A huge thank you from us at Liberty Jounal to all who have served and defended America without question or hesitation.  Without their sacrifice, Americans would not freedom and liberty. It’s our honor to honor your great sevice to our, soon again, great country.

If you go to You Tube and watch this, you will notice the video has over 1700 likes. Of course, the establishment tool YouTube shows it with only 302 views. Typical BS from this group of Progressive America-haters.

Rand Paul wrote a letter to his Congressional colleagues urging them to not extend the provisions of the unconstitutional, 4th amendment abolishing, and improperly worded Patriot Act. As it stands he held off a push to have it extended for three years or become permanent. His letter spelled out the acts Constitutional violations and asked his colleagues to act within the confines of the American Constitution they swore to uphold. Of course, one of Rand’s colleagues proved why he is no friend of American Freedom. Here is the quote from the Constitution-trampling, Joe Lieberman. Take it away Joe!

…there will be a full-fledged debate on it. That was what is discussed and that is okay with me. I support the Patriot Act as is. I think these three provisions are very sensible. There is no record that they have compromised everybody’s rights but there is a record that they have helped protect our homeland security.

Back to the real world. Here is the video and letter from Rand Paul.

Dear Colleague:

James Otis argued against general warrants and writs of assistance that were issued by British soldiers without judicial review and that did not name the subject or items to be searched.

He condemned these general warrants as “the worst instrument[s] of arbitrary power, the most destructive of English liberty and the fundamental principles of law, that ever w[ere] found in an English law book.” Otis objected to these writs of assistance because they “placed the liberty of every man in the hands of every petty officer.” The Fourth Amendment was intended to guarantee that only judges—not soldiers or policemen—would issue warrants. Otis’ battle against warrantless searches led to our Fourth Amendment guarantee against unreasonable government intrusion. Read the rest of this entry

Constitution Day is observed each year on September 17, the day our framers, while attending the Constitutional Convention, signed the Constitution in 1787.

Prior to 2004, the holiday was known as “Citizenship Day”. In 2004, congress enacted a bill renaming the holiday “Constitution Day”. The act mandates that all publicly funded educational institutions teach the history of the American Constitution on this day.

Did your child’s school teach the constitution today or was it ignored? It’s up to parents to demand our public schools teach children what it means to be an American. Everyone should speak with their children’s teachers and principals to ensure the constitution is not being ignored.

Congressman Phil Hare (D – IL) admits he doesn’t care about the constitution. Isn’t this the problem with most politicians in office today? Not only do they not know what’s contained within the constitution, they don’t even care. It seems they only care about shredding the U.S. Constitution, in an effort to redistribute wealth and push their progressive agenda.

Back during the time of our founding, traitors to the constitution were executed for treason. Today, we can and should, simply vote these traitors out of office .  We hold all the power, at the ballot box and it is our duty as citizens to exercise this power.
