KEN’S CORNER: Liberty or Death …
Commentary by TLB Contributing Writer: Ken LaRive
I have a gun for every occasion. I carry concealed to protect my family while traveling. I carry a shotgun for birds and varmints at close range. I have another shotgun that carries 24 short 12 gage shells, for searching my home at night. I have a 7mm for deer, and a 30/30 for monsters… But this one is special. I shoot this often to get proficient, and I’m capable of carrying it all day long through wood and vale. This gun protects my Civil Liberties, given to me by God, and My Constitutional Republic based on law.
I took an oath at 19 when I joined the Navy, to protect the Constitution from all enemies both domestic and foreign, and I see sedition from traitors in the folds of my Government. I am an oath keeper, and I’m not alone, but I assure you I don’t care if I am the one and only, I will stand fast. I have something in me I would die for, it’s called honor. It’s something you Progressive Marxists do not understand. I saw the second amendment under fire three times when that Communist Obama was in office, and every time my convictions grew more focused, and strong.
Today I saw that a New Mexico Governor has drawn up a mandate to confiscate guns, saying if any Sheriff refuses they must immediately resign. I say that this mandate is null and void, and that she should be arrested for sedition, tried as a traitor, and then without ceremony, an appropriate punishment.
I’m very tired with these constant threats, and so I’m coming forth right now with just a few words: Come and take them. Let’s get it on. Give me liberty, or give me death.

From the Author, Ken La Rive – We in the Liberty movement have been fighting to take back this country for less than a decade, peacefully and with the love of God and country in our hearts. Our banner has been trampled on and displaced by a multitude of distractions, further eroding our nation and the cause for Liberty. And so, as we are pulled by forces we cannot fathom, powerful entities with unlimited resources stolen from our future, unaccountable trillions printed out of thin air and put on our backs as debt, we must formulate the most pitiful of all questions any patriot might ask in the final hour: Are we going to fight for our master’s tyranny, or are we going to demand the return of our civil liberties and Constitution? Are we going to choose The Banner of Liberty, or the shackles of voluntary servitude? Will it be a war for corporate profit, or a war to regain our ability to self govern, as the blood and toil of our forefathers presented to us, their children, as a gift? I fear that decision is emanate. I fear that any decision will be a hard one, but my greatest fear of all is that the decision has already been made for us.

The Liberty Beacon Project is now expanding at a near exponential rate, and for this we are grateful and excited! But we must also be practical. For 7 years we have not asked for any donations, and have built this project with our own funds as we grew. We are now experiencing ever increasing growing pains due to the large number of websites and projects we represent. So we have just installed donation buttons on our websites and ask that you consider this when you visit them. Nothing is too small. We thank you for all your support and your considerations … (TLB)
