The Powers Not Delegated: Health Care Nullification

The 10th Amendment

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.

The 10th Amendment neither adds to nor subtracts from the US Constitution. It simply gives any politicians that would subvert the constitution with laws a heads up: Federal powers are limited.

Much to the consternation of Congressional Democrats, who are attempting to flex the muscles specifically denied to them by the Constitution, many states are lining up to peacefully and legally nullify the stream of power grabbing legislation headed our way.

The 10th Amendment Center has a great post on the efforts by states to nullify the unconstitutional laws, especially the Health Reform Legislation:

Regarding nullification and health care, there’s already a growing movement right now. Led by Arizona, voters in a number of states may get a chance to approve State Constitutional Amendments in 2010 that would effectively ban national health care in their states. Our sources here at the Tenth Amendment Center indicate to us that we should expect to see 20-25 states consider such legislation in 2010.

20 States resisting DC can do what calling, marching, yelling, faxing, and emailing has almost never done. Stop the feds dead in their tracks.

During the last couple of decades, much legislation has been enacted by Washington that is simply unconstitutional. But if it is not challenged, it has the same effect as being constitutional.

Right now, there is a clear and present danger emanating from our elected officials in D.C. One that must be stopped, in the long term at the ballot box, but in the short term by nullification.

When elected officials stop listening to the electorate and go on an unprecedented power grab, it is the duty of all Americans to use whatever legal means are necessary to protect the Constitution and continue the form of government that has worked for over 200 years.

    Mondays are the worst day for me to leave my business, but I will be in Richmond on the 18th with the Tea Parties lobbying our representatives. Wouldn’t miss it. I was in DC on 9.12, and for Michele Bachmann’s protest and for Code Red. We need to make the same kind of show in Richmond.

    We have had weeks of SNOW in Central Virginia, but decades of SNOW JOBS of another sort. The GOOD NEWS is that Democrats at all levels are facilitating the task of re-educating a populace that has been indoctrinated in government schools. They are pissing People off, and folks are actually beginning to learn what it was that started in 1776. As Franklin replied, when asked what kind of government they had created, “A Republic, if you can keep it.” The only possible way for that to happen is for the People to be the Watch Dogs. In Virginia, we are beginning on that process by replacing Tom Periello with Michael McPadden in the 5th District. whose campaign is based upon — here’s a new concept — Liberty, and Personal Responsibility. Check out his website at
    We have had a potential disaster forced upon us in the 5th district, but we are going to turn lemons into lemonade. WE are not going to tolerate a ridiculous situation in which the party nominee could win less than 20% of the total vote, with 80% of the vote being solidly conservative, but split 6 ways. There is a growing movement in the 5th district for a CONSERVATIVE CONVENTION to select OUR nominee who will face Robert Hurt in the primary. Please go to McPadden’s website. Check him out.
    The New Right starts in the 5th District. LIBERTY WINS!~

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
