Sen John Stevens Is a Coward And A Traitor To The 2nd Amendment

Stevens-traitor

STOP Sen Stevens From Voting For Obama's Gun Control Next Week!!!

Newly elected State Senator John Stevens is a TRAITOR to the 2nd Amendment and is doing Governor Bill Haslam's grunt work to bring Obama gun control to TN.

Yesterday State Senator John Stevens voted AGAINST SB250 which would force the TN government to arrest any federal official who tried to institute Obama's gun control here in Tennessee. Senator Stevens claims to be a proponent of the 2nd Amendment, but really he is only talk. Senator Stevens said he might vote for it but then caved to pressure from Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey and Senator Kelsey after they "bribed" or bullied him to change his vote yesterday; he is a coward.  Senator Stevens will tell you that he is committed to the 2nd Amendment, but yet he votes against it as you can clearly see in this video:


http://youtu.be/Vbcm5Uy0iTc?t=18m21s

The bill will come for another vote very soon, and when it does, we must pressure him to change his vote and instead vote FOR SB250!!!

It is CRITICAL that you call, and e-mail him, and tell him that he had better vote for SB250 or else he will face the political consequences (perhaps even getting thrown out of office).

CALL SENATOR STEVENS RIGHT NOW AND TELL HIM TO VOTE YES ON SB250 TO STOP OBAMA's GUN CONTROL IN TN!!!

URGENT – Tell us if your candidate will stop Obamacare from coming to TN?


Ask YOUR
legislative candidate if they will stop Obamacare from coming to Tennessee?

We need YOUR help. We need YOU to ask your legislative candidates if they support or oppose Obamacare in Tennessee; instructions are below...

There will be a move in the first week of January 2013 to stop Obamacare from coming to Tennessee!

We don't yet know which legislators support Obamacare and which ones oppose Obamacare but we do know that Governor Haslam has indicated he supports moving "forward" to bring Obamacare to Tennessee.

It is CRITICAL that you call or e-mail your TN legislative candidates that are on the ballot URGENTLY and ask them two very simple questions:

1- Will you oppose an expansion of Medicaid spending at the state level that is described in Obamacare? (more info)

2 - Will you oppose an Obamacare Insurance Exchange in Tennessee being run by either the state or federal government? (more info)

If possible, record the conversation (it's legal in TN) and send us a copy of what they say to action@TNCampaignForLiberty.org

Click on this link below for a list of most state legislative candidates on the ballot and their contact information:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AhXovIjOcdYIdFpWeWNQN09TTzRvanJhYUlpQVNlZnc

Contact your legislative candidate TODAY and ask them the two very simple questions listed above! If you can, please report back to us their answers: action@TNCampaignForLiberty.org

Here are the responses from the candidates

Haslam Moving Forward With Obamacare In TN

 

Governor Bill Haslam is moving forward with plans to build an Obamacare Insurance Exchange in TN!

In this video last week Gov Haslam discusses the process of bringing Obamacare to Tennessee, but many of the phrases he uses are political "codewords". Make no mistake, plans are in place, and efforts are already underway to sneak Obamacare into the backdoor of Tennessee. Political experts know this in part because the Governor doesn't outright and immediately reject the idea of Obamacare in Tennessee giving him wiggle room later on. The Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey and Speaker Beth Harwell are both working together behind the scenes on this effort too.

Here is the link to the video, notice Governor Haslam's smirk when he answers the question (many may remember Bill Clinton had a similar smirk)-

http://youtu.be/2xUAZ_xZ7yY

The fact is that if the TN Government doesn't expand Medicaid, then the Feds are powerless to push Obamacare onto the state the Supreme Court has declared. The Supreme Court has also ruled that if the state government doesn't implement an Obamacare Insurance Exchange, then the Feds are effectively powerless to do so.

The TN establishment already tried it once earlier this year and were quickly shut down by people just like you who called and demanded the bill be withdrawn.

We can stop Obamacare from slithering into Tennessee, but ONLY if you tell them "NO"!

It is CRITICAL that you call and e-mail the following politicians and DEMAND that they reject an Obamacare Insurance Exchange as well as a Medicaid spending expansion in Tennessee!!!

TN Republicans to give Obama YOUR healthcare records! …. (unless you stop them)

Republicans in the Tennessee legislature are about to give Obama access to your healthcare records!

The Tennessee Senate already voted unanimously to give Obama and the federal bureaucracy access to the state-wide prescription database WITHOUT A WARRANT** -- This means Obama and the Feds will know every prescription you are taking and can glean almost any information about your health!

You CAN stop the TN Republican establishment from handing over your records to Obama and the Feds, but you MUST ACT NOW before it comes to a vote in the State House on Wednesday May 25th!

You MUST call Speaker Beth Harwell and tell her "NO to House Bill #2569"!

Obamacare killed in TN (for now…)

Thanks in large part to your e-mails The TN Campaign for Liberty has played a major role in stopping ObamaCare from creeping into Tennessee!

Earlier this week we informed you about a 'hush-hush' effort to set up an Obamacare "insurance exchange" in Tennessee. The bill was withdrawn after the sponsor, Rep. Charles Michael Sargent from Williamson County, received many e-mails and personal visits urging him to do so!

BUT DON'T REST EASY...

There are rumors that Lt. Governor Ron Ramsey, at the behest of Governor Haslam, will try and ram it down our throats AFTER the election in November when the politicians are safe from getting thrown out of office: http://wpln.org/?p=32442

Stay vigilant, there is more to come on this issue later in the year.

Obamacare slithering in the back door of TN!

Obamacare is slithering into Tennessee thru the back door!

Last week an innocent-looking bill was mysteriously and discreetly filed in the TN Assembly which attempts to lay the groundwork to bring Obamacare into Tennessee! The establishment is attempting to "sneak" Obamacare in without a fight under the guise of something called an "insurance exchange". Essentially they are trying to let Obama regulate health insurance in Tennessee behind your back.

The Governor has ALREADY accepted money from the federal government to start this program!!!

Please call the sponsor of this bill and tell them to KILL THE BILL!!! (HB-2839)
