The Common Sense Property Rights Coalition will meet Monday December 9 at 6 pm at the River Bend Restaurant in Mammoth Springs according to board member Kevin Jotz. The regular location, The Spring Dipper is closed for remodeling in December.
The speakers at this meeting will be Duane Lester, editor of the Missouri Torch, an online newspaper dedicated to providing full coverage of news in Missouri; and Robyn Gilbert, a well known health living expert on foods that heal and improving health through diet. The group will also discuss the US Park Service new rules restricting public use of the Ozark Scenic Riverways and efforts underway to encourage the federal government to return the Scenic Riverway land to state control. Information on public hearings concerning the Scenic Riverways and car pool information for those wishing to attend will also be discussed.
“This is an organization concerned with protection of private property rights. The group believes that without protections of private property rights nothing else is secure. The right to own and reasonably use private property is a cornerstone of the U.S. Constitution, differentiating our country from others around the world. As John Adams, one of our nation’s Founding Fathers and our second president, said: ‘The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.’” “
Mike Evans, talk show host of Americas Voice Now will update the group on his plans to return to terrestrial radio and his current television project.
“The PRC has fought for the rights of landowners against government intrusions for years, including fighting against the National Animal Identification Act, which would have bankrupted many farmers. The Commonsense PRC believes that landowners are the real conservationists. Since the land makes their living they take care of it in a better way than government agencies such as the EPA and NGOs. We welcome all area residents interested in private property rights, food freedom and protection of constitutional rights to attend, or to call us for more information at 417-264-2435 or 417-270-1724.” Jotz said.
