WE THE PEOPLE, is the product of a fine team of 18 distinguished authors who live in four different countries of the world; Nigeria, the United States of America, Britain and France. Nigerians at home and in the diaspora, women and men, young and old, Christians and Muslims, from many professional backgrounds and every geo-political zone in Nigeria, participated in writing this book; therefore, the central message and truths documented in this book is not the opinion of one man, but is the collective wisdom and opinion of WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. Nigeria has suffered enough setbacks and abuse as a nation from bad leaders. Nigerians as a people have suffered enough deprivation, social injustice, government-induced poverty, insecurity, lawlessness and disrespect through bad and corrupt leadership. The government and people of Nigeria have a Constitution, for the purpose of promoting the good governance and welfare of all persons in our country, on the principles of freedom, equality and justice, and for the purpose of consolidating the unity of our people. Every Nigerian president swears an oath to uphold, defend and implement the Constitution of Nigeria, the highest law in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but every Nigerian president has violated directives of the Nigerian Constitution on how to treat WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. Everybody blames leadership for the deplorable state of Nigeria. There is no question that years of bad leadership has inflicted great injuries on the nation. However, those bad leaders were elected into office by bad Nigerians who voted along tribal and religious lines, or on the basis of who gave them the most money to vote for them. WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria are therefore largely responsible for all the problems in Nigeria. But the problems with WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria goes much more beyond the reckless mistakes they make when they vote bad people into office as their leaders. Most present day WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria are corrupt, lawless, unpatriotic, prejudiced along tribal and religious lines, selfish and self-centered. These vices are a great burden to the nation. This book has been written to educate WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. Through education and dissemination of the facts we will change the mindset and create a new breed of WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. The WE THE PEOPLE movement, is the only hope of salvation and transformation for Nigeria. Individual repentance from corruption, lawlessness, reckless behavior, and prejudice along tribal and religious lines is the beginning of salvation and transformation for Nigeria. We need a new breed of WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. Eventually, we shall attain the critical mass required to clean up Nigeria from bottom to top. Only a clean bottom can create a clean top. The WE THE PEOPLE movement seeks to grow a new breed of WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria that cuts across tribal, religious, and political inclinations; men and women of all ages and economic status who will commit to doing the right things in their daily lives, free from corrupt tendencies. Eventually, a clean bottom will lead to a clean top, as WE THE PEOPLE use the power of our votes to select clean men and women of integrity for leadership positions nationwide, as we take back our country from corrupt politicians and leaders who abuse WE THE PEOPLE. Additional Details are provided, including how to become a member of the WE THE PEOPLE movement. We have registered a non-governmental organization (NGO), "THE PEOPLE'S GRASSROOTS ASSOCIATION FOR A CORRUPTION-FREE NIGERIA." Our goal is to raise 50 million united Nigerians of every tribe and religion, men and women, young and old, from every ward, every local government, every state, every geo-political zone of Nigeria through a potent nationwide movement that will include proper and careful exercise of our voting rights to elect honest, decent, intellectuals with integrity as leaders and legislatures for a new and transformed Nigeria of our dreams.

America's remarkable 230-year experiment in republican democracy is in grave danger. Its inspired vision and values have been corrupted, and the government is increasingly alienating both its own citizens and its global neighbors. Thom Hartmann -- our contemporary Thomas Paine -- clearly articulates the magnitude of the threat, while unveiling how we got here and offering specific, practical steps for restoring our beloved democracy.

Now in paperback, Lynne Cheney’s New York Times bestselling illustrated history of how the Constitution came to be. “I am mortified beyond expression when I view the clouds which have spread over the brightest morn that ever dawned upon any country.” —George Washington America had won the Revolution, but our troubles were far from over. The thirteen states were squabbling, the country could not pay its bills, and in Massachusetts farmers had taken up arms against the government. Was our country, which had fought so hard for its independence, going to survive? In May 1787 delegates from across the country—including George Washington, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin—gathered in Philadelphia and, meeting over the course of a sweltering summer, created a new framework for governing: the Constitution of the United States. Their efforts turned a shaky alliance of states into a nation that would prosper and grow powerful, drawing its strength for centuries to come from “We the people” and inspiring hope for freedom around the world. Now in paperback for the first time, this richly illustrated tale of a crucial point in our nation’s history will enthrall readers young and old.

Washington D.C. is a lawless, ruthless city-state - at war with America. It does no good to march, rally, or contact corrupt D.C. puppets to stop supporting abortion, illegal aliens, sexual perversion, and socialist healthcare by which they are destroying our civilization. The war industry stokes Islamic jihad and Great Depression II could begin any day now. We The People have had no plan of action - until now. To restore true popular sovereignty, AmericaAgain! is launching meetups in up to 31,000 small towns to push through a 3-prong plan: 1) Ratify the long-forgotten original First Amendment, the first step to take Congress out of Washington D.C.; 2) Restore the Citizen Militia required by the Constitution; and 3) Return all sovereign public lands to the states. AmericaAgain! will force 21 other reform laws through Congress as well. To learn how we will do all of this, read this book. This is a detailed action plan that will take decades, for us to do what our ancestors failed to do...sovereignly oversee our federal servants in a peaceful, practical new way of life: arrest D.C. organized crime, take our lives back, and even turn Great Depression II to our advantage. We The People will forge a new way of life for our servants, too - forever throwing off the chains that their elite masters forged for us.

A concise history of the long struggle between two fundamentally opposing constitutional traditions, from one of the nation’s leading constitutional scholars—a manifesto for renewing our constitutional republic. The Constitution of the United States begins with the words: “We the People.” But from the earliest days of the American republic, there have been two competing notions of “the People,” which lead to two very different visions of the Constitution. Those who view “We the People” collectively think popular sovereignty resides in the people as a group, which leads them to favor a “democratic” constitution that allows the “will of the people” to be expressed by majority rule. In contrast, those who think popular sovereignty resides in the people as individuals contend that a “republican” constitution is needed to secure the pre-existing inalienable rights of “We the People,” each and every one, against abuses by the majority. In Our Republican Constitution, renowned legal scholar Randy E. Barnett tells the fascinating story of how this debate arose shortly after the Revolution, leading to the adoption of a new and innovative “republican” constitution; and how the struggle over slavery led to its completion by a newly formed Republican Party. Yet soon thereafter, progressive academics and activists urged the courts to remake our Republican Constitution into a democratic one by ignoring key passes of its text. Eventually, the courts complied. Drawing from his deep knowledge of constitutional law and history, as well as his experience litigating on behalf of medical marijuana and against Obamacare, Barnett explains why “We the People” would greatly benefit from the renewal of our Republican Constitution, and how this can be accomplished in the courts and the political arena.

étienne Balibar has been one of Europe's most important philosophical and political thinkers since the 1960s. His work has been vastly influential on both sides of the Atlantic throughout the humanities and the social sciences. In We, the People of Europe?, he expands on themes raised in his previous works to offer a trenchant and eloquently written analysis of "transnational citizenship" from the perspective of contemporary Europe. Balibar moves deftly from state theory, national sovereignty, and debates on multiculturalism and European racism, toward imagining a more democratic and less state-centered European citizenship. Although European unification has progressively divorced the concepts of citizenship and nationhood, this process has met with formidable obstacles. While Balibar seeks a deep understanding of this critical conjuncture, he goes beyond theoretical issues. For example, he examines the emergence, alongside the formal aspects of European citizenship, of a "European apartheid," or the reduplication of external borders in the form of "internal borders" nurtured by dubious notions of national and racial identity. He argues for the democratization of how immigrants and minorities in general are treated by the modern democratic state, and the need to reinvent what it means to be a citizen in an increasingly multicultural, diversified world. A major new work by a renowned theorist, We, the People of Europe? offers a far-reaching alternative to the usual framing of multicultural debates in the United States while also engaging with these debates.

Volume 3, Publisher description: The Civil Rights Revolution carries Bruce Ackerman's sweeping reinterpretation of constitutional history into the era beginning with Brown v. Board of Education. From Rosa Parks's courageous defiance, to Martin Luther King's resounding cadences in "I Have a Dream," to Lyndon Johnson's leadership of Congress, to the Supreme Court's decisions redefining the meaning of equality, the movement to end racial discrimination decisively changed our understanding of the Constitution. Ackerman anchors his discussion in the landmark statutes of the 1960s: the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968. Challenging conventional legal analysis and arguing instead that constitutional politics won the day, he describes the complex interactions among branches of government--and also between government and the ordinary people who participated in the struggle. He showcases leaders such as Everett Dirksen, Hubert Humphrey, and Richard Nixon who insisted on real change, not just formal equality, for blacks and other minorities. The Civil Rights Revolution transformed the Constitution, but not through judicial activism or Article V amendments. The breakthrough was the passage of laws that ended the institutionalized humiliations of Jim Crow and ensured equal rights at work, in schools, and in the voting booth. This legislation gained congressional approval only because of the mobilized support of the American people--and their principles deserve a central place in the nation's history. Ackerman's arguments are especially important at a time when the Roberts Court is actively undermining major achievements of America' Second Reconstruction.
