Return to Honor and Save The American Republic


One of many in the Hero Generation

This Veteran’s Day we honor those who have served our country.  I am asking everyone to serve our country.  You don’t have to be in the military to sacrifice for our nation.  The best thing you can do is return to living an honorable life.  Pay for what you use.  Work for what you need.  Stop taking from government programs, and stop asking for new ones to be put in place.  Live your life in a way that helps you see beyond your personal desires and expect more from yourself in terms of charity.  Give to those in need.  The more we give, the less the government will be needed.   In the words of Winston Churchill, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”  If we want to maintain our republic in this country, we must be responsible, charitable, and honorable.  

As a follow-up to the last post, it is important to understand how hyper-inflation could affect our country.  We must recognize that tough times are ahead.  We can drag this on, or have some pain for a short time by returning to proper principles.  Here is the link to the article The National Inflation Association (click here for the pdf) put out on food prices if we begin to experience hyper-inflation.  This article also has some excellent information on how the DOW Jones compares with Gold prices.   

The best way to avoid some of the pain is to store for the days ahead and give where we can.   Create ways to save, or better yet, produce.  My neighbors recently got bee hives.  They are doing their part in becoming more self-reliant.  One hive can produce up to 50 lbs of honey per year.  Another neighbor just installed solar tubing to heat the water for the radiant system in his home.  My husband’s company CRS Mechanical did the installation.  Not only are you using renewable energy, but you are self-reliant and creating liberty for yourself and your family.  Geo-thermal heating and cooling is another way to use the energy from the ground to help create less dependence on the grid.  Cleve has been excited about the possibility of creating real liberty through alternative energy sources.  

We have asked much of those in the armed forces, but it is time to ask more from ourselves.  I have many nephews currently serving in the military, and the one pictured above, Jonathon, was just shipped to Iraq.  If we can become a people who are educated, prepared, and demand that our country be put back on the right track in all aspects, we will be able to bring these men and women home to their families.   

I believe in the words of Thomas Jefferson when he said, “Peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations – entangling alliances with none.”   

There is one person that seems to have the most liberty-minded thinking in Washington.  Please listen to the words of Congressman Ron Paul:

Return to honor, and FREEDOM CAN WIN!

Who is On Our Side…Newt Gingrich or Ron Paul?

As someone who teaches regularly the Cycles of  History, I am familiar with Alvin Toffler’s The Third Wave.  I do not believe Mr. Toffler has the right idea on our government policy, but he is correct in his teaching of the Information Age.  In political thinking, we part ways.  However, we need to look at the different ideologies and recognize that claiming to be a Republican, or a Conservative will not be enough.   These first videos are lengthy, but I ask that you take the time to watch them all.  We must become an informed society, not one that listens to just sound bites and makes decisions.

This is from the John Birch Society.  They’ve had it right for a long time, but they began in 1958, after a global institutional founding (Spring) had occurred in our country.  This time in the cycles makes it difficult to change society.  But now that we are in a Fourth Turning, change comes quickly.  People will gravitate to societies such as these, and unite under common goals. 

Learn who one of the “leaders” of the conservative movement is, and why he is not really a conservative at all.

These recordings are not as good as the original, but I could post them here.  If you would like to watch the entire clip uninterrupted, and with the sound matching the video, please visit 

Do not be fooled by people who hold up the Founding Fathers in speeches and vote against our founding principles.  Do not let the words pull you into their political dichotomy.  Watch them.  Watch how they vote.  Newt Gingrich is a party guy.  He threw his support to a Republican in the New York race, who then threw her support to the Democrat over the independent, when she dropped out of the race. 

Newt Gingrich supports Bob Bennett in the Senate race for Utah.  Look at his voting record.  Bennett voted against the health care bill, but has one of his own he’d like to put forward.  It’s not his right as a Senator to promote health care programs on a federal level.  This is a state right.

It will be important to truly “get to know” candidates on every level.  Choose good people right from the beginning.  Do you have any say over the people who run for Senate on the Republican ticket?  Maybe.  That depends on your role.  We are a Republic.  We choose individuals to represent us.  It starts right in your neighborhood.  On March 23, 2010, for Utahns, your duty as a citizen begins.  Attend your local caucus and vote in the representatives from your area that are the most informed, the most willing to serve, and the most willing to elect candidates that will adhere to the Constitution of the United States, and the principles found in The 5,000 Year Leap.  If you would like help connecting with other like-minded individuals, go to and find a group near you.  If you are in a very rural area, we can help you set up your own STAR Forum group as well.  Just contact us and we’ll get you started.

Now watch the next video.  It’s very short.  Only 5 minutes, and you will understand what we are looking for in statesmen.  Ron Paul has consistently voted according to the Constitution, not party lines.   This video describes likely events that have been predicted by The Fourth Turning, and many economists.  Special thanks to Andy Whitehead, a member of our group, for sending this in.  Educate yourself, help educate others, prepare for the worst, and hope for the best.  We are a great nation that will overcome it’s challenges when we continually stick to our principles.

Hyperinflation Nation – HR 1207

These three videos may be the most important videos you see.  It is time to become informed.  We cannot as a society continue to put our heads in the sand regarding our country’s financial policies.  Please take the time to watch all three videos.  This is not some conspiracy theory.  Ask anyone who lived in Germany during the Weimar republic.

HR 1207 — The Federal Reserve

This audio explains how out of control the Federal Reserve really is.  Remember, the Federal Reserve is NOT FEDERAL.  This is a private bank, playing with your money.  The Federal Reserve is no more federal than is Federal Express.  We must take back control.  Republicans, Democrats, and Libertarians unite for freedom.  (The original video posted here was removed.  It was audio of King World news interview.  I’m not sure why, it was a great interview with Alan Grayson.  So instead I am posting his own video with his discussion with Ben Bernanke)
