Revisit the 10th Amendment
The over-stepping, unconstitutional actions of the federal government have finally gotten the attention of state legislators in 21 states declaring sovereignty under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

The federal government over-stepping their constitutional boundaries is nothing new in fact, it can be traced back to the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. Couple that with the 16th Amendment, instituting the Marxist progressive income tax, and we have the start, or should I say the beginning of the end of the United States of America.

The last 8 years gave us incredible federal meddling in what should be state issues and now with the approaching $10 trillion of stolen taxpayer money by the world central banks in the form of the banker bailout bill, the new so-called stimulus bill, and down right extortion from the federal government, the states have had enough.

According the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution: "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." Furthermore, the only three responsibilities the federal government has are to protect the sovereignty of the United States of America (protect our borders and run the military), and to coin, distribute, and value our currency. As far as I can see, the federal government is 1 out-of 3.

One of the biggest problems with the federal government imposing unconstitutional controls over the states is their offering federal taxpayer funds only if the respective states adopt certain federal mandates. For example, the state of Missouri was supposed to receive $17 million in federal taxpayer funds for road construction, however said funds are being withheld until Missouri passes a mandatory seal belt law. Whether you agree with a mandatory seat belt law or not, it is not the federal government's role to tell a state what laws it should pass. The 10th Amendment is very clear is this matter.
Now remember ladies and gentlemen declaring sovereignty is not suceeding. The 21 states are simply telling the federal government to keep their noses out of state business. Will the states who make such a declaration be shooting themselves in the foot? The problem with a lot of these federal mandates and programs forced upon the states by the federal government is the states only receive a portion of the funds necessary to fund said programs or mandates. When the economy was rolling along everyone turned a blind eye, but now this type of extortion is financially killing state budgets.

The current economic spending bill, which by the way was not read by any member of Congress, does the same thing. As the days pass since President Obama signed this joke of a bill, people are now starting to read the bill and are discovering this so-called stimulus bill will do little more than increase the debt load of the American taxpayer.

The only way we are going to stop the over-reaching and continued expansion of the federal government is to support our state legislators in standing up to the federal government. Another opinion on state sovereignty has been that these declarations will serve little purpose unless the 16th Amendment (the progressive income tax) and the 17th Amendment (the Federal Reserve Act of 1913) are repealed. I would love nothing more than for that to occur, but I also believe the federal government must be made to understand that we are serious about regaining state's rights under the U.S. Constitution. "To suppose that any form of government will secure liberty or happiness without any virtue in the people, is a chimerical idea." James Madison

"Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny." Thomas Jefferson
