Today is Memorial Day, and what better day is there to eulogize our old republic? The Founders are no doubt spinning in their graves as the country they fought to establish rampages over half the earth, decimating lives – and our liberties – in the process.

The Warfare State has ushered in the Surveillance State – and today Americans overwhelmingly see their own government as the main danger to their freedom, rather than some foreign "threat."

But all is not lost. We can win back the freedoms we have lost. We can reverse the shameful history of the past 15 years – but we can't do it without your help.

Memorial Day is a good day to make your contribution to the cause of peace and freedom. And the timing couldn't be better: we've raised $33,000 in matching funds, which means the impact of your donation is doubled.

Don't give up our old republic for dead. We can revive it, but we need the resources to fight for it.

Please make your tax-deductible contribution today.
