There is always a First Citizen…then many to follow.
On November 5th, in an historical gesture dating back to Guy Fawkes Day , Rick Hotchkiss declared himself as the First Citizen by proclaiming a series of Benchmarks to hold the political leaders accountable to upholding and/or reforming four essential issues critical to re-stabilizing this country to an economically sound, politically equitable and secure nation whose citizens are able to protect themselves under the Constitution upon which it was founded for this and every generation to come.
Rick Hotchkiss, an ameriCAN who believes every attempt should be made to reclaim a country where:
- The Constitution is universally understood and valued.
- The Federal Government’s primary (and perhaps only) responsibility is national defense.
- A balanced budget requirement stops the further devaluation of currency and citizenship.
“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.”
– Thomas Jefferson
The First Citizen logo (falling red Republican and blue Democrat dominoes) is symbolic of the parties falling by the wayside to the will of the people.
First Citizen is not a political party. It is a grassroots movement by those who adopt and believe in being an ameriCAN!
Join Rick and all those like minded too silent majority that believe there was only a choice between the lesser of the two evils in the broken party system.
