Ipswich, MA is a quintessential colonial New England town. It boasts the oldest stone arch bridge, and most wooden houses built before 1700. And it made history in 1687 as citizens gathered to denounce arbitrary government actions.
On March 5, 1770, King Street in Boston (just 41 miles away from Ipswich by current roads) frustrated colonists were slaughtered by Capt. Thomas Prestons 29th Regiment of foot. That event became a rallying cry for colonists to boldy stand against the imperious and capricious British rule.
NOW THEREFORE, I, Charles D. Baker, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, pursuant to the powers provided by Chapter 639 of the Acts of 1950 and Section 2A of Chapter 17 of the General Laws, do hereby issue this proclamation that there now exists in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts a STATE OF EMERGENCY.
We've done what they asked. We followed the rules.
We understand that COVID-19 is a real disease which the Chinese maliciously and intentionally allowed to spread globally even as they shut down domestic travel. It's killed and sickened many of our fellow citizens.
At the same time it's clear that first from "an abundance of caution", later from a need to do something, and now increasingly from either useful idiots or petulant bureaucratic tyrants, we are being subject to the most dramatic and rapid expansion of government overreach in the history of the United States.
Citizens who have paid taxes and contributed to communities are having their livelihoods, life's work and savings eviscerated due NOT to the virus, but the capricious, ineffective and arbitrary edicts which are stifling the economy and suffocating individual liberty.
And they continue to simply ratchet them down further.
Enough is enough. We are Americans. We saved the world from tyranny in the 1910s and 1940s.
And now we must save ourselves from it
And yet through this entire crisis, not one government official has relinquished any of their secure pay or their sinecures.
Meanwhile hardworking Americans like Carlos Roman (shown above), proprietor of Bread and Barley have been denied the right to provide for their families. From Covina, CA to Ipswich, MA and across the fruited plains between. You can't watch this video and not feel simultaneous empathy for him and contempt for the bureaucrats who are forcing more people into miles long lines for foodbanks.
And so it's time.
If Ipswich, MA was the Birthplace of American Independence, it will now become the place of America's rebirth. And there's no more appropriate day than March 5th, the anniversary of the Boston Massacre.
While many in our communities may for various reasons simply comply and bend their knee, it has never taken many to bring tyrants and bullies to heel.
Add your voice and character to the chorus. And stand together as individuals united in a common cause - with a clarion call to current and potential tyrants across the Commonwealth of MA, New England and the United States!
Enough is Enough!
Ready to stand together as individuals united in our commitment to liberty and the principles which we were taught bind us together?

We were warned in Federalist 51 that because men are not angels, and the government is comprised of men, we must apply safeguards.
