/" /> Reclaiming The Republic

Skip to: Site menu | Main content

There is no greater issue facing our Republic today than Federal Tyranny. If we work together we can save our individual liberties and sovereignty, the sovereignty for each State and the Republic (all the States collectively), and most importantly save our Constitution!

The States must take back the roles, responsibilities, and powers that were reserved to them and were not expressly delegated to the general government. The process to do this is simple. It only takes one State to initiate an audit and then call upon their fellow States to join in a convention (i.e. process) to audit the Constitution, which we refer to as Republic Review.


Special Note

Please remember that the word "convention" not only means a meeting of delegates. In context to this usage and in reference to Republic Review, "convention" is specifically referring to a process or methodology. We have been asked to use a different word here by many whom we work with because of people and organizations that feel they have been anointed to control what words are acceptable, and have been creating a hypersensitive application to this particular "C" word like the progressives who have done the same with another "C" word... "conspiracy".

Some would have you believe that this is a secret code to an Article V Convention. Don’t let these thought bullies tell you what we are stating, we simply ask that you read both sets of bullets below and then ask these thought bullies how the convention of Republic Review defined below is either secret code or such a path.


The Irrefutable Argument for Republic Review - In Bullet Format

The Model For Republic Review - In Bullet Format

  • Explaining the Flow Chart for Republic Review in Bullet Format

    • Obtaining a majority of State Legislators in both Houses (except Nebraska) to call for the Republic Review process in one State, acknowledging the requirement to initiate the audit portion of the Republic Review process.
    • Target conservative or dark red State Legislators to learn the founding principles of republicanism and the separation of powers between the States and the general (i.e. Federal) government through the irrefutable argument for Republic Review Presentation and bullet points
    • Once they understand the premise of the audit they also need to learn what and why Madison and Jefferson attempted to conduct Republic Review in 1798, which will then help them realize and actualize their role, authority, and power of corrective oversight over the Constitution.
      • As they do, the leading legislators championing Republic Review in each legislative body will begin working on draft Resolutions to call for an audit of the Constitution against the general government
      • They will also create a Resolution calling upon sibling States to join them in the audit to conduct Republic Review
        • These Resolutions should be inclusive of all identified unconstitutional RRPs
        • Once a comprehensive resolution with all violations has been passed by both houses this resolution will be promulgated to fellow States that would be receptive to fulfilling their obligation of preserving the Constitution and Republic.  Focusing on Red States or those States with a desire to enforce  the Constitution is done first to allow momentum to develop
        • Proponents for auditing the Constitution and  calling for Republic Review in each of the Legislative bodies must build a coalition within their States’ bicameral Legislative bodies to obtain a majority to pass legislation to conduct the audit and call for Republic Review
    • Working with the grassroots organizations in the State
      • If necessary these Legislators will need to work with State and County Party’s (i.e. Constitution, GOP, or Libertarian Parties) central committees and Grassroots organizations and set up Constitutional Committees of Correspondence and a PAC in each State dedicated to demanding compliance to the Constitutions to apply pressures on other legislative districts to get their fellow Legislators to fulfill their oath and do their job in protecting their citizens from Federal tyranny or have these organizations work in replacing this Legislator with one who will fulfill their oath of office
    2. Once a single State obtains a majority of support within the two Legislative bodies, they must:
    • Finalize a State Resolution and pass a single concise and succinct Final Resolution to call for their State to Audit the Constitution and call other states to join in the audit and Republic Review process
    • Pass necessary administrative measures to
      • Research and identify all Federal offices, agencies, bureaus, centers, commissions, councils, administrations, services, and Departments (i.e. every entity operated and funded by the general government)
        • Also initiate an audit of all rulings by the Supreme Court to verify jurisdiction and to verify that the Court did not violate the separation of powers, such as legislation or enforcement of new laws
        • Also initiate an audit of all Executive Orders by the President of the United States to ensure the Orders did not violate separation of powers
        • Also initiate an audit of all treaties to verify that they were passed by two-thirds of the Senate, or the treaty is null and of no force.
        • Also initiate an audit to verify that all Amendments that the State has to ratify since its establishment, were done in full fidelity to the U.S. Constitution and the State’s Constitution
      • Initiate these full audits within the States Legislative bodies either by committee and then the body of the whole, or by the body of the whole
    • Simultaneous to the initiation of the audit this State must:
      • Initiate and build coalitions with other States
      • Start drafting a Resolution to call upon ALL States in the Republic to coalesce with them to conduct Republic Review (similar to the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions)

Note: In order to send a clear message of Constitution enforcement, the following step is highly recommended that any and all States joining in the audit for Republic Review withdraw or rescind their application for an Article V Convention.  They can always reapply again; there is no quota or expiration to these applications.

    • If a State passing a Resolution to join in the Audit and/or Republic Review which possesses an active petition to Congress for an Article V Convention, then the legislators should also pass a Resolution or Bill rescinding this application from Congress


3. The initial State that commences the audit sets the decorum for the Republic Review process

      • It is important that the first State initiating Republic Review establish the decorum for new States to join by requiring them to rescind their application for an Article Five Convention prior to joining.
      • Establish a Research Committee to verify every RRP is either in compliance with the Constitution or a violation of the Constitution and to identify the value of materials and holdings held by each unconstitutional RRP for disposition purposes
    • Confirm that the only authorized process within the Constitution for the general government to assume any new RRP is through the Constitutional amendment process, ensuring that the States did not ratify a Constitutional Amendment authorizing an alternate process allowing for the Supreme Court, the President, or Congress to amend the Constitution exclusively or did the State Amend the Constitution to allow the general government or any or all branches thereof to bypass the Article Five process without the States authority.
    • If the Constitutional amendment process in Article V is still the only valid process, then:
      • Establish a list of all Federal offices, agencies, bureaus, centers, commissions, councils, administrations, services, and Departments (i.e. every entity operated and funded by the general government)
        • Create a list of all Constitutionally authorized RRPs within the Constitution and ratified amendments
        • Begin listing ALL unconstitutional Roles, Responsibilities, and Powers (RRPs)
      • Ensure that the Constitutional amendment process was either followed or violated in the creation, forming, or establishing each new RRP since 1791 (after the establishment of the Treasury, State, and War (Defense) Departments and the General Accounting Office)
      • Obtain official and formal confirmation from Congress as to whether each RRP is in compliance or violates the Constitution because the Constitutional amendment process was not followed
        • Did Congress forward an Amendment for ratification by the State for the RRP and receive formal ratification documentation from the requisite required States
        • Did the States properly ratify the RRP by the codified process of each State
          • This is an important issue, because there is evidence that the Fourteenth, Sixteenth and Seventeenth amendments were not properly ratified; consequently every amendment since the 12th Amendment must be verified as a part of the “Audit”
            • Each State will have to confirm the veracity of each ratification in compliance to the States and the United States Constitutions of the time of ratification
      • If not, the general government usurped the RRPs in question and they are in violation to the Constitution
      • All violations are moved forward to the RRP Disposition phase of Republic Review

Note: It is expected that the general government will be hostile to the process; so their stonewalling will be expected and no answer will be considered an affirmation of the violation.

4. As new States join in the audit and Republic Review process

      • Each must begin establishing secure communications, networking, and architecture for an online collaborative environment that is designed with full availability and redundancy
      • Each State must be able to function as an island and as well as a part of the whole online Republic ensuring full redundancy and synchronization and merging of information – maintaining full configuration management of all data within each State
      • Each State joining Republic Review must continue to research and verify compliance and violations to ensure full integrity of all work by each State; ACCURACY IS PARAMOUNT

5. Once 13 States have joined Republic Review then the States will organize the process

      • Each of these States have resolved and committed to NOT RATIFY ANY AMENDMENTS until the general government is within compliance to the Constitution
    • 13 States is the threshold that will block the ability for any amendment to be ratified until the completion of Republic Review
      • This will keep the general government from being able to validate any unconstitutional RRP by finally following the amendment process
      • This will also completely negate any efforts by those trying to convene an Article V Convention. The funding for this must be paid for by the States; thus, any money being spent would be a complete waste of States’ valuable resources
    • Once each State has verified the legal ratification of Amendments and confirmed Constitutional violations for illegally ratified Amendments and RRP’s in the RRP Disposition stage, the body of the whole (all States) will begin a joint formal review of each RRP
      • Formally set up three committees amongst the coalesced Republic
        • The Research Committee (this committee was set up in each independent State prior to this Stage)
        • The Dissolvent and Decommission Committee
        • The Amendment Recommendation Committee
      • In the Research Committee, each RRP is reviewed as to its Constitutionality,  All violations will be parsed and sent to either the Dissolvent and Decommission Committee  or the Amendment Recommendation Committee
      • Each RRP must be assessed as to its value, cost, scope, and function both in a historic and current context to the Republic

6. Continuation of obtaining additional States to create “political” critical mass

    • Political critical mass is obtained when the States involved in Republic Review constitute a majority in both the House and the Senate.  Currently that would be the following 27 States:
      • WY, SD, ID, UT, AR, OK, TN, AL, MO, KS, IN, OH, WI, SC, ND, MI, KN, FL, LU, WV, GA, MT, AL, TX, NC, PN, and IA
    • The reason a majority in both houses is required to support Republic Review, to ensure enough of Congress will cooperate with the Republic Review process because only a simply majority is required to pass the required legislation
      • It is anticipated that Congress will not cooperate with the States’ intent to obtain compliance to the Constitution until the States have the Constitutional leverage to apply enough political pressure on their representatives in both houses of Congress

7. The RRP Disposition Process,

      • Every RRP with a minimum of 13 States demanding Dissolvent and or Decommission of the unconstitutional RRP and that the RRP be returned to the States and the Republic will be sent to the Dissolvent and Decommission Committee. This process is performed by the entire body of the whole.
    • Every RRP with a minimum of 38 States that desire the unconstitutional RRP be retained then the RRP will then be forwarded to the Amendment Recommendation Committee
      • This implies that 38 States will be participating in Republic Review
      • However, with the current threshold of 27 State being necessary to dismantle all unconstitutional RRP’s – getting 38 State involved is not needed or anticipated.


8. The Dissolvent and Decommission Committee

      • This committee uses the aforementioned assessment by the Research Committee to determine if each RRP possesses personnel, resources, content, schedules, and budget of value
      • RRPs with enough significant deemed value will be decommissioned with a fixed resource loaded schedule and budget requirements will be communicated to Congress in Resolutions from the Republic requiring Congress to promulgate specific Resolutions in decommissioning each of the RRP’s along with the required transition of resources to be moved to the States
      • RRPs that are identified as useless (such as Education) will be Dissolved within a specific established timeline
      • Congressional Resolutions must include a conclusion that the creation, formation, and establishment of each RRP were created as a strict violation to the Constitution failing to get the States authorization.  In the Ratification process of the Constitution it was clearly asserted by the delegates explaining the Constitution that the States must delegate each RRP to the general government.  Consequently, as deemed by the Republic and in accordance to the U. S. Constitution which is the Supreme Law of the Land, each of the RRPs that are identified as violations must be dissolved and or decommissioned per the prescribed schedule provided by the Republic.

9. The Amendment Recommendation Committee

    • Key Notes regarding the creation and existence of this committee during the final phases of Republic Review
      • The existence of this committee is contingent up 38 States because this is the three-fourths threshold necessary for an Amendment to ratified and applied to the Constitution
      • One must consider the diametrically opposed positions between red and blue States and these sixteen states: California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington will not desire the restoration of our hybrid Constitutional Republic.
      • Even though these states may join, one should and must expect these states to be belligerent towards those state seeking to restore individual liberty and individual sovereignty
      • The likelihood that these States will acquiesce with the red states on matters of amendments is such a remote possibility that the author of this process cannot fathom harmony to come from these states.
      • However, it would be disingenuous if not deceptive not to include the potential of harmony within this process. The Lord has bestowed harmony and the spirit of reverence for liberty with this nation throughout this nation’s existence and He can once again show His Divine Hand of Providence in guiding the nation again.
      • Be assured that the red states will not surrender their liberty and this Constitution; consequently, the more numerous red States will succeed in forcing full compliance to the Constitution.
    • Nevertheless, if by remote chance that 38 States join the Republic Review process and by even a more remote chance that 38 States would desire to retain any of the unconstitutional RRP’s (such as the Veterans Affairs) the committee will provide the sitting Congress guidelines and parameters to help them efficiently and effectively author an Amendment to the Constitution with a short sunset provision to the amendment (no more than two years)
    • TO BE CLEAR, the Amendment process is outside the Republic Review Process
      • Consequently, all Amendment recommendations forwarded to Congress will remain unresolved until the completion of Republic Review process, and the subject RRPs will be given a two year sunset schedule (at the most) at the completion of Republic Review to allow for the States to ratify the Amendment or not
      • AGAIN, the focus and commitment of Republic Review is obtaining full compliance to the Constitution from the general government before ANY Amendment is ratified
    • If by even a more remote chance, Congress fails or refuses to author an Amendment requested by 38 States and if these States truly desire the recommended amendment, then after the conclusion or adjournment of Republic Review, each of these 38 States could then apply individually for an Article Five convention to amend the Constitution.  This is necessary because all States working in the Republic Review process have already withdrawn their application to Congress for an Article V Convention to join the Republic Review process as mentioned in bullet point 2.  Keep in mind historically almost all Amendments generated by Congress were only desired by a basic majority of States requesting the Amendment not a 38 State threshold.
      • It must also be noted that:
        •  Congress failure (each Representative and Senator) to follow the recommendations from Republic Review would be a detriment to each members career.  The constituents of these Representatives and Senators would and should consider replacing each in their next election
        • It is unfathomable how Congress would not act to retain a RRP – rather than see this RRP complete it’s sunset clause from the Dissolvent and Decommission Committee within Republic Review
        • The States’ path for Amending the Constitution within the Amendment process, which is depicted in this section, is NOT a recommendation by any means.  Because it is a prescribed alternative within the Constitution and until this is removed by an Amendment it must be included as a Constitutional path for amending the Constitution. It would be disingenuous for an academic process not to include all existing processes.
        • That said, as one fathom both the technology and contractual authority the State possess over the Constitution; it is very realistic that the Article V Convention can be removed from the Constitution in congruence to Madison’s view of the dangers of Conventions in making modifications to the Constitution regardless of how minute those seeking the change attempts to justify the need of a Convention.  The dangers will always outweigh the need.
    • One must also note that once an Amendment is promulgated by Congress to the States for Ratification a State election may change the make up of a particular State’s paradigm where the Amendment may not get ratified.  If these Amendments are not ratified within two years the Amendment will expire in accordance with the sunset clause asserted by the Amendment Recommendation Committee.

10. Adjournment Process

      • This is an administrative process for the States to perform and document all “Lessons Learned”
      • It must be noted that:
        • This process is where States will finally have the conversation that Hamilton and Madison referred to – that the States must create barriers to guard against general government encroachments again
        • These barriers may result in Amendment recommendations to the Constitution or common internal processes to the States or even Amendments to the States’ Constitutions.  To obtain these Amendments the States will need to engage in a Constitutional education campaign to help the electorate once again understand the Constitution and what things may be necessary to improve our self-government and
    • States will also independently need to determine what changes within the States will be required in addressing the resulting changes from having their powers restored from Republic Review
    • Conclusion
    • In placing context to the relationship of the States to the general government the States are the parents and the general government is their child
    • The calling for and process of Republic Review is getting the parents to coalesce/unite and have the adult conversation about their child and addressing its out of control behavior.
