Jake Towne: Money Bomb Results and The Job of a U.S. RepresentativeSubmitted by legalizeliberty on Tue, 03/30/2010 - 14:23
Last Friday to a packed room at a Liberty Bell Center of Constitutional Studies meeting, I had a very interactive discussion with the attendees on the job of a U.S. Congressman per the Constitution of the United States.
Below are the notes in outline fashion from the talk, arranged by topic with references. We spent the most time on the "War" and "Economic Powers" sections as these impact current events the most. I am available to review the below with any other local group, and also have an online lesson plan to teach the basics of the Constitution, which are probably a good prerequisite for this talk.
The United States Constitution was written under the principle of "positive grant." This means the federal government is authorized to exercise only the powers which are specifically given to it by the Constitution, and nothing more.
I wanted to send a thank you to all donors who contributed to yesterday's STOP THE WARS grassroots money bomb yesterday. 35 donors contributed $1,335.09 yesterday. The event was held to help finish the March 31st quarterly financial reporting cycle strong, and feel free to chip in by hitting the button below!!
