Restore Our Constitution

Restore Our Constitution is a group of citizens that love our country! Our primary focus is the study of the founding of our country, our founding fathers, the Declaration and the Constitution. 


From time to time we share current news, information on local, state and national issues. On occasion we have guest speakers that talk on a broad rage of subjects. We are nonpartisan conservatives that love and support our founding documents to insure that America will continue to be a free and sovereign nation.



NOTE: ROC is not a political organization. We do not endorse candidates. Our meetings are for information purposes to provide a place for people to learn history, meet candidates, hear city, state and national topics discussed, however our primary focus is the history of our nation. 


Our constitution encourages an active and informed citizenry that is willing to educate yourself on issues, candidates, history and legislation to better serve your community. Citizens are encouraged to research issues, legislation and candidates on their own so they can make informed decisions on Election Day.

Representative Mary Miller with President Donald Trump.

Meet Mary Miller 
Candidate for the 15th Congressional District 

January 3 marks one year since I was sworn into the United States Congress, representing Illinois' 15th Congressional District. It has been an honor to serve you in 2021 and uphold the America First Agenda!

Throughout the week, I will be sending recaps of my first year in Congress. While there is already so much we have accomplished in just one year, we have only just begun!

In Congress, my number one priority is that my team and I provide the best constituent services possible to the people of Illinois' 15th Congressional District.

This last year, our office resolved over 460 cases and recovered over $5.5 million dollars for constituents including veterans who need help with VA issues, seniors who need assistance with Social Security or Medicare, farmers with questions for the USDA, and anyone who needs assistance with the IRS or federal agencies.

Editorial: Davis gets the primary challenge he deserves for abandoning core beliefs

Rep. Rodney Davis, R-Taylorville, now probably understands why his ambivalent loyalty to former President Donald Trump was a waste of time, energy and political capital. With the Party of Trump, there is no room for moderation or equivocation. Davis now finds himself “primaried,” or challenged in the 2022 primary by a fellow Republican who just won Trump’s endorsement. Davis gambled and lost, sticking with a president who represents everything the four-term Illinois congressman seems to abhor.

Kirk Allen and John Kraft; vets

saving their county


Someone sent us a link on Facebook about two veterans, Kirk Allen and John Kraft, who got tired of the corruption in their county, Edgar County, IL and decided that they’d do something about the local government which overspent into $79 million of debt for their 18,000 constituents. Allen and Kraft founded the Edgar County Watchdogs;

Through a combination of public pressure, Freedom of Information filings, lawsuits, and media exposure, they have created a system that deeply threatens Illinois’ corrupt, entrenched political establishment. They operate a blog called Illinois Leaks that exposes corruption at the state and local levels. The blog is so popular that, it is trusted more than the local paper.

Why We Need the Electoral College

RUSH:  Okay.  Let me recast this, and you correct me if I get anything wrong.  She has four kids, among them some Millennials -- old enough to be Millennials -- and they have been questioning the value of Electoral College. Why doesn't the popular vote matter? It seems like that ought to be the way we elect the president, not state by state.  They came up with an idea that we would apportion states like we do in primaries. In the Republican primary, if Trump wins a state, he gets whatever percentage of the delegates in that state according to the vote he got and so forth and so on. Because that would make every state count, you say.

Electoral College: Preserve or Abolish? 

Although groups like the League of Women Voters have long supported the abolition of the electoral college,1 the protracted proceedings in Florida as well as the apparent disparity between the popular and the electoral college vote have further fueled calls to abolish the electoral college. Critics urge a replacement of the electoral college with a straightforward nationwide popular vote system; and if needed, a national run-off between the top two candidates so that the winner will always receive an absolute majority of the popular vote.2An advocate of this plan, the Center for Voting and Democracy, explains:

Constitution Week September 17-23

Constitution Week is the commemoration of America's most important document. It is celebrated annually during the week of September 17-23.

The United States Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties, freedoms and inalienable rights.

This celebration of the Constitution was started by the Daughters of the American Revolution. In 1955, DAR petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The DAR has also erected a structure that is built in tribute to the Constitution of the United States. DAR Constitution Hall, which is a performing arts center, opened in 1929.

The aims of the Constitution Week celebration are to:

  • Emphasize citizens' responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution.
  • Inform people that the Constitution is the basis for America's great heritage and the foundation for our way of life.
  • Encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787.

HISTORY: David Barton's Black Robe Regiment

What is the Black Robe Regiment?

 

A Brief History by David Barton

 

The Black Robed Regiment was the name that the British placed on the courageous and patriotic American clergy during the Founding Era (a backhanded reference to the black robes they wore). [1] Significantly, the British blamed the Black Regiment for American Independence, [2] and rightfully so, for modern historians have documented that:

There is not a right asserted in the Declaration of Independence which had not been discussed by the New England clergy before 1763. READ MORE:

Rush Limbaugh Announces he has Stage IV lung cancer  

RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, this… This day has been one of the most difficult days in recent memory for me because I’ve known this moment was coming in the program today. Now, I’m sure that you all know by now, I really don’t like talking about myself, and I don’t like making things about me other than in the usual satirical, parodic, joking way.

I like this program to be about you and the things that matter to all of us. The one thing that I know that has happened over the 31-plus years of this program is that there has been an incredible bond that has developed between all of you and me. Now, this program’s 31 years old, and in that 31 years, there are people — you hear them call all the time — who have been listening the whole time. They’ve been listening 30 years or 25 years.

Rush Limbaugh, conservative talk radio pioneer, dead at 70 Limbaugh's death, following Stage IV lung cancer diagnosis, announced by family

WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 17, 2021 

By Brian Flood | Fox News


Rush Limbaugh, the monumentally influential media icon who transformed talk radio and politics in his decades behind the microphone, helping shape the modern-day Republican Party, died Wednesday morning at the age of 70 after a battle with lung cancer, his family announced.

Limbaugh's wife, Kathryn, made the announcement on his radio show. "Losing a loved one is terribly difficult, even more so when that loved one is larger than life," she said. "Rush will forever be the greatest of all time."

The radio icon learned he had Stage IV lung cancer in January 2020 and was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by then-President Trump at the State of the Union address days later. First lady Melania Trump then presented America’s highest civilian honor to Limbaugh in an emotional moment on the heels of his devastating cancer diagnosis.
