Nullification - the rightful remedy for Obamacare
Please seriously consider and then lawfully act upon the following facts and law:
Pennsylvania was one of the original States that ratified the 1787 Constitution, which created the United States of America as a constitutional republican form of government.
The States, as originally intended, are the superiors parties to the Constitution for the United States of America. This Compact gave limited, enumerated powers to the central government, which the Framers and the States' Conventions of their People had created. (The creator is always superior to its creation, unless specifically stated otherwise) The 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution for the United States of America, ratified on Dec. 15, 1791, further clarified the limitations of the delegated powers granted to the USA and the States by the People. Therefore, the United States government, particularly its Courts, are not superior to the States, except with respect to the limited powers specifically enumerated in the federal Constitution. Thus, each State of the Union retains the lawful authority to challenge any action of those in the government of the United States of America that exceeds its specific, limited, enumerated powers. This is called "Interposition" or "Nullification".
Kentucky became the 15th State of these United States of America in 1792.
In November of 1799, the word "Nullification" was used for the first time in a Resolution passed by the Commonwealth of Kentucky in support of its and Virginia's1798 Resolutions, written by Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, respectfully. These Resolutions proclaimed the "Alien and Sedition Laws" to be usurpations of powers delegated to Congress. Kentucky and Virginia, while pronouncing their continued commitment to remain in the Union, emphatically stated that they could not stand silent and thus seemingly acquiesce to these gross and blatant usurpations of powers not delegated to the central government in the Constitution. (See: Thomas E. Woods, Jr.'s 2010 Book - titled: Nullification - How To Resist Federal Tyranny in the 21st Century (ISBN 978-1-59698-149-2))
Pennsylvania is one of the 26 States of the Union that are Plaintiffs challenging the constitutionality of "The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act", commonly known as "Obamacare", in the Case filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida. (Case Docket No.: 3:10-CR-91-RV/EMT)
Governor Tom Corbett, then Pennsylvania's Attorney General, officially claimed that "Obamacare" is unconstitutional when, on March 23, 2010, he joined Pennsylvania in the Case filed in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Florida, Pensacola Division by the State of Florida's AG, Pam Bondi.
On Jan. 31, 2011, U.S. District Court Judge Roger Vinson ruled that "Obamacare" is unconstitutional.
In his January 31st decision, Judge Vinson discussed at length, starting on page 19 of his 78 page opinion, the history of the "Commerce Clause" of the Constitution for the United States. He confirmed, using extensive documented references, that the original intent of the "Commerce Clause" was to make interstate commerce "regular" or consistent among the several States of the Union, thus encouraging interstate commerce by eliminating the then destructive practice by several States, under the Articles of Confederation, of imposing various tariffs and taxes on products sold across State lines. He also confirmed that insurance contracts were not considered by the Framers to be "articles of commerce".
On Jan. 31, 2011, before knowing about the ruling by Judge Vinson, members of the County Sheriff Brigades of Pennsylvania (CSBP) hand-delivered a one page, personalized letter and a copy of Sheriff Richard Mack's booklet titled "The Victory For State Sovereignty" to the office of the Governor, Lt. Gov., Acting AG and each State Senator and Representative. Please read, or re-read, these documents.
It is well past time for this State to send a clear, emphatic message to all those in Washington, D.C. that: "Obamacare" is, and always has been, unconstitutional, and thus is null and void. Therefore, Pennsylvania shall not participate in this unlawful and very costly "federal regulatory program."
Nullification is the "Rightful Remedy" for "Obamacare."
