WE ARE AT WAR!
Anyone who has followed this blog knows by now that I believe the Federal Government is busted, and broken in every respect of the word. Our leaders for the most are totally corrupt and completely morally bankrupt. They no longer serve to protect We the People or the Constitution that they are sworn to defend.
Our last line of defense is the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution, that says, "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 one sentence statement of law is our only hope against the sweeping tidal wave of socialism that is threatening to enslave us all. For the near future, we must give up on fixing the run-away Federal Government and focus our efforts on building some strong barricades at the State Level.
Already, numerous states have filed Tenth Amendment actions against the Federal Governments intrusion into the daily lives of its citizens. I read recently that 40 states have some form of Tenth Amendment legislation pending. I urge, no, I strongly urge everyone to write all of your state legislators and encourage them to support any and all bills that will strengthen the firewall between We the People and the fire storm that is rushing our way.
In the hopes that some will actually take action, I have an actual letter that I sent to my State Representative and State Senator. Feel free to use any part of it. Just fill in the blanks and make it your own letter. Following the letter is a copy of a sample Tenth Amendment bill. Attach it to your letter to your Legislator.
The Honorable ______________( Full Name)
(State name)____House of Representatives or __________ Senate
Address, get from this link: http://www.statelocalgov.net/index.cfm or Google, "who are my ( State name) legislators and then enter zip code.
Dear Representative/Senator( Last name ),
I wish to first thank you for being my reprehensive to the Missouri House. I am not acquainted with you other than the knowledge that you have demonstrated great courage by willingly swimming in shark infested waters for the sake of your constituents. For this, you have my heartfelt thanks.
I have never been politically active other than to vote and complain. I, like the boiled frog, had become comfortable and complacent. And, like so many of We the People, I have awakened from my apathetic stupor and want to take a more active role as a citizen. I have become involved with the Tenth Amendment Center and the Tea Party Movement. I believe that Washington is a cesspool of corruption and no longer serves to protect the Constitution. The State is our last line of defense against the stifling tide of socialist/progressive programs. Please support any and all Tenth Amendment legislation.
If I can be of assistance to you or your staff in your efforts to represent us, I would honored.
Again, thanks for serving.

An Act to render null and void certain unconstitutional laws enacted by the Congress of the United States, taking control over the health insurance industry and mandating that individuals purchase health insurance under threat of penalty.
SECTION 1. The legislature of the State of ____________ finds that:
1. The People of the several states comprising the United States of America created the federal government to be their agent for certain enumerated purposes, and nothing more.
2. The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution defines the total scope of federal power as being that which has been delegated by the people of the several states to the federal government, and all power not delegated to the federal government in the Constitution of the United States is reserved to the states respectively, or to the people themselves.
3. The assumption of power that the federal government has made by enacting the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” interferes with the right of the People of the State of _____________ to regulate health care as they see fit, and makes a mockery of James Madison’s assurance in Federalist #45 that the “powers delegated” to the Federal Government are “few and defined”, while those of the States are “numerous and indefinite.”
SECTION 2. NEW LAW
A new section of law to be codified in the [STATE] Statutes as Section [NUMBER] of Title [NUMBER], unless there is created a duplication in numbering, reads as follows:
A. The Legislature of the State of _______________ declares that the federal law known as the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act,” signed by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, is not authorized by the Constitution of the United States and violates its true meaning and intent as given by the Founders and Ratifiers, and is hereby declared to be invalid in this state, shall not be recognized by this state, is specifically rejected by this state, and shall be considered null and void and of no effect in this state.
B. It shall be the duty of the legislature of this State to adopt and enact any and all measures as may be necessary to prevent the enforcement of the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” within the limits of this State.
C. Any official, agent, or employee of the United States government or any employee of a corporation providing services to the United States government that enforces or attempts to enforce an act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the government of the United States in violation of this act shall be guilty of a felony and upon conviction must be punished by a fine not exceeding five thousand dollars ($5,000.00), or a term of imprisonment not exceeding five (5) years, or both.
D. Any public officer or employee of the State of ____________ that enforces or attempts to enforce an act, order, law, statute, rule or regulation of the government of the United States in violation of this act shall be guilty of a misdemeanor punishable by imprisonment in the county jail not exceeding two (2) years or by a fine not exceeding One Thousand Dollars ($1,000.00) or both such fine and imprisonment.
E. Any aggrieved party shall also have a private action against any person violating the provisions of subsections (C) or (D).
SECTION 3. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Please send this to your state representatives. Get to know them and get them to know you. If they are responsive, work to keep them defending you, If not, then work to get rid of them. That simple. But you need to know the difference and this is our last line of defense. Hear me!
