Venango County Tea Party Patriots Holding Freedom Rally on Saturday

| July 12, 2019

VENANGO CO., Pa. – Venango County Tea Party Patriots will hold a 10th Anniversary Celebration of the Tea Party Movement by hosting a Freedom Rally on Saturday, July 13, Bandstand Park on Liberty Street in Franklin.

(Pictured: Keynote speaker Dr. Mark Hendrickson)

The event will be held from 2:00 p.m to 4:00 p.m.

The rain venue for the event will be at Franklin Alliance Church Family Life Center located at 1200 Otter St. in Franklin.

Along with other Tea Party groups across the nation, the theme of the rally is Stop Socialism—Choose Freedom, to encourage fellow Americans to resist the failed, destructive, and dangerous ideology of socialism. History shows that socialism has failed everywhere it has been implemented because it rejects a fundamental ingredient of what makes capitalism successful—private property. History also shows that capitalism is the economic system that has brought more people out of poverty than any other system. The goal is to remind Americans that there is no political freedom without economic freedom, and whereas capitalism promotes economic freedom and thereby promotes political freedom, socialism crushes economic freedom and thereby crushes political freedom.

Keynote speaker will be Dr. Mark Hendrickson, a retired Grove City College Professor and Author of “America’s March Toward Socialism.”

Other speakers will include Senator Scott Hutchinson; Kim Stolfer, President of Firearm Owners of America, Lenny McAllister, WPA Director of Commonwealth Foundation; Diane Gramley, President of AFA of PA and Jane Richey, Local Coordinator of Venango County Tea Party Patriots. Congressman Mike Kelly’s confirmation is pending.
