Do you wish to live as a free people or as slaves to government? This is a question that Samuel Adams asked the American Colonist when he told them, ““Is it not High Time for the People of this Country explicitly to declare, whether they will be Freemen or Slaves? It is an important Question which ought to be decided. It concerns us more than any Thing in this Life. The Salvation of our Souls is interested in the Event: For wherever Tyranny is established, Immorality of every Kind comes in like a Torrent. It is in the Interest of Tyrants to reduce the People to Ignorance and Vice. For they cannot live in any Country where Virtue and Knowledge prevail. The Religion and public Liberty of a People are intimately connected; their Interests are interwoven; they cannot subsist separately; and therefore, they rise and fall together. For this Reason, it is always observable, that those who are combined to destroy the People’s Liberties, practice every Art to poison their Morals. How greatly then does it concern us, at all Events, to put a Stop to the Progress of Tyranny. It is advanced already by far too many Strides. We are at this moment upon a precipice. The next step may be fatal to us. Let us then act like wise Men; calmly look around us and consider what is best to be done”.
Yes, it is 250 years later. Samuel Adams asked the colonists this question in 1772. The colonists chose to be free and not slaves. The same scenario faces Americans today as that faced by the colonists, that is freedom or tyranny. Those favoring tyranny in America today are advancing immorality of every kind. Our government is reducing the people to ignorance by indoctrinating and not educating. Vice is proclaimed to be a virtue and encouraged by the federal government, state governments, District Attorney’s, and local officials and school boards. Those who proclaim the teachings of the Bible are mocked, censured, and prosecuted. Liberties are being taken every day including the liberty of life. The words of Adams that tyranny has advanced by far too many strides and that we are at a precipice is as true today as it was in 1772.
Will we today face that challenge to rebuke tyranny with the same resolve, the same determination, the same willingness to sacrifice for freedom, or will be like the summer soldiers and sunshine patriots referred to by Thomas Paine?
Every Freedom Loving American must become a crucial part of what Samuel Adams called, “the wise and do what is best to be done to be free and not be a slave.”
Samuel Adams went on to say, “It does not take a majority to prevail, but a tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
You can learn to be a part of those who are already committed to “Setting Brushfires of Freedom”, in the minds of our fellow American citizens. When engaged in this necessary endeavor, remember it was not guns that rid the people of the Soviet Union, of Poland, of Romania, of Albania, of the Czech Republic, of Slovakia, and on and on, but it was a determined people who became committed, just like did the colonists, that they would live free and not as slaves.
An aspiring tyrant will instill fear in the minds of people. They will create a situation and then claim it is a crisis. They will, through indoctrination, propaganda, and intimidation gain control of the minds of the weak and timid by claiming that the only way to survive is to surrender their freedoms. This is happening this very day in our nation. False claims are being made every day by the American left in their effort to bring tyranny. Some of their false claims are:
Americans are a racist people
Climate cooling, or warming, just say change will destroy the planet unless we conform to the demands of collectivism
The China virus is a serious threat that cannot be treated early despite thousands of doctors successfully treating millions of people early with simple over the counter measures
Wearing masks protects people from contracting and transmitting the virus
Shots, referred to as vaccines, will prevent people from contracting and transmitting the virus, if not the first shot then the second, or third or fiftieth
Children and young adults must receive the shots despite the shots being proven to be more lethal than the virus
Crime can be solved by punishing the lawful and rewarding the unlawful
Arbitrary law is superior to rule of law
There are as many sexes as the mind of man can conceive and you are a hater if you understand that there are only males and females; and males do not have eggs and females cannot produce sperm
Abortion is a form of health care and is not murder of a human being
All must conform to only one way of thinking and that is collectivism
The United States Constitution is a “living document” and can mean anything the collectivists want it to mean
The Bible is irrelevant and outdated
That the means, no matter how diabolical, are always justified if in the end society is brought closer to tyranny
If you oppose tyranny or slavery, and along with Samuel Adams support being free, you must understand the evil of the above mantras being purported by the American Left to advance their end of transforming the United States to a Marxist tyrannical state. Then, simply ask those on the left if they support these beliefs and ask them to explain how and why. Remember, they will not change their minds simply because you say they must, but they must come to understand these are absurdities for themselves. It takes time to overcome indoctrination and propaganda, especially with the forces of intimidation used by the American Left.
Is it worth your time and effort? Do you want to live as a free-person or as a slave? The conviction to your answer to the second question will determine your answer to the first.
