ST. CHARLES, IL - The first time free people assembled as a Congress of the People for such a critical point in the nation's history was in 1774 in Philadelphia. Over 230 years later116 Delegates from 48 stateshave convened a modern day Continental Congress to exercise popular sovereignty and restore self-governance to the people of America.
The Citizen nominated and elected Delegates, all passionate about holding our servant government accountable to this nation's founding documents, have been meeting together day and night since Wednesday November 11th, generating a written and digital record for the history books. Despite the devastation across the US and the world as a result of our government's pervasive and unconstitutional acts, the Delegates have been quick to assert that the People have only themselves to blame for allowing these continued and escalating Constitutional violations.
Thus the Delegates seek to "draw a line in the sand" and convene this Continental Congress to end the nation's distress and restore the Republic form of self-governance that made America the most innovative and prosperous nation on earth.
The format for the Congress includes two sessions per day with guest speakers and documentary films to illustrate for all audiences how unlawful billion dollar bailouts, federal spending via limitless debt that enslaves our children, trillions spent on unconstitutional wars in places most Americans can't find on a map or tell you why we are there, the Bill of Rights -- intended to protect our God-given individual rights as a free people -- is now ignored on a daily basis, and has eradicated our Republic.
In addition, the Delegates have established Committees for each major area of violation, charged with drafting Remedial Instructions to be formally served upon both the Federal Government and each State's legislature. Delegates are quick to point out that these Instructions will be accompanied by a pro-active, peaceful mass movement of Civic Actions that all Americans can readily implement in order to ensure complicity from this and future servant government officials.
The Committees have been meeting and debating during breaks and late into the evening hours each night. For approximately four hours per day, the Delegates convene formally via the live webcast in a public forum to deliberate and vote, one vote per state, and adopt proposed Instructions and Civic Actions brought forth by the Committees. Participants and supporters cite that any individual right that is not enforceable is no right at all.
The non-partisan, non-political event has been organized by the We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education (http://www.cc2009.us/about-wtp/we-the-people-articles-and-bylaws) and is the next appropriate step an ongoing 14-year process to hold state and federal elected officials directly accountable to the federal Constitution by enforcing the Petition Clause of the First Amendment.

Such a revolutionary event will be sure to be blacked out by the dominant mainstream media. CC2009 is only $150,000 away from the operational expenses to ensure the meeting space contracts, guest speakers, hosting, producing and professionally broadcasting all 12 days' proceedings. Any funds raised beyond this will go towards targeted advertising on liberty focused websites like the one sending you this message today. Each day's subject matter by Constitutional Violation topic will be archived with supporting documentation.
Not only will CC2009 document for the world for the first time the Constitutional violations and the devastation to America's freedoms and liberty, but the Delegates at CC2009 will be providing America a blueprint for civic-action that everyone can use to Restore our lost Republic.
Beyond Elections. Beyond Tea Parties. It's Time to Exercise Your Fundamental Right to Popular Sovereignty
Billion dollar bailouts, federal spending into debt that enslaves our children, trillions spent on wars in places most Americans can't find on a map or tell you why we are there, the Bill of Rights -- intended to protect our God-given individual rights as a free people -- now ignored on a daily basis, have eroded our Republic. [Please forward this to your friends and family memberswho you know also understand how the days of a Free America are numbered.]
