“I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country.……corporations have been enthroned and an era of corruption in high places will follow, And the money power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working on the prejudices of the people until all wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed.” --Abraham Lincoln, November 21, 1864

The Fourth of July. Old Glory. The Constitution. Founding Fathers. Republic. Freedom.


Nice words, right?

What do they mean? More importantly, what do they mean to you?

Unless they mean something, to you, they are as meaningless as your life probably is.

Words, without meaning, are just hollow noise. You can repeat them as much as you like, say in the Pledge of Allegiance (to the Flag, of the United States of America…..), but you are no better than a bad actor tossing out line after line in a play no one wants to pay to see anymore.

What has happened to this country? How can things have deteriorated so fast?

You happened.

If you have read parts one and two of Article One in this series, you know your feelings are not my concern. I write these word with the express purpose of shaking you up, so you will open your eyes to the world around you, so you can start being a part of the bigger picture solution, instead of being the perennial problem the rest of us have to clean-up after.

Because those opening words above don’t have any deeper meaning to you, you are personally responsible for dragging this once great nation into first, a social collapse, soon to be followed by combined economic and military collapse.

Then, from chaos, Order will arise.

Those opening words, along with others of equally great importance, will then truly cease to have any meaning for all of us, for a very long time to come. All because you and others like you, were too damn busy doing nothing important, to help stop it from happening in the first place.

You have put beer, sports, socializing and careers ahead of everything else, because you do not think you have any obligation to protect the future from reverting to the past. Yet there is not one of you who have not heard the saying, “History repeats itself,” or perhaps this version of the same thought, “Those who fail to understand history are doomed to repeat it.”

Est ist sehr gut deine fater ist nich zu veile “lazy,” uber du wilst leisen meine scbreiben heir und da Deutche Wehrmacht wilst haben “won WWII.”

I don’t really speak German and my butchering of that language above should prove it, but I present that point, in that way above, to make this point:

If your fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers had been as lazy then as you are now, this country would have lost World War Two and German Nazi’s would be running things and you would be reading this article in German, most likely printed on a hand-cranked printing press hidden away in some basement. Anyone caught with this type “subversive” information in their possession could expect to be shot on the spot.

But not to worry, your efforts are paying off. You are single handedly making sure that homegrown Nazi’s will be running this country soon. From chaos……Order.

Freedom is not free! It never has been.

It exists because there were brave people willing to pay the price, in blood if necessary, to secure it. Thomas Jefferson warned us early on that the “tree of Liberty will need to be watered with the blood of tyrants” from time to time. Of course he was presuming we would continue to care about that Liberty tree enough to water it at all.

To the point.

I am a politician. A reluctant one to be sure, but one none the less. I am risking not only my unimportant career by talking to you this way, I am risking my life as well. The folks running the show these days will humor an occasional elected individual who actually tries to make things better, at least for a while. But when someone who has actually won an elective office, at a State or local level, dares to speak-out, the vast machine goes to work.

First, you are approached by other State or local “leaders” who “talk to you.” The message they deliver is clear, “Don’t rock the boat” and you can keep playing the game and keep getting your perks and/or paycheck.

Next, if you really are a true believer in “Truth, Justice and the American way” and fail to curb your enthusiasm for applying those beliefs in you daily work effort, the media will “discover” you and take an “interest.” The more you speak out about what is really going on, the worse your image will be dragged through the mud by that media.

Finally, once you have been deemed “irredeemable,” the taxman “commeth” and you loose everything.

If that does not shut you up, well there is only one thing left to do and that is clean up the mess after your car’s breaks “fail” or write the media press release about the tragedy of the out-spoken elected official who was killed by a “mugger” or who “for some unknown reason” committed suicide.

I tell you there are games within games, in all levels of government in this country today. The most important game at work is the one meant to keep you distracted from what your government is doing, day-in, day-out, to strip you of what few Rights and Freedoms are left with any real meaning.

I don’t care where you live, you are seeing more and more government intrusion into your personal and professional lives. If you can be convinced you need it, then you are easy prey for these predatory efforts to rob you of your birthright.

Land use planning, business licensing, tax collection and reporting, gun control, “hate crime laws,” and on and on and on.

Don’t you get it?! In just those few words I listed in that last sentence above, you’ve lost your Right to own real property, make a living, protect yourself from criminals (both in and out of government), and your freedom of speech. Furthermore, your churches are so completely compromised by the IRS, they will not dare risk their tax exempt status to speak out. So much for religious freedom.

Television, sports, taxes, 24/7 news programming, talk radio, the internet, and yes, even politics, has all been used to keep you from paying attention to the “man behind the curtain.” Most of you don’t even know any of this is happening, right? It is happening, but instead of even considering the possibility of believing me, you are probably thinking I’m a nut. I’m not (see Part One).

The political interests who want to relieve you of your Rights and Freedom are playing for keeps.

The Game they are playing is the Game of Political Power.

They want it. All of it.

You had it, before you gave it away. If you want it back, you’ll now have to fight for it.

That will take real character and that also means you’ll need to reacquaint yourself with the concept of personal courage. It will take a certain amount of that courage for you to even accept what I’m telling you is real. With everything I write, I encourage you to check-out what I tell you is true. My job is to lay out the facts, as best I can, to give you a logical path to explore. I can’t give you courage or build your character. That is a personal job only you can do. I can only help, once you’ve decided to act on your own.

A free person is a terrible threat to those power interests who hate freedom. They can not compete with the concept of freedom. They can only try to crush it in the hope of erasing the very concept from the minds of those they seek to rule.

There will be no easy victory for freedom in this struggle. It is too late for that.

The first battle you have to fight is for your own mind. You have to be willing to “look behind the curtain” and truly see what is going on. Some of you will like what you see and that will be that. Good-bye.

For those of you who don’t like what you see, you will have to sort through your personal distraction addictions and wean yourself from them one-by-one. Television, radio, the internet, newspapers, pleasure books, are a few of the distractions you have used to numb yourself into the sorry state you are in today.

But they can also be used as tools to reclaim your life, by using them differently, to seek out important information that will broaden you mind and make it stronger, less subject to easy plunder by those who wish you no good. You can free yourself, easily, by simply questioning what you see and hear until you understand the world around you, through your own personal epiphany.

You can start easy enough. Here’s how: Go to a used book store and buy an old dictionary, printed before the 1913 if you can find one, but get one printed before 1950 in any case. Then, get a brand new, modern dictionary and compare these words:

1) Alod, Allodium, Alodial, Allodial.
2) Fee, Fee Simple
3) Feud, Feudal

What you will find is that these words are either missing from the newer dictionaries or their definitions will have changed. If the meanings of words are subjective (subject to change), then so are your Rights.

I used these 3 word examples because they are important and will serve as an illustrative case-in-point lesson. The American Revolution was fought, in part, over the right to own property in allodium, instead of in fee.

A feudal title means that land is held in service to the benefit of the overlord. The person living on that land is a serf, a servant, a slave. The overlord owns it (and you) under Feudal Law.

Under English Common Law, feudal titles were slightly changed to create a fee simple title which means your heirs can inherit the “right” to be serfs on the land, but they also inherit your tax debts to the government. A fee title is a feudal title ‘lite,” for you beer drinkers.

Land held in fee, is land held in service to an overlord, subject to their taxes and other whims. It is not yours and can never be yours. You just get to do all the work.

Land held in allodium, is free from an overlord, meaning it is free from taxation. It is yours. You are a sovereign on that land.

The difference between an allodial title and a fee title are the very differences between being a free person or being a serf on the land. The type of land title available to our forefathers was a primary reason they revolted against Great Britain and King George III.

Unless you were the King, a British land title in the Colonies of 1776 was a fee title. After the American Revolution, land titles in the new Republic were in allodium. (They lasted until 1913, but that is the subject for a future Article).

People, the information we all need to be free is out there, at least for now, just waiting to be picked-up and used. But as alluded to earlier regarding new dictionary’s, that is changing rapidly. In addition to eliminating or changing the meanings of our words, public libraries around the country are starting to close. In some areas, “certain books” are being removed from collections. It is happening quietly, but it is happening.

My final point for this Article cannot be made without also placing the final nail in my political careers’ coffin.

Government, at every level in this country and in truth, throughout the world, has become an all consuming machine. It cannot be satiated. It has a hunger for tax money that will, in the end, eat everything, including you, if you don’t stop feeding it, at every level.

From school districts, to fire districts, to villages, towns, cities, counties, states and countries, the emotional cry will go out begging you to “save the children” or some other heart wrenching “cause” in the hope of convincing you to feed the machine. The only hope for a renewed environment where freedom can prosper again, is for you and everyone else to stop feeding the monster your tax money.

Whether you earn Euros’, Yen, Dollars, Pesos or Rubles, to the greatest extent that you possibly can, stop paying all taxes if you can avoid them. Don’t do the things that incur the obligation to pay taxes in the first place. In the United States, it is not a violation of the tax laws to avoid an obligation, but it is an crime to evade an obligation.

If you have the opportunity to vote on a revenue measure, vote no. Don’t get caught up in the arguments “for” or “against” it. They don’t matter, they are part of the greater distraction.

Just vote no whenever and wherever you can.

I know this plan of action sounds like a plan for anarchy, but remember, we are very late in a very real political game that is being played by powerful forces intent on permanently eliminating your remaining freedoms. You don’t have many options at your disposal, short of open rebellion, to slow down these nefarious efforts and eventually rally others to this cause.

The enemies of freedom live on your tax money.

Starve them.

Starve them into retreat or feed them on to victory (over you).

The choice is yours.


One more exercise before we part, for now:

Read about the real reason we celebrate The Fourth of July.

Read about the creation of the Stars and Stripes and find out why it is called “Old Glory.”

Read the Constitution, again.

Read about our Founding Fathers and find out why they fought a bloody war with a tyrannical government, pledging to each other “their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.”

Discover the difference between a “democracy” and a Republic and then find out why our Founders despised the very idea of “democracy.”

Do these things and you will understand the reasons you should cherish your Freedom.

Only then can you even begin to understand the concept of Americanism.

Americanism is the life philosophy of Freedom. For part one click below.
