Party like a patriot

Empower Wisconsin | July 3, 2020

By M.D. Kittle

MADISON  — Kerry S. Brown and friends are declaring their Independence from overreaching governments with a party fit for a patriot.

Brown is hosting The Founders Party in Oconomowoc today, a festival of freedom that Benjamin, Alex, James and George would certainly ratify.

Guests will arrive dressed as their favorite Revolutionary War-era character. Brown is going as Samual Adams — he respects the Declaration of Independence signer and has been known to partake in the beer. A wagon led by a team of horses will take party-goers to downtown Oconomowoc for some of said beverages. Brown says he’s got a wagonload of pocket U.S. Constitutions to hand out to all lovers of liberty.

“I always have an Independence Day party and this year, given all that we’ve been through as a country, I decided it would be a better celebration if we really embraced the concept of what our Founders created,” said Brown, an independent director widely known for his commercial and promotional productions. “Then when most of the parades and celebrations were cancelled by cities and towns I decided I needed to do it.”

Oconomowoc’s liberal mayor and government officials, as heavy-handed government officials have done in out communities, hit the brakes on Independence Day celebrations amid the COVID-19 panic. They originally canceled the annual fireworks display until citizens like Brown spoke up and demanded the popular event’s return.

With an entire protest movement bent on attacking the Founding Generation and so many Americans screaming their disdain for America, Brown said this Fourth of July it’s more important than ever to remember what made and makes these United States so exceptional.

“The whole reason for the party is America and all its greatness are under nonstop assault from certain groups and politicians, but yet the vast majority of this country understands the greatness of this country. I wanted to celebrate it and make our own positive statement,” he said.

Lest we forget, it was the Founding Generation that took on what seemed an insurmountable government in the latter 18th century and waged a war for independence on self-evident truths. These may be times that try the souls of Americans, but now, as then, is the time for defenders of liberty to rise again.

“There has clearly been a concerted effort by some politicians to exploit the COVID situation to cause societal pain for people by forcing illegal mandates on our rights,” Brown said. “We are simply going to celebrate that our rights are inalienable and although there are those who want to destroy all that is great about our country, most Americans want to preserve it and continue to make it better.”

But make no mistake about it, this band of patriotic brothers and sisters plans to party like it’s 1789. The Founders Party invitation notes that days before the constitution was ratified, some of the Revolutionary War’s finest soldiers invited General George Washington to the old City Tavern in Philadelphia.

Let’s just say they didn’t go home thirsty. With 54 bottles of Madeira wine, 60 bottles of Claret, 22 bottles of porter, 12 bottles of beer, eight bottles of cider, and seven large bowls of punch, we’re not sure how they got home at all.
