    OMG i’m so unbelievably happy!!! I have been writing my reps at the state level for a while now asking them to introduce legislation. Now to pressure the local news stations into covering and informing people on why such a thing is important.

    Could it be that “power to the people” is actually achieved by receding the power to the states and hence to the people, rather than relegating it to powers beyond there reach?

    Could it be that a federal government that oversteps its boundaries with the states respectively, in turn oversteps it’s boundaries on individual freedoms?

    Could it be that the strings attached to the monies received by states in the name of stimulus include the very strings of puppetry that defile the freedom of the states to act, which in turn defiles the freedoms of the people?

    Power To The People!

    It’s about TIME! Thank God! Let’s get behind our legislators and do our part by informing everyone we know, that We The People ARE the government!

    In memory of our Founding Fathers!
