The Debate on the 10th Amendment Heats Up in Michigan!

Michigan now has a Bill in both the State Senate and the legislature to affirm Michigan's sovereignty under the 10th Amendment. 
The times we are living in are the most volatile we as a Nation have ever faced politically.  We are at the crossroads of no return folks.  We must demand our Constitution BACK!

Great news!  Sen. Bruce Patterson (R) has introduced Senate Concurrent Resolution 004 which has been referred to the Senate Judiciary Committee. 

As you may recall, HCR 4, introduced by Representative Paul Opsommer, would affirm Michigan's sovereignty under the 10th Amendment and the Michigan legislature's commitment to defending it.  Now, a companion piece is active in the Michigan Senate. 

You can listen to Rep. Opsommer discussing the bill on WTCM Radio in Traverse City, Michigan at this link:

Now it's our turn!

Sen. Patterson and Rep. Opsommer cannot do this without our help.
Here is what we need to do:

1.  Call your Senator and your Representative and let them know that you support these resolutions!  Find Who they are and their contact information you can use this link: aspx

Pursue them until you get a response.  You can call their office during business hours, and if you let them know that you are a precinct delegate (or if not a GOP precinct delegate, a "precinct activist," they will know you stand for more than one vote and take you seriously. 

If your Senator is Kuipers, Cropsey, Sanborn, Patterson, Stamas, Whitmer, Clarke, or Basham, he/she is on the Judiciary Committee--do all possible to mobilize people in your district to put pressure on him or her!

Same for these Representatives: Meadows, Lipton, Lisa Brown, Constan, Corriveau, Coulouris, Kandrevas, Bettie Cook Scott, Warren, Schuitmaker, Amash, Haveman, Rick Jones, Kowall, or Rocca.

2.  Write letters to the editors of all the Michigan media outlets.  You can find contact info here index.php/Michigan_media or here world/us/22.

3.  Contact the county or district coordinator in your area and volunteer to help with a phone bank so we can get the word out!  If you are not sure who to contact, go to: usa/MI If you live in an area that does no have a county or district coordinator, please contact me ASAP and I will help you.
I also would like to remind everyone to also consider signing up for the St. Louis Regional Conference.  It is approximately as far from Michigan as Minneapolis, but this conference includes two days of intensive political training that will prove invaluable in all your future efforts.  St. Louis will pick up where Minneapolis left off--and, attendees will be given footage of subsequent training sessions occurring in the upcoming year.

Governor Hucckabee spoke to Michael Steele today 3/12/209

Update On Michael Steele

I have spoken this afternoon to Chairman Michael Steele and have received clarification from him as to his comments regarding the sanctity of life issue.  I appreciate his candor and most of all his willingness to personally discuss this with me.

Michael affirms his pro-life commitment, including support for the party platform of a Constitutional amendment to protect life and his conviction that life begins at conception.   The point he sought to make was that words like "choice" and "individual decisions" have been co-opted by the left, when in fact his mother made a choice as an individual—the CHOICE to give birth to him as an unmarried college student.  It would have been easy for her to have made a choice to end his life, but she chose life.

Obviously, this is an issue which is very important to me and to many other conservatives and it was important for me to get this clarified.  I'm grateful that Chairman Steele was willing to set the record straight without hesitation.

RNCC- Fiscal Responsibility Starts Now *** REALLY?***

You think it is time to be serious and save this Nation or are you smoke and mirrors for the one world order crowd?  Washington does not adhere to the Constitution in hardly any manner what so ever.  If our GOP, who are called by conservative Founding Father values, would look up and do what is right, We would follow Passionately!!!
Note to Americans:
This would seem to be a BIG breakthrough.  It would be well to post this at your blogs, websites, groups - with a follow-up link to Aaron Russo's film (can use ).
What's more, contact your local PBS station.  Send them this video, and request that they show "America: From Freedom To Fascism"
Ten percent of the tax revenue in the Federal treasury is derived from the individual income tax.  That is probably less then half of the heals on desks that could go find a constitutionally legal  job.  Simply do away with the IRS on individuals.  That would certainly stimulate our nations fiscal crisis and it would protect us from the dollar collapsing so that we will be manipulated into the One World Currency, the EURO!
If you truly want to hold the Democrats accountable, do it and know that there are four fingers pointing back at you.  You do not need money to stand for truth, not today.
May GOD Help Us,
R. George Dunn
America, welcome to the new media.  Let Truth Flourish!  Let us embrace individual State Sovereignties once more!  Let us sit down wisely and create a ten year plan to move the Federal programs back to Constitutional compliance.  Put social programs in the Board of Governors as voluntary programs to each State.

If you want a progressive tax, try the Fair Tax Plan, at a constitutional spending level, say 4% for defense.

Subject: Fiscal Responsibility Starts Now

    Dear NRCC supporter,

As the Ranking Republican on the Budget Committee, I am outraged by the wild and irresponsible spending under the current Democratic Congress.

On top of the $787 billion "stimulus package" passed by the Democrats this year, Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced just yesterday that we need to "keep the door open" to another stimulus package.

Another "stimulus package"?!

Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats won't stop spending until our country is completely bankrupt! She and her far-left allies continue to believe that big government and expanded spending can solve anything.

But, you and I know that big government and failed policies are not the answer. And today, I'm asking you to join me in holding Nancy Pelosi and her spend-thrift Democratic allies accountable.

The NRCC needs your immediate support today. Will you follow this link to make an immediate donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to help us put a stop to the Democrats' wasteful spending?

Every dollar you give is put to work electing fiscally responsible candidates to the House of Representatives. The only way to stop the Democrats' unprecedented spending spree of your tax dollars is to elect a fiscally responsible Congressional majority in 2010 - and this is what the NRCC has set out to do.

Every Republican vote for fiscal responsibility counts in putting a stop to the pork-filled, inflated spending bills from the Democratic far-left. And your urgent contribution of $25 or more is needed to get our message of responsible spending to the American people.

With your support, we will be able to put a stop to the wasteful spending of your tax dollars and get our economy back on track.

Thank you for your generosity and steadfast support.


Paul Ryan
Ranking Republican, Budget Committee

P.S. I'm asking you to stand with me today by calling for fiscal responsibility. The NRCC is dedicated to electing a fiscally responsible majority in 2010 to put a stop to the Democrats' spending spree. And you can help us reach our goal by making an immediate donation of $25, $50, $100, $250 or more to the NRCC. Your generous financial support will make all the difference in our ability to put a stop to the reckless spending from the Democrats. Thank you. -Paul

Michigan: Blueprint to crisis.A lesson???

Michigan: Blueprint to crisis…A lesson???

March 12th, 2009 by Saul Anuzis

Daniel Howe has written a powerful piece in the Detroit News that should serve as a lesson for America…I hope President Obama reads it.

"Back when Michigan's economy was merely troubled — before $4-a-gallon gas
and frozen credit markets pushed the auto industry into free-fall — Gov.
Jennifer Granholm warned the Big Mitten's deepening economic problems could
presage what lay ahead for the nation.

I and other skeptics chortled, figuring the collective denial of economic
reality, anti-business rhetoric in Lansing, rote acceptance of labor's
influence in policy-making, and higher tax loads on individuals and
companies here couldn't possibly go national. The combination was too toxic,
too self-defeating, too steeped in a last-century worldview that had been
discredited by events and chronic failure.

But I was wrong.

Less than two months into a new administration in Washington, much of the
tone and substance coming from the Obama White House and its allies in a
Democratic-controlled Congress sound eerily familiar to weary Michigan ears.
At least they should.

There's money for education, health care and alternative technology. There's
the prospect of higher tax loads for some individuals and higher energy
prices for all. There's a push to increase the influence of the labor lobby
by making organizing easier. There are rhetorical shots at business, some
undeserved. There's even a Harvard Law-educated CEO who gives a great

Been there, done that."

It sounds so familiar that it's truly scary.  American can and SHOULD see Michigan as a model.  As I said rhetorically during the campaign, if you like what Jennifer Granholm has done to Michigan, you're going to love what Barack Obama is going to do to America.  More truth than not?!?

Come to Michigan, America, to see where some of this could lead if a) it's
not accompanied by plain recognition that business is the most effective
creator of jobs and b) the boss slow-walks remedies to serious problems, as
Obama is doing on the banking crisis.

We have a state capital whose strongest leaders aren't the governor, the
speaker of the House or the Senate majority leader. They're the heads of the
United Auto Workers and the Michigan Education Association, the two biggest
obstacles to the structural reform of state and local government despite
steadily declining tax revenues, population and per capita incomes.

Most of all, we have a penchant for addressing the symptoms of problems
because attacking the root causes is too hard. It doesn't work.

This is a very powerful article that every policy should read and take into consideration as America slips down the same road Michigan has been on!

More oil then ever in the Rockies


3 to 4.3 Billion Barrels of Technically Recoverable Oil Assessed in North Dakota and Montana's Bakken Formation—25 Times More Than 1995 Estimate—

Read FAQs about the Bakken Formation.

Reston, VA - North Dakota and Montana have an estimated 3.0 to 4.3 billion barrels of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil in an area known as the Bakken Formation.

A U.S. Geological Survey assessment, released April 10, shows a 25-fold increase in the amount of oil that can be recovered compared to the agency's 1995 estimate of 151 million barrels of oil.


 Subject: Fw: Fw: This should make you mad



The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big.  It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota ; western South Dakota ; and extreme eastern Montana ...... check THIS out:


The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels.. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.


'When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.' says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst.


'This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years.' reports, The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.  It's a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.'  And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada ..  For years, U. S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end.  Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago.  However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves.... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels.  And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!


That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 41 years straight.


2. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from TWO YEARS AGO!


U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World!

Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006 



Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels.  On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?


They reported this stunning news:  We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:


- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia

- 18-times as much oil as Iraq

- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait

- 22-times as much oil as Iran

- 500-times as much oil as Yemen

- and it's all right here in the Western United States .


HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this?  Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy....WHY?


James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped.  That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.


Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find?  Think again!  It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists? 

Got your attention/ire up yet?  Hope so!  Now, while you're thinking about it .... and hopefully P.O'd, do this:


3. Pass this along.   If you don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the next time you want to complain about gas prices .. because by doing NOTHING, you've forfeited your right to complain.


Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book.

By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!

5 Reasons Why God Uses Problems

5 Reasons Why God Uses Problems

The problems you face will either defeat or develop
you - depending on how you respond to them.
Unfortunately, most people fail to see how God
wants to use problems for good in their lives.
They react foolishly and resent their problems
rather than pausing to consider what benefit they
might bring.

Here are five ways God wants to use the problems
in your life:

1. God uses problems to DIRECT you.
Sometimes God must light a fire under you to get
you moving. Problems often point us in a new
direction and motivate us to change. Is God trying to
get your attention? "Sometimes it takes a painful situation
to make us change our ways."
Proverbs 20:30

2. God uses problems to INSPECT you.
People are like tea bags...if you want to know
what's inside them, just drop them into hot water! Has
God tested your faith with a problem What do problems
reveal about you? "When you have many kinds of troubles,
you should be full of joy, because you know that these troubles
test your faith, and this will give you patience."
James 1:2-3

3. God uses problems to CORRECT you.
Some lessons we learn only through pain and failure. It's
likely that as a child your parents told you not to touch a
hot stove. But you probably learned by being burned.
Sometimes we only learn the value of something... health,
money, and relationship. .. by losing it. "It was the best thing
that could have happened to me, for it taught me to pay attention
to your laws."
Psalm 119:71-72

4. God uses problems to PROTECT you.
A problem can be a blessing in disguise if it prevents you from
being harmed by something more serious. Last year a friend
was fired for refusing to do something unethical that his boss
had asked him to do. His unemployment was a problem - but
it saved him from being convicted and sent to prison a year
later when management's actions were eventually discovered.
"You intended to harm me, but God intended it
for good...
Genesis 50:20

5. God uses problems to PERFECT you.
Problems, when responded to correctly, are character builders.
God is far more interested in your character than your comfort.
Your relationship to God and your character are the only two
things you're going to take with you into eternity. "We can rejoice
when we run into problems... they help us learn to be patient. And
patience develops strength of character in us and helps us trust God more each time we use it until finally our hope and faith are strong and steady."
Romans 5:3-4

Here's the point:
God is at work in your life - even when you do not recognize it or
understand it. But it's much easier and profitable when you cooperate with Him. "Success can be measured not only in achievements, but in lessons learned, lives touched and moments shared along the way"

LIFE IS AN ECHO. What you send out, you get back.
What you give, you receive.
