American Bikers Aiming Towards Education are getting just that! What did all those hard working members get for their $50,000.00 plus, paid to the lobbyist this year? Nothing as I see it. Fact motorcyclist in Florida are worse off than last year. Motorcyclist lost several freedoms from the bills that did pass. Throughout the year ABATE members have been mislead by the state president, James (Doc) Reichenbach II, who also happens to be the paid lobbyist. They were told bills were dead, while in fact they were alive and progressing, and not to bother our elected officials complaining. Told again stiffer penalties were added to bills that would have saved the lives of motorcyclist. Bills that never went anywhere, because they weren’t intended to pass. What happened was the motorcyclist in Florida were, “thrown under the buss again.” New versions of those bills were introduced and passed which took away personal freedoms, and designed to fill the coffers of government. Giving broad powers to law enforcement to accomplish that goal.
ABATE president and paid lobbyist has somewhat mastered the political process and does a good job at, gaining confidence of the membership by, “pulling the wool over members eyes.” He has slept with the enemy and caught the government disease of deception and what is in it for me. Over the past decade he has steered the organization from its original intent. That being “A Brotherhood Against Totalitarian Enactments” to American Bikers Aiming Toward Education. Taking the easier route in the political arena has never benefited anyone at anytime. Although it may seam like it does, depending on who is giving the statistics. History teaches fighting government is much harder but the rewards are far greater.
Our country was founded by fighting government, and will only succeed as long as we keep doing it, and holding those in charge accountable for their actions. Anything less is not acceptable!
