About

Originally started in response to the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), Maximus Libertas began with the humble hope of sharing information and/or stories not covered (or at least not making the headlines) in the major media.  The ultimate goal: to promote self-directed thought, consideration of points often omitted by the main-stream media…like history or the actual documents, and a grassroots information train.  I have limited time to devote; as like you I have family, responsibilities, and I sometimes want to get out and enjoy life.  So, as time permits I will continue to provide food for thought, historical quotes and references, and relevant stories that I hope you devour…and share with our fellow brothers and sisters.  As you read these words there are people actively campaigning/working to derail the very principles that made this country great; not necessarily out of spite, but their own ignorance and indoctrination.  Our most effectual weapon is to educate, but this is a long and difficult road which may very well take more than a generation to realize any lasting benefit.  The longer we wait, the more difficult it will be.  I am only one person, but incredible dreams have been birthed from “We the People,” and have often exceeded expectations.

Only We can turn things around to ensure opportunity and liberty for our children, but We must be dedicated enough to set aside some of our entertainment.  I am reminded of the movie Gladiator, when Russell Crowe’s character, Maximus, screamed out to the spectators of his slaughter, “ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!”  We are witnessing the moral decay of our country; ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!  We are watching broken families, unsupportive parents, and failing schools across our country; ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!  We are watching the continued increase of our country’s debt that will be paid by our children; ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!  We are observing people attempting to re-write the founding ideals of our country; ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!   We are watching liberties being pulled away in little strips; ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!  We are witness to the stigmatization of God and His guiding principles that shaped our country; ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

WE must make a commitment.  This is not for the weak of heart…or of mind.  I hope you’ll join me on this journey, and I pray that We will have the heart and mind to be of some benefit.

“Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom.  As nations become corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters.”  -Benjamin Franklin

God bless,

    Could you tell me how you chose the name Maximus Libertas? I understand it is Latin, and I know what it means.. just wanted to know if it was used in any documents written by the founding fathers. Thanks!

      Sharon, in my own readings I have yet to come across any of our founder’s writings that used this phrase in latin. That being said, and knowing that that latin was a must of any learned fellow of the day, I can imagine it being uttered at some point; whether recorded or not. Why choose to champion Great Freedom? Of course there is a necessary balance of government and personal freedom, and if I am to err, I choose to err on the side of liberty. Yet, attached to the strings of liberty is greater responsibility. With minimal time I put forth this site in hopes of finding others who are willing to promote its message. I appreciate your interest, hope you find its resources beneficial, and ask that you share the site if you do. ML
