From Dean Haskins of Restore the Constitutional Republic:

“There once existed a “fringe movement” comprised of people who were publicly ridiculed for their specific and firmly held conviction—a conviction that ran counter to the generally held beliefs of their time.  As staunchly as they embraced what they knew to be truth, it seemed no less than futility trying to sway the vast majority to accept, or even consider, that knowledge.  The institutions that controlled the dissemination of public information condemned these “truth bearers” as unworthy of the slightest civility.  It even became dangerous to attempt to convince the masses that these contentions were, in fact, truth—so dangerous that one of the group’s leaders was eventually imprisoned for openly sharing his viewpoint, and then placed under house arrest for the remainder of his years.
 
Is this how history will recall us—the “birthers” of the early 21 century?  If it is, then it will likely be part of the account describing America’s demise.  This portrayal certainly looks accurate regarding what we’ve experienced, except for the leader’s imprisonment.  But, the “leader” to whom I am referring was Galileo Galilei, and the fringe movement of his day was the heliocentrists—those who believed the earth orbited the sun, and not the other way around.  Just because society considers beliefs that run counter to the understandings of the gullible masses to be “fringe” or “conspiracy theories,” doesn’t mean that those beliefs are not true.  The earth continues to orbit the sun.
 
There is a group of people, who rely on us to retain their jobs, who have still not provided truthful, informed answers to our questions about Mr. Obama’s eligibility to be president—the members of Congress.  While a very nasty bug has kept me pretty silent for more than a couple weeks, I feel I have now recovered enough to once again remember just how angry it makes me that these folks have arrogantly dismissed us as lunatics—and they are supposed to be working FOR us!
 
So, The WHY Initiative is now being implemented in full force.  Citizen Wells and I finalized it today, and we are ready to begin a new barrage of inquiries into the offices of our elected officials in Congress.
 
Here’s what we’re asking you to do: call, write, email, and/or visit the U.S. Representatives and Senators in YOUR state only.  Believe me, since they view getting re-elected as their most important job, they are really only concerned with keeping their constituents happy.  It does very little for someone in Ohio to contact an elected official in Kentucky—there’s no vote involved there, so the Ohioan means nothing to the Kentucky official.
 
We’re NOT asking for them to send you an answer to your request—we’ve already been sickened enough by their moronic lies.  No, all we’d like you to request of them is to enter into a dialogue with the representatives of our movement.  Citizen Wells and I will determine who will speak with any of them who appear willing.  In that dialogue, the question to which we’ll be trying to obtain an answer will be “Why didn’t you ask for proof that Barack Obama is a natural born citizen?”  We know they just HAD to have had a reason.  We’d now like to know what it was.
 
Here is a sample letter you can cut and paste, or you can take the specifics of it and write your own letter.
 
**********************************
Dear [Elected Official],
 
As you undoubtedly know, there are many people across the country who are aware and disturbed that Barack Obama has refused to provide proper documentation to prove he is a natural born citizen as required by our Constitution.  After the general election, many of your constituents communicated with you asking that you request a proper investigation into the matter, but you chose not to.
 
I am not asking you to provide more of the same debunked misinformation and deception with which many representatives and senators chose to reply to those previous requests; they were lies then, so they’ll continue to be lies.  What I am asking is for you merely to have a brief dialogue with the representatives of our movement to answer a simple question: Why didn’t you ask for the proof that so many of your constituents expected to be provided?  Why did you think Barack Obama was constitutionally eligible to be president?  Did you rely on the media for your decision?  Did you just trust snopes.com and factcheck.org?  Did you just believe that nobody could have ever been elected president without being properly vetted at some point in the process?  Were you threatened?  Were you provided with some communication directing you to ignore the inquiries? 
 
Through this initiative, The WHY Initiative, those in our ever-growing movement are committed to two things regarding the elected officials who will not provide honest answers to their constituents: we will refuse to financially support any of their efforts, and we will work to see that those officials are removed from office through the election process.  That would seem a steep price for you to pay when the alternative would be such an easy thing to do.  And, we are not interested in speaking with any of your staffers.  These answers should be answered by only you.
 
I don’t know about any of the other members of Congress, but I have confidence that you will be able to provide a legitimate answer to that question.  In fact, I have such confidence in you that I am expecting you to do so.
 
To make arrangements to provide your answers, please make contact at either of these email addresses:
 
Citizen Wells: citizenwells@gmail.com
Dean Haskins: dhaskins@restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.com
 
Or call: 434.525.1479
 
Thanking you in advance for your timely and forthright response.
 
Sincerely,
 
[NAME]
[CITY, STATE]
 
****************************************************
Here is an online resource with contact information for each state: http://www.visi.com/juan/congress/
 
Next, we’d like you to keep us posted about the contacts you are making, but rather than trying to keep up with, and categorize, countless emails, please keep us updated by posting your progress on our forum: http://www.restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.com/forum/index.php.  If you haven’t registered, please do so—it’s quick and painless.  There is a board on the forum labeled “Individual State Boards.”  Once there, you’ll see your state’s individual board.  Please post your updates there.  If you would be interested in being a coordinator for your state, please let us know.
 
I would just like to express my gratitude for the many kind sentiments I’ve received while I’ve been ill.  I cannot ever remember being so sick for so long.  I am profoundly encouraged by how many of you are choosing to remain steadfast in this battle, and it is your mettle that gives me the desire to step back into the ring and fight for all I’m worth.
 
We WILL be heard!!!
 
God bless each of you.

Congress Watch, WHY Initiative, US Constitution, US Congress, Obama eligibility, Congressmen, Senators, Representatives, Accountable, 2010 Elections, Military oath, Restore the Constitutional Republic

The WHY initiative is a new movement that evolved out of
efforts by the Citizen Wells blog US Constitution Hall of Shame
and Democratic Disaster (now Restore the Constitutional Republic)
and others to inform congressmen before the general election
and before Congress certified the Electoral College votes.
We are taking this effort nationwide and will be asking for
volunteers. Our initial efforts are to get some straight answers
on Obama’s eligibility and upholding the US Constitution. This
will continue on through the 2010 election cycle and beyond. We
must hold Congress accountable to the US Constitution and
American people.

Here are some exerpts from The WHY Initiative: Holding Congress Accountable

Prologue
“I am writing this as a concerned American, not as a Democrat, Republican,
Independent or other political position. I dislike modern political
parties, although in honesty, I am more disgusted with the modern day
Democrat party. We need more statesmen, less politics and putting
America first. I promise you I will go after Republicans with the same
veracity that I question Democrats.

You, I and most Americans have let this happen. Like the frog slowly
cooking in a pot of water, not realizing that it is being cooked, we
have allowed our institutions, like Congress and the Judicial as well
as the MSM, to cook our brains into a stupor of submission. Television
screens, just like the screens in the homes of “1984″ have brought us
just the “news” that the modern day Big Brother, the Obama Camp, wants
us to hear. Revisionist history and adoration of Big Brother.

The changes in this country did not occur overnight and our attempts
to restore obedience to the US Constitution and responsible institutions
will take time and effort. We have been given a wake up call. Just as the
“shot heard round the world” was a wake up call for the patriots of the
American Revolution, we must sieze this unique moment in history and
rise to the occasion. We have seen what will happen if we choose to do
otherwise. Join us in making Congress accountable to the American public.”

From the Mario Apuzzo lawsuit

“110. When so much doubt has been expressed in the public arena about Obama’s
eligibility to be President, Congress had a duty to investigate and confirm for
the sake of the Constitution and the plaintiffs and other American people which
it represents if Obama is so qualified by holding a Congressional hearing and
investigation on the matter with full subpoena power. Endnote 17.”

From Dean Haskins:

“The Death of Common Sense

The Birth of The WHY Initiative”

“Exactly when did common sense die in this country? Obviously, it has
been on life support for some time; but now that our collective national
synapses have stopped firing, we aren’t even in an era of philosophical
“gray.””

“By now, those reading this have likely heard all the constitutional
reasoning regarding the ineligibility of the UPOTUS (Unconstitutional
President of the United States).  However, in spite of our undaunted
pleas to our elected officials, it appears they continue to suffer a
profound inability to discern between truth and fiction.
In response to the many inquiries they have received, they continue to
reply with faulty logic, misinformation, and outright lies.  And, we
are becoming more and more aware of the fact that many, if not all, of
our correspondence with them has never even reached them.  There is a
fortified firewall between the elected officials and their constituents. 
That moat is commonly referred to as “staffers.”  I have been told that
many of the staffers simply toss the inquiries, and their bosses never
even see them.
From the many replies that people have received from the offices of
elected officials (for I am now very careful not to say that they are
actual responses from the officials themselves), there is an Orwellian
pattern of damaged brain matter in their words.  Here are some of the
more common blights of misinformation being proffered by this
inexplicable class of political zombies:”

We have created a new blog, Congress Watch, to place not only the
dialogue we have with congressmen during the WHY Initiative, but
going forward into and beyond the 2010 Elections. We will also
put information there to help convince congressmen that we do
indeed have a constitutional crisis with a usurper as president.
Letters of support and concern from the military will be posted
as well as efforts throughout the country to get congressmen to
listen to their constituents and obey the US Constitution.

We have already been in touch with concerned citizens and other
internet sites. Congress Watch belongs to the people just as the
US Constitution belongs to the people. We are seeking involvement
from other bloggers, internet sites and concerned Americans to
help in this endeavor. Sadly, our best efforts, hurried as they were
before the general election and Congress convening, fell on deaf
ears. That will not happen this time. Their apathy, arrogance
or other defects will be met with resolve of knowing that many
of them will seek reelection in 2010. They cannot ignore us for
very long.

We now have time to organize properly. We will get by congressional
aides to get answers from congressmen. A team of “experts” will
be available to answer questions in a professional manner, but
we will not accept defeat. We will demand straight answers from
congressmen.

What can you do to help?

Dean Haskins, who became chairman of Restore the Constitutional
Republic in January, has reorganized and secured the website
as a .com. We are requesting that those who want to organize
state efforts or assist to get the attention of their congressmen
go there and sign up:

http://www.restoretheconstitutionalrepublic.com

The efforts to get the attention of congressmen will be more
orderly than past efforts. We realize that the people of each
state are more apt to have insights into the office hours
and local meeting habits of their elected officials. We will
have our “experts” available as needed. The experts will not
be intimidated.

We are also asking for volunteers to help with Congress Watch.
Once again, we have short term and long term goals, however
the objective is always the same, holding Congress accountable.
Bloggers, internet sites or concerned citizens, if you would
like to help keep Congress Watch up to date with information
on congressmen and nationwide initiatives, leave a comment
on the blog:

http://congresswatch.wordpress.com/

We must seize the moment to regain trust in government and
control of this country.

God bless.
