"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!

Borough Assembly

I am going to join Aaron again in running for borough assembly. Can we win? I don't know, but winning a seat isn't everything. Look at the way things have changed just in one year, the conversation in this town is different than it ever has been.
Running for office gives us the opportunity to get the message of Liberty out to people who otherwise would never hear it, and that is the real goal. Not a seat.
The more people we all can reach that they can and should live a Free life, the better off this community will be.

New Episode Online

The latest episode of Patriot's Lament is now online at our YouTube channel.

Tune in live every Saturday morning to 660 AM from 10:00-11:00 AM.

Hey Hey!

Some people you can never please, you might as well just let them be, they mock everything not their own, from their imaginary throne...

We are seeing it now. We were told that no way would we be downgraded if we passed the debt ceiling, and some were crying from the rooftops that NO MATTER WHAT, we would be downgraded. Some said it was imperative that we allow the government to sell our posterity down the road with more debt, that the end of our civilization was upon us. Those who stood up and said NO! were mocked, ridiculed, called terrorist, you name it. The elite, from their imaginary thrones, looked down on us and scared the masses into bowing down to their will. And many of our "leaders" whom we looked to and supposedly sent to Washington to stand against the Throne, bent their knee.
Fast forward to today.
How the traitors who voted for the debt ceiling must feel betrayed. They capitulated for "the good of the people" and and the very thing they were told wouldn't happen, has.
I don't feel sorry for them, they knew what was right, and they voted for political expediency; they sold our birthright so they wouldn't be mocked.

And now, I mock them.


What gave you the right to steal from my family so you could pat yourself on the back and stand in awe of your patriotic bravery, elitism and political achievements? 
I mock you, you fool. You betrayed the very thing you knew to be right. You are no friend of mine. I don't care if you're a "nice guy," I could care less that you feel my pain; I mock the agony you supposedly went  through while you wreaked havoc over your own people.
Fool. What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? And what was your gain?
Don't you realize that when you are worth something to someone, they do things for you, and when you are worthless to someone, they do things to you? What is your worth now?
You are nothing to me, you are in the same category in my book as the thief who would break down my door and ravage my family.
A second flood, a simple famine, plagues of locusts everywhere, or a cataclysmic earthquake, I'd accept with some despair. But no, You sent us Congress! Good God, Sir, was that fair? John Adams

“Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.” John Quincy Adams

Greater men than you faced far more adversity with far more to lose than just their political careers, and they didn't waiver, they were not faint, they stood for that which was Right, and their memory lives on, and their posterity will speak highly of them until the end of time, and you, Fool, will be forgotten, and if you are spoken of, it will be with disdain.


I won't bow down even if the whole world thinks I am crazy!


Aaron Bennett announced today that he is running for Fairbanks North Star Borough Assembly.

The Debt Show

Writes Lew Rockwell
Most Americans learned their lesson during TARP: all their calls and letters to congressmen had had no effect as compared to a nudge from Goldman Sachs, etc. Since we live in a bankocracy, it mattered not at all that 100% of real people were opposed to the big-boy bailout. And this time, I can't find any regular people who care about the debt ceiling, and why should they? We know, with Ron Paul, that default is the far better option, economically and morally, than more debt. We also know, with Ron, that the congress will obey the banks, and keep borrowing and inflating until the dollar is wastepaper. That's why all this manufactured drama interests no one not on the regime's payroll (the cable channels, for example). We also know that the balanced-budget amendment is a snare and a delusion, as Ron has long pointed out. But who ever thought our salvation was to be found in the US congress, that collection of demagogues, bribe-takers, clowns, and boobs, and a handful of decent people? The democratic myth holds that they are our "representatives," and you can lobby them just like Citibank or Lockheed does. No, you can't. Ron Paul is leaving congress. What else do we need to know? We need to follow his lead, in his work against the regime and for economic sanity, peace, and civil liberties. Forget congress. Or rather, diss them every chance you get, laugh at them, withdraw your consent, and know that our hope is elsewhere: in our own minds and hearts, inspired by great men like Ron, and in the hearts and minds of our comrades.
