I am the mother of a child with Down Syndrome and anyone who thinks that life isn't worth living with Down Syndrome is dead wrong.  My son has a love of life greater than most people.  He loves life.  He loves music.  He loves people.  Although many things are difficult for him, he never gives up.  Anything he decides that he is going to do, he eventually suceeds at doing it, even if he does it in a different way.  Woman need to get more informed about Down Syndrome.  It isn't the awful thing that many people try to say it is.  No matter what, life is precious.  We should never decide whether an innocent life has the right to life or has the desire for life.  Even a difficult, short life is precious.

Sending our soldiers into wars that do not defend us and actually make people hate us more is also a show of his disregard for life.  His drone attacks sometimes on people that they have no proof of being terrorist and then attacking again when people come to treat the wounded and again when people attend the funeral is another example of his disregard for life.  ObamaCare's payment for counciling on end of life decisions and priotizing treatment by how much value a person supposedly is demonstrates his disregard for life.  From conception to old age he doesn't care about anyone but himself (and maybe his family and a few friends, Maybe).

 @LarryChambers  @DonJ He didn't get elected because the media treated him like an idiot when he was smarter than them.  They did a good job fooling the electorate into fearing him.  Most of the coverage of Ron Paul was misleading or outright laws.   Equally important, the leadership of both parties feared and hated him.  They did everything they could to shut him out including breaking the majority of their own bylaws.  There were even a few cases of outright violence against Ron Paul supporters.  Both parties proved that they don't listen to or follow the will of the people.  There is a miniscule chance of a change in leadership of the Republican party leading to the peoples votes and voice counting, but most likely, the change won't happen and we'll have to accept that we don't have any influence on our government or we have to convince an overwelming number of citizens to form a 3rd party.  Due to fraud and a limited ability for a 3rd party candidate to get national attention, it would require an overwelming majority instead of the simple majority that should be required.

Last year Wyoming passed an identical law.  This year Wyoming was the first to introduce a bill that banned enforcement of any federal law (not just guns/ammo manufactured in the state) that infringed on the freedom to bear arms passed after January 1st, 2013 and would charge any federal official trying to enforce the law with a felony, a minimum of 1 year & 1day & a maximum of 5 years, and a $5000 fine.  It also allowed the WY AG to defend state residents charged with a federal gun ban crime.  It is expected to pass.

 I agree with most of what you say, but I believe that secession is the same as armed revolution because I believe that Obama will react nearly identically to Abraham Lincoln and immediately attack all states that secede.  That is why I recommend states nulllifying federal action.  It is a last ditch effort to stop tyrrany and try to prevent armed conflict.  I do not believe that either side (the mostly sane ones anyway) truly wants armed conflict if it can be prevented.

Although I think that we should write to our US Representaives & Senators and that rallies show them where we stand, it is hard for individuals to influence the Federal government when they truly don't care what we think (They do care about re-elction though). I believe that the best way to reign in the federal government is for the states to stand up to the feds. The states need to refuse federal bribes and need to refuse to enforce unconstitutional laws. If the majority of states chose to stand up for states rights and the constitution, it is impossible for the federal government to continue its tyrannical overreach. Any laws that are not among the ennumerated powers are fair game for nullification because the federal government has broken the contract between the states and the feds and therefore the states are no longer bound to obey. It can even be argued that the states could cease being part of the united states because of the complete breaking of the contract by the feds disobeying the constitution so completely, but I don't recommend going so far at this point. I believe the union is worth saving.
