    Yesterday the citizens of Missouri voted overwhelmingly, 71%-29%, to reject the unconstitutional ObamaCare mandate that forces us all to buy a product we may not want. Of the State's 114 counties, only two voted with Obama, and those were the two biggest urban counties in the state. Every other county voted to reject the Obama socialist scheme. In one county in northern Missouri, the vote was 89.2% against.

    That in itself is a earthshaking story. But the backstory is even more important: Proposition C was campaigned for and passed by the people themselves.

    By the thousands, regular folks printed their own campaign literature and distributed it door to door in their neighborhoods. They made their own signs. They communicated directly with their own families, friends and co-workers. They made this happen. It wasn't done by political or advertising hacks. It wasn't done with corrosive mountains of political money. This historic effort was truly of, by, and for the people.

    I offer my heartfelt thanks and congratulations to the citizens of the Show Me State for this great victory. Some black-robed despot may well step in and lawlessly lay claim to possessing more power than the people themselves, but the message you sent with your support of Proposition C cannot be misunderstood. And the example you have set provides renewed hope to all who believe in American republican self-government.

    Now it is time for all freedom-loving Americans to follow the Missouri example and to translate this latent power to electoral politics.

    As individuals we must return to America's founding principles, as laid out in the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution. We must resolve to never again compromise those principles, not even for perceived short-term political gain. We must then unite with every other American who has made the same resolve. We must raise up new leaders who actually represent us. And then we must do the heavy lifting necessary, right where we live, to put them in office.

    The political class says that money is the mother's milk of politics, but it's not. It's one hundred proof corn liquor.

    Forget about who has more money. Forget about who has the most television ads. Forget about who can hire the most consultants to shape public opinion and sell their "product" like soap. Look to the candidate's principles. If they agree with the founders, and if you're confident they will adhere to the founder's principles, elect them. It really is that simple. It really is up to you.

    The presidency is powerful. The Congress is powerful. The Courts are powerful. But their power is nothing compared to the intrinsic power of the American people, under God. May we rediscover that truth, from sea to shining sea, before it is too late. May that awesome power be excercised soon, before the greatest country in history is utterly destroyed by those who hate it. That is my hope, and that is my prayer.

Cunningham and other members of the state legislature placed the proposition on the August primary ballot, which would block federal efforts to have all citizens buy health insurance.

    Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a federal mandate to purchase health insurance, rebuking [Alleged] President Barack Obama's administration and giving Republicans their first political victory in a national campaign to overturn the controversial health care law passed by Congress in March.

    "The citizens of the Show-Me State don't want Washington involved in their health care decisions," said Sen. Jane Cunningham, R-Chesterfield, one of the sponsors of the legislation that put Proposition C on the August ballot. She credited a grass-roots campaign involving Tea Party and patriot groups with building support for the anti-Washington proposition.

    With most of the vote counted, Proposition C was winning by a ratio of nearly 3 to 1. The measure, which seeks to exempt Missouri from the insurance mandate in the new health care law, includes a provision that would change how insurance companies that go out of business in Missouri liquidate their assets.

    "I've never seen anything like it," Cunningham said at a campaign gathering at a private home in Town and Country. "Citizens wanted their voices to be heard."
