Time magazine recently featured Bob Schulz on the


cover of their magazine. Schulz was characterized as
belonging to a new movement of violent militias. I
happen to be a subscriber to the We The People
Foundation and have followed Bob Schulz.

un-enforced immigration laws, warrantless searches
and surveillance of private papers and
communications, slave-like direct non-apportioned
taxes on labor, a monetary currency conjured out of
limitless debt, the giving and lending of public money
and credit to private corporations for decidedly private
purposes, the absence of a “well-regulated militia” in
every State (mandated by the first thirteen words of
the Second Amendment) and a privately owned
central bank known as the Federal Reserve.

It is these violations of our “Charters of Freedom,”


that are fueling the voices of dissent. Liberty is a
force of Nature. It cannot be subdued.

Most disturbing perhaps is TIME's publication of false


statements, harmful to me and the We The People
Foundation For Constitutional Education, Inc., and
designed to detract from our intelligent, rational and
professional defense of the Constitution.

Not only does the article falsely brand me as an


advocate edging "anti-government" patriots "closer to
violence," Gellman and the editors at TIME, violate
every principle of journalistic responsibility by failing
to accurately report the substance of numerous hours
of personal interviews TIME conducted with me,
supported by hundreds of pages of legal and
historical documentation that I provided to Gellman
and TIME.

The public record I have established over three


decades clearly shows that I have always advocated
the use of peaceful, non-violent resistance in
defense of the Constitution. Any person who has
ever heard me speak, including Gellman, has heard
me hold up the examples and teachings of Gandhi
and Martin Luther King, Jr.

Our Foundation's legal research and litigation, which


stretches over many years is an open book to anyone
who visits the archives on our website, as Gellman
indicated to me he had done. Our focus has been
based squarely on the historical context, purpose and
full exercise of the last of the five Rights guaranteed
by the First Amendment.

Gellman knows that each of our First Amendment


Petitions for Redress have cited a specific provision
of the Constitution, included a factual account of
violations of that provision and sought a remedy to
the violation. There were nine Petitions for Redress
submitted over a fourteen year period, not “hundreds”
as the article states.

TIME knows our work in defense of the Constitution


has always been rooted in the Rights of the People
and the obligations of the Government under the last
ten words of the First Amendment. Known as the
accountability clause, those words guarantee the
Right of the People to PEACEFULLY hold the
Government accountable to the rest of the
Constitution. Understandably, the Government would
have the Right forever remain the “Forgotten Right.”
But why TIME?

In point of fact, it is our research into the fundamental


RIGHT of the People to hold their servant
government accountable through the First
Amendment Petition clause, and the Foundation's
aggressive litigation, high-visibility protests and
educational efforts that have drawn the iron fist of the
IRS. However, any Right that is not enforceable is no
Right.

The article's dismissive note regarding the Supreme


Court's refusal to hear the Foundation's case fails to
convey the critical fact, known by TIME, that the
purpose of the landmark federal lawsuit was for the
Supreme Court to declare - for the first time in history
- the constitutional meaning of the First Amendment's
Petition/Accountability clause.

That's correct. I, and other Americans who stood


with me, wanted nothing more than our modern day
Supreme Court to declare the legal meaning, effect
and significance of the government accountability
clause of the First Amendment. The Supreme Court
refused to settle the “first impression” constitutional
question. We provided Gellman a direct quote from
the 1821 Supreme Court decision of Cohens v.
Virgina, 19 U.S. 264, 265, holding it was "treason to
the Constitution" for the Court to refuse to hear a
case it is constitutionally required to hear.
Disturbingly, TIME would have its readers believe
that I was the source of the quote.

Far from being "anti-government" and advocates of


violence, the very purpose of the We The People
organization is to educate Americans regarding the
history, meaning, effect and significance of every
clause of the Constitution, including the accountability
through peaceful Petition process clause of the First
Amendment.

The essence of Liberty and the enjoyment of


fundamental Rights is predicated upon the Rule of
Law and the Right of the People to hold their
(servant) government accountable. It is our
Declaration of Independence which 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 abolish it ….”

In denying the public an accurate portrayal of the


motivations of those depicted in the article, TIME
serves only to deprive the People of vital knowledge
regarding a peaceful means -- perhaps the only
peaceful means remaining, to restore constitutional
governance carried out in decency and good order.

On March 13, 1962 while addressing the diplomatic


corps of the Latin American republics, President John
F. Kennedy stated, "Those who make peaceful
revolution impossible will make violent revolution
inevitable."

If TIME truly abhors the initiation of violence, as I do,


it should do everything possible to help inform the
American People about their possession of a
fundamental Right that can be exercised to restore
the Constitution through peaceful, non-violent
means.

This is the legacy our Founders left us in the First


Amendment Right to Petition. They even told us how
to do it in the 1774 Journals of the Continental
Congress (quoting):

“If money is wanted by Rulers who have in any


manner oppressed the People,
they may retain it until their grievances are
redressed,
and thus peaceably procure relief, without
trusting to despised petitions
or disturbing the public tranquility.”
Journals of the Continental Congress (1774), 1:105-
113

time to read our archives, dating back to 1999, our
every action and Government’s every response, are

My article is not an endorsement of Bob Schulz nor


the We The People Foundation. I believe, in fairness,
you should know what Bob has to say in response to
the article.

In past history when a country trended towards


dictatorship and imperialism anyone who dares speak
of following the Constitution and guaranteeing civil
rights was demonized in the media and by the
government. Naomi Wolf warns of the signs of a
fascist society. I saw a few of her speeches two years
ago. The warnings she gives seem to be ringing truer
as the lies spew out of the beast of the military
industrial complex.

Please make sure to vote out the tired, corrupt


Washington regulars this November and replace
them with some independents who will restore the
Constitution and the freedoms that define America.
