On December 6, 2011, a day that will live in infamy, the treasonous jackals of the United States Senate declared war on the American people by approving S1867, the Defense Authorization Act, which authorizes the military to indefinitely suspend the Habeas Corpus rights of Americans, and essentially repeals the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878. On this date, the United States of America ceased to exist.
Last week we convened an emergency teleconference with Occupy Site Mayors representing 57 occupied cities in the USA. Our decision follows.
Barack Obama cannot be trusted to veto S1867. He has been corrupted by the Supreme Court’s Citizen’s United Decision. We must begin what Al Gore should have started when GW Bush stole the 2000 election in Florida. We must begin what John Kerry should have started when GW Bush stole the 2004 election in Ohio. We must start a new Government in Exile.
We cannot protest for power. We cannot petition for power. We cannot beg for power. Power belongs to those who can take it. For every member of the Senate, we will appoint our own interim senators. For every member of the House of Representatives, we will appoint our own interim representatives. For every member of the Supreme Court, we will appoint our own interim judges. After we get organized, we will invite all Americans to vote in a general election for each position, including my Presidential seat, through an Internet website.
We understand that people living in the South, Central States, and West Coast don’t trust East Coasters. So we will locate our capital in Lebanon, Kansas, the geographic center of the contiguous 48 states. Then we will start legislating. Democracy works from the bottom up. If our recommendations are good for the people, they will follow us. Washington DC will become superfluous. We will cut Washington DC off from the bow of our ship, like a snagged anchor, and let it sink to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
