Calling All Patriot Business Owners
By Chuck Baldwin
This column was initially released last July. Since then, we have had
numerous requests to reprint this column for the benefit of many
patriot businessmen across the country that may have missed it.
Faithful readers of this column are very familiar with my call to
locate a modern-day “Black Regiment.” The Black Regiment was a
moniker affixed to those patriot preachers of colonial America who
thundered forth the message of liberty and freedom, and without whose
leadership our War for Independence would never have been waged--or
won. One can see our Black Regiment web page at:
Well, today’s column takes the call one step further. Not only did
colonial preachers rally to the cause of freedom and independence, but
so did hundreds of colonial businessmen. Without a doubt, had not
committed shopkeepers, physicians, lawyers, bankers, merchants,
ranchers, and businessmen of all types assisted our fight for
independence, the cause would certainly have been lost.
Accordingly, today I am extending a clarion call to all patriot
business owners across America to stand and be counted. Therefore, we
have posted a new PATRIOT BUSINESSES page to our web site. As with the
Black Regiment page, we will list patriot business owners State by
State, so fellow patriots across the country can locate and support
those businesses that are friendly to the cause of freedom.
Frankly, I am tired of supporting businesses (many of them big
businesses) that have absolutely no fidelity whatsoever to the cause
of liberty or independence. In fact, some of these businesses openly
(or even clandestinely) support freedom’s enemies. And while we may
never be able to totally stop trading with these Judases, it would be
nice to know which businesses in my area are owned and operated by
honest-to-God patriots. I would happily trade with such people. How
As with my Black Regiment appeal, I likewise offer some basic
criteria by which patriot business owners may be identified by
patriot-consumers as those professionals who are friendly to the cause
1. You are a strong proponent of the principles contained in the
Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights. You also readily
acknowledge that our rights come from God, not government.
2. You understand the necessity and integrity of sovereign national
borders and, therefore, would never hire illegal aliens in your place
3. You believe in a limited federal government and would never aid
and abet the burgeoning surveillance state that both the federal and
some State and local governments are creating, meaning you would never
allow your business to be used by the government to trample the
personal and privacy rights of citizens. In other words, you oppose
the so-called USA Patriot Act, the Military Commissions Act, and any
other act that abridges protections guaranteed in the Bill of Rights.
4. You believe in the right to life and believe that each State has a
duty to protect and defend that God-given right. And, if a physician
or nurse, you would never personally participate in terminating the
life of an unborn baby.
5. You fully support the Second Amendment’s protection of the right
of the people to keep and bear arms and would, therefore, never
prevent lawfully armed citizens from entering your establishment.
6. You are neither a neocon nor a liberal. In other words, you
support the principles of limited government; do not believe America
should fight preemptive, undeclared wars; oppose Obamacare (socialized
medicine); resent the growing police state; and refuse to vote for
“the lesser of two evils” for the sake of party partisanship.
7. You believe in supporting patriot leaders and organizations that
are working to reestablish America’s founding principles in our
8. You understand the importance of State sovereignty and
independence and believe that each State has the authority to resist
the federal government’s usurpations and encroachments upon liberty
and personal freedom.
9. You would never sacrifice the principles of honesty and integrity
for financial gain.
10. If an attorney, you understand that constitutional law (and the
Natural Law principles undergirding it) is superior to court opinions
(case law). Plus, you understand and support the right of Jury
Nullification as a protection against overbearing government
If you are a business owner who is willing to identify yourself as a
patriot such as is described above, I invite you to add your name and
business to our new “Patriot Businesses” web page, where fellow
patriots around the country can locate you, and, hopefully, support
your business, because they know that you, like them, are supporting
the principles of freedom.
To add your name to our new “Patriot Businesses” directory, we
need the following pieces of information from you:
1. Your name
2. The name of your business
3. Type of business
4. Phone number of business
5. Address, City, State, and Zip Code of business 6. Email address
(and web site, if applicable)
Send this information to:
There is no cost to you for this service. I am doing this
for the same reason I created the Black Regiment directory. I want to
help connect patriot pastors--and now patriot businessmen--with their
local fellow patriots. As Benjamin Franklin so famously said, “We
must, indeed, all hang together, or most assuredly we shall all hang
And while we are supporting one another, let’s be sure to pray for
one another, because we are all going to need it.
