Some well intentioned reader nominated the GUARDIAN for “blogger of the year” and guess what? We won! Had it not been for the efforts of the cities to abolish the constitutional right of citizens to vote on debt, urban renewal’s attempt to go around voters, and all the actions of Team Dave, we never would have won. Thank you all.
The Sammies are Sam Adams Alliance’s annual awards recognizing activists nationally for their work for freedom and free markets. Awards are given in six categories and come with cash prizes of $3000-$5000 and are presented at a “red carpet event” in Chicago. Visit www.thesammies.com for more information.
In the 1760s, Adams was part of a movement opposed to the British Parliament’s efforts to tax the British American colonies without their consent. His 1768 circular letter calling for colonial cooperation prompted the occupation of Boston by British soldiers. To help coordinate resistance to what he saw as the British government’s attempts to violate the British Constitution at the expense of the colonies, Adams and his colleagues devised a committee of correspondence system, which linked like-minded Patriots throughout the Thirteen Colonies in 1772…before the days of internet and blogs.
