When you find out that virtually the entire government has been illegally spying on every American, what do you do?
The Liberty Movement is notoriously bad at strategy and tactics. So far, the response has been to condemn the practice in speeches and call for new legislation, possibly lawsuits. Since judges approved the spying, lawsuits will likely fail.
There has been surprisingly little talk of impeachment, the means the Founders provided to deal with just such abuses of power. The Congress can impeach anyone in the line of authority who knew about the spying. They would never impeach Obama obviously and Congress has rarely if ever impeached executive branch appointees. However, Congress can and has impeached judges.
It’s a principle of strategy to attack the opponent at its weakest point. In this case, that’s the judge who signed the order, Judge Roger Vinson.
Liberty Movement activists should advocate that the House commence impeachment proceedings. All the conventional means of getting this message out should be explored.
It’s beside the point that this will be difficult. Aside from open rebellion, this is the best pressure point to push at this particular moment.
(As I have said before in Direct Citizen Action, if there was a revolution at this time, most Americans, having been brainwashed in government schools, or currently living off government money, would support the Redcoats.)
