"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!

Patriot Militia Attacks Government Forces

Police and National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed Sunday by elements of a para-military right wing extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.
Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist militia faction has citizens who have links to the radical right wing tax protest movement. Gage blamed the militia for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices.
The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “terrorists,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government's efforts to secure law and order. The law enforcement team, augmented by elements of the National Guard, were sent to raid a militia arsenal after widespread refusal of right wing extremists to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. This decision followed a meeting in early July between government and law enforcement which authorized the confiscation of the illegal arms, known as the weapons of choice among criminals and militias.
One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out “that none of these people would have been killed had right wing extremists obeyed the law and turned over the weapons voluntarily.”
Police and government forces initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily armed militia extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.
During a tense stand-off in Lexington ‘s town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right wing extremists. Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.
Ironically, the local citizens blamed the government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, heavily armed militia groups from surrounding areas had descended upon the police and guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by militia mobs, ordered a retreat.
Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor has also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government. Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist militia faction remain at large.

No, that did NOT just happen.

Thanks Claudio!

What if it was your kid?

A good friend asked me the other day; " I listened to your show last week, but I have to ask you, what if your child was one of the ones killed, would you be all "due process" then?"
A hard question if you answer it honestly. And there are a few things to say here about the State and Justice, but that is another topic.
I answered, but asked him back," No doubt that is a hard question, but what if YOUR child was the one being accused?"
No doubt, you would be a believer in Due process.
Due Process is the one thing I think that separated the union of States from the rest of the world.
No one, not one, could be deprived of Life, Liberty, or Property without due process of Law. If found guilty, the remedy was there.
Strange how Statism has struck during this tragedy. Folks who are totally against the State and against Obama, decided that in this instance, they are full supporters.
Again I ask, where are the Sons of Liberty? The defenders of Due Process? The Libertarian? The Liberal? The Conservative?
It is a slow fade, a fading into totalitarianism, with the cheers of the above mentioned.

I hope, I pray, that there are still the Remnant, the Radicals as they may be called, who will stand and say NO!

Truly George Washington's words are more true today than when the Colonists were fighting for their Liberty some 250 years ago; " The time is near at hand, whether Americans are to be free men, or slaves."

I choose to be free. You?


History repeats.

USA! USA! USA! or "It all started in Boston"

So went the chants of the feeble sheep in Boston after the accused "Boston bomber" was taken into custody the other day.
As everyone knows, Boston was in total lock down, of course none dare call it (save a few) Martial Law, people were simply asked to stay in the confines of their homes.
And the whole city obeyed without a peep.
I talked with some friends who were in awe how the "terrorists" were able to shut down Boston, and I agreed, but our view of the terrorists were different; in my view, the terrorist State shut down Boston.
Would Boston have shut down merely from the terror bombings? No, it took the terror of the State to do it.
Terror of the State?
I have read reports of the police State warning through loud speakers that, "if you want to live"... followed by whatever order they were giving. The police State going house to house, ordering serfs out of their homes, "hands up, hands up!!" all the while automatic rifles are pointed at the serfs' heads.
Is there any doubt that a wrong move, or failure to submit to the unethical, immoral, unlawful searches would have gotten a few serfs shot?
Every Natural Right that a human has was violated that day, and not a peep of resistance.
How is it, in the town of the Father of the Revolution, Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, the Sons of Liberty, the infamous Boston Tea Party, that no one even merely protested? In the town where the British were forced to remain in their ships in port and wouldn't dare walk the streets of Boston without heavy troop presence for fear of the Citizens of the town?
That great town of Boston, whose Citizens under heavy siege resisted the British at every point.
The Crown was their government, they didn't ever say otherwise, (except for a few of the Radicals like Adams and later with the Declaration of Independence) but they resisted their government for abuses of their Natural Rights as British subjects.
Where were the cries from the Bostonians last week to their fellow countrymen for relief during this siege? Would relief have come? 

Sad isn't the right word for what happened, but it's all I can feel.

Now the State has decided that this suspect, who is a U.S. citizen (whether he is or not doesn't matter to me), does not "deserve" his basic human rights and does not deserve to be given what was the cornerstone of the American experiment, no deprivation of Life, Liberty and Property without Due Process of Law.
The Tyrants McCain and Graham seethed that the suspect not be given Due Process, the very thing these 2 took an oath to defend. Graham went on to say how wonderful it would have been to have drones flying the skies of Boston to help in the search, and we find out now that they were. Maybe next time they can use a hell fire missile too!
Graham is right, the battlefield is on the American homeland, but that battle is between American Liberty and the State.

I can't help but wonder what Samuel Adams would say about this whole ordeal, and I think this one part of an essay he wrote tells it:
The liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have receiv'd them as a fair Inheritance from our worthy Ancestors: They purchas'd them for us with toil and danger and expence of treasure and blood; and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men. Of the latter we are in most danger at present: Let us therefore be aware of it. Let us contemplate our forefathers and posterity; and resolve to maintain the rights bequeath'd to us from the former, for the sake of the latter. — Instead of sitting down satisfied with the efforts we have already made, which is the wish of our enemies, the necessity of the times, more than ever, calls for our utmost circumspection, deliberation, fortitude, and perseverance. Let us remember that "if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it, and involve others in our doom." It is a very serious consideration, which should deeply impress our minds, that millions yet unborn may be the miserable sharers of the event. 

 It all started in Boston.

Children belong to the State

Most people have seen this I suppose by now. Melissa Harris-Perry's MSNBC ad, saying that we need to get beyond the thought of children belonging to their own parents and family, and belonging to the community.
Community = State.

Hitler had similar thought on the subject.  “When an opponent declares, ‘I will not come over to your side,’ [Hitler] said in a speech on November 6, 1933, “I calmly say, ‘Your child belongs to us already. . . . What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.’” And on May 1, 1937, [Hitler] declared, “This new Reich will give its youth to no one, but will itself take youth and give to youth its own education and its own upbringing.”
We have to see things for what they are, and call it for what it is. These people are full on Fascist, and there is a war, as real as any war, for your children.
Fight for them.

Patriot's Lament February 23, 2013: Stop Talking and Get Sanctioned

In this episode, ok, in this episode, or at least during, I was seriously thinking of never doing this radio show again. It all just seemed fruitless, helpless, worthless. In the 20 months we have done the show, I felt like not one day had made any dent on the statist front. One caller said we needed to quit talking cause theory and thought is stupid (obviously) and we needed to just start shooting people in the face. I have long told that a revolution has to start with theory and thought. Not murder. Then, we have a caller who says if we don't revitalize the republican party all hope for the world is lost. You see why I seriously thought to never have the show again? But victory and Liberty is not for the faint of heart, my God said to Fear Not! So I shall not. A couple of callers inspired me to keep up the good fight, thank you all who support us with your calls and thoughts and prayers. Fight! THIS BATTLE IS NOT FOR THE WEAK. Liberty, She is beckoning, She is Right there, waiting for those who seek Her and wish to have Her. Liberty will prevail, despite all of Her enemies, we will have Liberty.

Patriot's Lament February 16, 2013: Property and Marriage

In this episode we talk about Absolute Property Rights again. We also talk about how the State uses "Patriotism" to our demise, "Don't revolt, just vote"!! Yeah right. We go on to talk about the gay marriage debate, and reject the State being involved with marriage at all. We pint out that the State can produce only bads, and we put Randy in our crosshairs and don't let him off the hook.

Patriot's Lament February 9, 2013: If God is Against Us and Force Them to Defend Us

In this episode we discuss whether God is on the side of the "U.S." or not. Or did He switch sides? We have a full hour of first time callers call in, and we ask if the state governments will  not protect us from Federal tyranny, and they just rubber stamp anything the Feds do, then why not just get rid of state government altogether?

Patriot's Lament January 26, 2013: Fallacies and Something to Fight For

In this episode we talk about fallacies the State employs against us, and how we would free ourselves from tyranny if we could see through it.
We also talk about homeschooling, and what things are worth fighting for, and as you might guess, politics isn't among the list.
