November 18, 2009 – We are proud to announce RJ Harris US Congressional Candidate Oklahoma 4th District has been endorsed by The Republican Liberty Caucus National Board. Below is the RLC’s letter of endorsement which you may also find at the RJHarris2010.com.

November 17, 2009

The Republican Liberty Caucus is pleased to announce its endorsement of R.J. Harris in his campaign to represent the 4th District of Oklahoma in the House of Representatives.

The RLC Board of Directors selected Mr. Harris as one of its first endorsed candidates for the 2010 primary season because of his issue stances in support of individual rights, limited government, and free enterprise. We believe Mr. Harris will be a strong defender of liberty as a member of Congress and an outstanding representative for the people of Oklahoma.

“As a soldier Mr. Harris has pledged his life to support and defend the Constitution. He has the character and integrity to be the next Congressman from Oklahoma because he has done something that most congressmen have not done, and that is he has actually reads and understands the Constitution,” said RLC National Committee member Dan Sheill.

Dave Nalle, of Texas, the national chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus, mentioned that “what separates R.J. Harris from most conservatives today is that he fully understands that respect for the 10th Amendment and federalism requires that Congress and the President cannot legislate social policy that is properly reserved to the states.”

The Republican Liberty Caucus wishes Mr. Harris good luck in his campaign, and will do everything in its power to promote him and Republican candidates like him to bring the Republican Party back to its core principles of individual liberty, limited government, and free enterprise.

The Health Care Bill and Your Rights…As A Parent.

November 10, 2009

By RJ Harris, U.S. Congressional Candidate Oklahoma 4th District

The Ninth Amendment of the Bill of Rights protects your un-enumerated rights. The Supreme Court has held that the right to have children is a fundamental right and therefore is indeed protected by this amendment. Hand in hand with this right, is the right to raise your children as you see fit according to your own beliefs, morals and standards so long as those do not infringe upon the child’s own rights to life, liberty, property or unremunerated rights (remembering that you are the guardian of your children’s rights until they reach the age(s) of consent).

As a parent then, and the legal guardian of your children’s inalienable as well as constitutionally protected rights, what are you going to do when a panel of government bean counters says that you cannot have your baby, you MUST abort him, because he has Down Syndrome and he will present an unacceptable cost on the now socialized health care system?

As a parent then, what are you going to do when life saving treatment is refused to your child because it is deemed costly to the system or because it’s chance of success is lower than what the newly commissioned “Federal Health Agency” believes is acceptable even if the doctors want to try and save your child’s life.

As a parent then, what are you going to do when government bureaucrats, heavily lobbied by the pharmaceutical industry and under the authority about to be given to them by Congress through this bill, FORCE your children to have administered to them experimental vaccinations and inoculations as was done to hundreds of thousands of Desert Storm soldiers in 1990?

As a parent then, what are you going to do when the government uses hereditary dispositions and government mandated DNA testing to determine that your child’s potential future medical conditions, as well as those he could pass on to his children, require that he be sterilized?

As a parent then, are you going to sit there and take this from a federal government whose only job is supposed to be to protect our individual liberty and state sovereignty? When you are in a government ran neo-natal facility about to have your baby forcibly aborted…it will be too late to make your stand against these tyrannies. When your child is turned away from a government cancer or heart defect facility…it will be too late to make your stand against these tyrannies. When you come home from work and find out that your child was vaccinated without your consent while she was at school…it will be too late to make your stand against these tyrannies. When your child suffers horrible debilitating reactions to experimental inoculations, as did thousands of Desert Storm soldiers to their experimental anthrax inoculations…it will be too late to make your stand against these tyrannies. When a routine check-up in a government run health clinic finds your child is a victim of a hereditary disease that could be wiped out if all carriers were sterilized…it will be too late for you to make your stand against these tyrannies.

You must make your stand now! Vote to replace any Congressman or Senator that voted/votes for this bill and make sure that they know now that that is what you’re going to do. Should this bill pass, call, email and write your Governor’s office and tell her that you demand she protect the citizenry of your state from these unconstitutional tyrannies and if she refuses…then make sure you vote for a Liberty Candidate to replace her. For example, State Senator Randy Brogdon, Candidate for Governor of Oklahoma, has said that he will block at the border all unconstitutional federal infringements into Oklahoma sovereignty and personal liberty that Washington foists upon the states. I have said that as Congressman I will not vote for ANY unconstitutional legislation or spending. My friends, these are the leaders we need. Electing persons of courage and audacity to fight for us is how we make our stand against these tyrannies BEFORE they can gain a hold.

Fellow parents, if we allow this government to continue down this progressive road to socialism unchecked by our political force…it will take more than votes to make our stand against these tyrannies. And when the fighting requires more than an appearance at a town hall meeting or some time to investigate the candidates or a donation to a Constitutional Conservative, we will have the awful shame of knowing that we were the generation that squandered our children’s birthright of freedom bequeathed to them by the Spirit of the Founders.

Does the Constitution Allow Congress to Provide Health Care?

November 10, 2009

By RJ Harris, U.S. Congressional Candidate Oklahoma 4th District

Heath Care is an individual welfare and as such the federal government has no business attempting to provide it or dictating to our states how to provide it. Article I Sec 8 of the Constitution allows the Congress to provide for the general welfare “of the United States.” Herein the United States is referred to as an entity unto itself which excludes the notion of welfare as the greater good for the most individuals. Individual welfare is never mentioned in the Constitution and the Congress has no power to provide it. However, the Tenth Amendment reserves all powers not explicitly given to Congress to the states. Thus, the states may provide socialized health care, if their citizens allow them, but the federal Congress cannot. The only way Congress could and should address problems in the health care market is to ensure that trade barriers to the health insurance market, erected between the states, are removed in accordance with the commerce clause.

Doug Hoffman: Champion of the Republic!

November 4, 2009

By RJ Harris, U.S. Congressional Candidate Oklahoma 4th District

NY 23rd and What it Means to the Nation.

Lost among the political posturing and punditry is the simple unassailable fact that a little known conservative candidate stood up to the GOP establishment in his state, which had abandoned him for a liberal, and demanded that the voice of the people, and not the party, finally be heard. Hurled at him were the usual diatribes from the usual suspects questioning his viability, his loyalty and his motives. Slowly, by remaining faithful to his message and his constituents, he began to attract the attention of his district’s conservative base and the help and praise from stalwart conservatives and libertarians from all over the nation. Tea Party Patriots and 912 Marchers began buzzing about an opportunity to stand up and with a loud clear voice shout to the President, the socialists, the progressives and the turncoat liberal wing of the GOP that we are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore! Win or lose Doug Hoffman is a champion of the Republic and what he has done changes everything.

In the aftermath of election day, people will ask ‘what are the ramifications of this historic occurrence on the upcoming 2010 off-year elections’? The most obvious answer for incumbent Republican and Democrat progressive bailout voters, including my opponent for Oklahoma’s 4th US Congressional district is: start packing your lockers because your replacements are on their way!
