Unknown or unacknowledged by many, our forefathers erected a “Matrix of Liberty” for the purpose of documentation. It documents the road map they followed to win and establish LIBERTY in AMERICA. The monument has been there for decades, built with government funds, in the off chance We, the People would lose our way and allow the government to assume tyrannical power. Oops! Good thing, right? Yet, it is ignored.
Below, the matrix is explained. Each of the granite figures carries meanings like pieces of a puzzle. I have outlined each figure below, but the video completes the explanation. Please watch and be amazed!!!
Meet FAITH! She is paramount! She is pointing upward toward the God of the Bible. FAITH in God is what brought the first Pilgrims, or Separatists, to Plymouth. Not the sour, pious stiffness we were told in school, but a LIVE FAITH that carried them through persecution and hardship as they broke free from tyranny.
Morality is internal liberty, and starts in the HEART of the individual. As we pursue our God in faith, He teaches us true fairness via internal morality of heart.
EVANGELISTS preach the message that transforms the heart. TRUE Freedom and Morality are products of FAITH in GOD and His Promises, the BIBLE, studied and taught to every person.
A MORAL SYSTEM translated from God’s Law into civil law, balanced by MERCY and JUSTICE, with Equality under the LAW for each individual.
A Woman training her young children (YOUTH) according to heart-held principles and an honorable character, preparing the next generation to carry forward the “Matrix of Liberty!”
LIBERTY is the result of following the “Matrix of Liberty!” LIBERTY is seated in Victory. He is holding the broken chains of the manacle of tyranny attached to his leg. He has slain the Lion Tyrant, yet bears the marks as a remembrance on his shoulder. Liberty has his foot on the chest of Tyranny, holding it down by following God’s principles only – no bloodshed! Strength based on Morality, overcoming evil with Goodness!
So much of what we were taught in school, and even more of what our children are being taught in school today is simply untrue based on historical documents still in existence. Notably, the first Bibles printed in the United States were funded by CONGRESS in 1782 for the use of our SCHOOLS – First public school law!!! Bibles were used in schools starting in 1647 through 1963 (which I remember!)

So … where do we go from here, America? Toward FAITH or TYRANNY?

First President to side with a foreign nation over one of the American 50 states (Mexico vs. Arizona).
How is Obama’s “Hope and Change” working out for you?”
I believe Obama should be arrested and impeached for only a few of his “Great Accomplishments.” For being best President in many of his Democratic followers eyes… I feel this Great Nation in being misled in an immorally direction away from what it was originally founded on. I pray for the safety and promising future for our children. I pray our children do not become as greedy, ungrateful, anti-christian and un-patriotic as I see our current leaders leading their lives.
I commend you for reading all of this. And, I hope it has empowered you with knowledge and opened your eyes more.
I wanted to inspire all you lovely readers out there … We are licking our wounds after yet another disappointing show by our, um, Representatives in DC. I participate in the Special Operations Speaks group on Facebook.
They posted the following, including a link to the Bill referenced, and one Patriot replied with a stunning and fresh outlook which I echo! Mr. Tusa shares an inspirational thought … ENJOY!
“H.R.2775, new law flips the power to raise the debt ceiling. It gives the President the power to raise the debt ceiling by fiat. The limp noodle Congress, then by passing a joint resolution, can send a bill to the President to sign to reverse the President’s fiat…Which he will VETO.
The President has the power of the purse.”
This President continues to shred the US Constitution at every convenience. Will he succeed in his intention to destroy this nation? it’s up to US – We, the People!
Michael Tusa’s reply: Thank You Mr. President! Yes, I said THANK YOU. Never before in the history of the United States of America has this nation been so sharply divided, a Congress so torn apart, people so passionate about the issues, whether you stand on the right or the left, conservative or liberal, Republican or Democrat. We all are concerned about the direction our nation is taking. This will increase the tone of debates and politicking from the local neighborhood group leaders all the way to Washington D.C. and all races in-between. People will not be so “ho-hum” when listening to debates, examining the issues, making uninformed decisions when going to the polls. As of this October and the fiasco of the “Divided House”, “Divided Senate”, and “Divisive President” WE have listened, WE have learned, WE have paid great sacrifices in money, paychecks, jobs, taxes, blood, sweat and tears, cost of living, and peace of mind knowing we live in the greatest nation on earth. BUT, we are AMERICANS. We WILL sacrifice, we WILL bear the cost, we WILL emerge from this fog ever so stronger, ever so more determined to keep our Constitution and Bill of Rights on solid ground, more determined to add height to the Statue of Liberty that she will stand above all nations, build a flagpole flying Old Glory that can be seen from horizon to horizon. And be the example of truth, justice, liberty and freedom that the world has known and expects of us. A nation where God can look down, smile and say “I BUILT THAT!” Yes sir, we thank you Mr. President for a painful wake-up call. A call that will result in truth, justice, and liberty that will stand tall in the future elections and cowardice and dismay will stand shaking and quivering in its boots. Lovers of the United States of America! We ARE coming back. We are coming back like the rain in a hurricane, we are coming back like every grain of sand we shed blood over on Iwo Jima, Normandy, Saint-Mihiel, San Juan Hill, Fort Sumter, Yorktown, Lexington and countless other battles. For all of you unbelievers, all of you non patriots. Hell IS coming. Its coming to the issues, the debates, the street corners, door to door, house to house, business to business. The American Voters are coming with it.
Thank you again Mr. President. I leave you with the words of another famous person who also angered the American public. Japanese Imperial Navy Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto “I fear all we have done today is to awaken a great, sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve”…….
Note: I have been asked to give my permission to share this post. The word and permission is given my fellow PATRIOTS. Godspeed to the retaking of America!!!
So are we AWAKE yet? Ready to make some tough decisions?
What has changed in America since the young men on D-Day challenged the entrenched Germans on Normandy’s shores?
What inspires a generation to such greatness, such selflessness, such courage or causes it to self-destruct?
What unique assurance did these young soldiers hold that their struggle would not be in vain?
A different American culture raised these young men (and women). Some, no doubt, would call them “Old-fashioned,” but I call them enlightened. They understood the cost of Freedom. They knew their sense of destiny meant sacrifice, and they were responsible enough to go anyway … in spite of the cost. The cries of those imprisoned in German camps called out to them, and they … honor bound, had to go.
Where is this courage today? Where is this commitment to OTHERS? We went, not with the goal of gaining new lands or conquering a people, but simply to set the oppressed free. A noble and achievable goal.
Oh that the courage of these heroes, and the moral indignation they shared in the face of tyranny and immorality would rise up again in the American people. I call it forth, that very boldness. There will be a time to act. Meanwhile pray!
OBAMA’S AMERICA: A COUNTRY WITHOUT HISTORY
Thousands upon thousands, from the open-mouthed boats they splashed,
From salty sea water tinged red with solders’ blood,
Wave after wave, forward they crashed
Toward the daunting cliffs in an uphill flood.
Liberty’s bell rang loudly in their ears,
Driving them toward the cries of the persecuted and oppressed,
Calling each heroes name, calming their fears,
Uniting them and empowering them on to the noble quest.
Heroes one and all, by the thousands, they bled and fell,
While more and more behind them, Allied troops drove on,
They fought and sought to claim nothing for themselves,
Just the moral rightness of tyranny’s oppression gone.
Thousands upon thousands, with their hands out they stand,
Today’s oppressed masses, expecting something for FREE,
They have not been taught, and just don’t understand,
The grain of wheat must fall and die so life and liberty can be.
More and more, Americans are seeing and feeling the restrictive bonds of tyranny. Now, you may think I am over-reacting, but let me ask you your definition of tyranny? The first definition listed here, is “arbitrary or unrestrained exercise of power; despotic abuse of authority.”
Repeatedly, we have witnessed President Obama’s disrespect for the Constitution, the ideals that formed the bedrock for our nation, and his disdain for the members of the military who have put their very lives on the line to purchase and defend the Liberty declared in 1776. While past leaders have stretched Executive authority, no one has flaunted their defiance in the face of the people the way this administration has … as evidenced just this week by our Sec of State’s statement, “What’s the difference …
“When Xerxes I of Persia demanded that the Spartans lay down their arms and surrender at the Battle of Thermopylae, King Leonidas I responded with defiance, “Molon labe”, “come and take!”. While Leonidas’ 300 could not stand forever against this invading force, love of country and a fervent desire to protect Sparta and its citizens from an enslaving tyrant gave the Spartan warriors the impetus they needed to fight to the death of every last man.
“Throughout history we see example after example of people standing against tyrants. America is no exception. We fought the Revolutionary war to gain our freedom from a king who used the newfound wealth from the colonies to help fund his kingdom, all the while treating us like the redheaded step children. We threw off those shackles in defiance of tyranny. Thus began the great American Experiment. There was born the greatest nation in the world.
“Our Founding Fathers were well acquainted with history and her ugly past. They crafted the Constitution and the Bill of Rights with that history, including their own recent emancipation, in mind. Understanding that men are born in liberty, endowed by their Creator, the Constitution was written to protect those God given rights. These venerated documents are timeless.
“The second amendment is our greatest protection to help us guard against the infringement of the others. While progressives scream that we need fewer guns to be safe, nothing could be further from the truth. And once again, history bears us out. In every instance of tyrannical takeover, the first act of the invader has been to disarm its people. But you know that history. It has been spoken of innumerable times. We must admit that not every case of disarmament has been by a tyrant. There are also historic cases of nations taking guns from its citizens because they believed it would make them safer. And in every case, once again, they have been proven wrong.
“In 1997 Australia instituted a national gun ban and citizens turned in more than 640,000 guns for destruction. What was the result? Accidental gun deaths are up 300% from the pre ban years, robbery and armed robbery have increased 20%, the assault rate has increased 200%, and homicides with firearms are up 171% in the state of Victoria alone. What does that tell you folks? That the criminals STILL have guns, that law abiding citizens are now unable to protect themselves on a level playing field, that the black market for illegal guns is thriving, and that gun bans only hurt a nations citizenry and help criminals.
“U.S. Senator Ben Cardin, a Democrat from Maryland, recently added his support to President Obama’s call for gun control measures. Liberals across the nation have convinced their mindless sheeple that “assault weapons” need to be taken out of the hands of everyday Americans and that no one has need of a magazine that holds more than ten rounds.
“Time and again I have asked the question, “what is an assault weapon?” and have been answered with dumbfounded silence. I own a Mossberg 500. It has a pistol grip and a chainsaw handle. I have opted to remove the chainsaw handle and add an Archangel tactical stock to it. When it is finished it will look pretty awesome. I like to accessorize my guns, much like I enjoy wearing earrings and having a wide selection of purses. It doesn’t change the nature of the gun. It is a semi automatic 12 gauge shotgun. That is all it will ever be. But it will look like what liberals think of as an assault weapon. And so they would ban it if we would let them. Sadly, we must fight the good fight largely because of their lack of education and willingness to understand. Like a child throwing a tantrum, they want it their way. What I wouldn’t give to have just one gun Nazi give a logical answer to my logical questions on the subject. Alas it is not to be. There are no logical answers. Plenty of anger and name calling, no answers. Guns are a tool and nothing more. Law abiding citizens don’t commit these atrocities. We need to be looking at the people, not the tools. We certainly do not need to leave citizens defenseless to face criminals and lunatics. This is the antithesis of logic.

“Ultimately the right to bear arms is a safeguard against tyrants. But it also serves to enable citizens to participate every day in their own safety and well being. There are many good reasons to cling to our guns and not one good reason to give them up. Only a government with tyrannical motives would seek to disarm its people. We must scream our defiance in the face of the single greatest threat to our Republic. We must hold onto our guns and make it clear to the liberals that we will not let them go willingly, that a 21st century civil war will ensue upon any action taken by them to pry those guns from our hands.
“We must shout from the rooftops, MOLON LABE! and we must mean it!”
Sen Paul may not question the motives of the administration, but I do! At some point, We, as Americans, will have to make a stand. How much liberty are we willing to surrender in the HOPE for some sense of security while immorality is permitted unchecked?
Regardless your thoughts on guns, there is no room for misunderstanding the Second Amendment of the Constitution. It says the right to keep and bear arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED! Period! Our President has other plans, and at some point, it will be up to the people of America to make a decision. Will we bow like the people of Chicago (or any of the other cities, towns, or nations that have turned in their weapons,) trust our President, and experience a surge in gun violence as gangs and criminals run unchecked? or will we STAND on our Constitutional rights!
Before we can remember who we are as Americans, we must LEARN more about how our FOUNDERS saw things! Their world, after all, was a bit different than ours is today. An astounding assembly of remarkable men, though far from perfect, these men were able to put aside their personal religious and political views to find a harmonious balance that penned The Founders’ Unchanging Principles of Liberty. An experiment in freedom that allowed the individual power over his own life.
Over the last few decades, but especially over the last 3 years, we, the American people, have allowed our government to turn America into a tyrannical state. We are the only ones who can change this!
Political parties did not exist in 1789. Washington despised the idea of political associations, formed in such a way as to pit one group of citizens against another. In his farewell speech in 1796 he said:
[While speaking on the subject — The very idea of the power and the right of the people to establish Government presupposes the duty of every individual to obey the established Government.]
“All obstructions to the execution of the Laws, all combinations and associations, under whatever plausible character, with the real design to direct, control, counteract, or awe the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, are destructive of this fundamental principle, and of fatal tendency. They [political parties] serve to organize faction, to give it an artificial and extraordinary force; to put, in the place of the delegated will of the nation, the will of a party, often a small but artful and enterprising minority of the community; and, according to the alternate triumphs of different parties, to make the public administration the mirror of the ill-concerted and incongruous projects of faction, rather than the organ of consistent and wholesome plans digested by common counsels, and modified by mutual interests.
“However combinations or associations of the above description may now and then answer popular ends, they are likely, in the course of time and things, to become potent engines, by which cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men will be enabled to subvert the power of the people, and to usurp for themselves the reins of government; destroying afterwards the very engines, which have lifted them to unjust dominion.”
[Bold emphasis not in original text.]
Rather than political parties, our Founders saw a different political spectrum than we are used to seeing. Most of us have been taught, if anything, that Democrats are left-leaning and Republicans are right-leaning, but left and right of what? What is the center? How does one measure Left and Right?
In his incredible book, A Miracle that Changed the World: The 5000 year Leap, Skousen suggests our Founders sought to find the balance between Tyranny and Anarchy. Tyranny being total centralized power in one person our a small group of persons (monarchy) versus Anarchy – “no government, no law, no systematic control, and no governmental power.” The yardstick is power, rather than political parties. Skousen defines the opposites in terms of who has the power. The Founders’ objective was to find a balance between the two extremes. With tyranny, all power rests at the top with the “king,” so Skousen calls this Ruler’s Law. The opposite, he calls PEOPLE’s Law because the people have the power to control the government, “and political power is maintained at the balanced center with enough government to maintain security, justice, good order, but not enough government to abuse the people.”
Sadly, what we see in today’s America is much closer to what Skousen calls Ruler’s Law, or tyranny! Here are a few evidences from his list:
“3. The people are not equal, but are divided into classes and are all looked upon as “subjects” of the king.
“5. The thrust of governmental power is from the top down, not from the people upward.
“6. The people have no unalienable rights. The”king giveth and the king taketh away.”
“8. The ruler issues edicts which are called “the law.” He then interprets the law and enforces it, thus maintaining tyrannical control over the people.
“9. Under Ruler’s Law, problems are always solved by issuing more edicts or laws, setting up more bureaus, harassing the people with more regulators, and charging the people for these “services” by continually adding to their burden of taxes.”
Our Founders were remarkable men, and the fact that such a concentration of incredibly gifted, creative, articulate, educated men gathered together at the conception of America is nothing short of miraculous. None could mange to come up with a Constitution alone. It required four months of discussions and arguments to find the balance they sought. They succeeded! In spite of the ridicule from various individuals today, our Constitution stands strong, the longest surviving Constitution, binding together what has proven to be the most successful experiment in governing in history.
Have you realized that from the dawn of time through the birth of America, civilization progressed only so far. Yes, a wheel and fire were found, but little else in that vast expanse of time, and yet in the mere 236 years since America’s birth, we have not just fire, but lasers, not just carts pulled by horses, but jets and space crafts landing on the moon. We have medicines based on scientific research, not just superstition. Think of all that have transpired just in your, or your parents’, or your grandparents’ lifetime. In the early 1900’s the electric light did not yet exist. Cars did not exist. And certainly, there were no McDonald’s! This explosion of innovation and invention was PERMITTED by LIBERTY like the world had never known! This liberty, our Founders believed was unalienable because it came from Providence, from God. Jefferson referred to Providence as “Nature and Nature’s God,” in the writing of the Declaration of Independence.
When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
Why are we, as Americans, allowing our liberties to be stripped from us?
Why is CONGRESS not functioning in its capacity to control the Administrative branch?
Why do we, the people, sit back and let our government seize control of our life, liberty, and our pursuit of happiness?
WHY? BECAUSE WE ARE IGNORANT!!!!! We are unaware, unlearned in the Constitution. We might know the preface, the Preamble, but not the concepts. The GOVERNMENT is supposed to work FOR us, not condescend to report to us lies and half-truths. We, as adult Americans, must assume the mantle of authority laid upon us in our Constitution and hold our elected officials accountable TO the US Constitution. With FREEDOM, comes responsibility! If we don’t, the liberties we have known will not survive for our grandchildren to enjoy.

Via CMBlake We have been plugging all along on this treasonous administration and the erosion of our freedoms. The DC politicians absolutely have disdain for our US Constitution as it is limiting their power. They have been working even pre Obama to destroy it and Obama's administration is going full speed ahead. URGENT UPDATE: NEW EVIDENCE COMES OUT OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS' INVOLVEMENT IN PLAN TO EFFECTUALLY REWRITE THE U.S. CONSTITUTI … Read More
I visited a 97 year old woman today, and she graced me with 3 hours or more of conversation on any number of topics. Back before it is the norm for women to work outside the home, she was a nurse at Pittsburgh’s Childrens’ Hospital. Inevitably, the conversation turned to President Obama. I do not make a habit of shoving my observations down other people’s throats, so I approached the subject cautiously. Mrs. K was a lifelong Democrat, worked the local polls for 19 years as a volunteer, and actively supported every Democratic candidate, including local elections, starting with FDR.
As we spoke, she recounted the devastation of the Great Depression and noted that similar unemployment numbers exist today. Cautiously, I asked her if she intended to vote Democratic in 2012 to re-elect President Obama. She hesitated, and indicated that as much as it pained her to do so, she would have to vote inn opposition to his re-election. For this dear lady, his foreign birth status is not an issue. His immigration issue is not an issue. Although there are now any number of potential problems with the current administrations rule, the one thing that has inspired this lady to look at Michele Bachmann and Herman Cain as possible recipients of her vote next year his President Obama’s promise to build jobs, and his inability to do so.
When WE, THE PEOPLE can shrug our shoulders over economic news such as the article below and start talking about The Voice, the new season of Big Brother, or who won the Stanley Cup (congrats Bruins!) and just HOPE & CHANGE someone out there gets things under control, well …
“If it doesn’t cost you anything, it won’t mean anything to you.”
the voice of my Dad echos in my mind. Have we become so small minded that if a thing doesn’t touch us personally, we just brush it off? The US economy is VERY ILL with millions of people are unemployed or under-employed. Where are the jobs the huge stimulus was supposed to bring? We’re so TOP-HEAVY the American-body simply cannot support it. There are people who WANT to work, but small businesses aren’t hiring for fear of raised taxes and increased regulations (Obamacare!) If you aren’t a HUGE fish, you better keep your eyes open, cause they’re coming for your job, too!
Or when the American people can turn away from evidence of illegal activity in complete denial, how can we hope to acquire a government that is able to empathize with the people, to show compassion AND strength simultaneously? Even if we are unsure, is it wise to discount the evidence?
