Somebody with some fortitude calling out he hypocrisy of taxpayer dollars funding an underground Bunker
Your taxpayer dollar's hard at work...to build a bunker for the Governor
The above links give a summary of the bunker controversy...
Now Bredesen waffles on the newest piece of gun legislation in TN, the Firearms Freedom Act...which allows Tennesseans to purchase firearms/ammo made in TN and be free from Federal Govt. taxation and regulation.. He doesn't want to rock the boat by vetoing the bill so he sheepishly dismisses it as being a bill built on 'fringe constitutional theory'...I want a Tennessean Governor who has some balls...Someone who will either enforce the Constitution and return to State Sovereignty or at the very least stand up for what you believe and not just insult the Representatives by flippantly dismissing the importance of this bill...
I think Bredesen has never read the Commerce Clause:
"The provision of the U.S. Constitution that gives Congress exclusive power over trade activities among the states and with foreign countries and Indian tribes.
Article 1, Section 8, Clause 3, of the Constitution empowers Congress "to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among several States, and with the Indian Tribes." The term commerce as used in the Constitution means business or commercial exchanges in any and all of its forms between citizens of different states, including purely social communications between citizens of different states by telegraph, telephone, or radio, and the mere passage of persons from one state to another for either business or pleasure.
Intrastate, or domestic, commerce is trade that occurs solely within the geographic borders of one state. As it does not move across state lines, intrastate commerce is subject to the exclusive control of the state."
