"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!

Fascist radio

It is truly amazing to me how many folks in this country are duped by the right wing radio talk show fascists.
You know, the ones who groan on and on about Obama and the democrats and their "unconstitutional acts" and blab about how "our Founders would roll over in their grave!"
The supposed "great one" who is called upon for his constitutional wisdom among the talk shows.
The same guys who thunderously applauded the Patriot act's implementation. The same ones who applaud aggressive wars. The same ones who scream about the wickedness of Obamacare, then have Mitt Romney on their show and laud his conservatism. The same ones who espouse family values, with special guest Newt Gingrich. Or the one who talks of family values and the next segment talks about his 4th wife, or is it his 5th? The same ones who double speak about being pro-life, and promote sending our kids into war, to kill and be killed. The same ones who blab about the left wanting to suppress religion, and then try to close Muslim mosques.
 Freedom of speech and assembly and they mock anyone who protests the federal reserve. How the "left" doesn't tell the truth and hides information from us that may be damaging to them, and blackball Ron Paul. Yes those republicans are the answer to all things good radio talk show hosts.
These flukes never speak of our revolution. But they do espouse obedience to the state. Do you ever hear the word "Liberty" come from their mouths? Would they know what it means?

What I am trying to point out is, they are lying stooges.

And I do believe the founders of the united States would surely roll in their grave, especially if they could hear these guys push their lies and attribute their wisdom to the wisdom of the Founders.

On Party politics:

I have already intimated to you the danger of parties in the State, with particular reference to the founding of them on geographical discriminations. Let me now take a more comprehensive view, and warn you in the most solemn manner against the baneful effects of the spirit of party generally.
This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.... It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which finds a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another. George Washington

On foreign entanglements:

Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all. Religion and morality enjoin this conduct; and can it be, that good policy does not equally enjoin it  It will be worthy of a free, enlightened, and at no distant period, a great nation, to give to mankind the magnanimous and too novel example of a people always guided by an exalted justice and benevolence. Who can doubt that, in the course of time and things, the fruits of such a plan would richly repay any temporary advantages which might be lost by a steady adherence to it ? George  Washington

I have ever deemed it fundamental for the United States never to take active part in the quarrels of Europe. Their political interests are entirely distinct from ours. Their mutual jealousies, their balance of power, their complicated alliances, their forms and principles of government, are all foreign to us. They are nations of eternal war. All their energies are expended in the destruction of the labor, property and lives of their people." --Thomas Jefferson

Wherever the standard of freedom and independence has been or shall be unfurled, there will her (America) heart, her benedictions and her prayers be. But she goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy.  She is the well-wisher to the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. John Quincy Adams

On the patriot act:
"Any people that would give up liberty for a little temporary safety deserves neither liberty nor safety." 

"Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves."  William Pitt

On Liberty:

A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry. Jefferson 
"We base all our experiments on the capacity of mankind for self-government."  James Madison

The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government."

Patrick Henry  

On Morality:
"Can the liberties of a nation be sure when we remove their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people, that these liberties are a gift from God?  Thomas Jefferson

"Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other."  John Adams

"(T)he foundation of our national policy will be laid in the pure and immutable principles of private morality; ...the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained..."  George Washington

And finally, man's Right to resist tyranny:

"If we wish to be free, if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending, if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained _ we must fight!"  Patrick Henry

And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to the facts, pardon and pacify them.... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure."

Thomas Jefferson

"Resistance to tyrants is obedience to God."  Thomas Jefferson

"Government is not reason; it is not eloquence. It is force. And force, like fire, is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."  George Washington

So, the next time you turn on the radio and hear one of these guys blabbing on and on, and they bring up freedom, the Founders, the Constitution, or anything of the like, remember what you read here, from the Founders themselves, and you can disassociate yourself from the lies of the "right" and arm yourself with what Liberty is all about. Like we have said here before, don't take our word for it, and please, don't take the talking heads' word for it; look it up yourselves.
