How YOUR State Should Respond to Obama’s Health Care Reform

Obama’s health care reform will likely pass in some form even with the efforts of those who have bravely railed against such lunacy. The dorks on Capitol Hill aren’t concerned with a majority of Americans who oppose such poppycock. Neither are these elitists troubled that the States are being sucked of every ounce of power which the constitution squarely reserves to them. In my estimation, these political punks are starting to look as the European tyrants must have looked to our Beloved Founding Fathers some 233 years ago.

Unfortunately, the health care bill is certain to soil everyone’s britches when they see just how much their taxes will go up! I believe the protests should continue, but I also believe that now is the time for the States to step in and declare their right to reject the Federal usurpation of its authority. It’s time for a Declaration of Nullification by each State. And believe it or not, nullification is an American political tradition which goes all the way back to Founders Thomas Jefferson and James Madison.

In 1798 Thomas J. and Mr. Madison put together resolutions for two states which felt that the Federal government had stepped beyond their sphere of jurisdiction. The resolution said in part, “the … States …are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their general [federal] government.”

And after speaking of the power of the States (10th amendment), look closely at these words from the Wise One: “and that whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.” I like that last part, “unauthoritative, void, and of no force.” Wow. When our federal friends step beyond their realm of power, the States have it within their own power to individually nullify those Federal laws. That’s deep, my friends.

How is it done, you ask? Just like it was done back then. Right now our leaders on the State level need to begin drafting Resolutions of Nullification much like several States have recently achieved with a Declaration of Sovereignty. Go Oklahoma! The resolutions should say that the constitution reserves the right of health care to the States and that any legislation imposed on our State regarding this Obama health care reform shall be declared unauthoritative, void, and of no force, and will immediately be nullified by this State if such is passed.

I’m convinced that the protests are helping. Now it’s time for our State officials to join the struggle. It’s my fervent belief that a Declaration of Nullification by a good percentage of the States just might help. Will it solve our problem? Nobody knows, but the surest and only way to get back any power we still might have is to declare it now before it’s everlastingly too late.
