A patriotic rally was held on New Year's Day, 2010, by the Western Missouri Patriots on the Courthouse steps in Lexington, MO. Organizers, Ken Blackmore and Steve Shelton, said the rally signaled the beginning of the New Year, 2010 elections, and was designed to send a message to Congress--"listen to your constituents!" Sgt. Paul Curtman, expert on political science, history and the U.S. Constitution, was the guest speaker. Curtman was a YouTube hit when he demanded an apology from Sen. Claire McCaskill at one of her healthcare forums last August, which the senator did not attend. The group began the rally with a prayer, Pledge of Allegiance, and the singing of "God Bless America."

SAVE THE DATE 1-1-10--IT'S COMING! A PATRIOT RALLY TO KICK OFF THE NEW YEAR! "Taking our country back, county by county in 2010."
Western Missouri Patriots Plan Rally for New Year’s Day--Public invited. Decorate your vehicle with red, white & blue, drive in the caravan, or meet on the County Courthouse lawn in Lexington, MO, at 1 PM on NEW YEAR'S DAY.
On January 1, 2010, the Western Missouri Patriots organization will hold a patriotic rally at 1 p.m. on the Lafayette County Courthouse lawn in Lexington, MO, that will be preceded by a truck, car, and tractor caravan. The rally’s slogan is “Starting the New Year right--taking our country back, county by county in 2010.”
The grassroots group will begin the day’s events by gathering with their patriotic-decorated vehicles at 11 a.m. in Alma, Missouri, at the intersection of Main Street and County Line Road.
According to Ken Blackmore, organizer, the caravan will proceed from there to Lexington, Missouri, where they will hold the rally at 1 p.m. Blackmore says vehicles may join the caravan as they drive from Alma to the county seat. The public is invited to participate.
Sgt. Paul Curtman, a Marine Corps veteran, will be the speaker for the rally on the Lafayette County Courthouse lawn. Paul Curtman is the young Marine who made national YouTube fame when he attended one of Sen. McCaskill’s summer healthcare town hall meetings. The video of his presentation was widely viewed on the Internet. Currently, Curtman is an inspirational public speaker and is running for office in his home district.
Curtman’s short address at the rally is entitled “Chains of the Constitution” and is based on the famous quote by Thomas Jefferson, “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”
Blackmore says anyone is welcome to join the caravan and attend the rally.
