Why Rep. Wamp and Mayor Haslam can NOT be Governor of TN! [or who I’m (NOT) supporting for TN Governor] by Matt Collins July 13, 2009

July 14, 2009

The following is contributed by Matt Collins. His credentials follow the article below.

Definitely a must read for folks who strive for accountability in government!

You’re kidding me. Our elected officials are supposed to actually keep their oath to uphold the Constitution? The supreme law of the land?

Yup, that’s it. It’s so simple; but these folks are hard to find due to “Special Interest Influence” and arm-twisting from the “Dark Side”.

Why Rep. Wamp and Mayor Haslam can NOT be

Governor of TN!
[or who I’m (NOT) supporting for TN Governor]

The Davidson County (Nashville) Republican Party held our annual summer picnic Saturday (7/11); all of the Republican gubernatorial candidates were present. After speaking with each candidate individually I am still unsure who I am going to support, however there are definitely two of the candidates who have not only disqualified themselves, but should never hold and elected office again!

I‘ll start with Bill Haslam the Mayor of Knoxville.

In case you are unaware Mayor Haslam joined NYC Mayor Bloomberg’s anti-gun coalition in an effort to curb crime in Knoxville. However Mayor Haslam then says that upon joining the coalition the leadership took a different direction and he withdrew from the organization. Fair enough and at the DCRP picnic Saturday 2nd Vice Chair Dan Davis and myself asked him about this issue. I wanted to hear the straight scoop directly from him in order to give him a chance to explain his actions before I decided.

Mayor Haslam discussed the story as I explained and he said his intention in the entire situation was simply to “stop the wrong people from having guns”.

I asked him “what kind of people are you referring to that you say shouldn’t have guns?”
And he responded with “felons, criminals, and those without a permit”.

Then I asked “so you believe we need a permit or permission to exercise a right guaranteed by the 2nd Amendment?
Mayor Haslam said “well, for handguns yes

That told me everything I needed to know; I thanked him for his time then I ended the conversation and Dan and I walked away.

What Mayor Haslam does not understand is that ONE DOES NOT NEED A PERMIT TO EXERCISE A RIGHT!!!
We have a right to bear arms that both the US and TN Constitutions guarantee shall not be infringed. Do we need a permit for free speech? Do we need a permit to print a newspaper? Do we need a permit to have a trial by jury? Do we need a permit to birth children? NO, of course not. Why? Because these activities are fundamental individual RIGHTS which cannot be taken away without due process (obviously those convicted of violent crimes should be denied their right to posses firearms). We do not need permission from the government to exercise our rights. If we have to ask permission, then it isn’t a right, it’s a privilege! Rights and privileges are opposites.

The idea that our right to self-defense, our right to bear arms, and that our right to buy/sell/own personal property is first contingent upon a governmental grant of approval is insulting to the very ideals of freedom on which the American Republic was founded. I suggest Mayor Haslam read the US and TN Constitutions because ignorance of both that magnitude and of that authoritarian mindset is dangerous to individual rights and to a free society. He is obviously unfit to govern if he cannot understand the simple and basic difference between rights and privileges.

(Upon edit apparently I am not the only one who takes issue with Mayor Haslam in this regard)

Continuing on to the other gubernatorial candidate, Zach Wamp, the US Congressman from Tennessee’s 3rd District.

Representative Wamp voted for the October ’09 bailout. Representative Wamp calls himself a conservative but one has to ask what is conservative about spending billions of nonexistent dollars, increasing the size/scope of the federal government, and voting against the US Constitution? As an aside it is worth noting that the bailout Representative Wamp voted for also included an audit of carbon emissions which laid the foundation for the coming cap-and-trade / carbon tax; next time you see him be sure to thank him for that.

All US Congressmen upon being seated are administered an oath to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States”. Nowhere in Article 1 Section 8 of the US Constitution (the part that lists Congressional power) is the federal government given the authority to bail out banks, businesses, or mortgages. By voting for and supporting the bailout Congressman Wamp clearly violated his oath to support and defend the US Constitution. On those grounds alone he should be removed from office immediately, and personally I would like to see him, along with most of the rest of the members of Congress, either in jail or forced to perform restitution to those of us who are footing the bill for his unconstitutional action.

When one is entrusted with and given the awesome power to make laws governing the life and property of others, the abuse (or negligence) of that power is not only criminal, but amoral; Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary labels an individual “who betrays another’s trust or who is false to an obligation or duty” as a traitor. Does that denotative description fit Representative Wamp’s blatant violation of his oath?

Several DCRP officers and myself approached him near the conclusion of the Picnic because we wanted to discuss HR1207 (Audit the Federal Reserve Act). Representative Wamp extended his hand to me to shake it and I absolutely refused; I am not interested in being friendly towards those who violate the Constitution. To be fair he said that he was very supportive of HR1207 and that “we ought to do more than just audit the Fed….it’s the cause of a lot of our problems”. While I agree with the Congressman on that specific issue I honestly wanted to vocalize that the other cause of our problems were big-government Republicans acting like big-government Democrats such as himself. However in the spirit of, at minimum, being cordial, I held my tongue. But prior to walking away I did thank him for and told him I appreciated his support on HR1207. I still did not shake his hand.

Regardless of his support for a call of transparency in Auditing the Fed, the fact of the matter is that he broke the trust of the People of the United States by clearly violating his oath to uphold the US Constitution. One or multiple positive actions do not negate the fundamental premise of breaking the highest law in the land, usurping more power to the federal government, and going against one’s sworn oath. Even though Representative Wamp has called his vote for the bailout “a mistake” how can the voters continue to trust him after such a grossly grievous err in judgment especially considering the significance of the consequences resulting from his action?
At this point we have a candidate who has violated his oath, and another who is of the authoritarian mindset that the People need permission from the government before exercising their individual and guaranteed rights. I have 3 more candidates in the TN gubernatorial race to investigate before I decide who to support, hopefully at least 1 of the 3 will not disappoint me because the thought of voting for “none of the above” in the upcoming primary is extremely depressing– I refuse to vote for anyone who is going to increase government, or decrease liberty.

In conclusion it is prudent to ask if we attain smaller, more limited-government, more liberty, more personal freedoms, and less taxes by continuing to vote for elected officials that have broken our trust and ignore the Constitution? Should we reward politicians who take our money, our property, and our freedoms by elevating them to higher office? Should we continue to vote for more of the same? Upon a review of history, I think not. If the Republican Party, and ultimately the country, is going to restrain its government, we must vote for those who adhere to principles, not compromise them.

As the G-20 and many others have been telling us how warm and fuzzy this one world system will be, that we are all in this together, and other things to attempt of disarm and reduce our loyalties to the United States, here is another article that will you an idea of how people and governments around the world want to tell the USA what would be good for them at our expense:

 

http://euobserver.com/19/28065

 

As we continue to lose our autonomy to this one world system, I believe the current administration will be going it into warp drive to join these international governing and regulatory groups. With the end result of our position in the global community will be equal with all other countries, except of course the largest consumer nation.

 

I understand the world is getting smaller due to technology but my questions is why do we in the United States have to give up so much while much of the world is gaining economic and political power? Someone had to pay for this economic transition to this one world system and we are the ones who have and will pay for it. By shipping our industrial base out of the country, with the help of our government through tax incentives to do so, it supplied many countries around the world the economic base to compete for our sovereignty.

 

In other words, as they increase their economic position in the world economy and we are reducing ours, due to our industrial base being shipped off shore and we being the largest debtor nation, many more countries will have the economic where-with-all to influence our global and internal decision making processes. Bottom line, we are selling off our sovereignty for the benefit of the bottom lines of these huge international corporations and financial institutions, with the help of Washington’s unrelenting appetite to spend our way into indentured servitude to stronger economies like China and India.

 

Final thing, for you that live in the 3rd Congressional District of Tennessee and other people in the East Tennessee area who are aware of Zack Wamp’s performance while in office, the Republican Liberty Caucus has asked me to attach a survey they are producing. Go to it and please answer the survey questions, thank you.

Nearing the end of Our Constitutional Republic / Mo Kiah / January 30, 2009

January 30, 2009

Some misconceptions need to be cleared up. First…The United States government is a Constitutional Republic; the founders knew of the detrimental results created by Democracies and Monarchies.

Benjamin Franklin quote… “Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. A Republic is a well armed lamb contesting the vote.”

In other words, the rule of law accompanied by strong compliance with the Constitution most effectively represents “The People” and puts checks and balances on our three levels of federal government to prevent tyranny from showing its power-hungry teeth and treating the self-governed as red-headed-terrorist-stepchildren.

Secondly… Congress receives 99% of bills or acts from their special interests. Congress doesn’t write bills any more (with the exception of Ron Paul and possibly a few others). They are dictated to by greedy, power-hungry fascist corporate lobbyists; Congress takes the draft, fiddles with it, adds pork to it, then they vote on it. End result? We get screwed again.

If anybody believes that a bailout “For The People” is what’s needed to set this country back on its correct path, well, it ain’t gonna happen. Stealing our compensation for services rendered to our employers…then turning around to redistribute the compensation to other people or entities is theft! I don’t like it when our employees steal from “We The People” to bailout some sorry-ass, incompetent entity. It degrades our country, our way of life, threatens freedom and liberty of the people. It also leads to an ever decreasing value of our dollar’s purchasing power at the expense of us, our children and grandchildren.

This bailout scenario is being pursued to usher in a global monetary system that will automatically justify the necessity for a global government. This incremental process has been in the works for over one hundred years. And unfortunately, it looks like everything is right on schedule. Do a little research on “Global Government”, “Central Banks” or “Global Monetary System” and see what results you retrieve.

These bailouts and the accompanying smoke and mirrors (by the way, the mirrors are fading to clear glass) being used to justify the repair of a doomed monetary system are no more than the continuation of an effort to crush the American self-governing process. I don’t take it lightly and “I will not go quietly.”

Democracy = Mob Rule, Constitutional Republic = Rule of law. The main problem is getting the lobbyists out of Washington. There’s 41,000 of them, so we have our work cut out for us.
