                          The State Of The Union
                         Independence Day,  2010


           Our nation is facing a crisis of unsustainable debt. This is
    happening because of the increasing expense of government
    programs of socialism such as Medicare and Social Security
    Insurance. It is astonishing that in the face of such recognizable
    unsustainable debt due to these programs of socialism that our
    Government would elect to give us more programs of socialism,
    such as the new Health Care Insurance mandate, that not only
    takes away more of our rights but, increases our tax burden and
    debt.

           It is not difficult for people to understand that when you are
    forced to pay for my needs and failures, it is not freedom and it is
    not sustainable in the economy of a free society. If we continue on
    the present course, we will soon have dictatorship by a governing
    elite to manage the affairs of an economically enslaved people.

           This unfortunate event is now too close to becoming reality. If
    we the people fail to stand up for freedom under the rule of our
    Constitution's law that every veteran took an oath to defend, we are
    not only refusing to hear the wisdom of our law and of past leaders
    who are quoted below, all who were willing to lay down their lives to
    keep this land of America free and independent of foreign control
    will have sacrificed their lives in vain.

           Under the Health Care Insurance mandate law, our Muslim
    brothers and sisters who are American citizens are given an
    exemption from the mandate by the IRS on religious grounds. What
    about the rest of us who are also American patriots, but who might
    be of the same faith as those who wrote the laws of our
    Constitution? It was their faith that we should worship only God and
    depend only on Him for our needs rather than to depend on the
    power of government.

           The Christian Founding Fathers of our nation had that faith.
    They purposely restricted the powers of government by the chains
    of the Constitution's law because, it was their faith to be dependent
    only on God. This faith was in their heart and in their prayers the
    same as it is with many Americans today. It is in our hearts and
    prayers to be free and dependent only on God.

           We pray today with the same faith as those who established
    our nation's Supreme Law. We remember and honor their faith that
    was expressed in their prayers such as that given in the First
    Continental Congress on the 7th of September of 1774: ". . . Look
    down in mercy, we beseech Thee, on these our American States,
    who have fled to Thee from the rod of the oppressor and thrown
    themselves on Thy gracious protection, desiring to be henceforth
    dependent only on Thee. To Thee have they appealed for the
    righteousness of their cause; to Thee do they now look up for that
    countenance and support, which Thou alone canst give. . . "

           To abolish the IRS is as important to the restoration of our
    freedoms as the Declaration of Independence was to the freedom of
    the first American patriots of 1776. The Internal Revenue Service,
    or IRS, is the bureaucratic arm of the federal government that
    administers and enforces the income tax code. Against the will of
    the American majority the IRS has been given increased power to
    administer the new health care law that requires Americans to pay
    for health care insurance or pay a penalty.

           Could those people who do trust the government to increase in
    its expanded service, power and cost be deceived? Rather than to
    keep the government bound by the laws of the Constitution, could
    they be deceived in their acceptance of a handout with total
    dependence and trust in government? Is our Government with its
    growing connections to a New World Order of international
    governance and economy becoming part of the beast? As a result
    of unelected rulers and foreign control, what is happening to our
    independence that is celebrated on the 4th of July?

           The ability of the American people to sustain their freedoms is
    greatly dependent on their economic freedom. In this cause for
    economic freedom, the IAP promotes support for H.R. 4995 which is
    a bill to end the Health Care Insurance mandate. Also, the IAP
    promotes concurrent support for H.R. 4972 which is a bill to repeal
    the entire Health Care Act.

           The IAP asks every American patriot of liberty to stand up now
    in Committee of Correspondence or patriotic action of citizenship of
    contacting elected representatives and all others. Stand up for our
    rights while we still have the right and the means. Encourage
    everyone to support the foundation of liberty upon which our nation
    was built. Let everyone know that you support repeal of the Health
    Care Insurance mandate through every lawful means such as
    promoting support for U.S. Congressman Ron Paul's H.R. 4995.
    You can contact your Congressman HERE.

           Both of these bills, as well as similar such bills designed to
    repeal bad legislation and put a halt to the unconstitutional power
    grab by government, are assigned to Congressional committee and
    will die there without consistent Committee of Correspondence
    action by all of us.

           In realization of this, Representative Steve King of Iowa
    devised a plan through a process of motion by petition to bypass
    this Congressional committee bottleneck and force his bill, H.R.
    4972, to a vote on the House floor. See information page HERE. If
    your Congressman's name is not seen on that page, ask him or her
    to sign that motion. A minimum of 218 members of the House are
    needed to force a vote for repeal. Through this C of C action, every
    Congressman will be forced to declare their stand on this issue. If
    they do not sign the petition to discharge the repeal bill from review
    by the committees, they will be saying they are against our right to
    choose our own means for care of our health. You can contact your
    Congressman HERE.

           Addition information concerning our right to choose our own
    health care is addressed HERE, HERE and HERE.

           To promote the end of the Health Care Insurance mandate is
    an IAP priority. The IAP also promotes support for H.R. 25 which is
    the Fair Tax Act. Passage of the Fair Tax will eliminate the income
    tax and abolish the IRS. The IRS is the means used by the
    Government to enforce income tax collections and the Health Care
    Insurance mandate. The Fair Tax also has the great benefit of
    relieving the tax burden from off the back of our manufacturing and
    production industries. It is the one stimulus needed to bring jobs
    and prosperity back into our American society.

           Much appreciation is expressed to the former United States
    Comptroller General, David Walker, for his warning the American
    people about the unsustainable debt in our national economy
    resulting from government programs of socialism. Since his
    resignation in 2008, he has continued to be a leader in warning
    America about our economic crisis. He sees the present recession
    as no more than a bump in the road compared to the crisis in our
    national economy that is caused by the programs of socialism.

           His leadership is evident in the recent “America Speaks”
    event. This event was a national network of town meetings for
    discussion of the economic crisis. The event was organized and
    linked together across the nation in 19 cities and 40 other locations
    comprising a total of more than 3500 people. It is reported that a
    workbook containing information and suggested options for action
    was provided to all participants. The workbook led the discussion
    groups to focus on suggested options that would reduce
    government expenses on the one hand and increase government
    revenue on the other. Participants in the meetings were told to
    choose among these options to achieve a debt reduction goal of a
    total of 1.2 trillion dollars by the year 2025.

           With one very important exception, it explained all of the
    options very well. The National Town Meeting event will surely
    receive a good deal of consideration in the halls of Congress. The
    one very important exception to being good and informative is the
    fact that they omitted any mention of the Fair Tax. The closest they
    came to mention of the Fair Tax was to mention the consumption
    tax but, it was only in reference to a Value Added Tax or a VAT.
    This omission is seen as odd since the Fair Tax has received
    support from many Americans, especially from those who join the
    TEA parties including members of Congress and constituents. The
    Fair Tax is the one reform that completely eliminates the old tax
    code including the IRS and replaces it with a completely new tax
    code that has been described as being the best hope for the liberty
    and independence of the American people since the signing of the
    Declaration of Independence. The financial projections given to the
    Fair Tax would greatly surpass the benefits of any other option.
    This blatant omission should lead many people to doubt the
    sincerity of intentions of the “America Speaks” National Town
    Meeting event.

           There are those people and special interest groups who want
    to enslave mankind but, through the Declaration of Independence
    and the Constitution of the United States this land of America
    became a protector and defender of mankind's unalienable rights
    that come from God. Men of wisdom who respect their fellow man
    and the rights that belong to them are the backbone of America's
    freedom. Hear a few of these men in their following words:

           "To provide for us in our necessities is not in the power of
    government. It would be a vain presumption in statesmen to think
    they can do it. The people maintain them, and not they the people.
    It is in the power of government to prevent much evil; it can do very
    little positive good in this, or perhaps in anything else." (Edmond
    Burke, Works 5:133)

           "Congress had not unlimited powers to provide for the general
    welfare, but were restrained to those specifically enumerated; and
    that, as it was never meant they should provide for that welfare but
    by the exercise of the enumerated powers, so it could not have
    been meant they should raise money for purposes which the
    enumeration did not place under their action; consequently, that the
    specification of powers is a limitation of the purposes for which they
    may raise money." (Thomas Jefferson, Works 7:79)

           "I can find no warrant for such an appropriation in the
    Constitution, and I do not believe that the power and duty of the
    General Government ought to be extended to the relief of individual
    suffering which is in no manner properly related to the public
    service or benefit. A prevalent tendency to disregard the limited
    mission of this power and duty should, I think, be steadfastly
    resisted, to the end that the lesson should be constantly enforced
    that though the people support the Government the Government
    should not support the people.

           "The friendliness and charity of our countrymen can always be
    relied upon to relieve their fellow-citizens in misfortune. This has
    been repeatedly and quite lately demonstrated. Federal aid in such
    cases encourages the expectation of paternal care on the part of
    the Government and weakens the sturdiness of our national
    character, while it prevents the indulgence among our people of that
    kindly sentiment and conduct which strengthens the bonds of a
    common brotherhood." (Pres. Grover Cleveland, Essays On Liberty
    3:254)

           "The administration of private justice between the citizens of
    the same State, the supervision of agriculture and other concerns of
    a similar nature, all those things, in short, which are proper to be
    provided for by local legislation, can never be desirable cares of a
    general jurisdiction. (Alexander Hamilton, Federalist, No. 17)

           "When society's agency goes beyond its authentic function of
    defending all of society's members equally and without favor and is
    employed as an agency of plunder to 'help' some members at the
    expense of other members, then and only then can the actions of
    the agency be called slavery. Likewise, plundering the honest fruits
    of one's labor for the 'benefit' of others classifies as robbery -- legal,
    perhaps, but robbery nonetheless." (Leonard E. Read, Government-
    An Ideal Concept, P. 60)



           The IAP recognizes we have allowed ourselves to become too
    dependent on federal programs of socialism. Our nation's problems
    of unsustainable debt prove it. See IAP and C of C Freedom Alerts
    in support of the economic reforms that America needs including the
    Fair Tax HERE .
