So, What’s With the Name?

I am seeking redress for grievances brought upon the people of the United States of America, and the people throughout the world harmed by the wars of aggression launched by the present government of the United States of America. I am seeking redress not through petition to that government, which has violated constitutional law and therefore has become illegitimate, and is no longer to be relied upon to govern the people of this nation. I am seeking redress directly from the people of the United States of America, the people for which the United States Constitution was originally crafted to protect from many of these very grievances. I am seeking redress brought about through real changes made within our nation to replace our current corrupt and unconstitutional system. It is up to us, the people of the United States of America, to put a stop to the wars of aggression our unlawful government has launched in our name. It is up to us, the people of the United States of America, to restore our freedoms from this over-reaching government. It is up to us, the people of the United States of America, to end our support for the overly powerful and influential corporations that ultimately control the current government of this nation. It is up to us, the people of the United States of America, to send a message of peace and amendment to the people we have harmed throughout the world with our wars of aggression, both by bringing home our military, and withdrawing support for proxy armies set up to initiate chaos within these countries in effort to overthrow their governments.  It is up to us, the people of the United States of America, to restore compassion, sense of community, and a willingness to assist each other and the people around the world harmed by our wars of aggression.  It is up to us, the people of the United States of America, to stand together and redress this situation we, and the world, find ourselves in.

I am offering redress through my own service to my community and to the people of the United States of America.  I am seeking ideas and solutions for ways to redress these grievances brought upon the people of the United States of America, and the people throughout the world we have allowed these grievances to fall upon by enabling our current, illegitimate government the freedom to wage these wars. I am seeking a re-uniting of the people of the United States of America for the redress of these grievances.

  1. Katie: As a veteran of the American War in Vietnam and as a co-founder of Veterans For Peace, I salute your efforts and your statement. We must wrest this country’s control from the militaristic corporations who currently control it. We must show our fellow citizens that non-violent direct action is the path to that liberation. I am with you all the way. Best, Doug Rawlings
