an independent Tea Party group in DuPage County, IL
There has been an interesting phenomenon occurring in the western suburbs. There have been numerous sightings of a certain booklet. People have been noticing a display of this booklet at their local library, favorite restaurant, barber shop, beauty salon, store, and even the golf course. These displays have been emptied of their contents so quickly, it is obvious there has been a pent up demand.
So what is this booklet? It is a pocket Constitution of the United States. The display holders and the Constitutions are provided by West Suburban Patriots, a local civic organization.
When we asked our Patriot members to participate in our “Adopt a Constitution Holder” project, they jumped at the chance. West Suburban Patriots now has about sixty Constitution holders out in the area – thanks to our members and the businesses and institutions that agreed to participate.
West Suburban Patriots has always handed out Constitutions at meetings and events, but this project greatly increased the number of Constitutions we distribute. During our first three years we distributed 4,000 Constitutions. Since February when this project began that number has skyrocketed to 9,000.
If you would like to participate or learn more, please join us at our meetings. We meet the second Saturday of every month at the Wheaton Bowl from 9am to 11am.
West Suburban Patriots is a non-profit, civic organization. Our mission is to educate, encourage and empower our fellow citizens to secure public policies consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets. We gratefully accept donations, which can be made on our web at http://westsuburbanpatriots.com/.
