(Vanity) Send Your Words of Support to the Volunteers of the Minuteman Project
Spiff | 11 April 2005 | Spiff

Posted on 04/11/2005 10:44:14 AM PDT by Spiff

I was going through a number of threads related to the Minuteman Project to gather the many warm wishes and words of support that so many FReepers have expressed. I want to print them out and take them down to the Minuteman Project HQ and post them for all of the volunteers to see.

Then it occurred to me that a separate thread could be posted with the purpose of allowing people to express their support to the men and women volunteers with the Minuteman Project.

I'm not looking for any glory for myself as my actual volunteer time with the Minuteman Project has been limited for a number of reasons. I've done what I could to help out here and there, but I certainly don't deserve the praise better reserved for those who have sat on the hot and dusty front line for days on end. Those are the real heroes, not me.

So, let's use this thread to let the Minuteman Project volunteers and organizers know just how much we appreciate their patriotic efforts.

Our family deeply appreciates the efforts of the Minutemen to highlight the illegal alien border crossing problem. We admire their selfless dedication to a cause that we all support.

GO MINUTEMEN!!!!!

The gathering of the Minutemen in Arizona is a watershed moment in U.S. history. And history will long remember these men, not as vigilantes, but as patriots of the highest order. And the critics and nay-sayers will have no part in that history, but as dust under the heels of better men.

God bless our Minutemen, both 1776 and 2005.

When government is infiltrated or for whatever reasons refused to enforce the laws, there is no other choice but for the citizens to take action. As Bill O'Reilley stated today: this country is being invaded.

The Minutemen, have made us feel hope for our great country. We all feel hope, and pride in what you are doing. And believe me, we are all thinking of each of you. And, thinking that we want to join you. Please know that Americans are grateful and praying for you.

Thank you Minutemen and Women!

We are so very proud of each of you. For those of us who can't be on the Border to help you out, we'll do what we can to donate to this very just cause.

God Bless you all.

Good job Minutemen! You are all patriots, thank you.
Stay safe. Here's a quote from Mark Twain:

"In the beginning of a change, the patriot is a scarce man brave, hated, and scorned. When his cause succeeds, however, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." ~Mark Twain

You folks are in my prayers every night and every day. I ask our Lord to protect you and give His guidance.

THANK YOU for protecting our border even when our own government refuses to do it's duty. You folks are TRUE PATRIOTS.

You folks ARE having an effect. You are making a difference. Keep up the excellent work!

You are American heroes....don't let anyone tell you different. You are doing a job that needed to be done and making history at the same time.

Hope Washington gets the message and the project expands all along the border.

Many of us wish we could be there to share this with you.

Richard,
Virginia

Thank you for the attention you have brought to the subject of border security.

Many people still have no idea how bad the border situation is, how far reaching are the economic and cultural consequences of the millions of illegal aliens squatting in our country, nor how high up in the US Government the corruption and malfeasance with regard to border security and illegal immigration goes.

Their eyes are being opened, slowly, painfully, and hopefully not before it is too late.

You are doing the hard work and taking the risks to bring attention to this vital national security issue. You have my support, my prayers, and my admiration.

To all the Minutemen especially the 68 year old, retired farmer from Iowa I met last week. You and your wife have my deepest admiration. I hope I see you on the line so we can continue trading pheasant hunting stories...

Be safe, keep the faith, you're in my prayers.

Jim

To the Minutemen on Arizona's border:

You guys are doing yomans work of freedom and are deserving of all of our thanks for the risks, the commitment, the standing up to misinormation and attacks, weeding oue infiltrations, enduring the threatenings of the Governor of Arizona, and despite it all, volunteering their time, on their dime, to go and do what needs to be done.

In my opinion, you are setting an example for us all and for our government, and I thank you for it, and my family thanks you for it, and we pray for your success and that the effort will grow dynamically as a result of what you have done...of the trailblazing you have accomplished. God bless 'em.

Way to go, Minutemen. With a lot of luck we can get even more out next time; maybe someday cover the entire border.

What might Mexico, the ACLU, MSM, and illegal alien apologists say about that?

Keep up the good work.

To all you 'vigilantes' out there: GOD BLESS YOU! You are the first people in history to ever make a complete fool out of President GW Bush. He richly deserves to look the fool on this issue.

Rest assured that many Americans are praying for you guys.

You are finding out a lot of valuable, unreported information, you are proving that the 'CAN'T BE DONE' crowd is full of BS. You know the score-- the danger of transnational terrorists trumps all other concerns. And, you are getting this issue noticed.

You have handled yourselves admirably, under the watchful eyes of the ACLU.

YOU ARE PATRIOTS!

Message from my Mom:

You are making Bush look he's full of beaurocratic BS, she wishes she could be there with you guys. "You are doing a great job. You're showing the government how foolish they are. Keep up the good work. I'm proud of you. You are real patriots!"

My mom, BTW, has a wall covered with Bush and Laura photos. But she takes borders seriously, too.

FReegards....

"When the minute men gathered at Concord Bridge on April 19, 1775, to face the British, this colorful banner waved over them. The square shape was typical of cavalry flags at the time. Emerson wrote of that battle: "By the Rude Bridge that arched the flood, their flag to April's breeze unfurled, here once the embattled farmers stood and fired the shot heard around the world." Today the "First Flag of the Revolution" may still be seen at the Bedford Library in Bedford, Massachusetts. This priceless relic is the oldest flag in the United States."
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You guys are the modern embodiment of this spirit, our sentinals in the scrub proving that (above) average citizens can still make a real difference without "their government's permission". I sincerely regret not being there with you. May God keep you all safe from enemies foreign and domestic. There's no doubt which one of those poses the greater threat. Your participation harms these latter-day Quislings most of all - an unexpected bonus!

And Spiff, you're too modest. Give my regards to JB and I hope IRBP a swift recovery.

Thanks for standing up to the purveyors of political correctness and not backing down in the face of an attack by the liberal media and pro illegal immigration advocates.

The Americans who have risen up against the illegal invasion are not "vigilantes" or "racists" or "the enemy." They are the PATRIOTS, the Minutemen, and their numbers will grow -- and they will win. (sound familiar?)

Good job everyone, you've proven that having people patrolling the borders Would shut down the amount of Illegal Immigrants we receive. Let's hope some big boys in DC are noticing.

" War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling, which thinks that nothing is worth war, is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

- John Stuart Mill ~ (1868)"




You are not better men (and women), you ARE the BEST.

I pray God will keep you safe as you hold the line against those who would bring our destruction.
