If I were the enemy, I would want you to feel alone. I would want you to be overwhelmed. I would want you to become hop…eless. It’s the natural law of predator vs. prey. Isolate them, weaken them and make them sink gradually. It is the best and most effectual way to enslave them. Make them think they are alone in their passion and beliefs and the rest of the country really wants my way, the way of the enemy. But that would be a lie. There is nothing further from the truth. How do I know this? Because, I travel this country, see this beautiful land we call America and meet the Patriots; I meet you everywhere I go.There is a brotherhood among Americans. It is a heartbeat that cannot be denied. It says we were born free and cannot be slaves. It is this sense of Liberty, inherent in the hearts of Americans that makes us the land of the free. So, be the land of the brave, have no fear, Patriot, you are not alone.
♫O beautiful for spacious skies for amber waves of grain, ..For purple mountains majesty above the fruited plain! ♫America! America!♪ God shed his grace on thee, And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea.♪♪
There are ministers throughout this nation, still willing to take a stand for this wonderful gift of Liberty. They understand as Thomas Jefferson said,
“God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the Liberties of a nation be thought secure, if we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of men that these Liberties are the gift of God?”
Jefferson’s quote doesn’t end there, although that is the most repeated line. And many pastors of our nation, I believe understand the rest of this quote more so than the first. A Patriotic Minister’s true driving force is the love of their flock and the understanding that we serve a just God.
“That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed, I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just; that His justice cannot sleep forever.” ~Jefferson
Not every minister is more in love with their 501(c)(3), more in love with the tithed dollar than they are with the gifts of God. Many still fear God more than the deacons’ wives and are willing to stand and preach to their congregations the truth of the glorious founding of this nation. They remind their flock that God gave us liberty and as children of God we have an obligation to fight for the gifts of God. Not only do they know this just God will not suffer the mistreatment of His gifts, they also know what Patrick Henry said,
“We are three millions of people, armed in the holy cause of Liberty, and in such a country as that we possess, are invincible by any force which are enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friend to fight our battles for us.”
How do I know this? I am invited to teach the truth of our nation in the churches and from their pulpits. I just left New York, invited by your Bishops to teach your Catholic churches, students, and Patriots, the truth about Liberty.
Our Patriotic Ministers know that they fight not on their own; they fight with the spirit of Liberty that comes from God himself. They understand they have a duty to that Fearful Master and fear not when men can do. They stand as David and cry “Who dare defy the army of the Lord!”
O beautiful for pilgrim feet whose stem impassioned stress A thoroughfare for freedom beat across the wilderness! America! America! God shed his grace on thee Til paths be wrought through wilds of thought by pilgrim foot and knee!
It’s not just the pastors, it’s the truck drivers who honk and wave at the various patriotic messages painted on my back window. It’s the citizens that I encounter on a daily basis, and when asked what they think is happening in America, resolution flashes in their eyes. In a land where men are born free, slavery is not seen with love, it is glared at with a firm resolution that men will remain free. It’s the Patriot leaders who give up their jobs, their lives, their fortunes, devoting all remnants of sanity so their children can live somewhat normal lives, while fighting the noble battle for liberty. We are America, and we represent those who know that it is Liberty that makes us different from every other nation.
It is Liberty that brings the immigrant – not healthcare, not welfare, not government grants.
And there are citizens in every city, in every backwoods town across this great nation, resolved to see Liberty prosper, whatever the cost.
“Yet, notwithstanding the complicated difficulties that rise before us, there is no receding;…May nothing ever check that glorious spirit of freedom which inspires the patriot in the cabinet, and the hero in the field, with courage to maintain their righteous cause, and to endeavor to transmit the claim to posterity, even if they must seal the rich conveyance to their children with their own blood.” ~Mercy Otis Warren letter to John Adams August 2, 1775
We are three million Patrick Henry spoke of, but in modern numbers – many more. You may not meet them every day, but I do. And I see the patriot spirit that burns in their hearts, the same spirit that gave our founders the courage and resolution to stand against the most powerful nation on the planet, the very nation they called their parent. Today, I hear phrases like, “cold dead hand” and “not on my watch”. Make no mistake, America, no matter what you may hear on FOX or CNN, the watchers have become warriors, and we will not serve as slaves.
♪O beautiful for heroes proved in liberating strife….. When more than self their country loved and mercy more than life ………. America, America! May God thy God refine …. Till all success be nobleness and every gain divine♫
Put aside the “wrong stream media”. I am on the street, meeting your brothers and sisters who are dedicated to this battle. I am conducting my own poll and my numbers and testimonies do not lie. Know Patriot, that you are not alone. You stand shoulder to shoulder with your brothers and sisters, the tireless warriors in this battle for Liberty. You may not see each other’s faces, but you share the same heartbeat. You may not see any glory now. You may think you are engaged in a thankless task. But you know as well as I do, that glory comes in the victory, not in the battle. That thanks comes in the hearts of generations to follow as they live as freemen in STILL the greatest nation on the planet.
We do not look with temporal eyes. Our vision extends, as our founders did, to “ages and millions yet unborn.” We know that Liberty is a gift from God that has been purchased with the blood of our fathers, and if God be for us, who can be against us?
“Courage, then, my countrymen, our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty.” –Samuel Adams, Philadelphia, August 1, 1776
So yes, if I were the enemy, I would want to you to feel alone. I would give my last breath to make you feel divided. I would do everything I could possibly do to make you believe a lie; because for me -the enemy- truth is fatal to my mission. The truth is – we are united in the passion for Liberty, within our hearts and our heritage. We cannot be divided on this ground and that makes us a fearful foe to tyranny. Because a thousand years of history proves, when men stand for liberty, they WILL NOT be defeated. We have much to do, but we will see victory. Our children will live free.
O beautiful for patriot dream that sees beyond the years …..Thine alabaster cities gleam undimmed by human tears! ♪America! America! God shed his grace on thee♫ And crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea♪♪
