SIGN UP TO BECOME A COMMITTEEMAN
“If a man vow a vow unto the LORD, or swear an oath to bind his soul with a bond; he shall not break his word, he shall do according to all that proceedeth out of his mouth.” - Numbers 30:2
Becoming a Committeeman requires that you will take NLA’s Civics and Government by Consent Courses. These courses will prepare and qualify you for these positions.
COMMITTEEMAN - is a non-paid elected position that will require about 40 hours of your time a year around election time, in the evening and are present on Election Day during the counting of the votes. Committeemen are the People who choose “whose on the primary ballot for election.” They also witness the counting of the votes and have the power to recall. Nomination and election is quite simple. Nomination for “Committeeman” is by petition that requires signatures from 5% of Republican or Democratic Party members within the election district you are running. Rarely are there more than 400 party members within any election district. This usually requires about 5-20 signatures from party members in your election district. You may run in any election district within the town or city you live in. Election of the Committeemen is at the primaries and if there are no challengers you will be deemed elected at the primary. In the very rare case where there are challengers your name will appear on the ballot at the primary election.

Because the Committeeman chooses who gets on the ballot for elective office it is necessary that the Committeemen know the Constitution theefore we posted two courses to qualify for the position, under the tab "COURSES" on the blue bar above. Take both our “Government by Consent Course” and “Civics Course.”

It is through the office of the “Committeeman” that We the People “Consent” to our government, therefore everyone should be a “Committeemen” at least once in their lifetime. There is one elected “Committeeman” for each party in every election district. These are the People who choose who will be on the ballot for the primary election, where We the People make the final party decision to run our choice in the general election. If the “Committeemen” are doing their duty on behalf of the People they would only support candidates that “know” the Constitution and commit to supporting and obeying it in return for the “Committeemen” support to put them on the ballot. Elected Committeemen have the authority to “recall” any elected individual who do not honor their oath. It is through this local political process that We the People “Consent”, for if they do not obey, we can remove them from office, via recall! The question now is, why aren’t we doing this? The answer is, that the oligarchy have removed the “Committeeman” narrative out of the political dialog and have seized total control of We the Peoples’ political process, thereby dictating the choices for us to choose the criminal on the right or the criminal on the left.
In 1796 George Washington, in his farewell address, warned us that “through the course of time cunning, ambitious, and unprincipled men would subvert the power of the people and seize for themselves the reins of government (the elected Committeeman) through private Associations. He went on to tell us that once they seized the reins of power a/k/a the committeeman, the parties that would arise would; (1) destroy the very engines (the political process) which have lifted them to unjust dominion, (2) destroy the regular deliberation and action of the constituted authorities, (3) open the door to foreign influence and corruption, thus the policy and the will of one country will be subjected to the policy and will of another, (4) serve to organize division, (5) ruin public liberty, (6) stifle, control and repress, (7) foment occasional riots & insurrection, (8) kindle animosity of one part against another, (9) put in the place of the delegated will of the nation, the will of the party elite, (10) agitate the community with ill founded jealousies & false alarms, (11) undermine the Constitution which could not be directly overthrown, (12) distract the public councils and enfeeble the public administration, (13) drive the spirit of revenge, (14) leads to despotism”. Washington concluded, “…parties are truly your worst enemy”.
HOW THEY EXPUNGED THE COMMITTEEMAN IN NY
The Gate Keeper Clause - In 1911 Section 21 of the New York election law, which had helped protect our Republic from the ruination George Washington forewarned us about, was cleverly removed.
“… No organization or association of citizens for the election of city [town] officers shall be deemed a political party…” Section 21 New York election law
The political process is an “Unalienable right” of We the People, political organizations or associations are the epitome of “Mob Rule”.
The aforesaid clause stood to deter the creation of private political associations, which is what the parties are in fact today. After the eradication of the gate keeper clause was accomplished, the legislators inserted election law Article 2 thereby crafting the “sub-committee” that provided the replacement entity a/k/a town committeeman, which the usurpers entitled “Member of the County Committee”, which is no office at all.
This Un-Constitutional Legislation Empowered "progressive" operatives to facilitate the destruction of the “political process” a/k/a the “engine of freedom”, and seize control of the “committeemen” a/k/a the “reins of power” through a somewhat simple change in the titles of their prey. So it was, that one hundred (100) years ago, "progressive" operatives in power at the various Board of Election (BOE) offices, working with operatives from both political parties or private associations, together expunged the true elected “Committeeman”; and, implemented the façade we have today, otherwise known as the Democrat and Republican parties. These progressives did indeed subvert the sovereign power of We the People, an unalienable right, and usurped to themselves the fundamental reins of government, the committeemen. They then destroyed the very engine, (political process) which had “lifted them” to their “unjust dominion” ruling over the people. To this day these “progressive” continue to dominate both political parties.
Progressive legislators in collusion with collaborators at selected Boards of Election and power players in both political parties, it can be deduced, secretly orchestrated the creation of what in fact are private political party associations. This was indeed a direct but covert assault upon our Republic, and set the stage for the total perversion of the public office designed to be the closest to the will of the people. The assault placed the entire direction and controls of our country into the hands of a small cabal with a deliberate intent on destroying the framework of our Constitutional Republic.
In order to pull off their Scheme, empowered by the insertion of election law Article 2, they needed to go unnoticed and undetected and accomplished the following three objectives, spread out over calculated periods of time:
1) Change the titles from (the elected) “Committeeman” to (the nominated) “Member of the County Committee” at the primary elections. Since the controlling powers saw to preparing the necessary designating petitions for their prey, this was not a difficult exploit.
2) Oscillate part of their power base by changing half the counties in the state to an odd year election. With this set-up, the newbie committeemen would always be met by a pre-existing, in place power structure.
3) Create the necessary but “slanted-toward-rigged” party rules, implemented in pieces over time, to enable control of everyone under their reach.
The execution of these three things accomplished the expunging of the true elected committeeman, so that today there is not one committeeman currently recognized at any Board of Elections (BOE) in New York or by any persons in the political parties.
How we will Take Back the Republic
1) Elect at least five true committeemen in each of our 3133 counties across America, who can then appoint and train committeemen for the next election. Most of the existing committeemen can be reeducated and brought back into the political system.
2) The Unified United States Common Law Grand Jury, being the sureties’ of peace on behalf of We the People will file a Federal Case in a court of record for a judgment against all State Boards of Election requiring them to recognize the elected “Committeemen” and turn complete control back to We the People.
3) Execute judgment upon the NYSBOE guilty of disenfranchisement of our fundamental unalienable vote through elected committeeman.
We are not aware of any State in the United States that have “elected committeemen” we have found some States that elect and/or nominate candidates by caucus, this is not a valid process for committeemen because Committeemen represent their “election district” and therefore must be nominated by at least 5% of the People within their election district and then elected by the People in their “election district”. When chosen by a caucus people are not identified by their election district. Therefore Committeemen must be nominated by petition and elected at the primary election. After a “Committeeman” is nominated by petition and if there is no primary challenge the petitioner is deemed an elected “Committeeman” for that election district.
The title “Member of the County Committee” is a party association position that may or may not walk a petition to be nominated at a primary, for an election at an executive committee party meeting, and not a primary election. They might even be appointed by the party chairman and then elected at a party meeting. Nevertheless this position has no lawful right to be placed onto a primary ballot because no elected title exists. The only elected title for a committeeman is “Committeeman” who must be chosen by the People within an “election district”.
THE COMMITTEEMAN TEST
Recapping the Facts: To lawfully fill the elected position of “Committeeman” the following four (4) steps “MUST” be performed and if not that election district is unrepresented and you can be assured that that election district has been taken over by party bosses who have 100% control over its party members titled “Member of the County Committee” and if these members act outside of the party “bosses will” they are removed and replaced by the party bosses, this is the epitome of “Mob Rule”, and a sure sign that they were never elected because the only way any-one can be removed from an elected position is by impeachment, indictment or the ballot box.
1) “Committeemen” must walk a petition for signatures, You cannot get signatures at a caucus because those signatures are from people in other “election districts.” Also caucuss may be held on dates that are outside the walking dates.
2) The proper designating title on a petition for a committeeman is “Committeemen”, anything else is something else.
3) “Committeemen” must achieve 5% of an election district’s support in order to be nominated [example: if there are 200 registered party members within an “election district” 10 signatures will be required to win a nomination, which is about average]. If two people are running for the same “election district” position and they both have a signature on their petition by the same person the candidate who achieved the signature first seizes that vote.
4) If the person running for “Committeeman” is unchallenged they are “deemed elected”. If they are challenged, then one will be elected at the primary election. Take note: every candidate on the ballot running for office at the primary election is nominated for the general election with the exception of the “Committeeman” who is the “only candidate” that is “elected” at the primary election.
The following New York State Supreme court rulings support the aforesaid facts concerning “Members of the County Committee” and like all standing committees they were created by and exist pursuant to the Rules of the Party and have no vested constitutional or statutory right to office.
"The County Committee had duly authorized the creation of such a town party committee or had conferred rule-making powers upon it. The creation of a town party committee, its powers, authority and procedures are solely the province of a county committee"... - Francisco v. Borden, emphases added.
“The Executive Committeemen have no vested constitutional or statutory right to office. Their claim to serve as members of the Executive Committee must rest upon the Rules of the party since the Executive Committee in common with all standing committees was created by and exists pursuant to the Rules of the Party… The creation, selection and grouping of committeemen from the town or city legislative districts, whether they are county committeemen or city or town committeemen is a matter solely within the power and province of the county committee.” - Bell v Kirwan, emphases added.
“...town political committee can be formed only upon the authorization of the County Committee in which the Town is located. It would follow that the rules and regulations governing the procedure of the Town Committee should come from the County Committee.” - DeCamilla v. Connery, emphases added.
“It is not disputed that the Executive Committee exists by virtue of the rules of the County Committee and is not a creation of the Election Law.” - Bauman v. Fusco, emphases added.
Government by the Consent of the People is only possible if the People choose their representatives and recall all elected officials that do not Honor their oath. Which is unlike the existing situation where just a few, dominant, unprincipled men, through unconstitutional private associations are manipulating which candidates are on the election ballot. In response to George Washington’s farewell address in which he pointed out this problem, and warned of legislative alterations that would undermine what cannot be directly overthrown, the legislators of his era wrote into election law a “gatekeeper clause”, which revealed the potential “Trojan horse” [private associations].
George Washington clause – § 21 No organization or association of citizens for the election of city [town or village] officers [town committeemen] shall be deemed a political party …
In 1911 New York Election law underwent major “progressive” legislative alterations, and the George Washington, gate keeper clause, Section 21 was struck from election law and Article 2, filled with “legalese”, was inserted to make way for the creation of the de facto town committeemen, who the parties then grafted onto their own private political associations. Thus, our present condition is that these two, primarily private party associations look legal through unconstitutional legislation, which gave these same associations the illusion of power to choose our representatives without our consent. The whole current process is built upon systemic corruption. The only candidates offered for the people to choose from are candidates who are already corrupted, in both parties. The problem to be solved is to replace the private association candidates with true committeemen elected by “We the People” and then abolish the unelected usurpers. This can be achieved by simply applying the law and exposing the “town committeemen” for what they truly are, strawmen!
What is critical to understand is that no legislated statutes parading as law can trump the natural duties inherent in the office of committeemen, none! We can even look to 1909 New York election law to see that the content of the statute did not contain or “provide” for party rules to create committeemen. Committeemen being elected “only” by the people within their election district are answerable only to the people. The natural duty of the committeeman is to fill vacancies in every political subdivision that lies in their election district, and no legislation can ultimately affect that. No legislation can alter or tell committeemen how to perform their Constitutional duty, none! If legislation, statute, or code could, we would not be free men.
Election law Article 2 was carefully crafted through deliberate deployment of legalese to confuse the people, hide the office of “Committeeman,” and hatch the position of "town committeeman", a straw-man, which has been presumed over time to be the true elected “Committeeman”. Article 2 was also written to control the town committeeman strictly by party rules.
The question that’s important to ask is “who does the controlling”? The most visible controlling entity is the “executive committee” or the “county committee,” which are one and the same in usual practice. Their apparent mission has been to control town chairmen. Since the units of representation are broken down into towns, positions therein are already compartmentalized, and that further ensures the executive committee almost never loses control of a county. Furthermore, town chairmen in the counties are appointed; and, therefore if any rebel, they are simply removed.
The Executive Committee is usually made up of four people: (1) chairman (2) vice- chairman (sometimes two or more) (3) secretary, and (4) treasurer. In some counties the chairmen of the several town committees are considered part of the executive committee. But make no mistake about it, the real decision maker for the county is the county chairman, who is submissive to the will of whomever is pulling his or her strings. All these positions are filled by party rule and not law. Each county is different, and some even seem democratic, but the bottom line is that no one becomes a chairman at any level without an “anointing” from above. The most important point about all these county committees is that none is composed of the true “Elected Committeemen”.
The State Committee leaders seem to be elected by the sixty-two (62) county chairman, but the reality is that the “fix is in” on who is a candidate for these positions. On top of which the game is that the controlling powers usually don’t ultimately care which of the candidates win, because all of them will have been “pre-qualified” to do the will of those powers. Again the most important point about all these candidates is that none of them are the true “Elected Committeemen”. The next question is “who controls the state committee”? The answer is the national committee. The last question is “who controls the national committee”? The answer is the elite.
Now Enters the Law through the pretentious authority of legislation crafted by the “progressives”. Election law Sections 2-102 and 2-104 allowed for the creation of town and state committees by corrupted committeemen sometime after 1911, and Section 2-114 provided for the writing of rules for those committees. Section 2-104.3 provided for a town committee to be legally constituted if twenty-five (25) per cent (that’s right) of the committeemen required to be elected in a county have been elected. Section 2-114.2 permitted town committeemen to alter their party rules absent the presence of elected committeemen, when an indefinite quorum was met. Section 2–106.3 made it possible for counties to primary for new town committeemen in odd years. This created the opportunity for the oscillation of power in different county election districts to take place in alternate years, so that there would always be leadership already in place to meet the freshman town committeemen. After all this was achieved, it was now possible for the true “Elected Committeemen” to be phased out and the straw-man, town committeemen phased in to take their place. This exploit was accomplished in part by means of the party operatives taking charge of filling out the appropriate spaces on a candidate’s designating petition and simply replacing the title “Committeeman” with the title “Member of the County Committee”. This whole system was phased in over time, perhaps decades, from county to county until the whole state was void of all truly “Elected Committeemen”, leaving virtually no memory of the experience of the way it was originally.
All this raises the question “why did they have to create such an elaborate scheme; why not just bring the committeemen into captivity through legislation alone”? There are many reasons for this, but the most important one is that legislation created a context that made the subsequent actions of the operatives to subdue the committeeman process and control it seem lawful, while their actions were, in fact, unconstitutional. Thereby followed the disenfranchising of “All the People” of New York without the perpetrators incurring any liability whatsoever, that ended in the effective controlling of every election throughout the state. If the operatives had directly seized and made captive the true “Elected Committeemen” that would have been to easy to see as treason in its time!
WE MUST BE FREE AND INDEPENDENT COMMITTEEMEN
Our Remedy in Law is already there. The people's candidates need only file their designating petitions to become elected committeemen; and, because the current “town committeemen,” and the rules by which they operate, were created under the authority of the true “Elected Committeemen” past, we may simply abolish their rules and dismiss them because “that’s the Law”. Our Constitutions and natural law requires that the people choose their representatives, and no legislative power no matter how it is disguised to seem lawful, has any authority to legislate away, especially to private associations, the people’s authority. “none”! Just like each man or woman’s vote, it belongs to the people, not the government. Equally important, We the People alone are the ones responsible, and moreover have the duty, to oversee the counting of the vote. Certainly the responsibility to count the vote does not lie with some private corporation or machines that can be covertly rigged. So, the beginning of our plan is education and the execution of our plan is enforcement of the law.
How Grassroots can Take Back the Committeemen Seats – When and only when the truth within this book is revealed to the people, and sets fire in their minds, the current facade of “town committeeman” or “member of the county committee” cannot survive. The revolution has reached a tipping point. Considering the events in Washington DC concerning the Deep State it is clear that we are in the midst of “a perfect storm”; and, depending upon the re-educating of We the People our destiny will be determined. The grass roots, liberty groups are organizing in all 3,133 counties across the 50 states and poised for a direction along with the many frustrated “Members of the County Committee” men, who will be willing to receive this peaceful solution to save our Republic and take back We the Peoples’ “reins of power” thereby becoming the true, original committeemen that our founding fathers meant us to be.
Identifying the contradiction The idea of a democrat party and a republican party with different agendas that assert as their main goal a government “by the people” is an oxymoron to the form of government our founders intended. Our founders realized that a Republican Form of Government under Common Law would be the solution to man’s dilemma in his search for a government “deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed”. So they ordained and established a Republic founded under the mind of God and not the mind of men, and included a democratic process for representation. At some point for We the People to completely return to our true roots the Republican and Democrat parties must eventually fuse back again to Jefferson’s Democratic Republican Party a one party system.
And it was in this spirit that the “Elected Committeemen” of both aforesaid parties of We the People of New York State came together in a bipartisan convention adopting the following “just” State and County party rules and we suggest that every state strive for the same goal in order that “man become what he was meant to be, Free and Independent” and not to be controlled by mob rule. We must be free to vote our conscience on behalf of the People within our election district and not the dictatorship rule of an association. Principles must overrule compromise there is no room for bi-partisan bickering in our Republic because legislators can only legislate under Article I Section 8 which leaves nothing open for interpretation or legislation that benefits one group over another.
HISTORY OF THE COMMITTEE OF SAFETY
AND THE ELECTED COMMITTEEMAN
Committees of Safety that morphed into the “Committeeman” in 1789 existed throughout the history of colonial America. Though known by various names; Committees of Protection, Associations, or, as the case in Plymouth Colony, an unnamed civil body politic, and, in Jamestown, simply governing council, they had the characteristic of being a civil government absent a government established by the sovereign.
In the early eighteenth century, Committees of Safety were quite common, especially on the frontiers, where the possibility if Indian attacks were likely. The Committee would appoint watchmen, hog reeves, fence reeves, and, militia officers. These are functions that were taken on by more organized governments, in some towns, though were common through most of the colonies, leading up to the War of Independence.
Committees served, primarily, to fill in gaps that were left by existing colonial and county governments, providing services that were otherwise unavailable.
As tensions grew between the colonists and the Crown government in England, the need for Committees increased, especially in western Massachusetts and South Carolina. After the Massachusetts Government Act (May 20, 1774), which revoked the Massachusetts Charter and replace the locally elected governments with appointments by the King, the farmers in western Massachusetts began forming Committee to assure a continuity of government and to take charge in expelling courts and judges who were not abiding by the original charter, and replacing them with their owns courts, though primarily only for criminal matters.
There were sufficient numbers of Committees in most of the colonies to call for the First Continental Congress, in 1774. These Committees were not subject to Royal governance, because, quite simply, to call for such a Congress would have been a contradiction of their authority granted by the various charters. Subsequently, the Second and Third Continental Congress were called by the Committees, which by this time, had evolved to the point where sufficient numbers of participating Committees established a Provincial Committee of Safety.
Committees of Safety continued to operate as functions of local government throughout the War of Independence, until each state adopted a Constitution, or otherwise revised their form of government, absent any Royal control. Once the Article of Confederation were instituted in 1781.
Cambridge April 29, 1775
This may certify that the bearer, Mr. Paul Revere is messenger to the Committee of Safety and that all dispatch and assistance be given him in Instances that the business of the Colony may be facilitated
Jos. Warren, Chair.
Committees of Safety existed prior to 1692 and were called by various names. The Committee which was created, in that year, in New York is significant in that it was created by the militia. The colonists were dissatisfied with the government of the Crown headed by Governor Sir Edmund Andros. Recognizing that the military (militia) authority must always be subordinate to the civil authority, and having serious concern over the abusive authority imposed by Andros, the militia of New York created their own civil authority in the form of the Committee of Safety.
Representation on the Committee was based upon two delegates being selected by the citizenry to represent each community. The delegates gathered and exercised their authority by, eventually, imprisoning Governor Andros for a period of one year.
On and off, many communities, colonies and provinces exercised their right of "self-governance" by establishing Committees as the need arose. The practice became even more common after the French and Indian Wars of 1756-1758. The Crown had imposed a number of new taxes on the colonies. It was felt that since the French and Indian Wars were in defense of the colonies, the burden of the enormous expense should be borne by the colonists. Of course, few colonists agreed.
As the taxes were increased (even though the colonies would never be able to pay the costs and interest), the demand by the colonists for the "rights of Englishmen" were raised. The Parliament had virtually no direct representation from the colonies, although there were some members of the House of Commons who were sympathetic with the colonies.
Each effort by the Crown to raise taxes resulted in the colonies refusing to purchase the goods taxed to raise the revenue. This caused the Crown to impose even more taxes, or replace those that had failed to return the revenue.
Finally, the Coercive Acts of 1774 caused sufficient concern in the colonies to prompt action. Those communities that had formed Committees sent delegates to the colony or province level in order to respond to the call from the Boston Committee for a Continental Congress. In September, 1774, nine colonies responded to the call and met in Philadelphia to join in actions to counter the increasing imposition of arbitrary control by Britain.
Although during the course of colonial history many Committees of Safety were formed and operated under British government, frequently their actions were outside of the authority granted. They frequently co-existed alongside the "authorized" government of the Crown, creating a parallel government which was the direct representation of the people as opposed to the legitimate government of the Crown.
These "parallel" governments formed the nexus that would come together again in June, 1776, comprised of representatives of all thirteen colonies, to form the Second Continental Congress. The outcome of this second congress was the Declaration of Independence.
The Committee of Safety Concept
"Resolved unanimously, As our opposition to the settled plan of the British administration to enslave America will be strengthened by a union of all ranks of men in this province, we do most earnestly recommend that all former differences about religion or politics, and all private animosities and quarrels of every kind, from henceforth cease and be forever buried in oblivion; and we entreat, we conjure every man by his duty to God, his country, and his posterity, cordially to unite in defense of our common rights and liberties." - Resolution of the Maryland Deputies, December 12, 1774.
The concept of committees of safety was the forerunner of that principle of government implemented by the states and the federal government. Each committee would delegate its representatives to go to the next higher level, and carry with it the will of the people. Within each group there were chairmen selected to act as conciliator to the delegation. His purpose was not to rule, dictate or control the meetings, with the exception of providing order and purpose. Most often, he may have been denied the right to vote to compensate for what additional power he might have as chairman. In Boston, for example, a rather meek and mild Doctor John Warren was chairman of the Boston Committee of Safety. He provided order at the meetings, and otherwise carried out his duties as the administrator of the will of the people.
Since those times, we have subordinated our individual thought process to one which might be best described as "corporate mentality", where the chairman is usually chief executive officer (CEO) and wields an unnatural authority. His word is assumed "law", and until he is replaced, he is the power.
What has to be understood if the concept of Committee of Safety becomes a tool in our efforts to return to constitutional government, is that the authority of the people be recognized above all else. All "enactments" should come from that source, and finally be approved by that source. Any executive committee actions should be for their ministerial nature, only. The corporate pyramid must be turned over and recognized in its proper light that the people are at the top, just under God. Next the committee of safety, and its various sub-committees, which function as the source defined by interest, to generate "enactments". Finally the delegates, chairmen, and executive committee whose only purpose is to facilitate the orderly determination of the will of the people, and provide the means to implement that will.
The Committee of Safety concept, in order to operate in a manner which is suggested by history, must operate as committees and the Committee of the Whole. It must never operate as a "star chamber" or an executive authority under the current concept. It must never operate as a corporation, for a corporate interest is not the same as the People. The goal that is sought to be achieved is that the will of the people be carried out by those who have sought to assist in that administration, not by those who seek to control that will.
The Albany Committee was established prior to the First Continental Congress. This General Committee was executed in 1775. It was signed by all members of the committee at the time. It might provide us an understanding of the necessity for establishing a committee of like-minded people for the purpose of furthering the discussion of solutions to the problem. The original Albany version:
A General Committee agreed to and subscribed by the members of the several committees of the city and county of Albany. Persuaded that the salvation of the Rights and Liberties of America depends upon God and on the firm union of its inhabitants, in a vigorous prosecution of the measures necessary for its Safety; and convinced of the necessity of preventing the anarchy and confusion, which attend a dissolution of the powers of government
WE the Freemen, Freeholders and inhabitants of the City and County of Albany being greatly alarmed at the avowed design of the ministry, to raise a revenue in America; and shocked by the bloody scene now acting in the Massachusetts Bay. Do in the most solemn manner resolve never to become Slaves; and do associate under all the Ties of Religion, Honour, and Love to our Country, to adopt and endeavor to carry into execution whatever measures may be recommended by the Continental Congress, or resolved upon by our Provincial Convention for the purpose of preserving our Constitution, and opposing the Execution of the several Arbitrary and oppressive Acts of the British Parliament until a Reconciliation between Great Britain and America on Constitutional Principles (which we most ardently desire) can be obtained; And that we will in all things follow the Advice of our General Committee respecting the purpose aforesaid, the preservation of Peace and good Order and the safety if Individuals and private Property.
Disasters - Events such as Katrina, as well as the possibility of man caused disasters, are potential threats to the security, safety, and well-being of our families. If a true Committee existed in your community and there was some sort of event that affected food supply, utilities, water, or otherwise threatened your safety, we have in place, through the Committee, a cooperative with which to share needed resources. Though short lived in Plymouth Colony and Jamestown, this "cooperative" served quite well for survival in a hostile land, for the first few years. It also allowed the sharing of crops in the frontier towns and agricultural communities, in later colonial times, when Indian raids, or weather, destroyed crops, which would leave those affected short of food, had their neighbors (fellow Committee members) not shared with them what food was available.
Education - One of the most important tools utilized by those who have sought to take our freedoms and our country from us is the control of public education. By these means they have been able to remove aspects of our history which would have enabled us to both perceive and deal with the problems of today long before now.
Jefferson, Adams, Washington, Henry and the rest of those who gave us the nation we seek to restore today were well established in their respective communities, and recognized by their efforts to be men of sincerity. Their efforts extended, in most cases, over many years of guidance to their neighbors. The respect that was earned by these efforts, and their willingness to represent the will of the people, propelled them into the delegations which formulated the course that the colonies would pursue.
We have an opportunity to return to Constitutional government, and send Committeemen into the community to encourage the People to take control of our children’s education in replace of the destructive progressive education that the federal government forces upon our children today and encourage the People themselves to take courses that will prepare them to take control of their own destiny and our out of control governments. see: www.nationallibertyalliance.org and click on FREE COURSES.
In order to understand the difference between what should be the true elected committeemen that should arise in our Republic within the political parties, and what we now have from the private political associations known as Democrats and Republicans, which have covertly overtaken control of the committeemen process, it is extremely important to review the history and purpose of the committeemen. Everybody knows that our party system is dysfunctional, clearly proven by the deceitful candidates we are left with to choose from as our representatives. Some people think we don’t have a choice and we must live with the system as it is, but that simply is not true. The underlying problem is a certain, systematic, identifiable corruption, which our founders addressed by replacing all committeeman every two years throughout the state, thereby flushing out political corruption.
Our goal is simply to reinstate the peoples "elected consentors" envisioned by our founding fathers, the committeemen are those consentors. The argument between the parties are all about controlling the behavior of the people, when will we tire from such despicable acts, when will we see that we lay wait for our own blood, for our own souls? If we just stop trying to control each other, we would discover the liberty of our fathers.
For the past 70 years, or so, the political process has been hijacked by an elite few who have succeeded in creating a dysfunctional government, hell bent on the annihilation of our Republic, through division, through indulgence, through anger and hatred, in short through parties.
To exercise the political process is to control our servant government, whereas the exercising of politics is intended for the controlling of people, and is repugnant to liberty. The enemy of liberty by its politics, has all but destroyed our political process, and expunged the elected committeeman. Today, by God's mercy we have the opportunity and a duty to ourselves and our posterity, to restore the process, and resurrect the elected committeeman, for liberty!
Our Duty: The committeeman is the only elected position that is unpaid, it is the seat from which the people exercise their power, and who's duty is to:
- Fill political vacancies with statesmen that know the law of the land, and are minded to observe it.
- Monitor and report the "hand" counting of the vote in public for both the primary and general elections.
- Monitor and report on elected individuals to insure they don't overstep their authority.
- Recall elected servants that violate their oaths.
- Solve problems with bureaucrats reported by people from our election district.
- Visit schools to initiate programs educating our children and college students in political science, judicial processes and ethics; alongside the sciences and mathematics.
- Educate and encourage a sense of duty among our constituents.
Critical Mind Set
- Don't ask "what are the limits of our power"? Liberty knows no limit, we simply do what is honest and expedient, the people need "no permission" to act, yes we can make it up as we go and as we see fit, that's the prerogative of a king.
- We the People ordained and established this constitution "for" the united states, we are the potter and they are the clay, "hath not the potter power over the clay"?
- Legislators are authorized under the Constitution, ordained by the people, to write statutes and codes, enforced as law, to control the behavior of bureaucrats, municipalities, government agencies, elected officials, interstate commerce, but not the people, who's rights are unalienable and cannot be legislated.
- We have been elected to choose honest candidates for office who's only agenda is the furtherance of liberty, security of our boarders, security through empowerment, economic expansion and the protection of the same, without interference.
- While in office forget republican or democrat, we are not there to manipulate people by promoting agendas but by promoting liberty.
- The "office" of committeeman is the most powerful office in the land, exercise that power wisely, and we will have wise government, a wise government is a constitutional one.
Bi-Partisanship - Once republicans and democrats realize our constitution does not authorize congress to legislate behavior, politics will finally out grow its pathetic effectiveness. And, if we follow Thomas Jefferson's advice of "peace, commerce, and honest friendship with all nations - entangling alliances with none", America's greatest days would lie ahead.
Two major parties control the political process, if we are going to reinstate the Republic it is absolutely critical that parties can work together. Except when choosing candidates, the state committee should meet bi-partisan to discuss solutions to our political problems; this will solidify the people's aspiration for better government, and reinforce the fear of recall in the minds of our servant government.
The Plan To Take back Control of the Parties
- The Unified Common Law Grand Jury will or already has filed a Federal Lawsuit to enforce the Law and bring back the elected “Committeeman”. Find out more concerning the status of this lawsuit at www.nationallibertyalliance.org/
- Enlighten liberty groups in all 3133 United States counties to the realities of the true, elected committeemen process. Send them to www.nationallibertyalliance.org/ to take the free courses.
- One person must take on the responsibility to find at least three others in their county to do the same.
- Educate, Communicate and Organize at www.nationallibertyalliance.org/
- Each county shall have the mission of finding at least four to six people to run for Committeeman in both parties. The reason for choosing four people per county, per party, is because that is the minimum number of "town" committeemen presently appointed to harness and control a county. Therefore, we should strive to match that number. However, we can accomplish our objectives with a lesser number if we need to.
- We need to try and get at least one committeeman per party, per county. If we do not succeed at that, then, for the short term, that county will simply and lawfully be ruled by people from an adjoining county through appointments of local unelected committee members who will be monitored and educated to take control of their own county business.
- All existing “members of the county committee” should be welcomed and encouraged to take the free courses for “Committeeman” at www.nationallibertyalliance.org/.
- The leadership in each county will have the responsibility of making sure every candidate understands our plan and the process to become a committeeman.
- Visiting and communicating through our web site www.nationallibertyalliance.org/ is imperative so that you can understand (1) the law, (2) how to become a committeeman (3) the plan to reconstitute the committeeman, and (4) how we will bring the existing party positions back under the control of “We the people”.
- Attend our Monday night teleconference go to www.nationallibertyalliance.org/mondaycall for details to join us.
Once in Power
- A statewide orientation meeting shall be convened in the State Capital after the election.
- The elected committee will need to call for a county wide meeting with all town committeemen. This resurrected committee of the people will proceed to dismiss all Article 2 created executive committees and will initiate new party rules. Members of the county committee will be notified that there has been a change of power and will be invited to attend our meetings under Article 2 status until the next election takes place.
- We will need to fill vacant committeemen positions and we should focus in on filling them with liberty minded people first. We should remember that many of the town committeemen have been deceived, and when they understand what’s been going on, they will want to join us, so we must educate them, they will become a huge asset to us.
- Let everyone know that it will not be business as usual and that many of the old ways, such as party favors and other criminal activities will no longer be entertained; and, if found out, a criminal complaint will be filed with the Sheriff for prosecution.
- Free courses for the general public are available at www.nationallibertyalliance.org
Some of the Constitutional restorations we want to start working on statewide, which are achievable in the first couple of years, if people in both parties are determined to save our Republic, are the following:
- Legislative clarification on changing or joining a party, which should be easy and in short time.
- Legislative striking of repugnant election laws.
- Legislative reinstatement of the 1909 George Washington, gate keeper clause Section 21, outlawing private associations from being deemed a political party.
- Legislation to require the ballot process at the primary election for committeeman, even if (s)he is running unopposed.
- A return to many of the NY 1909 election laws that were struck.
- Legislation to require hand counting of the vote, in public, presided over by the committeemen as prescribed in 1909 election law.
- Legislation requiring the funding of sheriffs to come directly, and only from the county, or from the state.
- A resolution affirming the sovereignty of the people and [Your] state.
