“Portrait of a bush-league führer named [fill in name], a sparse little man who feeds off his self-delusions and finds himself perpetually hungry for want of greatness in his diet. And like some goose-stepping predecessors he searches for something to explain his hunger, and to rationalize why a world passes him by without saluting.
That something he looks for and finds is in a sewer.
In his own twisted and distorted lexicon he calls it faith, strength, truth." — He’s Alive

The Preamble declares who is enacting the Constitution — the people of the United States. The document is the collective enactment of all Americans. The Constitution is “owned” by the people, not by the government or any branch thereof.
We the People are the stewards of the U.S. Constitution and remain responsible for its continued existence and its faithful interpretation.

• Yes, we are all deeply flawed. If we aren’t careful, “identity politics” will be the death of us.
Everyone has something to contribute — no matter what their failings are. The messenger’s idiocy doesn’t matter if the message is true and the ideals just.
“These families came here to work. They came to build. Others came to America in different ways, from other lands, under different, and often harrowing conditions, but this place symbolizes what they all managed to build, no matter where they came from or how they came or how much they suffered.”
“They came to make America work. They didn’t ask what this country could do for them but what they could do to make this, this refuge the greatest home of freedom in history.”
“They brought with them courage, ambition and the values of family, neighborhood, work, peace and freedom. We all came from different lands but we shared the same values, the same dream.”
“I want more than anything I’ve ever wanted to let millions of people know that Miss Liberty still “lifts her lamp beside the golden door.” Let us send, loud and clear, the message that this generation of Americans intends to keep that lamp shining; that this dream, that this dream the last best hope of man on earth, this nation under God, shall not perish from the earth.” – Ronald Reagan, Sept. 1, 1980
“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”
The NFL dishonors the American flag by using it to promote commercial gain. Colin Kaepernick showed us all what happens when Americans try and exercise the freedoms that our flag stands for: Your boss is your master, and you are his slave.
excerpt of a memorial speech delivered by Dr. Joseph Warren under threat of arrest and assassination:
The tools of power, in every age, have racked their inventions to justify the few in sporting with the happiness of the many; and, having found their sophistry too weak to hold mankind in bondage, have impiously dared to force religion, the daughter of the king of heaven, to become a prostitute in the service of hell.
They taught that princes might bid defiance to the founder of their faith, might pillage Pagan countries and deluge them with blood, only because they boasted themselves to be the disciples of that teacher who strictly charged his followers to do to others as they would that others should do unto them.
Our country is in danger, but not to be despaired of. Our enemies are numerous and powerful; but we have many friends, determining to be free, and heaven and earth will aid the resolution. On you depend the fortunes of America. You are to decide the important question, on which rest the happiness and liberty of millions yet unborn.
Act worthy of yourselves. Your fathers look from their celestial seats with smiling approbation on their sons, who boldly stand forth in the cause of virtue; but sternly frown upon the inhuman miscreant, who, to secure the loaves and fishes to himself, would breed a serpent to destroy his children.
Major general / Dr. Joseph Warren died in combat on June 17, 1775 defending liberty.
Herding men, women, and children into concentration camps is a crime against humanity.
Crime and punishment.
Misguided conservatives, bigots, and Trump supporters [what’s the difference?] wrongly think that immigrant children and their parents are criminals and are being punished.
The rest of America sees the Trump administration, ICE, and each and every individual agent that participates in the barbarous interments at our southern border as criminals subject to punishment. ‘I was just following orders’ will not shield them from prosecution.
“By the frame of the Government under which we live this same people have wisely given their public servants but little power for mischief, and have with equal wisdom provided for the return of that little to their own hands at very short intervals. While the people retain their virtue and vigilance no Administration by any extreme of wickedness or folly can very seriously injure the Government in the short space of four years.”
“I am loath to close. We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory, stretching from every battlefield and patriot grave to every living heart and hearthstone all over this broad land, will yet swell the chorus of the Union, when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.” — A. Lincoln
More than half of the American people will not have another four years of Trump. Not peacefully. There will be bloodshed and chaos unmatched since the Civil War.
Americans will not be governed for long without the consent of the majority, a fact that Trump’s most ardent supporters can easily understand.
Either there will be a new president come election day next year or our country will tear itself to shreds. Choose wisely.
