August 10 — Smith and the 14th Amendment
Section 1 of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution states, in part, "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside."
As quoted in the Austin American-Statesman, ---- Mr. Smith
We don't know what Mr. Smith has up his sleeve, but if his track record is any indicator, we won't find out what he was thinking until the day after it's been passed by the House.
Kind of the same way that Nancy Pelosi likes her bills passed. "We have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it"
Her actual quote is six paragraphs from the bottom.
The bottom line is — do we NEED a Congressman who will so freely play "lawyerball" with the Consitiution, and whose efforts to evade transparency equal or even exceed those of Speaker Pelosi?
In November, you have a choice.
A Return To Liberty
Restoring our Constitutional Rights
A link to the Patriot Act is now available. Read what Congress didn't.
Humane, Effective Borders
If we have no borders, we have no country.
Most Americans are blaming the wrong people for our immigration problems.
Cut and Simplify
Taxes got you down? One of the cornerstones of the Libertarian Party has always been that taxes are too high — and these high taxes support oppressive levels of government. Are you willing to exchange lower taxes across the board for less government involvement in your life?
There's a catch, though. Certain government services like Homeland Security's round-the-clock monitoring of your email and telephones might have to be discontinued. And you'd pay more for the government services you use. But you'd stop paying for services you don't use, things like the White House's "Director of Lessons Learned."
Want to know more? Click on Taxes for some "baby steps" I support, and click on Fair Tax proposal (H.R. 25) for a revolutionary idea that seems terribly expensive at first, but with a deeper inspection, makes a whole lot of sense for America and for American taxpayers. And saves money for citizens and for the government both!
Let's start with the laws we already have
America is a nation of laws, right?
Follow the US Constitution
The Federal government has grown far beyond its current Constitutional authorization. Citizens, cities, counties and state governments have had their rights overrun.
