Posted on 12/27/2009 3:43:54 PM PST by conservativeimage.com
"Should the debt incurred by the United States be the direct result of one administration's actions, the reimbursement of that debt shall become the sole responsibility of that administration. Should that administration be unable to reimburse such debt by the end of their tenure, the reimbursement of that debt shall be carried out though the incarceration of appropriate parties for the appropriate periods."
In other words, the United States could send their president(s) to jail along with others who are ultimately responsible for the debt that they personally produce during their administration; potentially for life!
“Then no generation can contract debts greater than may be paid during the course of it’s own existence.” ~ Thomas Jefferson letter to James Madison, September 6, 1789 - The Earth Belongs To The Living (http://www.let.rug.nl/usa/P/tj3/writings/brf/jefl81.htm)
Do you have a working link which goes to the text on your blog?
Ooh, nice! I love Jefferson.
The 6th Year link will be up at conservativeimage.com “one m.c.” on the front page later with this text.
I’m also going to run the idea past Senator Ted Harvey (R) Colorado and see what his reaction is.
“In the three years following the elections, nine constitutional amendments were ratified by the state legislatures in rapid succession. The Document went through some major changes.
The 27th Amendment granted blanket immunity from prosecution for any crimes committed before or during the Second Civil War to anyone who actively fought for the resistance.
The 28th Amendment repe3aled the 14th and 26th Amendments. It also made full state Citizenship a right of birth, only applicable to native-born Citizens who were the children of Citizens. It allowed immigrants to buy state citizenship. It clarified “United States Citizenship” as only having effect when state Citizens traveled outside the nation’s borders, and outlawed titles of nobility such as “esquire”.
The 29th Amendment banned welfare and foreign aid, removed the United States from the UN and most foreign treaties, capped Federal spending at 2 percent of GDP, capped the combined number of foreign troops in the fifty states and on Federal territory at one thousand men, and limited the active duty Federal military to a hundred thousand men, except in time of declared war.
The 30th Amendment amplified the 2nd Amendment, confirming it as both an unalienable individual right and as a state right, repealed the existing Federal gun-control laws, preempted any present or future state gun-control laws, and reinstituted a decentralized militia system.
The 31st Amendment repealed the 16th Amendment, and severely limited the ability of the Federal government to collect any taxes within the 50 states. Henceforth, the Federal government’s budget could be funded only by tariffs, import duties, and bonds.
The 32nd Amendment outlawed deficit spending, put the new United States currency back on a bimetallic god and silver standard, and made all currency “redeemable on demand”.
The 33rd Amendment froze salaries at six thousand dollars a year for House members and ten thousand for Senators, limited campaign spending for any federal office to five thousand per term, and repealed the 17th Amendment, returning Senators to election by their state legislatures.
The 34th Amendment restored the pre-Erie Railroad v. Thompkins system of Common Law, invalidated most Federal court decisions since 1932, and clarified the inapplicability of most Federal statutes on state Citizens in several states.
The 35th Amendment reinstated the allodial land-title system. Under a renewed Federal Land Patent system the amendment mandated the return of 92 percent of the Federal lands to private ownership through public sales at one dollar in silver coin per acre.
The nation’s economy was slowly restored. But with the nine new amendments, the scope of government- both state and Federal- was greatly reduced from its pre-Crunch proportions. Small government was almost universally seen as good government. For the first time since before the First Civil War, it became the norm to again refer to the nation plurally as “these United States”, rather than singularly as “The United States”. the change was subtle, but profound”
“Patriots”, by James Wesley Rawles, “The Amendments” pp 381-382
Amazing! Something a Tea Party member would say, and then the MSM would label him an "extremist" for saying it.
Ever notice how the Dems and MSM label people "extremists" when the Tea Party member quotes or paraphrases one of the Founding Fathers?
