For the beginning seems to be more than half of the whole, and many of the things that are inquired after become illuminated along with it. - Aristotle
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. Ronald Reagan
"It is commonly the case, that Christian liberty, as well as civil, has been lost by little and little; and experience has taught, that it is not easy to recover it, when once lost. So precious a jewel is always to be watched with a careful eye: for no people are likely to enjoy liberty long, that are not zealous to preserve it." Elisha Williams, 1744

Minnesota Voters Alliance versus State of Minnesota at Appeals Court this Wednesday
Minneapolis, Minnesota, May 13, 2013—Election integrity is up for grabs before the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday, May 15, 2013, in a federal lawsuit filed by the Minnesota Voters Alliance (MVA).
The State of Minnesota will be defending its position that it has no duty to confirm the eligibility of anyone before counting his or her vote. The State contends that each voter who claims they are eligible must be allowed to vote, on that basis alone.[More]

Remembering Earth Day.... never forget!
Ira Einhorn was on stage hosting the first Earth Day event at the Fairmount Park in Philadelphia on April 22, 1970. Seven years later, police raided his closet and found the "composted" body of his ex-girlfriend inside a trunk. [story]
Fox News and CNN "Terrorist Experts" Sites Pro-Constitutional groups as suspects?
Tell me "expert" what group has targeted civilians, women, children etc for terror? What target would an anti-governemnt group target? Government buildings, police, army, etc. Not people they assume they exist to save. How illiterate is our "experts"?! How safe does that make you feel.
Is the Government after your Children
or is this just "Fear Mongering?"
How are they going to do this? Well, here's one way.
Can we conclude that "Liberty" in the eyes of our Government is not for the people, but for the "Will of the People" which must be determined by "educated" bureaucrats? Are we going to stand for that? That depends on you.
Global Warming effecting Maple Production?
According to the City of Brainerd and observations from council members, maple syrup production has been detrimentally affected by global warming. So I decided to try my hand at it. So far I am overwhelmed with production, and this production has detrimentally affected by normal routine. Needless to say that myth is BUSTED!
[Picture: Week One almost final results - still have all the burners going, along with two outside wood burners]
Oh yea. Nice snow in April. The City of Brainerd also sited lack of snow for recreation through observations by council members due to the rise of CO2 in the air. Needless to say that myth is BUSTED!
Progressivism is Anti-American (at least fundamentally)
The Minnesota Freedom Council open forum meeting hightlights
Thanks first of all to those that joined us. It was very important for us to set our agenda out front, and our purpose. Thanks to Pastor Ken Carlton from Providence Community Church and your outstanding devotion to the word of God and the sacred fire of Liberty. Here are some links I mentioned.
Classic war against your enemy is to cut off their supply. So is this an act of War by the U.S. against it's own people? Are they using tax payer's money to deny tax payer's freedoms? Seems the USDA confirms this. Where else are they now?
Is this war? I hope not.... but we're looking into it.
Man-Made Global Warming is Brainerd's official position.

As perceived by a letter to be signed by Brainerd Mayor James Wallin and approved by the council on a 5 to 1 vote. [read letter here]. The claims made by the city of Brainerd is that carbon dioxide (CO2), the air we breathe out, is a pollutant. That this pollutant has been extremely detrimental to the City of Brainerd and the surrounding population, I'm sure to include all of Central Minnesota. Mayor Wallin sites "record floods", "droughts", "dying oak trees", "no maple syrup harvest", "excessive greening of our lakes", "lack of snow for recreation" and "ice storms" as all positive proofs from too much carbon dioxide (the air plants breathe in and "exhales" water vapor and oxygen out.) But that's not all! The City of Brainerd also says that our forests will disappear at the end of this century to be replaced by prairie. Fish will pack up and move, birds will up and fly away never to return all to escape the extreme heat.
What a bold position for a City to take in one night. There was no study completed, no committee conveyed, no public discourse, nothing.
Why Justice is Blind
February 28, 2013
In regard to Brainerd City Council’s decision not to hold a hearing it seems necessary to remind ourselves that justice is to be handed out regardless of who an individual is. It doesn’t take the personalities into account only the charge weighed with evidence. A poor man, a rich man, a jerk or a priest are to receive equal justice under the law. Just as gravity makes no determination between heavy and light and pulls all objects at equal force, so we should make no determination between people on their qualities or position but on the principle itself.[read more]
Sidewalks or not sidewalks... that is the question.
When coming together and becoming a City, under our current laws in Minnesota the City has the sole responsibility for the layout and creation of infrastructure. [read more]
Speakeasy Host Reply's by charging Alderman Scheeler with abuse of power and seeks a hearing... which Mayor James Wallin and Council President Bonnie Cumberland flatly rejects. Read Here
It isn't in the interest of the Minnesota Freedom Council to get into the day to day activities of City to Citizen governing as we focus more into the conduct of government; will they do what they are supposed to do, and how do they view the people- are they the objective or the obstacle. This incident with Guy Green is of interest to us, not only because Guy helped found this organization but that the means of which an elected official went about to counter the debate by usurping an individual's natural God given rights rang so loud to do nothing would be evil. Guy Green's actions are perfect within the scope of how we are to act as a free society as he stated at the meeting. But with the rejection of due process what is the alternative to react to a flagrant act of tyranny? Does the Mayor of Brainerd really understand that in just those little words he initially confirmed Guy Green's whole point of view of this local governing body?
I listened intently to everything I could about this whole affair, and I'm not sure where I stand on the issue of sidewalks. I don't live in any city, I'm a rural man, I like the farm life. But the debate wasn't about the luxury of city living versus private property, but turned a very suspicious corner on a logical fallacy: "We must leave the ideology of 'me' for 'we'."
Speakeasy Radio show taken off the air!
Speakeasy radio host, and former Brainerd Mayoral Candidate Guy Green along with his co-host Tony Bauer where taken off the air at 3wi Radio. The reasoning was apparently due to extremely heavy pressure from newly elected Brainerd council member Gary Scheeler, owner of Brainerd Country Power Equipment off of Highway 18, and a major advertiser on 3wi Radio.

It is the season to give thanks, starting with those Ultra-rightwing Christian (Puritan) Conservatives (the Pilgrims) for their part in securing a land for the free, and a home for the brave, whose actions did not bring discord or division among Americans (natives,) but unity. A shining city on the hill so to speak.
Is the Mayflower getting ready to sail again? Talks of exodus quietly turns to actions... Is it in search for Christian liberty, or a case of Noah's ark?
Leaders listen well!
"No oppressed people will fight, and endure, as our fathers did, without the promise of something better, than a mere change of masters." - Abraham Lincoln
People listen well!
"We live in an age of science and of abounding accumulation of material things. These did not create our Declaration. Our Declaration created them. The things of the spirit come first. Unless we cling to that, all our material prosperity, overwhelming though it may appear, will turn to a barren scepter in our grasp. If we are to maintain the great heritage which has been bequeathed to us, we must be like-minded as the fathers who created it. We must not sink into a pagan materialism. We must cultivate the reverence which they had for the things that are holy. We must follow the spiritual and moral leadership which they showed. We must keep replenished, that they may glow with a more compelling flame, the altar fires before which they worshipped." - President Calvin Coolidge
"We, the people of the state of Minnesota, grateful to God for our civil and religious liberty, and desiring to perpetuate its blessings and secure the same to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution"
