A Rallying Call to the Patriots of America

June 26, 2009

For many of us, this evening marked a very dark moment for patriots of the American Republic.

For too long we have fought an uphill battle to save our great and free nation from the treacherous hands of Socialism which endlessly seek to secure themselves around her throat with the sole intention of asphyxiating and killing her.

Many of us knew going into this struggle that there would be numerous battles, some of which we would win and some we would lose. Yet, for a strong majority of true patriots, we maintained a certain level of blind optimism that there were some things that could just never really happen. It was thought that America still maintained some level of common sense which would forbid her legislators from passing acts that would completely and utterly tear apart the fiduciary stability of her economy and her citizens. They believed that there was still some degree of accountability among law makers that would remind them that no office is truly secure unless the voters were content with their policies. The thought that Congress would ever pass legislation such as Cap and Trade (properly referred to as H.R. 2454) was as outrageous and unlikely as an enormous meteor crashing into and destroying the earth.

Tonight it appears as though those great American patriots were wrong.

Today's loss was a great one. And it is likely that many Americans like myself who believe that liberty is worth standing up and fighting for…well, we will forever remember exactly the moment we learned that the House of Representatives passed H.R. 2454, striking against our righteous fight a blow so powerful that it could very nearly have knocked the wind right out of us.

President Obama has indicated to us that the passage of H.R. 2454 is only the beginning.

Well, my fellow American Patriots, I have only this to say: bring it on.

What will be will be.

For just as our forefathers were not awakened to the evils of their government until they were taxed beyond reason, I believe our fellow Americans will not awaken to the swift winds of change blowing across this nation until they feel the opression of injustice in their own lives and pocket books. Our legislators believe that they can tax us into submission to the point that we are too weak, bankrupt, and disheartened to oppose their wicked transgressions against Natural Law. But I say to you: NAY, they are wrong!

The majority of the people of America have yet to awaken, but when they do, they shall be such a rallying and undefeatable force that no unruly and corrupt government can stop them. We are descended from a people who fought against the greatest and seemingly impossible odds, and yet proved victorious in the endless fight against evil and tyranny! We are a people who will not be denied our birthright of liberty and freedom from oppression. We are strong. And we shall take a stand.

Let not your hearts be sorrowed, fellow patriots! Indeed this may only be the beginning. And indeed this may appear as a heavy blow against us. But, as General George Washington discovered when battling the forces of King George III during the war for our Independence, we must be willing to lose a few battles in order to win the war!

Taxation will come. And so, too, will the usurping of personal liberty and blind justice for the citizens of our country. It is an evil we shall endure until the eyes of more fellow Americans are rudely opened until it appears that we as a nation of free people have nothing left to lose. And in that moment, that dark and grim and treacherous moment in which America seems all but lost, there shall cry out through the silence the voices of a people devoted and united in their fight against injustice! A people who have been pushed too far! A people who will no longer tolerate a government rank with greed for greater wealth and unequalled power, and citizens who are willing to throw down their livelihoods to abolish it, and to institute a “new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

And so, my fellow Patriots, it is with the greatest love and respect that I now ask you to buckle down and prepare yourselves. Prepare for the battles, which shall be waged in the legislatures, in the forums, and in the communities of America. Prepare for the hardships to come. And, oh how they shall come. But be not dismayed, for the war for liberty and the very existence of our long-fought and hard-won Republic is only beginning.

Today was without question a dark day in the history of common sense and liberty. However, I believe we have yet to see the worst. But, my friends, always keep in mind the ancient and wise addage: "it's always darkest just before the dawn". Dawn shall come--in time. It shall come.

“'Tis not in numbers but in unity that our great strength lies,” wrote Thomas Paine only four and a half months prior to the signing of the Declaration of Independence. That message is true yet. Let us remember our own history and be inspired by the great words and even greater deeds of our forefathers, for we are of the same strength and nature as they and equally capable of defending the free nation they established for us. Let us call upon Divine Providence to guide us as did our Founders.

And let us not lose heart. The road ahead is long and dark, but let us be guided by the light of liberty’s flame. We shall overcome. We shall overcome. We shall endure the many perilous struggles that lay ahead, and we shall overcome until tyranny and injustice are no more.

"Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" -- Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775

    Very Good! Add a little something about "it's always darkest before the dawn." -then send it on to everyone you can.

  2. Sadly, the House of Representatives is a House of Fools. It is time to let our senators know that the insanity must stop, but I fear their ranks are also too diluted by the weakmindedness running rampant in Washington these days. How I long for election time, and a chance to show that the House of Fools is also a House of Cards that will be toppled by the collective breath of We The People as we raise our voices in unison and say "NO MORE."
