Let’s reject division and unite for the American People As we celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. tomorrow, let’s reflect on the words of this remarkable man and his vision for America. In Dr. King’s August 28, 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech on the Lincoln Memorial, he closes with these powerful words: Let freedom ring.

We invite you to pause and consider examples of the Pilgrims and Wampanoags. Today our nation comprises many different peoples united in a common purpose and enjoying the rights boldly stated in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution. Auspiciously, our Thanksgiving dinner tables provide abundance that will feed our bodies. Similarly, consider how this nation feeds and supports our deepest values: freedom of worship and conscience; freedom to gather and speak; freedom to assembly; freedom to travel; freedom to pursue happiness in your way, and so much more. Lastly, we express deep appreciation for this Thanksgiving, for Gods’ blessings, and for Squanto’s example of mutual support. Alike in our appreciation, we are more similar than different.
To Our Veterans, Past and Present, and to all the men and women of the United States Armed Services: We thank you for your service to our country. For protecting the liberty enjoyed by all Americans.

SVGOP is committed to promoting the values you fight for: freedom, liberty, and opportunity for all. To those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, those who risk their lives every day

Vaccine mandates are getting out of control, spreading to more and more parts of California. When people push back and refuse to let the government control their personal medical decisions, they are discriminated against. And when good businesses, like In-N-Out, refuse to force their restaurant workers to become an enforcement arm for the government, they are either fined or shut down completely. https://www.theepochtimes.com/mkt_breakingnews/california-in-n-out-shut-down-permanently-for-refusing-to-check-customers-vaccination-status_4071086.html Friends – This is what tyranny looks like! The SVGOP fully supports In-N-Out in their refusal to become the “vaccination police”
