Skip to comments.Free Republic establishes alliance with the "Restore the Constitution" effort
Posted on 10/17/2009 9:46:24 AM PDT by Jeff Head
We are pleased to announce that FreeRepublic and Jim Robinson have established an Alliance Link to the Restore the Constitution effort, The Independent Movement for Constitutional Restoration (IAM-CR).
The premise for IAM-CR is simple:
We intend to amass a voting block of millions of Americans who are sworn to focus on Constitutional Principle first and foremost in their voting and who will vote for and elect the thousands of candidatires we find and enlist who are sworn to support fundamental Constitutional Principle.
We invite all members of FreeRepublic to review our twelve constitutional principles and then JOIN US and invite your family, friends, and neighbors to do likewise as we build this voting block all over the nation and attract candidates to us, or develop them from our own ranks at all levels of government.
Please review the list of candidates we have already attracted, who have sworn or affirmed that they will support those same principles and do all in their power to support and inact them in law if elected.
IAM-CR is not a political party or a PAC. It seeks no donations, fees, dues, or other funds. It only seeks the commitment to constitutional principle of its members and candidates from whatever persuasion.
All of the public demonstrations are good, and critical in showing the opposition the strength, determination, and numbers of those Americans who are awakening to the destruction of our Republic by abject socialists and marxists in our own government. IAM-CR does, and will will link to and promote those FreeRepublic, 912Project, TeaParty and other events directed to this end.
But until we actually elect candidates at all levels of government committed to the constitution and who swear to abide its fundamental principles...nothing will change.
That restoration of our Constitutional Republic, based on fundamental constitutional principle is what this effort is about...that is what FreeRepublic is all about...the largest and most effective site for conservative activism and news on the intenet. Jim Robinson's foresight and dedicated efforts over many years must be recognized for making that so, and we sincerely thank him and all those involved with FreeRepublic for that work, and for forming this alliance with our efforts in support of those same goals.
In this regard, our alliance could not be more natural.
In fact, IAM-CR was created by several long-time and well known freepers and a couple of other well-known patriots. Jeff Head (freeper Jeff Head), Neil E Wright (freeper Neil E. Wright), David C, Wright (freeper dcwusmc), Ward Dorrity (freeper noumenon), Matthew Bracken (freeper Travis McGee), Pastor Stephen Broden (seen often on Fox News, Glenn Beck, and Hannity, and who is himself one of our candidates for the US Congress), and David Hedrick (the disabled US marine who stood up to his congressman at the town hall in Washington state and who is also one of our candidates for US Congress) are all on the Advisory Board of this effort.
Please JOIN US and help us use the political process and our voting rights to rise up and take our country back and restore our constitutional republic.
FYI...announcement regarding the alliance link to FreeRepublic.
That’s great, Jeff.
Thanks annie...please spread the word and consider joing with us. God’s blessings to you and yours!
Thanks for the BUMP, fiddlstix. Please spread the word. God’s speed!
God Bless this mission.
That’s great Jeff. Thanks Jim.
How can I help?
Take a look at www.AmericasOwnersManual.com That might be useful.
Ahem. That is not in the constitution. The rights enumerated in the constitution, particularly the Bil of Rights, are not conditionally granted. Or any other verb you care to apply. Nor were they until the 20th century when the gun grabs began.
This group just wants to make the same mistake over again, leaving in the place the mechanisms by which our rights are being eroded, so that they can be eroded again.
A lot of good principles proposed here, but all it will do is rewind the clock a few years.
I propose the group follows their own logic: "Having been convicted of a felony, you no longer have a Second Amendment right." (Quite a 'right', no?):
- You may lose your First Amendment right (we don't want ex-cons assembling with their own, or possible predators going to church, or DUIs in bars).
- You may lose your Fourth Amendment right (druggies in particular profit from this, as do pornmeisters, and we cannot allow that).
- You should lose your Fifth Amendment right, particularly when the government doesn't like the outcome (remember the LA cops? Apply this especially to sex offenders who get acquitted at trial).
- You will lose your Eight Amendment right (especially for heinous crimes for which you really, really, to "have the punishment fit the crime").
But let's make things easy for the bureaucrats. Once convicted of *any* crime, you lose all these rights. And you may have them taken away if you're under suspicion. Or if you're a liberal.
Ping to all the Patriots on the gardening thread.
So now get your butt over there and join us... and also here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2364554/posts to send this Cease and Desist Order to your whole mailing list. FReepmail me your email address and I’ll send you the Word file to print out and send to your Senators and congresscritters and local Federal judges and so forth.
Excellent. Thanks for the post.
Very nice, Jeff! I’ve already signed up!
Many of the “12 principles” listed have nothing to do with the Constitution. Energy policy???
Yes, we urgently need to restore respect for, and application of, the principles spelled out in the US Constitution. But that doesn’t involve inventing a laundry list of “Constitutional principles” that would be as unrecognizeable to the framers of the Constitution as many of the leftist perversions of the Constitution which currently dominate the governnance of our nation.
I agree. Once convicted and sentenced for a crime, you would most surely have certain rights SUSPENDED for the duration of your imprisonment, but once your sentence is COMPLETED, the suspension must be lifted IMMEDIATELY. And if you are such a threat to society when you are released, WHY ARE YOU BEING LET GO? Why isn’t your sentence LIFE then? No, I have long thought that the ‘68 GCA which did this abomination went way overboard - in EVERY WAY - by causing such issues to surface. Even a felon who’s “paid his debt to society” has a right to protect himself... and, by the way, why wasn’t that “debt” paid to his VICTIM, in the form of restitution to make the victim whole again?
