Tom Mullen – Nullification is Constitutional

Tom Mullen – Nullification is Constitutional

The near-showdown in Texas did not break any new ground in the nullification debate. The Texas House of Representatives passed a law that made the touching of genitals or breasts by TSA personnel illegal and punishable by fines and imprisonment. The federal government responded by citing the Supremacy Clause of the U.S. Constitution, together with a threat to cancel all air travel to and from Texas if the law were passed by the Senate and signed by the governor. The Texas Senate backed down. The crisis was averted

Herman Cain Joins the Ranks of the Constitutionally Confused

It is a timeless maxim repeated to every author: Write about what you know. For presidential candidates, the maxim should be adjusted to read: Talk about what you know. On May 21, during the official announcement of his candidacy for President of the United States, Herman Cain confused the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

Legislator says the state needs its own currency

Legislator says the state needs its own currency

Cautioning that the federal dollars in your wallet could soon be little more than green paper backed by broken promises, state Rep. Glen Bradley wants North Carolina to issue its own legal tender backed by silver and gold.

The Republican from Youngsville has introduced a bill that would establish a legislative commission to study his plan for a state currency. He is also drafting a second bill that would require state government to accept gold and silver coins as payment for taxes and fees.

The Last Nail – Floor Speech May 25 2011

The Last Nail – Floor Speech May 25 2011

The Last Nail The last nail is being driven into the coffin of the American Republic. Yet, Congress remains in total denial as our liberties are rapidly fading before our eyes. The process is propelled by unwarranted fear and ignorance as to the true meaning of liberty. It is driven by economic myths, fallacies and irrational good intentions. The rule of law is constantly rejected and authoritarian answers are offered as panaceas for all our problems. Runaway welfarism is used to benefit the rich at the expense of the middle class.

Our Presidents can now, on their own: …

The GOP 2012 Hopefuls Who Supported a Health Care Mandate

Mitt Romney can raise $10.5 million in one day. He has a big campaign organization and a national network of supporters and he’s tall and nice-looking former governor with a full head of hair. He should be a strong candidate to challenge President Obama in 2012, except for one thing: He signed Romneycare into law, a health care overhaul that features a mandate that individuals buy health insurance, a feature of Obama’s health care plan that Republicans despise. Explaining his embrace of the individual mandate is Romney’s biggest challenge in the primaries. But Romney’s not the only one with an individual mandate skeleton in his closet. Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, and, Politico’s Ben Smith unearthed Friday, Tim Pawlenty all have varying levels of support for the measure in their pasts. …
