Roger Cotton has decided to undertake a march of "epic proportions." Starting in San Diego CA on April 15, 2013, Cotton will be leading the Liberty March and a series of events throughout parts of California which will culminate in a press conference and rally in Sacramento on June 14th. This march is a call-to-action to defend the Constitution and to stand up for the civil rights of all Americans.
"I'm enraged and engaged," says Cotton "Politicians are wreaking havoc on our country, destroying our economy with their reckless spending and insane policies, and now, not only do they expect us to pay more in taxes to supposedly fix what they have done, but they are trying to take away our civil rights as well. No! This will not continue!" Cotton, a fledgling activist, believes that the entire Bill of Rights is being violated, and that the Constitution itself is being subverted, if not ignored altogether. "We've let ourselves go, as citizens. As a result, we are in the position we are in now, where the public serves the public servant. Our freedom is in real danger of being lost."
During his march, Cotton will be carrying the American Flag and wearing a satchel holding a petition for redress of grievances he has drafted and will be collecting signed petitions as he goes. This petition is posted on his web site at: www.liberty-march.com, and is available on a PDF download for supporters to print out, gather signatures and add their names to the cause if they are unable to make it to a March rally event. Cotton invites anyone who supports his cause to walk with him anywhere along his March routes for as far as they can. These signed petitions will be presented to the Office of the Secretary of State and Governor Brown’s office on Monday June 17th, 2013.
As a diabetic, Cotton suffers from neuropathy in his hands and feet. "Imagine your feet feeling numb from being in ice water for too long. But, at the same time, you also feel the burning of damaged nerves. That is how it feels”. Despite his physical condition, Roger is preparing for this endeavor by walking seven to ten miles per day and exercising with a trainer in a gym. "I'm in terrible shape. I let myself go. But that, too, is going to change."
Ultimately, Cotton wants California to no longer infringe upon gun ownership by law-abiding citizens. He also demands that policies be put into place at both the State and Federal levels to ensure transparency and accountability. "Politicians are attacking the Second Amendment like never before. I've never owned a gun, but I believe in a citizen's right to keep and bear arms. Not only to protect themselves from others, but from a government that seeks to infringe upon and eliminate his or her rights. These rights are unalienable. Government does not have the power to take them away." Otherwise, he says, "the civil rights of Californians and all Americans will be violated and infringed upon once again."
