1 to 9 is more than 536 and 50

Recently news reports have been released on what has been called a hit list for executives .. However, DHS spokesman Chris Ortman said in an email that there is no evidence of an imminent attack, but he confirmed DHS is monitoring.

While the media promotes the implications on why a department that violates every principle and the virtue of what was created in 1776, the media continues to be in total blackout on more dangerous problems surrounding the imminent threats of a disaster equal to, or worse than what recently occurred at the Fukashima Japan Nuclear Power Plant. According to this report, the Fort Calhoun Nuclear Plant suffered a “catastrophic loss of cooling” to one of its idle spent fuel rod pools on 7 June after this plant was deluged with water caused by the historic flooding of the Missouri River which resulted in a fire causing the Federal Aviation Agency (FAA) to issue a “no-fly ban” over the area.

If you were to give someone who handles Federal Reserve Notes continuously they could tell almost immediately whether or not it is counterfeit money And the same principle applies to this bogus war on terror as well. After being around it long enough, I have been capable to tell the difference in the real threats to my Rights and the counterfeit.

And most of the threats that are being generated are from the very people who are supposed to be doing all they can to ensure American people are not having their rights infringed. Violating the very vows they made to a Creator of the Universe, and the people who entrusted them to support and defend the Constitution. By being elected to protect it from all of its enemies, they have become the enemy to it.
Last election, I ran a very generic campaign, which drew the interest of some and drew a conclusive point that I was their enemy for their choice to not fulfill their solemn oath.
Now the time has come, where people are attempting to flock to their favorite man or woman on the GOP in hopes that others will be persuaded in what is nothing less than a big lie.

We have become a democracy of Mob Rules and this all began to shape in 1860. It continued on over the course of 66 years, until the Globalist bankers and corporate psuedo elite became even more determined to subjugate the powers left to the people through using the electoral process and their wealth to entice those seeking power to run for office and do their work in bringing bout despotism. Some realize that the Bolshevik Revolution was funded by the Wall Street boys and they used our troops to further bring about Stalinism. Others, though they know will attempt tofalsely accuse those who reveal this .
I have been called everything from a Constitutional Nut/ Conspiracy Nut, to Un American for revealing historical data to the public on what has been occuring over the last 150 years. Most times, it is by the very ones who are seeking to retain power of the two party Mob which has been continuously delivering injury for answers to the pleas for redress by the people that are not willing to capitulate to the Socialistic Totalitarian Agenda of the Psuedo Elite, controlling the people thorough robbing them of their Rights. While accusing those who expose this danger as the perps who are robbing votes from their party to give to the other Majority faction, all what I recently labeled as Cotton Candy Politics.

Cotton candy is a sugary strings that are filled with air giving it the appearance that there is a lot of content in such a large bag. After eating it, you have to wash your face and hands to keep from spreading a disaster all over your home or in your vehicle. You are left with a sense of hyperactivity for a short while that provides no nutritional value, and leaves you with being dehydrated, hungry, and holding a bag of sticky syrup that is good for nothing but putting trash in.
I warned of the dangers, and gave logical solutions how to correct the problems during the campaign. Here are some ideas that was brought up back in the 1930s, that I promised I would revise and re-introduce.
1 The McFadden Act
2 impeach Presidents Herbert Hoover-Obama , also introduce a resolution bringing conspiracy charges against the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve and seize all assets that were of any of their estates. to pay off the National Debt. Demand all foreign countries including china pay their loans to the US from WWI- 1929.
Mr Mcfadden introduced House Resolution No. 158, articles of impeachment for the Secretary of the Treasury, two assistant Secretaries of the Treasury, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve, and the officers and directors of its twelve regional banks I proposed this resolution should be revised and updated to include every Sec of Treas from this HR158 forward. Then, follow all the prescribed ideas from Chapter 4 War Is A Racket by Major Gneral Smedley D. Butler USMC (Ret) 2 x congressional Medal of honor recipient.
STOP poking a stick in the hole of a hornet nest for political grandstanding, and do something that will actually benefit the people and revise our economic stability. Do away with the FED and seize all the Board members secretary of Treasury and directors of each of the regional banks private estates under Violating the Trading with the Enemy Act. And use those funds to pay off the national debt and give the soldiers, Veterans and their families who were either killed or maimed by these criminals actions dues and medical care they are rightfully entitled to.

Democracy is alive and rules in the US

By Earl Lofland
I don't expect most people to get this. In fact most have no clue as to what was spoken in the Bible about the Wheat and Tares.
Florida is the first state that is now going to require drug testing for welfare receivers. Some are happy thinking this is the right thing to do, and making inaccurate comments of those whom see this action as unconstitutional. Asking How is this unconstitutional, on the basis that it is completely legal a company who hires employees have to pass a drug test to get a job. And that is to support those on welfare.

They also go farther by saying If you disagree, you must have something to hide!

Many people are taught only half the facts on what this country is, By stating it is a Constitutional Republic. This can be blamed on the Dept of Educations limitation on the other part of what this Repubic is....
China, France, Russsia, Czech Republic. Poland, Iraq even Iran and North Korea are a Constitutional Republic. So if we are only that we are no different than the very countries the people are to beleive are against what we stand for.
So what exactly is our country? a Democracy? Theocracy? No, it is not supposed to be. It is a Republic but it is a Cofederated Union. This something that many have abandoned after the Second Revolution in 1865.

The Union that the original 13 states formed was confederated from bearing allegiance to any other countries in the world. This was an experiment that has drawn other countries to mold similar constitutions that are based upon what was ratified in 1787 by the central government. The Federation of the States.

Without going into a long discussion on history and the various forms of government. The theory of forcing a person to undergo a drug test before being qualified for a state program like food stamps, welfare or even medical assistance is a direct violation of the rights of individials protected under Amendment IV and V . While some suggest that it is a an entitlement, that is provided by funds that are obtained by the tax payer. The issues still surround the question whether or not this is a Democracy or a Republic. And based upon the facts that welfare programs and state assistance provisions were set in place under the New Deal, it does not matter whether or not this was intended to be a temporary or permanent program. The program while in effect, must comply with the the rights of individuals being protected who use the service provided by the State. Again, this is not a Democracy where the majority of people have control over the minority who are using state aid, And the rights of one person must be protected from the majority of those who refuse to recognize their rights. This does not imply that Welfare is a Right. Yet the program while it is im place, does have to comply to ensuring the rights of those who use the programs are not infringed.

While it seems politically correct by some to chastise someone who is on a state program it does not make that decison right. If it were right, then why stop there? Let the government demand you to serve a certain denomination or arrest you for practicing your faith. Let the Government come and bust in your door and destroy your property because you defaulted on a Student Loan.
There are people who are on the system and are not using illegal drugs nor doing anything illegal. There are some who have paid state taxes and are now faced with needing this program to assist in feeding their family. Yet if the government tells them they must give up their right of privacy or not obtain state funding, that is no different than the State creating a Danger by the very laws that wer put in place causing the economic disaster that has resulted in many families now needing the state programs, only to be exploited for the hardship that the government knowingly was accountable for causing, and then telling its victims that they are less entitled to any rights than even the Slaves who were denied their right to vote or to sit in the back of a room or bus of a business.

Would there be an outcry if those on welfare were also denied the right to vote while they are on Welfare? And what would prevent that from occuring? If you give the government an opportunity to take away one right you are saying it is open season for every right to be taken away. And that was the exact danger that the Fathers sought to prevent when they debated on the Natural rights and enclosed provisions in the Constitution, to protect Every US Citizens Rights under the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

Separation Day

We are soon to celebrate "Separation Day" in Delaware. On June 11, In Old New Castle Delaware The people will celebrate when Delaware's General Assembly passed a Resolution to throw off the old guard and fight for independence 235 years ago. The setting will have colonial rein actors present as well as a day filled with historical events, including seeing DNG's Regiment today in the Delaware 1st Regimental Militia colonial military colors.

I come from a long line of citizenry that has been residents of these three counties of Delaware, even before it was a state. (1740 approx) I also come from a long line of citizens who are from the State which was called the Palmetto State, and gave the Continental Militia the Gadsden Flag . South Carolina was requested by the Continental Army to levy moneys from the people of South Carolina to fight against despotism and join in a union of several states, that was known as the Confederated Republic, forged in 1776. While many today listen to Sarah Palin and her recantations on Paul Revere's ride. It brings to the forefront exactly why history and heritage was told to family members, from generation to generation in the Palmetto State, for the true reasons of throwing off the old guard ,and establishing a new, and a why the War Between the States was actually the Second Revolutionary War, where the first cannon fire was by the Citadel Cadets on Ft Sumter, South Carolina in 1861.
Not so surprising though, is how those who have been attempting to force the evil of despotism back upon the citizens are attempting to rewrite history. Even as I write this, people have been on Wikipedia who support Mrs. Palin, and are attempting to rewrite history according to her recantations. Though they can change books, they can’t change the memories of those who passed that heritage down from generation to generation. Family member to family member have through the ages been responsible for ensuring that their sons and daughters knew factual history and heritage to prevent those in power from having the ability to pervert and subvert actual accounts in history. Those who have argued about the War Between The States, as being to free slaves have mislead and attempted to pervert the events that led up to Georgia, South Carolina, Mississippi, Virginia, Alabama, Louisana, and yes; Delaware and Maryland’s General Assembly to debate whether to secede. There is a very reflective path that has occurred since the Confederate States of America Disbanded from the Confederated Republic formed in 1776. Yet what the Southern States experienced was not nearly as bad as what the citizens have today. Absolute despotism has now embedded itself within every level of government, and the People - the citizenry who have elected individuals into this democracy, who continue there actions are now faced with having to decide whether they will throw off this evil or continue on in hope that the democracy that was created around 1812 would stop their totalitarian forms of despotism .

In 1860 the States were not faced with the all the abuse of despotism. The central government at that time was not abusing the “General Welfare” Clause. Today, even this has been absolutely abused and excused as being properly exercised. The citizens have had thrust upon them by their respective States, through capitulating to the same political factions controlling the central government, and the States elected factions are demanding this democracy to be enforced, which was created over 170 yrs ago. Many do not comprehend the history and rich heritage of South Carolina. Therefore, it the duty of those who have long family ties to that state, to educate the rest. The Continental Army sought the aid of South Carolina in the fight against despotism and absolute tyranny from the King of England and his parliament. South Carolina, knowing full well what was being done by a tyrant in England, they were equally concerned that a central government formed here would be any better, or possibly worse, in refusing to recognize the States and the people of the States rights. For this reason is why there were provisions made before South Carolina would agree to raising any funds to the cause; to ensure that States rights and the respective people of the State would not be infringed. Later the Amendments IX and X were also ratified when the Reprsentatives met at the federal convention in 1787. However, that promise to the States was not long lived, before the powers of majority rule began to institute unfair tariffs and tributes to the Northern states and Norther Business owners were given special entitlements while the southern agricultural industry was enslaved to be nothing more than a district of the Northern States, forced to pay tribute for being in a union that was giving entitlements unjustly to the Northern business owners to enjoy their luxurious and lavish lifestyles. While those same northern business owners were employing children and entire families; forcing them to working in sweat shops and coal mines under harsh and cruel conditions, the northern citizenry were treated unfairly, and often times far worse than the “slaves" working in the Southern Agricultural industry. Yet the northern business owner’s abusive actions were never considered as abuse and despotism, as a form of slavery. Still the farming industry of the south continued being forced to pay for the operations of an ever expanding government and the southern states constant inability to recover from the failed economic depression that began in 1819, which ultimately was the cause for the States to be forced to secede.

So, this week, I hope people will remember those who have fought, and died for liberty in the proper light, not in the way that the tyrants of absolute despotism have attempted to make you believe.
Earl Lofland,

The Justifying Causes of Secession.

In justification of the passage of an ordinance of Secession, the Convention of South Carolina adopted two papers, one reported by Mr. R. B. Rhett, being styled The Ad-dress of the people of South Carolina, assembled in Convention, to the people of the Slaveholding States of the United States," and the other, reported by Mr. C. G. Memminger, being styled "Declaration of the causes which justify the Secession of South Carolina from the Federal Union." As these official papers have historic value, they are inserted in full.

The former of these two papers is as follows:

It is seventy-three years, since the Union between the United States was made by the Constitution of the United States. During this time, their advance in wealth, prosperity and power, has been with scarcely a parallel in the history of the world. The great object of their Union, was defence against external aggressions; which object is now attained, from their mare progress in power. Thirty-one millions of people, with a commerce and navigation which explore every sea, and with agricultural productions which are necessary to every civilized people, command the friendship of the world. But unfortunately, our internal peace has not grown with our external prosperity. Discontent and contention have moved in the bosom of the Confederacy, for the last thirty-five years. During this time, South Carolina has twice called her people together in solemn Convention, to take into consideration, the aggressions and unconstitutional wrongs, perpetrated by the people of the North on the people of the South. These wrongs, were submitted to by the people of the South, under the hope and expectation, that they would be final. But such hope and expectation, have proved to be vain. Instead of producing forbearance, our acquiescence has only instigated to new forms of aggressions and outrage; and South Carolina, having again assembled her people in Convention, has this day dissolved her connection with the States, constituting the United States.

The one great evil, from which all other evils have flowed, is the overthrow of the Constitution of the United States. The Government of the United States, is no longer the Government of Confederated Republics, but of a consolidated Democracy. It is no longer a free Government, but a Despotism. It is, in fact, such a Government as Great Britain attempted to set over our Fathers; and which was resisted and defeated by a seven years� struggle for independence.

The Revolution of 1776, turned upon one great principle, self-government,�and self-taxation, the criterion of self-government. Where the interests of two people united together under one Government, are different, each must have the power to protect its interests by the organization of the Government, or they cannot be free. The interests of Great Britain and of the Colonies, were different and antagonistic. Great Britain was desirous of carrying out the policy of all nations towards their Colonies, of making them tributary to her wealth and power. She had vast and complicated relations with the whole world. Her policy towards her North American Colonies, was to identify them with her in all these complicated relations; and to make them bear, in common with the rest of the Empire, the full burden of her obligations and necessities. She had a vast public debt; she had an European policy and an Asiatic policy, which had occasioned the accumulation of her public debt; and which kept her in continual wars. The North American Colonies saw their interests, political and commercial, sacrificed by such a policy. Their interests required, that they should not be identified with the burdens and wars of the mother country. They had been settled under Charters, which gave them self-government; at least so far as their property was concerned. They had taxed themselves, and had never been taxed by the Government of Great Britain. To make them a part of a consolidated Empire, the Parliament of Great Britain determined to assume the power of legislating for the Colonies in all cases whatsoever. Our ancestors resisted the pretension. They refused to be a part of the consolidated Government of Great Britain.

The Southern States, now stand exactly in the same position towards the Northern States, that the Colonies did towards Great Britain. The Northern States, having the majority in Congress, claim the same power of omnipotence in legislation as the British parliament. "The General Welfare," is the only limit to the legislation of either; and the majority in Congress, as in the British parliament, are the sole judges of the expediency of the legislation, this "General Welfare" requires. Thus, the Government of the United States has become a consolidated Government; and the people of the Southern States, are compelled to meet the very despotism, their fathers threw off in the Revolution of 1776.

The consolidation of the Government of Great Britain over the Colonies, was attempted to be carried out by the taxes. The British parliament undertook to tax the Colonies, to promote British interests. Our fathers, resisted this pretension. They claimed the right of self-taxation their Colonial Legislatures. They were not represented in the British parliament, and, therefore, could not rightly be taxed by its legislation. The British Government, however, offered them a representation in parliament; but it was not sufficient to enable them to protect themselves from the majority, and they refused the offer. Between taxation without any representation, and taxation without a representation adequate to protection, there was no difference. In neither case would the Colonies tax themselves. Hence, they refused to pay the taxes laid by the British parliament.

And so with the Southern States, towards the Northern States, in the vital matter of taxation. They are in a minority in Congress. Their representation in Congress, is useless to protect them against unjust taxation; and they are taxed by the people of the North for their benefit, exactly as the people of Great Britain taxed our ancestors in the British parliament for their benefit. For the last forty years, the taxes laid by the Congress of the United States, have been laid with a view of subserving the interests of the North. The people of the South have been taxed by duties on imports, not for revenue, but for an object inconsistent with revenue�to promote, by prohibitions, Northern interests in the productions of their mines and manufactures.

There is another evil, in the condition of the Southern towards the Northern States, which our ancestors refused to bear towards Great Britain. Our ancestors not only taxed themselves, but all the taxes collected from them, were expended amongst them. Had they submitted to the pretensions of the British Government, the taxes collected from them, would have been expended in other parts of the British Empire. They were fully aware of the effect of such a policy in impoverishing the people from whom taxes are collected, and in enriching those who receive the benefit of their expenditure. To prevent the evils of such a policy, was one of the motives which drove them on to Revolution. Yet this British policy, has been fully realized towards the Southern States, by the Northern States. The people of the Southern States are not only taxed for the benefit of the Northern States, but after the taxes are collected, three-fourths, of them are expended at the North. This cause, with others, connected with the operation of the General Government, has made the cities of the South provincial. Their growth is paralyzed; they are mere suburbs of Northern cities. The agricultural productions of the South are the basis of the foreign commerce of the United States; yet Southern cities do not carry it on. Our foreign trade, is almost annihilated. In 1740, there were five ship yards in South Carolina, to build ships to carry on our direct trade with Europe. Between 1740 and 1779, there were built in these yards, twenty-five square rigged vessels, besides a great number of sloops and schooners, to carry on our coast and West India trade. In the half century immediately preceding the Revolution, from 1725 to 1775, the population of South Carolina, increased seven-fold.

No man can for a moment believe, that our ancestors intended to establish over their posterity, exactly the same sort of Government they had overthrown. The great object of the Constitution of the United States, in its internal operation, was, doubtless, to secure the great end of the Revolution�a limited free Government�a Government limited to those matters only, which were general and common to all portions of the United States. All sectional or local interests, were to be left to the States. By no other arrangement, would they obtain free Government, by a Constitution common to so vast a Confederacy. Yet by gradual and steady encroachments on the part of the people of the North, and acquiescence on the part of the South, the limitations in the Constitution have been swept away; and the Government of the United States has become consolidated, with a claim of limitless powers in its operations.

It is not at all surprising, such being the character of the Government of the United States, that it should assume to possess power over all the institutions of the country. The agitations on the subject of slavery, are the natural results of the consolidation of the Government. Responsibility, follows power; and if the people of the North, have the power by Congress�"to promote the general welfare of the United Staten," by any means they deem expedient�why should they not assail and overthrow the institution of slavery in the South? They are responsible for its continuance or existence, in proportion to their power. A majority in Congress, according to their interested and perverted views, is omnipotent. The inducements to act upon the subject of slavery, under such circumstances, were so imperious, as to amount almost to a moral necessity. To make, however, their numerical power available to rule the Union, the North must consolidate their power. It would not be united, on any matter common to the whole Union�in other words, on any constitutional subject�for on such subjects divisions are as likely to exist in the North as in the South. Slavery was strictly, a sectional interest. If this could be made the criterion of parties at the North, the North could be united in its power; and thus carry out its measures of sectional ambition, encroachment, and aggrandizement. To build up their sectional predominance in the Union, the Constitution must be first abolished by constructions; but that being done, the consolidation of the North, to rule the South, by the tariff and slavery issues, was in the obvious course things.

The Constitution of the United States, was an experiment. The experiment consisted, in uniting under one Government, peoples living in different climates, and having different pursuits and institutions. It matters not, how care fully the limitations of such a Government be laid down in the Constitution,�its success must at least depend, upon the good faith of the parties to the constitutional compact, in enforcing them. It is not in the power of human language to exclude false inferences, constructions and perversions in any Constitution; and when vast sectional interests are to be subserved, involving the appropriation of countless millions of money, it has not been the usual experience of mankind, that words on parchments can arrest power The Constitution of the United States, irrespective of the interposition of the States, rested on the assumption, that power would yield to faith,�that integrity would be stronger than interest; and that thus, the limitations of the Constitution would be observed. The experiment, has fairly made. The Southern States, from the commencement of the Government, have striven to keep it, within the orbit prescribed by the Constitution. The experiment, has failed. The whole Constitution, by the constructions of the Northern people, has been absorbed by its preamble. In their reckless lust for power, they seem unable to comprehend that seeming paradox�that the more power is given to the General Government, the weaker it becomes. Its strength, consists in the limitation of its agency to objects of common interest to all sections. To extend the scope of its power over sectional or local interests, is to raise up against it, opposition and resistance. In all such matters, the General Government must necessarily be a despotism, because all sectional or local interests must ever be represented by a minority in the councils of the General Government�having no power to protect itself against the rule of the majority. The majority, constituted from those who do not represent these sectional or local interests, will control and govern them. A free people, cannot submit to such a Government. And the more it enlarges the sphere of its power, the greater must be the dissatisfaction it must produce, and the weaker it must become. On the contrary, the more it abstains from usurped powers, and the more faithfully it adheres to the limitations of the Constitution, the stronger it is made. The Northern people have had neither the wisdom nor the faith to perceive, that to observe the limitations of the Constitution was the only way to its perpetuity.

Under such a Government, there must, of course; be many and endless "irrepressible conflicts," between the two great sections of the Union. The same faithlessness which has abolished the Constitution of the United States, will not fail to carry out the sectional purposes for which it has been abolished. There must be conflict; and the weaker section of the Union can only find peace and liberty, in an independence of the North. The repeated efforts made by South Carolina, in a wise conservatism, to arrest the progress of the General Government in its fatal progress to consolidation, have been unsupported, and she has been denounced as faithless to the obligations of the Constitution, by the very men and States, who were destroying it by their usurpations. It is now too late, to reform or restore the Government of the United States. All confidence in the North, is lost by the South. The faithlessness of the North for a half century, has opened a gulf of separation between the North and the South which no promises nor engagements can fill.

It gannet be believed, that our ancestors would have assented to any Union whatever with the people of the North, if the feelings and opinions now existing amongst them, had existed when the Constitution was framed. There was then, no Tariff�no fanaticism concerning negroes. It was the delegates from New England, who proposed in the Convention which framed the Constitution, to the delegates from South Carolina and Georgia, that if they would agree to give Congress the power of regulating commerce by a majority, that they would support the extension of the African Slave Trade for twenty years. African slavery, existed in all the States, but one. The idea, that the Southern States would be made to pay that tribute to their Northern confederates, which they had refused to pay to Great Britain; or that the institution of African slavery, would be made the grand basis of a sectional organization of the North to rule the South, never crossed the imaginations of our ancestors. The Union of the Constitution, was a union of slaveholding States. It rests on slavery, by prescribing a Representation in Congress, for three-fifths of our slaves. There is nothing in the proceedings of the Convention which framed the Constitution, to shew, that the Southern States would have formed any other Union; and still loss, that of they would have formed a Union with more powerful non slaveholding States, having majority in both branches of the Legislature of the Government. They were guilty of no such folly. Time and the progress of things, have totally altered the relations between the Northern and Southern States, since the Union was established. That identity of feelings, interests and institutions, which once existed, is gone. They are now divided, between agricultural�and manufacturing, and commercial States; between slaveholding, and non-slaveholding States. Their institutions and industrial pursuits, have made them, totally different peoples. That Equality in the Government between the two sections of the Union which once existed, no longer exists. We but imitate the policy of our fathers in dissolving a union with non-slaveholding confederates, and seeking a confederation with slaveholding States.

Experience has proved, that slaveholding States cannot be safe, in subjection to non-slaveholding States. Indeed, as no people can ever expect to preserve its rights and liberties, unless these be in its own custody. To plunder and oppress, where plunder and oppression can be practiced with impunity, seems to be the natural order of things. The fairest portions of the world elsewhere, have been turned into wildernesses; and the most civilized and prosperous communities, have been impoverished and ruined by anti-slavery fanaticism. The people of the North have not left us in doubt, as to their designs and policy. United as a section in the late Presidential election, they have elected as the exponent of their policy, one who has openly declared, that all the States of the United States, must be made free States or slave States. It is true, that amongst those who aided in his election, there are various shades of anti-slavery hostility. But if African slavery in the Southern States, be the evil their political combination affirms it to be, the requisitions of an inexorable logic, must lead them to emancipation. If it is right, to preclude or abolish slavery in a Territory,�why should it be allowed to remain in the States? The one is not at all more unconstitutional than the other, according to the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States. And when it is considered, that the Northern States will soon have the power to make that Court what they please, and that the Constitution never has been any barrier whatever to their exercise of power�what check can there be, in the unrestrained counsels of the North, to emancipation? There is sympathy in association, which carries men along without principle; but when there is principle�and that principle is fortified by long-existing prejudices and feelings, association is omnipotent in party influences. In spite of all disclaimers and professions, there can be but one end by the submission of the South, to the rule of a sectional anti-slavery government at Washington; and that end, directly or indirectly, must be�the emancipation of the slaves of the South. The hypocrisy of thirty years�the faithlessness of their whole course from the commencement of our union with them, shew that the people of the non-slaveholding North, are not, and cannot be safe associates of the slaveholding South, under a common Government. Not only their fanaticism, but their erroneous views of the principles of free governments, render it doubtful whether, if separated from the South, they can maintain a free government amongst themselves. Numbers with them, is the great element of free government. A majority, is infallible and omnipotent. "The right divine to rule in kings," is only transferred to their majority. The very object of all Constitutions, in free popular Government, is to restrain the majority. Constitutions, therefore, according to their theory, must be most unrighteous inventions, restricting liberty. None ought to exist; but the body politic ought simply to have a political organization, to bring out and enforce the will of the majority. This theory may be harmless in a small community, having identity of interests and pursuits; but over a vast State�still more, over a vast Confederacy, having various and conflicting interests and pursuits, it is a remorseless despotism. In resisting it, as applicable to ourselves, we are vindicating the great cause of free government, more important, perhaps, to the world, than the existence of all the United States. Nor in resisting it, do we intend to depart from the safe instrumentality, the system of government we have established with them, requires. In separating from them, we invade no rights�no interest of theirs. We violate, no obligation or duty to them. As separate, independent States in Convention, we made the Constitution of the United States with them; and as separate independent States, each State acting for itself, we adopted it. South Carolina acting in her sovereign capacity, now thinks proper to secede from the Union. She did not part with her Sovereignty, in adopting the Constitution. The last thing, a State can be presumed to have surrendered, is her Sovereignty. Her Sovereignty, is her life. Nothing but a clear, express grant, can alienate it. Inference is inadmissible. Yet it is not at all surprising, that those who have construed away all the limitations of that Constitution, should also by construction, claim the annihilation of the Sovereignty of the States. Having abolished barriers to their omnipotence, by their .faithless constructions in the operations of the General Government, it is most natural that they should endeavor to do the same towards us, in the States. The truth is, they, having violated the express provisions of the Constitution, it is at an end, as a compact. It is morally obligatory only on those, who choose to accept its perverted terms. South Carolina, deeming the compact not only violated in particular features, but virtually abolished by her Northern confederates, withdraws herself as a party, from its obligations. The right to do so, is denied by her Northern confederates. They desire to establish a sectional despotism, not only omnipotent in Congress, but omnipotent over the States; and as if to manifest the imperious necessity of our secession, they threaten us with the sword, to coerce submission to their rule.

Citizens of the slaveholding States of the United States! Circumstances beyond our control, have placed us in the van of the great controversy between the Northern and Southern States. We would have preferred, that other States should have assumed the position we now occupy. Independent ourselves, we disclaim any design or desire, to lead the counsels of the other Southern States. Providence has cast our lot together, by extending over us an identity of pursuits, interests and institutions. South Carolina, desires no destiny, separate from yours. To be one of a great Slaveholding Confederacy, stretching its arms over a territory larger than any power in Europe possesses�with a population, four times greater than that of the whole United States, when they achieved their independence of the British Empire�with productions, which make our existence more important to the world, than that of any other people inhabiting it�with common institutions to defend, and common dangers to encounter�we ask your sympathy and confederation. Whilst constituting a portion of the United States, it has been your statesmanship which has guided it, in its mighty strides to power and expansion. In the field, as in the cabinet, you have led the way to its renown and grandeur. You have loved the Union, in whose service your great statesmen have labored, and your great soldiers have fought and conquered�not for the material benefits it conferred, but with the faith of a generous and devoted chivalry. You have long lingered in hope over the shattered remains of a broken Constitution. Compromise after compromise, formed by your concessions, has been trampled under foot, by your Northern confederates. All fraternity of� feeling between the North and the South is lost, or has been converted into hate; and we, of the South, are at last driven together, by the stern destiny which controls the existence of nations. Your bitter experience, of the faithlessness and rapacity of your Northern confederates, may have been necessary, to evolve those great principles of free government, upon which the liberties of the world depend, and to prepare you for the grand mission of vindicating and re-establishing them. We rejoice, that other nations should be satisfied with their institutions. Contentment, is a great element of happiness, with nations as with individuals. We, are satisfied with ours. If they prefer a system of industry, in which capital and labor are in perpetual conflict�and chronic starvation keeps down the natural increase of population�and a man is worked out in eight years�and the law ordains, that children shall be worked only ten hours a day�and the sabre and bayonet are the instruments of order�be it so. It is their affair, not ours. We prefer, however, our system of industry, by which labor and capital are identified in interest, and capital, therefore, protects labor�by which our population doubles every twenty years�by which starvation is unknown, and abundance crowns the land-by which order is preserved by an unpaid police, and many fertile regions of the world, where the white man cannot labor, are brought into usefulness by the labor of the African, and the whole world is blessed by our productions. All we demand of other peoples is, to be let alone, to work out our own high destinies. United together, and we must be the most independent, as we are among the most important of the nations of the world United together, and we require no other instrument to conquer peace, than our beneficent productions. United together, and we must be a great, free and prosperous people, whose renown must spread throughout the civilized world, and pass down, we trust, to the remotest ages. We ask you to join us, in forming a Confederacy of Slaveholding States.

They still not grasp Amendments II, IX and X.

Below is an article that was published in today's Delaware State News.

In reading the article I found several problems that should be addressed.
Just because Delaware State Police Captain does not see a problem with the Federal government denying a person from owning firearms. Does not mean that the threat will be there. The State should be providing protection against a Tyrannical Threat of a Federal Injunction to deny a person their right. Whether it is for an hour, day, Month or years.

There are measures that can be done for states to have access without the federal government being involved. Yet, this poses a risk for more a larger central government to be in place. It also has a clear evidence that the State politicians are too eager to surrender your rights to a central government.

And anyone of the Members in General Assembly who decide to pass any part of HB 95 is violating their oath to defend your rights protected under the State Consitution and US Constituiton. Will Delawareans oppose this measure? And when it is passed how do you reverse the damage that will be in place?

One of the major flaws include Combat veterans who are at risk of being denied their right protected under Amendment 2 of the US Constitution and Article 1 §6, as well as Article 1 §20. Right to keep and bear arms. Section 20. A person has the right to keep and bear arms for the defense of self, family, home and State, and for hunting and recreational use

Senate OKs Gun-control Database bill.Authorizes agencies to provide information on mentaly ill individuals
DOVER- One of four gun-control bills introduced by legistators and Governor Jack Markell in February passed in the Senate Tuesday.

House Bill 48 would authorize state agencies to provide information on mentally ill individuals to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS). Delawre is one of 10 states that have provided no information on mentally ill individuals to the federal database. The Bill passed with 11 senators voting yes, eight voting no, one not voting and one absent.
Current Delaware law prohibits the state from sharing information with the federal database, said Sen Patricia Blevins, D-Elsemere, the Senaate floor sponsor of the bill.
Several legislators expressed concerns about the bill.
Sen. David Lawson, R. Marydell., a former gunshop owner, said he agrees that the information should be provided to the federal database but disagrees with how HB48 attempts to do so.

HB 48 will abolish the states existing firearms transaction program once the new system is established. Sen. Lawson said he feels this program should remain intact.
"I find that our state folks are doing a much better job of keeping guns out of the hands of bad guys. than the feds," he said also felt the bill should not eliminate the state Firearms Transaction Approval Program (FTAP).

"If thge bill just delt with the mentally ill issue, then, I'd Support it." he said.
While the state system is effetive Sen Blevins said it doesn't go far enough.
"I agree the state does a wonderful job, but it does it for Delaware and the other 49 states do not have access to the information," she said, "This information needs to go to other states.

Delaware State Police Capt. Jason Sapp said the federal and State processes are repetitive , and if the federal government takes over firearms approval practics there's no need for the state to retain one.

The main focus is on ensuring that the federal government has all the information," he said of HB 48. "Our process is 100-percent duplicative of the federal one Lawson said he thinks it is neccessary to ensure that the rights of Delawareans are not in jeopardy.

If an individual is denied the right to purchas a firearm and appeals that decision at the state level they have a response within a few days. This process is lengthened by a few months or even years at the federal level, Sen Lawson Said.

Sen. Bushweller, D-Dover, expressed a similar concern to Capt. Sapp.
"A right delayed is a right denied for the time that a righis is delayed, he said, That a Concern for me."

Of 432 Transactions in 2010, Capt Sapp said there were 65 denials based on mental health records and and 81 denials that were rescinde. He told members of the Senate Tuesday that he doesn't anticipate this number rising too significantly it the federal system takes over for the state system.

"I have no reason to believe that by moving to this model, we'll see a huge upswing in people denied. from purchasing weapons," he said.

Sen. Lawson Argued that the bill's sponsors should consider rescinding the original bill that prohibits the state from releasing information to the federal system insteand of creating a new law.
"Keep FTAP in place so our citizens are better served by the state" he said.

HB 95 passed with one Senate amendment, which correcteed technical errors. and will now head back to the HOuse for final approval with that amendment.
