"The passion of our hearts will be raised with our fists!"

This Memorial Day, remember an American Marine who fights for true liberty. Adam Kokesh is an enemy of tyranny who has promised that he will never back down no matter "if it takes the last full measure of devotion." From the Revolution March of 2008, Dancemaster Kokesh speaks:
It has been said that when in the course of human events, an oppression so revolts its subjects, it becomes necessary to alter or abolish the means of that tyranny.

Is it that time when our Bill of Rights is defiled every day?

When our adventures abroad threaten our security at home?

When the Federal Reserve keeps our free nation enslaved by debt?

When the people of the world tremble under the thumb of corporate imperialism?

And now our nation is drifting dangerously from freedom to fascism.

So I have to ask, is it time?

The time is now, the threat is clear, the bands of tyranny are tightening around America, and it is our duty to resist!

As empowered patriots, let us take stock of our commitment to the ideals upon which this country is founded.

America without her freedoms is like a body without a soul. The challenge before the Freedom Movement is no less, than to bring about a revolution of values, inspire a renaissance of American politics, and breathe new life into the tortured body of our nation.

We will meet that challenge with courage and love, and as always, we the people, will prevail!

To rally the troops of the Revolutionary Army in the winter of 1776, Thomas Paine said,

"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 by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered."

As Iraq Veterans Against the War, we are resisting an occupation that we once risked our lives for. We swore to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America, but we found out the hard way that the greatest enemies of the Constitution are not to be found in the sands of some far off land, but rather right here at home!

We are your new winter soldiers and we are still defending America.
