Our United States are under attack from the political descendants of Roosevelt’s ‘New Deal’ (socialism) and of Hamilton-Lincoln ‘federalism’ (tyrannical central government). These attacks on our Constitutional form of government and the natural rights of We the People have culminated today in a military-industrial complex in league with a burgeoning police state (fascism).
The signs of a decayed republic are all around us, from the unconstitutional war on Iraq to the unlawful fiat currency now losing its purchasing power through the “inflation tax,” and the unconstitutional application of the income tax. Liberty is being lost at an unprecedented rate.
The Mass Media is complicit in the attack and has always served the business interests of the owners of media outlets. In the early part of the last century, wealthy interests bought up major newspapers, recognizing that they could wield power by influencing mass opinions through these outlets.
Over time, national news and commentary has become increasingly influenced and outright owned by large corporations. Now, just five corporations — Disney, Time Warner, Murdoch News Corporation, Viacom, and Bertellsson — control the majority of available media today, and often are joint owners of media outlets.
Liberty cannot be re-won without access to the media. Nothing will work to push back the forces of tyrannical fascism except political pressure, and political pressure can only come from a significant number of people hearing, understanding, and applying the principles of limited government and Liberty.
The American media monopoly now controls and limits the information our fellow citizens hear and see, to the detriment of all of us. Because information is not readily available to the average person — indeed is often deliberately withheld from them by the media — Americans continue to make destructive choices in health care, education, politics, and the economy.
As Thomas Jefferson said nearly 200 years ago: “If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be.” Unless our fellow citizens are taught the benefits that the exercise of freedom and their natural rights can bring, they will continue to ignorantly expect government (and the big businesses who have gained control of government) to take care of them, never realizing that the unconstitutional actions of our present government are the source of their misery.
And if true Patriots don’t undertake to educate their fellow citizens, they will be destroyed along with the rest! Patriots cannot expect to prosper and have freedom in their personal lives if they don’t work to educate and restore others to the principles of free markets, non-intervention in foreign affairs, sound money, and small government.
Radio is the cost-effective choice for the Liberty message. While the interlocking control of major media is a factor in preventing independent groups from gaining access to television, TV is also inaccessible due to its prohibitive cost. By comparison, radio is much more affordable — making it the most practical for our purposes — and affordability is directly related to expansion. Radio has the added advantage of being available to its audience while they are at work, or traveling, or in many other situations where television is impractical.
Talk radio is interactive and issue oriented. The format of Liberty Works Radio Network will be talk radio, where issues relevant to freedom-oriented people can be discussed. Individual programs will have plenty of time to develop the issues enough for audiences to really understand them. Plus, talk radio is interactive — it allows listeners to call in and become participants in the discussion, something television can rarely do. This not only gives the audience a “stake” in the programs, it can introduce opinions and solutions from the public that would otherwise not be aired.
Benefits of FM non-commercial broadcasting. LWRN is set up as a nonprofit enterprise, so it will not be dependent on commercial sales. Instead, much like public radio, it will be supported through memberships in the Liberty Works Radio Network Fellowship, at a cost of just 99 Federal Reserve Notes (commonly but erroneously called “dollars”) per year. As few as 5,000 members would fund the purchase of a non-commercial radio station (which will be the base for expansion) and a satellite uplink to feed the network, so Liberty Works Radio Network could be on the air if only a small percentage of those already involved in the Patriot community joined the LWRN Fellowship.
Not only does this plan significantly lower start-up costs, it also greatly reduces the cost of expanding the network. This is because, instead of needing expensive commercial stations to broadcast into large markets, non-commercial stations can use less expensive “translators” to extend their broadcast range. Translators are devices that mount on existing radio towers, and rebroadcast the programming from the original station. These translators allow non-commercial stations to broadcast into large cities at a fraction of what stations in those markets would cost. (For example, 94.9 FM in Montville, CT broadcasts over Hartford and New Britain; 96.5 FM in Gloucester, MA covers Boston. Asking prices last year for these translators were just $25,000 and $31,000, respectively — a small fraction of the cost of radio stations in the same areas.) Just as important, the operating overhead of translators is also considerably less than an actual radio station, which means faster expansion of the network at much less cost! And that translates into reaching our end goal of re-establishing Constitutional government that much quicker.
Partnership with a commercial station. The satellite uplink that will be used to feed Liberty Works Radio Network will consist of two monaural channels — one commercial and one non-commercial. The non-commercial channel will be the one supplying LWRN stations and translators with programming. At the same time, the commercial channel will be supplying the same programming to commercial stations, which will not be part of Liberty Works Radio Network. However, the revenues from commercials, as well as the revenues from providing programming to the affiliate commercial stations, will be used to fund the normal operating costs of the entire network. This can be achieved through partnering with an existing commercial station, owned and operated by Sab Cupelli, who has been involved in radio and broadcasting most of his life.
With the operating expenses of the network covered by the commercial station and its affiliates, the funds generated by the membership of the Liberty Works Radio Network Fellowship can be used to expand the non-commercial network. As membership grows, so will the network’s reach, as broadcasting awakens more and more of our countrymen and expose them to the truth they need to hear if we are to save our Republic. Increased exposure of the public to patriot news and informative analysis — 24 hours a day, 7 days a week — will lead to increased membership, which will keep the cycle going, until the message of individual liberty and limited government is spread from sea to shining sea.
The time for LWRN is now. Many Americans are suffering under the Federal Reserve’s inflationary system and the unconstitutional “wars” waged for the benefit of powerful businesses. Tens of thousands of Americans contributed to the Ron Paul presidential campaign (Paul is the only member of Congress who has consistently obeyed and defended the Constitution), which shows that a significant minority have started to take notice of their dwindling liberty. The state of the economy will soon force other Americans to take note, and the time has never been more ripe to introduce them to the founding principles of our Republic.
In addition, a variety of hosts and programs have already been lined up for the network, including Constitutional attorney Larry Becraft, attorney and TruthAttack.org founder Tommy Cryer, and Executive Director of Original Intent, Dave Champion, to name just a few. More hosts can be found at the Liberty Works Radio Network Website.
All It Takes Is Pennies A Day! As you can see, this is a workable plan. And all it takes from each of us is 27¢ a day. You read that right — TWENTY-SEVEN CENTS! Our brave forebears pledged their lives and their fortunes to establish our Constitutional Republic, and many willingly paid that price. But to help save that Republic, all that’s needed from you right now is pennies a day, payable in one convenient installment of $99 a year. How else can you give such a great gift of knowledge to your neighbors, friends, relatives, and fellow citizens for so little?
