The Open Government Project – Hear the Bills!

The House officially convenes on Monday, February 6, and their first order of business will be to adopt the rules which will govern how they operate for the session. On that day, a representative will propose the adoption of the “Open Government Rule,” which states, “A bill shall be heard and receive a vote in committee if the primary author requests it in writing; and a bill, having passed committee, shall be heard and receive a vote on the House floor if the primary author requests it in writing.”

Oklahoma Online Sales Tax Unconstitutional?

Our Oklahoma Governor and State Legislature appear to be in violation of the U.S. Constitution with their action in taxing us with online purchases.

Article I Section. 10 of the U.S. Constitution:
“No State shall, without the Consent of the Congress, lay any Imposts or Duties on Imports or Exports, except what may be absolutely necessary for executing it’s inspection Laws: and the net Produce of all Duties and Imposts, laid by any State on Imports or Exports, shall be for the Use of the Treasury of the United States; and all such Laws shall be subject to the Revision and Control of the Congress….”

Activist Alert:  Open Government Rule is a Top Priority on Feb 6th

It would seem to be a no brainer, that your representatives assigned to various committees would actually consider the bills brought before them. However, ask any activist involved for more than one cycle if you want to hear the war stories!

SQ777 Right To Farm Or Harm?   — A Rancher’s Perspective

Our Inalienable “Right To Farm” is already protected in the Oklahoma Bill of Rights: Section II-2: Inherent rights. “All persons have the inherent right to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness, and the enjoyment of the gains of their own
industry.” *3

Rights, such as the rights to our persons, property, and own industry, are solely gifts from our Loving Creator, not men. I urge my fellow farmers/ranchers and conservatives to hold on to those rights and refuse to grant them to the state via a rogue Oklahoma Supreme Court by voting No on SQ 777 (Right To Harm).

 

So Governor Fallin (Bloody Mary) vetoed legislation today which would have made it a felony for a doctor to murder an unborn baby, vetoed a bill which would have allowed property owners day or night to kill feral hogs and vetoed a gun rights bill. Bloody Mary values the lives of wild pigs over innocent unborn children.

If Oklahoma is the Reddest state in the nation, it’s not because of a Republican Super Majority it’s due to the blood of innocent unborn children!
