If we as a nation, are truly serious about saving the
dream of our forefathers' republic, then I would suggest we seriously get busy, because
yesterday is already behind us, and yet each and every day more is done to
take more of our freedoms away from us.
Since 9/11, more laws have been enacted in the US to restrict
personal freedom and constitutional rights, than at any other time before in
this nation's history.
As recent history has clearly shown us, we can no longer
expect our elected representatives to write good laws for us. It appears that we
now have to do that ourselves. That is the topic for this article.
As an example, just look at what your Congress has done to
you under the guise of saving democracy and making you safe, through the
shameless use of fear and unchecked terror...
The PATRIOT Act
Homeland Security Act
FISA Amendments Act
The Military Commissions Act
The Homegrown Terrorism Act (rolled into other
Intelligence Reform & Terrorism Prevention Act
This is just a short list of some of the overly egregious legislation
conceived by our misguided political representatives, that has compromised the America that we all once knew,
just since 9/11.
Former SCOTUS selected President George W. Bush once said, "There will be no
going back to the era before 9/11." but that's absolute bullshit, plain and
simple, and you have to recognize that.
What leader tells its people after a national disaster that all hope is lost,
and that there is no going back
to society as it was before?
Who does that?
As history as our witness, the only leadership failure in that regard that
immediately comes to mind is George W. Bush after 9/11.
That should make it pretty clear to all that the powers that be (TPTB)
higher up do not want the old America back.
So, unless we strive to take back what was stolen from us, then we will truly never
see that day again, but if we take the initiative to write the bills ourselves,
and then force our representatives to vote on them, a lot would become much
clearer as to who is working for this country, versus working against
How different our lives would be today, but for the efforts of our ever helpful
If George HW Bush hadn't conceived the DPG... initiated NAFTA... or the 1208 Program... or lied about
Kuwait to move the US to war...
If Bill Clinton hadn't allowed NAFTA... or the 1122 and 1033 programs... or
Gramm-Leach-Bliley... or lied to us about Kosovo...
If George W Bush hadn't allowed the PATRIOT Act... or the AUMF... or the
Military Commissions Act... or hadn't signed the SPP... or lied to us about Iraq
If Obama hadn't allowed the NDRP... or the SIP.... or signed off on NDAA 2012...
or lied to us about Syria or Libya...
That's a lot of "if's."
The point is, there has been far too much legislation since 9/11 that is clearly
not in the best interest of "we the people."
Everything has been geared towards the government taking more power for itself. Government
under George W. Bush increased exponentially in the span of just a few years,
and has maintained in full under Obama.
As I've said many times before...
The Taliban did not steal your freedoms, rescind Habeas Corpus, or challenge our
Al Qaeda did not sign the PATRIOT ACT, the NDRP, or the FISA Amendments Act.
ISIS is not the organization that is listening in on your phone calls and
reading your emails, or surveilling you in public.
With all due respect... let's be glaringly clear about the facts of the US
demise... our chicken-shit bought-and-paid-for crooked politicians have done all
of this to us, along with rogue factions within our government.
They are the ones who did this to us, not foreign terrorists.
With that said, here are seven proposed new bills, all of which are still in
their infancy, but all with very obvious intent and purpose.
The idea is to design something that Congress cannot say no to, lest it risk
exposing its true allegiance to big $$$ and TPTB.
These bills aren't designed with the intent to protect a government entity or
corporate interests or the fortunes of the ultra-wealthy parasites who plague
this country. These bills are written to clarify the obvious which has never
been clarified before. These bills are about protecting "we the people,"
of all shapes, size, color, ethnicity and religion.
FYI, the Citizens Protection Act was already submitted in an earlier
abridged form TWICE to Congressman John Kline and Senator Al Franken of
Minnesota months ago, both of whom have yet to reply or acknowledge receipt of
Here are the Seven New Bills Proposed:

Bill Proposals to Help Right the US:
#1 The Citizens Protection Act
We the people, in order to form
a more perfect union, adopt the
principles set forth herein, as
official regulatory rules and guidelines, in order to establish
a safe, uninhibited living environment for all, and as such thus
hereby declare that any and all government actions towards the
people, causing undo mental and/or physical duress,
intimidation, violence, harm or hardship in any manner or form,
shall be deemed as illegal, when it threatens the well being of
Any government action against
the people, whether through its own culpability or through its
own indifference, shall be considered as
contrary to the official oath
of office and the appointed charge of duty, and as such shall be held
as a criminal act and thereby is punishable by law.
Any US law set in secret,
duplicity crafted and/or deceitfully represented to the people,
that falls against our forefathers' declaration of independence
and resulting United State Constitution, shall be considered
null and void.
Let it be established that a
designation of "National Security" can only be made when it does
not harm or threaten "we the people" in any manner or
form, since the security of the people is the utmost
charge of our defense and intelligence agencies.
Let it also be clarified that
any defense, intelligence, or LEA that states or implies a duty
to the nation instead of the people, is contrarian in
their thinking, because the term "the nation," by
Constitutional right, infers to the body populace of "we the
people," not a government.
Any government operation that
is harmful to the people, whether through civil means,
scientific experimentation, or intelligence and/or military
application, shall be prohibited by law, under penalty of
Any restriction of information
from the public under the premise of
“National Security” shall be
deemed an illegal, unlawful act, and as such, expressly
prohibited, whenever it threatens, and/or violates
Constitutional rights, and/or endangers the well being of "we
the people," to which the government and military are
legally sworn to
Any law or legislation
allowing, and/or supporting such conflicting
actions of duty, shall be
considered as unlawful, and thus, null and
void, whenever they are in
violation of the care and preservation of
the civilian populace.
Any action deemed harmful or
threatening to "we the people,"
primarily to its civilians, but
secondly, to also include enlisted service and government
personnel, shall, by law, be considered a criminal and
This act herby re-institutes
and reaffirms a sovereign United States
government, of the people, by
the people, and for the people.
#2 Robin Hood Act
(Financial Reparations & Recovery Bill)
In accordance with racketeering
and antitrust legislation, all
institutions doing business in
the US, whether corporate or private,
are liable for taxes under the
same tax jurisdiction as "we the
people," and as such are
to be held accountable for all monies
withheld during their operation
in this country.
All wealth accumulated through
unlawful monopoly, improper financial trading, or illegal
criminal means is to be repaid to the United States Treasury
Department, to pay down unpaid government debt.
Any laws releasing corporations
and private institutions from
obligation for restitution of environmental
and economic disasters shall be
considered null and void.
A re-opening of the following
incomplete Congressional hearings into nefarious activities of
the US ultra-wealthy shall take place until a full and thorough
investigation has been properly executed:
Committee to investigate the “Money Trust”
Commission - investigates Wall Street Crash
Committee – impetus for US involvement in WWI
McCormack-Dickstein Committee – US fascist coup
Kilgore Committee – US funding of Hitler/Nazi’s
Investment Bankers Case [US v. Morgan]
Committee “Dodd Report” – tax-exempt foundations
Any and all monies found to be
of ill-gotten gain are to be seized
by the United States Treasury
Department, for reparation of US debt.
Social Security Act
(Soc Sec Repayment Bill)
Let it be understood that
Social Security is a forced contract,
requiring federal registration
of civilians, as well as a mandatory
garnishing of their salaries.
You are given no option in
As a direct result, a legal
trust has been established in accordance with the social
security act of 1935, yet violated numerous times over, again
and again, by previous sessions of Congress.
It is hereby proclaimed that no
legislation be set forth against the
Social Security Act, until all
monies taken from this legal
trust have been repaid to the fund and to the people.
In deference to the fact that
this legal trust has been violated
many times over and over, it
therefore cannot be amended or shut
down until all monies taken
have been repaid to the system.
is not a tenable argument to have the system closed down, just
because it was impoverished through Congressional raiding.
They don't close a bank just to cover up the fact that it has
been robbed of all its money. They get the money bank. It's what
TPTB would do to you and I, so we should clearly do it back to
them in like fashion, and demand that our money is returned in
All congress members that were
a part of the raiding of the Social
Security trust, shall forfeit
their government pensions and benefits,
or a commensurate portion, to
pay back all monies taken under their Congressional stewardship.
Any social security money used
for investment, and/or for corporate
and/or private interest, is to
be paid back in full, with all associated
profits and interest.
Only upon full repayment and
reimbursement of all monies taken from this trust, can the
charter for said trust be re-evaluated.
If the trust is to be done away
with, then all monies seized under
payroll garnishing are to be
paid back to all citizens involved, with appropriate interest
Wall Street Act
(Financial Crimes Accountability Bill)
All institutions found to have
contributed to the destabilization of the
US economy are to be held
liable under the laws of criminal
racketeering, collusion and
Institutions found to be in
criminal conduct shall be closed and all monies will be seized
to pay back frauded US investors, with any leftover applied to
the outstanding US debt.
Investigations must be
re-opened into the 1929 economic collapse, as well as that of
All parties found associated in
deliberate unfair market exploitation or financial fraud in any
form shall be held accountable and will be prosecuted to the
full extent of the law and held accountable for all financial
damages, and as such are liable for all monetary reparations.
Government Accountability Act
(Gov Treason Bill)
All government officials and
politicians directly responsible for
legislation or programs
contrary to our forefather's declaration of
independence and its resulting
United States Constitution are to be
fully investigated under the
laws of treason.
All those found responsible or
directly associated with the proliferation of laws that have
undermined the sovereignty of the country, its economic
stability, and/or the US Constitution and its ensuing Bill of
Rights, shall also be investigated under
18 U.S. Code Chapter 115 - TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE
and prosecuted to the full extent of the law if found guilty.
Unchecked Presidential Power
The office of the president has
accrued dictatorial powers since 9/11, powers that were never
intended for one man. These power must be rescinded immediately.
The office shall be returned to its previous state, as
envisioned and sanctioned by our founding fathers. The use of
Executive Orders shall be revised with safeguards and check and
checks and balances, with Congressional veto power.
Partisan Favor from SCOTUS
One major change needs to be made to the
Supreme Court... remove the partisanship that has no place in
the highest court in the land, a place where decisions are
supposed to be made on noble principle and unbiased judgment.
The prudent move would be to add one more justice and balance
this horrendously flawed system by making the partisanship
equal... with four Republicans and four Democrats. If a justice
ignores their duty and shows biased partisanship and continually rules with their own personal
party preference, they must be removed from the court and
replaced with an impartial justice of the same party.
we're at it, we could get rid of a few laws too, like all of the
post-9/11 bullcrap put in place to specifically neuter our
Military Commissions Act
Cancel all SOE's
Renew Glass-Steagal Act
Rescind Proclamation 7463
Review all Executive Orders
Rescind and Revise NDAA plans
This is but jut the tip of the
iceberg. It's a damn good start though.
One other HUGE change... term limits for
Congress to stop the perpetual corruption cycle.
Another thing would be to rescind the right
of corporate personhood, and with that, Citizens United would
The point here is this... there are steps
that we can address that will give us the real "change" that we
truly serious as a people about regaining our country, then we
need to undo the laws that they made behind our backs, those
that make it legal for them to do what they do to us. It
seems to this author, these proposed bills would be a great
place to start.
feel free to copy, paste and email these bill proposals to your
elected representative, or make altogether new bills of your

we'd better write these laws ourselves, because our Congress has
done a piss-poor job to this point of identifying the real needs
of "we the people."
we possibly do any worse?
anything, it will definably show you how our esteemed Congress
feels about real change, that will benefit their constituents,
instead of corporate lobbyists and their big-money $$$ campaign
write the bills ourselves, and see what they do with them.
