Brief Intro to TACTICAL CIVICS™
Please note, although I held the title of “co-founder” of the TC mission for several years, in February of 2022 David Zuniga the founder excommunicated me from his organization because of a disagreement about how to recruit militia into it, and nothing I say should be construed as representing the current status or official position of that organization. Notwithstanding this sad incidence of “patriot fragmentation sydrome”, TC is a project of enormous value, which this effort exists to support.
Our Republic, the United States of America, is unique in the history of the world, as the only organized society based on the moral principle that we belong to ourselves, based in turn on the fact that God made each of us, gave each of us life, and recognizes our individual rights to make our own decisions and bear the consequences.
When we left the British Empire and built our own political structure, we built it on these facts, on deep knowledge of history and human nature, and we built it to protect the freedom God gave us.
That freedom, and the system we built to defend it, and the prosperity it has allowed us to achieve, have been beacons to the whole world for two centuries.
All this is threatened now, ultimately by our own laziness and cowardice, which has made us ignorant of and unfaithful to the principles our Founders knew so well, and has enabled powerful interests to corrode our culture and steal our freedom. This struggle began even before our Constitution was written, but we have been losing it, for a century and a half.
By the familiar combination of Divine Providence and hard work, a small group scattered around the country has developed a comprehensive plan, and begun a movement, to awaken us from, and help us to repent from, our dereliction. We have an engineered schedule of peaceful, lawful actions and reforms that will bring our government back under the control, and to the service, of We, the People who created it, and will go on to allow us to heal our civilization.
We are TACTICAL CIVICS™
Our first action must be revitalizing the only, and the essential, law-enforcement mechanisms specified in our Constitution but never yet deployed for the purpose. Article I Section 8 Clause 15 names the Militia as responsible for executing the laws of the Union, that is, the Constitution and all other law made in conformity to it. Militia is all of us. It must operate with recognition and regulation by, and coordination with government. But because it is We the People, who ordained that government, it has the authority and duty to enforce the Law against officials and agencies, as much as against private individuals. The Constitution calls for specific support and coordination of Militia by the Congress and the States, but since these are both in persistent violation of these duties, TACTICAL CIVICS™ provides an Ordinance which commits local government to lawfully perform them. Militia must eventually replace all the vast unconstitutional, endemically corrupt and incessantly warmongering, terrorist alphabet agencies and military-industrial complex, but when first re-establihed it will be paid law-enforcement’s best friend, as long as the paid guys stay within the Law. Most important, violating the Constitution will no longer be a crime that every official gets away with.
Directing Militia in this task, the Grand Jury is an institution a thousand years old, which we inherit from English Common Law. Corrupt judges and prosecutors have tried to pull its teeth, but we will educate the people to know their essentially unlimited power to investigate crime, once seated as Grand Jurors. Revitalized Militia (that is all of us and our neighbors) will be able to arrest criminals wherever they may be found, upon indictment by the Grand Jury. No more will corrupt officials and agencies protect each other, as they ignore and pervert the Law, and eat out our substance.
Beginning our reformation at the local level is essential because not only our federal government apparatus but our states are too deeply corrupted to be brought back under the Law by any amount of mere persuasion. But once a responsible remnant of We, the People reclaim the Law as Grand Juries and the sword as Militia, and a critical mass of other citizens see the functioning value of applied, correct American civics (and a lot of small-time government criminals have gone to jail), the State legislatures will be ready to cooperate in our next effort.
It is called Our First Right, and is already being publicized by a broad coalition. It seeks to complete ratification by the States, of the original First Article in the Bill of Rights, which guarantees Congressional Districts of less than 50,000 people. This will bring real representation to most of the country, which now effectively belongs only to the culturally bankrupt big cities. It will purge Congress of career parasites, and make it possible for ordinary decent people to run, be elected, and give us true self-government, rather than government by paid lap-dogs of industry and of the globalists. Small districts will lower the cost of a campaign to an affordable level with no need for dirty money.
Our fourth plan follows the third. One Congressman for each 50,000 citizens adds up to over 6,400, which will not fit in the Capitol building in D.C . Most of our new Representatives will have run on a promise to pass our Bring Congress Home Act, which will create the world’s first distributed legislature: Congress will meet by Internet, each Representative and Senator from his or her own sole, small office in their own district, under the watchful eye of the People whom they represent, not in DC wining and dining with the lobbyists. Honest men and women will no longer have to abandon their families and businesses and work in the cesspool of D.C., to serve us for limited terms in Congress.
Complementing functioning Grand Juries and working to keep straight our decriminalized Congress, is our Indictment Engine. This mechanism, ultimately to be embodied in an artificial-intelligence app, will test every proposed law in the country against the Constitution and the laws of the State in which its sponsors reside. If a proposed “law”, or other government action, violates the law, the Grand Jury in the appropriate jurisdiction will be informed., and the violator will withdraw it, or be prosecuted.
Beyond these five major actions, Tactical Civics has a laundry-list of further reforms for the new, truly representative Congress to pass, to end the theft-by-counterfeiting of our money, to sunset lawless agencies, to end our global bullying and subsidy of tyrants, to protect our borders, and more.
All the details, and a large library of legal and historical references, can be found on the TC web-site (if you join), https://tacticalcivics.com/, and much is available for free here at www.securetheserights.net
This is not pie-in-the-sky. This is not revolution. This is merely enforcement of the magnificent system of law that our forefathers were inspired to create for themselves and their posterity.
It will not take a mass-movement to save our civilization by our plans, but it will take a “responsible remnant”of a few million. YOU can start this sea-change, YOU can put your finger in the dike that protects most of what we hold dear, by founding your own Tactical Civics Chapter (or equivalent), and/or organizing MIlitia, in your own County.
Noone who reads this, and truly values the gift of freedom under law, can justify merely complaining, any more. Grab your oar!
