Mobius Strip Press Mission Statement:
Mobius Strip Press was established as an appliance to reintroduce the Republic to its founding principles and provide relevant information to leaders, organizations, and citizens of this great Republic. Our primary function is to illuminate the power the Republic possesses, as defined by the codified process in the Constitution, the Ratification Debates and the Bill of Rights. It is paramount if the good citizens of this Republic wish to retain their individual liberties and sovereignty that they must learn that the Republic is the only entity that can save our hybrid Constitutional Republic. To do this Mobius Strip Press is reaching out to leaders, organizations, and citizens of every State to create an active team of Constitutional warriors who will call upon and demand their local elected servants to petition their State Legislatures to protect them from Federal tyranny and demand the same State Legislatures and their Governors to execute their powers of office and fulfill their oaths of office in protecting their citizens from Federal tyranny by supporting and defending “the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Consequently, the only methodology to their disposal is to coalesce as the union once again and convene a Convention for Republic Review. The general government has refused to follow the Article V process for over 150 years; therefore, the States must apply the Article V process to all roles, responsibilities, and powers (RRP) that have not been enumerated in the Constitution or any ratified amendment to the Constitution just as the original States for ratified the Constitution. According to James Madison and the framers the States are obligated and duty bound to protect the Constitution from Federal encroachments and must convene the convention for Republic Review to consider all usurpation's as non-Amendments to the Constitution and formally reject or accept these as Constitutional or not, once and for all.
A Message and Strategy to the Citizens of the United States:
The oath of being and becoming a citizen of the United States:
"I hereby declare, on oath, that I absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state or sovereignty, of whom or which I have heretofore been a subject or citizen; that I will support and defend the Constitution and laws of the United States of America against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I will bear arms on behalf of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform noncombatant service in the armed forces of the United States when required by the law; that I will perform work of national importance under civilian direction when required by the law; and that I take this obligation freely without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; so help me God."
Family, Friends, and Fellow-Citizens:
I hope this new correspondence reaches everyone in good health and high spirits, especially considering the degree of deprivation our political servants have turned from their role and responsibility in our Constitutional Republic. By the way, the aforementioned sentiment is not limited those who serve in Washington DC, this includes State and local political servants as well. This is why, in my previous email, which publicized the publishing of my book “We the People: Whose Constitution is it Anyway – A Constitutional Solution to a Constitutional Problem” in an eBook format, I promised that would follow up with a delineation of what I am trying to do, once I could announce the availability of my hardcopy version of the first book, which is a irrefutable argument that the Republic must convene a Convention. The second book “We the People: The Strategy to Convene a Convention – For Republic Review” is now released in both eBook format and also in hardcopy print. This is the strategy as to how “We the People” can unite the States once again to reclaim the republic. As a point in fact we can do this with less than 5000 Constitutional warriors. Work on the final book “We the People: Reclaiming the Republic,” will begin late summer or fall time frame. This third book should be completed in the Spring/Summer of 2015. By this time we should have several States preparing to convene the necessary convention.
By now, I think everyone can admit to frustration, fear, and possibly even the feeling of helplessness that watching or listening to conservative entertainers (e.g. Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Hannity, and the plethora of others) or even the social progressive news/radio channels that America is powerless to turn itself around. Based upon the assertions of conservative entertainers and the progressive media's focus and arguments one might think they are correct. The reality, the Conservative entertainers lack a real solution and ask their following to exercise futile efforts by marching on Washington, or doing little things that do not address the “real problem." I may be wrong on this though so please email me at grmobley [at] mobiusstrippress.com with their plan that will undo all the unconstitutional RRP’s, I’ll even settle for a plan and date that will repeal Obamacare. I will post these plans with the supporters names here:
Bottom line, most of the vast RRP's exercised by the general government are unconstitutional. America must be insane because based on the definition of “insanity” we keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results, we are exhibiting insane behavior. Even the acclaimed conservative “good guys” like Marco Rubio and too many others that fall into the camp that Obamacare or some other form of government is Constitutional (when it is not) and simply wants to change or adapt it to their agenda (I thought elected servants were supposed to support and defend the Constitution and not have an agenda to pervert it) instead of eradicating the parasitic effect it will have on a nation that is too indolent already. Paradoxically, they seem to point to the Constitution as a guide but they never turn to the States, who those who possess the supreme role of oversight, and stand up and assert the Article V powers. Now the Executive amends the Constitution via fiat executive orders, the Judiciary amends the Constitution with judicial review, and the Legislative amends the Constitution in most bills they concoct.
According to our framers (i.e. Madison, Washington, Hamilton, Jefferson, Monroe, and others), Article V, my good friends and citizens, is the process of making new laws Constitutional. In addition, Article V is our only body of hope and the Constitutional choice of our framers to save our Republic and the Constitution itself! I'll expound upon these a little later in this message, but as one can see this is not a pithy blast, and this message resembles the pamphlets that were used leading up to and during the Revolutionary War. This is why my first three books are and will be in a pamphlet form.
Let me first apologize up front for any typo’s or grammatical errors in this message and on this site, I am focused on the message or the nourishment of the apple, and not the polishing thereof. Regardless of the shine, one will obtain the same nourishment.
On to an Actual "Strategy" and hope for the Republic!
An Important Note First
Many adhere to the concept that a Constitutional Convention is destructive. I disagree, but bear in mind that I am calling for a very specific Convention. Not one to rewrite or Amend the Constitution, I am calling for a Republic Review, which is simply the execution of an audit of the general government (the one the States delegated limited and defined powers too) as to how it is aligned with the Constitution. Those who think a Convention in general is destructive are 1) those that have no faith in God and 2) they do not share the wisdom of our framers. This is due to a lack of understanding as to what can be done within a convention and the framers intent in giving the Constitutional Convention to the States within Article V to “stop or peel back” unconstitutional actions or usurpations. If Madison, Jefferson, Mason and the other framers were here today, I am confident they would point to the plethora of Federal usurpations that the Federal government has refused to send out to ratify the Constitution as Amendments and they would advise us all that the States must convene a convention. Then one by one within the convention the States must attempt to ratify each of these new roles, responsibilities, or powers (RRPa), as though the Legislative and the Executive had done the right thing and forwarded the new RRP's to the States for ratification in the first place.
The standard and the codified process that was installed was if the Federal government was going to take on a new RRP that was not enumerated, then this newly obtained RRP must be ratified per the Constitution or they are usurpation’s. Approving new RRPs is not for the Judiciary Branch to rule upon, the Executive to author their own legislation via Executive Orders, or Congress to write bills or acts that by pass the Article V process. Therefore, in the convention one must assert these RRP's are usurpations and must be rejected or accepted by the States to align the Constitution with or without the new RRP's as a accepted and amended or not. One must remember that it only takes greater than one-fourth (13) States to reject an Amendment or usurpation.
As an aside, how many States sued that Obamacare was unconstitutional? Answer: There were twenty-six and two States took their own path, total 28 resisted this Federal Tyranny, more than necessary to reject this constitutionally had the general government followed the Constitutional process (Article V). By the Article V process Obamacare would have been struck down by the States, which is a good reason why the general government not to abide by the Constitution anymore! It interferes with their agenda.
Getting back on the naysayers, without reading the framers assertions, most good Americans only think of a convention as a rewriting or making wholesale changes to the Constitution. One must remember two things, that all powers not specifically delegated to the general government are reserved to the States and secondly, that any changes to any portion of the existing Constitution such as the second Amendment would require three-fourths of the States to ratify these changes. Convening a convention for Republic Review is not only implied it is the obligation of the States, if one reads the ratification debates, the Federalist Papers and the Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions. Furthermore, in the Convention, the States can authorize the dissolution of powers to any unconstitutional RRP's, expediting the process, instead of passing a menu of items back to the States for approval.
In context of all the unconstitutional RRP’s the States can and must assert their oversight powers and directly address and accept or reject any new RRPs that Federal government had failed to send to the States for ratification via the Article V ratification process. This would include RRPs such as National Parks. Do the States truly believe the existing general government is the best steward for these parks and land? If so than the Constitution must be amended to give them this enumerated power. Therefore, the absence of the Republic and the role the Republic plays in the checks and balances over the general government per Madison, Jefferson and other framers, clearly defined the role of the States as the Ultimate sovereign responsible to stop Federal usurpations.
“We the People: Whose Constitution is it Anyway – A Constitutional Fix to a Constitutional Problem” provides the irrefutable argument of the necessity of convening a constitutional (meaning within the contractual boundaries of the compact) Convention for Republic Review as paramount, citing founding documents and Constitutional precedence. Moreover, this book asserts that in the twenty-first century there is a compelling argument to the uniting of the Republic in a permanent context. There is no way Congress or the political “Party” leadership will allow Congress to call such a Convention; therefore, “we must build it so they will come.” Again, the absence of the States or Republic has been culpable in allowing the child government (the Federal) to get out of control. As such, almost all citizens regardless of political persuasion (i.e. Democrats and Republicans) see the actions and the direction of the Federal government as a real threat to our individual liberties and sovereignty. Therefore, it is my hope and prayer that you too find yourself on the side of individual liberties and shift your paradigm towards outward/distributive government, which the framers originally instituted by the ratification of the Constitution in 1789, and not the centralization of power of setting up a monarchy or oligarchy. Once you read this book, you too will see precisely why the framers erected what I assert as a Hybrid Constitutional Republic and why President Jefferson referred to the United States as a “Confederacy.”
To encapsulate this as concisely as possible (at the expense of repeating info above); the only way America will be able to regain and preserve our individual liberties, our sovereignty, and the Constitution is for the Republic (the States) is for the States to take back its role and responsibility within the Republic. What must happen? All’s we need is thirty-four States to commit and convene a Convention for Republic Review. Remember if you build it they will come. Stated differently, if thirty-four States convene a convention, the other States will join because they have skin in the game (the union). If not, the political leaders of these States will suffer from a severe backlash of their "We the People," and will likely be removed, unless the residents of these State are too far gone to the lunacy of centralized Socialism. I can see California or Hawaii in this camp, but that is okay since the Republic can get the necessary work done with only two thirds showing up for the convention.
In the writing of “We the People: The Strategy to Convene a Convention – For Republic Review” the strategy has now been modeled after the same methodology that the framers used when they formed the first Continental Congress. Mobius Strip Press is now focused on reaching out to leaders who are not only frustrated but motivated to articulate a very clear concise and succinct message to the local and State representatives. These petitions and statements will be available soon on this site and the central site ReclaimingtheRepublic.org (coming soon).
Now go and protect your liberties, before some tyrant or despot rips them away from you!
