#oas2014 Petition congress for a “Redress of Grievances”

— Minuteman (@call2action2014) March 23, 2014

It is your right, it is your duty, and the time to take Action is NOW! Your Country needs you and millions of American’s to take a STAND, for our Constitution, for our Liberties and for what is right and just. Your help is urgently needed to petition Congress for a Redress of Grievances as outlined in our Constitution’s First Amendment rights.“…Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.” ~Ronald Reagan

U.S. Constitution – Amendment 1Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.“to Petition the Government for a Redress of Grievances” means the People, with evidence that the government is abusing its constitutionally limited power, have the Right to submit a Petition for a Redress (remedy) of the constitutional wrongdoing, that government has an obligation to honestly respond to the People’s Petition.

Operation American Spring

Subject: OAS Update 22
Source: COL Harry Riley (USA RET)
Date: 3/18/2014

Operation American Spring (OAS) Status: Our grass-roots efforts are growing exponentially.  Radio is now coming to us…we no longer have to seek exposure on the airways.  Major stations are now contacting our Public Relations Team (Rose) asking for an OAS person to be on their show.  Today we were on The Bill Martinez Live show.  A syndicated, nationwide radio with over 250 stations broadcasting his show……so. the exposure is becoming an avalanche…OAS now has several men and women that are on radio shows, writing press releases, plus all of you doing what you are doing in support of our mission. God is good and He is the wind behind our grass-roots mission…we just have to believe in our honorable, noble effort.

State Operation Center (SOC) State leaders should have already contacted Don Johnson, SOC Coordinator. If not, you can reach Don at . If your State does not have an active leader, then you must step up, contact Don. Don’t wait, we can no longer have an attitude of “let someone else do it”.  The grave threat to our nation demands we all step forward and do something.

Opposition: Make no mistake, we are being attacked by those of greed, power-hungry, socialist, et al., but we keep on keeping on.  Don’t be misled by rumors, false accusations trying to undermine us as to our direction.  We are making our demands, grievances, and gathering in a constitutional fashion, which we will share with all of OAS soon…everything is in accordance with our constitution.  Our mission is peaceful, unarmed, non-violent, obeying lawful rules.  Our best message, protection, security will be the millions of patriots that have each other backs.  Be there with us…….we have no choice, darkness is descending, and “we the people” must be the light under God’s grace.

Familial and Societal Progress and Liberty will result when the majority of members or Citizens conduct their affairs and relationships with Charity and Respect for the Sovereignty of others. Any time the principles of Life, Agency and Stewardship are violated there will be conflicts that impede the Progress and Liberty of all. This is the system of Progress and Liberty that we have been given by God. Political Agendas and Solutions that violate the principles governing the system will distort the intended results and create failures. The Principles we must obey are defined following.

Life is the Gift that God has given us that we might have an opportunity for Agency and Stewardship. Life is the time to use our Intelligence and Skill Sets to Progress, with Charity and Respect to a State of Liberty.

Agency is a God given responsibility and right to make choices. Every situation before you requires you to act or to not act. Either course is in fact a choice and you alone are responsible for the consequences of the choice you make. You alone are responsible for the stewardship over your life.

Stewardship is the God given responsibility and right to be in charge of your life and the results it produces. You cannot pass that mantle of responsibility and right to others. Your life is yours to do with as you will. You may use it to progress in Intelligence, Skill, Wisdom,  Charity and Self-discipline, or to regress into weakness and poverty of Substance and Spirit.

Progress is the God given responsibility and right to achieve your highest potential with the Intelligence and Skills which you were given to start your life. From that base you alone are responsible for their development and the acquisition of other Talents. Your progress is measured by what you return on your own capital base of Intelligence and Skill Sets.

Liberty is the God given promise that when you appropriately exercise your Agency and Stewardship over your life, with Charity and Respect toward the sovereignty of others, you will be given the opportunity to Progress to your highest potential in a State of Freedom, regardless of the acts of others in this World or the next.

Charity is the unqualified love that Christ demonstrated for the people and members of the early Church. Paul described it this way,

New Testament | 1 Corinthians 13:4–8) 4 aCharity bsuffereth long, and is ckind; charity denvieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up, 5 Doth not behave itself aunseemly, seeketh not her bown, is not easily cprovoked, thinketh no evil; 6 Rejoiceth not in ainiquity, but rejoiceth in the btruth; 7 Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things. 8 Charity never afaileth:

Respect is the God given responsibility to acknowledge the right of Life, Agency, Stewardship, Progress and Liberty of others. To do so requires the exercise of Charity in its fullest sense.

The Individuals, Families and Societies that understand and obey these Principles will achieve their highest potential in Progress and Liberty. They will also ensure the maximum participation in development possible of their Family Members and Citizens.

Respectfully, Gunny Barton, Ret.

Americans put forth their vision of respect for self government and individual sovereignty with the unanimous Declaration of 1776. The Declaration of Independence on July 4th 1776 declares the necessity of mutual respect for the natural and God given rights of men. It enumerates the rights of individual life, liberty, property, sovereignty, stewardship for happiness and progression either directly or by implication. As such, the unanimous Declaration establishes the supremacy of self government with respect for rights over rule by man made laws. The rule of law in this republic is governed by the higher principles of the unanimous Declaration which is the founding document for the American experiment in self government. Any interpretation of the Constitution as the law of the land must be subjected to the light and clarity of the Declaration of Independence to establish its validity. All legislation, executive declaration or court opinion must withstand the same scrutiny. Obviously the purpose of the Constitution was to delegate certain powers of the people and the states to maintain order, mediate conflicts of interest and provide for a united defense in the face of invasion. The hope is that we may have peace, tranquility and progress as a nation united in the vision and power of the Declaration of Independence and self government with mutual respect for natural and God given rights. In this light, nothing in the Constitution can be construed in good conscience, as a license to violate the natural and God given rights of men for the good of the state.–Gunny Barton, Ret.

The ABCs of OAS

Operation American Spring (OAS) is the legitimate offspring of our American culture—born of circumstance and God-given right. OAS is an equal-opportunity effort to participate in the uniquely American experience—one that may not come along more than once in several generations. To participate in OAS is the quintessential American experience, a peaceful transition back to our Constitutional constraints.

The vision behind OAS is founded in our Declaration of Independence: “But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security”, simple, easy to understand, though not quite as easy to execute—but absolutely necessary to maintain a viable working relationship between government and the governed.

How we got into our current predicament is not as important as determining how we can best return to our rightful path. There have been many efforts and measures taken to right our ship of state, yet our downward spiral continues, without abatement. Our unresponsive bureaucracy stays focused on their own self-interests, feathering their beds—and those of their friends and family—at our expense. Many of those same bureaucrats have sold their allegiance to divergent governing philosophies, and use distractions and obfuscations to cover their treasonous acts.

But America is waking up. The Emperor’s clothes are becoming increasingly transparent as our so-called leaders’ feet of clay stumble and turn. Deep within the bosom of America is that burning spirit of rugged individualism, struggling to recover from decades of somnolence and diversion.  The light from that fire is regaining its former brilliance, giving true hope to all and shining brightly on the path to our rebirth.

OAS is step one on that path and it beckons for all with the born-again vision of what America was, is, and will once again become. Just as history makes note of every significant step in the right direction, OAS has the potential to join them all as the start of the First American counter-revolution, fighting back against the invasion of totalitarian socialism—communism—an insidious perversion of governance that leaves every nation it touches, a heap of ash and despair.

And in this fight, America will prevail. We will succeed because we have strong men and brave women who understand the value of our Liberty. We will triumph over our enemy, as we always have, because our enemy will underestimate our commitment, and the power God grants us to overcome all odds.

It is said, ‘One man with conviction, is a majority.’ If that is true, a few million American men and women, washed in the blood of their heroes and champions, fueled by their passion for liberty, and willing to make the sacrifice today for all of us to live free tomorrow. This is the definitive opportunity for every American to participate in correcting the course of history. For those who can—must be there, May 16, in DC. For who can’t go, help those who can with money, accommodations, transportation, and meals. For those who can’t go and haven’t the means to help—talk about OAS to friends, neighbors, even complete strangers. And lastly, for those who can’t go, help, or speak—your prayers are always needed and welcome.

MannyPre-Million Veteran March on the Memorials - October 6th, 2013. Manuel removes “Barrycaides” from the WWII Memorial so that Honor Flight Veterans could pay their rspects respects to those that served, and those that paid the ultimate sacrifice for Liberty, the Defeat of fascism and the end of genocide.

A week later Manny would once again remove the “Barrycaides” during the Million Veteran March on the Memorials on October 13, 2014, and say to the world “Tyranny will not STAND. As I recall, Manny dropped his “Barrycaid” off on the front steps of the White House (ok outside the fence, but you get the idea).

No keyboard warrior here; Manuel aka “Manny” is a Marine Combat Veteran who has been out front in the battle against a Federal government that has decided to wage war against it’s citizens. He is an active member of Operation American Spring (OAS), providing valuable leadership to the movement and participates in various OAS events in and around metro Washington D.C. and the Fredericksburg, VA areas.

I am proud to call him friend.

Liberty Bell

“Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof.”

Since I joined Operation American Spring a short while ago, I have talked to hundreds of people; read thousands of posts and articles regarding the wisdom of OAS, both for and against.

The main objection comes from those who continue to believe that the “system” still works. They are committed to working for change within that system. They do not see it as broken, and do not share our sense of urgency. They continue to believe that those they elect into a corrupt system will change it, despite ample evidence that it’s usually the other way around. They entirely ignore that the electoral process is rife with fraud; almost completely compromised. Attempting to fix the problem from within the belly of the beast, where our Constitution is continually violated, is unrealistic.

There are two main reasons why many choose to support OAS. Many want to restore Constitutional limits on government power; to remove the current threat to liberty. Even more risk stepping up and standing out in order to ensure the blessings of liberty and prosperity for future generations.

Those in the first group of OAS supporters are angry. They are beyond fed up with those who manipulate and abuse our government for partisan agendas and personal gain. They are irate at the destruction of America’s wealth and standing in the world. Until recently, most of these men and women have attempted to work within the existing systemic structures, through petition, phone calls and faxes to their elected representatives. Having failed, they now take to the streets in frustration, to make their voices heard.

But those who care for their children more than their own lives, of their children’s children, are motivated by an even more basic emotion: fear. The kind of fear that emboldens mothers to ferociously defend their young against more formidable aggressors. That inspires fathers to sacrifice their very lives for the sake of their families. They have seen moral decay overtake and sap the vitality and goodness of America. They have watched wholesome values attacked and marginalized in favor of a godless “progressive” agenda. They see this once honorable nation strip the People of individual, God-given rights. They despair at the erosion of clearly defined Constitutional principle by elites who justify their seizure of power by insisting that Americans are not fit to make their own decisions for themselves and their own families.

It is this awesome combination of the power of individual angers and fears that gives patriots the strength and determination to do what is necessary to restore the vision of a Constitutional Republic that our Founders bequeathed to us.

We must search our hearts and clearly decide where we stand, and for what. Operation American Spring is an American movement, but in a larger sense, we represent the stirrings of liberty in liberty’s birthplace; we are a rallying cry to all who aspire to live free lives without the heavy hand of government oppression.

If you mean to live free, if you intend that your daughters and sons know the freedom that was handed down, after hard struggle, to us -Then you must resolve to stand and fight to restore the American Constitutional Republic. To fight for as long, and as hard as you are able. If you do not, you have made your decision to cast your lot with elites who will make of you, and your family, nothing more than slaves to their plans, creatures of their whim.

We have finally reached that pivotal moment in history our Founders warned us against. This is the time Americans must make the clear choice to decide our own fates. There is no time left for delay; the forces of global statism are poised to render all debate moot.

We must either accept tyranny, or fight for freedom!

Operation American Spring (OAS) Team Virginia had an excellent weekend outing in two places this weekend, Norfolk and Doswell guns shows. We were able to speak to hundreds of fellow Virginians about our OAS movement, even reaching some politicians that believe in our mission.

Ken Cuccinelli, our former AG, was on hand to kick off his new Civilian Defense firm and Dave Brat, who is our Tea Party candidate to unseat Dave Cantor. Both politicians have never heard of OAS but they do see a need like our mission to dislodge executive powers. As we interact with both, we could soon have them on board with OAS!

Richmond Tea Party group has asked OAS to speak at their monthly meeting in March, allowing us to gather more followers of the OAS movement. Virginia currently has over 20,000 active members in the Tea Party movement.

Dave Van Allen has been working hard and is selling OAS T shirts! A very big thank you goes out to Dave for his hard work on providing Virginia and national OAS marketing material. Dave has many marketing platforms to offer groups that need help spreading the word about OAS.

Next weekend is our large outing in Fredericksburg, Va. We have another booth at the Fredericksburg gun show and will be putting the word out again. This outing will be a huge event and will want everyone’s help manning the booth and getting the word out.

Alex Coffey, Dave Van Allen and Roberto Tonizzo will be heading to CPAC this week in efforts to lobby likeminded Patriots in our mission. CPAC has quite the gathering with the likes of Allen West, Glenn Beck, Sarah Palin and many other constitutionally minded Americans.
