December 23, 1776 - Thomas Paine "THESE are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."
Ephesians 6:10-20 "Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people. Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should."
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness;" (Isaiah 5:20) Please take the time and look at these videos and SHARE this page with your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. Please note; there's so much more evidence out there that we live in a backwards, illogical world that simply lacks common sense and a common decency towards our fellow man -- all occurring with a complete lack of will to solve the problems we face today.
I weep for future generations.

At Mrs. Nordman’s request, I include in the RECORD, under unanimous consent, the following “Current Communist Goals,” which she identifies as an excerpt from “The Naked Communist,” by Cleon Skousen...
On Saturday, April 21st, 2012, in Segment 2 of the show, I introduced Matt White of the UniversityOfCommonSense.org. In Segments 5 & 6 we dig a little deeper into the process of seeking the Truth and also touch on Congressman Paul Ryan's Budget.
On Saturday, April 21st, 2012, the founder and Executive Director of The1830Project.org, Dr. Tom Trevisani, joined me in-studio to talk about his passion for the 18 to 30 year old demographic and his vision for The 1830 Project.
On Saturday, April 21, 2012, Matt White, founder of the UniversityOfCommonSense.org joined me in-studio, in spite of giving birth to Cal, his kidney stone earlier that morning around 3:30am, to explain his journey, from everyday Republican to principled follower of the Constitution.
On Wednesday, May 4, 2011, historian, and to many of us across the country, "national treasure", David Barton was on the Jon Stewart show. As you'll see in the embedded clips below, David Barton visited with Stewart in an extended interview that left me on the edge of my seat. This interview encapsulates what each of us must do with our family, friends, neighbors and co-workers who have yet to awaken to the fact that we have not been taught a truthful and complete view of American History.
In March of 2011, I was asked by Michael Patrick Leahy, founder of the popular Twitter hashtag #TCOT (Top Conservatives on Twitter), creator of the TCOT Report, and co-host of the original conference calls that launched the nationwide tea party movement, to join the Advisory Group for the new eBook series, "Voices of the Tea Party". The series is being published by Broadside Books, a division of Harper Collins.
I often refer to the tea party movement as an "Awakening". Read how one liberty-minded friend-of-the-movement went from an everyday Republican to an educated constitutionalist. In the tea party movement, at the end of the day, we seek the truth. And in this great "Awakening", our responsibility is to just do the next right thing.
On Monday, March 21, 2011, the Seminole County 9.12 group(s) hosted Sheriff Richard Mack (ret.) for an outstanding presentation on how his lawsuit against the Clinton administration recognized our state sovereignty.
If anyone would have asked me on Friday, February 27, 2009 at our first Orlando Tea Party rally what the 17th Amendment to the US Constitution is and how has it affected the relationship between the state and federal governments, I wouldn't have been able to answer the question. Did we rise up because we knew what James Madison wrote about federalism in The Federalist Papers or because we understood the purpose of the legal system from Bastiat's, The Law? No, but like me, the American electorate arose from it's slumber because, simply put, we knew something was wrong.
On Thursday, February 24th, 2011, I flew to Dallas, TX to join the Dallas area tea party as a presenter at their Grassroots Bootcamp. To my surprise, there were over 230 Texas patriots in attendance and just as you'll find at any tea party group, they were the nicest people you'd ever want to meet.
This evening I was honored to be invited to speak at the Winter Haven 9/12 Project meeting in Winter Haven, FL. Bill Landes, the State Director for the Florida Minutemen, a genuine patriot and friend, invited me to discuss the importance of education and to demonstrate the US Constitution Coach Kit. The DVD Rom really is an incredible product with over 60,000 original source documents. I was so enthused by the group tonight as most of them had met the night before at a town hall with Congressman Dennis Ross. For concerned citizens to take time out of their busy lives and stay engaged night after night, warms my heart.
The following was posted on my blog site, MyAmericanism.com, on March 15, 2009. The site has since been taken down and I believe the blog post must be preserved: 9 PRINCIPLES
1. America Is Good.
2. I believe in God and He is the Center of my Life.
God “The propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the external rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained.” from George Washington’s first Inaugural address.
3. I must always try to be a more honest person than I was yesterday.
Honesty “I hope that I shall always possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider to be the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man.” George Washington
4. The family is sacred. My spouse and I are the ultimate authority, not the government.
Marriage/Family “It is in the love of one’s family only that heartfelt happiness is know. By a law of our nature, we cannot be happy without the endearing connections of a family.” Thomas Jefferson
5. If you break the law you pay the penalty. Justice is blind and no one is above it.
Justice “I deem one of the essential principles of our government… equal and exact justice to all men of whatever state or persuasion, religious or political.” Thomas Jefferson
6. I have a right to life, liberty and pursuit of happiness, but there is no guarantee of equal results.
Life, Liberty, & The Pursuit of Happiness “Everyone has a natural right to choose that vocation in life which he thinks most likely to give him comfortable subsistence.” Thomas Jefferson
7. I work hard for what I have and I will share it with who I want to. Government cannot force me to be charitable.
Charity “It is not everyone who asketh that deserveth charity; all however, are worth of the inquiry or the deserving may suffer.” George Washington
8. It is not un-American for me to disagree with authority or to share my personal opinion.
On your right to disagree “In a free and republican government, you cannot restrain the voice of the multitude; every man will speak as he thinks, or more properly without thinking.” George Washington
9. The government works for me. I do not answer to them, they answer to me.
Who works for whom? “I consider the people who constitute a society or a nation as the source of all authority in that nation.” Thomas Jefferson
- Honesty - Reverence - Hope - Thrift - Humility - Charity - Sincerity - Moderation - Hard Work - Courage - Personal Responsibility - Gratitude
