This site is dedicated to restoring constitutional governance carried out in decency and good order.
Thank goodness Americans get to vote for those who would wield governmental power over them, and we should all vote, but the People must begin to hold those in office accountable to the Constitution, regardless of their political stripe and who they voted for.
The Constitution for the United States of America guarantees the People of each State “a government republican in form” (small “r” the philosophy, not capital “R” the party), where self-government – the will and consent of the People, was meant to be the only legitimate foundation of government. To be republican in form the will and consent of the People as expressed in our Federal and State Constitutions cannot cease to be the law.
As Jefferson said, “No government can continue good unless under the control of the People.”
Each prohibition, restriction and mandate written into our federal and state Constitutions represents another protection – another individual Right.
However, our Constitutions cannot defend themselves! It has always been up to the People to hold their public servants accountable.
Having been “asleep at the switch,” the consequence of inadequate civic education in K-12, People are discovering Liberty and Freedom have yielded as the Government has gained ground.
We invite you to join with others who wish to hold government accountable by claiming and exercising their Right to Petition the Government for Redress of grievances, a natural Right guaranteed by the First Amendment..
To be clear, the Right of the People to petition the Government to rectify its violations of existing law is the key to shifting the ultimate power from the Government back to the People where it was meant to reside in the first place.
Claim and Exercise your creator-endowed Right to Petition for Redress of Grievances – a fundamental, natural Right that is not only guaranteed by the last ten words of the First Amendment to the Constitution for the United Sates of America, it is guaranteed by every State Constitution.
“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” First Amendment.
As Ben Franklin said to a woman outside Independence Hall, as he emerged from the Constitutional Convention that adopted the Constitution for the United States of America, “You have a Republic, madam, if you can keep it.”
And as Thomas Jefferson said, “The People are the only sure reliance for the preservation of their Liberties.”
ABOUT OUR PETITIONS
We trust you will agree our petitions are intelligent, rational and professional, representing a rightful approach to restoring constitutional governance.
When we reach the number of signers of a Petition large enough to obtain a meaningful response we will serve the Petition on the named government official(s). We estimate that number to be at least 1% of the registered voters in the official’s jurisdiction.
Together, we can ensure the Voice of our federal and state Constitutions is heard and adhered to.
