“The following statement by Attorney James Leuenberger is very bold. It is also 100% factual. When the American people start electing men who possess the following convictions, our nation will have the opportunity to correct the completely misguided course it is on. Until then, our nation will continue on its path to destruction.” –Edward Snook, Editor-in-Chief, US~Observer
My Fellow Oregonians,
I am running for the U.S. Senate because the federal government has completely abandoned the Supreme Law of Our Land. The US Constitution is the grant of power for the federal government and it contains the limits of power for the federal and state governments.
1. The federal government is not authorized to own land except for the District of Columbia and,
“Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards and other needful Buildings.” – US Constitution Article I, §8, Clause 17.
The federal government should divest itself of all Oregon land that is not being used for Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards and other needful buildings. The federal government should convey all of its land in Oregon not being used for purposes permitted by the US Constitution to the State of Oregon without compensation, as it was taken unlawfully.
2. All federal statutes that appear to restrict or make illegal the keeping or bearing of arms are unconstitutional and are therefore void. They should be repealed. The 2nd Amendment to the Constitution of the United States clearly uses the words “shall not be infringed.” This statement literally means shall not approach, or shall not restrict.
3. US Constitution Article I, §8 is the source of Congressional authority. All laws that purport to create legislation Congress was not authorized to create are unconstitutional and void. They should be repealed. By the same token, Article I, §8, Clause 1 says, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States….” This means the Congress alone has the power to create laws. This means that neither the Executive (the President and administrative agencies) nor the Judiciary has lawful power to create laws.
4. US Constitution Article I, §8, Clause 4 says that Congress is “to establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization….” It is Congress, not the Executive or the Judiciary, that is to determine who and how people can become citizens of the United States.
5. We, the people, not the government (federal or state), are sovereign. The President of the United States is not sovereign. Congress is not sovereign. Judges and courts are not sovereigns. When officials act without authority, they should be made to reimburse their victims for the damages they cause. Statutes and judicial rulings to the contrary should be repealed.
6. Congress should provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress. Every adult man and woman who does not have conscientious objection to military service should be organized, armed, and disciplined in the Militias of their respective states.
7. The only federal court that is required by the US Constitution is the Supreme Court. Congress should give serious consideration to eliminating all federal courts inferior to the Supreme Court.
8. The watch words before any federal official or group of federal officials act should and must be, “by what authority?” If the act is not authorized by the US Constitution or constitutionally promulgated law, it should not be done.
9. US Constitution Amendment IX says, “The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” The federal and state courts should stop ignoring this amendment.
10. US Constitution Amendment X says, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.” The federal and state courts should stop ignoring this amendment.
Oregon, a vote for me is a vote for the Constitution.
