Seventeen months of the American people taking action into their own hands before Congress finally gets on board.  Two hundred and forty-one years later, do you see much difference?

Americans, your fate is your responsibility.  If you expect government to take care of you, they may get around to it…eventually and maybe not in the way you like.  The beauty of America is you can make your life what you want it to be.  All you have to do is do it.


May God continue to bless Americans liberties and natural rights.
