America's most critical political issue
By Arlen Williams
May 12, 2012

What is our most important issue as a nation?
Is it the budget, as critical as that has gotten?
Is it anything we see in our so important Bill of Rights?
Is it even in our Constitution?

Our most important issue as a nation is our core principle, the truth that defines us, ever more critical when that truth is violated, obscured, and covered over with lies.

Our Constitution does cite it, with its first three words, "We the People." But to see what defines our nation, makes us "exceptional" in history, affords us all our rights, and engenders our essential responsibilities, we must look to our nation's founding document, the Declaration of Independence. There we find the authority from whence our Constitution draws its mandates. There we find our basis, for our shared self government.
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government....
And so we read, our nation's most important issue is Sovereignty — that God, sovereign over all, created man in his own image, for us to rule by consent of our own wills upon the earth, accountable to Him and to each other. Also self evident, that we are to rule ourselves within sovereign, thus independent nations, safeguards against the tyranny of empire reaching even to the ultimately corrupt power of global governance. A complex engine, the policing of all our rights and liberties, even our essential "Right to Life," constantly depends on an unceasing, eternal flame as our core: Sovereignty.

In addition to our popular sovereignty, protected from without by the fences of national sovereignty, in America each state has its own kind of sovereignty, as the 10th Amendment stipulates.

And, by "the Laws of Nature and Nature's God" it is self evident that parents hold a sovereign responsibility for and over their children. And the autonomy of our religion and its institutions is to be a sacred sovereignty.

Much information is provided us when we meet our sovereign responsibility to make informed and wise selections at the polls. We may know candidates' positions on spending and taxation, on the right to life, on the natural societal element of marriage, on how they believe our various liberties are to be protected, or our national defense carried out. But where is the knowledge of what they would do with our most important issue, the Declaration Principle of Sovereignty?

Where indeed, while our property rights and many freedoms are gradually usurped by extraconstitutional, bureaucratic councils (called "soviets" in Russian) to carry out the insurrection-governance of our Sovereign People by the United Nations' Agenda 21 guidelines. Where do we go, to find out which candidates are on the side of our sovereignty, instead of such global hegemony?

What of other issues, such as the UN Small Arms Treaty, the International Criminal Court, the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea Treaty, and the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child? It is the United States Senate that is given the constitutional authority to approve or to reject such treaties.

Members of the U.S. House of Representatives are also constantly faced with legislation that would erode or threaten our popular, national, state, parental, and religious sovereignties. Presently, consider the threats of CISPA, the 2012 NDAA, SOPA, and the new governmental powers of seizure of food and water that have been foisted upon our people. Also, the extensive kinetic or potential usurpations of our rights, through legislation or executive fiat, of DHS and its FEMA and TSA.

We must ask questions, by which candidates are cautioned to tell us their philosophy and rationale for similar decisions to come.

Further, some in a competing political belief system, whose mandate is world subjugation, seek to overlay and impose their Sharia Law upon our people.

And when we have a rogue president, as it appears we may for another four years, doing the bidding of the U.N., or of foreign states, or of their financiers, or of transnational corporations and their tycoons, it is Congress that must check him. So, let us draw our attention to congressional candidates.

We are bringing together a method and means of asking congressional candidates the necessary questions and doing the critical analysis, to determine what their elections should mean for our critical sovereignties. The effort is called the Sovereignty Campaign. It will not supplant the important work presently done by patriotic organziations; it will empower these with knowledge of the most vital kind.

Something is very wrong in America. Please tell us how you can help, with either time and effort, or with finances, or both. Remember, the "US" of America has to be all of us, beginning with "me." Please help. And we will introduce you to your real opportunity to reset America upon its true foundation of sovereignty. Let us organize and execute the plan together.

Let us be about the work of assuring that those we elect will work for us as patriots adherent to our nation's founding principle, by protecting, not inhibiting the flame of the Sovereignty of "We the People," created in eternal God's image. Such a flame meets its purposes only if it is shown, to give others light and as necessary, as it applies its heat and chastening effect. But the flame is now flickering in the wind. It needs to be protected and fed.

We have less than half a year, in which to collect the information required, collate it, interpret it, present it, and distribute it to voters.

These last few years, Tea Party protestors began by expressing concern over the grave financial threat to our nation's economic health, of rampant government spending and debt. By the time they truly let their voice be heard, the outcry so fervently shouted, from the natural patriotism of American hearts, was:
    "You work for us!"
Let us know you care too. Ask any question, express any concern. We have an effective plan. At present, email us at or comment below (indicate if you wish your comment kept private, or anonymous). Follow with us at
