We all saw what happened when the former speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, rammed Obamacare through the House in a closed late night session, after urging us to pass the bill in order to find out what was in it. That began a pushback, a reaction, as several states' attorneys general initiated constitutional challenges to the mandated provision. Then, more recently, in response to the passage of the National Defense Authorization Act, some state legislatures have passed bills essentially repudiating the measure and withdrawing state law enforcement and national guards from being able to enforce it.
Now, in response to the efforts to intrude the UN Agenda 21, local communities, and now states like Tennessee and Texas, are passing bills withdrawing from that:
While as this article points out, the resolution is non-binding, let's turn back the clock a bit. Such resolutions were seen before, prior to the War Between the States. What is happening is growing distance, as I indicated yesterday, between the people and the increasingly out-of-touch politicians in Washington and elitists in New York City. The Tea Party and Occupy movements again testify to the growing distance between most Americans and the nattering nuttery of the elites. Local communities and states are passing bills prohibiting courts to allow religious law to be a factor in deciding cases.Sheriffs around the country are increasingly seeing themselves and understanding themselves as the protection of the Constitution and Bill of Rights... in short, some segments of the country are waking up, although let's face it, places like New York, Massachusetts, California, Washington and so on are lost causes.
The states, in short, have become once again the true voice of the opposition, the place where the people have at least some chance of making their voice heard, for it is not being heard in Washington in either political party. But this should give us pause, because the last time similar circumstances prevailed, there was a civil war. This time around, however, the elite has no moral cause by which to drive the division, for they have lost the people, of all races, backgrounds, and social class.
See you on the flip side....
