“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6


"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

***Our Actions MUST reflect our words!!!


"In the beginning of revolution, the patriot is a scarce man, brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for it then costs nothing to be a patriot." - Mark Twain

by The Patriot Sheepdog
In the midst of all the usurpations of every aspect of our Federal Government, our Constitution, which enumerated (counted/limited) specific powers of the government, is being used as a "rubber document," being stretched to cover/authorize the government to limitless power!  Furthermore, the actual legitimate duties of the government, to protect the people and their rights, are being neglected!  If the government is allowed, by We the People, to assert their power where they see fit, then what is the applicable significance of a power-limiting document, such as the Constitution?!

"I believe there are more instances of the abridgement of freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachment by those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation." - James Madison


It seems to be "in style" to be Pro-Constitution now days, but words mean nothing if they aren't backed by integrity and action...besides, isn't that how the majority of politicians operate?  We must not become like them, or buy into their rhetoric. We can prevent this through education and knowing/living our principles and values, like those of our Founders.  Education is time consuming, but consequences of decades of "taking their word for it" and our lack of engagement are being felt today.  There are numerous resources (listed below) to accurately educate ourselves; however, it is our task to follow through!


"Education is cheap defense of nations." - Edmund Burke


It is easy to wave the Gadsen flag or slap a anti-Obama sticker on your car, but those who do so without changing their engagement in our "consent of the governed" process confirm the politicians' claims of our stupidity, and destroy the credibility of the recent conservative movement manifested on November 2nd.  

"How fortunate for governments, that the people they govern don't think." - Adolf Hitler

November 2nd was NOT the end, it was ONLY the beginning!  We must make our engagement a priority and part of our lives through organization, consolidation, and encouragement to each other.  If We the People become distracted and lose interest, this true grass-roots effort will have been a flash in the pan, because there are forces (at home and abroad) who do not sleep or give up.  There are more of us than them and we can save our free country, but our weakness is our tendency to apathy.  They are counting on us to lose interest and disengage.  It will not be easy, but anything worth while never is.  Besides, this didn't happen overnight; we have years of apathy for which to account.  Let us not make the efforts of our Founders irrelevant.

 "The price of Liberty, is eternal vigilance." - Thomas Jefferson


In addition to stuffing this government back into the confines of our Constitution, we must be watchful of the current legislation sponsored, passed, and supported by those who we've elected. When they step outside the bounds of the Constitution and the consent of the governed, WE MUST CONSISTENTLY KEEP OUR WORD, AND VOTE THEM OUT!  It's not like we didn't warn them on November 2nd. We just need to SHOW THEM THAT WE MEANT WHAT WE SAID!  Besides, they're the ones who took an oath to SUPPORT AND DEFEND THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES; Its not like they didn't know better!


"Without Integrity, nothing counts; With Integrity, nothing matters." - Winston Churchill

Share this with those who have claimed to be engaged (Facebook "Recommend" link at the top and bottom of this article).  This is how we stick together.  America is the world's last frontier of freedom, and it is 100% up to you to ensure that it lives or dies!


"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil, is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
