1. An Amendment to Stop Judicial Activism

Judicial Legislation: An Oligarchy’s Infiltration of the Republic

“When…power is lodged in the hands of men independent of the people, and of their representatives, and who are not, constitutionally, accountable for their opinions, no way is left to control them but with a high hand and an outstretched arm.” In his Anti-Federalist Papers, New York judge Robert Yates prophesied the futility of preventing a body of unelected judges from usurping legislative power from the people and the state governments. After nearly 228 years, the United States has witnessed the fulfillment of Yates’ ominous oracle and the degradation of the Founders’ view of federalism. Through a careful examination of the judiciary’s originally enumerated authority, the transgressions of an ambitious collection of pseudo-legislators are revealed, ripe for amendment, so that constitutional equilibrium may be restored.

The Heritage Guide to the Constitution defines the “judicial Power” enumerated in Article III as, “neutrally deciding a case by interpreting the law and applying it to the facts, then rendering a final and binding judgment.” However, judges cannot simply attach their own opinion onto a decision which carries the force of law. In two landmark cases, Marbury v Madison and Cohens v Virginia, Chief Justice John Marshall stresses the duty of the judiciary to always interpret and apply the law in favor of the Constitution. “It is apparent,” he writes in Marbury, “that the framers of the constitution contemplated that instrument, as a rule for the government of the courts…Why otherwise does it direct the judges to take an oath to support it?” In Cohens, speaking to the power of the courts to nullify unconstitutional acts of Congress, Marshall notes that, “whenever a particular statute contravenes the constitution, it will be the duty of the judicial tribunals to adhere to the latter, and disregard the former.” Furthermore, he carefully explains, “It can be of no weight to say, that the courts…may substitute their own pleasure to the constitutional intentions of the legislature…The courts must declare the sense of the law; and if they should be disposed to exercise will instead of judgment, the consequence would equally be the substitution of their pleasure to that of the legislative body.” Prior precedent clearly prohibits judges from ruling contrarily to the “Supreme Law of the Land.” In checking unconstitutional actions of the legislature, the court may not use its authority to subvert the people’s will expressed in the Constitution.

Despite prior precedent that deplores a judge’s use of the bench as an assembly, judicial history is contaminated with blatant violations of Article I, Section I of the Constitution: “All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress…” Ignoring original intent, the court has, at times, used its authority not to defend the Constitution, but to advance a political agenda. For example, in Griswold v Connecticut, the Supreme Court invented a “right to privacy,” which ultimately led to the legalization of sodomy and abortion. In the intentionally complex opinion, Justice William Douglas reflects the strategy of his partner, ACLU lawyer Melvin Wulf, who advocated for applying, “in a general sort of way,” principles of similar cases which should be “perhaps even extended a little bit” to fit the present case. In this way, justices, according to Yates, “mould the government into almost any shape they please.” Other examples of this practice contaminate the Supreme Court’s record. In Everson v Board of Education, the court misconstrued Jefferson’s “wall of separation” between church and state to ban “the free exercise of religion” from public places, though it did not cite precedent to justify the decision. Recently, in Natl. Fed. of Ind. Bus. v Sebelius five justices interpreted the word “penalty” to mean “tax,” thereby legalizing Obamacare and the intrusion of the federal government into the private sector. The most explicit example of judicial legislation is an infamous successor to Griswold, Roe v Wade, in which the Supreme Court struck down a Texas statute banning abortion. At the conclusion of his opinion, Justice Blackmun establishes specific criteria governing abortion in each trimester, essentially writing the abortion laws for an entire nation himself. From the due process clause, the controlling language in Roe, Blackmun and six other judges somehow extract detailed rules for conducting abortions and an unfounded excuse to murder innocent children. Roe and the aforementioned cases serve to demonstrate the subtle tyranny with which the judiciary controls the lives of US citizens and expose the unconstitutional subversion of legislative power from Congress. Such overreach must be stopped.

The Framers, aware of the lust with which men seek power, provided a remedy for unlawful confiscations of sovereignty—the amendment process, as found in Article V of the Constitution. Mark Levin, a nationally syndicated conservative radio host, in his book appropriately titled, The Liberty Amendments, proposes a pragmatic resolution to the judicial tyranny under which the people and their state governments have suffered. The amendment reads, “Upon three-fifths vote of the several state legislatures, the States may override a majority opinion rendered by the Supreme Court.” Under the present constitution, court decisions are unable to be remanded. As Yates warns, “No errors [judges] may commit can be corrected by any power above them…” Levin’s amendment would grant to the state legislatures the ability to check the judiciary and limit federal encroachment. Considering that, in Griswold, Everson, and Roe the Supreme Court struck down state statutes, a supermajority legislative override would restore the important balance of federalism between the national and state governments. Levin rightly observes that, “By adding the override, for the first time justices will know that their most significant majority opinions may not solely be judged by history, but by the people who must live under them…”

Influential philosopher and advocate for the separation of powers, Charles Secondat de Montesquieu, said that of the three powers—the legislature, executive, and judiciary—“the judiciary is next to nothing.” Certainly he and the Founders did not expect a branch, whose enumerated purpose is to neutrally interpret the law, to morph into a comprehensive source of power. John Adams famously explained that the American republic is “a government of laws, and not of men.” If this is true, then the Constitution should be the fountainhead of all derived authority, not an assembly of five unelected judges. The people are secure in their rights only when justices rule in favor of the “Supreme Law of the Land.” To maintain such security, a workable check must be installed to curb judicial legislation and eliminate the oligarchy which has infiltrated the republic.

2. Third term for Obama

Due to the lack of trust and confidence the American people have in the current presidential candidates, we the people would like to amend the Twenty Second amendment to allow the current sitting president to run for a third term.

3. Stop gun control bills from passing to law

The Obama administration is trying to pass more gun control laws before the President's term is over, signing small bills into laws here and there.

Each time a bill is passed it is creating more infringements on our constitutional Second Amendment rights.

In order to stop these infringements we need to show Washington that we see what they are doing and that it is wrong.

4. CHANGE THE UNCONSTITUTIONAL SAMOA LAWYERS AND LEGAL PRACTICE ACT 2014

As Samoan citizens living in New Zealand, Australia, USA and other countries, we continue to maintain our connections with our lands, family titles and ties to Samoa.

OUR COMMITMENT TO SAMOA is not only by words but by our Deeds and Financial remittances to our families and churches.

In the Annual Report for the Financial Year 2011-2012 by the Central Bank of Samoa (p10), it said the following:

"Private remittances increased a further 6 percent to $392.2 million in 2011/12 (on top of a 6 percent recovery in 2010/11), underpinned by a 29 percent increase in remittances for households as well as a 7 percent (or $2.5 million) growth in funds for Churches. Families remained as the main recipients of funds, with its share edging up 2 percentage points to 75 percent, followed by Churches with 10% share. The main sources of household remittances were NEW ZEALAND, AUSTRALIA and the USA with shares of 37 percent, 32 percent and 20 percent respectively..."

In Central Bank of Samoa Bulletin of September 2014, it said at page 10:

"The gross inflow of private remittances went up by 16.7 percent to $94.8 percent million largely due to increased funds for "households" and church. The main sources of remittances were from NEW ZEALAND AND AUSTRALIA..."

The Lawyers and Legal Practice Act 2014 violates our rights under Article 15 of The Constitution of Samoa to be equal before the law and entitled to equal protection under the law.

5. Implement legislation that limits excessive campaign contributions

The wealthy 1% influence election decisions through their immense wealth. The presence of colossal contributions funneled through Super PACs, social welfare organizations, politically active nonprofit organizations and unions violate numerous articles of the U.S. Constitution that proclaim officials must be elected by the people.

The renowned saying "We the People" is being contorted into "We the Corporations".

Political and economic favors are traded between wealthy benefactors and political officials.

The wealthy 1% use the candidates as puppets while they pull the strings. If we continue down this path our once strong nation will be reduced to one that enacts legislation to solely benefits big business.

6. Support Al Carroll's "A Proposed New Constitution"

If it were up to the American public, the following solutions would have become law many decades, even half a century or more, before today:

1. Abolishing the Electoral College.

2. Ending the buying of elections.

3. Limiting election campaigns to three months.

4. Ending wars quickly in Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Each war continued over half a decade after the American public wanted to get out.

5. Reforming the office of vice president, widely regarded with contempt by most, and producing candidates that even most voters of the same party as the presidential candidate did not want.

6. Ending corporate welfare and other wasteful spending.

7. Ending most foreign military aid, and support for tyrants and dictators around the world.

8. Limiting the power of the Supreme Court.

9. Ending the political monopoly of wealthy elites.

10. Guaranteeing privacy from government intrusion.

Each of these proposals have widespread bipartisan support and are hugely popular across the political spectrum by great majorities. But none of these proposals have majority support among elected political elites, economic elites, or the leadership of either party.

The constitution itself is the biggest barrier to solving these problems. Not one of these problems have been, or ever could have been, quickly solved, precisely because the constitution makes it difficult. Most of these problems require a constitutional amendment, something made deliberately long and difficult by the founders. A few of these could be solved temporarily by ordinary laws, which could then be easily overturned next election.

So why not go to the root of these problems? Why not a new constitution? Support history professor Al Carroll's A Proposed New Constitution at https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/614023

7. Allow the sale of firearms on Facebook

Facebook has been a much safer and more consistent place to sell items than craigslist since the sell tab was released.

It is legal to sell firearms in a person to person transaction at an FFL in the majority of states.

Facebook should not bend to the governments pressure to disallow the sale and discussion of firearms under the first and second amendments.

8. Collectif Coalition des Algériens de l'Etranger

Non à la médiocrité politique.
Non à la discrimination institutionnalisée!

Il suffit de lire la Constitution proposée au peuple algérien pour avoir une idée globale sur l'intérêt réel accordé à la Communauté Algérienne établie à l'Etranger et une idée précise sur celles et ceux qui tiennent entre leurs mains le destin de tout un peuple.

9. It is Time for the States to Utilize the Compact Clause to Protect Themselves Against Illegal Immigration

It is Time for the States to Utilize the Compact Clause to Protect Themselves Against Illegal Immigration

Article 1, Section 10, Clause 3 of the United States Constitution

No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.

As the world watches in horror as ISIS kills, maims, and terrorizes the people of France, Belgium, and Russia, as the U.S. state department issues a world wide travel alert until February 2016, as the FBI and DHS issue warnings to the American people that the United States is under high alert for a terror attack on the homeland, nothing is being done about our open porous borders. It is absolutely beyond comprehension.

We face a crisis in our country today. Wide swaths of open land on our borders are literally open doors for terrorists; we are inviting them in to threaten our communities and kill our citizens. Due to this emergence it serves Americans well to be aware of what options the United States Constitution offers them via the States. Article 1 Section 10 Clause 3 may provide the answer. Your representative may not even be aware of this lawful loophole.

The clause states that “No State shall, without Consent of Congress… enter into any agreement or Compact with another State… or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit delay.”

Under the current dire circumstances, it is time for the governors of the border states to utilize the Compact Clause and take action since the federal government is doing absolutely nothing. To focus on the southern border, California, Arizona, New Mexico, and Texas are currently being “invaded” and are certainly in “imminent Danger.” Thus, they can take action to seal up the border, send in the militia, send in armed guards or take whatever action they deem necessary to prevent the illegal and dangerous movements into their states. The compact can be between as little as two states. Thus, if California doesn’t want to join in they do not have to do so, but Arizona, New Mexico and Texas can be pro-active.

The compact clause states that Congress must consent to the compact – unless – actually invaded or in imminent danger. The southern states in America are most definitely being invaded. ISIS is surging. The illegal immigration crisis is escalating while the federal government is cowering in a corner – afraid of political consequences, or better yet encouraging them. Shame on them. It is time for the States to act and this clause gives them the legitimacy to do so.

Citizens awake! The danger is here More danger is coming. With the newfound knowledge of the Compact Clause - which allows states to defend themselves in times of invasion or imminent danger - calls must be made to your governors, and representatives on the state level, urging them to take action. Be wary of attempts to downplay the legitimacy of the Compact Clause. The fact that states can enter into a compact to protect themselves in times of invasion or imminent danger according to Article 1 Section 10 Clause 3 should not be distorted by political agenda and political legalese.

Our founders deliberately empowered the local and state governments giving them permission to rise when danger presented itself. We the people must act. Google your state representatives and email them, call them, sign the Compact Clause petition. Do the same with your governor. It is time for the states to protect themselves. It is time for us to demand it.

10. Support Prayer/Contemplation before Canadian Civic Council Meetings

The Supreme Court of Canada recently ruled (April 15) that opening and closing council meetings in Saguenay Quebec with a Catholic prayer violated Quebec's provincial human rights act.

Edmonton has a worldwide reputation over 35 years of opening City Council meetings with a prayer or chant or musical presentation from one of the 13 + various faith traditions found in this community of 1.3 million residents.

This long-standing inclusive practice strengthens our community by building an environment to foster respect and understanding for Councillors, City Staff and meeting attendees. Ideas for the future include inviting rep. from the atheist/agnostic community to offer a reflection, moments of silence after any/all contributions to create a positive atmosphere of clarity, gratitude and mindfulness . ( for the liberties and freedoms we enjoy as Canadians)

It is my understanding that the purpose of The Charter of Rights and Freedoms is Tolerance, Freedom and Equality. It applies to corporations as well as individuals.

The Charter states that "a law will be found to restrict expression if it has the effect of frustrating the pursuit of truth, participation in the community, or individual self fulfillment and human flourishing" ( Limiting the Right )

The Charter ( 27 ) "This charter shall be interpreted in a manner consistent with the Preservation and enhancement of the multicultural heritage of Canada."

According to the Edmonton Journal "City lawyers want Edmonton councillors to temporarily cancel the prayers that start their meetings for fear the practice is unconstitutional". The April 28 agenda calls for a motion to not have a prayer.

11. Duluthians Believe that Money Is Not Free Speech

This effort is being made to provide Duluth residents an opportunity to voice their opinion about the damaging effects, to our political process, to our democracy, of huge amounts of unaccounted for money being infused into our election process since multinational corporate money was declared to be legally the same as an individual person’s right to free speech and since multinational corporations, even foreign multinational corporations, were declared to be identical, in the eyes of the law, as an individual person.

Since Citizens United, in 2010, the people have become less, and less, in control of our election process as their voices, and their freedom of speech, are being drowned out by Dark Money and Super PAC money.

We must have transparency in our political process.

We must get our country back into the hands of the people!

12. America Needs You ASAP! The Iranian Deal Must Be Checked By Article II, Section II, Clause II - Demand It! Deal To Be Reached By March 24 - By Janine Turner & Juliette Turner

Here are our thoughts as to why we believe this petition is urgently important.
----Janine Turner & Juliette Turner

Your ancestry and the Founding Fathers feared the unchecked autocracy of a king, a tyrant, a dictator—or even an American president—that allowed one man to risk, and possibly ruin, the safety, liberty, and sovereignty of the people. They not only believed but knew first hand that fallible human weakness inherent in a leader, made ruthless by the quest for power and unquenchable vanity, could and would leave the people vulnerable and violated if left unchecked.

The Founding Fathers left a way to check and balance such tyrannical behavior. It was simply and specifically written in America’s founding document, the United States Constitution. Yet, this world acclaimed and historically proven document is only viable if you insist it be. If no resistance is met then silent, slippery usurpations blend into precedents upon which Presidents prey.

One such violation is happening before your very eyes—the current Iranian negotiations and impending deal. This “deal,” a treaty by another name, is supposed to be read, checked, debated, and vetted by your representatives in the United States Senate. Article II, Section II, Clause II of the Constitution states, “He (President) shall have power, by and with the advice and Consent of the Senate, to make treaties, provided two-thirds present concur.” In other words, the President cannot make a deal with another country and impose it upon you without your approval which flows through your duly elected Senator.

President Obama, however, is banking on the hope that you, and the majority of the American people, do not know the United States Constitution. Apathetic ignorance is the trump card which enables him to slide the Iranian deal into effect without being accountable to anyone.

My friends, this action, no matter what the precedent or the title of the deal, is a blatant infringement upon your democratic rights and the results could be disastrous – literally. Both President Obama and his administration will argue that the “deal” is technically not a “treaty.” (Merriam Webster defines the word treaty, “an official agreement that is made between two or more countries or groups.”) The Obama administration deceptively calls the negotiations the “Iranian deal,” even though it is “an official agreement that is being made between two or more countries” – the United States, Russia, China, Britain, France & Germany and Iran.

Alexander Hamilton in Federalist 69, which defines Article II, Section II, Clause II, refers to treaties as such that involve peace, commerce, alliance and every other description. The definition of the Iranian deal certainly falls into these categories.

President Obama’s unilateral attempt to execute the impending “Iranian deal” upon you without approval of the Senate is deplorable and apocalyptically dangerous. Even more stunning is the lack of revolt by the press, the people, and the Congress. Everyone’s focus is on the contents of the deal and the implications of the deal, not on how to stop the deal from being implemented.

Everyone except for Senator Lindsey Graham. Senator Graham is putting forth a bill that insists on the Iranian deal being subjected to an up or down vote in the Senate. Though I respect and admire Senator Lindsey Graham immensely and applaud him for doing so, there are two flaws to this method: a) it is not necessary – Senate approval is already a law under our United States Constitution; b) it allows the President to veto the bill, which then paralyzes debate, approval, and recourse.

The mechanism already exists: Article II, Section II, Clause II. It simply has to be enforced. No excuse or ready precedent or supposed air tight definitive can usurp the due protection you are entitled by this current Constitutional law of the land. Only your silence can accomplish this. Stand up and take back your voice. You have the right. You have the law. You have the opportunity. Call your Senator today. Insist that the Constitutional law be followed: that the Iranian deal stand the scrutiny of the Senate as prescribed in Article II, Section II, Clause II.

Facebook, Twitter, e-mail your friends. Your time has come. Petition. You must not forfeit your rights, your safety - your Constitution - because you have succumbed to the abetted belief that you can make no difference. Ring the warning bell. Be a Paul Revere.

Be a part of the collective wisdom of the people. Americans rule together; Americans must be heard. Your time is now. Patrick Henry says it best,

"They tell us sir that we are weak – unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have us bound hand and foot?"

Rally for your rights and for the enforcement of Article II, Section II, Clause II – before America’s enemies are at your door step.

13. RedHanded Campaign

The Redhanded Campaign has put into a publication official documentation that proves law enforcement officials are breaking the law before Grand juries and that prosecutors are aiding & abetting the criminal conduct and that members of the judiciary are covering it up.

14. Boycott all movie theaters that refuse to show the movie entitled "The Interview"

"The Interview", a movie produced by Sony will not be shown because there is no movie theater in the United States that will show it according to Michael Lynton CEO of Sony Pictures.

Movie theaters have been threatened by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un and have decided out of fear to not show Movie. Has this great nation become a nation of cowards?

Which group of fanatics will tell the United Sates what to hear or see next?

It is not the movie that is important but the first crack in our democracy and our first amendment that is important.

Charlie Chaplan was not afraid of Adolph Hitler when he made "The Great Dictator" and it is shown till this day.

15. Drill Baby, Drill

A minority of extreme environmentalists have initiated a petition to prevent the bringing of energy jobs to the coastal area of South Carolina. Their voices threaten the will of the 77% majority of the people of this state.

South Carolina has the ability to enter a boom economic period with the advent of new off shore drilling, with the environment being maintained and improved.

Energy production can and does work hand in hand with a clean environment.

Don't let the doom and gloom naysayers stifle your voice, economic well being and future prosperity. What they don't tell you, it's not just about cheaper gas and energy independence. It's also about the everyday products dependent upon petrochemicals. Everything from your daily vitamins, medicines, clothing, kitchenware, furniture, appliances, electronics and so much more! There is barely an item you encounter in your daily life that was not produced with a petrochemical. Yes, even your smart phone and iPad.

Sign the petition to bring energy jobs to South Carolina.

It is understood that:

The United States of America must achieve energy self sufficiency and reduction in reliance on foreign oil.

Less expensive off shore energy production excess can provide export profits and attract major industries to our shore.

Until green energies prove to be productive, reliable, affordable and efficient, we must rely upon the alternatives, such a offshore energy production, clean coal, nuclear and hydroponic sources.

South Carolina offshore drilling will produce thousands of new jobs and millions in additional tax revenue benefits. **(Until offshore surveys are completed and studied no concrete figures can be presented.)

The Gulf of Mexico platforms are highly prized by offshore fishing and diving tourist trips. They form an artificial reef teeming with life and generate for Louisiana alone, over 5,500 full time jobs and around $324 million annually. The reefs produce fish densities anywhere from 10 to 100 times than that of the sea floor, per Bob Shipp, professor at the Marine Sciences Department, University of South Alabama.



3000 of the current 3700 off shore US oil platforms are in the Gulf of Mexico, with 1/3 of the commercial fisheries in North America, situated in Louisiana. These platforms produce 80% of US oil and 72% of US natural gas.

Dr. Charles Wilson of LSU's Department of Oceanography & Coastal Science, states, "The fish Biomass around an off shore oil platform is 10 times greater per unit area than that for natural coral reefs." he adds, "Then to 30,000 adult fish live around an oil production platform in an area half the size of a football field."



In a study by Dr. Shipp, found that the northwestern part of the Gulf of Mexico was basically empty of stocks of red snapper for the 1st hundred years of the fishery. With the appearance of thousands of platforms, the western Gulf has become a major source of red snapper.

With SC off shore energy production, the state will experience and increase in not only energy production jobs, but also in the ancillary increase in tourism jobs, increasing fishing and diving tourism, job creation in housing and other supportive industries, as well as increased state and local tax revenues.

The oil rigs will not be seen from coastal communities, like the City of Beaufort, nor from the beaches of Hunting Island. They will be beyond the sight lines of beaches, approximately 75 to 100 miles off shore, in comparatively shallow water as opposed to the Deepwater-Horizon Well, which sits at 5,000 ft. The shallow depth will make the well easier to inspect, maintain and secure from potential accidents.

Island Packet, 8/25/2014, "Since 2010, two well-containment companies have developed technology that could quickly cap and contain a well blowout to prevent another Deepwater Horizon-scale disaster", said Erik Milito, a spokesman for the oil lobbyist American Petroleum Institute.

16. Release Draft Constitution to rebuild Zambia

Zambia has been engaged in several efforts to try and develop a new constitution in the context of both demands for a more democratic constitution and the need to rebuild Zambian political institutions which have been distorted by political manipulation over the years. Both the ruling party and opposition parties and civil society broadly agree on the need for a new constitution.

A new constitution for Zambia must provide important safeguards to ensure public accountability, responsiveness to the electorate, participation of the people in governance and the devolution of power to local communities. The approach to the making of a new constitution for Zambia must build on the past.

It must be participatory and be guided by dialogue, debate, consultation and participation. Additionally, it should be guided by diversity, inclusivity, autonomy, accountability and legitimacy.

The process must be empowering to citizens. Release of the draft Constitution will avoid political confusion and manipulation.

17. BRENT BEAVERS for Lauderdale County Commissioner District 1

If you would rather print/sign/mail a paper petition, need to figure out your voting place, or register to vote (or update your information), everything you will need can be found by copying and pasting this link: http://goo.gl/YmmzgI

***SIGNING THIS PETITION QUALIFIES THE CONSTITUTION PARTY FOR THE NOVEMBER 4, 2014 GENERAL BALLOT FOR THE DISTRICT 1 LAUDERDALE COUNTY COMMISSION ELECTION, IN WHICH I WILL BE THE NOMINEE. GOD BLESS!***

It's time to clean house and apply REAL CONSERVATIVE CHANGE!

I was born and raised right here in district 1 of Lauderdale County. I have a 14 year background in real estate/management, 6 years in law enforcement (shot in the line of duty), and 3 years in the military. I am not a politician, but I do have a servants heart and that is what we need in government moving forward.

Without us, there is no government.

Let's take a stand together!

When elected, I pledge to:
1) Promote fiscal responsibility and help make the county more efficient with the funds available (do more with less, no NEW TAXES).
2) Push for additional funding of road projects for the currently neglected parts of the county.
3) LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE! I am not interested in special interest politics...I WILL NOT BE BOUGHT!

18. Stand With Major General Paul Vallely and General James Mattis

We STAND with Major General Paul E Vallely.

Talk is CHEAP, people. Lip service without GUTS is a total waste of time, so unless you can step-up to it, all of you who are complaining need to shut your pie holes!

PUT UP OR SHUT UP!

In less than 24 hours we only got 145 signers on our first petition. We hear all this "talk" about wanting to roll on Washington, but when push comes to shove, all it is, is talk. No wonder the generals won't make a commitment to lead us. That is BULLSHIT.

If this is all the better turn-out we can muster, better hunker down for a long, long life of slavery. What a bunch of Candy ASSES!

I get so tired of all the lip service to wanting to roll on Washington when all it is, is a bunch of hot doggers who haven't got the cojones to sign their name in a show of support.

Sign the petition if you will support Major General Vallely and General Mattis. If we get enough signatures, the petition will be sent to them. Please also "Share" and refer your friends to sign the petition as well.

NOTE: It is NOT that it hasn't been attempted already. On 11-11-2011, MG Vallely and Colonel Harry Riley set out to MARCH ON WASHINGTON. They had commitments from over 10K veterans to show up. Well guess what? Out of those over 10K so-called "Patriots" who promised to show-up, less than 400 actually had the INTESTINAL FORTITUDE to even show-up. Do you see where I'm going with this? Either PUT UP OR SHUT THE HELL UP!

We're tired of listening to your gas, because that's all it is! Saving this nation is YOUR responsibility. There are those who WILL LEAD, but they need sheepdogs, NOT sheep to back them up!

Do NOT sign your name ANONYMOUS. Doing so will disqualify your signature. If you haven't got the courage to sign your name, don't sign the petition at all.

19. Return Pastor Hamblin's Reptiles and Acknowledge His Constitutional Right of Seperation of Church and State

The highest law in our land is the U.S. Constitution, which has some amendments, known as the Bill of Rights.

The Bill of Rights guarantees that the government can never deprive people in the U.S. of certain fundamental rights including the right to freedom of religion.

The Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment gives you the right to worship or not as you choose. The government can't penalize you because of your religious beliefs.

20. Petition to have David Cameron and his cabinet ministers impeached for treason against the British People

The collective political establishment has betrayed the British people by transferring our national sovereignty to a foreign power without our consent. This is in defiance of our constitution and an act of treason.

For the past several decades the British people have been treated with extraordinary and total contempt by the collective political establishment. It has not mattered which political party has been in office or “power” as they insist on calling it, nothing ever changes. We are continually subjected to the same global agenda. We have been used and abused like pawns in their game of supremacy in which a dynastic ruling class see themselves as ordained to rule as masters – with impunity, whilst we the people, as virtual slaves, are supposedly destined to obey – without question.

They have persistently and consistently undermined our democracy by agreeing to treaties with foreign political elites who have no business in our affairs.

They accommodate tyrants, dictators, arms dealers and all manner of dubious characters, with whom they are happy to keep company. They turn a blind eye when the smell of money wafts their nostrils… it suppresses the stink of corruption and evil. Their moral compasses are defunct… their values deplorable and motives despicable. Our soldiers die to service their corporate agenda – their blood is on their hands.

We have seen our three billion annual fishing industry handed over to foreign control for nil reward. Our farms no longer feed us, crippled by regulations made to favour foreign farmers. Our ship-building has been dismantled and our merchant fleet whittled to nothing. Our armed forces are under strength and we see foreign troops being trained on our own soil on the pretence that they may be needed to protect us… when the reality is they are being trained to subdue us… to protect you from our vengeance. Our children are victims of social engineering in the schools and declining standards of education. They are being sexualised by explicit exposures before they have the emotional maturity to be able to cope. They are destroying their minds and their childhoods.

They deny us our rights and our freedoms and contemptuously imply that they can provide us with a new Bill of Rights. Would we seriously trust a thief with our wallets? They have corrupted our courts by appointing judges who are contemptuous of our common law.

It is our intention to govern ourselves… we do not seek their permission – this is our right. They have had their opportunity and they have failed. We will take control of our own lives in stages, as and when it suits us. Our numbers will grow as we show by example that prosperity is the natural consequence of honest and fair governance. We will expose them for the criminals they are.

21. Georgia Energizing Liberty - bringing Ron Paul to Metro Atlanta - Spring 2014

• Who we are, and what we're doing:

Georgia Energizing Liberty is a coalition of individuals who want to produce a large liberty event in 2014 in Georgia with Dr. Ron Paul as the featured speaker.

• When and where?

This event will be on a Saturday in April in the metro-Atlanta region. We expect to draw a crowd from all over Georgia, as well as its bordering states.

• Why?

In addition to Ron Paul, this event will include national and local leaders of the liberty movement. It will serve to energize the liberty base, attract new people to our movement, share our message of freedom, and help liberty-minded candidates raise money and awareness. It will provide a forum to have liberty-focused panels and discussion. It will also put on notice those who do not vote to uphold the Constitution, fight for our liberty and freedom, and ignore our fiscal responsibilities and small government ideals.

• Where does the money come from and go?

The ticket price will simply cover the costs of the event itself. To keep the ticket price low (at or under $25), we are also pursuing sponsorships, donations, and merchandizing. Without these ticket prices would be at or above $75. We feel that a ticket price of at or under $25 is the max we would like to charge, if at all possible.

• Why should I sign this petition?

The results of this petition will allow us to determine the interest level of such an event and to estimate the needed venue size. Those who sign this petition will be added to the list of invitees via e-mail, and will thus have a first opportunity to purchase tickets when they go on sale. Depending on the venue size, it is very possible that this event could sell out.

• We are very excited, and hope that enough people will sign this petition to warrant us continuing with this event! If you want to be a sponsor or donate, please put a note in the comments and we will contact you.

22. Amend the Constitution so that Personal Information is Protected

Personal information is not a directly protected right within the U.S. Constitution.

This petition goal is to rectify this concern by clearly making such right evident through the means of a constitutional amendment.

23. Stop Excessive Tax rates and Delivery Fees for Electrical and Gas Usage

Electric and Gas companies are charging every consumer resident almost 80% more to use electricity and gas services. Your actual monthly usage is low but once your utility company adds on their taxes, recovery and delivery fees your bill is triple the amount and it is unfair.

MPSC (Michigan Public Service Commissions) has given your utility company permission to constantly increase their rates thereby charging you (the consumer), the same amount of charges they would bill restaurants, hospitals, your local shopping malls, government buildings,etc. This should be considered discrimination.

With the economic downturn and the recession the United States is facing, it should be unconstitutional to rob citizens in such a hard, economically destroyed country. Sign this petition to get the rates, taxes and fees lowered to a fair and just amount decreasing your bill by 60%. Say no to paying the same amount of charges as businesses vs. residential.

24. Let's Take back our Constitutional Rights

The federal government has abused the trust of the people, violating the rights guaranteed in the Constitution.

We are asking for a full and comprehensive investigation into the blatant abuse of power being committed by an out-of-control Executive Branch and an enabling Legislative Branch of the federal government.

25. No to Constitutional recognition of local councils in Australia

There is no requirement for recognition of local councils in the Australian Federal Constitution because they are a State instrumentality.

The claim for this recognition is by those who want to centralise all government under the Commonwealth in Canberra so they can directly fund local councils and thereby undermine and remove State governments.

26. Transparency in Vihiga County Executive Committee appointments

The governor, His Excellency Moses Akaranga has named his county cabinet as they await approval by the county assembly. We request the assembly not to approve the names of the COUNTY EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE members as they were not duly advertised to ensure fairness, merit and transparency.

This is a new constitution and with the devolvement of power, we need to have the most qualified people in office to raise the standards of our County. We have long lurked behind with our people being unemployed, high rates of poverty, drug abuse and high crime rates. To be a better county we need the best not political favours or buddies in key positions. We urge the County Assembly to reject the names and request the Governor to follow due process.

We need an economically, socially and politically powered Vihiga County!!!

27. Enact Freedom of Speech in Australia

Australia does not have explicit freedom of speech in any constitutional or statutory declaration of rights, with the exception of political speech which is protected from criminal prosecution at common law.

The Australian people want and need Free Speech. The Prime Minister needs to call a referendum to have this changed.

28. Arrest Our Elected Members of Congress for illegally not passing a budget

It is written in the US Constitution that Congress must pass a budget. No budget has been passed in over 4 years.

Clearly Illegal.

29. Project Amendment 28 - Constitutional Amendment to Require Firearms Ownership

Every able bodied individual in America should be required to own a firearm. Project Amendment 28 is dedicated to commonsense gun ownership and each citizen doing their fare share for the well-being of the United States.

In Switzerland, government funded civilian militias are the foundation of the most peaceful of European countries. All Swiss men get military training except for those who have opted for an alternative civilian service. If you do neither military nor civilian service you get taxed. After getting your Swiss Army training you go home and become part of the militia for the next 10 years or so, and your gun goes with you.

Kennesaw, Georgia requires gun ownership. In 2007, Family Circle magazine selected Kennesaw as one of the nations "10 best towns for families."

In Israel, every soldier carries his or her weapon at all times. Large numbers of citizens also carry firearms openly, or concealed. Street crime is non-existent and numerous terrorist attacks have been foiled due to the quick responses of average citizens.

The right, and obligation, of every free citizen to keep and bear arms is a fundamental bulwark against tyranny, an essential tool for self defense and a key to the self-reliance so essential to the American character.

30. Citizen Initiated Referenda

Senator John Madigan, DLP Ballarat, will submit a motion to the Senate in early February to amend Section 128 of our Constitution to give all voters the right to INITIATE referendums.
