Reopen NH Rally for Freedom on Independence Day - Granite Grok

Reopen NH Rally for Freedom on Independence Day

4 July 2020 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
NH State House
107 N. Main St. Concord NH
Andrew J. Manuse


Saturday at noon at the State House, we will Rally for Freedom on Independence Day, which celebrates the decisive day in 1776 when Americans declared their independence from the British Crown, stating that governments exist ONLY to protect the life, liberty and pursuit of happiness of the People, under the rule of Almighty God, and when they fail to do this, they ought to be abolished.

Saturday’s rally is for ALL Americans who do not have a local celebration to attend this Fourth of July due to Coronavirus cancellations, or those who do but want to join us anyway. The primary purpose of the event is to remember the freedom that our Founding Fathers fought for after declaring independence from the British and also to call for a restoration of the freedom we have recently lost due to the novel Coronavirus and the civil unrest that has predictably followed the lengthy and unnecessary shutdown. We will be calling for an end to fear and all other divisions that separate us from achieving the best version of ourselves. We will be highlighting what we can accomplish when we help build each other up and treat each other with dignity and respect. We will celebrate liberty, which gives us all the best chance to build a thriving and prosperous nation.

Activities will include:

  • an invocation and prayer for our state and our nation,
  • a reading of the Declaration of Independence from the State House steps,
  • commentary about where we are and where we need to go as a state and a nation,
  • lawn games,
  • face painting,
  • balloon animals,
  • other games/activities for children,
  • bring a picnic,
  • decorate bikes, strollers and tricycles for a side walk parade!
  • decorate your car for a counter-clockwise parade around the State House.

To reemphasize: Children are invited to decorate their bicycles or tricycles and take part in a children’s parade on the sidewalk around the State House. Adults are welcome to decorate their cars and drive counter-clockwise around the State House.

All attendees should bring signs with their uplifting and patriotic slogans, and we ask that you keep all messages positively focused on liberty for ALL people. Use your imagination, but most importantly: remain peaceful and enjoy the celebration!

While we intend Saturday’s rally to be positive, it’s important to also note that our government has certainly veered off course from its purpose. Admittedly, we had some original sins to work through and are still working on them, but in just a short time, our government seems to have flipped liberty on its head and become the Leviathan our Constitution was designed to prevent. With the continued absurdity of the arbitrary and capricious top-down rules stemming from unbalanced fear of the novel Coronavirus, our way of life is being threatened. The cancelation of Independence Day celebrations is just one more threat, which feeds into the desire of some of the elite power brokers attempting to divide the American people and destroy our history, our traditions, and our way of life. We must recognize the injustice of the current situation in America and come together as one people from all backgrounds, all heritages, all faiths, and all walks of life, who stand together for the principles that our Founders articulated in 1776. On Saturday, we must stand together with one voice and declare that we want to work toward a country that protects the life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for all people, and that every individual deserves the opportunity to pursue their own idea of happiness with equal protection under the law. Please join us.
