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.

“COMMON SENSE”, I SAY, “SURRENDER”

By N. Napolitano, a Jeffersonian

How absurd, what is one thinking, asking common sense to surrender; and to what does it surrender? My dear patriots, it is not a matter of asking common sense to surrender, many do so without cause to even think, and perhaps that was the flaw in the decision, not knowing to think first. When presented with propaganda wrapped well in charismatic words, an individual, or group of citizens finds such enticing, therefore feels in need of believing falsehood, not using ‘common sense’ as a barometer of truth to falsehood. The leftists use this tactic well over centuries and millenniums for control of citizens, a slow, methodical process; more likely than not, producing a generation of willing followers.

Americans need know the tactic, being observed during the centuries may provide methods so as not to repeat history. Our friend in liberty, Mr. Jefferson aptly put it: “…..He proves also that man, once surrendering his reason, has no remaining guard against absurdities the most monstrous, and like a ship without rudder is the sport of every wind. With such persons gullability which they call faith takes the helm from the hand of reason and the mind becomes a wreck.” To James Smith, Dec. 1822. Do we need see how unreasonable giving away our inner common sense shall be to freedom’s survival, the survival of America?

May I discuss with you, the words of Mr. Jefferson, having pondered upon them for some time, and using my reasonable mind, of which I have not surrender, nor do I intend such; the importance of recognizing and acting upon the intentional threat to citizens’ survival as a free people? Patriots, citizens, understand when speeches, addresses, commentaries come your way, listen carefully; never be caught in the moment of charismatic airs, rather hold onto common sense tightly weighing each word against what is natural and logical; reasonable and not. When the words hit your ears and they grind and squeak against the norm; raise you’re your red flag, warn to others the approach of tyranny. Others have listened, naïve in thinking, had faith no one would dare harm, went on raising the white flag for hope and change that never comes; be forewarned they aim to harm freedom, they aim to take it away for their sheer pleasure of rule.

Remember the words: “ We need pass the bill so we can see what’s in it” Nancy Pelosi; common sense reasonably believes before signing any document you need to know what is it that you are signing, your signature indicates you approve of and are in agreement with the document. Why would citizens stand by, listening to the words and allow the signing or passing of any such document; yet it happened. Americans complained, I heard, but not loud enough, our voices are not yet one for liberty.

Remember the words: “ We don’t have a deficit problem, we have a revenue problem” Common sense tells us budgets rely on cash available, the money comes first, the budget comes second; a farmer does not determine how much milk he shall produce then demand from the cow a quota to meet, he milks his cow and determines his supply. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2011/02/15/945318/-We-dont-have-a-Deficit-ProblemWe-have-a-Revenue-Problem The press and media, journalists and writers, for the progressive left movement; ready to sell your common sense on the street for a buck, plaster blogs and newprint, regarding why we need more revenue to fix our deficit problems; in doing so, all the ills of the economy shall be rendered healthy. Do we believe this, can you if you have given away your common sense; for sure a unreasonable thinker would believe every word, especially if there is no regard for your own pursuit of happiness, that you only desire hand-outs rather than try succeed on your own. Tax payers no matter the bracket, earn their income and deserve the reward of enjoying it, not be penalized for working hard. Corporations hire and maintain employees, they need revenue to grow, become more competitive, create growth for expansion of the job force; heavy taxation slows the growth, encourages cutbacks, therefore does not help the economy but hinders it. Employees of large corporations should neither expect nor demand benefits from the corporation, unreasonable for the continued growth of such corporation, having unions act as mediators for demands, does not excuse the demands. Government employees should neither demand or expect benefits that exceed or mirror large corporations, such demands for benefits, exceeding the private sector, rob citizens of earned income, in the form of taxation, to benefit another extraordinarily. We cannot expect citizens who cannot afford benefits for themselves to pay for our benefits, we are all responsible for such benefits ourselves, using our own earned income, each shall save, structure and control our retirement destiny. The government has no right to force us in paying for others retirements, nor does it have a right to force us in having the government, a retirement planner. Using our own resources, our own earnings we can produce methods of retirement savings that meet or exceed current standards for far less than what is available, private sector competition always produces and delivers a better result. The citizens hear these words, shake their heads but they do nothing more, I hear the complaining, but see no action; Americans need be one voice for liberty.

Do not give into good reason for a few good slick words; they are words ready to pierce through our armor, making us vulnerable for the attack. Be wise in your thinking, listen to your common sense, give it not away, but keep it close, out of the way of the enemy. Good reasoning and common sense are all the enemy needs destroy and the whole masses are theirs for the taking. Do not think otherwise, there is no alternative to common sense and a reasonable mind, anything else is a fabrication of a socialist mind, determined by its own means for destroying a soundly educated people to a people ready for oppression. The country will falter upon its own shores and neither be able to steer it away from disaster or prevent it; all shall be lost to despotic rule or die at the hands of it.

Plantation Politics

Dear patriots,

With grave misgivings, the support of slavery beginning with benevolent aspects, hoping to give the people a better future from where they came; did indeed escalate to the commerce the buying and selling of people. While assumed people of ignorance, it is the ignorance of our culture, to take free people and enslave them into our free nation. Should we have so thought our culture to be superior to theirs? My thought of course is our founders did so as a method to bring these people to a better land, something better than savagery, however not expecting beyond such to develop into one of commerce.

The intention of many, as in the case of Jefferson, was that of teaching skills and trades, giving these people a method of self –sufficiency. To this end, numerous were freed when it became safe to allow them to leave. One must understand the times, knowing well the dangers of freed slaves, vulnerable being not socially wise; dare I admit being saved upon a plantation, a better life for slaves.

Freedom comes in forms, yet to keep one oppressed beyond the comfort of safe living, is by any standard under our creator, bad. Let a man think and work in free, protect only as he wants protection. Allow a man his beliefs, letting him express such as he chooses and do not impose upon a man your beliefs thinking your belief is of a higher form. Our creator allows all men to believe as he desires, understanding his roots in the universe and sharing the greatest virtue, love. It is from these beliefs, our sharing of love and peace, which brings us to this nation. No such person absent in their being such virtues need be here, not as I or we are better but it is against our foundations building blocks and cannot exist within a republic of freedom and liberty, the two cannot coexist.

Now in this thought, I need ask why such people who live against our principles are allow to continue their practices without redress. The wise and noble friend and patriot to freedom, Thomas Jefferson aptly wrote: “Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day; but a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period and pursued unalterably through every change of ministers, too plainly prove a deliberate, systematic plan of reducing [a people] to slavery.” Do we ascribe to slavery of a people for profit or do we ascribe solely to ‘all men are created equal’ and should by this, be free?

Ask by what means men are in slavery in this nation? A simple question with an answer complex in thought, philosophically universal, describes America today, whether agreed by the people or naught. The vulnerability of the slaves upon their immediate freedom in the 19th century, brought to its end, plantation slavery, the commerce of slaves for such bought labor, however, by regard did anyone cautiously free these slaves? The war’s end put upon the nation a new mass of people, skilled in laborious trades but lacking in most social skills. Greed and corruption found these vulnerable socially unwise people easy targets for exploitation. Such entities imposing their greed and corruption upon these people posed as benevolent individuals and entities, entrusting the freed slaves, causing them to trust, never realizing they only traded one master for another.

Friends, you either do not realize this fact or deny it, the biggest corrupt entity is the democratic party. For their own means of support, they have traded men like cattle for decades, ah, centuries and yet the good patriots have allowed its existence. How do we call men free, and allow the same Democratic Party to expound on the rights of oppressed people, so far as to rally people for civil rights. The people understood civil rights yet again another event posed as good, only to convince them to be further enslaved. Do not believe in their false benevolent acts, they seek only to enslave, trading votes for programs. The enslaved shall never be free, until such commerce [of people] stopped.

Every man needs to know and understand they are free, opportunities abound, prosperity is but a dream away, yet thousands, dare I say, millions are enslaved. The enslaved given services and money in exchange for servitude to the Democratic Party provides false hope, false kindness, with no benevolent expression. Dear friends, this party is enslaving us also, for they have us working out our dreams only to take it away in taxes, giving our money to the enslaved, trading our labor for the votes of the enslaved. This must stop, there needs to be a redress of such grievances, exposure of modern slavery.

Slavery has become commonplace, a means by which one party can and does commit a crime against the citizens with no recourse or punishment. It is deliberate in nature, causing generations to be impoverished and under achieve. By law and common patriot decency, you cannot keep a man enslaved, yet these poor souls do not know freedom; show them real freedom, and give them freedom. Educate the masses, expose the common practice of slavery, give light onto the atrocities of modern slavery; do this wise in thought for freedom of all men.
