Stunning 1997 SCOTUS Ruling The End Of ObamaCare?

Tenth Amendment Solutions Ray McBerry always hosts a good event. And Saturday’s (June 4th, 2011) Tenth Amendment Solutions presentation with Sheriff Mack was no exception. In fact, it turned out to be one of the most compelling forums for constitutional dialogue I have seen. Sheriff Mack, who looks every bit the part of a western Sheriff, lead the audience on a fast paced, sometimes emotional, and always thought provoking tour of the Constitution viewed through the lens of the 2nd Amendment. I am certain nearly everyone learned something new after listening to Mack’s presentation. However, is there a bigger picture here? Does Sheriff Mack’s battle against the Brady Bill in 1994 and his subsequent victory at the Supreme Court in 1997 spell the end of ObamaCare and the overreach of the US federal government? You decide. The SCOTUS decision appears at the end of this article. But let’s start at the beginning.

McBerry kicked off the Tenth Amendment Solutions summit with his trademark questions to an enthusiastic gathering of “Tenthers” that included; a GA State Representative, a sitting judge, police officer, and a variety of other Constitutional activists. “How many of you would agree we could use a little less federal government in our lives?”, asked McBerry. The audience answered with a thunderous approval. “Well, how many of you would agree we could use a lot less federal government in our lives?”, he asked again as everyone stood up and once again roared in the affirmative. “People everywhere are waking up to the fact that only limited government can restore American liberties.”, McBerry said. He went on say elected officials take an oath to defend the constitution and protect our liberties. Any government official not doing so is derelict of duty and must be removed from office or position.

With that send-off, Sheriff Mack took the dais and like a skilled college professor, lead the audience on an adventure in learning – a short course on the constitution from the perspective of the 2nd Amendment. While you might expect this to be an over-testosterone tainted, male gun toting diatribe, it was the opposite. Sheriff Mack weaved the constitution through the vision of our Founding Fathers, the needs of ordinary citizens, tyranny that comes naturally from a society deprived of its God given right to defend itself, and ultimately the real reason the 2nd Amendment was written. And in case you don’t know, the 2nd Amendment was written to give the citizens recourse against a tyrannical government.

The session was titled, “Interposition & The Local Sheriff”. Show of hands – how many of you know the County Sheriff is the highest constitutional officer in the County? In other words, the Sheriff has authority over every other official, including federal officers. The County Sheriff has the authority to arrest federal and state officials who enter his/her local jurisdiction if they break the law. And break the law they often do. One of Mack’s many important points was clarifying that the local elected Sheriff and local law enforcement is essential to liberty in the United States. This is because they answer to the local citizens. The alternative is a national police force which would answer to a central government someplace outside of the control of the local citizens. This undoubtedly would lead to more law enforcement officers sidestepping the constitution and exercising heavy handed or even illegal actions against innocent people.

Mack cited many examples of government officials enacting unconstitutional laws and then enforcing them. Treatment of blacks for example in the 50’s and 60’s was in clear violation of the US Constitution. He told the moving story of Rosa Parks and her decision not to give up her seat to a white man. How would Mack have handled the situation? He would have sat down next to her and made sure she safely got to her destination, in the seat she chose to sit in. That’s the true role of a law enforcement officer protecting a citizen’s constitutional rights, Mack reminded the audience.

Mack related how American citizens of Japanese descent were illegally rounded up and herded into what were essentially, concentration camps during World War II. No due process. No evidence of threats to the US. It was simply another example of government run amok.

Interposition is “the doctrine that an individual state of the U.S. may oppose any federal action it believes encroaches on its sovereignty.” (dictionary.com) Sheriff Mack clearly explained Article 1, Section 8 and how it places simple and easy to understand limits on federal power. The federal government was created by the states and given limited powers to be the agent of the states because it was just more practical to assign certain duties like national defense to a broader entity. But the Founding Fathers knew the creation of a federal government entity would lead to power struggles in the future.

Sure enough, the Alien and Sedition Act was signed into law in 1798. Characterized as unconstitutional by many, it violated the 1st Amendment (freedom of speech) and the tenth amendment limiting the powers of the federal government. Countless thousands of unconstitutional bills have subsequently been written and passed into law, subjecting citizens to oppression similar to that found in totalitarian regimes. In fact, some Constitutional scholars claim 80% of all federal laws today are unconstitutional.

“Where are the protectors of our constitutional rights – the same people who signed an oath of office to protect and defend the US Constitution?”, asks Sheriff Mack.

Elected officials, law enforcement officers, officials in the judicial system, and many other public servants swear an oath to defend the US Constitution. Mack says that oath requires law enforcement, elected officials, and the judiciary to protect an individual’s rights even if you don’t agree with that person’s actions – even if you don’t like that individual. In the case of the bigots trying to deny Rosa Parks her seat on the bus and other constitutional rights, Mack says police officers should instead have provided her safe escort home.

2nd Amendment rights are among the many rights trampled on by US state and federal law. Using outright lies, twisted facts, and the mouthpiece media; laws restricting citizens rights to self-protection number nearly 20,000 according to Sheriff Mack. Yet going back to Article 1, Section 8, Mack says the federal government has no authority to regulate, seize, or ban guns. In fact, governments that do so, often terrorize their own citizens. Government schools today don’t teach students that totalitarian regimes like Russia, China, Cambodia, and others killed hundreds of millions of their own people. Why? Because they could. The government had guns – the citizens didn’t.

In 1994, Sheriff Mack made a tough decision. The Brady Bill had just been passed and it specified a number of unconstitutional attacks on legitimate gun owners rights. To make matters worse, the federal law required local law enforcement to perform background checks, fingerprinting, and other intrusive and unconstitutional gun grabbing tasks. Mack decided to sue the federal government.

Working with the NRA, Mack sued based on several legal theories. One was the 10th Amendment and the other was the 5th Amendment. He ultimately was joined by just 6 other Sheriffs out of a total of 3,100 Sheriffs in the United States. The case Mack & Prinze vs. US Govt was won in in district court, lost on appeal, then went to the Supreme Court where they won a 5-4 decision.

Here is a summary of the Supreme Court decision on Mack vs US, June 27, 1997.

The Federal Government may neither issue directives requiring the States to address particular problems, nor command the States’ officers, or those of their political subdivisions, to administer or enforce a federal regulatory program. It matters not whether policy making is involved, and no case-by-case weighing of the burdens or benefits is necessary; such commands are fundamentally incompatible with our constitutional system of dual sovereignty.

in Mack v. US., June 27, 1997

So, if you have read this far, can ObamaCare stand up to this judicial precedent?

President Obama Endorses Nullification

Barack Obama Nullification Now

Barack Obama makes a case for nullification

Mr. Obama endorsed nullification of US federal law recently when he instructed US Attorney General Eric Holder to no longer defend the Defense of Marriage Act. Reason: Mr. Obama believes it is unconstitutional. And it may be. Since I am far from being a constitutional scholar, I can only offer my layman’s thoughts on the matter. Quoting from www.domawatch.org, “The Federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) defines marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman for purposes of all federal laws, and provides that states need not recognize a marriage from another state if it is between persons of the same sex.”

Mr. Obama is probably right in his assessment of the DOMA.  My limited knowledge of the constitutionality of DOMA suggests that it violates the 10th Amendment by telling states they have permission from the federal government to not recognize a marriage from another state. Why do the states need permission from the federal government? After all, according to www.domawatch.org, There are 30 states that have constitutional amendments protecting traditional marriage, including the three states (Arizona, California, and Florida) that passed constitutional amendments in November 2008. Do they really need the US federal government’s blessing on laws they themselves already passed on their own?

Whether Mr. Obama is correct or not, he has opened the door for nullification action on any and all laws that can be challenged from a constitutionally legal position. Consider a recent case reported in foxnews.com. I quote from the story; “Holder set aside the Board of Immigration Appeals ruling allowing the deportation to Ireland of Paul Wilson Dorman, a gay man illegally in the U.S. Dorman wants to stay in the country with his male partner, with whom he celebrated a civil union in New Jersey. The Board of Immigration Appeals judges had ruled against Dorman on the basis of the Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as between a man and a woman.

Attorney General Holder intervened in the appeals case and asked if Dorman could be considered a “spouse” under New Jersey law if not for the Defense of Marriage Act. From foxnews.com, “This was an extraordinary measure by the Obama administration and demonstrates a clear commitment to nullify the Defense of Marriage Act,” [Gorman Attorney] Mundy said of Holder’s action. “It’s a far-reaching victory not only for same-sex couples but for immigration reform.” Here we have an attorney echoing a sitting US President on nullification of a US law.

Well well, Mr. President. I like your way of thinking. Why don’t we continue along by applying your theories to the socialist Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act  – which is considered unconstitutional by many legal scholars? Let’s start by nullifying it on a federal level. That’s if the current crop of CongressThugs and Senators in Name Only would have the guts to do so. They won’t – so why don’t you Mr. President?

Let’s also nullify the unconstitutional; Environmental Protection Agency, Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives Agency, USDA, Department of Education, Department of Energy, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Labor, Department of Transportation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Office of Elementary and Secondary Education, Fair Housing and Equal Opportunity, Farm Credit Administration, Farm Service Agency, Federal Citizen Information Center, Federal Communications Commission, Federal Election Commission, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council, Federal Financing Bank, Federal Interagency Committee for the Management of Noxious and Exotic Weeds … The Federal Reserve …

OK – you get the point. America needs a breath of fresh, clean, non-polluted air. That can only come by nullification of most if not all the US unconstitutional federal agencies along with their stale, stagnant, polluted regulations.

But keep the “Endangered Species Committee” to lend a helping hand to government officials who are no longer needed.

Yes Mr. Obama – Nullification Now.

It’s the Voter stupid

Two Cigars for Debbie Dooley and her back room buddies

2 cigars for Debbie Dooley while contemplating back room deals

“This is a pathetic attempt of Mr. McBerry to smear his victim”

Debbie Dooley
FreedomWorks/GA

FreedomWorks organizer Debbie Dooley insists that the voters were served when Ray McBerry was abruptly uninvited to their phony debate a week ago. Her reason for slamming the door on McBerry? False accusations initiated by some opportunists from his past. They have subsequently been exposed as the perpetrators of a smear campaign. Thus, it’s ironic that Dooley now is calling McBerry’s efforts to clear his name – an “attempt… to smear his victim.”

In fact, this is a pathetic attempt by Dooley to back pedal and put a positive spin on her obviously biased and discriminatory decision to keep McBerry and Jeff Chapman out of the debate so you couldn’t hear them. While she absurdly says McBerry was trying to tell her how to run her debate, the real truth is she imperiously decided which of her hand picked candidates the voters would get to hear.

And that’s the issue behind this silly back and forth. FreedomWorks staged a debate but left out any candidate that didn’t meet their neo-con qualifications. Candidates like Ray McBerry, Ron and Rand Paul, and Debra Medina are continuously attacked by the mouthpiece media and phony Tea Party wannabees like FreedomWorks. How do I know they are fakes? Because they used  contrived smear products to put a spike in at least one campaign – Ray McBerry’s. It wouldn’t surprise me to find out they were behind other smear campaigns as well.

A true Tea Party activist would welcome Ray McBerry into a public forum because he reflects much of what today’s voter is thinking. His issue platform is Constitutionalist and straight forward. No mumbling, jumping, and jiving on issue questions like you get from the other candidates. I mean, let’s be real here:  Oxendine, Handel, Johnson, & Deal are all career politicians with a long history of Washington DC attachments. And Johnson is an architect who wants to spend GA tax dollars on big building projects like a rail system from Macon to Atlanta. He calls this putting hardhats to work. I call it a big government boondoggle.

During the Clinton Presidential campaign, strategists developed the slogan, “It’s the economy stupid.” So please indulge me as a resurrect an old slogan with a contemporary twist.

It’s the Voter stupid. This election is not about Republicans or Democrats or Libertarians or Debbie Dooley and FreedomWorks. It’s about the concerns and growing frustration of an electorate that is increasingly disconnected from its government. Voters are tired of politics as usual. Hijacking the freedom movement is the only way to get a favored neo-con candidate into  office today because voters are more aware now than ever.

Aware voters deserve and want a close look at all the candidates running – not Dooley’s hand picked Washington DC insiders. Canceling an invitation to a debate at the last minute creates a strong suspicion that there is funny business going on at FreedomWorks. It also creates  the impression that the choice for GA’s next governor has already been made by a shadowy group and the election is a mere formality.

Debbie Dooley and FreedomWorks operatives mouth Tea Party stands on issues in a deceptive attempt to place the same old faces back into the same old jobs. And then they launch ad hominem attacks on the League of the South and Sons of Confederate Veterans to draw attention away from the fact they really support the good old boy network. It’s a deception that has been perpetrated against the American voter for decades.

And speaking of the League of the South, here’s a quote out of the Grey Book that troubled Dooley:
The treason of the Left involves such unconstitutional and immoral enormities of globalism — the selling-out of American national sovereignty to international agencies and interests; radical egalitarianism’ feminism; sodomite rights; abortion; Third World immigration; gun control; hate crime legislation (always meant to be used against whites); judicial tyranny; burdensome taxation; multiculturalism and diversity (code words for anti-white, anti-Christian bigotry); the universal rights of man; and other manifestations of a new brand of politically correct totalitarianism.”

Tea Party activists increasingly are sticking solely to tax issues and letting important political  issues slide. If  Americans need only worry about taxes, then we hardly need much of a political movement. All we need to do is elect politicians who swear to spend less. But as you can see from the above quote from the League of the South, these are many of the issues that concern regular Americans in all parts of America. While the Debbie Dooley’s of the world will try to spin themselves as ‘freedom workers’, they’re really just another group of people who want to bully others into their politically correct totalitarianism.

Globalism, national sovereignty, killing babies in the womb, gun control, immigration, and over-zealous government regulations are important issues. If the Tea Party and FreedomWorks aren’t up to the challenge, perhaps organizations like the League of the South have ideas worth considering. Of course, don’t discuss the LOS with Debbie Dooley because she doesn’t like them.

Visit the League of the South yourself. Make up your own mind instead of listening to the ad hominem attacks from neo-cons like Debbie Dooley. The LOS has many solid, Constitutionally based ideas on solving the complex problems facing this nation. And then go listen to Ray McBerry speak. See if the Winds of Freedom are blowing again for you in this election.

Can the states opt-out of federal health care?

Thomas Jefferson

10th Amendment Supporter Thomas Jefferson

The career politicians in smoke filled backs rooms are busy at work, putting the finishing touches on the new federal government take-over of the private health insurance industry. Once again, your opinion is unimportant to these elected officials. They are going to shackle America with a forced government health care program whether you like it or not. And they have made every dirty deal necessary to ram the bill down our ‘collectivist’ throats.

But wait. Is it all over? Must we stand in the stalls and let yokes be placed on our backs like the cattle the White House calls us?

For those citizens who still believe in liberty, the US Constitution, and the right to be left alone by an increasingly oppressive federal government; there is hope … and even [gulp] change.

That hope and change comes from one word: Nullification. Now the socialists are quick to ridicule, belittle, and discount nullification. They generally call it a southern, racist plan that went out with the civil war.

Sorry. Nullification goes back to our Founding Fathers; Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. They used it in an attempt to disarm an out of control federal government that sought to enslave the citizens of the states with unconstitutional federal laws. Specifically, to put a stop to the Alien and Sedition Acts that were passed in 1798.

States have the right to nullify federal laws that are unconstitutional. Remember, the country was founded under the principles of limited self government, where the federal government was created to serve limited functions such as protection of our borders, to moderate commerce between the states, and to sign international treaties for the states. Clearly, the American Founding Fathers saw the individual states as holding authority over a limited federal government.

But here’s the problem. Many states have sheep grazing in the state government pasture. They languish there siphoning dollars off the taxpayers and doing what they are told by their federal government handlers. In the past, there were people at the state level that stood up to federal agents and interposed themselves between them and the people of their state. A great example of that is the story of Joshua Glover, a runaway slave.

Glover escaped from his slave master in Missouri and made it to Wisconsin where he led a quiet but free life working in a mill. Federal agents eventually caught up with him and had him locked in jail to be tried under the US Fugitive Slave Law. But the outraged citizens of the town banded together and broke Glover out of jail and sneaked him into Canada.

An alleged ringleader in Glover’s escape, Sherman Booth, was tried repeatedly in Federal Court but the Wisconsin State Supreme Court interposed on his behalf saying the Federal Fugitive Slave Law of 1850 was unconstitutional. Here’s just a part of one judge’s decision: “They will never consent,” Judge Smith declared, in referring to the right of the states in the enforcement of the law, “that a slave-owner, his agent, or an officer of the United States, armed with process to arrest a fugitive from service, is clothed with entire immunity from state authority; … [and] such shall not become the degradation of Wisconsin, without meeting as stern remonstrance and resistance as I may be able to interpose, so long as her people impose upon me the duty of guarding their rights and liberties, and maintaining the dignity and sovereignty of their state.”

Wouldn’t you like to have that kind of thinking in your state government? Polls suggest that a majority of Americans are opposed to the federal government’s take over of the US health system. We need states rights candidates at all levels of state government who are not afraid to interpose themselves between an out of control federal government and the people of the sovereign states.

States Rights candidates must be courageous and strong because they’ll be called racist, out of touch, and accused of ‘still fighting the civil war’. For those of you with the courage to support the 9th and 10th Amendment, a/k/a ‘states rights amendments – stand tall next to American Founding Fathers,  Thomas Jefferson and John Adams.

So who will stand in the gap for the people if the federal health bill is passed?

Sneak Attack – How the federal government will launch the final take-over of the US health care industry

Photo of Health Care Resistor

Resistance is futile...

The mainstream mouthpiece media has been dutifully publishing government puff pieces on how the health care bill probably won’t go for a vote till January at the earliest. But don’t you believe it for a second. This is just part of the scam – they want you to go back to sleep. You have been far more vocal than they ever thought you’d be. In fact, you’re really making a lot of socialists mad as heck. Government hijacking of the US health care system should have been a slam-dunk.

After all, the socialists control the public schools, they’ve infiltrated the churches, they have seized the federal government and many state government offices. They also control the media.

You need to understand that this is part of a program that was started over a century ago. Yes – government seizure of the US health care system is part of a long term commitment by socialists to remake America into a state much like the old Soviet Union and China. The people driving this effort will never give up. Past experience assures them that the set-backs they’re experiencing today are temporary and will be overcome by their consistent effort.

Using the state run media, they will work to cool things down. Stories will appear in the newspapers, in magazines, and on government tv ‘news’; suggesting that the government take over of the private health insurance industry is moving to the back burner for awhile. You’re expected to forget about the issue and concentrate on the holidays.

That’s when they’ll spring their trap. One Saturday when no one is paying attention, the bill will come up for a sudden vote thanks to the corrupt Speaker of the House, Pelosi. It will be rammed through as they’ve done a thousand times in the past. Once the bill passes the House, it goes to the Senate, and finally to Obama.

Now is the time to be vigilant. You must pay close attention to every move Congress makes. I believe that some of the House Representatives and Senators care more about taking over the health care system than re-election. It’s my guess they are sacrificial lambs – in position there to place that historic vote.

We need to reach out and call every sitting Congressperson and Senator daily. And tell them we do not want a federal take over of the US health system. But let’s not stop there. We do not want the government involved in the health industry beyond protecting our basic constitutional rights. Let’s work together to stop the madness in the federal government. There are many great solutions to the relatively small number of problems in our health care system. Demand that elected officials end the tyranny that has gripped this nation. Demand that they begin to look at American solutions to our problems – not old, tired, worn-out European anachronisms that serve the ultra-rich and turn the rest of the people into peasants.

If we’re not extra vigilant for the next 6 months, we’ll be getting our government medical ID cards in 2013.

Oxendine – New York Liberal?

Oxendine2How would you like to have a guaranteed job and even an annual cost of living increase – all this personally promised by a candidate for GA Governor? You can if you’re a school teacher. Just give Oxendine your vote. He’ll make sure you get your payback after he’s elected. John Oxendine, Republican candidate for GA Governor, made that generous offer to school teachers in a recent email missive. The promise was so familiar to me that I felt like I was magically transported back to my home state, the People’s Republic of New York. In fact, Ox sounds much more like a New York Democrat than a Republican.

Promises to enrichen government employees with your tax money are common among career politicians. Nowhere is this more evident than in New York (where I’m from) or California. Every politician on Long Island is in the teacher’s unions pockets. Either you promise to continue the cost of living increase and benefits gravy train – or you don’t get elected. That’s why property taxes on Long Island are typically $10,000 per year. That’s right. $200 a week just for the privilege of owning a home on Long Island. And property taxes are double and triple that in the ‘better’ neighborhoods

Long Islanders of course love to brag how great their school district is. Meanwhile, their children can’t read, spell, or do any math beyond adding and subtracting. And as for knowledge of history, current events, or the Founding Fathers of this great nation – well as they say in New York – forget about it. When you’re paying $200 per week to live on a tiny piece of land in a crowded suburb I guess all you can say is – ‘Our school district is the best… ” And you’d think they would learn. But they haven’t. So taxes go up every year and nobody says a word. They just move away – in droves. That’s why New York state is in dire financial shape. So let’s elect the same kind of people here – right?

Oxendine is a career politician who could run for Governor in New York with his sound bite platitudes. And he’s expertly doing what all career politicians do. Using the power of government to take from one person and give to another, he’s making promises to voter’s blocks like the teacher’s union that if he’s elected, he will guarantee jobs and regular salary increases. How many of us would love to have that cushy arrangement?  Wouldn’t it be a great stress reliever to have a great big sugar daddy in government to remove all our job stresses?

It’s incredible that Oxendine would have the gall to run as a Republican. But he has demonstrated that the days of knowing what a Republican or Democrat stands for are long gone. And he has proven that you must scrutinize the words and actions of each candidate and forget about labels. Candidates that promise to hand over your hard earned wages to another group of people so they can get elected, deserve to be defeated – Republican or Democrat.

That’s why I have supported Ray McBerry from the beginning. McBerry’s promises  are completely different from the career politicians running for Governor. He actually will work to eliminate state income taxes and property taxes and replace them with a fair sales tax. This benefits everyone in Georgia that works for a living and doesn’t depend on the government for hand-outs. This policy creates a strong environment for business growth that leads to good paying jobs for those who wish to work. And more importantly, it puts real dollars back into the pockets of every Georgian – not the privileged few that politicians love to appeal to.

But there’s more to McBerry than lowering taxes. He stands on a firm foundation of liberty and freedom that is refreshing in a time where every politician seems bent on eliminating our rights and taking our money. Taxation is a government form of tyranny. They take – you give. If you don’t give, the government enforcement agents take you away.

That wasn’t the vision of the Founding Fathers of America. Limited self government and personal responsibility were the foundations of our exceptional success as a nation. Career politicians concerned only with making themselves richer and more powerful have corrupted this once great country and left us in the crisis we’re in today.

Ray McBerry,  Constitutionalist, Christian, Statesman, Father, and local businessman, promises to do his part as Governor to create more jobs, lower each Georgian’s cost of living, and restore liberty and freedom for all. And he’s the only one making those promises. That makes it very easy to choose your next Governor for the sovereign state of Georgia.

If you like big government, regular tax hikes, and more restrictions on your life, just pick any of the brand ‘X’ candidates running for Governor. If you are passionate about liberty, freedom, opportunity, and the right to own your property without having to rent it from the government, then vote for Ray McBerry.

US judiciary tramples citizens of Georgia

Georgia citizens were handed another crushing defeat this week under the hob nailed boots of an out of control US federal judiciary. The Georgia Voter Verification System was just rejected by the US Department of Justice on the dubious basis that it unfairly singles out blacks, Hispanics, and Asians by making it harder for them to vote. How does this law allegedly discriminate against ‘minorities’? It simply asks them, as it does everybody else to provide proof of US citizenship. All you need to do is supply your social security number and a valid driver’s license. As long as it’s legitimate, you’re permitted to vote.

Sounds reasonable doesn’t it?

But when you have a sitting President who was elected without the prerequisite background check to determine if he himself is a natural born US citizen – a requirement to be a US president – we can all understand why anything goes in today’s America. And anything will go on future elections in Georgia if the Federal government is permitted to swing their totalitarian club at the State of Georgia. Without sound verification of voter citizenship, virtually anybody can walk into a polling place and vote. This is perfect if you want to promote voter fraud. As a former poll clerk, I remember the process well. It was more than fair and legitimate voters got their opportunity to vote for the candidate of their choice without any threats of intimidation.

Compare this to an incident in PA, where uniformed Black Panthers armed with nightsticks stood ‘guard’ at a Philadelphia polling place during the last presidential election. Voters were intimidated and even threatened while receiving racial slurs. The incident was so provocative, a prominent civil rights activist from the 1960’s was prompted to call it ‘the most blatant form of voter intimidation’ he had ever seen. Worse than events reported in Mississippi during the 60’s. The Justice Department initiated a suit against the 3 Black Panthers involved but like magic, all the charges were dropped.

The federal government exists to serve the state governments not the other way around. That’s the way it was intended by our Founding Fathers and is evident in the US Constitution. Georgia needs strong leadership at all levels in its state government to stand up for the people of Georgia and tell Washington to go home and not come back.

Consider this wording from HR470, a bill currently sitting in the Georgia State Legislature: WHEREAS, any act of Congress, executive order of the President of the United States, or judicial opinion of any federal court which assumes a power not delegated to the government of the United States and which serves to diminish the liberty of any of the several states or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution by the government of the United States. And be thrown out! This bill should thrill all Georgia freedom lovers and serve as a reminder to the federal government – don’t tread on us. Call your state representatives today and ask them to support HR470.
