Thoughts on the First “Presidency” of the Post-American Republic

America has come full circle. Before 1776, the government was the individual’s adversary. After the Declaration of Independence and later the Bill of Rights, the government became the champion of the individual–his rights to life, liberty, property and the pursuit of happiness. This was the theory, and often the practice. The sovereignty of the individual was the gold standard not just of government, but of a culture that embraced and cherished freedom and happiness. Now, both the theory and the practice are gone. Look at those loathsome, sneering sociopaths with the power they never could have obtained in a better society. They are your adversaries, now and until a similar transformation such as that of 1776-1787 recurs, if and when it ever does. We are honored to have known the rare burst of freedom that America once was; even if we only knew that glorious freedom in its twilight.

Be FOR individualism; not socialism.
Be FOR freedom; not totalitarianism.
Be FOR rationality; not warped “wokeness”.
Be FOR a strong defense; not wars to keep defense contractors happy.
Be FOR capitalism — unhampered, free market capitalism; not big business benefitted by lockdowns at the expense of small business.
Be FOR freedom of speech; and the more they tell you to shut up, the more loudly you should say: GO TO HELL.
Stand for what’s good, and true. That’s the best way to defeat evil. Just let it wither.

If the federal government will not enforce individual rights, we will have to find STATES that will.

“The liberties of our country, the freedoms of our civil Constitution are worth defending at all hazards; it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have received them as a fair inheritance from our worthy ancestors. They purchased them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood. It will bring a mark of everlasting infamy on the present generation – enlightened as it is – if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle, or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of designing men.”
— Samuel Adams, American founder
