I feel sick that not everybody got the message that the press conference had been cancelled; and that some brave patriots (including Paul Wheeler, dressed like a 1770′s patriot, and my old comrades Eric Barnes and Kurt St. Angelo) went to the Statehouse anyway.
While it looks like a good time was had by all…I apologize!
A lot of people had planned to drive two hours or more each way (including me and my family), and that made no sense on a sleet/snow/death day like Saturday, so I cancelled.
Attached is a copy of the letter I sent to the Governor in both hardcopy and digital form; and here’s roughly what I would’ve said at the press conference:
“On December 15, 1791, the Bill Of Rights was ratified to protect citizens from the threat of ungoverned government. Over the last two hundred and sixteen years, those precious laws have been twisted, inverted and …”interpreted” until they’ve been stolen from us, and our rights are now just an illusion.
We are here today to ask that our politicians keep their oaths of office. We say it’s time that all politicians and law enforcement personnel who swore to uphold and defend both the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of Indiana …do just that.
We ask, in short, that politicians obey written laws, as written. No exceptions. No provisos. No ifs, ands or buts.
Thank you. I will now take questions.”
Don’t worry; we’ll reschedule another event.
In the meantime, assemble your own proof of the abuses heaped upon us by politicians (that’s the easy part). And get ready.
Remember, the problem isn’t taxes, wire-tapping, wars, immigration, gay marriage, the Colts, or the Central Library expansion. Those are only symptoms.
This is certainly not about Mitch Daniels or even Ron Paul (even though I support Dr. No 100%). Ideas are bigger than people.
We must not nibble at the branches of our corruption tree, or be distracted by what are only the symptoms of our communal disease. We need to strike at the root of all of our most serious problems.
We need to treat the cause. We must ask for the law, as written, to be obeyed. Nothing else will do, you know. Nothing else has ever worked.Please pass this along. Shout it in the streets. And then get ready.
The next wave of citizen awakening is beginning.
It is time, now.
