Somebody Hasn't Actually Contemplated Their Oath

216 "somebody"s, as it turns out... Have they even bothered to read what they've sworn to uphold?

Herewith, the rally and roll call vote on HCR6, "affirming States' rights based on Jeffersonian principles." As you watch the floor debate in the 2nd half, remember that there was no public testimony against HCR6. None.

There were no arguments expressed against it in the State-Federal Relations Committee's shockingly perfunctory Executive Session. Zero.

The extremely limited coverage the mainstream media has deigned to provide (not to mention statements by Committee members in session) has suggested that legislators have been hearing a lot on this issue, yet none of them seems able to say any of it was remotely negative. There were hundreds of well-chilled voters who turned out on a work day to express their (to employ laughable understatement) strong approval for the resolution.

These "representatives" certainly aren't listening to their constituents. Who are they listening to? Whom do they serve?

And the arrogant hypocrite Rep. Rollo on the House floor disparages anyone who "thinks they know better" on this bill, but I guarantee you he believed he "knew better" on spending bills and regulation bills voted on in this very same chamber later on this very same day. He has no place whatsoever as my servant, and I want him fired.

Find out who your NH State Representatives are. Then locate them in the "HCR6 Roll Call" to find out how they voted on HCR6: whether they defend your unalienable liberty or they meekly turn it over to the feds (remember, they were voting on the Committee's recommendation to kill the resolution, not on the resolution, itself, so 'nay' is good). Then hold them accountable in November 2010. Here are mine:

Nay - Day, Russell(R)
Nay - Emerton, Larry(R)
Nay - Hikel, John(R)
Nay - Hodges, Kevin(D)
N/V - Holden, Rip(R)
Nay - Hopper, Gary(R)
Nay - Kurk, Neal(R)
Nay - Pratt, Calvin(R)

Good job, men. Thank you for understanding enumerated powers, limited government, states' rights/sovereignty, and intended liberty by local control.

Fellow citizens, this is your Republic the politicians are stealing. Your birthright. Your children's birthright. Do you care? If you're in NH (and why wouldn't you be?), hit the NH Liberty Alliance for help.


And here's just Rep Itse's Rally address.

  1. If these politicians violated their oath of office, would this be considered treason? What's to stop us from holding them accountable right now?
