They swore an Oath they never intended to keep.
The 10th Amendment is the Constitution,
and it falls or stands on the Oath of Office.
We have a 10th Amendment right to a federal government restrained by the Constitution, as well as to States and local governments that protect us when it is not.
If the Constitution is the law that binds the Feds, then the federal government is breaking the law.
The Constitution cannot be both a contract and not a contract at the same time.
To call the Constitution a “growing document” causes it to mean whatever any group wants it to mean in any given situation and at any given time, which means that it means nothing at all.
- Amendments alone can modify the Constitution
- Any “growth” cannot reduce our Liberty
- The Supreme Court is as restrained by the Constitution as the rest of the Federal Government
- Nullification is woven throughout every part of the American political system, through the Separation of Powers or Federal employees holding each other accountable, but resides most importantly in the hands of the States and the People.
Leftists in both parties do not want us to know about our 10th Amendment right. They are terrified we will have this conversation.
That tells us exactly what we must do.
So that our nation will know the law, we are creating a
Constitutional Sanctuary County
LANCASTER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA
They swore an oath to hold this line, and no other:
“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
If they feel free to break the law, we are certainly free to restore it.
“When so ever the General (Federal) Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.” – Thomas Jefferson
For those who need permission to be free…
Marbury v. Madison (1803) (Marshall, C. J.) “The powers of the legislature are defined, and limited; and that those limits may not be mistaken, or forgotten, the Constitution is written.”
If the Oath of Office means nothing, then the Constitution they swore to obey and defend means nothing. Our most important law has no one to enforce it.
“The Tenth Amendment is the foundation of the Constitution.” – Thomas Jefferson
Sovereignty does not belong in the hands of a president or congress or the Supreme Court…
“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce. … The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives and liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State.” – James Madison, Author of the Constitution
Too many tell the lie that there is a clause where there is actually a restriction…
“With respect to the words ‘general welfare,’ I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.” – James Madison, Author of the Constitution
What good is an oath of office when we have over 60 million illegal and unlawful federal rules, laws, regulations, taxes, fees, programs, and agencies?
Every act, with only a few modern exceptions, that the Feds are engaged in can and should be performed by the States, and would be except that there are so many men and women that swear an oath they never intended, and refuse, to keep.
The States are capable of doing everything the Feds have taken from them.
Our States are not counties within a nation. They are nations united for defense and for trade alone.
“The Constitution is not an instrument for the government to restrain the people, it is an instrument for the people to restrain the government — lest it come to dominate our lives and interests.” – Unknown
The wall that is our Constitution cannot stand if the men and women that are sworn to guard it will not do so or even acknowledge that they must do so.
Things are not all bad, however.
