The profession of love is easy, often costing no more than the breath required to say “I love Liberty!” or “I love the Constitution!” Even the most radical leftist can say those things and even mean it, in their own tortured rationalized way. The truest test of one’s affections is never merely in the expression of that love. It is in what you are willing to sacrifice for the object of your affection. Harder still is what one is willing to give up in the defense of the thing you hold dear when it isn’t even yours?
The true test of one’s love for Liberty is “What will I risk in the name of your Liberty?” For far too long, the silence in response to that question has been deafening. Some of the blame, of course, can be cast upon a leftist culture, dominated by the media and academia, that has pulled the deadening fog of deculturation over our hearts, bleaching our American heritage to the point of abstraction. So far removed are the American people from our shared heritage of Natural Law that those who dare to be conservative are attacked simply for quoting a Founding Father!
As comfortable as blaming the left may be, however, personal responsibility must be shouldered, and much of the blame remains on us, you and me, for allowing the culture to come to what it has. While the leftists have marched in the streets, we’ve comfortably gone about our our daily lives, complacent while they eroded cultural norms and infected the halls of bureaucracy. While they were facing down the tear gas of a government that has grown increasingly authoritarian, we’ve kept quiet and obediently done nothing, as the government quietly turned against us.
Where were our watch dogs? We were those dogs. We were the dogs that didn’t bark and didn’t bite. Awaken dogs of war with patriot hearts, for Life, for Liberty, for Property. For the Natural Law that our Founders intended as our birthright has been stolen from us. It’s not too late to drive the thieves back into the shadows, to take back what they have stolen from us, for we have not yet begun to fight! For your Liberty! For mine! For every child who has yet to even understand what they have lost!
Be Brave! Be Free!
