It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.
Is this applicable today as it was in prior to the revolution? Based on what I believe, it is not. We the people of the United States have become too divided. We have replaced our love of Liberty with apathy. We do not hold freedom dear. The proper quote for our time is:
It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of slavery in the minds of men.
At this point, you have two paths:
1. Stop reading.
2. Stop reading and consider the implications.
If you have taken the latter course, ask yourself the following questions:
1. Is our Republic moral and virtuous?
2. Is our government subservient to the people?
3. Do people believe that our country can be restored by elections based on reality or because it is an excuse?
4. Do you really believe you are free if the "government" steals 50% of the fruits of your labor?
5. And most important, is our country a Christian country?
The last question is the crux of the matter. The English called the American Revolution, the Presbyterian Rebellion. The ministers were leading the charge from both the pulpit and the battlefield. Today, the tireless minority are the followers of Islam, not the Lord. Their tireless minority has infiltrated the fabric of our government and is willing to fight for their beliefs. There are out in the streets of Atlanta and Raleigh. They are in the streets of London and Paris. But no one is out in the streets advocating our founding principle of Liberty.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.
Our chains weigh heavily upon our shoulders because our brothers sold our freedom for entitlements. We do not fight. Some say we wait patiently. As illegal immigrants flood into our country in the final implementation of the Cloward-Piven strategy, we have a decision to make: the rule of law or enslavement by the state. Do not look for politicians to save our country. Do not look for the church to save our country. Look in the mirror and decide if you want your children to be free.
