Liberty /ˈlibərdē/ noun
a state of being free from oppressive restrictions imposed by "authority" on one's way of life, behavior, or views
This is a short post. Not many words are needed to make this point. No audio this time. It's a 3-minute read.
Here we go...
The Point (This Week's Bomb)
We The People are the authority.
Don't forget that.
It's plain as day in two documents.
Written 246 years and 231 years ago, respectfully.
I use an analogy of a hand in a glove. The Declaration of Independence is the hand.
The Constitution of the United States is the glove protecting that hand, for protection of Liberty.
The government bureaucrats and entrenched deep state supporting them work for you, American Citizen.
It's past time you use that authority to put the government back in its rightful place...under your heel and in the dirt.
The systems that have enveloped around you for all of our lives are like a snake tightening it's grip. Do you even know it?
"Don't Tread On Me" ring any bells?
Use your glove and that strength in your hand, granted as an American Citizen, and grab that damn snake.
Yeah, it might bite...and there's a remedy for that.

Your Liberty depends upon it.
Immigrants Oath of Allegiance (What?)
Immigrants who wish to become naturalized citizens must take an Oath of Allegiance. It reads:
“I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the Armed Forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God.”
A Citizens Oath to Liberty
I'm creating a Citizens Oath to Liberty over the summer.
If dependent upon any "authority" for a livlihood, there's no Liberty in that. Learn a bit more here.
The basics are where Liberty is found: food; water; shelter; energy; security; barterability; wealth preservation; medicine
Oppressive restrictions can crop up in many forms. Taking the basics listed above:
What happens if food begins being rationed and you haven't made arrangements to produce your own or buy locally?
What happens if the city water system is out of commission because the people who operate it don't have their necessities met allowing them to work as usual?
What happens if the energy grid is offline or your shelter is damaged and supply chains don't have the component parts for repairs?
What happens if all of your "money" is in the bank account digitally, and you can't get to it because of a bank bailin?
What happens if you're dependent upon a medicine and the pharmacy is closed and the supplies from foreign suppliers dry up?
Don't be scared...get prepared. There's Liberty in preparedness and independence, and that keeps "authority" from influencing your life, behavior, and views. The Declaration of Independence states it. The Constitution grants the authority, and Liberty, to you, Citizen.
But it's not guaranteed, and can't be kept passively.
[IN]Dependence Mindset - In Liberty We Must Trust
Separating and retiring "#transitioningmilitary" service men and women must get out of their engrained and dependence mindset the government puts them in. An oath at exit from uniformed, un-informed service is one way to do it.
I'll say this Liberty Oath when I retire from commissioned service a few months from now. Will you?
I'm happy to crowdsource its development to the community.
