What is the Patriot Movement?
Most people reading this will remember the civil rights movement of the 1960's. Even if you didn't live through it, you've likely read about it in school or heard about it. The civil rights movement of the 1960's was intended to strengthen the rights granted by Congress to certain minority groups living in America. However, not all rights in America are "granted by Congress".
The vast majority of American citizens are vested with "unalienable rights" at the time of their birth. Accordingly to the Declaration of Independence, these unalienable rights are bestowed upon us by "the Creator" [God], and government is powerless to alter, modify, or abolish these rights.
These "unalienable rights" belong to every Citizen of a state of the Union. They belong to you, and may never be taken from you, even if you don't know what they are or can't name a single one of them! In the system of government that our Founding Fathers established (and under which you live), these unalienable rights are intended as your primary protection from government's arbitrary use of power or its encroachment into your private affairs.
Unfortunately, due to gaping holes in both the public and private education systems, as well as a concerted effort on the part of government to deny the existence of such unalienable rights, average Americans are no longer even aware (except possibly in some vague philosophical sense) that they possess such rights and that these rights are intended to be actively and aggressively used for your protection and happiness. Most are unaware that these unalienable rights are their birthright as Americans.
The Patriot Movement is dedicated to an intellectual revival of these rights and the active application of them by American Citizens in their day-to-day lives.
Only in this way, can America halt (and reverse) the stealthy encroachment of government into every nook and cranny of our private lives. Only in this way can Americans live with true liberty, which so many sacrificed to establish and preserve.
To be frank, most Americans wouldn't know what it means to live with liberty if it bit them on the bottom. That's because there are few left alive today who can remember America before the vast and dramatic changes of the early 1900's that propelled our nation away from the principles of liberty, and towards principles that are antithetical to liberty.
