Today Is Memorial Day…but

This is the day we set aside to remember those who have fought and died for founding principals upon which this country was created. The meaning of the day has been lost over the years, as people use it to kick off the summer. Advertisers, Marketers and retailers are as much to blame for turning it into a “sales event”. Parades no longer have the large patriotic turnouts they used to have either.

We seem to have become ensconsed in an apathy towards all things, except those things which we personally find distasteful. Special interest groups and the government – aided by a no longer free media – bombard us daily with those things they want us to focus on, usually involving the discrimination or limitation on the freedom of someone elses choice – via the fear factor, versus what we should really be focusing on….the preservation of our foundation and Constitution.

Politicians tell us what they want us to hear in order to get our vote. And we are just dumb enough, just drugged enough, to believe them. So while we are enjoying our day off from work and our bbq’s let us also remember those who came before us and fought for the freedom and liberty we have. But let us also not lose sight of what is happening today. Let us make this, not only a day of rememberance, but a day to open our eyes and think what role we can play in preserving that which our founding fathers envisioned for us.

I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.
Douglas MacArthur

I came across this site yesterday, when reading Devvy Kidds article that I posted on, that I think is appropriate to help wake us from this stupor we seem to be in. The author encourages its readers to share it:

The Demise of Our Unique American Identity

By CJ Scott

From this moment forward, all Citizens of the United States of America must insist we be addressed in this very precise manner by the media, academia and our politicians. Our treasured identity as Americans has been wrenched from us and diluted until it no longer holds the same significance. It is our responsibility to restore our precious identity once more.

The purpose of this article is to inform the Citizens of the United States of America that our sovereignty is in peril. Not everyone believes in the value or importance of our constitution. Some are in positions of authority and power and can and will do great harm to our nation if left unchecked.

The following statements are absolutely true. I have sourced my writing so that you can verify it for yourself. Once you read and explore the links, you will better understand the perilous circumstances of our nation faces today.

Here is the simple truth:

All Peoples of the Western Hemisphere are now being called Americans by the elite power structure. In treaties, documents, declarations, speeches, media reports, government, academia, and non-governmental organizations.

All nations of the Hemisphere are called STATES in the Americas. The OAS or Organization of American States has a membership of 35 countries. The United States of America is a member of the OAS. In decisions of policy making the United States is one vote of 35. In most cases a vote of two-thirds of the members is all that is needed to move a declaration forward. The OAS is an agency of the United Nations and is authorized to act by the Summit of the Americas institution.

While people are talking about a North American Union conspiracy, they are missing the fact that a fully integrated hemisphere much like the European Union has already been formed. Treaties have been signed. Membership has been established. If you read nothing else, go down to the links at the bottom of this article and explore them. You will see that all that I have written will be confirmed there.

As a faithful Citizen of the United States of America and a USAF Veteran, I have lived my life with the absolute knowledge that as Americans we have a system of government, brilliantly conceived by our forefathers and guaranteed by our Constitution. With this simple truth the destiny of our country and her Citizens are protected.

By this truth we have been raised and have raised our children. It is an ideal young men and women for generations have fought and died to protect. In a world of perpetual danger, a world so often without reason or consistency, this knowledge is our rock. Our constitution, our culture and our identity is our way of life.

We, as Americans embrace our unique identity as a melting pot, assimilating the many into the one – a nation indivisible. In this context I set forth in search of answers to questions I had not been able to reconcile about the state of our domestic affairs today. What I have come to understand has shattered my sense of stability, shaken my respect for many American legislators, and destroyed belief I had in their integrity and honor in the protection of our national sovereignty. As a faithful American, I am infuriated!

If you have tried to speak with your Representative lately, you may have come away convinced your concerns have not been seriously considered. The politicos, who once courted your vote, and made the pretense of caring about you, now seem too preoccupied by other obligations to feign interest in your frustrations. With unprecedented arrogance, Citizens of the United States of America are being shown the door and given a deaf ear. It would seem our legislators have bigger fish to fry than to worry about the concern of the American Citizen.

They have. Much bigger fish!

A constant outcry can be heard from citizens who seem more baffled and frustrated daily by the lack of simple common sense measures that could be taken so easily to secure our country, prosperity and citizens. We know what needs to be done and we have made ourselves very clear time and again. And, yet nothing changes for the better. Things consistently change for the worse. One might even speculate the worsening condition of the American way of life is intentional. But, why would that be desirable and who benefits?

If you correctly surmise your best interests are no longer being served by many in government sworn to protect and your well being is no longer their first priority, it is because the Citizen of the United States of America and the United States Constitution are no longer a real factor in the grand scheme of things.

With a heavy heart and an outraged spirit I pass on to you information I have discovered, substantiating all I am about to share with you. I believe every Citizen of the United States of America has a right to know the truth.

Time is of the essence. While we were dutifully serving our country in her defense, educating ourselves to prosper, raising our young ones to say the Pledge of Allegiance with pride and certainty, ‘Grand Schemers’ have been formulating the foundation for treachery against the U.S.A. In the ‘Grand Scheme’, our constitution is outdated, outmoded, and an unnecessary hindrance.

There is a reason. There is an expected outcome. And it is not good.

In the spirit of ‘remembering’ here are some quotes on “Liberty”

Edward Abbey quote:

A patriot must always be ready to defend his country against his government.

Samuel Adams quote:

The liberties of our country, the freedom of our civil Constitution, are worth defending at all hazards; and it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors: they purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood, and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.

Benjamin Franklin quotes:

Outside Independence Hall when the Constitutional Convention of 1787 ended, Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, “Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?” With no hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”

Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

It is the first responsibility of every citizen to question authority.

Make yourselves sheep and the wolves will eat you.

Thomas Jefferson quotes:

For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well organized and armed militia is their best security.

What country before ever existed a century and a half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.

The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their money, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (around the banks), will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.

No free man shall ever be de-barred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain their right to keep and bear arms is as a last resort to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
