Do It Right Now for the Constitution and Liberty


From the 10th Amendment Center

What You Can Do Right Now for the Constitution and Liberty

From mandates to milk. From weed to war. And everything in between. Very little of what the federal government does is authorized by the Constitution.

While the Constitution is clear that the federal government is one of limited, delegated powers – in practice, without popular resistance, the federal government people do whatever they please. They tell us we have to buy a health insurance plan, what size toilet we can have, and what kind of light bulbs we can buy. They read your emails, listen to your phone calls, monitor your bank accounts – and even claim the power to arrest and detain you indefinitely, without due process.

For far too long, the United States Federal Government has deployed troops to every corner of the world, waged offensive wars without a declaration by Congress, silenced and kidnapped its enemies, authorized the torture of prisoners, engaged in espionage, imposed crippling embargoes, pillaged our resources, taken our property, and destroyed our economy and our environment.

On top of it all, these government people tell us – the sovereign people – what IT has the legal authority to do, instead of the other way around.

And it hasn’t mattered what political party has been in power or what individual has occupied the White House. Year in and year out – federal power always grows and your liberty is always worse off.

So for those of you who believe that the path to the Constitution and your liberty is not through the federal government – but instead through Jefferson, Madison…..and other state capitols around the country – here’s a few steps that you can take right now.
