A Little Thing Called FAITH

Another opportunity to watch Glenn Beck – with David Barton (WallBuilders) and Ira Stoll (Author of “A Life”) – leads to inspirational thoughts for lovers of liberty.

How in the world did I major in Political Science and not know more about my own country? A closer look at the “Father of the American Revolution”, Samuel Adams, will lead you to see how far away from our founding principles we are – as individuals, communities, and a country.

As the American Revolution was taking place, there were many instances when these brave folks fighting for liberty questioned what they were doing.  There was even dissent from people in this country (people who did not want to be “free”), and there were many battles lost before having any chance at succeeding.

However, these people had faith.  They believed that the plight of liberty and of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS, and that these superseded their own well-being.  They were willing to sacrifice their lives for their liberty and the liberty of future citizens.

If we could go back, if we could take back our representatives and our country, we could likely simplify the mecca of  bureaucracy that is leading to our enslavement to a political and economic system that will no longer allow for individuals to act for themselves in a market that is free.

And what should we do?  We have many battles that we are all fighting, in our own lives, professions, and communities.  We must keep questioning, fighting, and standing up for the principles this country was built upon.  And really, to do this effectively, one must have faith.  It is all we have at the end of the day.

WALLBUILDERS – Know Your History

In an interesting interview with Glenn Beck, founder of WallBuilders, David Barton, discussed the “Black Regiment” which later became known as the “Black Robe Brigade”.  We’ll give you the links, so that you can read at-length, however the conclusion of his conversation with Beck is what is so important to remember.

Our country was built upon the concept of INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS.  This is very different from COLLECTIVE RIGHTS.  Individual rights allow for individuals to have freedom to do what they like, as long as they are not hurting anyone else.  Collective rights, as we are witnessing more and more, can quickly tromp the rights of the individual for the rights of “the greater good”.

Although Americans, in general, are kind and giving people who really DO care about the collective (and take care of the collective using a free market and paying certain taxes), that does not mean in any way shape or form should be be forced into taking care of the collective.

Individual rights are considered God-given rights that each of us has to take care of our body, mind, and spirit.  When these are taken away, be become slaves to a system – probably one of governance.

Know your history, be a patriot, and stand up for this great country and the principles she was founded upon.
