From the February 2010 Idaho Observer:
Make Congress Obey the Constitution -- Support the Enumerated Powers Act
Calling all constitutionalists! Here’s a bill you’ll be glad to support: The Enumerated Powers Act, H.R. 450 and S. 1319, “To require Congress to specify the source of authority under the United States Constitution for the enactment of laws, and for other purposes.”
With so many unconstitutional bills being introduced, the Enumerated Powers Act addresses the root cause of the incremental loss of our freedoms. Three provisions of the unconstitutional Patriot Act are up for renewal; Senator John McCain has introduced the Dietary Supplement Safety Act of 2010 (S.3002) that would essentially gut DSHEA and usher in the UN’s Codex Alimentarius; and Obama’s proposed Affordable Healthcare Act is still on the table.
Take advantage of the heightened receptiveness of Congress in this momentous election year featuring a rapidly growing constitutionalist movement to help convince your representative and senators to support the Enumerated Powers Act.
Use these bills to put the pressure on your representative and senators to adhere to the Constitution. Write, phone, fax and email them. Ask them to cosponsor these bills and work to bring them to the floors of the House and Senate for a vote. Get them on the record as to their support or lack of support for obeying the Constitution.
Also use these bills to vet and influence candidates for the House and Senate in your area. The goal is to have a majority of constitutionalists in Congress that will abide by the enumerated powers of the Constitution.
Use the sample letter below and let's send this message to every Congressman.
Subject: Obey the Constitution -- Support the Enumerated Powers Act
Dear Representative/Senator ____________:
Here's a long-overdue piece of legislation that will heal many of the wounds inflicted upon our once great Constitutional Republic. Your co-sponsorship of this legislation is not to be brushed aside lightly, as it challenges your loyalty to your "Oath of Office".
I refer to The Enumerated Powers Act, H.R. 450 and S. 1319: "To require Congress to specify the source of authority under the United States Constitution for the enactment of laws, and for other purposes."
The key provision of H.R. 450 (S. 1319 reads virtually the same): "Each Act of Congress shall contain a concise and definite statement of the constitutional authority relied upon for the enactment of each portion of that Act. Failure to comply with this section shall give rise to a point of order in either House of Congress."
Sixty members of the House are already cosponsors of H.R. 450. There are 23 cosponsors of S. 1319 in the Senate.
While there's some still hope: It's very critical that, as our country tailspins out of control of the people and into the dust bin of history, we do the only thing that will restore our freedom, sovereignty and prosperity, and that is for our government to obey the Constitution!
It is not expected that you'll turn your back on your fellow Americans and the Constitution. We the People instruct you to co-sponsor this bill without delay.
Yours in Freedom,
