Breaking => New Hampshire Nullifies Federal Government’s Indefinite Detention Rule NDAA As Unconstitutional..
CONCORD, N.H., January 23, 2014 – Today, a bipartisan state house committee in New Hampshire voted unanimously in support of a bill which deems federal indefinite detention powers unconstitutional and bans “any activity that aids” the federal government in carrying out such powers.
Introduced by Rep. Tim O’Flaherty (D- Hillsborough), the bill quickly garnered co-sponsorship from two republicans and two democrats. Tenth Amendment Center communications director Mike Maharrey praised the bipartisan action. “Some things are so bad that people know it’s time to drop party affiliations and work together. Indefinite detention is really nothing more than kidnapping sanction by law, and the resistance to it from both parties in the state is refreshing news,” he said.
Our Colonial ancestors petitioned and pleaded with King George III to get his boot off their necks. He ignored their pleas, and in 1776, they rightfully declared unilateral independence and went to war. Today its the same story except Congress is the one usurping the rights of the people and the states, making King Georges actions look mild in comparison. Our constitutional ignorance — perhaps contempt, coupled with the fact that weve become a nation of wimps, sissies and supplicants — has made us easy prey for Washingtons tyrannical forces. But that might be changing a bit. There are rumblings of a long overdue re-emergence of Americans characteristic spirit of rebellion.
The formerly solid wall of Republican opposition to any tax increase has now been breached by Tom Coburn and it is up to The American Citizen to repair it and plug it up!
Three normally conservative Senators — Tom Coburn (Oklahoma), Mike Crapo (Idaho) and Judd Gregg (New Hampshire) — have voted in favor of the Bowles-Simpson Deficit Reduction Commission’s recommendations for massive tax hikes. Coburn, Crapo, and Gregg are laboring under the grand illusion that tax increases can reduce the deficit.
