"Posterity, you will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you will make good use of it. If you do not, I shall repent in heaven that ever I took half the pains to preserve it." -John Adams

Welcome to Patriot's Lament. We strive here to educate ourselves on Liberty. We will not worry ourselves so much with the daily antics of American politics, and drown ourselves in the murky waters of the political right or left.
Instead, we will look to the Intellectuals and Champions of Liberty, and draw on their wisdom of what it is to be a truly free people. We will learn from where our Providential Liberties are derived, and put the proper perspective of a Free Individual and the State.
Please join us!

more from the other post

I want to expand a little more.
I was told that we need a constitutional amendment, a parental rights amendment. The reason being that the U.S. could sign the U.N.'s "Rights of the child" treaty.
Are we such a defeated people that we would cower and obey such a treaty? "Well a treaty becomes the law of the land!"
Don't those that would have to sign such a treaty take an oath to "Uphold and defend the constitution of the united States against all enemies foreign and domestic"?
Doesn't that infer that even a treaty, if it is unconstitutional, is null and void? We are not required to follow such a treaty. In fact, we are obligated to resist it. Our rights cannot be taken, even by treaty, because those Rights were NOT granted by man.
Again I say, the state only has the power we give it. If the 3% stand together and say NO!, the state would have few options.
Dare to think outside the bun, dare to take a stand for Liberty. You are not the servant.

Whenever the legislators endeavor to take away and destroy the property of the people, or to reduce them to slavery under arbitrary power, they put themselves into a state of war with the people, who are thereupon absolved from any further obedience, and are left to the common refuge which God hath provided for all men against force and violence. John Locke

  1. "Our rights cannot be taken, even by treaty, because those Rights were NOT granted by man."

    Right on.

    Even when "legislated" away, your rights are still yours to defend. Only you can surrender them.

    Good posts.
