“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”
The attack on Pearl Harbor, Apollo 11 landing on the moon, JFK's assassination. Those who lived to see those events likely never forgot them. Sept. 11, 2001 was no different. Look back and remember. . .
President George W. Bush, in a nationally-televised event, addressed the nation at 8:30 p.m.
"Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts," he says. "These acts shatter steel, but they cannot dent the steel of American resolve ... The search is underway for those who are behind these evil acts ... We will make no distinction between the terrorists who committed these acts and those who harbor them."
Those words become the basis for military action in Afghanistan, a conflict that began the next month and continues today. Today we and our Constitution are under attack by an enemy just as lethal and just as focused.
The 912's of America are taking up this fight and facing this enemy; and we intend to WIN!
We welcome everyone who wants to join us in the fight to restore our great nation to its founding principles.

In case you've missed it, the fight to protect and defend our freedoms against the onslaught of higher taxes and larger government is happening everywhere. Just look to recent battle over public workers unions in Wisconsin, Indiana, and Ohio and you can't ignore that the struggle is very real and is happening shore to shore.
So, how can you stay engaged and aware of the nationwide fight that could very well define our time and impact on the country? FreedomWorks.org has recently introduced the Freedom Connector, designed specifically to connect like minded, freedom loving patriots across the United States. Feel free to join Freedom Connector Broomfield 912 group and see what is happening in the grassroots liberty movement, beyond our own front yards.
You can join with 2 easy steps:

This Website is a place for you and other like-minded Americans looking for direction in taking back the control of our country. It is also a place to find information that will assist you in navigating the rough waters we face in the days, weeks and months ahead. Although centered in Broomfield, Colorado, we have members from around the state and some from across America.
Once you join the Broomfield 912 you will have full access to the website and enjoy the opportunity to meet and work with others concerned about getting America back to basics, back to the Constitution.
We hold monthly meetings for the membership and have established committees and common interest groups to help members concentrate in areas where they need the most help or can contribute the most experience. Our Event Calendar may contain everything from Pot Lucks to Protests and often includes Fun and Fund raising events. It takes money to mount the fight to protect and defend the Constitution; hence our need for dues, fund raising events and requests for donations. If you would like to help, select the Donations button from the menu.
This movement is unaffiliated with any political party. The 9-12 Project is designed to bring us all back to the place we were on September 12, 2001. The day after America was attacked we were not obsessed with Red States, Blue States or political parties. We were united as Americans, standing together to protect the greatest nation ever created. That same feeling – that commitment to country is what we are hoping to foster with this idea. We want to get everyone thinking like it is September 12th, 2001 again.
Ask yourself these questions:
* Do you watch the direction that America is being taken in and feel powerless to stop it?
* Do you believe that your voice isn’t loud enough to be heard above the noise anymore?
* Do you read the headlines every day and have an empty feeling in the pit of your stomach… as if you’re completely alone?
If you’ve answered YES, then you’ve fallen for the Wizard of Oz lie. While the voices you hear in the distance may sound intimidating, as if they surround us from all sides—the reality is very different. Once you pull back the curtain, you realize that there are only a few people pressing the buttons, and their voices are weak. The truth is that they don’t surround us at all.
We surround them!
