                          To Promote Health, Repeal and Reform


           The government of a free people must not establish a religion or restrict
    the free exercise thereof. Rather, it ought to encourage religion in recognition
    that respect for the Creator as expressed in the Declaration of Independence
    is necessary for the preservation of freedom.

           The American people will remain free only as long as they are able to
    keep government bound by the laws of the Constitution which will happen only
    as long as they put their trust in God rather than in government for their needs.
    When the people come to trust their government with the unconstitutional
    power to enforce socialism, their freedom is lost. When the people come to
    trust the IRS with the power to enforce payment of Income Taxes and the
    purchase of Health Insurance, their freedom is lost. There is no liberty without
    the freedom of choice.

           America is now fully engaged in a political war for freedom. Political
    forces of socialism have acted in opposition to the will of the great majority of
    the American people and have established unconstitutional laws that force
    American citizens, through the power of the IRS, to pay for health insurance
    that is a loss of freedom just as sure as if establishing a state religion. The
    American people are fighting back on many fronts to regain their freedoms.

           On the legislative front, a great effort is underway to abolish the IRS and
    restore our free enterprise economy and prosperity through support for
    passage of the Fair Tax Act. This effort has been building for several years, but
    suffered a setback when the bureaucracy of the IRS became destined to
    increase in power with the passage of the Health Care Insurance mandate law.

           Of equal importance with the fight for the Fair Tax Act, we now must stand
    up against the Health Insurance mandate law that was passed against the will
    of the great majority of the people. It has now become necessary for the repeal
    of the Health Insurance Mandate in the battle for the preservation of freedom.

           The IAP calls for the promotion of repeal of all forced socialism that
    enforces a direct tax on people for mandated insurance or for any reason of
    Fedeal Government operations. Support for bills such as H.R. 4995 will serve
    to end the Health Care Insurance Mandate.

    See H.R. 4995 information HERE and HERE found through congress.org and
    copied as follows:

           Bottom line to the future of government provided programs of social
    welfare, economists recognize that socialism, especially in the traditional
    Medicare program, is an unsustainable expense to the national economy. In
    order to cut this unsustainable expense, our Government will soon dictate
    health care and deny the expensive care that was previously given to senior
    citizens. If a person wants the life extending treatment, another means for
    acquiring the treatment, such as the purchase of a private insurance policy, will
    be necessary. Most senior citizens will not be able to afford a private insurance
    policy, especially one that includes a 40 percent sales or excise tax. It means
    that people had better begin looking for sources other than traditional modern
    medicine and government control for their health and quality of life care.

           Considering the high costs of modern medicine and related technology, it
    is easy to understand why the costs associated with maintaining the health and
    life of senior citizens has become so expensive and has become a major
    factor in the development of an unsustainable economy. This demonstrates the
    fallacies of socialism and why the cost of socialism becomes so destructive to
    the foundations of a free and independent people.

           David Walker, who was the Comptroller General of the United States, in
    an interview about two months before his 2008 resignation, said: "The problem
    is that even though the deficits have come down for three years in a row, our
    unfunded promises for Social Security and Medicare have risen dramatically.
    In our total fiscal hole it is $53 trillion. That's $440,000 per household. So the
    problem's not where we are, it's not where we've been. It's where we're headed
    unless we end up making dramatic and fundamental reforms."

           Since our Government needs to reestablish a sustainable economy
    through health-care reform that will cut spending on Medicare, we the people,
    who will be effected by this forced cost reduction in Medicare provided health-
    care service, had better become concerned about our freedom for alternative
    health care.

           There is much in testimony that has been given that provides evidence
    that natural herbs and food provide a better quality of life than can be obtained
    through expensive drug prescriptions and treatment recommended by modern
    medicine. Such testimony has been suppressed in courts of law, because of
    the greed and corruption associated with the want for money and the
    protection of large investments.

           In matters of health, do you support freedom?

           Do you support freedom of choice?

           Bill Descriptions:

    1)        HR 3395 The Health Freedom Act.

    This bill removes FDA’s power of prior restraint over all nutrient-disease
    relationship claims. Under the bill, FDA may not prohibit any statement
    concerning a nutrient affecting a disease (including treatment effects) from
    being made in the market and may only act against a statement once made if it
    possesses clear and convincing evidence that the statement is false.

    Presently FDA blocks an enormous quantity of truthful information concerning
    the effects of nutrients and foods on disease from reaching consumers. That
    barrier is removed by the Health Freedom Act, but the Act preserves the power
    of the government to prosecute those who communicate falsehood.

    The essential purpose of the First Amendment is to disarm the federal
    government of the power to impose a prior restraint on speech. The FDA has
    imposed a prior restraint for decades to the health detriment of the public.
    Passage of the Health Freedom Act will restore constitutional governance by
    reasserting the supremacy of the First Amendment over the Food and Drug
    Administration.


    2)        HR 3394 The Freedom of Health Speech Act.

    This bill prevents the Federal Trade Commission from taking action against
    any advertiser that communicates a health benefit for a product unless the FTC
    first establishes based on clear and convincing evidence that the statement
    made is false and that its communication causes harm to the public.

    Presently, the FTC reverses the Fifth Amendment burden of proof on the
    government when it charges advertisers with deceptive advertising and then
    demands that they prove their speech true based on contemporaneously held
    documentation or be deemed to have advertised deceptively.

    The Fifth Amendment requires that FTC bear the burden of proving advertising
    deceptive. It may not constitutionally shift the burden to the advertiser to prove
    its statements not deceptive.

    The First Amendment requires that FTC not act against speech unless the
    speech is provably false. It may not constitutionally accuse a party of false
    advertising yet lack proof that the advertising is false and condemn advertising
    based on an absence of documentation concerning the truth of the statement
    rather than the presence of evidence establishing the falsity of the statement.


    3)        HR 3396 The Congressional Responsibility and Accountability Act.

    This bill prohibits regulations promulgated from regulatory agencies from going
    into effect unless passed into law by Congress in the way in which the
    Constitution designates.

    Under Article I of the Constitution, the Congress of the United States, our
    elected representatives, are the ones given the exclusive power to make laws.
    In violation of the non-delegation doctrine, about 90% of all law created by the
    federal government is the product of unelected heads of bureaucratic
    agencies, not our elected representatives.

    From 1934 to the present, the Congress of the United States has delegated
    executive, legislative, and judicial governing power to these agencies. The
    founding fathers warned that this combination would give birth to tyranny, self-
    dealing, and corruption and would be the death of liberty. Because the
    unelected bureaucracy makes the laws, the nation has been transformed from
    a republic into a bureaucratic oligarchy.

    Congressman Ron Paul’s Congressional Responsibility and Accountability Act
    restores constitutional government by returning to Congress the responsibility
    to make laws, thereby making them once again accountable for the laws to
    those who elect them.




    "And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to
    bondage."      (New Testament, Hebrews 2:15)
