Our nation's problems are
many problems now confronting America are the direct
result of VIOLATIONS of the Constitution. The unending
Iraq War, the declining dollar & skyrocketing oil prices,
unchecked immigration, Government telephone and Internet
wiretapping, etc. are ALL the result of
lawless, unconstitutional acts of the U.S. Government.
They are not debatable public policy issues.
3. A Profound Solution is already in the LAW:
A profound, but little known Right
that was first articulated in the Magna Carta
that was signed in 1215
last ten words of the First Amendment are far more
powerful then we have ever been taught.
Academic research since 1986 has made clear the Right to
Petition for Redress is NOT, as we have been erroneously led
to believe, a redundant statement of the Right of Free
the “capstone Right.” What good are all those other Rights
(such as the right to a Government that does not apply the
armed forces of the United States in hostilities overseas
without a congressional declaration of war) , freedom of
speech and freedom of the press if we can’t hold Government
accountable to the Constitution through a Right of Redress?
Right of Redress is, in fact, the individual exercise
of "Popular Sovereignty." It distinguishes our form of
government from every other that has EVER existed
across the vast span of human history.
The Right of Redress is an individual, UNALIENABLE
Right possessed by every man, simply because he lives.
THIS RIGHT DEFINES WHO IS MASTER
AND WHO IS SERVANT.
4. Here's what the Founders said sitting
as the First Congress in 1774:
“If money is wanted by Rulers who have in any manner
oppressed the People,
they may retain it
until their grievances are redressed,
and thus peaceably procure relief, without trusting to
or disturbing the public tranquility.”
Journals of the Continental Congress, 1:105-113
5. 1776 Revolutionary War was fought over ignored
Petitions for Redress
Declaration of Independence itself is largely a recital of
Petitions for Redress that were ignored by King George. The
"Capstone Grievance" cited in the Declaration is the
language that resolutely established the final moral and
legal justification for violent Revolution:
“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for
Redress in the most humble terms:
Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by
repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus
marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to
be the ruler of a free people.” Declaration of
6. We CANNOT elect our way out of tyranny.
Profound problems require profound solutions. It is time
for the People to reclaim their divine heritage and exercise
the profound powers we enjoy as the true Sovereigns of our
Republic. The unalienable Right to Petition for Redress is
the means by which "We the People" will peacefully restore
our Constitutional Republic and Government OF, BY and FOR
NOW THAT IS SOMETHING TO CELEBRATE THIS JULY 4th!
OTHER VOLUNTEER/PUBLICITY TIPS:
appear on camera, or if there is any chance of media video
or photo coverage of your local Service event, please wear
appropriate clothing. Your clothing choices need to
broadcast the professional and serious nature and
implications of the 6/30 event.
Speaking: Choose your words carefully. Think
a second or two before speaking. The media lives for
"sound-bites." Use the "talking
one-page "Revolution" flyer or your copy of the
Notice and Demand letter as you need to hammer
home the important points. Remember, even if you are
recorded or quoted, the odds are that only a very small
portion of your interview will actually be quoted or
it easy for the media to write our story. Bring extra copies
one-page flyer or the
Press Release to distribute to the media.
Consider bringing a printed copy or two of the
Petitions for Redress.
Remember to ALWAYS point media representatives back to the
