If Paul Revere rode today, he'd probably warn, "The senate is coming. The senate is coming."



Bipartisan signing cc

Not exactly the signing of the Declaration of Independence here.

In 1765, nine men met together in a Boston tavern, gathering to voice their concern of growing encroachments by their government. These were not big names or the powerful. This group, the original Loyal Nine, included a distiller, a printer, a brass worker, a ship captain. What these people realized is that preserving their liberty took more than complaining around the bar; it took action.


At that time, this stepping forth was a risk to themselves, their livelihoods, even their families. It seems, though, that the risk of not acting must have been even greater. Within a year, their agitations and efforts began to spread, and The Loyal Nine flourished and spread, taking on its new name, famous in history, The Sons of Liberty. Eleven years later, 1776, the fruits of their labor changed the world.


Named after the original Loyal Nine of Pre-Revolutionary history, this community follows the example of the past to stand up and stand together as those who love our country and think it IS exceptional because of documents forged in the fires of sacrifice. Together is the only way to turn back the tide.


James Madison predicted, "If our nation is ever taken over, it will be taken over from within." We are afraid this statement is becoming prophetic.


Our government eavesdrops on its citizens, threatens gun ownership, has passed a bill to make protesting around federal officials a FELONY, and has mandated "event trackers" in all new cars -- just to name a few Constitutional encroachments of the last two years. Our attorney general even says "There are other forms of due process than judicial process." We guess that's what he calls locking up prisoners without lawyers' representation.


We can no longer just HOPE things get better. Thomas Paine said that “those who expect to reap the blessings of liberty must undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” But we, too often, don’t know what to do, don’t even know about their hidden acts, or we just don’t find the time. The founding fathers risked their lives, livelihoods, and families to establish our freedoms. Now it is up to all of us to protect this gift.

Any who act as if freedom's defenses are to be found in suppression and suspicion and fear confess a doctrine that is alien to America.

Uh-oh

And now there are two (er, three?). Did it matter which? After watching the debates, it seems being AGAINST Liberty is now a campaign technique. And the winners are . . . (not the Bill of Rights).

Haven't we been pre-warned about sacrificing freedoms in exchange for security? We must understand that the freedom is inherently ours and not given to us by any man or form of government.
