Independence Forever!

“The Declaration of Independence [is the] declaratory charter of our rights, and the rights of man.” –Thomas Jefferson

We Need Your Help

From our inception to this day, we at The Patriot Post have been vigilant against the threats to our Constitution, and we remain steadfast in our advocacy for Rule of Law. Not since the first American Revolution has our nation faced more crucial battles for liberty.

Please make a secure online donation to The Patriot’s 2010 Independence Day campaign. If you prefer to support us by mail, please use our printable donor form.

Also, we will not publish the normal Friday Digest this week in order to spend time with our families to celebrate America’s independence. We’ll be back on Monday, July 5.

At first glance, in my email, I thought I was reading something that Alexander Hamilton might have written, in his day. THEN, I see who the real writer was, and the references to Jeffersonian-ism made much more sense.I totally agree. The question becomes: How do we erradicate the damage done by the Hamiltonians throughout our History (oh, and the John Marhsalls, as well)..?Do we actually have any Representatives in Office, anywhere, who are ready to eliminate THE FED, or quit over-spending FIAT currency?Money was always meant to be the tool of the People. It was NEVER meant for the People to be "slaves to money" as teh Banking Cartels have achieved after the (silent) Revolution of 1913.Can anyone answer my question?

Let's not forget that today marks the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg and that July 4 is also the day when Vicksburg surrendered to Grant. "And let me speak to the yet unknowing world / How these things came about. / So shall you hear / Of carnal, bloody, and unnatural acts, / Of accidental judgements [sic], casual slaughters, / Of deaths put on by cunning and forced cause, / And, in this upshot, purposes mistook/ Fall'n on the inventors' heads. -- Hamlet, V:ii

The Progressives use language as a weapon. They contol context with it. We could start using Democratic Replublic in place of Democracy.We could use Progressive and Conservative in place of Democrat and Replublican. This would stop some o the circular double-speak and confusion the talking heads use to "muddy" evry conversation that keeps the "coolaid" drinmkers drinking.De-centrailization down to the county seat level is the ANSWER. 50% all taxes paid locally...20% to Stateas for state infrastructure and security... 30% to National Government for national security and national infrastructure.Locally provide evrything needed programs/education/fuel/food/water/represenative government/energ/local currency

"That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government...". How can the peole go about legally altering or abolishng this destruction of America? What can we do when our government is devoid of ethics and respect for those who elected them?

Please stop refering to Barry and company as socialists, they are communists. The socialists are the RINO's and CFR members in the republicrat party.

If Kagan's nomination goes through and she becomes a lifetime Federal judge we who value freedom, the constitution and all of the liberties that are inherent in that short, common sense document, will pay dearly as she moves her Statist philosophy forward.Like Thomas Jefferson said before he died we must get fed up with this bastardization of America and become compelled through heart and mind to all stand up for the freedoms and the inalienable rights as stated in our Constitution.Many of us are ready to give up our fortunes and our lives for the freedoms that are currently being taken away from us as a people and as a free country.Our men in the armed services need to come home; the war is on American soil now.

The people of this GREAT Nation need to wake up while we still have some Life, Liberty, and some means to Pursue Happiness left. The Government in power now (and in the past) are in the take away mode. The present Government must be voted out while we still have the means to do it. If they continue on the path they are on, it will be too late. We are being made SLAVES of those in power, in Washington. It's becomming like the Company Store, like the song-16 Tons. You owe your soul to the company store, but in this case, you owe it to the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. I hate feeling like this, but I feel thankful that my being over 70 years old, I won't see the final distruction. BUT, I feel sorry for my children, their children, all of the next generationS. May GOD Bless and keep them safe, during and after the take over of a once Great Nation. Everything being done in Washington today is preparing this Country for a takeover by those in power or some other nation, wait, maybe they are the same.
