Legislation
Enough is enough! Support Ron Paul's "American Traveller Dignity Act of 2010" (H.R. 6416) to begin turning the tables on the TSA's highhanded and unconstitutional bodily inspection procedures.
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.
In this video interview with Bill Hahn of The John Birch Society, Oklahoma State Senator Randy Brogdon warns state legislators about the new movement for a constitutional convention (Con-Con) that is sweeping the country and urges that state legislatures repeal any existing Con-Con calls that their state has passed.

Thanks to the dedication of John Birch Society members and freedom-loving statesmen in New Hampshire, the state officially rescinded all past calls for a federal Constitutional Convention after a decades-long fight to educate legislators about the dangers. Using materials such as Larry Greenley’s 2009 article for The New American magazine entitled "Dangers of a Constitutional Convention," a JBS DVD called "Beware of Article V," and a model resolution available on JBS.org, Birchers spread information and testified at committee hearings to highlight the enormous risks of a “con-con.” And this time around, they were successful.

Senators Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) and David Vitter (R-La.) introduced an amendment designed to stop the Obama Administration’s lawsuit against the State of Arizona and its taxpayers for SB 1070, the immigration bill that was recently passed and goes into effect July 29.
