The mere fact that an event happened in a distant country and a remote age does not in itself prove that it has no bearing on the present.
- Ludwig von Mises

The Arizona Breakfast Club first came together, in 1969, founded by Harry Everingham. Harry had been a conservative activist since World War II, publishing the American Patriot and leading We The People, a national organization.

Harry came to Arizona from Chicago, and had been discussing the issues of the 1968 election campaign with friends over coffee. The discussions were good, and a decision was made to create a club for political discourse. The Arizona Breakfast Club opened its first public meeting in January of 1970 to fight for freedom in a patriotic forum where our faith in God, our constitutional republic, and productive economy would be championed. The club was to rally conservatives and to educate people about the state of the nation and their American Heritage of liberty.

Senator Barry Goldwater, Arizona's Statesman, and often one of our guests at the podium, best outlined our desires for good government when he said: "I have little interest for streamlining government or making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the constitution, or that have failed in their purpose, or that impose on the people an unwarranted financial burden. I will not attempt to discover whether legislation is 'needed' before I have first determined whether it is constitutionally permissible. And if I should later be attacked for neglecting my constituents' interests, I shall reply that I was informed that their main interest is liberty and in that cause I am doing the very best I can."

 One of the most entertaining shows in recent memory was when Ernie produced and Charles  announced. We all lost a lot when The Charles Goyette Show left the air. I am hopeful we will hear that Charles is making a comeback to the airwaves.

See all of you "clubbers" on Saturday.
