|Bill Name:||SF 1289
|Requested Patriot Action:||
This bill (SF1289) has been stuck in the Judiciary Committee since 03/09/2009.
We need to put pressure on every member of this committee to get this bill out to the floor.
Have your leaders or other Patriots visit their offices at the capitol, in their districts or at their homes.
Call each member of the committee; leave messages and ask for a return call. Ask them to adopt this bill and send it to the floor
Find out when they will meet again to consider this bill and give us the date and time. We will broadcast it to every tea party & 9/12 group in Minnesota so they can be there in person.
If they refuse to send the bill to the floor, hold a rally just for them with signs bearing their names.
If they still refuse, we will create literature to pass out at the capitol and in their home districts. If they will not support the rights and powers as defined in their State Constitution and the Constitution of the United States, we will REMOVE them at the ballot box.
This committee currently has two States' Rights bills waiting for action SF1289 & SF2140. Let this committee hear your voice.

Minnesota State Constitution
We, the people of the state of Minnesota, grateful to God for our civil and religious liberty, and desiring to perpetuate its blessings and secure the same to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution
BILL OF RIGHTS
Section 1. OBJECT OF GOVERNMENT. Government is instituted for the security, benefit and protection of the people, in whom all political power is inherent, together with the right to alter, modify or reform government whenever required by the public good.
Sec. 2. RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES. No member of this state shall be disfranchised or deprived of any of the rights or privileges secured to any citizen thereof, unless by the law of the land or the judgment of his peers. There shall be neither slavery nor involuntary servitude in the state otherwise than as punishment for a crime of which the party has been convicted.
Sec. 3. LIBERTY OF THE PRESS. The liberty of the press shall forever remain inviolate, and all persons may freely speak, write and publish their sentiments on all subjects, being responsible for the abuse of such right.
Sec. 16. FREEDOM OF CONSCIENCE; NO PREFERENCE TO BE GIVEN TO ANY RELIGIOUS ESTABLISHMENT OR MODE OF WORSHIP. The enumeration of rights in this constitution shall not deny or impair others retained by and inherent in the people. The right of every man to worship God according to the dictates of his own conscience shall never be infringed; nor shall any man be compelled to attend, erect or support any place of worship, or to maintain any religious or ecclesiastical ministry, against his consent; nor shall any control of or interference with the rights of conscience be permitted, or any preference be given by law to any religious establishment or mode of worship; but the liberty of conscience hereby secured shall not be so construed as to excuse acts of licentiousness or justify practices inconsistent with the peace or safety of the state, nor shall any money be drawn from the treasury for the benefit of any religious societies or religious or theological seminaries.
