Our Constitution is trampled on once again with passage of HR 347;
US Congressional District 22 Seat Needs a Leader Who Grasps The Constitution
My fellow Americans, our Constitution was trampled on once again.
So, Congressional District 22 constituents, let’s understand what has happened under HR 347, a new law that—once again—Congressman Olson is not discussing. HR 347 is an easy read—a mere two pages—so one would surmise that a gross injustice wouldn’t have occurred.
HR 347, the Federal Restricted Buildings and Grounds Improvement Act of 2011, just recently passed, seriously encroaches on the First Amendment. It now gives the president and vice president enormous power to say anything he/she wishes while we will no longer be allowed to voice opposition without the risk of being fined and imprisoned. We have finally been silenced in speaking out against our president.
Even more astounding, HR 347 also includes disruptive opposition to any foreign dignitaries simply because they are under our ($$$$) care with Secret Service. We will no longer be allowed to impede, disrupt, act in a disorderly or disruptive conduct, obstruct or impede the ingress or egress of such foreign dignitaries, our president or vice president without serious repercussions (however it may be interpreted).
Does one remember Representative Joe Wilson who shouted “You Lie” when the president was, indeed, doing exactly that on the House floor? It could be argued that Wilson “disrupted” the president’s speech. Does one remember the speech the president of Iran gave at Columbia? Does one remember when the NAACP covered the large bronze statue of George Washington on MLK in Columbia, SC?
Was any intelligent discussion offered on the Republican-majority House floor? It is utterly deplorable that Olson voted in favor of HR 347. So, the argument Olson posed in Pearland in having a majority is invalid. If Carlson had been in office, she would have spoken out against the serious encroachment of the First Amendment and fought desperately hard to educate the House in this gross violation from being enacted.
This is why Americans are outraged and why Americans are saying that 88% of Congress needs to go—leaving only the handful of truly patriotic leaders who are fighting an uphill battle to save our great country. This is why Congressman Olson must be voted out of office—the symbolic silence, poor judgment and lack of leadership as our representative.
As Carlson continues, “We need to pray for the recovery of our nation. We are in serious trouble.” Long before Mark Levin said we are headed toward a Totalitarian regime and just recently Rush has said we are headed in that direction, Carlson was way ahead of the curve that we were grossly underestimating the direction of our country (in a Socialistic direction). It is far worse than that.
Please peruse Barbara's website at www.barbaracarlsonforuscongress.com. I promise that I will fight bitterly hard for our great nation. We must restore our values. The only way that that is possible is to elect the true fighters who dearly love our Constitution-and who understand it. Now more than ever we need term limits. The establishment must go.
