Keep working on it

It would be an understatement to say that I’ve been busy lately. Between working full time, buying a house, and having family members stay with us, I’ve been up to my eyeballs in documents and errands during all my usual down time. I’ve not really had any time to write a blog in at least a month.

I have however been paying attention to national politics though, and I must say I am extremely glad to see how conservatives are starting to stand with Rand. As many of you know, I am a big Ron Paul supporter, and to see his son deliver similar messages in a more palpable manner, is a great step toward restoring the constitution and the backbone of this country.

Rand Paul

People are becoming bolder, I see people openly and proudly claiming themselves to be gun owners, capitalists, and supporters of the constitution, no matter what the federal government decrees. It is truly inspiring to see this in the aftermath of the general election, where it looked like all was lost. I knew at the time that if we all just dug in, that things would get better, no matter how hard the winds of socialism blew against us. Within weeks the president and his cronies overreached with gun control legislation, and the free people of this nation very loudly and very clearly told him to go screw himself, and that the government could only take our guns when they pry them from our cold dead hands. For a week or two I seriously thought we might end up in a civil war.

Luckily for us, we do now have at least one senator who will stand for freedom, who will stand up against the establishment, and the march toward totalitarianism. A man who will stand for hours at a time if necessary to make the voices of the republic heard. The Tea Party is coming back with a vengeance and 2014 is truly RINO hunting season. Its time to dust off the party of Reagan, clear out the Bushes, the McCain’s and the Grahams, and truly become the party of limited government and the constitution again.

Everything starts at the local level, get involved with your local Tea Party, and throw out the collectivists. Be proud to be a capitalist and a supporter of the Constitution.

As for me, I’m working hard right now, and I’m cooking up something really special. So stay tuned, and may the constitution be with you!

The Truth – by Brandon Raub

After doing more research on Brandon Raub, I find myself agreeing with him on much of what he says. This is a post he made on his Facebook on November 11th 2011:

The Truth
by Brandon J Raub on Friday, November 11, 2011 at 10:00 am

America has lost itself. We have lost who we truly are. This is the land of the free and the home of the brave.

This is the land of Thomas Jefferson.

This is the land of Benjamin Franklin.

This is the land of Fredrick Douglas.

This is the land of Smedley Butler.

This is the land John F. Kennedy.

This is the land of Martin Luther King.

This is the land where the cowboy wins. This is the land where you can start from the bottom and get to the top. This is the land where regardless of you race and ethnicity you can succeed and build a better life for you and your family. This is the land where every race coexists peacefully. This is the land where justice wins. This is the land where liberty dwells. This is the land where freedom reigns. This is the land where we help the poor, and people help each other. This is land where people beat racism.

The Federal Reserve is wrong. They have designed a system based off of greed and fear. They designed a system to crush the middle class between taxes and inflation. This is wrong, and it is unjust. It is wrong.

We have allowed ourselves to be deceived and seduced by the powers of the printing press. It is not a good system. It discourages saving: the foundation for all stable economic activity. The Federal Reserve is artificially manipulating interest rates and creating phony economic data.

This thing has deceived our entire nation.

They created it in 1913. They also created the income tax in 1913. They encouraged the growth of debt so they can tax you on it. There is interest on the debt. Your government is in bed with these people. They want to enslave you to the government so that they can control every aspect of your lives. It is an empire based on lies. They operate of greed and fear.

There is a better way. It’s called freedom. Freedom is called a lot of things. But there is a true meaning. It means very simply that you have the right to do whatever you want as long as you are not infringing on the freedoms of other people.

I firmly believe that God set America apart from the other nations of the world. He saved a place where people could come to to escape bad systems of goverment. This system we have created works. It really works.

There is evil going on all around the world. The United States was meant to lead the charge against injustice, but through our example not our force. People do not respond to having liberty and freedom forced on them.

Men and Women follow courage. They follow leadership, and courage. Our example has paved the way for people all around the world to change their forms of government.

Force is not the way because liberty is a powerful concept. The idea that men can govern themselves is the basis for every just form of government.

We can govern ourselves. We do not need to be governed by men who want to install a one world banking system. These men have machine hearts. Machine and unnatural hearts.

They have blocked out the possibility of a better world. They fear human progress. They have monopolies on everything.

This life can be free and beautiful. There are enough resources on this earth to support the world’s population. There are enough resources on this earth to feed everyone. There is enough land for everyone to own their own land and farm, and produce their own energy.

These people have been hiding technology. There are ways to create power easily. There is technology that can provide free cheap power for everyone. There are farming techniques that can feed the entire world.

The Bill of Rights is being systematically dismantled. Men have spilled their blood for those rights.

Your sons and daughters, your brothers and sisters, and Americas best young men and women are losing their limbs. They are losing their lives. They are losing the hearts. They do not know why they are fighting. They are killing. And they do not know why.

They have done some extraordinary acts. Their deeds go before them. But these wars are lies. They are lies. They deceived our entire nation with terrorism. They have gotten us to hand them our rights. Our Rights! Men died for those rights!

September Eleventh was an inside job. They blew up a third building in broad daylight. Building 7.

Your leaders betrayed you.

You elected an aristocracy. They are beholden to special interests. They were brainwashed through the Council on Foreign Relations. Your leaders are planning to merge the United States into a one world banking system. They want to put computer chips in you.

These men have evil hearts. They have tricked you into supporting corporate fascism. We gave them the keys to our country. We were not vigilant with our republic.

There is hope. BUT WE MUST TAKE OUR REPUBLIC BACK!

Brandon’s Facebook page in many ways looks like mine. I post many articles, quotes and pictures on a daily bases. The difference is that I don’t say anything that would lead people to think I’m inciting violence. Some of his comments could be misconstrued that way.

I wonder if he knew that if he posted enough, he would be picked up? He doesn’t seem like a dangerous person to me, but perhaps ‘the authorities’ thought he might be another James Holmes, and go on a rampage.

The things that Brandon was posting on his facebook page make a lot of sense to those of us who have become aware of the corrupt system that works behind the scenes. Our republic really is under threat from multiple groups right now.

“I feel like I am standing at a great crossroads. As if a storm of destiny is about to pick me up and take me to fight a great battle. A battle I could have never imagined existed” – Brandon Raub

If he chose to make a scene of himself on facebook to get picked up and expose the tyranny that has gripped our nation, then I say more power to him. Non-violence is a far stronger weapon than some idiot going on a killing rampage. I think the heros like Brandon have seen enough bloodshed from our fruitless and unconstitutional wars in the middle east.

“Sharpen up my axe; I’m here to sever heads.” – Brandon Raub, August 13th 2012

I believe his ‘sever heads’ comment is only a metaphor, as you can certainly sever other peoples arguments when you sharpen your blade on the grindstone of truth.

Whatever Brandon’s intent on Facebook, whether he, like myself is just out there to expose the truth, or whether he was just venting, or imploring others to do their own research and join him in the argument for liberty. Then I say he is a hero for exposing the system for what it is.

“The Revolution will come for me. Men will be at my door soon to pick me up to lead it. ;)” – Brandon Raub, August 14th 2012

Let’s keep up the pressure and expose what’s happening to him, so that no-one else is picked up and detained.

Here are further news stories which are finally starting to surface about him:

http://wtvr.com/2012/08/21/full-text-brandon-raubs-proclamation-take-our-republic-back/

It is up to us as individuals and citizen journalists; to put the pressure on the mainstream media and get events like this covered. Without us, patriots like Brandon will be left to rot in a cell somewhere under a once free republic.

“Friends,

You deserve to kow the truth. There has been an overwhelming amount of evil enacted and planned against you, your children, and your countrymen. It is great in scope. Your government evil. It is as simple as that. 

And the calvary is coming.”

– Brandon Raub, August 12th 2012

Yes Brandon, the cavalry is coming; there are many people like you out there, and our ranks are swelling every day. We need not have bloodshed again on our soil, but we will take the country back.

Let’s turn the corrupt system on it’s head, and free Brandon Raub!

Americans have forgotten freedom

My wife and I started out with nothing but each other. Not only did we come from different countries, but we were not given everything we wanted as teenagers. Neither my parents nor hers gave us tuition for university. Both of us are very intelligent, and we have put our minds to good use. We both work full time and run a company together.

Earlier today my wife was working at her store where she is an assistant manager. She and one of the associates got in a conversation and the guy said that “the government should just give everyone a million dollars.” To which my wife replied “where do you think the government gets that money?” The guy did not know, and my wife told him that the money is taken from you and I, from all of us, and redistributed after the government employees have taken their considerable cut. So really our wealth is diminished every time we are taxed more and more money is spent. I could expand her point further by saying that the more money is printed out of thin air and handed out to everyone, the more value it loses, and no mater how much more money you pump into the system, all you’ll do is saturate the market and there will be no value and no use for the money, just like in the Weimar Republic in post WWI Germany.

Back to my wife and I. Now we could have gone to college with or without financial support from both sets of parents. In fact, we actually looked at attending an American college shortly after we got married. The biggest reason we decided not to attend was financial. Neither of us can justify going 100’s of thousands of dollars into debt for a ‘quality’ American education. Recently I met up with one of my old friends in London when we went to visit. He graduated from Cambridge and told us that he only paid 3000 pounds a year ($5000) for his tuition. Now I’m sorry, but only Yale and Harvard can compare to the likes of Cambridge or Oxford. Most American colleges now run in the $10’s of thousands a year now, and the quality certainly isn’t there. American colleges have been saturated by government backed student loans, and you can now get a bachelors degree in almost everything including hairdressing. I’m sorry, but unless it holds a true quality of the mind in what you have studied, it’s not worth the paper its printed on. There are plenty of good community colleges for craftsmanship, and I have always favored apprenticeships over ‘shop-class’.

America has not only lost its sense of value, but many of its citizens do not even know what it means to be free. They do not know how to simply say ‘no’.

The American empire has expanded so far that people now allow themselves to be patted down at airports, stopped at ‘sobriety’ checkpoints (Nazi-lite anyone?) and stripped of almost all their constitutional rights on a daily bases. They openly believe almost everything they hear on TV, including the heavily biased propaganda machine that is American News channels. Americans are so afraid of losing their jobs, so inclined to ‘work hard’ and pay off their debts. Debts which are incurred under the corrupt banking and government cartel known as the Federal Reserve, money which is stolen from the people through taxation and then lent back out to the people in paper money at interest.

The problems with America run so deep, that the nation is deeply divided. It is not simply a case of left vs right either. Many conservatives, though perhaps more open minded to the idea of the constitution and limited government, still believe in many big government programs. Programs such as the overly expanded and stretched out military, restoring the draft (involuntary servitude anyone?) in the name of honor and sacrifice. They believe that a progressive such as Mitt Romney will save the day against the dreaded Obama, and yet forget that they both stand for the same unlimited government.

There are many wars going on right now in the Middle East, and this country is stretched thin in many areas, from the economy, to the military. Right now our battlefield is a philosophical one.

Where does the government get its money from? All of it is stolen from you. Government is supposed to be our servant. It is supposed to serve us in basic areas only to maintain limited law and order.

Ask yourself these questions:

Where does the government get its money from?

Is my purpose in life to make the most out of it for myself and my family, or be a slave to a collective?

Am I supposed to serve the government, or myself?

Am I not by serving myself, and protecting myself, really protecting others too?

Or

Am I supposed to listen to what others tell me to do, and please the collective driven by leaders in the shadows?

Watch the movie ‘The Matrix’ and realize how it reflects on our current society. I took the ‘red pill’ a long time ago, and the rabbit hole is a long way down. Question is, are you ready to take it too? Or just take the blue pill, turn the news channel on tv back on and fall asleep?

Americans have forgotten freedom, because as I watched the fireworks going off on July 4th this year, I couldn’t understand what they were celebrating any more. Will all the intrusions of government in our everyday affairs, what freedom is really left? What I see around me right now mirrors that of the British oppression of the 1700’s, or that of Nazi Germany of the 1930’s.

Are you ready to wake up and declare true independence? Or have you forgotten too?

Documents to live by

Throughout history, civilizations have risen and fallen. Many people have lived in slavery, and few in freedom. Even in the modern world, many live under a totalitarian regime, and many under the oppression of communism and dictatorships.

In 1215 a group of Englishmen banded together and created the magna carta, a charter of common laws which provides for the basic rights of man.

Magna Carta is an English charter, originally issued in the year 1215 and reissued later in the 13th century in modified versions. The later versions excluded the most direct challenges to the monarch’s authority that had been present in the 1215 charter. The charter first passed into law in 1225; the 1297 version, with the long title (originally in Latin) The Great Charter of the Liberties of England, and of the Liberties of the Forest, still remains on the statute books of England and Wales.

The 1215 charter required King John of England to proclaim certain liberties, and accept that his will was not arbitrary, for example by explicitly accepting that no “freeman” (in the sense of non-serf) could be punished except through the law of the land, a right which is still in existence today.

The United States of America

When Englishmen left their homeland for the new world, they brought with them charters establishing the colonies. The Massachusetts Bay Company charter for example stated the colonists would “have and enjoy all liberties and immunities of free and natural subjects.” The Virginia Charter of 1606 (which was largely drafted by Sir Edward Coke) stated the colonists would have all “liberties, franchises and immunities” as if they had been born in England. The Massachusetts Body of Liberties contained similarities to clause 29 of the Magna Carta, and the Massachusetts General Court in drawing it up viewed Magna Carta as the chief embodiment of English common law.[73] The other colonies would follow their example.

The settlers of the origional 13 colonies lived by the comman laws of England, and when they began to feel oppressed by the monarchy of England, they decided to seperate from the motherland, and create a new country.

United States Declaration of Independence

The Declaration of Independence was a statement adopted by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, which announced that the thirteen American colonies then at war with Great Britain regarded themselves as independent states, and no longer a part of the British Empire. John Adams put forth a resolution earlier in the year which made a formal declaration inevitable. A committee was assembled to draft the formal declaration, which was to be ready when congress voted on independence. Adams persuaded the committee to select Thomas Jefferson to compose the original draft of the document,[2] which congress would edit to produce the final version. The Declaration was ultimately a formal explanation of why Congress had voted on July 2 to declare independence from Great Britain, more than a year after the outbreak of the American Revolutionary War.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

After the war of independence, the Constitution and bill of rights were written.

These documents have provided the gateway for the most free country in the history of the world.

This document must be protected to ensure the freedom of man.

Ronald Reagan once said that America is the last shining beacon of hope in the world. I believe this to be true, no matter how dark the days may be becoming.

Long live Liberty and the freedom of mankind!
