Write Congressman Hoyer

Posted in Politics on November 28, 2010 by authorcarloscardoso

The issue with the full body scanner and other measures being undertaken by the TSA is not the delay as stated by the House Majority Leader. The issue more precisely is the legality of these unreasonable methods. Travellers have a choice of  having your picture taken naked,  submitting to a sexual groping or facing a fine of up to $11,000. The unconstitutionality of this practice under the fourth amendment is clear. The right of the people to be secure in their persons, against unreasonable search and seizure  without a warrant is being violated. The right of people to be secure in their persons, against unreasonable search and seizures shall not be violated without a warrant being issued based on probable cause. This would require a warrant to be issued against all Americans and that defies logic and is an insult to the American people. We require a different approach and should look at cheaper, constitutional and more effective ways to thwart would be  terrorists. We cannot give up our essential liberties for a little security for as Ben Franklin so wisely said, we would deserve neither. We cannot give up who we are to defeat our enemies, we must remain true to who we are and look at alternative measures. El Al is an airline that has been facing terrorist threats constantly and yet has a security record second to none. Congressman Hoyer has promised to hold hearings on this matter. I urge all Americans to write, email or call Congressman Hoyer and ask him to defend our civil liberties against this intrusive and unconstitutional practice.

TSA Rules

Posted in Uncategorized on November 18, 2010 by authorcarloscardoso

The new TSA rules implemented against the American people are illegal and certainly unconstitutional. This is intrusive and therefore an unreasonable search in the absence of probable cause as stated in the fourth amendment. We are a nation of laws and the federal government is infringing on our individual liberties and they must be stopped. The executive branch does not have the power to rule by decree. We are a republic  based on individual and state rights. This means that we are sovereign and so are the states that give to the federal government through our consent, limited powers. The actions of this administration and current congressional leadership must be stopped and challenged especially until this lame duck session is over. They continue to overstep their authority with impunity in the face of a historical repudiation at the ballot box. We must remain ever vigiliant and committed to the cause of liberty. The administration must be reigned in by the congress who ultimately controls the budget and can stop government expansion and even must look for ways to shrink the bureacracy further.

The Federal Reserve

The actions of the Federal Reserve recently buying our own debt must be stopped and reversed. The Chairman of the Federal Reserve, Ben Bernanke’s decision is devaluing our money, stealing money from the American people and must be stopped. History has shown that printing money leads to inflation.  We need oversight and accountability to us the people of the United States. The Fed must be audited and transparency restored with additional oversight to ensure they are truly working in our best interest.

2010 Victory

The elections of 2010 showed the power of the people to enact change at the ballot box. Winning an important battle but the war is far from over. Highly funded opposition to constitutional government is poised to take the fight to us. We must overcome this radical challenge for the  heart and soul of our nation. We must remain vigilant and continue to organize to take our country back to her roots. The concept of State and individual sovereignty must be reinforced. The future of the republic was never meant to be controlled by the judiciary branch interpreting the constitution and its limits on federal government power.  The individual states have the power to supercede or nullify federal law. They also have the right of seccesion as shown by the actions and the precedents established by our Founding Fathers.
