COMMITTEES OF CORRESPONDENCE

WE HAVE BEEN ASKED TO CREATE A "COMMITTEE OF CORRESPONDENCE" FOR OUR WEB PAGE.

THE PURPOSE OF THIS ADDITION TO OUR PAGE IS TO PROVIDE INDIVIDUALS WITH THE OPPORTUNITY TO PARTICIPATE IN SUBMITTING CORRESPONDENCE AND FOR REASONS KNOWN TO THEM WISH TO REMAIN "ANONYMOUS."

IF YOU WISH TO SUBMIT LETTERS OR COMMENTARIES FOR THIS PART OF OUR PAGE - PLEASE SUBMIT TO THE SWEENEYS "WITH YOUR ROMAN NAME" AND WE WILL POST TO OUR PAGE UNDER "COMMITTEES OF CORRESPONDENCE."

WE ARE INFORMED THAT THE "COMMITTEES OF CORRESPONDENCE" WERE FORMED IN THE 1770'S TO ALERT THE CITIZENRY OF THE IMPERIAL ABUSES OF KING GEORGE III AND HIS AGENTS. OVER TWO HUNDRED YEARS AFTER CREATING A FEDERAL REPUBLIC, THE TAINT OF IMPERIAL ABUSE IS BACK. WE GAVE SPECIFIC POWERS TO A FEDERAL GOVERNMENT AND RESERVED THE REMAINDER TO THE STATES, OR TO THE PEOPLE.

WE INTEND TO REMAIN CONSISTENT WITH THE HISTORICAL USE OF "COMMITTEES OF CORRESPONDENCE" WHICH IS TO DISTRIBUTE WIDELY ANONYMOUS VIEWS OF CONCERNED CITIZENS.
