By Paul E. Vallely – Major General, US Army Ret., CEO Stand Up America US (SUA)
Our Federal Government continues down the path of destroying America. American Patriots must now Stand UP and put America back on the track. The Federal Government has not subsided in “sucking the oxygen” out of America and its people with legislation and without required action to solve our problems
The National Call to Action of the people begins now! And we call to action all branches of government to do your constitutional duties and not be led astray in the cultural and moral decay of America. We have witnessed far too many lies, deception and corruption in the Republic.
Start immediately to cut the government bureaucracy and structure by 25%… Eliminate all unnecessary departments of Energy, Homeland Security, Education, the Federal Reserve and EPA and return the functions to the private sector and the states. Eliminate the IRS and institute a “fair or flat tax”. Initiate the relocation of the United Nations to Athens Greece or a third world country and cut back the funding of this corrupt and ineffective institution.
Implement an effective national security policy and “forward strategy to defend America’s interests against the threat of Shariah (Islamic law), a nuclear Iran and North Korea, and Islamic terror. Defend our borders and take on the onslaught of the drug cartels, illegal immigrants, and terrorists now pouring into our country.
Finally, pass term limits for Congress, Eliminate all earmarks and pass state assistance programs in one piece of legislation yearly. Balance the budget and move to a more effective Federal Reserve System or eliminate it all together. Slice deeply all foreign aid programs to countries not deserving of our good will. All countries must earn our aid so they will start off with a zero balance each year. Stop the military out of ‘Nation Building’ but ensure we fight to win the battles we must.
I could go on with many other recommendations to get our country back on track. The above is just a taste of what can be done! Disallow all lobbyists and special interests groups. You politicians, the President and all the Federal and State Bureaucracies work only for the People, no one else!
You see, we do not need you other than to represent us, the People, and abide by and protect the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. The Declaration of Independence states: “To secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to affect their Safety and Happiness.
“I am the master of my fate; I am the captain of my soul.” From the Poem “Invictus” by English poet William Ernest Henley (1849–1903) that was penned in 1875.
Yes, America, WE are the Masters of our Fate and the Captains of our Soul.” on burns and self-destructs before our very eyes but now you are starting to awaken.
The majority of the country and its citizens have experienced and seen our inept and incompetent leadership In Washington!
The battle is on and we shall not retreat.
We will not permit the leaders in the White House and Halls of Congress to lead us down a road of Progressive Socialism and destruction of the Republic. The Patriotic Revolution that I forecasted well over a year ago is happening now.
We Constitutionalists face a battle that is unknown to our generations so we must be aggressive in our collective efforts to continue to turn back the tide. The Fate of the country is now in our hands and the plea from the majority of our citizens is to enforce the Constitution, severely limit the Federal Government and it’s out of control spending. There is a growing list of documented violations of the Constitution and their Oath of Office by current elected and appointed government officials
Lincoln issued this warning in his inaugural address, “Any people anywhere, being inclined and having the power, have the right to rise up and shake off the existing government and form a new one. This is a most valuable and sacred right – a right which we hope and believe is to liberate the world.”
Being a representative republic, not a democracy, and “rising up” means other than revolution by use of arms. The people must “rise up” (Stand Up) from the grass roots across this great country as we think of the greater good of this and future generations. We are limited in the peaceful transfer of power…resignation, elections, and impeachment. That is why the Patriotic Revolution and Patriotic Union must take place to ensure survival of the Union.
The oath is simple and reads: “I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same, that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion, and that I will faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
Sadly, we have seen them violate their oath. Fraud, lying, and corruption are rampant and some have engaged in treasonous activities, and they effectively thumb their noses at us and have sold you to the highest bidder.
The Articles of Confederation were replaced with the Constitution, which granted the federal government enough authority to cultivate, promote and secure the Blessings of Liberty. The balance of authority and individual liberty was understood. Power was confined to that which was enumerated in the Constitution with a certain and meaningful intent for check and balances. We must make it a local imperative and movement….of the People…by the People… and For the People.
“We, the People” have had enough. Enough is Enough. The Obama White House and identifiable Members of Congress must now depart from a progressive socialist and treasonous death march and bankrupting the country beyond expectations. We have watched them violate their sacred oath of office. “We, the People” cannot solely depend on the results of the elections.
It is now that many of these public servants (and you know who they are) must put the people and country interests above self-interest by resigning and stepping down immediately. A civil uprising is still not out of the question as “pain” grips the country more each day. Hopefully, our future will reflect the citizens changed the tide in a peaceful way.
This means raising your voice now to your neighbors, family, co-workers, and friends. Be the Captains of your Souls. I pray for another George Washington to appear within the year and lead us. This is a National Call to Action.
