The Annette Spencer Project "beta" - this is BIG, please review and commentSubmitted by 40to65 on Sat, 06/29/2013 - 09:04
Dear Friends at the DP,
First thing, I want to thank Michael and Company for this indispensable source of news. I'm one of your "looky-looers". The DP is the second tab on my browser when it opens up, after the Ron Paul Institute. This site is where I get my first news of the day, every day. You - all of you who moderate, post, and comment - are doing an amazing job. I think sometimes you doubt yourselves. Don't. The view from the outside is amazing and I am proud to have you as a reflection of my values and beliefs.
This is my first post. This is the first time I’ve ever had anything that I consider worthy of posting here. I don’t have the right to ask, since I’ve been taking for so long without giving, but I have an idea, and I need your help.
I think I’ve figured out a way to save the Constitution, invoke state sovereignty, eliminate the power of outside influences on our federal government, and give you (and me) something meaningful and targeted to do, right now, when we desperately want to be fixing this mess we’re in.
It’s called the Annette Spencer Project. The website is www.annettespencer.org. The project is named after my mother. There’s a little story about her on the website.
It's basically community organizing for the liberty movement, with some state legislation to back us up. We get to "review" our reps in Congress in our home towns at town hall meetings that we host, and vote to retain or relieve them. If our state supports us and we relieve them, they step down as soon as the review process is complete, and we elect new reps. There's a lot of incentive in the legislation for the states to support us, I think. Our next rep assumes office knowing what happened to the last one. I think it's sweet. And it's easy, and we each pay for our own town hall meetings, which won't cost that much.
If you would do me the honor of scrutinizing the project (not the website please – I’m a pathetic amateur and I know it’s a pretty sad attempt), tell me what you think about it, what won’t work, how to change it to make it work, how to “un-confuse” it if it’s too confusing, etc., anything and everything you have to say about it is what I’m looking for. I created this project for you, specifically, and tried to keep it as politically neutral as I could so that we get help from every American who loves the Constitution but doesn’t necessary agree with us.
Also, since the project is primarily for you, I also need to make sure I didn’t offend you with anything I wrote. I'd also like to make sure I don't offend anyone else.
There are pages in the website that aren’t on the navigation bar. I haven't gotten that far yet. The links start on the “Donate” page and then return you to that same page, so you know you’ve seen all the pages.
I’m still writing and still have a boat load of information for the project that I’m going to put into .pdf format, but it’s not ready yet. I think there’s enough on the website to get you started, if you like the idea and you think we should go forward with it.
Again, thank you so much for your help with this. I think this is the solution that we’ve been looking for, and I’m looking forward to reading what you have to say about it.
