Obama’s ‘CHANGE’ for America is Nearly Completed

I’m Afraid for My Grandchildren

distress_flag_20I am one month short of 81 and have lived under twelve, (12) Presidents to date, in order; Roosevelt; Truman; Eisenhower; Kennedy; Johnson, Nixon; Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush (41); Clinton; Bush (43) and now Obama, (# 12 performing like # 13). Through my years, I have voted for some of these presidents and against some. I can find fault and have been able to criticize each. I can equally find positive attributes in them all, until Obama.

Mercer: Libertarian Anarchism’s ‘JUSTICE’ Problem

mercerTo the extent the Constitution comports with the natural law – upholding the sanctity of life, liberty, privacy, property and due process – it is good; to the extent it doesn’t, it is bad. The manner in which the courts have interpreted the U.S. Constitution makes the Articles of Confederation, which were usurped in favor of the Constitution at the Philadelphia convention, a much better founding document than the Constitution.

Baldwin: Operation Jade Helm: Should We Be Worried?

jadehelmFor two months this summer, the U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) will conduct Realistic Military Training (RMT) Operation Jade Helm 15 (JH 15) in seven Southwestern U.S. states: California, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas. Military spokesmen say the operation is merely a standard training exercise designed to prepare Special Forces troops for warfare overseas.

According to the London Daily Mail, Army spokesman Lt. Col. Mark Lastoria said,

“‘This exercise is routine training to maintain a high level of readiness for Army Special Operations Forces because they must be ready to support potential missions anywhere in the world on a moment’s notice.’”

Ross: To An Ungrateful & Undeserving Nation

ross-i_quitYou can hardly drive anywhere these days without seeing one of those yellow stickers on someone’s vehicle with the words “Support Our Troops” written across it. As a thirteen year veteran of the United States Air Force it makes me proud to see so many people who stand behind the brave men and women in our Armed Forces who at any moment may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice for their country.

That being said, I cannot help but be saddened by the fact that so many people in this country do not have the foggiest idea of what principles those brave men and women are fighting for. I would be willing to bet that if you were to stop and ask people what it was our servicemen/women are fighting for, or against, you would probably hear one of three things. Should you conduct such a survey you would most likely hear that they were fighting against terrorism or for freedom or liberty. Continue reading

Lessons From the Beginning (Part VII)

Federalist_Papers_mini_01*Author’s NOTE: Quite possibly the least covered aspect of the founding era of America is the role played by those who became known as the Anti-federalists. In a deceptive move, those among our founders who wanted a Monarchist, or at the very least a Nationalist form of government, referred to themselves as “Federalists,” thus establishing a political paradigm that is much on display in our country even today. The Federalists misrepresented what they stood for politically in order to gain the political power and authority to do what they wanted, knowing full well they could not gain such power by telling the truth. Using that as a benchmark, we could refer to almost every politician who runs for office today, especially in both major political parties, as a “Federalist.” The Anti-federalists discerned the motives of the Federalists from the very beginning as we shall see below. They used their vast knowledge of the past to predict what would become of the proposed form of government in what you will see as a hauntingly accurate prediction. Without the Anti-federalists there would have been no Bill of Rights added to the Constitution in 1789. Suffice it to say the Liberty and Freedom we claim we want returned to us from our tyrannical government is the very form of government cherished by the Anti-federalists of the founding era of America. (M.G.) Continue reading

Caruba: Avoiding Hillary Misery

caruba041215While we endure the daily lies of President Obama, do we really want to have another four to eight years more of Hillary Clinton’s? It’s not like we don’t have ample evidence of her indifference to the truth and that is not what America wants in a President, now or ever.

The office has already been degraded to a point where neither our allies nor our enemies trusts anything Obama says. Do we really want to continue a process that could utterly destroy our nation? Continue reading

Can An Obscure Author Rise From The Shadows to Become President?

out of the shadowsOur last two articles hinted at the potential run for president of the United States. We want to thank all those who encouraged us to run and for the positive comments to our recent articles and to our Presidential Platform. With the number of responses in so far, it is running 20 to 1 in favor of us continuing to explore the possibilities. In spite of this encouragement, we nevertheless must face some unavoidable realities.

What gets a president elected in the United States today? The answers only boil down to a few vital elements. The first and most important element is money. Money buys massive national exposure. Without the money, a candidate is done before he starts. Continue reading

The Driver’s License Of The Future Is Coming To Your Smartphone

A few states have begun the journey toward offering a digital version of your driver’s license that would reside on your phone. But the going could be stop and go for a while.

Your driver's license may one day be a mobile app. - MorphoTrust

Your driver’s license may one day be a mobile app. – MorphoTrust

The road ahead may soon lead to a digital driver’s license on your mobile phone.

The printed plastic driver’s license has been a standard for decades, acting not just as proof that you can drive but as an ID to verify your age and identity.

Getting issued a license is a rite of passage for many a teenager. The license has a status that transcends mere motoring.

Now, just as concert tickets, airline boarding passes, Starbucks loyalty cards and even your wallet are migrating onto your smartphone, your driver’s license seems headed down the same route.

The world is changing, and a lot of transactions and activities that people do are now done in digital formats,” said Mike Williams, chief of communications for the Department of Motor Vehicles in Delaware. “You can do so much with your smartphone. You can pay at the gas pump. You can go to the grocery store. You don’t even need a debit card sometimes anymore. So this is just a movement in that direction.” Continue reading

America is Choking: Operation Chokepoint

choke_point_bannerLast fall, I got a strange request from the bank I’ve been doing business with for more than 10 years. For the first time ever, this bank asked to see our books. When we asked why, they told us that they needed to review our risk profile.

It seemed odd to me, because we do everything by the book and are about as low-risk as a grocery store or a dry cleaning service. Not to mention the fact that, through all of the various fees we have to pay, our company generates tens of thousands of dollars in revenue for our bank each month.

With nothing to hide, we complied with the request. And naturally, we passed our unexpected risk assessment with flying colors. The bank thanked us for our cooperation, but never really explained the situation to my satisfaction.

A month later we learned about ‘Operation Chokepoint’ Continue reading

Ross: You Don’t Know The First Thing About Me

CLICK on IMAGEAwhile back I purchased a book entitled Jefferson & Hamilton The Rivalry That Forged A Nation. I found it interesting not so much because of the views held by these two men in regards to government, but in how their lives forged the views held by both. You see each of us grows up and the things we experience shape the person we are to become later in life.

So while you may know me now and see how I speak and act you have no idea of who I really am and what life events shaped me into the person I am now. This will be the first time I have written anything of an autobiographical nature. I won’t go into my entire life, just the events that I feel influenced me the most and made me who I am now.

So if you have ever been interested in finding out what makes Neal Ross tick, here’s your chance to finally get some answers. But before I begin I want to make it perfectly clear that I do not blame any of the characters in this little drama that I call my life. Each of these people had their own life experiences which shaped them into who they are. I am only trying to show how they influenced me. Continue reading

Ewart: Government Doesn’t Give You Freedom, YOU TAKE IT!

“Politicians spout endless bromides, trite phrases and meaningless clichés in a high-charged emotional environment to get you to vote for them, or to convince you they are going to do something for you that government hasn’t done before, or re-start something government should have been doing in the first place. Some politicians actually mean what they say, as naïve’ as they might be. But most politicians haven’t a clue what they will be able to do for you, because they are really intent on what they are going to do for them. The term “Honorable Politician” is almost on oxymoron, especially the longer a politician is in government.. The real tragedy is that millions of people believe them and hang on every word, to their own peril.” ~ Ron Ewart

ewart_signWe listened to Ted Cruz’s speech the other day where he announced that he is running for president. Like most politicians, he uttered all the right patriotic phrases to appeal to the emotions in the masses, at least the conservative masses. One phrase stuck out in his speech though. This phrase has been repeated throughout American history since it was uttered by Patrick Henry at the St John’s Church in Virginia on March 23, 1775 when he shouted, “Give Me Liberty, or Give Me Death!

Like millions of us, we have heard this phrase over and over again, shouted from the rooftops and in many speeches and writings by politicians and patriots. Hearing it again coming out of Ted Cruz’s mouth, we suddenly realized how the phrase could be interpreted to mean that government must give us liberty, or we prefer death in the alternative. But government can’t grant us something we have a natural right to, by virtue of our human existence. Freedom is a natural right, not granted by government. If freedom is to exist in any form, it must be preserved, protected and defended by those sovereign, natural born individuals upon which freedom has been bestowed by our creator. Government always takes freedom, it never grants it, or defends it. If government takes away freedom and it always will in time, freedom must then be TAKEN BACK by individual sovereign citizens, by force if necessary. Continue reading

Remembering the Politically Inconvenient Malcolm X

XThis year isn’t just the golden anniversary of Selma. It is as well marks the 50th anniversary of the murder of Malcolm X.

Malcolm X has been mythologized. According to the myth, there are, essentially, two Malcolms: the “pre-Mecca” Malcolm and the “post-Mecca” Malcolm X. The former, a national minister for Elijah Muhammad’s Nation of Islam, preached black separatism. The latter, in glaring contrast, rejected the Nation and promoted interracial unity.

That this is revisionism at its best (or worst) is understood by the inconvenient fact that it omits: Continue reading

Capitalism or Communism? The Evil Plans for One World Order

cheleneCapitalism is evil… – well from a communist’s perspective! In light of the recent elections in Greece, the Ferguson-inspired riots in America, and increasing minimum wage discussions, communism has dominated news headlines. Since America’s existence, the country has enjoyed leading the world in economic prosperity.while ranking at the top, or near the top, of the freedom index. The United States has been the beacon of light for millions of immigrants escaping their homeland oppression. So the perplexing question is…why do communists despise ‘capitalism’?

Recently a self-proclaimed communist tweeted me a message asking why I liked the Constitution and Capitalism? I simply tweeted back, “freedom and liberty”. Not satisfied with my reply, he continued to barrage me with a series of tweets in an attempt to ‘change my view’. Unfortunately for his time, he only confirmed my resolve to defend a Free Republic. However I did observe his only argument for collectivism, “workers earn more money and the elite are ‘forced’ to give”. So is his point regarding communist workers earning more money true? First, one must understand that communism is both an economic and ideological system for which all citizens are supposed to be considered equal in most areas including wages. Continue reading

~ Forewords ~
No insult or any offense to any reader who might be put off by the name of this site. I’m past the point of being offended by mild expletives, especially when their use better captures the sense of the utter degradations of society or the establishment and the corrupt deals, like this would be U.S. mercantilist shenanigan of the first degree and the would be robbery of what little legality in trade remains. And you wonder why these TTP trade deals with Europe and Asia are SECRET? Where we need to exert any energy in anger is to ask ourselves and everyone we know, to scream out aloud, what sort of republic do we think we have left, if any and how can we bear to go along with the secrecy of our own demise.

This is well worth your time to brush up on since any TPP trade agreement success will affect you directly and badly. ~ AC

Newly leaked classified documents show that the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, if it goes through as written, will dramatically expand the power of corporations to use closed-door tribunals to challenge­and supersede­domestic laws, including environmental, labor, and public health, and other protections.

The tribunals, made infamous under NAFTA, were exposed in the “Investment Chapter” from the TPP negotiations, which was released to the public by WikiLeaks on Wednesday. Continue reading

Smith: America Demands the Truth

politifact_photos_hillaryemailOrchestrating lawless secrecy, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, prevaricator extraordinaire, broke U.S. law and compromised national security by diverting State Department records to Bill Clinton’s private and unsecured email server and by also exposing classified secrets to enemies of the United States. She didn’t want anyone in the government or the public to see her records, which she knew would contain damning evidence that would derail any successful run for the U.S. Presidency.

Although the Federal Records Act of 1950 makes it clear that all records received and generated by any employee of the federal government belong to the government, Hillary Clinton and her aides decided not to preserve her emails on State Department servers, during her four years as Secretary of State. They also performed their own review of these emails, in order to determine which ones to return and which ones to destroy, turning the law on its head and illegally destroying 33,000 emails.

Calling BS on Harry Reid’s story about his injuries

Yo Adrian - I beat the lil' punk within an inch of his worthless life.

Yo Mick – I beat the lil’ punk within an inch of his worthless life.

It is an emperor has no clothes moment. The partisan mainstream media has failed to show the slightest curiosity about an improbably story peddled by one of the central figures of the last six years of politics. John Hinderaker of Powerline has been asking the questions about Harry Reid’s injuries and retirement from the Senate that a reasonably curious media should have been asking, but hasn’t because Reid is a Democrat.

I noted the injuries that Reid suffered on New Year’s Day, in Las Vegas: multiple broken bones around his right eye, damage to the right eye, severe facial bruising, broken ribs, and a concussion. Was all of this really the result of losing his balance because an elastic exercise band broke? That seems unlikely, to say the least. Continue reading

Smith: Obama’s Bitter Fruit – or Obama’s Dismal Legacy

Obama - Pathological LiarAmerica will point to this juncture in history one day, and it will note that this was the critical moment when the Grand Fool, Barack Obama, and his Court Jester, John Kerry, failed to recognize the greatest threat to America and the world in the 21st century. Ignoring all sound reason and stark warnings from numerous U.S. and world leaders, such as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s March 4th speech before Congress, they are proceeding with a bad agreement that does not prevent the growth and perfection of a broad Iranian nuclear weapons delivery system, and they are paving a path to nuclear weapons for the Revolutionary Guard and a rogue regime and state-sponsor of terrorism.

Ross: What If I Said You Must Own A Gun

militia_ARThe other day I mentioned in one of my articles that Senator Ted Cruz had made the statement that if elected he would try to repeal Obamacare. First of all I was wrong by saying that. What Senator Cruz had said was that he would sign legislation sent to him by Congress which repealed Obamacare. So the Senator was not stating that if elected he would bypass his Constitutional authority as president by unilaterally repealing a law. I just wanted to correct my misunderstanding of what the Senator stated.

See, I will admit when I’m wrong unlike many I know. But I’m not quite done yet.

You see, I overheard a couple people discussing/arguing, the constitutional legality of Obamacare. Guess my article might have got someone thinking after all. Anyhow, this one person was arguing that it is perfectly legal for the government to force someone to purchase health insurance. I didn’t want to say anything right then and there because an idea began to take shape and I wanted to see where it went before I opened my mouth without fully thinking it through.

But here is what I came up with… Continue reading

An Honorable Common Sense Conservative Candidate For President

“Common sense is in spite of, not the result of, education.” ~ Victor Hugo

“Government corruption, overly complex legislation, bureaucratic inefficiency and over-educated academic idiots smother COMMON SENSE.” ~ Ron Ewart

Only men with the strongest resolve can resist and not be corrupted by the influence of importance and position. ~ Thomas Paine, in his book Common Sense, wrote this:

“Men who look upon themselves born to reign, and others to obey, soon grow insolent; selected from the rest of mankind their minds are early poisoned by importance; and the world they act in differs so materially from the world at large, that they have but little opportunity of knowing its true interests, and when they succeed to the government are frequently the most ignorant and unfit of any throughout the dominions.”

EWART plus flagWithout honor in the people and in government, there can be no freedom. Position, perceived importance and the almost assured corruption that results there from, always poisons the well of honor if men are not, by nature, honorable. That brings us to the subject of this article.

In about one second you are going to think that the conservative author who has been writing the articles you have been reading for these last 10 years, has lost his mind. Not hardly! Continue reading

Ross: Are You Nuts?

gun-to-headOn March 18th Mr. Obama, (it still sickens my stomach to use President in the same sentence with his name), floated the idea of making voting mandatory for all citizens, saying it would change the political landscape in America. I’m sure it would. What mandatory voting WOULD do is ensure that there were more idiots voting than there are now, that’s what it would do.

I’m against this idea for many reasons, all of which I will explain. Continue reading

“We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.”

From May of 1787 to the State Ratification Conventions to a monumental debate in the United States Senate in 1833, the 52 words of the Preamble to the US Constitution has been a point of contention as to whether we were intended to have a National or a Constitutional Republic form of government.

DeWeese: The Clinton’s Massive War Chest Disguised As a Charity

AUTHOR’S NOTE: Much is now in the news concerning Hillary Clinton possibly using her position as Secretary of State to help fill the coffers of the Clinton Foundation. Some are charging her actions to be bribes disguised as charitable donations. And then of course, there is Hillary’s outrageous claim that the Clintons were near destitute when they left the White House. The lies of the Clintons seem to know no bounds of shame. As Secretary of State, Hillary got to personally approve very lucrative international speaking engagements for husband Bill. That seemed to help keep them off skid row. The truth is, while the story is only now breaking into the mainstream media, the Clintons have been strong-arming national and international funds for their left wing foundation since Bill exited the White House. A couple of years ago, I wrote the following article to reveal some of their most outrageous funding sources. ~ TAD

AFP E FACES 12 CLINTONS GOVERNMENT USA NYMany Americans believe Bill Clinton has spent his years away from the White House simply enjoying the good life of an ex-president. He gets a full security team; travel expense around the world; a cool presidential library equipped with full living quarters; the best tables at the fanciest eating establishments; huge speaking fees to share his own two cents worth of opinion on any given issue; he gets to show his face on television as an appointed spokesman for the latest disaster relief project; and sometimes even gets to represent the United States at some international meeting.

As They Say In Missouri, We’re a-Fixin To Esplain It To You

lucyWe deal in realities, not wish lists. We don’t pull any punches and never will. We write what many others are afraid to write. We say what others don’t have the courage to say, in a climate of fear that has made “politically correct” a retreat for cowards. In the end, it is up to the reader to determine for him or herself whether we have the best interests of a free America and the individual rights of all Americans, at heart. Each reader of what we write has the option to accept or reject our arguments, premises, or opinions. If the reader is offended by what we write, it is their issue to resolve, not ours. It is their right to make that judgment but it is not up to us to care one way or another. Because, in a free society, it is the fearless expression of ideas, whether benign or controversial, that stirs the pot of free thought and gives it life, as well as advancing the principles of liberty.

So let’s face it ladies and gentlemen. Freedom is a facade, an illusion, a fantasy, a mirage. You have the perception and the presumption of being free in America but the perception is a lie. Freedom means having the freedom to choose and making decisions for your self and those in your charge. Freedom also means taking responsibility for your actions and respecting the rights of others.

Ross: Where Is Our Justice?

ross_unmaskedI know for a lot of people legalize or legal mumbo jumbo is confusing. Believe me, I fully understand because some of it is still confusing to me. But the more I read about it the more I begin to understand it. That being said, some of what I am going to talk about may take repeated readings for you to understand. First, let’s start with some very basics.

Prior to the Constitution being ratified in 1789 we did not have 3 branches of government, there was only the Congress, and they were weak and unable to fully manage the affairs of a young nation. So a group of men got together in Philadelphia and sought to remedy the flaws in the Articles of Confederation. After coming up with this ‘new’ Constitution they had to get the states approval for it to go into effect. Continue reading

Liar, Liar, Pants-suit Afire

Right down on the bed as she hungrily pulled me
on top of her, then took off like a bucking bronco.

Angry White Male and the Horse He Rode In On – Rick Biesada

Will this be the man who finally brings her down?

Will this be the man who finally brings her down?

If a cat has nine lives, I wonder how many lives a bucking bronco has?

The reason why I ask this inquisitive question is because I see that my old heroine, O’l Paint, Hillary Clinton, has gotten herself into another jam, only this time, she may not be able to lie her way out of it.

I marveled at the ease of Hillary’s ability to lie, ever since I heard her telling a fib to her parents where we met at Chicago’s Trip Lounge, where I worked as a bouncer years ago.

She told them that I was going to take her out for breakfast when in fact, we went to a seedy motel instead. Continue reading

Ross: Say What You Will About Me

ross-oathkeeprtatLast Friday at work I mentioned to a friend that I as getting a tattoo this weekend of a Minuteman with the word Oathkeeper above him. My friend jokingly said something like it was sure to reserve me a bunk in a FEMA camp. After I got the tattoo I sent photos of it out to some friends via e-mail and one responded that now I am ‘officially’ a terrorist. While I take these comments seriously, I do find them funny to a certain extent. Allow me to explain why I say that.

I fully realize that, with the current political climate in America, that public displays of patriotism, or at least public displays of the Founding principles, are not widely accepted as being politically correct. Self-reliance, limited government, gun rights, opposition to the war on terror, and a whole host of other beliefs can easily get one labeled as anti-social or a threat to the government. My fears about this were confirmed in 2009 when the Missouri Information Analysis Center issued a report listing Ron Paul supporters, people who display political bumper stickers, equating them with hate groups and potential domestic terrorists. I see this trend increasing as more and more people are becoming unhappy with the direction their government is taking this country because the government fears that the people will one day rise up against it so they have to begin labeling us as potential threats to its very existence.

Just How Are You Going To Reverse Engineer History?

reverse engineeringTime always runs forward. It has no backward component for all practical purposes. What has taken place IS and no matter how we may wish it otherwise, history will record it for all to see. If we have made a mistake, in some cases we can reverse it. In others, reversal is simply impossible and all we can do is pay for the mistake and move on. But what if governments make mistakes? They very rarely pay for it because their money is our money. And they vary rarely apologize for it, because they don’t have to. They just promote the perpetrator, or they appropriate more of our money to pay for the mistake, while we stand in docile anguish at their audacity.

We just learned that your federal government is either wasting or losing $125 Billion in Medicare, Medicaid and another government program ….. EVERY YEAR!

Gaddy: Lessons From the Beginning (Part V)

Authors note: If we were to believe what most of us were taught in the public fool system, we would believe that in May of 1787, a group of very special people who were divinely inspired, met during the hot summer months and with the blessings and guidance of the almighty, created a governing document for the ages. As nice and comfortable a parable as that might be, simply put, the facts do not support the thesis. ~ M.G.

i-smell-a-ratA frequent subject for today is “transparency” in government. Much like the Fountain of Youth or Bigfoot, transparency in government is quite elusive and is arguably just as much a myth. Those who met in Philadelphia in May 1787 certainly did everything within their power to make sure the proceedings there were kept from the prying ears and eyes of the public. The meetings were held on the second floor, the windows were covered and there was a guard placed at the entrance. There was also the solemn promise among the delegates that the particulars of those proceedings would not be made public for fifty years. Continue reading

Ross: Is This Really That Hard To Understand?

head-up-assWere I to write an article about our system of government and style it after the first chapter of the Book of Genesis I might begin by saying, “In the beginning there was man, and man was without government.” All joking aside, when one considers what is the nature of and purpose for government one must consider that age old question, “What came first; the chicken or the egg?” In this particular instance the answer is obvious, man came first. Mankind existed long before government was ever thought of. Therefore if man existed prior to government, so did man’s rights.

That is why that quote from Locke’s Second Treatise is so vitally important to understand, “To understand political power right, and derive it from its original, we must consider, what state all men are naturally in, and that is, a state of perfect freedom to order their actions, and dispose of their possessions and persons, as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of nature, without asking leave, or depending upon the will of any other man.” Continue reading

What If You’re Wrong?

ross-Death_of-the_Republic_smallI know that these commentaries I write may be read by a few people here and there, but for the most part the people who read them are those of like mind and not the folks I was hoping to reach. I’ve yet to hear from anyone who told me that something I had written gave them any sudden insight or changed the way they thought about something. Yet I continue to write them nonetheless because the truth is important and it does not matter if no one reads or heeds it, the truth needs to be told whether people listen or not.

This little missive is going to cover the First Amendment to the Constitution, specifically the religious freedom part of the First Amendment. The First Amendment says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

Before there can be any discussion about the First Amendment’s protection of religious freedom one thing must be made perfectly clear. The First Amendment is not about God or whether or not you believe in Him. The first part of the First Amendment is about your right to worship, or not worship, as you see fit. It has nothing to do with forcing anyone to believe in God. Continue reading

Ross: I Hope You Choke On It

“When exposing a crime is treated as committing a crime you are ruled by criminals.” ~ Anonymous

http://www.dreamstime.com/-image2163724I find it both sad and humorous that a nation that prides itself on telling the truth is so eager to reject it when it is presented to them. I can understand how this comes about, this unwillingness to accept ideas or beliefs that run contradictory to yours, but if you are unwilling to accept the truth, why then do you go loudly about proclaiming that you seek it? Honestly, if you cannot accept the truth when it is presented to you, no matter how uncomfortable it makes you feel, you should just keep your mouths shut about the truth and continue believing the lie you have believed all these years.

Many people blame our educational system on the fact that so many kids grow up today without the slightest understanding of their system of government and the nature and purpose of their rights. Yet I went through that same indoctrination process and for some reason I was willing to accept the truth when I finally discovered it. Am a genetic mutation because the truth matters more to me than a lie? Maybe so, but I am not alone, there are many more like me out here and we are growing very tired of our government, and your continued belief in the lie that it represents the people of this country.

The Great Sovereign Threat To America’s Left

obamaliarIn our recent article, “I Will Comply No More Forever, or Until …..“, we wrote:

“I was born a sovereign. No one owns my body or my soul. Not a person, not a group and certainly not a government or a nation because neither of these are the cause of my existence. My allegiance to that nation is my voluntary choice. Although I am part of a nation, by nature I am a free spirit and that free spirit belongs to me and no one else. The nation of which I am a part does not own me and I only owe that nation what I choose to give freely and of my own volition. I only do so because I believe that nation shares my code.”

Based on a recent report from the DHS, that makes us a right-wing sovereign citizen extremist and that, in the eyes of the DHS, the left and Obama, is an imminent and existential threat to America, even a greater threat than the Islamic terrorist group known as ISIS. Or perhaps ladies and gentlemen, this is just left-wing paranoia. Continue reading
