This FReepathon thread is for FReepers who believe in and support our pro-life, pro-family, pro-limited government conservative causes, enjoy reading and participating on FR, think it's a worthwhile endeavor and would like to help us keep it going.
I retired a previous thread as it was being used by posters who obviously do not agree with our purposes here and or no longer enjoy participating on FR or no longer believe it is worthwhile. Hopefully, they'll respect us enough to stay off our official freepathon threads. If they no longer enjoy FR, no longer respect us, etc, then perhaps they should consider leaving. I'm certainly not asking them to donate, but I do expect them not to be disruptive to our purposes here.
We are the resistance!! And have been since inception in 1996. We are traditional pro-life, small government (constitutionally limited government), strong defense, traditional American conservatives and will accept nothing less. We defend our God, defend our Liberty, defend our constitution and defend our founding principles.
We believe this nation was founded on the principle that all men are created equal by God and endowed with unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. Our current government has stretched itself way beyond its constitutional limits, granted itself powers not enumerated for it and which were reserved to the states and the people, has abused and trampled on the constitution and the rights of the people and otherwise has made itself destructive to our founding principles and our liberty.
Government derives its just powers at the consent of the government. We do not grant our consent to oppressive government or to government officials who do not defend the constitution, life and liberty!!
We believe the federal government should be altered by removing all functions and powers it has granted to itself which are not enumerated to it by the constitution and all such functions and powers returned to the states and the people per the tenth amendment. And we believe that "law" unconstitutionally enacted, upheld and sustained by judicial fiat, ie, such as Roe v Wade be immediately overturned, rescinded, stricken, abolished, etc, and the principle of unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness be fully restored.
If this sounds simplistic, well it is. The founding principles are straight forward. Our Declaration, Constitution and Bill of Rights are clear. Words have meanings. We should not allow lawyers, judges, power hungry politicians, greedy special interests, leftist ideologues, etc, to twist the clear meanings and principles of liberty to suit their tyrannical purposes.
The constitution must be upheld and our liberty fully restored!!
The two major political parties are hell bent and riding hard to strengthen their grasp on unconstitutional power. The GOP-e can hardly wait to strip the pro-life, pro-family, pro-gun, pro-liberty, pro-borders planks from its platform. Romney is their ticket to get it done. If staunch pro-life, pro-liberty conservatives can be turned, then these principles are no longer a serious threat to the usurpers.
Do not let them do this.
Resistance to tyranny is obedience to God.
We are the resistance!!
If you believe in resisting the usurpers, fighting tyranny and restoring Liberty as I do, then please keep the donations and checks coming in. And be sure to turn out in November and vote your conscience. Vote straight conservative. We need tea party conservatives voted into as many local state and federal offices as humanly possible. The Republic you save may be your own!!

"The fate of unborn millions will now depend, under God, on the courage and conduct of this army. Our cruel and unrelenting enemy leaves us only the choice of brave resistance, or the most abject submission.
We have, therefore, to resolve to conquer or die."
Address to the Continental Army before the Battle of Long Island (27 August 1776
You absolutely can use it! :-)
"Yesterday the greatest question was decided which ever was debated in America; and a greater perhaps never was, nor will be, decided among men.
A resolution was passed without one dissenting colony, "that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States. "
The revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected from 17601775, in the course of fifteen years, before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington. "
trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty. "
"A nation which can prefer disgrace to danger is prepared for a master, and deserves one."
"It has been observed that a pure democracy if it were practicable would be the most perfect government. Experience has proved that no position is more false than this. The ancient democracies in which the people themselves deliberated never possessed one good feature of government. Their very character was tyranny; their figure deformity."
Speech in New York, urging ratification of the U.S. Constitution (1788-06-21)
" "When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with inherent and inalienable Rights; that among these, are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness; that to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
For the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor."
What country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?
