How many people are you "waking up" this July 4'th? It's simple! Click here to see what you can do.

Hi Daily Paulers,

It is our duty to "wake up" as many people as possible to the message of freedom. Why not use the 4'th of July holiday as an excuse wake up all the sheep?

I sent the message below to my entire email list of 450 people. Please feel free to send it to all your friends and family.

Subject: Happy Independence Day!

I figured instead of just sending a short and boring Happy 4'th of July message, I'd send you a short summary that explains why we celebrate Independence Day.

Here it goes:

Imagine how you would feel if someone older than you (maybe an older sister or brother) kept telling you what to do all of the time and kept taking more and more of your allowance. That is how the former British colonists felt in the years leading up to 1776. The British government kept trying to make the colonists follow more rules and pay higher taxes. People started getting mad and began making plans to end the immoral control over their lives. They no longer wanted politicians to tell them what to do with their life and what to do with their money, so they decided to tell Great Britain that they were becoming an independent country. (To be independent means to take care of yourself and providing for your own needs.)

The colonists formed a Congress and met in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and they appointed a committee to write a formal document that would tell the overreaching British government that the Americans had decided to govern themselves. The committee asked Thomas Jefferson to write a draft of the document, so he worked for days, in absolute secret, until he had written a document that he thought was complete. On June 28, 1776, the committee met to read Jefferson's "fair" copy. They revised the document and declared their independence on July 2, 1776. They officially adopted it on July 4, 1776. That is why we call it "Independence Day." Congress ordered that all members must sign the Declaration of Independence and they all began signing the "official" copy on August 2, 1776. In January of the next year, Congress sent signed copies to all of the states.

The people who signed the Declaration risked being hanged for treason by the big and powerful British government. They had to be very brave to sign something that would be considered a crime! The Declaration of Independence is more than just a piece of paper. It is a symbol of our country's independence and commitment to the ideas of freedom, self reliance, very small limited government, sound money, low taxes, peace and prosperity. These principles are what defined America. These are the principles that made America the envy of the world! Our founders hoped that we would do everything in our ability to preserve those ideals. So every time we celebrate the 4'th of July, we should think about all of the effort and ideas that went into the document, and about the courage it took for these people to stand up for what they knew was right -- Freedom!

Happy 4'th of July!

Thoughts on July Fourth!

Do you realize that the representatives of the thirteen British Colonies had decided that a vote for a declaration of independence would have to be unanimous?

That enabled the representatives of the slave colonies to persuade the others to remove the offensive clauses of Thomas Jefferson's original draft of his Declaration of Independence which abolished slavery of the African slaves who were brought here and sold as property.

Watch it dramatized in the musical "1776" which played on Broadway and which plays in summer stock to this day. Benjamin Franklin advises that the problem of slavery would have to be taken care of later if they wanted their precious independence. So the passages were stricken and slavery continued and was sanctioned in the original Constitution as well.

I just read an article in The Economist which stated that a power to tax income was present in the Constitution whereas it was forbidden by Article 1 Section 9 unless apportioned among the states in accordance with the census. The Sixteenth Amendment reversed this and the Congress grabbed powers expressly forbidden to the Congress in the Constitution.

Consider a donation to www.DVDs4Delegates.com which promises to enlighten every Republican delegate in the country with four videos being produced now. It is our only hope that Ron Paul might still become our next President. Ron Paul has agreed to accept the nomination if granted at the convention in Minneapolis.

Today would be a perfect day to donate:

Happy overthrow Tyranny day!

I sent this email this morning

To all of our friends and family,

We wish you the very best of times when you celebrate this day of Independence. This day should carry a heavy heart for the sacrifices our Founding Fathers, and Revolutionary soldiers made on our behalf.

Many do not know this, but the signing of the Declaration of Independence was literally a signing of your own death warrant. Many of the signers and their families were tortured and murdered by the British.

The few that were not, later gave us our Constitution along with our Bill of Rights. today our Constitution and it's Bill of Rights are under attack by our very own government.

In almost a repetitive weekly occurrence, either the President, the Senate or the Congress introduces and passes legislation that is slowing dissolving the words of print, words from the blood of men who know what freedom truly means.

When asked, what have you given us Mr. Franklin, Ben replied "A Republic, for as long as you can keep it"

A Republic, hmmm? A government for the people by the people, ingenious! But how did we get to where we are today with such political and governmental corruption?

The answer is actually quite easy. In our basking of glory, folklore and fortunes, we simply no longer monitored who was guarding the Hen house. The Fox in this case, is the Banking Cartel.

Both American and European banking Elites, have undermined our government and subdued the American public with entertainment. Entertainment is the smoke and mirrors required to pacify a population while they are being pick-pocketed of their wealth and freedoms.

Am I wrong, what about Oprah, American Idol, MySpace, Sports, NASCAR, gambling, concerts, I-pods, X-box, Play Station, Guitar Hero, cell phones, computers, Internet? They have consumed our society and we are all guilty of falling for the scam.

Fact- Only 3% of Americans read books.

Is it a coincidence that our governments "Head Start" and "No child left behind" programs are complete failures? Not at all. They have achieved their goal of dumbing down America by allowing every child a Diploma regardless of their efforts.

Fact- Only 2% of MIT students are American born.

Did you know that the Federal Income Tax goes to pay the interest on the currency the Federal Reserve lends our own government. Not a single penny goes to goods and services as most assume it does. This is the scam of the ages!

Fact- An independent, corporate owned bank "The Federal Reserve System" that is not a department or entity of our government, prints and lends money to the USA at interest and fee's.

Fact- 1913- Introduction of the Federal Reserve and Income Tax....Hmmmm?

History has told us that the bankers have orchestrated the following wars. WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam. All with tactics such as the sinking of the Lusitania, embargos against Japan, UN policing of the Korean conflict, the Gulf of Tonken (false flag) incident that led us into Vietnam.

If Afghanistan, Iraq and soon to be Iran are not orchestrated by the bankers, this would be the exception rather than the norm. But I'll put my money on the bankers for these wars, oops, sorry, conflicts.

Korea, Vietnam, Afghanistan, Iraq, (Iran?) are all labeled as conflicts. Conflicts have no definition of an end, no declaration of war from Congress. These are bankers dreams, a country that will borrow money based on ego with know end in sight, brilliant! If your a banker.

Not only have these wars cost money and lives, the fear of terror has convinced Americans to give up their freedoms. The un-Patriot Act now allows warrant less searches and seizures and has removed Habius Corpus (the right to a trial). Our own government can now arrest you indefinitely without cause or a trial.

The Germans of WWII all stood around as the Nazi's were taking away races and religious groups, all the while saying thank God it's not me. Not until their race or religion was targeted did they question what was going on.

Ben Franklin said "They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety. "

So my friends and family that have actually read this much, it's time we stand united against the tyrannical's determined to undo America. This crap of Democrats and Republicans is BULL SHIT! Both parties are corrupt and polluted to the core.

At one time both Democrat and Republican platforms were identical. Be conservative, don't start wars, limited government and take care of those who really need it. Today we now have a welfare state and war machine.

How ashamed we should be for allowing something so great, given by such deep convictions and sacrifice to be trampled upon.

So today and tonight as everyone mingles with friends, neighbors and families, don't be afraid to start a conversation about our current status of corruption and deception in politics.

Throw out the rule of not discussing politics and religion, apparently it's not working.

"Without discussion, we cannot invent"

Look to a third party candidate to cast your vote. This crap about voting for the lessor of to evils is without a doubt the most unintelligent thing I have ever encountered.

Join the Campaign for Liberty that is promoting and sponsoring conservative candidates to all levels of public office. Get involved!

We all owe it to our children's children to make a change.

God Bless and have a wonderful Independence Day.

We are handing out Constitutions in our parade

and invitations to our next Central Committee meeting. We are wearing T-shirts I designed that I am so proud of you would think I hatched them. Feel free to make your own if you like! The back says Boise County Republican Central Committee (and in light of the news from our leader, you may want to seriously look at moving here if you are looking for a liberty minded part of the country.)
Here is my "stroke of genius" - the front says "
POLITICS: Do You Have The Constitution For It?"

(Yes, I am the cheapest of cheap dates. I can entertain myself with a dictionary - lol!)

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

I love that T-shirt!! You

I love that T-shirt!! You guys rock! I believe giving people that Constitution is one of the best things we can do! Yea! I always tell them to read the first 10 amendments because that is the Bill of Rights that our government is trying to take away from us, and everyone should know what they are. That at least gives them a reason to open it up and look for something. Seems like it is good to give them a little "assignment". Have fun!

PS On the back of the T-shirt maybe you should say "Government by and for the People".
