Desperately Needed: Courage in America

In two previous articles we looked at the way the media is brainwashing American citizens into accepting tyranny and what can be done to stop the trend. Ben Kinchlow wrote a very interesting and on target article talking about the media and their methods of subjugating We the People using brainwashing techniques.

We don’t have to continue down this road of apathy and acceptance that is taking us to tyranny, poverty, and slavery. We can stand up and take our country back but it will require courage on our part. It takes courage to stand up for freedom but what is courage?

The 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence showed a great deal of courage. If the colonies had lost the war they would have all been rounded up and executed. They knew the chance they were taking by putting their names on that document; it was there for the entire world to see. There was no hiding, no way to excuse what they had done, no turning back once they had signed. They knew what they were doing and that their lives were in the balance. These men showed just as much courage as those who faced the muskets, bayonets, and cannons of the British army. Our founding fathers had the courage of their convictions. They knew what freedom meant and they knew what it would take to have that freedom. They pledged “their lives, their fortunes, and their Sacred Honor” to the cause of freedom, not only for themselves but for generations to come.

Courage isn’t just facing death on the battlefield. Courage is also standing in the face of ridicule and derision. Courage is standing for a cause when there is seemingly so much opposition and so little support. Courage is standing in the face of hopeless defeat and saying; “Not here, not now, not on my watch”. Courage is being a leader, not sitting back where it is “safe”. Our founding fathers showed courage. Most of them never stepped foot on a battlefield yet showed the same courage as those who fought throughout the Revolutionary War, and in subsequent wars.

Today we face a tyranny similar to that of King George III. We face a Congress and an occupant of the White House, King Barack I, who ignore the very document these men so courageously gave to us, The Constitution of the United States of America. We face a media apparatus complicit in the denial of our basic freedoms. It is up to We the People to rectify the media and politician problem with knowledge and courage.

Seeing the problem is a key component, but knowledge without action is useless. If fear of the future and the acquiescence to tyranny is acceptable, you will never know a better life, only a decaying future fraught with tyranny, poverty, and slavery. When enough people have the moral strength and courage to break from the template and refuse to accept what is happening to us we will win. On that day we will see victory over those who are slipping our freedom out from under our very feet.

John Dummett and Tim Cox , both mentioned in the previous article, are two of the leaders out there trying to make a difference. One is running for office, the other is recruiting grassroots people to run for Congress, and people to help them. John is ignored by the media while taking on Barack Obama’s eligibility, but still he continues in his quest for the truth. Restoring the Constitution and the freedom it affords is his number one goal. Where does your favorite mainstream presidential candidate stand on this issue?

There are others trying to save this republic. Some run for office, others do campaign and organizing work in their communities, many more make calls for support of candidates, some give financial support, and all of us can vote for freedom or accept tyranny. We have good people at the grassroots level within the Republican Party trying to regain control for We the People. The leaders are out there. They need the support of those of us who profess to want a real alternative. Here is that alternative. You can pick up the gauntlet and earn your freedom or you can sit back and accept less and less until you accept tyranny, poverty, and slavery.

Will you be part of a future of freedom or will you sit back and accept the inevitable future being painted by the media and their political allies? Will you accept the life afforded by a dictator who promises you everything but delivers only what HE decides you need; or will you take a stand for a future of freedom, self-determination, personal responsibility, and prosperity?

The Constitution offers opportunity for those who will have it. The media, along with Democrat and Republican establishment political machines, offer a mediocre promise that will never be kept. You can stand for freedom now or bow to tyrants later. If you can’t see that by now I don’t know what else to tell you. We can no longer buy into nor participate in the hype. We cannot compromise the Constitution, and the future of freedom, by voting for the lesser of two evils.

At this time I am hard at work from within the Republican Party, trying to help those who would return the party to We the People. It can be done but it will take a commitment from people who have the courage to step outside the box and stand up for freedom. In this case it truly “takes a village”. Will you meekly vote, out of fear, for what the establishment offers you or will you stand for true freedom from elitist tyranny? Are you willing to be a part of the village that restores our nation to the vision of our founding fathers? Do you have the courage to stand in the face of ridicule, threats, and mockery to save the future of your nation? Will you step outside the box and support a dark horse or will you submit to the party establishment, accept their offer of “this or else”, and continue on a course towards slavery and tyranny?

If you wait to act until you don’t have any other choice you have already lost, our republic will be lost. Waiting until we are forced to fight for our lives is not courage, it is animal survival. A cornered animal isn’t a brave animal, it is a desperate one. Being cornered and desperate isn’t the way to fight this battle. The final door to the trap won’t shut until we are all the way in. You don’t have to continue walking into the trap; you can stop at the door and say NO!!! John Dummett and Tim Cox are two men who offer us a real alternative. Will you take them up on their offer or will you continue into tyranny, poverty, and slavery?

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Battle Lines Drawn: Patriot Volunteers Needed

Last night I watched the movie “The Patriot” with Mel Gibson as Benjamin Martin and Heath Ledger as his son Gabriel. If you haven’t seen it, the movie is about a man at the beginning of the Revolutionary War who just wants to mind his own business and stay out of the fighting. He had fought in the French and Indian War, and had seen enough fighting and killing to last him for the rest of his life. He wanted to live in peace, nothing more. As much as he tried to remain neutral, the war came to him in the form of terror tactics used by British soldiers against his family and neighbors.

One very striking scene was when Gabriel entered a church in a small South Carolina village asking for volunteers. He told them he needed help. No one moved until one young woman stood up and chastised the men for being all talk and no action. She pointed out how each of them had talked about freedom but now that the time had come to put their words into action they were hesitant to do so. Paralyzed by fear, they were willing to live in slavery rather than fight. As she spoke, heads hung in shame. One by one the men stood, volunteering to serve their fledgling nation in its time of need.

Men who wanted nothing more than to live their lives in peace and tend to their families rose to defend their homes from a government that threatened their liberty and their right to live in peace and freedom. They took up their arms and followed their destiny to eventual freedom for the thirteen original colonies, the future United States of America. They didn’t fight for a country, they fought for their homes, their farms, and the freedom to live in peace and support their families. Many of them died, never seeing the eventual result of their actions.

Another scene near the end of the movie was a reenactment of the Battle of Cowpens. A black man who had been offered freedom if he would serve in the Continental Army for 12 months stood beside a white man who had ridiculed him for being a slave expecting freedom. The white man said, “It has been more than 12 months, you are free”. The black man responded, “I am not here for that now, I am here of my own free will”. The white man who had been such a jerk earlier then said, “I am honored to be standing here with you, honored”.

This is what our nation is about. We are patriots; white, black, brown, red, yellow, it doesn’t matter. Whatever our skin color, whatever our ancestry may be, we are here of our own free will to stand together for freedom from a tyrannical government. Today we are activists of a sort; writing, voting, calling, faxing, and telling our government in face to face town hall meetings that We the People are fed up and want real change. We want our country back and will accept nothing else. We demand government Of the People, BY the People, and FOR the People.

The time may very well come when this isn’t enough and, like those in the early days, we will be required to do more. Some may have to lay their lives down for the freedom of others. Some may pay the ultimate price and never see the freedom they will have won with their sacrifice. For 235 years Americans have been risking and losing their lives to preserve the freedom of others; some here at home, some in far away lands.

We strive to avoid that calamity and to restore our nation through prayer and honoring God first, but also by being part of a freedom movement. We are working through the political system given to us by God and our founding fathers to effect the needed changes in government.

Millions of American citizens are taking the same actions. The TEA Party rallies are a prime example of patriotic American citizens working to restore the values espoused by our founders. TEA Party people are patriots, giving of themselves to make our nation a better place for all. They work regular jobs yet find time to get together on weekends to voice their opinions and to let government know that the status quo isn’t acceptable. These are the people who give of themselves without expecting anything in return. They are respectful of property, police, each other, and above all The Constitution. This is American exceptionalism at its finest.

This is America. We the People; with common values, faith in God, a concern for each other, a desire to help our neighbors in times of need, and a decency that some just can’t understand. Those who can’t understand this basic human decency call conservative patriots names like teabaggers, racists, Nazis, bigots, homophobes, islamophobes, etc. They can’t accept patriotic Americans because they don’t have the Godly personal values of America in them.

Like Benjamin Martin, we will not be allowed to remain neutral and untouched by the coming tyranny. Those who sit back and think they can ride out the storm are in for a rude awakening. Many Jews and Christians thought they could remain peaceful and passive in Nazi Germany. America’s future will find those same kind of people enslaved, imprisoned, or slaughtered. None of us will be allowed to live in peace, even those who fully support a dictator. Only the ultra wealthy, and those in positions of power such as Congress, bureaucrats, and judges will be allowed to survive intact; and then only if they acquiesce to the tyrannical ruler. The rest of us will be subjected to poverty, imprisonment, torture, and death regardless of political opinion.

As I look around today I see America everywhere I look. I see men, women, and children of all colors, all economic levels, all faith denominations coming together for a common goal; the restoration of the Constitution and the America given to us by God and our founding fathers. It won’t be easy but nothing worth while ever seems to be easily attainable.

The battle lines have been drawn by those who are determined to subjugate the citizens of the United States under a dictatorial oligarchy involving both political parties. Those few in Congress who stand with We the People need our support. Until now our actions have been within peaceful and civil means, and hopefully that will be enough to stem the tide of tyranny. If not, citizens must be willing to stand against the tyranny whatever the cost may be.

The anarchists on the left intend to destroy what is left of freedom with riots of unprecedented proportion during the summer and fall. Billionaire George Soros and his operatives have been very open about what they intend to accomplish. The G-8 summit and the conventions of both political parties are going to be targeted by people intent on installing martial law and dictatorship. The Occupy Wall Street crowds are mere pawns in a sinister plan to establish a dictatorship that will affect all citizens. If these plans are successful elections are questionable. A Democrat governor and several members of Congress have already called for the suspension of elections and the Constitution. They are serious about subjugating We the People.

We the People, the many millions who understand and appreciate American values, must pull together to return this great nation to what John Winthrop described in the 1700’s as “a shining city on a hill”. A nation established by great men with a vision from God and a courage that lives today in the hearts and minds of true American patriots will live on. We owe this to those who have gone before and those still to come.

The battle lines have been drawn by those who seek unlimited power over American citizens. They will not back down. Where do you stand? Will you be one who sits idly by while your neighbors are sent to internment camps or will you be one of those who will stand when needed to “protect and defend” the Constitution of the United States of America and your liberty?

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.

Letter to Congress: S.1867/HR 1540

Please copy this letter, put your name on it and send it to your congressional delegation. Your freedom is at stake. Put this on top of S. 679 that takes congressional oversight away and you have the final ingredient needed for tyranny to take over in America. I am e-mailing this to my representatives today.

December 10, 2011

Sen. Coburn, Sen. Inhofe, Rep. Boren,

I am writing about the National Defense Authorization Act (S. 1867/H. R. 1540). This legislation authorizes the President of the United States to order the military to arrest and detain American citizens for “suspected” terrorist activities or sympathies. It also provides for indefinite detention, at sites either inside or outside of the United States, without charges being preferred against said citizen. Apparently, according to a White House statement, Obama objects to the alien detainee provisions of this legislation. That is just great, our esteemed leader objects to alien detention but not citizen detention! That tells me a great deal about the design and purpose of this legislation. All that is necessary to enact the provision of this legislation is for a neighbor to denounce a citizen as a “possible terrorist”. History is full of denunciations; the French revolution, the Salem witch trials, the Russian revolution, Nazi Germany, China, Cuba, North Korea, etc.

By passing this legislation you are effectively negating the 4th, 5th, 6th, and 8th amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America. This legislation has also begun the active search for private companies to staff the FEMA camps that have been built as a result of S. 645, passed in 2009 I believe it was. At the time I protested the building of these camps, designed just like the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. The response was that these camps were built for housing victims of natural disasters. I didn’t buy that lie then and I don’t buy it now. These camps are for the subjugation and imprisonment of American citizens who will not bow down to a tyrant.

If the government intent is housing victims of natural disasters, why the razor wire and barbed wire? Why the double fence with a guard and dog run between the fences? Why the huge iron gates with the massive locks and chains? Why the guard houses outside the compound? Why the machine gun capable guard towers? Why the proximity to railroad tracks, just as in Nazi Germany? Am I to understand that civilians being housed after their homes have been destroyed have to be fenced in like animals? Sounds like Bovine Scatology to me.

And why all of a sudden does Congress and the Obama regime begin staffing these camps? This new legislation comes out, after the camps being around for 3 years, and suddenly it is important to begin staffing them right before the 2012 elections? Would this have anything to do with Governor Beverly Perdue (D- North Carolina) calling for the suspension of elections? Would this have anything to do with Rep. Jesse Jackson (D-ILL), and others, calling for the suspension of the Constitution so Barack Obama can “do what he needs to do” to “transform this nation”? Is this in preparation for those who disobey martial law provisions?

Would this have anything to do with the provision in Obamacare providing for a civilian “defense force” equal to or greater than the United States military, equipped as well or better than the United States military and pledging their loyalty to Obama? Has this happened before in history? I seem to remember Hitler’s Brown Shirts, the SS, and the Gestapo. I remember the KGB and their terror campaign against anyone who spoke up for freedom, or was even suspected of thinking about freedom.

If the government is concerned about ”homegrown” muslim terrorists it doesn’t need FEMA camps divided into 10 districts with hundreds of camps scattered throughout the nation. There aren’t that many muslims, much less muslim terrorists in America. Of course, with the current regime not acknowledging muslim terrorism that can’t be the reason for the camps can it?

And what does the current regime, and many in Congress, consider the threat to America? Let’s take a look at what the Department of Homeland Security considers a threat: Military veterans, especially combat veterans and those with special operations training, white males, Christians, NRA members, people missing fingers (?), those who are against abortion on demand, TEA Party members or supporters, anyone with extra food and water in case of emergencies, gun owners, and on and on. Need I go on with the list?
That our government is targeting American citizens with this bill is plain enough. The Obama regime, along with the Democrats and RINO’s in Congress, has been targeting conservatives for several years and now we see this being brought into a clearer focus.

It is bad enough that these things are happening but to see the votes be 93-7 in the Senate and 406-17 in the House is staggering, and frightening. Now I understand that the versions are being forged into a single bill behind closed doors. Once again We the People see our government doing things behind closed doors, subjugating us by subterfuge. Transparancy? Not in Washington D. C.

All of a sudden Lindsey Graham and John McCain come out and say they didn’t realize that this bill provides for the repeal of sodomy and bestiality regulations in the military. It is bad enough that these regulations are taken out but for two of the leading proponents of this to now say they didn’t know what is in the bill is appalling once again. Do they, or you, know what else is in the bill? Is this “we have to pass it so we can find out what is in it” legislation again? Does anyone read anything in Washington or does everyone go on talking points by those who write such tripe?

This is what Operation Fast & Furious was all about wasn’t it? Manufacture an excuse to abolish the 2nd Amendment and begin the systematic confiscation of all firearms. Adolph Hitler did this as a prelude to his massacre of millions, Stalin did this as a prelude to his massacre of millions, and guess what, every other despot who desires to subject his citizens to tyranny first rounds up any method of self-defense before slaughtering citizens wholesale.

You have essentially declared war, in the normal back room manner, on We the People, the citizens of the United States. I believe Congress and the administration either don’t understand the gravity of what you are doing or don’t care. Our nation was forged when farmers and woodsmen who desired to live in freedom stood up against a tyrannical government and won their freedom from King George and England. We the People will not be subjugated again. Our forefathers have fought war after war against tyranny, first to stop the tyranny, and many more times to prevent it from returning.

The Revolutionary War won our freedom, the War of 1812 preserved it. The Civil War won freedom for slaves, black and white. World War II preserved the freedom won in the first wars by stopping the tyranny of Hitler, Mussolini, and Tojo. And now while our brave soldiers are fighting tyranny in foreign lands their government is busy subjugating their families back home.

This will not be allowed to stand. You can kill thousands of us, you can imprison millions of us in the FEMA camps but you will never be able to subjugate the will of the American people. We have known freedom for too long to let it go by the wayside now. Americans are not going to give up their guns and passively walk into the gas chambers as the Jews did in Nazi Germany. We the People will not stand idly by and see our freedoms taken by despots, regardless of which political party they belong to. You will have to fight us in the streets, the country, and wherever you find us. There are millions of us ready to defend our freedoms, and the freedoms of our fellow citizens, with our lives. We will not surrender to tyranny peacefully.

Congress needs to scrap this legislation and go back to the drawing board. In the first place, these “comprehensive” bills have more trash than substance in them because no one reads any of them due to the length and the fact that reading legislation takes time away from “more important things”. Any provision that allows citizens to be treated other than provided for in the Constitution should be summarily tossed into the garbage can. Our national defense can be provided for without subjugating the American people to summary arrest without charge, without trial, without just cause.

The same Republicans who gave us the Patriot Act are now tightening the screws even more. I assume this will continue until we fight back. I don’t condone violence and don’t wish to see it come to that but We the People can only take so much before we won’t back up any longer. The TEA Party arose out of abuse by government, choosing to peacefully protest government tyranny. Unlike the Occupy Wall Street clowns, TEA Party people rallied in peace, without assaults, without vandalism, without rapes, without attacking police, without arrests. That should prove the patriotism of TEA Party minded people and show government that we expect to be heard without resorting to violence.

Don’t misunderstand and take the peaceful rallies of conservatives as a lack of resolve. Peaceful doesn’t mean cowardly, it means willing to work within the system to make changes. Peaceful doesn’t mean we will willingly march to the slaughter house.
I look forward to hearing that this situation has been resolved and that We the People are not going to be forced to fight a second war for independence.

I submit this in the name of the Most Holy Trinity, in faith, with the responsibility given to me by Almighty God to honor His work and not let it die from neglect.
Sincerely,

Bob Russell
