Thomas Paine Publish First Essay of The American Crisis Series

The first of the American crisis essays was printed in the Pennsylvania Journal on this day, December 19, 1776 and begins a call for Americans to serve the cause of American independence.

"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 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 every thing its value."

Thomas Paine (January 29, 1737 – June 8, 1809, New York City, U.S.) was born in Thetford, England and immigrated to the American colonies just in time to take part in the American Revolution. He had met Benjamin Franklin in London on June 4, 1774 and the two soon became friends. In September Franklin advised Paine to emigrate to the British colonies in America, and wrote him letters of recommendation. Paine left England in October, arriving in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 30, 1774.

In 1776 while working for the Pennsylvania Journal, Paine published Common Sense which spread quickly among the colonists. Within three months, 120,000 had been distributed. Its total sales in both America and Europe reached 500,000 copies. It convinced many colonists, to seek independence from Great Britain.

As the burden of war began to grow, Paine published a series of important pamphlets, The American Crisis, which inspired the colonists to endure the ordeals in their struggle with the British. To inspire the troops, George Washington ordered it to be read out loud to his men. Evidently, this was done, not because they were illiterate, but because Washington felt it was important enough that he wanted to insure each of his men would hear the words of The American Crisis. Also it would have been too difficult for each of his men to purchase their own copy.

From the moment Thomas Paine wrote his first words of political thought be became a controversial figure. He was hunted down by the British, fled to Paris, serve in the French government, imprisoned, miraculously escaped execution, returned to America and died alone. Only 6 people attended his funeral.

There are things he wrote which I would strongly disagree with, but he spoke his mind freely and without reservation. He is credited with giving our nation its name - The United States of America.
The hysterical state of American Jewry toward anyone which claims the mantel of Christianity seems to have no limits.

Even the most liberal advocate for the globalist agenda cannot escape the barrage of Jewish anti-Christian attacks if they dare identify themselves too strongly as Christian.

For example, Mike Huckabee & John McCain are running for president and are certainly not a friend of those who want to secure our borders and maintain American sovereignty. However, if they state the obvious they can get in serious trouble. There is no doubt that America was founded as a Christian nation. The claim of separation of church and state never entered the minds of our founding fathers. Their concern was the establishment of a state church such as exist in England. There is to be no special recognition of denominational preference. But that we were a Christian nation was undeniable and incontestable.

Mike Huckabee stated in 1998, "I hope we answer the alarm clock and take this nation back for Christ. I got into politics because I knew government didn’t have the real answers. The real answers lie in accepting Jesus Christ into our lives."

The head of the National Jewish Council has sent out an alert urging Jews to keep an eye on Huckabee. But even John McCain has not escaped the anti-Christian hate of organized Jewry. Recently, McCain was asked in an interview with Dan Gilgoff at about whether or not the Constitution established us as a "Christian nation," McCain said, "I would probably have to say yes, that the Constitution established the United States of America as a Christian nation."

If you would like to see the complete interview go to. With that simple statement, Abe Foxman of the anti-Christian Anti-Defamation League immediately demanded an apology from McCain. To his credit, McCain has not yet apologized.

The question we must ask is, if the efforts of groups like the Anti-Defamation League or the National Jewish Council succeed will Christians eventually be denied to hold public office?
Now don’t be mistaken into thinking that I am endorsing either of these men. In my opinion they are wrong on most of the issues which are facing this nation.

I am supporting Ron Paul. Is Ron Paul a White Nationalist? Not that I know of and this is not to say that I might not disagree with some of his policies or comments. But I am a constitutionalist - that’s right - I said it. I am a constitutionalist and believe our government officials should follow the constitution. As a White Nationalist I don’t believe I or we need any special favors or programs. Unlike minorities who demand entitlements based upon the color of their skin, I and other white nationalists I know, simply want the faithful adherence to the Constitution. In other words, we want the federal government out of our lives. In the words of Thomas Paine, "Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one."

A Constitutional Republic under the principles of our Christian faith established America as a world power and will be a blessing to all who live here.
