• John Adams on fear mongering…

    Fear is the foundation of most governments; but it is so sordid and brutal a passion, and renders men in whose breasts it predominates so stupid and miserable, that Americans will not be likely to approve of any political institution which is founded on it.

    John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
  • John Adams on slavery…

    Every measure of prudence, therefore, ought to be assumed for the eventual total extirpation of slavery from the United States…. I have, throughout my whole life, held the practice of slavery in… abhorrence.

    John Adams, letter to Evans, June 8, 1819
  • John Adams on the Revolution…

    But what do we mean by the American Revolution? Do we mean the American war? The Revolution was effected before the war commenced. The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people; a change in their religious sentiments, of their duties and obligations…This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people was the real American Revolution.

    John Adams, letter to H. Niles, February 13, 1818

    John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776

    John Adams, Thoughts on Government, 1776
  • John Adams on property and marriage…

    As long as Property exists, it will accumulate in Individuals and Families. As long as Marriage exists, Knowledge, Property and Influence will accumulate in Families.

    John Adams, letter to Thomas Jefferson, July 16, 1814
  • Just getting everything set up!

    I know my Twitter Peeps are stopping by to see what’s going on. In the midst of everything else, I’m working toward getting this set up. Check back as I will being to post articles in the near future.

    Until then, stand up America. Enough is enough. Let’s demand that the government respect our personal rights and our states rights. The only way to stem the tide is to take action. Good people need to stand firm in their convictions. Those that feel led need to run for local office and work their way up the ladder.
