At Unfiltered Patriot, we jealously guard and defend the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Too often these days, people seem to think that freedom is some man-made concept that we owe to our benevolent overlords in the government. They think of rights as privileges instead of something each and every one of us is owed. This is why the Bill of Rights is so often the center of controversy. The left believes that these rights should come with a bunch of restrictions. They don’t believe in personal responsibility. Unfortunately, that ain’t what being a human being is all about, and it sure as hell isn’t what being an American is all about. If you think that freedoms and rights are these mystical things that should be limited whenever possible, you’ve come to the wrong place.
In the Constitution, it says, “…all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Doesn’t that sentence bring joy to your heart? Doesn’t it make you feel alive? There’s nothing in there about the damn government! The founding fathers believed that government should get the hell out of the way whenever possible, and Unfiltered Patriot believes the same. If everyone did, there would be no reason for this website to exist. Sadly, many of our fellow “Americans” think that government should act as an omniscient king, doling out freedoms and punishments according to the whims of the people. Hey, that may work for your country, but it isn’t going to fly in the USA.
Our government has a responsibility, to be sure, and that responsibility includes protecting the country from enemies who would pose a threat to our freedoms. As part of that responsibility, the government must build up its war chest, stamp out terrorists, and meet evil wherever it might hide. From what we’ve seen over the last half-century or so, though, that government is all too often the very evil it is sworn to defend against. Our greatest threats to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness come not from Al-Qaeda but from socialists, Marxists, and RINOs who do everything possible to grow the government.
We’re called Unfiltered Patriot because it’s time that true-blooded conservatives took a stand against the weak, liberal cancer that is eating away at the country. Make no mistake about it, we believe that America is God’s country, and we owe it to Him to see our Manifest Destiny through to the glorious end. Through America’s great liberties, we have improved the world’s standard of living by leaps and bounds, put men on the moon, and stopped the tyranny of evil in countries abroad. America, even when guided by sound ideology, is not a perfect place, but we love her even in the face of her greatest mistakes.
Left to their own devices, liberals (including liberals wearing conservative sheepskins) will grow the government until there is nothing left of personal liberty. Until we are all dependent on the public good for our rights, our food, and our very lives. We’d like to keep that from happening. Stay tuned to Unfiltered Patriot to see us call out politicians and special interest groups every time they try to push our country to the left. As long as we put our foot down and say no, we can keep America great. Sound like something worth talking about?
