A. Sign the Petitions
First, a quick review: The Petitions for Redress of Grievances are
NOT merely an exercise in free speech conveying statements of
political discontent from the People.
First Amendment Petitions for Redress constitute formal, legal Notice
to our Government that it has violated the Constitution by either
trespassing outside the strictly limited authorities delegated it by the
consent of the People or because it has otherwise infringed upon the
fundamental Rights of the Sovereign People.
Petitions for Redress are LEGAL DEMANDS to cure Constitutional
torts against the People. As a creation and servant of the People, the
Government is obligated by the Rule of law, the Constitution, and Nature
herself to yield and present substantive Redress.
The Right of the People to peacefully secure Redress through the
exercise and enforcement of the Right of Petition is the
Constitutional instrument by which the People enjoy, and orderly
maintain, their Popular Sovereignty. This 800-year old Fundamental
Right was first articulated in written law as
Section 61 of the Magna Carta in 1215. It remains in force today
as a cornerstone in the Rule of Law as the
ten words of the First Amendment.
The WTP Foundation has
put forth (7) Petitions for Redress of Grievances. The subject violations include: the un-declared Iraq war,
the unconstitutional, privately owned Federal Reserve and fiat
"dollar"; the imposition of constitutionally prohibited direct,
un-apportioned slave taxes upon American labor; the gross infringements
upon the 4th Amendment Privacy and 5th Amendment Due Process Rights
resulting from the "USA PATRIOT Act"; the President's failure to enforce
the Immigration laws of the nation; the unconstitutional de facto
adoption of the "North American Union"; and the unconstitutional
infringements upon the 2nd Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms
depriving the People the practical means, if necessary, to exercise
their Right to Abolish their government and replace it with a new
institution as they may deem necessary for their Safety & Happiness.
We need to send an
unequivocal message to Washington: The People
will no longer tolerate the insolence of our servant Government or
tolerate its continuing and systemic deprivation of the People's
Fundamental Rights. We will exercise all non-violent means to secure our
Rights, including the Right to Retain our Money to secure Redress.
We need 1,000,000 Americans to sign
B. Serve the Petitions:
June 30, 2008 hundreds of volunteers will
formally serve the First Amendment Petitions for Redress of Grievances
upon every member of Congress and the President at their LOCAL
district and state offices.
The service, just as with the service of any legal document, will be
sworn by affidavit and constitute formal, legal Notice upon the
Government. The Petition package will explicitly advise each recipient
that they have an individual constitutional obligation to respond and
that they have forty (40) calendar days within which to respond.
Failure of the Government to Respond will cause the commencement of the
protest/enforcement phase of the Revolution project.
the same on the same day, thousands of other volunteers will stream
across the fifty states, serving the same Petitions for Redress of
Grievance upon every District office of every Senator and
Representative. These People will as well, document their service via
Well in advance of these events, volunteers will have an opportunity to
sign-up online and commit to service of a particular local District
office, or even multiple offices. We would like to have at least three
(3) volunteers commit to for each local office.
Volunteers will also have an opportunity to obtain, at very modest cost,
a June 30th "Service Package" including a CD-ROM containing
printable, electronic versions of the Petitions along with images of the
Petition signatures (both electronic and hand-signed). The package will
also contain additional materials, including the process server
affidavits that volunteers will need to sign and (timely) return to the
WTP office and the official transmittal letter.
(NOTE: A secure online system to obtain the Service packages
with further instructions for serving the Petitions will be
Well in advance of these events, volunteers will also have access to
Press Kits and Press Releases for use in their local
communities to provide advance notice to the press and other
organizations regarding these events. (NOTE: materials will be
Where possible, volunteers will capture the Service events on video for
the historical record and forward copies of such tapes to WTP for use in
publicizing the Revolution initiative.
C. Federal Litigation:
What do the last 10 words mean?
Despite a significant body of legal and historical documentation, the
courts have been loathe to address the legal meaning of the last ten
words of the First Amendment. In fact, in January, 2008 the U.S.
Supreme Court refused to hear the first federal lawsuit -- ever
had explicitly raised this most important constitutional question.
A limited number of
volunteer Plaintiffs are needed to initiate a federal lawsuit in each of the (11)
Circuits. The purpose is to force the federal Judiciary,
and particularly each of the U.S. Courts of Appeal,
to provide a formal, direct declaration of the
constitutional meaning of the First Amendment Petition clause.
The lawsuit is planned to be filed on July 11, 2008.
THIS ACTIVITY HAS BEEN POSTPONED
Because no federal
court has yet to directly address the specific constitutional question
raised, it is hoped that by raising the controversial issue in every Appellate
Circuit, that the U.S. Supreme Court will finally be forced to address
this most critical matter affecting the fundamental relationship between
the People and their servant government.
D. Protests to Secure Redress
After being formally served the Petitions for Redress on June 30, each
U.S. Government official will be under an express, individual
Constitutional duty to provide Redress to the Petitioners within (40)
forty calendar days.
Just as with Magna Carta of 1215, failure on the part of the Government
to timely provide such Redress will of necessity, force the People to
then initiate a series of high-profile protest events intended to
(peacefully) force the Government into compliance.
Should the Government fail to provide timely, substantive Redress by
Friday August 8th, Bob Schulz will initiate a hunger fast at the U.S.
Capital in Washington. CURRENTLY SCHEDULED FOR

Washington September 16-17
This important full-time protest event will occur on the National
Mall, halfway between the Washington Monument and the U.S. Capitol. The
event has been tentatively identified as "Hungering for Redress."
WTP Congress has applied for the permits necessary to support this
event for its currently planned six-week duration.
The permits allow 24/7 occupation of the entire venue, with certain
restrictions. The overall vision is to erect temporary tents and
educational kiosks on the Mall, with hunger-strike protesters coming
from every state to join in the non-stop protest, committing to whatever
duration of time each person deems personally appropriate for their
Current plans include provisioning the tents, fresh water and sanitary
facilities on-site, as well as numerous staged events, including limited
entertainment during the duration of the hunger protest. Plans are also
being considered for live satellite Internet broadcasts from the protest
Additional details of the "Hungering for Redress" DC event are being
developed and will be released shortly. Plans for local events across
the nation are also being developed.

is self-evident, such a bold undertaking requires not only that many
make a personal commitment to participate, but it also requires that
many make a personal commitment to share the burden of raising the
substantial financial resources that will be consumed as part of this
most important project.
Quite frankly, this initiative requires multitudes of individuals to
make a personal commitment to a common cause that, until now, has never
been unachieved by any single non-political freedom organization.
For us to succeed in our quest to restore Constitutional Order, we must
join in defense against our common enemy and commit, in union, to
exercising, and enforcing -- en masse -- the one tool bequeathed
to us by our Founders to non-violently contain despots: The
Right to Petition.
With that said, the WTP Congress has done everything possible to enable
those of even the most humble of means to help fund this cause.
The very good news is that with many making even modest contributions,
large amounts of funding can be raised relatively quickly. The recent
fund raising efforts of Presidential candidate Ron Paul are concrete
evidence that millions of dollars can be raised, literally overnight.
The truth is simple: The more money we raise, the more hell we can
The quicker we do it, the better.
Key to our project financing plan is our new $7/month "subscription"

credit card is charged just $7 on the day of initial processing, plus $7
each time your personally selected calendar date of the month occurs

Patriot Memberships and $50/month Son-of-Liberty Memberships are also
The punch line: If just 50,000 People committed to just a modest
$7/month level of support, this project could secure over $1 million
funding in just 90 days. That's not a bad start.
Then consider this: In the 1st three months of 2008 alone, Ron Paul had
approximately 60,000 individual donations totaling almost $7 million,
averaging almost $90 per donation. If only a fraction of those
same Freedom lovers were to donate only a fraction of the amounts
they donated to the Paul political campaign, this critical
project could secure funding of millions of dollars before the summer
protest events are scheduled to commence.
If we can roust up even more interest from the general public, only the
sky is the limit for manifesting the potential impact this project could
have upon our nation.
Quite frankly, it's what we need if we are to succeed.
Here's what you need to do:
