The Essence Of A Patriot
There are many ways to define the word Patriot, or to describe what a patriot is. However, few people truly understand what it means to grasp the essence of a patriot. A person can call themselves a patriot because they love their country or they defend what their country stands for. The reality of becoming a patriot involves much more than claiming the title, due to ones’ general beliefs and so called commitment to his country.
The true patriot understands not only the history of his country and what sacrifices have been made to establish his way of life, but they also understand the sacrifices that men must make in order to preserve that way of life and defend it at all cost. Most citizens today know that things are wrong in this country. They realize that tyranny has laid it’s grasp upon the people and the laws of the land and it has corrupted the entire landscape across our nation. They have learned these things slowly over the years as the evidence has become more and more prevalent. As they learn of the treacherous deeds of our government, and the corporate degenerates they have chosen to serve, they become angry and they seek to support the defense of our country in one way or another.
The kind of support mechanisms they seek varies according to the variety of different protests that exist in our many different platforms that have risen against this tyrannical force. There are platforms against illegal immigration, wrongful and extensive taxation, invasion of personal privacy, unconstitutional legislation, political corruption, you name it the list goes on for days. People will usually choose one of these platforms to side with and begin their journey into being a protestor and advocate for peaceful resolution, at least that is where most of them start. They pursue the falsehood that the protests they follow along with will someday have an impact that will solve or correct these problems.
They usually wind up supporting more than one platform as they run from group to group hoping that one of them has the answer or the changing effect that they seek. They become disappointed when they find that after years of these peaceful protests, nothing has changed and there is no light at the end of the tunnel. Some become so disenchanted, that they move on and give up their tirade against the system. Some move on to different platforms that stand against a different subject or issue. They move around to all these different groups seeking to fit in somewhere where they feel they have the best chance for succeeding in supporting the battles that will eventually cause the changes they desire.
In all of this they consider themselves patriots for their country, they feel they are doing what they can and must for the right cause and to satisfy their need to participate. What many of them do not understand is there are factors involved here that has prevented them from learning what true patriotism is and what it takes to truly stand for something to the degree that sacrifices have to be made that would indeed effect the changes they desire. Most of them do not know about sacrifices, they have never truly realized the great deal of dedication that it takes and the true commitment that our forefathers experienced for the things they believed in and died for. They just haven’t been placed in a position where everything is at stake for them personally and where the result could be devastating for them and their family. Once Tyranny is realized in the personal life of any citizen and they can experience first hand the tremendous violation of their persons and property, then they can truly grasp what is means to be backed into a corner where fighting back is the only option.
All the sign waving and marching and shouting and boycotting has done absolutely NOTHING to cause an effective change in the things that are taking place in this country. I repeat, Absolutely NOTHING! People are programmed to think that if they can get new politicians into office that change can occur, they think if they can cause some sort of minor disruption in procedures, that this will draw enough attention to get someone of influence to listen and possibly support the changes needed. This simply isn’t true. These types of protests and objection to all that is happening is having no effect on the system as a whole. The bottom line is protesting could be successful, but only if it were done correctly. True protests have no time limit, there is no negotiations, there is no stepping back, and there damn sure isn’t any compromise. When you are truly trying to stand up for something you cannot be submissive, you have to be ready to make some ultimate sacrifices and dedicate the time and energy it will take to see things through to the end. A true protest has only one resolution and that is ‘change’, until the change occurs, the protest doesn’t end.
When is comes to the Essence of a patriot, one has to understand what it means to be willing to make certain sacrifices. You have to be able to muster up all of your self being and direct your mind into a mindset of one who is not willing to back down on what you truly believe in, no matter what. To do this means you must be willing to give your own life for this cause you believe in. What is the ’cause’? The ultimate cause, here in this case, is the way of life for every American man woman and child. We have all lost so much of our own personal freedoms for so many years and at so many different levels, that we have failed to nip this in the bud long ago before it ever got this far. We have allowed ourselves to get distracted by our creature comforts in life, to the degree that we just didn’t see all the chess pieces being put into place for the final assault. We now find ourselves looking at a government that has nearly the ultimate control over the people, they have us so fearful of reprisal that we cower down at the mere raise of a fist. We submit to their tyrannical systems of slowly gaining control of our lives piece by piece, to the point that one day we will wake up and we will not have a single freedom left.
The evidence is all around us. We have to get permits from cities in order to stage a protest? We have to get a permit to carry a firearm or in some cases you can’t carry one at all in a public place? We have to get our governments permission to work on our own property, to improve or refurbish it? We have to pay tolls to travel on certain roads and in some cases be subjected to unlawful road blocks? Think for a moment about all the small things they have put into place to interfere into our lives and in most cases tax us at the same time. There has never been, in the history of our country, more invasive laws and unconstitutional taxes upon the people, than there is today. And how did it get this way? Because we let it, we looked the other way while enjoying our massive prosperities and creature comforts so much that in order to keep them, we have allowed our government to reach out and enslave us into a systematic means of dependence upon them. We fear that if we don’t do the things they tell us to that we will lose these comforts we have grown accustomed to. They have slowly, over decades, enslaved you all into their grasp and now most people do not have the fortitude to take a stand and be willing to make the right sacrifices in order to fight back.

There is a problem though, one that plays a factor in the reason most people won’t fight back. That factor is mutual support of the people as a whole. We have become a society separated from our fellow countrymen in many diverse ways. This separation has caused us all to realize that if we fight, we must fight alone, no one will join us, no one will come to help us and no one else is willing to make their sacrifice for the defense of another. This is the main reason our society has fallen into a submissive posture and allowed the system to take control. They simply realize that other people, if not personally effected, will not come to the aid of his brethren in such desperate times of need.
If we as a group of concerned citizens had for instance shown up to defend the innocent men, women and children, during the WACO, Texas incident involving David Koresh, then many of those people would be alive today. All it would have taken is for enough citizens to gather at that place and demanded that the government stand down and not launch their evil assault upon those citizens.
Whether people believed David Koresh was right or wrong, doesn’t matter, all of those people deserved the right to stand in a fair trial. What most Americans do not realize is, that this whole obscene murder of men women and children took place over a $100 gun tax from a firearm transaction. That has to be the most devastating and ludicrous piece of injustice of all!!! If the citizens of this country would come to the aid for one another against this government out of control, then these sorts of incidents simply would not occur. Everyone deserves a fair trial when accused that is but just ONE principle that this nation was built on in our constitution and it must be preserved. All the people involved in directing law enforcement officials into perpetrating that incident are nothing more than murderers and all for $100.00 Furthermore, the law enforcement individuals who carried out this murder are also guilty, because they ‘could’ have made an ultimate sacrifice and chosen not to follow these wrongful orders of death. These gentlemen knew that what they were doing was wrong, they knew that they were killing innocent men, women and children trapped in that building. And the saddest part is……..We knew it was wrong as well.
So what sacrifices are involved in being a patriot? That might depend upon a lot of different situations according to what you are defending or protesting a change for. What has to be considered in these cases are, there has to be no limitations to what we will do to protest not only for ourselves but our fellow Americans. We must use our true heartfelt love for this country and the life of freedom we have to muster up enough fortitude to stand against a tyrannical government, but we have to learn to do it as a whole and not just individually. This is a profound choice that each of us has to consider. We must realize that by making this choice, we are laying it ALL out on the line. We are placing ourselves in harms way, not just for us, but for every man, woman and child that calls themselves Americans. You would be saying to the whole world that you believe in this nation and the true freedom of mankind so much, that you will sacrifice yourself in order to maintain it and to defend it. You will be saying to all your brethren, I will stand with you in this battle, not behind you.
You will be stating by your actions that enough is enough and these things will stop and stop now!!!
However you must not stand alone, you must encourage others to see that sacrifices have to be made in the ultimate manner in order to propagate the true changes we need and desire. We must have the true sacrificial support system of all of our brethren in standing together once and for all, to let the tyrannical government know that they can no longer operate as they are doing so now. They must submit to the will of the people, just as it was meant to be from the beginning and so it shall be again, but only if this True Essence of the American Patriot can be re-constituted.
Are you willing to make the sacrifices necessary to assure our freedoms? Would you stand next to a fellow American to assure his freedom and rights? Would you come to the defense of a man and his family under attack by unjust laws and actions of this government out of control and save their lives? Will you support your brethren and yourself in preparing for this final assault? Can you put all that you have at stake for something you truly believe in? Can you tell yourself that you have finally had enough of this shit and that you are ready to do something about it?
Can you accept all of this as the responsibility of any American Patriot? Can you stand along side the true Spirit of America and those that have fought and died for its’ purpose and creation? Can you bring yourself to join others who have grasped this Essence of Patriotism and become part of the whole so we can fight back when the time comes? Can and will you answer the call?
And now I ask you………Are you really a Patriot?
Respectfully a Patriot
