Small Talk About Big Issues

Touching Base with Common Sense

An URGENT Appeal

January 10, 2011

To the elected Senators and Representative of the Great State of Indiana:

From the people…

We the undersigned are requesting that our elected public servants of 2011 pass legislation that will only promote Indiana and its citizens on a pathway to independence in governing itself as directed by the original intent of the Constitution as written by the founding fathers.  The undersigned hold to the same truths mentioned below and originally written and submitted by Teetor Henley on January 13, 1947, as House Concurrent Resolution No. 2.

Be it Resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring, Indiana needs no guardian and intends to have none.  We Hoosiers-like the people of our sister states-were fooled for quite a spell with the magicians’ trick that a dollar taxed out of our pockets and sent to Washington, will be bigger when it comes back to us.  We have taken a good look at said dollar.  We find that it lost weight in its journey to Washington and back.  The political brokerage of the bureaucrats has been deducted.  We have decided that there is no such thing as “federal” aid.  We know that there is no wealth to tax that is not already within the boundaries of the 50 states.

So we proposed henceforward to tax ourselves and take care of ourselves.  We are fed up with subsidies, doles and paternalism.  We are no one’s stepchild.  We have grown up.  We serve notice that we will resist Washington, D.C., adopting us.

Be it Resolved by the House of Representatives of the General Assembly of the State of Indiana, the Senate concurring:  That we respectfully petition and urge Indiana’s Congressmen/Congresswomen and Senators to vote to fetch our county courthouse and city halls back from Pennsylvania Avenue.  We want government to come home.

Resolved, further, that we call upon the legislatures of our sister states and on good citizens everywhere who believe in the basic principles of Lincoln and Jefferson to join with us, and we with them to restore the American Republic and our 50 states to the foundations built by our fathers.



What is required of you?

Copy and paste this petition to all of your contacts, friends, family, co-workers and members of your various groups.  Also, include the following message with the petition: 

Dear fellow American:

If you are in agreement with the attached petition demanding our legislature to pass legislation that will move our great state toward independence from Washington DC rule, please send an email with your name, address, phone number, state representative district number and name to Lisa Deaton at by January 8, 2011.  For the state house to look at this seriously, we will need 50-100 signatures for each state representative seat.  (Lisa will add the name and information from each email to the petition and use the email forwarded by you to show your agreement and support to the attached petition and will include each email when forwarding to the sponsoring state senator.)  Please forward to all of your contacts.  We have very little time to move this forward during the 2011 session.  Time is of the essences. 

Thank you,

Lisa Deaton
