Ever since the founding of the United States of America, the idea that all men were created equal and free has faced scrutiny from those who prefer to live under cradle-to-grave government control.
In the 1700′s, our founders were considered to be rabble rousers and homeland terrorists by the Tories and other factions who were sworn to the king of England. Our founders realized that the unique concept of establishing freedom and liberty for all would take a lot of work and self sacrifice. Thank God they were willing to do it as they were able to establish the longest standing free Republic that the world has ever known. The only tools that they were able to employ at the time were the power of the pen, the pulpit, and, the printing press. Still, with only three percent of the nation’s population supporting them, and by the grace of God, they were able to win our freedom and independence from the king.
In the 1800′s, our country was literally torn in half due to the issue of slavery. Once the fire of freedom caught on to the slaves who were controlled from cradle to grave, they wanted it too. Unfortunately, a group of southern, slave owning Democrats decided that this concept was unacceptable since it threatened the survival of their plantations; and hence, the Ku Klux Klan was born, further launching us into civil war.
In the 1900′s, we witnessed the most fundamental changes in American society as we faced new threats from fascism and communism, again with the goal of controlling the masses from cradle to grave. Sen. Joe Mc Carthy warned us back in the fifties that Hollywood and institutions of higher learning were being infiltrated with communists; but no one headed his warnings, and they ran him out in disgrace. The sixties were wrought with the assassinations of President Kennedy and Martin Luther King; while at the same time, the race war was being waged in Congress by Democrats to once again limit the rights of the newly freed black man. The sixties communists Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dorhn, with their Weather Underground group, thought it best to just blow things up and overthrow the government; but a better way was found, without the violence. The communists divided; and hence, the Progressive party was re-born. It was an off-shoot of Teddy Roosevelt’s strategy, this time inspired by the Cloward-Piven strategy of forcing so many people onto a government welfare system that it would become unsustainable and eventually collapse. Their plan was to collapse the economy and then take over the government without even firing a shot. In order to protect this strategy, Saul Alinsky published a book titled “Rules for Radicals” as a guide to destroy any detractors of their plans. On a side note, Bill and Hillary Clinton are members of this New Progressive party.
As we move on to the 2000′s, it would appear that the Cloward-Piven strategy is working perfectly, as well as Alinsky’s tactics. The US economy is on the verge of collapse; welfare recipients now outnumber those who are working; our children are being indoctrinated every day in school by communist-leaning teachers and professors; and anyone who stands up for the US Constitution is being labeled as crazy, out of touch, and a homeland terrorist. Our media is now mostly government-controlled, our churches are preaching social justice, and our children barely even know how to write.
The battle for freedom continues just as it did back in the 1700′s. The ideology has remained the same; it is just that the players have changed. This all boils down to a choice: cradle to grave government enslavement, or the absolute Freedom that our founders envisioned. The tools haven’t even changed all that much either. Those who control the power of the pen, the pulpit, and the printing press will control the masses. As always, my fellow Patriots, may God bless you, stay safe, and be aware of your surroundings.
