Operation American Spring - President's Day Press Release
OAS Press Release
President's Day, 2014
“When injustice becomes Law, resistance becomes duty.” - Thomas Jefferson
The United States of America faces a Constitutional crisis of immense proportions. Unimaginable, some say. Yet our Founders not only faced the same sorts of enemies, foreign and domestic, but presciently warned us in no uncertain terms of the dangers we would encounter.
At the time of our Founding, America numbered around 3 million in 13 colonies. Somehow, some 100,000 Founding Fathers and Mothers found a way to shake off the yoke of tyranny. 3% is all it took, with approximately 30% following them.
Now it's 2014, with 50 states and over 315 million people. 3% is more than 10 million patriots!
Who will save this (and perhaps future) great nation from spiraling into the abyss?
Statist status-quo politicians?
Progressive Democrats? Progressive Republicans? None of them step up to stop President Obama from writing and enforcing illegal and Unconstitutional Executive Orders. This new American tyrant is applauded in the halls of power, even as he makes their representative roles moot. They actively assist their own neutering, and continually pass Unconstitutional laws to do the same to the People. Even the few Patriots in the House of Representatives are unwilling to impeach, because they understand the Senate will not convict.
They have taken on activism as their unwarranted mandate, making up rights as they go along, ignoring rights that pre-exist the Declaration and Constitution and are clearly spelled out. They turn a blind eye to Executive lawlessness and share his disdain for Constitutional limits to government power.
The roughly 50% of Americans who have allowed themselves to sink into dependence to Federal largesse; bread paid for today with dollars borrowed from those not yet born?
Sworn as they are to uphold and defend the Constitution, they are nonetheless subject to strict discipline and follow orders. Orders emanating from the corrupt, administered and passed along by a new cadre of military leaders, who replace those unwilling to carry out illegal orders. Significant numbers of leaders, in all branches, have been purged for just this purpose.
Hordes of “Dreamers”, illegal invaders whose vision of the American Dream is a government handout, in return for loss of liberty they've never known and do not cherish?
The pundits of the mainstream Media? Professors in the groves of Academe? Progressives, all. They cheerlead and cheerfully misinform the People at every turn. They willfully ignore “inconvenient truth”. Are we to rely on that small number of patriots who actually tell it like it is? They are too few, and have no power save that of the bully pulpit.
Can our Constitution defend itself?
Although the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights are timeless and powerful, they are really nothing more than mere words on parchment, unless We the People DEMAND they be followed!
Even that Progressive icon, Eleanor Roosevelt, understood the greatness of our first President, George Washington, and the struggles and sacrifices his Winter Soldiers faced.
“To me, the days at Valley Forge best show the stuff of which Washington was made. He went through great discouragement, with an Army that was ragged, poorly fed and never warm, with insufficient ammunition, and with a divided government back of him which often provided no money with which to pay his soldiers.
His soldiers were deeply concerned about their homes and families. Because they knew that food would be lacking at home if the seeds were not planted and the harvest garnered, they frequently asked to go home in groups which made the strength of his army uncertain, even though they promised to return.
What vision Washington must have had of the future to make him fight the Revolution through to victory! No wonder he was tired at the end, no wonder he longed to join his wife and live in peace at Mount Vernon. How simple the little problems of farm management must have seemed as he labored at his desk at Valley Forge!”
There is only ONE solution. We, the People, the bold, brave patriots, the 3%, desperate to regain and retain liberty for ourselves and our posterity, must make ourselves heard. We must use whatever means at our disposal, short of violence for now, to end the betrayals of our alleged “leaders”. We, too, have pens and phones. We, too, have money in small donations to more than match the deep pockets of fat-cats. We have more than these. We have the ability to but boots on the ground in Washington, DC and State Capitals across America, in numbers far larger than any that governments can muster.
We call upon the People to join us in DC, beginning on May 16, 2014. We, the People, DEMAND Federal accountability! We DEMAND their dismissal or resignation from office!
Operation American Spring is coming. We will remake and retake America as it was intended to be, that Shining City on a Hill. We WILL win. For we MUST win.
