"The only security of all is in a free press. The force of public opinion cannot be resisted when permitted freely to be expressed. The agitation it produces must be submitted to.
It is necessary, to keep the waters pure."
-- Thomas Jefferson to Lafayette, 1823. ME 15:491

HESPERIA, 11-10-09. The PURPOSE of the Hesperia Free Press is to offer alternative ideas and topics for reporting which are generally being ignored by the media in the Victor Valley. Ideas regarding politics, government, candidates and an entrenched bureaucracy, which burn in the minds of experienced people, need exploration and change.
As the elections in 2010 near, and they are rapidly approaching, the voting public needs sources to consult to help determine the candidates and issues they must vote in favor of. A viewpoint not influenced by power and greed will be presented. Successful elections in 2010 should become the stepping stone toward a secure, traditional culture, highlighting family values and the opportunity to demonstrate that the voters possess the power to elected office.
Too often in our valley, money has been the stumbling block for honest candidates and issues. Without funding, potentially great leadership has been denied. Fortunately there are techniques to inform the public without resorting to the developers dollar and the all too present undue influence of regional politics(San Bernardino County). The Hesperia Free Press will be one such technique.
The Victor Valley may determine its own destiny. This has been proven over the last few years by elections in which the people’s candidates have won political office without huge expenditures or resorting to threatening publicity about their opponents.
Verifiable information will be an important goal in this grass roots outreach!
