America: A President Or A King?

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

Great study and deliberation was conducted in designing the office of the president.  What was the designers of our Constitutional Republic chief concern? That the president would become a king.

“The safety of the people in a republic depends on the share or proportion they have in the government; but experience ought to teach you, that when a man is at the head of an elective government invested with great powers, and interested in his re-election, in what circle appointments will be made; by which means an imperfect aristocracy bordering on monarchy may be established.” Anti-Federalist #67

When creating the office of the president our founders had many things to consider.  The first consideration was, would this executive purpose be best fulfilled with a committee, a tribunal, or one person.  In the current climate, it was concluded that the power of the executive should be vested in one person, as an ambassador behalf of the States, to other nations.  But having just thrown off the bonds of kingly rule, how could the designers of our Constitution ensure that this one person, over time, would not accumulate power and become the king they never wanted?  The answer, limited and concurrent authority.

America: We Are Now a Guilty Until Proven Innocent Society

By KrisAnne Hall, JD

Congress, the FBI, IRS, ATF, EPA and other executive agencies of the federal government  violate American property and due process rights every single day.  Now through the draconian use of the “guilty until proven innocent” standard through federal civil asset forfeitures, Gun and accessory bans, and land grabs, members our federal government are not only turning their backs on the Constitution, but are also denying the States’ authority to protect the rights of their own citizens.  For example, a federal ban on gun accessories like “bump stocks” is not simply a violation of the 2nd Amendment, but also violates every protection of due process.  It is in the very least, an unreasonable search and seizure of privately owned property.

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.
