I just wrote the following to Congressman Chris Gibson's campaign staff:
Dear Messrs. Westcott, Quigley, and Czajka:
I’m sorry that you had to miss Ms. Rosa Koire, the speaker in Olive tonight (please note that the speaker was tonight, not last night). The information provided in Ms. Koire’s lecture was consistent with what I had heard in previous talks by Tom Deweese and others. I am still interested in Congressman Gibson’s position on Agenda 21.
(1) As you know, Article Four, section four of the Constitution delegates the authority of guaranteeing a republican form of government in each state to Congress. This process has been adjudicated in at least two Supreme Court decisions, both of which held that Congress bears responsibility for ensuring that states retain republican forms of government.
(2) The claim that Agenda 21 is irrelevant to state governance does not change Congress’s responsibility to ensure a republican form of government. If Agenda 21 does what Ms. Koire and Mr. Deweese claim or not, Congress still must ensure that the states have republican forms of government.
(3) Delegation of state power to private corporations is inconsistent with a republican form of government. Whether or not Agenda 21 has coordinated this kind of delegation, it is still desirable for Congress to prohibit it.
(4) Therefore, whether or not Congressman Gibson agrees that Agenda 21 poses a threat to republican government, he should have no trouble supporting a law that (a) prohibits states from allocating governmental authority to non-governmental organizations and (b) prohibits federal funding of any locality or state that allocates governmental authority to a non-governmental organization.
I would appreciate a statement from Congressman Gibson on two points:
(1) His position on Agenda 21 and its congressional abrogation
(2) Whether he will be willing to propose a law that would prohibit states from being governed by NGOs and would prohibit federal funding of any governmental organization that so delegates.
