RUBICON THREE Through the mist of time one of the great epigrammatical expressions that has come down to us through the ages is: "We have crossed the Rubicon!" It carries the commitment of courage, determination and the assumption that the future will be a success or the seeker of the goal could be destroyed. The United States has faced the possibility of destruction twice in its history. Rubicon One-The revolutionary war. Failure to win would have meant the execution of our founding fathers-the elimination of possibly the greatest aggregation of political philosophers ever assembled who were dedicated to the theory of personal liberty. Rubicon Two-occurred because of our Civil War-had it been lost by the north, what is now the U.S. on the world maps would very likely have become four or five independent nations or colonies of a European Power. Rubicon Three approaches. Foreign forces are scheming to undermine the independence of all nations by arrogating special powers to a one world government, starting with the authority for the UN to levy taxes, which if given, is the power to destroy sovereignty.
How we face our third Rubicon will determine the shape of the world for centuries to come.
