"Is life so dear or peace so sweet as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God. I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death." Patrick Henry
Hi, I’m Tom Allen and I was born into a large family whose main credo was God, Country and Family. After graduating from High School in Jellico,Tn , I , like most of my brothers , joined the military.
Serving four years active duty in the Marine Corps only served to strengthen my family’s legacy. Leaving the military, I became employed by Lockheed Aircraft where I served in both an hourly and salaried status for 34 years. Having helped produced the C-130, C-141, C-5 and the Jetstar, I have a deep love for both aircraft and our brave men and women who fly and maintain them. While at Lockheed I took an approximately two year tour of foreign duty to Iran and I have seen what some of the Mideast looks like and have some insight into how they think. They don’t think much of us!
I’m not nearly as good looking as Dave but at age 75, that’s to be expected. And I can read a lot of you folk’s mind, thinking that we’re just a couple of old geezer’s with an axe to grind. Not so! We’re trying to start a revolution in the way our country is being ruined. Yes, that’s “ run” with an “ I “ inserted. This is not a call to arms but rather an effort to awaken the “silent majority “ and alert those who are unaware to the dangers that our nation faces. I have two beautiful and sweet young granddaughters for whom I would like to preserve our way of life and if possible to make it better.
We need a new group of senators and congressmen whose vow to uphold the constitution and represent the people is foremost in their mind rather than our current “pols” who are out to line their pockets. Not to mention the fact that we could use a decent president with a spine rather than one who appears to be examining the shoelaces of every foreign dignitary that he meets . We could also use some supreme court justices who support the constitution rather than make up the law to fit their personal wants and needs.
Dave mentioned some of our nations founders who were his heroes. These are mine also, but I would like to add a few more. There’s Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett and John Wayne. Boone was a great frontiersman, Crockett was a frontiersman and statesman who fought and died for what he belived in at the siege of the Alamo. I believe it was Crockett’s motto to “ Be sure you’re right , then go ahead “! How about that? “Pilgrim“!

THESE COLORS MAY FADE BUT THEY NEVER RUN!
I'm Dave! The youngest and obviously, the better looking of the Allen boys!
Here is a little bit of information about me and the passion I feel about America; the land I love!
My philosophy is simple; "Be who you are, say what you feel...those that matter don't mind...those that mind don't matter"!
When I reached the ripe old age of seventeen, like most of the male members of my family in every generation since the founding of the "Greatest Nation On The Planet", I joined the military! In my case it was the US Army from 1961 - 1964.
After the military, for almost four decades of my life I worked as a computer programmer/analyst. The last twenty-three of that here in Mesa, Arizona, for McDonnell Douglas/Boeing Helicopter Company where they build the most battle worthy helicopter in the world; the "Apache"! I'm now retired and still living here in the "Valley of the Sun" near Phoenix.
Especially over the last 8 years, In my opinion we have been under attack by our own government in this Country! Our new POTUS Donald J. Trump is working hard to bring this country back, but needs our help and support! We can support him best by urging Congress to get off their dead asses and enact the POTUS's agenda to Make America Great Again! Our purpose for this website is to "Wake Up America" and make them aware! I hope we can count on your support to help save our Republic and restore Constitutional Government to The United States of America!
One of my favorite quotes is from a famous American Revolution era Patriot that goes like this:
"It is the responsibility of the patriot to protect his country from its government." ~ Thomas Paine
And I have every intention of doing just that!
When I joined the Army in 1961; to paraphrase what someone once said, "I took the oath to protect and defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic and wrote a blank check to my Country, up to and including my life, if necessary"!
Fifty some years later, in 2017 my active duty service has long since ended but, the oath I took and the check I wrote are still in tact! Trust me, the oath still applies and the check is still good! I fully intent to honor them both!
It is my sincere desire to see the current government encroachment on our freedoms resolved and ended through peaceful means! It is still within our grasp; if we all get involved and work to bring that about!
I hope that our Country will never again have to witness a violent, devastating bloody internal struggle that pits neighbor against neighbor and brother against brother! That would be a horrible ordeal for our country to endure!
However, I was born free, I have lived free for seventy + years and I fully intend to die free! If that means dying with a gun in my hand while protecting and defending our Constitution; so be it! I have zero tolerance for dictators and I can't even imagine living under one! I have no intentions of living under one!
Thank you for visiting and please stay tuned! Our Country needs your help!
