a project 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. Responsibilities “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! Our Constitution, the “great barrier” designed to defend our rights, has been breached; a problem characterized by thirty Republican governors on 11/22/1994 when they alleged"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 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. 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 in order 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 face the consequences. 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. A prime objective of the RELIVING 1776 initiative is the creation of this nationwide team.
A National Leadership Team (NLT) composed of men and women who agree with the governor’s allegation, who will support their pledge, and who agree with the core beliefs identified in attachment 1 is needed. The NLT’s mission is to provide and oversee the implementation of a plan designed to aid concerned Americans in TAB. A tool to facilitate the needed networking are Political Action Coordinating Conferences. (see www.thecnc.org/PACCs.htm )
A National Implementation Team (NIT) whose mission is to execute the plan, policies, procedures, and programs established by the NLT is needed.
National Objective Pursuit Teams (OPT) [see www.thecnc.org/OPTs.htm ] whose mission are to develop and coordinate the execution of plans designed to satisfy objectives lying on the critical path to our goal.
The mission of state, county and local OPTs 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 NLT and NIT.
FUNCTIONSEvery TAB team must function as an educator to inform voters of important issues and objectives and 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.
NLT functions include providing and orchestrating the implementation of the TAB plan, staffing the NIT and national OPTs; defining the 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; and hosting semi-annual In Process Reviews (IPRs)/PACCs to assess progress, build support, and identify new problems perceived by networking organizations.
NIT functions include creating and maintaining: a web site; a communications system capable of timely reaching every TAB teams 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; and maintaining lists of organizations invited to help develop and implement the TAB plan, those accepting the invitation and those refusing to help TAB.
LOCAL TAB TEAMS -THE KEY TO VICTORY
To realize the RELIVING 1776 goal, ACE and the CNC think that a minimum of 25,000 local TAB teams will be needed. Every Individual and organization supporting the goal should encourage their contacts to join or create a local team within their political precinct, church, neighborhood, etc. To facilitate networking the NIT will have a computer program through which people can find others in their geographical area who share their concern and wish to help TAB. It will also permit the NIT to communicate with every TAB team or sub sets thereof; the OPT members, the friendly medial outlets helping to implement the plan, and with affiliated groups supporting the project. The creation of such a program is underway.
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 thought to have caused thirty Republican governors to allege that “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, and patriotic etc.) to help TAB and notifying the members of the organizations of their leadership’s decision;
* 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;
* Identifying issues of local concern and preparing and implementing plans to address them;
* Assuring jurors are fully informed of their rights;
* Helping to obtain ballot status for worthy candidates and political parties;
* Initiating and/or supporting responsible legal initiatives;
* Initiating and/or supporting recall actions directed at unworthy officials;
