Amazing reminder of how America should work from the good folks at The Tenth Amendment Center.
I've written about these people before, but they definitely have the right idea about how to get America to work the way it was designed to work again. You definitely need to support them. Their website is at tenthamendmentcenter.com. Mike Maharrey has been a guest on my radio program, and he is a very good writer, and a true CONSTITUTIONAL conservative/patriot, as you can clearly see here:
Here is an excerpt to tickle your fancy:
"Washington advised that we should hold tight to the original Constitution and avoid giving in to the temptation to turn it into a 'living, breathing' document that changes at the whim of whoever holds power. As Washington put it, we must 'resist with care the spirit of innovation upon its principles, however specious the pretexts.' Washington wrote that 'one method of assault may be to effect, in the forms of the Constitution, alterations which will impair the energy of the system, and thus to undermine what cannot be directly overthrown.'
We see these alterations in the Constitution all the time – mostly courtesy of the federal courts as they have expanded various clauses to 'authorize' federal actions that were clearly left to the states and the people. Thanks to these constitutional 'alterations,' the federal government has interjected itself into almost every area of our lives, from dictating how much water flushes down our toilets to the kinds of light bulbs we can screw into our fixtures."
The article just keeps getting better from there, and is definitely worth your time.
Speaking of the Tenth Amendment...Here it is (because you will never hear it discussed by our "representatives" or the people on T.V.):
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people."
Why do we never hear about it? Because it flies in the face of what 90% of the population, sadly, seems to want nowadays...i.e. a strong, centralized, federal government that is all-powerful and unquestioned by the States (or the people) in its rapaciousness.
We need to plaster the Tenth Amendment on light poles all across America, and in high-traffic locations everywhere. If we don't get Americans AWAKE soon, to how America is supposed to operate, there will be no America left. Truly.
The people need to nullify bad law through the jury process at every opportunity. They need to elect tenth-amendment supporting state governors who will nullify bad federal mandates at every opportunity. In short, we need to start USING our Constitution before we totally lose it. Nullification works, and The Tenth Amendment Center is the center of the effort to reclaim our Constitutional Republic.
