4 More Governors Bow Down to DC

So now a handful of Governors- one from my current state of WA, have ‘banded together’ to petition the Federal government.

Their demand?

That the Federal Government initiate a multi-year process of examining new evidence that medical marijuana COULD be useful medically.  The process goes like this:

  1. DEA does it’s own analysis on medical cannabis
  2. The FDA does IT’S own analysis, reviewing it’s previous work
  3. The DHHS does the same thing as the FDA
  4. The FDA & DHHS then submit THEIR findings to the DEA for even further review
  5. The DEA, unelected and EXPENSIVE bureaucrats make their decision

And just where does the bidding of We the People fit in the above process?  It doesn’t.

2011: Some Personal Highlights

I wanted to share my personal list of top experiences and milestones from the past 12 months that have me going strong into the new year:

Nullify Now! Los Angeles – This event was possibly the most challenging Nullify Now! event of the entire tour.  The stakes were high- we could not allow anything short of our goal in our home city!  What we somehow pulled off was more festival than meeting, with live music, art on display, panoramic views and the hardest hitting Tom Woods speech of the entire tour.  Nearly 500 came to the event, at least 30% of which were young people.  It was a day I’ll never forget.

Fundraising Call Center – For the first time as an organization, we paid for help to raise money.  Nick Hankoff and Rajani Elek came in an made hundreds of calls to ask for financial support.  To our surprise, most of those calls ended with “thank you for calling me”.

The Time Has Come

As we all set our intentions for 2012, I want to leave you with a thought.

One of my many tasks at the Tenth Amendment Center is to spend some time getting to know our prospects- those who have volunteered to take on an organizational role with the Tenth Amendment Center.  Today, the recruit I was talking to said something that stuck with me:

“Well, it seemed clear that it’s time for me to go from reading about what’s happening, to doing something about it.”

As I see it, there are basically three categories of Americans:

The first, are those who go through life, believing everything that the establishment tells them.  This category is shrinking fast.

Baby Boomers: From Selfish to Selfless

A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit. -Greek proverb One thing that’s certain about this movement to save the republic from our own centralized state, is that the fruits of our labor are far, far off.  You cannot reverse decades of centralization in one…

We Don’t Need the Supreme Court to Give us Permission!

It doesn’t matter what the Supreme Court decides about Obamacare. That’s exactly what we’ll be telling folks March 31st in Philadelphia.

Expecting Federal courts to reduce the Federal machine is anything but a sure bet- in fact it’s downright unlikely.  In preparation for the Supreme Court hearing the Federal health care case the week of March 26th, we at Tenth Amendment Center have decided to move Nullify Now! Philadelphia to a new date- March 31st to be exact.

This event will be one of our most power packed Nullify Now! offerings- now with two additional breakout rooms, full of information such as- why we can end Obamacare and any other unconstitutional Federal mandate in our states, whether the Supreme Court gives their blessing or not.

Are Tenther Governors on the Horizon?

Your Governor took an oath to the Constitution of the United States- one which they have not followed.

Each of the 50 governors have enormous potential to lead the process of breaking apart the power centralized in DC and return it to We the People. Despite this potential we have yet to see even one strong willed example, willing not only to talk the talk but also do what America’s founders said must be done in the face of Federal tyranny. This has been true for decades.

At least two States now have a chance to vote for Gubernatorial candidates who promise to do just that.

Is SOPA Constitutional?: A Layman’s View

I’m no degreed scholar- I don’t even have a 4 year education, so why is it that I can dive into the ‘murky waters’ of the constitution and feel confident about what I find?  Because the Constitution was crafted to be understood by AVERAGE people- not to be the exclusive territory of academia. Many times…
