The Birth Of New Freedom

The birth of The Declaration of Independence came on June 11, 1776 after a committee of five men were commissioned by Congress to draft the official document announcing the declaration of independence of the Thirteen Colonies from Great Britain.

The "Committee of Five" included:

  1. John Adams, the first Vice President of the United States later became the second President of the United States.
  2. Roger Sherman, the man who became the first Mayor of New Haven, Connecticut.
  3. Robert Livingston, a politician and American lawyer who became known as "The Chancellor" for his length of time in the position from 1777 to 1801.
  4. Benjamin Franklin, who was most famously known for his advancements in the study of electricity.
  5. Thomas Jefferson, a politician who held many political positions including the third President of the United States.

On July 4th, 1776 in the Assembly Room of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 56 delegated members put pen to paper as they signed the historic Declaration of Independence.

Our Current Economic Turmoil Was Prophesied Hundreds Of Years In The Past

It has been recorded, with the documentation of conversations between himself and his son Francis Lightfoot Lee, that Richard Henry Lee made his distaste in the intentions and actions of Alexander Hamilton well known, referring to Hamilton as "that bastard". Lee blamed Hamilton for the dawn of a government the he claimed would self implode causing fundamental destruction, the aftermath of which he thought would prove to be worse that the oppressive authority from which the Founding Fathers had originally intended to deliver us from.

“Centralized power as well as centralized money systems will lead to the complete corruption of any country,”

- Richard Henry Lee

The eeriness of this statement is palpable with how accurate his premonitions were at hitting it's mark.

“When the Fourth Amendment was written there was a lot of debate about the proper use of warrants, probable cause and limiting the power of the government. These fools have altered our restrictions on federal government to a point where it can pretty much go where it wants and do what it wants."

- Tom Alston, contributing editor to the first issue of The Hard Truth Magazine


Financial Crisis: Slaves of Bankers

Money Is The Root Of All Evil

Money is what makes the world go round as well as being the "root of all evil". Greed, evidenced by the abuse of political power, led to political leaders making devastatingly destructive decisions.

Just as any average citizen would be tempted to do, when an offer of financial assistance or a "bail-out" is the only way out, our nation's debt was solicited with an offer to relieve financial strain. This proved to be extremely detrimental to the economy as it caused the debt to spiral wildly out of control. The result of these ill financial decisions essentially released our nation from it's own independent ruling, giving away control to the foreign entities in a wolf in sheeps clothing type fashion just as Richard Henry Lee had predicted.

Government Crosses Unethical Boundaries

Best selling author John Truman Wolfe wrote a book called Crisis By Design in which he, in a thoroughly investigative way, spelled out exactly how our nation was losing it's own governing power. Years later, Wolfe follows up the popular expose with an article titled The Financial Crisis Act 3.

Already indebted, corruption spawns, diminishing rights

The United States government has slowly but surely began to diminish our rights and freedoms set forth in historical founding documents.

Citizens wishing to travel by air in the United States have been noticing the ever increasing unethical oversteps of the boundaries made by our government regarding the personal rights and freedoms defined within the Bill Of Rights.

The authority given to TSA agents are becoming more and more obscenely exploited. The National Security Agency (NSA) had the capability of removing all privacy from conversations over the telephone when they were allowed the ability to tap into the phone line of any American citizen. The NSA went another step further in robbing American citizens of their privacy with the creation of PRISM, a program designed to gather data with the line of direct access to the servers of:

  • Google
  • Yahoo
  • Microsoft
  • Facebook
  • AOL
  • Skype
  • YouTube
  • Apple
  • PalTalk

On June 6th, 2013, many Americans were astonished when The Washington Post blew this top secret monitoring program out the water by reporting in an article that PRISM had been in effect since 2007.

Unique Protest Of Violations Of Our 4th Amendment Rights

"Now there's a way to protest those intrusive TSA X-ray scanners without saying a word. 4th Amendment Metallic ink-printed undershirts and underwear."

From the birth of an idea to the demolishment of it's dream, our political leaders have successfully begun to run our country into the ground. Though the Founding Fathers' intentions were described publicly to be honestly positive, though as one man guessed, the greed developed from a man's sense of governing power has began to poison not only our economy but our way of life.

      It's so ironic how Lee predicted that things like this would happened. At least we know of one politician who was at once honest about the effects of their actions... well, to a certain extent I suppose. You can't exactly trust everything they say anymore since they'll more likely that not tell you what you want to hear at the moment so that you'll favorably upon them!

      Yes, the 4th amendment was one of those designed to go out with the attack of 9/11.

      With 2010, they started on women's, union's and voting rights.

      Elect them again, and we are toast.
