Let every American, every lover of liberty, every well wisher to his posterity, swear by the blood of the Revolution, never to violate in the least particular, the laws of the country; and never to tolerate their violation by others.

As the patriots of seventy-six did to the support of the Declaration of Independence, so to the support of the Constitution and Laws, let every American pledge his life, his property, and his sacred honor; let every man remember that to violate the law, is to trample on the blood of his father, and to tear the charter of his own, and his children's liberty.

Let reverence for the laws, be breathed by every American mother, to the lisping babe, that prattles on her lap; let it be taught in schools, in seminaries, and in colleges; let it be written in Primers, spelling books, and in Almanacs; let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislative halls, and enforced in courts of justice. And, in short, let it become the political religion of the nation; and Let the old and the young, the rich and the poor, the grave and the gay, of all sexes and tongues, and colors and conditions, sacrifice unceasingly upon its altars.

While ever a state of feeling, such as this, shall universally, or even, very generally prevail throughout the nation, vain will be every effort, and fruitless every attempt, to subvert our national freedom.

Follow-up stories: Aaron Hall murder

There are two excellent follow-up stories, posted in the blog section of the Bloomington Alternative (our local, alternative paper that does the work 'other American journalists don't want to do.')

In an an exclusive interview with Denise Travers, Aaron Hall's mother (Martha Gumm,) details the search and unfolding horror of finally finding her son, in "A Mother's Grief."

A second story, also by Travers, details the official medical report on Aaron Hall's body, and the clues it provides to his death, in "Medical Examiner's Report on Aaron Hall."

Thank you for this and I agree! I was with them for some parts of Nevada. More as support than a side by side walker.

Yes! Everyone please join them. If you are unable to join them on foot, stop by with some water, offer a home cooked meal, open up your home along the route for a good night's sleep.
