Everyone has the right to a trial to prove innocence.                                                                                                           — Nancy Pelosi (D, CA aka the Wicked Witch of the West)

Show me the man and I’ll show you the crime                                                                                                                     — Lavrentiy Beria, head of the Soviet NKVD

PLATO WROTE THAT DEMOCRACIES DEVOLVE INTO TYRANNY. Our democracy has been devolving for some time, and the trend is accelerating. The Left’s longest running attacks have been on free markets and on God; they are trying to stomp out profit and freedom of religion, replacing them with socialism and freedom from religion. Freedom of speech has given way to the cancel culture. Our public schools teach our children to hate our country and themselves. The Left celebrates school shootings with more calls for disarming us, and in New York they only charge you with murder if you are caught fighting back. They used Covid to close “non-essential” business, and make everyone wear useless masks as the visible sign of submission.

With the arrest of former President Trump they have reached a milestone in turning us into a banana republic. While the swamp has not yet outlawed the “opposition” party, they seek to prevent us from fielding a candidate with any real chance of restoring America’s greatness. Governor DeSantis beware, you are surely next on their enemies list.

ON THE OTHER HAND, our republic is always under attack, and has survived many crises. We have had more than one President who viewed our Constitution as an obstacle to be overcome and discarded. Since the 1930s, with only the exceptions of Presidents Reagan and Trump, our Federal Government has been trying to stamp out cheap energy and profit-making enterprises. We have been promised earthly riches, all paid for by taxes on someone else, if only we would obey all of the benevolent government’s commands. We have come through these past crises by holding true to our country’s founding principles, and being willing to fight for our freedom. In most cases, we won those fights with words and votes; but in the 1860s we had to resort to force of arms. We can survive this challenge, too!

THE CHAIRMAN, suspecting opposition to his benevolent rule and intending to smoke out his enemies, has called for a debate:

RESOLVED: Let the Show Trials Begin!

The Debate will be held on Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at Burger Moe’s, 242 West 7th Street, St. Paul, MN 55102.

The Chancellor and Chairman encourage people to arrive before 7 o’clock p.m. and to thank our host venue by spending money while partaking of food and drink. The debate will begin at half past seven.

Gentlemen who wish to speak must wear a tie, and ladies are asked to uphold a similar sartorial standard. For gentlemen arriving sans tie yet wishing to discourse on the resolution, the Purveyor of Ties will have on hand several from his remarkable collection. Questions regarding caucus procedures or about the John Adams Society may be directed to the Chairman at (651) 398-9316 or the Secretary at (612) 703-6021.
