Welcome Letter

 

Welcome to the great American Dream!

            It is a personal journey of discovery both within and outside the community of the United States of America. It is an ongoing, ever evolving, historical narrative of humanity that is being written everyday by our actions and the actions of billions of other human beings on our one world.

            For our part, the journey begins with the Iroquois Confederacies “Great Law of Peace” upon which the US Constitution, our nation’s rule book was modeled. The Constitution is the “Supreme Law of the land”, a contract, a national cooperative if you will, among the American people. This cooperative evolved out of a mental and physical prowess, matched with a courage and conviction that rises at times of great need. Witness a Revolution, Emancipation, Women’s Rights, Civil Rights, and these are but the beginning.

            One such time of great need has never been so sorely felt as right now. There are wrongs that if not righted will continue to prevail against this great nation with terrible and foul consequences. That the Constitution is no longer of regard in our offices of governance is most duly noted. It is this disregard that lies squarely at the feet of “We the People”, for we expect of our servants that which we refuse to consign to ourselves, and greatly to our own peril. As the saying goes, “knowledge is power”.

  1. The first step that is required in bringing our nation back to Constitutional principles, “the rule of Law”, is reading and having a working knowledge of the Constitution and its history.
  2. The Second step is challenging political officeholders and candidates, civil servants and military on their knowledge and actions constitutionally.
  3. The third step is developing legal challenges against offending servants.

            As to the character of the leaders of our nation, perhaps it is best reflected in a paragraph from the Iroquois Confederacy’s “Great Law of Peace”:

“The chiefs of the League of Five Nations shall be mentors of the people for all time. The thickness of their skin shall be seven spans, which is to say that they shall be proof against anger, offensive action, and criticism. Their hearts shall be full of peace and good will, and their minds filled with a yearning for the welfare of the people of the League. With endless patience, they shall carry out their duty. Their firmness shall be tempered with tenderness for their people. Neither anger nor fury shall find lodging in their minds and all their words and actions shall be marked by calm deliberation.”

As translated in Akwesasne Notes, 1977

We might be well counseled to support and promote women and men of such stature to our high offices.

We invite you to join the CRCA and bring your courage and conviction with other great Americans to right the wrongs and Restore the US Constitution “To ourselves and our posterity”.

Sincerely,

Joseph K. LaBonte

President and CEO
