A Once Great Nation

A lawless government breeds a lawless public.

I don't know when the apple turns, it has for me already. I feel bound by no laws the federal government has passed through its sham of a legislature. I regard them as laws passed in commission of a fraud. To whatever extent I obey a federal law it is within my understanding of rightful liberty.

Civility is not a legal thing, it is a social thing. One might pass all the hate-speech laws they wish, it does not change the heart wherein lies the hate. The speech one uses is a reflection of the inner self and to pass laws against speech is to pass laws against emotion, against expression, against the privacy of one's skull.

To pass laws against possession of guns will not stop violence, it will not stop possession, it will only escalate the encounter between police and otherwise law-abiding citizens. It will indeed make outlaws of those who possess guns.

These laws are laws passed by a government estranged from the people; a government peering down at the masses concerned mostly with control of those masses, not working in conjunction with the people to find that elusive, necessary balance between liberty and security.

These laws show a disrespect for the people; a contempt for them and rightfully so. The people have lacked any significant education over the past several decades where social engineering has replaced the purpose of educators and indoctrination the purpose of the schools. Why should the government view the people as capable of anything other than following orders?

But for the rebels.

There are those who recall a once great nation. One in which the government feared abridging liberty for the backlash it would cause. There has been an unhealthy lack of fear in these recent decades.

Whenever the collectivists wish to abolish certain rights they claim that the founders could not have conceived of a society wherein there were cars, or school shootings, etc. What they never address is that the founders could not have conceived of a nation of children afraid to arise against the power of the government, fearful of the methods of oppression the government has developed. They could not have conceived of citizens fearful of speaking out, fearful of the IRS, fearful of rogue agencies denying rights as if they were mere suggestions.

It is time to start taking our rights seriously. It is past time. We risk the destruction of all rights if we do not fight back now. There is no future time when it will be "okay" to fight back against this Goliath.

I confess I am losing interest in this blog. I know there are a number of people who consider these words, these points of view valuable and I thank them for that, but really, it is useless.

It is time to respect the laws of this nation with the same regard the government officials have for the Constitution. It is time to honor this society with the reverence those in public service have for their oaths of office.

This is not America.

Whatever patriotism one feels for the United States is misplaced. To fight for America is to fight against those who have entered office under false testimony; those who have sworn to defend something they seek to destroy. There is no talk of going back to the Constitution, only to alter it through judicial ruling and illegal laws.

There is talk of imprisoning citizens for having committed no act. The mere possession of something previously legal is illegal and failure to relinquish it is a crime. This is not America. This is not liberty. This is not justice. There is not one single thing the government has done since the passage of the Patriot Act that is legal, that is right, that is American.

We have been overthrown, a quiet coup, but a coup nonetheless.

We must become counter-revolutionaries and the struggle must begin immediately. We must identify with the counter-revolution and take what comes.

Our nation is sick. It will not heal itself. Standing aside as a concerned relative will not heal the wounds inflicted by the aggressor. It is time to reach our hands into the gore and work to save the nation so many of our troops have died to protect.

That, or turn away, throw up your hands and give it to them freely.

This may be my last post. Anything else I might write will only be fodder for the Goliath.

  1. I can relate.

    We can only talk so much, then it's time to shut up and prepare. Others still have things to say that are helpful, and I believe you still have a lot in you, but as for me, once my wife was hit with her stroke, I had to concentrate on what's here. I watch, read, listen, and prepare. I make my voice heard, but as for the blog, it's pretty much done.

    Buggin' in.

  2. I thought it was just me.
    I look forward to reading your views as do so many others. I have indeed awoken many sleepy Americans by sending links to your posts, so they are not in vain.
    Consider this...

    All men are tragic. Evil is universal. But there is nobility in tragedy. Man is mysteriously cursed. But he rises above his tragedy, and the curse, because he has the courage to oppose evil. The most terrible temptation we have is to leave the fight. For that, God will not forgive us.
    Marcus Tullius Cicero

    1. Sir, I like the quote, but if you think TL intends to leave the fight you have misunderstood him. I take it that he feels he has spent enough time and energy on the blog, and is ready to move forward on to something much more in the trenches. He intends to be a soldier, and a leader of one.

      Whatever you do TL, it is long past due.

    2. This is currently where the fight is and it helps immensely in the awakening of others, so when the physical fight erupts, that 3% will be more like 30%. There is no leaving this fight once you have awakened to the abuses. There is only increasing the intensity.

    3. As Mike suggested, it is not my intent to quit the fight. If I do quit posting it will only be to focus on issues best not discussed here.

  4. Loud and clear TL! The insight shared here has served its purpose. If the light has not reached men of liberty , it will never. It is not to say your or our fight is over but only just begun.
    America, shamefully is no more. The will of some remains for our soul is committed eternally in the sacrifice of men before us. For those who prefer living for freedoms sake let us surge forth now. There is no saving grace at the polls.

  6. "...That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."

    AS TO THEM shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. THEIR Safety and Happiness.

    Boston T. Party gave a helluva speech at last years Porcfest. He distinguished between the Founding Fathers of the Revolution and the "Founding Lawyers" of the Constitution. It explains a lot. It's available on the web.

    None of this is rocket science. "I own myself," and either those with whom I interact are going to respect that, or they're not. If they don't, then either I stop them or I die. If they do, then I honor their ownership of themselves, likewise as they honor mine.

    Not very often, but sometime things get so messed up that there's nothing to do but start over. Forward.

  9. My two cents before bed... it is important for both sides to understand that this has to be solved diplomatically. I am a veteran and certainly not one to run from a fight, but this is a fight that can not be won with violence. If there is one thing America does not need, it's another "hot" civil war. Weapons have evolved, and I don't care what gun(s) you have, you do not stand a chance against the Federal government, you are lying to yourself. They have better guns, better armor, better communication, better logistical support, better equipped soldiers, e better equipment, satellites, air support, drones, shall I continue? Everyone needs to get the idea of an uprising out of their heads, you would be surely swatted away like a fly.

    And as a personal note: all of you dropping subtle hints about "defending yourself" with your "guns" against federal aggression, I remind you that the same people you would be "defending yourself" from, would most likely be someone who already put their life on the line for you and your freedoms already, unless the recent wars have already been forgotten, which wouldn't surprise me.

    1. Hey Brian, why the scare quotes? Are you suggesting that defending oneself isn't defending oneself, or that guns aren't guns? I don't get it; can you clarify? TIA.

    2. The last time Americans fought a war to defend American freedom was WWII. Some arguments can be made for the Korean war and some for the communist in Vietnam . But the wars in the middle east have stripped freedoms from Americans not secured any. Open your eyes man. The elite get rich from those wars while misled men and woman die for an unjust cause.

      The only real threat Americans face is from the traitors within our borders and our own complacency.

    3. WTF Jones, diplomatic? Diplomatically with whom?

      God help you Jones if you truly believe what you wrote. Nobody feels it won't be messy. Son if that is your picture next to your comment, you are a lot younger than me and all I hear in your words is defeat. The Vets you refer of, fought a globalist, profiteering, sacrifice of well meaning good boys. It is obvious that you haven't awakened to that fact. No disrespect intended.

    4. I disagree that we "wouldn't stand a chance." I am not naive enough to believe that all of the military would be on our side, but I do believe a significant percentage would be. Enough to give us a chance.

      I do agree though that fighting is not the answer. Violence only begets more violence. The states need to reclaim their sovereignty through secession. Texas seems well positioned to make this happen, as well as any other southern states seeking independence alongside us.

      Yes, Texas isn't exactly perfect either. Secession wouldn't solve every problem. But it would solve a great many of them. A smaller government, that is closer to the people, has many more benefits than one might think.

      And yes, secession might provoke another war of Northern Aggression. Or it might not. Either way, secession is our only chance at peace. If we do not secede -- and soon -- the only recourse left for the people of this country will be violent revolution.

      I prefer peace, as you do, but one is not always presented that option.

    5. Brian,

      You took an oath. It did not come with an expiration date or a guarantee that you wouldn't be struck down while upholding it.

      A quote for you:


      "If ye love wealth better than liberty,
      the tranquility of servitude
      better than the animating contest of freedom,
      go home from us in peace.
      We ask not your counsels or your arms.
      Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you.
      May your chains set lightly upon you,
      and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
      -- Samuel Adams

  10. Some change from your 2 cents Brian. Why would all those soldiers that have put their life on the line defending "us" choose to fight "us" at thee direction of the Federal Government that has made no secret of destroying the Constitution rather than defending it. Did you take the oath? Do you understand what it means?

  12. Well, I'm on their list anyhow, so I might as well come out and say it: it's time for the shooting to start. It's time for the people accosted by these unconstitutional and evil laws to start shooting back. It's the only way things will change.

    I will miss reading your insights, TL. I hope you will write a History of the Restoration War when it is all over.

  13. Dear TL,
    Regardless of the path you take, don't loose faith in something greater than ourselves.
    Remember, the elites, their rule of oligarchy have nothing on us and of Liberty.
    Sure it is disenchanting to a high degree the scope of their madness, how psychopathic they and their culture of wonton corruption and greed. None of that changes or diminishes the primal nature of our sovereign being, no if anything, it elevates Liberty, lifts our unalienable freedom like nothing else can.

    I find it a challenge to retain perspective of the larger picture, but as time goes on, not so difficult, for it is folks such as yourself who have risen to the challenge of the times that come to us, who give me the wisdom to not loose the forest for the trees. The truth of things.

    The old axiom of KISS, (keep it simple stupid), applies in spades with Liberty. Keep it simple, keep the eye on the prize, keep the faith, believe in something larger, better than myself, the 5000 year leap our founders created.

    Tyranny is it's own worst enemy. The ruling class is completely out of control, they are savages, the worst humanity has to offer, truly stupid, so stupid they do not even see it.
    They are the barbarians at the gates.

    TL, never ever underestimate the enlightening empowerment of the truth. Liberty requires it, freedom thrives upon it, the truth guarantees prosperity and happiness, self determination, the idea's and ideals of Liberty never perish.

    Give a man the simple idea Liberty exists and you free that man, teach a man to believe in Liberty and all it stands for and you free a people.

    None of us can do this alone, it will take all of us together for restoration of Liberty and a republic of free people, whether it is redress or right of revolution, it matters not. It is an army of free men, armed not with only arms, but with the fire of our inherent Liberty, that is required.

    And it is the spark of the idea Liberty is something that neither needs nor requires permission. That it is not the 2nd Amendment, but our natural born God given right to defense to be free always without equivocation from tyranny and those who foist it upon us.

    It goes far past the right to be free, but that we ARE free. By nature of being born. That it has to be taught that not only is this possible, but that of all the things in our mortal lives, that this exists. It is the Gospel of Liberty. It is the fulcrum of Liberty.

    This is where the battle must be fought.
    It is this thing where victory is assured.

    The word of Liberty.

    People listen to you TL.
    More every day.
    Because...when people are shown the truth, they know it.

  14. TL,

    I understand your position, I too am done preaching to the choir.

    You have my number and email. If you decide to go "kinetic" before Kings Mountain give me a holler and I will be by your side, otherwise I'm looking forward to meeting you in person there.

  17. I Live in Michigan on the Candian border, I sell boats for a Living. I was at the Boat show a few weeks ago and had one of these types of conversations with several of my boat reps. EVERYONE knows something is coming....they ALL said what can we do? I said speak up tell EVERYONE that will listen until the time for talk is "over".... all I got was stunned looks, they know something is coming.

    BUT you could just see them thinking I want to go back to sleep, and just not know these things"

    the main subject of that conversation started over the Discovery channel documentary called: Under Seige-Americas norther boerder.

    My bussiness/customers are all on the Detroit river, Lake Erie, and thesea are all on the Canadin border.

    Homeland Security, Border patrol, border protection, Coast guard, Local law enforcement all patrol this area....THEY staop and Search people all the time and Multiple times per day...IT IS KILLING BOATING and my lively hood.

    If you have not seen this documentary you need to see how your MONEY and FREEDOM is being wasted...

      again please dont give up your blog and writing, you ARE affecting change in the right direction.

      we all know we are close to the end of words, but we have to speak up until the Muzzle comes with the Jack Boot!

      Words can be VERY inspirational, just look to the words of our founders, Im sure they felt the same way as you, me and many others feel now...

  20. At times I feel like I am living in the 'Matrix': everything looks the same, sounds the same and people act the same on a daily basis but, there is a sense that everything is not the same. We (with your [TL] insights) in our location of like minded individuals have built an small following, well stocked deep and ready to encouter what is coming. Reading this site (and others like it) help to acknowledge that the 'not the same' is real and there are other like minded people out there who are ready to stand and fight when the time comes.
    Mr. TL, I hope you do well, keep the faith and continue to write from time to time: your insights and thoughts have made more impact that you can ever imagine. Thank you.

  21. Brian Jones. There is no one to diplomatically solve this situation with. This has been in the planning for many, many years and they have no intention of allowing anything to change. In fact, for them, it must continue on. Nothing but tenuous compromise has ever been settled diplomatically, anyway. The peace never lasts. The only true rebellions have been brutally violent (certainly not as a preference, but as a fact) and totally necessary to usurp evil. Reason is not contagious. You can't reason with an unreasonable person. I also know that, when the shooting starts, if you are within a hundred miles of me, I will eliminate you.
