Dick Hoese has written a petition he would like to have everyone in our group study, comment, correct or add on to at our next meeting, Aug 17th. Don Durand has also sent it around in an email. Here is the Petition:
ENFORCEMENT OF THE CONSTITUTION IS A CO-EQUAL RIGHT AND RESPONSIBILITY OF THE SUPREME COURT, THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH AND THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH. THEREFORE:
The undersigned members of the Rockport Conservatives are committed to:
No more stealing of taxpayer money to fund or enable unconstitutional projects. Anyone in doubt after reading the constitution can read the Federalist Papers and other writings of the period. The Supreme Court is only the temporary, not final, determinant, of constitutionality.
No more stealing of taxpayer money to fund or enable social engineering, no matter how reasonable it appears. Work to retire all such programs.
No more stealing of taxpayer money to fund or enable projects that are in conflict with state and local rights. Work to retire all such programs.
No more bribery of states and local interests with the threat of withholding or providing federal (taxpayer) funds.
No more passing of legislation, amendments, appointments and regulations without reading and understanding them. If not, vote no. The same applies to producing extensive, contradictory, and confusing language.
All legislation, amendments, appointments and regulations must state their constitutional basis, by specific reference to the article(s).
No more talk of a floating or changing constitution. If you want to do something unconstitutional change it by a lawful process. Challenge all parties who deny us enforcement of the constitution.
If you are consistent with these articles in your practice, see to it that others are also, subject to your powers and explanations.
When someone lies, say so, no matter their position.
If you do not understand the constitution, we will explain it or guide you to sources.
