an initiative of the
AMERICANS for CONSTITUTIONAL ENFORCEMENT (ACE)
On July 4, 1776, fifty six brave Americans signed the Declaration of Independence. In it we find “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” Subsequently, the Constitution of the United States was ordained and established to “provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”
The first three articles of the Constitution created the three branches of the Federal government as Agents of the states. Each branch was delegated specific and limited responsibilities. Those “not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States,” were “reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” (Constitution’s tenth amendment)
In referring to the Constitution, James Madison wrote: “The preservation of a Free government requires, not merely that the metes and bounds which separate each department of power be invariably maintained, but more especially that neither of them be suffered to overleap the great barrier which defends the rights of the people. The rulers who are guilty of such encroachment exceed the commission from which they derive their authority, and are tyrants. The people who submit to it are governed by laws made neither by themselves nor by an authority derived from them and are slaves….“
Today, Americans are governed by tyrants! The “great barrier” designed to defend our rights has been breached! This was admitted to by thirty governors on 11/22/1994 who agreed "Federal action has exceeded the clear bounds of its jurisdiction under the Constitution and thus violated rights guaranteed the people. The government of ‘limited, delegated powers’ envisioned by the framers has become a government of virtually unlimited power.” This unconstitutional “Federal action” has resulted in a counter revolution. Americans now live under the ten planks of the Communist Manifesto!
That’s the bad news! The good news is that we have the tools needed to Take America Back and "restore to the states and the people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed them under the Constitution;” the pledge of the governors and the goal of RELIVING 1776. What's lacking is leadership and people's willingness to do what's right!
Patriotic Americans must, and together can, make this goal a reality through unity of action on meaningful issues. We must do so for the sake of the entire world and to leave our posterity their birthright to Liberty. To reach this goal, we must build a team capable of assuring elected officials honor their oath of office and fiduciary responsibility or be replaced. The Take America Back (TAB) team will consist of many teams working with one another and operating at various geopolitical levels. Highlights of their mission and functions follow. The #1 objective of the RELIVING 1776 initiative is the creation of a nationwide team composed of these elements.
A National Leadership Team (NLT) composed of women and men who agree with the core beliefs cited in http://www.thecnc.org/Documents/Core.htm and wish to support the governor's pledge. The NLT’s mission is to: 1. provide and oversee the implementation of a plan designed to aid concerned Americans in Taking America Back and 2. function as a catalyst in inspiring individuals and organizations to work with one another in pursuit of important objectives lying of the critical path leading to our Republic's restoration. A tool to facilitate the needed networking are Political Action Coordinating Conferences. Information on these conferences is at www.thecnc.org/PACCs.htm.
A National Implementation Team (NIT) responsible for coordinating the execution of the plan, policies, procedures, and programs as established by the NLT.
An National Objective Pursuit Team [see www.thecnc.org/OPTs.htm ] for each major objective lying on our goal's critical path whose mission is to develop and coordinate the execution of a plan designed to satisfy its objective.
The State, county and local OPTs mission is to develop and implement plans designed to address issues of concern at their level of government, to support their counterparts at the national level, and to help implement the plans and programs developed by the National Leadership Team and the National Implementation Team.
FUNCTIONSEvery TAB team must function as an educator to inform voters of important issues and objectives related to them, of the TAB plan; as a catalyst to help create the teams needed to TAB; as an information clearing house for their contacts; as a synchronizer to assure timely unity of action among their contacts; and as a PACC sponsor/host.
The National Leadership Team functions include providing and overseeing implementation of the Take America Back plan, staffing the NIT and national Objective Pursuit Teams (OPTs); defining concepts, policies, and procedures to be followed in implementing the plan; assisting the NIT in identifying and preparing written material needed in support of the plan; helping to raise funds; timely acting on decision papers submitted to the NLT by the NIT and OPT team leaders; functioning as a catalyst to gain unity on issues/actions of common interest to various organizations and hosting semi-annual In Process Reviews (IPRs) to assess progress, build support, and identify new problems perceived by networking organizations.
National Implementation Team functions include creating and maintaining: a web site; a communications system capable of reaching every TAB team's director of communications; a “speakers roster” consisting of people qualified to address important issues and the TAB plan; arranging for NIT approved speakers to be interviewed; helping develop and coordinate the efforts of the state, county, and local TAB teams; planning and coordinating national PACCs; helping national OPT leaders develop and implement strategies and tactics in support of their objectives; establishing a National Patriotic Press Association (NPPA) composed of friendly media outlets; providing the NPPA newsworthy information; establishing and maintaining needed computer programs and data bases; maintaining lists of organizations invited to help develop and implement the TAB plan, a list of those accepting the invitation and a list of those refusing to help TAB.
LOCAL TAB TEAMS - THE KEY TO VICTORY
The CNC believes a minimum of 25,000 local TAB teams will be needed to satisfy the RELIVING 1776 goal. Every individual and organization supporting the goal should encourage their contacts to join or create a local team within their zip code area, church, neighborhood, etc. Registering a team with http://www.wealthmoney.org/ will aid registrants in locating others in their county and state in order to build the TAB team and facilitate unity of action. It will also permit the NIT to communicate with every TAB team or sub sets thereof; with OPT members, with friendly media outlets helping to implement the plan, and with affiliated groups supporting the project.
Local TAB team functions include:
* Being a “watch dog” over local government organizations on behalf of their community;
* Sponsoring and hosting PACCs; (see http://www.thecnc.org/PACCs.htm)
* Educating, energizing, organizing, synchronizing and synthesizing voters on issues; especially those that caused thirty governors to agree “Federal action has exceeded the clear bounds of its jurisdiction under the Constitution and this violated rights guaranteed the people;”
* Identifying and supporting qualified political candidates; (see www.thecnc.org/candidatequestionairre )
* Inviting local organizational leaders (veteran, religious, law enforcement, patriotic etc.) to help TAB and notifying the members of the local team of the decision of the invited organizations leadership;
* Gaining control of significant political parties through the election of precinct committee persons;
* Sponsoring or supporting local youth activities and informing their members of the need to TAB.
* educating government officials and petitioning them for redress of grievances;

* Assuring jurors are fully informed of their rights;
* Helping to obtain ballot status for worthy candidates and political parties;
