“Don’t Tread On Me” Campaign Getting HUGE…
March 22nd, 2010
In my 14 years of running Front Sight, I have never seen any response as big and enthusiastic as the response to last week’s announcement of Front Sight’s April 19th “Don’t Tread on Me” mail campaign.
For the last week I have been working around the clock, responding with e-mails of thanks to people who are following the 3 very easy and simple steps outlined below so we can all send a crystal clear “Don’t Tread on Me” message to our elected officials on April 19th.
I also received hundreds of requests asking where “Don’t Tread on Me” flags, shirts, hats, window and bumper stickers could be purchased.
Here is where I found my “Don’t Tread on Me” flag and other items. Click the banner below to get yours:
And here is a new handful of hundreds of new responses I have received to show you ways you too can help spread Front Sight’s Amazing, April 19th “Don’t Tread on Me” Mail Campaign!
I cannot tell you how great it feels to be a part of this awesome display of POWER!!!!!!! I’ve sent your http://www.frontsight.com/Dont-Tread-On-Me.asp email link everywhere I could and encouraged all to do the same. My flags are printed, folded, in envelopes…waiting for April 19th…It’s kinda like hearing Paul Revere riding his horse..only this time it’s One if by land…. TENS of MILLIONS by INTERNET / US mail!!!! David M.
I was so moved by the great idea of your DON’T TREAD ON ME campaign, that I have done a couple things.
I did as you requested, and sent out your announcement to every person on my e-mail circulation list … about 95 names that regularly get articles and information from me online. Also, I used a color digital printing press to start producing “sets” of these … for the upcoming Dallas Market Hall Gun Show this weekend … to distribute these freely, as long as the person will follow your instructions. They look GREAT! I think you are doing a great job. I believe the Republic is in grave danger … and we need men and women who will step out from behind their “safe places” to confront this growing threat to our society. Please keep up your good work. Matt L.
I forwarded http://www.frontsight.com/Dont-Tread-On-Me.asp to everyone on my email list, and as a past President of Delaware County Field & Stream in Brookhaven Pa., (DCFS.org – 4,000 members) the list is extensive. I also posted it on several on-line shooting forums that I frequent. When I visit the club this weekend, I’ll also be beating the support drum. Frank S.
Hi Dr. Piazza,
I have sent this out to about 20 people and also set a link on one of the local forums, which has MANY gun owners as subscribers. I will be forwarding this to some others as well. Keep up the GREAT work. Robert S.
Dr. Ignatius Piazza,
I wanted to let you know that I have my envelopes ready to mail. I showed your email to my wife. She immediately posted the link to her Facebook page. She also posted it to a homeschooling group that she belongs to on Yahoo groups. There are over 230 members in this group in Davis County, Utah! Brian M.
Just a quick note to let you know that I have my 4 letters addressed and stamped, ready to go on April 19th. I have also forwarded your http://www.frontsight.com/Dont-Tread-On-Me.asp link to 300 Concealed Carry students of mine! Jerry B.
I have my five flags printed out and inserted in to addressed envelopes to my two Senators and on Rep. and one to the President. I printed ( IN GOD WE TRUST ) on the back of the envelope. I would like for you to suggest this to all who participates in this April 19th mailing. Thank you. James L.
After receiving your blogs for over a year now, your knowledge and direction has led a lot of us to get involved either for the first time or again. I thank you for waking me and others up. I am ready to send and support your “Don’t Tread on Me” program on April 19th!! Gary F.
OK Dr. Piazza,
I have copied my 5 “Flags” and addressed the envelopes to my Senators and Representative, and will mail them out on April 19. I want you to know that have NEVER taken a stand, or contacted any “Elected Official” before this, but yours is one easy way to get a “Major Point” across to them! This will surely get their attention!!! I eagerly await your “Reward” on April 20th! Kevin A.
FINALLY, a true patriot speaks out for the citizens!!! I’M WITH YOU, LETS TAKE THIS GLOBAL! Richard R.
Thank you for the history lesson. Even though I had served 4 years in the US Navy 60 years ago, I had never seen this flag, much less learned it’s history. Now I know and will be flying this flag along with my now flying OLD GLORY in my front yard. I believe the three fools and their associates have finally ploughed up a snake! Leonard S.
All you have to do to spread Front Sight’s Amazing “Don’t Tread on Me” campaign is forward this link: http://www.frontsight.com/Dont-Tread-On-Me.asp to everyone on your list and encourage them to join you in the April 19th mail campaign.

And here is the original blog post that started Front Sight’s “Don’t Tread on Me” April 19th Mail Campaign!
Original Blog Post:
When I started this blog, 100 Mondays ago, I didn’t think it would grow so fast. We now have over 275,000 subscribers who read my posts and forward them on to their family and friends.
Over 275,000 subscribers and growing is a number I want you to remember because collectively, with the power of the Internet, 275,000 subscribers can make history and in doing so influence a much needed and proper “change” in the direction our country is heading!
I’m serious and not only am I going to prove it to you, I am going to make it so simple for you be a part of making history through influencing a much needed and proper change in the direction of our country, and I’m going to reward you greatly for doing so!
Here is what I mean…
As you know, there are a number of organizations that have conducted marches and events to send a clear message to our government that the Silent Majority in this country are more than unhappy with the direction America is heading.
The discontent has no party lines. We are disillusioned with and distrustful of “politicians” in general and that includes Democrats and Republicans. Basically, we are damn tired of the Constitution and Bill of Rights being ignored, our freedoms trampled, and those we elect continuing to forget who they are supposed to serve… WE THE PEOPLE.
As you are well aware, the Tea Party Movement is holding numerous rallies in cities across the country through April 15th. The Second Amendment March on Washington, DC is happening on April 19. These are great events that will attract a significant amount of people attending, but there is no way that the “Silent Majority” will be properly represented because we cannot ALL attend.
But WE THE PEOPLE, the Silent Majority who are armed, understand our rights, and recognize that the current batch of elected servants in Washington, DC just don’t “get it” can send a clear and concise warning to the government that will make our Founding Fathers smile from above and send a cold chill down the spines of those failing to “…preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
Here is how easy you can make history and influence a much needed and proper “change” in the direction of our country!
Step 1. Print out FIVE COPIES of the most descriptive flag in American history, the symbol Benjamin Franklin felt was the most appropriate for the revolution when he wrote, “She never begins an attack, nor, when once engaged, ever surrenders: She is therefore an emblem of magnanimity and true courage. … she never wounds ’till she has generously given notice, even to her enemy, and cautioned him against the danger of treading on her.”
Step 2. Fold one of the 8 1/2 x 11 inch flags and insert it into an envelope addressed the President of the United States. The President’s address is:
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
Fold another and insert it into an envelope addressed to your Federal Representative. Fold another two flags and address them to each of your Senators in Washington, DC.
Place all four envelopes in the mail so they are postmarked MONDAY, APRIL 19th. Why April 19th? Because April 19th is the anniversary of the “Shot Heard Round the World.” On that day in 1775, our forefathers stood their ground against British tyranny in the Battle of Old North Bridge at Concord, Massachusetts.
Save the FIFTH FLAG for the reward I will give you after April 19th. That fifth flag will be worth thousands of dollars to you to show my thanks for your participation in sending a clear message to our government that the Silent Majority in this country will not tolerate the direction America is heading.
Step 3. Share this blog with your family and friends, everyone on your e-mail lists, and place it on all the chat rooms you frequent. Make this April 19th postmark “Don’t Tread on Me” mail campaign go viral throughout the Internet and OVERWHELM our elected officials in Washington, DC so they know, without a doubt, that the Silent Majority, who understand the Constitution — whether Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, or undeclared are NOT TO BE TREAD UPON!
Remember I told you that I would prove to you that as one of the 275,000 subscribers to my blog, collectively, with the power of the Internet, you can make history and in doing so influence a much needed and proper “change” in the direction of our country!
Well here is the proof…
If you and my other subscribers follow all three steps and just ONE of the people you send this blog to does the same, and just ONE of the people they send this blog to does the same, and just ONE of the people they send this blog to does the same, and so on… by April 19th, TENS OF MILLIONS of “Don’t Tread on Me” letters will flood Washington, DC throughout the week of April 19th creating a thunderous “shot heard round the world” that the media and every elected official cannot ignore!
All it takes to make YOUR shot heard round the world is to follow the 3 simple steps above.
And remember to save the fifth flag you print out for the amazing reward I am going to give on April 20th to YOU and everyone who participates in the Monday, April 19th “Don’t Tread on Me” postal mail campaign. Believe me when I say it is worth thousands of dollars to you and will dwarf everything I have done as the “Millionaire Patriot” to date!
Follow the three simple steps above and get ready to fire your shot with your “Don’t Tread on Me” postal mail drop on Monday, April 19th, 2010.
Our Founding Fathers stood their ground against the greatest military machine of their time, sacrificing EVERYTHING to win our freedom. Let’s show Washington, DC that the blood of our forefathers is still pumping through the arteries of the Silent Majority and we are rattling a warning… Don’t Tread on US!
Follow the 3 Simple Steps above TODAY and get ready to fire your shot with tens of millions of your fellow patriots through the Monday, April 19th “Don’t Tread on Me” postal mail drop!
Thanks for your patriotism.
I post a different article on this blog each Monday so I look forward to your visit every week.
