Why should you attend?

“Constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead makes a compelling and urgent case in Battlefield America for Americans to unite under one common goal: the defense of our freedoms.” ―Nadine Strossen, former president of the ACLU and constitutional law professor at New York Law School

“Once again, John W. Whitehead shows himself to be a thorough reporter, an insightful scholar and a tireless defender of the Constitution. Battlefield America is the most penetrating, eye-opening proof to date of the imperialist government’s desecration of our constitutional personal liberties.” ―Nat Hentoff, syndicated columnist and historian

“Whitehead scores points when addressing needed reforms in the court system, education, and individual rights to privacy. Following his literary forebears such as Orwell and Huxley, he warns: ‘Either we gather together now and attempt to restore freedom or all will be lost.'” ―Publishers Weekly
