Free Florida First to Be at 33rd Annual Peanut Festival

This will look familiar to many of you. I initially sent out notice of Free Florida First's participation in the Central Florida Peanut festival, and then had to send out notification of the cancellation of the festival due to Hurricane Ian. Now, LORD WILLING, the festival will take place on Saturday, October  15, 2022 and we will have our booth there. Hope to see some of you!

Lord willing, Free Florida First will have a booth at the 33rd Annual Central Florida Peanut Festival on Saturday, October 15, 2022. The festival will be held from 9am to 3pm at the Heritage Park in Williston, Florida.

We have had a booth at the Peanut Festival for many years now. It is an opportunity to get ourselves before the public and let folks know that some of us still strive to stand in the old ways and ask for the old paths. We proudly display the banners of our fathers and encourage our fellow Southerners to work with us for a Free, Independent, Godly, Prosperous, and Traditionally Southern Florida. Essentially, we just want to be free from the tyrannical government in DC (the District of Corruption) and be left alone to live our lives as we see fit. [It really makes no difference at all who may happen to be in the yankee "White House".]

Jeremiah 6:16a
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. . . .

Our presence at the festival has not always met with universal approval. Here's my blog from 2019 about an ignorant and biased letter that was written to the local communist rag (The Gainesville Sun) about our participation:

So come on out to the Peanut Festival, visit with us, buy some flags, and then go home and fly them, to show your own commitment to liberty and truth.

Here’s a sample of the 3’ X 5’ flags we offer for sale at the festival for $10 each or three (3) for $25.

It is important for us all to stand up, show our colors and FIGHT FOR DIXIE!

50 Years, By the Grace of God!

This week’s blog is a bit more personal than usual. Personal -- and I hope helpful and practical.

This past week my wife and I celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary, as we gathered together with our three daughters, seven grandchildren, and their spouses.

Those 50 years were a gift from our heavenly Father, and it was His grace that made them possible. I take no credit for any of that myself, and I give all the glory unto Him. But we should realize that He has also ordained that we stand and struggle and fight to accomplish His decreed will.

The world about us grows increasingly more evil and confusing every day. We see Paul’s horrible descriptions found in Romans 1 being lived out before us.

Romans 1:26-32
For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:  (27)  And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.  (28)  And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;  (29)  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,  (30)  Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  (31)  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  (32)  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

Sometimes we struggle with how we might best stand against the seemingly overwhelming onslaughts and how we might best fight back against the depravity and perversity of our day.

We will not prevail by tilting at windmills and seeking to change things that we cannot change. We will not prevail by swaying the mass, or by voting, or by political action. And though our enemies force us to resort to arms, we will not ultimately prevail by that.

We cannot prevail by fixing the mess. We can, however, undertake to fix ourselves! We will only prevail by living our own lives in accordance with God’s revealed will. Until we have put our hands to this task, nothing else will really matter.

Our enemies attack from myriad directions, but we should recognize that Satan’s primary assault is upon the God-ordained institutions of marriage and the family.

So, fix yourself and your family, before you attempt to fix anything else.

I shared some verses with our folks this past Sunday that I hope you might find helpful.

Proverbs 5:18 
Let thy fountain be blessed: and rejoice with the wife of thy youth.

Ecclesiastes 9:9
Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.

God determined that it was not good for man to be alone, and made a help meet for him.

Genesis 2:18
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

And when the Lord brought Eve to Adam, Adam responded:

Genesis 2:23-24
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.  (24)  Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Our Lord reiterated this truth during His earthly ministry:

Matthew 19:5-6
And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, (5)  And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? (6)  Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

This is God’s way. God’s way is NOT fornication and adultery and sodomy and all other manner of sexual depravity and confusion.

God’s way is one man and one woman for a lifetime with only death breaking that bond.

Do you desire to be a warrior against the Satanic assaults that surround? Then stablish yourself, love your wife, love your children, separate from the insane sinfulness that surrounds, and live unto the Lord. Do not condone or embrace or excuse the evil spirit of the day.

No, we cannot fix everyone and everything, but we can, by the Grace of God, stand with Joshua in saying:

Joshua 24:15
And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.

It is my prayer that the Lord will allow my wife and I to serve Him in whatever days remain to us. I pray that He may use us as an encouragement and example to our kith and kin to do likewise.

Taxation to fund public education is armed robbery (just like all other taxation)!

No authority for government involvement in education can be found in either the U.S. Constitution or in the Holy Scriptures. Government simply has no legitimate function in education. NONE!!!

The original Constitution of Florida (1838) made no mention of education and Florida entered the union in 1845 under that Constitution. The first mention of “public” education is in Florida’s1868 Constitution. That Constitution was adopted under the duress of yankee occupation, after our wicked occupiers rejected a proposed 1865 Constitution.

All taxation is armed robbery, but taxation for the purpose of “public education” is particularly egregious.

Florida’s current Governor, Ron DeSantis has been lauded by some for making the following statement concerning Old White Joe’s college loan “forgiveness” scheme:

“It’s very unfair to have a truck driver have to pay back a loan from somebody who got a PhD in gender studies.”

All well and good, but Ron is a huge advocate and supporter of “public education.”

Perhaps Ron can explain to me how it is “fair” for me, a 72 year-old retiree, to pay for the K-12 education of my neighbor’s children. Just for the record, my wife and I educated our own children at home and at our own expense.

How is it “fair” for me to have a gun held to my head and to be forced to fund “public education”?  Yes, there is a gun held to my head, and they are committed to killing me, if I don’t fork over their extortion money. That’s how armed robbery works:

1. They tax my property to pay for their government schools. [They claim authority based upon something called the “social contract”, which I don’t recall having ever signed.]

2. Second, if I refuse to pay their immoral and illegitimate taxes, they will attempt confiscate my home.

3. Next, if I refuse to vacate my own property, they will attempt to have me arrested.

4. And finally, if I resist that unlawful arrest, they will simply kill me!

Before I close, I want to add this. I mentioned Florida’s current governor. Some folks have great hopes for him. I don’t dispute that he may be better than most politicians. BUT that ain’t sayin’ much! He’s still a slimy politician!!!

We will never be able to vote ourselves out of this mess. The liberal New York yankee, Donald J. Trump is no solution.

The “conservative” Ron DeSantis is no solution. The only answer is separation from the evil amerikan empire!

Start today by seceding in your own heart and mind!

You can begin by tearing down that striped yankee banner and by ceasing to participate in their meaningless elections.

Elections are an attempt to manufacture your consent to their evil system! (I’ll probably have more to say about  this in the future.)

BOTTOM LINE: There ain’t no fixin’ things ‘til we get our own heads and hearts right!!
