Editor Message from Dave Hannah

 

The recent terrorist attacks in London raise awareness of the importance of spreading the message that FREEDOM is the better way to live both abroad and at home in the US.

In the London terrorist attack ordinary citizens jumped in and risked their lives tackling this knife wielding terrorist who killed two innocent people on London Bridge. It is clear from the reporting of this event, these average citizen patriots of extraordinary courage saved lives.

Thomas Paine wrote these words on the head of a drum and had them delivered to General George Washington, who made them into a speech before attacking the British, who outnumbered the rag tag American Revolution Army by 100 to 1 on December 24th 1776.

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as FREEDOM should not be highly rated.

America’s exceptionalism has at its core; the FREEDOMS our patriots fought and died for. As I write this message of spreading the word that FREEDOM is a better way to live, this message would be a good idea to present to those who support the NetZero Ban of Fossil Fuels that is spreading across our nation. The FREEDOM of Americans to heat their homes by choosing gas and oil as a main heating source over a single electric power source and having an option as a secondary back up source of wood/biomass is one of the basic rights our forefathers gave to us during the Revolutionary War. It would be risky to allow people who are not friendly to our nation the open door to take down our country by damaging our electric grid. Either by a natural disaster or by terrorist attack, our nation should never be left without the options available today for heating and power.

Many may argue the NetZero ban on Fossil Fuel is needed to fight against global warming. Standing up for the FREEDOM of all Americans in choice for home heating and power is not a stand for or against global warming. It is purely a stand for protecting those FREEDOMS earned on the battlefield and what makes America the best country in the world to live.
