Has America Achieved the Vision of Freedom as Set Forth by its Founders?
According to John McManus “It wasn’t what government did that made America great; it was what government was prevented from doing that made the difference.”

 

APPLETON, WIS. – June 16, 2011—While preparing to usher in another Independence Day, more Americans are asking if the country has achieved the vision of freedom as set forth by our founders.  Has it achieved the vision of providing for its people or is it trying to achieve a hands-off approach and leave prosperity to the individual?

The John Birch Society President to Participate in “We the People Convention”
John McManus to Take Part in Panel Discussion on Federal Reserve

APPLETON, WIS. – May 12, 2011 – We the People Convention, Inc., today announced that John McManus, president of The John Birch Society, will take part in a panel discussion of the viability of the Federal Reserve at the Ohio statewide “We the People Convention” being held on July 1-2, 2011, at the Columbus Convention Center.

McManus said of the Federal Reserve, “It has presided over the loss of more than 95 percent of the value of U.S. currency. A huge percentage of the wealth of the people has been confiscated through the inflationary practices carried out by the Fed.” McManus will present this and other findings detailed in his book “Financial Terrorism,” during the panel discussion. The panel moderator will be Linda Bowyer, Associate Professor of Finance at University of Toledo. Other panel participants include Mike Sullivan, founder and president of Wealth Coach Financial Services, Inc. of Dublin, Ohio and Bob Wagner, a Columbus based portfolio manager who has taught finance at Ohio Wesleyan and Microeconomics at Ohio State University.

“We are excited to have John join the panel discussion on the Federal Reserve at the We the People Convention,” said Tom Zawistowski, convention president. “John brings a depth of knowledge about American government that spans more than 44 years and has educated millions of Americans about the appropriate role of government during his tenure with The John Birch Society.”

Convention attendees can also go to McManus’ other presentations during the morning breakout sessions. He will be speaking on the Council on Foreign Relations and its negative influence on American liberty, and also on neoconservatives that have pushed the conservative movement away from its limited government principles.

McManus joined The John Birch Society in August 1966. He has written and produced numerous audiovisual programs, including the DVD Overview of America, which is a tribute to America’s Constitutional roots. Additionally, McManus has authored several books including Financial Terrorism (1993), Changing Commands: The Betrayal of America’s Military (1995), William F. Buckley, Jr.: Pied Piper for the Establishment (2002), and The Insiders (2004).

The “We the People Convention” will consist of two days of educational breakout sessions, interspersed with major national figures including conservative strategist Dick Morris who will be speaking at luncheons.  Its purpose is to educate and train citizens about the political process and to encourage involvement in that process at the grassroots level.

We the People Convention, Inc., is a state registered 501 (c) 4 non-profit educational organization based in Columbus, charged with assembling the convention, as well as engaging political activists throughout Ohio. For more information on We the People Convention, visit www.wethepeopleconvention.org or contact Tom Zawistowski at 1-800-846-4630, ext. 104 or at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Choose Freedom — Stop ObamaCare Doctor Tour Begins
The John Birch Society sends three doctors on a speaking tour to kickoff its campaign to repeal or nullify the new healthcare law, allowing patients, doctors to choose a course of care

APPLETON, WIS.—September 23, 2010—The John Birch Society’s “Choose Freedom — Stop ObamaCare!” speaking tour officially begins September 24 in Idaho with a presentation by Dr. Mark E. Baxter.  The tour features three doctors who are passionate about affordable quality healthcare and constitutional, limited government that allows patients and their doctors to choose a course of care.

The tour begins in Idaho and runs through 13 states until the first part of November.

The "Choose Freedom — Stop ObamaCare!" tour is a nationwide speaking tour/media tour of three physicians and JBS President John McManus, sponsored by The John Birch Society.  It is an important part of the Society’s comprehensive campaign that includes billboards, radio and newspaper ads, videos and DVDs, flyers, bumper stickers, ObamaCare repeal and nullification petitions, Internet social network sites, and YouTube, as well as print and online articles.  The campaign aims to educate and enlist more Americans in the efforts to push Congress to repeal the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, while at the same time urging state legislatures to stop the federal takeover of medicine and healthcare through the constitutional process of nullification.

The three doctors are Baxter, MD; Frederick Pierce, MD; and J. Michael Ritze, DO, MFSA.  Baxter is a former urgent care and emergency room physician and a Senior Airman Medical Examiner for the Federal Aviation Administration.  He has long had an interest in the effect on medicine that would accompany government control of medical care.

Ritze has a family practice in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma and has delivered over 2,000 babies.  He has taught forensic science specifically to law enforcement agencies across Oklahoma for years.  Since 2008, he has served in the Oklahoma House of Representatives.

Pierce spent the better part of his medical career working in the occupational and environmental health fields.  He served 27 years with General Motors and then at clinics in Michigan and Indiana before retiring.

McManus is the President of The John Birch Society, publisher of The New American magazine, publisher of the JBS Bulletin and author of several books.  Before joining the Society’s staff in the 1960s, he served on active duty as a lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps.

JBS CEO Arthur R. Thompson will be a fifth speaker and fill in where needed.  He has read the entire "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act" and its reconciliation companion. Through JBS, he is helping lead the effort to overturn the new law and help return the choice of healthcare back to individuals.

Founded in 1958 and headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin, The John Birch Society is dedicated to restoring and preserving freedom under the U.S. Constitution. Members come from all walks of life and are active throughout the 50 states on local, regional and national issues.
