I could be wrong, but I think Beck is trying to get people involved on ALL levels, not just the national level.
I also think he would be VERY open to joining this 10th Amendment effort if approached. I came across this site by accident and was, frankly, amazed at how stupid I have been until now. Sure, I was all for the 10th Amendment being followed (as Beck has said he is), but it never occurred to me that doing that *and nothing else* solves almost all of our problems (ending the Fed is a close second). I believe finding a way to implement a proper understanding of the 10th Amendment is the single most important thing any of us (including Glenn Beck) can do to save the country. What is needed is more exposure for the effort, and Beck is the perfect avenue for that. Instead of criticizing him for not going far enough, we need to encourage him to go further and take up this cause. If we can get his ear, I think we'll get his assistance.
Rick - an interesting point. I do believe it's essential to encourage people - to give them positive feedback and keep them moving in the right direction. That's a must with Beck. I also feel it's essential to point out shortcomings, and I think Josh made a pretty good case here in his post.
But - I can absolutely assure you that Glenn Beck and his entire team are well-aware of the 10th Amendment movement. He's cited the Tenth Amendment Center in a number of his reports on Fox News Channel, our PR people have been in contact with his team repeatedly with phone calls, emails and press releases, and I've personally talked with his producers a number of times regarding a potential interview on either his radio or his TV show. Just hasn't happened yet.
So, if you want the 10th Amendment movement to grow, and believe that Beck is in a position to help make that happen - get on the phone or send an email to let him know that you want this issue discussed, and that you want him to interview someone from here at the Tenth Amendment Center!
I don't think he is as interested in this as we'd hope. Fox news disappoints me. That network and its programs are too entrenched in national politics. It is where they get their publicity, acclaim and money. They could just about care less when it comes to states' rights. It provides no avenues for them to sway national policy. They have as much stake in trying to control the nation as the leftist media outlets. That's why, over there, they soft-peddle the hypocrisy that broke the GOP and still press along with their GOP-promoting agendas.
I certainly prefer Fox over MSNBC and CNN, but in the end, I have concluded that Fox is still "one of them." At best, it represents the lesser of two evils.
Good luck getting Fox on board. I've tried, as well.
