Historic Day, June 30, 2008

Tomorrow, June 30th 2008 will be an historic day for the nation as I and 1200 patriots will serve Petitions of Redress of Grievances, regarding significant and ongoing violations of the Constitution by the U.S. Government, to each member of the Legislative branch of government. The Petitions will also be given to the President. It may be remembered in history as the day Americans began, in earnest, the moral and solemn process of holding their (servant) Government accountable to the Constitution -- under threat of withdrawal of allegiance, support and tax money.


Incredibly, academic research since 1986 makes clear the Right to Petition for Redress is NOT a redundant statement of the Right of Speech. It is in fact, the individual exercise of Popular Sovereignty. Here's what the Founders sitting as the first Congress wrote:

“If money is wanted by Rulers
who have in any manner oppressed the People,
they may retain it until their grievances are redressed,
and thus peaceably procure relief, without trusting to despised
petitions or disturbing the public tranquility.”

Journals of the Continental Congress, 1:105-113

Demanding an official response within forty (40) days, the Notice includes seven (7) Petitions for Redress of Grievances regarding substantial violations of our Constitution including the war, money, privacy, arms and tax clauses.
