SHOW ME THE LAW
We're going to cover an area now which I know will drive
the public servants at the funny farm up a tree. This is one
of those deals where it will require massive involvement and
response by all of us.
Whenever you see any legislation passed or pending in
the Congress, get on their case. Demand to know where they
found the permission in our Constitution for their actions.
Whenever you hear glowing words about balanced budget
amendments from little George or anyone else at the White
House, remind them all they need do is stop illegal spending
of our tax dollars. Question, question, and question some
Many from Congress are bailing out after all the flap
about their banking privileges and practices. Now we need to
make it uncomfortable for others who think they are omni-
potent. Perhaps we can elect honest and honorable men to
Another thing we have to get after is the pensions these
jerks have setup for themselves. These figures are obscene!
Most members of congress retire with more money than they
were making while 'working' in congress, many by double
what they were making. Did I mention making laws which makes
it legal for them to steal? Yes, I guess I did. $55,000 a
year is pretty much a low figure for their retirement checks.
We sure are generous employers. That's only $1,058 a week.
I'm sure they don't consider $1000 a week as too much money.
Some make well over $100,000 a year . . . can you
imagine paying these yoyo's that much money to sit in
congress for those years figuring out ways to give us the
shaft? That's what we're doing friends . . . well, that's
not accurate. We're not doing it . . . they're doing it to
us . . . again!
The Constitution says 'they shall receive a compensation
for their services, to be ascertained by law, and paid out of
the Treasury of the United States.' (Art I, Sec 6) Does
that say anything about retirement? Or is it a case again of
sick legal minds stretching a phrase out of context which
puts the frosting on their cakes? If not illegal, this is
certainly not in keeping with the letter and spirit of the
Another area where they are thumbing their noses at all
Americans is this business of keeping all the money which was
donated to their election campaigns. They have passed a law
(to legalize more stealing) which allows them to either keep
or return all monies which they received through the years to
get reelected. In most cases of these clowns who are bailing
out (or being forced out) of congress, it involves thousands
and thousands of dollars! What do they care if you think it
is illegal or immoral? Hypocrisy abounds in DC!
When do we say enough is enough?
James Madison said he is unable to conceive that the
people of America, in their present temper, or under any
circumstances that can speedily happen, will choose, and
every second year repeat the choice of, sixty-five or a
hundred men who would be disposed to form and pursue a scheme
of tyranny or treachery. (Paper No. 55) Poor man must be
rolling in his grave today. Diogenes, where are you?
Of course, Madison was talking about electing represen-
tatives, not senators. But since the election of senators is
illegal, (See Volume 1 of The Traitor Within The Gates) we
should accept his words at face value. How can we continue
to sent these clowns back year after year?
Let's get back to demanding to know where their permit
for certain legislation is to be found . . .
This demand can be in the form of phone calls, letters
to their Washington offices or by use of the Petition For
Redress. The petition is included in this book and can be
printed by any printer. Fill in your demand and ask that you
be informed about the clause in the constitution which they
feel gives them the right to enact or even consider legisla-
The petition or a note will be more effective if it is
hand written. I feel the petition is better for our purposes
because it includes the Tenth Amendment. This shows them we
know what their limitations are. If you write a note, I
suggest you write out the amendment for the same reason. It
also gives them a chance to read their own restrictions.
At any rate, it should not sound like you are copying a
form letter. They are bound by their protocol to answer.
Being hand written makes them feel that your letter or
petition counts for at least 1000 votes . . . they feel you
will influence that many people with your views.
Letters addressed as follows should reach your senators
(The name of your senators)
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510
(The name of your representative)
United States House of Representatives
Washington, DC 20515
I say it 'should' reach members of Congress . . . but
after all the revelations about the operation of the post
office at the Congressional building . . . I wouldn't hold my
Whenever you hear about garbage like the 'Clean Air
Act', or that any $10,000 transactions must be reported to
the IRS, or bank bailouts, or making new government corpora-
tions, or making the purchase of all vitamins by prescription
only . . . or similar nonsense, ask where their authority is
found. Just tell them, show me where it is . . . cite the
section and clause which specifically gives power to pass the
precise legislation being considered.
If, through our efforts, we could get only one percent
of all Americans to use this technique, the clowns in Wash-
ington would have to sit up and take note. As I pointed out
in the article on taxes, they can easily sit on one petition
and nothing is accomplished. We need the reactions of
bunches of people.
We all know people are tired of the way our government
is being run. This gives us another tool to keep tabs on the
yoyo's who are giving us the royal shaft.
Let me point out . . . when you receive a response to
your petition, letter or phone call, don't be satisfied with
the answer you receive without checking out the document.
Don't fall into a trap and agree with what they say is their
Much of what will be returned will be written by a staff
member. Most of these staff members are lawyers and they
will do their utmost to rationalize their actions and at the
same time justify their jobs. They use the Congressional
Research Service extensively which also will do whatever it
takes to explain and justify the action Congress takes.
Being forewarned is being forearmed. And we do know
Dig out a copy of the Constitution and lay their reply
against the document and see whether or not you agree with
their answer. If you don't agree (and I'm sure after these
two volumes you'll be able to figure it out yourself) write
them and tell them where you disagree. Again, tell them,
These people are so far from mainstream America that
they have to be told in no uncertain terms . . . This is not
your country, it's our country! This is not your government,
it's our government! Obey our laws.
Again, I point out the three functions of our govern-
ment as enumerated in the document, (1) Defend our shores,
(2) Deliver our mail and (3) Stay the hell out of our lives!
