It is my desire for America, to understand and embrace the freedom that began with the Declaration of Independence for our future generations; not the subjugation that resulted from the betrayal of that document subsequent to its adoption by the Second Continental Congress. Much of what we've learned in our lives has been a foundation of lies, misconceptions, half-truths, and blatant propaganda. After so many generations, the lies have been accepted as the truth.
Finding the words people will understand is the greatest dilemma I face. The deceit the People are under has dug in through multiple generations and not easily overcome today; they've been reinforced by parents, grandparents, churches, synagogues, public and private schools, colleges and universities, media, literature, government, and business... and enforced by law enforcement and the military.
There is no segment of society today, that doesn't pay homage to the oligarch's, which include the British Monarchy. Many Americans have an intense fascination of the British royal family promoted by the corporate media, some could even say greater than the subjects of Britain today. Since Franklin D. Roosevelt, even the United States Marine Band, which performs for dignitaries and state functions, wears the uniform of our "former" monarch… the uniform we fought against for independence.
Where I seem to differ with so many other researchers, is I try to focus on the truth under sound principles; proposing solutions, rather than focusing on the lies and deception that brought us where we are today. I have come to believe that when you focus on the lies, deception, and fraud, instead of exposing it as the mist it is, you make it a torrent in the minds of the People, giving it power to overflow and consume them. Only by focusing on the truth and relegating the lie to its proper place… the abyss… will you be able to break through the fog and present hope to the People desiring freedom; not just to the American People, but the world.
All my life I've been told that politics is the "art of compromise"… something I've come to discover is the core of all the problems we face today. When you compromise principle in order to garner the support of unprincipled men, you inevitably slide into an abyss of tyranny and despotism. Everyone today is told to choose the lessor of two evils, instead of demanding principled leadership by men of honor.
I pray that someday soon, Americans will realize the danger they're in by those they trust with the reins of power today. By giving their consent and compliance to laws that plunder and enslave them; believing the lies delivered to them instead of seeking out the truth, Americans are unwittingly selling their posterity's freedom for a pot of porridge. Life would be so much better under Natural Law than the man made treadmill it is today.
"Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man. We must not conclude merely upon a man's haranguing upon liberty, and using the charming sound, that he is fit to be trusted with the liberties of his country. It is not unfrequent to hear men declaim loudly upon liberty, who, if we may judge by the whole tenor of their actions, mean nothing else by it but their own liberty, — to oppress without control or the restraint of laws all who are poorer or weaker than themselves. It is not, I say, unfrequent to see such instances, though at the same time I esteem it a justice due to my country to say that it is not without shining examples of the contrary kind; — examples of men of a distinguished attachment to this same liberty I have been describing; whom no hopes could draw, no terrors could drive, from steadily pursuing, in their sphere, the true interests of their country; whose fidelity has been tried in the nicest and tenderest manner, and has been ever firm and unshaken.
The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people." - Samuel Adams, essay published in The Advertiser (1748)

Due to the nature of my writing, I must depend upon those that support my efforts. I cannot in good conscience work within the corrupt system and support it while writing the truth and seeking its destruction. The system forces me to compromise the message in order to work within it and I can no longer tolerate doing so in order to perform this mission.
Please consider being one of those supporters if you value what I'm doing; without it, I cannot keep paying the expenses necessary to continue. If the workman is worthy of his meat, are my efforts worthy of the support necessary to continue? To support my efforts, send any amount to http://paypal.me/ThomasMick.
