WHERE IS THE CONSTITUTION LOBBY?
WHO IS LOBBYING FOR AMERICA’S
Here at Foundation headquarters, many hours
have been spent these past four weeks
praying, thinking, discussing and laying out
specific plans for the coming months. The
steps we have taken have never been about
what would be easiest or best for our
personal selves, but what we believe to be
the Appropriate Next Steps on the Pathway to
We look at the events taking place in
America. We see lobbyists in Wisconsin and
elsewhere. We find ourselves asking “Who is
lobbying for America’s Constitutions? Where
is America’s Constitution Lobby?”
There is a cotton lobby, a public employee lobby,
and thousands of other lobbies watching and
influencing the behavior of our state and federal
legislatures but no Constitution Lobby – no one is
watching and holding our public officials
accountable to our State and Federal Constitutions.
Is it any wonder the servant has been taking over
Declaration of Independence, initial State
Constitutions and Constitution for the United States
were given so men could be Free - Free to break away
from the bondage of other men. Guided by Biblical
Law and “Divine Providence,” this was the Founders’
attempt to fulfill what they perceived to be the
Creator’s intentions for each soul.
spiritual values and core principles that define the
essence of human liberty were like a wildfire
burning in the hearts of America’s founders. They
held “these truths to be self evident.” For those
who gave their all to advance the cause of freedom,
life had no purpose or meaning outside His truth. The element American was common to the
character of our People at the time of America’s
Master of the Universe was making all things
possible for those who relied on Him. The
magnificent experiment in freedom that is America
was conceived and born of His blessing, not man’s
reason or wisdom. We were created to be free.
However, by His grace and boundless love we were also given the capacity to discern the truth of
His Word and to choose to live in the Light or
darkness. The dark forces of the universe have
existed since they were cast out of His presence.
most of human history, the fallen have viciously
pursued and defended their claim to all things
temporal and transient in the physical realm.
America offered much but no safe harbor from the
forces of darkness and human frailties.
symptoms of America’s
disease of public apathy, willful neglect and undue
reliance on the electoral process and trust in
elected officials have now become manifest as a
field ravaged by a swarm of locusts.
The deliberations of the Constitutional Convention of 1787
were held in strict secrecy. Consequently, anxious
citizens gathered outside Independence Hall when the
proceedings ended in order to learn what had been
produced behind closed doors. The answer was
provided immediately. A Mrs. Powel of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor,
what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" With no
hesitation whatsoever, Franklin responded, "A republic, if you can keep it."
Has the cause of Freedom been lost in time?
There are some who are now resigned with strong
conviction that the remnant of our former fervor for
freedom is not sufficient to turn back the ravages
of apathy and willful neglect that have consumed the
world’s most magnificent experiment in freedom.
While we who travel in the Light of eternal truth
know the reward for our faithfulness and vigilance
will come at the time of His divine prerogative, we
also know with equal conviction we are not to be
resigned to suffer loss of freedoms while we “wait
believe that as Americans it is our duty to stretch
our individual freedom-oriented thoughts and actions
beyond their normal limits, and channel our
individual energies, to develop the thrust needed to
intensify and strengthen the national passion for
Freedom lost is to be found. The Constitution is not
a dead letter. We will never abandon the cause. The
People are not helpless. The situation is not
hopeless. Quitters never win. Winners never quit.
When situations are difficult, strong people rise to
dormant Voice of Truth and Justice and Right and
Good is among us and capable of development. A
stimulus is being applied. It is not coming from the
“top down,” but is blazing from the “bottom up,”
through the People. There is a huge layer of
energy, wisdom and power that is riding just beneath
the surface of the current paradigms, gaining
strength and momentum.
What will be the response to this stimulus? We are
all in this together and it is the sum total of what
we do, as a Free People in America, that will decide
the fate of this country.
for the We The People organization, our mantra has
been: “Our Founding Documents are the greatest
governing documents ever given to mankind; they
guarantee the unalienable Rights of the People; by
their terms the People have instituted, enabled and
restricted the power of government, whose sole
purpose is to secure the Rights of the People; they
and the People’s will to defend them are all that
stand between the People and oppression; they are
not a menu from which to pick and choose; they
cannot defend themselves; they will not be defended
unless the People defend them.”
position is simple: Any act by elected officials
that is repugnant to a Constitution is not to be
tolerated by the People. We are a Nation ruled by
Law, not Man or Whim. If we do not like what our
Constitutions require, there are provisions in them
for amending their principles, prohibitions,
restrictions or mandates. The process of changing
our Constitutions by having our elected officials
ignore their provisions, usurp the power of the
People and abuse their power must be reversed.
point is, those wielding governmental power must be
constantly watched and made to obey our founding
documents, for each and every violation has a
devastating impact on our States, the Nation, our
People, our economy and our reputation.
