RUMORS & PETITIONS

In some of the research I put into this effort, I discovered several bits of information that I’m glad I fact-checked. I normally catch scuttlebutt on Facebook or Twitter that are just not true. I’ve fallen victim to these tweets and posts myself, and learned the hard way that research is always the optimal answer prior to the spread of information. I remember one of the hot rumors of the Affordable Care Act was that it did not apply to the President or to Congress. How could anybody know? Nancy Pelosi (representative from California) made the famous comment that if you want to know what’s in the bill, you have to pass it first. That’s exactly what happened. The bill was pushed through, sometimes under cover of secret legislative assemblies, at times when they were certain there could be no oppositional filibustering. Tyranny is defined as that which is legal for government but illegal for the citizenry (Thomas Jefferson). I believe it was at the passing of the Affordable Care Act that the people began to cry out for a 28th amendment, citing the following:

“Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and/or Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and/or Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States.” The aforementioned proposed amendment can be petitioned to Washington at http://www.petition2congress.com/3093/proposed-28th-amendment-to-united-states-constitution/

Perhaps there’s no clause excluding Congress from Obamacare, but there’s still a need for such an amendment. I leave that decision to you, but I get nervous at the thought of the Constitution being touched by unruly representatives. Our government has become so corrupt that it conceals its own shortcomings by silence and a lack of transparency to the people. Anytime a congress wants to amend a constitution, there’s usually an agenda behind it that doesn’t fare favorably for the people. Without a doubt, government has become too large and is destructive to the ends of liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It is therefore the right of the people to abolish such a government and to institute a new government.

“Whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends [life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness] it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it, and to institute new government…” —Thomas Jefferson

“When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.”

— Thomas Jefferson
