We have a Date! Ron Paul will be keynote speaker!

Hello Everyone,

The day is finally upon us! WE HAVE A DATE! We also have confirmation that Ron Paul will be the keynote speaker at our march and rally in Washington D.C. The date will be July 12, 2008, the march will end at the rally point on the West side of Capitol Hill. More details on the march start point and march route will be released soon!

We want to make this a huge event! As of now, we have had over 14,000 people pledge to march and rally with us! We want 100,000 plus to be there and create one loud voice advocating freedom and less government. We thank Dr. Ron Paul for being our keynote speaker and we will publish a list of other great speakers in the coming weeks.

Like many of you, we were looking forward to marching on June 21. Unfortunately, this was not possible due to permitting. We did get permits for the dates of July 12 and August 2, so we decided to reach out to the excited members of the Revolution to find out which date you preferred. The results of the poll on our website had July 12 as the preferred date with 47% of the vote. Once Dr. Paul confirmed his availability for this date, it was a done deal! We know this movement isn’t about dates, it is about freedom, less government, and personal responsibility. So if that was not the best date for you, we hope that you will do your best to arrange your schedule to support the rest of us who are already committed to that date. We hope that this helps continue to spread the word and message of Dr. Paul and the Ron Paul Revolution!

Volunteers are now needed more than ever. Please visit http://www.revolutionmarch.com and volunteer today. We really need help with stage, lighting and sound. Another big area we could us help with is Public Relations, anyone who has a business or expertise in areas of Public Relations please contact us ASAP. There are plenty of other things we need help with to make this a big and successful event so please join us today.

Sincerely,

The RevolutionMarch Team

Understanding the anti-tax case can be difficult. I’m may not be an expert, but let me try a quick introduction to the government, law, and the income tax:

First of all, there are two governments: Federal and State.

There is a United States Constitution that rules over all. But each State also have their own Constitutions.

Both the State and ‘the Fed’ have their own Legislative (congress) and Judicial (courts) branch. Thus the difference between federal law and state law.

Only the Federal government has a president. The executive branch of a state is the governor.

The Constitution of the Federal/State governments give the power to make laws (which are upheld by the Federal/State Judicial branch). (The States must be in compliance with the Federal government.)

So when it comes to the Income tax: the US Constitution gives Congress the power to “lay and collect taxes” on incomes.

16th Amendment: The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.

Keep in mind: this amendment give the power to Congress, but a law must be created to enforce it. Without a law, there can be no legal enforcement.

The Constitution itself is not legislation. It is ‘the law of the land’ – the appropriation of powers to the government, and the protection of the rights of the people. It gives the power to make law. The 16th Amendment itself does not enforce anything.

Most laws are created to say what you cannot do. Some laws also state what you are obligated to do. But when it comes to the Income Tax, the US Congress has never used their power to create a law that requires that you must pay a tax or that you are liable for doing so. (And nor should they!)

And to add to the holes in this illegal enforcement of tax, the IRS tax code itself even says that the federal income tax is a “voluntary” tax – hence, when you pay these taxes you are doing so by consent, not obligation.

Watch the full film, free, online! America: Freedom to Fascism

The States have the power to make their own laws, and most States have their own local income tax. However, if you live in one of the following seven states, you have none: no state nor federal income tax laws.

Which states have no personal income tax?

Seven states have no state income tax: Alaska, Florida, Nevada, South Dakota, Texas, Washington and Wyoming. Two others, New Hampshire and Tennessee, tax only dividend and interest income. To see how other states compare, check out the Federation of Tax Administrators’ listing of individual income tax rates for 2006.

But ultimately, whether you believe that anti-income-tax arguments are not, it is also opposed in principal.

The 16th Amendment should be repealed! This tax effectively gives the government a form of ownership over the citizens of the country.

The many other taxes paid fund all of the aspects of America that the federal government provides (or are at least meant to). The sole purpose of the income tax is to pay the interest on the loans the federal government takes from the ‘Federal Reserve’.

Fact: The Federal Reserve Act and the 16th Amendment were enacted in the same year: 1913.

In other words, it is used to transfer wealth from the people – to the private bankers that control our financial system. And the more the government spends, the more they’ll need to take!

Ron Paul on the Surveillance Bill
Friday, March 14th, 2008 – AntiWar.com

Ron Paul opposes both the Republican and Democratic proposals to renew the telecom surveillance bill. Following is his speech before the US House of Representatives, Friday, March 14, 2008.

I rise in opposition to this latest attempt to undermine our personal liberties and violate the Fourth Amendment of the Constitution. This bill will allow the federal government to engage in the bulk collection of American citizens’ communications. In effect, it means that any American may have his electronic communications monitored without a search warrant.

As such, the bill clearly violates the Fourth Amendment, which states:

“The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

In law, treason is the crime that covers some of the more serious acts of disloyalty to one’s sovereign or nation. A person who commits treason is known as a traitor.

These crimes and the impeachment of officers thereof are granted by the U.S. Constitution.

ARTICLE II: Section 4

The President, Vice President and all civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office of Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors.

ARTICLE III: Section 3

Treason against the United States, shall consist only 1) in levying War against them, or in 2) adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort. No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.

The Congress shall have Power to declare the Punishment of Treason, but no Attainder of Treason shall work Corruption of Blood, or Forfeiture except during the Life of the person attained.

Ex parte Bollman, 8 U.S. 75 (1807), was a case brought before the United States Supreme Court, which ruled that:

“there must be an actual assembling of men, for the treasonable purpose, to constitute a levying of war”.

The Constitutional definition of treason is limited to actual, direct, and concrete involvement in an attempt to forcefully overthrow the government.

That is, treason is essentially a “military” offense. For instance, no amount of anti-government speech can qualify as treason, although giving away military secrets might.

The Supreme court could justifiably condemn them for conspiring with Enemies (of the Constitution). They have also used military force against the States and the People under the guise of their unconstitutional Military Commissions Act of 2006 and other high crimes.

Support and uphold the Constitution… period.

Welcome to the new America!

Will you allow this to happen?

Do not surrender your mind and your reasoning to ignorance, because this is very real.

It will take everyone to work together if we are ever going to prevent tyranny, fascism, and enslavement. If you think dictator Bush will be the end of it – you’re terribly wrong.

History repeats itself – if we let it. People need to communicate and act together. Become part of a community or organization that is acting to conquer the threat that faces every non-elite person in America.

We The People have an obligation, to our ancestors and the Founding Fathers that fought and died for our freedom, we must revolt against tyranny and oppression to preserve our Rights.

And if you don’t, then you might as well accept your national id card and RFID. You will submit your fingerprints, retinal signature and DNA to the federal government and private, secret institutions. You will have chosen to surrender yourself, your family, and everyone you love. Why? Because you were too lazy or afraid to fight to preserve your rights, constitution, and country. This is what’s at stake… don’t want any longer!

We’re watching it happen. It’s only a matter of time. And the longer we wait – the harder this is going to be.

Revolution.

Is it hypocritical to someone to want ‘change’ – yet be unwilling to change his or her choice for president (based on good research)?

How Much Change Is Change?
Newsweek – Jonathan Alter
Mar 10, 2008

When our new president takes the oath next year, we’ll be satisfied with someone who just gets a few things done.

Or will we? The 2008 presidential campaign has featured rising expectations of real change, especially if Obama makes it all the way. It’s not too early to begin to think about what, exactly, this change would mean. How would we define it? How would Obama execute it? Two years from now, will we know if we’ve achieved it?

…Obama tries to prepare his audiences for disappointment. “Change won’t be easy,” he says repeatedly, explaining exactly how special interests have spent many millions buying Congress.

…Then there’s the budget. Obama admits that with baby boomers set to retire, “we should have been storing our nuts for winter” and “we can’t build our future based on a credit card issued by the Bank of China.” But he hasn’t yet conceded that rolling back President Bush’s tax cuts for the wealthy and slowly reducing the $12 billion a month we’re spending in Iraq just won’t generate enough revenue to pay for all of his ambitious domestic agenda. Obama may find that the biggest changes he brings are less legislative than attitudinal, by, say, repairing America’s image in the world and convincing the African-American community that it must do more to solve its own problems.

I admire the people who are voting to change America. Like most Americans, they want to see change in the way the government is managing the country. And according to the mainstream media, Barack Obama seems to be the only candidate who will offer that change.

He was my original choice, for this very same reason. But then I started thinking, and learning, and I realized…

The government shouldn’t be managing the country – that’s not its purpose!

And this is exactly why things have become so bad in the first place. We’re not a socialist country. The government isn’t supposed to run everything. We’re supposed to be a free country! That’s the real problem, isn’t it?

Obama and the other mainstream candidates are running to be elected as the manager of the government, the wars, and the country.

The only candidate who is doing just the opposite… who is fighting to suppress the government’s control over America, protect America, and protect our soverignty – is Ron Paul.

And Ron Paul is the only candidate who has a sound understanding of economics and the principal of freedom.

But instead, America is acting like it’s on the side of the candidates who are represented by big government and industry interests. And the people don’t even know it!

I believe that a great majority of Obama’s supporters would choose differently – if they had the opportunity or took the time to learn why there’s a growing “Ron Paul movement” and why his supporters are so highly committed to his principals.

But America is being left in the dark. The mass media is owned and controlled by people who are against Ron Paul’s opposition to big government & special interests – and everything that has allowed these private and elite groups to gain and maintain their enormous power and control over the government and the economy – such as the Federal Reserve.

Shouldn’t people understand the fact – that all of the problems we’re concerned about are actually the fault of our big government that is being controlled by special interests, powerful people, corporations, and elite groups?

Barack Obama will not change this trend. In fact, his proposals for universal health care, the global poverty act, and other mass-spending will only make the government bigger. Special interests love it!

That’s why Obama has gotten millions of dollars in support from some of America’s biggest corporations. Where else do you think all that money came from?

Big government = more control over the economy and the people.

It’s not the president’s job to manage the economy. It’s not the government’s responsibility to control everything. The president is supposed to protect the people and the country from government control – that was the purpose of the Constitution!

Adding parts to a broken machine will not fix it. What we need is a new one – the original one – the one that made America the amazing country that it is – the Constitution.

I’d say, the difference between Obama and Paul supporters is not what they value, but what they know.

Please ask yourself:

  1. Do you believe the government is out-of-order and that the country is in great need of change?
  2. Do you support the Constitution and its small-government – more power to the people – principals?
  3. Would you be willing to change your mind, no matter how devoted to one candidate you have already become – by doing more research and learning something new?
  4. Would you give the president permission to increase the national debt by funding new, big-government programs and causing inflation by printing more money to fund it?
  5. Do you believe that the mainstream media is un-biased, fair, and balanced?
  6. Are you willing to sacrifice your liberties, as stated in the Bill of Rights, and allow the government to control you?
  7. Will you accept the destruction of national borders to create a North American Union? (This is on the agenda of the Council on Foreign Relations – members of which are the major sponsors of Barack Obama’s campaign.)
  8. Have you fully researched Ron Paul’s stance on the issues, and do you yet fully understand why he is so popular among members of the Armed Services and young people of America?
