Open Letter


Idaho State Legislature

Dear Senators and Representatives of the Great State of Idaho,

 This is a confusing time in the United States.  There are forces at work whose goal it is to break up the United States dissolving existing governing structures through cannibalization of powers - replacing them with new, regional authorities over which the voters have no control - and in fact, for the majority, no knowledge even of their existence. 


When I sat down to write, it was my intention to request that you support SJM 113.  However, after reading the first few paragraphs, it is with a great deal of disappointment that I must request that you defeat SJM 113.  The paragraphs:  

WHEREAS, we strongly object to any treaty or agreement, which threatens to
  9    violate national security, private property, United States commerce, constitu-
 10    tional rights and American sovereignty while emphasizing our commitment to the
 11    Pacific Northwest Economic Region (PNWER) and other cooperative nations  work-
 12    ing for mutually beneficial goals; and
 13        WHEREAS,  the unique form of freedom and free enterprise system enjoyed by
 14    Americans, provided for in the United States Constitution and  Declaration  of
 15    Independence,  is now being threatened by the North American Free Trade Agree-
 16    ment (NAFTA) between the United States and foreign countries; and

These are two contradictory statements.  The PNWER is a cross-border, regional, economic planning authority.  It is intellectually dishonest to include both statements in a memorial.  Either you support the sovereignty of the United States and the freedom and free enterprise system provided by the Constitution;  or you support the communist system of regionalism, economic  planning by an invisible, elite group of appointees (aka ‘soviets’),  and the devolution of your own governing authority - state government. 


Over the past years, I’ve watched as time and time again, compromises are made that keep the ball moving down the court towards the dissolution of our nation.  Each time a deal is cut, it cuts away a piece of the fabric of America - what it once was.  And you all can stand up and pledge allegiance with your hand over your heart, and sing the Star Spangled Banner and wave the flag,  but with each compromise - with each cut, your actions betray your true heart.     

Invincible ignorance is easy.  Any spineless coward can claim, ‘see no evil, hear no evil’.  It takes courage, fortitude and strength of will to draw the line in the sand - saying, ‘No More’.  This is costing more than I’m willing to pay.  And it is my fervent hope and prayer that the members of the Idaho State Legislature draw that line in the sand and say, ‘No More! No More!’  -   America is worth saving; and I’m willing to stand tall as my ancestors did before me to defeat this scourge that is upon us.

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." -- Samuel Adams
