M.A.P.S is coming….Are YOU Ready?

M A P S

Introducing M.A.P.S…

Dear Fellow Patriot and Constitutional Conservative:

As you know, we need to ensure that Constitutional Conservatives get elected this November so that we can end the Bailout, TARP, Porkulus, Obamacare madness both in Washington and in our own backyard!
As the TEA Party Movement grows and matures, more citizen activists are asking for concrete ways that they can put their energies to work for candidates who will carry their message of constitutionally limited government and fiscal responsibility to Washington, Lansing, county seats, city halls, even school boards. With so many seats up for grabs this year, knowing where to donate time and resources can be overwhelming!

To address this growing need for action-oriented opportunities which will put lead on the proverbial target to stem the tide of the job-killing, freedom-threatening, Obama/Pelosi/Reid agenda both locally and nationally, Grassroots in Michigan and the Lansing, MI TEA Party are pleased to announce the launch of the Mobile Action Patriot Strikeforce, or M.A.P.S.

Time: May 13, 2010 from 7pm to 9pm
Location: Community Faith Church
Street: 2495 North Cedar Street (behind Krogers)
City/Town: Holt, MI 48842

As the TEA Party Movement has never been “one-size-fits-all,” some TEA Party activists may choose to engage directly with their local political party, while others may choose to work directly with specific campaigns. M.A.P.S provides a unique opportunity for Constitutional Conservative grassroots activists to come together, as folks did to elect Scott Brown,to provide a manpower boost when and where it is most needed. In doing so, we insure that our principles and values are being advanced in the places that matter most.

Don’t wait!

There’s much work to be done between now and November and the stakes have never been higher.Sign up today at Grassroots in Michigan

We know we want to Take Michigan Back! We also know how to get there from here. We’ve got our M.A.P.S! Now it’s time to roll! Don’t miss out on the fun.

TAX DAY TEA PARTY AT YOUR STATE CAPITOL!

When:April 15, 2010 Noon-2:00pm
Where:State Capital Building 100 N.Capitol Ave,Lansing, MI

April 15th marks the day when many Americans pay more than their fair share in taxes. Grass roots patriots in Michigan will join thousands across the state of Michigan and the nation to voice our opposition to big government and spending that has pushed the federal deficit to record levels as part of the continuing movement of nationwide “Tea Parties.”

The protest is one of hundreds to be held at the same time in cities and towns all across Michigan and the United States. Tea parties will also be held in Chicago, Washington, Atlanta, Anchorage, Honolulu, Phoenix, Sacramento, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Fort Worth, San Diego, Portland, Ore., and at hundreds of other locations.

Joan Fabiano of Grassroots in Michigan says, “As Michiganders we have seen the results of progressive tax and spend policies. After eight years Michigan is in shambles. Unemployment is at almost 15%, the Car Capitol of the World has seen a government take over of GM, jobs evaporate, foreclosures rise and families leave.”

Fabiano, goes on to say,” 2010 is the year that We the People will “Take Michigan Back” from the politicians and progressive policies that have brought Michigan down a road towards ruin and economic destruction.”

BE THERE!

Just in..Bernanke Warns of Dangers Posed by Deficit

Bernanke on the topic of deficits and government spending: “To avoid large and unsustainable budget deficits, the nation will ultimately have to choose among higher taxes, modifications to entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare, less spending on everything else from education to defense, or some combination of the above”. Republicans are opposed to raising taxes, and democrats are loathe cut cut entitlement programs, the combination of which help to explain why our country has such massive debt problems……

ASSERT MICHIGAN’S SOVEREIGHTY! SUPPORT HJR YY!


Why is HJR YY so critically needed?

If enacted into law and formally approved by voters, HJR YY would:

Amend the state Constitution to Create a Federalism Commission bicameral and bipartisan commission
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

The “why” behind HJR YY is two-fold:
Firstly, in cases where the Joint Federalism Commission determines a violation exists, the law will provide for an expedited process for the commission to then push appropriate legislation to nullify to the floor for voting by all members within 10 session days.
The second “why” that makes this legislation necessary is:

Because of the increasing role of so called “Memorandums of Understanding,” “Compacts,” and other agreements between Michigan and other governments, most notably at the federal level.

Most voters are not aware of what a “Memorandum of Understanding” is, or that they can carry the formal force of law.

In many cases such memorandums are created under dubious authority. In other cases, the legislature does vote to grant authority for a memorandum to be entered into, but then what the memorandum actually does often exceeds that authority, or delves into areas that are beyond the scope of the authorizing legislation.

HJR YY has been Referred to Judiciary Committee

IMMEDIATE ACTION TO TAKE:
Call the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee to have HJR YY placed on the calendar for a meeting

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

Request that legislation to put on calendar
BE COURTEOUS WHEN CONTACTING THE OFFICES

We will monitor the Judiciary Committee Calendar when HJR YY is placed on the Committee Calendar to implement the rest of the ACTION PLAN.
