I got this in an email. I'm not entirely sure how, since I'm fairly sure I'm not a subscriber to their newsletter. However, the founder of the We The People Foundation has some strong words for our government.
While I'm not very aware of this foundation, I completely agree with them in their main points. We've lost a great many freedoms in the name of 'security'. I want those freedoms back. Security can never be guaranteed, but freedoms can be.

CONTINENTAL CONGRESS 2009:
Delegates of the People to convene in Philadelphia
to address constitutional crisis
Public Information meeting to be held in
Harrisburg, PA on Sunday, Jan 25
On Sunday, JAN. 25th at 1:00 pm, the We The People Foundation will hold a public meeting to promote local awareness of the People’s historic initiative to address our nation’s escalating constitutional crisis. The meeting will be held at the Harrisburg Comedy Zone at 110 Limekiln Road, New Cumberland, PA 17070 (717 920 5653).
“It is no secret that for decades, the U.S. Government has operated well outside the relatively straight forward language and original intent of the provisions of our Constitution,” said Bob Schulz, Chairman of the WTP Foundation. “Unfortunately, these acts of the Government are deliberate violations of fundamental Law and have resulted in the destruction of the Liberty of the People.”
The People have documented and confronted many of the Government’s constitutional violations including the war powers, privacy, 2nd Amendment and immigration abuses, as well as the banking and money violations that are the root cause of the current financial system meltdown. The People have also recently challenged the legal authority of the apparently bottomless Fed and Treasury economic bailouts. To date, the Government has refused to be held accountable.
“We have reached a point where the People, much like our Founders, must carefully consider the course of current events and take actions to defend our unalienable Rights and interests, or Liberty itself may be irretrievably lost,” Schulz added. “The most disturbing of all the violations is our Government’s refusal to be held accountable in any manner. Not only has the federal Judiciary refused to wrestle with the underlying constitutional wrongs, the Supreme Court has refused to declare the authority of the People to directly procure relief under the First Amendment’s accountability clause. This is the essence of the constitutional crisis that must be addressed, and time is of the essence.”

This is why our founding fathers were very explicit in our constitution about liberty and used very harsh words in The Declaration of Independence.
If the Declaration of Independence were addressed to the United States would it fit?
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness... The history of the present Federal Government of The United States of America is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:
The Government is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny... (remember Blackwater in New Orleans?)
Certainly, some things hold true when held against our government but we're nowhere near the tipping point.
Will the tipping point come before reform starts? I hope not.
Pay attention though because this could be an interesting 4 years.
