Magistrate Letters

The "project" of the SNC for 2016 is to send monthly letters from our State delegations to our respective State officials. Because most legislatures adjourned in late spring to prepare for the November elections, only five letters were actually written and sent.

"Magistrate" is the historical designation for a government official, elected or appointed. The letters are intended to be a friendly introduction of the SNC as well as giving insight into the principles for which we stand. Each letter is attached to this page.

Magistrate Letter #1 - December 2015

Magistrate Letter #2 - January 2016

Magistrate Letter #3 - February 2016

Magistrate Letter #4 - March 2016

Magistrate Letter #5 - April 2016

Worth Quoting

If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace.  We ask not your counsels nor your arms.  Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.  May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

Samuel Adams


What is liberty without wisdom and without virtue?   

Edmund Burke
