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.

The official website is www.rideforhonesty.com

Aloha and Welcome

I’ve done it before, I’m doing it again, starting May 24th. Crossing America on a bicycle, sowing seeds of liberty, and putting faces on a r3VOLution that highlights love. Pure Grassroots! Strengthening networks, building rapport, growing the movement, one mile at a time.

…pedal, pedal 🙂

I’ve got a history of projects like this, and it is one thing I have a knack for; talking to the kind of folk you meet on the side of the road, getting them interested in some “real” change, and reporting on what I find.

This time, in addition to casual encounters, and in response to the recent DHS Documents deeming peace-loving political activists as potential threats, I will be canvassing Sheriffs and Governors; presenting them with educational materials about our movement, providing background for sensible r3VOLutionary solutions to the problems we face as a nation. The packs will include: “The Revolution – A Manifesto”, by Congressman Ron Paul. “The County Sheriff – America’s last Hope”, by Sheriff Richard Mack. And a DVD of the speech, “The Powers of the Purse and Sword” by Dr. Edwin Vieira.

In doing so, I hope to build rapport and spark honest discussion, locally, about our great country’s apparent slide into some bizarre new form of fascism. To symbolize this, I am riding from The Statue of Liberty to Alcatraz; Freedom to Fascism. It is a grim goal to envision, a heavy topic to carry. But, must. be. done. As Dr. Ron Paul said, July 10, 2003 on the floor of Congress, “Let it not be said that no one cared, that no one objected once it’s realized that our liberties and wealth are in jeopardy.”

Awakening the drowsy, energizing the awake, those are things I’m good at. Navigating the road, and targeting a message, are things I have a wealth of experience in. Putting them together in this trip is a natural. Following the advice of Calvin Coolidge, “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘press on’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”, I’m pressing on.

Join me, in any way, and “Be a part of it”
