It can be angering watching the Republicans in the state legislature, as well as the national legislature, sell out our liberty and betray all of their campaign promises. But that doesn’t mean we should quit fighting. After all, it is always darkest before the dawn. Although both political parties as a whole are corrupt and evil beyond belief, there are more independent-minded folks gaining sway in legislatures across the country.
Not everyone is bought off and serving the evil federal agenda. I know from personal experience. I have spent the last several weeks e-mailing and calling state legislatures across the country. I have been pleasantly surprised to see Republicans and Democrats out there who are fed up of the abuses that plague our nation. There is an awakening that is going on, and it threatens the federal power structure like nothing that has came before it.
Independent Democrats on the issues of civil liberties and privacy rights are leading the way while independent Republicans lead on the issues of gun rights and health care. On other issues, such as industrial hemp legalization or nullifying aspects of the war on drugs, both sides are coming together in a bipartisan manner to make necessary reforms. These are rare instances where bipartisanship is actually helping the American people.
We are also seeing trends being set that can really be helpful for liberty and freedom. Arizona’s Prop. 122 put the anti-commandeering doctrine into their state constitution, and re-affirmed the state’s right to deny support and compliance with any unconstitutional or unpopular federal act for whatever reason. Several other states have similar proposals in the works for 2015. It is unknown exactly how these types of measures will be enacted, but the fact that these type of initiatives are being thrown out there and being supported by the public is bad news for the feds, and good news for the nullifiers!
In Michigan, we have lagged behind other states for resisting federal power. This is largely due to Rick Snyder and his influence on the state-level Republican Party. He has stood hand in hand with Obama to help usher in his health care and education policies. He has taken the federal blood money, rather than stand up for the Constitution and freedom. He has shown his true colors, and used his bully pulpit to pressure many Republicans into doing the wrong thing. This is unacceptable.
One thing we can do to subvert Snyder’s agenda and keep his shenanigans at bay during his second term is to re-double our efforts to nullify Obamacare. Although Medicaid has already been expanded and the damage has been done on that front, there are still pieces of legislation that can cripple the implementation of Obamacare in Michigan. We must contact our state legislators and get them to introduce these measures in 2015 immediately.
Nullifying Obamacare in Michigan
There are two linchpins needed to implement Obamacare in your state: Medicaid Expansion and State-Run Health Care Exchanges. As I stated before, Gov. Snyder did expand Medicaid, making the Wolverine State a junior partner in the implementation of Obamacare. This is bad news, but hope is not lost. There is still no state-run health care exchange in Michigan, but the legislature is rumored to be considering it in the upcoming year. The following legislation can stop that from being established. Make sure to urge your state legislators to introduce this:

There are two other measures that can be implemented at the state level to fight Obamacare alongside this. Make sure to urge your state legislators to introduce these important measures as well:
This legislation would suspend the licenses of insurers who accept illegal Obamacare subsidies in the state of Michigan: http://www.alec.org/model-legislation/health-care-freedom-act/
This legislation would prohibit state insurance commissioners from investigating or enforcing violations of federally mandated health insurance requirements: https://s3.amazonaws.com/TAClegislation/Obamacare-Commissioner.pdf

To find your state legislator’s contact information, you can go to the following link: http://openstates.org/find_your_legislator
Afterwards, you could attempt to schedule a meeting with your legislators, or their staff members, if necessary. Send us an e-mail with the notes of exactly what happened, and we can then take further action to stop Obamacare.
This is how it is done, folks. Do not accept the spin that Obamacare is the ‘law of the land’ and we just have to deal with it. That is their trick. They want you to stop fighting because that is the only way that they win. We can arm ourselves with knowledge, and be the leaders ourselves to combat this federal health care takeover. Start by contacting your legislators and politely urging them to introduce these three pieces of legislation. Alert others to do the same. Our freedom is at stake. Do the work necessary to keep our country from falling to tyranny.
