Thanks for that link. It'll be interesting to see their progress.
I hope taking $ from foundations doesn't compromise them.

Them's some mighty noble words, and it's the duty of each and every one of us not to let the vision of the founding fathers go by the wayside - it's our duty! So what are we waiting for - see you all at the revolution, soon!

I know it's kinda off topic... but I thought it might be "light-relief" for regulars here to know (those who recognize me as a reg. poster anyway..)
I became a dad this morning at 1:30am... my point isn't to brag about my daughters birth... I just wanted to point out the name we've chosen... "Nicole"
It means "Victory for the people".
It's my sincerest hope for the future and seemed appropriate considering the day... we will have our victory yet.

I can only hope and pray that our "Victory" will be soon in coming. Its seems to me with all the secrets coming out this weekend that the ball is starting to roll and hopefully no one can stop it! Happy Independence Day to all the patriots of this great country!

Happy Birthday Nicole!
Congrats to the M3 family!
As a lifetime teacher and longtime parent, my recipe for wonderful children is always the same:
Love the child. Read to the child. Don't hit the child. Discipline. Turn off the TV.
But y'all knew that.
Happy 4th to all y'all!

Thanks for posting The Declaration of Independence. It's eerie, to note the similarity in some of the perceived abuses against our citizens and nation, occurring again.
More people need to be reminded of it.
Keep up the good work on the vote scandal, too - we need to ensure that all votes are counted, particularly in the 2006 and 2008 elections. Our vote counts for nothing if we can't count on our vote being counted.
Or something like that.
...a special "Thank You" to Winter Patriot (http://winterpatriot.blogspot.com), and the Whispering Campaign (http://psstpsstpsst.blogspot.com/), for posting "Ten Characteristics of A True US Patriot" .
To all - a very safe and happy Independence Day.

That second paragraph brings up a tear and a little choke in my throat every time I read it.
Thank you Thomas Jefferson and the early patriots of our nation for giving us a clear, eloquent statement of the truth and beauty of human dignity and the necessity to secure it against its enemies.
Thank you for strengthening our hearts and providing us with a beacon to light the way in our own struggles.
Onward with Mr. Jefferson, Mr. Adams, Mr. Franklin, Mr. Livingston, Mr. Sherman and all the other lovers of freedom at our side as we once more secure "Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness"; as we "institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to (us) shall seem most likely to effect (our) Safety and Happiness"; as we exercise our right and duty to throw off Despotism and provide new Guards for the future security of liberty.
Best wishes M3, Nicole, and family and to Brad and all you wonderful Brad Bloggers on Independence Day.

The flag of the United States of America, according to the US flag code adopted by Congress, “represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing.”
Just as no political party has a lock on what it means to be a patriotic American, no political party owns the flag of the United States of America. The flag, as a living symbol of the ideals of this country, belongs to each and every one of us. And each and every one of us is responsible for its care.
That care and responsibility extends well beyond making sure a flag flown at night is illuminated properly or never touches the ground, it extends to accepting responsibility for what is done in our name under the auspices of that flag.
Going to war, for example.
As Americans, when our government decides to go to war, in our name, we need to know why we have chosen to destroy the lives of not only our own citizens, but the lives of citizens of other countries.
We all know, during war, people die. Homes are destroyed, land is poisoned. Generations of families are forever altered.
So, it is not only our responsibility; it is our right and our duty to ask the question, “Mr. President, why are we going to war?”
Millions of us around the globe did just that.
President Bush answered us by saying, in an address to the country on October 16, 2002, “I have not ordered the use of force. I hope the use of force will not become necessary.”
Over the months leading up to the invasion of Iraq, Mr. Bush uttered other words, not only strongly suggesting that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, but that it was Iraq’s obligation to produce those weapons to avoid an invasion.
Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, then National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice and Vice President Richard Cheney made their own assertions along those lines. We all remember that, right?
Problem was, of course, Iraq didn’t have weapons of mass destruction.
Problem was, of course, Iraq had no connections to al Qaeda.
Problem was, of course, the inspectors were in Iraq, finding nothing, because there was nothing to find.
Problem is, of course, Bush sent our young men and women into war anyway.
The recently released Downing Street Memo, which has received little attention in America’s mostly corporate owned media, contradicts Mr. Bush’s assertions. Whatever anyone’s opinion of President Bush, the Downing Street Memo is something all citizens of this country have a duty to the “living thing” that represents a “living country,” to read.

Thank you so much for posting the Declaration, and I sincerely hope everyone goes easy on the scroll button...READ IT! Read the Constitution! Look around! 95% (my one-off estimate) of ALL government activities for the past--(?)--well, few decades, anyway, are COMPLETELY UNCONSTITUTIONAL. And here's the fun part (if you can get some glue on it )---If I'm not mistaken, Bush, as well as all presidents of the united States, took an oath to uphold the constitution, defend the American people, etc. I don't care if nothing even comes of Downing Street or Ohio and we never hear about them again beginning now, George W. Bush (along with ANYONE involved in our system of legislation, etc. who took an oath before entering office---better get a mighty big broom!) can right this very minute, with AMPLE evidence, be charged with TREASON, FRAUD, the list goes on...the only problem is, it means completely reconfiguring what the poor, uninformed general public THINKS of as our system of government.
So to paraphrase (and extrapolate a bit), we can make things right in this country, people. As daunting as it may seem, just look at it this way: we don't have to lobby, legislate, invent or in any way fabricate positive changes at all (phew!). All we have to do is remind people of what we were given by our forefathers, now completely buried in beaurocracy, partisan pettiness, greed, etc. It will be MUCH easier for us to simply assist the general public in "digging up" their freedom than to fight these overfed aristocrats in their own home field, playing their games by their rules. Just thought I'd add that to all this activity I've (fairly newly) discovered here. I very dearly hope that it helps even one person stop, think, and be a true patriot by INFORMING those around them: one of the purest expressions of freedom and love/respect for one's community (in my opinion).
My best to everyone, and I look forward to posting here, networking with everyone, and just wreaking general havoc for those that plot and design the defamation and destruction of MY America (ok, ok--you can have some America, too. But you gotta work for it! )

Congratulations M3 family! Nicole is blessed to have come into a family fighting for the things we love about our country. And you are blessed to have a pure, innocent soul in your life reminding you of the future we're all fighting for!
Very cool ad running on the corporate cable so-called news shows. It's UNBRAND AMERICA and you can see it at their website. Donations will get it more airtime!

To all you fine people I wish from the bottom of my big American vigorously dissenting heart, a most excellant 4th of July.
Now if you can, you must listen to this mp3 of the efforts by the Army to courts martial an American soldier for speaking out against the war. It is gut wrenching to me and causes me to rise against this criminal government and say as loudly and as long as I can that they will not *ever* suffocate dissent. That they will not *ever* prevail against us. That they will not *ever* have our country. And that we have yet just begun to fight.

You are all liberal rapscallion one-percenter loser colonists who fail to recognize the supreme authority of King George, who rules autocratically in accordance with God's supreme will.
How dare you challenge his royal authority and question his leadership. George is the king, and the king rules, and your silly, sotted rebellion is merely a conspiracy theory attended to by pub-house ruffians who deserve not their powdered wigs or paper for their useless, whining petitions or the inked quills with which to sign them.
Be gone with the lot of you. The British Empire: Love it or leave it!

Just wanted to briefly add this, so long as we're all feeling sentimental and quantifying our enemy, the threat they pose, and calling them out by name...
Now, some might say that this is just semantics, but I would counter that, in fact the importance of knowing EXACTLY what you stand for/against is immeasurable. This in addition to the fact that so long as we're celebrating/thanking our forefathers for what they did, maybe we should stop and consider what they actually meant and why. Now, the next sentence may come as a heart-stopper to most of you, so brace yourselves...the founding fathers of the united States of America DETESTED democracy. We are NOT (supposed to be) a democracy. We are (supposed to be) a republic. Democracy seems like a good idea for about a second or two when truthfully considered, until one realizes that it means "mob rules". In a republic, the majority cannot dictate your life to you simply by putting it to a vote. I hear the word "democracy" thrown around so much these days...well, you can have it, cuz I want my nation cooked "republic", thanks. (Oh, and so long as we're revealing things that upset the way Americans view their world, there's no Santa Clause. Yeah, I know, I know--I was devastated too...)

#31 - whatever we call it, we cannot tolerate the lying and cheating and stealing and outright thuggery of the ones in power today. We'll work out the details as we go along, but we need to call the criminals out and hold them responsible.

#32 - I couldn't agree more if you paid me to. But the point is (oh yes, I ramble alot, but I periodically have a point, too ) that if we don't know exactly what we're standing for and what it's called, then it is possible, if not downright assured, that we will end up falling into side niches and losing sight of the intended end, or succumbing to peripheral movements with alterior motives. Of course, this is all most applicable on a personal level, which then translates into the movement overall being that much more concrete and viable. If we all, individually KNOW exactly what we stand for, why we do so, what it's called, then every molecule of every brick in every wall will be sturdy, unwaivering and, to defy this silly analogy I'm using, ADAPTABLE to withstand anything that would try to break, sway, or infiltrate the building they create. Then, if we make a careful study of our enemy, then we know how our own words can be manipulated by others to misinform or confuse. Overall, the clearer the picture we have of ourselves each other and what we stand for, the stronger the movement. Once again, it may seem like semantics, but every aspect of our fight is crucial, from the reasons behind our personal beliefs, to silly little, seemingly meaningless aspects, like the colors we identify with our country and its freedom.
I've been studying semiology for a while now, and I've learned that there are MANY levels below the surface of a movement of passion that all play a VITAL role in the structural integrity of the foundation.
Enough rambling for now...

Why is it that so many of the founding fathers' grievances with England remind me of Mr. Bush.It seems appropriate to me, that on the weekend of independence day a mass mobilization against the Bush regime begins to organize for 11/02/05.

Re: #31 - Yes, a republican form of government was what they argued for (and tried to build), and they often used "democracy" as a comparative to show the necessity of a republic.
Nevertheless, although the founders were largely based intellectually in classical history and philosophy (Greece and Rome) and used "democracy" and "republic" from those traditions, sometimes they themselves slipped and used "democracy" or "representative democracy" meaning the republic they were arguing for.
Since then, the term democracy has traditionally been used to designate "representative democracy". It has been thrown around a lot lately, but it has been used widely from the beginning of the nation. De Tocqueville's "Democracy in America" of the 1830's comes to mind. The many small villages that held town councils and so on were very proud of and spoke often of their democracy (and, by the way, often took Greek names for their settlements) which was often more important to them than their national or state government.
You can find quotations about "democracy" from a large number of famous Americans throughout our history - always meaning representative democracy or local direct democracy. (Whitman, of course, takes it to a mystical level.)
My Webster's dictionary defines democracy as "government in which the people hold the ruling power either directly or through elected representatives".
Personally, I've always appreciated the distinction between direct democracy and representative democracy. "Republic" has a fine history and it is (supposedly) our form of government, but I think the term democracy has a place in our thinking because 1.) there are times and places on the local level where it actually does and should exist - directly and 2.) representative democracy indicates clearly that power still rests with the people, governments "deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed". It might actually be a good thing for citizens to contemplate the distinction between the two.
I do tend to "wax philosophical", but Jeff brings up an important point as long as we are discussing our core beliefs.

Thank you, Arry, for "waxing philosophical." Too little of that is done these days. "Representative" must mean too "socialist" for the social Darwinians in control these days. Real people are in a minority in this "administration's" world-view.

Re: #31 Me - "The many small villages that held town councils and so on were very proud of and spoke often of their democracy." I really mean "town hall" kind of things. I'm working with a town council at the moment to try to get an anti-USA"PATRIOT" Act passed, so that term popped into my mind.
Of course, I am speaking of local direct democracy.

Here are a few quotes for true patriots on our Nation's birthday:
"We, as a nation, are not far from the kind of moral decay that has brought on the fall of other nations and people...I say it is time to put conscience back in government. And by good example, put it back in all walks of American life." –Barry Goldwater
"Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official." --Theodore Roosevelt
“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.” - Benjamin Franklin
"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt

The foolish empire will crumble under the will of we the people. Today watching the fireworks, most of us were quiet but shouted when they explode. As depressed as many people were regarding the terrible Iraq slaughter and all the lies of us being a truly free country....We sat and stood there with heads held high, awaiting something better.
A new feeling of rejuvenation came down, and reminded of what the declaration of independence stands for, all of us will march in lockstep and DRIVE the god forsaken bush-cheney regime from our country!!!!!!
Salute on the 4th.

I've just seen something absolutely shocking and disturbing. I'm very anxious to provide my analysis to John Conyers, in fact I really wish we had the full senate investigative committee to investigate this as it warrants prompt attention.
I've read recent reports all over about H. W. Bush knowing about the John F. Kennedy assassination and even ordering to having it covered up. I've always suspected it was a CIA initiated coverup.
I've just never known about who might have done it, although John Hinckley was a suspect. Apparently Hinckley met with Bush at least several times in Dallas, so to me he seems like a smokescreen guy. I read a report which speculated how Kennedy might have been killed by the limosuine driver. But this next step is just what floors me.
The following image I captured from a live documentary of the John F. Kennedy shooting following the black sedan down a road in 1963. You can clearly see when you look that it was in fact Secret Service Agent William Greer who aimed a gun directly at Kennedy's head and shot him!
Amazingly, if you look at his eyes he is actually looking up towards the camera and his arm is back around the chair. I've included two distinct shots which show the crime, but if you blow it up in Adobe Photoshop or Paint you can see it even clearer.
This has been a coverup since day one, and since Greer is now dead I would think there would be some witnesses who know something big about this case. Come to now think of it, one of the men alive today who knows too much about this case is Senator Arlen Spector. I was floored when I read a report on the Warren Commission that he actually white-washed the Kennedy assassination! Talk about a coverup, what does Arlen know exactly and why doesn't he want to discuss the driver? I am sure those secrets he has would blow this open.
Like who in the world ordered Greer to do it, it was supposed to be someone in the free mason society. But with this thing and Hinckley having made an attempt earlier, I smell the elder Bush all over it. Especially given the leaked government document that just recently showed Elder Bush had a telephone conversation in Dallas regarding this.
And knew it was absolute suicide to let Kennedy go out, yet he did not a thing to stop it. My guess is there is a whole tentacle connected to these guys that we could unlock if there was access to the files. Greer fired the shot though, because the place he points the gun is nowhere near where any assassins would be. It has to absolutely be shooting right at him. I'm astonished the media has never, ever reported it. I think the truth is what the americans deserve. DSM was just the tip of the iceberg wasn't it.

Yesterday I opened the Sacramento Bee Editorial page and in the left hand column was a large article of text.
Without looking at the title my gaze was first directed to an illustration of the flag and then to the following text which began next to it.
"He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death"...
..."He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all age sexes and conditions."
It wasn't until I got to "Indian Savages" that I realized I was reading something other than a critique of W's occupation of Iraq.

ATTN BRAD AND WINTER PATRIOT -
A request, and a little background on the reason for it...
I was in Virginia over the 4th, spending time with family (who, I'm sad to say, are such avid Bush fans STILL that I don't bring up politics anymore for fear of starting a war over whether or not I'm supporting the troops - not the way to spend a brief visit)
At any rate...
The hotel where we stayed had the news on during breakfast every morning (CNN for the most part), and so did several restaurants where we stopped for lunch. I confess I wasn't listening closely, but even when I was, I didn't hear ONE DAMNED THING regarding Rove, the Downing Street Memo, the illegal start of the war, election fraud...you name it, it WASN'T news! I suddenly realized that I was getting a glimpse of the world MOST Americans live in, with not much about the war except the latest casualty count, and not much about the country except who's pissed at Tom Cruise this week..it was surreal!
THEREFORE, I'd like to make a request....
Is there ANY WAY to keep a link to the Whispering Campaign somewhere near the top of the main index page? I think it's our only hope for getting the information out there for real. The "6 or 7" are well aware I'm sure, but the newbies here need to know about it too.
On the advertising front - t-shirts printed with just the URL - any copyright infringement problems? If not, anyone who wanted to do so could probably get it done locally or online. Maybe bumper stickers would be a good idea too - and don't forget to add it to your signature on email and "motto" lines in chatrooms and on bulletin boards!
I truly believe we can make a HUGE impact with this!!
So what do y'all think?
