Rand Paul: One person can make a difference

Yesterday, one U.S. Senator helped change the national conversation regarding Constitutional rights. But without the support of millions of individual citizens who share Rand's concerns, his filibuster would've received little attention. Domestic enemies of the Constitution and Bill of Rights want individuals to feel powerless so they'll give up without a fight. So it's important to remember, if not for the individuals who believe their unalienable rights are worth fighting and dying for, the pieces of paper that secure those rights would've been destroyed long ago. If you believe in limited Constitutional government of, by, and for the people, give yourself a pat on the back because you make the Constitution and Bill of Rights possible.

The Bible, American history, and world history, provide many examples of individuals who were lone voices crying in the wilderness. And against all odds, they took a stand on principle that ultimately changed the world for the better. Tyrants can only win if individuals don't use their God given power to be a force for good in the world. Exercising that power begins with an inner conviction to stand for what is right, and never give up. The next step is doing what Thomas Paine did with "Common Sense", i.e., sharing the truth with others as a means to light fires in the minds of men and women.

Taking a stand can seem hopeless when so many are fast asleep, but remember, we're planting seeds in people's minds that may bear fruit in the future. Even if our efforts don't bear fruit in our lifetime, future generations may look back on our work and be inspired to carry on the fight to secure unalienable rights. Ron Paul is a good example, his individual efforts have awakened more citizens to the merits of limited Constitutional government than any politician in my lifetime.

The founders ended the Declaration of Independence with these words: "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." The founders understood the price of freedom, which is total commitment with no guarantee of success. We teach athletes to compete even if the game appears lost, and unalienable rights are far more important than a game so keep fighting for your rights.

My belief in the power of the individual to effect change, has led me to create a website for sharing info and possible solutions. My goal is to help restore the rule of law and Constitutional checks and balances. You may find the following posts interesting. The first two posts present compelling evidence of bipartisan treason.

A Sleeping Giant Awakes...

In Liberty!

"I, __________, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic."

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_enlistment

There is no duration defined in the Oath

There's an intangible factor called...

zeitgeist, which means there's nothing more powerful than an idea whose time has come. The sleeping giant is the vast majority of the worlds people who won't benefit from the fascist elite's plan for global tyranny. Power to the people!

These last two days have been UNREAL

In a good way! :-)

One man with courage is a majority

!

The tiny fascist elite who control...

a corrupt global system are far more vulnerable than most people realize. The fascist elite's divide and conquer strategy has worked so far, but I believe people will continue to wake up and make war no more.

Rand "Stonewall" Paul

Rand "Stonewall" Paul

During the battle of Bull Run...

Confederate General Barnard Bee, trying to rally his troops saw Stonewall Jackson's line and said, "There's Jackson standing like a stone wall. Let us determine to die here and we will conquer."

I'm advocating for an non-violent revolution that will restore limited Constitutional government to America. So like military leaders, when civilians resolve to take a stand irregardless of the consequences, victory becomes a very real possibility.

Excellent post.

Well articulated. I also agree there is PLENTY of evidence of treason right on the front pages of most newspapers.

All you would need to do is call people to the stand to testify if that is true or not. GUILTY AS CHARGED... but if you're waiting for some BARFLY Attorney to come to the rescue... you're going to be waiting for a while:

True, relying on weak prosecutors...

will not get the job done. Just like it's the will of the people that makes the Constitution and Bill of Rights possible, it's the will of the people that can make prosecution of traitors possible. Take the info in my posts and others, and email it to friends, business associates, local attorneys, county prosecutors, State Attorneys General, and U.S. Attorneys. If millions of concerned citizens did this, it would make a difference. And if American producers, i.e., small and medium sized businesses and the people who work for them got organized, we could force some prosecutions.
