From The Desk of the Southeast Regional Director of WTP Congress

We just completed two major tasks after the showing of the Russo film here in Tampa. We helped arrange the Atlanta showing, and some of us participated at the Veteran's for Peace Rally in Tampa to get the message out about the importance of "redress of grievances" as one of our fundamental rights to keep an out of control government in check.

Although WTP Congress is non partisan, we made some great contacts with the political parties in Tampa. We also have some possibilities of getting Bob, Joe Bannister, and Aaron Russo on the Montel Williams Show.

A new member that we met last week came to her first meeting with us and made arrangements for us to go to USF (The University of South Florida) to pass out flyers and help get some of the students involved. We are planning to start a WTP Congress Chapter there. But we are not stopping there. Our goal is to start a WTP Congress chapter in every college and University across the South East. This is just the beginning.

We have had some of the members begin to help by committing to a few hours (2-3) each week. We have to keep reminding ourselves that when Dr. Martin Luther King began his movement, he didn't have cell phones, email, fax machines, computers, blogs, websites, printers.......well you get the point. He only had word of mouth, and those mad enough and motivated enough to get moving.

Are we mad enough yet to get motivated?

When I took the position of South East Regional Director for WTP, Donna and I made a descision that she would quit her job, I would work full time, and that with her help we could together put in 50-60 hours to get WTP up and running in the SE. We know not everyone is in the position to do that, nor do we expect you to, but 2-3 hours a week is great!

Also, back in November, Bob Schulz said that he was going on another hunger strike. I suggested that he not do that until he had an organization big enough to stand behind him. So it is time that we all start applying ourselves. Everyone in the organization has to help. It might appear we can't do it alone, but we will if necessary. Look what others have accomplished with less means. With a committment of 2-3 hours a week, you will be surprised what can be accomplished. It can be done during your lunch break, or after the kids go to bed. There is no lack of ideas to hold the government accountable. We can all do a little bit.

Last time we put out a call to action, we had so many people respond but we weren't prepared. We are ready this time! The SE chapter of WTP Congress has a very definite purpose and goal in mind. Please give us a call and tell us what committee you would like to be on, and then we will begin to work together as a well organized group. We have job descriptions for each committee. If you'd like a copy of them let us know. Someone will be contacting you to update your information and see where you stand as far as committees. But don't wait for them to call you. Call me, or Donna, or email us.

Petition For Redress Of Grievances Relating To The "War On Terrorism"

WHEREAS, The U.S.A. Patriot Act was voted on by men and women engulfed in a terrifying atmosphere of shock, fear, mass media hysteria and anthrax mailings, and

Tell Your Sheriff: No Enforcement of So-Called "PATRIOT" Act

By: Devvy Kidd

Americans who are not in a self imposed coma are aware that Congress has once again shredded the Fourth and Fifth Amendments with their recent vote to extend certain provisions of the un-Patriot Act. The only problem is, the Constitution must be amended, not changed, altered or nullified depending on the vicissitudes dictated by political corruption. The day following the vote I watched Judge Andrew Napolitano attempt to explain to that silly fop on FOX News, Shepard Smith, what Congress in fact did with this latest shot at the Constitution.

Regarding Irwin Schiff Who Appears In The Aaron Russo Film

We just learned that the IRS has started taking Mr. Schiff's commissary money so he cannot buy tooth paste, a decent razor, candy or chips, across the counter medications or anything else not provided by his jailers. Additionally, because of those confiscations he cannot make any phone calls or buy stamps for letters!!

A Blogger Talks About The New Movie

This morning, Saturday, March 18, I went to what I thought was going to be a seminar with speakers giving their point of view. Little did I know that a movie was to be shown; a movie that is being shown around the country; and it was entitled "From Freedom to Fascism," I thought that with an intrigueing name like this it had to be good, and it was. Very thought provoking, and very disturbing...This is a good movie that all American's should watch and ponder. It will open your eyes to what is really going on, and you will never be the same.

Devvy Kidd Promotes New Movie

A new and powerful movie is now finished and has been showing in selected cities across the country. From Freedom to Fascism was written and produced by my friend, Aaron Russo. While I was at his house in February 2005 for a visit, I was able to see the full interview from the movie with a former IRS Commissioner and Joseph Banister. Just watching those two segments on Aaron's huge TV screen told me this was going to be one powerful film.
