The obama in his own words…

February 18, 2010

The epic failure that is known as the impostor in chief does a great job of pulling the wool over peoples eyes. However, some people are not so sheepish as others. You be the Judge.

Hat Tip to Texas Fred!

In another homage to the pointy eared vulcan Fred presents us with this. Real I.D. anyone?

Wyoming10A Project — Sheridan Kickoff Event

January 18, 2010

The Tenth Amendment protects the states from federal oppression, or at least it is supposed to.

Wyoming10A Project — Sheridan Kickoff Event
In Sheridan – Downtown Area

Sheridan Senior Center
211 Smith Street
Date: Saturday, January 23rd
Time: 3:00pm

We have been told that all we can do is enact sovereignty “resolutions” to push back at an over reaching central government. That doing any more will be a sign of waging war.

In light of the fact that these House Joint Resolutions will do absolutely nothing and many of the same legislators that will support such a resolution actually voted “yes” to a over reaching federal mandate called Real ID. Proving that these politicians are bought and paid for by federal money. These same politicians want us to believe that the following words are without meaning!  I believe we can come to an entirely different conclusion.

From the Declaration of Declaration of Independence– July 4, 1776
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

From the Wyoming Constitution– September 30, 1889

97-1-001. Power inherent in the people.
All power is inherent in the people, and all free governments are founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety and happiness; for the advancement of these ends they have at all times an inalienable and indefeasible right to alter, reform or abolish the government in such manner as they may think proper.

97-1-007. No absolute, arbitrary power.
Absolute, arbitrary power over the lives, liberty and property of freemen exists nowhere in a republic, not even in the largest majority.

The truth is — All power belongs to “we the people” and this power is inseparable from us, the government is a republic founded on the authority of the governed (us) and we are to remain free from absolute, arbitrary power over our lives, liberty and property. Government is instituted for our own peace, safety and happiness. Whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it.

Tea Time Is Over!  —  it is up to us to alter the course we are on and put a stop to the Kingship Rule of the government.

If you agree, join me and others at the Wyoming10A Kick Off in Sheridan, see you there!

REAL ID: Show Congress you’re paying real close attention to REAL ID

October 20, 2009

Congress exhibits yet another example of broken clock politics…

REAL ID: Congress is cutting the appropriation for the REAL ID national ID card — by $40 million. That’s good! But they’re still planning to spend $60 million on it in 2010. That’s bad!

Please send Congress a letter objecting to any further funding for REAL ID.

You can copy what I said in my letter to Congress . . .

I’m upset that Congress just appropriated $60 million for the REAL ID national identification scheme. I’ve asked you repeatedly to repeal REAL ID, and replace it with nothing. I’m repeating my request today.

I do not want a centralized national ID system. It lays the foundation for a police state, and will do little or nothing to improve security. Instead, it will subject me to increased risk of identity theft, and eventually entangle me in new Congressional schemes to do things like control my health care decisions.

I also object because the REAL ID Act was passed under false pretenses. It was rejected three times by the U.S. Senate, and was only enacted because it was added to a larger bill containing funding for disaster relief and Iraq. REAL ID never could have passed on its own merits, but now that we have it, we can’t seem to get rid of it. But you, as my representative, can do something about this . . .

Please introduce legislation to repeal REAL ID and replace it with nothing. I’m paying close attention to how you represent me.

END OF SAMPLE LETTER
