#CashFriday Action Plan
Use cash whenever you can, but on Fridays use cash ONLY.
Download the #cashfriday memes and spread on all your social media. It’s especially important not to type out #cashfriday because of algorithms and censorship.
Keep it going for as long as it takes.
It’s as simple as 1, 2, and 3. But if you really want to take it further, we are including links on how to find a local bank and other reports on how to take big bank and corporate tyranny out of your life. We are making these reports available to the public to add strength to the momentum.
So, let’s make Cash Friday the preparation for something bigger – and that something bigger is sovereignty and freedom for all humanity.
CBDCs: Central Bank Digital Currency
If that idea doesn’t scare you, nothing will. We must TELL CONGRESS to PASS H.R. 6415 and S. 3954. These bills will STOP a Federal Reserve digital currency.
Contact your U.S. Reps & Senators and urge them to oppose the creation of any digital currency by SUPPORTING H.R. 6415 and S. 3954. More detail here.
PRIMARY THIS TUESDAY 5/17: Voter Guide from Andria at IVoteLiberty.com
We are approaching KY's Primary Election, which is extremely important in that it determines which candidate for each office will qualify for the General Election in November. If you weren't already planning on doing so -- please plan to VOTE IN-PERSON ON TUESDAY, MAY 17 (or on the early voting days of May 12, 13, or 14).
KY has many liberty-loving citizens who stepped up this year to run against well-funded incumbents and they need our support. The only way to drain the swamp is to stop voting for the career politicians who care more about maintaining the power and perks of political office than about serving the People, protecting our God-given rights, and lowering (or ridding) all the damn taxes we pay. Gone are the days where we can trust an "R" next to someone's name...we must pay attention and we must be informed when we vote!
Go to ivoteliberty.com to get information about how and where to vote in the Primary Election and to view lists of candidates to vote for. As the site encourages, always do your own research -- that said, I have reviewed the names listed on the site and I believe they are the candidates deserving of our vote because they are everyday citizens and they are running for the right reasons: love of state and country, belief in small government, dedication to serving the community, and commitment to preservation of liberty.
Again, check out ivoteliberty.com for more information on how and where to vote and to view candidate lists. Please make sure you show up to vote in-person on TUESDAY, MAY 17 (or on early voting days of May 12, 13, 14).
Please share this info with as many like-minded friends and family as possible. We need informed voters to show up on Tuesday, May 17. The regular citizens who are running for office aren't interested in politics; rather, they're running to fight against government overreach, to secure our rights, to ask questions and push back, and to lower taxes ... they are the ones who can help us take back Kentucky and America.
The future is up to us -- please vote wisely! 🇺🇸 🗳 🙂 💪
P.S. Reminder when voting: if you don't know anything about a candidate or what an ordinance or amendment really means -- DO NOT VOTE ON IT, LEAVE IT BLANK. Bureaucrats are known for using confusing and/or warm and fuzzy wording to trick voters -- don't be fooled!

County Over Country: Keeping an Eye on our Representatives
Please note: the word "representatives" must always be said with air quotes.
Surveillance makes people squirm, especially politicians. During the off-season, we will play that game, too. We are setting up our “County Over Country” watch-dog initiative, DETAILS HERE.
From the smallest, most rural KY towns to the largest counties, these guys and gals need to be monitored. Can you start by gathering the meeting info for your county?

Meet this MAFA Guy
My name is Michael Gosper. I’m 57 years old. I graduated Bryan Station in 1983. Joined the Navy and started boot camp in Aug 1983. Traveled around the world in the 6 years I was in the service. I got out and, after some stints in small time jobs, started working as an electrician apprentice for 2 companies, Randy Walker Electric, and Dixon Electric.
In 2001, I caught my big break: I joined the Fire Department in Lexington, Ky. I went to paramedic class in 2004 and maintained my license until I retired in 2019. I had my knees replaced in 2018, which led to my being retired with a disability pension. I then joined Toyota and was there when covid broke out. My bullshit meter pegged on this one. I was let go from Toyota because I wouldn’t wear a mask driving a van to pick up cars for service.
After that I became a trophy husband to my wife, Kelly, of 1 year and 4 months, (although we were seeing each other for much longer, living together for most of it).
I have been a gym rat for the better part of 20 years, but became much more serious about it after I retired. Although I don’t compete, I do take my fitness very seriously (it is true I’m not a fan of veggies, meat and potatoes for me please) spending a minimum of 2.5 hours 6 days a week in the gym. I go to Proof Fitness, where I now also work as a front desk greeter.
I have 2 children (Aaron 28, and Amanda 23) and stepdad to (Kendra 17). Kelly is the best thing to ever happen to me. Having come out of a failed marriage, she made me feel alive again. I used to tell her that her hair sent shock waves through me. Anyway, that’s probably enough for now. You guys are my family also.
No one is coming except YOU.
