Below is a perfectly put article as to why the conservative grassroots should not support Operation Spring. The best thing we can do even if we loose elections is continue to fight and continue to educate people on the principles of liberty and freedom using original documents. We should never go the way which Operation Spring is advocating. We must and I mean we must use the tools that our Founders left us. To not do so would be foolhardy. Please boycott Operation Spring.
may offend some good friends by posting this, but it has to be said.
“It is impossible to read the history of the petty republics of Greece and Italy without sensations of horror and disgust at the distractions with which they were continually agitated, and at the rapid succession of revolutions by which they were kept in a state of perpetual vibration between the extremes of tyranny and anarchy.” – Publius, Federalist Paper No. 9
For those who haven’t heard, Operation American Spring is a group of so-called patriots led by retired Col. Harry Riley, who are planning to demonstrate in Washington on May 16th. Their announced aim is to oust politicians they deem corrupt, and to replace them with politicians they like. OAS is claiming the authority of the Constitution and Declaration, to “throw off the bonds” of an unjust government and to redress grievances. There’s just one problem. Transferring power by these methods is totally unconstitutional. If we follow this lead, we can forget elections and voter sovereignty.
One side note – I took a class with Dr. Craig and he is an amazing teacher as are all the teachers who come through the Ashbrook Center to teach the MAHG program.
