(Jul. 31, 2021) — It was with a heavy heart that The Post & Email learned Saturday morning that longtime columnist, freedom and property rights advocate Ron Ewart passed away on Sunday, July 25.
Ron was founder and president of the National Association of Rural Landowners (NARLO), working tirelessly for more than 15 years to assist rural and urban property owners to exercise their God-given rights in an age of ever-encroaching government and rising threats to freedom. In that effort, he authored, “The NARLO Landowner Handbook” and created a unique “No Trespass” sign, the demand for which resulted in “an unprecedented surge in orders” as of July 11 this year.
Along with his work at NARLO, Ron wrote a weekly column urging Americans to confront socialism, “radical environmentalism” and “Agenda 21,” government corruption and cronyism, and “social justice,” taking only rare breaks. His hard-hitting commentary calling out government’s empty promises, deceptions and eternal quest for power, as well as many Americans’ capitulation to government by allowing themselves to be “bought off,” resonated with thousands, if not millions, and in recent years was often featured at news-aggregator Whatfinger.
The Post & Email was unaware of Ron’s declining health until several months ago, when he made a passing reference to it in an email. After three weeks passed without hearing from him, we reached out through NARLO and received the sad news this morning.
His last article, published July 4, 2021, is titled, “Just How Long Are Free Americans Going To Take It?”
Through his organization, Ron’s legacy will continue, his relative informed us. He then extended an offer to speak with us about it at some point in the future which we gratefully accepted.
