Patriotism is NOT a Sin!

July 4, 2011
 Kris Karrel notes: The following is a post  I ran across on a forum. Send this to every Patriot you know, but please include the proper accreditation.


Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.

They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.

Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKeam was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly. He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding. His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Dillery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters. He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife’s bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives. His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For For more than a year he lived in forests
and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots. It’s not much to ask for the price they paid.


I hope you will show your support by sending this to as many people as you can, please. It’s time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games.

HOOYAH U.S.A!!!!!!

Smear Tactics by the US Government

April 14, 2009

With the complicity of the media, the US Government has just begun new smear tactics aimed at frightening the average citizen from protesting their spend, spend, spend policies.

The release of this report by Reuters from the so-called Department of Homeland Security attempts to warn America that right-wing extremists are gaining new recruits.

The timing of this is impeccable, a blatant giveaway to the Feds’ intent to shut down any opposition to their suicidal financial plans, considering that tomorrow Tea Party protests will be held in over 250 major cities. Earlier reporting by the media on these protests attempts to portray Republicans as the culprits behind the Tea Parties, an accusation that could not be further from the truth. The outraged American citizens planning to exercise their freedom tomorrow to protest their government come from all walks of life, and all political affiliations including Democrats, Republicans, Independents and Libertarians.

This time the smear and fear tactic isn’t going to work.  If anything, these tactics are going to solidify and grow the opposition among the patriots of this country.

I’m putting the US Congress, the President, and their whores in the media on notice: Continue acting like the British and you will get just what the British did in 1776–an ass-kicking, American-style.

You morons. You were all so afraid the People of this country might wake up, you went on in your greedy selfish ways and woke them up yourselves. So, what do you expect us all to do now–roll over, go back to sleep and let you rob us of our country? Should we let you rob our children of a future? Nuh-uh. We all reap what we sow. And you’re  about to get yours.

People who choose to exercise their constitutional rights are not extremists, or right-wingers, or any other label the government with the help of their rich media buddies tries to smear on us–we’re Americans, patriots, and we’re going to kick some Congressional, Presidential, media ass if you all don’t back up to the Constitution and stay there. You work for us, we the People, remember?

Abolishing the Federal Reserve–that unconstitutional private corporation lending trillions of our tax money without telling us to who–would be a genuine first step in the right direction. God forbid our senators and representatives should do something for America once instead of whacking each other off in committee after nauseating, time-wasting committee that results in nothing accomplished. Or should I say, mission accomplished.

And you traitors in the media–why not hurry up and swallow so you can spit out that Congressional and Presidential and Federal Reserve dick you’ve been sucking long enough to get on your feet and ask yourselves what Edward R. Murrow and other great journalists might’ve done to protect the People of this country. They sure as hell wouldn’t be down on their knees before anyone in Congress, the Oval Office or the Federal Reserve to beg with open mouths, “Please, sir, may I have some more?”

Yeah, I’m just a bit pissed with all the bullshit propaganda. I am embarrassed by the lack of class shown by our current Commander in Thief, and incensed that he thinks he needs to apologize to anyone, much less the world, for the actions of our country. And bowing to the King of Saudi Arabia? All I have to say to that is BITE ME.

I’m FED UP with being treated by Congress, the President and the media as if I were an imbecile and can’t see through the bogus smoke screens and nonbinding resolutions and the blatant robbery of the US Treasury or the attempts to manipulate me and my countrymen using made-up fear as a prod as if we were all cattle dying to be driven to slaughter.

I’m not afraid to exercise my rights as an American citizen in defiance of a government bent on a Hitleresque type of tyranny that would enslave every man, woman and child to the next four generations. I’ll be at a Tea Party protest tomorrow–you can count on it.

In fact, to my way of thinking it’s about time we the People prepare to emulate the fine example set by our Forefathers before, during and after the creation of our great country. The entire Congress and the current President should be run out of America just like British in 1776 and let’s make sure those traitors in the media get a front row seat so they might report the experience to the world. You want to call that extreme? Take it up with Washington, Jefferson, Adams and the rest of our Forefathers. After all, I learned the true price of freedom from them and I’m more than willing to water the same tree of Liberty with my red American blood, should peaceful means prove unsatisfactory.
