Common Ground Opening Remarks

Thank you … Everyone,
Consider … American history. From 1776 to the mid 20th century, our example
spread hope throughout the world. People loved America … For example, in
China, the word American … “mei-qwo-ren” … means “beautiful people”.
Our success gave hope to the citizens of France. They spent years working
450,000 pounds … of copper and steel … into an international treasure.
At the Statue of Liberty’s feet, there’s a broken shackle – symbolizing our
victory over Kings who presumed to have a divine right to squander our lives
and our fortunes in unjust wars.
In 1787, the Constitution was designed to limit federal power … to stop
Presidents from wasting our lives. Starting in the 1930s, the Supreme Court
began perverting our laws … using the “living tree” method of interpretation
… that violates the amendment process required by Article 5.
In this room today, we share many common goals ….
… goals that can be achieved merely by enforcing the Constitution.
Let THAT be our Common Ground !!
So, how do we start? … 4 Ways
