A Choice to make things better

December 30, 2009

Glen Bradley is running in NC House District 49 against Lucy T. Allen for NC State House. Glen is a Constitutionalist first and foremost, and his primary plan is to move the legislature towards asserting the right of State Sovereignty through the 10th Amendment, and to protect our citizens from the unconstitutional overreach of our Federal Government.
  • State Sovereignty
Glen Bradley was responsible in 2009 for drawing the entire NC Republican Party into supporting H849, the bill declaring NC State Sovereignty according to the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution. Establishment politics as usual prevented that bill from arriving on the House floor for a vote, but Glen will go into the State House and change that.
  • Firearms Freedom, Healthcare Freedom
Glen Bradley is responsible for the drafting of, and for the winning of sponsorship for the North Carolina Firearms Freedom Act, to be introduced by David Lewis during 2010. Glen seeks in 2011 to introduce for himself the North Carolina Healthcare Freedom Act, which will declare that the individual mandate is both extra-Constitutional and unconstitutional under the 10th Amendment to the US Constitution, and which Act will compel the Governor to employ every available means of financial, political, enforcement, and martial asset to bear within the State of North Carolina to block and prevent Federal interference from demanding or establishing or enforcing an individual mandate amongst the citizens of the State of North Carolina.
  • Returning power to the People
North Carolina will reserve all those powers of government available to us in our own Constitution to our State according to the 10th Amendment, and on your behalf, North Carolina will reserve to her citizens all those powers not enumerated in the US nor in the NC Constitutions, according to the 9th and the 10th Amendments to the US Constitution.
  • Constitutionalist Reform
Glen will work to repeal our State’s ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment, to amend the 14th Amendment section 1 to establish State citizenship as primary and jurisdictional, and will work with the people and with the assembly of NC to repeal or reform the 17th Amendment in order to re-establish the State’s seniority over the Federal Government as our Founders intended.

We need your help:

Glen Bradley will do all of these things, but he needs your help. Glen Bradley is running against a country-club Democrat with fingers in every pie. She will, without effort, be able to raise the average $100,000 for an average victorious State House campaign in North Carolina. If we, the Constitutionalist patriots of North Carolina are going to take back our State and our nation for We the people, then we must stand up against the country-club establishment and show ourselves stronger, and more numerous than her big business and special interest backers. We need to raise $100,000 to to plant the seed that will restore the Constitutional order, and that seed is the election of Glen Bradley to the NC State Assembly.
  • 10,000 Tens for Glen in 2010
Are there not 1000 patriots in North Carolina who would each see $100 to change the way our State and our Nation does business? If there are only 10,000 Tea Party Patriots in the whole State who will give $10, then this campaign will be completely financed. Where are the patriots and the Tea Partiers who demand that we restore the Constitutional order and reject the old guard and the establishment order? It is time to step up and help put your fellow Tea Partier and Constitutionalist into the State House.
  • State Redistricting
It is critical to remember that the issues of our State are even more important than the issues of our nation. The State House elected in 2010 will be responsible for redistricting. For nearly a century, North Carolina has been gerrymandered — as recent confirmed by the United States Supreme Court — which leads to a condition where the citizens of North Carolina are not fairly represented. Glen believes that our House and Congressional districts should reflect the local and geographical communities which they contain. Mis-shaping our districts in order to influence the sort of people they will elect, is a kind of establishment ‘loading the dice’ against the North Carolina citizens. We can only be fairly represented when our districts are fairly drawn. Glen will stand up and fight on the House floor for fair, community based redistricting, that will give the voters the largest voice we have ever had to demand change, when our representatives misbehave.
  • Jobs and the Economy

North Carolina can easily overcome the economic morass that has gripped our nation by encouraging innovation and competition in our State specifically. We must remove the barriers to entry faced by those inventors and innovators that will compel North Carolina into more perfect future markets. This will consequentially create many more jobs in NC, and well-paying jobs, than in the other 49 States. We can attract industry by becoming a 10th Amendment shelter for the free market, encourage competition by reducing the red tape that stymies competition, and produce less expensive, superior quality goods in North Carolina while providing our citizens more high-paying jobs than can be had in the rest of the nation.

Saving our State, and Restoring the Republic:

North Carolina can become the model for national recovery which the other States will emulate. This starts with electing Glen Bradley to the North Carolina State House in 2010.

Visit http://nchouse2010.glenbradley.net/ for more information and to donate to the campaign. Visit http://nchouse49.ning.com/ to volunteer with the Campaign. WE are the hope that we have been looking for, and only WE can create the change that we seek. Even now, in our nations darkest hours we know that it is always darkest before the dawn. In this present crisis we have been given an opportunity to turn the tide and restore the Constitutional order. Will you stand with us and make this happen?

The whole scoop on the Greensboro NC Cap&Trade event

August 18, 2009

This event has apparently been put together by conservatives, and if all the pre-announcement gossip is true, then Kay Hagan is part of it.  I don’t see her in the event announcements, so maybe FreedomWorks was trying to get her to participate and she backed out? I’m just speculating here.

In any case, Kay Hagan is unconfirmed as of now, since FreedomWorks is not announcing her, but there will apparently be a large conservative energy rally sponsored by Dick Armey’s FreedomWorks.  They are even offering free hot dogs and hamburgers for all: http://bit.ly/3aQsDB

I need to know where Senator Kay Hagan fits into this before I decide on FreedomWorks for the time being.

Energy Rally – Thursday, August 20th, Greensboro Coliseum
The Energy Rally Starts at 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm on Thursday, August 20th

Join us for food and great entertainment.
Multiple speakers will address this issue. Scheduled speakers: Nathan Tabor, Businessman; Valerie White, NCFRW President

Climate Change Legislation being considered in Washington will cause huge economic pain and produce little environmental gain Legislation approved by the House of Representatives will cost 2 million American jobs, raise gasoline and diesel prices up to $4 per gallon, make American businesses less able to compete globally, and reduce America’s energy security. The U.S. Senate will soon take up climate/energy/tax legislation. Let our U.S. Senators know they need to “get it right” and not make the same mistakes as the House. Energy Citizens are people from all walks of life-workers in industry, truckers, farmers, homemakers, small business owners-whose daily lives and ability to carry on business depend on affordable energy and a healthy economic environment that secures today’s jobs and provides employment opportunities for a growing population.

Help Oppose Cap and Trade – Attend the Energy Citizen’s Rally in Greensboro!

As I’m sure you’ve seen, President Obama’s healthcare reform campaign has been dominating the airwaves and town hall meetings around the country.  It cannot be underestimated how important it is to stop this big government scheme.

But it is equally important that we don’t let up pressure against another threat: Cap and Trade.  More accurately called “Cap and Tax” – this legislation has already passed the House and will be in the hands of the Senate when they come back from the August Recess in September.  Please help spread the word about the Cap and Tax plot by attending the Energy Citizens’ Rally in Greensboro, on August 20 at the Greensboro Coliseum.  Doors open at 11:30 am and there will be hamburgers and hot dogs for all.

This will be a great opportunity to learn more about how proposed cap and trade legislation, like the Waxman-Markey bill which recently passed the U.S. House of Representatives, could impact your wallet and what you can do about it.  We know that if something like Waxman-Markey passes out of the Senate, and the President signs it into law it means lost jobs and a massive new energy tax for American consumers – just when our economy can afford it least!

You can learn more about the Cap and Tax scheme as part of FreedomWorks’ August Recess Call to Action.  Be sure to download the action kit and check out the map for town halls and citizen action rallies (in green) near you.  Click “Page 2”  to see more – there are too many to fit on one page.

Finally, if you haven’t already, please be sure to TAKE ACTION and tell your legislators to oppose cap and trade schemes like Waxman-Markey.  Thank you for your ongoing vigilance on this important issue.

Freedom Acts Five Year Plan

August 4, 2009

Citizens of North Carolina, and of the Unites States.  I have a plan to restore the Constitutional Order.  It begins with a series of 5 acts at State Level, followed by a similar series of 5 Acts at the Federal level.  We, the conservatives of North Carolina have a plan that is less expensive, and more fiscally sound going forward, and covers more topics and citizens than the Democrats plan.

Glen Bradley, being elected GOP 1st Vice Chairman of Franklin County NC

Vote Glen Bradley for State House d49 and together we will rebuild the public trust, and restore the republic.  Help me pass the following five Acts:


Projected outset: Summer, 2011 — Projected outset means the furthest out date expected for passage

Internal North Carolina Energy Policy is the business of North Carolina alone. Any energy transaction which originates and terminates within the borders and provinces of the State of North Carolina, do not fall under Federal Regulation.

Furthermore, Federal governmental interference in energy policy for transactions which begin and terminate within North Carolina is declared by this assembly to be a violation of the 10th Amendment reserved powers, describing powers reserved to the States; therefore evoking the penalties of law, whether (by case being) civil or criminal justice proceeding.


Projected outset: Winter, 2012

ObamaRaleighNorth Carolina Citizens have a right to freely choose their own healthcare regardless of what plans may be enacted over them. One of the primary components of being a free people is the right to self ownership in our persons and in our bodies, and healthcare is a basic component of this concept.

Make it illegal by North Carolina State law, punishable by prison, for any government employed bureaucrat at any level to suggest care decisions which can only be left between patient and doctor.

Establish a Health Savings Account for every legal NC citizen with a $500 seed, and enable pre-tax income withholding into these stabilized accounts, which mature to cash in 7 years. Enable direct HSA-to-Doctor and HSA-to-Pharmacist debits. Incentivize catastrophic, disaster and long term health insurance plans to account for what the individual health accounts cannot.

Continue to have persons and companies co-fund pretax health withholdings; and allow the INDIVIDUAL USER to proportion that revenue three ways. 0-100% Catastrophic or traditional health insurance. 0-100% deposit into Health Savings Account. 0-100% Contribution to public care.

User decides, “I want to debit 4%, and the company will match me that far so the revenue stream is 4% of my gross income times 2. Given that stream, I want 35% to go to catastrophic and long term care, 55% into my Healthcare Account, and 10% into the public welfare.”

Create a system of 100% /voluntary/ income withholding, paying into a “Public Care” plan to augment the poor’s lack of disaster coverage and smaller HSA accounts. Allow every NC citizen to choose an amount of voluntary withholding for the public plan. Zero to 100.

This “public plan” is really a blanket insurance policy for the uninsured, designed primarily to reduce the impact to hospitals for hosting free clinics. The public in general is asked to make a purely voluntary contribution, which funds collected state-wide are then paid out in direct proportion per capita coverage, to the hospitals having hosted free clinics.

The system is never really expected to pay 100% of cost, but if a hospital’s costs to operate a free clinic are recouped to 80% on account of the voluntary public contributions, then they will certainly be more inclined to have them.


Projected outset: Summer, 2012

A NC-tweaked clone of the Montana Firearms Freedom Act, plus enforcement power. Efforts on going include a preliminary bill text here: http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=102783118574


Projected outset: Spring, 2013

As H849 currently in the NC House, plus enforcement power.


Projected outset: Spring, 2014

States that any powers not Constitutionally reserved to the Federal Government or to the States respectively, is reserved to the people, and subject to popular assent. Any and all powers sought by the government, being Federal or State governments not specifically spelled out as authorized in the State or US Constitutions, will be subject to a public caucus and a ballot initiative whether to grant the government permission to set policy. This CONDITIONAL agreement to allow government action in areas not spelled out in the Constitution is based on the Constitutional principle of RESERVED POWERS. If the people choose to reserve the power to do Xyz, then the government will not be allowed power over that domain. If the people choose to release the power to do Xyz, then the government will be granted authority over it.

This sort of permission can, in extreme cases, be revoked and restored and revoked and restored again etc. over time. As long as it is caucused and placed on a ballot initiative coincident with a general election.

This gives the People direct power to permit and revoke powers (reserving of not reserving them unto them selves) of the Federal and State governments. All duties spelled out in the Constitution, of course, are not subject to assent, but rather to the traditional amendment process.

Act will recognize the fundamental concept of citizen sovereignty.

Act will recognize the purpose of the Constitutional Republic, to protect the ultimate minority of the individual.

Act will authorize enforcement measures to penalize/prosecute those who as lawmakers willfully oppose or seek to ‘work-around’ or otherwise negate the provisions of 9th Amendment law.

NC HealthCare Freedom Act — Feedback saught

July 25, 2009

Looking for feedback on this one:

Thoughts on a kind of “patient’s bill of rights” seeking to reform NC Health-care in light of the coming federal universal healthcare project.  The following points are items I believe such an act should include.  Please contribute your own ideas prolifically. 😎

North Carolina State Healthcare Freedom Act

Illegal per NC State Law for any employee of State or Federal government to suggest healthcare decisions.

Guarantees the right of NC Citizens to associate with the healthcare provider of their choice.

Mandates by law, that no covered procedure may ever be denied, given a licensed physician determining the procedure ‘appropriate.’

Authorizes tax-free healthcare savings accounts for every NC Citizen, and allows payroll deductions for said accounts.  Establishes a “direct to Doctor” deduction of HSA funds at point of purchase.

Breaks the Drug Lobby by deregulating provider and pharmacist access and provision of medicine, while maintaining safety increasing the penalties for negligence and fraud.

Authorizes group and industry plans, and allows the purchase of plans from out of state.

ObamaCare storms the Triangle!

July 25, 2009

Fast on the heels of a NC State 7th Senate District Town Hall meeting to promote ObamaCare, with highly favorable press coverage, now we have President Obama coming to Raleigh on Wednesday to promote ObamaCare.

I do not even know the Raleigh protest permit process, but I am doing everything I can to learn what it is so that I can at least try to attain one.  I doubt, however, that even in the best of circumstances 48 hours is enough turnaround.  However, we are working with all of the notice that WE received, and whether we are able to attain a permit from Raleigh or not in the brief two days we have to do so, and without specifying a time or a place; the people of America and of north Carolina have a clear First Amendment right to demonstrate opposition to President Obama’s healthcare plan when Obama comes into town, short notice or otherwise.

Short notice and no itinerary should not become an excuse for denying Americans their First Amendment guarantee.

Thursday July 23, Henderson North Carolina

Democratic Senator Doug Berger and Democratic Representative Lucy Allen held a Town Hall on Wednesday to rally the North Carolina public in favor of ObamaCare.  Their purpose was to rally citizens to call their congressmen and Senators to support ObamaCare. They stated up front that this was one of the most heavily attened events they had held.  They did not count on the heavy presence of polite opposition.

Friday July 24, Henderson North Carolina

The Henderson Daily Dispatch, Henderson’s paper of record, ran an article on the ObamaCare Town Hall in Henderson, and had extraordinarily lopsided coverage, as though the article were written by the producers of the event.  I copied excerpts of their story below, and my responding letter to their editor (not yet sent).  I do wonder if the press in every county touched by Doug Berger and Lucy Allen might want to hear about this?

Meeting promotes healthcare option – Crowd urged to contact representatives in support of Obama’s plan

Jul 24, 2009

Local State Democratic legislators and area residents spoke Thursday night at a 7th Senatorial District Town Hall meeting in Henderson.

The session promoted President Barack Obama’s proposed public healthcare option that is being debated in Congress.
Berger wanted to hear “how we can effectively advocate for (the) U.S. Congress to expand health care coverage.”

The coalition that Searing has led since 1997 advocates health care reforms that address the needs of the uninsured and the under-insured.

It seeks more comprehensive and effective public health care programs on behalf of average consumers in the private market.
Health care costs are out of control, he said. “They have doubled in the last 10 years, and are expected to do the same without change over the next 10.”

Searing encouraged people to call their representatives in Congress toll free at 1-800- 828-0498 and ask them to support health reform.

News is broken by ABC 11 and followed by the N&O that President Obama is coming into Raleigh on Wednesday, July 29th, to promote ObamaCare.  Times and locations have not been announced.  Glen Bradley seeks Raleigh protest permit process to demonstrate opposition to ObamaCare

Saturday July 25, Henderson North Carolina


To the Editor, Henderson Daily Dispatch


On Jul 24, 2009, Al Wheless of the Henderson Daily Dispatch published the following: “Meeting promotes healthcare option — Crowd urged to contact representatives in support of Obama’s plan”

A citizen responds:

I am writing in response to the Al Wheless coverage of the public healthcare Town Hall in Henderson, NC.

I notice your reporter’s article didn’t cover that there was a significant presence of opposition: the home health care groups were there on account of Senator Berger, and the conservatives were there to oppose nationalized healthcare.  It should be relevant that the entire Q&A period provided was dominated by opposition, and that 1/3 of the story-time was composed of home healthcare people complaining that their funding had been taken away.  These people simply did not mention Senator Berger’s vote to de-fund them by name, although it was referred to again and again.

Perhaps your reporter did not notice the opposition, because we were all basically polite?  do we have to become rude before we actually get noticed?  Maybe that’s why so many people think conservatives are rude, because that’s the only way we can get press coverage – so that maybe rude conservatives are the only ones you let the people see?  Or perhaps this just escaped Mr Wheless’ rapier observation as a reporter.

I, for one, was sitting next to the Vance County GOP Chairman, who raised a question about the Congress and some government employees being given a superior taxpayer funded health coverage plan beyond and above the inferior taxpayer funded public option; and also I asked Senator Berger and Representative Allen if they would sponsor a North Carolina Healthcare Freedom Act, which would among other things, make it illegal under NC State Law for ANY government bureaucrat to suggest care decisions.

I find the pattern interesting, where the left says “the right does not have a plan, all they do is complain.”  But then here we find in the press, that only our complaints get reported, and never our plans.  So I can certainly understand why people would have this false impression that we have no plan, and I can even empathize with Al Wheless – given that this reporting problem is apparently industry-wide amongst the press.  After all, when in Rome, right?

A reporter, however, should report the news present.  A reporter should not just cherry pick the things they like out of a story when they want to promote a group or event, and a reporter should not just cherry pick the things they hate out of a story in order to demonize a group or an event.  The citizen relies on the press for a straight and unbiased telling and description of events.  When you only report half the story — and especially regarding something as big and important as the President’s healthcare plan — it leads me to question whether I can rely on you for news at all.

Please reassure me that efforts will be made to balance coverage of events like this one going forward.  Thank you so much!

Proposed text for 2009 NC FFA

July 15, 2009

2009 North Carolina State Assembly





Section 1. Short title. [Sections 1 through 6] may be cited as the “North Carolina Firearms Freedom Act”.

Section 2. Declarations of authority. The legislature declares that the authority for [sections 1 through 6] is the following:

(1) The 10th amendment to the United States constitution guarantees to the states and their people all powers not granted to the federal government elsewhere in the constitution and reserves to the state and people of North Carolina certain powers as they were understood at the time that North Carolina adopted the Constitution in November 1789. The guaranty of those powers is a matter of contract between the state and people of North Carolina and the United States whereupon North Carolina was the first state to ratify following the inclusion of a Bill of Rights, without which it would not have been adopted, and the violation of said amendments usurps the principles whereupon North Carolina joined the Union on November 21, 1789.

(2) The ninth amendment to the United States constitution guarantees to the people rights not granted in the constitution and reserves to the people of North Carolina certain rights as they were understood at the time that North Carolina adopted the Constitution in 1789. The guaranty of those rights is a matter of contract between the state and people of North Carolina and the United States as of the time that the Constitution of the United States was agreed upon and adopted by North Carolina in 1789.

(3) The regulation of intrastate commerce is vested in the states under the 9th and 10th amendments to the United States constitution, particularly if not expressly preempted by federal law. Congress has not expressly preempted state regulation of intrastate commerce pertaining to the manufacture on an intrastate basis of firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition.

(4) The second amendment to the United States constitution reserves to the people the right to keep and bear arms as that right was understood at the time that North Carolina ratified the Constitution in 1789, and the guaranty of the right is a matter of contract between the state and people of North Carolina and the United States as of the time that the US Constitution and Bill of Rights was agreed upon and adopted by North Carolina in 1789.

(5) Article I, section 30, of the North Carolina Constitution and Declaration of Rights clearly secures to North Carolina citizens, and prohibits government interference with, the right of individual North Carolina citizens to keep and bear arms. To wit, “the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; and, as standing armies in time of peace are dangerous to liberty, they shall not be maintained, and the military shall be kept under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.”  This constitutional protection is unchanged from the original North Carolina constitution, which was approved by congress and the people of North Carolina, and the right exists as it was understood at the time that the Constitution of the United States was agreed upon and ratified by North Carolina in 1789.

(6) The Federalist Papers (specifically Madison #46 and Hamilton #29) as well as the entire history of the ratification of the Second Amendment reveals, that the right to bear arms was primarily intended as the sole means of defense, and as a hedge against the potential tyranny of an overreaching Federal Government.

(7) According to the natural law of logic, a right intentionally enumerated in both the Constitution of the United States and within the North Carolina State Constitution specifically as a hedge against the potential tyranny of an overreaching Federal Government, should not in any way be defined by nor regulated from the very same Federal Government being guarded.

Section 3. Definitions. As used in [sections 1 through 6], the following definitions apply:

(1) “Borders of North Carolina” means the boundaries of North Carolina described in the North Carolina constitution.

(2) “Firearms accessories” means items that are used in conjunction with or mounted upon a firearm but are not essential to the basic function of a firearm, including but not limited to telescopic or laser sights, magazines, flash or sound suppressors, folding or aftermarket stocks and grips, speedloaders, ammunition carriers, and lights for target illumination.

(3) “Generic and insignificant parts” includes but is not limited to springs, screws, nuts, and pins.

(4) “Manufactured” means that a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition has been created from basic materials for functional usefulness, including but not limited to forging, casting, machining, or other processes for working materials.

Section 4. Prohibitions. A personal firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured commercially or privately in North Carolina and that remains within the borders of North Carolina is not subject to federal law or federal regulation, including registration, under the authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce. It is declared by the legislature that those items have not traveled in interstate commerce. This section applies to a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition that is manufactured in North Carolina from basic materials and that can be manufactured without the inclusion of any significant parts imported from another state. Generic and insignificant parts that have other manufacturing or consumer product applications are not firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition, and their importation into North Carolina and incorporation into a firearm, a firearm accessory, or ammunition manufactured in North Carolina does not subject the firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition to federal regulation. It is declared by the legislature that basic materials, such as unmachined steel and unshaped wood, are not firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition and are not subject to congressional authority to regulate firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition under interstate commerce as if they were actually firearms, firearms accessories, or ammunition. The authority of congress to regulate interstate commerce in basic materials does not include authority to regulate firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition made in North Carolina from those materials. Firearms accessories that are imported into North Carolina from another state and that are subject to federal regulation as being in interstate commerce do not subject a firearm to federal regulation under interstate commerce because they are attached to or used in conjunction with a firearm in North Carolina.

Section 5. Exceptions. [Section 4] does not apply to:

(1) a firearm that cannot be carried and used by one person;

(2) a firearm that has a bore diameter greater than 1 1/2 inches and that uses smokeless powder, not black powder, as a propellant; or

(3) ammunition with a projectile that explodes using an explosion of chemical energy after the projectile leaves the firearm.

Section 6. Marketing of firearms. A firearm manufactured or sold in North Carolina under [sections 1 through 6] must have the words “Made in North Carolina” clearly stamped on a central metallic part, such as the receiver or frame.

Section 7. Codification instruction. [Sections 1 through 6] are intended to be codified as an integral part of Title 30, and the provisions of Title 30 apply to [sections 1 through 6].

Section 8. Applicability. [This act] applies to firearms, firearms accessories, and ammunition that are manufactured, as defined in [section 3], and retained in North Carolina after January 1, 2010.
