It’s not About Political Parties. It’s About Liberty

The Tenth Amendment Center

Many Americans are under the assumption that if Washington makes a law, we must abide by it.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  It is the hope of “our masters” that we have not read or understand the Constitution, and pay it the same regard as ” our lords” in the current administration.  The Founding Fathers in their creative genius, predicted today and a government that would attempt to force upon us legislation that We the People abhor.  You know, little issues like Cap and Trade, government sponsored health care denial, banning guns, giving amnesty to illegal aliens, to name several. States across the country are using the Tenth Amendment to protect their citizens from the heavy had of the far left run amok.  Random thoughts while bringing some sanity to the passing parade, J.C.

Fortunately we are protected by the Tenth Amendment to our Constitution.

Amendment 10 — Powers of the States and People under Constitution

Note well this. Anything not expressly granted to the Federal government is reserved for the States or the People. Although this amendment is very liberally interpreted, it is one of the tenets of the Constitution. This amendment is also known as the States’ Rights Amendment.

by Michael Boldin

The following is based off a speech I gave at the first annual Tenth Amendment Summit in Atlanta, GA on February 26, 2010.

How can a “crazy” Californian and a “conservative” Georgian be friends? It’s simple – through the principles of ’98. In 1798, the John Adams administration signed into law that Alien and Sedition Acts, which made it a crime to publish “false, scandalous, and malicious writing” against the government or its officials. In practice, it was used to quell the freedom of speech in dissent against the sitting administration.

In the Kentucky Resolutions of 1798, Thomas Jefferson responded:

“the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government”

But wait – that’s not all. He went on to say that all undelegated powers exercised by the federal government are “unathoritative, void and of no force.” And, that a “nullification of the act is the rightful remedy.”

Still can’t hear us Washington?  Moderate democrats are you willing to fall on your sword for Nancy?

There’s been plenty of people talking about nullification lately, but many people don’t know what it really means. I can think of no better way to define it than how my friend Derek Sheriff from the Arizona Tenth Amendment Center has done:

Nullification is not secession or insurrection, but neither is it unconditional or unlimited submission. Nullification is not something that requires any decision, statement or action from any branch of the federal government. Nullification is not the result of obtaining a favorable court ruling. Nullification is not the petitioning of the federal government to start doing or to stop doing anything. Nullification doesn’t depend on any federal law being repealed. Nullification does not require permission from any person or institution outside of one’s own state.

Nullification is something that’s already happening around the country – and Derek explains the process:

Nullification begins with a decision made in your state legislature to resist a federal law deemed to be unconstitutional. It usually involves a bill, which is passed by both houses and is signed by your governor. In some cases, it might be approved by the voters of your state directly, in a referendum. It may change your state’s statutory law or it might even amend your state constitution. It is a refusal on the part of your state government to cooperate with, or enforce any federal law it deems to be unconstitutional.

At its very core, nullification is mass civil-disobedience to the federal government with the support of the state apparatus. It’s about “We the People” exercising our rights whether the politicians or judges in Washington D.C want to give us “permission” to exercise those rights or not.  Complete Story.

    On the outside they are all seen to work for the public eye, but under the skin they are either underfunded or some other mechanism used to undermine its use. Most politicians are payed-off by the massive business sector, to allow the free movement of discount labor. E-Verify was nearly crippled from the start by Sen.Harry Reid and Speaker Nancy Pelosi and nearly tabled before it seeing the light of day. Even though it slipped through, it is only funded for three years. Because of its powerful potential it needs to be a permanent program, that cannot be touched by the open border organizations. Every disreputable corporate concern is livid that legislators have allowed it to become very popular amongst honest business. Business owners who use illegal foreign labor have used every method to repudiate the use of E-Verify throughout America.

    There is hardly any consequences from illegal aliens thieving American jobs, or getting preferences over citizens in the Emergency rooms. They walk away after treatment, without any money changing hands. While hospital staff demand from us drivers licenses and Social Security cards. Soon a letter at the door will demand payment, with the addition uncompensated care for illegal aliens tacked-on. You will very shortly be hounded by unscrupulous debt collectors, money grabbing attorneys ready to place liens on your home. Today, you cannot even file for bankruptcy without consequences that doesn’t relieve you of demanding hospitals. If that isn’t enough money is being extorted from us that overrides federal law, giving the children of foreign nationals in state tuition in colleges–when our own native born citizen children must pay the full amount?

    Certain Governors, Mayors, judges and other elected officials have tried to blacklist E-Verify, as monetary favors for Wall Street and a whole volume of organizations such as the Catholic church, other religious groups, unions, ACLU, La Raza and open border extremists who profit from illegal immigration. Governor Rick Perry of Texas would eliminate the border wall and believes in supporting welfare and health care treatment for foreign nations and their families costing Texans billions. American workers, citizens and legal residents must demand that E-Verify becomes permanent, fully funded and where no business remains untouched? There should be a timetable of ICE audits and lightening raids, that can even return after a month or two. Any patriotic American can call ICE and report unscrupulous companies using illegal labor. Its the duty of every law abiding citizen or resident. That anybody hiring illegal immigrants after E-Verify can detect fraudulent documentation as the computer program in the immediate future, should go to prison as they are aiding and abetting illegal labor stealing American jobs. SO E-VERIFY REJECTS YOUR JOB APPLICATION? GO TO THE SOCIAL SECURITY AGENCY–TO STRAIGHTEN THE APP OUT? A good Example of not statewide using E-Verify is the SANCTUARY STATE OF CALIFORNIA–THE STATE IS NOW BROKE.

    THE LAW SHOULD ALSO BE CHANGED MAKING ILLEGAL ENTRY INTO THE US A FELONY, instead of a slap on the wrist. Only American voters can stop these travesties of our immigration system. We don’t need anymore cheap labor, as we have 15 million of our population jobless. We need a “points System” for highly skilled imported labor. We need checks and balances so immigration lawyers cannot cheat the system. We need the 1986 Immigration law enforced, with perhaps new amendments. Tell these corrupt lawmakers in Washington and your states–WHAT YOU WANT–NOT WHAT THEIR BUSINESS BENEFICIARIES WANT? The Washington toilet must be emptied, for our own survival. Call your Representative at 202-224-3121 and demand rigid immigration enforcement.

    In addition E-Verify will have the capability to check fraud of drivers licenses, vehicular registrations, home mortgages, welfare and health care. The day is coming when fraudulent documentation will be a thing of the past, with cross-referencing with E-Verification. Another fact is that Homeland Security is inquiring into using ITIN IRS records.

    The cost to the American people for supporting illegal immigrant families is unimaginable. Read the truth about corruption and the illegal immigration occupation of our country at NUMBERSUSA, JUDICIALWATCH, IMMIGRATIONBUZZ, RIGHTSIDENEWS & DIRECTORBLUE.
