Our precious freedoms, indeed our very way of life, are under assault today by radical liberal activists.
We face a battle in which our adversaries insist that we give up our constitutional rights in exchange for an ever-growing “nanny state.” They insist on inventing a whole new definition of what it is to be an American!
Today, God-fearing Americans are being told that we don’t have the right to live our lives according to Scripture, as though America’s founding documents had never given us that guarantee. We have no choice but to stand against this increasing onslaught. Sadly, we will get only scant encouragement from even the most conservative members of our civil government.
The fact is, we must arm ourselves with vital information and take an
impassioned stand for the liberties provided by our founding documents. As John Adams, a Founder and our second President said, “Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people.”
Liberty Counsel has taken our nation’s two most foundational documents, The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States, and added Patrick Henry’s famous speech to the Virginia House of Burgesses and a special exhortation from our Founder and Chairman, Mat Staver, in the Patriot’s Handbook of American Liberty.
This valuable 72-page, perfect-bound reference book is designed to be a ready resource for patriots desiring to understand the vital content of our founding documents. It is crucially important that Americans resist today’s flood of liberal tyranny by knowing the priceless content of the laws that give shape to our constitutional republic!
A few excerpts from the Patriot’s Handbook of American Liberty...
From the Constitution of the United States:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
—First Amendment to the Constitution
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
—Tenth Amendment to the Constitution
From Patrick Henry’s Clarion Speech:
...Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it...
...Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us...
...The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our
ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the
field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What
would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased
at the price of chains and slavery?
Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!
From Mat Staver’s Essay, Does the Spirit of the American Revolution Still Live?
Founding Father Benjamin Rush, in a speech delivered in Philadelphia in 1787, the year our Constitution was adopted, proclaimed: “The American war is over: but this is far from being the case with the American Revolution. On the contrary, nothing but the first act of the great drama is closed. It remains yet to establish and perfect our new forms of government; and to prepare the principles, morals, and manners of our citizens, for these forms of government, after they are established and brought to perfection.”
...Perhaps the most egregious assault on the Constitution in our nation’s history, the passage of the bill popularly known as “ObamaCare” in March 2010, involved the collusion of the 111th Congress with White House operatives to frustrate the clearly expressed will of the American people.
...Liberty Counsel is drawing a line in the sand! We are redoubling our efforts and deepening our resolve to defend liberty and to preserve the America our Founders gave us.
