We would like to thank all of the veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect the liberty we hold so dear. We are truly grateful for your service to our great nation. It is with you in mind that we have dedicated so much effort to ensure that the sacrifices made over our countries brief history have not been in vain.
In the spirit of Veterans Day, I want to share a story from the Civil War that some of you may not be familiar with. In the heat of the battle, Abraham Lincoln authorized what was essentially the illegal seizure of Confederate General Robert E Lees 200 acre estate. His estate became what we now know as Arlington National Cemetery. Ultimately The Supreme Court ruled that the U.S. government had seized his estate without due process and ordered it returned to his family in the same condition as when it was illegally confiscated. I truly believe that we will see a similar resolution.
I know that many of you have serious doubts as to how this will play out,this is evidenced by the sheer panic that we witness at the first hint of bad news.Let me assure you that there are those in power who have realized the errors of the past and the wheels are in motion to correct this grave injustice.I also have the utmost confidence that Judge Sweeney and others understand the grave implications that would befall our nation if this lawless seizure of two private companies were allowed to stand. I understand that I have leveled some rather harsh critiques of our government and will continue to do so when justified, but please know that I do truly believe that we are now on the path to freedom.
In the spirit of the Civil War, I would compare our present situation to that of the arrival of Major General John Buford Jr.s arrival to Gettysburg Pennsylvania. Like John we are vastly outnumbered and like John we must have the courage to stand and fight. Like John, we now occupy the high ground and as long as we do not give in to our fears and run we will emerge victoriously. I am doing all I can, but ultimately it is up to each and every one of you to dispel the phantoms of fear and for Gods sake never surrender. We owe it to every soldier who has sacrificed his or her life for the freedoms we share.
I want to close by reposting an excerpt from our June 30th post https://timhoward717.com/2014/06/30/the-price-of-freedom-is-eternal-vigilance….”:
“Many are interested in these company’s purely on an investment standpoint only. Although I have a modest investment here, I follow it more so for the concern for my Country! What captivates me about your writings is that I believe you too are more concerned about the outcome more so than the investment. I mean the loss of hardworking peoples money is bad, but the blatant unchecked theft is worse. People who engage themselves care for either of the two reasons or both but most sheeple don’t have a clue about these Lawsuits or any of the other scandals. I mainly sit back and read everyone’s comments to get the feel of the people. So for those in the position of power who too sit back and read others comments just to get a feel for the people. I’ll leave you with this story.
On July 4th, 2006 I took my family to Washington DC and walked through Arlington National Cemetery. We spent the afternoon there from the tomb of the unknown to JFK, and we finished up at the Iraq war section. We saw many fresh graves and took the time to read every name on every stone we walked by! My wife and daughter were tearing up as they read the names and remarked that one died on his birthday. Most young men were only teenagers when they died. My son asked me “Dad why is that plywood there?” I said it was a grave that was dug awaiting for the burial ceremony. He was so innocent at that time but it was one of the most powerful experiences my family ever done together. Today he serves in the Marines as did I and his Grandpa in the Army and Great Grandpa. We left Arlington and walked to the National mall to see all the monuments and wondered why you couldn’t drive and why were all these people there as we didn’t realize DC had a big event that day. We ended up at the Washington monument to watch a concert and one of the best firework shows I ever seen. That day was such a patriotic day and it makes me proud to be an American.
Thank you “Tim” for the patriotic work you do!” Scott S.”
