A republic is different from other forms of government, as it requires an active and informed citizenry to properly function. Grassroots political activism is a civic duty.
Many citizens get discouraged by the power and influence of people like George Soros or Bill Gates and eventually give up and do nothing.

But we at the John Birch Society say, “not so fast!” You can make a difference!
