Life, Liberty and Freedom for All

Don’t bite the hand that feeds you.- unknown

This simple phrase contains a profound nugget of wisdom, but that many are unaware of. Whoever you are dependent on has power over you and can control you. If you understand this concept, it is not hard to understand the dangers of collectivism. Collectivism pools the resources of many to be distributed by a few. It can wield great power and heavy responsibility. Because of this, most positions of authority attract many seeking personal gain and it scares away the majority of the average people.

Collectivism, within a government, is not unlike a Ponzi Scheme except many are forced by mandate to give instead of being conned into it.  Collectivism takes choice, freedom and individualism out of the picture and it takes away your right to decide for yourself.

Eventually, when an individual questions or tries to break away from the authority of those making the decisions on his/her behalf, those seeking to keep their power try to effectively hinder any opposition. One way is through labeling, symbolizing and dehumanizing. Our country has employed using terms such as “terrorist,” “mentally ill,” or “conspiracy theorist” on those brave enough to speak out.

There is another tactic that goes along with being labeled and it is being used to undermine the foundation of our nation. It is what many abusers and those skilled at covert manipulation utilize and it is called projection.

If you step back and look at the larger picture of what is going on, it is hard to believe that anyone is protecting us, when the same entity is spying on us, labeling us, stealing from us, lying, covering up wrongdoing, overriding our right to choose, justifying taking our right’s and implying we are the cause of another person’s actions. There is no equality or safety in this. Our rights and perceived security are contingent on our obedience to the wills of those who tell us what is for our own good. In private lives, this is called domestic violence.

I implore you to stop listening to the media about how horrible everyone is. I ask you to talk with your neighbors and even examine those that you disagree with the most.  Do you honestly think that any one of them is a true terrorist? Do you think that they are so unlike you and are such a threat that they deserve to have their rights and liberty taken away without any real crime?

We are being asked to keep an eye on our neighbors, to make sure they are not doing anything suspicious. The stage has been set for us to believe that all people are suspects and that they are potentially either suicidal or violent.

The government wishes for us to believe that there is an epidemic and we need to be vigilant against it for our own good. And because most people really are good people and want to help and care about others, we are pressured into going along with it. It is part of who we are, as humans, to have passions, emotions and to be different.

It is not to say that there aren’t extremes or that people do not commit suicide or become violent towards others. But there is not one person immune from having a finger pointed at them. Our government needs for us to believe that there are those that need to be forcibly “helped” for their own good just like our government needed us to believe that our friends, loved ones and neighbors are terrorists as well.

Who will question if an activist commits suicide when they are depressed? Who will question the government asking the public to look for an FBI agent/whistleblower on the run? Or who will question if that same agent is found dead if he or she was said to be depressed and likely violent? Who is going to question the reason the government is looking to confine a veteran when it is said the veteran is unstable, depressed or violent? This applies to anyone. Are you going to be one of those that questions authority and stands up for your neighbor or will let someone take them away “for their own good?”

This is not easy for me to speak about. I am admittedly afraid, just like many others I have talked to. The media and the government would like us to believe that we are in the minority to question the government’s actions. But have you actually talked with your neighbors, to your family and to your friends openly? Don’t ask them about the issues the media wants you to focus on. Ask your own questions and draw your own conclusions.

I don’t know of one person that has actually said that they like where our country is going. Our travel is now restricted, what we choose to put in our bodies is being regulated, what we own can be taken, our privacy is granted by permission, and the restrictions keep growing. Ask yourself; is this really what you want? Is this what you want for your kids, your neighbors and your community? Do you really believe that the growing restrictions have been making our country safer and a better place to live?

I know that it is possible to be labeled as a “terrorist,” “mentally-ill,” “fear-monger” and more when speaking out. I know that my reputation can be ruined and I can be discredited among other things, but what is life without liberty? Even if I choose not to speak up or if I hide from what is going on, I have chosen to create my own prison. Even if I am safe and I stand by while others have their rights taken away, I will have lost all that I am. And even if I have secured a moments peace, a time will come when I will find my rights forcibly taken away as those before me.

Liberty is about principles that can reach across every barrier no matter a person’s religion, sex, ethnicity, nationality, socioeconomic class, educational background, health, age, lifestyle or however else a group can be defined. Liberty is about individualism, true equality, true freedom and true tolerance.  It is about treating others as you would like to be treated and not forcing others into what you would do yourself or what you think they should be doing.

Without preserving individual rights the minority will only exist until the majority deems otherwise. A person, such as I, may be taken down, but if we stand together, united on the same principles, we can peaceably change our nation. We can say no. We can take our rights back as they are no one else’s to claim or to grant. Stop believing that we are helpless. Stop believing that no matter what we do it doesn’t change anything.  Stop falling for the fact that a piece of paper can stop you from uniting with your community and standing up for what is right. You are important. You are what is needed to make our neighborhoods, communities and nation better place to live.

I am willing to sacrifice all that I have so that freedom and liberty can prevail. Will you?

Thank you for reading.

  1. Dose not the declaration of independence speak of a (Long train of abuses) ? It is the way you bit the hand that feeds you counts . (Don’t kill the hand that feeds you yet just wound it to were it cannot function properly) .You are willing to sacrifice all you have to preserve liberty and freedom, question is what is the percentage of people willing to do the same ? not many .

    1. Leo,
      You say there are not many. Tell me, how do you know this? Do you know how many there are? If so, how do you know? Has there been a count that I am not aware of? Or are you saying there are not many because that is what you hear and see on the enemy’s mainstream? Do you think our enemy is going to publicize our numbers? Do you believe there are not enough of us? Are you trying to foster defeatism on From the Trenches?
      Our people are filling the streets, arming and equipping, and we outnumber our enemies thousands to one and we are going to win.

      1. Do you know how many there are ? (No) Not a part of the enemies mainstream propaganda . the numbers do not have to be publicized as I have my finger on certain intel in all fifty states . at the moment talk is cheap . I enjoy your articles .

  2. When you’re in line at the store, walking through town or part of a large crowd, look at the people around you. In a lot of the faces you can see that somethings not right. People seem to be weighed down. Whether or not this represents some sort of awakening, confusion or a simple fear of facing the truth of what this country has become, who knows. I do think there are many people on the verge of letting those responsible for all the corruption and suffering know, that “Enough is Enough!”

  3. truth be told, I do not care about you or your personal state. I do not care if you starve or die of illness. I do not care if you reap what you have sown around the world, seemingly starting in Palestine.


    does that really denigrate my right to defend myself, my loved ones, or my community (which includes you scum) from any threats foreign or domestic???

    If so, please explain.

    Seems to some, that I would have to qualify as a decent human being before I have a right to keep and bear arms. And who exactly gets to decide if I am a decent human being???

    Some, left and right, are presented on the MSM saying mental defectives have no right to self defense, as they call for them to not have a right to keep and bear arms. Who are they to say who gets a right to defend themselves???

    It wasn’t too long ago that the establishment was saying that homosexuals were mental defectives. Under the rule some would force onto other people, NO gays had a right to their 2nd amendment being respected.

    And now, someone, who’s name isn’t showing up in any MSM reporting, is suggesting that there are some people who do not share the 2nd amendment rights the rest of us enjoy.

    FUK them.

    Would being gay really make someone a threat? What else do the established rulers say would deny you your right to keep and bear arms???

    We all see it. They say it. Constitutionalists, libertarians, 2nd amendment defenders, etc etc have been denoted as terrorists by some people. And it is the same people who said that homosexuals also are a threat to society.

    Fuk them. This is not their country. This is our country and they are no more than you.

  4. Homos used to be considered criminals, then they became only “mentally defective”. Now they seem to be considered God’s gift to humanity, according to the daily news. How did this change come about in 50 years? Some think the recent changes are disturbing; pick and choose? I’d accept homos if the freedoms we took for granted 50 years ago were restored.

    1. @ RobW Do not compromise …the American people compromising in part is what got the United States in the quagmire it is in . secondly I could not agree with you more on the homosexual agenda .

    2. Short Answer: Homosexuals don’t pro-create.

      People that don’t get born due to the nature of the sexes of the parents, one doesn’t have to send in to wars to kill each other for fancy colours. They are the perfect solution to the problems of the eugenicists.

  5. You guys got homos on the brain. Why? That was just an example I used to showcase how some people have used their own opinions to deny other people their rights.

    Like the no fly list, who gets to decide who else doesn’t have the same rights others enjoy?

    Who decided that constitutionalists, libertarians, 2nd amendment supporters etc etc are terrorists and do not deserve their rights being respected?

    Does anyone really need to live up to other people’s standards for their right to be respected?

    I had a psychology class in community college and I learned that there are many types of mental disorders. But there are very few disorders that would make someone a threat to themselves and others. So who gets to decide which mental defectives are to loose their right to defend themselves?

    As for the homos, you are both right. Once they wanted their rights respected. That has morphed into them wanting special rights that others do not have.

    If you are gay and want to marry, I couldn’t care less. If you are a gay couple and want to demand special rights that single Americans do not have, then you are no better than the hetro couples who demand special rights that single people do not have.

    Women’s rights? What the hell? Does any woman really have special rights that men do not have? I recall some chick saying to Mitt Romney that she wanted free contraceptives. There is no such thing as free contraceptives. What she was really saying was that she wanted government to force other people to pay her bills. No one has a right to force others to pay their bills. That is called slavery, even when it is government that is taking your cash to pay other people’s bills.

    1. PP,
      I agree with your differentiation between equal rights and “special” rights. Homosexuality is just one issue, and it was you who brought it up. Consider 2nd Amendment supporters. We have a right to possess weapons, and why not full auto, RPGs, SAMs, etc.? Because that would put us on a more “equal” ground with the mercenaries employed by our oppressors.
      Those seeking special rights, i.e. racial, sexual, and government operatives, seem to be successfully making progress, while we who only want to be left alone, are getting screwed. Sorry, I left out corporate operatives, who, as agents of non human entities, are the same as government mind slaves. Sorry, enough rant. Be well, Rob
