    This was written by a good friend of mine and I thought I would share his thoughts with everyone here as I'm sure you will agree! BTW he will be running for a State Representative position in one of the most liberal states in the union Oregon. Enjoy!

    As free born citizens of the Republic of the United States of America, we demand a fully disclosed public explanation as to the right and legitimacy of our federal government, through unconscionable, unsustainable debt, approved but not read by ourselves or our elected representatives to congress due to a false claim of urgency, to burden our futures, our children who have no say, destroy our republic?s wealth, by a future claim that we will then have no choice by your past actions and promises, in order to pay the debt you?ve caused us to incur, to raise our taxes and lower our standard of living, to a degree never seen before, without our consent. This is the absolute definition of taxation without representation. We are not so far removed, as you appear to believe, from our founding to have forgotten the beginning of our nation, from which you derive the same powers that you believe authorize you to execute these heinous acts against the very people you purport to represent and govern. You shirk your responsibility to ?we the people?. All of you, our current government, swore a oath ?to defend the Constitution of the United States?. You have absolutely abandoned your most sacred of responsibilities.

    1st Amendment; Guarantees the freedom of religion, speech, and the press, and protects the right of assembly.

    The attempt to pass the ?Fairness Doctrine?, the bill that would force conservative radio stations to give equal air time to liberal opinions was and is a violation of the 1st Amendment. It would effectively force them to put on equal time to a liberal format that has been proven to not bring in sufficient revenue to support the air time, which would force the stations to move to a full time format such as music, in order to maintain profitability. This would force conservative radio off the air. The same standard is not being applied to print or television, both which are currently dominated by liberal content. This attempt to silence conservative opinion is a unacceptable violation of the U.S. Constitution?s 1st amendment right to free speech, and your oath to uphold it.

    2nd Amendment; Guarantees the right to keep and bear arms.

    Currently in the State of Montana, the Federal Government has over stepped it?s right to regulate interstate commerce as per Article 1, Sec. 8 of the U.S. Constitution and is in direct violation of the 2nd Amendment in its entirety. The production of firearms and ammunition within Montana, sold to Montanans, is protected by the 10th amendment to the Constitution, which says that all rights not explicitly granted by the Constitution to the Federal Government, by default, fall to the individual states, or to the people. By trying to enforce and passing laws that are in direct violation of the 10th Amendment, and in the passage of laws that are in violation of Article 6 of the Constitution demanding that laws made in accordance with the Constitution of the United States are the supreme law of the land (these laws regulating ammunition and firearm registration and/or production are not in accordance as per article 6, hence are in violation of the 10th Amendment ), you are in violation of the U.S. Constitution and your oath to uphold it.

    4th Amendment; Protects the individual against unreasonable search and seizures.

    The attempt by the Federal Government to pass the bill against contracts already agreed upon and paid out to employees of AIG and seize up to 90% of those individuals of the United States, previously earned money or compensation, was a direct violation of the 4th Amendment and a direct violation of Article 1, Sec. 9 of the Constitution that states ?No bill of attainder shall be passed, no individual will be condemned to have his property confiscated without a trial.? We the people of our respective states, as per the 10th Amendment are exerting are Constitutional right to counterbalance article 5, by guarding and preserving state?s rights, and in addition, questioning the legitimacy of the 16th amendment, along with the 17th Amendment as further example of Federal constitutional over reach. You are in violation of the U.S. Constitution and your oath to uphold it.

    8th Amendment; protects against cruel and unusual punishment.

    It is our interpretation, that the debt incurred without representation by the stimulus bill intentionally passed by the federal government without proper debate or a full reading and understanding, was a most heinous violation of the very original intent and formation of our very government ?of the people, for the people, and by the people?. This is cruel and unusual punishment by its very definition. You have by not allowing proper representation, violated the very reason for the original foundation of this country.... taxation without representative. Your very attempt to do this within a interpretive version of the law, shows your attempt of subversion, and by default knowledge of the very illegal, immoral act your trying to commit. You are in violation of the U.S. Constitution, it?s very reason for existence and creation, and your oath to uphold it.

    9th Amendment; Individual rights not enumerated (or named specifically) in the Constitution are secure.

    That is rights not mention are not to be automatically infringed upon because they are not specifically mentioned or ommitted from the Constitution.

    All claims on or restrictions on the right to bear arms as guaranteed in the 2nd Amendment are violations of the 9th Amendment. You are derelict in your duties to uphold the U.S. Constitution, and even a modest or any attempt to do so.

    10th Amendment; all rights not explicitly granted by the Constitution to the Federal Government, by

    default, fall to the individual states, or to the people.

    In the believe that all of these above stated violation?s or wrongful interpretations of the U.S. Constitution violate the very essence of this Amendment, and to a large part stem from the power derived from the 16th amendment, that was ratified in 1913 and gave to the federal government the power to tax our income, our work, our labor and the fruits there of, our property of which our labor is, are all violations of the 10th Amendment, and a formal request by the people of the United States under the power granted to us and our individual states, demand a repeal of the 16th Amendment. We are of the belief that the repeal of this the 16th Amendment would strip the federal government, both Democrats and Republicans, of the power to tax us via income. This in turn would severely severe the federal government form its connection to big business, big banking, big labor, big insurance, special interest groups, and to the money, power, and influence they therefore currently represent. This would return considerable power to the people and the respective states in which they live. It would further almost immediately upon implementation, do away with the I.R.S. and its associated administrative costs. It would further do away with the yearly wasted hours, time, cost, and confusion associated with filling and preparing our tax returns. It would force the federal government to live within our means as stated and repeated as far back as Washington?s fair well address. It would force a sales tax or fee structure for raising taxes. One in which individuals had the choice to buy products so taxed, or not. Grow your own food, on your own land and pay no debt to the federal government, only to your local community or state, in the form of taxes you actually vote for or against either by your direct democratic vote, or through your representative. If your rich and purchase yachts and Mercedes, you pay more accordingly. If you are with less income, you pay a equal fair tax only of what little you use. This is the fairest, most equitable tax system we could ever have. More equal, by it?s very nature as a user tax, than even a flat tax.

    16th Amendment; Granted Congress the authority to tax income directly.

    This amendment passed in 1913 by President Woodrow Wilson and his Progressive social democratic government, in the name of the better good, or as a defining tenet of ?socialism?, allowed Congress for the first time in our entire history, to tax our income. This amendment was needed to legally justify a complete lack of respect for the original intent of the Constitution and our ?Bill of Rights?. They were established to protect us from Government over reach. They were to protect our individual liberty, our property, the fruits of our labor. This amendment was intended to up root and over turn those very fundamental principles and take from us our income, our property in the form of our money, at whatever rate, and progressive structure that they forever forward would see fit. This allowed them to set up a progressive tax system that now taxes some of us unequally, and some of not at all, and pits one American against another in a class struggle that we all loose, by giving up our liberties, our believe in equal treatment under the law, and our individual rights as set forth and intended by the founders of our great country. This amendment should be immediately repealed by a demand for a constitutional convention opened as proscribed by the U.S. Constitution either by a 2/3s vote of both houses of Congress, or by a call by 2/3s of the state legislatures of the individual 50 states of The U.S.A.

    17th Amendment; This amendment calls for a direct election of U.S. Senators by the people of the state

    from which they hail.

    Prior to this amendment, the state?s legislatures voted on who to send to Washington D.C. to represent them, not the people directly. This was in keeping with the Republican frame work that we all swear an allegiance to in the pledge of the allegiance. ?I pledge my Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands....?. This amendment that changed our republican form of government, was also added in 1913 By President Wilson and his progressive social democratic congress, in the name of being more ?democratic?. The founding father?s expressed clearly that we did not want a true democracy, it would amount to mob rule, 50% plus one and an ever changing set of rules we can?t count or rely on. It was absolutely agreed by all that a republic would provide the best protection of our individual rights. A democracy would be corrupted by unscrupulous politicians that would eventually subvert of country?s very purpose, to be ?of the people, by the people, and for the people?. This is exactly what both the 16th and the 17th amendments have attempted to side step. The 17th amendment should be repealed. This amendment should be immediately repealed by a demand for a constitutional convention opened as proscribed by the U.S. Constitution either by a 2/3s vote of both houses of Congress, or by a call by 2/3s of the state legislatures of the individual 50 states of The U.S.A.

    If any one of these violations of our very founding document stood alone, I would find offense enough, but as this list is so long as to practically be an abomination, I turn to the ?Declaration of Independence?;

    When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.

    We the people of the United States of America, demand of our Federal Government, and our state and local government, by all of our very oaths and allegiance to the Constitution and each other, that immediate steps are taken to answer, address, rectify,and alleviate these violations, and punish or remove those persons who stand in the way of the rightful future of this great country, as granted by those who came before and in respect of those to follow. Our constitution and our protected individual rights granted by that very document will be made whole again, and our birth right shall be restored, or may hell?s fury be called down on all those who stand in our way.
