Freedom Center of Missouri – Lemonade for Liberty
Last year, when city officials shut down a couple of Girl Scouts’ cookie stand in their driveway, the Freedom Center of Missouri stood up for their right to sell cookies. Now, they have launched a new effort called Lemonade for Liberty.
Here is what they say about the event on their site:
We are calling on all freedom-loving parents and kids to set aside Saturday, June 2, to make a (lemonade) stand for property rights! Not only will participants have fun by practicing entrepreneurship, they will help spread the word about the Freedom Center’s fight to ensure that lemonade stands remain legal in Missouri – and throughout the entire country.
They are asking that the proceeds be donated to The Freedom Center of Missouri, so that they can cover their ongoing battle. Remember, it costs money to fight against these bureaucracies. The government has unlimited resources because they use taxpayer money. Organizations such as The Freedom Center of Missouri have limited funds. In order for them to be able to fight for the rights of others, they need funding.

They have also created a petition.
If you believe that freedom means that little kids should be allowed to take part in this great American tradition, sign this petition to tell Hazelwood that Lemonade Stands Should Be Legal!
I encourage you to sign the petition here:
We need more groups like this who are willing to stand up for our freedoms. And if you don’t think that you will ever need this type of help, then I must warn you that almost everything is becoming illegal these days. One day, you may find yourself on the receiving end of a ridiculous law. Please watch “Illegal Everything” by John Stossel.
