Website redirected

Our team website for MWLF was inappropriately redirected to a group without the permission of the team.  There is nothing we can do about that except to recommend that on future projects the team must own the domain or have a written agreement up front on who can make decisions relative to same.  Sadly we learn who we can trust and who not so much as we go through these efforts together.

If anyone wants to reconstruct the website – we can post it here as this was our test site before the other one was released for/by the ‘team’.

Sorry about all the broken links!

If you want to do something about this matter, ask the redirecting website to restore the original website without redirecting to their personal project . . .

Sorry all – we live and learn!

For Immediate Release – August 5th, 2009

Announcing the Midwest Liberty Fest:  Activism, Education and Celebration

August 5th, 2009: The DuQuoin (IL) State Fairgrounds will be brought to life by the Spirit of Liberty on October 9, 10 and 11 as grassroots activists from across the political spectrum and across the nation gather for the Midwest Liberty Fest.

Telephone: 816.868.8806

The planning committee, sponsored by the Liberty Restoration Project, consists of activists who decided to provide the public with an event centered around ideas that unite us instead of divide us. The goal is to empower concerned citizens through the knowledge and real experiences of successful movers and shakers; everyone should be able to walk away with action items and project ideas in hand!

Some of the most well-known names in the liberty movement will be paired with up-and-coming leaders. From Adam Kokesh, the Iraq veteran and anti-war activist turned Congressional Candidate, to Michael Badnarik, the 2004 Libertarian candidate for President and Constitutional Scholar, to Sheriff Richard Mack, the man educating our nation’s law enforcement on their Constitutional role, attendees will have the opportunity to learn from some serious movers and shakers.

Interested speakers, musicians or sponsors should send a letter of request to the planning team at the following email address: Donations will provide transportation for speakers, location rental and insurance costs, and promotional materials such as radio and television ads. Keep your eyes on for an up-to-the-minute confirmed speakers list and the upcoming announcement of our commemorative ticket.
