When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty and property of We The People from whom its legitimate powers are derived, and for the advancement of whose happiness it was instituted, and so far from being a guarantee for the enjoyment of those inestimable and inalienable rights, becomes an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression;
When the federal republican Constitution, which they have sworn to support, no longer has a substantial existence – the whole nature of our servant government having been changed without our consent, from a restricted republic of sovereign States to a consolidated central despotism in which productive Americans are forced to work for bureaucrats, bankers, favored industries, and a growing parasitic population that has rendered our Republic fully socialist;
When, long after the spirit of the Constitution has departed, moderation is thrown to the wind by those in power, the semblance of freedom removed, and the forms of the Constitution discontinued – as in the arrogant violation of the Second Amendment’s proscription against any infringement of the right of the People to keep and bear arms (which Article I, Section 8, Clause 15 assumes is the duty of all able-bodied Americans);
When for five generations, We The People have suffered the general government’s instigation, perpetration, funding, and defense of organized crime;
When, far from our petitions being regarded, citizens who show public concern for these infringements and usurpations are marked as ‘terrorists’ by tyrannical new federal agencies hatched under the guise of ‘war on terror’;
When, with each new legislature, administration, and federal Supreme Court, the public servants of We The People more openly and arrogantly burden us and encroach on our privacy; on our liberty to travel freely; on our ability to enjoy our own property freely or to raise our children as we see fit; on our ability to actually own our property free and clear; to operate our farms, shops, or businesses as we see fit without posing any harm to others;
In consequence of such acts of malfeasance and abdication on the part of the servant government, anarchy threatens to dissolve civil society into its original elements – the first law of nature and the right of self-preservation – the powers reserved by We The People as stipulated in the U.S. Constitution, Amendment X, enjoins not only our right but a sacred obligation to our posterity, to enforce the specific limits of federal power as enumerated in that supreme Law of the Land, through the Courts of our sovereign States and through such federal legislative reforms as We The People may effect, to secure our future welfare and happiness.
Nations, as well as individuals, are amenable for their acts to the public opinion of mankind. A statement of a part of our grievances is therefore submitted to an impartial world along with the peaceful, lawful, and legitimate enforcement steps that We The People of these United States now intend to take, to which the nations of the earth are witness.
We The People of the fifty sovereign States of America, creators of the U.S. Constitution, acknowledge the duty of every American to preserve, protect, and defend that Supreme Law. We hereby announce to a watching world our intention to restore the original form, purpose, and enumerated limits of our government, superintending from this day forward our State courts and federal servants so that we may once more secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and to our posterity.
These fifty United States have a solemn duty to serve their citizen masters by enforcing our supreme Law of the Land when one or more branches of federal government violate it. The three branches of federal government are creatures — things created by us in the U.S. Constitution, the highest Law of the Land throughout this Republic.
In the Constitution, We the People clearly enumerate the powers of federal government. We retain any powers not specifically enumerated therein, to ourselves and our sovereign States. Any exercise of power by federal government beyond those listed powers is an ongoing violation of the Supreme Law.
President Jefferson said that “in questions of powers...let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution”. Such “binding down” can be peaceably accomplished by binding the federal purse and by We the People and sovereign States enforcing that Law of Limitation for the first time in American history.
The present $3.9 trillion annual federal revenue – and the far larger mountain of fraudulent financial derivatives that Congress allows the financial industry to create from thin air and our labor – have spawned a brood of corruptions as unlimited oceans of money always do. This ocean of illicit D.C. cash has spawned unconstitutional federal powers, cabinet departments, agents, agencies, programs, projects, offices, regulations, and financial industry ‘assets’ that for sheer number are impossible to list here but that threaten our liberties, property, livelihood, posterity, and public morals, making a joke of our Supreme Law.
In Federalist #28, Alexander Hamilton said that by merely exercising our power as creators of the federal government, we can prevail: “the larger the American population would become, the more effectively we can resist federal government tyranny... Power being almost always the rival of power, the general government will at all times stand ready to check the usurpations of State governments, and these will have the same disposition towards the general government. The People, by throwing themselves into either scale, will infallibly make it preponderate. If their rights are invaded by either, they can make use of the other as the instrument of redress..”. The mission of AmericaAgain! is to make good on the guarantees offered in the Federalist Papers to our forefathers.
All three branches of our federal creature have ceased to check-and-balance one another, instead colluding over the past 150 years abusing the “necessary and proper”, “general welfare”, and “interstate commerce” clauses to fashion a lawless, limitless system of power, pork, and perquisites warned against by James Madison, the primary author of the Constitution:“…it is evident that there is not a single power whatever, which may not have some reference to the common defense or the general welfare; nor a power of any magnitude which, in its exercise, does not involve or admit an application of money. The government, therefore, which possesses power in either one or other of these extents, is a government without the limitations formed by a particular enumeration of powers. Consequently, the meaning and effect of this particular enumeration is destroyed by the exposition given to these general phrases…Congress is authorized to provide money for the common defense and general welfare. In both, is subjoined to this authority an enumeration of the cases to which their power shall extend…a question arises whether (any) particular measure be within the enumerated authorities vested in Congress. If it be, the money requisite for it may be applied to it; if it be not, no such application can be made.”
"It is incumbent in this, as in every other exercise of power by the federal government, to prove from the Constitution, that it grants the particular power exercised.”
“With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.”
Congress and presidents for many generations have violated the highest law in America in precisely this blank-check manner, at a cost of tens of trillions of dollars – and at the further cost of our liberty, privacy, and rights to property and peaceful self-government. When a government of, by, and for The People stands in perennial, collusive violation of the Constitution, We The People have constitutional authority to take enforcement action. The duty of constitutional law enforcement falls on We the People, not by resisting government's lawlessness with lawlessness of our own but rather through having the courts of our sovereign States bring law enforcement power to bear as our right and duty under that Law.
With respect to compliance with his “Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution”, no public official can ever be allowed to be the judge of his own case, as Presidents Jefferson and Madison observed.
The nefarious practice of issuing executive orders is nowhere authorized in Article II of the Constitution. Numerous such executive fiats are demonstrable violations of the limited powers stipulated in Article II, yet We The People have had no voice in said imperial edicts issued by presidents. The same principle holds true for treaties signed by tyrannical presidents under the noses of the American people, and to our clear detriment yet without sufficient popular review before being trundled through a complicit U.S. Senate.
Every public official’s oath is made to We the People; the Constitution commands that the official be bound by that oath; thus We the People have the right to enforce that oath and the power to do so as well, for no right can exist without an effective remedy, including remedy via State courts.
Corrupt practices of Congress now infest our State, county, and municipal governments also, as the U.S. Supreme Court suggested in its 1928 Olmsted ruling: “In a government of laws... Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law…”.
Congress has perennially refused to balance its federal budgets.
The flow of illegal aliens across our borders reached epidemic proportions long ago, yet Congress refuses to seal the borders, instead arming a ticking time bomb against our culture and civil order; saddling Taxpayers with the cost of socialist programs for politicians’ future political pawns. America was always a melting pot Republic with a common language, currency, culture and work ethic; now it is polyglot warring factions seeking African-America, Mexican-America, Israeli-America, and Muslim America.
The U.S. Congress was intended to be populated by citizen-statesmen for limited terms so that no lifelong political oligarchy would rise up to rule over the citizens as is now the case, with members of Congress being wealthy, insular individuals with little affinity with, or empathy for, the average citizen. Members of Congress shamelessly enjoy fat pensions, insurance policies, private spas, limousines, private jets hidden in federal budgets, and much more – paid for by citizens who will never enjoy such free luxuries.
Because the Thirteenth Amendment disallows slavery or involuntary servitude, national conscription for military or other national service would be illegal.
In the interests of a massive industry rather than national security, the U.S. Congress has refused to cut off funding for undeclared, unprovoked foreign attacks and invasions ordered or maintained by presidents who cannot prove they serve a national defense purpose. There will always be men in the world whose goal is plunder, to amass insane wealth; such chieftains buy and trade politicians as game pieces, world without end. They amass plunder using the U.S. military as free mercenaries.
The U.S. Constitution only authorizes Congress to use military power in declared war with a Navy, or with a Citizen Militia mustered for national purposes for a maximum of two years, or to use the Citizen Militia of the Several States, with officers and training provided by the States, “to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections, and repel Invasions”. No other federal armed forces are authorized by the Constitution.
Thus, it is illegal for full-time U.S. military to even exist, much less to plunder foreign resources or threaten foreign people who present no threat to us, under the guise of ‘democracy’, ‘peacekeeping’, ‘nation-building’, or ‘protecting American interests abroad’.
The only difference that the United States military industry brings to conquered lands is replacing Arab family crests or banana republic dictators’ logos with U.S.-based corporate logos. While this lawless plunder continues, We The People will continue to be regarded as enemies by citizens of the world.
The majority of Americans was once Christian; most still profess Christianity at least in name. The melting-pot culture that made America the envy of the world was not theocracy, but was demonstrably the ethic of Christ, not of Mormonism, Judaism, or Islam. We The People refuse to have America become as Europe – another battleground for a 1,400-year old Muslim-Jewish conflict.
The legislation labeled ‘Legal Tender Act’ beginning in 1862 and collusive rulings by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1871 and 1884 violated the U.S. Constitution’s stipulations in Article I, Sections 8 and 10. By law, only Congress has the power only to coin gold and silver, and every State shall use only gold and silver coin as legal tender. All paper scrip – and the tens of trillions of dollars annually in derivative financial instruments – are manifestly illegal and immoral, yet enabled under the protection of Congress, whose members have overseen and acquiesced in a 150-year-old conspiracy to defraud, embezzle from, and place into servitude the citizens they pretend to serve and represent.
It is illegal for Congress to declare that paper shall be considered lawful money. It is illegal for Congress to grant a concession to a private cartel using the Federal Reserve brand to manufacture counterfeit (paper) money and to require the People and sovereign States to pay face value plus interest for the worthless scrip.
Congress has willfully allowed the Internal Revenue Service to perennially violate the federal tax laws, regulations, and its own operating manual, transforming Taxpayers by terrorist coercion into pack-mules to carry the financial burdens of Congress’ demonstrable crimes. We refuse to allow Congress to burden future generations with an equally corrupt revenue-neutral ‘fair tax’, so-called, that would continue to amass over four times the revenues required to fund enumerated federal powers.
On a Sunday night in March 2010, the Democrat members of Congress conspired to transform the IRS into an American Gestapo – finally unmasking its terror organization to enforce its unconstitutional ‘health care’ scheme in which Barack Hussein Obama was also complicit. Even if a future Congress should mitigate this tyranny, history proves that if Congress is allowed to arrogate such new powers, it will never relinquish them.

After our long failure to perform our citizen duties, bearing the cost of our abdication on every hand, We the People of these fifty united States intend to lawfully, peacefully begin enforcing the Constitution in each of the 435 U.S. House districts and in each of our 50 States against its violation by our U.S. congressmen and senators, effecting such law enforcement through local AmericaAgain! chapters singly and statewide in a mechanism we shall refer to as the AmericaAgain! Indictment Engine™.
We the People hereby announce our intention to draft, refine, and push through the passage of the following Legislative Action projects of the American People. We demand that those we elect and send to serve us in the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate show their full support as they:
1) Enact a Non-Aristocracy Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, as follows:
Section 1. No member of the U.S. House of Representatives or of the U.S. Senate shall serve more than two (2) terms of office.
Section 2. Public funds used by any member of Congress shall be limited to a member's salary, office staff and costs, self-operated automobile, coach-class airfare for public business, and franking privilege to communicate with constituents. All other publicly-funded emoluments to a member of Congress shall hereafter be treated as illegal use of public funds, and shall include but is not limited to: pensions and insurance premiums (retroactive); limousines, first-class or charter air travel; meals, hairdressers, spas, and club memberships – and any other benefit not enjoyed by the average American taxpayer.
2) Enact the Lawful United States Money and Banking Act which will be similar to, but more comprehensive than H.R. 459, 833, 1094, 1095, 1098, 1496 and 2768 and S.B. 202, for at least the following purposes:
(a) Declaring that We the People have delegated the power to ‘coin Money’ only to Congress, and have delegated to Congress only the power to ‘coin Money’, and that Congress lacks any authority to delegate or to fail, neglect, or refuse to exercise this power;
(b) Declaring that the Legal Tender Act of 1862, the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, and all subsequent amendments of those acts, have been unconstitutional since their purported enactment; that the special privileges now attaching to Federal Reserve Notes— that such notes shall be redeemed in lawful money by the United States Department of the Treasury, shall be receivable for all taxes and other public dues, and shall be legal tender for all debts, public and private—have since enactment been in violation of our Supreme Law;
(c) As remedies for these violations of the Constitution, establishing as an alternative to the Federal Reserve System and Federal Reserve Notes, a system of official money consisting solely of gold and silver, with silver coins to be valued in ‘dollars’ at the prevailing exchange rate between silver and gold in the free market. The alternative money to be produced through immediate free coinage of whatever gold and silver may be brought to the United States Mints; including sale of the existing national gold stocks, replaced by silver stock if the gold-silver ratio suggests silver as preferable for the initial coinage;
(d) Said reserves and coinage and/or fully-convertible paper or electronic receipts for physical gold and silver, shall be substituted for Federal Reserve Notes as rapidly as maintenance of stability throughout America’s economy will permit, in all financial transactions of the general government;
(e) Amending rather than immediately repealing the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 (as amended) such that after the effective date of such legislation, the Federal Reserve System shall have no official relationship to the general government; that Federal Reserve regional banks shall obtain new charters from the States consistent with the laws thereof or cease doing business as of the date on which the Secretary of the Treasury shall certify that all financial transactions of the general government are being conducted solely in gold and silver or fully-convertible paper or electronic receipts for physical gold and silver;
(f) Acknowledging that the States have always enjoyed the right as sovereign governments and a duty pursuant to Article I, Section 10 of the Constitution to employ gold and silver coin or fully-convertible paper or electronic receipts for physical gold and silver, to the exclusion of any other currency as their medium of exchange in their sovereign functions; that neither Congress, nor the president, nor any court, nor any international or supra-national body, nor any private parties have any authority to require a State to employ anything other than gold and silver coin or fully-convertible paper or electronic receipts for physical gold and silver, for such purposes;
(g) Making illegal the practice of fractional reserve banking, requiring that if any bank or financial institution that accepts deposits in the normal course of business is unable to pay on demand all such deposits in gold and/or silver or fully-convertible paper or electronic receipts for physical gold and silver, then the directors, officers, shareholders, partners, trustees, or other owners and managers of such institution shall be personally liable and their own personal assets subject to seizure to satisfy unpaid deposit balances under the laws of the State in which the demand for payment of such balances is made;
(h) Declaring null and void and imposing criminal penalties and civil damages on any person who purports to enact or enforce any purported tax or financial burden purportedly imposed on: 1) any exchange of one form of United States money for another form of money thereof, notwithstanding that the nominal value of one form may be different than the nominal value of the other form involved in the transaction; or 2) the movement of privately-owned United States money by any private citizen, to or from the United States to or from any other domicile that said private citizen may desire, provided said funds are not being demonstrably used in, or do not demonstrably result from, illegal activity; and
(i) Such legislation shall apply to Federal Reserve Notes, base-metallic and debased silver coinage, and all paper currencies of the United States until the date on which the Secretary of the Treasury shall certify that all federal financial transactions are being conducted solely in gold and silver or fully-convertible paper or electronic receipts for physical gold and silver, and thereafter only as Congress shall determine necessary.
3) Enact the Internet Liberty Act, imposing immediate, severe criminal penalties on any individual or group within federal government who – unilaterally or with other individuals, groups, organizations, or foreign governments – disables or censors the Internet so that it becomes inaccessible to the average computer or other Internet device in these united States – or who engages in establishment of, or supports actions that threaten the legal or financial sovereignty of any of the sovereign States of America without the knowledge and consent of the legislature of each and every State whose citizens would be affected, regardless whether such action may formally constitute treason.
4) Enact the Inalienable Right to Life Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, providing:
Section 1. The inalienable rights referred to in the Declaration of Independence, and the word 'person' as used in the fifth and fourteenth articles of amendment to the Constitution of the United States, apply to all human beings at every stage of biological development, irrespective of age, health, or condition of dependency.
Section 2. Neither Congress nor the States shall provide for or allow the taking of a human life except in conformance with law permitting an abortion when a reasonable medical certainty exists that continuation of pregnancy will cause the death of the mother, and requiring that every reasonable effort be made in keeping with good medical practice, to preserve the life of the child.
Section 3. Congress and the several States shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation within their respective jurisdictions.
5) Enact the Citizens’ Privacy Act, that:
(a) Acknowledges the Fourth Amendment privacy in the American people’s own persons, houses, papers, telephone, email, and other communications, vehicles and effects from any and all government surveillance, collection, seizure, storage, or detainment unless preceded by issuance of a specific, bona fide judicial warrant issued upon probable cause;
(b) Repeals any portions of the FISA, RFPA, USA Patriot Act, NDAA, and Intelligence Authorization Act of 2004 or any similar legislation in effect, or NSA operations having to do with American citizens in any of the 50 sovereign States, that violate the 1st and 4th Amendment rights of any American;
(c) Makes illegal any optical, electronic, airborne, or satellite surveillance, collection, seizure, storage, detainment, tracing, or tracking of any American citizen or his property until a judicial warrant is issued upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation and particularly describing the place, items, or data to be searched and persons or things to be seized.
6) Repeal the 16th Amendment, and enact legislation stipulating:
Section 1. Congress shall not tax wages and salaries of any American citizen, wherever domiciled.
Section 2. Congress shall assure that federal employees obey the taxing statutes and regulations of the United States.
Section 3. Rulings of the United States Supreme Court relating to internal taxation shall take precedence over policies, pronouncements, or rulings of any State or federal taxing authority.
Section 4. The several States shall have power to enforce this legislation by appropriate State legislation within their respective jurisdictions.
7) Enact the Private Property Act, declaring that the federal government lacks the constitutional authority to seize by purported eminent domain any private land, water, timber, oil, gas, minerals, or other natural resources in, on, or under such land in any State for any reason, under any conditions; or to purchase any private land, water, timber, oil, gas, minerals, or other natural resources in, on, or under such land in any State without the “Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be”; and per such declarations, repealing or otherwise invalidating all federal land-use regulations and like federal controls, restrictions, and prohibitions that deprive private owners of the full use and enjoyment of their properties pursuant to the laws of the several States.
8) Enact the Specific Enumeration Act, as follows:
Section 1. Notwithstanding all creative interpretations applied in the past by Congress and presidents for such terms as ‘interstate commerce’, ‘general welfare’, ‘necessary and proper’ and tax receipts sent as foreign aid (outside the borders of these fifty States), are hereby specifically made illegal. Federal government shall not enact legislation, regulations, treaties, or executive orders that would confer on federal government any power not specifically enumerated in the U.S. Constitution.
Section 2. Prior to being funded or observed for another fiscal year, any federal budget item whether executive or legislative – whether a department, agency, bureau, service branch, program, regulation, contract, expenditure, or executive order – shall be accompanied by proof that it falls within a specifically enumerated power in Article I Section 8 or Article II Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution or a duly ratified Amendment thereto or shall be suspended, with public funding to cease within twelve months.
Section 3. Any such power not specifically enumerated in this Constitution but desired by the American People, shall be proposed as a Constitutional Amendment not in omnibus form but as a discrete proposed amendment for each and every power, department, regulation, agency, service branch, program, bureau, expenditure, or office requiring the application of public funds to maintain or enlarge any power of federal government that is not specifically enumerated as a federal power in the Constitution.
9) Enact the United States Marriage Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, proposed various times in Congress from 2003 to 2008, providing:
Section 1. Marriage in the United States shall consist solely of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman.
Section 2. Congress and the several States shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation within their respective jurisdictions.
10) Enact Senate Joint Resolution 6 of the 111th Congress, ending the illegal alien ‘anchor baby’ practice.
11) Enact legislation declaring that neither Congress nor any president or federal court has the power to conscript Americans of any age into involuntary ‘national service’ or servitude of any kind, for any purpose.
12) Publicly reiterate Congress’ intention to exercise Subsection (c) of the War Powers Resolution of 1973 without delay in any instance when an administration has initiated foreign hostilities or mobilized the U.S. military without a Declaration of War and is unable to prove to Congress that such mobilization or hostilities are necessary to defend against a demonstrable threat to We the People and/or our sovereign States.
13) Enact the Secure Borders Act, to begin securing our borders including existing citizens’ plans to either: a) timely construct the U.S.-Mexico border fence with reasonable alternatives for the riverine sections of that border with environmental, regulatory, and bureaucratic requirements waived so that project(s) avoid the exorbitant time- and cost overruns common to government projects; or b) to so increase border federal troop strength, airborne assets, and electronic detection as to furnish a truly effective barrier to illegal crossing.
14) Enact legislation outlawing religious laws or pronouncements in favor of Islamic religion, the State of Israel, or other foreign interests operating on U.S. soil, providing as follows:
Section 1. Every applicant for U.S. naturalization shall be required to swear under oath that he/she gives full allegiance to the United States of America, and does not subscribe to ‘Israel first’ policies or to shariah law.
Section 2. It shall be a federal offense for any institution – school, church, synagogue, or mosque, public or private – to promote or incite war on the basis of any religious teaching, scripture, tradition, law, or on any other basis than the security interests of the sovereign States of America.
Section 3. No religious or social ‘law’, code, tradition, or custom practiced, promulgated, or enforced within the United States by any religion shall violate any local ordinance or State law, whether civil or criminal.
Section 4. All individuals and institutions found in violation of this law shall receive a warning and fine for the first infraction. Further offense(s) shall be subject to indictment for treason and seizure of all assets held within the United States.
Section 5. Any foreign diplomat or resident alien found in violation of this Act shall forfeit his/her U.S. visa.
15) Repeal the 17th Amendment. The original intent of the Constitution’s framers was to balance the Legislative branch with two bodies, the House of Representatives representing the interests of the People, and the Senate representing the interests of the States.
Prior to 1913, the individual State legislatures appointed two representatives to serve in the US Senate who were expected to act and vote in the interest of the State or were subject to immediate recall and replacement.
During the administration of Woodrow Wilson, Congress introduced the Seventeenth Amendment, which was ratified under questionable circumstances. The new amendment stripped away a critical power of the States to control Washington, D.C. by balancing the desires of the mob with cooler heads in their deliberative legislatures. Making both houses of Congress elected directly by the People opened the Senate to even greater corruption by moneyed interests and their lobbyists.
Most socialist accretions that have drained America’s private sector wealth and inflated dependent populations, could never have passed if the sovereign States had retained direct control of the U.S. Senate as designed by the framers. Repealing the 17th Amendment will restore this critical check-and-balance mechanism as our founding fathers intended when they designed the U.S. Constitution.
16) Enact the American Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2009 (H.R. 1146) of the first session of the 111th Congress, ending U.S. membership in the United Nations within 24 months, repealing various laws pertaining to the U.N., terminating the authorization of funds to be spent on the U.N., terminating U.N. presence on American soil, and withdrawing diplomatic immunity for U.N. employees.
17) Enact an American Sovereignty Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, based on the 1953 Bricker Amendment, assuring the sovereignty of the American People and States, as follows:
Section 1. No provision of a treaty or international agreement conflicting with this Constitution, or not made in pursuance thereof, shall be the supreme Law of the Land nor shall it be of any force or effect.
Section 2. No provision of a treaty or other international agreement shall become effective as internal law in the United States until it is enacted through legislation in Congress acting within its constitutionally enumerated powers.
Section 3. Any vote regarding advising and consenting to ratification of a treaty shall be determined by yeas and nays, and the names of the persons voting for and against shall be entered in the Journal of the Senate.
18) Enact the Honest Elections Act, outlawing computerized voting or vote counting, and stipulating that only paper ballots be used in all federal elections, which ballots shall remain in the control of each precinct elections committee until counted and posted in said precinct for public review and which ballots shall not be destroyed as long as said election remains in dispute.
19) Enact the Minuteman Act, pursuant to Congress’s power to “provide for ... arming ... the Militia” in the U.S. Constitution, repealing every statute, regulation, executive order, or other directive with the purported force of law of federal government, and to preempt every such measure, present and future, of any State or subdivision thereof, that infringes on or burdens the right of any citizen of, or legal resident alien in, any State who is eligible for membership in that State’s Militia to purchase, own, possess, transport, or sell, whether interstate or intrastate, any firearm, ammunition, or related accoutrements suitable for service in a “Militia” as that term is used in the Constitution for the united States; infringes on or burdens, except on the same terms as apply to any other business, the right of any person to engage in the commercial design, manufacture, repair, sale and distribution, or other trade or occupation involving firearms, ammunition, and accoutrements.
* * * * *
We the People reserve the right to revise and extend the list of federal government arrogations, violations, and usurpations brought to our attention for remediation by AmericaAgain! members via our State courts and through reform legislation.
As members of AmericaAgain! we resolve to enforce the Law of the Land under the Tenth Amendment, in which we retain all powers not specifically enumerated to federal government. We intend to tighten the chains of the Constitution, criminally prosecuting members of Congress who violate our Supreme Law.
Notwithstanding the long tradition of congressional corruption and arrogation warned against by James Madison, the numerous retained powers of We The People includes our power to allow no implication beyond those powers specifically enumerated to our federal servant – for our benefit, not theirs.
We shall begin to bring our corrupt members of Congress home from building their personal estates, from doing the bidding of powerful individuals behind the scenes – to bring criminal actions against them for violating their State statutes committed while the perpetrator is a member Congress.
Violations of State statutes are exclusive original and appellate jurisdiction of the Courts of the State in which the parties reside. No State being a party to these actions, nothing in the Constitution or federal law can be construed to allow federal courts to steal jurisdiction and free such perpetrators.
AmericaAgain! will seek to rekindle the Militias of the Several States, for many practical reasons. We share the founders’ concerns about government disarming the People; it behooves all citizens to be armed and trained to fulfill the Citizen Militia functions in Article I, Section 8, Clause 15 of the U.S. Constitution. Per Clause 16, it is the duty of the States to provide officers and training for Citizen Militias, yet no State legislature has yet fulfilled that duty. Until the State legislatures do so, it is the People’s express and retained power as well as our God-given right, to defend ourselves. Notwithstanding, AmericaAgain! does not condone or support collective offensive (vigilante) action; only self-defense. Nor do we condone citizens conducting armed public drills, muster, etc. except as authorized by State Militia legislation.
We hope to be better stewards of the natural resources that God has entrusted to us – rather than allowing our government in our name, to help corporations plunder resources of other nations. We acknowledge great energy and environmental challenges ahead, trusting God’s providence and human ingenuity to meet them.
We seek no theocracy; only to state for the record that America was founded a Christian – not Atheist, Jewish, Muslim, or Mormon – commonwealth. Although some of the founding fathers were not orthodox Christians, the vast majority was; and a survey of America’s original colonial documents of government, law, economics, and social life proves that America is founded on Christianity and no other belief system. Not all beliefs produce equally efficacious or humane law, ethics, economics, or social practices.
We refuse to operate in any unlawful, seditious, riotous, rebellious, paranoid, or terroristic manner. We also refuse to allow this tactical mission of We the People to be co-opted, overseen, or infested by politicians, lobbyists, or operatives from any government or political party, foreign or domestic.
We will organize and operate locally as free citizens in the privacy of our homes, businesses, and churches – or in public parks and any venue that suits us as owners and residents of such places – expecting to have no government oversight, infiltration, or coercion as is common to tyrant regimes.
Should our member of Congress refuse to stop violating the law; should he prevaricate and bloviate as politicians often do, or return to D.C. to conspire anew with like-minded scoundrels and moneyed oligarchs who purchased his first allegiance – we will seek his criminal conviction in State Court; the longest possible State Penitentiary term; and as actual and punitive damages for multi-trillion-dollar fraud and conspiracy, we will seek to have our State Court seize all of his assets held under any structure whatsoever, in any jurisdiction in the world whatsoever, inuring to his benefit or that of his family or descendants.
To any State grand jury, prosecutor, district attorney, judge, constable, sheriff or other State official who refuses (whether by complicity, timidity, or coercion) to oversee justice as his oath of office demands, We The People will see to it that you are peacefully replaced, as quickly as can be achieved by law.
No defendant in Congress can plead ignorance of the U.S. Constitution or ignorance of federal laws over which he is responsible – even those for which he voted without reading. Ignorance is no defense for public servants who swear an oath to support the U.S. Constitution, only to violate it daily.
We the People will offer immunity from indictment only if a defendant, in writing with notarized witnesses from among our AmericaAgain! membership, agrees to:
a) withdraw support for or cease acquiescence in the crime(s) for which we seek his indictment;
b) sponsor or co-sponsor legislation outlined above, drafted by citizens; and
c) refrain from proposing or supporting any amendment thereto.
AmericaAgain! is an effort conceived by free, productive citizens of these sovereign States of America who believe that by God’s grace, a diligent minority of Americans can restore liberty, property, rule of law, and the sovereignty of We The People guaranteed in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments.
We The People are attempting to end American fascism and socialism; in this us-versus-them struggle, a public employee or elected official is one of them. As a private membership organization, AmericaAgain! is open to any citizen of the fifty United States of America, and not to residents of the District of Columbia, any extraterritorial protectorate, nor to any public official or employee at any level from school board to Congress whose citizenship, salary, or public position derive from taxes. Such individuals have a conflict of interests and a motivation opposite to ours.
Each member of Congress leaves a public record in history. Their response to citizens now enforcing the Constitution will demonstrate their repentant fidelity, or their ignominious corruption.
We give thanks to God and ask His blessing on this formerly godly republic, that we may be AmericaAgain!
We The People of the fifty United States of America
