Once again the elitists on Capitol Hill have set their own agenda above that of the constituency. The Saturday vote on the government-run healthcare bill, should be noted as a blatant disregard for the wants and needs of the citizen. That seems to be setting the stage for “taxation, without proper representation”.
The ever-increasing cost of such legislation can do nothing good for the citizenry. The government-run rationing of healthcare for seniors and veterans, an over-reaching tax hike for small business, and forced coverage with a criminal mandate is just the base of my concern. The very aspect of such a government reach is surely to be seen as an act against the Constitution.
The Constitution is a platform for our very existence, as a nation. Without such accord, we would fall to a dismal standing. In all the writings of this glorious document, I am still not able to understand where the document sets the accordance of the right to healthcare. Further, I can see no legitimacy for such a government-mandated policy. I have taken upon myself to read the Constitution, and it's precedence among the founding of our Republic.
Now, let it be known, I am not a constitutional scholar. Yet, it is found to be educational for the citizen to read the Constitution. I encourage all to enlighten themselves with such readings. My children are fully aware of our founding documents, and are encouraged to read and ask questions about such. It can only secure your status as a citizen. As well as a duty and responsibility for all Americans.
As to the constitutionality of government-run healthcare, I cannot find it. I would like to know what the the constituency thinks on this matter. What do you think? Is it constitutional? If so, why and how?
The great State of Indiana has been burdened by the agenda of the elitists on Capitol Hill, as well as their own State Assembly. The blame has to be laid upon those of guilt, and a measure of that blame can be laid squarely with our local government. Our State Assembly has been nowhere to be seen while the sovereignty of our rights, as a state, has been disseminated. Where are they now? Have they bothered to ask if you needed support from the state level? No, of course not. They use the excuse of, “the federal mandate overtakes that of the state”. Well, all I ask for is representation. Will they stand up and defend the Indiana Constitution?
My door has not had a knock. Nor has my phone rang. The support of the people cannot be seen as coming from our own representatives of the state. They should be polling the constituency on what the needs and wants are. Am I right? We pay our taxes, now we want representation. If our very own legislators aren't there to support our needs and wants, then where is it to come from?
As Citizens' Sovereign, we are the legitimate convening authority. Such authority is inherent in both the U. S. Constitution and the Indiana Constitution.
U. S. Constitution:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
Bill of Rights.
WE DECLARE, That all people are created equal; that they are endowed by their CREATOR with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that all power is inherent in the people; and that all free governments are, and of right ought to be, founded on their authority, and instituted for their peace, safety, and well-being. For the advancement of these ends, the people have, at all times, an indefeasible right to alter and reform their government.
All people shall be secured in the natural right to worship ALMIGHTY GOD, according to the dictates of their own consciences.
No law shall, in any case whatever, control the free exercise and enjoyment of religious opinions, or interfere with the rights of conscience.
It can be found especially intriguing that Section One of the Indiana Constitution makes statement of “...an indefeasible right to alter and reform their government.” An amazing statement if taken as to the very definition of indefeasible. “Not capable of being annulled, voided, or undone.” That very meaning could be a designation of American Citizen. Am I wrong? If yes, then how so?
It is time to set the stage for a return to our own sovereignty, and therefore the proof shown to our elected officials. This proof is the right of authority to that of the Citizen Sovereign. The duties and responsibilities of our elected officials are to be enforced. The enforcement of such duties will be shown by a simple vote. That vote will set the mandate.
This vote must be shown at all levels of government. The very aspect of our founding was the need for local representation. Thus, through such legation, the people show strong.
Again, I must thank all readers for taking the time to ponder my thoughts on this matter. Remember that I am just one man, and it is all “One Man's Opinion”.
“REFORM, REFORM, REFORM!”
