“I love my children and my grandchildren and I want to pass down to them a free America. Our Constitutional Rights are being abused and we are headed for a Socialist government. I could not sit back and do nothing. Many people do not realize the danger we are in. We must expose the corruption and restore freedom. I still believe the best is yet to come!” -Michael Dennis Smith, Founder We the County
Responsibilities of a Community Leader
Thank you for showing interest in We the County Leadership! Community Leaders oversee their local community which is geographically defined by their school district.
1. The most important thing is to develop a community of hope. One that encourages each other with emotional support. We stand side by side and no one stands alone. Patriots care about their community.
2. Get people to sign up, even if that is all they do. The more people who sign up, the louder our voice becomes. Once they sign up, they will be able to receive critical information and updates.
3. Keep in touch with what is happening with your community. You are our liaison to your school board, city council, small businesses, chamber of commerce, churches, townships, families in need, and so on.
4. Reach out to your small businesses letting them know how much we appreciate and support them. Ask if we could put a business card holder or a brochure holder on their counter. We will do everything to promote their business, especially the ones who sign up for We the County. Contact me for brochures.
5. Gather a few people together for a meeting explaining our vision. If you like, contact your WTC County Leader and ask them to come. Also, keep a heads up for like-minded groups that are meeting and ask if we can share about WTC.
6. Once a County has an established County Leader, we will start holding monthly meetings to draw people together, cast the vision, develop an action plan, share ideas, get to know our neighbors and LAUGH! Yes, laughter is mandatory.
7. If this sounds like something you would like to do, please call me at 810-837-1512. The best time to call is M-F 1pm to 6pm. If that doesn’t work for you, just text me and we will set up a time. There is absolutely no cost to you or anyone else. This is not about money, it is about our freedom, but it takes money to run an organization, so we do appreciate donations.
- We will bring the authority to govern back to the local community. The Original Intent of the Constitution is for a limited Federal Government and for “We the People” to govern our County and State. We will work with Constitutional attorney Katherine Henry from Restore Freedom, other professionals, politicians, judges, organizations and concerned citizens.
- Parents will regain control of their children’s education by working with educators. Currently, our children are being indoctrinated with progressive ideologies that instill hostility towards patriotism, traditional values, and a free exchange of ideas.
- We will form strong communities that will support the right to stand up and express your opinion without verbally attacking or vilifying anyone because we don’t agree with the common narrative. We will protect the open forum for the exchange of ideas and individual thought.
- Expose the corruption in the government, big pharma, social media and major news networks. We will hold our elected officials accountable for their oath to the Constitution.
- Educate people about the importance of supporting our local businesses. They are the backbone of our local communities. They are our supply chain of goods and services. Once they are gone, many will never return.
- Never again allow a “health emergency” to supersede our Constitutional Rights of freedom to assemble, freedom of religion and the Right to support our families.
- Protect the Right for all medical treatment to be between a doctor and her patient. The Governor and DHHS should never have the right to force vaccinations or limit the use of drugs like Hydroxy Chloroquine. This is true for all medical personal and frontline workers.
- Create a community of support, lending a hand when needed. We will be a hub of information for events and what is happening in the local community.
- Give a platform to those who want to be heard and gather together with like-minded people to make a difference, standing up for our Constitutional Rights.
Sign up to be a member and we will keep you posted about what is happening in your area and how you can help make a difference. We will also be posting a calendar of events on our website. Consider becoming a Community Leader. Pass out our business cards and brochures. Talk to your local business owners, let them know you appreciate them and that We The County is here to support them. The main way we communicate is through email, so if you are not receiving our emails, check you Spam folder.
Yes, we only share your information with our Leaders so they may contact you.
