Subject: Letter to the Editor, Operation American Spring
Date: Sun, 4 May 2014 22:58:09 -0400
On May 16th, many Americans will come to Washington D.C. to take part in Operation American Spring, a peaceful protest with the goal of demanding the resignation of the corrupt leadership in our government. They feel the need to do so because President Obama is acting like a dictator, by passing congress and advancing his socialist agenda through government agencies such as the EPA, and executive orders.
Our congress has become weak. The Supreme Court did not follow the Constitution in allowing the indefinite detention of Americans without trial to remain the law by not hearing the case brought by Hedges, a news reporter. There are no more checks and balances. The IRS was used to target Tea Party groups and religious groups; individuals were audited and forced to spend thousands of dollars to defend themselves.
Local police departments are becoming militarized, and capitol police shot and killed an unarmed woman in the back as she was fleeing. Election fraud was rampant in the 2008 and 2012 elections. When states pass voter ID laws, the Justice Department says they are discriminatory. Same day registration and voting is allowed.
Main stream media don't report all the facts, the few that do are criticized by the president. Recently an FCC whistleblower revealed plans for government monitoring of news media. After the revelation, the plan was stopped. Department of Homeland Security has added constitutionalists, people who believe in liberty, and survivalists to its terrorist watch list. It has been given a billion bullets, some are hollow point, which are banned by the Geneva Convention.
Military has written scenarios where the Tea Party are the insurgents. The EPA unilaterally took a million acres from the state of Wyoming and gave them to Northern Arapaho tribes. Obama can order drone strikes on his authority alone. The Declaration of Independence gives the people the right to abolish a despotic government and institute new government. Operation American Spring aims to do that, in a peaceful protest.
Well said , although I would have added...If the gov't abandoned Amb. Stevens and the 3 Americans with him in Benghazi, and left them to die without even an attempt to save them , then what would that same gov't do to save the rest of the country from the same fate ? All this to save the Pres. re-election campaign from the embarrassment of a scandal ! Illegal use of his office for political gains !
Terry Lynn, at this site, there are various tags at the top. On one of them (I think it was labeled OAS) were some discussions, and I saw someone offering a ride from somewhere in PA. Visit Constitutional Emergency at: http://patriotsforamerica.ning.com/?xg_source=msg_mes_network
Thank you, Louise - I will check into that.
I'm really hoping that we'll have many activities this year!
I believe that those who cannot go to Wash could organize and protest un their state and local governments, also provide areas of lodging, meals, etc for the traveling patriots. all across the nation.
Larry - that's a GREAT idea, and I will do just that!
OAS has my complete support and in fact I plan to be there. I don't know why its not supported by any and all patriots who know Obama needs to by ousted from the White House. You think sitting at home, reading about all this stuff is going to change anything? Obama has clearly demonstrated a ability to ignore bad press and carry on. He knows nothing is going to be done to stop him. If a president and a congress for that matter does not care about the constitution that keeps them in check what is there to keep them in check? Our constitution was written by men who lived in times where this kind of regime happened, they had lived through it and provided us a way to legally deal with it which is what OAS is going to do, or try to do. It needs massive support to succeed quickly and safely for those who are willing to make the sacrifice to be there, those that know it must be done, Americans that can't just sit and read or even write articles about all the bad that is happening, all the sins of the White House, but must put boots on the ground and take literal action to force a change. This isn't a step anyone wants to have to do, it must be done. And any and all patriots that know what we know and still just sit and watch what happens on 16 May 2016 safely from their arm chair and don't take up the fight and stand side by side with their fellow American's in DC are even more guilty of the consequences, because you all KNOW BETTER, ARE NOT IGNORANT, and still sat and did nothing.
Excellent response Margie, however, keep in mind that not all that have joined OAS are able to travel and do what they can in their own area. Even if it is only to inspire others to get on board with us, this is also important for it is still getting the message out and still telling people what we are about. Those that can be there and choose not to be, then in my book are NOT true PATRIOTS, but are afraid of what the consequences might be. If that had been the case with our Founding Fathers then we would still be under Englands rule and thumb today!!!! I feel sorry for those people, for they are nothing more than puppets!!! Oh and I will see you in DC as I am the Team Lead for Delaware!
Everyone going to the OAS, be able to communicate if cell towers are overloaded. FRS, CB or Amateur VHF/UHF Hand held radios.
just to let you all know that my letter was published in a local paper! (New Canaan Advertiser serving New Canaan, CT)
I received a notice from The Greenwich Post that they will publish it May 17th - both are weeklies.
My letter also got published in the Norwalk Hour.
Interestingly, someone must have looked up my home address, because they sent their response in the mail, with no return address. Sounds like they were a frustrated but low information liberal- comment was "There were more people at the marriage equality rally in Idaho!" and "Try listening to someone reasonable for a change"
The first comment was correct, the second, well they believe msm!
