First Shot of the 2nd American Revolution?

11 10 2009

I received the following E-mail on a new Continental Congress from the leader of my local Meetup group.

The historic Continental Congress was a convention of delegates from the Thirteen Colonies that became the governing body during the American Revolution. The Congress met from 1774 to 1789 in three incarnations.

While the idea of convening a new Continental Congress is worthwhile, what I want to know is:

  • Why have we not known or been notified about this?
  • Why am I sent this E-mail only after the voting for state delegates is past?
  • Who are the voters?
  • Who are the three delegates representing my state, California?

………….

A grass roots organization, http://www.wethepeoplefoundation.org, has called for a Continental Congress 2009.

Since the American People have been dismissed and ignored by their elected officials, We the People Foundation is calling for PLAN B, The Contintental Congress 2009. This event will be held from November 9-22, 2009 in St. Charles, Illinois (and will be streamed online).

This November, delegates representing the People of the fifty states will convene as a national assembly for two weeks to publicly debate our Government’s abuses of the Constitution and to consider practical strategies which can bring about compliance with our Freedom documents, not only in our government at all levels, but in our individual lives. The stated objectives are:

1. No more undeclared wars that undermine the economy, the family and the Constitution.

2. No more gifting of public money and credit to private corporations for decidedly private purposes, which undermines the economy, the family and the Constitution.

3. No more debt-based, fiat currency that undermines the economy, the family and the Constitution.

4. No more direct, un-apportioned taxes on labor that undermine the economy, the family and the Constitution.

5. No more War on Terror with its developing Police State, which undermine the economy, the family and the Constitution.

6. No more unenforced immigration laws that undermine the economy, the family and the Constitution.

7. No more counting votes in secret, a practice that undermines the economy, the family and the Constitution.

8. No more attempts to disarm Americans.

9. No more attempts to create a North American Union

The Continental Congress 2009 will DEFEND not amend The Constitution.

Three elected delegates from each state will discuss what a free people can do if the federal government continues to ignore their concerns and will formally submit those grievances to the members of the United States Congress.

The voting for the delegates closed on Oct 10 so there is no action to be taken at this point.

In the meantime, check out http://www.givemeliberty.org/ and http://www.cc2009.us/ for further information or to make a donation.

Eowyn,

Something stinks!

Agree! It stinks to high heaven!

Imagine an organization calling itself We The People convening this “new” Continental Congress, without notifying the people!

Exactly!

This needs to be looked into and we may have to give this one some daylight. We also need to ask Steve because he seems to get around to many different sites, so we need to see if he has even heard of this group.

As I read the piece, the hairs on the back of my neck were standing at attention. And these people think we are stupid.

Gio,

I took a quick look at the We The People website: http://www.wethepeoplefoundation.org/

At the very least, these folks should be questioned for their total lack of PR skills. We are not in the Stone Age. We are in the age of the Internet, talk radio, Glenn Beck, and bloggers galore.

You’d think they’d have gotten some word out to one or all of the above!

I too took a quick look. Bob Schulz, the leader, has evidently been petitioning the government for the past 30 years. And from what I can tell he hasn’t been very successful, but I need to learn more.

Two things I saw that I didn’t like at the site…

1. On each page the American flag is in the upper left-hand corner… upside down! I don’t know the signifigance of it being upside down but I know I don’t feel comfortable with it.

2. They are against the war in Iraq. I know people have strong feelings about wars, but I will never be a part of any group that talks about unjust war while we are engaged in battle. This only puts our military in more danger by giving the enemy a morale boost.

To be continued…

Gio,

You’re right about the American flag!

Folks, if you go to http://www.givemeliberty.org/

You’ll see a tiny UPSIDE-DOWN American flag on the LEFT in the navy-blue bar at the top.

Why is the American flag upside down?

I don’t like this at all….

Gio,
The upside down flag, if I’m not mistaken, It signifies our country is in distress.

As for the CC2009, It seems there should have been some kind of Advertising to inform the people of the vote.

Bob,

That’s what the leader of my Meetup group e-mailed me:

Because our Constitution is being shredded and the country is in distress.

Still doesn’t explain why the flag is teeny and why it’s placed ON THE LEFT!!

I missed it the first time I saw the page.

I just said yesterday how I was ready to join the 2nd Revolution. Did not know about this business and I have been to resist.net before and didn’t see anything on that website about it. I’m skeptical, same as I am about League of the South. Have to do more research.

Bob, you are correct. The flag is flown upside down only as a distress signal:

The meaning of the flag being flown upside down is a SOS call for help, and as everyone on this forum knows this country is in need of serious help at the moment.

I’m going to paste the email I got from them a couple of days ago. If I’m unsuccessful I’ll forward the email to you.

What is this, some kind of Ron Paul thing? I looked at the cc2009 site and it’s not very upfront about its goals- which is always something to be wary about. The apparent “Jim Jones” of the group is some guy named Bob Schultz. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/We_the_People_Foundation (not that you can trust Wiki- but that’s what comes up on a google search of “Robert Louis Schultz”) Looks fishy- maybe somebody oughta call Linda Douglass.

I was shocked that they don’t seem to have a platform. And if they do, they sure know how to keep it hard to find.

I went on this website
http://amadon606.wordpress.com/2009/07/15/wethepeople_2nd_continental_congress/
and found this:

WeThePeople (WTP) Foundation has been working diligently behind-the-scenes for years to use the legal system to hold the U.S. Government accountable for the repeated violations of U.S. Constitutional law.

However, it became incontrovertible to all the world that corruption within the U.S. Government had become systemic when on February 22, 2008, the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear Case 07-681, WeThePeople v. U.S., that had petitioned the Court for a judicial declaration on the August 9th, 2007 decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals of the D.C. Circuit which held that the Government does NOT have to listen or respond to Petitions for Redress of Grievances from the People.

This, in the very face of the last ten words of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which says:

* “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.”
