To all Texas elected officials:
"Don’t Mess with Texas" has been a proud motto in the Lone Star State. Now with Government controlled socialized healthcare appearing inevitable, we say "NOT IN TEXAS!" We ask our elected officials to cite the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as the reason why Texas rejects and will not accept the U.S. Government takeover of our healthcare system!
The 10th Amendment states: "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."
States’ rights, in the United States, is political doctrine advocating the strict limitation of the prerogatives of the federal government to those powers explicitly assigned to it in the Constitution of the United States, and reserving to the states all other powers not explicitly forbidden them. The doctrine of states’ rights has been the cause of bitter controversy at several periods in U.S. history.
The impending death of free market healthcare is an important issue that will again cause bitter controversy.
If the cause of defending our free market healthcare is a worthy cause, we in Texas must stand up and say: "NOT IN TEXAS".
We in Texas will not stand idly by and allow the U.S. Federal Government to eliminate our free market healthcare system by incrementally changing and ultimately replacing it with a Government controlled socialized Healthcare system.
"NOT IN TEXAS"
Where are the Texas politicians?
The Alliance of Texans against Government Controlled Healthcare is insisting upon the immediate action of all Texas Politicians. Tell the U.S. Government: Government controlled healthcare may be adopted in other states, but…NOT IN TEXAS.
Tell the U.S. Government that Government Controlled Healthcare will never be allowed in Texas. Texans still believe in individual freedom and individual responsibility.
The saving of our free market healthcare system is one of the most important tasks ever to face Texas.
When are we going to hear Texas politicians saying: "The Government Controlled Socialized Healthcare stops at the Texas border!"
The Texas citizens are waiting to hear from you. We don’t have much time. President Obama wants a healthcare bill out by August 1st.
Tell the news media loud and clear: "NOT IN TEXAS"
We hope to see and hear your stand in the media in the next days to come.
P.S. Once Texas politicians make their stand, you will see other states standing up for State’s rights. Let the Lone Star state of Texas stand first.
