Fellow Patriots, there comes a moment when we reach a tipping point, where we can no longer accept the status quo. If we remain complacent, we risk becoming passive followers instead of active patriots. Throughout American history, there have been pivotal moments when action was necessary to combat complacency.
One such moment occurred during the early years of the United States. Influential figures like George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson could no longer tolerate British rule over the Colonies. In 1773, the famous Tea Party protest demonstrated their anger and resistance against the King's increasing taxes. This was followed by the conflict at Lexington and Concord on April 19, 1775, where the first shots were fired, “The Shot Heard Around The World” marking the beginning of a powerful resistance against the mighty military power of England.
Another critical moment took place on February 4, 1861, when Southern Democrats, led by Jefferson Davis, seceded from the Union in rebellion against authority. They demanded their interpretation of states' rights, which included the ownership of slaves and the ability to impose and retain tariffs and taxes. History shows the Union resisted and triumphed, preserving America.
On December 7, 1941, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto wrote in his diary: “I fear all we have done is to awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve.” These words proved true as the event galvanized the United States.
A significant turning point occurred when Dr. Martin Luther King delivered his iconic "I Have a Dream" speech during the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom on August 28, 1963. This powerful speech forever changed America and initiated the healing process for deep-rooted racism and resentment.
Today, America requires another pivotal moment. A moment when its citizens rise up and declare “We Are One Nation Under God”. We must denounce sexual perversion and the exploitation of children, and return to the principles which made America great and will ensure its continued greatness.
The United States of America must reject wicked practices and reaffirm its Judeo-Christian values without fear of criticism. Anything less will lead to complacency and misplaced tolerance. We cannot allow a minority's perversions to become the norm for the majority.
Through widespread boycotts, demands from Congress, media campaigns, and personal resistance, those who embrace the restoration of Judeo-Christian values must stand up or risk sinking into complacency. This is why we must resist the growing anti-American sentiment within our beloved nation. We must be a generation which safeguards freedom and passes it on, unspoiled, to the next generation, ready to be utilized, cherished, and defended.
January 5, 1967, President Ronald Reagan stated this truth in his Inaugural Address: “Freedom is a fragile thing and it's never more than one generation away from extinction. It is not ours by way of inheritance; it must be fought for and defended constantly by each generation, for it comes only once to a people. And those in world history who have known freedom and then lost it have never known it again.”
That is the reason why we must oppose and resist the increasing malevolence towards America within our beloved nation. We should strive to become a generation which safeguards freedom and passes it on, entirely unharmed, to the succeeding generation, ready to be utilized, appreciated, and defended.
Be the resistance!

I would be honored if you would share this with your friends and relatives
Great Post Steve... Well written and emotionally moving. An inspirational piece that I will be honored to share with others... God Bless you and yours Steve.
Why Are The People Without Power To Govern?
The borrower is the servant of the lender and the servant is subject to his master… reliance on others for the essentials of life and the lack of moral courage to defend the common cause of liberty is the road to slavery. It is the tyrant who promises liberty in exchange for security only to deliver neither. It is the fool who expects the government to feed their every need without requiring a return in blood.
So it is, that the common man is snared by the state and left bereft of the resources… needed to faithfully resist the tyrants… whose wealth and power consume the fruit of their labor making them dependent upon others for their existence. It is a cunning and crafty system, of soft tyranny, that eats away at the foundations of liberty. A system that denies the very will to resist, thru a host of laws and customs, that hinder the ability of the middle class to throw off the chains of bondage.
Beginning with a lack of leaders, with the wealth and will to resist… we have no George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, or Ben Franklin, leadership willing to lead the commoner and finance the army needed to reclaim our liberty. Where will the common man find leaders, with our forefather’s stature, to organize, equip, train, fund, and plan our emancipation from this oligarchy of tyrants? Where?
It is one thing to define the problem and quite another to solve it… the tyrant has laid his trap and the unsuspecting commoner has fallen into it. The People put their Trust in men, but failed in their duty to resist evil when it first appeared; being persuaded to eat of the wealth of their neighbors, they soon found their own fields raided and pillaged. The end result is that every man, of common stock, has been deceived and drawn into a battle they cannot win alone.
Isolated, they tremble in fear, knowing what is coming… they look for deliverance from their leaders, only to find they are the very ones who have forged the chains of their bondage. What then can they do?
They must rise up out of their misery and take hold of the reigns of government … they must unite as one, to restore our Constitutional Republic. Will it be easy? Nay, it will be very difficult. Will they succeed? Only, if they can find the leadership and muster the resolve, to do what is necessary, to pull down those who have betrayed their trust; too, replace them with true Citizen Politicians, who will serve their term of office and then return to their homes and businesses… where they must live under the system they have administered. Then justice, tranquility, peace, and prosperity, will return to every man’s house, and our Nation will once again be a city, set upon a hill, a beacon of light in a world of darkness.
Both you and Steve sound right to me.
With you 110% brothers.
Good essay Steve, and accurate in both its history and tone of Truth. Money is only a convenient medium of exchange but our most precious possessions and assets are our God-given time and talents, which many people only consider as something to sell to obtain money. Keep up the good work, and keep spreading the Gospel message of Truth and freedom, even if it takes words.
Thank you Steve, we have lacked Leadership and Organization to fight against the commie onslaught on every front, please consider Kari Lake's efforts to organize efforts to outwork the left to secure the 2024 election as a vehicle to get Us up and at 'em and demand our elected elite listen to our concerns.
