THE NARLO CHRONICLES
For 10 years now, we have been writing a weekly column covering the thorny issues that Americans are facing every day. We have included valuable information, opinion, a little inspiration and have even made attempts to get people to act against growing government abuses to our individual, unalienable rights. Our focus has been on what is wrong in America and the dire problems she faces. We have added our voice to the tens of thousands of other purveyors of the conservative message. The problems we and other authors write about, are worthy of constant attention since it is only through repetition that our messages will finally sink into the general public where the power for true change lies.
However, after 10 years of focusing on the negative and trying to get people to respond to the negative with concrete action, it has become abundantly apparent that our singular efforts are having little effect. Consequently, we have decided to use our writing talents to focusing on the positive where our readers can see that some individual or a small group has beaten our hopelessly corrupt and purposely complex systems and forced the government to turn tail and run.
Just about every movie we see focuses on a single individual that beats the odds and prevails against overwhelming forces. People love stories of Mountain men, trail blazers, wagon train masters, honest sheriffs that tame the town; pilots who defeat the enemy in the air with great flying skills; the hero that turns the tide of battle by heroic efforts; the citizen acting alone and at great personal risk exposes corruption; the mother who protects her young with strengths she never knew she had; or a David that vanquishes Goliath. We yearn to hear about the winner because wining is rare and life is so full of those that lose.
When we are up against an intractable and seemingly unbeatable enemy, we long to hear stories where the enemy has lost and the people have won. Sadly, the American government, at all levels, has become that enemy. These stories of victory give us hope and provide the motivation to continue on with our fight. Constantly focusing on the negative without solutions only makes us frustrated and robs us of our motivation and the will to fight. We need to know that someone has won. We need to know that someone went over the wall, or under the wall, or around the wall, or through the wall, using their main strength and awkwardness, or some specific tool that he or she discovered while working to right a wrong, or expose corruption, or to reverse an injustice.
All across this great land we know there are men and women who have challenged government abuses and unconstitutional law and came out the winner. Yes, these events are far fewer than the stories of those who lost their battle with government. Since government is now into every aspect of our lives, these challenges grow by the day and people seem to be losing every day to this onslaught. Nevertheless, a few are winning. The people and the government have become mortal enemies and it was never supposed to happen this way in a free and sovereign land. Government was supposed to be the servant, not the master. Government has become the master and the "servants" are growing restless ….. very restless! Some of the restless go after government and win.
In order to give these positive stories a voice, we have renamed our column "The NARLO Chronicles." It is to those stories of victory over tyranny we devote this column. The column will contain true stories of unsung heroes on the battlefield against government, their sacrifices, their losses and their victories, as immortalized in "The NARLO Chronicles." It is our full intent to inspire our readers rather than fill them with dread from all that has gone wrong in America.
If you have a story where you prevailed over government, or if you know of someone who took government on and won, we want to use our influence as a seasoned author to share these stories with our national audience. If you triumphed over the IRS, or the EPA, or the BLM, or a local or state government agency, please contact us. We want to bring your story to life.
To that end, we have created a "CHRONCILES" web page on the NARLO website that provides the details of how you, or someone you know, can share their victory with every day people throughout America, using our column. We intend that these stories not only provide a human-interest slant, but also share what tools or methods the individual used to win. We are currently working on a story where an individual poked his finger in the eye of the IRS and pulled out a stunning victory. He studied the law and used it against them.
America needs these stories at this pivotal time in its history. Help us bring these great stories of heroism and victory to a wide national audience and start injecting real hope into the people of America, instead of a daily barrage of negativity, doom and gloom. Please join with us in breathing life into "The NARLO Chronicles." Forward this article to your list, or put the word out on Facebook and Twitter. Let's get some positive energy flowing through America again. The American people aren't losers they are winners and it is way past time to start winning again.
Finally, we are pulling back on our weekly column and publishing two articles per month, one covering the usual subjects we have been hitting for the last 10 years and the second article will be taken from the annals of "The NARLO Chronicles." An archives web page has been created on the NARLO website HERE and each NARLO Chronicle article will be uploaded to that page, referenced by title and date. An archive of previous articles we have written under the "In Defense of Rural America" banner is still available HERE.
None of this will detour us from continuing to be an advocate for the American rural landowner, as delineated in our highly informational website, the "National Association of Rural Landowners," (NARLO)
Life is a fight, ladies and gentlemen, a fight to stay alive and a fight to keep others from taking your life, your possessions, or your liberty from you. The fight is eternal and gets even harder when we let apathy, indifference and ignorance replace awareness, knowledge and wisdom in our lives. We can win this battle, but like all battles, it "ain't" easy. We may even have to call upon the:
"Life Force Within Us"
all living things a life force resides.
the full poem "The
Life Force Within Me"
