Editor: A lot like Obama’s Speech, nothing to see here, move along, move along… I do hope someone with a spine challenges Mr. Ramsey. If there are any patriots interested contact me, I’ll put you in touch with the right people! Update in footnote Below¹

Statement from Tennessee Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey, R-Blountville, Dec. 8, 2015:
If the last few months have taught us anything, it is that America needs to get serious about border security — and quickly. While I would not favor an explicitly religious test, I do think it is time to place a moratorium on immigration from a long list of countries with ties to terrorism.
The United States has been the most welcoming nation in history by a large margin. But a nation without secure borders is no nation at all. We are at war with radical Islam and everyone outside of the Obama administration knows it.
It is time to seriously rethink our visa, refugee resettlement and immigration policies. It is time to press the pause button.
¹ Lt. Gov. Ramsey is not presenting any leadership in his statement. What he is saying is we should get down on our knees and beg the federal government to push the pause button. Because for so long we have allowed the federal government to bully our states the states have become nothing more than middlemen for federal government tyranny. If Mr. Ramsey is saying we should refuse to cooperate in this unconstitutional and illegal program he should have said so. Instead he echoed the words of the U.S. House Speaker inferring we should do nothing as a state but beg for very lives from our masters. What do I mean by “unconstitutional” and “Illegal”? I’m glad you asked.
The “Refugee Resettlement Program” violates Public Code 414 which prohibits allowing entrance into the United States or those known or suspected to have the intent of overthrowing our government or of poor moral character. 25% of Muslims believe it is right and proper to use force to overthrow the U.S. Government and replace it with Shariah Law. 96% of those coming through the Refugee Resettlement Program SELF IDENTIFY as Muslim, which by the way is not a RACE. It is a imposed governmental system disguised as a religion.
Show us where in the Constitution the federal government has authority to grant exceptions to legal immigration. Then show me where the federal government has the Constitutional authority do anything more than establish uniform rule of immigration? Where is it authority to enforce Immigration?
We can no longer allow the federal government to pretend it is our master. The Federal government is the creature of it’s creator, We The People and the States. The creature is never greater than it’s creator.
State that have refused to cooperate with unconstitutional acts in present day have found they have lost some federal dollars. However when it was all said and done the money it COSTS TO COMPLY WITH THESE MANDATES EQUALED OR EXCEEDED THE FEDERAL MONEY PROVIDED. Additionally that “FEDERAL MONEY” is our money. If the Federal government were doing only those thing contained in Article 1 Section 8 of our Constitution they would not be taking our money to bribe us with in the first place. There would be no need for a “Balanced Budget Amendment” because the Constitution already limits federal expenditures to specific and defined areas of authority and no more.
We would not be having the problems we are now having with the federal government if we’d made sure they stayed on the LEASH, the Constitution. In almost every situation we find the answers to our problems are contained within the Constitution. Why is it then we are always looking to the current crop of legislators to create new ones when the most thorough and perfect solutions already exist?
