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 U.S. Constitution and protect citizens 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

It will bring an everlasting mark of infamy on the present generation, enlightened as it is, if we should suffer them to be wrested from us by violence without a struggle or to be cheated out of them by the artifices of false and designing men.
