WOOHOO!! Pennsylvania is on the list! Color me surprised!
Meanwhile, they are all clamoring for their own teat to draw from under the great Porkulus Maximus!
Florida FReepers, call, write and email our RINO about this. If PA can get on the list, we should have no problem twisting that skinny gov of ours arm to do so. FREEDOM!!!!!
NICE ! GO AHEAD FOR FREEDOM USA
New Hampshire, overrun with Massholes and increasingly subject to voter fraud, will not adopt this resolution. The Governor and legislature completely support — with hands out — the Big Spender on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Definitely time to regain the rights of the states.
What we are probably going to see is a dominance of the independence forces in a number of states who are going to shout down the communists in their states.
I will contact my state rep TODAY and try to add tiny Delaware. Now THAT would be a slap in the face.
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.
This amendment sounds good on its face, but thanks to things like stretching the Interstate Commerce Clause to include anything our Congress wants its become meaningless. Im generally not in favor of adding new amendments - but maybe we need one to restrict the Commerce Clause.
I will be contacting my State Houses and pushing for immediate consideration of such a bill, and with a lot of the emphasis put on holding the Feds to the 9th and 10th amendments, I don’t see where they would oppose it...
For those of you from Pa:
And it was the two Republican Senators from Maine and the Republican Senator from Pennsylvania that went over to the dark side and voted FOR this pork bill that gave the Dims the 60 votes it needed.
Sent the letter below to my FL rep Adam Fetterman (D) district 81
Dear Rep. Fetterman,
I am taking a moment to write you about the troubling economic situation, and how these times can cause us to lose sight of the fundamentals our nation was based on. Our Founding Fathers had been oppressed by their government, and knew without a doubt, that by throwing off the shackles of tyranny was the only way for their children, countrymen and themselves to prosper. A very small group of very brave men took it upon themselves to join together and declare their independence from this tax happy monarchy and laid down their signatures and then their very lives for this cause.
It has now become self evident to another group of brave citizens that this course must again be undertaken. While watching in horror, the largest spending bill in history being forced upon a populace by a small band of theives in Washington, not representing their constituents views, and rewarding various groups for their loyalty during elections, it is obvious to all but the most blind that we cannot borrow our way out of debt. The bill put forth is 48% tax cuts and 52% spending with absolutely no mention of spending cuts for the government except to cut our military budget by 10% at a time when we are fighting a war on 2 fronts, and our sons and daughters are in harms way! Instead, government is planning to fund abortion, STD prevention, and honeybee studies, among billions of more in “the PORKULOUS bill” or as Sntr Corker put it, the biggest generational theft bill of all time. Think about that, generational theft. You have children, as do I, and we are stealing their opportunity to have the same life our parents did, because we don’t want to face our debt problem.
Our Founding fathers have said many things about passing debt on to future generations, about entitlement spending, taxing the people, and big government. There is way too much over reaching in all these areas today. Please read Jefferson, Davey Crockett, Franklin, Washington and the Federalist papers. We are succumbing to the very things they warned of. Re read, with fresh eyes, the declaration of independence, and most importantly, the Constitution of the United States. See with the eyes of our Fathers what they were trying to protect us from.
While I know you personally are not involved in federal negotiations on this bill, our Governor is supporting this bill. This will NOT stand with Floridians. We are hurting for sure, my husband has been unemployed for 4 months now. I have not asked for food stamps, mortgage reductions, welfare, or any other entitlement spending on our behalf. I ask you to NOT put my children further into debt on our behalf. It was our irresponsibility looking for easy credit, instant gratification, keeping up with the Joneses, and not planning well for the future. I do not want to burden them with our generations greed.
20 states have put forth bills reaffirming the rights of their states. Why all of a sudden do you think this is happening? It is because so many constituents feel their rights and liberties slipping away, that drastic measures to protect the sovereignty of the state is necessary. I urge you, and your fellow representatives, to put up a similar bill in our state. While being part of the Union is important, it does NOT supersede the right to be a sovereign state. Our rights are being eroded as union members, whether abuses of the 2nd amendment, abortion, ILLEGAL immigration, religious freedom,gay marriage, and taxation without representation. I hope you will consider truly representing us in the state of Florida by putting forth such a message to Washington on behalf of the people in Florida.
Thank you for your time,
There are a number of states, mostly Western ones like AZ, MT, ND, etc, who have recently asserted their right to secede in certain circumstances. I believe AZ has stated they will automatically secede if the Constitution is ever suspended due to martial law AND a certain number of states trigger similar clauses.
Secession is not likely, but it is interesting that several states are publicly and legally asserting themselves. What is left unsaid in the article is one possible reason for this. Massive immigration and racial politics are only going to get worse. The federal government will keep mandating laws and programs that will bankrupt state budgets. Does a state like Idaho really need to follow the same laws and institute the same programs as Maryland? A state like MD must tailor its legislation in areas like welfare and gun control specifically to racial and cultural realities - its voters demand that it does. When the Democratic Party controls the federal government, that same thinking gets turned into federal law and spending packages.
This is only going to intensify. Once there begins a sizable demographic shift of whites moving West, the dissolution of the union will follow. This could take 20 to 50 years and is not inevitable, but it is certainly possible.
“The time has come to “form a more perfect union” by states rights. The battle of the states has begun. History is in the making once again”
At some point it seemed to be accepted that the federal government was more reasoned and responsible than the state governments ... that is a falsehood. It is time for a political revival, which will necessitate a spiritual one, to strive for that “shining city upon a hill” that Pres. Reagan foresaw. I can think of no greater shame than not preserving the freedoms that we were so selflessly given, so the next generation can also enjoy them.
the adolescent, psychotic punks in congress are going to have to learn that they promised to uphold the constitution of the united states and not the communist manifesto.
(tyranny is just another word for liberal democrats.)
