Three and Counting. Colorado Counties Rejecting NDAA

Colorado – taking a stand against the NDAA. Fremont, El Paso, now Weld County say NO to Indefinite Detention.

Some people argue that principles of state sovereignty would be a pointless strategy in their state. They argue that their statehouse is even more corrupt than the Feds and in some cases, they may have a point.

Fortunately there is much that can be done at the county level. Sources are telling Tenth Amendment Center that there are a high number of counties in Colorado alone that are ready to turn back the NDAA.

In recent weeks, the counties of Fremont and El Paso passed resolutions opposing sections 1021 and/or 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act – what some refer to as the “kidnapping provisions” of the act. And this week, Weld County joined them in this stand by passing a unanimous resolution stating its “opposition to the authority affirmed in Section 1021” of the legislation Monday.

“The issue at hand is not a publicity stunt, it’s not politics … It’s the constitution,” Scooter McGee, radio talk show host for 1310 KFKA News Talk, told commissioners Monday before they voted on the issue.

Tennessee vs. the Federal Playground Bully

cross-posted from the Tennessee Tenth Amendment Center

On the heels of the passage of the Tennessee Health Freedom Act last year, Governor Haslam and the Tennessee General Assembly continue their quiet work spearheading the backdoor implementation of Obamacare in Tennessee.

Bills like HB2839 by Rep. Charles Sargent have been introduced into the legislature, designed to build the exchanges required to comply with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. While the bill was withdrawn today from the Tennessee General Assembly due to protest, this is still a sobering reality check with regards to the strength of will and character of our state government (or lack thereof).

In fact, Governor Bill Haslam has even accepted money from the federal government to build the health care exchange.
