Reclaim the Constitution from Scofflaw Government

From Richard Viguerie & Mark Fitzgibbons:

Dear fellow conservative,

We wanted you to be one of the first to receive a copy of something we believe could change the 2012 election -- and many elections after that. It's about reclaiming the Constitution from scofflaw government.

The political establishment is now openly contemptuous in its disregard for the Constitution. Elected officials, judges and bureaucrats have corrupted the law that is supposed to protect society and our freedoms. Many private lawyers commit the moral equivalent of legal malpractice by aiding lawbreaking by the political establishment.

In some political campaigns we now hear talk about American exceptionalism and constitutional conservatism, but too few candidates explain the link between these important ideals. The left wants to destroy American exceptionalism, and attacks constitutional conservatism. We need candidates who understand and can articulate what constitutional conservatism is all about.

We've written what we think is a comprehensive and defining pamphlet of principles, purpose and proposals for constitutional conservatives. It articulates some key ways to reclaim the Constitution from scofflaw government, and to preserve American exceptionalism.

The pamphlet starts this way: "Government is the oldest, largest and most pervasive lawbreaker in America."

We take on the entire political establishment in our no-holds pamphlet describing how government is now society's biggest lawbreaker; so big that nothing is a close second.

Based on decades of experience fighting government lawbreaking in the name of free market conservative principles, we set forth some new ways of thinking, and perhaps confirm what others already know, about why America's exceptionalism is in decline, and how the constitutional conservative movement is the last, best chance to save our country.

We put these ideas in the context of what constitutional conservatives know to be true. Our pamphlet links great thoughts and ideals from the 18th Century English giant, Sir William Blackstone, through James Madison and Thomas Jefferson, to the modern conservative movement that began in the 1950s, and now to the Tea Party. We have set forth these ideals in a way that applies right now.

It's called "The Law That Governs Government: Reclaiming the Constitution from Usurpers and Society's Biggest Lawbreaker."

Here is a link to an excerpt from the introduction, which we call "The People's Opening Argument."

The entire pamphlet itself, which is available at ReclaimtheConstitution.com, includes one appendix with 30 questions people may ask candidates for federal and state office to test their knowledge of, and fidelity to, the Constitution and constitutional conservative principles. We provide another appendix with over 200 items showing government lawbreaking, but that doesn't even scratch the surface of our scofflaw government.

Our pamphlet describes how the political establishment shows contempt for the Constitution, how it rigs the rules to protect and hide its lawbreaking, and why reclaiming the Constitution as the law that governs government may be the most important goal for conservatives if we are to govern effectively.

Above all else, our pamphlet is about what James Madison described as the remedy obtained from the people for the violations of law, the theft of our rights, and usurpation of constitutional authority.

Our principal goal in writing this pamphlet is to help launch an effort to push the Constitution into the center of the 2012 election.

We're planning a major marketing, PR, and advertising campaign to make the failure of most of our political leaders to follow the Constitution an important issue in the 2012 primaries and general election.

To begin this effort, we're writing to people of influence such as yourself, urging them to do what they can to inform and educate others.

To encourage you and others to get this message out, we're not copyrighting our pamphlet. We want to encourage you to make whatever use of it you wish with or without attribution.

Saving America is what's important -- not who gets credit for this or that. The selflessness and the sacrifices of our Founders should be an inspiration and encouragement for all of us.

This Constitution Day, it's time to do more that curse the problem. It's time to reclaim the Constitution.

Please join us in this endeavor to save America from lawbreaking government.
