U.S. Government “In Breach of Contract”

“…the central government of the United States, by defaulting on its obligations to protect the inalienable rights of the People to life, liberty, and property, is in breach of the United States Constitution that once bound the People and the Several States to the Federal Union…” As a consequence, “… free Southerners should consider their States and the People of their States absolved of any moral obligation of obedience, deference, or loyalty to the central government of the United States. In such circumstances, we encourage Southerners to devote their primary efforts to their States and local communities in order to reconstitute a free, just, and prosperous civil society.”

For Immediate Release

Third Southern National Congress Convenes in Tennessee; Declares U.S. Government “In Breach of Contract”

Floyd, VA; November 15, 2010 – One hundred and fifty Southern men and women from fourteen Southern States gathered at Montgomery Bell State Park near Dickson, TN November 12 --14 for theTHird Southern National Congress site Third Southern National Congress (SNC).

“We have passed the test of making it to that all-important third year,” said Thomas Moore, who was re-elected Chairman. “Any new business owner can tell you, if you can make it for three years, then you’ve succeeded in establishing a viable, going concern. This was our most energetic Congress yet. We can now honestly say the SNC has proven itself to be a permanent and significant voice for the Southern People and the Southern States.”

Mark Thomey, re-elected as Vice-Chairman, said, “This session of the Congress was a great success. We’ve laid more of the groundwork necessary for the South and her people to obtain their liberty and independence.”

Delegates attended from all the Fourteen Represented States: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, and Virginia. Observers came from the North as well as the South, with some from above the Mason-Dixon Line expressing interest in forming a similar forum in their region.

The SNC is a representative assembly of citizens of the Southern States, providing an alternative, legitimate forum to express Southern grievances and advance Southern interests in a way that is no longer possible through today’s political process or the major political parties. The SNC preserves the great Southern political tradition of individual liberty and a small central government limited to its enumerated powers; and which is the creation, the servant, and the agent of the sovereign people acting through their respective States. These were the founding principles of the American Republic, but they have been consistently violated by the central government, which was designed to be the servant of the States that created it, but which has instead become their master and oppressor.

In his opening Charge to the Delegates, Chairman Thomas Moore observed, “We Southerners perhaps understand better than most Americans that the country is in deep, deep trouble. Millions of voters all across the land demonstrated this same anxiety in the recent elections. But they had no real alternatives to choose from. Americans vote for the Democrats in one cycle and the GOP in the next, and yet the oppressions, abuses, and follies of the Washington government continue without let-up. One definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over and yet expect a different result. We in the SNC are no longer willing to participate in the madness of the failed political system. We’re creating a genuine alternative, an ‘instrumentality’ which Southerners can use to forge a different destiny for ourselves and work collectively to restore liberty, justice and prosperity in the Southland.”

Chairman Moore explained that when the duly elected or appointed magistrates fail in their sworn duty to uphold the law and safeguard liberty, then any People worthy of the name will bring forth new leaders to act on their behalf. Political sovereignty resides in the whole People under a sovereign God. When oppressed, the People have the right and the duty to organize the collective means to defend their interests. Such means derive their moral authority and thus their legitimacy from a commitment to the welfare of the community. This is a constant theme in Western history and a hallowed principle in English common law. Not only does this right have support in history and politics, it also has theological sanction in the Christian doctrine of ‘interposition of the lesser magistrate.’ That is, when then higher magistrates fail in their duty or betray their public trust, lesser magistrates may step forward and interpose themselves between the People and the abuses of despotism. This is the basis on which the SNC rightfully claims its legitimacy.

The SNC’s proven model is from America’s own history – the First Continental Congress of 1774. The Crown-authorized governors and colonial assemblies were still the “legal” governments at the time. But they represented the interests of the British ruling class, not the interests of the American people. Colonial Committees of Correspondence appointed delegates to an alternative forum that would represent their interests and voice their grievances.

In keeping with its mission to speak for Southern interests, the Third Congress vigorously debated and adopted a resolution declaring that “…the central government of the United States, by defaulting on its obligations to protect the inalienable rights of the People to life, liberty, and property, is in breach of the United States Constitution that once bound the People and the Several States to the Federal Union…” As a consequence, “… free Southerners should consider their States and the People of their States absolved of any moral obligation of obedience, deference, or loyalty to the central government of the United States. In such circumstances, we encourage Southerners to devote their primary efforts to their States and local communities in order to reconstitute a free, just, and prosperous civil society.”

The full text of this historic resolution may be found on the SNC website at:

Larry Pratt speaker at Third CongressLarry Pratt, Executive Director of Gun Owners of America and a long-time champion of all of Americans’ historic liberties, was the keynote speaker at the Congressional banquet on November 13. Mr. Pratt stirred the Delegates with his address on the principles of nullification and interposition, which he proposed as the best solution to runaway, rogue government in Washington.

The Congress also elected the following officers for two-year terms:

  • Chairman – Thomas Moore of Virginia
  • Vice-Chairman – Mark Thomey of Alabama
  • Parliamentarian – David Jones of Tennessee
  • Treasurer – Bobby Johnston of Georgia
  • Chaplain – Rev. David Whitney of Maryland
  • Finance Chairman – Franklin Sanders of Tennessee

The Delegates elected one member from each State Delegation to represent their States on the SNC Board of Governors. This Board will ensure accountability of the SNC and its officers to the Represented States, and act for the full assembly between annual sessions. The Delegates established a new Budget Committee, and created an appointed position of Clerk of the Congress, who will serve the Chairman as a chief-of-staff. Chairman Moore appointed Mike Crane of Georgia as the first Clerk of the Congress.

Chairman Moore reminded the Delegates that their performance validates the SNC’s claim to serve as a legitimate voice for the Southern People. He said, “The Washington Elites believe We the People aren’t capable of, nor worthy of, self-government. They despise us Southerners in particular. But the landmark Third Congress proves them wrong. The SNC has demonstrated a far greater capacity for moral, responsible self-government than anything we see in the U.S. Congress. If the corrupt and criminal elites in Washington could be here with you today, they would have to hang their heads in shame.”

Qualifications to become a Delegate to the SNC are as follows:

· There are no restrictions based on race, creed, or sex.

· A Delegate must be a resident of one of the Fourteen Represented States.

· A Delegate must be 18 years of age on the date of the Congress attended.

· A Delegate must be willing to affirm the following: I believe that I have a duty to my home State. I believe that the Southern people are a distinct people. I believe in the right of voice, the right of preservation, and the right of recognition, for the South and her people.

Southerners of good will and good character are invited to apply to become Delegates by going to this link:

Brian Aitken's Mistake

A New Jersey man gets seven years for being a responsible gun owner.

"Sue Aitken called the police because she was worried about her son, Brian. She now lives with the guilt of knowing that her phone call is the reason Brian spent his 27th birthday in a New Jersey prison last month. If the state gets its way, he will be there for the next seven years."

The Global Debt Clock

"The history of government management of money has, except for a few short happy periods, been one of incessant fraud and deception."
-- Friedrich Hayek
Maybe I should move back to Vietnam where the debt per person is $500 versus $29K+ here........

Continue To Oppose Food Safety Legislation

Continue to Oppose Food Safety Legislation

The Senate voted to approve a cloture motion today, November 17, with a 74-25 vote, well above the 60 votes required to limit debate on S. 510. This sets a dangerous precedent and is a momentum builder for passing even more controversial legislation as the lame duck session continues. Clearly, many Republicans crossed the aisle for this very unconstitutional bill. The Food Safety Act can now be brought to the floor any day now for a final vote by the Senate. Only a simple majority will be required for passage.

The Food Safety Modernization Act, S. 510

S. 510 calls for enhanced expansion of FDA authority over small farms, ranches, and other food producers, establishes burdensome administrative requirements for large and small operations, and an arbitrary legal authority to recall “unsafe medications,” the definition of which is not clearly established. Under S. 510 more power would be granted to an unaccountable agency, hyper-regulating small producers out of business, leaving the industrial food system that currently has the highest number of food safety problems, to commandeer the marketplace.

This massive expansion of government regulation of the food industry, completely unauthorized by the Constitution, would limit the right to produce, distribute, and consume the foods of one's labors and choice. The constant refrain of "safety" is no excuse for granting practically unlimited authority to an unaccountable bureaucracy.

For more details on the specifics of the bill see our legislative alert.

If you believe food safety is best achieved at the local level, contact your senators immediately to express your opposition to such plans. Have them do everything in their power to defeat S. 510.

The Demo-gogues

"We didn't lose the election because of me. Our members do not accept that. So, I'm not looking back on this. They asked me to run, I'm running. We don't let the Republicans choose our leaders, and again, our members understand, they made me a target because I'm effective, politically and policy-wise."

--soon-to-be-former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)

"The election was no ringing endorsement of Republicans. We do not accept their version of what this election means. It's not about rejecting what President Obama has done. It didn't go fast enough to create jobs. That's what it's about."

--Nancy Pelosi


Historic defeat: "Nancy Pelosi did two things for which she will go down in history. She was an incredibly effective majority leader when, and speaker, there was an opposition president. She helped make the majority. And when she was in the majority, she was the hammer that got through President Obama's agenda and sent it to the Senate. However, that is a completely different role than what she wants to do now. For which, I think she's kind of like Winston Churchill. I mean, she accomplished historic things for the Democrats, and they should be sending her off in a blaze of glory and adjusting for this new regime."
--Fox News Sunday and NPR's Mara Liasson
("Her greatest accomplishment was that she turned the majority into the minority.")

Lee, Rubio: GOP In 'Lockstep' With Tea Party

“I think it’s a big mistake,” he said, “because the worst thing you can do in the midst of the greatest recession in a generation is to increase taxes. When you increase taxes you discourage investment, and investment is what’s necessary to increase jobs. If we increase taxes right, now we’re going to kill jobs. And we can’t afford to do that.”

Senate Republicans Pass Sweeping Earmark Ban

"Senate Republicans launched a full-scale assault on deficit spending Tuesday evening, approving an earmark ban and a flurry of other belt-tightening resolutions, while challenging Democrats to do the same."

"Senate Republicans went far beyond just banning earmarks Tuesday. Their other austerity moves:
  • They approved a resolution by Sen. Lamar Alexander placing a moratorium on “creating new unfunded mandates and new entitlement programs.” It opposes burdening state and local governments with new unfunded federal mandates, such as healthcare reform, which shifts huge costs to provide health insurance to the uninsured to state governments.
  • Another Alexander resolution was passed opposing the creation of any new entitlement programs. Federal entitlements make up 56 percent of the total budget — a percentage expected to rise steeply if Obamacare is enacted.
  • A resolution from Sen. John Cornyn supported a balanced budget amendment to the U.S. Constitution. It would require that, before each fiscal year begins, the president must submit to Congress a proposed budget “in which total federal spending does not exceed total federal revenue.”
  • Cornyn’s measure also would require a supermajority of both houses of Congress to increase any federal taxes.
  • Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison offered a resolution that all unspent stimulus funds should be canceled immediately, to avoid “saddling taxpayers with more debt.”
  • Sen. Jon Kyl proposed a resolution stating that there should be a federal hiring freeze on employees not associated with national security efforts. Kyl’s resolution points out that in the past two years the federal civilian workforce grew by 20 percent to 1.43 million.
  • According to a GOP news release, Sen. John Thune submitted a resolution calling for all non-discretionary spending to be reduced to inflation-adjusted FY 2008 levels. Republicans estimate this move alone would save about $450 billion over the next 10 years."
