HCR 6 – New Hampshire Affirms States Rights

1 Comment

constitutionNew Hampshire is getting on the bandwagon and taking a stand against an intrusive, invasive, and downright despicable General Government that flaunts its power to change and re-interpret the Constitution of the United States of America at will.

HCR 6 declares in a nutshell, that any acts taken by the General Government not authorized by the Constititution of the United States of America, shall be construed as seizing the rights of the states, and shall thereby require a change in the General Government.

A RESOLUTION affirming States’ rights based on Jeffersonian principles.

Whereas the Constitution of the State of New Hampshire, Part 1, Article 7 declares that the people of this State have the sole and exclusive right of governing themselves as a free, sovereign, and independent State; and do, and forever hereafter shall, exercise and enjoy every power, jurisdiction, and right, pertaining thereto, which is not, or may not hereafter be, by them expressly delegated to the United States of America in congress assembled…

From the text of the bill:

[10 WHEREAS, The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United

11 States specifically provides that, “The powers not delegated to the

12 United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States,

13 are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”; and

14 WHEREAS, The Tenth Amendment defines the total scope of federal

15 power as being those powers specifically granted to it by the

16 Constitution of the United States and no more]

Many thanks to these representatives from Washington State:

Representatives Shea, Klippert, Condotta, Kretz, Anderson, McCune, Kristiansen

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We are finally seeing the states asserting themselves as more than just subjects of an ever growing and ever more illegal federal government.  Every state needs to be working to free itself from the grips of an ever expanding global monstrosity that masqerades as the federal government.

We all need to contact Washington state representatives and thank them for this monumental effort to halt the encroachments and overpowering actions of a government totally out of control

Corporate Attack on Buy America Shows Another Trade Model is Necessary!

Global Trade Watch from Public Citizen

 

Please call your senators and urge them to keep Buy America provisions in the stimulus bill.

 publiccitizen@mail.democracyinaction.org

The worst economic crisis in a generation. Lost jobs and homes. Crumbling roads and bridges. Congress knows it must take action to stimulate the economy. One key part of their plan is to create American jobs by investing in improving our country’s infrastructure.

But some in corporate America are trying to block the recovery. They are attacking “Buy America” proposals that direct some of the over $800 billion stimulus bill towards purchasing U.S.-made products for highway and other transit projects. These multinational corporations – among the nation’s worst chronic offshorers – have launched a misleading scare campaign, claiming that Congress’ decision to invest our tax dollars in our country violates World Trade Organization (WTO) rules.

Call your senators today and tell them you want a stimulus package that has broad Buy America provisions so this massive expenditure of our tax dollars creates jobs here.

Retrograde WTO rules do undermine lots of non-trade policy, and even some procurement policies. But using U.S. steel and iron in highway and transit projects has been U.S. policy for decades. Click here to find out why the corporate attack on Buy America is based on a lie.

As Lori Wallach and I argue in a column over at Huffington Post, the larger question raised by this brouhaha over Buy America is why there are any limits in a “trade” agreement on how a democratically elected legislature decides to spend taxpayer dollars when funding roads, bridges and projects at home.

Nations – not just the U.S., but all nations – should have a right to invest in themselves, spend their tax dollars according to the priorities set by their democratically elected officials, and pursue other public-interest policies. President Obama and the last two classes of freshmen members of Congress came to office on pledges to overhaul the failed globalization policies of the past. We need to make sure they translate those pledges into action and redo these overreaching trade deals.

But first, we need to make sure that the important Buy America terms are not the latest casualty in the corporate trade attack. Last week, the House passed a stimulus bill which gave preferences to U.S.-made iron and steel in transit projects and school buildings, and to U.S.-made uniforms for the Transportation Security Administration. The initial Senate version expands on some of these provisions.

The Senate could vote as soon as this week. Corporate opponents like General Electric, Caterpillar and the Chamber of Commerce are pushing to get the Buy America requirement removed from the bill.

Call your senators today and tell them to keep the Buy America provisions in the stimulus package so our tax dollars create jobs here. Then, tell a friend!

Thank you for all you do,
