American Patriots: Remembering What Is Real
NOTE: My original report, Remembering What Is Real, was written in 2005, and names of patriots added in 2009.
Upon further consideration (in disgust) of the recent report published by the Southern Poverty Law Center, titled Meet the 'Patriots', I have decided to repost my own list of patriots.
My list, unlike that of the SPLC, is meant to give credit where it is due, along with sincere appreciation for those who stand up for this country, often at great sacrifice to themselves and their families.
I should also add that my standards for patriotism are sky-high, which is why the list is not longer than it is; however, I have added a few names since the last time I posted this, and I continue to hope that the list will grow.

Messengers of Truth, Defenders of Liberty: Remembering What Is Real
As you might imagine, it gets very tiresome (and more than a little depressing) writing reports which expose government rat bastards, their stooges and shills and other assorted liars, scamsters, scandal-mongers, criminal perps, psycho-stalkers and lowlife losers.
So for a refreshing change, here's a list of indivduals I consider to be Messengers of Truth and Defenders of Liberty. Some are acquaintances, some are friends, and/or professional colleagues. Others are those I may not know personally, but whose work and activism I admire and value.
Some of these individuals are unlawfully incarcerated at this moment for the uncompromising stand they have taken and the principles they uphold. Some are being persecuted. But all have won my respect and I thank them for their contributions to all who stand for Liberty and seek Truth. In a brief phrase, they "remember what is real".
Ed and Elaine Brown
Keith Hansen (Vyzygoth)
Sherry Peel Jackson
Pastor James David Manning
Rev. Ted Pike
Lt. Eric Shine
Carl F. Worden
This is far from a complete list. And hopefully, I will find names to add to it as time goes by. But these individuals, from my observations over a period of years, all exemplify the principles outlined in this piece I wrote in 2005. May God richly bless them all.
