FREEPERS, JOIN US AS WE RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION AND OUR REPUBLIC

"Neither the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt. He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of his country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man." Samuel Adams

"The liberties of our Country, the freedom of our civil constitution are worth defending at all hazards: And it is our duty to defend them against all attacks. We have receiv'd them as a fair Inheritance from our worthy Ancestors: They purchas'd them for us with toil and danger and expense of treasure and blood; and transmitted them to us with care and diligence. It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us without a struggle; or be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men." - Samuel Adams

"We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate for any other." John Adams

Our founders, despite whatever differences, knew human nature and designed our constitution and government accordingly. Only a few reads of their words illustrate how far we have strayed.

Far too many in our nation have been lured into immorality, dependence, or apathy by the wiles of evil, designing men and women who lust for power and vice and want our liberty destroyed.

But we can take it back during any election cycle if the American people simply return to those fundamental moral principles (which are fundamental Christian principles) John Adams spoke of and rise up and kick the frauds and internal enemies out and send them packing.

I pray God in Heaven that 2010 and 2012 are such years.

Here's another excellent opportunity to make it happen. In order to do so, we need men and women of principle, dedicated to the US Constitution and the fundamental moral principles that are it's foundation.

There is a FreeRepublic alliance effort, supported by Jim Robinson, geared at identifying and supporting such candidates at all levels of government and amassing support for the in every state in thi union.

These candidates and members take an oath or affirmation to support and defend the US Constitution up front and bear true faith and allegiance to the same. They also swear the same to 12 rock solid, conservative, constitutional principles that they swea to enact or defend in law if elected.

This is the:


RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION

http://restoretheconstitution.ning.com

Well known freepers Jeff Head, Neil Wright, Matthew Bracken (Travis McGee), David Wright (dwusmc), Ward Dorrity (noumenon) sit on the advisory board for this group and are joined there by well known Pastor Stephen Broden who is running for congress in Texas, and well known David Hedrick who is running for congress in Washington.

We already have 30 very viable candidates from 21 states who have taken this oath and are being supported by almost 1,000 members. But we need 1,000 candidates and a million members.

So, freepers, here's a chance to get involved beyond the very effective and gratifying street protests and be actively involved in putting the right people in office at all levels of government and take our nation back, restoring constitutional principle in the process.

Please join with us today, and join your state group and actively work with you brother and sister, liberty loving Americans there to elect constitutional candidates wherever we can.


TOPICS: Announcements; Constitution/Conservatism; Free Republic; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: 2010election; 2012election; constitution; iamcr; restoration; restoreconstitution; restoretherepublic
I write this while in the hospital, but we have a worthy, exciting effort here with a bunch of good candidates already vetted and identified who need our support, and a lot more out there to find so we can take our country back.

how are you going restore something that has been all but destroyed? Is it Article Four Section Four that assures all states of a Republican form of government? Who is the assurer? where is even one benefitiary of that assurance?

No sir, it the declaration of independence we must look to.

I'd say that we need a George Washington. But those tactics will not work against communists. Sometimes I think we need a Pinochet.

We can restore it election cycle or set of cycles bynfolloeing Sam Adams admonition and only electing people of virtue, who are committed to the constitution and it’s underlying principles.

Put enough in office and they will turn things around because they are sworn bfore hand to do so and are committed to the same beyond treasure and life.

That’s what this effort is geared squarelybtowards.

The constitution is not dead...it is just being ignored by a bunch of interlopers and it is our job to correct that...and we can.

No it is not too late...We may be in dire straits, but it is just up to us, enough of us (and there are) getting involved in ways like this program illustrates, and filling our government with the right people.

And now is the perfect time, while the iron is hot in 2010 and 2012.

Glad to hear you’re feeling better! I noticed you have Vincent Forras (CT) as an independent on your list of thirty. He was an OP(formerly the GOP) candidate but did not receive enough votes to be the nominee or primary. His website does not state he has switched from OP to independent.

It is basil, and there are a lot of Texans getting involved and several candidates for congress have already signed on, including Pastor Broden.

Your help and pushing of this effort would be a God send.

We have a very impressive lady running against Lloyd Doggett (ugh!)! Her name is Judy—drawing a blank on her last name—and she probably doesn’t have a real good chance since Lloyd Doggett is firmly entrenched in the very liberal university city of Austin. I’m doing all I can for her, though.

I don’t know what district Pastor Broden in in.

filling our government with the right people.

Sure... Every 4 years we throw out the old and replace them with the "right" people - and we get the same-old, same-old - another day older and deeper in debt.

"The constitution is not dead...it is just being ignored by a bunch of interlopers and it is our job to correct that...and we can. "

I tend to agree with abortionisalwaysmurder...The Constitution is our holy grail...The goal we hope to achieve through it's restoration as the controlling framework within which this Nation once flourished as a Constitutional Republic...

However, it is the Declaration of Independence that provides the key paradigm for our freedom and liberty:
"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.." In addition, it supplies us with the specific tactical concepts that may be ultimately required to fully restore a Constitutional Republic:
"When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them ..."

Just a thought...

I agree with the critical meaning and force of the Declaration. It speaks to the underlying principles (which we also require people to swear to support and bear true faith and allegiance to). Butt the constitution is the law, and it is in place and if followed, would allow us through direct legal means, to restore the Republic.

We just need to get enough people, committed to both the constitution and its underlying fundamental principles (and we specifically
Iist 12 such principles to tie these candidates feet to the fire), which they should hold inviolate in any case, and get enough of them into office to turn it around...and I believe we can do it. The DOI defines those principles as well...and I believe we cover them pretty well in our list and the definition of each.

I agree, what really has happened is that people get elected to office, then they take an oath to a document most of them have never read and have no intention of paying any real attention to.

Some have read it and hate it with a passion and are dedicated to not only ignoring it, but destroying it if they can (I place Obama in this crowd).

A few are dedicated patriots and we need to vastly increase that number which is what this effort is all about, increasing awareness of both the document and it’s underlying principles and then getting candidates elected to office dedicated to the same.

The method to find and elect them proposed in this effort will ensure that does not happen. And in the rare case it did, they would be branded immediately by those who elected them as an oath breaker and removed in the next cycle.

I'd say that we need a George Washington. But those tactics will not work against communists. Sometimes I think we need a Pinochet. A careful review of the current O-6's and above cause me to fear, almost as much as I hate the current regime, a military takeover. Do you know of an O-6 or above you would follow? If there is to be a George Washington, he will come from the civilian side, not the military. Let me add this: The very first state to secede will get the rest of the nations best and brightest.
