Learn About What the Ohio Freedom Action Network Can Do For Ohio!

Wondering what’s happening in America, and what you can do about it? Here’s what Tom Hach, Free Ohio Now says: · Axiom: If people don’t want to be free, they won’t be, because every generation includes those who want to rule over all the rest! · Corollary: If people DO want to be free, they have to earn it! But today there’s no place for us to invest our time, effort and money to earn our freedom.

The goals of the Barnstorming Tour are to help people understand what we are confronting as a nation by using three videos he developed as teaching tools, and to then encourage them to up their game as sovereign citizens by taking action by supporting one of three Ohio Freedom Action Working Groups below or other worthy causes.

  • Ohio Election Integrity Network: For free and fair elections
  • The Ohio Roundtable ( Media powered by citizen journalists.
  • Ohio School Board Constitutional Coalition: Support constitutionally minded school board members
