Idaho County Chapter Principled Citizenship 2012 F.W. Whitley
This program reintroduces Americans to an enduring symbol of their heritage Tree of Liberty
Washington’s Cruisers Flag 1775
When we enter voting booths, one question is appropriate to ask: What is the basis of your vote’s decision?
Liberty does not have the luxury of election by an ignorant population
One sure method to separate citizens from liberty is by fear mongering The old “cattle chute” mentality
Fear mongering …used by every petty third world dictator known to man
But a voting booth is not a cattle chute!
America’s two major parties routinely push voters with fear Votes are no longer cast FOR principle
Votes are cast “against the other guy” Party over principles
America has an unprincipled government Because voters choose party over principle!
Every election, voters are herded into crowd pens Prepared by the duopoly
Crowd pen “choice”—leads to same slaughterhouse of individual liberty
Fellow citizens… Fear is not part of America’s heritage! Nor are you an animal to be herded
If political fear were part of your American heritage… We would have no Bill of Rights !
Stand on the courage of principle! Arm yourself with knowledge
The Tree of Liberty is not a bonsai tree!
The Tree of Liberty does not thrive in a box! Bunker Hill Battle Flag, 17 June 1775
Skilled demagogues may distort history for their own purposes But do not be fooled
The U.S. political duopoly insist voters “only” have two choices… A Democrat box A Republican box
And the “logic” these two big-box parties use to justify voting for them? Your vote is: “the lesser of two evils”
But, when voters choose the lesser of two evils— Voters will always elect evil!
The inescapable conclusion is … Party over principles = unprincipled Lesser of two evils = evil
Hypocritically, the big-box “choice” is claimed to represent liberty! But, does it?
Both major parties mistake Liberty! Continental Flag, 17 June 1775 at Bunker Hill
Liberty does not thrive a partisan box! Despite cradle-to-grave fear mongering!
Liberty in a box = a bonsai tree
≠ But a bonsai tree does not equal a Tree of Liberty!
That bonsai tree is good for nothing Beyond a hobby or a conversation piece
≠ It does not provide for the beasts of the field
≠ It cannot provide for the fowl of the air
≠ It will not supply shade in the heat of the day
≠ Nor can it make timber for homes
Do not accept the box! Dribbled attention every four years by partisans… Will not yield liberty!
True liberty… Must grow in the fertile soil of God-given unalienable rights!
Otherwise, it can be no Tree of Liberty ! But something altogether different…
As for the puppet’s liberty?… That is not on the puppet master’s mind as he plays his partisan strings
And sadly, over time, those partisan strings… Will prove not to the liking of a free people
Support your local Constitution Party county chapter Together, let us replant American liberty
Otherwise… Thomas Jefferson 13 Nov 1787 Letter to William Stephens Smith The Papers of Thomas Jefferson, ed. Julian P. Boyd, vol. 12, p. 356 (1955).
