One of the hardest things any American can do — and should do — is protect the liberty and freedoms of those you don’t like, even those who haven’t a clue what either are…

They will claim they do, yet a few quick questions or shortly into a conversation with them, you discover their beliefs are skewed.

Do note, that hardly means you need to protect the rights and liberties of a psychotic who intentionally means to do anything but good — if they have a vendetta against you, then make them known to everyone you know with everything they have sent you, and be sure to pray for them (whoever thought Saul of Tauras can be used by God to write most of the New Testament?).

Protection of liberties and rights
is perhaps the most fundamental political value
in our country.

The people who test your liberties and rights in private, in public, in our courts are not always ideal citizens – as you learn that things happen FOR you not TO you then the less power anyone can have over you; this is the same mindset our Founding Fathers had from the get-go.

What most fail to realize is liberty and rights refer to different protections.

Liberties are protections against government actions while rights refer to positive actions a govt should take in order to attempt to create as nearly equal conditions as possible for all Americans.

In other words…

Liberties protect us
FROM our government, while
Rights are conditions
our government provides FOR us

The 2 need to be discerned as totally different — confusing them will mean losing both of them and we have been at that precipice for far too long.

Many Globalist candidates want conditions for our country that can only result in the loss of liberties for the sake of gaining rights — that imbalance has already been tried in many failed governments, and to quote Hillary, “At this point, what difference does it make?”

It makes all the difference in the world.

The archives of any country will bear this out…

Every liberty that has been lost
by any country,
any sovereignty,
any organization,
any committee
is lost forever. Period.

Once our Founding Fathers knew they had to draft a Constitution, John Adams bought and shipped from Europe every book that was written about government history — more than 350 books in all.

What they learned from these books assisted them to come up with a Constitution that would instill strengths in the power of the people and would reiterate what limitations can be applied to the government yet allow it to still be powerful enough to protect us from enemies within and abroad.

To give up liberties so to have an imbalance of rights has been the experiment of Central and South America —

This experiment resulted in at worst, disastrous results; at best, with non-existent freedom accompanied by a false democracy that fails to provide much of any liberties (‘false democracy’ in essence is a system based on the principle of untrammeled majority rule, subject to neither law nor tradition – this should sound familiar to most today).

There have been and presently are plenty of countries that provide a form of Liberty but little or no rights — in the past their governments have failed every time, as the current governments will as well.

Nationalism depends upon the balance of free capitalism, freedom, and liberty.

Globalism, now the politically correct term for the New World Order, depends on expanding rights to its own, feigning a false sense of freedom to the people, and forsaking liberty of their enemies which eventually leads to forsaking liberty of their own as well.

The left will argue those points as false but they cannot provide any irrefutable evidence that solidly contradicts these facts.

Given these differences — of true democracy and false, of taking a stance to protect even our enemy from losing their liberty — there is only ONE person that has a record of favoring a false democracy as well as forsaking not only our liberties but those of our enemies as well.

And the other already has the record that proves they will support a true democracy as well as defend liberty even of our enemies.

Your focus needs to shift to and remain on this – only one of these two will abide by the stance that liberty must take with both friend and foe alike…

 

He 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.
~ Thomas Paine

Died Suddenly - Conspiracy No More

Please view the Trailer for this video first. The graphic imagery is intentional as it is the only way you will know what is happening; Big Pharma is counting on you NOT knowing what is really happening.

The trailer can be viewed by clicking here (opens in our rumble account).

The audio and the video is NOT suitable for children - please view when they are not present (use earphones or headset to keep young ears from listening in).

From the Directors of 'These Little Ones' and 'Watch the Water'

Embalmers and funeral homes see the results of what has been happening for the past 2 years - something is WAY different, it isn't good, and they aren't happy...

Life insurance companies are fully aware of the results the embalmers and funeral directors are seeing and reporting.

Sudden Adult Death Syyndrome (SADS) is NOT a syndrome - it is a result of foreign substances that are in the vaccines, one of them being Graphene Oxide, that are create inorganic strings in the blood system that eventually stops the blood, dead.

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.

We are but 1 of 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.
