The majority of Americans have expressed losing nearly all confidence in all three branches of government. They are frustrated by elected officials who have violated their oath to uphold the Constitution and protect Americans from threats both foreign and domestic.
We the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the Courts– Not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.” — Abraham Lincoln

According to a June 5-6 2016 Gallup poll:
- Only 29 percent “are satisfied with the way things are going in the U.S.”
- Congress has a 9 percent approval rating, having “the ignominious distinction of being the only institution sparking little or no confidence in a majority of Americans.”
- Obama has the lowest approval rating average of any president since Jimmy Carter. Obama’s satisfaction average of 24 percent (over 89 months to date), is “well below the average 37% satisfaction level since Gallup began measuring it in 1979.” (Carter’s average was 19 percent.)
- The U.S. Supreme Court has a 36 percent approval rating.
- Americans’ confidence in the economy is negative 12 percent. Gallup’s weekly Economic Confidence Index averaged -12 (negative 12 percent) for the week ending June 12, for the third consecutive week.
- Thanks to an impotent Congress and inept Obama the national debt, currently at $19.4 trillion, will double over an 8-year period. By Inauguration Day 2016, the national debt is projected to reach $20 trillion, double that of $10.6 trillion on Inauguration Day 2009.
Under Obama, more debt will burden the American public than the debt incurred by all previous 43 presidents cumulatively combined.
- Record unemployment and underemployment reflects an economy that is not primarily wage-based. The labor-force participation rate is 62 percent, which includes people who’ve given up, don’t want to, or can’t work. This means that 40 percent of working age Americans aren’t working, the majority of whom are 16-24-years-old.
America wasn’t always like this. For many generations, people were proud to call themselves American and knew the founding principles upon which their nation was built. Economies and industry were strong, and people took pride in their work and accomplishments. Ordered liberties, freedom, care for neighbors, children, the elderly, sick, and war veterans, were all seen as personal and communal responsibilities– goals towards which Americans were proud to contribute.
Today, the federal government continues to
- Trample on individual rights, targeting some, but not others.
- Fund illegal wars and advocates treasonous spending.
- Institutionalize theft of taxpayers.
- Funds the murder of any human being at any stage in life.
- Ignore the very laws its representatives have sworn to uphold and defend.
Obviously, reform is needed, which may seem impossible, since only one third of Americans vote. But, voting isn’t the only answer to restoring the Republic. Much more is required of its citizens. What will it take to restore the Republic to its original state?
According to Sam Adams, the Father of the American Revolution, four criteria are needed for citizens to consider civil disobedience, armed rebellion, and reject a tyrannical government. In 2015, all four criteria were met.
