Declaration of State of Rhode Island Sovereignty
To: The Honorable _____________________________
State of _________________
My name is ________________________________ and I am a very concerned constituent of yours.
You should be well aware, our Federal style of government has gotten completely out of control on everything from the "Stimulus Package(s)" to Mr. Obama's signing of the SCHIP Bill on Feb. 4, 2009. We are continuing to slide down this ever slippery slope of democracy to the extent that it has finally landed us in the deep valley of socialism, and I fear, eventually communism. If we do not stop this downward spiral now, we will end up like other great nations in the past, with severe damage, or worse, to America. I for one will resist this frightening possibility and I hope we can count on you to take positive action.
Therefore, I am urging you, as my State Legislator, immediately - with or without help from other Legislators - fashion and present a Bill that Declares the State of Rhode Island Sovereignty from the Federal Government since they continue to ignore and dismantle the Constitution of the United States of America. This would enable an immediate return to the Jeffersonian principles of Government as well as that of the Tenth Amendment that states, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people."
I would like to encourage you as you will be standing with the obvious good company when you submit, or yield, to the will of the people of Rhode Island. Listed are some of the other states that have adopted, or have in committee, such a Bill: New Hampshire, Missouri, Arizona, Washington, Oklahoma, Montana, & Michigan. I would hope that you will not only see the legal, logical, moral, and the ethical reasoning behind such a Bill, but that you would also recall, and hide deep within your heart, the Founders dream and establishment of our great Republic. We must not, now or ever, relinquish our rights or sovereignty.
Here is a link to the Oklahoma Bill - that it may provide you an example for your assistance in drafting our Bill: HJR 1003 and SJR 10.
Thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.
