In Defense of Liberty

What is hardest for anyone not born in the United States to understand is our pension for Liberty.

Many, both Americans as well as foreigners, will argue we are in territories in which we do not belong — while yet, it was the people and their threat of losing liberty that invited us there.

How do the people of any country that basically cannot defend themselves become a focus of the United States?

Again, Liberty — if what little they have is being taken from them or is under a threat of such, including their human rights, then Liberty must be preserved.

History has proven time and time again – Liberty, once lost, is lost forever…

Inherent Rights are Not Limited to the U.S.

Along with that Liberty are their inherent rights provided by the Heavenly Father, whether you believe in Him or not.

Belief is not truth – belief changes by how many times you hear something, the truth remains eternal.

Most of you reading this have an entirely different belief system than you had 10, 15, 20 years ago – yet the truth has not changed once.

In case you have not read Thomas Paine – or even worse do not know who he is thanks to the Liberal education system attempting to indoctrinate our children globally – captured the essence of maintaining liberty in a quote of his during the formation of our country when they hadn’t a clue if the country they were forming would make it into the next century never mind become a world power:

Anyone that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from oppression; for if he violates this duty, he establishes a precedent that will reach to himself.

For most conflicts, we have been invited by formal invitation or by witnessing the threat of the people by their own government failing at all levels to protect the people, whether intentional or not…

Discern the Precedence

The world is a big place and the United States is the only country that has provided this protection of Liberty, even when we include our previous mother country England.

So, should we sit and watch what is happening in foreign lands?

Or should we protect the people so as to preserve their Liberty at our cost?

For if it is the latter, then the United States is defending its own liberty

And if it is the former, then the United States will lose its liberty…

Many countries, empires have forced themselves upon the people of foreign countries – the Roman Empire being the longest to exist before the United States, and as of late England as of the past couple of centuries.

Yet neither did so to protect Liberty but to conquer and subdue the people as their subjects – anyone rising up against them was in for a brutal beating, including our own Colony establishments of the 1600s and 1700s.

The United States – when under the leadership of a God-fearing President (many were and currently are not) – protected the Liberties of those being threatened to lose them and did so globally at our own expense.

Freedom to Be Intelligent, Wise, as well as a Fool

Be belligerent if you want, but it is that very Liberty that permits you to be very intelligent… or very belligerent… all you want.

It is, after all, your will.

However, beware of the ripple effect we ALL create – it will be our own children that will discover one day that our generation accepted the defense of their Liberty… or denied Liberty to continue and permitted it to be lost forever for a country that needed or needs our assistance…

Liberty, once lost, is lost forever — and that is not why Christ came to save all of us…

Only 2 countries have been formed with God as their foundation – Israel and the United States.

God created Israel for His people for He loved them in spite of their fickleness and disobedience to His word.

The people of the Colonies formed on the North American continent so loved God they formed the USA despite their own fickleness and disobedience to His word.

Aren’t we blessed we have such a gracious God despite our fickleness and disobedience to His word?

Don’t be mistaken – He sees when we are reaching out for Him and when not, and we are treated accordingly as a people.

And just as He does not force His will on us, when we are lead by a God-fearing President we do not force our will upon others.

But as God does not allow His people to perish, nor will we allow others to perish…

Once freed, they are at Liberty to form whatever government they so desire – so it isn’t ironic most try to mirror a government of the U.S. and not that of governments that subdue people to their will.

… for where there is Liberty, there is the Spirit of the Lord. – 2 Corinthians 3:17

BANNED DOCUMENTARY: Conspiracy Of Silence (1993)

Conspiracy Of Silence Is a documentary film detailing an alleged child sex scandal that involved many children from a Nebraska Institution, Boys Town, and Lawrence King - or Lawrence "Larry" King.

The organized child sex parties implicated the Reagan and Bush White House during the 1980s.

King was the ringleader of the sex ring which had links to other fellow political conservatives in Washington D.C., including

  • Republican Lobbyist Craig J. Spence
  • Sen. Elizabeth Dole's Staff, along with
  • members of the financial elite of Nebraska

It features former CIA Director William Colby talking about the high-level child kidnap and sex-slave ring.

The book that was the basis of this movie can be found by clicking here.

Reflections from Decisive Liberty

The following stance is stated in the final paragraph of the oration given for the unveiling of our Statue of Liberty on the 28th of October, 1886....

... there is room in America and brotherhood for all who will support our institutions and aid in our development; but those who come to disturb our peace and dethrone our laws are aliens and enemies forever.

You can view the full oration by clicking here.

We at Decisive Liberty are committed to this stance and welcome all - if you have not already - to join us in learning to live by this stance.

There are only 2 nations that have placed God within their Constitution: one was created by God for the people He loves, the other created by the people who love Him.
