Retired Senior Chief Geoff Ross and the Emerald Coast Tea Party Patriots are hosting an event to raise awareness of the U.S. Constitution, and to raise money to support fisherman affected by the Gulf Coast Oil Spill, and for the Navy Seal Wounded Warrior program. The U.S. Constitution Freedom Rally will be held at the Emerald Coast Conference Center, Ft. Walton Beach, FL, on Saturday, August 21, 2010.
Attendees will hear brief presentations from local political leaders and candidates, a speech from candidate for US Senate, Marco Rubio, and a closing presentation from featured speaker, Brigitte Gabriel, author of “They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.”
A Focus on the U.S. Constitution
The rally focuses on bringing attention to the U.S. Constitution. Many feel this is especially important as conflict escalates between state’s rights and the federal government’s attempts to influence state activities. Taking center stage is the conflict between Arizona and the Obama administration over Arizona’s recently passed SB1070 signed into law by Governor Jan Brewer.

The Constitution has roughly 4,500 words, including signatures, and is considered to be the supreme law of the United States. The Constitution serves as the framework for our country, defining the relationship of the federal government to the states and citizens. Today, many feel that relationship is being unfairly tilted, giving Washington D.C. too much control and power over the states. Many Americans have a renewed interest in the document, and are raising awareness in order to protect the freedom of states and citizens to determine their own destinies.
