"The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people, a change in their religious sentiments of their duties and obligations” - John Adams to Hezekiah Niles, 1818 Have you ever wondered what was being preached in the American colonies before the revolution? Given the outstanding role that "religious sentiments" played in the pre-war psyche, we…
 
The Stamp Act was now going into effect in Colonial America, meaning colonists of all stripes (anybody that used paper) had to make a choice - to use the comply or not to comply. John Dickinson, “the Penman of the Revolution”, wrote this broadside pamphlet to encourage his countrymen to carefully consider their course of action, and the consequence…
 
In this episode I read through and briefly talk about another important document from the revolutionary era, The Rights of Colonists, by Samuel Adams. This document is another one of the many you can trace the similar lines of thought from the early 1760's (and earlier) to the mid 1770's, and beyond. Adams further develops the concept of natural ri…
 
What do we do when a country is being divided? When "enemies" are skewing events, blowing things out of perspective, and demonizing us? When we are being labeled as "dangerous" and "a threat"? Well, lets take a peek into a similar situation back in 1768, and see how a Boston town meeting wrote to their London agent and explained events that had bee…
 
In this podcast episode I read through a rousing oration given by patriot Samuel Adams in Philadelphia on August 1st, 1776 American Independence.

In this short episode I read through America’s favorite document, the Declaration of Independence. Most of us probably read through it in grade school, some of us have studied it since then, but I believe all of us could benefit from once again listening to these timely, intentional words. Pauline Maier’s book American Scripture: Making the Declara…
 
Today I celebrate the the historic Supreme Court decision, where they get something right and recognize our God-given right to self defense, specifically carrying pistols in public.

In this episode I read Washington’s Farewell Address. Our first president was offering some parting advice, while looking forward to retirement after over 20 years of service to his country. Issues he addressed back then may sound familiar to us even today. He mentioned the dangers of party politics, overgrown military establishments, entangling Eu…
 
Words are our primary means of expressing ideas. As such, they are natural means of subversion of liberty, which is, among other things, an idea. This is the inaugural episode for an ongoing series of episodes called "Wordy Wednesday". Sometimes, we'll dive into high-impact words and spend a full length episode digging into the word and the ideas b…
 
February 11th, 1768, 254 years ago today, the Massachusetts Colonial Legislature sent out what we today would call an open letter to the British Parliament, with copies sent to the other colonies as well. Recent acts of Parliament were felt in the colonies to be "encroaching" on the public liberty. The rights asserted in this letter were felt to be…
 
The Second Amendment Preservation Act, commonly referred to as SAPA, has been in the news a lot lately. Everybody, if you listen to the mainstream news, is against it now. Gun-grabbing leftists, news and media outlets, and maybe surprisingly to some, the law enforcement community has come out against the act. However, this is a historic bill that t…
