General: Happy Birthday America

All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent……Thomas Jefferson.
Resolved: That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States, that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.
My ancestor Richard Henry Lee wrote that 236 years ago. Our family is blessed to have two signers of the Declaration of Independence in our tree; the other was Richard’s younger brother, Francis Lightfoot Lee. For us, American history is all in the family.
These men had the character and the intellectual fortitude to stand against the greatest power on earth and forge a new nation. What would they think of us now?
The Supreme Court has just ruled that Obamacare is Constitutional because it is a tax. Not just any tax, it is the largest tax in global history.
Neither my great uncles nor their friend, Patrck Henry, could remain silent and stand by in the face of a British three cent Tea Tax. This Fourth of July, with the launching of CainTV, we fire another shot in the New American Revolution.
In his run for the Presidency, Herman Cain said that, “We need to be the Defending Fathers of the Declaration of Independence.” How do we do that? We do that by remembering who we are, where we come from, by speaking out and by each of us actually doing something for the cause of Liberty. We must all refuse to remain silent.
As for me? I intend to inform and entertain by any means necessary.
When I made Border, I was called a racist, but the truth survived. When I filmed the reality of the Honduran regime change, people wanted us dead, but the truth survived. When the MSM tried to downplay DC 912 and then ignore Herman Cain’s run for the Whitehouse, we put the crowds on camera, and the rest is history.
HC also stated that America needs to lighten up and that together we can put the United, back into the United States of America. All over this nation I have seen the crowds hunger for that kind of freedom.
You know what folks, if we can get America to lighten up, we will put the United back into the United States of America.
Here on CainTV, I promise you that we will do our best to entertain, inform and inspire all of America. I look forward to your part in this project by providing feedback and ideas for future shows and projects.
Now, if we offend some folks, too bad. In the quest for humor we may well end up offending everybody. We may well end up being equal opportunity offenders.
We will not be politically correct and we will not bow down to outside pressure in our content nor our opinions. The last time I checked this was still a free country. You do not need to think like we do, you just need to think.
Do not let the politicians or the media fool you. We the People are so much more than just the “Right” and the “Left”. Thomas Jefferson said that a free press is essential to an informed and engaged citizenry. I think that today he would have said that a free internet television network is essential for the evolution of an engaged, educated and entertained American citizenry.
If we all do our jobs, CainTV will be that network. We will be a 21st century weapon in the fight for Liberty and fellowship.
No matter what happens, when I meet Uncle Richard and Uncle Francis in the next life, I will be able to say that I refused to remain silent.
