Our Founder is a descendant of the blood line of the 11th U.S. President, James Knox Polk. President Polk had no children; however, our Founder descends from President James K. Polk’s family tree. James K. Polk’s father was Col. Samuel Polk. His grandfather was Col. Ezekiel Franklin Polk. One of Col. Ezekiel Franklin Polk’s brothers was Gen. Thomas Polk. James A Polk's great-great grandfather’s great grandfather was Gen. Thomas Polk.
Hello, I am the Founder of this Non-profit Organization, and it was designed for the purpose of serving as a National Forum or Conduit for the over 330 Million American Citizens to collectively communicate to their State & Congressional Representatives.
I Personally have never served in any branch of the U.S. Military, nor have I ever served our Nation in Public Office. I hold the utmost Respect to all of our Veterans that have served in either of these services to our Country.
So, now that I have enjoyed the fruits of the sacrifices of my fellow American Military Personnel and the many Public Servants over my past 67 years, I believed it is time for me to contribute to the Freedoms that we all share due to the protections made by all of the herein named American Patriots.
To make a contribution to our collective American Freedoms, I have founded this Organization that shall benefit ALL AMERICAN CITIZENS.
The name of the Organization is We The People of the United States.com, and the Organization operates this website under the web address of:
For the remainder of this message I shall refer to the Organization named “We The People of the United States.com” as “WTP” simply to abbreviate the title for conversation’s sake.
“The Mission of WTP is to serve as the Nation-Wide Forum to gather All American Citizens that have registered to Vote into assembly through an Electronic Opinions Portal that will indicate to our Representatives the "Opinions & Interests" of the American Citizens regarding Legislation in each of the State Legislatures, and in Congress.”
WTP encourage each and every Citizen to register to vote and participate in voicing their individual opinions on legislation that effects their Freedoms.
As you will see by the end of this message, an Electronic Opinions Portal is needed today so that the American Citizens at Large can gather into one Assembly to inform our Representatives of our "OPINIONS & INTERESTS".
For over 244 years our Nation has operated under a political system known as a Republican Democracy.
This means that since our Founding Fathers had no way to allow for a Fully Democratic Government, where the Population at Large would collectively gather in one Assembly to make & manage the laws of the land, designating Representatives to represent the Opinions & Interests of the Population at Large was the best option in 1775.
So, as indicated in the U.S. Constitution, as the country’s population grew from 1790 to present, Congress was directed by Constitutional Mandate to Reapportion the Representatives for the people at large to maintain the ratio of 1 Representative for each 30,000 people at large.
Observing the following spreadsheet of Representation over the years, it appears the (1/30,000) Ratio was never followed by Congress. Plus, as of 1929 Congress decided the Reapportionment Mandate needed to be Terminated, and 435 Representatives would indefinitely be sufficient to know and vote the Opinions & Interests of the Population at Large, regardless of the number.

Not One Representative knows what the Opinions of his 758,620 Constituents are!
We The People should demand that our Opinions be known & heard!
“The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense are the constitutional rights secure.”

“In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace,
But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag. We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language; and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
"The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.
"One Regret I shall never have is for my Dreams to be found questioning me during my final hours on this Earth:
James, of the over 7 Billion Souls on the Earth God sent me to you,
WHY DID YOU DO NOTHING WITH ME?"
James A Polk
“If there are men in this country big enough to own the government of the United States, they are going to own it.”
“The government, which was designed for the people, has got into the hands of the bosses and their employers, the special interests. An Invisible empire has been set up above the forms of democracy.”
“The ear of the leader must ring with the voices of the people.”
“We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.”
“Man is not free unless government is limited. There’s a clear cause and effect here that is as neat and predictable as a law of physics: As government expands, liberty contracts.”
“We the people tell the government what to do, it doesn’t tell us.”
“Our problems are man-made; therefore, they may be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings. We need men who can dream of things that never were.”
“We are not afraid to entrust the American people with unpleasant facts, foreign ideas, alien philosophies, and competitive values. For a nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.”
“Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democratic answer, but the right answer. Let us not seek to fix the blame for the past. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.”
“Things do not happen. Things are made to happen.”
“Sure it's a big job; but I don't know anyone who can do it better than I can.”
John F. Kennedy
