The reason as to why I am running is out of concern for my country and my country men, and the direction that our nation is heading. I was also concerned at the direction that Utah is heading as well. I thought to myself what was one to do? Well the answer was and still is that we must cleanse the inner vessel if we were ever to save the Republic. After all, to preserve the nation first and foremost starts with the individual, then the local communities, then the States, and lastly the Nation. Like John Adams stated concerning our sacred US Constitution.
“Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
If we look at the State legislature for example, they are a pretty poor example of what a Constitutionally limited government is supposed to look like. In fact I’d argue that our State is quickly moving towards California, in regards to political ideology. With an average of 600 new laws being passed per year, with the proposals of California styled same gender laws, and proposed six million dollar tax incentives being offered to the NSA. My wish is to unite upon common ground and repeal any law that is in conflict with the State and Federal constitutions. To reduce taxation and to balance our own books with in this wonderful sovereign State of Utah. I could speak as to many other issues and or threats with in this State, whether it be Common Core, expansion of Medicaid part D, or any other issue that the Feds are forcing upon our free will at this current time. Which may I add; I am opposed too and have a plan for each important issue. The issues that I would like to speak to you about today is the issues of calling for a modern day constitutional convention and Nullification.
The resolution to call for one ambiguous constitutional convention call, has started right here in Utah since 2010 by representatives Ken Ivory, former representative Brad Daw, current State Senator Wayne Niederhauser, Speaker of the House Becky Lockhart, Governor Gary Herbert and others. All of which are republicans and are a part of the republican establishment in our State. All have been strong arming behind closed doors other elected representatives and senators for this Con Con (Constitutional Convention) agenda. This last year they even blocked and censored public comment on this very subject. Since 2010 they have blocked all attempts to nullify unconstitutional federal laws, such as Obamacare (ACA), and future and past unconstitutional anti-gun laws which are in conflict with the 2nd Amendment, etc. Please see both of my articles on the Con Con and the principle of Nullification on my campaign website at jasonthepatriot.com.
It was, thanks to God the almighty, that we preserved that last thread of the Constitution instead of severing it, with the stopping of the Con Con call (for now). My question to you is Why would the republican establishment work to block nullification on any future anti-gun bills last year? Why would the republican establishment block the nullification of Obamacare last year? Why would they want the feds to dictate to this Great Sovereign State of Utah what is NOT in Utah’s best interest? Why would the republican establishment work repetitively to call for one ambiguous constitutional convention call, while calling it by another name (Article V Convention)? What is their agenda? In this race for the House District 64, before I sought for the council with the Lord, I noticed that we didn’t have a good republican choice that would have a back bone to stand up to the republican establishment in this State, and the feds. The question is why? We need Independent voices on the floor of the State House. We need Honesty and Transparency. We need Traditional Moral Values.
Therefore: I commit to the unraveling of the insidious Common Core standards! I commit to showing a back bone to the Feds and our State leadership! I commit to promote a policy of nullifying unconstitutional, and therefore unlawful Federal laws and acts. I will continue to work tirelessly against any call for a constitutional convention, as well as encourage other States to rescind their calls! I commit to Stand in Defense of all individual God ordained rights, such as the right to defend ones self, property, persons and family! As well as ones right to own and control their own property! I commit to exposing corruption from within! I commit to Stand with our duly elected County Sheriffs in their efforts to stand by and defend our constitutionally recognized God ordained sacred rights! I commit to a policy of repealing any law in conflict with our State and Federal Constitutions! I commit to a policy of voting “Nay” to any law that flies in the face of our State and Federal Constitutions! I commit to being Honest and forthright! I commit to having a clear channel for those that I would represent in contacting me and voicing their concerns and opinions. In closing lets heed to the wise counsel given by the illustrious George Washington (father of these States united) given Nov. 19th 1794.
“Let us unite, therefore, in imploring the Supreme Ruler of nations, to spread his holy protection over these United States; to turn the machinations of the wicked to the confirming of our constitution; to enable us at all times to root out internal sedition, and put invasion to flight; to perpetuate to our country that prosperity, which his goodness has already conferred, and to verify the anticipation of this government being a safeguard to human rights.”
