Would it make sense for the states to be able to repeal a Federal law if 2/3rds of them thought it unconstitutional?

Are We Really the Land of the Free, Or Is It a Charade?

Guy with LaptopI’m beginning to wonder if we’re living in the middle of a change in our country, only because we’re living in it we don’t see the change.  We now live in a country that has the technology to allow the President of the United States to have a kill list that he can give to people in a office building who can use real life drones like a computer game to take out people in far off places—or American citizens.

We have people eavesdropping on conversations and reading e-mails from citizens that they were not supposed to, that they did not have permission to read, and yet ensnaring people—regardless of whether what they did was wrong.

Yesterday the U.S. House did something that it has never done in all of its years of existence.  For an hour and a half, Representatives read the entire U.S. Constitution.

One would think it would have been uneventful—but that’s hoping for too much.

Congress Really Doesn’t Care If It’s Constitutional

November 29th, 2009 Viewed 2211 times

When a person is brought into an office in the Federal Government– from the President down to the Senators and Congressmen– they are administered an oath of office that includes upholding and defending the Constitution.  And it seems that’s the last time that they actually think about it.

After that oath, everything becomes all about what they can do– the power that they have achieved through their office.  It becomes about “what I wanted to do” and “what I tried to do” more than doing what’s best for the country.

I bet you didn’t know it needed defending?

The Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states:

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.

This is a statement made by the Federal Government about the extent of its power and where its power ends.  It was by this Amendment (before the 14th) that made it so that states had established religions even when the Federal Government could not.

It is also by this amendment that many states are taking more actions to protect themselves from the actions of the Federal Government.

War

Alone amongst the dead header

It was never meant to be entered into lightly, but only when the country was in agreement.  The Founders knew that it would take time to vote to go to War, and therefore War would be entered into only if there was a large consensus.  While it’s true that no Founder envisioned attack by air, suitcase radiation bombs, etc., it’s also true that there was a procedure put into place that was supposed to be followed.
