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.

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
