‘Defend the Guard’ Phone Bank Was Huge Success

I could use this newsletter to give you an update about the Republican primary debate last night.

Candidates talked and talked and talked.

But I’d rather give you action.

Yesterday my Director of Field Operations Diego Rivera hosted a phone bank for our Defend the Guard efforts in New Hampshire.

Here’s the memo brief he just sent me.

It’s incredible.

More than 60 people donated their time to calling legislators and pressuring them to pass Defend the Guard—they don’t believe our National Guard should be fighting any wars that haven’t been declared by Congress.

In a matter of hours, we flipped two committee members. That’s real world change.

And isn’t that more exciting than, to quote Diego, LARPing on Twitter?

“OTP” stands for “ought to pass.” We stand a solid chance of passing committee in the Granite State and receiving a floor vote.

From there, we’re looking at becoming law.

The committee hearing is on October 11, and we’re already preparing a door knocking campaign and literature drop (along with more phone banks).

Diego is working with the military efficiency I’d expect from a U.S. Army Ranger. He’s recruiting a nation-wide network of patriots and liberty activists who are ready to do the heavy lifting to bring our troops home.

I’ll only take credit for having the good judgement to hire the best. Diego is an invaluable member of the team.

I hope to commit the same amount of attention and resources to all the other states in 2024. But I can only do that with your help.

You could sign up for our supporters’ group, the Ten Seven Club, and start receiving membership benefits for as little as $10 a month.

Or you could get your hands dirty and work alongside Diego making calls, kicking butts, and taking names. Join our next phone bank and be one of the few people who love our country enough to save it.

I’m incredibly proud, not just of my team, but every person who gifted us their time and energy yesterday. In New Hampshire and out, these are the kind of people who won the American Revolution.

They’re doers, not talkers.

And together, we will pass Defend the Guard and end our endless wars.
