Seriously is this the hope and change you wanted?
Is this the End of what our fathers fought and died to create for us, A Better America?
Are we seeing the destruction of America because of a small percentage of out of control Liberals?
Perhaps you may have heard about job killing bills that Washington has created, with huge numbers of unemployed, is it wise to pass bills that prevent small business companies from growing?
Small business drive this economy, without the millions of small business owners this nation would expire, This bill is Evil and must be defeated, H.R. 1249 must be defeated and those that signed it must be voted out of office because they are as evil as this bill is evil, men that would support this bill are not Americans they are alleged, trash and not fit for office and should be recalled.
My Friends I received this in an email and it is disturbing, and not surprising that we have a radical crew, of individuals that are dedicated to allowing unconstitutional changes to the very fabric of our way of life, on the surface it may not seem like much, but when you really look at what they are proposing in the Senate we must stop this evil bill, that would effectively put an end to the American Dream of being an inventor.
H.R. 1249 Will Kill our nation, it will destroy our way of life, it is fashioned after the European style of government, my friends this is not Europe, and perhaps it is time to send Washington a message that anyone who thinks they are living in Europe should leave now, because We the people know where we live, WE know our history, it is time for this nonsense to stop, it is time to vote these dirt bags out of office, they are attempting to sell our way of life right out from under our feet.
When will American learn…
This would take away the opportunity of the average man
It robs the American of everything that makes us free.
It is Abhorrent and it comes from the Liberal Controlled Senate.
I urge you to consider what it would mean if only large corporations control patents, and inventions?
What would it mean if a large corporation could patent the way that you spell your name, did you know that they could make you pay a fee every-time you signed your name, I know it sounds crazy and stupid, but if this is allowed to go through it will stop our economy dead in its tracts, for no one will ever want to try to invent anything any more.
Please read this it is important.
Please take time to read this and please do what you can to spread the word this is the most disgusting thing I have read in a long time, and again understand that at first you may think it does not matter but when you really read what they want to do, you will understand that it favors large corporations over Americans, it favors law that was created outside of American values, it is not the American Way it is Unconstitutional and it is Evil.
While Washington is busy arguing loudly and slowly about government shutdowns, Obama and his allies in both parties are being awfully quick and quiet about their plan to take away our Constitutional property rights and bail out their multinational corporate friends with trillions of dollars in new wealth transfers. The Orwellian name of this destructive legislation is the “America Invents Act” (H.R. 1249). We call it “ObamaPatent.” It’s unconstitutional; it will harm small business and innovation; and it will destroy jobs.
They know you will find out about this legislative scheme. So they’re skipping the usual House subcommittee action on the bill and trying to ram this bill through the full committee and the House before you know what’s happening.
There’s no time to lose. Join me today and help stop H.R. 1249 ObamaPatent:
Email me at email@example.com. Put “Yes, I want to help stop ObamaPatent” in the subject line. I will follow up with you directly to coordinate our strategy.
The next day that Congress is open for business, call your Representative.
U.S. House switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and ask for your Representative by name. Once you are connected to the office, ask for the staff member who handles patents. Tell him/her that H.R. 1249 America Invents Act is unconstitutional because it changes the patent system established in Article I Section 8 Clause 8 of the U.S. Constitution. Tell them to keep America’s Constitutional First-To-Invent patent system. Tell them you will be watching their vote on H.R. 1249, the America Invents Act. Tell them it’s time to stand up for the Constitution and for the creation of jobs we so desperately need.
Like you, I’m a regular American.
I’m a husband and father of two, a former police and SWAT officer, a small businessman and a technology innovator and entrepreneur. I founded the Maui TEA Party and co-founded the Hawaii TEA Party and served as its first President. I did this because, like you, I know that government spending and power are out of control. You can verify who I am at newleadersolutions.com and our coalition of conservatives at americasjobcreators.com.
Candidate Obama said he was five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.
Boy, he wasn’t kidding.
As his onslaught of grossly anti-American and pro-European-style plans, policies, and projects continues, it’s hard to keep track of them all. Yet, here’s another, and here’s why this one really matters.
Obama, his Democrat allies, and many “tenured” Republicans are working with some of the world’s largest multinational corporations to “harmonize” America’s patent system with those of Europe and Japan. They are trying to weaken the American system (currently the best in the world) to match the systems used by these foreign countries.
Just this week, Obama’s patent chief, David Kappos, was at an international elitist meeting in London proclaiming to the EU that the goal of the proposed ObamaPatent system is “global harmonization.” Kappos referred to our nation’s Constitutional patent system as “19th Century” and “bizarre.” Sounds like Obama’s global apology tour, but now they are apologizing for our Constitution.
Why care about patents? If we Americans can’t control the fruits of our own inventions and technology, our country will quickly become a technology and jobs backwater.
Intellectual property (e.g. patents, copyrights) is the currency of the new economy.
But its crucial importance to job creation and growth was recognized long ago by our Founding Fathers.
When they wrote the Constitution, the founders specifically included the revolutionary idea of awarding patents — not to the king’s favorites such as was common practice in England and elsewhere — but to the individual person who actually came up with the invention. This is known as the First-To-Invent patent system and was established by Article I Section 8 Clause 8 of the Constitution, which states:
“To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries.”
The founders’ radical First-To-Invent approach to patent awards instantaneously leveled the playing field between the little guy building the dream technology of tomorrow in his workshop or garage and the giant, entrenched, multinational corporate interests that always seek to dampen disruptive innovation to protect their dominant market share. By awarding patents to the actual inventor, our Founding Fathers incentivized innovation by and for everyone and unleashed the American know-how that has helped power our country’s economic and military success for over 224 years.
Who benefits most from America’s Constitutional First-To-Invent patent award system? The little guy, the small, medium and independent businesses, the innovators, America’s middle class, the people who, literally, fought for and built this country and made it great, the people who live in and are loyal to this country. (Come to think of it, I just described the grassroots of the TEA Party movement).
Under ObamaPatent, the U.S. will adopt the European system and award the patent to the first entity to file a claim to new technology. Given the cost, complexity, and delay of the patent filing process, ObamaPatent will tilt the playing field sharply in favor of large, multinational, entrenched business interests. Then, America’s technology, industries, and jobs will move even more quickly overseas.
In this master stroke, Obama rewards his large corporate donors (think General Electric, which is a big proponent of ObamaPatent) with a cheaper and easier way to steal American technology and take it overseas. And, Obama simultaneously undercuts the small and independent business people who are the core of the TEA Party and reduces private sector manufacturing jobs, thus forcing more voters into government employment, onto the dole, and into ObamaCare. And he gets to weaken America’s economy and military, all at the same time. Brilliant!!
The great majority of legal scholars who have examined Obama’s First-To-File patent system have concluded that it violates Article I Section 8 Clause 8, and that ObamaPatent’s First-To-File system is unconstitutional. No scholar has yet asserted that Obama’s First-To-File system is constitutional. But, as I re-discovered two weeks ago in my first trip back to DC in 20 years, Congress doesn’t care much about what the Constitution says.
Like ObamaCare, ObamaPatent is an unconstitutional and unholy alliance between big government and big business harming the rest of us.
This legislation is moving fast. It has already passed the Senate and its House equivalent, H.R. 1249, is moving quickly. Many GOP members are helping Obama with his plan.
There’s no time to lose. Analysts agree that the only ones who can stop ObamaPatent now are America’s Constitutional conservatives and TEA Party citizens like you and me.
Please pass this information on to your family, friends and fellow citizens. Ask them to join us in stopping this unconstitutional, multinational power grab and jobs destroyer.
P.S. America’s Midwest and manufacturing states will be hit especially hard by ObamaPatent. I will be in Western Ohio April 14 to 21 working with grassroots conservatives to stop ObamaPatent. If you are in Western Ohio or nearby, email me and we’ll get together.
