Abraham Lincoln said, with chilling insight:  
 "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, 
it will be because we destroyed ourselves."

"...bent, but not broken."

The last line of our Declaration reads: 

"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."

These are not just grand words, written with a curious flair, on an old piece of paper.  They were a commitment to do whatever it took to secure freedom for our new country from an overbearing foreign threat. 
We are duty-bound in our day, 
this day, 
to commit with a similar passion to defend
 against an overbearing domestic threat.  
Many years of contentment led to disinterest 
and a dangerous laissez-faire attitude that our government would take care of everything.  
Little did we know that we would end up 
exactly there… 
No longer can we disregard the magnitude 
of the loss of our freedoms. The first step to restoring liberty is education. The only concept for true independence was outlined by our Founding Fathers in the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the Bill of Rights

T he most pressing reason to act NOW is that in all the history of the world, once freedom has been lost, it has never been recovered.

"Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance
for the preservation
of our liberty." 
                                                 ~Thomas Jefferson

Is America a Democracy or a Republic?

There is a fundamental difference between the two concepts that greatly affects our understanding of our system of government:

  • A democracy is a form of government in which the people decide policy matters directly--through town hall meetings or by voting on ballot initiatives and referendums. 
  • A republic, on the other hand, is a system in which the people choose representatives who, in turn, make policy decisions on their behalf.

The Founding Fathers, after much study and debate, decided that America must be a Republic.  The term "democracy" is not used in the founding documents​. Our system has evolved into a combination of both definitions, not always to our benefit.
