From the March 2007 Idaho Observer:

Remember, remember, the 11th of September

Are you sitting comfortably? Good. Then I’ll begin.

Right now, I imagine there are hundreds of soldiers rushing here to kill me because someone does not want us to talk.

They are afraid that I am going to say the things that are not supposed to be said. They are afraid that I am going to say the truth. The truth is that there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there? If you look about, you witness cruelty, injustice and despotism. But what do you do about it? What can you do?

You are but a single individual. How can you possibly make any difference? Individuals have no power in this modern world.

That is what you’ve been taught because that is what they need you to believe. But it is not true. This is why they are afraid and the reason that I am here; to remind you that it is individuals who always hold the power. The real power. Individuals like me. And individuals like you.

I have come to offer you a deal. If you accept, I will give you a different world. A world without curfews, without soldiers and surveillance systems. A world that is not run by other men, but that is run by you. I am offering you a second chance.

Four hundred years ago, a great citizen made a most significant contribution to our common culture. It was a contribution forged in secrecy and stealth although it is best remembered in noise and bright light.

To commemorate that glorious night at precisely the stroke of midnight, the edifice of their world will erupt with enough sound and fury to shake the earth. All I ask is that you join me at the gates to watch as the past is erased, the pathway cleared so that together we can start toward a new day.

But, you ask, who am I to make such promises? A fair question but hardly necessary, as you know me already. To know me any more, you need only look to a mirror.

Truth be told, this wasn’t even my idea, was it? If you think back, you’ll remember that night, whispering in your lover’s arms. I became a part of your plan just as you have now become part of mine...

The "story" above graces the top half of the frontpage on the hardcopy edition for March, 2007 and is wrapped around the "V" mask. The concept, inspired by Meria Heller, was taken from the extraordinary film V for Vendetta by the Wachowski brothers. It strikes to the heart of who we are and why we are allowing ourselves to be poisoned and controlled by the petty minions of the horrible men and women who perpetuate global war and human misery for profit. This unjust era will come to an end. The only question is if it will happen on our schedule or "theirs."Take the time to see the film. Put yourself in it. If so inspired, obtain the accoutrements and become a V.

Article I: Congress shall make no law....abridging....the right... to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

V goes (back) to Washington

The photo above was taken Nov. 14, 2006, while some 60 "Vs" convened to serve President Bush with petitions for redress of grievances pertaining to violations of war powers, taxing and money coinage clauses of the Constitution. On March 31, it is anticipated that 1,000 Vs will converge on the nation’s capital to deliver new petitions (see below).

Many people have told Bob Schulz of We the People Foundation for Constitutional Education that the Constitution is dead. His response is, "No it’s not—it’s right here in my hand and I am reading it."

The Constitution is admittedly not perfect, but it is a lot better than the deal we have now and, so long as the Constitution is alive in the heart of Bob Schulz...and you...and me..then it is not dead; anyone who insists that it is has just given up.

So now is the time to go back to school: "Class, open your pocket Constitution and read Article I of the first 10 amendments to the Constitution known as the "Bill of Rights."

In plain English, Article I says Congress shall make no laws prohibiting religious expression, free speech, freedom of the press, peaceable assembly or petitioning the government for redress of grievances.

Examples abound indicating the rights to religious freedom, freedom of speech, freedom of the press and to peaceably assemble are still in effect, though eroded and selectively tolerated. The right to petition is, however, at this time, gone.

Beginning in Nov., 2002, We the People properly and respectfully served petitions for redress on Congress, the Senate, the IRS director, the U.S. Attorney General, the secretary of state, the vice-president and the president. The petitions demanded answers to questions about the income tax and the Federal Reserve Bank, the coming war in Iraq and the Patriot Act. About a thousand of us arrived in Washington, D.C., Nov. 14, 2002, to witness the delivery of our petitions—which contained over 100,000 signatures.

Not one member of Congress or one White House executive honored We the People with a response of any kind. We drove all the way to our nation’s capitol from all over the country and our government rebuked us. So We the People sued. After several years, the D.C. District Court ruled that Congress has made no law...abridging... the petition the Government for a redress of grievances; government was simply under no obligation to respond.

We the People filed an appeal in the D.C. District Court of Appeals last October. That is where it sits—for now.

During this process, Schulz has become the world’s foremost expert on the right to petition. He found out, for instance, that the Founding Fathers understood that citizens must be able to air their grievances and withhold their money (not pay taxes) until their grievances were heard and their grievances were lawfully and respectfully resolved. Schulz also discovered that, up until the 1820s or so, petitions for redress, unless obviously frivolous, were heard—on Wednesdays—by Congress when it was in session.

Schulz, a nautical engineer in his former life, has produced an outstanding, educational and inspiring PowerPoint presentation on the subject. It is available on DVD at and he is always seeking sponsors for him to make the presentation in person.

The journey of discovery Schulz and We the People have been on since the organization was founded in 1998 is arguably the most thoughtful, deliberate, respectful and patient campaign for government reform in the annals of American activism. What We the People have proved is that the individuals who comprise government are actively closing its eyes and ears—and their hearts—to us on issues that are, quite literally, matters of life and death to citizens and their nation.

That means We, the People, are on our own. It is Schulz’ intention to keep organizing events, keep drafting and respectfully filing petitions for redress until our countrymen realize that our grievances will remain unredressed until they can no longer ignore us any more. Bob has decided and We the People Concur, that V will help us to raise our voices.

State of the Constitution Conference

Thursday March 29 thru Saturday March 31, 2007

Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, Virginia

Conference speakers and times are not yet confirmed but the questions to be posed and debated are historic. The questions have been rendered into petitions that ask our elected representatives in government to confirm or deny various points relative to the question headlined on a particular petition. Questions one and two seek to determine whether or not government’s actions are in violation of the general Welfare clause of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution which reads: "The Congress shall have Power to lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States."We the People tried to borrow the costumes thousands of Vs wore for the climactic scene in V for Vendetta. But, the costumes were in England and unavailable to us. But, a supplier has agreed to ship 1,000 to D.C. and will be awaiting animate bodies when they arrive. The costumes will be available for $50 each—about half price. If you can make it on this short notice, you should consider it. Go to for details. We intend to have a full report for the April edition.
