NATIONAL CALL TO ACTION SERIES
by Maj. Gen. Paul E. Vallely (Ret.)
(Apr. 23, 2011) — As the Declaration of Independence states:
That 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.
The arrogance of power and incompetence in Washington has generated this dissent I and protest. Elitism and wasteful spending of tax-payers’ dollars is no longer to be tolerated.
Each member of the House of Representatives, the United States Senate and even the President of the United States place their hands on the Bible, raise their hands to the square and swear on their sacred honor to protect, defend and serve the people of the United States. Sadly, we see them in violation of their oaths. They know who they are as do the people. We should see a massive resignation demand on the steps of the capital and the call for the Impeachment of Barack Obama. We should be seeing them groveling before those who instilled their faith and trust in them by electing them to public service and seeking forgiveness. Most have violated the Constitution of the United and many are guilty of treason. Fraud and corruption is rampant in the use of the people’s money.
We the people have had enough of this current Government, elected officials and appointees. They (not the American People) are on a progressive socialist suicide march. WE, the people have watched the President and his Cabinet, Congress and other bureaucrats defile our founding documents and sacred principles for several years now with no end in sight. In 1789, Thomas Jefferson was overheard saying to Madison, “Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves therefore are its only safe depositories.” While no Leader can ever be held blameless, we MUST insist that you resign from office immediately.”
In Lincoln’s 1861 Inaugural address, he issued this warning to his peers, “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”.
IMPEACHMENT, RESIGNATION AND RECALL must be conducted by the People of those elected and appointed political leaders who have violated the Constitution, which states in Article One, Section Five, Clause II “Each House may determine the Rules of its Proceedings, punish its Members for disorderly behavior, and with the concurrence of a 2/3 vote, expel a member.”
The Constitution and the States, however, provide the people the right and authority to do either of the following:
Per the 10th amendment to decide domestic matters within individual states, also grants the right to the state to refuse federal aid and to sever from the Federal Government’s authority entirely or per Article Two, Section Four, “The President, Vice President and ALL CIVIL OFFICERS of the United States shall be removed from office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery or other high crimes and misdemeanors.
The current oath of office was enacted in 1884: The Oaths of Office is administered to:
“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) 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 well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.”
- When a young man or woman enlists in one of the armed forces, he or she takes an oath to protect and defend the United States of America.
- When an officer in any of the armed services raises his hand and takes an oath to protect and defend his or her country, the Officers are expected to keep the vow.
- When any officer of the court takes an oath to perform their duties it is done with an expectation they will do so.
Why not the same for any member of the United States Government, but especially those that are elected by the people? Each member of the House of Representatives, the United States Senate and even the President of the United States raise their hands and swear on their sacred honor to protect, defend and serve the people of the United States.
BERATING and CONDEMNING the United States before the world, overseas and in the United Nations is a flagrant violation of Trust.
If the impeachment and resignations do not occur then the American people must do their duty to God and Country and use the power of their votes and remove the violators from office. In the event there may be some doubt in certain individuals then for the good and welfare of the country ALL should go. We will start over. We will seek out those who have a strong desire to see America continue as created and designed by our Founding Fathers. It may be difficult to start over from scratch but it will certainly be better than the trashing of the Constitution.
The majority of American people have lost trust and faith in those they have elected to serve the country because they have abrogated their oaths, given comfort to the enemy both foreign and domestic. 535 men and women have sworn to serve the nation. They have willingly taken an oath to protect and serve and defend the people and interests of this great country. Sadly, we see them in violation of their oaths and the moral strength to do what needs to be done.
America, Act Now for our survival as our strong and trusted nation is in great jeopardy.
