Update- We are close to having a date! Read carefully!

Many are wondering what is going on with the permit and a date for the March. This is a quick update on our progress.

In order to have a peaceful rally and march in Washington D.C. we are required to secure proper permits from the National Park Services. This process is started by filling out an application and submitting it to the National Parks Service. Once they receive an application, permits are issued on a first come first serve basis. When filling out the application several desired dates are selected to hold your event. We requested every Saturday from Memorial weekend to the first of August, which includes June 14th and 21st as first choices.

Revolution March submitted the application almost 4 weeks ago, we have now been assigned a permit number. This is good news!

Even though they have not given us a date this is a positive step in that direction. Please remember they have over 900 applications to sort through at the National Parks Service. We call them several times a week hoping that the "squeaky wheel gets the grease". We hope to have information on a date and location in the near future.

The End of America- Naomi Wolf

Naomi Wolf is a best selling author becoming famous for her book "The Beauty Myth" (1991). In 2007 she wrote “The End of America”: Letter of warning to a young patriot. Here she outlines 10 steps necessary for a state to take control of individual lives.

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
2. Create secret prisons where torture takes place.
3. Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
4. Set up an internal surveillance system.
5. Harass citizens' groups.
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release.
7. Target key individuals.
8. Control the press.
9. Treat all political dissents to be traitors.
10. Suspend the rule of law.

This book takes a look at the rise of fascism and how this pattern was followed in Nazi Germany and Italy. She urges Americans to take action and restore the constitution. If you look at history you can see a clear pattern for turning a free society into a dictatorship, she compares these steps to those taken by the Bush Administration after 9/11.

Tune in Thursday, March 6th at 5 PM Eastern to our show the North Virginia Patriots as we get into more details these 10 steps. You can hear this interview at Ron Paul Radio
