Their leader, Harry Riley says, “We are calling for the removal of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Mitch McConnell, John Boehner, Nancy Pelosi, and Eric Holder as a start toward constitutional restoration. They have all abandoned the US Constitution, are unworthy to be retained in a position that calls for servant status.”
Operation American Spring also strives to get rid off all those lawmakers who remain “to sponsor and pass very Constitutionally crafted State legislation to dissolve the size, powers, scope and spending of the US Government by 2/3rds.” The activists claim that they expect up 30 million Americans join them on Friday for their rally.
Organizers also anticipate “incremental nullification” by state legislatures of “all withholding taxes, employment taxes, employer taxes, and income taxes.”
“This will effectively DOUBLE the size of ALL American Middle Class family weekly paychecks and cause our local city and town economies to boom,” announce the organizers on their web page.
Harry Riley promises that his group does not want violence, however, he admits that sometimes peaceful resolutions are not bringing any changes.
“For more than five years, ‘we the people’ have been writing, calling, faxing Congress, the media, screaming in Town Halls, marching, rallying, demonstrating, petitioning, all to no avail,” Riley said. “Every branch of government looks at ‘we the people’ whom they have taken an oath to serve, as ‘pests,’ interfering with their political agenda, cramping their self-serving, greedy agendas. We have no faith in the ballot box any longer, as many believe this sacred secret box has been compromised.”
All the previous attempts of the organizers to drive Obama along with the lawmakers out of the office were unsuccessful. However, they did help members to bring their aim closer.
“Every political persuasion, rich, poor, every color, all ages, men, women, liberal, conservative, independent, unemployed, et al, are now mobilizing to participate in this peaceful, non-violent, cause in the search for constitutional restoration for America,” Riley said. “We have well over 1 million militia members mobilizing; bikers, truckers, hunters, Tea Party groups — citizens across America. No, I don’t think 10 million (participants) is high at all.”
