Radio talk show host Alex Jones has called for a second American Revolution, led by states who would secede from the federal government and reconstitute the Republic under the terms of the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, and the Constitution.
Americans have been asked to support the movement and to rally behind a restoration of the Republic and the Bill of Rights. This comes from a secessionist movement that has moved across the country with residents from all 50 states submitting petitions to the White House calling for states to withdraw from the Union and form their own independent Governments. The petitions have received a total of over a million signatures.
On Friday November 16th, 2012 during his nationwide broadcast, Alex Jones proposed his plan for secession, emphasizing that states must first secede from the Federal Government and then use the terms of the Declaration of Independence to restore the Republic, and Alex Jones’ intentions are NOT to create a new country.
Alex Jones stressed that he was calling for a “cultural restoration in the spirit of the bill of rights” – a newly unified America under The Constitution of the United States – and NOT asking for or wanting a violent overthrow of the Federal government.
Jones pointed out that the only course to restoring liberty was clear – “To follow the founding document of the Republic, The Declaration of Independence, wherein it is clearly stated that it is the right and the duty of the American people, when their Government becomes destructive and tyrannical, to abolish and reconstitute it in a form that protects our liberties.”
“We are NOT calling for secession to form new separate countries, we are calling for secession because the states created the Constitution, The Bill of Rights and the Federal Government. The Federal Government itself has been hijacked by mainly banking cartels,” Jones says.
This is NOT a plot to bring down America, but rather to restore it by truth and justice and our God-given rights as citizens of the United States. Unfortunately, the media feeds society with drama, and no one is unfamiliar with its habit of twisting things to create further drama. This helps to keep people on the edge of their seats out of fear of what will happen next. “I am calling for people to be educated about how we can secede to restore the Republic,” said Jones, warning that the media was attempting to characterize the movement as a plot to bring down America (when in fact America has already been taken over by the majority of the political and financial elite.)
“This is the states putting their foot down and saying we are going to reconstitute the Federal Government under the Bill of Rights and the Constitution; we’re going to kick out the bureaucrats, the lobbyists, the foreign criminals, and the Federal Reserve who have taken over,” explained Jones.
Alex Jones also asked Congressman Ron Paul to start the movement and utilize his network of liberty-loving activists to lead the charge, as well as using his contacts in each state to begin the process of secession in the legislature.
Harvard law scholar and adviser to Ron Paul Edwin Viera appeared on the syndicated radio broadcast and agreed with Alex Jones’ plan, with the Declaration of independence as the centerpiece of legal authority.
Ron Paul’s former chief of staff, Lew Rockwell, also appeared on the broadcast and agrees with Jones’ strategy that now is the time to restore the republic.
The right of the people to reconstitute their government if it becomes oppressive and onerous is clearly outlined in the Declaration of Independence:
That 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 to abolish it and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
The secessionist movement has now been portrayed as anti-American, unpatriotic, and even treasonous. Ron Paul emphasized greatly that “it is as American as apple pie and George Washington.”
Infowars is calling on those who love, support, and defend our country to start a movement to draft Ron Paul as the head of this effort to restore the Republic, restore the bill of rights, and opt out of the fake America that the banking elite has fashioned so that it can serve its own interests instead of the interests of the people.
Some of the media is already demonizing the secessionist movement as a group of crazy people and paranoid racists when in reality it is comprised of present and former Marines, parents, business owners, and ordinary mechanics.
Meanwhile, some Obama supporters have asked the Government to punish those putting their signatures to the secession petitions by having them stripped of their citizenship, deported, and exiled.
Pastor & Journalist An Angels Faith concludes:
Where is God in stripping people of their Citizenship when they are only exercising the very rights granted to them? Would you sit your child down in front of a bowl of ice cream, tell them its theres to eat then punish them for eating it? May we all begin to put our Creator back where he belongs. In our words, our thoughts, our actions and our actions and words in our world.
Philippians 4:8 says:
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
And by the words my friend Preston Johnson so kindly reminds us of…
Watch your thoughts; they become words.
Watch your words; they become actions.
Watch your actions; they become habits.
Watch your habits; they become character.
Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
The time is now for us to stand up for the Declaration of Independence and exercise our God-given rights to pursue life, justice, and happiness. If we all focus our thoughts on what is good, true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, excellent, and praiseworthy in this world and in each other, then we will begin to see a change that follows for eternity on the edge of the coin where sides no longer exist.
