Divine Right Of Obama

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

In the finest tradition of tyrannical Kings from whom the people wrestled liberty throughout history, President Obama has declared ultimate executive power. On Monday, October 24, 2011 to an audience in Nevada, Obama said;

The Danger To America is Not Socialism, Do You Know This Villain?

By KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

Samuel Adams gave this warning in 1775:

“For no People will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can any be easily subdued, when Knowledge is diffusd and Virtue is preservd. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauchd in their Manners, they will sink under their own Weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders. (sic)”

Some years ago Dennis Prager made this statment, “We have forgotten what it means to be Americans. We have been sorely negligent in teaching our children about our Founding Fathers and the tyranny they overcame. We have failed to teach our children the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and the principle of Natural Law which teaches us that our rights are gifted to us by our Creator and not the government.”

This negligence has been perpetrated for so long that we have entire generations that have no clue what tyranny looks like, or why it is important to fight for the rights we all hold by the very nature of our birth. This ignorance has permitted citizen and leader alike to sit idly by as many fundamental principles of our Republic are attacked.

The Constitutionality of A Presidential State of Emergency

By KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

My inbox is being inundated with the question du jeur: “If President Trump declares a ‘State of Emergency’ to build the wall on the border of Mexico, is that Constitutional?” 

I am certain that is not the right question or perhaps not the right way to ask it, but to ask it and answer it correctly, let’s briefly remind ourselves of America’s Constitutional structure and function.

What We Need To Know About Term Limits

By KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

“We need term limits,” that’s the cry we hear so often today.  Before we act we must ask the question:    Is that the right solution to our life-time politicians or is that simply the easy solution that will eventually backfire?  It is a question we can answer without a crystal ball.  Patrick Henry said,

Disenfranchising The Voters- Destroying the Electoral College 

By KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

The State of Oregon House passed legislation (HB 2927) that would make Oregon award its Electoral College votes only to presidential candidates who win the national popular vote. According to National Popular Vote, this kind of legislation has already been passed by 11 States, (CA, DC, HI, IL, MA, MD, NJ, NY, RI, VT, WA).  Now, we have federal House Representatives proposing legislation to amend the Constitution to eliminate the Electoral College system alltogether.

To be clear, Oregon and these other 11 States are not abolishing the Electoral College but altering it. Article 2 section 2 clauses 2 and 3 and the Twelfth Amendment of the US Constitution require States to establish electors that will choose the president and vice president of the United States.  These States are not eliminating their electoral college, they are eliminating the voice of their citizens and eliminating the legitimacy and relevance of their State’s involvement in the political process.  However, now members of Congress are creating bills to actually dissolve the Electoral Colllege.  Either way, altering or abolishing, these changes will result in the disenfranchising the vote of every State.  This infectious disease of ignorance must be stopped.  The only cure is knowledge so here are some facts that we must not only consider, but educate others.
