The Constitution Forbids It

The Constitution is clear where legislation must be proposed; the House of congress. Article I section VII and VIII make clear that the responsibility for legislation at the federal level is the responsibility of the House. The idea that federal bureaucracies can make “rules” that become laws that include punishment for breaking such laws, is unconstitutional. The EPA, FCC, FAA, and every one of the other thousand agencies have no authority to set laws for the states.

Let’s take for instance the EPA that has bankrupted farmers in California to “save” a small fish that finds its way into the irrigation system or the recent FCC ruling to start regulating the internet. Federal agencies have taken the legitimate role of oversight to the unconstitutional role of creating rules and laws that have squashed businesses creativity and ability to expand operations.

Some may argue that the congress has already legislated the rules and the bureaucracies are just enforcing the laws they have created but this is simply not true. The federal bureaucracies have been expanding their roles and creating what is ultimately legislation by implementing processes that end run the congress and the legitimate creation of law…

Health care freedom legislation filed in Kentucky

With the filing of House Bill 105, Kentucky joined 10 other states seeking to establish some level of health care freedom for its citizens in 2011.

HB 105 declares, “No federal or state law or rule shall compel, directly or indirectly, a person, employer, or health care provider in the Commonwealth of Kentucky to participate in a health care system.”

The bill also allows for Kentuckians to pay directly for any health care service and exempts them from fines or penalties if they, or their employers, make a direct payment to any health care provider.

Want To Get Involved? Here’s How!

Want to get involved and not know how? The question was asked of me this morning on the Aroostook Watchmen Radio Program with Steve Martin and Jack McCarthy and I immediately thought of putting this out. There are many passionate activists around America today who have been concerned and follow the events with a close eye. There are others who wish to be involved, but they don’t know how.

We all attend rallies, local meetings, and swap perspectives through our political discourse, expressing discontent and debating the truth. But does action ever occur? Many of us fall into the trap of, as I like to put it, showing up to the Pep Rally and not showing up to the big game. This isn’t because we’re not willing, but because we don’t know how. I’m confronted with the question often and help get people up to speed. But there may be more people out there, like you and I, who wish to help in bettering the world around us.

Nullification is the rising solution to the unconstitutional actions of the Federal Government, as people are becoming aware. It is not the final solution, but it’s the major first step in returning the powers back to where they belong, in the States. Advancing nullification will result in restoring the balance of government and ensuring that our processes become more accessible to everyday citizens, as opposed to being available to only career politicians and lawyers.
