Our state and national constitutions cannot defend themselves.
Unless we the people defend our constitutions, they will not be defended and we will continue to lose our freedom a slice at a time. As government gains ground, liberty loses ground.
To quote Thomas Jefferson, If the people become inattentive to public affairs, Congress and assemblies, judges and governors will all become wolves.
Violations of our constitutions have become commonplace. Each violation is having a devastating adverse impact on our economy, families and reputation.
We, the people, must get serious. Its our fault. We must begin to hold government officials accountable to the principles, prohibitions, restrictions and mandates of our constitutions, regardless of politics and personalities.
All it takes is a critical mass of 3 to 5 percent of the population people with a passion for America, Her constitutions and accountability in government. Individuals and small groups do not have the needed organization, power and resources.
Such a mass movement is getting under way in America, and right here in New York weve established a nonpolitical, nonpartisan organization called We The People of New York, to represent the citizens of our state to hold government accountable to the rule of law, regardless of what party you belong to or whom you vote for. We want every resident to know about this effort and become a member.
We invite you to learn more. Please give us an hour of your time and listen in on one of our weekly Internet meetings. To register for a seat at the online webinar, go to the home page of www.wethepeopleofny.org .
Our members in other states are doing the same across the country.
Please join us.
