MAKE A CALL FOR MICHIGAN SOVEREIGNTY TODAY!


I spoke with Rep. Opssommer yesterday and he informed that he would be having a meeting with Mark Meadows THIS WEDNESDAY about HJR YY

As you recall HJR YY would amend Michigan’s Constitution by creating a Federalism Commission to charged with monitoring and reviewing federal laws and mandates to determine if they violate the Michigan Constitution or if they violate such areas as the 9th and 10th Amendments of the US Constitution. If any law is considered unconstitutional then legislation is introduced to nullify it. HJY YY also includes Memorandums of Understanding which have created a “shadow government” by contacts that often exceed authority.

HJR YY is in House Judiciary Committee now.
Committees can be where bills go to die.
We need to get it out and on the committee calendar!

YOU CAN HELP BY CALLING OR E-MAIL TODAY

Tell Rep Meadows you want HJR YY to be put on the Committee Calendar for a hearing

Rep. Mark Meadows, (Chair)
Phone: (517) 373-1786
Fax: (517) 373-5717
Email markmeadows@house.mi.gov


Together we can Take Michigan Back!

When Character was King


(To purchase “Return to Reagansim” items Click HERE )

As we remember “the Gipper” today on the anniversary of his birth, lets not just recall one of the most successful presidents in the history of our country but the man, a man of ideas, principals and faith. And then carry on with those principals, ideas and faith for only then we will be successful in saving our country from the current regime.

Our party must be based on the kind of leadership that grows and takes its strength from the people. Any organization is in actuality only the lengthened shadow of its members. A political party is a mechanical structure created to further a cause.

The cause, not the mechanism, brings and holds the members together. And our cause must be to rediscover, reassert and reapply America’s spiritual heritage to our national affairs.

Then with God’s help we shall indeed be as a city upon a hill with the eyes of all people upon us.

40th President of the United States

Understanding the Supremacy Clause

A recent article in the New York Times covered the growth of state-level resistance to a future national health care plan. For example, in 2010, voters in Arizona will have a chance to approve a state constitutional amendment that would effectively ban national health care in that state. Legislators in Florida and Michigan have already introduced similar legislation, and potentially, 15 other states will do so in the 2010 legislative session.

But heres something fundamentally important that NYT writer Monica Davey claims in her article:

The Constitutions supremacy clause ordinarily allows federal law to, in essence, trump a state law that conflicts with it

A best, this is a highly-misleading statement.

There are two main points to make here:

1. The supremacy clause does not allow federal law to trump state law in all situations, or even ordinarily as Davey claims. It only does so when both laws are in pursuance of a power that has been delegated to the federal government by We the People. in the Constitution.

2. We know that this is the case because Monicas version of the supremacy clause was actually proposed by leading founders and rejected. When the Constitution was being drafted, James Madison and others proposed what came to be known as the Virginia Plan. A major part of this plan was to give the congress a veto over state laws. It was defeated. That means, in plain English, the founders considered this idea, and said no. And Davey is irrefutably wrong in her claim.

So we know from this short lesson that the supremacy clause did not authorize the power that Davey is claiming. In reality, things are pretty much the other way around. The biggest Constitutional problems that actually exist in this country are those times when the federal government exercises powers not delegated to it by We the People. And that happens far more often than not.

Unfortunately, though, not enough people know this important history of the Virginia Plan, and this basic premise of the Constitution, so theyre easily swayed by patently false statements by people like Davey and the New York

20 Minute Activist

Greetings Michigan Patriots,

socialized medicine1Can you give 20 minutes to help save your country?

Right now behind closed doors deals are being made on a Bill that will change the future of this country, HR3200, the 1,000 page Health Care Bill. A posible vote is expected next week. With or without amendments this bill is a massive Unconstitutional government take over of our lives. With or without amendments this Bill needs to be KILLED. We need to start fresh with a no more than a 10 page bill that is reform not control and is placed online as promised to give citizens an opportunity to read it. No Bill needs to be a thousand pages. We need to start fresh with, Tort Reform, Health Saving account, tax breaks, and the ability to shop around and buy health insurance across states line. Choices nor Control. Liberty not Bondage.

1. Can you give 20 minutes a day until you have called call ALL Republicans and tell them so? Unfortunately, it’s some Republicans that are willing to compromise and will help HR3200 to pass. We CAN NOT let them

Here is a List of Senate Republicans

Here is a phone script or Fax page to use.
Add or subtract as so desired. My name is____ I am calling from Michigan, my zip code is_____I am calling to tell Rep or Senator ______ that HR3200 needs to be killed. With or without amendments it is massive government control. We need to start fresh with a 10 page Bill that includes tort reform, medical savings account, tax breaks, buying insurance across state lines. We want choice NOT control.
If the Congressman votes for HR3200 in any form, I will do whatever I can to see they do not return to Congress. The very future of our country is at stake. Thank you
As many reps as you can call or Fax in 20 minutes, start again the next day.

Tim Walberg(7th distrist) to run for U.S. House of Representatives

“I trust the American people, while Mark Schauer trusts big government”

Tipton, MI- Tim Walberg today announced he is running for the U.S. House of Representatives.

“The people of south central Michigan are hard working, entrepreneurial and care deeply for their community, but are struggling mightily due to excessive government spending, recent tax increases, and a big government that is squashing hope and economic opportunities,” said Walberg

“I cannot sit idly while Congressman Schauer votes to raise taxes, spend trillions we don’t have and bring the failed Granholm strategies he advanced in Michigan to Washington D.C. In contrast, I will fight for Michigan families by working to balance the budget, move America toward energy independence, and provide across-the-board tax relief to reward hard work and spur job creation. I trust the American people, while Mark Schauer trusts big government,” Walberg concluded.

Background:

Congressman Tim Walberg represented the people of the 7th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives from 2007 to 2009. He fought to make government live within its means, prevent tax increases, move America toward energy independence, make health care more affordable, support our troops, secure our border, and defend our traditional values.
