The Taiwan Policy Act (TPA) was reintroduced on January 25, 2013 by Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL) together with the four co-chairs of the Congressional Taiwan Caucus. The TPA is the most important and weightiest piece of Taiwan legislation in the U.S. Congress since the Taiwan Security Enhancement Act of 2000. The TPA builds on the 1979 Taiwan Relations Act (TRA - which has functioned effectively as the cornerstone of US-Taiwan relations over the past three decades). It does not amend or supersede the TRA. http://fapa.org/new/index.php?option=com_content&view=section&id=8&layout=blog&Itemid=28

We support any legislation that restricts the power of Executive Orders.

It is unfortunate that this legislation is even being considered, but FSFFA would endorse this legislation.

H.R. 410 would provide that any “existing or proposed executive action that infringes on the powers and duties of Congress under section 8 of article I of the Constitution or the Second Amendment to the Constitution shall have no force or effect” and prohibit funding of any such deficient executive action. H.R. 410 would also provide standing for any of the following persons to “bring an action in an appropriate United States court to challenge the validity of any executive action which infringes on the powers and duties of Congress under section 8 of article I of the Constitution or the Second Amendment to the Constitution”: (1) any member of Congress (or either or both chambers acting pursuant to a vote); (2) the highest governmental official of any State, commonwealth, district, territory or possession of the United States, or any political subdivision thereof (or their designee); or, (3) any person “aggrieved in a liberty or property interest adversely affected by the challenged executive action.”

I support The Restore the Constitution Act because...I am tired of the deceit and lies this potus has perpetuated. He is NOT an emperor , just an elected official who has overstepped too many times promoting his will instead of the will of the people!

I support The Restore the Constitution Act because... we do not need any infringement on our rights as American citizens! America simply needs God back in charge! You take away the Ten Commandments and then wonder why society has declined! You disallow children from wearing their "I Love Jesus" t-shirt in schools, yet champion a child for "coming out"!! What good does that do for society! We need Jesus back in the hearts of our youth! That'll fix all the problems with society today! God help is, we are not going in the right direction if you continue to remove God from the forefront!

I support The Restore the Constitution Act because...Running the present Government by having a "pen and Phone" doesn't constitute a free Republic. What has happened to our Rights under the Constitution, when one person can dictate how our Republic can be ran and how to dictate laws with a pen stroke. Continue our Rights of the Constitution that have stood the test of time and legal battles.

I oppose The Restore the Constitution Act because such a bill would eliminate due process and truncate any sense of balance of powers with no clear benefit for such a sacrifice.

I oppose The Restore the Constitution Act because it is superfluous in nature. The Constitution already guarantees everything that this bill states. It is exactly this kind of legislation that causes so many problems because it attempts to preempt the wording and nature of the Constitution. If a President issues an executive order that is illegal, it can already be challenged in the courts and if illegal, it will be demonstrated as so.

I oppose H.R. 410: Restore the Constitution Act of 2013 because distorted interpretations of the second amendment do not outweigh its original intent or public safety.

I oppose H.R. 410: Restore the Constitution Act of 2013. This is an egregious example of tea-party paranoia. Remember, a majority of American voters support their President. Remember also, Republican candidates in the 2012 election received fewer votes than Democratic candidates. Your ascendancy in the House is limited.

I oppose H.R. 410: Restore the Constitution Act of 2013 because...this issue is not bigger than the constitution. Those who would support it should buy up Wyoming and go live there and leave the rest of the civilized world alone.
