Santelli's Rant

This rant kicked off a movement, today in many cities around America, Citizens are staging "Tea Parties" to protest the gross negligence of the elected officials in Washington and in many state government that think that they can spend all the money that they want to and not be accountable to the population. THIS HABIT MUST CHANGE, today is just a start.

I will be attending the tea party at Tempe Town Lake today and will report back here tonight.

If you are not willing to stand up for what you believe, you will fall for anything.

America Again Resolves

Sorry, there is no paraphrasing this, you should all read every word and if you agree the the governments both state and federal are out of control, pass this along to all other citizen patriots.

America Again!

A Declaration

Whereas We the People of these 50 States of America were the creators of the Constitution for the united States of America; and
Whereas the three branches of federal government are creatures — things created by us in the U.S. Constitution; and
Whereas the national Constitution is the highest and most basic Law of the Land throughout this Republic so uniquely blessed by God among all nations; and

Whereas it is the sworn duty of all members of the U.S. Congress, and of every U.S. administration, and of the U.S. federal judiciary, to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution for the united States of America; and

Whereas in that Constitution, We the People clearly enumerated and limited the powers of the federal government and retained any powers not specifically enumerated therein, to ourselves and our sovereign States, and any exercise of power by federal government beyond those listed powers is a violation of the highest law in America, which law has been repeatedly violated by politicians and presidents for 148 years in America, through many wars and attacks on the People of America and of other lands, such violence being the economic engine of wicked men throughout history; and

Whereas President Jefferson said that “in questions of powers...let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution”; and

Whereas such “binding down” can only be peaceably effected by binding the federal purse- for its present $3 trillion annual revenues have spawned a brood of corruptions, as unlimited sums of money have always done. This ocean of D.C. cash has birthed limitless unconstitutional federal powers, departments, agencies, agents, programs, projects, offices, and regulations that now threaten America’s future, our liberties and property, the U.S. Constitution itself, and the peoples of many foreign lands; and
Whereas Mr. Jefferson also said, with respect to this precise lawlessness that We the People are suffering on every hand from federal usurpation today, that
"if those who administer the general government be permitted to transgress the limits fixed by that compact, by a total disregard to the special delegations of power therein contained, annihilation of the state governments, and the erection upon their ruins, of a general consolidated government, will be the inevitable consequence...the principle...that the general government is the exclusive judge of the extent of the powers delegated to it [is] nothing short of despotism...since the discretion of those who adminster the government, and not the constitution, would be the measure of their powers...[T]he several States who formed that instrument, being sovereign and independent, have the unquestionable right to judge of its infraction... nullification by those sovereignties, of all unauthorized acts done under colour of that instrument, is the rightful remedy..."

Whereas such nullification as referred to by President Jefferson must be effected not by political pressure alone (which has proven useless against the march of federal corruption and usurpation for 150 years) but by new legislation rescinding all such violations of the U.S. Constitution; and
Whereas We the People have learned over generations that such legislation will never make it through the halls of the corrupted Congress without our courts of the several States adding a very real threat of incarceration and loss of assets for any such corrupt violators of these many laws; and
Whereas there exists no principle in Western law, and no principle of public law or equity generally, prohibiting or preempting We the People and our sovereign States -- the creator parties of the judicial courts of the federal government -- from claiming jurisdiction in such cases of infamous, perennial usurpation and tyranny by our members of Congress and by the federal courts that have for too long protected such crimes and usurpations from any repair or reformation by the aggreived People or States; and
Whereas the present socialist changes dumped rashly on the American people by the feckless, complicit U.S. Congress and having to do with the corrupt banking and credit industries and the stock market casino cannot restore equity or health to the American economy; and
Whereas the underlying fraud and insider dealing in the banking, credit, insurance, and mortgage industries were facilitated and defended by a series of corrupt Congresses both by passing the current illicit, unconstitutional laws and by most members of these corrupt Congresses failing to represent their constituents in these 50 States of America, instead colluding with, defending, and in many cases positively shilling for individual players and companies within those corrupt industries; and
Whereas even more egregious crimes than said collusion and fraud has been, and is being, perpetrated by members of the U.S. Congress specifically in violation of the monetary clauses found in the U.S. Constitution -- which violations must be immediately halted and specifically outlawed; and

Whereas the illegal manufacture of our currency by a private corporation, to which we are forced to pay the face value, plus interest! when no private entity can lawfully manufacture United States currency under the U.S. Constitution; and

Whereas following the money as any investigator must do in seeking out a criminal, We the People hearken to the voices of countless former presidents, congressmen, and statesmen and realise that this illegal, immoral Money Power has ravaged our economy and our families for generations, causing untold hardship for all citizens, while making untold riches for a few in the corrupt financial industry as well as the corrupt politicians, bureaucrats, and lobbyists whom they own; and
Whereas the U.S. Congress was granted by us the sole responsibility to pass laws on federal tax assessment, collection, and enforcement, but the Internal Revenue Service has repeatedly violated those laws with the full knowledge, consent, and collusion of the U.S. Congress; and
Whereas the federal government, in all three branches, is coercing the productive citizens ('Taxpayers') of these united States of America to live as slaves and virtual pack-mules, to carry the burdens and pay for the crimes of the government and the elite in these corrupt industries; and
Whereas the U.S. Congress, administration, and federal courts are now colluding with the Internal Revenue Service, in order to keep the trillions flowing each year, essentially operating a state-sponsored terrorist organization as that term was defined by President George W. Bush in Executive Order 13224, “Terrorism: an activity that… involves a violent act or an act dangerous to human… and...appears to be intimidate or coerce a civilian population…”; and
Whereas this state-sponsored terrorism has continued for decades with consent and collaboration of a succession of corrupt Congresses and administrations even after every member of Congress and successive administrations have been hand-delivered extensive packages of evidence that the IRS has been violating the law while calling its actions ‘Code enforcement’ — a shameless breach of public trust as witnessed in corrupt banana republics; and
Whereas these things are corroborated by former IRS fraud examiner Sherry Jackson, former IRS attorney Paul Chappell, former IRS –CID enforcement agent Joe Banister, and former agents Clifton Beale and John Turner — all of whom are now spokesmen against current Congressional and IRS fraud and in favor of Tax Honesty; and
Whereas these former IRS employees agree with the estimated 67 million American non-filers including law-abiding Nontaxpayers who assert that IRS has been unable to show any section of law making the average person living and working in the 50 States liable for keeping records, filing IRS forms, or paying federal income tax; and
Whereas Historian of the IRS Shelley L. Davis testified before the U.S. Senate in September 1997 suggesting that the IRS daily violates laws, and operates as though it is above the law; and
Whereas Tax Honesty can restrict federal revenue sources to lawful sources — import duties, federal excise taxes, import tariffs, taxes on corporate profits and other taxable activities listed in the Tax Code, taking more than a trillion dollars per year out of the federal hog-trough which has spawned countless burdens on the citizens' lives and greatly reducing today's $7.4 billion per day torrent of cash, the corrupting equivalent of 10,800 major drug cartels; and
Whereas such Tax Honesty would transform the average American household's personal economics, helping millions of Americans to keep their homes and pay their bills rather than feed crooks in Congress who have long worked for lobbyists in the banking and credit industries; and
Whereas such Tax Honesty would de-fund countless illegal arrogations, powers, departments, and offices and greatly diminish the heavy hand of D.C. corruption on the average American family; and
Whereas We the People of these 50 sovereign States will never allow Congress to burden us or our future generations with an equally-corrupt “revenue neutral” alternative plan to milk the productive segment of the Republic — such as a national sales tax or a flat tax plan; instead we demand that elected representatives show new respect for the Constitution by allowing reduced revenues to limit Washington D.C. to its enumerated powers — and thus limit the potential for corruption; and

Whereas President George Washington said that “Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the American people's liberty teeth and keystone under independence. . . The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference; they deserve a place of honor with all that's good. . .A free people ought to be armed”;

Whereas the only form of "homeland security" authorized -- indeed demanded -- in the Constitution is the organized Militias of the Several States, in local muster and assembly as laid out in detail by constitutional scholar Edwin Vieira, Jr in his book, "Constitutional Homeland Security Volume I"; and
Whereas We the People are now taking it upon ourselves to exercise lawful, peaceful, constitutional, organized self-government exactly in line with the Constitution by merely enforcing our Constitution for these United States, for the first time in two centuries;
Therefore, after our long-term failure to discharge our citizen duties (bearing the cost of our abdication on every hand), We the People of these fifty sovereign and very united States, demand that those we sent to serve us in the U.S. House of Representatives and in the U.S. Senate:

1) Pass legislation repealing the patently unconstitutional Presidential War Powers Act, which violates the delegation of war powers in Art. I, Sec. 8 of the Constitution and has allowed American presidents to act as unchecked military tyrants around the world while allowing Congress to abdicate its deliberative role before sending America’s military to kill and maim people of other lands (many of whom have been innocent non-combatants) although they caused no demonstrable threat to We the People or our States but only to commercial interests; and

2) Pass legislation that:

A) Acknowledges the 4th Amendment privacy in the American people’s own persons, houses, papers, communications, and effects from any and all government surveillance, seizure, or detainment unless preceded by issuance of a specific, bona fide warrant issued on probable cause;

B) Announces Congress’s intention to refuse to fund (or continue to fund) any Executive Order or armed federal action, such as Department of Homeland Security, that violates the executive powers in the Constitution and threatens liberty by creating a coercive federal police-state;

C) Makes illegal any organization, department, or federal action to endanger or blur America’s sovereign status among the nations of the world;

D) Rescinds all portions of the USA Patriot Acts that violate the liberty and privacy of an American until a warrant is issued upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation and particularly describing the place to be searched and the persons or things to be seized;

E) Makes clear that any future federal effort that violates the 4th and/or 6th Amendments is null and void;

F) Makes illegal any electronic or biometric tracking of any law-abiding citizen of these 50 States, or any federal government program of biometric or electronic tracking of domestic animals within any of the 50 States; and

3) Pass legislation currently in draft form including all of the substantive provisions found in the Monetary Reform Act prepared by Stephen Zarlenga and the American Monetary Institute, which legislation publicly acknowledges that manufacture of American currency by the Federal Reserve bank cartel violates Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution; publicly acknowledges that We the People granted power to coin currency only to Congress; repeals the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Act and makes illegal any new issue of Federal Reserve currency; restores confidence in and governmental control over America’s currency and credit; stabilizes the money supply and price level; establishes full reserve banking and prohibits fractional reserve banking; retires the national debt and repeals conflicting Acts regarding U.S. money and banking; withdraws the United States banking system from international banks, and restores federal government accountability for monetary policy, removing the causes of economic depressions without any additional taxation, inflation or deflation; and

4) Pass legislation directing IRS to immediately cease the fraudulent application of the Tax Code and immediately release all federal prisoners being held on “failure to file” or similarly unsubstantiated charges; and

5) Pass legislation making illegal any federal taking or federal use restriction of private land, and/or of water, minerals, or other God-given resources in, on, or under said private land in any of the 50 States; and

6) Pass legislation making illegal any new federal burden, restriction, registration, regulation, tracking, or other impediment on ownership and use of firearms and other military-grade weaponry by law-abiding Americans for self-defense or defense of family and property against any attacker, thief, or enemy force that should present any unlawful threat to life or liberty — whether said enemy be civilian or military, foreign or domestic — as was the manifest intent of the 2nd Amendment; and
7) Repeal the 17th Amendment, restoring the original design for this constitutional foedus of Sovereign States with our sovereign legislatures, which representative bodies, in electing their two representatives in the U.S. Senate, enhance the political leverage of the States over a federal plebescite that has been abused repeatedly since the passage of that amendment; and
8) De-fund and dismantle the U.S. Department of Education and any other federal program, power, regulation, or inhibition of the education of our own children. The federal power has neither the authorisation nor the ethical right to involve itself in how we raise our children, nor to instruct our Sovereign States in such matters because our State government also has no business in training children in America.

After almost 150 years of increasing federal abuse and arrogation of power, We the People and our 50 States have thought ourselves powerless. The federal power has amassed its limitless ocean of cash coerced by threat of force from our honest labor, and certainly by no voluntary scheme of taxation at all -- plunging us into a worse condition of servitude than that which We the People endured under George III and the British Parliament.

Now, with a gargantuan military subculture and a military-industrial complex (about which President Eisenhower warned us) at its sides, this federal power is our Frankenstein's monster, a veritable D.C. al-Qaeda that holds us -- the People and our sovereign States -- as terror-stricken hostages with no say in life or death or multi-trillion-dollar rackings of the economy. Rather than its constitutional creators, We the People and Sovereign States of America, have acted as miserable creatures bereft of hope.
But no more. We the People of these States of America do here declare our resolve to enforce the foundational Law of the Land by which we gave birth to the national government, and under which we retained all powers not enumerated to the federal power.

We declare our resolve to bind the purse-strings of that government as required, yet shall not bar any fellow American from volunteering his wages to Congress' IRS scheme if desired.
We hereby notify each and every one of our 535 elected federal representatives that his/her attendance is demanded (but not expected) on the 4th of July next, at 4 o’clock in the afternoon, for an Independence Day celebration sponsored by local student and adult members of the Citizens’ Homeland Security Associations, pursuant to organizing our respective areas’ State Militias once more, as the Constitution guarantees.
These annual festivities and public observances shall begin with a public reading of this Declaration as annually amended by the People; a Congressional report card, if you will, on our representative. This reading shall take place at the Main Public Library (or as otherwise announced in the local media) in the city or town being the seat of the particular member of Congress’ district. That reading shall be followed by patriotic and festive fireworks display and refreshments at the city park or other announced location.
The member’s record since taking office shall speak for itself. Yet We the People do agree to offer the member immunity under one condition alone: that (s)he will in writing, with witnesses, repent his/her record of support for and/or acquiescence in, the countless egregious violations of the Law of the Land and will sponsor or co-sponsor such legislation as is herein mentioned, without material amendment and only as reviewed and approved by his/her Citizens' Homeland Security Association and local constituency after allowing the People sufficient time for said review.

Given the present state of affairs, and the numerous powerful, nefarious players and lobbyists controlling the actions and legislation of Congress, We the People demand a restoration of our rightful perogatives of self-government. Armed in our own homes and backed by the courts of our Sovereign States, each U.S. senator and congressman will now be held fully to account for fraud, conspiracy, racketeering, and a long list of abuses spanning generations.

Decades of deepening corruption teach us that there are only two ways that We the People can now trust a politician: if (s)he openly, in writing, joins the People’s resolve to preserve, protect, and defend the U.S. Constitution as (s)he is sworn to do; or if (s)he is serving a sufficient number of years in a State Penitentiary after having been stripped of the emoluments of crime in high office.

We the People of America don't care what the Europeans do; we have distinct histories and governments from theirs. Neither do we cringe at the people of China or Russia; and even the dreaded Islamic menace, so called, does not frighten us. Most Americans trust God's decrees for our future. What we do NOT trust is politicians and bureaucrats, and the corporate cabal who have owned them since Lincoln's time.

Most of us Americans are not military mothers, cheering for "our warriors" across the world in other people's living rooms. Most of our sons and daughters are simply ignorant of American history, having attended government schools. The average American sees no crying need to police or develop the rest of the world. We hold out a hand to our friends among every people on earth who seek liberty and truth. At this hour, America's most mortal enemies are domestic, as our founders warned us would be the case. Our own politicians and police are now not to be trusted. We the People are determined to set things right, so help us God.
Should our member of Congress refuse to agree, in writing, to cease violating the law; should (s)he prevaricate, obfuscate, or bloviate as politicians so often do, rather than give clear, concise answers — or should (s)he return to his/her seat of power to conspire anew with like-minded scoundrels (or with oligarchs and corporate powers who own his first allegiance) to defend the criminal status quo, We the People do hereby express our solemn resolve to gain his/her criminal indictment and conviction for fraud, racketeering, and conspiracy — not under the federal laws that Congress employed against the relatively miniscule corruption of Enron or Worldcomm executives, but under the criminal laws of his or her State, with multi-count, multi-trillion-dollar indictments handed down by his/her local State Grand Jury.
Should any of our State district attorneys or judge(s) fail to see the gravity of these crimes and/or refuse by complicity or fecklessness to oversee justice under the U.S. Constitution, We the People hereby resolve to seat replacements who WILL respect the Rule of Law; who will recognise the rights and the DUTIES of these Fifty Sovereign States of this American republic, to enforce the terms of the U.S. Constitution against corrupt federal actors, without further delay.
We the People do resolve that in such cases, we shall seek the longest possible State Prison terms and financial penalties; for multi-trillion-dollar fraud as with any other international crime of that magnitude, we will seek seizure of all wealth and properties held under the politician's name, or held in trust under any structure whatsoever, in any jurisdiction in the world whatsoever, inuring to the benefit of the member or his/her family or descendants.
This citizens’ effort, called America Again! has been conceived not by politicians or special interests, but by everyday People of these 50 States, to illustrate how blessed we are to have our federal Constitution, warts and all.

We hope to prove to a watching world that even while national and international forces of greed and corruption seek to sunder our constitutional republic, that a diligent minority of citizens can help to restore liberty and lawful self-government. Arming ourselves with faith in God, we will enforce the Law of the Land laid down by our fathers. We will back up our efforts with a town-by-town display of citizen resolve, keeping and maintaining military-grade weaponry in our homes as intended by the founders, and proving that under our Constitution, the normal citizens, rather than jack-booted police or paramilitary troops, are America's lawful design for social order.
By their response to this citizen enforcement action of the U.S. Constitution that they have so long violated, members of the Congress of our States shall now demonstrate to the world their repentant statesmanship and fidelity, or their ignominious corruption.
We citizens of these 50 sovereign States of America do consecrate this first annual effort to restore American self-government on this Independence Day, 2009. May God bless this formerly godly Republic, that we may live to be America Again!

The government bailed out Wall Street executives, homeowners, and struggling auto companies. But what about the rest of America?

A pretty funny video...


This is America, Like it or Leave it

Vietnow Veterans By Airforce Veteran Barry Loudermilk

At a high school in Oklahoma, school officials remove “God Bless America” signs from schools in fear that someone might be offended.
At a Long Island, New York television station, management orders flags removed from the newsroom, and red, white, and blue ribbons removed from the lapels of reporters. Why? Management did not want to appear biased, and felt that our nation’s flag might give the appearance that “they lean one way or another.”
Officials in a California city ban U.S. flags from being displayed on city fire trucks because they didn’t want to offend anyone in the community.
In an “act of tolerance,”
the head of the public library at a Florida university ordered all “Proud To Be an American” signs removed so as to not offend international students.

Politically Correct Attacks Against America
I, for one, am quite disturbed by these actions of so-called “American citizens”; and I am tired of this nation worrying about whether or not we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on September 11th, we have experienced a surge of patriotism by the majority of Americans. However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled in New York and Washington, DC when the “politically correct” crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others.
I am not against immigration, nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to America. In fact, our country’s population is almost entirely comprised of descendants of immigrants; however, there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some native-born Americans, need to understand.

If You’re Among the Politically Correct, Here’s What You Need to Know
First of all, it is not our responsibility to continually try not to offend you in any way. This idea of America being a multi-cultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Americans, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language, and our own lifestyle. This culture, called the “American Way” has been developed over centuries of struggles, trials, and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. Our forefathers fought, bled, and died at places such as Bunker Hill, Antietam, San Juan Hill, Iwo Jima, Normandy, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf, for our way of life.
We speak English, not Spanish, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society, learn our language!

And Yes, We Do Trust in God
“In God We Trust” is our national motto. This is not some off-the-wall, Christian, right wing, political slogan. It is our national motto. It is engraved in stone in the House of Representatives in our Capitol, and it is printed on our currency. We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation; and this is clearly documented throughout our history. If it is appropriate for our motto to be inscribed in the halls of our highest level of government, then it is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools.

If God Offends You, Here’s What to Do
God is in our pledge, our National Anthem, nearly every patriotic song, and in our founding documents. We honor His birth, death, and resurrection as holidays, and we turn to Him in prayer in times of crisis. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture, and we are proud to have Him.

It’s Our Heritage
We are proud of our heritage and those who have so honorably defended our freedoms. We celebrate Independence Day, Memorial Day, Veterans Day, and Flag Day. We have parades, picnics, and barbecues where we proudly wave our flag. As an American, I have the right to wave my flag, sing my national anthem, quote my national motto, and cite my pledge whenever and wherever I choose. If the Stars and Stripes offend you, or you don’t like Uncle Sam, then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this planet.

This is Our Culture – If You Don’t Like It You’re Free to Go Elsewhere
The American culture is our way of life, our heritage, and we are proud of it. We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don’t care how you did things where you came from. We are Americans. Like it or not, this is our country, our land, and our lifestyle.
Our First Amendment gives every citizen the right to express his opinion about our government, culture, or society, and we will allow you every opportunity to do so. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about our flag, our pledge, our national motto, or our way of life, I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great American freedom, the right to leave!

If this doesn't bother you then just delete the message. If, on the other hand, it does raise the hair on the back of your neck, I hope you forward it to every legal resident in the country including every elected representative in Washington , D.C. - five times a week for as long as it takes to restore some semblance of intelligence in our policies and enforcement thereof.

New Hampshire has it figured out

****cliffnotess for Jenny - This is bascially telling the federal government to back-off and adhere to the contract between the state of NH (and 20 other states now) and the federal government, which is the constitution. The Feds are far overreaching their legal reach with many of the mandates they are sending to the states to follow and the states are telling them if they continue to do it the contract is null and void. Basically making 50 independent countries that would have to re-ratify the constitution.


In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Nine

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; and

Whereas the Constitution of the State of New Hampshire, Part 2, Article 1 declares that the people inhabiting the territory formerly called the province of New Hampshire, do hereby solemnly and mutually agree with each other, to form themselves into a free, sovereign and independent body-politic, or State, by the name of The State of New Hampshire; and

Whereas the State of New Hampshire when ratifying the Constitution for the United States of America recommended as a change, “First That it be Explicitly declared that all Powers not expressly & particularly Delegated by the aforesaid are reserved to the several States to be, by them Exercised;” and

Whereas the other States that included recommendations, to wit Massachusetts, New York, North Carolina, Rhode Island and Virginia, included an identical or similar recommended change; and

Whereas these recommended changes were incorporated as the ninth amendment, the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people, and the tenth amendment, the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people, to the Constitution for the United States of America; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a General Government for special purposes, -- delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force; that to this compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral party, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party: that the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress; and

That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish treason, counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States, piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and offences against the law of nations, slavery, and no other crimes whatsoever; and it being true as a general principle, and one of the amendments to the Constitution having also declared, that “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people,” therefore all acts of Congress which assume to create, define, or punish crimes, other than those so enumerated in the Constitution are altogether void, and of no force; and that the power to create, define, and punish such other crimes is reserved, and, of right, appertains solely and exclusively to the respective States, each within its own territory; and

That it is true as a general principle, and is also expressly declared by one of the amendments to the Constitution, that “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people;” and that no power over the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or freedom of the press being delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, all lawful powers respecting the same did of right remain, and were reserved to the States or the people: that thus was manifested their determination to retain to themselves the right of judging how far the licentiousness of speech and of the press may be abridged without lessening their useful freedom, and how far those abuses which cannot be separated from their use should be tolerated, rather than the use be destroyed. And thus also they guarded against all abridgment by the United States of the freedom of religious opinions and exercises, and retained to themselves the right of protecting the same. And that in addition to this general principle and express declaration, another and more special provision has been made by one of the amendments to the Constitution, which expressly declares, that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press:” thereby guarding in the same sentence, and under the same words, the freedom of religion, of speech, and of the press: insomuch, that whatever violated either, throws down the sanctuary which covers the others, and that libels, falsehood, and defamation, equally with heresy and false religion, are withheld from the cognizance of federal tribunals. That, therefore, all acts of Congress of the United States which do abridge the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, are not law, but are altogether void, and of no force; and

That the construction applied by the General Government (as is evidenced by sundry of their proceedings) to those parts of the Constitution of the United States which delegate to Congress a power “to lay and collect taxes, duties, imports, and excises, to pay the debts, and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States,” and “to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution the powers vested by the Constitution in the government of the United States, or in any department or officer thereof,” goes to the destruction of all limits prescribed to their power by the Constitution: that words meant by the instrument to be subsidiary only to the execution of limited powers, ought not to be so construed as themselves to give unlimited powers, nor a part to be so taken as to destroy the whole residue of that instrument: that the proceedings of the General Government under color of these articles, will be a fit and necessary subject of revisal and correction; and

That a committee of conference and correspondence be appointed, which shall have as its charge to communicate the preceding resolutions to the Legislatures of the several States; to assure them that this State continues in the same esteem of their friendship and union which it has manifested from that moment at which a common danger first suggested a common union: that it considers union, for specified national purposes, and particularly to those specified in their federal compact, to be friendly to the peace, happiness and prosperity of all the States: that faithful to that compact, according to the plain intent and meaning in which it was understood and acceded to by the several parties, it is sincerely anxious for its preservation: that it does also believe, that to take from the States all the powers of self-government and transfer them to a general and consolidated government, without regard to the special delegations and reservations solemnly agreed to in that compact, is not for the peace, happiness or prosperity of these States; and that therefore this State is determined, as it doubts not its co-States are, to submit to undelegated, and consequently unlimited powers in no man, or body of men on earth: that in cases of an abuse of the delegated powers, the members of the General Government, being chosen by the people, a change by the people would be the constitutional remedy; but, where powers are assumed which have not been delegated, a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy: that every State has a natural right in cases not within the compact, (casus non foederis), to nullify of their own authority all assumptions of power by others within their limits: that without this right, they would be under the dominion, absolute and unlimited, of whosoever might exercise this right of judgment for them: that nevertheless, this State, from motives of regard and respect for its co-States, has wished to communicate with them on the subject: that with them alone it is proper to communicate, they alone being parties to the compact, and solely authorized to judge in the last resort of the powers exercised under it, Congress being not a party, but merely the creature of the compact, and subject as to its assumptions of power to the final judgment of those by whom, and for whose use itself and its powers were all created and modified: that if the acts before specified should stand, these conclusions would flow from them: that it would be a dangerous delusion were a confidence in the men of our choice to silence our fears for the safety of our rights: that confidence is everywhere the parent of despotism -- free government is founded in jealousy, and not in confidence; it is jealousy and not confidence which prescribes limited constitutions, to bind down those whom we are obliged to trust with power: that our Constitution has accordingly fixed the limits to which, and no further, our confidence may go. In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution. That this State does therefore call on its co-States for an expression of their sentiments on acts not authorized by the federal compact. And it doubts not that their sense will be so announced as to prove their attachment unaltered to limited government, whether general or particular. And that the rights and liberties of their co-States will be exposed to no dangers by remaining embarked in a common bottom with their own. That they will concur with this State in considering acts as so palpably against the Constitution as to amount to an undisguised declaration that that compact is not meant to be the measure of the powers of the General Government, but that it will proceed in the exercise over these States, of all powers whatsoever: that they will view this as seizing the rights of the States, and consolidating them in the hands of the General Government, with a power assumed to bind the States, not merely as the cases made federal, (casus foederis,) but in all cases whatsoever, by laws made, not with their consent, but by others against their consent: that this would be to surrender the form of government we have chosen, and live under one deriving its powers from its own will, and not from our authority; and that the co-States, recurring to their natural right in cases not made federal, will concur in declaring these acts void, and of no force, and will each take measures of its own for providing that neither these acts, nor any others of the General Government not plainly and intentionally authorized by the Constitution, shall be exercised within their respective territories; and

That the said committee be authorized to communicate by writing or personal conferences, at any times or places whatever, with any person or person who may be appointed by any one or more co-States to correspond or confer with them; and that they lay their proceedings before the next session of the General Court; and

That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America. Acts which would cause such a nullification include, but are not limited to:

I. Establishing martial law or a state of emergency within one of the States comprising the United States of America without the consent of the legislature of that State.

II. Requiring involuntary servitude, or governmental service other than a draft during a declared war, or pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

III. Requiring involuntary servitude or governmental service of persons under the age of 18 other than pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.

IV. Surrendering any power delegated or not delegated to any corporation or foreign government.

V. Any act regarding religion; further limitations on freedom of political speech; or further limitations on freedom of the press.

VI. Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition; and

That should any such act of Congress become law or Executive Order or Judicial Order be put into force, all powers previously delegated to the United States of America by the Constitution for the United States shall revert to the several States individually. Any future government of the United States of America shall require ratification of three quarters of the States seeking to form a government of the United States of America and shall not be binding upon any State not seeking to form such a government; and

That copies of this resolution be transmitted by the house clerk to the President of the United States, each member of the United States Congress, and the presiding officers of each State’s legislature.

Here we go again!!!

I have been taking a much needed break from blogging in general and writing this one specifically for the past several weeks. This has a lot to do with the old adage "If you can't say anything nice, shut the hell up" or something like that.

As all my readers know, I follow the goings on in Washington DC, partly for the sport of it and partly because I am scared out of my mind about the people in charge of this nation. They don't seem smart enough to have ridden on the short bus, but more like they got run over by the short bus.

Let's break it down a little;

-GOP - House of Representatives - Thank you for voting 100% against the bailout, it was an act of good conscious that you did. Senate GOP - please don't be stupid.

Dear Leader -
- How many tax cheats does it take to screw up the treasury?
I don't know but there are at least 5 that he wanted in his cabinet.
- How does a government command executives to make no more than dear leader? The USA became preferred tax holders of many of the banks by accepting bailout (tarp) money, this should give the government no more say in what the banks do than me and you. Sorry Barry we aren't socialized yet, the government isn't in control on the banks, they just made some bad investments.
- How hot do you keep your house in the winter? Dear Leader when he was running for his coronation said that 72 degrees would be greedy by us citizens and it would give us a bad reputation around the world.... his office is at 78 degrees, can't he afford sweaters?

- $900 billion dollars and no stimulus any where. The congressional budget office says that a majority of the money will take two or more years to reach the marketplace. The minority offered a alternative, for 350 Billion we can keep more of our money which will stimulate the economy and create 4 -6 million jobs within 24 months. Oh yeah - this is money our grandchildren won't have to pay back. Do you think this is just political rhetoric? The model that they used to calculate these figures was created and proven by none other than Dear Leaders chief economic adviser and backed up by the Congressional Budget Office. The biggest problem with the minority plan is none of the pet projects and pork offered to us by the left would be included, planned parenthood (abortionist's 'R' Us) and Acorn would have to find their additional funding somewhere else.

- Why if we are in the worst economic state since the great deprecion is Nazi Pelosi still flying across country in a private jet paid for by you and me at a cost of $132K per round trip. For the good of the country and to make use of the 1 billion dollars for Amtrak in the pork barrel plan she should take the train.

- Congress just received a 4000+ raise this year. Shouldn't they set the example for us and be patriotic and sacrifice like the Auto Makers and only take $1 per year until they have corrected the financial crisis they have led this country into.

- The new interior secretary has started his war for the environment by rescinding 74 land leases in Utah, they were for oil exploration. The left is excited because now the environmental lobby will give them more money, and so will we, at the pumps.

- State of Oregon is trying to start charging tax per mile instead of per gallon. It seems last year when we were all told to go out and by fuel efficient cars and drive less that the gas tax revenues dropped significantly. So now Oregon wants to have GPS devices installed that will track and bill you for driving at all. The feds are much less conniving... they have a proposal to raise gas taxes a full dollar a gallon.

- Only in America can an unemployed single woman, with 6 kids already, get public assistance for fertility treatments, produce 8 more kids and then need WIC and Welfare to raise them.

- Have you heard of the "Fairness Doctrine"? You will and there is nothing fair about it.

Side note: I am feeling much better since surgery and I am healing fine physically. The cure for my mental anguish will take 2-4 years to cure.
