This is a question we get asked a lot. What’s the plan? Where do we go from here? What can we do? We hear these questions more frequently with each passing day. There is a short answer. If like me you prefer to avoid a violent revolution, the only other way that I know of to change a government where there is a complete lack of constitutional authority is to change the minds of the voters. We need to convince enough of them that the current system does not represent their best interests. How we accomplish that task will take a great deal more thought.
There are those who are still hopeful that we can get redress of our grievances through the courts. I am not one of them. At least not here in New Jersey. The courts have consistently shown their reluctance to uphold either the spirit or the letter of the Constitution. We are supposed to believe that they understand the meaning of those precious documents better than we do. This attitude is not only arrogant, it is patently ridiculous. How difficult is it to understand that the Constitution and Bill of Rights were specifically written to protect a free and independent people FROM their government “officials”? It is only those who are on the wrong side of the gavel who can “infringe” upon the rights of the people, and only for as long as we allow them to do so.
We all like “short-cuts”. When available and if they work, they help us get to where we are going faster. I am no different. If I see a short-cut that looks promising, I am willing to give it a try. However, there is often a fine line between taking a short-cut and winding up wandering around in circles. If you don’t learn the difference, you will wind up wasting a lot of valuable time, effort and resources. Thought without action is useless, but action without thought is usually “random” and “meaningless”.
So, let’s put our heads together for a moment. Like the members of so many other movements, we have the usual tendency to speak inside an echo chamber. I am doing that now. We spend way too much time “preaching to the choir” and/or “arguing with the Devil”. Although there are times when both are appropriate, it is the people in the MIDDLE whom we eventually have to reach. Why? Because we need their votes. If the courts are deaf (or worse), and the legislature is more interested in pandering than in governing (or worse), and the executive branch is unwilling or unable to exercise control over the other two branches (or worse), than our only option is to remove them all from office and replace them with “we the people”. That WILL NOT HAPPEN if all we ever do is antagonize the other side and are seen as “shrill” (or MUCH worse).
The NJ2AS is in the process of sponsoring a series of Home & Personal Security Seminars across New Jersey. I have been questioned about this. Shouldn’t we be staging rallies? Why aren’t we going to Trenton? Why aren’t we sponsoring litigation to challenge the courts? The answer is simple, we have, we are, and we will. However, if those actions haven’t produced the results we are seeking so far, perhaps we need to think a little harder. Maybe the seminars are not the answer. They will provide us with an excellent opportunity to show the voting public that we DO care about their safety and the safety of their family. The seminars will also give the public the opportunity to see US in an entirely different light from what they see and hear in the Main Stream Media. But let’s hear YOUR ideas.
That is what this article is all about. If you want change, MAKE changes. Share your ideas. Come up with ways to influence the voting public and share them with whomever you feel will do the best job of executing them. There has been too much waiting around for somebody ELSE to do something. We are FREE and INDEPENDENT AMERICANS. Each of us is capable of operating at a much higher level of competency if only we are willing to exercise that underused “muscle” between our ears (otherwise known as THINKING). Just as the government of the USA is supposed to consist OF the people, BY the people, FOR the people – the NJ2AS must rely upon the combined effort of its members in order to succeed. No one wants the success of this Society to be independent from the abilities and actions of any ONE individual MORE than I do. To paraphrase Grig from “The Last StarFighter” – “It is an INCREDIBLE battle against IMPOSSIBLE odds”. Frankly it is way too big a job for any one individual or even a small group of leaders.
Alone, the leaders of the NJ2AS can only do so much, with your help, we can WIN! Email your idea to email@example.com and give us some time to evaluate and prioritize them. In FACT, we could use some interested individuals to help us with that task. If you are interested, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
