In America, the institutions of government are formed and tolerated
by the People, You and Me,
for the sole purpose of protecting and preserving
the inherent and individual rights and liberty
of their founders, the People, and us, their Posterity.
We are the first society of recorded history
to achieve Self Governance
by establishing and maintaining
the Sovereign Powers for Governing
in the hands of the Individuals
of our society.
The tasks of governing are lawfully performed
only when individual rights
of life, liberty and property are aggressively defended.
When we tolerate the sacrifice of individual liberty
to the convenience of government or the interests of society,
Liberty, Freedom and Security are forfeited by all.
In a managed society, no one can be safe
in their body, their property, their liberty or their ambition
from manipulation and sacrifice to the will of the powerful.
We are experiencing a period of epochal transformation
of our society and our relationships
with the people of our government
and the powers which now are exercised over us
between continents and peoples.
Sheriffhenry is a source for education
and of encouragement to maintain
the Inherent Rights and Liberty
of the Free Men and Women of America
and the Free Society we have created.
I believe that we are at the extreme limit
of our ability to survive as a Free People
and that our third war for liberty
is imminent and unavoidable.
If YOU refuse to participate
in the restoration of our Republic and our Liberty,
I must repeat the words of those who bought our Liberty
by the sacrifice of their lives, blood, families and fortune:
“If ye love wealth greater than Liberty,
the tranquility of servitude greater
than the animating contest for freedom,
go home from us in peace.
We seek not your counsel, nor your arms.
Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you;
and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
-- Samuel Adams
It may sound harsh and unfair, but I concur with Mr. Adams.
I join our modern quandry with that of 1776
using the clear statement of intent by Patrick Henry:
For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost,
I am willing to know the whole truth;
to know the worst, and to provide for it.
Why stand we here idle?
Is life so dear, or peace so sweet,
as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?
Forbid it, Almighty God!
I know not what course others may take;
but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
-- Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775
We must fight.
Whether with pen and persuasion, as we are now engaged,
or with whatever dreadful means are required
if our good will and good sense fail to persuade.
We cannot tolerate rebellion among our govenrment
or betrayal by the submission to tyrants.
