"Let everyone who is Godly pray to you while you may be found" (Psalm 32:6)
Editor's note: While engaged in a war against terrorism from outside, will the subversion of American Liberty come about from WITHIN? In an attempt to shore up homeland security, will Moral Issues and Matters of Liberty be SACRIFICED? Will Anti-Terrorist measures be APPLIED to Innocent Americans? Will TYRANNY have a fresh opportunity here in the land of the free? The following is the opening of our March issue of the Washington Insider Report (WIR).*
Will We Sacrifice Our Liberty at Home?
Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (2 Cor 3:17).
If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (Jn 8:36).
As for me, give me liberty, or give me death (Patrick Henry, 1775).
President Bush, in a speech broadcast live across Red China during his recent visit there, urged the Chinese people to draw upon the American ideals of liberty, faith and family to transform their nation. "Life in America shows that liberty, paired with law, is not to be feared... In a free society, diversity is not disorder. Debate is not strife. And dissent is not revolution. A free society trusts its citizens to seek greatness in themselves and their country," he said.
Yet, as the President expounded upon American liberty abroad, Liberty faces new challenges at home. The September 2001 terrorist attacks violently awakened America to the earnestness of a worldwide Islamist Jihad being waged against our nation. President Bushís all-out "War on Terrorism" was an appropriate and necessary response. But in Washingtonís rush to engage the enemy and to shore up homeland security, moral issues and matters of liberty (just as important as our nationís physical security) have taken a backseat. Freedom watchers from both ends of the political spectrum are deeply concerned that in their effort to make America secure our leaders ironically could help achieve what the Islamist terrorists cannot: the subversion of American Liberty. Cultural Marxists, who for decades have labored to overthrow America from within, are taking advantage of the moment to do to the foundations of American liberty what the Islamist terrorists did to the World Trade Center.
A decade from now, Americans may wake up to realize that the things most worth saving in our nation (true religion, true civil liberty, the "unalienable rights" of the Declaration and the enumerated liberties in the Bill of Rights) were lost while we focused on the war effort...
