I am an avid admirer of Thomas Jefferson, whom I believe to be the greatest President in the history of our nation. Sometimes I think "if he could see that, he'd roll over in his grave" while at other times I feel like he would be incredibly proud of our country and all that we've done in the last 230+ years.

Freedom of Speech

0

Posted on by

I was a college student during the Vietnam War and served as a monitor at more than one march of protesters during those years. Of thousands of students who participated never once did I see anyone show up with their face covered, nor did anyone throw rocks through windows or attack anyone else. The whole point in marching for PEACE is to do it PEACEFULLY!

The First Amendment guarantees freedom of speech, not the freedom to commit violence, damage property, or prevent others from exercising their own freedom to express their opinions.  To allow those such as Antifa to intimidate those who they don’t approve of is just the same as those who helped Hitler rise to power.  For government or campus “leaders” to cave in to the demands of those who wish to deny freedom of speech or freedom of assembly to others is a clear abandonment of their respo nsibility to their citizens and students.

Once we allow limits to be placed on freedom, we have begun our walk down the path to no freedom at all!

Freedom, Liberty, and Independence: Under Fire!

0

Posted on by

The love of freedom, liberty, and independence are three of the primary principles that inspired our Founding Fathers to break away from Britain and establish these United States of America. Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, John Adams and many more, after enduring years of oppressive rule by King George III, banded together in a courageous battle against the overwhelming forces of one of the most powerful nations on earth.  They risked everything to create this Republic for themselves and their posterity.

Now, more than ever before in the history of the United States, our freedom is terribly threatened.  America is under attack by those chief goal is to accelerate the ever expanding size and power of the federal government.  Flying in the face of our Constitution, ignoring the specific limitations on government power guaranteed to us by that Constitution, these usurpers seek to replace our cherished Republic with some fallen remnant that will bear little resemblance to that which we hold dear.

We, as American patriots, must reach out to one another, must unite to find and support men and women of courage to help all of us bring an end to this assault on our freedom. We must band together to cast from office those who would destroy the long sacred traditions of independence and liberty that were so fundamental to the creation of these United States, and by so doing secure for ourselves and our posterity the endurance of the greatest nation ever to exist on the face of our planet.
