Patriot Michael Maresco Planning his Next Cross Country Bike Ride! “Ride for Honesty”

By now, most of us Ron Paul supporters, C4L members, Daily Paulites, and Liberty Forum lovers, know personally, or know of, “the guy who rode his bike across country promoting the message of freedom and Ron Paul.”

I first learned of Michael Maresco shortly before attending the rEVOLution March in Washington. I have had the pleasure of meeting him several times since, spending time with him most recently in St. Louis.

Michael, the consummate adventurer and traveler, is ready to ride again. This patriot needs and deserves nothing less than our support and hospitality as he makes his way across the country on his “Ride for Honesty”, bringing us all a little closer to freedom, and all a little closer together. Following is an excerpt from Michael’s recent blog post announcing this historic ride:

LibertyRide

Aloha 🙂

As many of you know, I pedaled a Schwinn across the country for Ron Paul during the election season. It was very successful in raising awareness for the issues of liberty and for tying together neighboring organizations. I am now planning the second ride and will be traveling from The Statue of Liberty to Alcatraz. The undercurrent message is “Freedom to Fascism”, the public name will be “RideforHonesty”

This ride is about honesty; doing what we can to help our fellow Americans take an honest look at the problems fast overwhelming us, and spark honest discussions regarding solutions.

Frankly, I fear for our country, and the world itself, if “We, The People” do not stand up to halt the descent into tyranny of our present path. Marriages of “special interests” and government have put America on a slippery slope from Freedom into Fascism… Hence, the undercurrent of my ride.
PLEASE CHIP IN TO THIS NOBLE CAUSE AND HELP THIS PATRIOT HAVE SAFE PASSAGE COAST-TO-COAST

PEDALING A TOUGH MESSAGE

Riding his Bicycle from The Statue of Liberty to Alcatraz, Activist Michael Maresco Pedals Symbolically from Freedom to Fascism

PHOTO OP

Liberty State Park, NJ: On Sunday May 24, 2009 at 11am in Liberty State Park, NJ, Bicyclist Michael Maresco will begin a 63 day – 4000 mile journey across the continental United States of America. While traversing the country on a modified WalMart Schwinn, Mr. Maresco plans to meet with Governors and County Sheriffs to discuss their vital roles in preserving citizens’ liberty and a constitutionally correct Rule of Law.

“The sheriff absolutely has the power and responsibility to defend his citizens against all enemies, including those from our own Federal Government,” says Michael Maresco, better known as the Ron Paul Rider and Walk for Freedom organizer. “My hope is that fellow Americans will take notice of this bike ride, with the topics being discussed, and take an honest look at the problems fast overwhelming this country.”

44 year old Hawaii resident, Maresco continues, “The marriage of special interests and government has put America on a slippery slope. I’m making this ride to emphasize, that relief from the current ‘crisis’ will ultimately come from individual citizens interacting positively with their neighbors, not from a corporatized central government, which appears to be the way its going now.  Hence the theme of my ride from freedom to fascism. ”

The book, The County Sheriff – America’s Last Hope by Sheriff Richard Mack and DVDs from the Committees Of Safety and Oathkeepers will be distributed to each County Sheriff during Mr. Maresco’s scheduled meetings. Pocket constitutions and Ron Paul’s The Revolution a Manifesto have also been generously donated by the Campaign for Liberty for distribution during the 63 day – 4000 mile “Ride for Honesty”.

“Designed as an outreach campaign, The Ride for Honesty is not a protest or demonstration,” says Nick Ramaglia, Local Logistics Coordinator for the Ride. “In each town Michael passes through he will directly address, in an understated yet memorable way, the condition of our country and the solution to its troubles: namely, the principles of Liberty and The Constitution.”

Mileposts cross country

Mileposts cross country

Here are the tentative mileposts for the Ride for Honesty as Michael prepares to take liberty for a ride across country. Please ponder where you can meet Michael and take back the message to your state so that we can touch all 50 states on a local level with freedom.

This is the overview of the trip and as I prepared to post the information for you to see, it crossed my mind that we need to see if we can take the ride another layer and make it touch all 50 states. See if you can get the vision and help us to make it happen. In the meantime, don’t forget to support Michael in his venture and make it successful to the max!
