To the Tea Party:
All Americans in favor of Government Change:
It’s time to take a well-rounded and serious approach to reigning in the usurpations of government and restoring freedom back to the people and the states.
President Obama is determined to undermine, ridicule, and ultimately destroy the Republican Party and those named above who are concerned for the future of America.
I am submitting for your consideration a proposal that I believe should be initiated by the Congress, employed and included into the Republican platform, and serve as the basis for a formal petition to be submitted to a rational and intelligent American voter for their support.
I am not seeking accolades or praise, and no one needs my approval to adapt or promote the elements of this petition for approval by the majority of Americans. We must take back our government and its powers that are being usurped by the Federal government. The time is upon us and we cannot afford to wait any longer.
So please, receive this as a tool, a well designed plan, for the successful campaigns of Congressional and Senatorial candidates, among others. The Democrats will not support these principles and arguments, and the Republicans should stand out like a light in a dark nation and as the voice of the people and the Party for all Americans, of every race and creed.
My prayer is that the Conservative, Bible believing Christian, will gain the majority in the Senate and retain the house to the chagrin of our president and his administration. And, that our future president will outshine any Democratic challenger in 2016.
Sincerely, 29 S Andrews Ave

PETITION TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES FOR REDRESS
PETITIONER/SPONSOR – Rev Anthony Mucciolo
WE THE UNDERSIGNED, lawfully registered voters residing in ______________________________ County, in the Commonwealth/State of _________________________________ do, with this Petition, request and direct the members of Congress to address the abuses and usurpations imposed upon the people of these United States. This administration, members of the Democratic Party in Congress, and certain other members of the Republican Party, have given cause for us citizens to lose confidence in their willingness, ability, and trustworthiness, to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States and the Rights inherent in a free people. While it is not appropriate to denigrate any one’s reputation or integrity, we must call to attention certain acts that have raised the levels of fear and anxiety among the people of these United States. Through the use of executive orders, executive privilege, outright refusal to deliver documents requested by our representatives in Congress, documents that may or may not be a cause for impeachment or other due process of law, have given us due cause to be suspicious and wary of its ultimate intentions and goals, and to be fearful that the direction in which our country appears to be heading if these usurpations continue, will reduce us to a nation under tyrannical rule. Therefore it is our right, our duty and our sincere purpose to demand that our Congressional leadership provide for and establish new safeguards for our security and economic stability.
Let it be known and understood that We the People of these United States hold fast to the belief that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable Rights, among which is the right to live in a secure, peaceable and harmonious environment with our fellow man of all colors, races, and creeds, and of every degree of wealth and success or lack thereof; to live as a free people enjoying the freedoms purchased by the blood of many heroes of liberty, and the right to pursue those ideals and goals that we fully expect will bring us happiness.
We also believe that in order to secure these rights, our form of government must be subject to the majority will of the people as delivered to our duly elected Congressmen and Senators; and as a consequence of receiving their just powers from the consent of the governed, they owe their allegiance and fidelity to the people and to those representing us at the state level, regardless of whether they are representatives of the Democratic, Republican, or other political Party.
Wherefore, we submit the following: the federal government was instituted by men and the states with “vested” powers, creating a type of fiduciary responsibility to the people and the states. It is our understanding that a fiduciary is responsible to those principals, from whom it has been entrusted with such powers, to act on their behalf with proficiency and clarity in all matters, maintain records of conduct demonstrating compliance with the terms and conditions stipulated in its vested powers and, when called upon to give an account of its activities and decisions, must be found to have exercised competence, transparency, and trustworthiness. Wherefore we assert that the United States government is bound by its fiduciary obligations to give a truthful, detailed account of its actions, policy decisions, and financial records of income and expenditures to the representatives of Congress who have oversight of this segment of the fiduciary trust. Furthermore, they must be vigilant with the people’s money, which includes remaining within an established budget created on behalf of the trust. A fiduciary is also compelled by virtue of this trust, to reveal the impact their decisions had, and will have, on any and all investments that may come into question. The Federal Government, as part of its fiduciary responsibility to the states, and for the betterment and economic success of the people are compelled by law to exercise competence and thriftiness with these funds (taxes) committed to its trust, in order to pay the legitimate Debts of the United States, and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the governed;
That under no circumstance did the Founding Fathers envision giving the Federal Government, acting in a fiduciary capacity, the right, privilege, or consent to spend tax revenues as it predisposes without the consent of the states; nor did they entrust these revenues to the government to support foreign nations, their economies and militaries before insuring that all the needs of our own nation are duly provided for; and that all profits, royalties, and earnings from investment dollars must be distributed to the people in the form of lower taxes, tax credits, bonus checks, or other means to advance the well-being of the states, rather than unjustly enriching the federal government.
Hence, the people demand the federal government create a budget that will permit it to stay within its means, and restore and maintain the economic solvency of the people; That as a consequence of mismanagement, bureaucratic statutes, and outrageous spending policies, we have been caused unnecessary harm and suffering; that our government has, as a result of the imposition of unjust laws, rules, and oppressive regulations, obtrusive oversight and control over major, and even the most trivial aspects of our lives has gathered to itself certain powers by force, usurpation of powers inherent within a free people, and violated its fiduciary responsibilities to the states for its own aggrandizement; and to prove this, we submit these facts:
Through the use of executive orders, and with the deliberate intention of bypassing Republican members of Congress, they have overtly engaged in the unconstitutional act of refusing to regard, consider, and/or to deliberately deny the voice of the governed to be represented by their elected members within the Republican Party; in so doing, we have been denied our Constitutional right to be heard, express our agreement with, or opposition to, one or several laws, rules and bureaucratic regulations; and with the cooperation, assent, and acquiescence of the Senate and the approval of many in the Congress they have conspired to push through numerous laws and regulations causing insufferable economic stress, fear of terrorist attacks, and avoidable grief to American citizens. These acts overtly violate their fiduciary status and representation of the people;
In the course of these actions, contrary to the will of the majority, and contrary to the design and structure of the Constitution, they passed the Affordable Care Act, a law that serves to aggrandize a President, increase the national debt, cripple the economy of the United States, negatively impact the availability and sustainability of employment, diminish our financial credit and international standing, and presents a weakened defensive posture to the enemies of these United States;
Officials of the Federal government have engaged in the act of providing assault and military style weapons of force to drug cartels in Mexico and to other nations who have used these same weapons to kill many of our own citizens and military personnel both at home and abroad; to degrade their actions even further, and with executive privilege, they have refused to reveal the records of all activity involving these violations of public trust;
They have deliberately ignored the pleadings of our citizens and state officials to secure our borders, thus carelessly leaving our States vulnerable and exposed to the potential dangers of invasion and/or infiltration of terrorists and illegal immigrants; and to magnify their opposition to pursuing these ends, they have brought suit in federal court against the bordering states for the sole purpose of preventing their militias and police from safeguarding the land and citizens of these several states, causing undue dread and anxiety, and have by these acts made themselves culpable in the murder of border patrol agents and civilians;
To further add to these reckless and injurious directives, the President issued an executive order prohibiting our federal and state enforcement agents, employed and trained for such purposes, to take any action to defend our borders, prevent illegal entry into the U.S. of non-registered immigrants, arrest and detain those who crossed the border illegally, and thus forbidding these agents to fulfill their obligations and sworn duties of service to the people of the United States;
This administration, with the consent of members of Congress, unlawfully infringed upon the rights of states to supervise their elections, refused to arrest those who openly intimidated voters, enjoined themselves with other nations to encourage foreign participation in supervising and/or affecting the outcome of our national elections, particularly those who are alien to, and non-supportive of our Constitution which is inconsistent with, and contrary to, the sovereignty of these United States;
In defiance of the outcries of a majority of American voters, and contrary to the First Amendment, they passed laws opposing the free exercise of religion, particularly certain Christian sects, traditions, and creeds, by limiting, constraining, and/or refusing to permit the free practice, and expression of their faiths, forbidding the display of symbols of their faith, such as crosses, Christmas scenes, the Ten Commandments, etc., and/or the posting of other art and symbolisms representative of these religions and beliefs; To further extend their unconstitutional controls over religion they permitted the arrest of citizens who held Bible studies in the privacy of their own homes, using undue force and fear tactics to compel them to apply for expensive civil permits; notwithstanding, it is our position the Federal and State governments were not vested with the right to infringe upon, establish, or deny the free exercise and propagation of religions. Atheism and Humanism, by virtue of their mention of, and dogmatic positions about, the existence of God, and their aggressive posture in promoting their beliefs, are well within the definitions of a religious body and must be included for all intents and purposes as religions; for their opposition to, and/or their expressions are consistent with the language of many other religious groups both pro and against a definitive characterization of God, and should neither be accepted or rejected by government so as to encourage them to make any law regarding the practice of any religion whatsoever, for in doing so is a clear violation of the First amendment;
They have also usurped the freewill and rights of parents and legal guardians of children by imposing sexually explicit education in the elementary schools deliberately turning a deaf ear to our cries for redress;
They have engaged in rhetoric and actions resulting in disuniting our country and causing divisions among the people according to economic status, class, and racial segregations which present grave and serious consequences to the person and security of a free people. And many other such things have they done to the detriment and insecurity of the governed, which is their first obligation.
Therefore, we assert the following: it is in the best interests of the people of the United States to restrict the powers of the federal government as named in the Constitution of the United States at its inception, limiting it to fulfill and execute those powers entrusted to it by the states, but with a further restriction in demanding that its decisions and actions are consistent with, and are contained in the rules of law pertaining to the establishment, maintenance and execution of a fiduciary trust with the American people and the several states, as aforementioned. Notwithstanding, it is assumed that some things may, of necessity, be better kept secret, however, these secrets must be transmitted to a select few, representative of a wide geographical venue, thus keeping the Congress and the Governors of the states abreast of issues that, of necessity, must be addressed and approved by the Congress, such as the likelihood of war. These steps are necessary for the Congress to act responsibly, while continuing to uphold its allegiance to the citizenry by whom all government authority is granted.
For the clear and distinct purpose of restoring the greater authority and control of the Central government to the people and the states, and to assure that the will of the people is duly represented, we require the following issues be addressed, reviewed and approved, namely:
That all laws, executive orders, and regulations passed within these last few years, relative to the issues stated above, be set aside and defunded by the Congress, until they are openly presented to the legitimate electorate of these United States, and their representatives regardless of Party affiliation, and are given the opportunity to express their agreement or disagreement by casting their vote for or against the measures;
To assure that the will of the true majority is represented, all legitimate voters must show some form of identification showing their name and address to prove they have the Constitutional right to vote within the district they are attempting to cast their vote. In the event they have no ID, they may cast their vote, but they must leave their name and address with the election official who will appoint one Republican and one Democrat and charge them with the responsibility of validating the vote in the presence of each other.
All elected representatives, after careful and accurate count of all votes, will present the majority vote generated within their districts to the floor of the full Congress of the United States, and cast the vote representative of the will of the majority whether such vote meets their personal approval or not.
The majority vote of all Congressional districts within one’s state shall be calculated and presented to the Senators of each state who will grant one vote to each district, and after a careful and accurate tabulation of the majority votes of all districts, the Senators will in turn express the will of the majority of their state by casting the vote representative of the majority of districts whether it meets their personal approval or not;
The majority votes tabulated by both houses of Congress and approved as being the will of the people will be sent to the President of the United States for his signature, who, being the leader and spokesperson for a free people, and subject to the will of the governed, shall set aside his right to veto any bill that represents the full voice and will of the people; and will sign the bill into law whether it meets his personal approval or conscience and whether or not he personally agrees with the outcome.
We believe the appointment of justices creates a joinder of two branches of government, the judicial and executive branches, and in so doing diminishes the role and powers of the justice in that he/she will not be able to vote according to the precepts of the Constitution in ALL matters of judgment. Therefore, we believe the integrity of the Judicial branch should stand or fall on its own merits, and not with the pressure or intimidation of the executive branch. Therefore, we ask the Congress of the United States to review this issue and, if required by constitutional convention, petition for such to be convened for the purpose of establishing term limits for justices and allow for their reelections by the governed.
With the accord of the representatives of each state, and its governors, the transparent government of the people, by the people, and for the people, will be restored, government’s fiduciary role will be reestablished and reconfirmed, and the people will begin the long and arduous task of restoring the confidence in our government, which in turn will begin to regenerate our economy and strengthen our national security status.
