In 1644 Rev. Samuel Rutherford published LEX, REX, The Law & the Prince to demonstrate that the natural law is above the King, Some 364 years later The Invisible Hand Blog is born after a historic election a Reagan Conservative born in the 60's molded in the Reagan years begins this blog to demonstrate the God given Unalienable rights given to every person by God. God bless the truth and let the truth be raised.
The day after, the day after when 100 of thousands of Americans upheld their rights under the First Amendment. Hundreds of thousands who peacefully assembled and let their voices ring true, from the metropolis of New York, New York across the Midwest to the golden state of California. We the people want our government back. One things is clear those in power and the elite media with their pundits, do not get the rumblings and the power of this mighty wave. The media labeled those that attended Tea Parties as: a Sexual Joke ("Tea bagging"), "steeped in insanity", "nut jobs", "not really family viewing". The Federal Government the Department of Homeland Security DHS as "right wing extremist".
DHS labels extremist as "any group that rejects federal authority in favor of state and local authority." Well, the founding fathers were right wing extremist, the 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence and the men behind the ratification of the U.S. Constitution, all were right wing extremist, because they believed in limited government and the powers not expressly granted to the Federal Government were reserved or placed in the hands of the states and we the people.
The U.S. Constitution in Article I expressly enumerates 18 powers the Federal Government can wield. In fact ask any Constitutional Scholar or that matter any U.S. Supreme Court Justice if the Federal government has "Police Power"? (the right to legislate for the public welfare, security, morals, and welfare) The answer is no, Supreme Court rulings over and over again state that "police power" rests with the states. Today, the federal government has usurped power that belongs to the states and more importantly to we the people. That is what the Tea Parties are all about, power, who in our republic maintains the power. According to the founders, it is the people and the states. The Tea Parties on April 15, 2009 was we the people addressing those grievances, just as the 56 signers listed 27 grievances (abuses) to King George III, so to we the people were making our voices heard toward the Obama administration. If this makes me a right wing extremist, so be it and here are other reasons to add me to your list, Secretary Napolitano.
I believe in God and my Lord and Savior is Jesus Christ. I not only read the Bible, but also memorize key passages. I attended and graduated from a Christian High School. I earned a Bachelor of Arts from a Bible College. My law degree was earned at a right wing extremist University founded by Pat Robertson, Regent University School of Law. I send my three children to Private Christian School. I own two SKS, Walther PPK, Colt .38, Beretta 9 mm, several shotguns, and several rifles. I am Pro-Life, no exceptions. I believe God created everything in 6 days (so does Chick-fil-a). I took two years off from my law practice and taught in the USD-500 School District at Washington H.S. in Kansas City, Kansas. I prayed as a teacher in the high school. My students used a hall pass with the image of the Ten Commandments. I taught my students that the government is constrained by the U.S. Constitution and is a limited form of government. My students also know that our government is not a democracy, but a republic. I despise debt. I back my savings with gold. Yes, I took one of my sons to a Tea Party yesterday.
Did I feel like an extremist at the Kansas City Tea Party in the shadows of the National World War I monument, The Liberty Memorial? No, I felt like a true blooded American, like my neighbors, friends, and Jefferson, Adams, Franklin, Washington, Henry, Warren, Hancock, Witherspoon, and Carroll.
One December evening in 1773, Massachusetts colonists tossed tea into Boston Harbor to protest an unresponsive government's oppressive levies.
The Stimulus Package by Obama, the Obama Mortgage Rescue Plan, & Now Obama's 10 year Budget with a $1.75 Trillion Deficit has sparked a movement, American's are fed-up with the Change that is taking place in our Nation's Headquarters, so a movement begins:
Grassroots "Taxpayer Tea Party" groups began sprouting up around the country over the last week or so.
Several cities hosted rallies yesterday, and both Kansas City and St. Louis joined the Tea Party today. The man who got it all started with his question to President Obama, RICK SANTELLI, the CNBC reporter, will have his Tea Party on March 10, 2009 in Chicago. Until then, enjoy the pictures from the Tea Party's:
