Some Americans are awakening to the warning of our Founding Fathers. George Washington stated, "Government is not reason; it is not eloquent; it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master."
We are clearly in the "fearful master" stage in our history. Thomas Jefferson declared, "When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty." Who is fearing who in these days?
Finally, it appears some states are finding the backbone to resist the insanity, idolatry, foolishness, and governmental oppression proceeding from Washington DC.
Case in point is the State of New Hampshire. Interestingly enough, their state motto is "Live Free or Die." Apparently, there are some in the state that still believe in those words.
Washington State also crafted a similar resolution and sent it to the entire Federal government leadership. The headline reads STATE OF WASHINGTON DECLARING SOVEREIGNTY !!! To find out more, follow this link,
These states are throwing down the gauntlet. If the federal government does not accept this check and balance and come back within their lawful jurisdiction, civil war may result. This is something we have warned about for years. It is the judgment of God visiting the iniquity of our land for murdering His babies and parading our sin like Sodom.
However, this is what the lower magistrate doctrine looks like in the real world--the states resisting the tyranny of the federal government to protect life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. May other states follow suit and cleanse America from the "inmates that are running the asylum" in Washington DC.
The following came from an email message received today.
"This act by New Hampshire is a clear warning to the federal government that they could face being stripped of their power by the States (presumably through civil war)!
The remarkable document outlines with perfect clarity, some basics long forgotten. For instance, it reminds Congress:
"That the Constitution of the United States, having delegated to Congress a power to punish treason, counterfeiting the securities and current coin of the United States, piracies, and felonies committed on the high seas, and offences against the law of nations, slavery, and no other crimes whatsoever;. . . . . therefore all acts of Congress which assume to create, define, or punish crimes, other than those so enumerated in the Constitution are altogether void, and of no force;"
Federal gun crime laws? Void. Federal drug crime laws? Void. The gazzillion other federal criminal laws that deal with anything other than the specific enumerated crimes? ALL VOID.
One would think that if any lawyer anywhere in the entire country was worth his salt, all federal criminal trials would have ended years ago. This seems to prove that most lawyers are dullards.
New Hampshire deals a complete death blow to the pending federal hate crimes legislation by pointing out "That, therefore, all acts of Congress of the United States which do abridge the freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of the press, are not law, but are altogether void, and of no force; . . . . ."
Later in the Resolution, New Hampshire makes clear what the feds are now risking if they proceed further: The removal of all powers from the federal government by the States!
Quoting directly from the Resolution: "That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America. Acts which would cause such a nullification include, but are not limited to:
I. Establishing martial law or a state of emergency within one of the States comprising the United States of America without the consent of the legislature of that State.
II. Requiring involuntary servitude, or governmental service other than a draft during a declared war, or pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.
III. Requiring involuntary servitude or governmental service of persons under the age of 18 other than pursuant to, or as an alternative to, incarceration after due process of law.
IV. Surrendering any power delegated or not delegated to any corporation or foreign government.
V. Any act regarding religion; further limitations on freedom of political speech; or further limitations on freedom of the press.
VI. Further infringements on the right to keep and bear arms including prohibitions of type or quantity of arms or ammunition; and that should any such act of Congress become law or Executive Order or Judicial Order be put into force, all powers previously delegated to the United States of America by the Constitution for the United States shall revert to the several States individually."
