Welcome to 4CSG Survival and Preparedness; the home for 4CSG members of the Survival/Homesteading & Patriot communities.

The purpose of this site is to provide a forum where this issue may be freely discussed and explored and to provide a support group where members can actively interact with others who believe in freedom and the responsibilities that naturally come with it. Some of those responsibilities include preparing to survive by being more self-sufficient through homesteading practices so that we feel like we are better able to perform our patriotic duties. Although this website is new, the tradition of patriotism among members of the Christian Church is one with a long history. We have been taught that the United States was established under the direction of God for specific purposes relating to the freedom of all men. As Patriotic God fearing Americans, we understand the special relationship the Lord has with America and have been taught that we have a responsibility to honor and safeguard those freedoms with which we have been endowed. We recognize that it's our duty to protect and defend the Constitutional principles upon which this country was founded. This is as much a part of our responsibility, as our homes, our jobs and our church. Every Christian has spiritual obligations in these areas: his home, his church, his job and his citizenship responsibility. Each of these areas should receive consistent attention. Are we doing our duty in these important fields? What about our citizenship responsibility -- our obligation to safeguard our freedom and preserve the Constitution? May we as a free people face courageously the challenging responsibility, which faces us. "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." (Edmund Burke)

It is in this spirit that we embrace the Survival/Homesteading/Patriot community in America. For many, the image of the Survival/Homesteading/Patriot community movement is one of extremism, intolerance, racism and anti-government thought. I submit to you that, although these ideas exist, they represent a small and alienated faction. The great majority of Patriots in the United States are good, hard working, trustworthy people who share the spirit of freedom and the calling of the Minuteman. Without question, Thomas Paine explained it best when he wrote: "Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly: it is dearness only that gives everything its value. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed if so celestial an article as freedom should not be highly rated". We support the Constitution of the United States and recognize it as the supreme law of the land. Furthermore, we believe that supporting the Constitution also requires defending it against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Many of us, both Men and Women, have served honorably in the Armed Forces and have taken an oath to defend the Constitution, this obligation was not revoked upon our discharge. As Americans, we share this duty. But I declare to you, for what it may be worth, that it [the Constitution] is what Gladstone said it was, the greatest document ever struck off at a given time by the brain and purpose of man. A document which, according to my belief, the Lord himself inspired to be established, and should be maintained for the rights and protection of all men and women, according to just and holy principles, established by the hands of wise men who the Lord raised up for that purpose; and as the Lord said, this land was redeemed by the shedding of blood. I say to you that the price of liberty is and always has been blood, human blood, and if our liberties are lost, we shall never regain them except at the price of blood. They must not be lost! This belief was no doubt inspired by a quote from Thomas Jefferson who said, "The strongest reason for the People to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." This isn't an idea whose time has passed; it is as valid today as it ever was. We are faced with challenges that would have seemed factious not too many years past.

As members of the Survival/Homesteading/Patriot community, we see the actions being taken against our freedoms and we strongly denounce them much as the Minutemen who gathered at Lexington and Concord to face the Imperial might of England. This quote says it quite well: "Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom." John F. Kennedy There's no doubt that in order to preserve our Republic we must be willing and able to defend it. For this purpose, we are armed and have dedicated ourselves to the preservation of our right to keep and bear arms. Guns are our liberty teeth; they stand as an equalizer in the hands of all good people against the powers of evil.

We present no threat to those who honor their oaths of office, nor to those who honestly serve this country. Only those Politicians and Bureaucrats who knowingly conspire to usurp our liberties to live, work and worship as we choose, need be concerned. We fervently support and encourage all good men and women to Stockpile Food, Medical supplies, & Other provisions to be as self sufficient as possible & to carry and train with their firearms so they can protect their lives and to perpetuate the free agency of man.

We welcome the support of freedom loving organizations and people of every race, nationality, creed and religion.

 This site is dedicated to you so stay awhile and return often.
