Get Involved w/ Organize for Liberty

The #WNCTP​ has transformed! One of the changes includes throwing all of our political resources, all of our political involvement, all of our political energies, etc. into Dr. Greg Brannon‘s Organize for Liberty (OFL) through the creation of an OFL chapter here in #WilsonNC.

Organize for Liberty is a 501(c)4 non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging and protecting constitutionally-limited government, individual sovereignty, and the inalienable rights of the individual, through education, activism, and grassroots organization. We believe coercion and compulsion are the enemies of liberty.” (Taken from HERE — to learn more, visit organizeforliberty.org)

OFL is, by far, the best way to stand for Truth, to be involved in educating the masses on the universal principles of Liberty, and to support those principle-centered leaders who are putting and will put their lives on the line for Freedom by running for public office on a platform dedicated to Constitutionally-limited government.

OFL is one of the few clear, uncompromising voices for Liberty still left in #NC and #America. And while we still have freedom to stand and shout the truth, we would do well to stand and shout all the more through OFL!

If you want to help with the #WilsonNC OFL Chapter, email us.

Writing Letters to the Editor

Writing a letter to the editor of your local newspaper alerts the general public to what’s happening in Wilson, in NC and in America. Although publication policies vary, the following advice applies to most newspapers:

  1. Keep your letter short and to-the-point. Many newspapers will not consider letters longer than 150-300 words (Note: The Wilson Times has a 400 word limit.). Type your letter if you can; many editors won’t read letters that are not typed.
  2. Keep to the point  (Limit your letter to one issue.). If you are responding to a news story or editorial, you don’t need to give many background details. Give your reasons for writing in the first sentence if possible; you may want to start by saying, “In response to your (DATE) editorial regarding …” (Note: As stated on the WilsonTimes.com website, be sure your letter is “related to recent news stories or editorials published in The Wilson Times. Your letters must be original, must be signed, and must include the writer’s address and telephone number for the purpose of verification.”)
  3. State your views quickly and in an organized way. Use a simple, conversational tone.
  4. Be sure to use facts and supply data that will support your points to ensure that your letter is informative and useful to readers.
  5. Be polite, even when you disagree. Foul or abusive language of any kind or personal unpleasantness is a letter’s ticket straight to the wastebasket. Remember who and what you represent and that your audience consists of 1000s of readers. Also, humor or sarcasm can add a bit of spice, but just remember that too much spice can spoil any dish or letter.
  6. Provide the Editor with your full name, address, and daytime telephone number. Anonymous letters generally are not published, though upon request, some editors may withhold the name of the letter writer.
  7. Don’t get discouraged if your letter is not printed the first time. Editors receive countless letters, and they simply don’t have room to print them all.
  8. Close with a brief statement, question, or suggestion.
  9. If at first you don’t succeed at having your letter published, try, try, and try again. Your persistence will pay off.
  10. If you are submitting your letter to the Editor at the Wilson Times, email it to editor@wilsontimes.com.

Disclaimers

The Wilson NC Tea Party (WNCTP) does not endorse candidates on the federal, state, or local levels. We are simply pointing our fellow citizens to the principles and values of our founding so that they will be able to vote, in the primary and general elections, for those candidates who are most aligned with those principles and values. With that said all candidate-related posts are for education purposes only.

Also, the views and opinions shared as comments on the WNCTP Blog, by its various members, do not necessarily represent the views and opinions of the WNCTP leadership and volunteer base. Since the WNCTP is "Of The People, For The People, By The People" and believes in the First Amendment, we cannot and will not deny any member their right to "free speech" regarding their political and/or policy positions, but our tolerance of their views does not necessarily reflect consent.
