Greetings to All,

WELCOME to the  group! We are excited to announce the establishment of our new CO-ED club, Rushmore Americans.

This group is FULL of freedom loving and patriotic Americans.  We are so thankful for the growth and evolution we have seen within this group over the last year. The trajectory we are on working as an action-oriented team where every voice matters, has been pivotal to the success our group has experienced. We are not slowing down!

Be on the lookout for growth in our online presence to other social media platforms, a new website, routine postings with information on our meetings, topics, events, newsletters, calls to action, press releases, celebrations and opportunities to BE INVOLVED and BE HEARD.

Thank you SO much for choosing to be a part of our group and our endeavors to ensure that life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness are not lost.
Freedom requires responsibility.
With Gratitude,
Rushmore Americans

Call to Action

We are actively working on election integrity measures in Lawrence County! 
A committee has been formed to address election integrity concerns. 
If you would like to be involved, please send an interest email to rw.lc.sd@gmail.com
Presence at the Lawrence County Commissioners meetings are necessary while we work on circulating the petition. If you are available and willing to attend and provide a three minute public comment on election integrity needs, efforts, observations, etc., please let us know. We would like to have at least one person there for each meeting.  Please note that Public Comment is scheduled for 10:45am and that time may shift forward and back depending upon how long other agenda items take. The reality is that this is SUPER inconvenient for working citizens and you will need to be flexible.

We have a County Ordinance Initiative Petition in circulation.
For more info or to help, please send us an email at rw.lc.sd@gmail.com.

Concerned Citizens of Butte County

Our friends to the north! 

We are Concerned Citizens of Butte County. Our focus is on the government of our county, to ensure that we have citizen input into the decisions that affect our lives. We insist that our elected and appointed representatives be held accountable for the decisions they make.  As our motto states, we believe in freedom and limited government, and we believe that our government, at all levels, has asserted, and continues to assert, excessive control of our individual lives and activities. We wish to reverse that trend.

Opinion - Does SURF = CERN? By Nichole Braithwait

 If you have been paying attention to politics on a “global” level, chances are pretty good that you are aware of the role the World Economic Forum and all their unelected “Founders, Governors & Members” play in this global game of chess where they seek to influence the world and how we collectively live our lives.

Money Doesn't Grow on Trees - By Gold Rush Discovery News

We as citizens go about our daily lives and our work, trusting our county commissioners to manage our county efficiently. Most of us do not have the time, nor are we allowed to take time from work to attend all daytime commissioner meetings. Most of all we are not paid to do the commission’s work of managing.

A video of the public comment can be viewed by clicking More Info below.

Rep Harriet Hageman!

57 patriots left our event tonight energized and motivated to save this country. We cannot thank Rep Hageman enough for coming to spend time with us this evening. Thank you also to Taffy Howard for South Dakota for the introduction and all the support you give the RWLC. FINALLY, a HUGE round of applause to RWLC President Erica Douglas for making it all happen.

SD Canvassing!

We were blessed to host the SD Canvassing team in July 2023.  Approximately 60 citizens were presented their findings on election fraud in South Dakota elections.

Past Rushmore Americans Events

Mineral Miners!

We hosted a hugely informative briefing in June 2023 on mining in the Black Hills.  Approximately 80 citizens were informed of ongoing mining and the potential of future operations in our area.

Affordable housing!
In May 2023 we received a very informative briefing from NeighborWorks on affordable housing issues in our area and what they are doing to help!

Movie Night!

We hosted a great movie night for 17 citizens in April 2023.   Politics and the Bible. “The two just don't mix” – at least that's what we've been told for the past fifty years. But is this what the Bible says? Is it what American History teaches? Or what the Constitution demands? Definitely not. In fact, just the opposite. In Biblical Principles and the Political Process, rediscover the Bibles mandate, recover forgotten teachings from American history, and learn why Biblical principles and people of faith cannot remain separate from politics if America is to enjoy limited government and a strong culture.
