The American Revolution Continues

The American Revolution was fought over one key principle: free agency.

Before the world was, the battle in heaven was between those that wanted to exercise their free agency and those that did not.

That same battle was fought between the colonies in the new world and the British. Whether the issue is freedom of worship or taxation without proper representation, the revolution was based on the ability to choose -- the proper exercise of freedom.

From Jamestown in 1607, the Mayflower landing in 1620, the lose establishment of the 13 original colonies, the French and Indian War (1754–1763), the Boston Tea Party (1773), George Washington's under-feed, under-dressed, under-armed army, their losses in New York and New Jersey, and their eventual victory in Trenton on Christmas 1776, the Declaration of Independence (1776), the Articles of Confederation (1777), the army's retraining and rejuvenation at Valley Forge (1777–1778), the Battle of Saratoga (1777), the Siege of Yorktown (1781), the surrender/treaty in 1783, and the greatest Constitution (1787) and Bill of Rights (1789) ever written, agreed upon and implemented.

We see that all over the world, free agency is being denied. There are those that desire power over others -- to control and manipulate as they see fit.

In America, our Revolution continues today. The enemy is less the terrorists (together we can defeat them), rather those that desire to remove our free agency here at home. The enemy is within--other Americans desiring to enforce their freedom-hating agenda on the masses.

We see it in the courts. We see in the classroom. We see it in the family. We see it in Congress.

Michael Savage was right: the enemy is within.
