Suggested Priority Actions for State Officials


This paper is an attachment to the letter inviting state officials to join RELIVING 1776’s Legislative Initiative Team. (see  As shown in the basic letter, state officials have the fiduciary responsibility and the authority to Take America Back (TAB) to its lawfully constituted form of government.

To initiate the process, state officials wanting to help TAB must accept the validity of the thirty Republican governors 11/22/1994 allegation saying: "Federal action has exceeded the clear bounds of its jurisdiction under the Constitution, and thus violated rights guaranteed to the people…"  and adopt the governors pledge “to restore to the states and the people the prerogatives and freedoms guaranteed them by the Constitution” as their goal.

The next - and very important step for those accepting the challenge of  helping TAB - is to adopt a set of core beliefs similar to the following as the foundation for their future action.

The Declaration of Independence is our Nation's birth certificate and our Constitution’s cornerstone. For lawful government to exist, it must comply with the principles and policies set forth in these documents and the Bill of Rights when interpreted in the spirit and intent of America’s founders. 


Through the Constitution, the States created the federal government as their AGENT. As principals to the Constitution and under the Law of Agency, our States possess the ultimate authority and responsibility for the  proper interpretation and implementation of the Constitution.  


In consideration of the power granted the Federal government each State is guaranteed a Republican form of government and is to be protected from invasion by Art. IV, Sec. 4 of the Constitution. 


Treaties, a purview of the President with the advice and consent of the Senate, cannot lawfully create law as Art. 1 Sec.1 of our Constitution vested all legislative powers in the Congress. Since the House of Representatives has no authority over Treaties, any attempt to use them to create law is an unlawful act.  


The Constitution's 10th Amendment stating "the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution .... are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people" provides incontestable evidence that the only lawful powers of the Federal Government are those specifically enumerated in the Constitution. 


No elected or appointed official has - nor has had - any lawful authority to alter the intent of our Nation’s founding fathers as set forth in our Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights. To be lawful, every Executive Order, Supreme Court decision, Constitutional Amendment, Signing Statement, Presidential Decision Directive, Proclamation, or other writing must be in the interest of advancing the cause of life, liberty, and the happiness of the American people.  


The U. S. Supreme Court was correct in saying:

      a. "This Court has regularly and uniformly recognized the supremacy of the Constitution over a treaty" and “ it would be manifestly contrary to the objectives of those who created the Constitution, let alone alien to our Constitutional history and tradition to construe Article 6 as permitting the United States to exercise power under an international agreement without observing Constitutional prohibitions.” (Reid vs Covert)  

      b. "a law repugnant to the Constitution is void." (Marbury vs Madison)  

      c. "Where rights secured by the Constitution are involved, there can be no rule making or legislation which would abrogate them." (Miranda vs Arizona)   

      d. “whatever the outer limits of the (states) Sovereignty may be, one thing is clear; the Federal Government may not compel the States to enact or administer a Federal regulatory program….Where Congress exceeds its authority relative to the States, departure from the constitutional plan cannot be ratified by ‘consent’ of State officials.” New York vs. United States112 S. Ct 2408 (1992) 

After accepting the above as truths and a foundation for action, the following are offered as priority issues for state action. Though these are but a few of the hundreds of issues that need attention, they are among the most urgent as they will add to the foundation needed to TAB. And while working within the framework of the Constitution in an attempt to TAB, state officials should not overlook the option of terminating the existing Federal government and starting over. The right of any and all states to secede from the union was well established by several states during our Constitution’s ratification process. Virginia’s language read: “The people of Virginia, declare and make known, that the powers granted under the Constitution…may be resumed by them whensoever the same shall be perverted  to their injury or oppression.”

  * States must assure the integrity of the ballot box. Computerized voting must be abandoned and an audit trail established.

  * The “Federal actions” alluded to in the Republican governors allegation must be formally and accurately identified and publicized and those responsible for the actions brought to justice under existing laws.

  * Major news outlets should be required to provide time for presenting all sides of issues to assure voters are well informed of important truths affecting their lives.

  * Our states must reclaim their right to control education and be sure our nation’s founding documents and America’s true history are accurately taught.

  * The invasion of America by immigrants from other nations must  be stopped.

  * America’s sovereignty must be re-established. Formation of the North American Union be stopped, several treaties nullified, and U.S. membership in the United Nations terminated for on 2-1-92, President George Herbert Walker Bush essentially announced the New World Order (NWO) as a reality in saying: “it is the sacred principles enshrined in the United Nations Charter to which we will henceforth  pledge our allegiance.“  Also, in Senate testimony on May 11, 1955, former American Bar President Carl Rix said: “Congress is no longer bound by its Constitutional system of delegated power…Congress may now legislate as an uninhibited body with no shackles of delegated powers under the Constitution. Our entire system of government of delegated powers of Congress has been changed to a system of undelegated power without amendment {of the Constitution} by the people of the United States.”

  * Lawful money is a must!  Per the Dept. of Treasury, “the actual creation of money always involves the extension of credit by private commercial banks.” i.e., our ’money’ isn’t money which by definition must be a “storehouse of value” but a representation of debt! When asked where the ‘money’ to pay the interest on the borrowed ‘money’ comes from, the Dept. of Treasury replied: “money to pay the interest on borrowed money comes from the same source other money comes from.” i.e., it too must be borrowed into existence. This unconstitutional and unbiblical system of ‘money’ (debt) creation has resulted in Americans now owing public and private debts of over $50 trillion with another $45 trillion in unfunded obligations. The total money supply with which to pay these debts is about $6.1 trillion.

This unconstitutional system of ‘money’ (debt) creation is responsible for the economic woes of our states, families, businesses, and nation. When the world’s central bankers and other nations stop lending to America, social security, medicare, retirement programs, etc will cease and chaos will result. America’s National security demands a National Economic Recovery Program be planned and implemented!  States should act to educate their citizens of this problem and demand the Federal government provide lawful money. In the interim, state legislatures should provide their citizens with a medium of exchange based upon the monetization of wealth rather than of debt. A draft proposed bill for doing can be found by going to and then to search house bill and then enter HF 619.   

  * On October 17, 2006, President Bush signed two tyrannical acts; the 'Military Commissions Act of 2006' which suspended habeas corpus allowing the president to declare any American an 'enemy combatant’ and end their rights to seek legal or judicial relief from unlawful imprisonment. The second such act was his signing into law the 'John Warner National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) of 2007.'  This law essentially eliminates the protections of the Posse Comitatus Act and re-wrote the Insurrection Act. The NDAA permits the president to declare a 'public emergency' and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities in order to 'suppress public disorder'! These laws must be rescinded. In the interim, states should exercise the doctrines of “interposition” and “nullification”  whereby states have rejected Federal legislation with which they disagree.  (see South Carolinas 1832 Ordinance of Nullification).
