“The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it.”
— Woodrow Wilson (Speech in New York, September 9, 1912)
“Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit upon his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.”
— H. L. Mencken (1880-1956)
We’ve come through the Looking Glass. On this side, however, is Wonderland with a decidedly Orwellian twist.
The Red Queen has morphed into a Marxist President (still red and still in charge, though).
The Mad Hatter is Little Timmy Geithner, wannabe Treasury Czar of the World, whose Tea Party is hosted on Wall Street while other “tea parties” are convened by patriots throughout America in response.
The maddening Cheshire Cat is our media, with that smile conveying nothing but misdirection and gibberish.
“Some are more equal than others,” said Orwell through his piggy little Animal Farm overseer. We know who are the “others.” Thee and me, of course. For extra points, guess who are the “some” of whom Orwell wrote.
Painting the Roses Red
“We’re painting the roses red,” sang the playing-card soldiers when asked by Alice why they were drenching all the white roses in the kingdom with bright red paint. All the minions of the new Administration are busy repainting roses throughout America.
However, as observed by Shakespeare, “What is in a name? A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” Bush’s policies still are the same, regardless of the spin now being accorded them by the Obamatrons. We’re still in Iraq. Gitmo still is in business. America’s southern border still is wide open. The Bush bailouts continue unabated, but now are on steroids.
It’s enough to make your head spin, isn’t it?
Each week brings a fresh batch of outrageous events and news items that further marginalize an ever-growing percentage of Americans. Last week brought a bumper crop, headed by an incredible document leaked by someone in the Missouri police bureaucracy. Entitled “The Modern Militia Movement,” the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) document popped up on Alex Jones’ web site and promptly sent shock waves throughout the patriot community.
You’re a Terrorist Now
Have you ever supported in any way Republican Ron Paul of Texas? How about last year’s Libertarian Party Presidential candidate, Bob Barr? Or the Constitution Party’s Presidential candidate, Chuck Baldwin? According to MIAC, you are a “militia-influenced terrorist.” Yep, you heard me right. You are a terrorist. Look, I couldn’t just make up stuff as outlandish as is this sort of thing. Truth continues to be stranger than fiction. We’re painting the roses red.
Better go scrape that bumper sticker off your car, because MIAC specifically identifies it as evidence that you should be watched and approached with caution. MIAC is just one of 58 “fusion centers” funded throughout America by the federal Department of Homeland Security with over a quarter-billion dollars, tasked with identifying “potential trends or patterns of terrorist or criminal operations” (per the MIAC web site) in America.
Are you opposed to the coming North American Union (NAU), whereby America is subsumed within a new government encompassing all of North America? How about the New World Order (NWO), whereby America surrenders her Constitution altogether in favor of becoming just another cog in a world government? Speak out against either the NAU or the NWO in any way and you are a terrorist, says MIAC, courtesy of your tax dollars spent in its support. Continue reading We’re All Terrorists Now→
Today’s Boston Tea Party 2007 has been a wild success. It looks like Ron Paul’s supporters will raise well over 5 million dollars today.
Today’s Americans realize that we need Ron Paul as our leader. Edgar J. Steele has done an excellent piece on the need for Ron Paul as President of the united States of America. He explains, quite eloquently, what America is all about and why we must act immediately in order to restore our republic, before a violent revolution happens. We must incite a revelation, so that we may avoid a revolution!
My name is Edgar J. Steele. This is a Nickel Rant.
On this date in 1773, a great many Americans were fed up with the tyranny of the ruling British government.
On this date in 1773, throngs massed in the colonies to protest the unfairness of taxes emplaced upon Americans to favor vested ruling interests.
On this date in 1773, a group of strong-minded Boston individuals, “the Sons of Liberty,” followed through and, in a coordinated act of disobedience, destroyed 45 tons of British-East-India-Company-owned tea in protest of unfair taxation and usurpation of American interests by arrogant British overlords.
The Boston Tea Party marked a turning point in the evolution of America, resting upon the rallying cry “No taxation without representation!”
A Fresh Call for Liberty
Today, we face a greater enemy than that confronting the Sons of Liberty over 200 years ago.
Today, we pay far greater taxes than our forebears, yet suffer far greater indignities at the hands of arrogant and unresponsive overlords, overlords chosen by others and placed in office through the charade of false elections.
Today, the call has come forth for a new Boston Tea Party, to protest our current outrageous taxation without representation. We must, if we are to survive as a nation, answer that call.
Some say that patriotism is old fashioned.
Some think that love of country is out of date.
Some consider the slightest show of sentiment toward one’s homeland to be naive.
But, God help us – and God help our country – if the cynics, the one worlders, the Neoconservative intellectual dilettantes ever persuade us that these things have passed us by.
Because, ladies and gentlemen, patriotism, loyalty, sentiment…THESE THINGS ARE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
In my lifetime, I have seen America grow and change. I have seen her stand tall and I have seen her brought low.
I have seen the best that America can be and, in recent years, I have seen the worst that America can be.
But always, she has been my America …our America…and she will be our America, come what may…for better or for worse.
We have a habit here in America of forgetting what a grand and noble experiment she represented when our founding fathers wrote the Declaration of Independence and, then, the Constitution.
We forget the sacrifices they made…in property … in family … and, finally, in their own blood.
We forget that they merely lent us the destiny they created, to hold in trust for our children … their grandchildren, many generations removed.
We have been squandering that legacy with which we have been entrusted. It is high time that we rose up and recovered it.
The New Sons and Daughters of Liberty
Today, December 16, 2007, we all of us – every single one of us – must come together as the new Sons and Daughters of Liberty, to right the manifest wrongs done to America and to others in our name.
We have a standard bearer who has been set apart from all other Presidential candidates both by the overlords and by his own intractable demeanor.
Ron Paul is All of Us
We have a true champion, one who has answered our call for honesty, trustworthiness and intellectual rigor.
We have Ron Paul … and we need his honesty, his zeal, his vision for America, else we are lost, my countrymen.
Today we have a new, symbolic Boston Tea Party taking place, one in which we all can participate.
Unless we succeed in our new endeavor to rescue America from the forces of darkness and tyranny that are smothering us, I fear that we will have nothing left to us but violent revolution.
Yes, things are just that critical: Ron Paul or Revolution!
Yes, Ron Paul is just one man. But Ron Paul symbolizes all that we have left to hope for as a nation.
Ron Paul is you. Ron Paul is your neighbor. Ron Paul is your brother. Ron Paul is all of us.
Support Ron Paul and you support us all.
Times Make the Man
Men do not make the times. Times make the man. Today the times cry out for the common man – us – as represented in Ron Paul.
I asked you once before, on November 5th, to make a difference by contributing to Ron Paul’s campaign and you responded in a big way, one that forced the establishment to take note of Dr. Paul’s candidacy. I ask you once again, today, to make another contribution, even larger, if you possibly can afford it. We have an even more important message to deliver today.
A New Boston Tea Party
Today is yet another massive fundraising effort on behalf of us, in the name of Dr. Paul. Today truly is a new Boston Tea Party Day, fellow Americans. Help make a difference right now. Click over to https://www.ronpaul2008.com/donate/ right now and make your donation in support of our future. Keep trying, as web contention for the site is furious today.
Then click over to http://www.ronpaul2008.com/ and watch for your name to join that of the other new Sons and Daughters of Liberty who have joined the Ron Paul Revolution.
If you already have pledged today, good for you. Now do it again!
We Have a Message to Deliver: Ron Paul or Revolution!
There are rumors swirling about the land today – rumors of plans afoot by the dark overlords of America to assassinate Dr. Paul, should he become the Republican Presidential nominee or, even, should he become likely to become the nominee.
We must send a message that it would be the gravest error to attempt to derail this train, which gathers momentum with each day that passes. Should tragedy strike and Dr. Paul be prevented from fulfilling our destiny, a hundred like him will rise up, then a thousand, then a hundred thousand, then a million and, on that day, the New American Revolution truly will begin!
Ron Paul or Revolution!
America Can Work Again
America worked once as a constitutional republic. It can work again.
Don’t despair at how difficult the road ahead might seem to be. The most important things in the world have been accomplished by people who kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all. The only real failure in life is in giving up, you know.
Today, we have hope. Today we vest that hope in ourselves, in the form of Ron Paul.
I am glad you are with us. I am glad you risk so much to make a difference. I am glad so many are willing to give so much. I am proud to call you friend.
Be the Person You Know You Are
Now, listen closely to what I’m about to tell you…Don’t try to be better than anybody else. Just try to be better than yourself. Today, be the person you know you are and join us.
Do that, and they will never break our spirit.
They will never silence us.
They will never take our freedom.
Today, we can touch lives.
Today, we can make a difference.
Today, we can awaken America.
Today, we can take back America.
New America. An idea whose time has come.

You may have heard about the recent Federal raid and seizure of the assets and records of NORFED (National Organization for the Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act), a private company owned by Bernard Von NotHaus, that has been selling gold and silver bullion coins labeled “Liberty Dollars” through an arguably-questionable multi-level-marketing (MLM) scheme.
The Washington Post recently reported that “The ardent supporters of Rep. Ron Paul, the iconoclastic Texas libertarian whose campaign for the presidency is threatening to upend the battle for the Republican nomination, got word yesterday of a new source of outrage and motivation: reports of a federal raid on a company that was selling thousands of coins marked with the craggy visage of their hero.” Continue reading Edgar J.
