The American Century of Liberty Initiative


I have a proposal for every American. It is a way for you to personally help ensure that the American principle of individual liberty is propagated deeply into the future of our nation.

I call it the American Century of Liberty Initiative -- and it is simple.

In 1788, 12 years after the American Revolution, Patrick Henry said, "The great object is, that every man be armed." He and the other Founders knew that the power of the gun should rest forever in the hands of the people. They wanted the people strong, and the government small and weak.

So let's make sure everyone is armed.

First, in accordance with your own financial circumstances, buy a military-type rifle and a good handgun. An AR-15 can be had for less than $800. You can even build your own. A handgun is less than half that.

Shooting is not hard to learn; it comes very naturally. But if you were not weaned on guns, take a class to make sure you are safe.

Now here is the important part: 

Next, buy a military-type rifle and a good handgun for each of your children too, and train them in shooting -- and in the principles of individual liberty. Then, if your circumstances allow, start collecting for your future children's children, and then for your future children's children's children. And their spouses. Take it as far as your finances will permit.
" preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them..." - Richard Henry Lee, Additional Letters from the Federal Farmer No. 53, published in The Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788.

The goal is to reach out over the next 100 years; to affect the future of American Liberty well into the twenty-second century.

Very few opportunities come along for one person to change the world 100 years from now. This is your chance to leave a powerful legacy indeed: a future of freedom for your descendants.

The Founders of our country gave us the blueprint of liberty. Go read what they and others have said about guns and how necessary an armed populace is to the preservation of Liberty.
"Men fight for liberty and win it with hard knocks. Their children, brought up easy, let it slip away again; poor fools. And their grand-children are once more slaves." - D. H. Lawrence
Break that historical cycle of liberty and slavery. Fight against any more laws that restrict your guns.  Recognize that universal background checks are not about keeping guns out of the hands of criminals and the mentally ill.  By prohibiting private transfers, and requiring background checks, the government will quickly build an accurate database of where all the guns are, so they can confiscate them easily later.

Over the last 240 years, generations of American patriots have fought and died for your freedom. It is threatened once again.  I encourage all of you to accept this duty to preserve the blessings of liberty for your children into the next century.
