“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

Site Philosophy

Welcome to The Patriot Sheepdog. Although that is the name of this site and is sometimes a reference to this author, it goes beyond a screen name, designation, or the title of a website. It is an mindset/outlook, a commitment, and a choice that must be made by each individual. However, before you can make that commitment, you must first know to what you are committing. This page is your starting point in your exploration. This site's primary purpose is to combat apathy, educate Americans as to their rights and responsibilities as citizens, and highlight news and views that provoke thought through articles, videos, and media. The Patriot Sheepdog transcends just the name of this site, or the identity of one person. Rather, it is an outlook that is adopted and adhered to by individuals who identify with the characteristics of a patriot and a sheepdog. However, before one can adopt such a viewpoint, understanding what makes a patriot sheepdog is necessary. This site is the starting point for such exploration, as well as an evolving reference point for fundamental American principles and values, and thought-provoking content, and the courageous search for the truth, where ever it may lead.
"Education is cheap defense of nations." - Edmund Burke
1. The Patriot Sheepdog does NOT endorse any political parties, but rather promotes the adherence and return to the principles of freedom and liberty, contained within our Founding Documents and Charters of Liberty, as our Founders intended.
"Those who do not learn from history are condemned to repeat it." - George Santayana
2. The Patriot Sheepdog promotes a Christian conservative approach to one's life through self-sufficiency, crisis planning, and trust in God. Because a planned-for crisis is not unexpected. As well, The Patriot Sheepdog promotes the consistent application of vigilance through the lens of the 'Sheepdog Outlook' by protecting "sheep" against all "wolves," foreign and domestic. (For more information on this mindset, see: On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheepdogs, by Lt. Col. (Ret.) Dave Grossman). True sheepdogs defend the truth and even the sheep who reject it.
"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
3. The Patriot Sheepdog promotes the diligence of honest questioning in search for the truth, in order to protect fellow Americans from the slipping into the slumber of apathy by featuring stories, posts, articles, videos, opinions, discussions, and links that provoke thought and action.
"Truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is." - Winston Churchill
The Patriot Sheepdog provides a starting point to facilitate the search for truth, the development of vigilance in protection of each other from apathy and crisis, and what is needed to preserve and restore American freedom (as our Founders intended). Because our freedom is not free, and our Republic requires the vigilant effort of American Patriots to preserve it!
"The price of liberty is eternal vigilance." - Thomas Jefferson
