    » Homeland Security Report Lists ‘Liberty Lovers’ As Terrorists Alex Jones' Infowars: There's a war on for your mind!

    - Americans who believe their “way of life” is under attack; Check

    - Americans who are “fiercely nationalistic (as opposed to universal and international in orientation)”; Maybe

    - People who consider themselves “anti-global” (presumably those who are wary of the loss of American sovereignty); Maybe

    - Americans who are “suspicious of centralized federal authority”; Check x9000

    - Americans who are “reverent of individual liberty”; Check x9000

    - People who “believe in conspiracy theories that involve grave threat to national sovereignty and/or personal liberty.” Maybe

    While I am a constant listener to brother Jones, today my mind is set back in time 236 years to reflect on why we are here and have the life we have today, and to recharge my American Spirit.

    There is no room for modern troubles today. Only to reflect on the bravery and amazing things that our forefathers did to gift us this great nation.

    "When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny." Thomas Jefferson

    "We are Days Away From Fundamentally Transforming The United States of America" Barack Obama

    This document shows what President Obama meant by that transformation.

    Does the government work for us, or do we work for the government?

    I prefer Jefferson's love of liberty to Obama's love of power although to be fair this transformation has been going on since the nations founding, Obama just put it on steroids.

    Happy Independence Day to all!!!

    36 years ago (1976) I was a Marine Corps Sergeant recently attached to a small reserve training depot in Massachusetts. Upon first arriving in MA, it seemed that everywhere were signs warning about the new MA gun law..mandatory 1 year in jail for an unlicensed firearm. I got tagged for color guard duty a couple of times for bi-centennial parades there. The irony of celebrating "freedom" in a state that would jail me for carrying the rifle I had in the parade as well as those stored with my folks back home was not lost on me. In light of the SCOTUS decision ending the concept of limited government, to me it looks like the process is pretty much complete. Not much to celebrate today*. More like a funeral.

    *on a national level. Much to be thankful for personally.
