Email/Phone Strategy for Ending Stay At Home Orders

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

Download the email campaign as a .pdf

The key to a successful petition is persistence.  You don't need a million signatures if a hundred people will make a thousand emails and phone calls.  If it is worth contacting your representative once, it is worth contacting your representative once a day until you see satisfactory results.  Its just not enough to add your name to an online petition that will be sent off into digital oblivion.

The First Amendment reads: 

the Right of the People...to Petition the government for a redress of grievances.  The key to this right is not "petition."  The key to this right is "redress."  This is not simply an expression of our right to complain to or about our government.  It is about our right to complain and to see those complaints satisfied.

This Right of petition is deeply rooted in history and can be traced back to clause 61 of the Magna Carta.  In this promise by the King to the people, clause 61 declares that when the king or "our chief justice, our officials, or any of our servants offend in any respect against any man, or transgress any of the articles of the peace or of this security" it becomes the Right of the People to "distrain upon and assail us in every way possible, with the support of the whole community of the land, by seizing our castles, lands, possessions, or anything else saving only our own person and those of the queen and our children, until they have secured such redress as they have determined upon."

A one time or general email or phone call is merely a request and has very little influence or authority.  A persistent and pointed request is powerful and demands remedy.  That is how you make changes in a Representative form of government.

Here is an email/phone campaign I designed to guide you in a successfully persistent  and pointed redress of your grievances over the current stay at home orders. If you unite the people in your community to send these emails repeatedly over a period of a few weeks, you will see changes.  There are three different emails and two different phone message.  Use them all. 

Once you get the hang of it you can design your own campaign.  Perhaps you have a Sheriff that needs to understand his/her duty to defend the rights of the people over simply "enforcing the law."  Maybe you have a school board that is more occupied with getting money from the government and teaching historical error than truly educating children.  I cannot stress enough how important regular engagement is to have a healthy and liberty minded government.  We must make contact often and regularly.  WE MUST BE THE LOBBYISTS FOR LIBERTY.

"Malo periculosam, libertatem quam quietam servitutem." Thomas Jefferson, 1787

Translation: I prefer the tumult of liberty to the quiet of servitude.

Liberty is not easy, but it is worth the sacrifice and time to know your children and grandchildren will have the opportunity to be free.

Dear (Governor/Commissioner),

America was founded upon the principle that all people are endowed with certain Inherent and Inalienable Rights.  The people of (Insert State/County)  have acted responsibly; we have acted in love and regard for our people, and our declining COVID infection rate reflects that fact.  Now it is time to let the people of (Insert State/County) do what they do best; get back to work. 

The current (Insert State/County) Order related to the COVID-19 Emergency establishes restrictions upon the people in direct contradiction of our fundamental Rights and the Supreme Law of this State.  The limit upon our assembly, the exercise of our freedom of religion, our right to assemble for a redress of our grievances are all being infringed.  Our Right to the ownership, control, and enjoyment of our property is not only being violated without due process and just compensation, but in many cases these Rights may be forever lost.

Every business is essential when a family’s provisions are dependent upon that income.  Current statistics show us that divorce, child abuse, alcohol abuse and depression are on the rise because of our inability to legally work and provide for our needs.  The people of (Insert State/County) are responsible and honorable people.  We do not want handouts, and it’s time to start lifting the restrictions upon our businesses so the people of (Insert State/County) can get back to healthy and productive lives. 

 It is time to honor our most sacred principles of government; it is the duty of the (Insert State/County) to secure the Rights of the people, not infringe upon them.  We are fully capable of operating our businesses while voluntarily engaging in the practices that will help keep our neighbors healthy. 

It is time to put (Insert State/County) BACK TO WORK.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

I am calling to say it is time to begin opening (Insert State/County) businesses, now. The limits upon our assembly, the exercise of our freedom of religion, our right to assemble for a redress of our grievances are all being infringed.  Our Right to the ownership, control, and enjoyment of our property is not only being violated without due process and just compensation, but in many cases these Rights may be forever lost.

We have acted responsibly; we have acted in love and regard for our people and our declining COVID infection rate reflects that fact.  We don’t want government handouts.  We want to work and provide for ourselves, as free people do.  Now it is time to let the people of (Insert State/County) do what they do best; get back to work.  Thank you!

Dear (Governor/Commissioner),

(Insert State/County) was built upon hard work and self-sufficiency.  We are a resourceful and responsible people.  It is time to let the people of (Insert State/County) do what we do best; get back to work.

Every business is essential when a family’s provisions are dependent upon that income.  Current statistics show us that divorce, child abuse, alcohol abuse and depression are on the rise as a result of our inability to legally work and provide for our needs.  It is time to begin lifting the restrictions upon our businesses so we can get back to healthy and productive lives.

The people of (Insert State/County) know how to use common sense to live and work safely.  Lift the Safer at Home penalties while maintaining the recommendations of the CDC so that we can provide for our families.  We are good people.  We are fully capable of operating our businesses while voluntarily engaging in the practices that will help keep our neighbors healthy.

It is time to put (Insert State/County) BACK TO WORK. It is time to begin lifting the restrictions established under our (Insert State/County) Safer At Home Order.  Thank you.
