Dear Colleagues and Friends of America:

Bred as non-conformists and activists, We The People Foundation for Constitutional Education, We The People Congress and their predecessor organizations have made our civic actions subservient only to the Cause of Truth.

It is fair to say that as an organization we have no like or equal. Our civic actions are uniquely grounded on the sovereigns’ profound and unalienable Right, recognized by the last ten words of the First Amendment, to peaceably hold the Government accountable to the Constitution.

Of great consequence, accountability in government depends on the People, who must exercise and enforce the Right when necessary, for neither Freedom nor the Constitution are capable of defending themselves.

Unfortunately, there is no instant gratification, only steady progress – the fruits of an unwavering commitment measured over years - towards the ultimate prize of a clear demonstration of the People’s ability to hold the government accountable, peaceably, by careful and exact observance of duty, and performance of obligations, under the Rule of Law.

Our process-oriented approach, guided by the First Amendment Right to Petition, has been patient, intelligent, rational and always rooted in the Constitution.  Finally, we have provoked a response from the Government, which we believe will be addressed in the coming months lest the People lose the power to hold elected officials accountable to constitutional governance.

Unwilling to respond to the Petitions for Redress, the Government has now outlawed the Right to Petition! See our Dec 5, 2010 Update titled, Part 2, Options Anyon

We, who have been gathered together under the auspices of this organization in the shared cause of constitutional governance, need to remain steadfast and unshaken in these times when the attention of others seems always to be diverted from the real matters at hand by irrelevant issues, ineffective labors or divisive stratagems raised, however well meaning, as distractions from our primary mission.

Due to commotion from a multiplicity of objects crowding on the mind and drawing the attention different ways, including economic choices, we must unfortunately report that the level of WTP’s financial support has fallen precipitously. We are finding it most difficult to meet our monthly business expenses and pay our debts due and owing.

This lack of funding has affected our ability to maintain our business operation and valuable information and technology assets. It is also threatening to slow the advance of our plans, our work and our ability to communicate our messages at a time when we need to accelerate – whether in the Judiciary, the avenues of public opinion or across the vast reach of the Internet. 

In this past decade, we have modelled the exercise of Petitioning the Government for Redress of violations of the Constitution, as well as educated the American public about their duty. We have established a legal and historical “record” the People can now stand firmly upon as we move forward to reclaim and restore this First Amendment Right, and then act as a Free People to peaceably maintain, en masse, constitutional governance in America.  The period at the end of the Liberty sentence will be a clear demonstration of the People’s Right to hold their government accountable by Petition.  

Please stay with us in our efforts.  The finish line is in sight. For the first time, it appears that enough of the People may be awake to the problem, and even some in office are showing signs of wanting to steer us back towards the Constitution.  With adequate funding we can fulfil the Purpose which so many of you have supported. It is time now to bring home the bacon. 

In supplication, we call upon all friends of freedom to donate what they can. In these times of uncertainty and distress we know there are many calls for assistance, from within both your families and the Freedom movement generally. We trust our long record of personal commitment, results, sacrifice and integrity speaks for itself and warrants a measure of your support.   

The 990 Forms for 2009, required by the IRS, to whom we have always been compliant, are available for viewing here. The 990s for 2010 will be prepared by our accountant in the coming weeks and will join the others once they are filed.

Suffice it to say that for 2010, the Foundation received approximately $74,000 in donations and expended approximately $95,000, which included all funds carried forward from 2009. The Congress received approximately $31,000 and expended approximately $35,000, including all funds carried forward from 2009. We were thoroughly audited by the IRS in 2006-7. There was no discrepancy in our procedures or processes. Not one! The issues we face with the IRS in terms of the revocation of our tax exempt status are entirely based on our attempts to hold their own operation and enforcement procedures accountable to the Constitution. Our Appeal will be heard in Tax Court at a time to be determined by them.

If anyone feels so inclined, we would be so grateful for your individual commitment to cover for all or part of 2011, one or more of the following monthly, recurring expenses:            

Web site and Internet Technology services………………………... $ 2,500.00

The First Amendment Right to Petition for Redress is nothing less than a force of Nature, bequeathed to us by our Creator to restore order in matters of Earthly governance and insure the perpetuity of the bounty of Liberty. This force cannot, and will not, be long denied to the People. Our claim and exercise of this profound Right, coupled with our single mindedness of purpose will see us through, provided we are not abandoned, “which sequence, I conceive, is very ill collected.” (John Locke).

We remain very grateful for the opportunity to be in service to the Constitution and to join the body of servants to America, past and present.

Stay well and stay vigilant,

P.S.  As a boy of eight, I became familiar with Rudyard Kipling through The Jungle Book. Here is one of his poems, which I have found useful in pondering my life.


Rudyard Kipling

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;

If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:

If you can dream - and not make dreams your master;
If you can think - and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;

If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn
out tools:

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;

If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: 'Hold on!'

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;

If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!

Please join us and support our work during the coming year.
