An Open Letter to the US Congress

I will be sending copies of this letter to the newly elected Congressmen on January 3, 2011. If you wish to add your name to the letter you may do so online at You are also encouraged to print and send this letter to your members of Congress.

Dear Congressman,

You have recently been elected to “represent” a segment of the population & will be required to take an oath to abide by the Constitution, which enumerates the powers granted to the Congress.
The Declaration of Independence states, “governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” Just because you were elected does not necessarily mean that you have the consent of Americans to be governed.

For over two years people have demanded that Congress:

  • READ THE BILLS they vote on;
  • not include unrelated legislation in bills they pass;
  • WRITE THE LAWS, instead of granting unelected bureaucrats the ability to create regulations that have the force of law;
  • end the bailouts;
  • repeal REAL ID;
  • allow for HONEST MONEY;
  • abolish (or at least audit) the Federal Reserve &

Obviously, none of these demands from the people have been met; I ask that you do everything in your power to meet these demands. I will not write an empty promise about voters remembering how you vote and “firing you” during the next election, because quite honestly most voters have short memories and statistically 90% (or more) of you will be re-elected (thanks in part to gerrymandered districts & campaign finance laws that hinder competition) and remain dependent upon the tax-payers for your lively-hood until you choose to stop living off money stolen from hard working men & women. You and you alone are responsible for your actions and must wrestle your inner demons in order to sleep at night.

I sincerely hope that you heed these words, abide by the oath that you swear to uphold and do all that is in your power to increase personal freedom & liberty and bring an end to government infringement of rights.

In Peace, Freedom, Love & Liberty,
Darryl W. Perry
