The Constitution in Crisis!


Richard H. Frank

This week the legislative process in Congress will reach an historical low point as the Democrat-controlled House attempts to steam roller the Constitution and ram their ill-conceived health care reform bill to approval using whatever means necessary to achieve victory. Manipulation of Parliamentary Rules, bribes and threats all combine to expose the corruption at work in both Houses of Congress.  Should “We the People” allow these unconstitutional tactics to be employed, we will have no one to blame but ourselves for loss of liberty and the eventual demise of our Republic.

The legislation which will undoubtedly reach Obama’s desk to be signed into law is opposed by so many Americans that 34 state legislatures are contemplating passage of state law exempting them from recognizing the Bill.  It is time for the legislatures in all  50 states to exercise their 10th Amendment Rights and challenge this unprecedented power grab by the Obama Administration and the 111th Congress.

The Democratic majority’s strategy in the House of Representatives to force acceptance of the Senate Bill and the Reconciliation Fix through various versions of the “Slaughter Solution” is in direct violation of Article I, Sec. 7 of the Constitution.  Any attempt to invoke this measure should result in the immediate impeachment and removal of the House Leadership.  Lacking action by Congress, the states must exercise their constitutional duty to challenge these tactics and force the Federal Courts to stay any further action on the legislation while it is referred to the Supreme Court to determine the constitutionality of the legislative process and provisions of the Bill itself.

Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional leadership are content to replace our Constitution which they have sworn to uphold, with Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals.”  Since they don’t like the rules they will just change the rules.  This fight is no longer about “health care reform.”  It is about preserving the Constitution of the United States of America.

Our Constitution must be held sacred as the “law of the land” transcending any political party, Congress and/or President.  No individual or entity, save our Creator, should have province over the Constitution.  The document contains within itself the means for Amendment and therefore, any and all attempts to circumvent that process must be stopped!

“We the People” of America must take a stand here and now to “protect and preserve” our Constitution whenever and wherever threatened even by those we have elected to represent us.  Demand that Congress abide by their limits on power, and should they not, challenge them through the Judiciary to stop abusing their authority.

  1. Sirs,
    In this processI believe we have missed a fundimental constitutional violation. The Senate bill is the one under consideration by the House to pass as written I believe. It contains taxes, fees, and penelties. That makes it a money bill. Money bills must originate in the house but this one originated in the Senate. It is therefore unconstitutional for the house to even vote on it. Correct me if I am wrong.
