The main affliction that America has today is that we have had 200 years of being convinced that we are totally unable to make it on our individual, singular person, by our self, own merits and abilities!
If you ever walked up to one of the men who fought under Washington and called him a US CITIZEN you would probably have left leave in a gunny sack. That man would have been a Virginian, North Carolinian, Texan, etc and damm proud of it. It took a well orchestrated, well written lawyer talking piece of paper to transmute a proud American from North Carolina into a US CITIZEN so he could be subjugated and made to enjoy it.
If we are to succeed int the days to come we all have to give Lincoln back his US CITIZEN and put on our Texan colours with the pride of our forefathers. To wear that Alabama Red shirt in pride on our black land farms where the word Monsanto is a curse word not a brand.
I served this nation for 27 years as a soldier. I am a North Carolinian, not a US CITIZEN if you please.
North Carolina is a piece of land that shares a border with South Carolina, Virginia, and Tennessee. The other end is Atlantic Ocean. I have never seen a place called the US where I would hang my hat let alone allow my family to live.
We are kept slaves, and when prodded we stand up and sing for our supper till the check arrives. Then we take off a few days to be patriots. It is not our choice it is our lot.
When we awaken to that and start getting together to plan our freedom instead of our capture, we will become free overnight.
When we begin to see ourselves as free men and women instead of citizens, we will be free again like our fore fathers intended.
