What Are You Doing To Stand Guard Over Liberty?

Instapundit’s column in Sunday’s Washington Examiner offers three things you can do now for liberty rather than just bidding time until the 2012 elections.
Attack the funding. Many of the most anti-liberty activities of state and local governments are driven by federal funding—either direct funding, or grants.

Stop supporting the enemies of freedom and start supporting your friends. Cancel your subscriptions to cable TV channels, magazines or newspapers that support big government over individual liberty.

Join Together. It may seem contradictory to assert your independence by banding together. But our Founding Fathers didn't set America free by acting alone.

I urge you to read the whole thing, but I’d also like to recommend three ideas of my own.

A new Harvard University study finds that July 4th parades energize only Republicans, turn kids into Republicans, and help to boost the GOP turnout of adults on Election Day.  It’s an insipid claim, but if true, go to that hometown parade.  We need more Republicans to stand guard over liberty.  It’s wonderful knowing that Progs fear patriotism.

Monitor the activities of your local Organizing For America office.  If they are operating a phone bank from a church in your area, you should challenge them.
And finally, please support our troops. America continues to uphold its ideals and is a symbol of freedom and democracy for the entire world thanks to our brave military men and women.
