While many Komrades who believe all the propaganda from the current regime, who I refer to as AmeriKKans, will be celebrating the 4th of July in the usual way, there are those of us who can see, bear witness to, through our knowledge and history, see that the gathering storm is now upon us, attempting to crush those of us who cherish true freedom and liberty as set forth by the Founding Fathers through our Constitution, Declaration of Independence and the Bill Of Rights.

It seems to me that no matter what, we continue down the path to the complete loss of all Individual Liberty in the United States of America. I actually, literally cry in my observance of the death of Liberty. I sit alone in the quiet of my study and do my utmost to understand why, why are the American people seemingly so willing to just watch, and in some cases, embrace the death of Liberty.
The greatest possession a human being owns is Liberty. For two hundred years we in America have been blessed with our God given Liberty. It has now become the most abused, neglected and ignored possession we own. The men who founded our nation, did so upon the belief that governments primary purpose was to protect and defend Liberty.
The actual founding was the establishment of a Federal government and it's ruling Constitution and Bill of Rights. Benjamin Franklin realized and understood that the only thing which could preserve it, or lose it, was the people themselves. That understanding was evident in his reply to a reporter when asked upon his emergence from the Constitutional Convention, "What have you done in there?" "We have given you a Republic, if YOU can keep it." I would ask you to now stop reading and sit back in your chair, close your eyes and think deeply about his answer.
From that founding moment, the struggle between the governments authority and the citizens right to Individual Liberty has never stopped. Over the course of time in that struggle, we have allowed Individual Liberty to be sacrificed on the altar of government provision and entitlements. We have now placed ourselves in a position where the Liberty our founders envisioned and gave us is barely recognizable. And through the currant leadership of Barack Obama and others, we are on the precipice, teetering on the edge of losing what little Liberty we have left.
A good friend and I were having a conversation about this very subject the other day and I want to share with you her accurate and meaningful words to me.
"We grew up in a time of great patriotism. I was concerned about the Vietnam War, which never should have happened." "Part of our generation rebelled against authority and ultimately formed the New Left, which has finally come into it's own. The Supreme Court began watering down the Constitution giving more rights to criminals, invalidating victims and set out to remove God from our institutions. We witnessed it and yet felt helpless to do anything about it."
"John, it is spinning out of control. We don't have that many years left, which I'm glad of, but what are we leaving our children and grandchildren?" "THEY ARE THE ONES TOO PREOCCUPIED TO NOTICE." "I tried to tell my children...both think I'm paranoid. They do not believe...will not accept...what is happening."
My dear, dear friends, for two hundred years we have allowed the government to bring us to the teetering edge of losing our Liberty and entering a life of bondage. We must begin pulling ourselves back from the deep, dark cavern of slavery to the government. We are not losing our Liberty from one huge chop of an ax, but the slices of a thousand cuts of the sharp razor of Socialism. Someone said, "Government has sliced away for generations at Liberty all under the guise of a paternal mentality of "providing for" the average citizen."
Even if we can take it back, it will not be done overnight, but we must begin. If we don't, I harbor a great fear that we will not "keep it."
Please forward to all you wish.
Until next time, may God bless and keep you.
