John Adams considered the American Revolution and the American Revolutionary War as two separate things. The former was won in the hearts and minds of the American people before the latter began. The latter was a bloody eight year struggle necessary to convince the British. The war ended, but the American Revolution is ongoing and will continue as long as it continues in the hearts and minds of the American people.
Why do the Department of Homeland Security and FEMA teach the police that the Founding Fathers were terrorists? They also teach them that YOU are a terrorist threat, as long as the American Revolution continues to live in your heart. Before they can fully roll out their one-world government they must destroy the American economy, and end American sovereignty, and to do that they must crush the American Revolution. Now you know why our U.N.-Globalist-Banker-Controlled Occupied Puppet Government is waging war against the American people. Now you know why they want your guns! There is still a war on for the hearts and minds of the American people.
Despite what you learned in the government-run public schools, the American Revolution was not started over taxation without representation. It began over the confiscation of powder and ball. THAT is where our Forefathers drew the line. They knew that the difference between free men and slaves is the right to keep and bear arms.
On April 19, 1775, British General Thomas Gage, who King George II had appointed Royal Governor of Massachusetts putting the colonies under martial law, sent Col. Frances Smith from Boston toward Lexington and Concord, where they were to confiscate the Americans’ powder and ball, and arrest John Hancock and John Adams to take them to England where they would be tried and hanged for treason. General Gage had already made one successful raid on the colonists’ powder storage, and the Americans were determined that it would not happen again. They knew the raid to confiscate their munitions was coming, but they didn’t know when, so they had set up a warning system to alert the colonists when General Gage made his move. This was the day of the famous ride of Paul Revere and the shot heard round the world. The British took the worst of it that day, but losses were heavy on the American side as well.
The next day, after the bloody battle of April 19, 1775, John Adams rode through the countryside to view the carnage that had taken place the day before. Some years later he wrote the following:
“Posterity! You will never know how much it cost the present generation to preserve your freedom! I hope you will make good use of it! If you do not, I shall repent it in Heaven that I ever took half the pains to preserve it!” John Adams – April 26, 1777
Will your progeny grow up to be free men and women or slaves?
That’s up to you! We are living history today. Posterity will look back on the events taking place today and will judge our generation for the actions we take–or fail to take–to preserve their freedom. When your grandchildren ask you what you did during the American Revolution will you hold your head high? Or hang your head low?
The American Revolution began when the government came for the powder and ball of our forefathers. It was where they drew the line.
Where do you draw the line?
