The Blessings of Liberty
From the Preamble of the Constitution of the United States of America
We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America
The freedom of speech, the First Amendment is very much under fire in the so-called free world. Here follow statements from Lin Wood which I have referred to in my last posts. He pays a high price for exercising his First Amendment right of free speech.

We ALL have so many questions about America, our freedom, our families, our livelihoods, and our futures, to name a few. What happened to our country? How did we get here on the brink of totalitarianism? What is going to happen? What can/should we do?
Those are just some of the questions racing through the minds of concerned and observant citizens.
Personally, I ponder how in the past 6-8 months, I went from being described as a highly-respected lawyer to being smeared nationwide as mentally ill, a liar, a conspiracy theorist and a man who literally went off the rails crazy, to name just a FEW of the vicious, vile, and patently false terms used to attack me.
You would think my head would be spinning.
It is not.
I know what is happening. I started discussing it on Twitter early in 2020. I was talking about a color revolution, Chief Justice Roberts, Bill Gates, mail-in votes, the Plandemic, censorship, Communism. etc. before talking about those subjects was cool (or not cool depending on your point of view).
No one banned me at first. That came later when my voice was heard by an increasing number of my fellow citizens. No one threatened my life. My heavily armed security team came later when my voice was heard by an increasing number of my fellow citizens.
What did I do wrong? I exercised my right of free speech to speak truth and stimulate the minds of those who were kind enough to follow me.
I am most certainly not a prophet and I have no crystal ball or time machine. How did I know?
I am reminded of some bible verses from Mark 5:22-25, Amplified Bible
For nothing is hidden, except to be revealed; nor has anything been kept secret, but that it would come to light.
“If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear and heed my words.” Pay attention to what you hear. By your own standard of measurement [that is, to the extend that you study spiritual truth and apply godly wisdom] it will be measured to you [and you will be given even greater ability to respond]-and more will be given to you besides.
For whoever has [a teachable heart], to him more [understanding] will be given; and whoever does not have [a yearning for truth], even what he has will be taken away from him”
