We had many volunteers that were also key to making the evening run smoothly and they are all so appreciated! Major props as well to the BCSO Reserve Officers Division for providing security, Rich Hoover for audio visual and the Radisson Resort at the Port for working with us every step of the way, and thank you to our advertisers, many of whom have been with us for several years!
It is a blessing to have the opportunity to be involved with so many great Patriot members and officers of the RLC of Brevard and the RLC of Florida! Thank you all for all that you do every day and for traveling from all over the state to attend and support this event!

Gearing Up For 2022 Legislative Session
“The Legislative Agenda always includes bills that reflect the principles of the RLC” said Hallman, “personal liberty, limited government, adherence to the Constitution and free markets. This year though, the agenda will be expanded to include legislation inspired by the pandemic and the 2020 election; medical freedom, parental rights and auditing the election will be hot button issues.”
The actual legislative session begins on January 11th and will run through the first week of March. The annual RLC Florida “Liberty Lobby Days” event will take place during the second week of the session on January 18th and 19th. RLC members from around the state of Florida will convene in Tallahassee to promote the RLC legislative agenda.

“These Are Our Expectations …
Uphold Your Oath”
Good afternoon. I only have 90 seconds, so I will get right to it.
I am not here today to request that you vote for or against any particular piece of legislation. Kailey has a package for each of you which includes all of our legislative priorities.
What I am here to do is communicate to you what our expectations are of you. There is really only one. That you will uphold your Oath of Office that you took when you placed your hand on the Bible and swore that you would uphold the Constitution of the United States of America and the Constitution of the State of Florida.
If you uphold your oath of office, you will not take no for an answer when you tell the Speaker and the Senate President that you want Constitutional Carry heard and passed.
And that you want legislation repealing red flag law and restoring the gun rights of 18-, 19- and 20-year-olds to also be heard and passed.
If you uphold your oath of office, you will tell leadership that the one individual one vote principle is the foundation upon which our Constitutional Republic is built, and you want legislation calling for a forensic audit of the 2020 election to be heard and passed.
If you uphold your oath of office, you will support medical freedom and parental rights by passing legislation banning government at every level from instituting mask and vaccine mandates.
If you uphold your oath of office, you will acknowledge that Florida Statute 381 authorizing the state health officer to mandate vaccines, along with a whole myriad of other infringements, is a complete train wreck of assaults on the inalienable rights of Florida citizens and you will work to repeal it.
Uphold your oath! Thank you
The chorus of elected and appointed government officials denying what the vast majority of us witnessed on election night 2020, permeates the landscape here in Florida. Recently, Governor DeSantis said, “What we do in Florida is, there’s a pre- and post-election audit that happens automatically…So, that has happened. It passed with flying colors in terms of how that’s going.”
Also, singing from the same song book is Lake County Supervisor of Elections, Alan Hays, who wrote this past week, “Today, many Americans ascribe to the belief that an election was stolen.” Hays, who opposes doing a forensic audit continues, “Each election is audited by randomly selecting a contest to audit then randomly choosing the prescribed number of precincts for the audit. Then ballots are hand counted in those precincts related to the selected contest. We have a long-running record of 100% accuracy!”
Yes, per Florida election statute, risk-mitigating audits are required to ensure accurate election results. However, this assumes that an audit of a number of statistically random samples applies to the entire sample, all ballots. This type of audit does not analyze all ballots, it only extrapolates that the sample audit applies to the whole. Risk-mitigating audits do not perform analysis of each and every ballot to determine their legality. A forensic audit would determine the legality of each and every ballot that is counted.
If we witnessed anything in election 2020, it is that our entire election system is fraught with flaws, from registration to voting to counting ballots. These flaws did not happen overnight nor inadvertently. Our election system is engineered over decades and we, the citizens, have allowed it. Subsequently, the chorus continues by our elected officials; nothing to see here, not in my backyard (nimby), this election was the most secure election in history, Florida is an example for the rest of the country.
Today, we are left with an inadequate election system, inherent with defects or opportunities for those who choose to cheat. Known defects exist in the maintenance of voter registration records, defects in chain of custody for vote by mail ballots, flaws in voter citizenship authentication, flaws in voter signature authentication, defects in machines used, both scanners and tabulators. And the most significant flaw is that there exists no viable enforcement mechanism for those who choose to cheat. To date, no one has been held accountable for the cheating we witnessed in the 2020 election.
The truth is that our Florida electeds have not taken a look, so we nor they actually know how our election system performed in Florida in 2020. We do know that to-date, we have zero legislative or executive leadership in Florida taking action to confirm that we did in fact count only legal ballots, as prescribed by law.
A forensic audit of counties in Florida outlined by Representative Anthony Sabatini in HB 99 is our next best step to confirm or deny that only legal votes were counted in Florida in the 2020 election. This is a reasonable request from the citizens of Florida and merely a call on elected officials to prove what they say is true. At this point, we citizens may or may not trust, so we must verify. To do otherwise, is irresponsible and leads only to the further demise our essential election system.
Again, these are not ordinary times, thus extraordinary measures are required. We must all take action to audit the vote as called for in HB 99.
