Tell The Governor To Obey The Law On NOV. 10th

The Date: Thursday, November 10th

The Place: CT Legislative Office Building, 300 Capitol Ave, Room 1A, Hartford, CT

We have asked the legislature to act...... and they have!!! 

This is a public hearing regarding the constitutionality of Executive Orders 9 & 10!! Everyone needs to be at this hearing!! We need to pack the place!!! 

The Governor's Executive Orders 9 & 10 are unconstitutional!! He has usurped the authority of the legislature while trying to unionize daycare workers and personal care attendants. The legislature wants to know what the people of this state think about it.......... Now is our chance!!! Are we really going to sit back while out Connecticut Constitution is completely disregarded? Are we going to let there be no consequences? Or are we going to stand for our state's Constitution and the rule of law? We need to stand up and let them know we are not going to sit back and do nothing!! This is when we can flex OUR muscle and let them see we mean business!! We need you there, we need you to spread the word and bring everyone you can!!

We need to show them that WE THE PEOPLE are paying attention!!!! We need you to be at the legislatures hearing on Executive Orders 9 & 10 on Nov 10th!!

A Victory For The People!!!!

"Victory for the People!!!  Thanks to the efforts of We The People of Connecticut, Inc, Connecticut's Constitution Lobby, the Governor seems to have started to adhere to the Constitution. 

The Constitution Lobby notified the Governor that his Executive Orders 9 and 10 contain provisions which are unconstitutional, and usurped the authority of the Legislature, and asked the Governor to amend or rescind them. When there was no response from the Governor, the Constitution Lobby notified the Legislature that we expect them to hold an inquiry into those Executive Orders.

While we were waiting to hear when the Legislature will hold it's hearing, the Governor issued Executive Order 11, which adheres to his Executive Branch authority. More importantly, the last paragraph of Executive Order 11 states, 'Nothing in this Order shall be deemed to contradict or supercede any statute or Constitutional provisions, and this Order is not intended to suspend, modify or revoke any statutory provisions enacted by the General Assembly."  

So it appears that the Governor knows the people are watching and will hold him accountable to his oath of office to uphold the Constitution.  Congratulations to the people of the state of Connecticut for taking back the power which belongs to them!"

My Apologizies

I must first apologize for not living up to the standard I set for myself. You see I wanted this to be THE source for information regarding We The People Of Connecticut and I dropped the ball. We have been very busy and have limited time and man power. We are all volunteers doing this in our "spare" time, we have jobs and or have businesses to run as well as personal lives and We The People. While the organization has been moving forward, some portions of the organization have been neglected, this being one of them. I am refocusing my efforts regarding this blog and it will live up to the standard I have set.

In addition to our events and actions we will begin posting pieces regarding the Constitution both State and Federal as well as informational pieces about a wide range of topics.

In the last month we have taken action regarding 2 Executive Orders Governor Malloy has issued. Executive Order #9 attempted to unionize child care providers (Daycare workers) in the state. And Executive Order #10 attempted to unionize all home health aids in the state. We The People Of Connecticut has taken action regarding both of these unconstitutional Executive Orders.

The action taken so far regarding EO 9 include an open letter to Governor Malloy notifying him that he is in violation of the Connecticut Constitution and asking him to rescind it immediately. This was done on September 26th 2011.

Executive Order #10 similarly attempts to unionize all Personal Care Attendants. Which include in-home healthcare providers for the elderly or disabled. The Governor was notified as to the unconstitutional nature of this Executive Oder as well with a letter outlining the violations and again asking that the order be rescinded. This took place on October 3rd 2011.

Here is where we catch up to our current action. Yesterday, October 17th, We The People Of Connecticut formally petitioned the Connecticut Legislature to begin formal inquires into the unconstitutional actions of the Governor regarding Executive Orders 9 & 10. We are asking for an official bi-partisan inquiry and for the legislature to take the appropriate action to make these Executive Orders conform the Connecticut's State Constitution.

All of the above actions can be viewed in detail on our website in the "actions" tab. We have a link to it on the left side of this blog under "Useful Links". Please read them, they are very informative.
I will renew my pledge to make this THE first source for the latest news regarding our actions and events. Again, I apologize for not keeping up, there will always be room for improvement, but I will do my best.

We are always looking for people to help us. As this organization gets bigger (as it has been doing over the last few months) it is becoming harder for us to focus on what we need to do. If you would like to help, please contact us at We are looking for all sorts of help, we are spreading ourselves way too thin!! So if you are thinking you would like to get involved some how and politics as usual is not your cup of tea, try going in a constitutional direction!! We could use your help.

This Week With We The People! 8/6 - 8/14

Wow folks what a week we have had. It is truly exciting to meet people and feel the enthusiasm for the We The People project.

We started just over a week ago on August 6&7 at Blue Trails Range in Wallingford. We were there for two days sharing a booth with another non-political/ non-partisan group Oath Keepers. We would like to thank Oath Keepers for inviting us to join them. The turn out was excellent and the crowd was extremely receptive to our message. We handed out tons of cards and literature as well. The sound of the free exercise of Second Amendment rights in the background was music to our ears!!

We next joined the Spirits Of '76 group at Bogey's Pub in Torrington on August 10th. We would like to thank Keith Farrell, the Founder and President of the group, for providing a forum for our presentation and we would also like to thank all who attended. Those in attendance were well informed and had great questions and comments for us and we thank them for their participation. The Spirits Of '76 is a relatively new group of individuals based in Torrington who's objective is to enhance their community through voluntary service and to foster an environment of hands-on leadership. They are working on a food drive for their local soup kitchen as one of their first initiatives. If you are in the Torrington area and would like to know more or get involved with them check them out on Facebook at or just type in Spirits Of '76 in the search bar on your Facebook page. Their mission is laudable and we wish them much success in this worthwhile endeavor.

Next on Friday August 12 we were at the private home of Nancy Ferguson speaking to a group of invited guests. As we are finding all over this State the people were very enthusiastic and very well informed about the current constitutional issues of the day. The questions and conversation during and after the event were inspiring and motivating. We would like to thank Nancy not only for the invitation to give our presentation, but also for the delicious food!!! The way to a constitutionalist's heart is definitely through his least this constitutionalist!! Thanks Nancy!!!

And finally today Sunday August 14th we were in Essex for a return trip to George Fox's residence where we gave our presentation to a group of well informed and very motivated people. We would like to thank the attendees for their pledges of support and assistance in getting this group future audiences in various other forums. We look forward to working with them to get the word out. Thank you once again to George Fox who opened his home to us and our guests and for providing food for us all. His hospitality, generosity and willingness to help are inspiring!!

So it has been a busy week, but the support and positive reactions to our message is inspiring us to push on even harder than before. We have many new members and many more pledges of support and potential for additional opportunities to give presentations, some of which could prove to be for very large groups!! It was also inspiring to see young people at our presentations, it is a special honor to speak with the youth and teach them about our Constitution. It is hard work, but it is rewarding and inspiring!!

If you can pull a group of 8 to 10 people together (or more) and would like us to speak with them and give our presentation contact us at , we will go anywhere in the State of Connecticut!! We will speak to any group, we are non-political and non-partisan, we are constitutional!!

I look forward to seeing you at the next presentation!!!

Thanks to all who attended this week!! It was a blast!!

Today's Event Report- 7-24-2011 in Essex

Firstly We The People Of Connecticut would like to thank George Fox for his incredible hospitality and for an event that went off without a single hiccup!! The luncheon before the presentation was fabulous as was the dessert afterward. We can not thank George enough for inviting us into his home and making us feel welcomed as if we were old and dear friends. We were very honored to be invited into his home.

There were about a dozen people in attendance, all of whom listened to the presentation and asked some excellent questions and had encouraging comments. Each time we do this we are amazed at how enlightened and motivated the people in attendance are, and these are just the kind of people we need to join us! We would like to thank all of those who attended and joined. Together we can get this job done!

If you would like to sponsor an event, please contact us at
We will give the presentation anywhere in Connecticut and for any size group from 10 to 10,000!! We can not do this without your help and support!!

Thanks again to George Fox for a great event, you are a true gentleman, sir!

Yes, Time Magazine, The Constitution Does Still Matter.

Okay, so being the masochist that I am, I decided to read the Time Magazine article on the relevance of the U.S. Constitution entitled "Does It Still Matter?" written by Richard Stengel (July 4th 2011 issue). The opening salvo tries to paint the Constitution as a document written by cavemen who could not possibly imagine the events of the current day, the technology, the social issues........the length of a skirt (?). It's funny, when I read the Constitution none of that seems relevant to what our Founders were attempting, which was to create a governmental system that would serve a country perfectly well as long as they adhered to it's basic premises. I am quite certain the length of a woman's skirt was never an least not a constitutional one. Our Founders were devising a structure for a central government and attempting to limit it's powers. That's all.....nothing more, nothing less. How people travel across the country or how fast a weapon of war gets to it's target are irrelevant to the Constitution.

Throughout this piece there is one theme that stuck out for me and that is the continual use of reinterpretation and other forms of constitutional tomfoolery to achieve some political or social end which our Founders never intended and in many cases railed against in their writings of the time. In the end the article came to the conclusion that the Constitution is alive and well and that any debate is healthy....... While I might agree that debate is healthy, I would disagree that the Constitution is alive and well. It might be, for those who would twist it's words to mean anything they wish. It might also be, in this present environment where reinterpretation seems to be an accepted practice. But for those of us who watch time and again as more of the teeth are knocked out of the Constitution, this fighter is in trouble and we need to step in and help.

Reinterpretation is what I call what is being done to the Constitution. My reasoning is this, the Constitution already has a well documented meaning and a thorough explanation. Our Founders left fantastic records of exactly what it was they were trying to accomplish as well as the meaning of specific sections of the document. And yes, even during the drafting there was debate, but agreements were reached and the Constitution was completed, with a particular meaning.......... And I would consider that meaning to be "cast in stone" much Mr. Stengel's dismay.

The vast majority of the article was dedicated to reinterpretations and their justifications as well as the concept that the Constitution is a "living document" that is subject to reinterpretation by virtually anyone who reads it and for whatever purpose the government or any political party chooses and that our Founders actually wanted it this way!! A notion that could not be farther from the wishes of our Founders! Thomas Jefferson's famous quote in a letter to Wilson Carey said this; "When an instrument admits two constructions, the one safe, the other dangerous, the one precise, the other indefinite, I prefer that which is safe and precise. I had rather ask an enlargement of power from the nation, where it found necessary, that to assume it by a construction that would make the powers boundless. Our peculiar security is in possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction." Is that not exactly what reinterpretation does? Of course it is, and that is precisely why some wish to use it. It is in effect a way of amending the Constitution without having to go through the whole difficult and laborious process. Well, the process was made difficult a laborious for a reason!! The Founders did not want the Constitution altered on a whim! In this one quote Jefferson puts to rest Mr. Stengel's notion that our Founders wanted our Constitution to be interpreted, and his false claim that our Founders also wanted a very strong central government.

Some of the mischief that goes on with our Constitution is not just a result of reinterpretation, but some comes from wordsmithing. Take for instance the word "regulate" in the "commerce clause". The definition that seems to fit best by the description in the Federalist Papers is this; "to cause something to occur at predictable intervals or in a regular way.", this definition gives the commerce clause it's intended meaning. Our Founders wanted free trade between States with no taxes, imposts or duties, they did this because they realized all too well the use of the tax code as a weapon. They wanted goods to flow freely from one State to another and from one State through another. This would make trade predictable, it would flow in a regular way. The new meaning (to control) gives the government unbridled authority to control trade between States. Goods that leave one State headed for another now fall under Federal "control" and now even goods that don't leave a State are potentially subject to governmental interference because they too are said to effect commerce! In this one reinterpretation the dangers become crystal clear. Something the Federal government was suppose to make flow regularly and smoothly now does anything but. And it is this incredible federal control that presently impedes what should be a thriving free market economy. This is the very opposite of what was intended by our Founders.

Another way our Constitution is attacked by it's opponents is by simply making stuff up and hoping it sticks. A classic example of "making stuff up" offered up by Mr. Stengel comes from the age old mutilation of the Three Fifths Clause. People with agendas don't just reinterpret this clause, they actually make stuff up. Their arguments simply have no logical origin within the clause itself. He literally claims that our Constitution and our Founders said that "a black person was three-fifths of a human being"......The Three Fifths Clause reads as follows; "Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbers, which shall be determined by adding to the whole Number of free Persons, including those bound to Service for a Term of Years, and excluding Indians not taxed, three fifths of all others." There is no mention of race and certainly no implication that those who fall under the heading of "all others" are sub-human.......none whatsoever. But if you read it in context it does not fit the narrative which is designed to inflame segments of the population and bias people unfamiliar with this clause against the Constitution. This narrative has created a segment of the population whom now believe the U.S. Constitution to be a racist document. When reality speaks a different message. The three-fifths clause does two things, first it acknowledges that slaves or "all others" are not property by giving them representation in Congress. Secondly, by not giving "all others" full representation it ensures that slave States could not achieve superior representation simply by increasing slave population. This provision in and of itself ensured the end of slavery. Emancipated slave Frederick Douglass came to realize the true meaning of the three-fifths clause by eliminating the wordsmithing and reinterpretation and reading the document as written. He was a huge proponent of reading the Constitution as a stand alone document, reading the words, not interpreting it. This is inevitably how he came to his revelation that the U.S. Constitution was in fact an anti-slavery document.

I agree with Frederick Douglass, the Constitution should be read as a stand alone document, no intent should be necessary. However in defense of the Constitution I will always fall back on intent, not the sometimes ugly debates, but the intent of the document as written. Intent is incredibly important, especially when opponents of the Constitution are doing whatever magic tricks they can to get us be forget the original intent, by redefining words or create new meaning where none exist. The words of our Founders were not meant to be altered by slight of hand, they were meant to be understood in context. It is not a living document that changes with the generations or by anyone who reads it. Of what use is a written Constitution if the words mean whatever anyone wishes them to mean?

As an actual substantive article about the relevance of the Constitution, the piece fell way short. As a way to further the concept of reinterpretation as perhaps a viable and intended use of the Constitution and perpetuate some existing reinterpretations, he may have succeeded. If his motivations were even remotely in doubt this quote from the article should confirm it for you- " We cannot let the Constitution become an obstacle to a future with a sensible health care system, a globalized economy, an evolving sense of civil an political rights." An "obstacle" a politically motivated agenda..... This is exactly how it is seen by some. With magazines like Time printing this hogwash it is my firm belief that we as individuals must combat it by talking to our neighbors, getting educated and getting involved in the defense of the Constitution. It is crucial to our Country's future!!

Now, I could have gone on for many more paragraphs and bored you to tears refuting Mr. Stengel's every assertion, but I chose instead to address the overall theme of constitutional mischief. I would much rather see you spend your remaining free time reading the Constitution, or the Federalist Papers, or the 5000 Year Leap.....or something along those lines instead!! It's just a suggestion!! ;-)

Thanks for taking the time to read this!!

What We've Been Up To This Week July 3rd through July 9th

This week has been an amazing week. It started on July 4th with our Nation celebrating it's independence from England. That celebration continued for We The People Of Connecticut, Inc. to July 5th with an informational  presentation for the 9-12 group in Shelton. We would like to thank Linda Garamella-Fusco for inviting us to address this group. There were about 30 people present and the group proved to be a very enthusiastic audience. Estelle and Deborah Stevenson did a fantastic job as presenters, explaining our goals and fielding questions. The questions from the audience and the feedback after the presentation were extremely encouraging. After this presentation we learned that there is the possibility of future opportunities to speak to groups and attend events in this area, which we both appreciate and look forward to.

Please keep in mind, we are always looking for groups to talk to. We will speak to a room of hundreds or we will speak with 10 of your neighbors. We will speak with anyone curious about what we are doing and with a love of the Constitution and the rule of law. We can be contacted at

On Saturday, one member of our Board of Directors, Robin Emond will be in Enfield at their 4th of July Town Celebration on the Town Green (on the corner of North Main St and Enfield St). If you are in the Enfield area and want to check our group out please stop by. Robin will be there Saturday until 3:30pm and information will be available there Sunday as well. Please check us out and consider joining our efforts in whatever capacity you can.

 In future news, We The People Of Connecticut, Inc. will be moving into our headquarters in East Hartford this month. The date and events surrounding this move will be brought to you here.

Thank you for checking out the blog. Now that things are happening, and happening quickly I will be updating more often. This will be the place to go to hear about future events where we will be, future speaking engagements, subjects of interest and the legal cases we are involved in. So keep coming back to find out where we are, what we're doing and to stay informed!!!

July 1st 2011, Connecticut Gets The First Ever Constitution Lobby

Today, July 1st 2011, at a press conference on the north steps of the Capitol Building in Hartford Connecticut at 10am EST, the creation of the first ever in the nation Constitution Lobby was formally announced. The video can be watched at the address below:

Special thanks to Palin Smith for his efforts in recording, editing and posting this video so quickly. The link can also be found in the useful links section of this page.

Connecticut's Constitution Lobby is official.

Estelle Stevenson one of the incorporating Board Members made the formal announcement. She outlined the objectives and basic structure of the organization, including the involvement of volunteer Constitution Monitors in each of the 169 cities and towns in our state. Citizens who will watch their local, state and federal governments. These Monitors then report any suspected violations to the Citizen Vigilance Center which will act to redress any violations.

Estelle also introduced Robin Emond as another incorporating Board Member and the master behind the We The People, Inc. website. Robin has put countless hours into making the website functional and user friendly as well as doing virtually anything else that was asked of her. Therefore a big thank you goes out to her as well.

Finally Estelle introduced Deborah Stevenson who is We The People Of Connecticut, Inc.'s Lead Constitutional Attorney and turned the program over to her. Deborah emphasized the permanent presence of We The People Of Connecticut, Inc. She also reinforced the non-political, non-partisan and non-profit aspects of this organization. She went on to say that this organization has one goal, to defend the Constitution. She explained that this will be done by ensuring that every action, by every official, on every level, comply with the Constitution and the rule of law. And lastly Deborah described the steps that can be taken to redress grievances.

Both Estelle and Deborah outlined the conditions that have brought us to form this organization. We The People must get involved, we must pay attention and we must take a stand.

Thank you to the enthusiastic crowd who showed up for the press conference. We will need your help as well as the help of many of your friends and neighbors to ensure we can accomplish our goals!! 5% is all we need and we are on our way to that goal!! We the People must defend the Constitution because it can not defend it's self!!!!

Congratulations people of CT!!! Finally someone's got your back!!!

Join Us for a Press Conference and Rally at the Capitol in Hartford on Friday


A major announcement will be made at a news conference in Hartford, CT. on
July 1, 2011 at 10:00 a.m., on the north steps of the Capitol building.
For the first time in the history of this nation, because the Constitution cannot defend itself, We the People of Connecticut, Inc. has formed a Constitution Lobby – of the People, for the People and by the People – solely for the purpose of defending the Constitution and the rule of law.
The Constitution State is the first State in the nation to have a Constitution lobby.
Grassroots individuals formed “We the People of Connecticut, Inc.” as a permanent, non-political, not-for-profit organization, specifically to lobby on behalf of the U.S. Constitution, the Connecticut Constitution and our local City Charters. While others may lobby for or against a variety of political issues, no one yet has formed a non-political lobby specifically and solely, designed to defend the Constitution on purely legal, not political, grounds.
The purpose is to organize a large number of ordinary people from all across the state into a massive Constitutional Lobby – to be a more formidable force than all the lobbies and unions now in Connecticut- which will keep a permanent watchful eye on what government is doing at every level, and will hold those in power directly accountable to the State and federal Constitution and the rule of law.
There will be Constitution monitors in each town across the State, in addition to Constitution monitors watching state and federal officials. When monitors find official action believed to violate the Constitution, they will report that violation to the statewide offices of We the People of Connecticut, Inc. where a Citizen’s Vigilance Center will be permanently established and staffed by attorneys who will review the action and take any and all appropriate legal steps to correct the violation.
We the People of Connecticut, Inc. also is kicking off a statewide tour to further explain the Constitution Lobby and to invite all who want top be part of the Constitution Lobby for Connecticut., who see the need for much more government accountability, to join and become Constitutional monitors. The first meeting of the tour will take place at the Huntington Library 41 Church Street, Shelton, CT 06484, at 7PM on July 5.

Welcome to the We The People Of Connecticut Blog!

  I would first like to welcome you and thank you for checking this blog out. We are beginning an exciting chapter in citizen vigilance here in Connecticut and we are thrilled you are interested. This site will begin as a very basic tool that will allow you to find out exactly what is going on during the early stages of this organization's evolution. As we reach milestones and begin lobbying on behalf of the people of Connecticut and protecting our charters of freedom this will be the place to come to read about what is going on, in detail. During the early phases I will update this blog and the information on it a couple of time per week, however once we actually begin lobbying efforts I will update it as often as necessary to keep the members and readers fully informed as to our current activities. Our goal is for this to be the place where you will read about our activities first, before they are reported in any news outlet. This will be your most up to date source of information.

Thank you again for your interest and support.

William A. Heering
