I want to propose this idea in hopes of peacefully resolving the problems facing our nation. A petition to congress on the White House website. What does everyone think? Can we get enough support? Shall we add anything to our demands? If all of us think we can get enough support then we should try a last resort before having to resort to civil war. (rough draft below)
PETITION TO DEMAND THE GOVERNMENT TO COMPLY WITH THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES AND THE PEOPLE.
We the people petition our government to comply 100% with The Constitution and the Bill of Rights of the United States. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land.
We the people demand the following:
That you immediately repeal every single law that is in violation of the Constitution and Bill of rights including but not limited to the following.
A. Repeal The Patriot Act and NDAA acts (violates the 4th, 6th, 7th and 8th amendments)
B. Repeal gun control laws in the country which is a violation of the 2nd Amendment and enforce the States to do the same or punish the States for non compliance.
C. Repeal Obamacare. H.R.3200I.H and H.R.3200R.H. (violates the 10th Amendment)
D. Stop sending money (foreign aid) overseas to our enemies which is treason.
E. Impeach President Obama for not being a naturally born citizen (violates Article II section 1) and unauthorized use of the military in Libya and Syria without congressional approval.
F. Export the United Nations from U.S. soil. The Charter violates the U.S. Constitution by delegating to the UN the power to declare war, a power specifically delegated to the U.S. Congress.
G. Abandon the Federal Reserve. Only the Congress has the power to coin money per Article I, Section 8 of the US Constitution.
H. Go back to a monetary system based on Gold and Silver and copper. Paper money is unconstitutional per Article I section 8 of the US Constitution which states only coin shall be considered money.
I. Pass a 28th Amendment “Congress shall make no law for the people that does not apply to themselves and Congress shall make no law for themselves that does not apply to the people.”
J. Reform the tax system to include a flat tax where everyone pays equally. There shall be no deductions of any kind for anyone including the congress and the rich and the corporations.
K. Cut all funding for every single program that the congress does not have authority to make law as mentioned in the Constitution, Article I, Section 8. Congress only has authority to make law regarding those items mentioned in Article I, Section 8. Everything else is the responsibility of the States per the 10th Amendment.
The congress has 60 days from the time this petition receives 100,000 signatures to comply with the people of the United States and to be in full compliance of the Constitution of the United States. If congress shall fail to act on these demands, the people of the United States will remove congress and the President from office for violations of the United States Constitution. You will be tried for treason and high crimes per Article II, Section 4 of the U.S. Constitution.
