Biblical History of One World Order

 Biblical History – Based on Tom’s talk on 7/2/2016

One world order goes back to the beginning (Genesis 11:1-9).  But, God confused the language and spread them out… yet, there are still those who strive to control the entire world.  This battle is a spiritual one.  Tom started with Biblical prophecy (Dan 2:27-45); tied it to events in the Bible and events that are now well documented history.

He then tied that to why our…

American Community Survey (ACS)

West Suburban Patriots is an independent TEA Party organization – part of the nationwide Taxed-Enough-Already movement.  We are a large group that is frequently in the public eye, and so it is not unusual for people to reach out to us when something doesn’t seem right and they do not know where else to turn. 

Recently, we heard from an individual who received the very intrusive “American Community Survey” (ACS). She wanted to know if we had ever heard of it (Yes) and if we could tell…

West Suburban Patriots is an independent group of concerned citizens.  We are active in Dupage County and beyond. We spontaneously began in response to the United States government accelerating it's 100-year incremental descent into tyranny and losing sight of the fact that it serves at the will of "we the people". The principles of this movement are Fiscal Responsibility (reduce spending & lower taxes), Constitutionally Limited Government, and Free Markets.

West Suburban Patriot's mission is to attract, educate, organize, and mobilize our fellow citizens to secure public policy consistent with our three core values of Fiscal Responsibility, Constitutionally Limited Government and Free Markets.  

West Suburban Patriots vision is to restore the United States of America to the constitutional republic as conceived and created by our Founding Fathers in the US Constitution. 

Fiscal Responsibility by government honors and respects the freedom of the individual to spend the money that is the fruit of their own labor.  Runaway deficit spending as we now see in Washington D.C. compels us to take action as the increasing national debt is a grave threat to our national sovereignty and the personal and economic liberty of future generations.  Illinois’ unfunded liabilities are equally reckless.

Constitutionally Limited Government: We regard the Constitution of the United States to be the supreme law of the land. We believe that it is possible to know the original intent of the government our founders set forth, and stand in support of that intent. Like the founders, we support states' rights for those powers not expressly stated in the Constitution. As the government is of the people, by the people and for the people, we support the personal liberty of the individual, within the rule of law.

Free Markets: A free market is the economic consequence of personal liberty. The founders believed that personal and economic freedom were indivisible. Our current government's interference distorts the free market and inhibits the pursuit of individual and economic liberty. Therefore, we support a return to the free market principles on which this nation was founded and oppose government intervention into the operations of private business.

Candidates and elected officials are welcome to attend our meetings. We will always introduce them and give them a few minutes, normally during the last half hour.  We encourage candidates to stay afterwards for one-on-one discussions.  details
