Nick Troiano, running for Congress for the U.S.10th District of Pennsylvania as an Independent, will be the guest speaker at the September 11th meeting of the Patriot Connectors.
The meetings are held in the Wallenpaupack School Library from 7-9 p.m.
The Patriots meet every month to invite citizens of the community to learn more about how the U.S. government was formed and how it is now currently being run.
Guests are able to voice their concerns, suggestions, and comments in a Forum, free and open to the public. Petitions, free literature and a lending library are available at each meeting.
Several members of the group have become elected as Wayne and Pike Republican County Committeemen and another a writer for the “Independent Gazette.”
Bruce Perine’s latest column in the August 2014 Wilkes-Barre/Scranton issue was “A New Declaration.”
In excerpts from his article he states, “In a mere two years, it will have been 240 years since the Great Experiment that is the United States commenced.
"WE have progressed from 13 backwater, remotely located colonies, to the greatest nation the world has ever seen…So what happened?.. WE obviously lost our way.
"WE stopped believing that character was a necessary ingredient in the people WE elected. WE went from citizen-legislators to professional politicians…WE demand a return to our Constitutional form of government, Executive and Legislative Branches that recognize the limitations placed upon them by the Bill of Rights, and a Judiciary that does not legislate from the Bench.”
