“Path to Glory”
Paul Vallely (MG, US Army Ret) and Tom Marin
Today, we Americans are marching to a new ‘Path to Glory” for our country much as our founders and ancestors had to do. Today, we must be Americans First and rise above partisan politics and political parties. We must face the future through a reality prism and seek to restore this great country, our Republic and the Constitution. The challenge ahead is to select common sense leaders who understand our challenges and have the vision to lead us to a secure America so all can be in the pursuit of happiness and a thankful life.
On April 19th 1775, British regular troops and colonists came to blows in what many believe was the real beginning of the Revolutionary War.
Evil has many forms, and simply stated, it is a word to describe the acts of omission or acts of commission to inflict wanton harm or destruction or, according to Wiktionary, a deliberate violation of some accepted moral code of behavior, i.e. a fiduciary obligation. Evil, as defined by The Free Dictionary, is that which causes harm, misfortune, or destruction: as in a leader’s power to do both good and/or evil.
The history of human existence, an accumulation of human events, has included the dominance to control resources and enslaving the free and the weak in order to increase power and greed. It was only natural for our founding fathers to plant our flag in our course of time in history and lay claim to life based on freedom and liberty. It makes perfect sense that our founding fathers began the Declaration of Independence with the words, “When in the course of human events…” Our enemies both foreign and domestic do not want to discuss the course of human events, events and facts that happened, but only want to focus on their elixir of the future, “tomorrow”, aka the new world order, based once again on natural resources, the consumption of resources, and control.
The manifestation of evil that we have been witnessing, especially the last seven years, as well as the complete lack of enforcement of our laws by people we have entrusted with our safety and security, not only patronizes who we are as individuals, our heritage and what we stand for as a nation but also hurls us into great risk. We can no longer tolerate this ongoing sabotage by omission with its willful blindness and negligent disregard. It has been a deliberate effort to accomplish the complete destruction of America and its way of life. The intent is to create a new world order based on resource management where American citizens and other freedom-loving people will be part of the resources to be managed as the lowest replaceable units. An American citizen needs only to read the details of The Affordable Care Act to understand this herding.
At the Battle of Concord and Lexington, ordinary residents of the colony of Massachusetts made a decision of conscience to stand up against the increasingly oppressive tyranny of King George III and the British Parliament after a series of methodical steps to limit their freedom, their physical security, and to inhibit their health and welfare by limiting their retention of the benefits of their own labor and use of their private property by raising taxes and controlling commerce. Even in 1763, the cartel of entrenched parliamentarians did not want to relinquish control to subordinated subjects who were regarded merely as producers and consumers of goods and services for the benefit of The Bank of England and who reported to the higher authority of the crown and the elite, all knowing, ministers of control. Unable to coerce the residents under their authority, the British Parliament ordered the seizure of their guns and ammunition.
Nothing has changed. Human behavior and the battle of good vs. evil is ongoing. The patriots at Concord knew it, and as Ronald Reagan clearly stated almost two centuries later, “The Founding Fathers knew a government can’t control the economy without controlling people. And they knew when a government sets out to do that, it must use force and coercion to achieve its purpose. So we have come to a time for choosing.”
Through the years, with all the “legislative” tools and devices, from the 1760’s and 1770’s, from The Sugar Act, The Stamp Act, the Quartering Act, The Declaratory Act, The Townshend Revenue Acts, The Tea Act, The Intolerable and Coercive Acts, and The Prohibitory Act to 1978-2008 to The Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act of 1980, to The Credit Card Rules and Credit Card Act, to The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act , to The Commodity Futures Modernization Act, to The Community Reinvestment Act, and to 2009-2016 and Obamacare and the Trans Pacific Partnership, which was negotiated in secret for a reason, and to the 229 restrictive executive orders that equate to 1,086 pages issued by the current administrative controller, Reagan’s words rang true in 1981 as if he was speaking in 1775 at the North Concord Bridge. It was as if he was establishing a bridge for the path to glory to the past and to tomorrow for today. Our past, present, and future (Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow) are based on the confrontation of good vs evil. It is in the genre of novels, art, and movies all throughout the history of man and the history of Christianity. This is why “progressives”, which are actually fascists and communists, want to rewrite history and forget our heroes. Our past also confirms the confrontation of evil and its consistent defeats. At each and every juncture in American history, individuals made a decision to stand up and be free. To do otherwise, they would relegate their destiny to evil. Today we must confront “The Total Collective Effort of Evil” in our time and to do so we must recognize “the artful liars” and all the hidden agendas in selling us out to a system of control. Statesmen need to come forward to actually serve the people and preserve and protect our Republic. The “politocracy” must be eradicated. A very simple question needs to be asked as we evaluate how to proceed at each event, “Who benefits and who gets hurt?” We believe the minutemen at Concord and Ronald Reagan knew the simple answer and the courage it took to never relinquish freedom.
“There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.” – Ronald Reagan
“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing” – Edmund Burke
“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, whether of one, a few, or many, and whether hereditary, self-appointed, or elective, may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.”
— James Madison, The Federalist, No. 47
