Two Reciprocity Bills: A Strong Bill verses a Compromise

Great news!

Pro-gun Senate champions John Thune (R-SD) and David Vitter (R-LA) have decided to stand their ground on their concealed carry reciprocity legislation, despite pressure from gun rights compromisers to weaken the bill.

Specifically, Senators Thune and Vitter are sticking with their version of the bill, which recognizes the right to carry concealed by residents of “Vermont-style” and “Constitutional Carry” states.

Such states do not require residents to obtain the government’s permission before carrying a firearm for self-protection. There are currently 17 states that have either enacted legislation in the past or have introduced “Constitutional Carry” laws in their legislatures this year.

Current law:
Vermont
Alaska
Arizona
Montana
Wyoming

Considering legislation:
Colorado
Georgia
Iowa
Kentucky
Maine
New Hampshire
Ohio
Oklahoma
Rhode Island
South Carolina
South Dakota (on governor’s desk)
Virginia

More states are being added to the list all the time. The Thune-Vitter legislation will fully recognize gun owners’ rights in these states.

A competing bill, however, pulls the rug out from under “Constitutional Carry.” Sponsored by Senators Mark Begich (D-AK) and Joe Manchin (D-WV), the compromise bill still requires a government permit for reciprocity, regardless of state law.

So while the states are moving in the direction of more freedom, the Begich and Manchin bill would keep even the most pro-gun states tied to a permitting system. Why are they doing this? After all, criminals don’t get in line at the police station to get a permit. It’s the law-abiding gun owners who go through the process of proving their innocence before being “allowed” to carry a firearm.

We have a message for Begich and Manchin: gun ownership is a right, not a privilege.

It is vitally important that your two Senators hear from you right away. Urge them NOT to support the compromise bill, and instead support the pro-gun legislation offered by Senators Thune and Vitter.

ACTION: Contact your Senators. Insist that they cosponsor the strong pro-gun Thune-Vitter reciprocity bill, which protects Constitutional Carry, and urge them not to support the Begich-Manchin compromise.

REAL ID: A Major Victory is Near

"Repeal the Real ID Act" is DownsizeDC.org's oldest active campaign.

That's because REAL ID - which is a de facto national ID card - lays the foundation for a future police state.

That's why so many people have fought against it so hard for so long. And thanks to that resistence REAL ID still hasn't been implimented, six years after it became law! A big part of this is because of your pressure.

And now there's more good news . . .

There's a silver lining in the monstrous, 1,926-page appropriations bill (H.R. 3082). This bill rescinds funding for a REAL ID "hub." The House already passed the bill, and the Senate will consider it as soon as TODAY.

This hub would have created a centralized ID verification system, where states share driver information with each other. Without this hub, REAL ID suffers a fatal blow.

That's why we're asking you to tell Congress to support this cut in REAL ID's budget, and to repeal REAL ID altogether
.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

I'm glad that the House is rescinding funding for a REAL ID hub in the H.R. 3082 budget bill. My Senators should ensure that this rescission remains in the bill.

But you should do more. Repeal REAL ID entirely.

* REAL ID assumes I am a foreign terrorist or illegal immigrant, and that I must "prove" my innocence
* I am punished with higher fees, more red tape, and longer DMV lines
* And my private information will be centralized, making me more susceptible to identity theft and other dangers

Furthermore . . .

* The REAL ID law still exists as an unconstitutional, unfunded mandate on the cash-strapped states
* 21 states will still be out of compliance when it is scheduled to take effect in May, 2011 http://www.seattlepi.com/local/431425_realid08.html?source=mypi
* By de-funding the verification hub, there's no longer any point in forcing the states to implement REAL ID

This is America, land of the free. It's not the land of "Your papers, please." Help restore liberty to America and repeal REAL ID.

Read the Bills Act and Food Safety: What Happens When Your Senators Don't Read the Bill

Read the Bills Act and Food Safety: What Happens When Your Senators Don't Read the Bill
Posted by John Markley

A funny thing happened on the way to the "food safety" bill's passage. As the letter below says, Senators violated a provision of the Constitution when they passed their version (S.510), and House leaders will not accept this violation.

Meanwhile, all 42 Senate Republicans have vowed to filibuster ALL legislation unless bills to fund the government and to prevent the New Years Day tax increase are considered first.

We are pleased with this development, because it makes final passage of the dangerous "food safety" bill much more difficult.

But it should also be pointed out that if DownsizeDC.org's Read the Bills Act (RTBA) had been in force, the Senate would not have made this mistake. And so we're asking you to tell Congress to introduce and pass the Read the Bills Act.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

The "food safety" bill that passed the Senate, S.510, is further proof that we need the Read the Bills Act (RTBA). S.510 includes new taxes, whereas the Constitution requires all tax bills to originate in the House.

This means the 73 Senators who voted for it either . . .

* Knowingly violated their oath of office to support the Constitution, or . . .
* They didn't read the bill!

The Read the Bills Act (RTBA) would have prevented this . . .

* It requires all bills that come to a vote to be read before a quorum in each chamber
* It also requires that they be posted online, in their final form, seven days before a final vote

If the RTBA was in force, surely many people would have caught this mistake BEFORE the bill's passage.

If you take your oath of office seriously, you wouldn't knowingly pass a bill that clearly violates the Constitution. The RTBA would prevent that from happening. I therefore expect you to introduce this bill soon.

END LETTER

You may send your letter using DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System.

We also invite you to add your blog or website to the Read the Bills Act Coalition. By joining, you help spread the word about the RTBA, and in return we will list your site on our blog and announce it in a Downsizer-Dispatch reaching over 30,800 readers. You may learn more and join here.

This month we welcome Live Free Radio to the coalition. B)

Finally, in November the House passed 22 bills totaling 426 pages, and the Senate passed 13 bills totaling 598 pages. You can see summaries of these bills on our blog.

URGENT: Food Safety Vote Next Week

Quote of the Day: "Given sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine." -- Woody Page, Denver sports columnist

S. 510 will make your food more expensive and less safe. It will drive many small farms out of business. The leaders of the "lame duck" Congress want to pass this falsely named "food safety" bill NEXT WEEK, but . . .

They'll need 60 votes to break Sen. Coburn's "hold" on the bill.

That means we can defeat S.510 with just 40 votes, but we must apply the pressure now!

Please send a letter right now telling your Senators to oppose S. 510.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

S.510 will crush family farms and small businesses with excessive regulations - even though they were NOT the source of recent food safety problems.

S.510 also violates the Fourth Amendment by allowing the FDA to invade and search farms and food producers without court permission.

If you think the FDA will use this new power responsibly, think again. David Gumpert reports that the FDA shut down two raw-milk cheese-makers for the presence of the pathogen listeria, even though . . . http://tinyurl.com/2e5x2sq

* Nobody got sick
* The FDA almost never shuts down companies for the mere presence of pathogens - even when people DO get sick
* Companies have previously been allowed to clean things up, rather than shut down.

If the FDA is starting to behave like this now, just imagine how abusive it will be under S.510?

Finally, it must be stressed that big agribusiness has been the source of most recent food safety problems. S.510 will make this problem worse by burdening small producers, and driving them out of business. This will make our food supply more centralized, less diverse, and more dangerous.

Please STOP S.510. This Congress must NOT pass any food safety bill. Remember, the voters have repudiated this Congress, and it's heavy handed ways.

END LETTER

You can send your letter through DownsizeDC's Educate the Powerful System.

Remember, Congress DOES read your letters. They DO have an impact. The more letters they receive, the more we're likely to succeed.

So please forward this, share on your social networks, and retweet this message: http://twitter.com/#!/DDCDispatch

And thank you for being a DC Downsizer!

Elections are Over but the Battle to Victory is Ongoing

I was as elated to see so many smug Democrats and a few Republicans loose their seats as the Americans who went out and voted Tuesday.

However, being the realist that I am, we still have many of the same incumbents in office who helped get our nation to where it is today.

Obamacare and the National health care database legislation should be on the forefront of legislation that is repealed.

We don't need it changed, we need it removed from the books period.

The American people also need their rights returned. So while the newly elected Republicans are talking so highly of the Constitution and patriotic Americans, they need to take a deep look at Legislation that has been passed since 2001.

One such republican will be the New Speaker of the House.

You get the point. He spoke big about Freedoms, Liberty, the Constitution and being Patriotic when in reality he has not done much to protect or preserve them.

Legislation, such as the Patriot Act, Real ID, military Commissions Act and the like. Americans are tired of elected representatives ignoring their oath of office.

It is up to We the People to keep a close eye on those officials and make certain that they do the job they were elected to do or we throw them out as well.

No more excuses, you have control of the House and if Obama does not bend to the Will of the people, he too will be looking for a job in 2012 just like Republican Herbert Hoover did in 1932.

We know the Democrats will not work to preserve our Liberties, RINO's are no different. If the Republicans cannot get back to their conservative roots, then we may just need to replace both parties with individuals who are willing to step up and do the job they were elected to do.

STAND UP, SPEAK UP, LIVE FREE

Vote for the Constitution on Election Day

The candidates are starting to get it. I have heard so many political ads that speak about the Constitution. My hope and prayer is that this is not just campaign rhetoric and these people will actually stick to their word.

RINO's and Liberal Democrats could care less about the Constitution, they have proved that over the last 20 years. But things need to change and Americans want it done right.

Americans do not want health care mandates, they want access to health care without being forced to a system that is more expensive and provides less service and they certainly do not want a panel deciding on what care is best for them based on all their medical history that is in a national database. They want to make that decision with their doctors and family members.

Americans are tired of the back and forth between Republicans and Democrats who look nearly identical in all they do when it comes to overspending and government control of our liberties.

If you haven't considered members of the Constitution Party, you may want to. They have a platform that nearly anyone who calls themselves a member of the Tea Party would be proud.

Get out there and vote but stop putting up with the same incumbents on both sides who refuse to stand up for you, their constituents, the one they are supposed to represent but refuse to do so.

Remember voting for the lessor of two evils is still voting for evil.

Keep an eye on those that do get elected. Make sure that they are doing their jobs of representation and if not, VOTE THEM OUT or RUN Against them.

Americans will speak loud and clear to the RINOS and Obama Democrats tomorrow. Lets hope the message gets through.

STAND UP, SPEAK UP, LIVE FREE!

What is Really Going on with the Foreclosures?

The Banks, like Bank of America, JP Morgan and others are stopping the foreclosures of hundreds of thousands across the country.

Some of the banks have been found to have hired homeless people, laid off waitresses and the like to sign off on the mortgages without proper training to ensure that the paperwork was all done properly.

People who were being foreclosed on were starting to challenge their foreclosures by making the banks prove they actually owned the title to the home they were foreclosing on.

Because most banks and mortgage companies trade or sell off titles, they had a hard time of proving ownership and in many cases the home owners were able to prevent their home from being foreclosed.

But are the banks themselves stopping the foreclosures under the guise of checking the paperwork or are they doing what they can to prevent a huge inventory of empty houses hitting the the already saturated housing market?

Obviously flooding the market with more homes would decrease the value of those homes and lower the prices. The banks would stand loosing billions.

In 2009, Bank of American sad "We do not hold foreclosed properties off the market." In that same year we read about a "Shadow Inventory" of homes that the banks refused to put on the market.

In January 2010, "Bank of America to release homes into the Nevada housing market..It's part of the so-called "phantom inventory" of foreclosed homes being held by banks as they work out loan modifications and negotiate short sales."

This appears to be a manipulation of the housing market and should be investigated. Yes, investigate their sloppy paperwork and give justice to those who have had their homes unjustly foreclosed, but also investigate the banks and mortgage companies themselves from what could be nothing more than a price manipulation scheme.

Unfunded Mandates: Three Things No One Else Is Telling You

Quote of the Day: "Things in our country run in spite of the government, not by the aid of it." -- Will Rogers (1879-1935) American humorist

Unelected federal bureaucrats are forcing New York City to spend $27 million to replace their street signs. Our bureaucratic overlords maintain that streets signs must contain both upper and lower case letters, instead of just capital letters! Do you feel grateful that you're being protected from upper case streets signs?

This dictatorial mandate comes from the Federal Highway Administration, and applies to every community in America, not just New York City.

But don't blame this outrage on the busy-body Democrats. This isn't an Obama directive. The rule was actually promulgated back in 2003 -- during the Bush Administration.

Regardless of which party rules, very little is done to stop unfunded mandates or bureaucratic law-making. The problem is, Republicans have been promising to get rid of unfunded mandates since their so-called "Contract With America" way back in 1994!

The GOP controlled Congress and the White House for 6 years, but did exactly nothing to honor their promise.

This shows why we must remain committed to principles, not parties or politicians.

Now, here is what can be done about unfunded mandates, and you'll only read these next two ideas HERE, in the Downsizer-Dispatch.

First, New York City could tell the feds to, "Go to hell." City officials swore an oath to the Constitution too. They've read the highest law in the land. They know this is wrong.

That would be called, "nullification." To help promote this idea, Downsize DC President Jim Babka spoke at the Nullify Now! Conference in Orlando on October 10. There will also be two other opportunities to see (and meet) him this weekend. You can see the details here.

Second, if a single sitting GOP member of Congress was serious about fixing unfunded mandates imposed by un-elected bureaucrats, then he or she could sponsor DownsizeDC.org's Write the Laws Act.

There are candidates who've pledged to do this, and you can read their names here.

But no incumbent member of Congress has yet stepped forward to introduce this powerful bill which would restore ALL legislative power to the House and Senate, and deny any legislative power to the Executive Branch, just as the Founders intended.

The Republicans tell us they believe in small government and the Constitution, but if that were really true they would introduce this bill.

Allowing bureaucrats to issue dictates that have the force of law amounts to legislation without representation. How un-Constitutional is that? How un-American? How hypocritical, especially for GOP members?

Please send a letter demanding that your representatives introduce and support the Write the Laws Act.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

The FHWA is requiring street signs nationwide be replaced so that, for example, MAIN ST becomes Main St. Fonts must also be standardized. This underscores the need for the WTLA . . .

* This FHWA dictate is an unfunded mandate imposed by unelected bureaucrats on cash-strapped local governments, which means
* My state and local governments must pay for these changes by taxing me, even though we weren't represented in this ruling

I demand you do two things:

* Repeal the FHWA street sign requirement and return all powers of traffic control and safety to the states, exactly as the Tenth Amendment requires
* Introduce the Write the Laws Act so that Congress alone will write our laws and regulations, as the Constitution also requires

If you claim you want smaller, less-intrusive, common-sense government, then show me you really mean it by introducing DownsizeDC's Write the Laws Act.

More Victories in the Fight to Preserve Liberties

Quote of the Day: "Perseverance is more prevailing than violence; and many things which cannot be overcome when they are together, yield themselves up when taken little by little." -- Plutarch (c.45-125 A.D.)

There's a good chance we've defeated the cumbersome food safety bill. "The Hill" reports that Congressional leaders pulled the bill even though they had the votes to pass it.

Now why on earth would they do that? It's because . . .

Pressure works!

We and our allies stirred up enough dust to make the politicians nervous about passing this bill before the election. And they'll no longer have the votes once the people fire the Democratic majority. The final danger is that the Dems will try to force it through during a lame-duck session. We'll have to be on guard against that. Meanwhile . . .

We can celebrate another success.

Plus, in other good news . . .

Rand Paul invokes "reading the bills," and "downsizing the government" in his latest TV commercial.



And, I'll be traveling through Florida next week, promoting Downsize DC, and speaking at the NullifyNow conference
.

This last item has forced a change in our work schedule. We're going to have to delay, by one week, showing you the new home page for the new website for the Downsize DC Foundation, which is the educational arm of Downsize DC. Meanwhile . . .

There are bills to pay, and we've only sent one fundraising message all month. We got our head above water with the assistance we received in August when we had to shut down for a day, but we want to keep it that way. Today is the first day of October. Can you help close out September by making a contribution, or starting a monthly pledge?

Thanks in advance for your help, and have a good weekend.

Stimulus Funds Used to Chip Children

It is clear that the Stimulus failed to curb unemployment. Even worse is how the money is being spent. The letter below illustrates just one place where your dollars are being misused.

That's why we're asking you to tell Congress to rescind all remaining Stimulus funds.

Our hard-wired letter says simply "Please cut federal spending."

In addition to this you may borrow from or copy these additional comments . . .

Specifically, please rescind all remaining stimulus funds. It adds to the national debt but has not reduced unemployment.

Even worse is how the money is being spent.

For instance, the stimulus paid for RFID chips implanted in jerseys that Head Start preschoolers are required to wear in Richmond, CA. This Orwellian precedent scares me!

* RFID is an unproven technology vulnerable to hacking - actually making children less safe from kidnappers
* It's unknown how much private data is being collected, and for how long it will be kept, meaning . .
* It's an assault on the privacy and dignity of these children and their low-income parents. http://www.eff.org/files/filenode/rfid/RFIDletter_full.pdf

I know this program was not specifically mentioned in the Stimulus bill. That's the problem: even if you had read the bill, you wouldn't have known about this.

That's why you should rescind all remaining stimulus funds. Don't steal taxpayer money if you don't even know how it is being spent.
