All this talk of losing our civil liberties...my son would argue otherwise.Submitted by The Pen on Tue, 05/07/2013 - 15:41
I think it is great that we discuss and share ideas and insights here at the DP and that is the main reason I keep referring to this site over all others, however I feel like there is so much defeatist talk that it overwhelms the small acts and victories we are amassing in this movement toward recovering Liberty.
Last night I walked into my bedroom to find that my son had retrieved my round porcelain jar from the dresser that holds my collection of wheat pennies (around 100), which he has done several times in the past. He had been in our bedroom for some time and was meticulously counting and reading the dates on each penny and was and has been mesmerized by the design and age of them all. He wanted me to show him all my special pennies as he calls them, which is actually my collection of silver American Eagles, silver quarters, dimes, half dollar and steel wheat pennies. I have shown him all of these in the past, but his curiosity and natural admiration for these coins makes me a very proud papa. He can tell how important these coins are to me (real money as far as metal value and historically) and I can only presume that his interest has grown from his observation of my admiration and respect for them as well.
Let me just say to all the nay-sayers out there, those who will give up hope at the monstrosity and deformity that is our government today, there is hope is the smallest of things. My son is 4 years old and his interest in real money and that he knows the difference between real and counterfeit fiat currency is OUR future! Teach your children out of our multi-generational submission and conformity to principles of defeatism and counter-productivity. The fact that my son has such an interest in these liberty-minded principles at such a young age gives me the hope I seek and need to make many small changes to promote liberty and a freer future for him.
Peace and Love always!
