Will you sit back and watch the demise of America?
By Larry Klayman

Coming on the heels of a fraudulent deficit-reduction bill by Democratic and Republican "leaders," this week predictably saw financial markets worldwide plummet, following the announcement by Standard & Poor's that our nation's AAA credit rating had been downgraded. Coupled with increasingly dire economic straits in Europe and the resulting mob violence in the United Kingdom, the stock market's slide took on greater momentum and steam.

Activists, political commentators and other informed observers had been predicting this for months, if not most of the last year. If we ever needed concrete proof that the United States of America and most of its Western allies were in steep decline, this week provided it.

With a rudderless, if not malevolent, ship of state run by the likes of President Barack Hussein Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi on the Democratic side and John Boehner, Eric Cantor and Mitch McConnell on the Republican side, the "Great Titanic" has capsized and finally begun to sink fatally into David Jones' locker.

And, notwithstanding the domestic effect this "sinking" will have on our general populace, it now becomes increasing clear that emerging foreign communist and Islamic powerhouses like China and perhaps soon even Iran — which is on the verge of being able to launch and deliver an atom bomb — will soon assume the role as the leaders of the world.

In a rapid 235 years, the United States of America will have had its rise and fall — almost 10 times faster than other great civilizations, such as ancient Rome.

"We the People" must accept our responsibility for this. "We" have been complacent, allowing corrupt political hacks to infest not only the executive and legislative branches of government, but also the judiciary. "We" have pompously deluded ourselves, as drunken fools, that these so-called leaders and judges were doing the peoples' business, when by and large they were busy amassing their own power, enriching themselves at the public trough and implementing schemes to further their own interests and, in the case of federal judges, the interests of their "overlords" — the politicians who put them in power.

"We" have seen a malignant cancer grow to the point that it has now more than metastasized. "We" are on our death bed, with no will and testament to bequeath our heritage to the next generation — who spend most of their time anyway, as the progeny of their drunken deluded parents, text messaging and emailing on cell phones, flirting with their "friends" on Facebook and not generally having a clue in any event what is going on if it does not involve their "social network."

Now is the time for those few of us who are awake and not asleep at the switch to take the lead and cut out the cancer that is destroying our body politic and our nation. It is no longer sufficient to wait, as we have for decades, for the next election to "elect" political messiahs who will lead us all to the promised land. These politicians have failed us time in and time again, and the latest deficit-reduction outrage is just the latest example. Even many new tea-party representatives voted with the establishment hacks. In the words of Popeye, "Enough is enough and enough is too much!"

So it came to pass, in a last-ditch effort to mobilize a peaceful uprising, that I called this week for a gathering next month in Washington. As I have in earlier columns, I called for the removal of our so-called leaders, but this time immediately before the nation goes fatally down for the final count. Not wanting there to be widespread violence, as is now occurring in Europe, with the prospect that this violence will soon spread to our shores, I called for Gandhi-style civil disobedience to be used in a massive display in Washington, D.C., and major cities across the country. And, with no time to lose, I called for this to occur during the week of Sept. 17, which is not coincidentally "Constitution Week."

With about six weeks to organize this peaceful action, I call on all of you to get the word out, and join me and other activists in this quest. We must organize and plan to be most effective. And, those who join us must come from all political persuasions. It has not been just conservatives, libertarians and tea partiers who have seen their interests sold out by the political and judicial establishment, but all Americans. We all have a stake in saving our nation before it is too late.

Please contact me through my website and notify your compatriots that strong peaceful action is now necessary. Whether we succeed at removing some or all of the "leaders" who have destroyed the nation is not the only objective. We the People must make it clear to these corrupt establishment hacks that there is a price to be paid for their destructive acts and that now is the time to shape up or ship out. Civil disobedience is not the only means short of violence, the latter of which I do not advocate. We must be prepared, though, to ratchet up the pressure!

Lets keep our beloved country afloat and instead figuratively send the "traitors" to the bottom of the ocean. Now is the time that tries all men's souls. And, in the words of another Founding Father, Patrick Henry, "Give me liberty or give me death." If our Founding Fathers would risk their lives, then we can certainly take strong action, too. The establishment has repeatedly ignored our grievances, just as the British crown did in the years leading up to 1776. And, with each new crop of "elected" so-called conservative and libertarian representatives in the current world of Washington, D.C., most of these "Tories" are co-opted by the likes of John Boehner, a phony conservative if there ever was one. This has left us with no other option. The market collapse of this week, our downgrading as a credit-worthy nation — the first time in American history — and the spreading violence in Europe more than underscores this reality.

We simply cannot sit back and wait for the end of the United States of America. We can accomplish our mission peacefully if we all unite and act decisively now!

I look forward to your thoughts and strong participation and prayers. God bless us all as "One nation under God."
