And that must be continuously kindled
The lead-in quote (below) from John Adams escaped me until now. It is as profound as they come from our Founders. It was part of the Independence day communication from Patriot Post. It is set forth for that and because Patriot Post is such a valuable organization. The graphic is not from them but from Americans for Limited Government, another fine organization generous with its produced content. Our comments follow.
“But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations. … This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.” —John Adams (1818)
And thus it remains “in the minds and hearts” of Patriots to this day.
On this, our nation’s Celebration of Independence, I invite you to read our primer on Independence Day and our concise exposition on the Unalienable Rights of Man. Read the full text of our “Patriot’s Primer on American Liberty” and purchase the Primer Pocket Guides in bulk for distribution to schools, clubs, etc.
As always, join us in daily prayer for our Patriots in uniform — Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen — and all who stand in harm’s way in defense of Liberty. Pray also for their families.
The Patriot Post is inspired by Patriots, supported by Patriots, and devoted to Patriots. Our mission and operations budgets are funded by — and depend entirely upon — the voluntary financial support of American Patriots like you!
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”
Relating this country’s struggle for independence (and the ongoing struggle to sustain freedom from the yoke of overwhelming levels of government) to the illegal immigration situation will be the subject of an upcoming commentary.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!
