The Tenth Amendment Town Hall (Texas)
Texas Conservative Coalition ^

Posted on 02/09/2010 4:48:08 PM PST by mnehring

The Tenth Amendment Town Hall

Special Event: Tenth Amendment Town Hall
Exploring Solutions to Restoring Texas' Constitutional Rights

February 15, 2010 - 8:30am to 1:30pm - Plano, Texas


You are invited to a very special event hosted by the Texas Conservative Coalition (TCC). 

 

Trillion-dollar bailouts, record deficits, a proposed government takeover of health care, job-killing environmental regulations, and looming tax increases.  The excessive power being wielded over states and individuals by the federal government must stop.  The Tenth Amendment Town Hall hosted by TCC will serve as forum to explore solutions to both restore the constitutional rights of the State of Texas and its people, and to roll back the growing power and influence of the federal government.

 

 

The event will feature a keynote address by Judge Andrew Napolitano (author and Fox News Contributor), as well as remarks by nationally-prominent constitutional scholars.  Governor Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott will also participate in this event.


The Town Hall will also feature three panel discussions:

 



TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Government; US: Texas
KEYWORDS: 10th; 10thamendment; napolitano; perry; sovereignty; statesrights; texas; townhalls
Governor Perry and Judge Napolitano will discuss how to protect Texas from the fed's infringement through unconstitutional law.

Stop with the 10th amendment already unless they are willing to disable the IRS in their states. There is no 10th as long as you cannot control the outflow.

Texas has actually been making moves for almost a year to block any unconstitutional legislation under 10th amendment rights.

This is a great start. There is no doubt that Texas can survive without any help from the communists King Obama's Government. It has seaports for imports and exports, plenty of food being grown, oil, etc. It could become, if it had to, a Nation by itself. On the bottom of the line, California is a gutless communists controlled State and would not survive a breakaway. It has lost most of the intelligent humans. A few of us that are left are Constitutional conservatives and will eventually get the hell out.

"Governor Perry and Judge Napolitano will discuss how to protect Texas from the fed's infringement through unconstitutional law."

Wow! Is this the same Judge Nepolitano that said that Ron Paul was a present day Thomas Jefferson? You remember, Ron, the one you have mentioned a time or two.

Never heard of him. But if he is someone who, like Jefferson, is willing to preemptively go after muslum pirates to stop their attacks on US property (ships), he must be cool.

Good grief! Wouldn’t it be easier to force Obama’s hand by obliging him to fully identify himself? Don’t we have a SCOTUS and a Congress? What the hell is wrong with this country? Are we already under a dictatorship?

I hate to break it to you, but Texas is far behind in this effort!

Check out Georgia’s Ray McBerry:
http://georgiafirst.org/governor/sra.shtml
This guy is openly pleading to interpose against Federal gun laws enforcement by throwing Federal agents that attempt to enforce them in jail.

On top of that the Georgia State legislator IS ALREADY looking at bills to requiring that and much more.

No body messes with Georgia and gets away with it!

Texas has a lot of catch up work to do, just to get her even with Georgia and other states.

Thanks dynachrome!

Any and all encouragement and support by Freepers from Texas or otherwise will certainly help move these efforts along. Saber rattling by The States is just beginning and Texas can be the 800 lb gorilla in the room. As Texas goes, so goes the 10th Amendment movement???

The Great State of Texas can and should lead the parade!





Please ~ping~ me to articles relating to the 10th Amendment/States Rights so I can engage the pinger.

I've stopped monitoring threads and unilaterally adding names to the ping list, so if you want on or off the list just say so.

Stopping the outflow is up to the person in the mirror. Stop looking for government - any level - to do what individuals must do for themselves.

BTW, if there is no 10th Amendment - or a need for it - repeal it. I welcome that fight.

“There is no 10th as long as you cannot control the outflow.”

Don’t you think that may very well be discussed? I heard Colorado a few years back passed legislation reorganizing the manner in which federal taxes were collected in the state. ALL federal taxes, including income, were to be sent to a state escrow account, from which, the State then paid the federal government.

Too bad the governor vetoed it!

The trouble with the 10th is the IRS. The states have to step up to the plate and arrest if necessary IRS agents that harrass their citizens. I love the 10th it is just it is often discussed without reference to the money flow.

If I lived within 50 miles or so from Plano, I would go for sure. Maybe some Dallas area freepers can go and give us an after action report.

Yessirree !! Glad to see it.

Looks like Medina will be sucking enough votes
from Perry and “Kayh-lid Sheik Hutchison” (as I
“affectionately” refer to her, hahahahaaaa!) that
a runoff vote will be in Texas’ future.

With Perry winning in the runoff, of course !!! :^D

Now THAT'S interesting. Tough sell though, IMHO. The ONE thing I looked for they didn't put on their web site was what the demographics would look over time. Given that metropolitan cess pools have steadily gained population in relation to rural areas, how would the voting blocs change compared to what they are now? Would the generally more conservative suburbs pick up more representives by comparision? OR, would they be about the same as they are now? IOW, aside from having a rep closer to home and more accessible would there be any benefit to those that hold to traditional values? For my part, I would rather see the actual powers move back to the states where they were originally envisioned by the Founders.

I would not think of increased House Members in terms of a conservative or liberal pick up. (Although I think that based on the population BASE that votes GOP in presidential elections that conservative would fair better.) Increasing the number of reps is an issue of representation and freedom. The freedom index by state indicates that New Hampshire is the most free and California is the least free. It is no coincidence that New Hampshire is the State has the most representation in its lower house while California has the least representation in its lower house.

FWIW, and this is JMHO: I would rather we conservatives work within the present system to make the necessary “adjustments” than rework the system right now. It is certainly something to consider and debate down the road but for now I think most people would feel more in their comfort zones beating the loony left on the current playing field. If Americans are in fact waking up, we’re liable to see some dramatic changes as early as this year. Praying for the best, preparing for the worst...
