Please help the Tenth Amendment Center reach itâ€™s Q1 and Q2 fundraising goal – 65% there already! Â Visit this link to invest in freedom and the constitution right now!
When Washington D.C. violates the constitution – as it does every single day – the essential question is – â€œwhat do we do about it?â€
For countless decades, Americans have been responding through protests, lawsuits, and â€œvoting the bums out.â€ Â Yet, year in and year out, federal power always grows. Â And it doesnâ€™t matter which political part is in power, or what person occupies the white house either.
But thereâ€™s another way – one that people like Thomas Jefferson advised – â€œWhensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers….a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.â€
Since 2006, the Tenth Amendment Center has been the tip of the spear advancing this message – that when states pass laws to reject and nullify unconstitutional federal â€œlawsâ€ regulations and mandates – itâ€™s not rebellion…itâ€™s duty.
Already, 8 states have passed firearms freedom acts to reject some federal gun laws, 15 states – most recently, Arizona – are actively defying D.C. on cannabis laws, 7 states have passed health care freedom acts to reject health care mandates, and in 2011 – already 6 states – Maine, Montana, Oregon, Nebraska, Texas and Wyoming – have introduced the TACâ€™s model legislation – the federal health care nullification act – to reject not just mandates, the entire national health care bill – every single word of it.
And right now, we need your help to keep this activism and this movement growing. Â Weâ€™re in the middle of our 2011 q1 and q2 fundraising drive. Â Our goal? Â For efforts this big – pretty modest – we need just $10,000 to keep the Tenth Amendment Center operational for the next 6 months. Â why? Â because weâ€™re run almost solely by the dedicated work of volunteers – helping us run our national organization and more than 2 dozen state and local chapters too.
In just our first week alone, we already hit 65% of our goal, and Iâ€™m pretty blown away by the quick success. Â A huge thanks goes out to the nearly 150 people that have joined us already! Â Â But weâ€™ve still got a little way to go. Â Only a few thousand more… and whether youâ€™re donating $3 or $3000, every penny is going to go towards standing up for the constitution – every issue, every time, no exceptions, no excuses.
Wonâ€™t you please join us in this effort today? Â Please dig deep and help us lead this movement. Â Help us reach our goal right now – visit tenthamendmentcenter.com/donate to contribute today
Weâ€™re extremely grateful for your support…..thank you.
