"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!

Our Enemy, the State

When I heard about all those little kids getting gunned down, I was pretty saddened, to say the least.
It's sickening.
Reminded me of another reason my wife and I home school our kids. I hear the gun control folks foaming at the mouth, getting excited thinking their agenda might finally win the day. Remember, never let a crisis go to waste.
 When really the only way to stop public school shootings is to end public schools.

But then, I listened to Obama, and heard reports of his crocodile tears, and I listened to the governor of Connecticut, and heard how he was mourning. I listened to a chief of police, and how sad he was.

And I don't believe any of them.

These Statists, I would bet, didn't even blink when 30-40 young children were murdered by Our Enemy the State in Waco. Burned to death. Did any of these people speak up when 14-year-old Sammy Weaver was shot in the back by Our Enemy the State? Which of these spoke up when that little girl in Montana was severely burned when a flash bang grenade blew up in her face, thrown into her window by Our Enemy, the State? Are we to believe that these people, who not only allow, but promote Our Enemy the State's TSA "officers" degrading little boys and girls who merely wish to fly on a commercial airplane with their parents to go see grandma for Christmas are truly saddened by 20 little kids getting shot?
Do you believe Our Enemy the State's President cries when he finds out that 20-30 or more little kids get blown up by a drone missile? Weekly? Do you believe someone who is an official of Our Enemy the State who thinks the President has the authority to kill, is worried about some little kids? Do you think Our Enemy the State is saddened by little kids dying who happened to make it out of the womb alive?

I don't. I don't believe any of it. These people, Our Enemy the State, are murderers. They do not care about you. They are not there to protect you. They are the ruling class, and yours is to serve.
They dominate every aspect of your life, they claim your life, and the right to take that life.
What makes me more sick is to see the clamoring serfs begging Our Enemy the State to do something, like it's some benevolent god, looking out for the safety of its worshipers, like a mother hen, gathering her chicks under her wings to protect them from the hawk.

To save us from our enemies.

Rather, I say our enemy IS the State.

You won't hear any mainstream media, or "conservative" talk show hosts, talk about the fact that of all the school shootings in the last 10 years, the shooters have been on a prescribed medication, usually one that was given to them by Our Enemy the State's schools in the first place. No, we can't talk about the adulterous affair Our Enemy the State has with big pharma. We can't talk about the fact that all these shootings happen in "gun free zones."
Look to Our Enemy the State to make some hay off of the misery of these folks' dead children. Prepare for what "restrictions" they will put on us now to protect us, even more than we are protected.
Don't talk about the fact that the reason Our Enemy the State says we need them is to protect us, and they failed again to do so, miserably. Funny, if you go to where they hang out, (courts, state buildings) they sure as heck will make sure you don't have any way to harm THEM.

I don't want their protection, but our Enemy, the State, says if I don't accept their protection, and pay for it at the price they set, they will kill me.

 Perhaps someday they will anyway.


  1. Where God tells us to love our enemies and love our neighbors, and I think this means we are to view each other as just as much people as ourselves, just as much ends as we see our own lives as ends, not means to ends, the State and its minions view everyone not in the State as means. Eggs to break for an omelette. If we need to die for their greater purposes, so be it. Ours is not to reason why...

    While reverting to the government the Constitution described would be a giant step in the right direction it was a giant step in the wrong direction when it was written.
