"You need only reflect that one of the best ways
to get yourself a reputation as a dangerous citizen these days is to go about
repeating the very phrases which our founding fathers used in the struggle for
independence." [Charles Austin Beard, historian]
At this point, we have examined, in part: How our country was founded; how it
was designed to work; how it was changed; who changed it; who is likely to
restore it; and who is likely to wish to maintain the status quo.
It is time to identify yourself, in regard to this work. There are really only
four general positions one may take:
1. A supporter of the Restoration of the Republic.
that requires futher research, but yearns for truth.
3. A supporter of the
4. One without any intention or conviction.
Only those who subscribe to one of the first two will have any use for what is
to follow here. The appendices are loaded with information that will expose
our government on several issues, and this may convince some that action must
be taken. For now, as far as we have gone, I will assume that those who have
read to this point are friendly to the Restoration.
In keeping with the preface of this book, there is nothing left but to examine
as to how the Republic will be restored. You and I, and folks like us, will
restore it: One man, one church, one town, one county, and one state at a
time. It will not be restored by voting for a Congressman or President, it
will be restored by taking dominion over that which is directly before us; to
actively promote the founding principles of this Republic within our particular
spheres of influence.
I forsee that the Restoration is inevitable, because Socialist Democracies
always fail, and more often than not by internal violence.
A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only
exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the
Public Treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the
candidate promising the most benefits from the Public Treasury with the result
that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy always followed by
dictatorship. [Alexander Fraser Tyler, "The Decline and Fall of the
The highest art in the world cannot gold socialism. It
is impossible to make beautiful the denial of liberty. [Auberon Herbert, 1899]
Undoubtedly, the road to restoration will not be effortless, or even without
its own tragedies. Yet, the Republic will be restored, because there are
enough of us out here to keep the truth alive, and the truth cannot be forever
denied. When the Restoration occurs is entirely dependent upon your support
and commitment. If you actively support the Restoration it will occur that
much sooner, perhaps even in your lifetime. Do not be deceived: it is not a
question of "if", but of "when."
Expect no Utopia, for it is not within the power of Man to effect it. But for
as long as your body breathes fight the good fight, and you'll have claimed all
that can be ever be claimed by the good:

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything,
but I can do something. What I can do, I should do and, with the help of God,
I will do! [Everett Hale]
Assuming that you intend to do something, and allowing for my presumption
that you might be inclined to know my intentions, I will outline that which I
see must be done.
First, if one intends to take up the Restoration of the Republic, he must have
something which is altogether lacking in society at large; viz, a commitment to
The corporeal Father of Our Country is George Washington. By no account was he
a scholar of renown, but he had something that bound this country together; he
had earned the unlikely trust of his countrymen by his great and marvelous
commitment to duty. Nothing would sway him from his duty.
I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider
the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man. [George
His [Washington's] integrity was most pure, his justice the most inflexible I
have ever known, no motives of interest or consanguinity, of friendship or
hatred, being able to bias his decision. He was, indeed, in every sense of the
words, a wise, a good, and a great man. [Thomas Jefferson, 1814] [emphasis
Lift your conscience above petty bickering and your own selfish concerns, and
rise up to claim that which is yours your God- given right to be
free, to govern thyself, and to enjoy the fruits of your own labor.
You can be shown the path to Freedom, you can have a buddy help you through the
course, but in the end, no one can carry you, you must bear your own burden.
All of us have heard the expression, "Freedom isn't Free." Just as you
sacrifice to put food on the table, or to educate your children, if you will
have Freedom, it will come at a cost. It has a price, sometimes in labor,
sometimes in suffering, and sometimes in the blood of good men. And this you
should know: The very moment at which you will fight for freedom, you
become free. It matters not whether the fight will cost you your life, or six
months in the county jail; if you will not bow to tyranny, you are as free as
The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance;
which condition if he break, servitude is at once the consequence of his crime
and the punishment of his guilt. [John Philpot Curran, 1790]
Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who
approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright
force. Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined. [Patrick
A Commitment to Duty is the first step to Restoration and Freedom. There are
those of us who have made that committment. We are now engaged in the use of
reason to restore our unalienable rights, but make no mistake, the Commitment
to Duty is not about pacifistic protest. It is about winning, by reason or by
sword, whichever offers the best hope for our freedom and for our posterity.
Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at
the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what
course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty, or give me death!
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility
of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in
peace. We seek not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which
feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that
ye were our countrymen. [Samuel Adams]
I would ask that you consider this: If it should ever come to pass that
nothing is worth dying for, then so shall cease any reason for living. It
should be obvious that if there is nothing that we hold as more important than
the length of our finite visit on this Earth, then our visit shall be wearisome
and without any real meaning. We cannot live forever, so will you trade your
freedom that you might attempt this thing which you cannot have? Freedom for
They that give up essential liberty to obtain a little
temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. [Benjamin Franklin, 1759]
Once you make that commitment then you can begin to explore the ways in which
you can make an impact. What you do is in your hands, and I trust that you
will be compelled to act in your own particular way. However, I will offer
some advice: Educate others, particularly those within your spheres; discover
who is for and against the Restoration, particularly those of influence;
prepare yourself and your family mentally, physically and, most of all,
spiritually, for what is to come.
No other sure foundation [education] can be devised, for the preservation of
freedom and happiness. If anybody thinks that kings, nobles, or priests are
good conservators of the public happiness send them here [Europe]. It is the
best school in the universe to cure them of that folly. (1786)
Preach, my dear Sir, a crusade against ignorance;
establish & improve the law for educating the common people. Let our
countrymen know that the people alone can protect us against these evils, and
that the tax which will be paid for this purpose is not more than the
thousandth part of what will be paid to kings, priests & nobles who will
rise up among us if we leave the people in ignorance. (1786)
they [the People] become inattentive to the public affairs, you & I, &
Congress & Assemblies, judges & governors shall all become wolves. It
seems to be the law of our general nature, in spite of individual exceptions;
and experience declares that man is the only animal which devours his own kind,
for I can apply no milder term to the governments of Europe, and to the general
prey of the rich on the poor. (1787) [Thomas Jefferson] [emphasis added]
If you would participate in the cause of humanity and strike a blow against
tyranny, understand that the mind is mightier than the sword. Go forth and
educate your friends and neighbors. Challenge them to read this essay, you
need not enter into argument over this material. This would serve no purpose,
if they wish to refute it, they may duly study this information and try to take
it apart, either through logic or evidence.
When they come to you with their concerns afford them all the respect and
courtesy they truly deserve. Your sympathy to their concern should be genuine,
if there is anything herein that is inaccurate it will be to your mutual
benefit to discover the truth. Aid them in any manner that you are able that
does not usurp truth or reason to disprove this information.
If you find any fallacy in my argument I would beg you the favor to return to
me a letter with your findings so that I may amend this work for the next
edition. I will not intentionally engage in falsehoods or sophistries, if such
is the road to liberty than I am the greatest of fools. Liberty must lie in
As a group (or individual) you can send a copy of this essay to all your
public servants. I suggest sending it with a cover letter (an example is in
the appendices) that is also a petition for the servant to read the material;
requesting they support and introduce measures for the restoration of your
Republic. A list of servants that I would include in your efforts are:
Municipal, county, and state policemen (not just the Sheriff or Head of the
Agency). Judges of all jurisdictions. Legislatures: to include city council
members, state legislators, U.S. Representatives and Senators. Executives: to
include mayors, governors, and the President of the U.S.
IT WILL PROVE USEFUL TO ALWAYS REQUEST A RESPONSE
IN WRITING FOR THE RECORDS OF THE PETITIONERS.
It will also prove useful to petition the media.
Newspapers, networks, and individual TV and radio stations can all be
petitioned. Petition not only the heads of these organizations but the
reporters in it. All of these institutions require our patronage to exist.
Petitions can show our intent to boycott their services unless they will agree
to adopt policies that will protect the people from disinformation. If they
wish to continue to distract and mislead us, then we are fools to subscribe to
their service and perpetuate the legacy of propaganda. We are not asking these
organizations to print or broadcast our agenda. On the contrary, we are merely
Patriots who cannot patronize organizations that are using their privileges to
misinform the People.
Educators can also be petitioned. School board members, teachers, professors,
district heads, principles, deans etc... are obligated to teach the truth, are
they not? We can ask that they read this information, and respond to it. They
are the educators and if they can find any fallacies in these arguments we
would very much appreciate their attention to the matter.
The local church heads should also be petitioned to read and respond to these
writings. They are God's emissaries and have a duty to obey and proliferate
God's Law, do they not?
It will be useful to require all those petitioned to address the
fundamental principles contained in this essay. It is easy to
be distracted with arguments about the realities of the world to which we are
subjugated. We already know that we are oppressed, what we are seeking are not
these facts, but whether this oppression is an abridgment of our unalienable
rights and our Constitution. This is our concern and we do not care for their
personal rationalizations. Is the Constitution the law of the government or
not? Is common law the law of the body sovereign or not? Is the Federal
Reserve immorally draining off the energy and property of the American people
or not? Are you for or against these usurpations or not? These are the things
we will want to know.
The atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere
restrains evil interference. They deserve a place of honor with all good men.
Physically: It is generally a sincere desire that we willl never have to use a
firearm against another man, but we must take responsibility for our own
freedom. Acquire adequate arms, so that you are prepared to meet the enemy on
equal grounds. Acquire survival gear, and a generous supply of food and other
necessities. A prepared citizenry is worrisome to tyrants. They notice,
believe me, they notice.
Mentally: Get tough. Know that slavery is worse than death or burden.
Spiritually: Make your peace with God, not His enemies, and vow eternal
hostility to those that would take His place.
I have sworn upon the altar of God, eternal hostility against every form of
tyranny over the mind of man. [Thomas Jefferson]
Yours in Service,
God wills us free, man wills us slaves. I will as God
wills, God's will be done. [John Jack (Epitaph on gravestone)]
