There is no greater need in America today than the need to get the Federal government out of our lives. That is the opinion expressed by individuals across the political spectrum.


America's Constitution laid out a limited role for the Federal government. That role was clearly defined; nearly all of the functions for government staying either with the states or the people; instead of respecting the limited scope of the duties assigned Federal government has ignored every barrier intended to protect Americans from the assault of misapplied authority.

Those acting under orders from Congress, the President, or any other authority should take note; under the mandate of the Constitution you are guilty of treason. They shoot traitors. The question is not if, but when.


Just because those now abusing power are not now charged does not mean they can evade accountability. That accounting will, inevitably, come.

The precedents are how firmly loaded and locked. Americans are patient. During the period leading up to the Revolution there was a long period when the colonists asked for redress. Then they stopped asking, establishing a new theory of government from the idea wherein the sovereignty was directly in the people. That theory was immortalized in the Declaration of Independence.


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —“

The Constitution is merely the tool adopted to carry out that mission, covered in the subsequent paragraph.

That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”


The government of the Constitution is the plumbers helper the Founders chose. It of itself has no rights and can be changed at will. Despite the manipulations on the part of all branches of the hired help, Congress, Executive, and the Supreme Court, the mission statement remains the foundation on which the rights of individuals stand. America is not its government; America is the people who decide what they will use to organize their communities. Government is just that plumbers helper we use to keep the lines flowing smoothly.
