The Real-Time Meltdown

The following is an excellent report by We The
People Foundation showing evidence of record of the refusal of government to
provide the people redress of grievances. Judges avoid questions on the
Constitution by calling it "a political question" to be addressed by Congress.
Congress either stonewalls the question(s) altogether as WTPF has proven on the
record, or if it speaks at all on the Constitution, it states that
constitutional requirements are "inappropriate and anachronistic."
The people must now act to throw off this
tyrannical abuse, but is withholding funds from government the only non-violent
means left for the people?? That method does not provide
WE SAY: J.A.I.L. IS THE ONLY
EFFECTIVE NON-VIOLENT MEANS LEFT FOR THE PEOPLE!

The American People are
witnessing the real-time meltdown of the Constitution. The judges aid and abet
the process. The representatives know it is wrong. Clearly, it is past time for
the People to exercise their unalienable right to wrestle an errant government
back into the limits unambiguously prescribed in our Constitution.
Any reasonable man would agree that every
citizen has standing to sue if the cause of action is an alleged violation of
the Constitution. In other words, the court's determination of the
constitutional question affects each and every citizen. However, the courts have
developed a "standing doctrine" as a way of avoiding certain questions. The
standing doctrine says that for a plaintiff to have standing to bring an action
he must show injury "different in kind and degree" from the injury suffered by
everybody else. Otherwise, the court says, the plaintiff's question is a
"political question" for Congress to decide.

this article reports on the treasonous behavior that occurred in the halls of
Congress on October 2 and 3. 2002, regarding the unconstitutional commitment of
this nation to war.
The government's disdain and disrespect for the
Constitution came out into the open on October 3, 2002, in the House of
Representatives, during the second day of a two-day hearing on the Iraq
Resolution (H.J. Resolution 114), "AUTHORIZATION FOR USE OF MILITARY FORCE
Congressman Ron Paul reminded the Chairman of the House
of Representatives Committee on International Relations that the Constitution
required a congressional Declaration of War before the armed forces of the
United States could be applied in hostilities overseas, not H.J.R 114, a
congressional Resolution authorizing the President to decide if and when to
apply that force.
However, Chairman Henry Hyde is quoted, for the
record, "There are things in the Constitution that have been overtaken by
events, by time. Declaration of war is one of them.There are things no longer
relevant to a modern society.Why declare war if you don't have to?.We are saying
to the President, use your judgment.So, to demand that we declare war is to
strengthen something to death. You have got a hammerlock on this situation, and
it is not called for. Inappropriate, anachronistic, it isn't done
The 50-member Committee then went on to vote against the
substitute amendment offered by Rep. Paul, which read simply (after the
resolving clause), "That pursuant to Article I, Section 8 of the United States
Constitution, a state of war is declared to exist between the United States and
the Government of Iraq and the President is hereby authorized and directed to
employ the United States Armed Forces to carry on war against the Government of
Iraq and to bring the conflict to a successful conclusion."
Committee then went on to approve H.J. Resolution 114, which was eventually
approved by Congress.
If anyone has lingering doubts about the
corruption of the Legislative and Judicial branches and the devolution of our
Constitutional system of check and balances into the instrumentalities of the
powers that truly run our nation, the proof is now put before you.
processes of limited government, defined by the Constitution are, indeed, no
longer relevant and have been neutered to the extent that today only the shadow
of a bona fide Constitutional government exists.
Our legislative leaders
and federal judges feel so comfortable working outside the Constitution that
they now no longer even hesitate to talk of such matters on the record. They
make contemptible judicial decisions and strong-arm the workings of the
legislative process to achieve their ends, knowing that the tentacles of power
will protect them, their careers and their benefactors.
Indeed, the two
most significant powers a People can grant its government are the power to tax
and the power to commit to war. These are the most critical elements of
government. As we sit today, our federal government is in gross violation of the
strict limits the People have delineated around these crucial powers.
many know, this Foundation has led the foremost public challenge put forth to
date, to enforce the 1st Amendment's guarantee of our individual
right to petition for redress of grievances regarding these matters. We have
petitioned repeatedly regarding hundreds of specific legal and Constitutional
issues surrounding the income tax system of this nation and put forth a petition
publicly exposing the fraudulent legislative process that may shortly deliver
this nation into war.
On the question of moving the federal Judiciary to
challenge the unconstitutional declaration of war, the Foundation presents for
your review a summary of the lawsuit brought by Bob Schulz and several others in
1999 seeking redress, through the courts, for the unlawful application of the
armed forces of the US in hostilities in the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in
1999. Click here to read the Memorandum of Law, dated 7/7/99, written by Bob
Schulz. Click here to read the Verfied Compliant, dated 5/28/99, against the
President, the Secretary of Defense and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

The case against the use of force in Yugoslavia without a declaration of
war was dismissed for lack of standing. In other words, according to the court,
the plaintiffs had to take their complaint to Congress - the very people who
violated the Constitution, and who obviously were not going to listen to the
In other words, Congress gets to change the Constitution (but
in a way not authorized by the Constitution).
Finally, to see how
redress actually proceeds in the courts, please read the article by Stephan
Archer of World Net Daily entitled "Balkans war suit thrown out. Judge dismisses
lawsuit, says plaintiffs lack standing."
On the matter of petitioning the
Legislature about unconstitutional abuse of the law making process and their
oaths of office, the Foundation offers an insightful analysis contributed by
Mike Bodine analyzing the two-day October 2002, House International Relations
Committee hearing "authorizing"
(unconstitutionally) the President to
initiate war against Iraq.
Consider the full implications of the comment
made by Chairman Henry Hyde:
- "It is fascinating to go back in history and see how our
- was drafted and what it means. There are things in the

of war is one."
Also of particular note in the proceeding's transcript is
Rep. Ron Paul (Texas) who, although brave enough to publicly, and aggressively,
confront the Constitutional problems arising out of the Committee's actions,
failed to have the fortitude to actually vote for his own proposed amendment
which was a direct, formal, and constitutionally proper, declaration of war

Indeed, the government's
refusal to grant redress at every turn leaves us but ONE peaceful option -

Hyde makes the following admission which he reiterates:

destruction of that which so many of our countrymen have died for.
