We're coming to the end of one of the most crucial summers of our lifetime. Over the past few months, we’ve committed, we’ve activated, we’ve lived it, and we’ve created. We’re now in the final push to the election, and I believe that we are going to finally get some leadership in Washington that will be more focused on empowering individuals to find solutions rather than regulating the country into oblivion.
And I, along with the team at TheBlaze, are going to be with you every step of the way!
Last week, the Real News team was down in Tampa providing exclusive coverage for TheBlaze TV (formerly GBTV) viewers - and that was just the beginning. From now until the election, TheBlaze is going to bring you the truth on what is going on in the presidential race, without any of the political bias that you see in the mainstream media.
As part of our growing network, we’re adding a new show hosted by Andrew Wilkow that will premiere on September 10th onTheBlaze TV. Available for PLUS subscribers, Wilkow! will bring the popular Sirius XM radio host into primetime, and he’ll be the latest voice to bring you the stories and the opinions that you just can’t find in the mainstream media.
The same week that we premiere Wilkow!, I’m going to be joining my partners at Freedomworks for our FreePac Bootcamp in Cincinnati, Ohio on Sepetember 15th. At the event, I’ll unveil a historic project that will launch the future of the movement for freedom. I’ll be speaking, along with FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe, Deneen Borelli, and CL Bryant - and giving you the first look at a powerful new tool that will empower you to take action beyond the voting booth.
You and I both know that the problems facing our country aren't going to change over night. In November, we're simply removing the problem of progressive big government. But starting in January, it's going to be up to us - ALL of us - to work together to help our fellow man now that we've told the politicians to stay away.
One of the reasons I created TheBlaze, the network that YOU are building, was to provide a platform for you to be empowered. It’s not just a news site or video streaming network - it’s a place where you can connect with likeminded people to recharge and get the tools you need to create change in the world. With each day, we take more and more steps to build the company with that one goal in mind. And one of the ways we are trying to empower individuals across the country is through The Marketplace, an e-commerce site dedicated to supporting entrepreneurs throughout America by bringing great small businesses to a larger national platform.
Over the next few weeks on TheBlaze, you’ll see many of their stories as they respond to perhaps the biggest slam against the American Dream - “You didn’t build that”.
This is where President Obama differs from most of us across the country who do believe in the American Dream. When he says, “You didn’t build that,” he's saying you needed help from the government to achieve your success. When I think of “You didn’t build that”, I think of all of you who are out there spending your hard earned money on businesses and charities that YOU believe in. You don’t need the government to decide who succeeds and fails - you make those decisions with your dollars.
On this Labor Day, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for helping me build my company over the past decade. Because of your trust and your confidence and your support - I’ve been able to take some of my wildest dreams and turn them into a reality. I truly hope that you find value in the things that my team and I are sending out into the world.
While I could have (and did) do it without big government - I couldn’t have built all of this without YOU.
