What are you willing to live for? Die for?

RESOLVE: That's what the defenders 
of freedom are looking for

What are you willing to do, to endure, for freedom to flourish, to last as a legacy for your children, your grand children? Another question: what is freedom? Do you know? Is it license to do what ever you want? Or is it something more? Something perhaps even deeply spiritual or transcendent? 
From the law and the prophets, we learn that where the spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. And the apostles doctrine is that the perfect law of liberty is given by grace from God, a gift paid for by the blood of Christ at Calvary.
Ron Paul has observed that the only actual freedom is individual liberty.  
The law, prophets and apostles agree. For it is individual faith that defines true belief.
Thomas Jefferson observed that freedom was worth the extreme oath, to swear upon the altar of God Almighty his absolute allegiance against every form of tyranny that exalts itself over the mind of man.
Resolve.
It has defined the history of our nation, the picture given of a tree of liberty. Wasn't it nourished by the blood of patriots?
Do you have that level of RESOLVE?

  1. Thousands of men and women have come and gone from here in our country's history, and except for the few, most go unnoticed and remain nameless in the pages of history, as I am sure I will be. The few who are remembered are those who were able to grab the reins of power and, for the most part, use that power to the detriment of the nation. We must remember, achieving power is never the goal sought by a truly free society. Dissipation of power is always the objective of those who love liberty.
