X amendment center

In its original design, the Constitutiona recognized the people as the soveirgns. They, in turn, created local and state governments to protect their interests. The states DELEGATED certian clearly-defined powers to the federal government. The key word here is “delegated”, meaning they were on loan until which time the states withdrew their loan(s).

You can see clearly from the trashed tatters of our free country and its constitution that the time to withdraw that loan is overdue.

The Tenth Amendment Center is a wealth of knowledge, background and action on that topic.

It is one of the most powerful and important activist avenues that we should be seriously pursuing today.

The Tenth Amendment Center’s website on tracking relevant state legislation is well worth following and supporting. The information below is from it. At their web page you can see the state of affairs – and much of it is good news, but needing support.

10th Amendment
The 10th Amendment Movement is an effort to push back against unconstitutional federal laws and regulations on a state level. The principle is known as “nullification,” and was advised by many prominent founders.

Nullification: When a state “nullifies” a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or “non-effective,” within the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as that state is concerned

History of Nullification: While the media generally portrays nullification as being solely aligned with the efforts of the nullifiers of the South and the Civil War, this is certainly false, and reeks of misinformation. Nullification has a long history in the American tradition and has been invoked in support of free speech, in opposition to war and fugitive slave laws, and more. Read more on this history here.
