Federalist 58 by James Madison. 1. Under the proposed Constitution whose interests were represented by the U.S. Senate? Is it so today? If not, how might it be remedied & by what means? 2. How did the Constitution provide for updating representation in Congress? 3. Madison credits the U.S Constitution with assigning the greatest power, that of the “purse strings” to the U.S. House. In your opinion, how might the House assert that power to reduce the size & cost of government today? 4. Explain in your own words Madison’s warning against too many men serving in the House. How might his warning be applied today as calls abound for a more direct democracy & for scrapping the electoral college system? 5. Is democracy the form of government our Founders gave us or was it a republican form? Explain the difference.

The John Birch Society and The New American magazine are partnering with the 10th Amendment Center and many others to bring you the Nullify Now! Tour, a multi-city tour to educate and activate in support of massive state resistance to unconstitutional federal laws, regulations and mandates.

Each event will have a JBS speaker, will be covered by The New American, and will have a table manned by local members, volunteers and staff. The 10th Amendment Center has written the following promotional piece that we hope you will consider. If you’re able, please attend. The first event will be in Fort Worth, Texas, Saturday, Sept. 4. Hundreds are expected and the promotion below offers a special ticket price of only $10.00. Oklahoma State Representative Charles Key will be speaking on behalf of The John Birch Society.

Thank you!

_________________________________

For more than a century, We the People have been marching on D.C. in the hopes that federal politicians would see the light and limit federal power. We have been suing in federal courts in the hopes that federal judges would limitfederal power. We keep “voting the bums out.” But every federal election cycle we end up with new bums that expand federal power!

Asking, demanding, hoping – that the federal government will limit its own power – just doesn’t work. So why not try something new? Nullify Now!

The John Birch Society is proud to be sponsoring Nullify Now! – a multi-city tour to educate and activate in support of massive state resistance to unconstitutional federal laws, regulations and mandates.

WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO GET TICKETS NOW! – starting at just $10.00!

$10. This week only, General Admission ticket prices are about the price of a movie!

Thomas Jefferson wrote that when the federal government “assumes undelegated powers…” a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy. NULLIFICATION – has a long history in the American tradition. It is happening across the country RIGHT NOW. And YOU can help this growing movement go mainstream.

How? Attend Nullify Now! – our multi-city tour to educate and activate in support of massive state resistance to unconstitutional federal laws, regulations and mandates.

Ten bucks – if you act right now. We’re launching the tour in less than two weeks in Ft Worth, Texas, and while hundreds of people have already confirmed attendance in our various locations, we want to send a message – and full houses in support of the 10thamendment, the constitution and your liberty – will tell not only the media, but your state legislators too – that you want action now.

The time to get your Nullify Now! tickets is not next month. It’s not next week. Today. Not Tomorrow. Now.

Your Help – joining us now – will make the tour a huge success – and will allow us to expand and bring these events to more cities soon! (see below for our announcement on a new location already!)

So while it might be important to call, petition, demand, march, sue and vote bums out, because they’re all bums, there’s much more we’re supposed to do. When the federal government violates your rights, you’re not supposed to wait four years for new politicians in the hope that they’ll fix it. You’re not supposed to wait two, or four, or more years for some black-robed judge to pronounce that they’ve violated your rights. You are supposed to resist those violations of your liberty as they happen – and it is your state’s solemn duty to do the same.
