How to Create an Informed Electorate

Written by  Kristin Kenowski Monday, 29 July 2019 15:12

It’s no mystery that the key to preserving our Constitutional Republic lies within our ability to create an informed electorate. As voters all we need to do is combat fake news and misinformation, inform ourselves constantly, and influence those around us: piece of cake … not! While it may seem simple, actually keeping the electorate informed and accountable is much more than a one-person job. That is exactly why we have The John Birch Society – so you don’t have to tackle it alone.

Our dedicated team CAN keep America what it was intended to be. Virtually all of our nation’s problems would be fixed if we had constitutionally-focused elected officials, but it is up to “We the People” to continue this momentum. You are only one person, but when you’re a part of a JBS chapter you can exponentially increase your ability to influence the direction of your community. While creating an informed electorate seems like an impossible task, The John Birch Society CEO Art Thompson shares in the Foreword of the Blue Book why it must be done:  
The point is that there is no solution offered that will work without an informed electorate. If the electorate is informed, the problems solve themselves. Therefore, the solution is educating the people. This is the major strategy of The John Birch Society and why we call ourselves an educational army: first educate, and then activate. 
Even back in the early 1960s, Robert Welch referred to the Society as an “educational army,” and that is exactly what we are! Over the years, we have witnessed many committed supporters and members who have done an exceptional job of educating their communities. Through hosting speaking engagements and events, distributing DVDs and pamphlets, reading recommended books, activating chapters across the U.S., and ultimately influencing their elected officials, they’ve truly encompassed the words of Mr. Welch: “Education is our total strategy, and truth is our only weapon.”
Now, it’s your turn. If you are not yet a member, we encourage you to join us today! Our experienced coordinators will help you take the next step. Getting you connected with like-minded individuals you will feel as though you are a part of something much bigger than yourself – and you will be. By becoming a “Bircher” we can all work in concert community-by-community across the country getting the right information to the right people at the right time in order to stop threats to our freedom and bring about less government, more responsibility – and with God’s help – a better world!  
Whether you’re just getting started, you’re an experienced Bircher, or just eager to learn more, we encourage your help and support. Many hands make light work, so together we can make the largest impact. Join with us to create an informed electorate because our Constitutional Republic can only be preserved by a moral, informed, and engaged citizenry.
