  Some new material from PCCOH 08/23/2012


Greetings to All,

We would like to inform you of an introductory video for the OSA. We have worked hard to create a relaxed and easy message to let people know what we are all about. We would love to have you spread this message to help get the word out about the Sovereignty Movement.

We have also recently run across a video of a candidate for sheriff, in Hillsboro County, NH. His message is in perfect harmony with the Ohio Sovereignty Amendment for the office of sheriff. Please go to this video http://libertycrier.com/politics/nh-television-host-frank-szabo-is-one-of-the-most-intriguing-candidates-ive-ever-interviewed/ and enjoy watching it for about a half hour and then view our flyer for the Office of Sheriff on our website. http://osanow.com/library/PreservationOfTheOfficeOfSheriff.v01012011.pdf .

OUR NEXT WEBINAR, OCTOBER 25TH, 9 P.M. EDT OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT by PCCOH 

 

 
PCCOH = Peoples Constitution Coalition of Ohio
 

 REGISTER NOW! FORWARD TO FRIENDS! 

 

 Join us on October 25th for: LIA Presents - Ohio Sovereignty Amendment, Introducing PCCOH
People have come to recognize that America isn't the land of hope and opportunity it once was.  Our public servants give little respect to our Constitutions, and the moral health of our society is rapidly decaying.  Quite frankly, government is completely out of control, and the bulk of the people could care less, so long as they get their monthly benefit checks and government doesn't come a knocking on their door.

 

We at PCCOH have no hidden agenda - only the desire to restore the honor and integrity that made America great - individual rights and liberty, justice, opportunity, and prosperity by the sweat of our own brow.  Not only do we understand the problem, but we have formulated a solution and devised a plan to not only restore constitutional government in America, but to keep it.

 

The plan is quite simple, but it is a monumental task.  The solution relies on harnessing our states' rights to protect the people from the abuses of government.  It is the people's government, and it is our duty and responsibility to maintain it.  Our solution, which has been introduced as the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT, is designed specifically to: (1) mandate, by law, government compliance with the constitutions; (2) provide penalties, by law, for public servants who violate the constitutions; and (3) mandate that the states protect the people from all unconstitutional encroachments.

 

In our presentation, you will learn:
1.       How we got to where we are today;
2.       The truth about our American system of               government 
3.       A 6-part plan to restore our founding principles;
4.       How to maintain control over government; and
5.       The easy steps you can take to help.

  PCCOH Endorsement - The Coalition of Freedom 08/13/2011

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH) wishes to extend to the Coalition of Freedom (COF) and its affiliate members our sincere gratitude and support for your efforts to defend states’ rights and restore constitutionally-compliant government in America. We recognize that this is an enormous task, but we also stand with you, in honor, and accept that task in fulfillment of our duty to defend freedom and our American system of free society.

 
Because of the very nature of our own efforts to promote state sovereignty, we must maintain a strict separation of our organization from any direct relationship to the federal government that could compromise our integrity and jeopardize our cause. For this reason, we cannot participate in any federal corporate structure, such as that which the COF has chosen for its organization. But, we yet remain greatly supportive of your efforts as we move forward, together, to take back America. And though we are not directly represented in your leadership structure, we feel our interests are well represented by those of you who have been very supportive of PCCOH and our cause to hold government in compliance with and accountable to our state and federal Constitutions.
 
 As we move forward, we all must recognize that we cannot protect freedom from an out-of-control government. Therefore, it is imperative that we regain control over government, first, before we advance our efforts to resolve the numerous issues facing our Union. Put government back into its box, and then we can get America back on its proper course of protecting our rights and liberties and promoting a society for our happiness and prosperity.
 
This battle will not be won over night. But, we cannot afford to fail. We must do what it takes to ensure our success, peacefully. We believe that a great first step to winning is ratification of the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT. This amendment is designed specifically to restore control over government, and it is the only project of its kind. To succeed, we need your help. We must win the support of the community. We must make the issues of states’ rights and limited government the premiere issues in Ohio. We must ensure that Ohioans will be insulated from the bad behavior of the federal government. And, as more states recognize the important significance of what we are doing, we will eventually win sufficient support to restrain the federal government from all usurping activities.
 
 
In Liberty,
 
Michael Alan Young – Founding Member, On behalf of the Committee, PCCOH

Harnessing the power of the  PEOPLE to control government

- THE PEOPLE CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO

 

August 12, 2011
 
RE:  PCCOH Newsletter
 
STEPPING IT UP
 
PCCOH is stepping up our efforts to get the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT on the
ballot for November 2012.  That gives us about 10 months to collect 500,000
signatures.  Though some of you have shown support and collected signatures, we
are far from reaching our goal.
 
To help meet this objective, we are going to reorganize our state-wide
leadership network.  Over the next few weeks, we will be calling on volunteers
in each county to form leadership groups of 3 to 5 people who are willing to
take charge and the responsibility to qualify their county in the signature
count.  Of course, these leadership teams will require the help of many local
people to fulfill their mandates.  We hope that by building these teams, the
efforts can be distributed so as not to be too overwhelming for each.
 
But, don’t wait on us to call.  If you are willing to help, then contact us.
 
We know that there are many issues detracting from this project.  But, it must
be done, none the less.  We must regain control over government, and the OHIO
SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT is the only project designed to do that.
 
EMAIL OVER-LOAD
 
PCCOH understands that most of you are inundated with emails, and as a result,
few of you actually read them.  However, this is the primary form of
communication we have with you.  There are far too many people to communicate
with individually, so we use emails to keep you informed and make announcements.
 
To help you identify important PCCOH email, we will precede each email with
“PCCOH -“ to help you easily identify our messages.  We will also restrict our
issuing any messages of a general nature that have little to do with our
progress and operations.  So, please review all your PCCOH emails and respond,
accordingly.
 
WHY THE OSA IS SO IMPORTANT
 
I think we can easily agree that government is out of control – it blatantly
violates our Constitutions and refuses to be held accountable.  You must
understand that, until we regain control over government, we will not be able to
protect our freedom.  We must force government into compliance with our state
and federal Constitutions, and we must have the ability to hold our public
officeholders accountable when they violate the Constitutions.  The OHIO
SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT (OSA) is the only project specifically designed to do
that.
 
Some say the OSA is too long or too complex.  Well, compare it to the national
health care bill or any other bill, and you will realize that it is very
succinct, and yet powerful.  At no time in our history have the people had an
effective and efficient legal means to maintain control over government, even
though it has always been our duty to do so.  The OSA will provide us much more
power to do so.  It should be obvious to people that government has its own
agenda, and that agenda violates the Constitutions and infringes upon our
individual rights and liberties.
 
This is a cause that affects all of us, independent of our political
affiliations.  It is a cause to put “Principle” above profit, power, or
politics.  It is a cause to restore individual happiness and prosperity to the
people.  It is a cause to restore our dignity and integrity as a society.  It is
a cause to promote morality and honor, to restore our Christian heritage, and
regain our self-respect and sufficiency.  It is a cause to secure the
fundamental principles that makes America  great.  It is a cause that every
freedom-loving person should support and endeavor to protect.  It is a cause
that, should we fail to preserve, will result in our ultimate demise.  WE ARE
NOT INVULNERABLE TO THE SAME ATTROCITIES THAT HAVE RESULTED IN THE DESTRUCTION
OF OTHER NATIONS.  This has escalated to beyond a mere matter of right and duty,
it has escalated to a matter of survival.  If you fail to recognize this, then
you fail to recognize the severity of our current condition.  Wake up – the time
to protect freedom is upon us.  Please, let’s do it together while our options
remain peaceful.
 
YOUR INTERESTS
 
PCCOH, due to our part-time and voluntary nature, has been limited in our
ability to bring you all the news of the day.  Tell us what you are interested
in so that we may provide that information.  As we continue to grow and acquire
sufficient resources, we expect our services will expand, accordingly.
 
Also, send us your ideas.  If you think you can offer something to ensure our
success, then please share it.
 
Thank you,
 
Michael – Founding Member, PCCOH

  Special Announcement - PCCOH - Sovereignty Platform 06/21/2011

June 21, 2011

Special Announcement!

Sovereignty Platform and Advocacy Network

 

We at PCCOH are taking our effort to the next level and we need your help. Please review the Platform, let us know your thoughts. Only together, can we achieve success.


In order to address the multitude of problems facing America we have drafted an action plan that is national in scope. It is bold, it is uncompromising, and it is absolutely necessary if we are to save America from collapse.  We ask all Americans, from all walks of life to join us in this historic effort.  Please visit the site and review our proposal.  The Sovereignty Platform and Advocacy Network is available now for your consideration. 

Let your voice be heard!  We welcome your feedback and strongly encourage everyone to review our proposal, let us know what you think.

Please send your replies to core associate, Jim Flaugher.


The Sovereignty Platform is a multi-faceted approach directed at the city, county, state, and federal levels to return America back to prominence. The platform addresses seven main areas.

  • Restore the Constitutional integrity of American Government
  • Bring Constitutional accountability to all public officeholders
  • Implementing State Sovereignty Initiatives to re-empower the States
  • Personal Sovereignty Initiatives to re-empower the people
  • A mutually beneficial trade policy to regain independence from foreign countries.
  • The creation of a Monetary Branch within the Federal Government to reign in spending, taxation, and economic blunders which operates on sound monetary principles that promote economic stability and individual prosperity.
  • Many sensible, logical, and practical government reforms.

 

Spread the message far and wide - America is waiting!

 

"GOD … COUNTRY … DUTY … HONOR.  WHAT HAPPENED TO THE PRINCIPLES THAT MADE AMERICA GREAT, THE ENVY OF THE WORLD?

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE CREATED A SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT UNIQUE TO THE WORLD, A SYSTEM THAT PLACES THE PEOPLE ABOVE GOVERNMENT.  IN OUR SYSTEM OF CIVIL SOCIETY, THE SOVEREIGNTY BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE, AND GOVERNMENT IS INSTITUTED TO SERVE THEM.  OBSERVATION OF OUR CURRENT SITUATION REVEALS THAT GOVERNMENT HAS USURPED POWER OVER THE PEOPLE, AND THE PEOPLE HAVE FORGOTTEN WHO THEY ARE.

IT IS TIME TO PLACE “PRINCIPLE” ABOVE “PROFIT” OR “POWER”, AND ESPECIALLY ABOVE “POLITICS”.  THE MATTER OF SOVEREIGNTY IS NOT PARTY SPECIFIC.  IT INVOLVES ALL AMERICANS, INDEPENDENT OF THEIR POLITICAL AFFILIATION.  THE STATES POSSESS A RESERVED SOVEREIGNTY TO GOVERN ALL DOMESTIC MATTERS PERTAINING TO ITS RESPECTIVE CITIZENRY, WHERE IT IS CLOSE TO THE PEOPLE.  THIS ATTRIBUTE IS ONE OF THE PROTECTIONS DESIGNED TO PROTECT THE PEOPLE’S LIBERTIES AND ENSURE DOMESTIC TRANQUILITY."  Michael Young founder of PCCOH

Join us Saturday, June 4, in Dothan, Alabama for America's first statewide conference on state sovereignty: "State Sovereignty and the Restoration of Constitutional Government in America".  Michael Young, co-founder of PCCOH and primary author of OHIO'S SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT will address the conference about this historic and essential effort to restore the states as the primary source of governance for the people of America.  The states must once again unite in freedom if we are to preserve America for future generations.

Volunteer Involvement Essential To Success - Here's What You Can Do To Help

The fourth of July is only a few weeks away.  All across Ohio there will be events commemorating America's Indpendence.  Gather some fellow patriots together and attend your local celebration.  While there arrange to hand out flyers to those along the parade route and have signature stations set up at central locations. Here's the flyer link at the web site: What's it all about?. if you have any questions or need additonal guidance please contact us at: [EMAIL DELETED]

 

Circulators Are No longer Required To Be State Residents

The requirements for circulators have been amended, for the entire announcement, please follow the following link:  http://www.sos.state.oh.us/SOS/elections/Directives/2009Advisories/2009-06.aspx.  All current and past signature efforts are still valid.  The only difference is that ciculators need not be state residents.

In part this is what it says;

(1)   Out-of-State Circulators.   In Nader v. Blackwell, 545 F.3d 459 (C.A.6 2008), the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit held that the requirements of R.C. 3503.06 that circulators of candidate petitions be Ohio electors and Ohio residents were unconstitutional.  In Advisory 2009-04, the Secretary of State applied the Nader decision to R.C. 3503.06(B) and concluded that the requirement that circulators of initiative and referendum petitions be Ohio residents is also unconstitutional.  Thus, in Directive 2009-10 and in the instructions provided with the directive, Ohio boards of elections were instructed not to invalidate any part-petition because a circulator listed a permanent residence address outside the state of Ohio.

The form for a constitutional amendment initiative petition is provided in R.C. 3519.05.  That form instructs circulators to provide their “permanent residence in this state.”  However, given the Nader decision, Advisory 2009-04, and the instructions given with Directive 2009-10, circulators may list on a part-petition a permanent residence outside of the state of Ohio

How You Can Help!

 
Ohio Freedom Team,
 
The task before us will require the dedication and commitment of patriotic volunteers like you who believe in defending their freedom and are willing to stand up and make a difference. If we truly believe in the principles that make our federated system of government great, then we must unite and restore the Union to the Constitutions.
 
No one can do it all, but all can do something. Basically, there are only four things that we need to do;
  1. Sign the petition for the Ohio Sovereignty Amendment
  2. Spread the message to others
  3. Help collect signatures on the petition
  4. Find others to help collect signatures
In addition to these fundamental tasks, there are other things people can do to help promote this great cause;
  • Set up a meeting or event for us to speak
  • Be a Leader for one of our designated areas
  • Get your organization to support us
  • Set up a Sovereignty Station where people can go to sign the petition
  • Promote us through mass media
  • Display yard signs, bumper stickers, and other signage
  • Wear PCCOH apparel
  • Review our website often, and get educated
  • Pass out PCCOH business cards
  • Make a donation (email the Committee for instructions)
  • Work with PCCOH staff at events
  • Volunteer your expert and professional services
  • Ask your public servants to support our cause
  • Study the Ohio and U.S. Constitutions
  • Help us NETWORK throughout Ohio and all 50 states
When your children and grand-children ask what you did to help save America in this time of need, what will you tell them?

DEFENDING AMERICA - A CALL TO ACTION

 

The word must go out, the message spread to every state in the Union.  The problem has been identified and a solution is now available. The OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT is the most comprehensive and legally sufficient means available anywhere in America for restoring  the peoples' control over government. We must, all of us, choose to act. Educating ourselves, voting, and listening to our favorite talk radio host is not enough, MORE MUST BE DONE! We must focus our efforts on the most effective means at our disposal, only then can we hope to regain what is in danger of being lost, our FREEDOM.  Do more than just be patriotic - it's time to become a PATRIOT! 

 

...for I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility against every form of tyranny over the mind of man.
 - Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to Dr. Benjamin Rush Monticello, September 23, 1800

PROMOTIONAL RELEASE - ALABAMA CONFERENCE
 
 
Official media release follows:
 
As our forefathers predicted, the time has come for the PEOPLE to put government back in its proper place.  Many efforts are underway but most only deal with the symptoms; FEW of them address the real problem.  The root cause of the endless unconstitutional governmental mandates and usurpation of power is non-compliance with and LACK OF FIDELITY to our state and federal constitutions.  The states must assert their sovereign rights under the 10th amendment and regain control over the federal government. 

But first, the people must regain control over the states SO THAT WE MAY COMPEL THE LEGISLATURES TO OBEY OUR WILL.

THE PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH) has developed a plan to restore constitutional government in America.  The OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT is the most comprehensive and legally sufficient means in America, for restoring the constitutional relationship between the states and the Federal government. When enacted, the Ohio Sovereignty Amendment will mandate legislative obedience to both the state and federal constitutions. The proposed, and certified state constitutional amendment is the most significant enhancement for good government and protection  of individual Freedom and Liberty SINCE PROGRESSIVES AND OTHER ANTI-LIBERTY FORCES BEGAN THEIR ASSAULT ON THE REPUBLIC SOME 100 YEARS AGO.

Join us Saturday, June 4, in Dothan, Alabama for America's first statewide conference on state sovereignty: "State Sovereignty and the Restoration of Constitutional Government in America".  Michael Young, co-founder of PCCOH and primary author of OHIO'S SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT will address the conference about this historic and essential effort to restore the states as the primary source of governance for the people of America.  The states must once again unite in freedom if we are to preserve America for future generations.

The time is now; it's time to make a stand.

The Awakening of Freedom in America
 

America is finally awakening to the perils knocking at our door. History is in the making once again, for it is our turn, this generation, to stand united and take action to preserve our American way of life, a system founded upon Godly principles and unique in the world.

Our PURPOSE is to bring government back into compliance with the Constitutions and serve the best interests of the people.  Our INTENT is to restore the fundamental principles of good government, under God, and with such leadership that we can bring integrity, honor and dignity back into the institutions of government.

Now is the time to stop government usurpation in America. The Rule of Law must apply to public servants and citizens, alike. It begins here. It begins now. It begins with us.

State Sovereignty - A Matter of Right, A Matter of LAW
 
State sovereignty is a matter of constitutional law secured by the Tenth Amendment to the federal Constitution. It is the duty of all state and federal public servants to acknowledge and enforce state sovereignty.  For years, state and federal government have operated as if the Constitutions do not exist. They have overstepped their powers and authorities in the name of “Public Welfare”, “Public Health and Safety”, “Interstate Commerce”, and “Executive Privilege”.
 
Under such a pretense, government could hypothetically put all of us into cages for our own protection and benefit. Such a notion sounds preposterous, yet it is becoming more of a real possibility with each new bill they introduce that effectively deprives us of our individual Rights and Liberties.The proposed SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT TO THE OHIO CONSTITUTION provides many protections that the current Constitution does not have.

March 17, 2011


THE OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT - RESTORING THE PEOPLES CONTROL OVER GOVERNMENT
Visit
www.osanow.com or www.pccoh.com

The OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT is the most comprehensive and legally aggresive peaceful solution currently proposed in America for stopping the federal government's countless usurpations of power and arrogant disrespect of the American people.  It is a reaffirmation of the original intent of the U.S. Constitution, that the states(and the people) have sovereign authority/power over the federal government.  The proposed amendment represents an extension and reaffirmation of the 10th Article Amendment of the United States Constitution.

The time for wasted and misguided efforts and half measures are over - we must move with sure intent and we must move quickly if we are to save America from collapse. PCCOH is an enthusiastic and dedicated group of private citizens with a passion for freedom.  Contact us to find out about this historic effort and how you can help take back America.  We are THE PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO and... we will not quit! Join us, visit www.pccoh.com, today.

RESTORING CONSTITUTIONAL GOVERNMENT IN AMERICA - OHIOANS HAVE THE ANSWER

There are many who realize there is something wrong, that the freedoms we once took for granted are now in danger of being lost.  A growing number of Americans have turned their efforts to education to better understand our history and founding principals.  To learn, in essence what it is that makes America the light of the world. Education is the key first step, then what?  For most, that is where their patriotism ends. For others, the answer is a different set of politicians. How's that working out?  We've been trying that for 100 years or more and still we keep hoping "these guys will listen to us"  At  PCCOH WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH!  It's past time we held all of them accountable AND restored control of the government BACK TO THE PEOPLE where it belongs.

Harnessing the SOVEREIGN power of the PEOPLE to control government

 - THE PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO

 

  from PCCOH - Moving Forward to 2011 07/05/2010

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH)

June 5, 2010

RE:  Moving Forward Toward the 2011 Ballot

Greetings,

We just celebrated America’s birthday and the peoples’ historical victory for freedom from British tyranny.  Now, 234 years later, we find ourselves facing new tyrants of our own making.  Yes, the people celebrate freedom, but they fail to recognize our impending dangers.  We must be vigilant in holding our government officials accountable to our state and federal Constitutions, for these are the compacts upon which our great federalist system was founded and government depends for all its political powers and authorities.

PCCOH has been working diligently to resolve our political challenges in an effort to restore constitutional government, both on the state and federal levels.  It was our hope that we could succeed in getting our proposed OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT on the ballot this November (2010), but it will not happen.  We believe this is a good thing, because the time is not yet at hand.  Our ultimate objective is not to get the amendment on the ballot, rather it is to get the amendment ratified by the people into law.  Going to the poles too early, before the people have been properly prepared, would be a tragic waste of effort.  Our goal is to win, and to win, we must be prepared.  And, to win at the poles, the people must be properly educated in the benefits of the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT and why it is so important for helping to restore constitutional government.

To date, we have only just begun to collect signatures on our petitions.  This effort must be accelerated if we are to succeed in getting the amendment on the November 2011 ballot.  But, getting it on the ballot with 700,000 signatures is the easy part.  The greater calling is in educating the people sufficiently in their understanding of how our system of government is supposed to work that they will not be easily swayed by the opposition when it comes time to cast their votes.  Our objective is the help educate 3,000,000 Ohioans over the next 12 months.  PCCOH is now working on plans to put this challenge into action.

From the very beginning, we knew that our only chance of success would come from uniting Ohioans with a patriot spirit and getting them acquainted with the principles of government as set up by our founding fathers.  Over the past 150 years, our government has continued to erode away from those fundamental principles that made America great and protected the individual rights of the people.  It has always been the duty of the people to hold government accountable to the Constitution, and now is the time for us to exercise our sovereign powers over government to put it into proper realignment.

Over the next few weeks, we will be launching various programs to help facilitate our cause.  Some of these include:

·         A more aggressive leadership recruiting program

·         Establishment of dedicated PCCOH Groups throughout Ohio

·         Building of communications networking with various media outlets

·         Regularly scheduled training seminars

·         Further development of our website with administrative functions

·         And more

We at PCCOH believe that there are many patriotic Ohioans.  We want to convert these people from mere patriotic Citizens to full-fledged Patriots, those who stand up and take action and defend our freedom and don’t merely talk about it.  We want to help organize those who want real SOLUTIONS and aren’t looking for resolve only symptoms of the problem.  We are not going to talk about problems, anymore.  We are going to focus solely on solutions, and we think that is what you want, too.

PCCOH has been very impressed with the activities of the various TEA Parties and 912 Groups in support of the Ohio Healthcare Freedom Amendment.  For those involved in that effort, you are to be commended for your efforts.  But, there is much more to do and a bigger problem to solve.  PCCOH is the ONLY group who is offering a real solution for TAKING BACK AMERICA.  For those who feel up to this challenge and want to see real positive change, then we invite you to get onboard with our program and help us take America back from those who have been running our country into the dirt.  We need real LEADERS!  We need volunteers who will work to defend our freedoms.  We need sponsors to help with the costs of spreading this important message all across Ohio.  We need real Patriots, not pretenders.  While some are out to win their battle, we are out to win the war.  It’s time to get busy.

Are you up to it!  Can you dedicate a year of your life to help us restore the principles of good government!  Are you ready, willing, and able to defend American liberty against an enemy that is aggressively moving to destroy that liberty!  Are you willing to stand with the brave and honorable few who will dedicate their Lives, Fortunes and Sacred Honor to save the greatest system of government ever devised by man!  Understand we WILL all fight, none will escape.  WE choose to fight, now, while we have the ability to do so, peaceably.

Once you understand that saving America will save your liberties, and you decide that you are ready to take action, then contact us to find out what you can do to help.  This is a contact sport – no spectators allowed.  If I sound a wee bit harsh, it is only because America is about to crash, and it is time for you and me to take corrective action.  Get engaged!

Thanks,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

  from PCCOH - Decide, Commit, Succeed 06/06/2010

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH)

June 6, 2010

RE:  Acknowledge, Identify, Decide, Commit, Succeed

Greetings,

This message is somewhat lengthy, but I feel it is important to help people decide and commit to this important cause.

Some of you may be familiar with ads on TV for exercise and fitness.  I am going to steal Tony Horton’s (P90X Program) slogan for our purposes, because many of us have difficulty getting started.  His slogan is “Decide. Commit. Succeed”.  This is very fitting for our purposes.  Of course, there are two elements missing – the first two elements, “Acknowledge. Identify”.  Let’s apply these to the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT cause.

ACKNOWLEDGE – At this stage, a person notices a problem and acknowledges that something must be done about it.  In Tony’s program, it is already presumed that you have acknowledged that you are out of shape and identified his program as the solution.  However, this is not the case for most Americans who are still trying to come to grips with the reality of our problems with government.  Actually, the problems aren’t with government, but with those in government who are running government into the dirt.

So, let’s first acknowledge that there is a problem.  How do we know there is a problem?  Well, we observe the symptoms, like: 1) high taxation; 2) high unemployment; 3) large presence of foreigners; 4) continuous wars; 5) over-bearing and violent police interaction; 6) you can’t pay your bills; 7) you have to have government permission to do things that were taken for granted when you were a kid; 8) increase in criminal convictions; 9) more and more abortions; 10) corruption and abuse in schools; 11) you can’t pray when and where you want; 12) expressing your thoughts becomes a crime; 13) churches must be careful what they preach; 14) government control over health care, medicine, and natural supplements; 15) catastrophes that receive delayed attention from government; 16) states who are in bankruptcy; 17) government making more and more deals with foreign nations that take away our rights; 18) kids graduating from school barely able to read and write and who have absolutely no comprehension how our government works; 19) general lack of respect, discipline, and motivation in young people; 20) politicians who blatantly refuse to listen to their constituents; and much more.

By recognizing that certain things just don’t add up, we start to acknowledge that something is not normal or right, and we start to notice some problems at home or with people we know.  In conversations, people are complaining more.  People seem generally upset and frustrated.  These are all symptoms that there is a problem.

IDENTIFY – Once we realize that a problem exists, we then must identify the cause, if we are going to fix it.  Unfortunately, most people look at various “issues” and believe those issues are the problem, such as abortion, corruption in government, health care, social security, immigration, taxes, and so forth.  These are NOT the problem, rather they are “symptoms” of the problem.  If all we ever do is focus on issues (symptoms), then the problem never gets solved and new issues will arise.  Let’s use the current gulf spill as an example.  You go out into the gulf and see oil floating in the water, and you say to yourself, “This is a problem”.  Then you say, “Why isn’t someone cleaning this up?”  Cleaning up the problem is an “issue”.  To solve the problem and prevent additional oil from emerging requires that we shut off the cause of the problem by plugging the hole from where the oil is leaking.  Of course, yet the bigger solution would be preventing it from ever happening again.

With today’s political environment, many people are recognizing problems.  And their first reaction is to start in on the various issues.  Because of their lack of understanding, they fail to recognize the fundamental cause for the problems.  Here it is – I’m going to tell you what the fundamental cause of all our governmental problems is.  It is “lack of control”.  Of course this needs a bit more definition for people to understand.

Our American system of government was designed to maintain strict control over government and its activities.  However, without someone holding those in government accountable to their limited duties, government has run astray, and those in government have abused and misused their governmental powers and authorities.  The result is the destruction of our system of government, stealing of the American peoples’ wealth, creation of a perpetual enslavement to debt, expansion of government authority around the world by military force, and destruction of the peoples’ individual Rights and Liberties and inability for us to provide for our futures.  The perpetrators are nothing less than criminals who have, through the manipulation of law, stolen our American and Christian heritages and are replacing them with complete tyrannical domination.  People who do not acknowledge this are either absolutely blind, so self-indulgent that they are oblivious to the corruption, or they are part of the problem.

The “solution” is to regain control over government.  Fighting individual issues will not solve the fundamental cause of our problems.  At most, it will only offer temporary relief for some, but bigger issues will emerge.  To regain control over government, the people of America must unite in purpose and take appropriate action to restrain government.  There are only two ways to do it: 1) by force of law; and 2) by force of arms.  It is our duty to exhaust all our peaceful solutions before using arms.  Our system is one of law, and the highest law is the Constitutions.  We have two – state and federal.  The state Constitution takes precedence over all domestic matters, and the federal Constitution takes precedence over all interstate and international matters.  The powers and authorities granted by the people through these Constitutions are limited and specific.  To regain control, we MUST get government back into proper alignment with the Constitutions, AND we must create provisions within the Constitutions that provide the people an effective and efficient means for holding government accountable to them.  NOTHING SHORT OF THIS SOLUTION WILL SUFFICE!

DECIDE – Restoring constitutional government is, of course, a bigger battle than opting out of government health care.  However, the process is exactly the same.  One of the biggest challenges for success is convincing the people that IT CAN BE DONE!  Most of us have lived all our lives in fear of government, being convinced that “you cannot fight city hall”.  This is absolutely FALSE!  Public officials work for the people.  The people tell government what it can and cannot do.  Government serves the people, not the other way around.

PCCOH has devised a plan for taking back America that WILL WORK!  But, we cannot do it alone.  We MUST have the support of the people to get the job done.  Once the people understand that it CAN BE DONE, then all that is left is for them to DECIDE TO DO IT!  Some fall short from fear of what freedom will cost them, so let me clear this matter up for everyone.  Here are the trade-offs.  Preserving and protecting your freedom will cost your “LIVES, FORTUNES, and SACRED HONOR”.  However, the price of refusing to fight for your freedoms will cost you the same things, your “LIVES, FORTUNES, and SACRED HONOR”.

The difference between fighting and not fighting for our freedoms is the end result.  Fighting results in FREEDOM and the ability to PROSPER, while refusing to fight results in ENSLAVEMENT and having NO PROPERTY OR WEALTH.  Fighting requires you to spend your time collecting signatures, going to meetings, helping others, spreading the cause, and be a person of honor and integrity.  Not fighting means you can be quiet, sit on your butt, watch TV, go bowling, remain ignorant, and be a person who is self-centered and dependent on government hand-outs.

I cannot decide for you, but I will not fight for you, either.  I fight for those of like mind and purpose – those who have the courage to defend what is right simply because it is the right thing to do.  Those who believe that to live in freedom is more important than making a paycheck, watching football, or lying on the beach.

So, decide!  And once you decide, then either get on with it and get it done, or get out of the way of those who will.  No excuses.  If you get stuck, then team up with others who are headed in the right direction.  Work together to achieve more.

COMMIT – Deciding to defend freedom is much like deciding to start a fitness program.  You know it needs done, and it is going to be inconvenient and painful.  Every man and woman must decide in their own mind their purpose for joining the battle.  Your purpose MUST be bigger than you.  What I mean is that the purpose must be something so important and powerful that you would be willing to do almost anything to achieve it.  Whether your purpose is to benefit your family, community or country, only you can decide.  But, once you do decide, then you must COMMIT!  To commit means that you find your inner-strength to do things you have never done before, to face your fears, and to do it even when no one else is around.  It becomes your personal battle.  Your commit is such that you will achieve it alone, if necessary.  You understand that maybe you cannot do everything, but you know there are things you can do to perpetuate and support the cause.  You do not hesitate or shirk your responsibility.  You do what you can when you can, and when you can’t, you find others to take your place or help.

Commitment is the most important element for success.  It requires perseverance and action.  Commitment is the one attribute that defines who you are as a person, for it is directly linked with your character.  For those who truly commit, then failure is not an option.

SUCCEED – When you have acknowledged a problem, properly identified the cause, decided to resolve the problem through proper planning and action, and committed to resolving it at all costs, then nothing but success can result.  But, know what success looks like by establishing your objective and recognizing it when you arrive.  An undefined objective leads to confusion and meandering.  Always keep in mind the reward for success.  And, when success comes, know that you did your best and are among the elite who deserve the rewards of your efforts.

Here’s the bottom line in regard to this message:  Government is operating well outside its constitutional authorities, and PCCOH has devised a solution for restoring constitutional government.  We need your help.  The results of this effort would be the ability of the people to hold government accountable to our state and federal Constitutions, by law.  Failure cannot be an option.  We are the only organization in the entire country who is offering a solution such as this.  Please make your decision whether this cause is something you can support.  And when you decide, then make your commitment, accordingly.

We look forward to standing with you in freedom.

Thanks,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

  from PCCOH - Concerns about the Proposed Recall Process 05/28/2010

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH)

May 28, 2010

RE:  Concerns about the Proposed Recall Process

Greetings,

There appears to be some concern over the “Recall” process in our proposed OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT.  Though the statements we received are a bit off point, I will address the issue to help clarify it.

QUESTION/COMMENT:

(1)          Can ACORN or MOVEON.ORG use paid petitioners to remove a public officeholder from office?

ANSWER:

No.  The OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT is about the individual sovereignty of the people and state sovereignty.  ACORN and MOVEON.ORG do not qualify as “the people”.  The matter of sovereignty, in particular that related to the Recall process, is not an attribute belonging to corporate or bureaucratic entities.  The Recall process belongs solely to the people as a means for controlling government by removing those deemed by the people to be abusive, negligent or otherwise incompetent to serve or satisfy the publics’ interests.  If the people decide that they are dissatisfied with a public officeholder, for whatever reason, they should be allowed to remove (fire) that person and replace them with someone they deem more appropriate.  The process, itself, requires the Citizens of the relevant district to vote by petition for the Recall, and if enough people deem the action appropriate, then they shall have the power to execute it.  The purpose of this process is to provide the people better control over their government and ensure that those they elect into office fulfill their duties to the public with integrity.

QUESTION/COMMENT:

(2)          Why does the Recall process bar the relevant public officeholder from future office and benefits?

ANSWER:

We believe that our state and federal Constitutions are the most important documents to our American system of government.  Yet, we are aware that the majority of those we elect to serve the people and uphold the Constitutions pay little attention or respect to those instruments.  This is absolutely wrong!  Public officeholders have but one primary duty, and that is to serve their constituents in compliance with the Constitutions.  When a public officeholder abuses or misuses his office, neglects his constituents, is incompetent or negligent in his duties, then the people have the right to remove him and replace him with someone else they deem more qualified for the office.

Now, when a Recall has been conducted, it is the duty of the people from the relevant district to nominate new candidates they like.  Then, the Governor would review the qualifications of those nominated candidates and appoint one to fill the remainder of the relevant term.  The nomination qualifications would be established in law and require a significant threshold so as to determine those candidates most favored by the people.

Regarding the matter of future service and benefits – we agree that the proposed Recall process provides harsh consequences against those who are Recalled or otherwise removed by force or compelled from office.  The point to be made is that the people should not have to tolerate those who they deem inappropriate for public office nor continue to pay them for their unsatisfactory behavior.  It has been postulated that the people could Recall a public officeholder who has committed no wrong.  Hypothetically, I suppose this could happen, but I believe that it would be unlikely.  When someone performs with integrity on behalf of the people, the people will naturally want to keep that person in office, because he is doing the job the people elected him to do.  And, since the Recall process is solely a right of the people, there should be no corporate or other form of interference form private interest groups for their own agendas.  The Recall process is executed by petition, vote as opposed to a vote at the polls, to allow for more immediate results and save money.  All petition signatures must be properly verified and authenticated by the Ohio Secretary of State.

This process serves as an aggressive incentive for public officeholders to perform their public duties with honor and integrity, realizing the consequences of unsatisfactory behavior.  Yes, the consequences to a Recalled public officeholder are severe, but the people demand strict compliance and accountability of government.  And due to our current circumstances, the need for such strict mandates is warranted.

Thanks,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

  from PCCOH - Letter to Editor - Response to "Do we really want another civil war?" 05/27/2010

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH)

May 27, 2010

Ben Marrison – Editor

Columbus Dispatch

Columbus, Ohio

RE:  PCCOH Response to Dispatch Letter to Editor, “Do we really want another civil war?”

Columbus Dispatch Editor,

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH) knew when we began our project to restore constitutional government that our biggest challenge would be to overcome the misperceptions and misunderstandings of the general public.  The short letter to the editor titled “Do we really want another civil war?” posted on May 27, 2010 is a good demonstration of the peoples’ ignorance of our American history and system of government.  I do not say this in disrespect nor to be condescending, rather to illustrate that the American people have lost their true connection and identify with our American system of government.

For example, when the southern states exercised their right to secede from the Union in 1860, their motivation was not to nullify the U.S. Constitution – it was to oppose the federal government’s usurpation of states’ rights.  What I mean is that, it was not the states that created the problem.  It was the federal government over-stepping its constitutional authority over the states that caused the states to rebel.  When the U.S. Constitution was ratified by the various state legislatures, it was on the condition that the federal government would operate within its narrow limits of authorities as enumerated at Section 8 of Article I of the Constitution.  This is clearly evident in the session writings of the debates during the ratification hearings.

The said letter goes on the label PCCOH, proclaim that we are “anti-government”, and falsely proclaim that our proposed OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT would “nullify our Constitution and federal laws”.  It is quite obvious that the writer has not read the proposed amendment or our website.  PCCOH is a non-partisan, non-denominational grassroots association of average people from the community who have come together in an effort to restore constitutional government.  We are NOT anti-government.  Our objective is the get government to adhere to the Constitution.  And, the proposed amendment does not nullify the U.S. Constitution or federal laws enacted in compliance with it.  If fact, Section 2(B) of the proposed amendment clearly recognizes the supremacy of the federal Constitution.

We at PCCOH do encourage smaller government.  America was established as a Union of states comprised of people who were hard-working, motivated, self-reliant, and shared a strong moral belief.  They were not people who relied on government to take care of them.  Our society is one built on the individual strengths of the people, not governmental hand-outs or principles of socialism or communism.  America is the land of the free and home of the brave, right?

The said letter attempts to arouse the people of the community with false accusations of civil war and other bloody encounters.  This is certainly not the case with the proposed OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT.  Though the amendment is an aggressive solution to meet these critical times, we have always proclaimed that it offers a “peaceful” solution to our problems.  The federal government is moving very quickly to defeat our freedoms and liberties.  It has always been the duty of the people to hold government accountable to the Constitution.  We have failed in that duty.  PCCOH has constructed a solution to hold government in compliance with and accountable to our state and federal Constitutions, and the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT provides the legal mechanisms for the people to be able to fulfill this duty.

We ask the people of Ohio to make a clear assessment of our current situations with the economy, immigration, war, foreclosures, Social Security, Medicare, health care, and on and on.  Our system is failing, and all government can do is rob the people with stimulus money to pay off the large corporations and protect their investors, while the people, generally, suffer from our loss of our industrial base and have to resort to buying foreign-made products.

We believe it is time to take back America.  For those who recognize the same problems we see, then we ask you to join us.  Go to www.pccoh.com to learn more about the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT.

Respectfully,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

Do we really want another civil war?

Thursday,  May 27, 2010 2:54 AM

About 150 years ago, several states began taking action to nullify the U.S. Constitution; this action led to the bloodiest war in our nation's history.

Now a group of right-wing conservatives, hoping to get an enthusiastic anti-government vote in the 2010 election, proposes the Ohio Sovereignty Amendment, which would nullify our Constitution and federal laws ( Dispatch article, May 14).

The group behind this effort calls itself the Peoples Constitution Coalition of Ohio. I wonder where the group gets its funding.

It demands a smaller government but does not have the courage to identify the programs it would eliminate. If you are approached by somebody and asked to sign a petition to put this “sovereignty” issue on the ballot, ask yourself and the person with the petition to explain why the Civil War should be fought again. Also, try to think, “What would Abraham Lincoln do?”

  from PCCOH - State-Wide Town Hall Meetings 05/19/2010

 
The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH)

May 19, 2010

RE:  State-Wide Town Hall Meetings

Greetings,

I would like to encourage every one of our volunteers to help coordinate state-wide town hall meetings in every county on Saturday, May 29, and Saturday, June 5 from 1 PM until 4 PM.  Our purpose is to bring people from the community out to here about the proposed OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT and sign the petition.  We also need to use this opportunity to recruit TEAM LEADERS to organize community groups to go door-to-door collecting signatures.  PCCOH can send out a state-wide public announcement to all newspapers and radio stations in our database to help make the announcement.  However, we believe it important for you to make personal contact with your local news media, also.

What we propose is that you conduct the meetings outside, if possible, at a park where distractions will be minimized.  Have people bring their own lawn chairs and non-alcoholic beverages, as appropriate.  Print out as many bi-fold flyers you think will accommodate your crowd so everyone who attends can have one to take home with them.  If you want to offer hotdogs and other food items, feel free to do so in accordance with local regulations.

Now, for those interested in going door-to-door, you can download the voter registration lists from the Ohio Secretary of State’s website by following these instructions:

(1)          Go to http://www2.sos.state.oh.us/cf_ftp/voter_ftp_home?agree_flag=Y to access list;

(2)          Find the county you are interested in and “download” the appropriate file to your computer;

(3)          In your Windows Explorer window, go to “Tools”, “Folder Options…”, “View” and deselect “Hide extensions for know file types”;

(4)          Go to the downloaded file on your computer and rename the file with a .CSV file extension instead of .TXT;

(5)          Double click on the file name, and it will open up a spreadsheet containing all the registered voters in the said county.

I did this for Knox County, and it works.  This wonderful information comes to us from Joeseph Mitsch of Crawford County.  If you have any problems downloading and accessing these files, let me know.

We must get aggressive at collecting signatures.  I don’t mean aggressive toward potential voters.  I mean we need to get after it right now and get it done – no delays, no excuses.  Spread the word to everyone, but be polite, friendly and pleasant.  Answer their questions if you feel you are knowledgeable enough to do so, accurately.  Otherwise, have them contact us or go to our website for answers to their questions.  If done in the right spirit, these events should be fun, informative and a great opportunity to build alliances.  If we fail to get all the signatures necessary to qualify for this November’s ballot, we will have to wait until at least next November before we can get on the ballot.  As long as we keep hold of our signatures, they will still be valid.

I have been talking with many people in the media and from around the state this past week.  Interest is building.  Some have contacted me from out of state, so we know the message is starting to get around.  You are doing a great job.  Keep it up.

PCCOH would like you to be aware of this – getting signatures is the easy part.  The bigger challenge is to adequately educate the people well enough with such understanding and conviction that, when the opposition begins, they will not sway and will hold fast to this cause.  And, we believe opposition will eventually come, with big money behind it.  We must form a strong and lasting bond with our communities and friends so that when the time comes to vote, the people will vote in favor of the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT and ratify it.  Freedom is not cheap and it is not always easy, but it is always worth the price.

When Patrick Henry recited those words, “Give me liberty or give me death!”, he was willing to give his life in pursuit of freedom.  When our soldiers go to war, they too put their lives on the line, and they do it in the name of freedom.  What are YOU willing to do for freedom?  PCCOH has designed a real solution whereby the people of Ohio will have the legal mechanisms to protect our freedoms from abusive government, better than any other state has.  We are leading the way to take back America and expel governmental usurpation and corruption.  We need every man and woman standing in support of this great cause.  And, we at PCCOH are proud to be standing with you.

For the town hall meetings, I will need volunteer information so I know who will be coordinating these events.  Please contact me, asap.

Thank you,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH)

May 17, 2010

RE:  Certified OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT ready for collection of signatures

Greetings,

Today is the day.  The certified OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT petition is ready for collection of signatures from Ohio voters.  (See attachment)

As we begin this extraordinary journey to restore constitutional government, let us all remember the importance of this task.  There will be opposition from those who either have an agenda contrary to our constitutional system of government, oppose the responsibility that individual freedom demands, prefer a socialist agenda, or are completely ignorant of the matter, generally.  We cannot let our opponents distract us from our goal or deceive us into believing that this effort will have no significant importance.  While we have the ability and opportunity to peacefully resist tyranny, we must grab hold of it and use it to our fullest advantage.

As we have said before, time is short.  To succeed in getting this amendment on the November ballot, we MUST have all 700,000 signatures cataloged and submitted no later than June 29th.  In order to have time to organize all the petitions we receive, we are requesting all petitions be submitted to us no later than June 20th.  The instruction page to the petition has changed, so please read and understand the new instructions.  If you have questions, then please ask before you start collecting signatures.  We will try to get something on the website to help answer questions about the petition, so keep checking.  If and when we do, I will make an announcement.

As you get petition packets completed with 100 signatures, go ahead and send them in so we can get started cataloging them as soon as possible.  Also, as you collect signatures on the petition, ask people to volunteer and help collect signatures.  We still need many County Coordinators.  If you can help in this regard, let us know.

We are here to help.  We need your devoted help for as long as it takes to get the required number of signatures and this amendment ratified into law.  I have also attached the listing of signatures required for each county.  We will keep you advised of our progress as we receive petitions.  In order to satisfy the requirements, we must have at least 44 counties qualified.

May we all succeed in this joint effort to take back America.

Thank you,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

May 13, 2010

RE:   Ohio Ballot Board Approves OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT

Greetings,

PCCOH went before the Ohio Ballot Board, today, and obtained approval for the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT.  The board must now notify the Attorney General’s office, who will then notify PCCOH of our official certification of the amendment.

         We are now preparing for our official signature collection campaign.  We cannot start until the official certification has been received, which should be within the next few days.  In the mean time, we will make the necessary adjustments to the petition and get it posted on our website for people to download.  In addition, we are adding our bi-fold flyer to the website so you can print and pass them around to people you come in contact with.  But, please don’t start collecting signatures until we give you the word to do so.

         For now, what we all can do is spread the word and start lining up all our help and make arrangements to collect signatures.  Also, we can work on establishing Sovereignty Stations around the state.  There is little time, about 40 days to collect roughly 700,000 signatures.  Attached is a file containing a list of minimum the number of signatures we need for each county.  Now is the time for people to step up as leaders in your counties.  Several can work together, if necessary.  But, we must get busy.

         We at PCCOH will try to put together some additional information to help you complete your mission.  Please monitor the website often for new information.  Check the “CURRENT EVENTS: PCCOH News” section of the website to keep up to date with the latest information.

         We thank everyone for your support to this point.  Now, the real work begins.  If you need information or help, then let us know.  Get in contact with your local PCCOH Leaders.  Send us information about PCCOH you find in your newspapers and other media outlets.  We still have time to get this ready for the November ballot if everyone pitches in.

         On to victory!

Thank you,

  from PCCOH - Amendment Certification 05/03/2010

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION of OHIO (PCCOH)

May 3, 2010

RE:   Certification of OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT

Greetings,

Today is a good day, indeed.  We initially launched our petition for the proposed OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT at the TEA Party Rally in Columbus, Ohio on August 1, 2009 - nine months, ago.  I am happy to say that, after our 4th submittal, we have finally acquired approval from the Ohio Attorney General, Richard Cordray, so that our petition can be certified.

To complete the certification process, the proposal must go before the Ohio Ballot Board, of which Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, is the chairperson.  The Ballot Board must review the proposed amendment to make sure it complies with Ohio law regarding proper process.  This includes ensuring that the proposed amendment satisfies the “single-subject” rule as specified at R.C. 3505.062.

In anticipation of this challenge, we have taken the following steps:

(1) The last revision of the proposed OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT was restructured specifically to address this issue by reorganizing the amendment and titling each provision in support of the single-subject, “SOVEREIGNTY: Duties, Powers and Authorities; Compliance and Accountability”;

(2) PCCOH conducted research for supporting case-law at the Ohio Supreme Court Law Library to specifically address the “single-subject” rule specifications; and

(3) PCCOH has acquired the support of Senator Grendell, who is also an attorney, to represent PCCOH in the Supreme Court of Ohio should it become necessary to challenge an unfavorable decision from the Ohio Ballot Board.

We are very confident that the proposed amendment “should” pass through the Ohio Ballot Board, successfully.  But if it doesn’t, we are confident that we can defend our position successfully in the courts.

As always, the Committee is thankful to all the dedicated volunteers who have selflessly contributed their time and resources in support of this important cause.  But, the battle is far from over.  We MUST recruit more volunteers who are willing to defend our freedoms and support this amendment that will give us the tools we need to hold government in compliance with and accountable to our state and federal Constitutions.

Please, please, please — continue to spread the message, and volunteer to do your part.  We ALL need this amendment in order to protect us from further encroachments upon our Rights and Liberties.  We will not quit.

Thank you,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

  from PCCOH - Saving America 04/25/2010

The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION OF OHIO (PCCOH)

April 25, 2010

RE:  Saving America

Dear Gary,

I am writing to you in response to the article “Saving America from Corporate-Statism”, by Nelson Hultberg, which appeared on your WHISKEY AND GUNPOWDER website on April 23, 2010.  I agree that a solution to the political scheme must be promoted and we must sever the corruptive influences of wallstreet over government.  However, these are both symptoms of a deeper and more fundamental problem.

The take-over of The United States of America has been evolving since before the establishment of our federal Constitution.  There is no perfect government.  All become corrupt over time.  There is only one way to eliminate this from happening.  From the beginning of the Union, it has been the duty of the people to hold government accountable, but there is a problem.

As we speak to the people throughout Ohio (and some other states), they are amazed to discover that the most fundamental mechanisms of protecting our system of government are absent from our state and federal Constitutions.  And, what few protections were put in the Constitutions, have been manipulated and perverted or amended by government to eliminate these protections.

The problem with the TEA Parties, the 912 groups, and articles like Mr. Hultberg’s, is that they only address the first three steps of a 5-step comprehensive solution.  Without the last two steps to complete the solution, the system (government) never reaches any state of equilibrium and sustainability.

The “key” to maintaining integrity in government is ACCOUNTABILITY!  There are only three ways to hold government in compliance, one by free-will and two by force:

(a)          By one’s moral compass or conscience (usually achieved through either love of thy neighbor or fear from the wrath of God);

(b)          By force of law; or

(c)          By force of arms.

At PCCOH, though we promote a moral standard that harmonizes with God’s law, we cannot rely upon this, solely, to hold those in government in compliance with our fundamental standards as a nation.  However, this is how the Union was established, and John Adams (founding father) knew that if the people of the nation and their leaders, ever became corrupt, that the Constitution would be completely inadequate to protect the Rights and Liberties of the people and prevent despotism from over-shadowing our freedom.  He expressed these sentiments in his comment, “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”  The people have ceased to be virtuous and religious, and our leaders have removed God from government.  We are desperately in need of a revival, and new checks and balances upon government must be established.

People are surprised to learn that neither our state nor federal Constitutions mandate, BY LAW, that government comply with the Constitutions or ensure that its laws are constitutionally compliant before enactment or enforcement upon the people.  It is “assumed” that these criteria are inherent within the meaning and intent of the Constitution.  And, they were, but government, over time, has expanded the meaning of the Constitution to encompass powers and authorities well outside its original intent, and the people are left without an effective or efficient means for holding government in its place.

Though we agree with all the ranting and raving going on about government corruption, it is time to implement a solution.  Mr. Hultberg, like everyone else, only talks about the problems, but offers no solution or plan for correcting the problem.  We have the solution.

Our solution is simple, but it will require the people of America to get out of their chairs and take an active part.  Attached, you will find a petition.  It is not your ordinary petition that lacks legal force, as so many are.  This is a petition to introduce an amendment to our state (Ohio) Constitution.  It is being implemented through the peoples’ initiative process.  Our objective is to get this amendment on the ballot for the people to ratify it into constitutional law, in Ohio.

Here is the plan.

State and federal government are corrupt.  The people have no direct ability to hold the federal government accountable to the Constitution, but the states do.  The people do have direct influence over their states.  The plan is to fix state government, first, and then mandate that the state protect its people from all unconstitutional encroachments by the federal government.  To do this, we are proposing the following:

(1)          Strict mandates that require government to adhere to the Constitution;

(2)          Penalties against any public servants who violate the Constitution; and

(3)          Provisions (the legal tools and mechanisms) that provide the people with an effective and efficient means to directly hold government accountable to the Constitution.

This plan does not require public servants to possess a moral conscience.  But, it does require them to obey the law of the Constitution, under threat of pains and penalties.  I invite you to review the attached petition and submit to us your comments.  We plan to initiate this plan throughout all 50 states.  To do so effectively, we will need all the help we can get.  We will need everyone to get on board with the program and promote it far and wide.

The reason I am taking the time to contact you is because I agree that America needs saving.  The said article, like so many others, provides no solution, only symptoms.  If we are to save America, then we must take action, and that action must be by force.  Our approach uses the force of law.  Though it is a peaceful solution, it is very aggressive.  Opposition will be great.  But, it must be done, or we will lose our freedoms, permanently.

If this project is something you can support, then I invite you to contact me, and we will include your organization in our partner groups.  I look forward to your response.  Together, we CAN take back America, and we CAN restore our federalist republic, and we CAN restore our Christian heritage.

Oh, by the way, the steps to a complete solution are: (1) Education and awareness; (2) Eviction of corrupt public servants; (3) Instatement of virtuous public servants; (4) Amendment to the law to mandate governmental compliance and accountability; and (5) Enforcement.

Respectfully,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

RE:   Training Meeting

Greetings,

On Sunday, May 2nd, PCCOH will be conducting a FREE training seminar in Mansfield, Ohio from 1 PM until 5 PM.  The purpose of this meeting is to provide PCCOH Leaders and all new volunteers and other interested parties an opportunity to get hands-on training on how to complete the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT petition, promote this important cause, and learn about state sovereignty and our American system of government.  Some of you will be hearing, for the first time, the truth about how The United States of America was established and our role, as Citizens, in making sure that government operate in compliance with our state and federal Constitutions.

Attached is a file of the event flyer.  Please distribute this far and wide.  Momentum is starting to build in Ohio.  We are making a difference.  More and more people are learning about the importance of “sovereignty” and how it affects our Rights and Liberties.  Our public officials are destroying America, and it is time for the people to take action.  Our plan is a peaceful one, but very aggressive.  To succeed, we need your help.

The meeting location is an abandoned store-front, so bring your own chairs.  If you have a folding table, we could use that, too.  See the attached flyer for more information.

It’s time to turn up the heat.  Hope to see you there.

Thank you,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

  from PCCOH - Font Modification 04/15/2010

 
The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION of OHIO (PCCOH)

April 15, 2010

RE:   Petition Modification – Font Size

Greetings,

This is a note to let everyone know that a slight change was made to the petition form that is downloaded from our website.  The content and structure of the petition is exactly the same as before – there is no change that would invalidate any petition.  All I did was change the font size used in the SUMMARY and AMENDMENT to a 10 pt.

It had been recommended by the Ohio Attorney General’s office that the SUMMARY be short and concise, no more than two pages, if possible.  To satisfy this parameter, I reduced the font size to fit the SUMMARY onto two pages.  However, upon review of the Ohio Revised Code, it states that the SUMMARY is to be in a 10 pt. font.  I contacted the Attorney General’s office to determine which parameter was more important, because there is no way we can satisfy the page and font parameters and still provide an adequate description of the amendment.  It was decided that the font size is more important than the number of pages, provided the SUMMARY is substantially shorter than the amendment.  It is.

The reason I am notifying you of this minor change is so that you don’t become alarmed by the change in appearance of the petition.  If anyone brings it up, please explain as I have.  The change does not constitute a “material” change to the language of the amendment, and therefore does not void any petition signatures collected.

When printing new petitions, please use the attached file or download the petition from our website.

Thank you,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

  from PCCOH - Update on the Amendment 04/14/2010

 
The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION of OHIO (PCCOH)

April 14, 2010

RE:   Amendment Update and More

Greetings,

The Committee worked very hard last week to update the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT and SUMMARY to conform with the comments by the Ohio Attorney General, Richard Cordray.  Late Friday night, I put the last touches on the petition, and it was then released for collecting signatures.  Over the weekend, people got busy and collected approximately 850 signatures.  The record in one day and one event was set by Toledo District Leader, Jim Flaugher and his crew, at over 700 at the ResistNet Rally in Cleveland.  Currently, we are sitting at approximately 1,050 signatures.  We need a minimum of 1,600, and with everyone’s help, we should easily satisfy that number by the end of this week.

The current version of the OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT is the best it has ever been.  Because of confusion by some over the Peoples Constitution Council provision in the amendment, the Committee decided to remove that provision and pursue it at a later date.  Also, the new amendment has been reorganized and structured for easy readability.  Several provisions that were previously under a more generic title have been separated under their own title, such as the Government Transparency provision.  The amendment, summary, and petition are all available for your review on our website at www.pccoh.com under the “AMENDMENT” button.

Though we feel the amendment summary has been written to satisfy all of the Attorney General’s concerns and that it should pass his scrutiny, we will prepare for the worst.  In the event that the amendment is rejected, we will pursue a challenge in the Supreme Court of Ohio.  We have also been preparing in anticipation of the review by the Ohio Ballot Board.  Time will tell, but we will not give up.

Lancaster Regional Director, Kim Wilhelm, and Lima Regional Director, Nancy Wheeler, attended the Dayton Freedom Rally and Wright State University and collected signatures, distributed information and answered questions.  Tomorrow, Toledo District Leader, Jim Flaugher, and Committee Member, Curtis Olson, will be attending the Hope for America Rally in MansfieldKim Wilhelm will be at the Tax Day Rally in Zanesville, and Michael will be in Cleveland working with Cleveland District Leaders, Alan and Debbie Wilson, giving presentations at John Carroll University and the Cleveland TEA Party Rally.  Yes, we have been very busy, and we intent to keep busy.

If you take a look at our website, you will notice all these events listed on the right-hand side of the HOME page.  By scrolling the cursor over the event listing, a popup will appear of the event flyer, which can be printed out and distributed.  Also, a video of a live presentation by Michael while in Erie, Pennsylvania (about 30 min.) is available for viewing.  Just click the button on the left-hand side of the HOME page titled Abusive Government: The Solution, The Plan.

Dave, our faithful webmaster, has been working diligently to launch our new Sovereignty Station feature.  We expect to see this operational very shortly.

Kim Wilhelm has been promoted by the PCCOH Committee from Lancaster Regional Director to Columbus District Leader.  Kim had demonstrated extraordinary dedication and effort to our cause and deserves this honor.

IMPORTANT:  Due to our intense effort to get the new petition submitted to the Attorney General, please send all outstanding petition signatures to PCCOH at the address listed on the petition instruction page no later than this Monday (04/19/2010).

Also, we are planning a PCCOH Leadership and Volunteer Training Meeting on Sunday, May 2nd, in Mansfield.  Please reserve that date on your calendar to attend.  An announcement with specific details will be sent out within the next few days.

It is time to start forming our own PCCOH groups around the state.  We have plenty of people who have shown interest in this important cause to justify this course of action.  The Committee will be working on a strategy and formulate a plan to make this activity effective, rewarding, educational, and fun.  Stay tuned.  If you are interested in this, give us some feedback.  We also believe that there are many people who are becoming disenchanted with the TEA Party groups and 912 groups due to lack of a viable solution for holding government accountable to the Constitution.  We have the solution, the plan, and drive to get government back on track.

Thank you,

Michael – Committee Member, PCCOH

  FW: from PCCOH - RESULTS FROM ATTORNEY GENERAL 03/29/2010

 
The PEOPLES CONSTITUTION COALITION of OHIO (PCCOH)

March 29, 2010

RE:   Results from Ohio Attorney General

Greetings,

On March 26, 2010 the Ohio Attorney General, Richard Cordray, rejected the SUMMARY for the proposed OHIO SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT on the basis that it was not a “fair and truthful statement” of the said amendment.  Mr. Cordray expounded upon his reasoning and revealed a few critical errors with the SUMMARY.  Our submittal and the Attorney General’s rejection letter can be reviewed on the Attorney General’s website at:  http://www.ohioattorneygeneral.gov/Legal/Ballot-Initiatives.

When we began this project, we understood that it would involve challenges, and there would be opposition.  We also understood the immense importance of this task to restore government to the Constitutions.  We understood it would involve learning how to work within the system to achieve our goals.  We understood that it would take sacrifice of our time, efforts and resources.  We understood that to achieve our objective, we would have to persevere and hold true to our course.  And, we understood that some would not be able to sustain the battle.  However, we resolved that we would not give up – we would do what was necessary to hold government accountable to its duty to the people.

Therefore, over the next week, we will review the SUMMARY and make such changes as necessary to satisfy the requirements set forth in the rejection letter, one more time.  We will ask that you resolve to stand fast to this cause and help us collect the necessary signatures.  We currently have over 300 people who have expressed their willingness to support this effort.  If each collects just 10 signatures, we would have more than enough to satisfy our next submittal.

But, that is not all.  We will begin to prepare the necessary filings to the Supreme Court should the Attorney General refuse to certify the next submittal.  We have worked diligently to have our voices heard, and we will continue to do so.  In about a week from now, we will call a meeting of the top PCCOH Leaders to review the new SUMMARY and enter their comments and suggestions.  Those people will be notified by me of the time and place of such meeting.  Our final submittal will be prepared, signatures will be collected, and we will once again seek certification of the proposed amendment.

Now, we have witnessed extraordinary support for the health care amendment.  Of course, the health care “issue” is the hottest issue in the country, at this moment.  However, it does not address the core problem.  Until we succeed in holding government in strict compliance with the Constitutions, government will continue to encroach upon our Rights and Liberties.  The key, folks, is the proposed sovereignty amendment.  It is the only solution being proposed that is designed to hold government in compliance with the Constitutions.  Understand, when we succeed with this amendment, most of the encroachments by government will be eliminated.  We need the kind of support demonstrated for the health care issue.  Time is running out.  We are P minus 80 days when we need to have our qualification signatures ready for November’s ballot.  We still have time, but we need to get busy and work quickly.  We also need more volunteers.  It is time to start recruiting heavily to get people on board to get the job done.  We know we can do it.

We are truly thankful for the efforts put forth thus far.  We have until June 20th to satisfy the November ballot deadline.  Please stand with us in this important fight.

Thank you,

Michael
