My Independence Day Open Letter to Government

By Bernie Suarez

Today I want to openly declare to the current control system what Independence Day means to me and why it is the most important holiday of the year.

Dear controlling (federal) government,

Do you know what today is? That’s right. It’s the one day of the year where we the little people celebrate Independence from you the larger control system. That is after all at the heart of Independence Day. This is the day when individuals with a conscience, not groups like government and corporations but individual human beings get to reminisce on the idea of freedom. And how can we blame humans for doing that? Freedom, after all is the most prized right to yearn for. It’s a right, it’s a moral code, it’s an expectation and desire that all humans quietly yearn for, hope for and dream of. Freedom from you, the government. Freedom from external control and manipulation. Freedom from coercion, intimidation and forced slavery based on fear of harm, fear of being robbed and fear of being locked up. All three of these threats are the essence of what government does, but you already know that.

Governments exist to force others to behave in a certain way in order for that government to maintain its power over you. Whether it’s the issuing of taxes, fines, imprisonment or even execution, the job gets done every time.

Today we celebrate the concept of freedom from that very perpetual enslavement. This is after all the only true freedom that exists. Freedom from coercive and intimidating government to forcefully make you do something you don’t want to do.

There is so much irony in having a nation celebrate “Independence” day just a few weeks prior to the start of Jade Helm 15 and in the center of a massive (Northwoods II style) push for the new world order of enslavement here in the U.S., but nonetheless I want to celebrate this day and remind you (government) that we all still cherish freedom from you.

And no one should be surprised that during this day no one in government or mainstream media will spell it out and honor this day word for word for what it really stands for — Freedom and Independence of the individual. That was, after all, at the heart of America’s independence as reflected in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. Read it, review it and see the magic we little people see in it. Hopefully, it will inspire you and remind you what this is all about.

They say there are two kinds of people in this world: those who want to be free, and those who want to control you. Which are you? Do you really want to be free yourself? Do you think you are already free because you work for government? Think again.

If you had a choice to make a decision that encourages human freedom versus more government control which would you choose? Do you really understand the meaning of this holiday? Do you understand what is happening today, where we’ve been and where we are going? Do you truly understand the meaning of Independence Day?

If you are part of government please take a minute today and meditate on this meaning. I say this only because humanity is in a state of emergency. Freedom really is threatened and the dangers of tyranny are looming greater than ever. The horrors of tyranny are about to repeat and, in fact, are already happening. Humanity, and America in particular, is on the verge of repeating costly mistakes of the past. The clock is almost at midnight and the time to stop this horrific road we are on is running out.

Know that the essence of Independence is freedom; specifically humanity’s freedom from the current control system that you work for. Find that quiet place, then ask yourself: What is life all about? Do you really think you are on earth to work for government then die? Do you think that the meaning of life is to work for government and help the control system? Don’t you think there might be more to this journey that humanity is fighting for, and that might be why government’s job is never easy? Have you thought about the history of humanity’s resistance to tyrannical governments? Have you thought about where your place in history might be? Do you want to be someone who stood for humanity or government?

Independence Day in America is indeed a special day. I’m thankful that we still celebrate this day even if government and its mouthpiece media gloss over it because it represents everything opposite of what they are trying to do to humanity now. I’m also thankful that I can still write this open letter and express my gratitude freely.

I know that if government has their way all forms of free speech will soon be silenced. I know that freedom is not free and governments never stop reaching for more and more power and control. I absolutely realize the fragile nature of freedom and government control. The pendulum can swing in any direction from one day to another.

So on this Independence Day please stop what you are doing and think. With the uncertainties we all face it’s good to remember why we do what we do. I still live in America because I believe in freedom. I understand the principles America was founded on and I believe these are principles that help humanity thrive. I still believe we have every reason to fight for and stand for these principles.

Think about those before you who have given their lives or their freedom for the sake of freedom. Many within government itself have died or been imprisoned fighting for what they believed was the right thing to do and we should remember these people and be inspired by them.

If, however, you feel that your only purpose on earth is to obey government and help government carry out tyranny and control, then realize you are on the wrong side of history. You have today to think about the topic. Think about freedom and what it can do for you. Do you think you can do that for one day?

Realize that there are many of us who can’t even imagine living a life of slavery and we won’t have anything but freedom. Realize that the idea we celebrate today is the greatest threat to a controlling government. Please don’t underestimate freedom and how much some of us really value it. Stare at this Independence Day today face to face and remember what it means. Let the meaning sink in and don’t forget how important this holiday is to many of us.

So today I wave my American flag and the symbolic freedom right in your face and hope you smile with me or are afraid of me. This is consistent with a quote from one of your own kind in government. It was your Thomas Jefferson who said:

When the government fears the people there is liberty, when the people fear the government there is tyranny.

Peace and love,

Human being and lover of freedom

    Standing with you, Bernie Suarez. Freedom cost blood to obtain and to maintain, and patriots are willing to sacrifice theirs in order to keep what was earned by the sacrifices of others.

    • Blood does not create freedom; it creates suffering, hatred, and revenge: violence begets more violence.

      The American Revolution did not create freedom for 99% of the people. Women, those without wealth, native Americans, and slaves were denied freedom, which was guaranteed only for the 1% of rich white males. Jefferson , who wrote “all men are created equal” owned 200 slaves (and freed 9 in his will, including some of his own children); 95% of the Founding Fathers were slave masters.

      In the first national elections, only 1% (literally) were qualifed to vote or run for office. WAshington got 100% of the vote, 43,000. Less than 1.3% of the population voted: the 1790 Census would count a total population of 3.0 million with a free population of 2.4 million and 600,000 slaves in those states casting electoral votes in this election. This excludes hundreds of thousands if not a few million native Americans.

      After black soldiers shed blood in WWII, they came back to a nation where they were not free.

      Today, we are ruled by an oligarchy, in which the people have no influence on legislation and policy, which is dictated by the dominant corporations and their paid hirelings. Debt slavery is the norm: students have a trillion in debt; the average household has 15,000 in debt.

      1/3 of homeowners own their homes, 2/3 have large mortgages, and 1/3 of Americans rent.t b

      Blood has not brought us Freedom, not in the American Revolution, not in WWI, which was followed by the Great Depression, and not from WWII, Vietnam, or Iraq. Bloodshed in fact has robbed us of our wealth. Each year, the US, which spends one trillion a year on defense, pays the banks 200 billion in debt repayment for previous wars, going back to Korea and which will never be paid off. All wars are fought with borrowed money, further enslaving the people in taxes and debt.

      Bloodshed does not secure freedom; it breeds more bloodshed. Did the “war to end all wars” end war? No, it led to a much greater war? Has the War on Terror stamped out terrorism? No, it has caused it to grow like a cancer. Has the bloodshed of 32,000 Americans a year dying from guns created a safe nation? No, it is the least safe of all 35 advanced nations, with a 90% higher gun murder rate and an 80% higher overall murder rate.

      A Harvard study of 2000 arms races in history found that in 98% of the cases, the result was war. Thus when the NRA says we need more guns (the US, with 4% of the world’s population has 33% of all private guns) or the US sell 60 billion to the fascist monarchy of Saudi Arabia, it leads not to peace but to more violence.

      Violence begets violence: that is the most fundamental lesson we can learn from history. And if we do not learn it and continue to think that freedom is achieved with bloodshed, we will only be doomed to more and more bloodshed and less and less freedom.

      • JoAnn Dolberg | July 4, 2015 at 8:25 pm | Reply

        You have your opinion and I have mine. Our military veterans understand the cost of freedom whether our citizens understand or not.. Freedom is bought by blood; it is not created by blood…big difference there. You may or may not be a Christian; but if you are, then you know, for instance, that your spiritual freedom was bought by the blood of Christ. A nation must always fight in order to keep the tyrants at bay; we have lately not done a very good job of that, have we! Go online and study the American history course given by Hillsdale College.

        • Do you think the black veterans who shed blood in WWII and returned to segregation and racism understood the “cost of freedom?” Do you think the hundreds of thousands whose bodies and minds were destroyed killing innocent civilians in Vietnam are free? Do you think the high rate of homicide, suicide, and mental illness of the vets who fought in the criminal war in Iraq are free?

          You have boughret into the war propaganda and lies about freedom. Jesus did not teach that freedom is paid for with bloodshed but to love our enemies and practice compassion.

          The tyrants today are the banks, weapons makers and their paid shills who want to plunge us into more wars, trading our freedom for a false security.

          You are sadly one of the victims of this tyranny. I studied history at the top public and private universities in the world under top scholars. I hardly need advice on my need to study history at a right wing college. I went to the real Harvard on a fellowship. I learned non-violence from Dr. King who, after 400 years of legal oppression, including a brutal war, brought civil rights to not only blacks but all those oppressed.

          If you love your enemy as Jesus taught, you will not advocate shedding bloodshed. As Dr. King taught: “Only love is powerful enough to defeat hatred.” Bloodshed is hatred and it only leads to more bloodshed and more hatred in a cycle of violence. It’s time you learned that essential lesson.

          • JoAnn Dolberg | July 4, 2015 at 10:14 pm |

            You seem to be a very angry person with an agenda and you also seem to think I am ignorant; I am not willing to listen to your rant, so goodbye.

          • dale ruff | July 4, 2015 at 10:26 pm |

            Love and compassion does not create anger, my friend, tho it creates a desire for justice. My agenda is peace and justice. It was you who advised me to study history, so I think your intellectual insecurity is in evidence as I pointed out my background. I have no rant, only valuable lessons and important questions, which you appear unable to deal with, choosing instead to make personal accusations, a sign of denial.

            Lesson #1, you cannot create either peace or justice with bloodshed.
            Lesson #2. if you deny your own anger,you will project it onto others.

          • The Penitent Man | July 5, 2015 at 8:32 am |

            Well, I believe your education was a liberal one, based on many historical inaccuracies. You wrote:

            “I studied history at the top public and private universities in the world under top scholars”.

            The problem with your statement is that it doesn’t take into account the false history all of us were sold by these mainstream institutions. Napoleon said that “History are lies agreed upon” and “The victors write history” and I concur with Napoleon, he was perfectly correct. Raul Hilberg, the preeminent Jewish Holocaust historian was put on the stand in Canada and cross examined by a lawyer named Doug Christie (During the Ernst Zundel trial, which eventually made it to the Canadian Supreme Court were Zundel eventually won his case).

            Raul Hilberg didn’t survive that cross examination, nor did many of his assumptions on the alleged Holocaust of WWII. Hilberg couldn’t offer up any scientific evidence to support his claims and couldn’t produce a single document to lend credence to his theories. Suffice it to say, Hilberg declined to show up as a witness for the prosecution in the second iteration of the trial, as did many “eyewitnesses” which Doug Christie cross examined. Christie revealed that many exaggerations and outright lies had been told concerning the “historical” events surrounding WWII and did a great service for freedom of speech and truth those many years ago.

            Since then the climate in academia is even worse. Lies are the rule of the day. “Truth is no defense” is their motto, their battle cry. Does truth need laws to defend it? I thought the truth could stand on its own?

            As for the shedding of blood to protect and procure freedom, it is a truism. I abhor violence but without self defense we’d all be literal slaves. As Mao said, politcal power comes from the barrel of a gun. Good people do what they must to protect their families and their nation. Violence is a last resort.

            Unfortunately, your liberal education and your liberal scholars uphold the current paradigm of violence and invasion. The Democrats were all over Bush for his efforts to destroy the Bill of Rights, going to war in the middle east, but as soon as Obama won the presidency all of their criticisms withered and died. Obama supported the Patriot Act, passed the NDAA in which American citizens could be assassinated without any judicial examination (no more Habeas Corpus and many other rights) and camp X-ray is still operating, not to mention a hundred other facilities in which torture goes on.

            Though I hold to a conservative viewpoint on certain issues I do not support the Republican party, or any party for that matter. The Hegelian dialectic is at work in this nation, both parties are responsible for our current downfall. Voting, currently, is a senseless act. It only helps to continue this present evil system. Should Americans pick up their rifles and start a bloody revolution? No, that would be horrible thing.

            Civil disobedience would be a good place to start. What would happen if tens of millions of Americans came together and stopped the machine? Would this police state gun all of us down? Or would something unexpected happen? It’s hard to say what would happen but it would surely be an awesome thing to witness, regardless the outcome.

          • dale ruff | July 6, 2015 at 1:51 pm |

            You are the last person on earth to denounce the historical record:

            you wrote, to prove how “liberal” historians distort the record ” Zundel eventually won his case”

            “In Canada, during an earlier trial in 1985, Zündel had been sentenced to 15 months in prison. That sentence was thrown out in 1987. A new trial began on January 18, 1988.

            On May 13, 1988, Ernst Zündel was sentenced by Judge Ronald Thomas of the District Court of Ontario, in Toronto, to nine months in prison for having distributed a Revisionist booklet that is now 14 years old: Did Six Million Really Die?”

            source: Robert Faurisson, who defended Zundel.

            I think I will rest the case with that.

          • The Penitent Man | July 7, 2015 at 8:15 am |

            And you would, wouldn’t you? Why did you leave out the part where the Canadian Supreme court exonerated Zundel of all such charges?

            On appeal, Canada ‘s Supreme Court threw out the conviction, declaring on August 27, 1992, that the archaic “false news” law under which he had been convicted was a violation of the country’s Charter of Rights. This was not only a personal vindication by Canada ‘s highest court; Ernst Zundel secured an important victory for the rights of all Canadians.

            It seems like you’re the last person on earth anyone should trust when it comes to the historical record, considering you chose to ignore the highest court ruling in the land. You’ve proved my point for me in a most beautiful way, thank you.


            Unlike you, Ernst Zundel is a man of true integrity, he put his money were his mouth is and suffered greatly at the hands of the enemies of freedom everywhere.

          • dale ruff | July 7, 2015 at 8:36 am |

            “On February 5, 2003, Ernst Zündel was detained by local police in the U.S. and deported to Canada, where he was detained for two years on a Security Certificate for being a foreign national considered a threat to national security pending a court decision on the validity of the certificate. Once the certificate was upheld, he was deported to Germany and tried in the state court of Mannheim on outstanding charges of incitement of Holocaust denial dating from the early 1990s. On February 15, 2007, he was convicted and sentenced to the maximum term of five years in prison. All these imprisonments and prosecutions were for inciting hatred against an identifiable group.”

            My favorite book by Zundel is The Hitler We Loved and Why. Do you admire this loving homage to the Fuhrer? What a man of integrity: few have the moral substance to stand up for the noble Hitler and the cause of liberty as you do in your defense of Zundel.

          • The Penitent Man | July 16, 2015 at 8:12 pm |

            What is your point? That Zundel’s life was ruined by vindictive Jewish organizations that want to destroy freedom of speech in all European nations, including the United States? The man was thrown in prison in Germany for speaking freely in Canada and the U.S., do you consider that justice? He spent seven years in a German prison for “denying the Holocaust” and the German judge said “Truth is not a defense”!

            Is that the kind of world you want to live in, where people aren’t allowed to speak the truth and are thrown in prison for thought crimes just because they hold different views then you or the mainstream? Again, “Truth is not a defense”. You should dig into the details of those trials. Facts and evidences were brought up which proved that millions of Jews did not die by homicidal gas chambers or any other method.

            Zundel can believe what he wants to believe about Hitler. It has nothing to do with me, nor does it threaten me in the least. Apparently you really don’t believe in freedom at all. You believe in freedom of speech for some but not all. The fact is freedom comes with a cost. Some people say and believe in repugnant things. In this country people died so those people could have the freedom to say and believe what they like.

            You’re an enemy of freedom.

          • dale ruff | July 16, 2015 at 9:22 pm |

            And Zundel, who wrote The Hitler we Loved and Why, is a champion of freedom.? Hate speech is the prelude to hate crimes. We do not have the protected freedom to libel people or incite discrimination or violence with vicious lies. That is not free speech; that is the slaughter of free speech.

            I am an enemy of hate speech, which crushes the rights of others. You should be ashamed to defend a man who worshipped Hitler. It is clear that you also love Hitler, deny the Holocaust, and espouse white supremacy. Why else would you defend such an evil man.

            There is no freedom to spread hatred. Hatred is the killer of freedom. I accuse you of defending vile Nazi, a man who denies the Holocaust, a man who loved Hitler and tried all his life to spread the venom which led to the murder of tens of millions. For YOU to call me an enemy of freedom I wear as a badge of honor, coming from a Nazi.

          • Reverend Draco | July 6, 2015 at 1:34 pm |

            I guess all of the biblical references to the “Blood of Christ” were made up by Atheists to persecute you? That only through the Blood of Christ can one find salvation?

            I knew the bible was a muddled mess of made-up crap. . . your claims, and the ignorance which disproves them – pretty much nails the lid shut – the bible is a collection of Bronze Age superstition and fairy tales.
            The End.

          • dale ruff | July 6, 2015 at 1:46 pm |

            Are you under the illusion that Jesus wrote the Bible. Jesus taught love and compassion. All that sick blood stuff was added later as a way to suck in gullible fools and bury his true message, which is not about bloodshed but kindness and compassion.

            Jesus was the the Prince of Peace, not the Prince of Bloodshed. I have been a Christian atheist for 50 years, following his ethical teachings and rejected the bullshit added on later. Jesus brought to the Middle East the message of Buddha, of unconditional compassion. His message was hijacked and perverted. Jefferson edited all the supernatural nonsense out of the NT and created a Bible based on the ethical teachings only.

            It’s hard to reconcile love your enemy with war.

          • Reverend Draco | July 6, 2015 at 1:54 pm |

            No harder than it is to reconcile loving one’s children with “spare the rod, spoil the child.”

            And no, I’m not under the illusion that Hey Zeus wrote the bible. I’m not under the illusion that any sane person wrote it, either.

            What sort of vapid brainlessness does it take to pattern one’s life after the hallucinations of illiterate desert nomads drunk on fermented camel piss?

          • dale ruff | July 6, 2015 at 2:16 pm |

            Any adult who would beat a child with, a rod and claim it was done out of love is very very sick. If you hit your children, you should be locked up for assault as you would if you hit an adult. Studies show that the population of child abusers arises out of those who have been abused.

            Compassion is rooted in the recognition that we all (including animals) feel, suffer, and thus we are all brothers and sisters. Compassion leads to mercy and kindness,not brutality, whipping children or bloodshed.

            Compassion is not born of vapid brainlessness but deep awareness of our commonality.

            If a person says I hit my child out of love, he is both sick and lying. Only love has the power to defeat hatred. Violence begets violence: that is the essential lesson of life.

          • Reverend Draco | July 6, 2015 at 2:39 pm |

            I’ve got news for ya, Sparkles – that quote is right out of your Big Book of Fairy Tales, which is either Gospel or fabrication. . .

          • dale ruff | July 6, 2015 at 2:48 pm |

            I’ve got news for you: I have been an atheist for 60 years, but I also understand that the basic lesson of life is compassion. You seem to be arguing with someone who agrees with you. I don’t know why. Perhaps I missed your sarcasm, which means my response was in agreement with your point. What is your point?

          • Reverend Draco | July 6, 2015 at 2:55 pm |

            Ahh. . . from Christian to Atheist that fast.
            It’s a new world’s record!


          • dale ruff | July 6, 2015 at 3:28 pm |

            Not really Reverend. Like Jefferson, I follow the ethical teachings of Jesus on compassion and reject the religious bullshit. You are pat hetic not to understand that a valid moral message has been perverted by religious bureaucrats.

            I have followed the teachings of compassion as an atheist for 55 years. If the teachings of Jesus were not available, I would have learned it from the Buddha, and if he had not taught this lesson, I would have learned it from life. I also deepened it by marching with Dr. King.

            You seem a sad sort of person, looking for reasons to ridicule instead of reasons to love and embrace.

          • Reverend Draco | July 6, 2015 at 3:30 pm |

            Nahh. . . just looking for reasons to put pig-ignorant fuckwits in their place.

            You’re making it too easy.

      • The Penitent Man | July 5, 2015 at 8:08 am | Reply

        I agree with some of what you wrote but you are using very inaccurate figures concerning Native Americans. First off, there were never “millions and millions” of Native Americans in North America, that is a myth. Indian people recorded their numbers and their migration habits. They recorded these things on Buffalo skins and they are called “Winter Counts”. Believe it or not, the current numbers of today represent the numbers from two centuries ago, minus the small tribes that were ethnically cleansed from this earth. The Navajo tribe has actually grown, as have a few other tribes. The plains Indians tribes are at about the same strength they were back in the 1860’s.

        Having said that I do agree with a lot of what you have written, though I think it is a mistake to use the racially divisive “white males” thing. Call them what they are, the ruling class. There were over 3000 Black slave owners in the Republic before and during the “Civil war” (even though we never fought a civil war on American soil, unless you count the Revolutionary war, which fits the definition much better then the war that was fought between 1860-1865).

        We were being ruled by an Oligarchy immediately after the Revolutionary war, people are just ignorant of what was transpiring at the time. Their powers greatly increased after the constitutional convention of 1787 and the establishment of the First Bank of the United States. After that it was all down hill for the United States. We were mired in conflict after conflict on American soil, everything from the War of 1812 to the War of Northern Aggression (the War of the Federal Government on the Southern States) to the Indian wars. all wars are banker wars.

        The 14th amendment sealed all of our fates. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 was the last nail in the coffin.

  2. I suggest this letter be sent to the transnational corporations which have taken control of our government. We need to go after the puppet-masters, not their puppets.

    • The Penitent Man | July 5, 2015 at 7:55 am | Reply

      But that’s just a ruse, a clever mask the powers that be wear to confuse and hide their real base of power (International Banking Cabal). Our government died in earnest in 1913, when congress handed over all financial powers to a group of private bankers. Corporations are nothing, just a symptom that branches off from the foundational poison of their Fractional Reserve Banking scam. The corporations are sock-puppets, they hide from sight using corporate law, the institution of a corporation being a “person” so no one individual can be held responsible for their many evils.

      As long as the International Bankers and their nefariously evil system is allowed to continue we will never see freedom or justice on our shores or anywhere in the west. They are hell bent on destroying our people and our culture, for we are the only people who pose a real and present danger in toppling their stranglehold on humanity.

  3. Prior service members understand this, others do not until the wolf knocks at the door and it’s their problem. The sheeple masses expect someone else to stand up, someone else to make noise, someone else to be the victim. All they want to do is reap the rewards of freedom and liberty provided there is no cost to them. They want to believe someone else will do what’s necessary.

    Because so many have come to expect this, because so many feel ENTITLED it has reached the point it’s at. So when you want Freedom and Liberty, but want no cost, expect more of the same. Nothing is for free and nothing is without cost. You have allowed things to get out of control by choice. You allowed yourself to become a slave.

    It is not completely your fault. Government understands Psyops and Propaganda and unless you are prior service you wouldn’t notice it’s being used on you. This is why government has now stated terrorist’s are likely to be prior service personnel. They know those that understand the levers of Psychological warfare will see what is happening, what is being implemented.

    To say that we resemble Nazi Germany is not a stretch but in fact an evolving daily reality. We are told contact your representatives, yet none listen. We are told to vote them out, yet no difference is offered or made. We see false flag operations picking up pace, false realities being offered, police being militarized, government seizing power, passing bills with no input of the people or by the people, fracturing of the country through divide and conquer agenda’s, imposing their will on all.

    All initially being incremented so slowly none noticed it happen, yet the speed is now in fast acceleration and care to the wind. The Patriot act has allowed them to legally silence those that oppose their will. This is Tyranny, not Freedom. The wolf is at everyone’s door and unless we all wake up and stand and be counted we will all deserve what is on the way.

    No soldier wants war, no soldier wants blood, it is a last resort. But all systems are failing and because people are turning their head and not standing up the cost from those that do should weigh heavily on the conscious of those who run and hide. This isn’t one persons fight, this is a countries fight to exist! Stop sticking your head in the sand and assuming everything will be okay, because it won’t.

    If you think it will all go away, if you think you can vote it out, if you think it’s just a conspiracy, you aren’t paying attention!

  4. The recognized experts on Jefferson’s writing and speeches reports:

    ” We have not found any evidence that Thomas Jefferson said or wrote, “When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny,” nor any evidence that he wrote its listed variations.”

    Bloodshed does not create justice or peace, just more hatred and more bloodshed. Only love is powerful enough to defeat hatred. War is a racket, and those who fight in them are victims fed lies. Violence begets violence: that is the essential lesson we must learn to avoid further bloodshed, which brings not freedom but suffering and hatred and more bloodshed.

    America is not free. The Founding fathers were (95%) slave owners, and in the first elections only 1% of rich white males could vote or run for office. Jefferson owned 200 slaves and even his 6 children with his slave concubine were slaves; he freed 9 in his will. War is a racket, and those who praise bloodshed as the price of freedom fail to inform you that bloodshed does not bring freedom but only more violence. Is Afghanistan free? Is Iraq free? Is Libya free? Is Syria Free? Is Gaza free. This is where the blood has been shed in recent years, and it has brought only chaos, suffering, and more violence.

    The American Revolution did not bring freedom to the people, to the 99% who were native Americans, slaves, those without wealth, and women. It brought freedom to the 1%. Today,
    America is not free: it has more people and a much higher rate of incarceration than any nation on earth, more than China and India combined, which have 8 times more people. The illusion of freedom is how people are enslaved.

    Here are some sources of this insight from our most liberated minds: (George Carlin speaks of war)

    “The illusion of freedom will continue as long as it’s profitable to continue the illusion. At the point where the illusion becomes too expensive to maintain, they will just take down the scenery, they will pull back the curtains, they will move the tables and chairs out of the way and you will see the brick wall at the back of the theater.” Frank Zappa

    And here is George Orwell:

    “Political language… is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.

    War against a foreign country only happens when the moneyed classes think they are going to profit from it.

    One of the most horrible features of war is that all the war-propaganda, all the screaming and lies and hatred, comes invariably from people who are not fighting.”


    And here is the word on patriotic bloodshed from a veteran of 33 years:

    ““I spent thirty-three years and four months in active military service as a member of this country’s most agile military force, the Marine Corps. I served in all commissioned ranks from Second Lieutenant to Major-General. And during that period, I spent most of my time being a high class muscle-man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the Bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism.”

    “WAR is a racket. It always has been.
    It is possibly the oldest, easily the most profitable, surely the most vicious. It is the only one
    international in scope. It is the only one in which the profits are reckoned in dollars and the
    losses in lives.”
    ― Smedley D. Butler, War Is a Racket

    Finally, the word of a man who won the Nobel Peace Price after helping plan the slaughter of 3 million innocent civilians in Vietnam, which also took 50,000 American lives:

    “Military men are just dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns in foreign policy.”
    ― Henry Kissinger

    This is what the men who send us to war think of us.

    • Dale, thanks for your insightful comments. Yes the founding fathers were slave holders; however freedom is generally won in stages, not in one big leap. When you plant a seed it takes time to reap a harvest. Each generation has their responsibility to sow seeds of freedom and reap the harvest.

      • As long as we keep referring to our national organization as our government, we have no linguistic or logical right to expect a land of the free. What does govern mean? Does it not mean to rule over or control you? I would think what we really desire are serverments not governments. You can expect governments to control you and serverments to serve and cooperate with you.

        Either way, I think we have proof to conclude that we’ve all been scammed. It goes back to 1787 and the constitutional convention. War indeed is a racket, but fighting for one’s freedom is not. There are wars and there are wars, not all wars are equal. Patriotism can be a serious danger to a nation. Tyrants have used it for centuries and will continue to use it. Bush used it after 911 to justify killing millions of Iraqis. It led to the overthrow of Saddam and led to Qaddafi being murdered by a bunch of terrorists.

        Look at the middle east after America decided to intervene in their affairs. We’ve destabilized the entire region and non of it benefits America. These wars have created real threats to our National Security, they have not taken those threats away. The old Roman saying “Who Benefits” should really be the question of today. Who benefits from these wars? We certainly don’t.

      • Over 200 years later, whites households have 13 times more wealth than blacks, half the unemployment, 1/6 the incarceration rate, and live 5 years longer.

        Freedom was not won for blacks or native Americans, and centuries later, they still suffer from racism.
        Black churches are still burned, the criminal justice and educational and financial systems all disadvantage blacks (and Latinos and native Americans).

        Wikpedia summarizes the continuing segregation:

        ” Education is also used as a means to perpetuate hypersegregation. Real estate agents often implicitly use school racial composition as a way of enticing white buyers into the segregated ring surrounding the inner-city[83]

        The percentage of black children who now go to integrated public schools is at its lowest level since 1968.[84] The words of “American apartheid” have been used in reference to the disparity between white and black schools in America. Those who compare this inequality to apartheid frequently point to unequal funding for predominantly black schools.[85]

        In Chicago, by the academic year 2002–2003, 87 percent of public-school enrollment was black or Hispanic; less than 10 percent of children in the schools were white. In Washington, D.C., 94 percent of children were black or Hispanic; less than 5 percent were white.”

        Znet magazine reported “Modern prisoners occupy the lowest rungs on the social class ladder, and they always have. The modern prison system (along with local jails) is a collection of ghettos or poorhouses reserved primarily for the unskilled, the uneducated, and the powerless. In increasing numbers this system is being reserved for racial minorities, especially blacks, which is why we are calling it the New American Apartheid.”

        So educational segregation is at its highest level in 45 years and prisons are increasingly reserved for minorities. In the 2008-9 recession, blacks lost almost all of their meager wealth.

        My point is that illusions about freedom, planting the seeds of freedom, and progress ultimately prevent us from creating a free society. If you don’t admit the problem (as many have been claiming “There is no more racism” since Obama was elected), we can never confront. Less than a year ago, the Supreme Court eviscerated the Voting Rights Act (the Constitution never established the right to vote, which was in early elections denied to 99%) with the argument that racism is no longer a factor in formerly very racist states, allowing discrimnatory voting laws which apply disproportionately to minorities.

        The analogy of freedom to a seed is flawed. Seeds do not reverse course, get worse, more restrictive, overturn laws which guarantee such things as voting rights. Freedom is a condition, which was never intended by the Constitution for women, blacks, natives, or those without wealth. In time, women won the right to vote but just last year, the Republicans rejected he Equal Pay Bill.

        For the most part, the word freedom is a propaganda term used to induce people to accept unfree conditions and to fight for the profits of the military/industrial complex.
        The easiest way to keep people in slavery is to brainwash them with patriotism and historical myths that they are already free and all they must do is shed their blood to preserve it.

    • don’t normally agree with you, but you are spot on here.

  5. As my personal hero Smedley would say “Wars a RACKET” Semper Fi Smedley where ever you are.

    Time to take’er back!!!!

  6. The time is coming when everyone will have to at least consider whether the “dale ruff” type of phenomenon on truth blogs like these are not only trolls but possibly even a government operated software generating predictable arguments designed to divide.

    Anyone ask the simple question- Why does “dale ruff” visit activist post at all since his opinions vary so greatly from its writers?? Eyes open. The enemy is everywhere…

  7. The US Declaration of Independence states:

    “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, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,”

    I don’t know, I think that the Constitution, or the belief that it was written for us is a huge myth. The men behind the Revolutionary war were mainly the aristocracy of their day (Jefferson, Washington, Franklin, etc.) and started the revolution because the English King was biting into their profits. They figured out a clever way to get the common men to do their fighting for them (Declaration of Independence) by using rhetoric and high-minded principles about individual freedom and liberty. The common people got behind them and shed their blood for those principles.

    When all those farmers, coopers, carpenters, shoe makers, blacksmiths, etc. returned to their homes after fighting the Revolutionary war they returned to find out that their homes had been taken from them. While they were away fighting for freedom the bankers and rich bastards had foreclosed on their farms and businesses. They were left poor and destitute on the continent they had just shed their blood for.

    So what happened to all that high-minded propaganda from Jefferson? Where were those noble men now, now that the common men who won that war needed them?

    They were all busy planning a secret meeting that would change the law of the land in their favor and would make the states and the people perpetual debt slaves. Alexander Hamilton and the Federalists had been drafting a new constitution, a new constitution that would replace the current constitution, called “The Articles of Confederation”. They unlawfully held a constitutional convention (1787) and began the process by holding a series of secret meetings on the matter. Patrick Henry vehemently opposed the new constitution and said:

    ” Another beautiful feature of this Constitution is, the publication from time to time of the receipts and expenditures of the public money. This expression, from time to time, is very indefinite and
    indeterminate: it may extend to a century. Grant that any of them are wicked; they may squander the public money so as to ruin you, and yet this expression will give you no redress.”

    “This Constitution is said to have beautiful features; but when I come to examine these features, sir, they appear to me horribly frightful. Among other deformities, it has an awful squinting; it squints toward monarchy; and does not this raise indignation in the breast of every true American?”

    “Your President may easily become king. Your Senate is so imperfectly constructed that your dearest rights may be sacrificed by what may be a small minority; and a very small minority may continue forever unchangeably this government, although horridly defective. Where are your checks in this government? Your strongholds will be in the hands of your enemies. It is on a supposition that your American governors shall be honest, that all the good qualities of this government are founded;
    but its defective and imperfect construction puts it in their power to perpetrate the worst of mischiefs, should they be bad men; and, sir, would not all the World, from the eastern to the western hemisphere, blame our distracted folly in resting our rights upon the contingency of our rulers being good or bad?”

    And Patrick Henry wasn’t the only hero from the Revolutionary war to detest the new constitution, nor are the words he wrote in condemnation of the new constitution the strongest against it. There are many, many more on the dangers of the new constitution and how if ratified, would eventually destroy the United States of America.

    Now, some 228 years later, Patrick Henry’s words have been justified. All of his fears have come to fruition as the Federal government under the new constitution has destroyed America. To lay all the blame at the feet of Obama is a shallow argument. This problem goes back to the founding of the nation. The Constitution of 1787 has undone the confederacy, it has made all of us debt slaves. It has taken away our sovereignty and has given unrestricted power to a central government, a Federal government, tucked far away from the vast majority of American people in the District of Criminals, i.e., Washington D.C, were all types of atrocities and deceptions go on unabated in the dead of night, under the shadow of secrecy.

    The bankers rule America now. They finally won their war in 1913, with the creation of the Federal Reserve and the IRS (and many other nefarious organizations which sprouted up right around that same time period). We were warned by some of the forefathers, to keep and guard this nation against the plans and machinations of the International bankers, but we didn’t listen. Now we are reaping the fruits of our lack of discernment. Our nation is crumbling in all around us.
