Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it. ~Thomas Paine

Soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines understand that freedom isn’t free.  The rest of us must also do our part to protect individual liberty and independence from an ever increasing and intrusive government.  Find a Tea Party near you.  Go to it, at least for a little while.  Then, have a family picnic, watch fireworks, and be thankful you live in The United States of America.

We The People Stimulus Package

The Second American Revolution

Thomas Paine’s  Common Sense

It is time to get back to our roots of personal responsibility and limited government.  Find a Tea Party being organized near you and add your voice to the tens of thousands of other Americans who have had enough.

New American Tea Party

America’s Tea Party

Nationwide Tax Day Tea Party

Tea to D.C.!

Tea Parties have already taken place across the country.  Kansas City has had a Tea Party protest every week for the last four weeks.   The movement itself and the number of people attending are growing fast, as witnessed by the Cincinatti Tea Party this past weekend..  More tea parties are being scheduled across the country between now and July 4th.

It is time.  It is time for “We The People” to take back our country.  It is our personal responsibility to protect and preserve the gift given us by our founding fathers.  No one is going to do it for us.

When all is said and done, Civilizations do not fall because of the barbarians at the gates. Nor does a great city fall from the death wish of bored and morally bankrupt stewards presumably sworn to its defense. Civilizations fall only because each citizen of the city comes to accept that nothing can be done to rally and rebuild broken walls; that ground lost may never be recovered; and that greatness lived in our grandparents but not our grandchildren. Yes, our betters tell us these things daily. But that doesn’t mean we have to believe it.

Ask the common people of all politics and persuasions aboard Flight 93 whether greatness and courage has deserted America. Through this magical crystal ball — the one we are using right now — we common people can speak to one another. And by reminding ourselves and those around us of who we are, where we came from, what we have achieved together and of the marvels we have yet to achieve, we may laugh in the face of despair and mock those people that think a man with an MBA from Harvard knows more about running a gas station than the man that actually runs the gas station.

Looks good.  Plus, I’d be happy to spend a little money on a film that turns Michael Moore into a patriot, even if it is just fantasy.

One of the participants in last night’s Move America Forward web telethon was Diana Nagy. She sings an amazing song written by her mother and titled “Where Freedom Flies”. They played an excerpt from the video on the telethon last night. Here’s the full version of the video. If you like the song, you can purchase it at iTunes or order a cd at CD Baby.
