Some Have Had Ten Years To Think About Their Answer…

Ten years ago I asked this question: Where would you choose to live…

….safe or free?

As we live today it is remarkable how this image encapsulates the world around us.  Those who demand control over liberty are doing their best to remove the foundation of our freedom.  We each have a choice to make…. I choose to live; and there is no time of consequence so important for all of us – than to make a decision right now.

I will grind the bones in my hand to make Lady Liberty a rib.  No cost is too great at this moment.

St. Crispin’s Day ~ Henry V

[…] If we are mark’d to die, we are enough
To do our country loss; and if to live,
The fewer men, the greater share of honour.
God’s will! I pray thee, wish not one man more.
By Jove, I am not covetous for gold,
Nor care I who doth feed upon my cost;
It yearns me not if men my garments wear;
Such outward things dwell not in my desires.
But if it be a sin to covet honour,
I am the most offending soul alive.
No, faith, my coz, wish not a man from England.
God’s peace! I would not lose so great an honour
As one man more methinks would share from me
For the best hope I have. O, do not wish one more!
Rather proclaim it, Westmorland, through my host,
That he which hath no stomach to this fight,
Let him depart; his passport shall be made,
And crowns for convoy put into his purse;
We would not die in that man’s company
That fears his fellowship to die with us.
This day is call’d the feast of Crispian.
He that outlives this day, and comes safe home,
Will stand a tip-toe when this day is nam’d,
And rouse him at the name of Crispian.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say “To-morrow is Saint Crispian.”
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say “These wounds I had on Crispin’s day.”
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words—
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester—
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be rememberèd—
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition;
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accurs’d they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

      Agreed. Right now our generation is being called upon to put our personal needs aside and stand up for America so that she may continue to remain free! I pray there are enough patriots willing to do what it takes to prevent the slide into socialism and communism.

      Remember, the American Revolution was fought and won by just 30% of the population, and we will do it again. Thank you, Sundance, for rallying the troops!! Stay safe

        Actually, Bucket, I believe it was only 3% of the colonists that fought against English tyranny, thus the foundation for the name of the current Three Percenters group in our nation.

        Some info from their website:

        HISTORY
        In the mid-1700’s, the British colonies of North America had many reasons to be disgruntled with the British Empire and the ruling class in England. Recognizing that things would get worse before they got better, many amongst the people banded together to push an ideology they all shared. This ideology identified and acknowledged that every person has from birth certain rights. These are not granted by any authority other than their Creator. The limitation or denial of these rights is defined as tyranny and oppression. These bands of people worked together to peacefully resolve the abuses of their government, but recognized that peace was not a guaranteed solution.

        Eventually, an idea was coined of having “Minutemen” available at a moment’s notice should the King’s tyranny show up in their town, on their streets, or at their door. These Minutemen would meet, train, and prepare to defend themselves, their family, and their townships from an ever encroaching empire. It is from these Minutemen where the 3% name originated. It is a rough estimate that only 3% of the colonists were actively fighting in the field against British forces at any given time. Today we recognize with this 3% in being that we will be the last defense to protect the citizens of the United States if there ever comes a day when our government takes up arms against the American people.

        3 PRINCIPLES OF THE THREE PERCENTERS
        All Three Percenters must abide by the following principles. Anyone who cannot accept these principles as a self-imposed discipline are not welcome in this organization, nor should ever consider themselves a part of the Three Percent movement.

        1. Moral Strength – Knowing what is right and wrong and acting accordingly. Being trustworthy, truthful, and holding high values and principles. Strength to stand up when something is morally wrong.

        2. Physical Readiness – Physical readiness is defined as the ability to meet the physical demands of any task in order to accomplish the objective at hand. There are some III%ers that have disabilities that prevent them from meeting physical demands and for these there is an exception.

        3. No First Use of Force – “Don’t fire unless fired upon”. We are not the aggressor nor antagonist. We are purely defensive and only as a last resort.

        OUR GOAL
        The goal and main focus of ‘The Three Percenters – Original’ is to get patriots to network, prepare, and petition together on a local level. We intend to provide a framework and guidance that ‘The People’ can use to make positive change in restoring the founding principles of our Constitutional Republic. We plan to leverage incorporated fail-safes and laws to ensure success in preserving the Constitution as the supreme law of the land.

    That is largely why I chose to move to a pretty remote rural area 20 years ago (county without a traffic light in its governmental seat, very large stone and steel vehicular-resistant gate at the end of a mile long, dead end single lane gravel road that gets blocked with fallen trees in heavy storms, from gate 1/2 mile gravel road to my house centered in 50 acre of woods) with absolutely nothing in common “socially” with my “neighbors” (nearest is 3/4 mile as the crow flies) except a desire to be left alone.
    Zoning is something for townfolk so we live intermingled with mostly single wide (and very old) trailers and widespread poverty in this totally agricultural county. We do not “go out” to eat or the movies and going to a bar or “club” is not even in the radar as we live in an area where booze is not served.

    All that is fine with us as we see that as a “cost” (everything we do in life involves choices that can be see as costs in a cost/benefit analysis) we are gladly willing to pay for our freedom.

    We came as refugees from a tony upscale gated neighborhood in north Atlanta that, prior to the crash in 2007 was filled with very well-to-do 30 somethings, mostly working in “tech” with flashy cars and superior self-absorbed attitudes.

    In contrast, we were 50 somethings and from a military background where one was “ measured” not by possessions, but rather your rank and what you wore on your left chest.

    As a result, we were quite miserable and feeling very “unfree.” When my beloved dog was run over in front of my house by one of these people, drunk after happy hour at the neighborhood pool going at least 60 on a 25 zone, we decided freedom was better than the “safety” of our prison neighborhood where one could be fined if your trash can was visible from the street.

    We have NEVER looked back.

    I, for one, prefer to die defending the cause of Liberty for ALL than to become enslaved for “safety”. No one gets out of this life alive.
    IMO what is playing out is the climax of the age old war over Free Agency – the right to choose. All of us are being drawn into the fray in some way. Everyone will have to make the decision whether to be free or be enslaved. Remember, when the chips are down the devil will not support his own. Satan is the father of all lies & will try everything to take away your light & freedom to choose.

      I never thought that American governors & mayors would use the control of utilities against its citizens to control their behavior. And yet here we are.

        As a side note, we started traveling & camping 3 or 4 years ago where we started staying away from our home for 4-6 weeks. We turn the water off when we leave.

        Everytime we’ve come back. Someone from the Republic has been out to check that we haven’t somehow changed the meter to not register water consumption and/or installed a different water system.

    “Live free or die—Death is not the worst of evils.” General John Stark

    Live Free or Die: The Story of General John Stark

    Jon Hersey January 04, 2018 Audio PDF In Spring 2018/

    “Noting that some of America’s worst enemies during the Revolutionary War had come from within in the form of “powerful British faction[s]” working toward the “subversion of our liberties,” Stark recognized that it was “by having good sentinels at our outposts [that] we were apprised of the danger.” Without the brave writers and activists who first rose to defend freedom—without those who raised the alarm and alerted their countrymen—American liberty may have perished without a fight, gradually and absent all resistance. So, Stark continued, “These are my orders now, and will be my last orders to all my volunteers.” He commanded those who were to carry on the responsibility of safeguarding liberty to maintain vigilance, to stay alert, “to look to their sentries.”

    Stark ended his letter with a toast that will forever affix him in our minds as an embodiment of that quintessential American virtue: independence. His tribute to those “who had not learned the art of submission” was, “Live free or die—Death is not the worst of evils.”

    Here’s to General John Stark and to all who hold “that undisciplined freemen are superior to veteran slaves.”

    “Without the brave writers and activists who first rose to defend freedom—without those who raised the alarm and alerted their countrymen—American liberty may have perished without a fight, gradually and absent all resistance.”

    Above excerpt could apply in 2020/ It is our responsibility to safeguard liberty, to
    maintain justice, and to stay alert and to follow the bravery of those willing to lead.

    THANK YOU sundance for ALL YOU DO 24/7/365 – GOD BLESS YOU.

    Waiting for a date and time… I’ll use some vacation time no problem. Boston tea party was about taxation without representation? I’m being taxed to high hell and I really do not feel represented since this local government lockdown transpired. It can’t be too much to ask us citizens to hop on a plane, drive and assemble for a day or two. No violence just a massive, massive gathering showing true nationalism. Get a 100k people somewhere right?? Maybe the media could still hide that somehow lol, not sure.

    Luke 21, from the King James Version:

    7 And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass?
    8 And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them.
    9 But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, be not terrified: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by.
    10 Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:
    11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.
    12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.
    13 And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
    14 Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
    15 For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
