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

Patriotism alive or dead?

 

flag

Old Glory, you wave proudly, without regard to danger, never do you discriminate from where you fly, always trusting, forever proud; you wrap yourself around the fallen, singing their last praises to the heavens.

And so, with such honor bestowed upon our flag do we wonder what sentiments citizens minds contain.  The flag has taken serious abuse in the name of freedom, dragged across the seas, shot at, shot down and still she climbed back up; she proudly flew over lands reclaimed for freedom sake; but the most abuse she gets is on the very soil she protects. Do we take these freedoms too lightly, thinking freedom a cheap commodity?

A resurgence of patriotism seems a rising event, tea parties held on town greens displaying Old Glory proud and tall; from New England porches to southern sea side resorts, to mid-west ranches to the far western shore homes she waves at the dawn light and bids us adieu at dusk. Glorious days, with only a trace billowy white, Old Glory reaches high to kiss the sky.

What ever happened to the flag abusers of the sixties, in their tie-dyed shirts and worn out jeans, hugging to their hips, smoking and popping the latest drug; giving them a chance to find themselves, seek a higher vision of life. They took to the streets with Old Glory dragging behind, through the mud or dust of the street, threw her into a heap and tossed a match upon her.  Their right of freedom of speech, said they could and they did.  None knew the feeling of oppression, heavy on your soul, taking your very breath away; the spoiled little children of freedom’s land, complacent in their ways; freedom a cheap commodity.

If they found themselves, of this I am not certain, wisdom of freedom, liberty and pursuit of happiness; seems lost forever, in the minds of the wretched spoiled sixties hippies now known as progressive liberals.  From where they came they brought their children; demonstrations and anti-American rhetoric by day and safe beds of complacency by night.

Is patriotism alive or dead; perhaps it is just asleep for some but very much alive in the once silent, majority making up the tea party movement.

Today a patriot, proud to be free, took a walk on a maple lined street, past historic homes where men talked of the Revolution and where Washington encamped, a mile or two away; the Declaration of Independence, voted on in July.  The patriot approached the village post office, there a package containing a very rare copy of the Declaration of Independence awaited him; people passed him on their hurried way to somewhere. He stopped, upon the ground, crumpled and dirty, Old Glory lay; yet Americans walked by her, on her and did not care; the patriot leaned down and in his arm he held her, in the other he held the package.

Together, they walked past the old historic homes, Old Glory and the Declaration of Independence, both old and tattered, both still loved; by a patriot.

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

Tolerating the Intolerable must end

It is mandated by some administrator, given his position not of the people,but by another of the liberal senses, if I may call them senses; that we hereby tolerate all forms of behavior, causing no negative action. A feel good law, whereas no one can cause another to feel bad about themselves whether they be intolerable in nature or intently disagreeable.

By nature we abhor all things intolerable, such things that are disgusting or despicable give us reason to announce it  and then denounce the particular behavior. As children we learned by parents example to be kind, considerate of others and display ourselves in a fashion acceptable by society. What has happened to our society where we now accept all that is unacceptable so as not to cause a disciplinary action?

In this very good season of jolly wishes and good joy to all, we experience the change in our society greatly. We see no evidence of fairness in toleration of each other as nature would so allow but only evidence of those afraid to feel anymore, afraid such feelings so natural would bring upon them the wrath of the law. How can it than be considered a season of joy when so many are going about their festivities carefully so as not to offend another yet it is those they are afraid to offend which blatantly spout what they feel with no fear of reprisal? What we feel is offensive and dealt with under law, yet what we feel is natural as we choose not to tolerate the intolerable behavior, yet the ill behaved may spout off whatever they feel without consideration of being offensive, it is their right, as they point out. I beg differ, what right has a man being intolerably offensive in his words and behavior, given full reign on society, yet a man of great principles seeing such behavior and pointing such out, shall be considered the one of evil doings? This my friends is the true exposure of corruption from within, such shall be expelled so great men can once again take their rightful seats in Congress and the Presidency.  .

Mr. Jefferson, resistance is alive..

“The spirit of resistance to government is so valuable on certain occasions that I wish it to be always kept alive.” Th. Jefferson

Upon these words, Mr. Jefferson, the spirit of resistance has from time to time arisen within the souls  of citizens, keeping such resistance alive. It is the points in history when citizens felt resistance too harsh or too laborious to contend with that we have developed ourselves a despotic government.

Citizens have revived resistance against the government as a great form by which we may restore what we have found taken due to un – attentiveness. Perhaps should former generations not found attentiveness as being too laborious the occasion of resistance today would not be decided.

I pose the question of how resistance can successfully and constructively transform into the restoration of government to its foundation? I say, sir, the citizens are indeed filled to their capacity of taxation and mandates, making it quite impossible for them to live in freedom or enjoy any liberties. May I tell you, freedoms and liberties have been whittled away from the people,so boldly that some legislators have gone so far as to call the Constitution a document too old, too outdated or not worthy of upholding. Do you not see the situation here?

The spirit of resistance whether it has slept quietly for years or ignored for reasons of complacency, is quite alive today. It is from resistance to restoration that we must not just consider but exercise.

I bid you well, my friend, should I wish you rest in peace, I know that you shall not for your I know your spirit stirs un-restful and there is thanks given to you for such consideration.

Yours in Liberty,

A Jeffersonian.
