IT'S ALL FOR MY SECURITY
A satirical poem
© June 16, 2008 by G. Edward Griffin

I woke up Sunday morning (Father’s Day) with a silly limerick running through my head. It was a satirical comment on how Boobus Amricanus is so willing to give up liberty in return for the false hope of security against terrorism. I couldn’t get it out of my head so, after dinner, I began to play with the words and eventually produced a first draft. Because satire often communicates an idea more forcefully than dull documentation and logical argument, I am publishing it to see if it has any such utility. I hope you will find it useful with your friends who don’t yet get it. 

It’s more than mortal man can bear.
Those terrorists are everywhere:
on land and sea and in the air.
Network TV bill of fare
daily warns us to prepare
for bugs and bombs and poison air
and other things enough to scare
the bravest man to deep despair.

They hate our freedom so we’re told,
our way of life so uncontrolled,
our rich, our poor, our young, our old.
I guess their hatred just takes hold
and burrows in and makes them bold
enough to kill and spend their gold
and set in motion plans untold
to get us ALL, … or so we’re told.

Seems strange to me they don’t resent
the other guys who represent
a way of life with free consent
or those who are benevolent.
The only ones they seem intent
to devastate to great extent
are those whos aero-planes were sent
to bomb their homes with such torment.

Never mind, the war will stay.
We’re going to fight this all the way.
But there’s a price we have to pay
to keep the enemy at bay.
Let our leaders take away
our lives and liberty TODAY,
and then our fears will go away
that they’ll be lost some future day.

My phone is tapped. My mail is read.
They know the thoughts inside my head.
The money I deposited
is now reported to the Fed.
They chip my hand, dispense my bread.
I think they watch me go to bed.
I don’t object. I’m glad instead
to be controlled until I’m dead.

CHORUS
And so I very happily
let them take my liberty.
No matter what they do to me,
it’s all for my security.
     You see, you see, you see?
I’m just as glad as I can be
to let them take my liberty.
No matter what they do to me,
it’s all for my security.

FROM OUR READERS

THE RON PAUL REVOLUTION MUST BE TRANSFORMED
A slow down in enthusiasm is to be expected after a hard push to elect the right man has been defeated by the machinery of society that has been taken over by a handful of rebels against the constitution. But let me make a few observations concerning the post Ron Paul Campaign:

1. This is what happens when all the energy of a movement is focused on an individual instead of the principles behind the individual.

2. The shut down of enthusiasm shows that most people are still not capable of figuring out the severity of our predicament in the world.

3. For instance, lawful constitutional government will not return to American soil by the use of democracy or elections for that was the instrument that destroyed lawful constitutional government to start with. Therefore why would we hope in the system that corrupted our nation? Democracy was hated by all the founding fathers for this very reason.

4. The United States of America and every state in the union was constituted upon the foundation of the Principles of Property. And I bet very few of the Ron Paul supporters can tell you what those principles are. They are found in the First and Second Treatise of Government by John Locke, written in 1689. Thomas Jefferson said that all American Liberty is based upon the work of John Locke and Algernon Sidney.

5. The election of Ron Paul would not have returned lawful government to America. It would have been a small step in the right direction but most things would have remained the same even with Ron Paul as President. 6. Ron Paul's own words is to "spread the message."

7. How many of us can really tell someone what Ron Paul's message was? Most will say "get out of Iraq, sound money, non-intervention, get rid of the IRS, get rid of the Federal Reserve." All good stuff but not much real substance regarding why, and how. The American people were not able to receive his message. They were programmed to reject his message. The people of America must be reprogrammed with the truth in order to restore real lawful government to this land.

8. Ron Paul nor any other presidential candidate past, present or future can do that. The people must do that!

9. Let's be honest, Ron Paul made a lot of mistakes in his campaign and he was just a good candidate but not perfect.

10. So what will return lawful government to this land? You will, I will, all of us together will. It is God's will that we live free in a lawfully constructed and maintained government, even in these last days. Avoid all that say otherwise for they know not the God of our fathers.

11. The whole purpose of Ron Paul running for office was not to win but to start a movement based upon the principles of property that will continue in all of us long after he has left the stage.

12. Further, Ron Paul ran for President to form a nation wide network which can elect other candidates reflecting the same Principles of Property and respond to other problems.

13. Therefore, stay together locally to encourage one another and teach your neighbors about liberty and stay on line in a network with other Ron Paul Meetups so we will be ready for anything.

That is why we at the Silver Eagle Taphouse Ron Paul Meetup are developing a course called the One Hour Patriot to be taught to one and all who come to our Meetup group. It will be precise, short, and comprehensive with the aim to de-brainwash the American slave and restore them to the status of sovereign person knowing the extent of their liberties and responsibilities in this world. This course will debut for the first time at the Austin - San Antonio FREEDOM TOUR at the Taphouse. True Liberty comes when it is perceived in the minds of the people. And it simply is not perceived in the mind of Americans today. It will not return unless those of us who know what these principles are teach them to millions. This is a big job and we cannot do it alone. We need each other but this effort is a lot more fun and exciting than watching someone else run for president and hoping against better judgment that tyrants will abandon their strangle hold on America merely because we win an election.

Therefore, encourage your membership to stay together and hold classes on the Principles of Property so that the law will return to the courts, a limitation of power and authority returns to congress and the monarchy is destroyed in the executive branch.  
Sincerely,
Ron Avery

            ========================================

TIME FOR VANS AND LOUD SPEAKERS IN THE STREETS?
Hello Mr. Griffin.
Thank you for your kind words and encouragement. I am proud to be a Freedom Force member, and have enjoyed reading, signing, and sharing "The Creed of Freedom" with friends and family.

Encouraging is Freedom Force and the efforts I see, but very real and scary is our Nation's situation for both our families and friends. If what I think is really happening, I feel the alert mode needs to be moved up. However, maybe I need to be reigned in a bit. Have I lost my mind in the maze of conspiracy literature and facts that seem to clearly point to events that will trigger the calling of marshal-law very soon?

Based on my research, the plan to usurp America is real. In my book 'A Crisis in America' I pose the question: "What if we had a terrorist attack but many times worse than 911 today?" Wouldn't America, especially with our fragile economy be in big trouble; and we can be sure a nuclear blast of any kind will have FEMA at our front doors.

If something like this did happen right out of the blue, like 911, most of us are not prepared, it would be devastating to say the least; triggering the start of The New World Order. Prepare your families my good citizens, I worry sincerely for you and your wives and children, Think of how to protect them. Tomorrow morning we could all wake up to this scenario.

Are we not all one gas tank away from being stranded? Think for a minute if all the gas pumps were turned off right now. How much gas do you have and where will you get your next tank? How will you get around, and where will you go? I say this because it happened to me the other day. I pulled in to a station and the computer was shut down. It was certainly a rude awakening of how dependent we are on our government and state.

I see us putting out this critical information about the plan to doom our
beloved nation to a fascist state or worse, but I do not sense the same
urgency in many of the voices and action of people around the planet or even in Freedom Force to meet the damnation they have planned for us. Can someone kindly please clear things up for me? Shouldn't we be driving vans up and down streets with huge blow horns screaming the 'reds are coming' or something, while handing out materials to educate people?
Stephen

GEG replies:

Hello Stephen.
I agree with your assessment of the pending crisis and I certainly sympathize with your anxiety over the fact that few of our friends are willing to face up to the reality of it. Yet, I am not convinced that driving vans around town with loudspeakers proclaiming the truth would make much difference. In fact, it could make matters worse, because most people would think we were a bunch of loonies. The problem is that the general population cannot accept the truth even when spoken iover loudspeakers, because it runs counter to their daily programming through the mass media.

Does that mean we must just sit idly by and wait for Armageddon? Not at all. There is much that can be done in spite of the media blockade. In my view, the most effective way to awaken our fellow citizens is through a non-emotional, well-documented educational program presented in a tasteful and professional manner. Bull horns and photocopied handbills with every other word highlighted and underlined is NOT the way to win converts. Thoughtful people (and many not so thoughtful) are repelled by that, and the fact that truth might be delivered therein makes no difference. Our job is not so much to deliver truth as it is to convince people that what we deliver IS truth. The method is just as important as the message.

That is why we at the Reality Zone work hard to make sure our books, CDs and DVDs are in good taste and professionally presented. That is why we don't send out warnings in response to every rumor of immediate crisis. That is why we question every story that seemingly supports our position but lacks a reliable source. That is why we refuse to exaggerate our facts and make sure that everything we say can be documented from the public record. If we wish people to accept us as reliable, then we must BE reliable.

If you are looking for a good way to break the media barrier, I urge you to participate in Project Red Pill, a program that enables us to deliver hundreds of thousands of DVDs on important topics to friends, neighbors, and even total strangers. We are just now launching this project, and we need volunteers to serve as Red Pill Team Captains. To learn more about this program, click here.

And Stephen responds:

Dear Mr. Griffin,
Thank you. I play devil's advocate in hopes to shake out my own cob webs, so forgive me for my un-conventional manner. And thank you for that clarity, as we would not want to drive around in vans yelling insanely; of course only a metaphor I employ to equal the madness of our situation.

And so we agree that only through educating the masses by way of rational and reasonable principles can we move our message and our Creed of Freedom, making it mainstream by such reason and truth - a bold, a very bold and honest platform indeed. Something Americans are truly starved for.

Sincere thanks for answering my question. I will do my best to
participate in "Project Red pill."

       NEWEST ARRIVALS

ARE VACCINES SAFE?
 A 3-hour seminar that answers with a resounding NO.
This seminar was conducted by Mary Tocco, an educator on natural health with special expertise in the side effects of vaccines. Her presentation has been seen by over 100,000 people and voted by viewers across the country as #1 on this topic. She has packed 27 years of personal research into just three hours, and you will be glued to your TV screen every minute of the way. Drawing on scientific documents from government agencies and university laboratories, she identifies the toxic components of vaccines, how they are related to autism and other childhood disorders, how vaccines interfere with the development of a normal immune system, and how infectious childhood diseases had all but disappeared BEFORE vaccines were introduced as a result of improved sanitation and nutrition. Protect your children from this fraud. Get the facts before you make the vaccine decision. (More)

THE FUTURE OF FOOD:
The Disturbing Truth about Genetically Modified Foods.

This documentary is an investigation into unlabeled, genetically engineered foods that have quietly filled our grocery stores for the past decade. It gives voice to farmers who are under attack by the corporations that have created this technology. It shows the grim health implications for an unsus-pecting population and reveals how multinational corporations are seeking to control the world's food system. (More)

WASHINGTON YOU'RE FIRED!
This documentary focuses on the growing police state in America and shows how the Bill of Rights and the Constitution literally have been cancelled by recent legislation and executive orders. With the next crisis, the President will have power to confiscate all private property including homes, cars, and money; all commercial property; all means of transportation; and can round us up into work brigades. Anyone who criticizes can be imprisoned without legal defense. Presidents now have more dictatorial power than King George had when Americans fought the Revolutionary War to rid themselves of him. This program includes a plan for restoring the Constitution without armed revolution. (More)

STALIN, MAN OF STEEL. This History Channel documentary is more than just a biography of one of the world’s most notorious dictators and mass killers. It shows how, in spite of incredible crimes against his own people, Stalin was hero worshiped by them. This was possible because the masses were easily moved in time of crisis into viewing him as the embodiment of their nation, and loyalty to country became blurred with loyalty to leader. Vital lessons for today. (More)

UN-COUNTED
The New Math of American Elections
This documentary shows how the elections of 2004 and 2006 were stolen and who did it. This is not a conspiracy theory. It’s the real thing! The people who perpetrated this fraud remain in place to do the same thing in 2008 – and every election thereafter. This has nothing to do with Republicans vs. Democrats. It is about controlling the electoral process so that the common citizen will never be able to break the grip of those who control both major parties. This grip CAN be broken, but only if more Americans become aware that it exists. That’s where you come in. Acquire this video and show it to your friends. (More)

STOP AMERICA'S #1 KILLER!
Vitamin C Deficiency Is the Origin of ALL Heart Disease.
Yes, sub-clinical scurvy, caused by a lack of Vitamin C, is the origin of all heart and coronary disease. Does that mean everyone can be protected simply by taking extra Vitamin C? Not quite. The first step is to eliminate those conditions that deplete Vitamin C levels in the first place. Here is the whole story told in fascinating detail. Simply stated, coronary disease is preventable and reversible without drugs. (More)

SPOOKS, HOODS, & THE HIDDEN ELITE; Testimony of Chauncey Holt, member of the JFK assassination team.
Late Great USA
This is the confession, made eight days before his death, of a man who worked in the joint service of organized crime and the CIA. Chauncey Holt tells why the Mob and the CIA wanted JFK dead and how they carried out his assassination. One of Holt’s assignments was to create false ID papers for Lee Harvey Oswald who he knew as a CIA undercover agent posing as a Castro supporter. Holt reveals that there were several shooters, but Oswald wasn’t one of them. He was set up to take the blame and draw attention away from the real assassination team. DVD. (More)

FILES ON JFK: The confession of James Files, the man who shot Kennedy.
Late Great USA
Speaking from prison, James Files tells how he was recruited by a Chicago crime family and worked with the CIA to assassinate JFK. He describes every step of the plan, names the key players, and explains their motives. The FBI claims that Files is not a credible witness; but you will be hard pressed to agree after hearing hundreds of details that only could come from intimate knowledge of the event and the players – including Jack Ruby and Lee Oswald. DVD. (More)

THE LATE GREAT U.S.A. The Coming Merger with Mexico and Canada. Late Great USAWhile many people are still clinging to the belief that The U.S.will never give up its sovereignty, the process already is far advanced. This is not just a super highway between Mexico and Canada, but a total political, economic, and military merger into what will be called the North American Union, identical to the creation of the EU. Here are the chilling details of a plan being implemented largely behind closed doors by global elitists to terminate the United States. (More)

DECEPTION WAS MY JOB
The Testimony of Yuri Bezmenov,
KGB Propagandist.
Deception Was My Job
Bezmenov, the son of a high-ranking Soviet officer, worked for the propaganda arm of the KGB known as the Novasti Press Agency. One of his assignments was to accompany journalists visiting the Soviet Union to make sure they did not discover the truth about Soviet life. After becoming disillusioned with the oppressive system, he escaped to the West at great risk to his life. In this interview, conducted by G. Edward Griffin, Bezmenov tells how the Soviets propagandized their own citizens; how he hoodwinked American journalists into publishing Soviet propaganda, how slave laborers are concealed from foreign visitors, and how he escaped to the West posing as an American hippie. Includes many photographs brought with him on microfilm at the time of his escape. (More)

LIBERTATEMS are one-ounce pure-silver medallions minted exclusively by Freedom Force. Each medallion features eight symbols illustrating the concepts of Libertatem  individualism as expressed in The Creed of Freedom. For an explanation of this symbolism, click here.
