Start here:

I know we don't all have 2 hours to spend watching this, but if you have sat down to any feature length film in the last month you can make the time! And, Please do!!! Your future (and mine) may depend on it.

"We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren [tyrannical government] till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? 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." ~Patrick Henry

What would America's founders do?
Answer: Fight!
"If we wish to be free — if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending — if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained — we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!" Patrick Henry

We are expected to fight for the freedoms they gave us. Not always with sword and spear and javelin, but in word and deed and surely VOTE!

Read the Declaration of Independence and you will see that they put into it:
"That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. "

"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 all must hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately." ~ Ben Franklin ~at the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

What course will you take?
