Sons of Liberty Flag, c.1765


The Sons of Liberty
were started in Boston, Massachusetts in protest of the Stamp Act of 1765. The Sons of Liberty also opposed the Townshend Acts, the Tea Tax, and any form of "Taxation without Representation".

Some of the more famous Sons of Liberty included it's leader, the "Father of American Independence", Samuel Adams, Patrick Henry, John Hancock, James Otis, Paul Revere, and Doctor Joseph Warren , who was killed at Bunker Hill.



The Boston Tea Party

Here is a song written by the Sons of Liberty on December 16, 1773, the night of the Boston Tea Party. Some say Samuel Adams himself had a part in the writing of the song, others credit Paul Revere, who was a major contributor to the event, but no one knows for sure.

Modern America: American Sons of Liberty


American Sons of Liberty - Keeping the Tradition!

Our Statement:

           During the Stamp Act of 1765, while the American Colonies were under the rule of the British Crown, a group of Patriots were organized under the name The Sons of Liberty to protest the Stamp tax. The Sons of Liberty were the first formal group organized in the Colonies. While the Officials of England suspected them of plotting to overthrow the government, the Sons insisted upon an allegiance to the King and were upholding the Constitution against the usurpation of royal British officials, and did not see violence as a means of political influence.

           In the spirit of the example laid before us by our brave Forefathers, I see the urgent need for the return of The Sons of Liberty. Just as the Colonial Sons pledged allegiance to their king, the American Sons of Liberty pledge allegiance to America and Her Constitution. (Not to be confused with any pledge to the government or the people and/or organizations within).

           The Constitution of the United States of America is in need of a strong people to uphold it. The Constitution is under attack, a usurpation of government officials, lawmakers, media, and a growing number of ignorant people who know nothing of the foundations of their own country, and seem as though they could care less.

           It is, therefore, the American Sons of Liberty's purpose to educate the American people about their Constitution, their history, and the current situations in America that are threatening the Liberties and Rights of America and Her people
. And it is our mission to "Maintain and Preserve American Liberty."

 

A Modern Day Tea Party


Our Great Traditions, Live On...

We all remember the Boston Tea Party!

On the night of December 16, 1773, patriots headed by Samuel Adams dumped 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbor, thus arguably marking the most famous act of political dissent in American history.

That bold patriotic spirit personifies our Americanism.

Inherited through the generations, this spirit lives on. Acts of patriotism today, though maybe not as famous as the Boston Tea Party, exemplify that indeed Americanism is alive and well.

Most recently, under the name of Sons of Liberty, a protest was held at the Jefferson Memorial in Washington, D.C. to oppose Al Gore's bid for the Presidency.

Unfortunately, poor timing and media resources prevented the protest from being reported. Nevertheless, it was an event that will be cherished for a lifetime, with the only regret that all of you weren't there. Though the Election of 2000 is far behind us and uniquely ensconced in the history books, I thought you would enjoy reading this short summary of the event in this publication and photo I have sent exclusively to the American Sons of Liberty.

With only minor editing, this is the actual story presented to FOX news, U.P.I, and the Associated Press of Washington, D.C.

The photograph is a night shot of the Jefferson Memorial, D.C., taken during the protest activities.

And just in case you were wondering, the Betsy Ross flag shown at the base of Jefferson was my little addition...

Liberty,

Official Press Release:

Thursday November 2, 2000
Protest At The Jefferson Monument
Washington, D.C.

Anti-Gore protestor of the Patriotic Society "Sons of Liberty" broke into and blanketed the Jefferson Monument Thursday morning with tens of thousands of mock one hundred dollar bills.

The protest stems from Al Gore's highly criticized 1996 appearance at a fundraiser held at the Hsi Lai Buddhist Temple in Hacienda Heights, California.

Though Al Gore avoided an Independent Council investigation for his participation at the temple, Gore's long time fundraiser Maria Hsia (pronounced "Shaw") who was in attendance with the Vice President at the Temple event was convicted on five (5) felony counts in a D.C. Federal Court on March 2.

Information also circulated that a U.S. government agency had determined Maria Hsia to be a communist agent. Sparks flew when the chairman of the RNC then began publicly referring to Ms. Hsia as a communist agent, which in turn, her lawyers threatened a civil suit against the chairman. Though Gore originally denied the event was a fundraiser, he later admitted he knew it was financially related.

The mock one hundred dollar bills used in the protest had numerous alterations, most noticeably Al Gore's portrait in place of Benjamin Franklin's. In addition, the name "Maria Hsia" was placed above Treasurer of the United States, and the familiar disclaimer, "This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private" has been altered to read, "This note is not legal tender for political contributions." The back of the bill contains information about Gore's visit to the temple, criticism of Attorney General Janet Reno for not appointing an independent council, and Maria Hsia's felony conviction and communist government affiliation:

Protest member of the Sons of Liberty, J. Russell Moody sends this statement:

"In the final hours before this momentous election, a reminder of the Vice President's actions should be prudently measured against the office he seeks to hold by way of our individual conscience.

Having said that, I personally find it very disturbing that any person who attends a felonious fundraiser at a Buddhist temple, accompanied by a convicted felon an an agent of a communist government may very well serve as our Nation's President."
