When Did the Bill of Rights Become Un-American?

Democrat Montana Governor Schweitzer made an unannounced visit to the Democrat Caucus Monday to voice his concern over what he calls these un-American and unconstitutional bills. – “When we say, that we will nullify a portion of federal law that is simply saying that we don’t consider ourselves bound by the constitution of the United States of America, that’s very dangerous territory,” says Governor Schweitzer.

Republican House Rep. Derek Skees, sponsor of the Montana Nullification Reaffirmation Act, replied with – “the Governor isn’t qualified to deem bills unconstitutional. He isn’t any more of a scholar in constitutionality of law then any of us.”

Rep. Skees bill reaffirms the state of Montana’s 10th Amendment right to hold the federal government in check and within the limited powers delegated to the FED in the US Constitution. Governor Schweitzer has publicly deemed that right “unconstitutional” and even “un-American.”

In order for the Governor to be right, the Bill of Rights would have to be “unconstitutional” and even “un-American,” as Rep. Skees bill is based upon Amendments Nine and Ten of the US Constitution.

Montana, Arizona and Tennessee take the lead on broad-based Nullification

As the battle for states’ rights heat up across the country, Montana, Arizona and Tennessee have leaped out into the lead by introducing the first broad-based State Nullification Reaffirmation Act designed to return the power to the people and their states and rein in federal government abuses of misinterpreted power.

The Model Legislation was researched and created by the Constitutional Justice Division of Wyoming based United States Patriots Union.

This model legislation aims to reaffirm and reassert broad-based sovereign state’s rights under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of the U.S. Constitution by providing both the constitutional grounds and legislative methods by which states can swiftly nullify any past, present or future unconstitutional acts of the federal government.

The primary parts of the model include the following;

a) Establish the constitutional grounds for state nullification

b) Establish a swift method for nullification of any unconstitutional federal act, past, present or future

c) Establish that only the US Supreme Court has “original jurisdiction” under Article III of the US Constitution

d) Establish that the people (not the courts) have the final word
