A Quick Rundown of How I See Things

“The quest for LIBERTY resides within the core DNA of certain folks. You either have it or you don’t! It will never appear on a ballot!” ~Michael Gaddy~

Thomas Paine once wrote, “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigues of supporting it.”
Our Founding Fathers, at least those who participated in America gaining its independence from England, understood what freedom was, and they were willing to pay the price required to obtain it.

Patriotism, at least according to the Neal Ross Standard Dictionary of Political Terminology, does not mean supporting your government all the time; or when your party is in control of it. No, patriotism is defined as standing for the principles that government was originally founded upon, and having the courage to oppose that government when it seeks to undermine those principles.

These men were patriots when they stood up to the tyranny of King George III…

These men were patriots when they risked their lives to defend the principles enshrined in the Declaration of Independence…

The Confederacy consisted of patriots who resisted the authority of a government they felt had devolved from one whose purpose was to defend liberty to one who sought to deny it to them…

What makes YOU a patriot? This???

Well, I have news for you…
