“Pounding Pavement” For Reform: Antoun Details “Activism Across Brooklyn”
He’s hitting the streets, petitioning and distributing literature to everyone he meets.
Republican activist Roy Antoun recently posted a new piece on his always engaging blog about how he’s out there pounding pavement to promote reform-minded principles and candidates.
As I usually do, I thought I would share his piece with you all so you can glance through his window into local Republican politics:
Brooklyn has been receiving a heavy dose of Liberty and Reform these past few weeks. Brooklyn YR President and Republican activist Jonathan Judge and I have battled vigorously to promote small, limited government. About a week ago, we hit Bensonhurst with petitioning for State Assembly Candidate Lucretia Regina-Potter, meeting neighbors and disgruntled citizens who simply wanted their tax dollars back in their own wallets.
While the Brooklyn GOP establishment continues to undermine true tenets of reform and liberty, the activists have stormed the field. After one week of activist door-to-door visits, I distributed over 120 copies of Young American Revolution and spoke to dozens of neighbors about the need for Republican reform back to its Constitutional roots. We’re fighting for small government and that began here at home.
“Politicians” have stolen the fruits of our labor and distributed it amongst themselves and their friends on Wall Street. Distributing tax according to what an economic czar or Congressman deems “important” is nothing more than glorified corporatism. Why hasn’t Albany given our tax dollars back if they truly wanted to stimulate economic growth? After all, it is spending and saving in the private sector that moves an economy.
We need to be careful as to who is running our government, who we allow to run in politics, who runs the party. If the establishment is ok with endorsing liberal Mayors like Michael Bloomberg then we, the people, must keep them in check. That is how a Republic works.
This piece comes after the release this campaign video for Lucretia Regina-Potter:
We wish Roy and his crew the very best!
