impeaching Obama for Tyranny: The Only Way to Salvation

Centuries ago, just after America won its War of Independence versus King George III, two Europeans giants again battled over liberty versus tyranny. This struggle between Britain and France certainly involved military control of the Continent.

But it was also a fight which would determine the nature of global commerce and religion.Horatio Nelson, history’s greatest admiral battled Napoleon Bonaparte, most acclaimed general of the age. Nelson believed he fought for Christianity, free trade and liberty.

Contra, Napoleon openly stood for atheism, tyranny and a globally directed economy. Symbolically, Napoleon never blinked at death and carnage, believing victory justified any human sacrifice.Today, centuries later, Americans and the world face a similar struggle for liberty, capitalism and religious freedom, unbelievably under America’s own deranged POTUS.

First, Barack has committed acts which have made defense of America’s most sacred rights harder. The rights Thomas Jefferson so memorably outlined in the beginning of his immortal Declaration of Independence: We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable 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 to 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.To state the obvious, all of Obama’s horrifically ill-advised decisions cannot be a coincidence.

“If there be any among us who would wish to dissolve this Union or to change its republican form,” he said in his first inaugural address in 1801, “let them stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left to combat it.

The Fourth of July—a time we Americans set aside to celebrate our independence and mark the war we waged to achieve it, along with the battles that followed.

There was the War of 1812, the War of 1833, the First Ohio-Virginia War, the Three States’ War, the First Black Insurrection, the Great War, the Second Black Insurrection, the Atlantic War, the Florida Intervention.Confused?

Revolution Is Not the Path to Liberty –

July 4, 2014 2 comments

Gary North is out with a short essay, There Will Be No Revolution.

I am tempted to call it the most important essay on advancing liberty since Friedrich Hayek’s The Intellectuals and Socialism, perhaps even more important.I have long argued here at EPJ that direct confrontation with the government makes little sense.

I have also argued that the problem with most revolutions is that generally what occurs is that one bad actor is simply replaced with another.North in his essay argues that this is the nature of revolution. He writes: Revolutions centralize power. In order to fight centralized power militarily, you must centralize power, and this only leads to a shift of loyalty to a new group of centralists…. Revolutionaries have to have a centralized agenda.

Either it’s open, or it isn’t. But there is always a centralized agenda with every revolutionary movement. Every revolutionary always thinks his revolution is going to be the last one. Every revolutionary thinks that when he gets in control of the hierarchical chain of command, things are going to be different.

“Native Americans” a Much Worse Term than “Redskins”

Native Americans” a Much Worse Term than “Redskins

Lawrence journal world ^ | June 25, 2014 | ReasonmclucusPosted on 6/26/2014, 10:46:23 PM by kathsua

The white hypocrites who complain about the term “redskins” use the term “native American” which when used in the way they are using it isn’t much better than the other n-word. The word “redskins” is a physically descriptive term that doesn’t have inherently negative characteristics.

The word is one of the English translations of the Ottawa term “Oklahoma“. If we consider the characteristics of the people the term “redskins” was first applied to, it’s a positive term.The word “native” has two different uses. In general use the term “native ” followed by a geographic region is used to indicate people who live in the area in which they are born.

For example, a native New Yorker is someone who was born in New York and still lives there. In this context what counts is where the individual was born, not when his or her ancestors arrived from somewhere else.
