The Ghost From Valley Forge

“A Visitor From the Past” by Thelen Paulk

I had a dream the other night I didn’t understand,
A figure walking through the mist, with flintlock in his hand.
His clothes were torn and dirty, as he stood there by my bed,
He took off his three-cornered hat, and speaking low he said:

We fought a revolution to secure our liberty,
We wrote the Constitution, as a shield from tyranny.
For future generations, this legacy we gave,
In this, the land of the free and home of the brave.

The freedom we secured for you, we hoped you’d always keep,
But tyrants labored endlessly while your parents were asleep.
Your freedom gone – your courage lost – you’re no more than a slave,
In this, the land of the free and the home of the brave.

You buy permits to travel, and permits to own a gun,
Permits to start a business, or to build a place for one.
On land that you believe you own, you pay a yearly rent,
Although you have no voice in choosing how the money’s spent.

Your children must attend a school that doesn’t educate,
Your moral values can’t be taught, according to the state.
You read about the current “news” in a very biased press,
You pay a tax you do not owe, to please the IRS.

Your money is no longer made of silver or of gold,
You trade your wealth for paper, so life can be controlled.
You pay for crimes that make our Nation turn from God to shame,
You’ve taken Satin’s number, as you’ve traded in your name.

You’ve given government control to those who do you harm,
So they can padlock churches, and steal the family farm.
And keep our country deep in debt, put men of God in jail,
Harass your fellow countryman while corrupted courts prevail.

Your public servants don’t uphold the solemn oath they’re sworn,
Your daughters visit doctors so children won’t be born.
Your leaders ship artillery and guns to foreign shores,
And send your sons to slaughter, fighting other people’s wars.

Can you regain your Freedom for which we fought and died?
Or don’t you have the courage, or the faith to stand with pride?
Are there no more values for which you’ll fight to save?
Or do you wish your children live in fear and be a slave?
Sons of the Republic, arise and take a stand!
Defend the Constitution, the Supreme Law of the Land!
Preserve our Republic, and each God-given right!
And pray to God to keep the torch of freedom burning bright!

As I awoke he vanished, in the mist from whence he came,
His words were true, we are not free, and we have ourselves to blame.
For even now as tyrants trample each God-given right,
We only watch and tremble — too afraid to stand and fight.

If he stood by your bedside in a dream while you’re asleep,
And wonder what remains of your right he fought to keep.
What would be your answer if he called out from the grave?
Is this still the land of the free and home of the brave?

    Get me alone in a room with the bernak, diamon, moynaham, timmah and mr. blank and I will do ask for the strength from ALL do to do what is good and right. From that day on I would know I had a purpose.

    Otherwise I believe all I can do is buy Silver.

    Maybe those who have lived and died in liberty will show me dreams of what else I can do.

    I pray.

    The Liberty Tree has needed watering for a long long time…. deep in your heart you know this is true …. but it isn’t time yet…. however, the time will come, it shall come when the slaves, the sheepeople, are cold and hungry…. and then they will finally see and feel the call…
    For the rest of us who already see the situation for what it is and feel the call … work within the system…. be patient…. be the renegade of the system…. stay legal or as legal as you can for there are now so many laws you know ya got to be breaking at least one of theml.
    Preserve your wealth… remove the money from the banks …. sell off all you can and convert the paper and the digits into real thinks of value… Gold, Silver, Oil, Foreign land that has less than 5% of the taxes we have in our Olligarchy…Aluminum, Copper, etc
    I’m looking for others who would like to escape the turmoil… enjoy life and be ready for the future…. Escape slavery… and be ready for change.

    Never fret if the value of the real thing in dollars goes down…. it shall be but a short time before it shall rise and go up further than when you bought. Until there is interest rates above real inflation and there is no money creation from nothing ,,,,over time all prices shall go up.
    And once the full blown currency crisis passes… be the person who has the capital to help rebuild…. Its the patriotic thing and a once in a lifetime chance to make multigenerational wealth.
