Our July 4th

This weekend is the Anniversary of the greatest Nation on Earth being created. It is the Anniversary of Freedom, in full force, being brought to the World. No Nation has ever been created like America. No idea like America had ever been thought of until the Founding Fathers came together and took the history and philosophies and came up with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Now we face an enemy that wishes to destroy that very ideal. Many enemies have tried to destroy it over time but this time it is from within. We face the Progressive enemy which wants to take our liberties from us and rule our lives. We are already seeing Congressmen acting like King George and laughing at the idea of actually following the Constitution and defending the American people.

234 years ago, our Founding Fathers came up with an idea so great that they thought it fit to risk their lives for. And they told the King exactly how sincere they were about it by stating the following:

"And for the support of this Declaration, with firm Reliance on the Protection of the divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."


We must do the same today. First, we must pray. Pray for our country, our government, and our candidates. Secondly, we must get involved. We must get involved in the campaigns as well as our government, local and federal. Thirdly, we must donate. Donate to those causes and campaigns you think are best for you and our country. And last, we must not be silent. We must go out there and tell people who we support and why.

This is our revolution. We are fighting the same oppressing power our founders did 234 years ago. But, because of their sacrifice we don't have to use violence. They gave us a system so that we would never have to do that again. They gave us safe guards. We fell asleep and allowed these Tyrannical officials into our government. But this year we will fix much of that. This year we are once again Declaring our Independence from Tyranny.

Arizona vs. Mexico

Today it came out that along with the DOJ's possible lawsuit against the Arizona Immigration Law, now Mexico is filing a lawsuit as well. Mexico is claiming that the law, "it has a legitimate interest in defending its citizens' rights and that Arizona's law would lead to racial profiling, hinder trade and tourism, and strain the countries' work on combating drug trafficking and related violence."

Mexican law requires law enforcement officials "to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country before attending to any issues." And before 2008, some officers would seek bribes to keep people out of jail. Yet they claim the Arizona law will lead to racial profiling. The lawsuit also says that, ""Mexican citizens will be afraid to visit Arizona for work or pleasure out of concern that they will be subject to unlawful police scrutiny and detention."

Arizona's law reads much like the federal law and Mexico's, which is more strict. But just like the day that Mexican President Felipe Calderon had a joint session of OUR Congress, no one in DC stands up for Arizona. Many states are in support of Arizona's new law and are looking to have similar legislation in their states.

Governor Jan Brewer is fighting on not just against the Federal Government but now against a Foreign one. But both fail to see the fleeing of the illegal immigrants after the law was passed. Both fail to look in the dictionary at the word ILLEGAL.

For over 100 years our Federal Government has done illegal acts and now once again they are doing. They have done it for so long that they see nothing wrong with it. But illegal is illegal, no matter how long you've done it. But if you wish to continue, I'm sure we can get you a prize. A nice room with bars, free cable, and 3 meals a day.

The Challenge

As the Obama Administration has been saying, the Department of Justice will be suing Arizona over its Illegal Immigration Law. A law which follows the Federal law pretty much word for word. As the Constitution says in Article VI, Provision II:

"The Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof... shall be the supreme law of the land..."


But when the Federal government fails to follow the Constitution and protect the states, it's up to the states to take action. The Federal government does have to defend the states as stated in Article IV, Sec. 4:

"The United States shall guarantee to every state in the union a republican form of government, and shall protect each of them against invasion; and on application of the legislature, or of the executive (when the legislature cannot be convened) against domestic violence."


Arizona has asked the Feds continually for military assistance and the Feds would simply ignore their cry for help. Arizona and many other states along the border are being invaded by illegal immigrants. In fact, the Feds just gave an 80 mile strip of Arizona to Mexico by putting up signs around it saying not to enter because it's dangerous do to the drug war.

Because of Arizona's action, many other states are planning on making legislation very much like Arizona's.

Our Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution believing that the We the People would stay awake and keep the Feds in check. But we failed on that part and now we have a Progressive Congress and White House. But we can change much of that with this year's votes. We must protect our states from enemies both foreign and domestic.

The Real Crisis

As an oil spill is happening in the gulf, Vice President Biden and Chief of Staff Emanuel were having a beach party and playing with water guns. Meanwhile the economy is going down and Americans are being subject to an oppressive government. We've seen a response to "crisis" much like that of Biden and Emanuel throughout these 2 years.

They said that we were out of the worst of the recession yet the DOW continues to fall along with the employment rate. They say that over 400,000 temporary government jobs is the economy coming back up. They also say that they were on the oil spill the very first day. But, the economy is still bad and the oil spill is still happening as a result of government interference.

Now, BP is to blame for the oil spill, but the reason for it taking so long to clean up can be blamed partly on the government. It took 3 days for the President to approve the "Top Kill" operation after saying they should and have acted quickly. BP has offered many solutions but the Administration and EPA say that they are not environmentally sound and to try something else. I guess according to them that the oil in the ocean is safer than a solution to clean it up.

Through these 2 years, America has been through many stupid reactions, speeches, comments, actions, and so-called logic from Obama and his cronies. And for those 2 years, Americans have clearly shown their objection to the stupidity coming out of DC, but DC pretends to not listen. Well, this year is the year to really make it loud. We are going to make them deaf by our votes.

There are those in DC who do understand America's anger and will to get back to our founding ideals. We have seen them through these 2 years and with our movement we have given them the support of knowing that we do care and we are watching. So the comment we need to give DC this year and simply the following:

"Dear DC,

We are tired of the corruption and stupidity you have given us. We stepped away for a long time while our grandparents sat and wondered what was going on in our country. We allowed you to destroy it and put Progressive ideals into our schools and people. Well, we are back to tell you that we are awake and we have return to take our country back. We want to thank you for watching it in our absence but we've realised we never should have left it you or anyone else in the first place. We are here to tell you the founders were right and that we will be going back to their ideals, not yours. So, please take a hike, and never come back.

Signed,

Forever, We The People"

Our Revolution

Many people I have seen and spoken to ask when is the time to rise. And the only real answer is, you will know when. But the real-time for us to rise is during the Primaries and in November. If ever there was to be a Revolution like that in the late 1700's, it will be this year. Not with weapons or with violence but with a vote. A vote heard round the world.

I urge you to do what you may have never done before, research. Research the candidates, the current issues, the ideals, and the status quo. Don't take people's word for it, go and see for yourself. I do this with anyone who puts information out. There are times it can be hard but the information is out there and it is up to us to find it.

If we no longer want what DC is putting out, we have to research the candidates and find out who is closest to the founding ideals. We can no longer go blindly to the poll and vote for whose name we know or who looks the best. We have to choose who will not be a politician but who will best represent us. Not someone who will fall to special interest groups. As Ronald Reagan said, "The special interest group we should be listening to is The People."

It will be no easy task to go up against a power that has been 100 years and running. But in this 2 year period, we have given them a run for their money that they have never seen the likes of.

And now not only do they have We The People going against them, but the radicals they have been working with. The Progressives go step by step while the radicals want the full nine yards. Now the radicals are angry because they aren't getting what they were promised. "United we stand, divided we fall". We can not eat our own. We may not agree on everything but we must unite on what we do believe in.

And so, before you go to the election booth this year. Know what's going to be on that ballot. Know the issues and the candidates. And when you do, share that knowledge with your friends and other people. But urge them to go and look for themselves like you did. This year is our revolution. This year we tell DC, "DON'T TREAD ON ME".

Conservatism Today

The following is from Kyle Caparella from The American Youth on every Saturday night at 8 ET to 10 ET on Windows to Liberty.


Abstract
Much of the mainstream media today will portray conservatives and the concepts of conservatism to be outdated, racist, and “the party of no”. Without discussing the principles, morals, and values of conservatism popular media has painted a picture so far from true standing that has caused many to misunderstand the reasoning and logic behind conservatism. There is no realization of the toils of our founding fathers. They made it their main focus to insure the protection of individual liberties by a limited federal government, and lately it seems that these ideals are being tossed away in hopes for a quick fix to our economic problems. These quick fixes are no newer a concept than sliced bread and never work the way they are intended, but still there is a huge push by mainstream media for these failed ideas. By using influential members of society and pushing the rhetoric of “common good” into our everyday lives the media has mislead many honest Americans into believing that they are really doing what is best for them by doing what is best for the community; neglecting completely the foundation of our country and what makes us unique from the rest of the world. This being our individualism.



Conservatism Today
Kyle Caparella

Conservatism is about believing in the principles and values on which this country was founded. These principles are rooted in our inalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, and not an unlimited government to normalize every aspect of our lives. The concepts of life and liberty are fairly well known, but the pursuit of happiness phrase is widely misunderstood. The government doesn’t guarantee you happiness, but rather guarantees that each of us has the right to pursue whatever happiness we please, as long as we do not to infringe upon the rights of others. Our founding fathers believed so strongly in individualism that they placed the rights of the individual above the rights of the society. Conservatism calls for a return to our Constitution and the way our founding fathers intended for our nation; a small, limited government based around protecting individual liberties. With much of the mainstream media negatively portraying conservatives as careless and out dated it is easy to fall prey to the “hip-ness” of liberalism and forget the foundation of conservatism is vested in the rights of the people, protected by our Constitution.

Our country was founded on a basis of individual freedom and individual responsibility; you can live your life the way you choose, but you also have to take responsibility for your life, your choices, and pay the consequences of these choices. It is not the responsibility of the government to protect you from bad choices, ignorance, or poor judgment. That is for you to decide. It is also not the up to the government to provide you with necessities like shelter, food, medical care, or employment. All of that, again, is your responsibility. By the same token, the government does not have the right to take away what is rightfully yours to provide for others.

Essential to understanding individual freedom is the idea of private property.
The fruits of your labor, your mind, talents, and skills belong only to you. You can choose to share what’s yours with anyone you would like, but that is up to you. It’s not the government’s decision to take what you’ve earned and redistribute it to others. Our founding fathers realized that in order to maintain individual freedom, the powers of the federal government must be restricted. By our Constitution the only valid role of the government is to protect your rights from being infringed upon by others. On a local level that means law enforcement and criminal justice. In a national scope that means a strong military force.

The cornerstone of a free society is the free market system. A lot of people instantly confuse a free market with corporations and big businesses, but that is incorrect. A free market system simply means that every act of the business is entered by free will of the involved parties. No coercive action is to occur; therefore a free market transaction is always win-win because if either party feels they aren’t getting value for the transaction, they can walk away from it. When subsidies, tariffs, and other regulatory constraints are placed on the free market the free will of people to choose how to spend their earnings is ignored with the understanding that government knows what’s best for us.

The Constitution of the United States of America was written and signed September 17, 1787, but was not ratified until 1788, when it replaced the Articles of Confederation, which were found ineffective as they could only suggest action from the states. A sense of potential disaster due to a lack of a strong, but limited, federal government encouraged the formation of the Constitutional Convention, which began debating possibilities on May 25, 1787. After four months of secret discussions and many compromises, they had come up with a proposal for the states.

The vote was close in some states, mainly due to the lack of a bill of rights, but eventually the Constitution was ratified as the new federal government of the United States of America. The call for a bill of rights was loud and clear; there was a demand for a more succinct Constitution, one that the right of the people and restrictions of governmental power were clearly stated. James Madison wrote, on October 17, 1788 that such “fundamental maxims of free Government” would be “a good ground for an appeal to the sense of community” against potential oppression and would “counteract the impulses of interest and passion.” It is said that Madison’s support for the bill of rights was critically important. As one of the new representatives in the First Federal Congress, as established by the Constitution, he worked diligently to sway the House to pass the amendments; in turn smoothing out any opposition to the Constitution as it was. By December 15, 1791, three-fourths of the states had ratified the ten amendments, now familiar to Americans as the “Bill of Rights”.

Our current system is not as it was intended by our Founding Fathers. Over time it has been perverted into an atrocity of federal power, and has created an entitlement mentality due to welfare hand-outs and government bailouts a plenty. Think welfare works? Picture this analogy; a man and a woman decide to put out a bird feeder in their back yard. They were delighted to see all the birds flock to their feeder, but over time more and more birds came around. Soon their back yard was littered with droppings and they had to buy more food to feed more birds. It got to the point where the birds started attacking them when they were bringing the food. Eventually they took the bird feeder down and stopped feeding the birds, and after a while there were no more birds attacking them or littering their yards with droppings. There is nothing wrong with giving a hand-up, but there is a big problem with giving a hand-out. How many times have you heard those on Welfare or other social programs complain, “You owe me”?

Implemented over time by Presidents such as Franklin D. Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson, social programs have defied our founding principles by making the government responsible for the lives of many individuals; giving food, shelter, employment, and other necessities. For many it becomes a lifestyle. We must remember that our nation is based upon individual liberties, and with that comes great responsibility. We are responsible for our own lives; therefore, while the intentions of social programs may be warm and fuzzy, by our founding documents it is our own responsibility to provide these things for ourselves and our dependents, not the duty of the government. People become dependent on government for their necessities, and in turn lose their freedoms.
Our founding fathers laid forth a foundation that, over many years, has been eroded and withered away by good intentions for the “common good”. But what has failed to be realized by many is that the basis of our whole culture teeters on the rights of the individual. The concept of redistributing wealth goes against your right to private property. Your earnings belong to you and you alone. You are the sole keeper and decider of what you do with your possessions, and the government does not have the right to take that away. A conservative believes in, and lives by, the principles of limited government, personal responsibility, and moral values; the core principles of our Constitution and other founding documents. Much of the media today doesn’t take the time to discuss what conservatism is really about, as they would much rather bash those who are doing everything they can to hold onto what little freedom they have left. It’s no wonder why “hope” and “change” are such inspiring and moving words in today’s day and age. We have strayed so far from our intentional path that we do need some change. But the change we need is change back to the founding principles found in our Constitution and the morals found in the Bible.

When the World Condemns

In the World today, there is a state and a country that are both under fire by the World and the United States. The state is Arizona and the country is Israel. Arizona is under fire from Mexico, China, and the US for its Illegal Immigration Law. It's been called an act against human and civil rights. Israel is being condemned by everyone even its long-standing ally, the US. It's "crime", boarding a ship that was attempting to break through a barricade after refusing to be searched.

Both have the rights to defend their land. And both have done so without any doubts that they are doing what is right and what everyone else would do under the same situation. But both are being condemned by the Progressives, Communist, Socialist, Fascist, and Global elite of the world.

In the case of Israel, it seems the world has forgotten that the Islamic extremist and much of the Muslim world has said that the Jews should die. The world has forgotten that this was once tried by Nazi Germany. They also forget that every power that has gone against the Jews has fallen. Ancient Egypt, the Roman Empire, Nazi Germany, and the Soviet Union have all fallen as a result of their targeting of the Jews. Now the US is turning it's back on the Jewish Nation and all Jews of the world and as a result, we are in a failing economy and everyday our rights are infringed on.

President Obama does not stand up for Israel but for the terrorist that his Administration say do not exist. He doesn't stand up for the state rights of Arizona but instead says he takes no sides but continues to find a way to bring a legal case against Arizona. My message to Israel is simple. President Obama may say he is speaking on behalf of the American People but he is not. We do not like the way he is treating you and your nation. We do not support Hamas. We stand behind you, the chosen people of God.

We have to get back to our roots. Our Founders used much of the system that the Israelites had come up with. Thomas Jefferson even submitted a Seal for the US that had the ties to the story of Moses and the Anglo Saxons. We can not turn our back on history or the Jewish Nation. If we do, we will fall much like the ancient powers and then we will be the ones condemned.
