Working for liberty and freedom for my future children and grandchildren has been a gratifying endeavor since it began for me years ago. I thought I was on the right track, campaigning for a National candidate that I thought was a real statesman and champion for liberty then as I do now, but my work for said candidate left me with a sense that I was spitting into the wind when all was said and done. I left that campaign with a sense that something else would come along, an effort much broader and with a greater capacity for achieving liberty in my lifetime.
What I sensed then has arrived and it is called the 10th Amendment movement.
Our efforts as ‘Tenthers’, or de-centralizers as I sometimes call our ranks, differs from the standard format of political struggle in many significant aspects, which are important to keep in mind as we go about this important fight.
One of the first things I welcomed upon learning about the 10th and state sovereignty was an end to the partisan bickering between left and right that was surely not in the founder’s vision. They made no allowance for a 2 party system and I think we can clearly see why at this stage. The Tenthers are liberals, conservatives and everything in between, including people who are normally not interested in politics whatsoever. The truth rings true, and I think it’s easy for normal, every day people to see that centralization just doesn’t work.
It’s easy to define goals for a candidate (win the race), but sometimes movements without a candidate as a focal point lack a tangible objective. With the 10th movement, there is indeed a very clear goal- re-establishment of sovereignty for all of the 50 states.
No Fear Mongering
I don’t know about you, but I’m done with feeling scared out of my pajamas. What I have encountered thus far in all of my dealings with those involved with the 10th are people who are not scared, but rather calmly and diligently work towards our goal. Fear is for slaves and serfs, and is a state not necessary to motivate those fighting for de-centralization.
If you are new to the movement, please do your best to keep an open mind to the fact that this camp is not political business as usual, but rather a coalition of genuine patriots looking for a restoration of the qualities and ideals central to the creation of our republic.
