Articles of Freedom: The New Website

The R3volution continues . . .

I am proud to annouce that the Articles of Freedom Website has now been launched and that I had a teeny, tiny part to play in the drama! One of the two webmasters launched it from my kitchen--and in our excitement and because we were distracted--I forgot to feed him!

A sorry come-down for the Mother of the R3volution NM.

The Articles of Freedom represent the work of the Continental Congress 2009, and several versions have been distributed on the web. Each of the 15 Articles present the facts about one Constitutional violation that our servant government has used to increase its power at our expense. The We the People Foundation, over years of activism, has established a record of formal Petitions for Redress of Grievances for each of these 15 violations, and our employees in all branches of government have refused to respond to any of them. Therefore three delegates from each of 48 states-- Americans from all walks of life--met together to created a record of these violations, and moving beyond a time of petition, have issued instructions for how to redress the violations to all branches of government, federal and state. In case those instructions are not followed, and in case our servant government mistakes our intention, we have also made recomendations to the People of the United States, in their several sovereign States, for peaceful civic action to hold government accountable to the Constitution.

These civic actions can be effective if a mass movement of between 2.5% and 5% of the population engages in them together, in order to hold the government accountable. This has been the case in every place and time where the People have held their governments accountable.

If you desire liberty for yourselves and your children; and if you have been concerned about the concentration of power into the hands of venal politicians, who "have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our peopel and eat out their substance" (Declaration of Independence), then go to the website on the widget at the top of this blog, read the Articles of Freedom and sign the pledge to take action together. And if you are a patriot--prove it by reading the Plan of Action for April 19th, 2010. And spread the word. Do your part to restore Liberty and Constitutional governance. Then you can look your children in the eye when they ask you what you did to protect their inheritance of Liberty.

It was great to meet you and to talk with you and Bruce at Chili's this weekend. I have a couple of questions though... What precisely do you mean when you say hold the government accountable?... they're not and refuse to be...secondly,I believe we should srrest and try those in congress for high crimes and misdemeanors.( If not outright treason). Do you agree?

Hi, Max,

It was also good to meet and talk to you!

Holding someone accountable begins with apprising them of the problem--this was done over the past 15 years with the Petitions for Redress of Grievances. However, it does not end there.

When someone persists in a mistaken action, those in authority--in this case the People of the United States--then have the duty to enforce that accountability. the beginning of that enforcement is to instruct them on how to get back on the straight and narrow. This was done in the Articles of Freedom.

Although we did give them instructions and we will give them 40 days to change their behavior (as in the Magna Carta), we do not expect a response.

When accountability is still not achieved, our next step is to withdraw our support--physical and moral from our government. In order to do this, we must have a solid 3-5% of the people withdrawing support at the same time--a national strike if you will.Tje first step is to get everyone who signs the A of F to file an extension on their taxes. But there are other steps as well--civic actions such as a National Strike--which is also in the planning phases.

There is no question that we are nowhere near ready for any actions of enforcement more forceful than these--but these will be enough to deal with for the next 6 months or so. At least we hope we have that long.

With respect to the idea of arresting public officials en masse for breach of oath of office, I think we must first get working Citizen's Grand Juries in each jurisdiction, and then know what we would do with the officials in question. We are not ready to do so otherwise.

I hope this helps clarify for you what is being planned in the near future. I leave it to your wisdom to determine the steps that will follow.
