What Are the Step 2 Consequences for Any National Healthcare Program

By KrisAnne Hall, JD

Expansion of the federal government has crept along slowly but surely decade after decade. It’s a bit like a “connect the dots” page, where you can’t quite make out the picture until the lines are all drawn. We don’t seem to connect the dots of cause and effect, so we never seem to see the picture until it’s too late. When someone does connect the dots, it sounds like a fairy tale because we are not used to seeing it all at once. Here is a bit of connect the dots to make you think.

This is What Red Flag Laws Will Do To America

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

Red Flag Laws are not only an infringement of an individual’s Right to Keep and Bear Arms, they are an egregious denial of an individual’s Rights to due process and property.  In Texas the RedFlag-style process is being implemented even without a law being passed by the legislature.  Brandon Masin, a conservative first year law student at the University of North Texas, Dallas College of Law is being subjected to RedFlag-style targeting.

The Boston Tea Party- History of Resistance to Government Controls

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

257 Years of Resisting Tyranny

I recently anticipated with joy reading a conservative blogger’s attempt to connect the TEA party movement to its historic roots; a topic I have been meaning to write about for months now. The blogger rightly said that the “the historical precedent for today’s Tea Party Movement wasn’t the Tea Party event in Boston Harbor on December 16, 1773.” I actually uttered an “Amen, brother!” He went on to describe the Continental Association established on October 20, 1774 by the First Continental Congress in response to the Intolerable Acts. That’s when I realized that I have waited long enough to write this article.

6 Little Know Facts About The Bill of Rights

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

Here are 6 little known facts about the Bill of Rights to help you defend Liberty.

1.  The Bill of Rights is not an afterthought of the founders to "correct" the Constitution. It was actually a negotiated condition for ratifying the Constitution.

The delegates of of 5 States were refusing to ratify the Constitution, Virginia was one of those States. Virginia delegates agreed to ratify the Constitution only if there would be a guarantee of debate on provisions to add a Bill of Rights.

On 7 Mar. 1788 the Virginia Baptist General Committee discussed the Constitution:

"Whether the new Federal Constitution which had now lately made its appearance in public, made sufficient provision for the secure enjoyment of religious liberty; on which it was agreed unanimously that, in the opinion of the General Committee, it did not.”

Without Virginia's consent there would be no Union, no Constitution, & no federal government. In order to form the Union, the other 8 States agreed to adding a Bill of Rights.

2.  The Bill of Right was not established to “control” the federal government. It was written to “remind” the people to never let government control their inherent rights. 

In the debate of the ratification of the Bill of Rights, the argument was made proving the intent and purpose of the Bill of Rights.  Not a document to control government, but a document to remind the people.  In The Letter From A Federal Farmer To The Republican #6 this truth is articulated:

“…Fortunate it is for the body of a people, if they can continue attentive to their liberties, long enough to erect for them a temple, and constitutional barriers for their permanent security: when they are well fixed between the powers of the rulers and the rights of the people, they become visible boundaries, constantly seen by all, and any transgression of them is immediately discovered: they serve as centinels for the people at all times, and especially in those unavoidable intervals of inattention.”

The Bill of Rights was permanently placed within the Constitution to be a “constant reminder” to the people to control the limited power of their government.  The Constitution is not a restraint on government, as it is simply a paper with ink.  Our founders said the Constitution was simply a “parchment barrier” without the “true republican jealousy and vigilance [of the people], the strongest guard against the abuses of power.” 

***Therefore, the Bill of Rights did not "establish" or "grant" rigths to the people.  It recognized the rights of the people that already exist!***

3.  “You have the right to remain silent and everything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to talk to an attorney and have him present during questioning.  If you cannot afford one, an attorney will be provided to you for your defense” is not from a Supreme Court case, it is a summary of a few of the principles in the 5th & 6th Amendments in the Bill of Rights.

The 5th Amendment reminds us: No person…shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself.”

The 6th Amendment reminds us: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right…to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defence.”

These are not rights “bestowed” by judges in a courtroom.  These are rights that are essential to the protection of the inherent rights of all citizens.

I actually penned these words in 2013 after a Conservative Majority House voted in an unconstitutional and immoral spending bill.  In reviewing these words, the only thing that has changed after 5 years, is now we have had a Conservative House and Senate passing the same over and over for 5 years.  And NOW socialism and Marxism is seen as a reality in government, back in 2013 we thought it was just a threat.  Samuel Adams was right, Ignorance and Debauched Manners are causing the fall of America.

Here is what Samuel Adams would say to our Americans today, especially those in office.  Afterall, he said the same thing to his people back then.

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”

New American Version~ My Country 'Tis of Thee

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

My country 'tis of thee,

Sweet land of Prosperity,

Of thee I sing.

Land where NSA does spy!

Land where our freedom died!

From Congressmen who lied,

Let Spending Ring.

 

My native country thee,

Land of the shopping spree,

Thy revenue I love.

I love thy welfare fills,

Their dark green fiat bills;

My heart with rapture fills

For the fedral gov.

 

Let free stuff swell the breeze,

And fall from all the trees

Sweet Congress song.

Let socialists awake;

Let all that breathe partake;

Let Marxists their silence break,

Servitude prolong.

 

Our father's God to, Thee,

Author of Liberty,

To Thee we sing.

When will our land be bright

With freedom's holy light;

Purged from this soulless blight,

Great God, our King!
