We won’t let it happen. This is a popular uprising. The resistance is real
Philadelphia, PA (Vocus) March 6, 2010
As The White House announced its latest initiative pushing “ObamaCare,” a new website, http://www.CitizensConstitutionalCongress.com today went live to provide Americans with a powerful new voice of resistance to the government’s central planners in Washington, D.C.
Claiming to be “Free Citizens Fighting To Keep America Free,” CitizensContstitutionalCongress.com says it is inspired by the American Committees of Correspondence that, beginning in 1773, enabled American colonists to successfully oppose King George. It’s a proven historic model for a successful popular uprising.
The Tipping Point. CitizensContstitutionalCongress.com is providing “…a powerful new non-partisan voice,” in the wake of The ObamaCare Summit held in Washington last week and the announcement by the White House Wednesday that it is moving ahead to resurrect its highly partisan healthcare legislation.
“This is a tipping point,” says Lester Jenkins, spokesperson for CitizensConstitutionalCongress.com. Inflexible party officials – the President and his Democrat leaders in Congress (Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid) – have collectively shown themselves to be working tirelessly to promote legislation that violates Americans’ cherished Constitutional freedoms.
“We clearly see what is happening. We oppose the liberal-progressive activists in Washington continuing to dismantle individual freedoms that Americans have fought for, defended, and enjoyed for centuries. We are organizing to oppose them, utilizing modern communications tools such as polls, petitions, conventions. This is an enduring movement to defend our personal liberties – as every generation of Americans has been called to do.”
Early American colonists banded together to form Committees of Correspondence to oppose the encroachment on their individual freedoms by the English Crown. This loose confederation led to The First Continental Congress and the drafting of popular petitions – culminating in The Declaration of Independence – and a successful Revolution against the world’s strongest power. The United States of America was born, establishing the precepts of limited self-government, and guarantees of individual freedom, as enshrined in the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
CitizensContstitutionalCongres.com “opposes ongoing efforts to tax and restrict Americans’ personal liberties through excessive spending and legislative initiatives such as ‘ObamaCare’ and ‘Cap and Trade.’ We strongly urge a return to First Principles as articulated in the United States Constitution. We seek to organize our fellow American citizens in firm resistance with united opposition to the relentless trend among the political class toward socialism.”
The new website proposes to effect change three ways:
1. Online Polling. CitizensConstitutionalCongress.com will regularly conduct public surveys and publish findings (both scientific and inferential) in the American press.
2. Online Petitions & Summons. CitizensConstitutionalCongress.com will draft petitions, solicit signatures, and issue summons and citations to sitting U.S. officials determined, by acclamation of petition signers, to be violating personal liberties as enshrined in the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
When one million Citizen’s signatures have been secured on any Citizens’ Petitions, CitizensConstitutionalCongress.com will issue Official Summons to be directly delivered by Special Courier to the government official(s) cited.
3. Congressional Conventions. CitizensConstitutionalCongress.com will convene convention delegates (at locations outside of Washington, D.C.) to openly and publicly debate, authorize, and issue proclamations and citations in order to present government officials with the formal summons of the Citizens Constitutional Congress.
The new website has received endorsements from The Last America Band, whose new release, “The American Freedom Trilogy” features their new video, “How Stupid Do They Think We Are?” The band is directing proceeds from the song to help support CitizensConstitutionalCongress.com. Members of the band are currently touring Ireland and Europe, and will return to the U.S. by the end of the month.
The band was formed by five American recording artists following The ObamaCare Summit and the announcement by the White House Wednesday that it was moving ahead to resurrect its highly partisan ObamaCare legislation.
“Too many have sacrificed too much over too many generations for this generation to fail to defend freedom today,” says Jenkins, speaking on behalf of the band “We won’t let it happen. This is a popular uprising. The resistance is real,”
