  We also invite you to be recognized as a "Friend of Liberty" by filling out this form (Password: ourliberty) and sending us your logo, so that we can post it on our site and send even more traffic your way! Let us know the best contact we should use for your organization to continue this discussion too.

Thank you for listening and reading this. We wish each of you success and we will see you in the streets, the airwaves, and hallways of power!

God bless you and yours!

Ginni Thomas and the Liberty Central Team
