Entering Harrisburg, PA

May 27th, 2009

Harrisburg, PA.  Liberty Rider Michael Maresco started three days ago leaving the Statue of Liberty in New York City only to find himself peddling through the Harrisburg area at 5pm yesterday.  Michael stopped several times talking to passer by’s, media and even a sheriff or two, but the most amazing part is he saddle’s back up and continues his journey to San Francisco and Alcatraz.  When asked why Alcatraz Michael only said “It’s where I believe our country is headed”.  When you think about the freedom and vision leaving the statue of liberty to end up at one of the first federal prison built in our once great land, a true statement of our current national police state.

On behalf of everyone in Pennsylvania that you have met so far and the one’s you will be meeting on your next half journey through our state, we welcome you Michael Today and Tomorrow and can’t wait for your return.  To a safe and dry ride, Freedom will lead your way!

Ride For Honesty…Begins Sunday, May 24th

May 24th, 2009

Thanks to ROBPATOZZ for this posted just before my trip began.

See you soon!/mm (editor’s note – the article says in 10 hours,

but the journey has begun with Michael on his way to NJ now)


In approximately 10 hours, Liberty Rider, Michael Maresco will begin the start of another historic journey. Riding for honesty, he will traverse these great United States, spreading the message of freedom.

While the preparation began months ago, Michael will mount his trusty stead, aka Wal-Mart Schwinn bicycle, outfitted with many modern conveniences, on May 24th, 2009. After taking the Ferry to see Lady Liberty, he will return to terra-firma and start his sixty three day trek. I will have the pleasure (and pain) of joining him for a portion of the South Eastern Pennsylvania leg of this journey on Monday, the 25th, Memorial Day.

Our day will culminate with a good old fashion Memorial Day cookout, sponsored by the local C4L. In addition to Michael being our guest of honor, we will be met by Chester County Sheriff, Carolyn Bunny Welsh. Bunny is the only female sheriff in the commonwealth of Pennsylvania. She will join us for the festivities, and speak to our Liberty Rider regarding the Sheriffs’ role as the highest elected constitutional authority in the county.

We hope you can join us!!

New Meetup Group formed for Ride for Honesty!

May 17th, 2009

Welcome to the Ride for Honesty!

This cross country bicycle trek is inspired by the boundless enthusiasm of the American People for freedom, justice, tolerance, and charity.

Mike Maresco, the Ron Paul Rider, rode his bicycle across the country in 2007, inspired by the growing need for Freedom in America. Along the way, he met many liberty activists, and had the chance to ride with Ron Paul for 10 miles around his home in Lake Jackson, TX. In 2008, he co-sponsored the Great American Walk for Freedom, a 280 mile journey of freedom and brotherhood from Green Bay, Wisconsin to Minneapolis, Minnesota. He is back in 2009 for another ambitious cross country trek. His theme this time is America: Freedom to Fascism, inspired by the popular film by the prophetic film maker Aaron Russo. Michael’s choice of start and finish for his journey is related to his theme – from New York City’s Statue of Liberty (Freedom) to San Francisco’s Alcatraz Island (Fascism).

The Ride for Honesty begins May 24 in NYC and ends July 22 in California.

Ride For Honesty Inspires Arkansas FREEDOM Book Drive

May 16th, 2009

I am pleased as punch with this report from the good folk down in Arkansas. There is very little more satisfying, to a person like myself, than seeing people pick up a ball I threw on the field and running with it. Looks like Arkansas is going for a TD. Here is the report:

As wise men say, “the fight for FREEDOM starts in your own backyard.” And fight for FREEDOM we shall. There are seventy-five counties in Arkansas. That means that there are seventy-five county Sheriff’s serving the great citizens of our great state. Each county Sheriff in Arkansas should have a copy of “The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope”, a well researched book written by former Graham County, Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack. Sheriff Mack, a long time crusader for freedom and individual rights states, “Right now, it is vital that we restore the Constitution as the supreme law of the land. The greatest threat we face today is not terrorists; it is our own federal government. If America is conquered or ruined it will be from within, not a foreign enemy.” Not only should our Sheriff’s have a copy of “The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope”, but they should also have a copy of Congressman Ron Paul’s book, “The Revolution: A Manifesto.” Additionally, our Governor Mike Beebe, and our four Congressmen and both Senators should receive a copy of each book as well. I believe it would also be a good idea to ensure that Governor Beebe, our four Congressmen, our State Treasurer, Attorney General, Lt. Governor, and both our Senators receive a copy of Thomas E. Woods, Jr., newest book, “Meltdown: A Free Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make things Worse.”

The Arkansas FREEDOM Book Drive is inspired by the valiant efforts of Campaign for Liberty Patriot Michael Maresco, the LibertyRider who pedaled his bicycle across America to promote Ron Paul during his presidential campaign. Thursday night I had the privilege and honor of having Michael as a guest on Patriot Pastor’s Radio. You can listen to the archived version online on your computer here or download it direct to your Ipod. Michael will soon be heading out for a second journey, pedaling his bicycle from sea to shining sea for the noble and just cause of sweet liberty. During his journey, he will be passing out books to county Sheriffs and county executives along the way.

Unfortunately, Michael’s journey will not permit him to pass through Arkansas (view the map here). However, we Arkansans can take up the slack and ensure our Sheriff’s each receive a copy of Sheriff Mack’s and Ron Paul’s books.

During the radio show with guest Michael Maresco, I made a personal pledge that if our four congressmen co-sponsor HR 1207, I would allow my son to cut the hair off the top of my head. I have a full head of hair, but at my age, once it’s cut, it may not grow back. Please note that I did not say “shave”. However, he will use the WAHL with no attachments, so afterwards my head will look like a five o’clock shadow on the full moon.

If you already have copies of any of the three books listed and would like to donate them to be used for the Arkansas FREEDOM Book Drive, please mail them to:

Caleb Kinley

203 Blakehill Loop

Hot Springs, AR 71913-9169

We’ll certainly need your donations to purchase the books, packaging materials, and postage. We will hand deliver all the books we can with your help, but we may have to snail mail some books if we have no one to deliver them personally in certain areas of the state. Each package we hand deliver or snail mail will include a nice letter from myself, the regional coordinators, and will contain Campaign for Liberty literature including information in regards to H.R. 1207. There will be no advertisements in the packages as they are strictly C4L and issue related. I know a couple of you are running for office, however, as a 501c4 Lobbying organization, we cannot include any potential political candidate’s campaign information in our deliveries, not even Congressman Paul’s if he were running for office.

The cost of the books alone is $1,953.30. This does not include taxes (if any), shipping and handling fee’s, package materials, C4L literature, postage, and perhaps a price break for bulk rates. I do know that Sheriff Mack’s book in bulk is sold at $8.00 per book, $9.00 single. I will try to get a better bulk rate price, but there is no guarantee that Mr. Mack could or would take a smaller bulk rate. I believe this would be up to his publisher. If you would like to help out financially (and we DO need your financial help), please make out checks or money orders to Campaign for Liberty (donations are NOT tax deductible) and write “project Arkansas” in the ‘for’ or memo section of the check or money order and mail to:

Campaign for Liberty

6186 Old Franconia Rd. Ste B

Alexandria, VA 22310

Number of Book’s we will need:

“The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope- 82 x $8.00= $656.00

“The Revolution, A Manifesto- 82 x $13.65= $1, 119.30

“Meltdown- A minimum of 10 x $17.80= $178.00

Total- $1,953.30 (does not include tax, shipping and handling fee’s, package materials, C4L literature, postage, etc.

Article from R3publicans in Oklahoma

May 9th, 2009

Oklahoma has a very active group and I am happy to be visiting them on this trip

Thanks Sandie

R3publicans – for original post

I just added a comment to this post which seems like it should be shared here and on the forums as well:


Michael Maresco’s website has been updated, please be sure to visit and help him with this trip!

I would love to see arms branch off of his route and people meeting him all along the way. Visit a sheriff’s office with him and see how he handles the visit and the press along the way and then replicate that back all the way to your state and your local sheriff’s office.

Ride with him, meet with him, order materials for him, share with him about matters in your state and he will help all along the way. As I have pondered and prayed about this journey, I have been impressed that we should each ask what we can do to help and do that. If everyone takes a little liberty to their community, we can spark the discussion across the land and what looks like a journey from freedom to fascism (NY to alcatraz) can actually be a journey setting liberty free across the land!

Think about it and see what you can do to reverse the trend and share the vision! If you don’t know how to help, pray and ask God what you might do to restore freedom in our land. Where there is no vision, the people perish. Here is one man with a vision and I believe that his vision will help you to see just how easy it is to reverse the trend right where you are.

Ride for liberty and tell a friend and share a story across the land!

Blessings all/sc
