On the 4th of July, Americans should make a conscious effort to remember, and to teach our children, the real reason for the holiday, which is to honor the memory of our founding fathers and mothers who overcame extreme odds and made great personal sacrifices to earn our freedom and independence.
As we enjoy this holiday, take time to reflect on the lessons learned from our nation’s early heroes. Our focus, as always, needs to be directed toward the future of this great nation — which can only continue in greatness by promoting personal responsibility, limited government, free markets, and individual liberty.
Happy Independence Day, Americans. Long live the Republic!

Enthusiasm was high at the first Training Seminar of the 603 Alliance held in Concord on June 27, 2015. A packed room of interested participants gathered to hear how they could join the 603 Alliance Steering Committee to ensure their goals come to fruition. (See attached photos.)
Fran Wendelboe wrote a column in the Concord Monitor last week that has gone viral, with over 14000 online reads. In the article, she outlines the common-sense argument that gun rights are important to everyone… and that opposition to gun rights is harmful to women. Senate Bill 116, allowing concealed carry without a permit, passed the Senate along party lines, with a 14-9 vote. The House passed the bill 212 to 150. Governor Hassan has threatened a veto. Contact Governor Hassan and demand that she stand for the rights of women to defend themselves without prior government permission!
Steering committee members Diane Bitter, Jim Kofalt, Fran Wendelboe, and Mike Rogers gave the latest in the series of 603 Alliance/CBL-NH presentations to attendees of the Atlas Society Summit 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Nashua, NH on Saturday, June 20, 2015.
There were plenty of great questions from the audience during the Q&A part of the 603 Alliance/CBL presentation at the Friday Morning Group in Lexington, Massachusetts on Friday, June 11, 2015. Jim Kofalt and Andrew Hemingway each gave a stirring presentation on the goals and objectives of the 603 Alliance and CBL and how the Caucus planned for October, 2015 will work. Also in attendance to answer questions from the group was Diane Bitter, and Chuck and Di Lothrop.
