Many American minds have been twisted by a hundred years of progressivism. A once proud and independent people have become increasingly meek and dependent on the decisions and goodies disbursed by faraway masterminds.
Part of that twist moved our attention and expectations from the dispersed power in our states, and toward a single focal point in Washington, DC. For any real or imagined problem, the perceived answer no longer resides within our communities or states. No, there must be a national program to deal with and regulate everything. This top-down imperial approach, that treats the fifty states no better than subservient soviet republics, is not only incompatible with, but hostile to free government.
Aren’t you tired of pleading like a serf with your rep and senators to comply with the constitution they swore to protect? I’m not saying we should stop communicating with them, but as a group, they will never reform the system that serves their personal interests so well.
If we are to save our republican freedoms from runaway tyranny, we must take the initiative, and stymie the radical onslaught, but how?
Voting for conservatives to national office is necessary, but history has shown it is insufficient. Conservatives will never set the terms of the debate in Washington, DC. The left simply owns it all. Big media and the DOJ are Obama’s shield and sword. If we are to be winning generals in this long battle against despotism, we must select the best terrain to fight upon, and that terrain is not in Washington. It is distributed among fifty state capitols.
Yes, the states. It is there our Framers direct us, in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments through Article V, to begin the process they planned, to take back our republic from the forces of darkness and despair. We do not have to put up with consolidation of all power into the hands of the few. We have the means, we must use them.
This new tactic requires a new perspective.
Do you know your state rep and senator? From you, do they know they have the constitutional duty and muscle to restore republican freedoms? They know very well the heavy hand of DHS, EPA, HHS, etc. and unfunded mandates too numerous to count. They know that over half of the states stood in court to oppose Obamacare. They know radical judges alone prevented Arizona from defending its southern border. They know of DOJ intent to hijack elections for democrats, and how the statists are ultimately nullifying the constitution. Do not discount their collective loathing.
These are the politicians we must motivate, because they are the men and women who will send delegates with detailed commissions to an Article V amendment convention and wrest power from our oppressors.
We are the many; our oppressors are the few. Be proactive. Be a Re-Founder of the American Republic. Join Convention of States. Sign our COS Petition.
