Common Sense 2020
Near the beginning of our Revolutionary War, in January 1776, English-born American political theorist Thomas Paine authored Common Sense, perhaps the most influential writing at the time. This publication helped inspire Patriots to ultimately declare independence from the authoritarian rule of King George III and Great Britain.
Throughout the decades following our founding, America has evolved and grown. There have certainly been struggles along the way but, suffice to say, the United States of America has been the only true shining beacon for individual freedom and liberty ever established.
Yet, it now appears to be at risk.
Beginning in March 2020, the political climate became unlike any other in our nation's history. State and local elected officials enacted draconian, even tyrannical, measures, while also allowing lawlessness to run rampant in our streets.
An internationally declared pandemic, that has numerous testing and reporting issues, opened the door to allow open season on the freedom, rights and liberties of We the People.
It may be difficult to see what is really going on with all of the smoke and mirrors.

Our Founding Fathers

Our Founding Fathers of the United States of America were visionaries. They were well studied. They desired to have freedom and liberty. Thus, having lived under the oppression of King George III of England for what they felt was far too long, they decided to take matters into their own hands.

At the Second Continental Congress they declared, together, the following, stated in our Declaration of Independence, "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor."

In order to keep our Constitutional Republic free it behooves all Americans to avail themselves of the history of this great nation and realize that the only way to accomplish this is to be educated on our U.S. Constitution and what our Founders intended.

Much of how they envisioned our government is in various writings and speeches they delivered before, during and after our War for Independence.

Offered here is a free PDF eBook download containing quotes from several of the Founders, particularly about America, the Constitution, Liberty and Freedom, and how to keep the newly formed government functioning. As well, this booklet includes our four founding documents along with some interesting facts and trivia.

The Handbook for We the People

Our unique Constitution is the only thing standing between you and the possession of your natural rights. Natural rights enjoy an elevated and hallowed status over constitutional rights because they are God-given and cannot be taken away by man. They are yours and yours alone.

Constitutional rights, on the other hand, are subject to the whims of those in government. One day you have them. The next day you may not. The government will decide.

The framers of our Constitution expected We the People to be the natural guardians of our own freedoms, not the elected officials or appointed judges. How is it possible for we the people to do that if we do not have a basic working knowledge of the rules?

The People's Guide to the United States Constitution

Webster defines “constitution” as an agreement that sets in place a system of fundamental principles for the government of rational and social beings. A constitution, you might say, lays out the basic rules of the game for people who want freedom for themselves and for others. Written to guarantee the rights of individuals and provide a framework for cooperation, the United States Constitution protects those rights. The result has been, in many ways, the most successful and prosperous society in history. But what might happen if the players forget the rules of the game? Chaos, arguments, people making up their own rules. If we do not understand what the Constitution actually says, we could give up our rights and not even know it.

So, this book was written for people, like me, who want to guarantee their own freedom and enjoy the benefits of living in a society, maybe even a world, which respects and protects human rights and freedom for all. I hope that this book, the result of my own citizen self education, will help give readers a basic understanding of what the Constitution actually says and, with this understanding, enable them to better decide for themselves how to claim and exercise their rights.

Common Sense (1776)

Common Sense is a pamphlet written by Thomas Paine and was first published anonymously on January 10, 1776. The original working title was Plain Truth. It openly challenged British authority and rule in the Colonies and was directed at We the People, providing strong arguments for declaring independence from Great Britain and the Monarchy. It was sold and distributed quite widely throughout the Colonies but there seems to be no accurate figure as to how many copies were sold, with estimates ranging from 75,000 to 500,000. . Historian Gordon S. Wood described Common Sense as “the most incendiary and popular pamphlet of the entire revolutionary era.”

The 1776 Commission Report

In September 2020, President Donald J. Trump issued an Executive Order establishing a 20-person committee to essentially compile and write a report on "core principles of the American founding and how these principles may be understood to further enjoyment of 'the blessings of liberty'."

The 1776 Commission Report was made available through the White House website on January 18, 2021. The incoming administration removed it from the main site two days later. The Report is still currently available in the "Trump White House Archives." As a government document the Report is in the Public Domain (Creative Commons Public Domain Mark 1.0).

We at IC Liberty Films feel Americans should have the opportunity to download and read the report in its entirety. Admittedly, there has been ample controversy surrounding the Report coming primarily from President Trump's opponents, classifying it as being riddled with errors and partisan politics. We do not happen to agree, but leave that determination to the reader.

IC Liberty Films wholeheartedly agrees with our Founders' belief that Americans must be educated in the principles of freedom and what that means.

As Thomas Jefferson, principal author of our Declaration of Independence and third president proclaimed, “Enlighten the people generally, and tyranny and oppressions of body and mind will vanish like evil spirits at the dawn of the day.”

And, as a reminder, James Madison, Father of our Constitution and fourth president, stated, "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite."
