The Tenth Amendment Center is marking their nine year anniversary since their inception. The Constitution is a contract between the people, the states and the federal government. It gives the federal government very very limited power. Basically maintain standards, promote interstate commerce and act as a bargaining agent in international affairs. The tenth amendment, as you know, specifically takes away and prohibits any other power the federal government would like to usurp making it clear all others go to the people and the states.
My how times have changed. How did it come to this? The federal government today has usurped all kinds of power and control they have no contractual authority to have. Indeed they have become some kind of huge beast parasitic on all of America bleeding the life right out of her. We can't even afford to pay the federal government annual operating expenses they are borrowing us right into bankruptcy.
The states themselves have been complicit in creating and feeding this federal beast as they have not enforced the Constitutional contract, checks and balances, like they should have. The federal government can declare any kind of blathering about godship they wish. But if its not in the contract it means absolutely nothing at the state level. Shouldn't be enforced there yet the states let the federal government get away with non-contractual authority? No wonder we have major problems.
The Tenth Amendment Center, if I may be so blunt, is reminding the states they have balls and are helping them to find them. Time to reign this out of control federal beast back into contractual confinement. The Tenth Amendment Center has had many significant successes. Here is a link to their anniversary video message:
For all you people that tell yourself "I'm just one person what can I do?"... Take a look at the Tenth Amendment Center for just one answer to that question. Nine years ago one person wants to spread an idea to a handful of people optimistically. Nines years later that one person is changing the course of American history. What can one person do? A good start would be to donate supporting the Tenth Amendment Center's public funded operation.
On this planet we have over 7 billion people just wanting to be able to live their lives, raise their families and be left alone to do so. They are willing to work for it, make their own way and even by nature will help others around them struggling to do the same. They don't want to hurt their neighbors, steal from them, kill them nor tell them what they must do and how they must live. Everyone recognizes the environment is a mother that gives us all life and should be protected not trashed forever gone for spreadsheet bottom line numbers for a few who won't even be able to spend it because all life on the planet is gone now.
I'm sure there are the exceptions, bad hair days, but I believe this is pretty much the gist of it.
Then there are the very few, less than 1 million I'm pretty sure, who have managed to gain all the control, power and wealth the fate of the entire planet is in theirs hands alone. Using power and control for their own personal gain. Damn everything, everyone everywhere. It is just those very few that is important no matter how damaging and the consequences of their choices for everyone and the entire planet itself. Yes they are destroying it all but that is not important. What is important is that they were in control of it all when the lights go out.
Give us your sick, twisted, emotionally damaged, early childhood traumatized...
This one is for all those aware that they are trapped and can not escape from a world gone insane. Tortured artists and visionary prophets they saw this all ending very badly for humanity from 30 years away.
For all those who can see the house they have to live in is being burnt down around them while everyone sits in the living room watching the game.
For all those that have to come to terms with dead zones appearing new all over the planet and expanding in size exponentially increasing as people are buying environmental terminator SUV's because the advertisement said buy it to be green.
For all those on a train they can see is headed 90 mph into a brick wall but can not get off nor stop the train and no one else on the train sees the wall coming.
For all those that can see unlimited money is available for death and destruction war machines yet none for life and construction. All the while the masses are worshiping this death machine please blow up and destroy another country for my own self worth. So a handful of megalomaniacs can blow it all up just to be world rulers of the tattered remains of humanity which is now just livestock.
For all those that can see the fate of all mankind is in the hands of fools.
Several years ago something happened that caused me to turn the TV off, stop what I was doing and take a look for myself, as best I could, at what was actually going on. It was something like one pebble hit me that turned into an avalanche.
"Oh shit! That's not what I thought it was at all." I was lied to. Intentionally and knowingly deceived into believing it is something it is not!"
I don't know about you but "stuff?" like that bothers me. I don't like it nor want it. Now the door has been opened. "Their" credibility totally destroyed. The question that just begs asking? What other "Stuff" is floating around in me that is also nothing but intentional deception? Now I have to re-examine everything for myself as best I can. As it turns out just about everything bureaucratic, governmental, educational and via mass media in ALL forms is for the most part a complete lie. Nothing but STINKING "Stuff". I've been living in some kind of "Matrix" dream world. The American dream specifically.
A pebble caused an avalanche I tell you.
A brief Nullification primer. It goes something like this:
The Federal Government stands up and declares "I am God. Everyone everywhere has to do everything I say!"
The states, individual sovereign nations in their own rights, listen to this federal declaration with eyes squinting and mouths agape. They reply "No.. You're an asshole. And if we catch you in our state talking like that we'll have you arrested."
Now I know it doesn't actually transpire like this but this is, I believe, a good definition of the spirit behind it all.
This is usually how it comes down in practice:
The Federal Government enacts another UNconstitutional law that grants them more power and authority over everyone everywhere. They just love doing that.
The states respond by telling the Federal government "Wow.. that's a really nice new UNconstitutional law granting yourself even more power and authority. You seem to like doing that. But because it is UNconstitutional it is null and void. Not a law that will be enforced in our state. And should you come into our state and try to enforce that non-law we will have you arrested." Asshole....
