"We The People" - Nos Populus Productions | by Keith Allen Lehman

YouTube video [video at end of article] link has been passed to me via email from Helen M. Tills, a Patriot citizen who lived through the hard times of Victory Gardens, gasoline shortage, fear of losing freedom, watched News Reels about those fighting in Europe and the Pacific Theater to keep tyranny and oppression away from America’s shores after the initial attack upon American armed forces and civilians on the island of Hawaii. She also has seen how generation after generation have not appreciated what a great country they have and voters vote for popularity and faddish reasons rather than choosing candidates because of their character and their desire to make a difference – For the People.

Ms. Tills has seen our nation’s citizens turn into whining wimps, following leadership that is not for a representative democratic republic for which our nation was founded; but instead, a country of citizens who believe the media and the parasites in our government, from local to national, that the best for Americans is Big Government, instead of limited as the Constitution has set its rules. She has seen American society turn against age-old principles of conduct, and whether religious or not, thrown away all barriers of cultural morality.
Ms. Tills is a Christian, but bears no malice towards others that believe otherwise, or believe in no religion at all. Yet she has seen malice and bias towards her religion, and legislation that endangers traditions and icons of her religion as well as the principles that our country was founded. She has seen our schools being taught out of textbooks that alter history and insert the delusional ideology of Marxism and multiculturalism; weakening the spirit and patriotism that had been taught to her in her youth
Ms. Tills loves her children and her children’s children and does not want to see them or her fellow American patriots to fall under the thumb of tyranny and false promises of progressives that are determined to make the kind of change they shouldn’t look forward to; and she loves her country just as much.
I know this because Helen M. Tills is my aunt and a patriotic and loving person. She is the citizen sheep, but the core of what our country is about; and respects those that serve as sheepdogs against the wolves who would destroy free nations.
The moment you complain about government injustice and the outright corruption, especially when the liberals are in power, one immediately is tagged as "anti-government." Patriots are counter-revolutionists trying to prevent government from overthrowing the US Constitution and rewriting the Bill of Rights. The liberal Patriots stand by their government, but not the people who run it with waste, fraud, corruption and outside of constitutional law. Liberal-Progressives' view government, or rather those that run it, as the solution to all Americans problems - from "cradle to grave" - and are, without probably knowing it, anti-American. The importance of government has become exaggerated, mostly by the people who are running it.
Patriotism is loyalty to each other, citizens of a nation, standing united as one people, not a hodge-podge of multicultural entities, for America is a country of 50 united, yet separate states with a primary and common bond and of a people whose ancestry is as varied as the occupations they pursue. Those states are united by a common law, and that is the Constitution and its amendments.
The flag is the symbol of that patriotism, not a symbol of our government, but a symbol of the People – and thus it should be respected and guarded, just as the Constitution and its Bill of Rights, must be guarded against desecration and usurpation.
The following transcript is from the video that Ms. Tills passed the link to, the video follows the transcript, and which inspired me to get upon my soapbox. The video speaks Truth, and like Freedom, should never be altered …

We The People …
Dear President Obama:
“We The People” have stated resolutely we reject your vision for our country.
You claim you have not heard us.
“We The People” have assembled across America resisting your efforts to subvert our constitution and undermine our liberty.
You claim you have not seen us.
Since you have not acknowledged our message, let us here present it once more for if, as President Wilson said, a leader’s ear must ring with the voices of the people – the time has come.
Our greatest treasure is freedom – the absence of restraints on our ability to think and to act.
The corollary of freedom is individual responsibility.
We believe in the power of the individual.
A few years ago President Bush said, “History moves toward freedom because the desire for freedom is written in every human heart.”
Let us add that we will preserve it only as long as devotion to freedom is expressed in the heart of our actions.

When President Lincoln dedicated Gettysburg National Cemetery he declared, “It is for us the living … to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus so nobly advanced.”
That unfinished cause for which our soldiers willingly go to battle and for which so many have given their lives is a free United States of America
It has been nearly one hundred fifty years and the work President Lincoln spoke of is not finished.
In fact, that work will never be finished.
Freedom is the capacity of self determination.
It is not an entity but a condition, and conditions can change.
Freedom can expand yet so can it contract.
You promised change when you took office, Mr. President, but subjugation is not change we wanted or will accept.

You have expanded government, violated our constitution, confounded laws, seized private industry, destroyed jobs, perverted our economy, perverted our economy, curtailed free speech, corrupted our currency, weakened our national security, and endangered our sovereignty.
By compromising our nation’s cultural, legal and economic institutions, you are ensuring that our children will never achieve the same quality of life as we enjoy today.
Through generational theft you are robbing the unborn of opportunity.
This is not acceptable. Not in America.
We did not become a strong nation through hope but rather through self reliance.
No one better understands the relationship between individual achievement, dignity and strength than our armed forces.
Through every war our soldiers have held this nation’s destiny in their hands.
They have not failed us.
They cherish freedom enough that they are willing to die for it.
Our duty to them and to ourselves is to treasure freedom enough to live up to it.
We accept the challenge, Mr. President.
That is why we are assembling across the land to deliver our message to you as often and in every way we can.
Dismiss us at your political peril.
Our great nation is a Republic.
We will not accept tyranny under any guise.

Your policy to redistribute the fruits of our labor is Statism and will not be tolerated.

By our honor, Mr. President, we vow forever to resist coercive government in America.
Patriots will not stand silent as you attempt to dismantle the greatest nation on earth.
We the People will defend our liberty, we will protect our beloved country, and America’s exceptionalism will prevail.
God Bless the United States of America!
We The People
Nos Populus [The PeopleProductions, copyright 2010

And this, the transcribed speech and what follows, is a declaration applies to the members (regardless of political party) of the US Congress, the US Supreme Court, elected members of the state and local governments, as well, the bias and corrupt media, educational and organizational institutions who would change our nation from a representative democratic republic to an American-version of a Marxist state.
It would reduce the whole instrument to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the United States; and as they would be the sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they please. Certainly no such universal power was meant to be given them. It [the Constitution] was intended to lace them up straightly within the enumerated powers and those without which, as means, these powers could not be carried into effectThomas JeffersonOpinion on a National Bank, 1791
Thanks, HM Tills, for passing this video’s link to me – and thanks for supporting the troops, standing by the principals that made our nation great, unashamed to believe in your chosen religion, and passing wisdom to a sometimes unappreciative generation that no longer believes in anything except self gratification and illusions of a Utopia falsely promised by usurpers of the Constitution and its amendments - parasites in our government and corrupted media entities.



  1. Please say "Hi and Huzzahs!! to your aunt for the wonderful WTP clip. It is beautifully done (runs in the family???).

    I'll be sure to "pass it around" for others to benefit from.

  2. Outstanding.
    Currently viewed by 1,322,561 but lets make it a goal to push that to 10,000,000 by Friday.

  3. You have done an excellent job of stating the nature of our current dilema and the case for liberty. I found no fault whatsoever with your statements. Most unfortunately, the current Congress and the White House have proven that they have no interest in the opinions or desires of the People. They have proven that they have no interest in the limits placed on them by the Constitution or conventions established during the last 200 years. They have truly decided that now is the time to take our country from us. They now consider themselves to be an untouchable elite....the very kind of nobility that the Founders intended to avoid. They do not believe that We the People have the will and the resources to fight them. They believe that they can, and will, use our military to overcome the Constitution and the will of the People.

  4. Rogers13 ...
    Well said. Thank you, fellow American patriot. Now, "Let's Roll!"

  5. T. Jones ...
    Yes. Good video as this should be for all who love freedom to see - whether they are Americans or any freedom-loving citizen of any nation on this globe.

  6. JTX -
    Thanks so much for your eager support for Jefferson's Rebels and Erica. I admire your willingness for involvement.
    On behalf of Aunt Helen - a big thank you and hug which I get every time I ever get the opportunity to see her, which is not often enough.
    I certainly cannot take credit for the wonderful video, however, just the story.

  7. Some of the worst right-wing propaganda I have ever seen. Talk about "Spin". Wow, these words could spin a tornado! Can anybody provide any examples of exactly how Obama is destroying our country?? I bet not. The economy?? That was Wall-Street's fault, Obama helped fix it! So please, somebody, give me some examples. If you can.

  8. Educate yourself first before you even ask such a stupid question then maybe someone will give you some examples. If you are so stupid as not to see the direction the country is being taken by this administration then maybe you don't even deserve an answer

  9. Don, you gotta relax. Give Mike 5 specific examples of how Obama is destroying America. Make them clear examples of his flawed policies. Don't point to the Economy unless you can show that Obama's actions - not lax restrictions on Big Financial Institutions that were in place long before him - clearly caused the Great Recession.

  10. Really Mike, It's fixed???Sounds like you are naive enough to swallow the propaganda coming out of Waashington...Just saying. You might try doing a little research yourself.If it's freedom you detest, I would be willing to help pack to move to somewhere that would suit you better. Perhaps Irag, Iran or Russia. You Pick

  11. Thank you, Mike
    I notice that the replies to the genuine request for facts has generated nothing bu invective and personal attack.


  13. You represent the very kind of threat to the Nation that I served in WWII to protect our country from. And I will join up again to fight against this attempt to harm it by spreading these lies and twisted facts. Do something positive for the country and stop tearing at the very fabric of our Union. I detest this king of evil and for your information I am a former life long Republican.

  14. I am assuming you are against this video from your comments. Please watch this retired General and tell me what you think of his video.
    http://www.morningstartv.com/oak-initiative/marxism-america Please open your eyes. I served for 23 years and retired in 99 so I haven't seen as much as you if you served in WW2 but I can't imagine how you can support this administration. He is an obamanation to our history and goals.

  15. What a bunch of empty rhetoric and teabgger bullshit. This video is nothing but nonsense propagnda.

  16. Im surprised that anyone who could appreciate this video could manage to create a blog on the internet. My hat is off to you sir! you have proved to me that monkeys can drive cars!

  17. Hi
    I have an album of Patriotic Music written and need your help. Can you call me at 732 458 7011
    Thank You

    30 or 40 discrepancies = false flag op

    trust government ? ask any native american

  20. For Mike:
    Obama scorns the rule of law, disregarding the courts. He ignores the people's vote, trampling election results. He bypasses Congress, appointing czars and expanding regulatory agencies. He acts with flagrant arrogance, trespassing our foreign alliances: his words and attitudes prove him to be anti-American. And he lies. The public record holds the needed evidence.

    It is clear not only that he breaks the law, but also that he breaks America, reengineering our economy and society to surrender our sovereignty.

    He ignored the court ruling about Obamacare. He's not defending the borders. He's working to extend amnesty to illegal immigrants. He took Arizona to court to cripple its ability to defend itself against the onslaught of drug cartels. He's abrogated his responsibilities to uphold the law, proclaiming DOMA unconstitutional, as if, for him to speak, makes the law. He is no king.

    He incites racism, arouses bigotry, and employs class warfare, dividing the nation up into communities of distress by building victimhoods and many new kinds of poverty. He panders to political factions to buy votes, practicing activist tactics instead of fulfilling the presidential role of honoring, unifying and defending the nation.

    His measures alienate our allies and facilitate our self-proclaimed enemies; impoverish our people and collapse our economy; and neglect border defense and threaten national security.

    He rejects the separation and enumeration of powers in our Constitution and the Bill of Rights. His idea of government is statist, not American. I want America to have an American future.

    At home here, he took sides with anarchic unions against Gov. Scott fixing the debt. He refuses offshore drilling licenses and blocks domestic oil production while contributing 3 billion to George Soros for offshore drilling in Brazil. He facilitates Muslim aggression and characterizes American patriots as terrorists. He does it all with guile, within the guise of presidential, legal action to change America for the better.

    He withholds evidence of his claim of U. S. citizenship, sealing the data pertaining to his education, spending millions in court to circumvent the law. He scorns the Constitution as flawed. He's willing to let public taxes pay for abortion. He redistributes the nation's wealth without public approval, it's theft. He detests capitalism. He's a radical leftist who disguised how far left he is. He is unqualified to lead America. His performance of the executive role is marked by ignorance, deception, malice and monstrous impiety defiling all that America has done that is good.

    His ignorance of American law, American spirit, and American character, combined with his embrace of leftist, socialist and even communist values, make him unfit to represent the American people. Look at the White House guest list, you'll see he cavorts with the anti-American culture.

  21. We need to get back to looking after Our Country, Our Hungry, Our Homeless and take care of Our own. Our Constitution, Bill of Rights and such were written by great people and for a reason: for us to keep Our Country Great. I'm not saying we can't help when needed, but it is time we guit policing the world, cut the government back and take care of our own. Why should we have so many in our Government that make such an unreasonably amount of money and keep getting raises when we have so many living below or close to the poverty level and more unemployed everyday. I think this is a great video - I even sent it to the President. I know he will never see it, but at least I know I tried!

  22. Y O U M I S S E D !

    Turn that canon 177 degrees and aim those accusations at the BIG Banks and corrupt privately owned financial institutions.

    You might score a direct hit.

  23. The same situation occurred when Jimmy Carter took office, after double digit inflation and double digit unemployment were driven up by Nixon's and Ford's failed policies.
    After he took office, conservatives expected over night reversal of the situation. Without the support of conservatives, this was not possible.
    Fast forward to today, after 8 years of disastrous fiscal policies, on the part of conservatives, Obama is expected to reverse the situation, overnight, with the conservatives fighting him tooth and nail, to prevent logical economical and fiscal policies to reverse the negative trends.
    I might ask where was all the pro-American Freedom hoopla, when President Bush was taking steps to take away many of the personal freedoms our heroes in the military have so valiantly fought for over the years.
    I know this going to fall on deaf ears, but this "We The People" video is a really scary piece of right wing propaganda, with, at best, half truths, innuendos and outright mis-information.
    However, I must say that, technically, it is a very well done piece of video.

  24. I'm sorry.  Maybe I am overly analytical in my thinking, or too well-trained in debate.  As much as I may agree with many of the comments in the foregoing message, it saddens me that the critics of Obama (or anybody else for that matter) have to resort to inflammatory rhetoric instead of sound reasoning based on objective facts.  Just for example, the following quotes:

    "We The People” have stated resolutely we reject your vision for our country.  You claim you have not heard us.  "We the People" have assembled across America resisting your efforts to subvert our constitution and undermine our liberty.  You claim you have not see us.

    Well, who exactly are "we the people"?  Does Ms. Tills claim that her message represents the consensus of all Americans (which is what Jefferson meant in penning those words)?  Where have all these people assembled?  Can you give me any reference to find Obama saying he has not heard or seen this outpouring of public sentiment?

    And the historic references to Lincoln in support of a fight for American freedom and liberty of the individual is very poor scholarship.  The Civil War was not fought against an external threat to our nation.  It was fought to preserve the Union. And even if you accept the questionable argument that it was fought to secure the liberty of black slaves, that does not set the Civil War as a very good backdrop for liberty as defined in this manifestor.

    Obama is consistently criticized by the right as being determined to convert America into a Socialist state, yet his actions and policies are not at all consistent with a Socialist ideology.  (Which is part of why so many of his supporters, who expected a more liberal agenda, are very angry with him.)  Obama is the consummate pragmatist, not an ideologue.

    As I alluded to earlier, I myself am critical of our President in many respects.  But, if I have a legitimate criticism to make, I hope I do it by marshaling the facts and a logical argument, not by mere flag-waving, playing The Battle Hymn of the Republic and making unsubstantiated statements.  That, too, is a form of demagoguery.

  25. What a bunch of rubbish!  Your assumptions are so biased as to beggar belief.  It would help if you would put some of your energy into helping OUR President instead of this slander and disrespect.  What is wrong with you people?  Still complaining because you can't see the mess Congress and the Big Money got us into...lend a hand instead of this rubbish.

  26. This is sick propaganda.  It is not even truthful.  If people are so uninformed that they would believe the charges made in this video as truth We the People are in BIG trouble!

  27. Of course Obama is not a Socialist. The term is often thrown around by persons who have only a vague idea of what the term means. Look up the definition of Socialism. Secondly, as well as being an oxymoron, The American Thinker is a hate filled magazine loaded with unsubstanciated inuendo, half-truths, and glaring errors in logical thinking. I might also add - brilliantly written, and designed for those who don't understand fallacy.

  28. Funny how I am one of the "people" and I fought for this man to be elected because I gave my vote "careful consideration before I voted and I WILL vote for him again in 2014!  This is such a load of crap all wrapped up in patriotism.
