It is Time for State Governments to Recall US Senators and Members of Congress Back to be Accountable.

              Before the 17th Amendment was announced as ratified by the secretary of State in 1913. If it was legally ratified is still up in the air. Prior to the 17th amendment. The State legislator appointed two people to represent the state government in a neutral territory called Washington DC. These people were ambassadors of their respective states called Senators. When a Senator did not vote in the way the state legislator advised them to vote. They were recalled back to the state to be accountable to the government and they appointed another person to serve out the rest of the term. When the state governments appointed the US Senators, It most of the time kept a check on Federal power from encroaching on the states.

             When we have loose cannons like Sen John McCain and Carl Levin drafting laws for the US Military to snatch up US citizens in the name of the war on terror with no due process or the right of habeas corpus. There is no public danger, it is about them holding onto power.These people need to be recalled back to their states and a special election convened to vote in a new person who will be mindful of their oath. These Senators voted in free trade deals that have wrecked the industrial base in their states. They expanded Federal power over the states were it does not belong. There are many people in the US Senate who are entrenched and corrupt. They are not fit to hold office. They are in the pocket of special interest and the money junkies. This group of millionaires or empty suits need to be held accountable to the state government and the people. We do not have six years to wait.

               I looked in the books in Texas and a couple of other states. The State legislator by law, still reserves the right to recall their US Senators back to the state capital to answer why they passed a law that would undermine the farmers or the industrial base. Why are they voting for laws to undermine the right to due process of the people. Why are they voting for laws that takes away the power from the states to determine their own affairs. I hear many legislators whine and complain about Federal power over reaching were it does not belong and feel helpless to do anything about it. Passing resolutions in the state houses and senates will do much of nothing. How they states can start to have teeth in their actions against the Federal government is first start recalling these corrupt federal politicians.

               US Senators who vote against the wishes of the people and the state government need to have the Governors, Attorney Generals ,local prosecutors, private citizens and even county Sheriffs to approach the grand jury with evidence when there is suspicion of treason against the states by those we elected to go to Washington. People in local congressional districts need to recall their congress and man or woman that need to have grand jury investigations for treason against the state they are from. Many state constitutions do have the provision of treason like the US Constitution does. The people and the states need to start pushing back. Passing resolutions does not do much. It is like poking a stick at an angry bear. There needs to be indictments against the people we send to Washington who vote and accept contribution to undermine state rights and our republican form of government. We need to enforce the 9th and 10th amendments with teeth using the criminal justice system of the state.

              Right now the Federal government does not fear the people of the states because we are not going far enough. Having PACs and petitions will not work. Email, phone calls Fax messages  have no effect either. We have to start using the government close to us to start holding these people accountable if we cannot get listen to us. These politicians have broke the contract with us when they took an oath and turn right around and violate it. We have to start using the government close to us to hold these people accountable. If we do not they will not listen to us. Then we must take action somehow If we can get a few Senators and Congressmen removed from office based on grand juries and being recalled. With that legal precedent. We might put some fear back in the politicians we send to Washington letting them know, we are watching them with great skepticism, and no more we will tolerate them violating their oaths for their enrichment. If congress cannot police themselves and restrain their own power, then it is up to us to do it or no one else will.

  1. Anything "ratified" in 1913, the year the Federal Reserve Act was unsigned into law, is prima facie fraudulent.

  4. ...um,...Ryan...I think I'll take a "remedial writer" with the right ideas,...particularly vs. a "highly educated" idiot, spewing decades more of the tripe I've had to listen to all my life,...

    ....the learning curve on the BS we were "sold" as "history" is fairly steep,...by the time all of us realize how badly we've been lied to and screwed,....

    ...we'll be too old to do anything about it,..!

    Ha!

  5. Article. V.

    The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution, or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the several States, shall call a Convention for proposing Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section of the first Article;

    AND that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage
    in the Senate.

    The 17th Amendment deprived some States of their sufferage in the Senate.
    We would do well to repeal the 17th Amendment! According to the 10th Amendment , the States are distinct from the People.
    This Article is talking about the State Governments, NOT the people of a State.

    Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Virginia did not ratify that amendment and were deprived of their equal suffrage in the Senate, thereby profoundly effecting the integrity of every Amendment to the Constitution!

    Also, the unseating of the Senators of Southern States for their refusal to ratify Amendment 14 constituted “exactly” that prohibition,

    “AND that no State, without its Consent, shall be deprived of its equal Suffragein the Senate.”

    The argument that the Senate shall be the sole judge of the qualifications of its members, used to justify their expulsion, flies directly in the face of Article V. The North nitpicked a small section of the powers of each House to justify the complete overthrow of the Constitution of the United States. They did not realize that it invalidated every Amendment to the Constitution, or they did not care..
