Keepers of Liberty

"The boys of the rising generation are to be the men of the next, and the sole guardians of the principles we deliver over to them." Th Jefferson in a letter to Samuel Knox, February 12, 1810

Our children today are the leaders tomorrow; how can they lead if we do not instill in them the principles of goodness and wisdom.  Education is most important, they must learn to read the wisdom of wise men, encouraged to ask wise questions in order for wise answers be found. Principles are based upon what is right and fair in the universe, what is give to us by birth, our children must know.

Allow children the follies of youth, give them time to experience freedom and liberty without reservations, to taste freedom and liberty gives one a desire for it for a lifetime. Let them frolic in days of youthful years; too soon they grow, yet while the young years mold them they need a happy heart.

Produce a good foundation in our children, allow them room for individual growth, but guide them where there are faults and praise them on achievements; a good adult shall appear. Take the time then as they grow, give them all necessary examples of principles with undeniable righteousness, they shall keep them close to rely their decisions on. Do not hesitate, be careful in securing news of their creator within their hearts, no man can be without a heart bathed in love, it gives him character, keeping him fair and balanced.

When upon your age, your days lingering in the autumn of your lifetime, give over to your children the business of guarding freedom and liberty; then too they shall prepare the next generation. Children are the holders of our existence, they are the keepers of freedom and liberty for the next generation; prepare them well and freedom and liberty shall prevail a millennium  hence.

Yours in Liberty

A Recollection of Liberty

“I should, indeed, with peculiar delight, have met and exchanged there congratulations personally with the small band, the remnant of that host of worthies, who joined with us on that day, in the bold and doubtful election we were to make for our country, between submission or the sword; and to have enjoyed with them the consolatory fact, that our fellow citizens, after half a century of experience and prosperity, continue to approve the choice we made. May it be to the world, what I believe it will be, (to some parts sooner, to others later, but finally to all,) the signal of arousing men to burst the chains under which monkish ignorance and superstition had persuaded them to bind themselves, and to assume the blessings and security of self-government. That form which we have substituted, restores the free right to the unbounded exercise of reason and freedom of opinion. All eyes are opened, or opening, to the rights of man. The general spread of the light of science has already laid open to every view the palpable truth, that the mass of mankind has not been born with saddles on their backs, nor a favored few booted and spurred, ready to ride them legitimately, by the grace of God. These are grounds of hope for others. For ourselves, let the annual return of this day forever refresh our recollections of these rights, and an undiminished devotion to them.” Th Jefferson in his last letter June 24, 1826, to Rodger Weightman

Mr. Jefferson, I see even upon the approaching year marking a half century from the day of the greatest accomplishment upon this land, you had the highest hopes and dreams for the still fledgling nation. The breaking out of bondage, denouncing oppression; all you knew too well, and knew our creator gave us an ability far beyond just living under daily strive and slavish abuse.  Who gave to another man the right to control another, where did he get the license to do so; we know it not be true, and you dear sir dared to stand with your fellow delegates, declared independence, put your name below the very words you wrote. Give the King his notice, tell the world no longer would the British American colonies live under oppression, but would break from it, with a sword against their temples, colonists took to the fields of battle, and won.

I dare say, sir, no time in history since, have men united for a greater cause; we share your joy and honor given for your sacrifice. The approaching celebration, surely your recollections be golden, a time to ponder the part of life you left to America, giving it willingly to citizens when perhaps your enjoyment of life at Monticello be more appealing. Surely the years spent from it and your family took its toll upon you, but if you suffered America did not hear you; only the words you penned has survived and we do know the countless sacrifices made. But honored we are of what you gave, each fourth, every firework, flag and song, goes to your honor and to the other brave wise men you called your fellow countrymen. 

So here we shall be approaching the fourth of 2011, we must take this year for more than reflection, but we must hereby take a stand as great as yours with fear in our hearts. At long last, our nation has stumbled, men faltered and evil corruption slipped in; for a few generations, corruption has grown, our government no longer of the people but of the government and we shake in our shoes in fear of oppression. This day approaches and many wise men know full well there is no choice, we learned well our lessons of 1776, do not take revolution lightly but do so with facts of grievances firmly in your grip, walk steady and with conviction with your principles; and dear sir we have, no other choice but oppression faces us. To this day, our minds be made, the ink dried words, affirming our ReDeclaration of Independence. Please bless our work ahead, if I may ask of your permission, kindly watch over us as we save Liberty for another nine generations hence.

Yours In Liberty

Re-Declaration of Independence

In Resolve with the Citizens of the United States of America, we citizens do united and express our grievances for redress; having done so and received no response but be ignored repeatedly do solemnly and humbly re-Declare our Independence. The people of these United States are and ought to be and remain in liberty with freedoms for all.

No man or group of men has a right to withhold liberty from the people, so given their liberty by birth under their creator. We have tried for redress yet each grievance received upon deaf ears. The time now has come where citizens unite for the common purpose of one mission, the restoration of America, to put back upon its rightful foundation this free nation.

It has been said, a free people shall remain free when they are so educated upon the issues pressing them towards despotism; we are so educated and thereby exercising our rights as a free people to remain free. Citizens of this nation, being so free and living in liberty, has supported all people in other lands the opportunity for freedom. The blood of our citizens being spilled on foreign soil for the sole purpose of spreading freedom, we offer only support and ask nothing but friendship in good faith. Our mission from our beginning being one of peace, joy and prosperity for all, it is our unalienable rights, life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, who could argue or debate such rights; only one with a mind of despotic rule could do so.

Why do we demand re-declaration of independence today, opposed to any other time in history? While it is proven, grievances have occurred in great quantity over the past 50 or more years, to our knowledge or experience; yet it is today, that such grievances have so accumulated, whereas the very fabric of liberty securing this nation; is torn by the grievances, enabling the corrupt officials full access to our rights and liberties; stealing them away like thieves in the night. We can no longer allow the destruction of our nation of liberty, doing so, allows this nation become a nation of oppression under despotic rule, where no man shall have rights but only be allowed certain life actions according the rule. We, the citizens of these United States are free and remain firm we will not allow such to change.

Americans have no sides to choose, they stand for upholding, and defending the Constitution or we are not Americans as our Founding Fathers so defined us. Many feel our Constitution is old, needs revising, updating for our times; what is our times; but a time of great change not for the better but for the worse, with rights and liberties disappearing, where men need comply with mandates and laws, unconstitutional but enforced and forced upon citizens, too afraid to stand against the enforcers. Most enforcers do not know their supreme law and rely upon the corrupt wolves for guidance, further spreading corruption. The citizens no longer will stand for the constitutionally ignorant to rule them; redress and dissolution of a corrupt government is rightfully requested.

It has been said, by our Founding Father and author of our Declaration of Independence who’s intellect is unmatched by any man today; “A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall take from the mouth of labor any bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.” Th. Jefferson

No government ought be so large as to consume all laborious earnings from its people, leaving them no bread earnings for which to pursue their happiness. This is the case with our government today, and we have so allowed it, being more content to lie upon the soft bed of complacency of peace rather than be attentive and resist the coming despotic rule. Liberty is not easy to maintain yet we discover it far better attend to our liberties refreshing from time to time our government, than to allow the wolves to tend our governing, causing citizens the labor of restoring Liberty.

Shall we agree we have lost to despotism, much of our Liberty and thus need unite for its restoration? The state of no Liberty is the sign tyranny has won; I find it hard for citizens who lived under Liberty, raising the white flag of surrender. Americans only know freedom, they thrive on it; being so absorbed in it, they do not see it seeping away a drop at a time under the guise of tolerant progressive ideology.

Debate upon what has brought us to this point, but the point where America has come, must be resolved. America is in dire need of restoration. There is no other method of restoration but a complete cleansing of our government, to put into place, a smaller, fiscally responsible government based upon the foundation and law of the land – the Constitution. We mean nothing more than, for America be set back upon its foundation, allowing governing of the people and by the people be accomplished.

Keep the Blame on the Guilty

There is a human instinct being unfortunate to admit; constantly practiced within the liberal, progressive democrats arena. If any event occurs whether it be obvious or naught, the blame must be directly immediately away from oneself [as an individual or group or party] and turned about to the opposite self {individual, group or party], a deflection mode is permanently engaged, no event passes their radar without being analyzed. Should the event prove to be worthy to the cause of the leftist movement, it is donated to the cause, regardless of who or what is sacrificed, anyone or thing is a fair donation. The liberals have taken a rather benign human instinct of denying guilt to survive or circumvent punishment or exposure, mostly seen within our youth, to a level that may only be attributed to an invention of the liberals or could it be they have never really matured?

The liberal guilt deflection mode is used extensively as of late and directed towards the new freedom movement. No event, whether guilt of any doing could arise, receives a directive of guilt of some wrong doing or thinking. Such behavior is obvious to the majority yet the liberal minority seems oblivious and continues their tactics. On many an occasion the obvious guilt directly points to the leftists yet even on such an occasions, the deflection mode bounces off the guilt to direct it at the conservatives, railing a, the conservatives made us do it, statement. How do the conservatives win, or do they have a chance of winning this? Look beyond the guilt directives, they are merely hiding themselves from the truth, liberals do not like being exposed, as mice do not expose themselves, rather they hide in small crevices only to run out grab what they desire and hide again; such are the leftists.

A great and tragic event occurred in recent days, a shooting of many and wounding of many more[ one being Congresswoman Gabriella Giffords]   in Arizona by a man, clearly of the left who’s mind snapped into a self terrorist mode, for the good of the socialist, communist  movement, which he aligned himself with. We mourn the loss of the souls that passed, pray for the wounded for recovery by God’s hand, yet the leftists are busy while we mourn and pray to discover the best way to deflect the guilt and promote their movement, complete the American takeover. Did you expect a reprieve during a crisis or attack on their own? Dare I remind patriots, the enemy never sleeps. The liberals [leftists, socialists, progressives, democrats] are the enemy within, no longer are they the other party but they are against freedom, our country represents freedom, we are a free people, any group or individual against freedom, who tries to destroy freedom is tyrannous.  We must understand their intent, confront it, therefore, expect guilt directives used  purposely to weaken us; use your true principles of freedom as a shield, nothing penetrates ideals of our creator.

I say, these coming days and weeks shall be seen as a time for speculation on how to handle the conservative freedom movement. Tea party people will receive heavy guilt directives, Sarah Palin and  second amendment supporters [ gun support] will also need to shield themselves.  A rather good campaign analogy used by the Sarah Palin force used the symbol of a commonly seen and known image of cross –hairs to show the areas within the country to target their campaign efforts. The areas within the cross- hairs would be targeted for conservatives to center their efforts on.  A good strategy but the leftist declare, the use of the symbol of cross-hairs are directing people to commit murder upon the democrats in that particular area under the cross-hairs. It is irrational, immature behavior used solely to turn a tragedy into a political hay day. We cannot according to the leftists use the words, cross- hairs without someone thinking – grab a gun, or use the word target without someone thinking – grab a gun; where do we stop with this nonsense? Shall we also mandate the words to be excluded from our thoughts or use? Shall we demand the mega store, Target, to change its name, certainly its target logo, so as not to confuse customers into thinking it is a huge gun store or worse yet to put into the minds of customers guns are good, go shoot someone. It is a completely insane thought process used purposely for the advancement of the leftist agenda.

Keep the guilt fixed upon the guilty. Use your shield against any directive shot your way. Intolerant behavior whether it be terrorists or freedom slayers, is abhorrent and shall not be tolerated by the moral majority. It is time, my patriots, it is time, pick up your freedom shields, allowing guilt accusations be ricocheted.

Yours In Liberty,

A Jeffersonian

Restoration of freedom from transformation of oppression

Dearest friend,

The grievances by which you and others found intolerable against the British King and rule was much for young colonies yet I dare say this present rule has me concerned for the country’s freedom. We have grievances of lasting injury to our rights so established under the Constitution, we should not wonder how such injuries were allowed. But, indeed they have and for a long period has such a group wanting of a transformation of freedom to oppression taken place. Grievances are piling, escalating in fact, upon each citizen after the election of the present President.

How prudent can we be? We have tried carefully to use the methods put forth for us in the Constitution, as declared in our very Declaration of Independence but to no avail. Liberties, rights, all ignored, our redress of such grievances; all ignored also. Citizens are flinging their arms up in desperation, what more can they do but to wait from election to election in hopes of better legislators, new men to change and undo what has been done. Dare I even tell you of my fear? Such prudent moves are useless and we are doomed should we continue these gentle tactics.

Mr. Jefferson, do you agree that we are within a time, not transient but necessary, for forced restoration of freedom from transformation of oppression? The transformation has given citizens time to settle into a slumber of promised peace with programs filled with unearned money and services; they are drunk upon these and now they slumber. We have tried to awaken the citizens finding many outraged we should call such handouts, tyrannical gifts, calling us war mongers, conspiracy inciters. With open eyes we see, clearly the country is falling, allowing its fall shall bring death, and imprisonment to those opposing it, yet fighting it brings risk of death  or imprisonment also, the latter is but a risk the former a fact; I shall choose the fight.

We know the tyrannical rule now shall only give their tyrannical gifts until the transformation is complete, then the citizens shall know oppression, the lack of benefits will quickly be seen, then I fear citizens shall turn upon the rule as well as us. The rule shall receive the wrath of citizens, demanding their addicted benefits, yet we shall receive equal wrath demanding why we with open eyes did nothing, allowing the fall. Ah, the fear of such wrath is worse than the fight against this tyrant we face. Shall then agree we are at the time of forced restoration?

I find most comforted to expose my thoughts to you by letter, I do hope they are received without causing you to lose a peaceful rest. You sacrificed greatly and too much so to allow it all to go in vain therefore I do implore you to send your prayers henceforth expeditiously.

A Jeffersonian

Have we crossed the line?

Is it disrespectful when citizens demonstrate a clear dislike for their President? I am poised with this question, to answer it in the face of many citizens opposing the man which holds this position. My desire is for such a position be filled with a worthy man and a patriot but find this in the present man, there is little doubt he not. Forcing citizens to accept a man of any character solely for the fact he holds the office of Presidency goes against  principles of good patriotism.

We must separate the office of Presidency with the man that holds the position, he does not change coming into office, he is of the same character and should his character be flawed, it is the man that is flawed, not the Office of President. I dare say, you can constructively demonstrate your dislike for a man’s character and actions without disrespecting the position. It is our right to ask for redress of grievances and holds no disrespect.

To hear within the ranks of some citizens we have no right to disagree with the President as it is a form of disrespect, I am greatly concerned for our freedom of speech, redress and right of assembly; all are necessary for our liberties. Should one tell citizens we are unable to disagree with such President, we have clearly crossed the line from a free republic to oppressed despotism. 

Is The Memory Dead–What happened to Pearl Harbor

My dear friend, Mr. Jefferson,

Yesterday, the anniversary of a tragic event, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, which rapidly threw us into World War II; was met by the media in total silence. I dare say, many saw this day slip by with no thought.  President Roosevelt said of this day,” December 7th will live in infamy…:yet, my friend, it has died.

Soon, I fear, July 4th will not be remembered or any other day that stands for our fight for freedom. How can a people become so consumed by their own wants and desires, never realizing it all comes with a price. Someone paid the bill for their freedom, their ability to be complacent. And I shall even be so bold to say, those taking free benefits, do not yet realize such ‘free’ benefits have a price, paid by other patriots. It all greatly saddens me, I find myself agonizing over the perceptive lack of reality and what proactive approach needs taken.

Stand tall, proud and strong, surely this is the stature taken by all patriots whether they be soldiers or citizens. The bombing of Pearl Harbor, an attack upon a free people, dedicated to keeping all people free, brought us to the forefront of the war. The souls buried in the Arizona are a constant reminder of this tragedy yet, one day given to remember slips by, not one word by our President. How tall does he stand, how proud is he that bows his head to our enemy?

What we heard on Pearl Harbor day, my friend, shall give you cause to stir within your grave. Our President with anger announces that those who denounce, resist his taxations and oppressive bills are terrorists holding the people hostage. How can one be held hostage from taxes and oppression? What people desire taxes and oppression? I do not know a free man who gladly gives such up for taxes, and oppression that follows.  Our President calls us terrorists, while he is setting up his despotic administration beyond a thin veil.  Turn over in your grave, but forget us not in your continued prayers for us.

Mr. Jefferson, you often feared our demise, but you need to know we share the same zest for freedom as you and that, my friend is what will keep this republic, free. As you may remember your words:

"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it?……
Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom?

Well, my friend, yes you did produce a fine republic and yes we shall keep it in spite of those complacent on enjoying the fruits of plenty, given to them by products of freedom.

Yours in Liberty,

A Jeffersonian
