Because We Started Liberty

Because We Started Liberty

Because We Started Liberty

Because of our Founder’s desire for liberty, slavery came here to die. A bold statement? Perhaps. The British owned slaves. We owned slaves. But when our country began with the premise that “All Men are Created Equal”, and the “Don’t Tread on Me” notification was sent to the King of England, less than a century later, slavery was abolished. After thousands of years of slavery running absolutely unchecked with all kinds of people owning all other kinds of other people, thousands of years after, in less than a century, slavery was abolished in this country.

John and Andy provided a history lesson to correct an incident involving a teacher’s lack of historical knowledge of the Gadsden flag. They rectified misconceptions, shed light on the significance of “Don’t Tread on Me!” and highlighted how accurate historical understanding is needed in today’s educational institutions. Take a listen as John and Andy connect the dots from the past to the present.

Rush To Reason with John Rush & Andy Peth

“But can I say really quick why I tied it into the foundations of our country? Because these educators, when they attack the Tea Party, they’re not really attacking the Tea Party or the right-wing. What they’re attacking is the foundations of this country. Because the Tea Party loves the foundations of this country. And so what their response from the left is the foundations of this country were racist. Okay. And therefore, your flag, which represents, let’s face it, the Tea Party, obviously because of what they’re drawing on your flag is racist because the Tea Party loves the foundations of this country, which were racist. And what I’m saying is the foundations of this country were actually common to the entire world at that time and led us out of that world to where there is no slavery.” – Andy Peth

“It’s the one thing the liberals always forget is the things that this country has done through its Judeo-Christian roots and capitalism along with it, which I know everybody [The political Left] wants to kill. … Between those two things is why the whole world is lifted up and in better shape today than it was even a hundred years ago.” – John Rush

The Soros Agenda

The Soros Agenda

The Soros Agenda

The Soros agenda is going right to the heart, to the core of the United States, and a lot of average Americans may know the Soros name but have no idea what he’s doing inside the US legal system. “And he [George Soros]  says that the US. Constitution, which was written by our founding fathers, well, they were naive. Our founding fathers were naive. But this was written more than 200 years ago. We have learned that when it comes to human affairs, tools can be manipulated. … So he actually had written about how he would rephrase the Constitution, the Bill of Rights. He considers himself a philosopher, unrecognized but considers himself a philosopher. And he said that he always wanted to be the conscious of the world.” ~ Rachel Ehrenfeld

“I don’t know that I can think of anyone else on planet Earth right now more evil and that has done more damage to this country than George Soros.” ~ John Rush

“Soros is destroying [the US] from the inside out, not the outside in.”
~ John Rush

Dr. Rachel Ehrenfeld, author of The Soros Agenda, is the Founder and President of the New York-based American Center for Democracy and the Economic Warfare Institute.  She has more than 1,500 publications, five books, and many academic and policy papers. She was published by the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Forbes, Newsweek, FOX News, CNN, Los Angeles Times, Guardian, Herald Tribune, Huffington Post, New York Sun, and many others. She obtained her Ph.D. in Criminology from the Hebrew University School of Law in Jerusalem, Israel. 

Dr. Ehrenfeld successfully challenged a lawsuit launched by a Saudi financier of al Qaeda in the UK as a weapon to silence her and others from exposing him and his ilk.  Dr. Ehrenfeld’s initiative and efforts led to the passage of New York State’s anti-libel tourism, aka “Rachel’s Law, ” and the SPEECH Act, signed into law by President Obama in August 2010. These laws protect American writers and publishers in print and on the Internet from the enforcement of foreign libel judgments in the US.  

Our Founding Patriots Blessed Us Greater than Our Appreciation of Them

Our Founding Patriots Blessed Us Greater than Our Appreciation of Them

In a rush to destroy our history, we often overlook the brilliant men who crafted our Declaration of Independence in 1776 with logic and reason rather than emotion and anger. 

In 1787, all focus was on future generations, with a brand-new document, The United States Constitution. It is now the longest active governing document globally. When the Founding Fathers wrote this, they recognized they didn’t give us a perfect government but hoped the people would continue to “form a more perfect union.” The Constitution is not a breathing document that follows changes in human development but is a solid foundation constraining the worst tendencies of humans to enslave people through government. Even more so today, the relevancy of their thoughts and writings confirms the immutable agelessness of human nature and the brilliance contained in the Constitution and Declaration of Independence.

May God Shed His Grace on Thee


God did align the stars to give us 56 white men to represent all Americans. Our Founding Fathers gambled with “their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor” but felt it was worth it to create a unique place on earth where men governed themselves and individual liberty was the order of the day. They were brilliant because they recognized man’s imperfection, and they included themselves. Our Founding Fathers correctly understood the inherent nature of humans. 

Having a distrust of government they realized its tendency to evolve into a bureaucratic master if citizens surrendered their independence. They understood that political and economic freedoms are the twin freedoms and that they are inextricably intertwined. We either preserve both or lose both; preservation is our responsibility. If we fail to stand up to the forces intent on subjugating all people to the rule of man instead of the rule of law, we will enter darkness long before we take our last breath.

In the book, The Lives of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence by B. J. Lossing, he writes about how nine died fighting or from hardship, twelve had their homes pillaged and destroyed by the British, five were captured and tortured before dying, two lost sons, another had two sons captured, and others lost wives and fortunes.  They risked it all and paid dearly for our liberties.

We Have a Choice

Every day and in every action, we make choices contributing to our future freedom or eventually subjection. If we honor our founders and predecessors, we’ll breathe our last breath as a free person, confident we repaid the favor given to us. It is up to each of us to contribute to the freedom of future generations rather than squander our inheritance.
