This update regards the
upcoming historic Continental Congress 2009 event
to be held in Philadelphia directly across from
Independence Hall. As part of CC 2009,
delegates selected by the People from each of the
fifty states will convene to discuss the
Government’s ongoing violations of the
Constitution and strategies the People can employ
to peaceably curtail the abuse. Although these
violations have been widely debated for years, it
is the Government’s patent refusal to respond to
any and all First Amendment Petitions for Redress
that now compel the People to justly and actively
resist the tyranny.
We strongly encourage our readers to review
each of our
At a minimum, please be sure to read our “Summit
in the Sand” web
which provide a good overview of the
constitutional crisis and CC 2009
With each passing day, soul after soul across the nation is
slowly finding its way to WTP and experiencing the
energy and sheer excitement of discovering an
innovative, viable solution that might actually
restore Constitutional Order to our Republic.
That profound solution is the “Continental Congress 2009”.
Modeled directly upon the efforts of our
Founders, CC 2009 promises to bring representatives
from each of the fifty states to the birthplace of
our nation – Philadelphia, to once again debate the
challenges the People face in keeping the
Constitution alive and to develop strategies they
can implement to thwart those in government that
would deny them their Liberty.
One such soul, Katie, found her personal hope this past week at the
WTP meeting in Denver. The following is a copy of an
entry she penned on an Internet blog a couple days

Recently I attended a meeting of the We The People
Foundation and I can describe it in two words: LIFE
I urge all of you to look at the schedule on this
link. If you are anywhere within 200 miles of one of
them, or know someone who is, YOU should go and
listen and learn. Don't question it. Just find a way
to get there. And bring people with you.
I walked in not knowing anyone else or if I should
be in this place. I walked out with a glimmer of
light at the end of a very long tunnel that we have
the ABILITY and the RIGHT and the birth of a PLAN of
ACTION to take back our constitutional republic that
has been violated so many times.
I believe I learned more about history in those 3
hours than 4 years of high school. Folks it's 1774
all over again. The bad news is things are worse now
than they were before the Revolutionary War. The
good news is we don't have to create a Constitution
or Declaration of Independence. We already have the
perfect documents and laws in place. They're just
not being followed.
The beauty of this mission is IT ISN'T ABOUT
POLITICAL PARTIES! It IS about Americans who love
their country, are fed up with well-documented
corruption in government, and are forming the plan
to defend the Constitution, and dare I say it,m"get
the Government back on the side of the People" (wow!
where did we hear that?)
I'm personally tired of sitting at my desk,
complaining about things, living in fear or
depression, and am grateful to the We The People
Foundation.org for helping me find an outlet for
being proactive. You can, and should, too.
My parents are elderly, but they were very active
politically in the early 60's. There are a lot of
parallels with these times we're in, but they agree,
this is much, much more dire. I just spent two hours
on the phone with them, and they heard a different
daughter. They are encouraged now. It's not too
late, but there isn't much time left, and if the
Constitution continues to be violated in the
direction we're going, it won't matter. Our lives as
we know them are over.
I see the Internet as a huge tool to help us win
this. The more we can focus our efforts in one
place, with laser-like intensity, the sooner we can
clean up this mess.
This group is forming a Continental Congress - three
citizen delegates from each state are being sought
to go to Philadelphia in March for creating an
action plan. (This is exactly what happened in 1774
- worked out pretty good, wouldn't you say?) Bob
Schulz spoke for almost 3 hours, giving a
background, history and quotes from our Founding
Fathers. YOU COULD HAVE HEARD A PIN DROP. To say
we're in similar circumstances is an
Lots of people are sacrificing all they can for this
organization’s efforts. They're not about profiting
from this disaster. They're about fixing it. You can
get educated by going to their website at
WeThePeopleCongress.org Click on the article posted
on 12/20 "Summit Call" and work your way to more
recent postings. Mr. Schulz explained that this
would be the most logical way to understand what
Yes, they need money. But they also need our time.
And effort. Whatever special gifts, talents, or
skills we can bring will be needed. Our government
officials have become power hungry and it needs to
"CONGRESS SHALL MAKE NO LAW RESPECTING THE
ESTABLISHMENT OF RELIGION, OR PROHIBITING THE FREE
EXERCISE THEREOF; OR ABRIDGING THE FREEDOM OF
SPEECH, OR OF THE PRESS; OR THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE
PEACEABLY TO ASSEMBLE, AND TO PETITION THE
GOVERNMENT FOR A REDRESS OF GRIEVANCES." 1791
