Call To Action

“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” George Santayana

Having studied history for the greatest portion of my life, I have observed the truth of the above statement. I have seen the cycles and repetitions of history and witnessed, from afar, the repeated failures of the participants in the events. By utilizing the advantage of hindsight, the many recurrences of past lessons become apparent, and guideposts to direct us as we travel the rocky road of creating our own history for those who will look to us in the future. The question then becomes, “what will we do with the lessons of history?”

The problem today in America is the lack of knowledge regarding our history. Over the last one hundred years we have been fed a watered down, sanitized and politically correct version of American History; and it has left us devoid of true appreciation for the awesome treasure we have inherited. For those of us in the Baby Boom generation, it is not quite as bad as it is for those of the X-Generation.  Yet, sadly, even the parents of the Baby Boomers have received only limited knowledge.

The time is NOW for us to learn all we can of the history of this “experiment”, as George Washington called it. Let us consider these words from the Father of our Nation from his first inaugural address on April 30, 1789:

I dwell on this prospect with every satisfaction which an ardent love for my Country can inspire: since there is no truth more thoroughly established, than that there exists in the oeconomy and course of nature, an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness, between duty and advantage, between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy, and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity: Since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained: And since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people. (Emphasis Added)

Will this generation be the one which causes this Heavenly experiment to fail? If we fail, will there ever be another nation like this?

Our time in now. Will you join me in this great and fearful work? I hope so.

    Our voice is our strongest tool. If we fail to speak out; we will be guilty of aiding the enemy. By doing nothing we provide a clear path for our destruction.
    Join in today and proclaim our sovereignty by shouting our God given rights from the roof tops and settle for nothing short of what our forefathers envisioned and our brave men have died to protect!!!
