Mission Statement

This site is dedicated to “We the People

Citizen Lobbyist Network is dedicated to advancing the noble and Patriotic efforts of the American Citizen Lobbyist. If you have ever emailed your congressman or attended a rally, you are a Citizen Lobbyist whether you realize it or not.

Much to the dismay of the progressives – The Tea Party, 9/12s, 10th Amendment (and many others) did not go back to sleep after the 2010 elections.  We are here to stay and we are here to preserve the Constitution and put the “We the People” back into our government, both local and national.

We now find ourselves at a point in evolution wherein the next logical step is to organize and maximize our efforts.  It’s time we increased our efficiency and really learned how to play the games.  Politics is NOT a spectator sport!  The progressives have been working on this for decades.  They are good.  Now we have to be better.

The goal of the Citizen Lobbyist Network is NOT to set agendas. That is best done on the individual association or group level.  Rather, the Citizen Lobbyist Network’s expressed agenda it to:

  • Educate
  • Coordinate
  • Network

It’s been said that if you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem.  So we invite you to participate and make a real difference.

Weekly on-line training classes are being set aside for NOW.  In order to get the best bang for our buck, we will be posting on-line You-Tube training videos.  Webinars are not out of the question, but we are going to concentrate on this method for now.

Thanks for your patience.

Many organizational leaders were in attendance on the initial training class and the reaction was unanimously positive.  Please email the class coordinator, Patriot Shar at patriotshar@att.net to sign up for the next available class – include your organizational affiliation and contact phone number.

The education, coordination, and networking activities are carried out on the ‘blog’ pages of this site.  Please check them out and remember the views expressed are those of the authors, not necessarily the Citizen Lobbyist Network.  Then, sign up and post your own comments, current events and views.  Please note: We believe in the 1st Amendment (in fact the whole Constitution) but will not allow inappropriate or hateful posts on this site.

Our greatest strength is in our numbers.  Please tell all of your like minded friends and associates about this Network.  We need active participation from ALL groups and associations to participate in Citizen Lobbying.
