Light is not afraid of the darkness,
but darkness is afraid of the light

As I gazed at the walls of the Alamo on March 02, 2003 and celebrated with others the Texas Independence that was paid for by the blood of those heroes who choose death rather than servitude - I hungered to share their bold and laudable spirit.

The spirit of those who gave all they had is now manifestly in the Republic of Texas restoration efforts, and has endured in spite of foreign inspired deceit, lies, subjugation, and plunder. As certain as any father looking upon his child who unwaveringly takes a burden of life squarely upon the shoulders and bears it without complaint; so also he happily marvels at this growth; I likewise rejoiced as I witnessed this bold and laudable spirit of the Alamo’s fallen rise again in the Texian people as they supported the General Council of the Provisional Government of the Republic of Texas in their efforts to restore all of what is now denied us by the de facto powers. Yes, the spirit of the Alamo’s fallen remains alive and growing in the Texian Nation.

Like many overwhelmed people, I also “falsely” thought incompatible things actually co-existed within the same environment of others things that I now clearly understand are impossible to join or combine; yet, somehow those lies remain the most common belief. You can no more have unsweetened tea with sugar added than you can have complete liberty while in bondage. Just as our fallen heroes of the Alamo did; we also must likewise make and do the difficult to accept choices. We cannot quit; our Texian cause is just and must prevail. I believe what I once heard a preacher of the Gospel proclaim: “Light is not afraid of the darkness, but darkness is afraid of the light”. Carry the torch of truth or shamefully sit on the byways saying: “Prevail, I hope you win.”

The following questions are some thoughts I have about sovereignty, freedom, and liberty. It is nonsense for me or you to believe any people can be or are simultaneously free and subjects.

Sovereignty, Freedom, Liberty, and Nonsense

How and why does one proclaim: I am free while another makes their rules for behavior?

How, why, and can you be self-responsible while you are subjected by another?

How, why, and can you truly bear self-responsibly where you have no choice?

How, why, and can mankind or an individual rightly rule over an equal?

Can people contract an authority by constitution to give what they themselves do not possess?

Does one who rules others possess freedom, or has his position made him a servant to power?

Is liberty your inability to do what is humane, just, right, and should be, because others forbid?

What be liberty if not an unrestrained universal right to do anything non-injurious to others?

Freedom, and Liberty is every adult’s individual participation in self-responsibility.

How can sovereignty, freedom, and liberty evident with a foreign banner streaming over us?

How do sovereignty, freedom, and liberty endure for us where occupation and rule is foreign?

How can sovereignty, freedom, and liberty co-exist for the inhabitants with usury?

Can anyone truly love sovereignty, freedom, and liberty for themselves and not also for others?

How can any U.S. President issuing orders to the citizenry be leader of the Free World?

Regards,
Larry

"Governor, if I had foreseen the use those people (the U.S.) designed to make of their victory, there would have been no surrender at Appomattox Courthouse; no sir, not by me. Had I foreseen these results of subjugation, I would have preferred to die at Appomattox with my brave men, my sword in this right hand."
