AFTERWORD

Open Letter to Our Military
(Time to Define the True Enemy)

If the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself for battle?

I Corinthians XIV: 8

SIRS, you are doing none of the things that should be done to avert the storm which is impending.
We have petitioned – we have remonstrated – we have supplicated – we have prostrated ourselves before that great citadel on the Potomac known worldwide as the Pentagon and have implored your interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the totally corrupt Clinton administration and his minions on the Hill who have jointly and severally sold out our people and their Constitution. Collectively, they have abdicated governance under a Constitution by declaring us out of their protection and waging war against us.
Our petitions you have slighted; our remonstrances have only produced additional violence and insult as you have steadily and unceasingly waged war against innocent peoples and their once-sovereign nations about the world, wantonly murdering not only their soldiers by ignominious and inglorious use of high technology weaponry, but their women and children by the same weaponry, and enforcement of criminal embargoes of foodstuffs and medicine.
Our supplications you have disregarded; and you – our supposed military leaders – all of who took a solemn oath to defend our Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic, have spurned us with contempt as you grovel at the foot of the throne of His Mightiness, William Jefferson Clinton.
Sirs, while you have not only tolerated but have actually authorized and ordered our soldiers, sailors and airmen to take up positions in some 140 countries about the world – to become de facto the world’s cops and oppressors in the name of peacekeeping, humanitarianism and nationbuilding – you have acquiesced to and often directly assisted the enemy within – the Barbarians – to seize the seven critical levers of power and to further oppress and enslave our people. You have performed these criminal and malicious acts in the name of national security and vital interests.
Sirs, while you have curried favor of your fearful masters, eagerly sought membership in their secret societies, fawned over their weird and diverse proclivities, you have not only allowed but have aided and abetted their alien scientists in their continuous search for the absolute weapon and the ultimate destruction of all Christians and the rule of law. From development of atomic, hydrogen and neutron bombs, these evil genii have advanced to the ultimate crimes against a nation and a people – weather manipulation and the insidious spread of biological agents.
All experience has shown that people are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
Sirs, while you have sought personal glory and promotion in fraudulent combat, in vainglorious command of such one-world imperial armies as NATO, and in obtaining knighthood from the pathetic figurehead of a tiny island off the coast of Europe, our citizenry – your friends, relatives, neighbors and countrymen – have been raped and pillaged by the Barbarians within the gates.
In vain, after these most evil of deeds against us, may we now indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation?
There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free – if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending – if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained – we must fight! Sirs, I repeat, WE MUST FIGHT!
They tell us, sirs, that we are weak – unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be next week or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a federal agent shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supine, and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our Barbarians within the gates have bound us hand and foot?
Sirs, we are not weak, if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature has placed in our power. Thirty millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we once possessed, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sirs, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations; and who will raise up friends about the world to help fight the battle with us.
The battle, sirs, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sirs, we have no choice in this matter. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery!
Our chains are forged. Their clanking may be heard on the plains and in the valleys and on the very top of the mountains. Let their clanking be as the resounding notes of the trumpet, calling the courageous, the loyal and the stalwart to our just cause.
Sirs, this war is inevitable, then let it come! I repeat, sirs, let it come! Will you lead us? Or will you continue on your present course to sell out the country and its constitution and its peoples? And, to what end? The next pretty bauble? The next promotion? The next adulation by the mainline media? The next title of nobility?
In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms. Our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is totally unfit to be a ruler of a free people.
Consider carefully your ultimate decision, for the choice is yours; you alone have the power to absolve us from all allegiance to the present government and its coterie of arch-criminals and opportunists. You alone – the military – have that power to release us totally from this absolute tyranny and restore our beloved country to the Constitution which authorizes our 50 free and independent states to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and to do all other acts which independent states may of right do.
A last supplication, a last entreaty…hesitate no longer…vacillate no longer, for THE BARBARIANS ARE INSIDE THE GATES!

With apologies to Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry,
Donn de Grand Pré
a soldier… once young.…
