Civil War Erupts, As States Challenge Authority of Federal Government

With a defeat likely in the battle against Obama-care, the war
moves from the federal level to the state level as state legislators
position to challenge the authority of an out of control Federal
Government

Strong sovereign states are turning out to be the only defense against an overbearing federal government, in its efforts to increase its size and power. If these unconstitutional power grabs are not stopped, then the likely hood of the USA entering into the new world order becomes a very real possibility in the near future.

We are in the midst of a socialist revolution with democrats pushing us into unconstitutional territory in order to end what is left of our constitutional republic and forcing us into a Venezuela styled socialist society

Excerpts From Idahostatemen.com

Otter is the first governor to sign a law saying the state will defy a
requirement to buy insurance


At least 36 other states are considering similar legislation in response
to the drive by President Obama and congressional Democrats to expand
health insurance to 30 million uninsured Americans, in part by requiring
them to buy insurance. Virginia has enacted similar legislation, but it
became law without a signature by Gov. Bob McDonnell.


The ivory tower folks will tell you, 'No, they're not going anywhere,'"
Otter said. "But I'll tell you what: You get 36 states, that's a
critical mass. That's a constitutional mass."


"We, as a state, have said we are sovereign," said Rep. Raul Labrador,
R-Eagle, who is running for the Republican nomination in the 1st
Congressional District. "We will decide for ourselves whether we want
legislation dealing with health care."

    As the States get involved, this will surely get us on the higher road to incur more leverage against this atrocity being committed by this one term president. I just hope and pray a lot more will follow suit. There are power in numbers, even though this idiot doesn't believe there is.

    hmmm.. takes 38 states to amend the constitution. We are close to the number needed for.. impeaching BO, term limits, changing retirement rules for legislators, weakening the role of the federal government, strenghtening states rights, abolishing the EPA, the Dept of Education, the FDA (which does NOTHING except promote & protect the drug companies), Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac.. wow...

    Well, there are a few issues here, and we have to be selectful on what to approach. Can't do all at one time as it will confuse the issues and challenges. Decide what is most important and go from there. Nov 2010 is the first issue for most of us, and let the lawyers and states take their part in their own time. We need to focus and do it intelligently.

    LOL.. I know, Pablo. You are right. I was just getting giddy thinking about the possibilities.. I think term limits and strenghtening states rights/weakening the federal government is probably plenty to take on.

    We would not be in this state if it weren't for the whore democrats, and who sold their 'vote' (read soul) to O'blah blah. Many challengers, yes, but I could hope the democrats have their children aborted with this paid abortions bill. I can dream, can't I ?

    Pablo, I am a staunch Patriot, Constitutionalist and Conservative. But Bush did his part to get us here also. There is plenty of blame to go around for both parties... including us. If we hadn't trusted the Republicans and the MSM for the last 10 yrs, BO wouldn't be in office right now.

    States have been following suit on a number of federal laws through this Obamanation Administration so they aren't the only ones making history! Between all the Constitutional violations and criminal activities behind those closed doors, a New Revolution of Civil Priorities are now in motion and the people will be heard rather they wish to listen or not. The Fate of the Presidency with Bribery is at hand!

    Once those fines, penalties, jail expenses, and changing mandates start to take hold against Americans...well, we shall see just how much lower they will go!

    The one thing that can stop the states is the withholding of federal money. While I believe in the 10th amendment and I support every state's right to say NO to the feds, I also believe that money talks. Unfortunately, I have seen states cave before because of filthy lucre and I am ashamed ot them when they do. Schools, roads, natural disasters, and on and on the list goes of dependency on the feds. It would take a lot of courage for states to hold out and deprive their people of the money which comes with control. This is going to get very ugly very quickly. I hope the rage level stays high and I hope we save our beloved constitution from these traitors. I greive for my grandchildrens' futures with this government!

    If the federal government did only those things allowed by the Constitution, it wouldn't have all that money to throw around and it couldn't mandate laws to the states that states can't afford. The government has no business telling us how to educate our kids, how to run our police depts/fire depts. What is it with unionized government employees?? Throw out unions... the list goes on. And no bill is passed without money in the treasury to pay for it.. but can't raise taxes to pay for it.

    Doesn't the fed-nazis get their money from the states?
  • Mike govout 2010/03/25 14:21:28

    They get their money by stealing it from the individual people within the states and then they will bludgeon the states over the head with sacks of money designed to intimidate the states.

    I want every one of them investigated. Where they go what they do,and what they get. The payoffs have got to brought out into the sunshine. Obama needs to be investigated also for the graft that was put up for auction by these bottom feeders.
    I pray that the states will be able to stop this joke in it's tracks.

    Do you like the idea of socialism? Oh, well, here is what happened to me:

    Few years ago, we went on a business trip to Medvezhyegorsk, Karelia (Russian names are difficult to spell even for Russian immigrants, but it is the correct spelling, look it up on the map). It is a nice little town in the middle of nowhere surrounded by lakes and mountains. The town name means Bear Mountain Town, and there is Bear Mountain of course.

    The town is behind the Polar Circle, so it gets 10-20 feet of snow, and the temperature could easily be negative 40 degrees and more. Ever been to Alaska in the winter?

    We were given a room in a hotel right accross the statue of Vladimir Lenin. Locals probably didn't get the news that the Soviet Union ceased to exist, so they kept the statues and red flags everywhere.

    Oh, well, each hotel floor had a single public toilet shared by everybody, and no bathrooms. Unfortunately, the sewer system got frozen and overflowed, so there was a big pile of shit where the toilet seats used to be. People had to stand on a chair and to shit on top of that pile.

    Fortunately, the temperature INSIDE the toilet was below freezing, so that pile of shit was frozen and didn't smell too much.

    Every time somebody talks about socialism...

    Every time somebody talks about socialism, this vivid image of pile of shit comes to my memory.

    Enjoy. I feel much better after sharing it with you.

    There will be compromise as usual. The main thing is that this bill would break the back of most small business owners 250k a yr is average or more for a small business. Democrats know this and dont care. Also states have to co-pay and itll bankrupt em. Guess the federal government wants everyone to be bankrupt just like them. business democrats care co-pay bankrupt em guess federal government bankrupt

    A democracy is nothing more than mob rule, where fifty-one percent of the people may take away the rights of the other forty-nine. --- Thomas Jefferson

    All, too, will bear in mind this SACRED PRINCIPLE, that though the WILL of the MAJORITY is in all cases to PREVAIL, that will to be RIGHTFUL must be REASONABLE; that the MINORITY possess their equal RIGHTS, which equal law must PROTECT, and to violate would be OPPRESSION. --- Thomas Jefferson

    Just because you got 52% of the vote in THIS ELECTION doesn't mean that you have the mandate to completely transform America. For any significant change (like changing the Constitution), you need 2/3rd of the votes. Not 50% and 1, but 2/3rd.

    Those rules were put there for exactly that reason, to prevent the tyranny of the majority.

    The one pervading evil of democracy is the tyranny of the majority, or rather of that party --- Lord Acton

    I will throw in couple more good quotes:

    The ideally non-violent state will be an ordered anarchy. That State is the best governed which is governed the least. --- Mohandas Ghandi

    The two enemies of the people are criminals and government, so let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so the second will not become the legalized version of the first. --- Thomas Jefferson
