Become a Son or Daughter of Liberty first in your heart and then by your voice!

Are there any Sons of Liberty left?

Samuel Adams was among the first to consider himself a Son of Liberty. These were early Americans who were gathering and expressing themselves in town meetings and in Taverns, protesting the treatment they were receiving at the hands of the Crown. The Americans were experiencing ill treatment from their Governors and other appointed leaders. Not everyone was a patriot. There were many Tories, or those loyal to England and the Crown.

And then, like now, there were many who sat on the fence. These were people who did not like the way things were but did not want to 'rock the boat'. Enter patriots who started organizing across New England and into the surrounding colonies. They became the voice of the silent majority who would be silent no longer.

Samuel Adams was the first, but many early patriot leaders followed his lead. Joseph Warren became an outspoken leader as well as Patrick Henry, John Hancock and Paul Revere. These men as well as many others were the leaders who organized…

Sworn Oath?

So, today we have a new President. President Obama was sworn in as President of the United States of America. So what did he actually swear to do? Lets check:

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."

So I wonder if Obama will really preserve, protect and defend the constitution. Does he even know what is in the constitution of the United States? Over the next few posts I will post sections of Our U.S. Constitution and then we will let his actions speak for themselves.

Preamble:
We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Innauguration Fun Facts

During President Bush's last Innaugural celebration he was assailed for the exhorbiant amount of money spent on the gala's and additional security.

Now, the money spent on the Balls and the other events are funded by private monies. That did not stop the critics of President Bush who said his supporters should spend that money somewhere else. They stated there were more pressing issues in the world that could use the money.

The Facts:

Bush's supporters spen over 40 million dollars on innauguration week.

For Bush's innauguration, 10,000 additional security forces (FBI i.e.) were used in Washington.

Obama's supporters are spending over 200 million dollars on innauguration week.

For Obama's innauguration, 50,000 additional security forces are being used in Washington

So, This was just to set the record Straight!

Thank you Mr. President

President Bush has commuted the prison sentences of former Border Patrol Agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean!

I have to admit that I was more than a little worried that President Bush was not going to do the right thing. I actually did a fist pump driving down the highway when I heard the news.

Watch a you tube video:

The news:

Bush finally commutes sentences of Ramos and Compean
With less than 24 hours left in his presidency, George W. Bush at last granted clemency to two former Border Patrol agents, Jose Compean and Ignacio Ramos. The two had received lengthy prison sentences after being convicted of shooting a fleeing Mexican drug dealer.Clemency for the two former agents was a major goal of USBC and attracted considerable support among all advocates of tougher border security, who had repeatedly argued that the agents were just doing their jobs. A large number of senators and representatives, both Republicans and Democrats, had supported cl…

Who is John Galt?

If you asked me one novel that ALL high school students should read it would be Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. I have not posted for awhile due to the fact that my wife gave me this book as a Christmas gift. During the few moments of free time I ended up with I picked up the book rather than turning on the lap-top.
It is an enlightening book full of real world philosophy based on the premise that ones moral obligations are to himself and to his own mind. Too often we all get carried away in the notion that it is okay to take from those who produce for the sake of those who do not. How is this way of thinking tolerated? Because we throw emotion into the argument and allow ourselves to feel obligated. And what do we get? One example: For the good of the country My government takes my tax money and gives it to a company that pays it employees over twice what I get paid for less work. And this does not include the additional benefits. Why? Because it is crucial for the Government …
