Freedom's Call

These are the times that try men’s souls: The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country; but he that stands it Now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict the more glorious the triumph.

Thomas Paine, The Crisis, December 1776

An echo from two-hundred thirty-three years in the past resonates today in the hearts of men and women, patriots, soldiers, warriors - defenders of freedom. Thus is our call to battle. Like patriots of old, we are called upon this day to face the forces of tyranny.

The enemy is vast and well entrenched. From youth, our children are raised in government institutions, taught government policy, shown government lies, and brainwashed to see Truth as evil.

From the vast halls of printing presses from New York through Los Angeles, the liberal ideologue of lies spews forth its venom, slaying citizens where they exist – their homes, places of worship or employment.

The bastions of higher education have transformed into breeding grounds of communistic ideologies. Within theses formerly sacred walls, the promoters become enforcers of demonic thought, praising the tyrants of freedom’s cry.

Deeply entrenched within the very wellspring of government policy, the enemies of freedom rule with a fist of iron. With a fanatic determination, they seek to remove every historical vestige of America’s founding principles. These include our nation’s reliance upon God and the Holy Scriptures as this nation’s primary influence, self reliance through hard work and individual achievement, as well as the strong, rugged character that has defined this country since before its inception.

This war will not be easily won, as it is indeed a war that we find ourselves in. The casualties of which have already been felt. The primal element of liberty, the ability to speak out against those who would destroy our very country, has been hampered.

In addition, the proponents of freedom have been marked as un-American terrorists, unworthy of respect. Time and time again, they are informed that they do not speak for the country as a whole, and are instead an “angry mob,” which should be dealt with accordingly. The suppressors of freedom have been advised that when they are hit, they should hit back twice as hard.

As this war progresses, more freedoms will be lost, while the persecution of patriots will increase. Indeed, this is not a conflict for the faint of heart!

Yet this is a war that can, and must be won! Our armory is vast, containing beyond two-hundred years of American history. We have our Constitution, the principles and actions of our Founding Fathers, and above all, our faith in the Divine Creator who formed this nation to be His mouthpiece to the world during the time of the Gentiles.

We must not let ourselves be intimidated by the enemies of freedom.

  • It is imperative that we instruct our children on the history of this great nation. We must instill within them the same principles our fore-fathers held. We must lead by example as we boldly step forward and refuse to be silenced.
  • When those in power hold their public meetings, we must continue to appear in force.
  • We must educate our family, friends and neighbors by engaging in open dialogue.
  • We must be diligent in our efforts to remove corruption from its seat of power, replacing evil with liberty.
  • We must be careful to wage this war with facts, not speculations based upon third -hand sources. Before any discussion is engaged, arm yourself with facts then present them in an unthreatening manner.
  • Unify the Conservative community. If there are dissenters, confront them. Now is not the time for infighting. There is no room in any army for those who would undermine or strive against it.

I will not lie to you. Some of us will end up paying a heavy price in this fight for freedom. You may very well end up being such a martyr. Yet consider how our actions will influence the history of this nation. Will we shirk the duty our fore-fathers placed upon us in the interest of self preservation? Or will we endure to the end, that the descendents of our children may enjoy the freedom which we are so quick to profess a love for?

This war is unlike any other. It is not fought with instruments of death, but with ideas. The blood spilled is our freedom; the cries of agony are the cries of those who love that which this country has always represented. Will you stand idly by, watching others fight the battle for you, or will you consider the importance of our cause and join us?

The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people….This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.

Very appropriate at this particular time! Where can one buy an army helmet?

(Actually, not joking- the local army/navy store sells them for $25- get a steel German style instead of American from WWII as they offer better protection to the sides and back of your neck . . .)

And continue to pray for our situation and the Peace of Jerusalem . . .

I just hope I'll never NEED to use that helmet!

I'll keep praying, and thanks for the comment!
