American Revolution III
by Hellesponte & Kerodin
October 1, 2010

There have been two American Revolutionary Wars.

In the first, Liberty won the field and our Constitution was set in place.  Innate Liberties of Man were recognized as inviolate.  In the second, Mr. Lincoln and Slavery won the field, dismissing the Constitution as the true framework for governance in the republic.  Subjugation of the entire population was now the operating principle of Government.

Of course, the Constitutional ideals as set forth by Jefferson and Madison were under assault before the ink was dry.  Just eleven years after Rhode Island signed off, Marbury vs. Madison was ground taken by those who would be our Masters in their unending war to be rid of the limits imposed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. 

Today the republic is well into our third genuine revolution.  At this moment it is a Cold War, though the temperature is at that place just a single moment before the pot boils.

The forces at odds today in America lead one to the conclusion that the American Revolution III will, through the lens of historical review, place Lincoln's war upon the States in the league of a lively debate at a ladies social.  In the history of wars that have seen Countrymen fighting one another, American Revolution III is destined to be epic.

The lines of conflict are starkly evident: Those who believe that personal Liberty is the natural right of Man, and those who believe that the individual must yield to the power of the Collective.  For convenience, we label the sides as Left and Right.

Americans at either end of the political spectrum have self-identified to which philosophy they ascribe.  There are still masses in the middle who have yet to consciously take a side.  Many remain confused, though all have their pre-dispositions.  Many avoid taking any decisive position, hoping it will all just go away and that Nirvana will befall us all.  Every day, more and more Americans are forced to abandon the uncertainty of the middle and take their place in one group or another.

The economy is the driving force that will lead America to blows.  The final economic bubble is being inflated as the Fed pumps useless paper to those forces who buy stocks, leading to the oxymoron of an expanding stock market while most other economic indicators fall or remain suppressed.  When this final bubble bursts, a spiraling economic crash will be unavoidable, and global.

Economic reality will likely be the trigger that leads to First Blood.  The American Revolution III will go hot as soon as the first minions of the Left don't get their monthly hand-out from the Political Class.  Government will wield a heavy hand, Patriots will cut the hand off, and it's on...

These will be the most vulnerable moments in the history of the republic.  Our foreign enemies may sense the time has come to strike.  Our current Political Class will have no incentive to pull the nuclear trigger to keep our enemies at bay, as they are philosophically aligned with the Leftists of the world who would come to conquer us.  One can only hope that there are Warriors in our military who will act for the benefit of the republic in such circumstances, when our Leaders will not...

On the ground across the nation, in cities and suburbs and out to our farms and ranches, it is reasonable to conclude that the battle between Patriots and the Left will be a fight to the death.  Unlike our prior revolutions, where in the first we had a foreign enemy and in the second the forces for Liberty did not have a reasonable understanding of just how bad a life of Collectivism truly would become and were loathe to kill their Countrymen in a manner consistent with the realities of Total War, today the forces of Liberty will have few moral hindrances. 

Patriots today understand clearly what the Left intends for our lives.  Many have also concluded that, whether you were born in America or not, if you seek to impose Collectivism upon the nation, you are not truly American, and you are a justifiable target.  Collectivism has brought the republic to the ruinous state that we have today, and Collectivism is the enemy to be destroyed.

The moral considerations are simple: If Collectivists retain power, individual Liberty will be lost for generations.  If you believe that Liberty is of such value that Collectivism is not an option, then the rules of war become secondary to victory.  While most Americans have an innate moral compass that would preclude atrocities as seen in most wars, absolute victory will be the order of the day. 

But the ugly truth is simple: If you are in a fight for your life, there are no rules.  Win, or die.

These are not my rules.  Mother Nature wrote these rules.

Hate the game, not the player...

It is the Left that has brought us to this point, through their arrogant insistence that we conform to their rules of life.  It is the policies of Collectivists (Liberals, Democrats and Republicans) that have ruined our economy and brought poverty roaring back to life in the most productive nation on the planet.  It is the Left and their allies in the Political Class who send armed men to enforce their diktats.

A deathfight will likely determine how the next chapter in the Story of America will read.

None of these realities permit the Patriot to draw First Blood.  The moral high ground belongs to he who strikes in self defense.  Nor do these realities justify any Patriot who abdicates the responsibility to go to the polls and vote.  These realities do not give the Patriot license to withdraw from the civics of life in America. 

Just because you conclude that a hot war is inevitable, there is no moral justification to lay aside the tools of society that were set in place as an alternate means to violence.  If you quote Jefferson and the tree of liberty as you clean your tricked black rifle, while turning your back on the mechanisms of peaceful governance, such as voting, you cede every moral right to justifiable revolution.

If you do not vote and you advocate violence in the name of Liberty, you are not a Patriot, you are a thug.  Right wing thugs aspire to fascism.  Left wing thugs aspire to the stations of Mao & Stalin.  Real Patriots have little use for thugs...thugs are simply one more target on the list.

Real Patriots pay more than lip service to the Constitution.

While generations of Leftist creep can not be rolled back in a single election, there is a very real case to be made that the tools of the Constitution remain viable.  Voting is a tool of the Constitution, and it appears that across the nation a significant portion of our Countrymen intend to use this tool to be rid of those who would be Masters. 

While Scott Brown is no Jefferson, neither is he another Ted Kennedy!  This election cycle even Barney Frank is watching his rear as he rarely bothers...

The point is this: Vote for your principles.  If your candidates do not reflect your principles, then you run.  Exercise your First Amendment rights in more places than the comment rolls of blogs.  Go to your City, County and State political events and rattle cages.  Anyone who objectively considers the state of the republic today must conclude that it is because Patriots have not fully exercised the Rights and tools of the Constitution that we are at this crossroads.  The Left has used the tools, and perverted a few, but Patriots have not bothered to stop them at the ballot box!

If these tools of the Constitution fail to prevent a conquest by Collectivists, then you still have the tool of the Second Amendment at your disposal.  But the Second Amendment must not be the first recourse...under most circumstances. 

If an economic collapse short-circuits many of the philosophical considerations put forth above and negates the need for several election cycles to eradicate the Collectivists from elected office, would you not rather be a Patriot in the twilight of his years who is able to look at the youngest members of the family and honestly say that you voted and used the system right up until the very last moment, when you had no choice remaining but to pick up your rifle? 

Consider this my Get out the Vote moment...even if American Revolution III starts tomorrow.

Excerpt: There comes a time when civility is no longer appropriate as the only option on the table.  Dare we not offend the sensibilities of Liberals, Socialists, and Communists in our midst who are ruining and destroying our republic?  Are we to cower and sheepishly genuflect when we are scolded for the tone or choice of our words in the face of ruin, poverty, tyranny, and death?!

Are we so frightened of chastisement from insignificant men and women of the political Left with stained and darkened souls that we turn from our duties of Patriotism and shun our sacred obligation to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America?  We ask you, is not our republic worth the risk of being castigated?  Is the soul of our mighty nation no longer worthy of our fortunes, our lives, and our Sacred Honor?  Have we lost so much of our heritage, our courage, our mettle, and grit that we will stand idly by and permit the foolish and the stupid, who work hand-in-hand with evil people in our nation, that we will permit them to send us into eternal slavery and tyranny as the world has never before witnessed?

Excerpt: You are a fool if you do not believe that elements of the Left would use force, if they could, to compel you to comply with many of their edicts.  In drafting healthcare reform, they use the threat of financial fines, felony conviction and prison if you refuse to buy health insurance! 

How is that not only a degree or two removed from a pistol to the head? We are undeniably heading toward the same tyrannies known to Russians, Germans, and the Chinese.  It starts with Liberalism, advances to Socialism, and ends with Fascism, Communism, or some other tyranny…and death.

Excerpt: We have a culture of people whose first response to a physical threat is to dial 911, or worse, a lawyer.  We have a nation of people who will dump hot coffee on themselves, then sue the restaurant – and win!  We have a nation of educators who suspend children for drawing a picture of a handgun or for bringing a Boy Scout knife-and-fork kit to show and tell! 

We have a nation of people so removed from the food chain that many would starve to death if the local supermarket closed.  We have a nation of people who cannot truly grasp the hardships faced by most of the people in the world every day, and as a result we have a nation of people who have lost fundamental common sense.

Excerpt: The Bill of Rights articulates the natural rights of man, rights that are not bestowed by government, but rights that are innately ours as human beings.  These rights may not be taken from us.  These rights were written in plain language so that no clever interpretation and manipulation of the intent was possible.  These rights may not be restricted, narrowed, or infringed.  Any attempt to do so is a violation of the relationship between Man and Creator. 

Every narrowing, restriction, infringement, and clever interpretation imposed upon us in the years since our Constitution was ratified is simply a violation of our natural rights.

We hold that every violation of the Constitution and Bill of Rights by those in Government is an act of Treason, as these violations are unjust, undermining the fundamental foundations of our republic, breaking the pact between citizen and government, and desecrating the relationship between Man and Creator.  Any man or woman who enforces these unconstitutional laws on behalf of government is a treasonous soul and an enemy of Liberty and humanity.

Mike at Sipsey Street came up with the outstanding idea to place the above stickers out in the world.  As a shot across the bow to the Political Class, I can't think of a better method of warning those who would be our Masters that peril lies upon their chosen path.

Print them on Avery weatherproof shipping labels and get them out into your community.  This brilliant concept conveys all the power of a thousand-yard stare without the risk of immediate conflict.

We formatted the above image to fit on weatherproof labels - so click on the image and print it off onto a few sheets of Avery 5526 labels, then go to work!  We stretched the image a bit for the best fit.

"Liberalism, and Liberals, are ruinous to the republic, and must be marginalized if America is to survive.  Patriots must step to this challenge and risk the wrath of the Politically Correct, and do the work that must be done to honor our Fathers.  Liberals must be stopped, at any cost." - Kerodin

"No, I apologize for nothing.  I know the truth, regardless of what may be in the press.  I know that when I stand before Saint Peter, I will be granted passage.  If I am ever granted audience with God, I have nothing to fear.  I have lived the life He chose for me, and I still have much work to do..." - Kerodin

"No man looks forward into life when young and can imagine for himself the life I have lived.  But I am better for it.  I have been places never anticipated.  I have had experiences never dreamed.  I have met people who would have never otherwise been in my social or professional circle.  I have, many times, leaned upon the words of Winston Churchill - 'When you are going through Hell, keep going!'" - Kerodin

My family continues to promote my values where I can not.  They are Patriots.  If you ever meet my wife, you will meet the most loyal wife and Patriot in America.  She is brave, brilliant, and bold.  We fight Liberal stupidity together through the First Amendment.  Laws change - and one day I will stand with her again in the Second Amendment fight that she carries on when I must stand aside."  - Kerodin

Current political leaders are only the face of the problem confronting America today.  The underlying cancer eating the American Soul is Liberalism.  But for your Liberal neighbors, Liberal politicians would never be elected to office.

It is not sufficient to simply defeat Liberal politicians at the polls.  Liberalism must be defeated in our society and Liberals must be marginalized, or this disease will kill the republic.

Every patriotic business owner should immediately fire every Liberal on staff and hire an employee who respects the nation and our Constitution.  Why should any business owner suffer an employee who will simply vote for politicians who further ruin the company?!

The Liberals in your community must be ostracized and denied entry into your social circle.  These stupid people are responsible for the insanity that affects everything from your property taxes to the curriculum taught to your children.  Why would you break bread with them, when they are the reason your bread costs too much?  Why would any parent permit them access to their children, when they are responsible for ruining your child's future?


This book may not be for you.

If you consider yourself to be a Liberal or Progressive, go away. You are not permitted to buy this book. This book is written by patriotic Americans for patriotic Americans. This is a discussion among ourselves, and if you are a Liberal politician or you vote for Liberal politicians,
(Of the genus Stupidus Liberalis)  you are not invited to participate.

First, we will demonstrate that all politicians, judges, and government employees at the Local, State, and Federal levels who support federal Healthcare Reform, the Assault Weapons Ban, TARP, Stimulus I, Free Trade Agreements, PATRIOT Act, the new “Jobs” bill, or a host of other such Federal programs or initiatives, are guilty of Treason against the United States of America.

Secondly, businesses, multi-national corporations and special interest groups that support Liberal politicians and/or Liberal programs, Cap & Trade, Global Warming legislation, et cetera, are committing Treason against the United States of America.

Finally, we will demonstrate that those private Citizens who support or vote for any of these politicians—once the nature of the politician is known to the public—or programs are equally guilty of Treason by knowingly lending material aid and support to a Traitor.

Excerpt: The five most expensive parts of our national budget are:

1.      Social Security

2.      Medicare

3.      Medicaid

4.      Defense

5.      Interest on the National Debt

Numbers 1, 2 and 3 are wholly unconstitutional and brought to us by Liberals. 

Number 5 is wholly a result of numbers 1, 2 and 3!
