Now that we are approaching a majority of states opposing state health care exchanges, is the fact that the states have rights starting to catch on? Would success of striking down ”Obamacare” encourage states to take further action against all unconstitutional acts made by the federal government?
With states passing and/or amending their own state constitutions with such things as, health care freedom acts, firearm freedom acts, changing laws on marijuana use both medical and recreational, the thought of states completely governing themselves where the federal government doesn’t have the enumerated powers stated in the constitution is growing! But why is this such a “new idea?” This is exactly what our founding fathers intended for this country. They expressed this in their writings, the declaration of independence, the articles of confederation and the constitution would have never been ratified without the bill of rights.
What people are starting to realize is that there is no such thing as a sovereign government at any level and that people are in fact the only sovereigns. That the state is just a middle man between the people and the federal government. That the states entered into a “contract” with the federal government but also have the option to leave from the “contract” at any point if the people feel it’s necessary. Also that everyone in government is elected by and works for the people and they are supposed to represent them regardless if those representatives agree with the people or not.Details
