As the Declaration of Independence states:
“That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.”
We started the National Call to Action series early in 2011 to alert America of the dangers facing the Nation and that immediate action needed to be taken by our elected leadership. This has failed to occur and now we know now that we are in a Battle to save the country before much more aggravated pain is afflicted on the society. The arrogance of power and incompetence in Washington has generated widespread dissent across America. From our research and analysis at Stand Up America, we have found that the following are the greatest threats to America and must be dealt with immediately to save the Nation and the Republic.
- Dysfunctional, corrupt and inept government
- Financial Crisis/Collapse
- Inability to develop and execute a viable US “forward strategy”
- US Borders, particularly, the Southern Border
- Rogue nations like Iran and North Korea
- Islamists/Enablers of Radical Islam
- The Progressive Socialist Media
- Russia and China as enablers against America
- Globalism and multi-culturists, New World Order zealots
- Afghanistan/Pakistan Region
- United Nations and their subversives
- Cultural decline
All these take on different degrees of severity and threat to America’s well-being.
Each member of the House of Representatives, the United States Senate and even the President of the United States placed their hands on the Bible, raised their hands to swear on their sacred honor to protect, defend and serve the people of the United States. Sadly, we see them in violation of their oaths and their responsibilities. We should see a massive resignation demand on the steps of the capital and the call for the Impeachment and arrest of Barack Obama and others. We should be seeing them groveling before those who instilled their faith and trust in them by electing them to public service. Most have violated the Constitution of the United and many are guilty of treason. Fraud and corruption are rampant in the use of the peoples’ money.
We the people have had enough of this inept Government, elected officials and appointees. Our political system is broke…all branches appear dysfunctional and unable to solve any problems. Where are leaders with Wisdom, Courage and Common Sense? Have we no “Warriors” anymore. Where are the national security and “policy wonks” as well as our Generals and Admirals to reset the military strategy to deal with today and tomorrow’s threats.
We are on a progressive socialist suicide march. WE, the people have watched the President and his Cabinet, Congress and other bureaucrats defile our founding documents and sacred principles for several years now with no end in sight.
In 1789, Thomas Jefferson was overheard saying to Madison:
“Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves therefore are its only safe depositories.”
In Lincoln’s 1861 Inaugural address, he issued this warning to his peers:
“Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one. This is a most valuable and sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world”.
A change in government leadership must be conducted by the People of those elected and appointed political leaders who have violated the Constitution, which states in Article One, Section Five, Clause II “Each House may determine the Rules of its’ Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly behavior, and with the concurrence of a 2/3 vote, expel a member”
The Constitution and the States, however, provide the people the right and authority to do either of the following:
Per the 10th amendment to decide domestic matters within individual states, also grants the right to the state to refuse federal aid and to sever from the Federal Government’s authority entirely or per Article Two, Section Four, “The President, Vice President and ALL CIVIL OFFICERS of the United States shall be removed from office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
The current oath of office was enacted in 1884: The Oaths of Office is administered to:
- Vice President
- Supreme Court
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
- When a young man or woman enlists in one of the armed forces, he or she takes an oath to protect and defend the United States of America.
- When an officer in any of the armed services raises his hand and takes an oath to protect and defend his or her country, the Officers are expected to keep the vow.
- When any officer of the court takes an oath to perform their duties it is done with an expectation they will do so.
Why not the same for any member of the United States Government, but especially those that are elected by the people? Each member of the House of Representatives, the United States Senate and even the President of the United States raise their hands and swear on their sacred honor to protect, defend and serve the people of the United States.
BERATING and CONDEMING the United States before the world, overseas and in the United Nation is a flagrant violation of Trust and Honor.
The American people must do their duty to God and Country and use the power of their votes and remove the violators from office. WE need to establish a “Vote Of Confidence” measure. In the event there may be some doubt in certain individuals then for the good and welfare of the country ALL must go. We will start over if we have to! We will seek out those who have a strong desire to see America continue as created and designed by our Founding Fathers.
The majority of American people have lost trust and faith in those they have elected to serve the country because they have abrogated their oaths, given comfort to the enemy both foreign and domestic. The American confidence level of Congress has fallen to 12%. 545 men and women (that includes the President and Vice President as well as Members of the Supreme Court) have sworn to serve the nation. They have willingly taken an oath to protect and serve and defend the people and interests of this great country. Sadly, we see them in violation of their oaths and the moral strength to do what needs to be done.
America, Act Now for our survival as our strong and trusted nation is in great jeopardy. This is our National Call to Battle. This is a battle to save America.
