IT'S TIME FOR HONEST MONEY IN GEORGIA
The Georgia Assembly has before it a piece of legislation that will financially benefit our state. Bill Greene, PhD, is the author of the Constitutional Tender Act (HB3). I've read HB3, heard Dr. Greene speak, and read his papers including the paper he presented at the MISES Institute. I believe HB3 is the single most important piece of legislation before the Georgia legislature for 2011. It forces the State of Georgia to comply with Article 1, Section 10, Clause 1 of the United States Constitution.
"No State shall enter into any Treaty, Alliance, or Confederation; grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal; coin Money; emit Bills of Credit; make any Thing but gold and silver Coin a Tender in Payment of Debts; pass any Bill of Attainder, ex post facto Law, or Law impairing the Obligation of Contracts, or grant any Title of Nobility."
Our Federal "representatives" have decided to ignore this part of the Constitution. Georgia HB3 begins returning our country to honest money by holding The Georgia State government to a verifiable and Constitutional standard.
House Bill 3 needs cosponsors and supporters to get passed the Georgia Assembly and signed into law by the Governor.
This single Bill will force the Federal Reserve from our lives thereby protecting our retirements from the ravages of inflation. Vladimir Lenin said; "The way to crush the bourgeoisie is to grind them between the millstones of taxation and inflation." Let us fight against the crush of our failing dollar.
When this Bill passes you will hear a rush of new bank accounts opening in Georgia thereby halting bank failures all over the state.
Dr. Greene tells us the most powerful way to over come the banking lobbyists in the State of Georgia, who oppose this Bill, is the number of letters we get onto the desks of our representatives. I ask that you get your family and friends, acquaintances and neighbors to write their representatives and ask that they co-sponsor this Bill.
Follow Steps 1, 2, and 3 below. Ask at least two other people to do the same.
Imagine 500,000 letters on State Representative desks between now and the opening of session in January.
The fight for liberty never ends. This is a small thing for you to do that will benefit your fellow Georgians, their families, their prosperity, and their freedom.
The mission is liberty.
The vision is now.
Follow these steps - at least to Step #4 - to give your fellow Georgians an opportunity to conduct business with honest money:
1. Find your Georgia State Representative: http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/FindLegislator.htm
2. Phone, email, and Facebook contact for your representatives: http://www.legis.state.ga.us/legis/2009_10/house/alpha.html
3. - Use the online letter here to copy and send via email: http://constitutionaltender.blogspot.com/2010/12/contact-your-ga-representative.html
- Print the HB3 Letter to Georgia Legislators and mail the letter to your representative.
Be certain to sign the letter and put your name and the name of your State Representative or State Senator on each letter.
4. Have at least two of your friends do the same. We want as many Georgians contacting their representatives as possible.
