In just two months’ time, approximately 500 bills have been introduced to the Vermont Legislature. With this in mind…will the session ever end?
H.40. On March 3, we listened and debated for over two hours, Bill H-40 the so-called “Stealth Bill”. This bill was introduced by the Progressives and if you do not know what this bill says, please look it up. I left the floor session not wanting to hear any more filth and wondered how this even got onto the House floor in the first place. Then the next day, there was further debate and then a vote. I chose not to attend and hoped that my fellow Republicans and Conservatives would not even dignify H.40 and to leave as well, in that way, leaving the super majority alone in their support of this vulgar and inappropriate bill showing their lack of morals, reason and plain common sense. This bill would fundamentally be impossible to enforce and would lead to multiple lawsuits.
Also, the same week:
S.37 was introduced which is a bill against Christian Pregnancy Care Centers and which also attacks free speech.
H.53 is a bill concerning driver’s license suspensions. If a person loses their license, they would still be able to drive! This means there would be no personal, legal responsibility to drive or to even have a valid driver’s license.
H.148 raises the question of the legal age to marry…but a child (minor) can seek gender affirming care/surgery and gender change with no parental consent.
H.435 was introduced as a Progressive bill that would create and institute what they are calling a “Vermont Regenerative Economy” which would establish “appointed” consultants on 11 “Regional Peoples Assemblies” to oversee and authorize what businesses are feasible for an area to have, and which would dictate everything people do and chose to support. This is blatant Social/Marxism. This does not at all adhere to Constitutional Law, the Bill of Rights, or the history of our founding upon a free enterprise system.
Our citizens in Vermont, look to the government to lead and initiate sound policy to solve problems and to protect our rights and lives. But clearly and intelligently, we must look at our current super-majority Legislature to judge whether they are leading us down a path which endangers and undermines people’s individual responsibilities and integrity. Vermont’s New England culture is made up of “all the people” – not just a few elites who think they are in charge. It is a dangerous thing to deny God, and can lead to man, playing God. This indeed limits and destroys social and legal equality in our state and nation.
Is Vermont as we have loved it… disappearing?
