The Patriot Sheepdog is a proud member of Freedom Force International, an Oath Keeper, 10ther, III%er, and a Sheepdog. In depth exploration of these viewpoints (below) will explain What and Who is the Patriot Sheepdog.
In spite of the recent recovery efforts of many Apathoholics, triggered by recent realization of prominent and extreme government corruption and bloated growth over the years, there are still many who suffer from this disease. The bad thing, is they won't even realize it until its too late. After all, who cares about apathy?!
As a proud American, who believes this country was founded under God and the principles of the Bible, I believe that the success of the

Patriot Sheepdog is a Sheepdog
"Honor never grows old, and honor rejoices the heart of age. It does so because honor is, finally, about defending those noble and worthy things that deserve defending, even if it comes at a high cost. In our time, that may mean social disapproval, public scorn, hardship, persecution, or as always, even death itself. The question remains: What is worth defending? What is worth dying for? What is worth living for?" - William J. Bennett (In a lecture to the United States Naval Academy November 24, 1997)
On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs
by Lt. Col. (Ret.) Dave Grossman
What this means is that the vast majority of Americans are not inclined to hurt one another. We may well be in the most violent times in history, but violence is still remarkably rare. This is because most citizens are kind, decent people who are not capable of hurting each other, except by accident or under extreme provocation. They are sheep.
"..denial can be seductive, but it has an insidious side effect. For all the peace of mind deniers think they get by saying it isn’t so, the fall they take when faced with new violence is all the more unsettling. Denial is a save-now-pay-later scheme, a contract written entirely in small print, for in the long run, the denying person knows the truth on some level." -
If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen: a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you have defined an aggressive sociopath–a wolf. But what if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep love for your fellow citizens? Then you are a sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero’s path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness, into the universal human phobia, and walk out unscathed.
"What goes on around you... compares little with what goes on inside you."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
"There is no safety for honest men except by believing all possible evil of evil men."

(Reflections on the Revolution in France)
If you want to be a sheep, then you can be a sheep and that is okay, but you must understand the price you pay. When the wolf comes, you and your loved ones are going to die if there is not a sheepdog there to protect you. If you want to be a wolf, you can be one, but the sheepdogs are going to hunt you down and you will never have rest, safety, trust or love. But if you want to be a sheepdog and walk the warrior’s path, then you must make a conscious and moral decision every day to dedicate, equip and prepare yourself to thrive in that toxic, corrosive moment when the wolf comes knocking at the door.
We do not call for gifts or freedoms beyond our lot. We just need a small pat on the head, a smile and a thank you to fill the emotional tank which is drained protecting the sheep. And when our number is called by the Almighty, and day retreats into night, a small prayer before the heavens just may be in order to say thanks for letting you continue to be a sheep. And be grateful for the thousands, millions of American sheepdogs who permit you the freedom to express even bad ideas.John 15:13 Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.
Philippians 1:21 For to me, to live is Christ and to die is gain.
“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force: Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.”
– Patrick Henry
The lesson here is simple. The federal government was delegated certain enumerated powers from the people of the several states. Everything else is left to those states to decide for themselves. Whether they want school prayer, the death penalty, abortions, medical marijuana or machine guns.
