    It's actually a "reclaim the American Continent from corporations posing as legitimate government" motif.

    The corporations are coming to get us!! Ahh!

    Here's their audiocast:

    Since when is the issuing of ultimatums to elected officials considered "free speech"?

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    If I tell a politician they need to say "Happy Holidays" or I am going to boycott them and vote against them. That is an ultimatum and is indeed free speech.

    We do not know what the group intentds to do in 3 days and since they have not stated any violence against the governors if they don't resign, it has to be treated as free speech until such time as they have evidence contrary to it.

    Innocent until proven guilty.

    "Do what we want or will will vote you out of office."

    It's an ultimatum and there is nothing wrong with it. With no threat of violence or illegal activity, there is zero wrong with this.

    Yup........ this administration has lost the "granny" vote and will lose the "kids" vote as soon as those kids figure out that they will have to buy a very expensive insurance policy they don't want or need.

    I've have never seen such a stupid and incompetent administration in my life.... and I lived through Peanuts Presidency.

    Re: Extremist group demands governors resign

    I mostly scanned the thread and if somebody else has posted this, I apologize. But here are the stated goals of the "Restore America" plan as drafted by the Guardians of the Free Republic group deemed 'extremist' by CNN. This is the group that sent out the letters to the governors.

    Now whether this is a bunch of kooks or passionate nuts or patriots, I haven't decided. But I can't find ANYTHING on their website that even hints of any form of violence, insurrection, civil disobedience, or other illegal activity.

    So what is it about them that labels them as 'extreme'?

    From their website:

    IMMEDIATE GOALS OF THE RESTORE AMERICA PLAN

    Ending foreclosure and bank collection actions immediately (our first and seventh directives)

    Ending tax prosecutions immediately (second and sixth directives)

    Ending invasions, prosecutions and detentions for fictitious crimes against the state that lack an injured party other than insurrection, treason and frauds against the United States (third and eighth directives)

    Ending molestation on the byways (fourth and ninth directives)
    Production of sovereign identification and passports that do not proclaim subject-class citizenship (fourth and ninth directives)

    Restoration of the trappings of proper de jure governance (fifth and tenth directives)

    Restoration of the common law of the Land (third and eighth directives)
    reigning in of the admiralty color-of-law venue to the high seas (third and eighth directives)

    Restoration of the proper de jure judicial institutions such as the district court of the United States and the one supreme Court as constructed and restrained in the Constitution for the United States of America, c. 1787 (Phase 2, thirteenth through fifteenth directives)

    Re-absorption of the de facto judicial aberrations such as USDC into the de jure institutions (Phase 2, thirteenth through fifteenth directives)
    a PERMANENT TERMINATION OF TERRITORIAL GOVERNMENT OUTSIDE CONSTITUTIONAL LIMITATIONS beginning with voiding of the Downes v. Bidwell monstrosity (Phase 2, eighteenth directive)

    Arrest and shackling of the District Court of the District of Columbia (Phase 2, sixteenth directive)

    Recognition of sovereign status in the police databanks of the land (fourth and ninth directives) and a lawful and orderly removal of the corporate state as the ruler of every aspect of your life.

    And we will accomplish all of that – with your help – BEHIND THE SCENES, lawfully, peacefully, without violence and without risking civil war.
    Guardians of the Free Republics

    Oh no, that's not extreme at all. We simply want (demand) the dismantling of the Federal government. BTW, this missive reads suspiciously like something that was copied verbatim from the 18th century
