THE FOLLOWING PETITION AND THE LIST OF SIGNATURES WILL BE FORWARDED TO OFFICES OF THE GOVERNOR AND THE TENNESSEE LEGISLATORS AS SIGNATURES ARE ADDED. We the citizens of the State of Tennessee wish to express our concern regarding the acceptance of the Federal Stimulus Package and any future such packages by the State of Tennessee to Governor Phil Bredesen and the Tennessee Legislature. In short, we would like for you to reject all such money. We believe acceptance of these dollars calls into question the sovereignty of any states that accept it. Furthermore, we feel certain that the ongoing expenses associated with continuing new and amended programs in the State of Tennessee as a result of this package will result in additional tax burdens for Tennesseans after Federal Stimulus dollars run out. Finally, we wish to express our desire to reject the Stimulus on the merits that it is inconsistent with the sound principles of free market economics that have brought centuries of prosperity to our country. All known such Keynesian attempts at economic intervention have created severe economic burdens for those of whom such government intervention has been forced. While we understand that we and our descendents are being forced to accept responsibility for this burden, whether we Tennesseans accepts these dollars or not, we reject such responsibility in principle. Hereby, we provide our verbal denial of our desire to accept financial responsibility for any such Bailout, Stimulus, or Spending Plan, in any form, be it payable through tax increases or the devaluation of our dollars through inflationary pressure produced by the Federal Government and the Federal Reserve. Commentary: If Tennessee will stand with its citizens in rebellion of this and other economic spending sprees, perhaps the citizens of all states will make their voices heard as well and reject this package. If all states will stand firm together, the package will be rejected and this money will not be wasted burdening our children and grandchildren for decades to come. Though we are in a recession, the economy is not nearly as bad as during the recession of the 70’s and nowhere near that of the Great Depression. We as citizens and thousands of respected economists are confident that the best way to a quick recovery is through a reduction in the size of government and taxes on citizens and corporations. Reducing individual tax burdens will inspire spending and reducing corporate taxes will inspire new investment from around the world. Americans have great resolve and we can help lead the world out of this recession if we act now, but continued mass government spending regardless of the beneficiary will only lead to a longer, slower recovery and inflationary pressure that will devalue every dollar we have. AFTER COMPLETING PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD TO YOUR FRIENDS VIA EMAIL! Bredesen: http://www.tennesseeanytime.org/governor/Welcome.do Tennessee Legislature: http://www.legislature.state.tn.us/

Comments: One of the gesrteat assets to our society is trained, talented, individuals who can begin their careers with the needed skill set to perform the jobs right. It is a breath of fresh air to see the government run schools realize the true needs of the students and partner them with other students who have walked in their shoes. Kudos to the those who embrace the true value of gainful employment for our students!

Comments: cost etiematss used as evidence that implementation of the TNVCA would be cost prohibitive were so wildly disparate. Privacy booths would cost $10.00 each in Haywood County and $750.00 each in Cannon County?
