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.

Key To Understanding the Constitution

By KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

When a woman asked Benjamin Franklin, a founder of our Constitutional Republic, what kind of government the States created, he answered, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”  The key to keeping that Republic exists in the understanding how the Constitution was designed to function.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg's True Legacy- In Her Own Words

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

 

Some ask can we identify a singular point that can cause the destruction of America.  Looking toward U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, may give part of the answer to this question.

Al Hayat TV in Egypt interviewed Justice Ginsburg asking her for the advice she would give Egypt in writing the Constitution for their newly formed government. Her reply to this question gives insight into this her thoughts and understanding of the very Constitution she has given an oath to support and defend.

“I can’t speak as to what the Egyptian experience should be” she said, “because I am operating under a rather old Constitution, the United States in comparison to Egypt is a very new nation, yet we have the oldest Constitution still in force in the world…”

Oligarchy Of Thieves

by KrisAnne Hall, JD

Our government has been infected by Federal Supremacists. They commonly assert that the Supreme Court has the power to ultimately interpret the Constitution through judicial review and therefore sovereignly determine the limits of the power delegated to the federal government. They sometimes assert that federal law itself is superior to the Constitution. In reality, the Supreme Court does not have the authority to limit or expand the power of government. Neither does Congress have the authority to pass a law that is contrary to or beyond the limited and defined boundaries of the Constitution itself. To allow such action means that the Constitution has NO MEANING and the government has NO LIMIT.  Alexander Hamilton proclaimed in Federalist #83:

“…an affirmative grant of special powers would be absurd as well as useless, if a general authority was intended.”

Basically what Hamilton was saying was why did we make a specific list of powers, if the power existed to do whatever they can imagine or get a majority vote upon?

This general, also known in the legal field as “plenary” power being wielded against the states and the people is stolen power. It is power neither authorized nor delegated. Dear friends, this is NOT what a Constitutional Republic looks like…this is a KINGDOM of stolen power, an oligarchy of thieves.
