THE MANY FACES OF KICK THE CROWN

Want to be included? Send a clean, clear selfie to friendsofwalczyk@gmail.com to proudly show your desire for a true representative democracy.

Business Closures

New York's unemployment rate has nearly tripled statewide in 2020. You have a right to work even if your job is deemed "non-essential." Our Governor has used his unconstitutional seizure of power to decide.

Travel Restrictions

Many New Yorkers have adjusted or canceled important travel due to the inability to honor the mandatory quarantine upon return. This is a direct violation of your right to travel freely through our great nation.

Remote Education 

Our Governor caused chaos for students and parents through a series of unconstitutionally forced closures at the threat of withheld funding.  

Gatherings

After an executive order limited the occupancy of social and religious gatherings, New Yorkers began to stand up to the Governor for their right to gather freely and without fear of punishment.

HOW DOES EXECUTIVE OVERREACH AFFECT ME?

The governor has repeatedly bypassed representative democracy to push his executive orders. This negatively impact us all.

OUR MISSION

WE BELIEVE THE POWER OF THE GOVERNMENT RESTS IN THE PEOPLE, NOT THE CROWN

Why Kick The Crown?

The tradition: as New York fought for independence and statehood in our new republic, there were those who remained loyal to a king who governed with ignorant impunity. This site is not the place for them. For New Yorkers, "kicking the crown" has been a symbol of liberty since 1777 when it was incorporated in our official state seal. This is a place for you because you believe that the power of the seat of government rests in the people's hands, not some royal elite above them. It's time to kick the crown again.
