True measure

The true measure of the patriot is steadfastness. We all have small moments of wanderlust in us, tearing off on paths that others may not follow, testing limits, testing ourselves. We act out of strength just as we act out of weakness. That is the nature of man. Yet when we strive to hold true, to stand firm to our beliefs as free men, as a group, to carry our weapons and defend our land, despite our differences, the weak become strong, and the wandering hold together as one. For then we are united in something much greater than the elemental whims of man. Together as patriots we are much more of the courageous and less of the selfish, we are brothers in arms.

Excellent and amen!

I'm beginning to think you might be the re-incarnate form of one of our founding fathers. ;-)

We are all here, silently doing what you as always poignantly write, even if we cannot express it as well.

A great post and it is full of thought. I wonder about some of the "elemental whims of man" that are so prevalent in the State of Kalifornia. We can hope that there will be more patriots will be willing to stand up for what is good and right, enough to change the thoughtless paths that are so encumbering to those that want freedom.

After the results of today's election, Tyrants around the World and their ilk in the U.S. are having to review their plans on just how weak the American People really are. May they sleep in fear, and look for easier prey.

Never had a brother that looked like you. It may take some getting used to.

United we stand, divided we fall. We all have to work together to save what we love.

The fight is NOT over. It has just began. We were only partially successful yesterday and much work remains between now and November 2012!

Continue to prepare for the worst and hope for the best.

Continue to invest in precious metals -- of all calibers, food, water and survival supplies.

The fed is monetizing the debt as I type this comment. We're going to need all we can stockpile before this nightmare ends!

Just sayin'
