AMERICANS AGAINST OPPRESSIVE LAWS
“OUR MISSION STATEMENT”
Realizing that “We, the Little People”, seem to no longer have a voice in National or State Politics we are issuing the following mission statement:
Our common goal is to protect the liberty of others, to protect all Americans against oppressive laws that go unchallenged in the courts taking away the rights of our citizens. Our goals are to seek repeal or modification of these oppressive laws. We are Americans for America, we believe in strength in numbers. Our saying is “E Pluribus Unum” (many to one) from many voices to one voice, achieving one common goal. We Americans ( The Many ) will unite to be one voice, and how do we do this, not by insurrection but by the power of our VOTE !! United. We are ” Americans Against Oppressive Laws!”.
In 1670, William Penn broke the law and faced execution by violating the “conventicle act” which made the Church of England the only legal church. His crime was teaching a different view of the bible. Edward Bushell and 3 fellow jurors spent 9 weeks of torture in prison because they would not bow to the court and convict Penn for something they knew was not right. Edward Bushell said “My liberty is not for sale”. Had this not happened, there would have been no Pennsylvania, no Philadelphia, no Independence Hall and no Liberty Bell. Penn was exonerated.
In March 1775, Just before the declaration of independence was written and we were still under British rule, Patrick Henry, a young attorney, rode into the town of Culpepper, Va. and was shocked when he saw a minister tied to a whipping post. The minister was beaten so hard the bones of his rib cage were showing. The ministers’ crime, he refused to take out a license to practice his religion. This is what inspired Patrick Henry to state “Give me Liberty or Give me Death”.
When the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4th, 1776 the war for independence began changing the face of our nation. America was plunging into governing itself but only after a hard and bitter war with the British. The Bill of Rights and the constitution gave us our right to the freedoms our forefathers came to this country for. Unfortunately, as the years passed, our lawmakers did just as they were hired to do, introduce bills and make laws, full time not part time as our ancestors did. This confusing tangle of laws is making it easier for our corporations to do business in other countries. Our people are losing the opportunities our forefathers fought and died for. Politicians began using their positions as a job not as civil servants and have been granting themselves and their constituents (pork) huge portions of the Federal Treasury, the peoples money. Our signers of the Constitution and Bill of rights would roll over in their graves if they seen what a mess has been made of those precious documents paid for in blood.
Most Americans believe oppressive laws and statutes cannot happen in the United States of America. After all, we’re the land of the free, home of the brave, and we’re totally protected by the constitution? Wrong! Unfortunately, unless an unfair oppressive law, enacted and passed by our legislators, are challenged in the supreme courts (state and federal), unfair, unjust and oppressive laws can be added to the law books. Not all laws are bad of course but, we the people are expected to obey these laws good or bad. Unjust laws go mainly unchallenged in the courts due to the time and expense of such a huge undertaking. In summary, the little people without the money or time are forced to let oppression, in the form of unjust laws, continue to rob us of our freedoms.
We are lawing ourselves out of existence, decimating employment and American opportunity and sending our manufacturing jobs overseas. Hundreds of laws every year, most unnecessary, are strangling our businesses and our people in every way possible, most are in the disguise of protecting the consumer. Consumers do have to be protected somewhat but there is a limit as to how many laws are needed to do that. Improving on present laws would be far better than making brand new confusing laws. The AAOL mission is to challenge oppressive laws and make our laws fair for all.
