Messengers of Truth, Defenders of Liberty: Remembering What Is Real
As you might imagine, it gets very tiresome (and more than a little depressing) writing reports which expose government rat bastards, their stooges and shills and other assorted liars, scamsters, scandal-mongers, criminal perps, psycho-stalkers and lowlife losers.
So for a refreshing change, here's a list of indivduals I consider to be Messengers of Truth and Defenders of Liberty. Some are acquaintances, friends, and/or professional colleagues. Others are those I may not know personally, but whose work and activism I admire and value.
Some of these individuals are unlawfully incarcerated at this moment for the uncompromising stand they have taken and the principles they uphold. Some are being persecuted. But all have won my respect and I thank them for their contributions to all who stand for Liberty and seek Truth. In a brief phrase, they "remember what is real".

Wayne Blanchard
Ed and Elaine Brown
Jeremy Floyd
Charles Giuliani
Lisa Guliani
Keith Hansen (Vyzygoth)
Michael Herzog
Sherry Peel Jackson
Kathy Kasten
Devvy Kidd

Jackie McGauley
Julianne McKinney
Ellen Mariani
John Perna
Janet Phelan
Danny Riley
Ed Schooling
Karl Schwarz
Lt. Eric Shine
Geral Sosbee
Rick Stanley
Eleanor White
Carl F. Worden
This is far from a complete list. But these individuals, from my observations over a period of years, all exemplify the principles outlined in this piece I wrote in 2005. May God richly bless them all.

Remembering What Is Real

A Real Patriot loves his country and the principles on which it was founded, despite the corruption of its government.

A Real Patriot knows beyond a shadow of doubt that his/her rights and liberties are bestowed by God (whatever religion or lack thereof.)

A Real Patriot recognizes Individual Rights as the Soul of Freedom.

A Real Patriot respects the individual rights, personal boundaries and spiritual integrity of others. He thus recognizes the Inviolability of Personhood.

A Real Patriot despises Socialism, Communism, Fascism, Democracy, Utopianism or any form of collectivism as a basis for government.

A Real Patriot seeks Liberty and Justice for All and pursues the goal single-mindedly, whatever it takes, no matter the personal circumstances or hardship; no matter the consequences to himself.

A Real Patriot will not compromise his principles for any reason, including political or personal expediency.

A Real Patriot spends his time fighting tyranny, wherever he finds it, in whatever ways he is capable.

A Real Patriot exposes government corruption, wherever he finds it, from the lowest to the highest level.

A Real Patriot seeks the truth and gathers facts before disseminating information to others.

A Real Patriot supports others (in whatever ways possible) who have proven by their actions that they are standing up for their country.

A Real Patriot does not waste time in petty sniping matches and arguing over minutiae, especially of a subjective/personal nature.

A Real Patriot does not plant the seeds of suspicion, sow discord or engage in bashing and trashing of other sincere patriots, especially with gratuitous and unsubstantiated name-calling.

A Real Patriot should have no trouble agreeing to disagree with others on secondary issues, as long as there are agreement and solidarity on the main issue: Defending Liberty and the God-given unalienable rights protected and guaranteed under the United States Constitution.

A Real Patriot backs up his words by taking action and encourages others to do so.

A Real Patriot sets an example which will inspire others to stand up for their rights and their country, rather than seeking followers.

A Real Patriot loves liberty so much that he is willing to fight to the death, if necessary, and truly knows in his heart that death is far preferable to slavery.

A Real Patriot knows that when the government has become rotten to the core, it is time for a Revolution.

There can be no Revolution, whatever form that takes, without Real Patriots uniting to defend their God-given, unalienable, Constitutionally protected and guaranteed rights.
