Welcome to Wake Up and Smell the Freedom. This website has been created for those who want to educate themselves on what it is to be an American. We cover the Constitution and how it pertains to American life, the political system, the ideas of personal freedom and personal liberty. Most can agree that the United States has lost its way. Only by educating ourselves and then becoming involved can we hope to restore our republic.
Just like coffee, our site comes in various strengths. It is suggested that you start with the lighter side of the education process. Take time to unlearn what you have been fed by the mainstream media. Get yourself a cup of coffee (or your drink of choice) and take it one tab at a time. The tabs are set up left to right with each tab’s information building on the one before it. For those who don't have time and have to take their coffee on the run, that's OK, we've got ya covered. Many of the lectures are downloadable files to upload to your Mp3 player for learning on the run.
We are only an email away if you need additional information or just want to chat about what you have read, heard or watched. Can't wait to discuss what you've learned? No problem, go to our Facebook Page and join to interact with others and get those brain cells a rubbin' together.
Once you have a good feel for the lighter side take a plunge into the stronger stuff and go to “THE DARK ROAST” link at the bottom. These articles and videos go further into what the Constitution means, deeper political thought and what you must do to help save our country and restore our republic.
To quote Thomas Jefferson:
“….whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government; that, whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, they may be relied on to set them right.”
**TECHNICAL STUFF** The videos on this website require that you have the latest version of the FLASH player installed on your computer. Should any of the videos not play, please go to Adobe’s website and install the newest version of the FLASH plugin.
