Tennessee: It's Time to Stand Against Tyranny

The Federal Government is out of control.  We the People are being governed by tyrants.  We the People are the guarantors of our Liberty.   The scariest thing to those who oppose Liberty is an informed, educated and engaged citizenry.  That's us.  Maybe the best thing to happen to us in the present time is the passage of ObamaCare.  It is the biggest grab of power by the Federal government over us and it has awakened a citizenry that has been lulled into complacency.  No longer do we have the option of trusting politicians to do the right thing.  No longer do we have the option of hiding our heads in the sand.  No longer do we have the option of "live and let live".  It is time to do what we say we believe in.  It's time to take responsibility.  It's time to get involved.  The very life of our Republic depends on it.

In KrissAnne Hall's article "Justice Roberts Gives Some Good Advice" she states

Our states, especially those who thought it important enough to file a lawsuit, must stand now and say, this law is unconstitutional, this ruling is unconstitutional and we are not bound by it! Basically, our states must have the courage to say, “WE WILL NOT COMPLY”. It is our states that must“redress the injury done to the Constitution.” Once again, Justice Roberts in the very ruling that dealt such a devastating blow to the Republic, points the way.
“In the typical case we look to the States to defend their prerogatives by adopting “the simple expedient of not yielding” to federal blandishments when they do not want to embrace the federal policies as their own. Massachusetts v. Mellon, 262 U. S. 447, 482 (1923). The States are separate and independent sovereigns. Sometimes they have to act like it.” (emphasis added) -Justice Roberts.
Not only did he give the directive, but he gave the pathway as well.
“Instead, we determine, first, that §1396c is unconstitutional when applied to withdraw existing Medicaid funds from States that decline to comply with the expansion… As a practical matter, that means States may now choose to reject the expansion; that is the whole point.”-Justice Roberts

 According to James Madison, the State Legislatures will jealously and closely watch the operations of this Government, and be able to resist with more effect every assumption of power, than any other power on earth can do; and the greatest opponents to a Federal Government admit the State Legislatures to be sure guardians of the people's liberty.”

The job of our state legislators is to protect their citizens from the overreaching Unconstitutional power grabs by the Federal government. 

Our state legislators must say NO to setting up the State Health Insurance Exchanges for HellCare/tax. 


It is our duty as citizens to remind them of this duty and hold them accountable.  

It's time for an E-Rally to our governor and our state legislators.

It's time to fax, email, tweet and call Governor Haslam and our elected officials in Nashville.  We cannot blindly trust them to do the right thing just because they may have an R by their name.  

Be sure and put No State Exchanges in the Subject line in your faxes and emails and #NoStateXchng when tweeting.

 "If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed; if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival. There may even be a worse case: you may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." ~ Winston Churchill
