The American Lenin

"...... if -- and this usually seems a bit more difficult to most people -- you'd like to know whether an individual is a libertarian or a conservative, ask about Abraham Lincoln."

A Patriot’s Claim

I am an individual.
I exist in the past, present and future.
I chart the path my life will go.
I exercise the liberty that God gave me as a gift.

You are a collective.
You exist only in the present to control the future.
You have an agenda to nudge and control the collective.
You seek obedience and submission to your authority.

I am an individual.
I have a Divine purpose to serve and protect.
I have faith in the pathway I have been placed on.
I demonstrate citizenship through my actions, not words.

You are a collective.
You wish to be served as the divine authority.
You have faith in your authority.
You seek slaves to consume by perverse words.

I am an individual.
I seek freedom from oppression and tyranny.
I will never submit to unjust human rulers.
I will defend freedom with life and limb.

You are a collective.
You yearn to oppress and terrorize.
You demand submission to your authority.
You despise man’s freedom and will take life to end it.

I am an individual.
I yearn for equality for all men.
I have the spirit of hope.
I have confidence in victory over tyranny.

You are a collective.
You seek to divide men.
You believe you are hope.
You are overconfident and arrogant by exercising tyranny.

My names are written as heroes, liberators’, men of honor, and patriots.

Your names are those of tyrants, dictators, and despots.

Our cry is ‘Sic semper evello mortem Tyrannis (Thus always death comes to tyrants)

You have no cry.

Our honor is ‘Nostrum Vitas Nam Libertas’ (Our lives for Liberty)

You know no honor.

Barry Goldwater Jr.: GOP Establishment Should 'Shut Up' Over O'Donnell

Former California Rep. Barry Goldwater Jr. says establishment Republicans who are bitter over the stunning success of tea party conservatives this primary season "ought to keep their mouth shut and just take a look at what's going on in this country."

The Enshrinement Of Essential Liberty

"Our nation is under siege, and the Socialist regime of Barack Hussein Obama has proven to be a more subversive threat to freedom than that of any sitting president in our nation's history." The rest HERE.

League Of The South Statement

On Saturday, 28 August, we witnessed--in the flesh--a false dichotomy in Washington, DC. To paraphrase a prominent Southern statesman, George Wallace - "There isn't a dime's worth of difference ...... The Beck-Palin movement will lure many well-meaning conservatives to the same place the marching band ended up in the homecoming parade in the movie "Animal House"--down a blind, dead-end alley.
