There is a web site called Liberty Zone were they say the U.S. Constitution is defended. According to the web site a liberty zone is a concept to engage, local county citizens in defense of their freedoms and rights, their true constitutional liberties and rights from encroachment by lawless, unconstitutional powers of federal, state, or local governments and courts.

They go on to say that “everyone knows there is something terribly wrong with our governments, and that the problem is getting worse by the day. Many true patriots, and even many who haven’t even thought of themselves as “patriots,” are sick at heart at the unconstitutional lawlessness, greed and corruption taking place in our Republic, but are frustrated at what to do about it. Many join 33049_1thmvarious groups created to help educate people, and to begin to resist the growth of tyranny, which is a great thing to do, but this doesn’t address the real place change must take place… at out local, County level, and with the People. What can be done to unite citizens in towns, cities and counties across our great Republic”.

The site points out that the various Federal, State and Local governments have strayed far outside their authority and are unconstitutional in many actions. Unless The People stand up for the laws of the land and for the Constitution of the U.S.A., as it was intended and as “The People” expect it to be, our way of life is threatened and will cease to exist. There are millions of people across the country that belong to various groups that hold to these beliefs as well, but are so diluted at the local level that nothing can be done to effect grass root, local efforts.

They claim the solution is creating your local county, city or town as a “Liberty Zone” and is the start to bringing like-minded people together. Liberty Zones locally will be that focal point for individuals, irrespective of group affiliation, and allow our County citizens to support the varied missions of the many allies we all have in our varied groups. The ONLY way the People will secure their liberties is to stand together to defend the Constitution, both federal and state. More

Dear Americans,

Ronald Reagan understood that the Constitution given us by our Founders was one that trusted the people to govern themselves.

In his First Inaugural Address, Reagan said this:

From time to time, we have been tempted to believe that society has become too complex to be managed by self-rule, that government by an elite group is superior to government of, by, and for the people. But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden. The solutions we seek must be equitable, with no one group singled out to pay a higher price.

Ronald Reagan said above: “the solutions must be equitable”.  But I feel a need to add one thing and that is: the solutions must also be anchored in our Constitution and Founding Principles. More

Below is a video documenting page after page, section after section including line numbers, the intent of Obamacare.  It comes as no surprise that not only will we be paying for the health insurance for illegal immigrants, these people are exempt from individual taxes once Obamacare comes into full force.

Those of us approaching our senior years will be forced to make end of life plans that we may not want or agree with,  and will see our healthcare rationed and treatments decided by non-medical personnel who will decide what treatments will be available to us. 

Health care for everyone will be maximum 5,000 per individual and 10,000 per family per year.

Your financial and personal information will be available in real time to various agencies and individuals.  The government will now have direct access to your bank account and may electively remove funds from your account with no notice to you.  No explanation will be provided.  This is why direct deposit was mandated recently on all government checks.  Direct deposit is actually a record of where you bank and your account numbers.

Illinois Leads The Way in Peaceful Binding Contracts – No – Seriously

1 Comment

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2011 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

There is an interesting little Bill in (of all places) Illinois that proposes big changes to the way Construction is bid on and completed in the State.

HB 2987 is full of beautiful prose, heart stirring words and a load of crap everything good that is right with the world.  Minorities and Women will be “equal” from the burden of not being represented in the construction industry and PLA’s will abound throughout whilst bringing Illinois in line with Presidential Executive Order 13502.

If readers are not familiar with PEO 13502, be assured it must be great. After all it revokes Shrub2’s PEO which opened the door for competitive bidding on pretty much every Construction project that receives in any way federal funding (Tax Dollars). Of course not every American believes this is a good idea.

Governor Quinn apparently thought our Dear Leader was right on track because he issued Executive Order 3 (2010)

What exactly does Illinois EO3 say?

You might not have seen it reported, but the Senate will vote this morning on whether to repeal part of ObamaCare that it passed only months ago.

What Are They Thinking?

5 Comments

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Periodically I am forwarded an article with the question “What do you think?” Sometimes, a very few sometimes, I read through and think “Another stupid knee jerk reaction.” on the part of the author and go my merry way. After all, most of us get numerous emails concerning public policy and in reality besides pointing out the irony (or stupidity) our “trash overflowith” so to speak.

The more I considered this article, the more I began to consider that perhaps this topic deserved more than the traditional “delete key” motion – I hope to explain why. As usual one would hope that the reader would listen to my self-aware narcissistic ramblings (at least I am aware of my condition) until the end in which I will attempt to tie together the facts for digestion. I beseech thee to be Open Minded for these few words of discussion.

First and foremost I would pose these questions. What would you think if there was a Nationwide effort to teach safety, increase youngsters self-confidence, increase concentration through focus and empower our youth to become self-sufficient individuals? What if this program was Congressionally chartered in 1903, but was independent of governmental monies and therefore a non-political entity? What if this program sounded like a wonderful opportunity for individuals, young or old, to have the opportunity to participate in a group setting and become better members of society?

No matter if one is Liberal, Conservative, Democratic or Republican – I believe I am hearing those proverbial heads nodding. The above concept is in many ways the recent pronunciation of what we hope our future will hold. Family, security, hope……

Now before we all join hands and begin a rousing chorus of Kumbaya – let me place one more word out there.   Gun.

Hold on, don’t run just yet. Before the feared firearm reared it’s “ugly” head readers from all walks of life were just joined together in an almost unified dance of bi-partisan love. So give me a minute here.

The program I obliquely refer to is The Civilian Marksmanship Program. One finds the following information on their website:

The CMP was created by the U.S. Congress as part of the 1903 War Department Appropriations Act. The original purpose was to provide civilians an opportunity to learn and practice marksmanship skills so they would be skilled marksmen if later called on to serve in the U.S. military. Over the years the emphasis of the program shifted to focus on youth development through marksmanship. From 1916 until 1996 the CMP was administered by the U.S. Army. Title XVI of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1996 (Public Law 104-106, 10 February 1996) created the Corporation for the Promotion of Rifle Practice & Firearms Safety (CPRPFS) to take over administration and promotion of the CMP. The CPRPFS is a tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation that has been Federally chartered by the U.S. Congress, but is not an agency of the U.S. Government (Title 36, United States Code, Section 40701 et seq). Apart from a donation of surplus .22 and .30 caliber rifles in the Army’s inventory to the CMP, the CMP receives no Federal funding.

This is an organization that encourages not only good citizenship, but brings families together through the hands on training, safety and competition. These are good things. They help provide the training and tools to make us a safer community. Tools naturally have to include the gun. More

New CCC – Didn’t Work Last Time Either.

1 Comment

Vowing to find new ways to stimulate the sputtering economy, President Barack Obama will call for long-term investments in the nation’s roads, railways and runways that would cost at least $50 billion.

The infrastructure investments are one part of a package of targeted proposals the White House is expected to announce in hopes of jump-starting the economy ahead of the November election. Obama will outline the infrastructure proposal Monday at a Labor Day event in Milwaukee.

While the proposal calls for investments over six years, the White House said spending would be front-loaded with an initial $50 billion to help create jobs in the near future.

Funny how History rhymes when it is not repeating itself.  A “general” discussion on how the programs, edicts and Government measures did not work to pull the economy out of the Great Depression. A war was needed. Too bad we quit in Iraq and aren’t really at “war” in Afghanistan. More

S 510 : Testor Amendment Means Nothing

3 Comments

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

The Testor Amendment.  – It’ll free my direct sales to consumers. Or so the “opposition” to S. 510 seems to be saying now.

Once I started reading this,  “shock kept me up all night” would be an understatement.

Attempting to understand the logic behind the argument that somehow Legislators and AgriBusiness lobbyists are now “backing down” from the onerous control methods that have been written, fought for, and negotiated since the introduction of S. 510 in March of 2009 – I became even more confused.

Why suddenly would Sally Sunshine be allowed to sell her Strawberries to Safeway with no “involvement” under S 510?

The answer in short is she won’t. The “Grocery Store” will be required to keep records of Sally Sunshine. And in the event of “reasonable belief” or  “reasonable possibility” – Sally Sunshine is going down first.

The language is included here below (partial pages 122 and 123):

(G) GROCERY    STORES.—With    respect to a
17 sale of a food described in subparagraph (H) to
18 a grocery store, the Secretary shall not require
19 such grocery store to maintain records under
20 this subsection other than records documenting
21 the farm that was the source of such food.
The
22 Secretary shall not require that such records be
23 kept for more than 180 days.
24      (H) FARM     SALES TO CONSUMERS.—The
25 Secretary shall not require a farm to maintain
1       any distribution records under this subsection
2       with respect to a sale of a food described in

Are “Guaranteed Requirement Accounts” in Your Best Interest?

For the purposes of this satirical piece, one will need the following definitions to assist in decoding the secret methods of stripping away the populations nest egg.

SSA : Sorry Suckers All gone : Formerly known as Social Security Administration

AARP : Another Association Ripping off People : Formerly known as American Association of Retired People

GRA : Grab Retirement Assets  : Guaranteed Retirement Accounts

Introduced in the past have been Bills indicating that American Corporations are being irresponsible with their employees monetary investments (401K/IRA) and that the simple little American Folk need protecting from the big bad businesses. In order to do this, Administrations in the past have helped the under-informed idiots (us) by setting up programs that are designed to “help” us save for retirement. Seeing as the Federal Government has done such a fine job with the SSA program (never mind that for the first time since the overhaul in 1983 the program is in the red, is projected to be “less bad” and then recover nicely until it fails again in a few years) – history shows that another “assistance program” might not be such a great idea.

“While defined contribution plans have some strengths relative to defined benefit plans, participants in defined contribution plans bear the investment risk because there is no promise by the employer as to the adequacy of the account balance that will be available or the income stream that can be provided after retirement.” And furthermore, “The Agencies are considering whether it would be appropriate for them to take future steps for them to facilitate access to, and use of, lifetime income or other arrangements designed to provide a stream of income after retirement.”

We’ll just put that little data point at the back of our “unevolved-cannot-make-decisions-for-ourselves” brains until we work forward with this problem. More

Health Care Reform Has Passed : The Hikes Have Begun.

6 Comments

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Flashback: February 2009

The Obama administration and Poizner’s office were prompted to act after Anthem members with individual policies – those who are not covered through employer-sponsored or group plans – were told last week that they would have to pay premiums up to 39 percent higher than their current rates. The Woodland Hills (Los Angeles County) company would not say how many people will be affected, but Anthem has as many as 800,000 individual policyholders – more than any other for-profit insurer – in the state.

Obama reacts

President Obama appears to be using Anthem’s decision to increase rates to bolster efforts to revive the stalled health overhaul effort in Congress. In a CBS interview with Katie Couric on Sunday, Obama referred to Anthem’s hikes as a reason why reform is needed.

Today: Anthem Blue Cross is allowed to move ahead with rate hikes

California insurance regulators cleared the way Wednesday for Anthem Blue Cross to implement scaled-back rate hikes after a previous increase was canceled amid an uproar over its size. More

Imagine if you will an alternate universe. One where people, thousands of them, can disappear in a few weeks time. Well one Veteran doesn’t have to imagine, because he found out he apparently didn’t exist. At least not all of him…..

George Wincapaw thought he was getting some strange requests from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

The 63-year-old Vietnam War veteran had had several heart attacks since leaving the Navy, submitting enough paperwork on them to amass a two-volume file at the Veterans Benefits Administration office. But in response to his most recent claim, submitted earlier this year, the office was requesting copies of medical records Wincapaw had already submitted.

Curious, he traveled from his home in Oconomowoc to the VA regional offices in Milwaukee to look at his medical file. What he found shocked him.

He wasn’t providing duplicates. Dozens of his medical records were missing.

Then the public contact representative with whom he was reviewing his file broke the news: An employee had been fired from the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Wincapaw’s representative agency, for destroying veterans’ records.

An official with the state VFW, which handles thousands of such cases a year, told Public Investigator the employee had shredded nearly all its veterans files – no one knows how many – after making a unilateral decision to go “paperless. More

Is It Time In Virgina?

Most Friday nights people head on over to Jimmy’s Old Time Tavern to take in the “local flavor” according to the bloated heavy text website “Virginia Living” just beggin’ y’all to come see this little suburb of D.C.

Before one considers this fun little jaunt, reflection upon how Virgina’s obscure little rules concerning Tavern behavior might affect the patrons and employees is in order.

1. You might be pulled out of Jimmy’s to prove your sobriety at whim. Apparently this popular practice began in 2003. After all, pulling patrons out of a Tavern looking for someone intoxicated instead of actually following them on the highway where they might be driving drunk is such a good plan.

As the designated driver in her dinner party, Pat Habib was careful to consume no more than one alcoholic drink and follow it up with two sodas.

So she was shocked when a police officer singled her out of the crowd at Jimmy’s Old Town Tavern in Herndon and asked her to step outside to prove her sobriety. After she ran through the alphabet without pause, the Fairfax County police officer let her go and explained police had received a complaint about an unruly blond woman matching her description. Then she watched as police tested other women looking nothing like her. More

The Dirty Little Secret of H.R. 1586 “FAA Air Transportation Modernization and Safety Improvement Act”

7 Comments

Lynn Swearingen (c) copyright 2010 ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

Follow me here for a moment and learn the dirty little secret of H.R. 1586.

Normally one would think that the righteously titled H.R. 1586 recently passed and signed into law August 19, 2010 by Mr. Obama would at least have something to do with the bloated title that it received, but alas it does not. The original stated purpose in March of 2009 (17 months ago) was:

An act to modernize the air traffic control system, improve the safety, reliability, and availability of transportation by air in the United States, provide for modernization of the air traffic control system, reauthorize the Federal Aviation Administration, and for other purposes.

The American Public can be sure that Representative Rangel (where have we heard that name recently?) wouldn’t introduce a Bill that has nothing to do with the title, now how could he “ethically” do that? After all, here is the man who was so upset about the upcoming War in Iraq that he introduced a “You Elitist SOBs Send Your Own Family Into Active Duty Act” (i.e. proposed a new draft beginning in 2003 continued ’04, ’06, ’07, ’10). Among his statements:

I first introduced legislation mandating military or national service for our youth during the lead up to the Iraq War, convinced that if the sons and daughters of Congress were doing the fighting, we might think twice about authorizing it. But I also felt it was time that all Americans, including the wealthy, be given the opportunity to prove their patriotism. All young people ought to make a contribution to the country. More

Illegal Immigration and Animal Identification : Linked Through Policy If Not Practice

One of the only consistent issues with the current Administration is that their inconsistency keeps one off balance. It is difficult to “know your enemy” if the Rules of Engagement keep migrating.

In line with the plot contained within George Orwell’s Animal Farm, a community is formed based on “freedom for all theory”. Slowly through manipulation of the rules by the “rulers”, enforcers bring to bear unendurable suffering to ensure the “good of all” through the protectionism of the ruling class. When said rulers make errors or mistakes in planning, either the previous rulers are blamed or a mystical outside force is pinpointed as the cause of the faulty administrations failure. In a twist of fate even more damming is the eventual piecing off (or actual sale) of the less powerful members of the ruling party to sustain the greed or power held by the despots. Sound familiar yet? More

Recently a friend sent me an article about a Wisconsin politician who was apparently unaware of the location of the great state of Arizona. After considering what this really meant (instead of taking for granted that the apparently this individual is willing like the majority of politicians to jump on whatever hot topic political bandwagon happens by), I wondered how one could not be aware of the fact that Arizona does share a border with Mexico and does have a small immigration issue with undocumented illegal non-certified “people of Geographically challenged birth events”.

Some Voters Should Be More Equal Because They Are Perceived As Unequal?

Something interesting has developed in a sleepy little suburb of New York City. Apparently the concept of “One Person. One Vote” has disenfranchised a minority population. Said minority has been unable to elect one of their “own” into a 13 panel Board of Trustee position. Therefore, a brilliant concept was proposed “Every one shall have 6 votes to cast among the 13 candidates.”

The court-imposed election was held after a federal judge ruled that Port Chester’s conventional at-large trustee elections violated the Voting Rights Act. Although the village of about 30,000 residents is nearly half Hispanic, no Latino had ever been elected to any of the six trustee seats. Most voters were white, and white candidates always won. More

Midwest Hazmat Spill Alert

Something quite frightening happened this morning at a yet undisclosed location of the Midwest United States. Notification was received of yet another oil containing fluid spill which is governed under the FDA (Foolish Damn Arrogance) arm of our Government.  The spill, while extremely small, has not yet been exempted from the current FDA rules and therefore the consequences could be devastating.

A liquid substance containing the following ingredients was inadvertently dispersed on a surface containing cementation materials such as fly ash  and slag cement, aggregate possibly containing a coarse aggregate made of gravels or crushed rocks such as limestone, or granite, plus a fine aggregate such as sand), water, and chemical admixtures.

The Death of the Republic Revisited – Part III

Leave a comment

Gary Rea (c)copyright 2010 All Rights Reserved

____________________________________

In The Death of the Republic Revisited, I covered the constitutional loopholes that gave Congress the power to decide the powers of the Supreme Court and the federal court system, and how this lead to the most abusive – and untouchable – of the three branches of our government. In The Death of the Republic Revisited – Part II, I covered the constitutional loopholes that have allowed Congress several means of escaping any real checks by the Judicial Branch or the Executive Branch. Now, I turn my attention to the constitutional loopholes that have allowed the Executive Branch to be become dictatorial.

Aiding the Congress’ ability to make the Judiciary untouchable is the President’s sole power to appoint Supreme Court justices for life. The only check on this ability lies with the Senate, which has the right of review of any appointees. As we’ve seen in recent years, however, collusion between the Senate and the President render this so-called “check” a joke. Again, as I said in my previous articles, the federal government’s three branches work in concert as a single symbiotic entity. In other words, there are no real “checks and balances” at all. If the President and the Senate have a vested interest in a particular appointee to the court, there is no means for the House of Representatives, the states, or the people to stop the appointment and, once made, there is no power in any of the branches – not even the Executive – to remove a justice except by impeachment for criminal offenses. This has rarely happened in the 223 years since the Constitution created the three branches.

As mentioned in Part II, the Congress is empowered to use treaties to make U.S. citizens subject to foreign laws. The President, also, possesses this power, in concert with Congress, and one of the worst recent offenders was President Bill Clinton, who used his treaty-signing powers frequently to cede U.S. sovereignty to the United Nations, the World Bank, the IMF and the World Court. This has been continued by Presidents Bush and Obama.

But, the main loophole in the Constitution – which was deliberately placed there by the Federalists, many of whom desired to make the President a monarch – that gives the President unchecked dictatorial powers is his sole ability to create Executive Orders and “signing statements.”

The power of the President to make Executive Orders is exclusively limited to the Executive Branch, as the term implies. Neither the Judiciary nor the Legislative branches are empowered to rescind or repeal an Executive Order. Effectively, the President may create new law in this manner, in direct violation of the Legislative Branch’s supposed monopoly on law-creation. Once signed by the President, an Executive Order has the full force of law without any approval by Congress.

Furthermore, the President may use his Executive Order power to not only create new law, but to effectively negate existing laws that have been created by Congress. In fact – and this is the most dangerous aspect of Executive Orders – the President may override the Constitution, itself, the very document that gives him these powers, this is all by the Federalists’ design!

The power of the Executive Order can be used for good or ill, depending upon the particular motives and whims of a sitting President. An example of the “good” would be President John F. Kennedy’s Executive Order 11110, which would have effectively abolished the Federal Reserve, thus ending the international banking cartel’s stranglehold upon our government.

The trouble has been that very few Executive Orders have been of the “good” variety and most – especially those created by recent Presidents – have been thoroughly tyrannical. A few cases in point are:

Executive Order 12148: Created FEMA

Executive Order 10990: Allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.

Executive Order 10995: Allows the government to seize and control the communication media.

Executive Order 10997: Allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.

Executive Order 10998: Allows the government to take over all food resources and farms

Executive Order 11000: Allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision

Executive Order 11011: Allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions

Executive Order 11002: Designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons

Executive Order 11003: Allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft

Executive Order 11004: Allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.

Executive Order 11005: Allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities

Executive Order 11051: Specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.

Executive Order 11310: Grants authority to the Department of Justice and enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.

Executive Order 11049: Assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period. allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanism of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in US financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months. The Federal Emergency Management Agency has broad powers in every aspect of the nation.

This is only a partial listing of some of the Executive Orders that directly affect the freedoms and liberties of all citizens and which, effectively, make the President a dictator.

The Answer is No. The Time is Now

If I had the opportunity to sit in each living room of America, this would be the conversation I would have with each individual who believe they have no power.

America – why are we making this so difficult? The endless discussion, the banter back and forth, the reconciliation game being played in Washington, D.C., Republican, Democrats, Constitutionality?

The answer, though simple, is quite clear once the muck is removed from the discussion. No. Polite, firm and insistent. “No Thank you Mr. Republicrat. The answer to Health Care Reform is No. The answer to an increase in Taxes? No.”  Not a qualified maybe, not a “wait and see”, the answer is No.

Can one not see the return of the Republican’s to the discussion is no more than their attempt to grab what little power and money not already jingling in the pockets of the Democrats? The call sweeping the Nation now  is – “The Vote in 2010 is going to wipe out the corruption in Washington, by replacing the Democrats with Republicans.” Do you really believe that?

I say the answer is No.   No incumbents.   Each and every one of them has contributed to the conflagration that currently abides in this Nation. If you truly believe that through the election process a single one is going to carry through for your wants or needs, take the blinders off and open your eyes.

The only path to the return to simple Government of the People By the People is the People.

Not promises, additional Regulatory Practices, endless debate or bargaining. More

An Idea To Express Your Displeasure Over Health Care Bill

1 Comment

U.S. Dime

If one is upset over the Recent Vote on Health Care, Kevin “Coach” Collins has a pretty good idea today on the Collins Report.

“Stupak lied!

In the dust and fury of the past few days the brazenly cynical Mr. Stupak showed his middle finger to you. On Friday afternoon when it was sure to be lost in the noise, Stupak announced his price and it was a rather cheap one befitting the character of the man himself. His envelop held just $726,409 for improving three airports in his district. So there you have it, you were suckered.

Giving Judas what he deserves

Now it’s our turn to “slip a little something” to this sticky fingered Judas.

Since he’ll now be in a tough re-election fight he’ll need donations. I will be sending him my contribution of thirty dimes which will serve as the 30 pieces of silver his model settled for…”

Mr. Collins application is for a different reason than my own – I truly believe that the entire Health Care Bill is a massive spending bill disguised to destroy the very fabric of our Social and Economic Structure, however one can find much more eloquent dissertations elsewhere. I tend to be more straight forward and the concept of expressing my displeasure leans to the literal.

I will be sending my 30 dimes to my state Legislator who sold out at the last moment. Who knows why he chose to. As far as I know there is no big massive monetary reward waiting in the wings here.

I haven’t decided what message to include to ensure he understands. Perhaps

“It may be my obligation to forgive you for your treasonous actions, however you can ensure I will never forget. Spend this well Sir. Your opponent will be receiving 100 fold for his/her campaign.”

If one does choose to do express their displeasure, please do not forget to send dimes that were minted after 1965. Ones minted pre ’65 actually were made of silver and are worth more than a dime. Save your coins for trade if need be when the Dollar becomes useful for visits to the Lavatory versus the local big box store.

Michigan:“Firearms Freedom Act” (HB-5232)

National Expositor

Tenth Amendment Center – Introduced in the Michigan House on August 11, 2009, the “Firearms Freedom Act” (HB-5232) seeks “to make certain findings regarding intrastate commerce; to prohibit federal regulation of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition involved purely in intrastate commerce in [the State of Michigan]; to provide for certain exceptions to federal regulation; and to establish certain manufacturing requirements.”

The bill was authored by Rep. Phillip Pavlov and currently has 44 co-sponsors.

While the HB5232’s title focuses on federal gun regulations, it has far more to do with the 10th Amendment’s limit on the power of the federal government.  It specifically states:

The regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the states under amendments IX and X of the constitution of the United States, particularly if not expressly preempted by federal law. Congress has not expressly preempted state regulation of intrastate commerce pertaining to the manufacture on an intrastate basis of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition. More

OBAMACARE NULLIFICATION: VIRGINIA HEALTHCARE FREEDOM ACT

VIRGINIA DID IT!  NULLIFICATION OF HEALTHCARE ACT!
The Virginia Healthcare Freedom Act Wins in Both Houses. Twenty-four hundred citizen grassroots activists made their voices heard at the state capitol bell tower on January 18th and the Virginia legislature listened.

Even before Obamacare is made federal law, the Virginia House and Senate has voted to stand up to the powers of Congress to mandate that every citizen purchase federally approved health care coverage.

Senator Jill Vogel’s SB417 passed on the House floor moments ago with a vote of 66 – 29. We expect Governor McDonnell will sign the Virginia Healthcare Freedom Act into law the moment it crosses his desk.

The House version, HB10, was passed by the full House yesterday by a vote of 72 – 26. The bill is on it’s way to the Senate where it is expected to pass with bi-partisan support. But regardless, Virginia will not have to comply with federal mandates to purchase health care insurance once Governor McDonnell signs SB417, and likely HB10, into law.

Under Obamacare, if you file your tax return and fail to offer proof that you have a policy that puts you in compliance with the law, the IRS will try to penalize you, possibly by garnishing your state tax refund. If you live in Virginia, you will have the Commonwealth in your corner. Virginia’s Attorney General has vowed to challenge the feds in court should any citizen of Virginia be penalized for not purchasing federally approved health care insurance. This legislation also opens up a test case that could get ObamaCare thrown out by the U.S. Supreme Court.

We have effectively reaffirmed our position that it is “we the people” that set the course for this nation. Governments are instituted by the governed and will not be usurped on our watch.

The Virginia 10th Amendment Revolution is victorious in winning back our state’s rights!!!

Yours in liberty,
