The debates that one sees in the comments sections and forums these days is a fascinating mix. Everyone in DC sat down in a new chair 2 years ago and so it’s easy to get the sense that our political world is in flux, with progressives bashing Obama and conservatives nodding their heads at the [...]
Who sits at the top of the food chain in the American system of governance? Is it the US Supreme Court? Is it Congress? If you don’t know the answer, just watch this video! This is a 10 minute clip from an event in Tulare, CA. Tulare has been affected by the Federal order to [...]
In part two of our Tenth Amendment Forum coverage, we focus on California Gubernatorial candidate Chelene Nightingale. Like the Ron Paul presidential campaign three years ago, Nightingale’s message has resonated in social and alternative media. CATAC’s Bryce Shonka followed Nightingale with the event’s final statement. Behind the Tenth Amendment Forum was a collaboration between Gene [...]
At Sunday’s Tenth Amendment Forum in Woodland Hills, US Senate candidate Chuck DeVore and Tenth Amendment Center founder Michael Boldin delivered speeches on state sovereignty and the Tenth Amendment. DeVore explained why politicans must stand behind the constitution with consistency, even when they disagree with the social policy that might result. Boldin covered nullification- in [...]
A massive movement continues to build momentum as those unwilling to submit to unconstitutional Federal demands gather in huge numbers, but what kinds of people are these? The establishment media would have us believe that the resistance is only a ‘Republican scheme’, but a new report by The Winston Group suggests that 40% of those [...]
Examples of centralized control are spoken of frequently- Cuba, USSR and China are the most common. While it is important to know what not to do as a people, it is even more important to study examples of decentralized nations and the practical benefits of limited, local governance. Switzerland is one such place, as described [...]
Here’s a blog post I found, or at least the part that relates to California Tenth Amendment Center: “So, will the Teabaggers who support “State’s Rights” even to the point of secession over health care take to the streets and defend California should it legalize marijuana for recreational use?” I can’t speak for the ‘Teabaggers’, [...]
Will Cardoza and Jim Costa were opposed to the national health care plan last week, but oh how quickly things can change in Washington DC. This week, after Federal agencies lifted a controversial ban that had deprived Central Valley farmers of their essential water supply, Cardoza and Costa were suddenly found amongst the ‘yes’ voters [...]
Atlanta, Georgia (TAC) March 1, 2010 For two days last week, candidates for both state and federal offices in the 2010 elections gathered together to discuss strategies for upholding a strict interpretation of the 10th Amendment, which states, “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the [...]
While we could easily add more, this list is pretty much the ultimate guide for you – read them at your convenience and leave questions in the form of a comment, so we can discuss.
The Central Valley’s water dilemma puts our food supply in jeopardy, not to mention the constitutional relationship between State and Federal government. The big question here- Who gets to make decisions about California’s water and on what grounds? Read the article HERE Consider that the judicial solution holds that if the fish population is declining, we [...]
Every level of centralized government that is broken down gives average Americans more control over what they put in their bodies, where they go and how they choose to spend their earnings. Every layer of authoritarian control traps within it a bevy of natural rights and we are quite simply empowering average people to take back what is their birthright.
Does it seem cold to anyone else right now? I’m sure the answer is yes. More signs that the sub zero temperatures have extended as far down as hell appeared today, or at least what I read in the today’s Huffington Post seemed equally shocking. In Tony Blankley’s latest piece for The Huffington Post he took [...]
“What we need is Hope 2.0: the realization that our system is too broken to be fixed by politicians, however well intentioned – that change is going to have to come from outside Washington.” -Arianna Huffington 1/19/10
Here’s a good article worth resurrecting, written by Tom DeWeese: During his six-year reign of terror, Bill Clinton has signed no less that 254 Executive Orders. To date, not one has been challenged by the United States Congress. Congressional silence has led Clinton to stronger, bolder action in his carefree drive to fulfill his liberal [...]
None of the men and women at that podium, grinning like kids in a candy shop, seemed to realize that what they were really doing. Of course, $700 million in school funding sounds great on the surface, but along with the money comes something that was not mentioned by the legislators- increased Federal control of California classrooms and further erosion of California’s status as a sovereign state.
Now that the Senate has voted to pass National Health Care legislation and we’re one step closer to a DC mandate, many Americans are experiencing an even greater sense of frustration and despair. “All is lost…” has been tweeted more than a few times, but I am happy to write these lines: Nothing is lost. [...]
“…all waters subject to the ebb and flow of the tide, the territorial seas, and all interstate and intrastate waters and their tributaries, including lakes, rivers, streams (including intermittent streams), mudflats, sandflats, wetlands, sloughs, prairie potholes, wet meadows, playa lakes, natural ponds, and all impoundments of the foregoing, to the fullest extent that these waters, or activities affecting them, are subject to the legislative power of Congress under the Constitution.”
“War is peace.” Sounds like something from a book I read once. You remember the one, where an entire society gives up their liberty and freedom, coaxed by a central government promising protection and comfort?
The fact that DC politicians, who care only for themselves and increasing their own power, have the audacity to involve themselves in a choice as personal as marriage should be an affront to anyone who values liberty and individual freedom.
A 10th Amendment Primer for Those Who Lean Left Once upon a time I eagerly tuned in to MSNBC on a nightly basis. I knew that there was something hideously wrong with the direction our country was in and at that time I believed that “if only Bush had not been elected president, none of [...]
One thing that the sovereignty movement has lacked during it’s surge these past few months has been proportionate participation from both sides of the political spectrum, a requirement for any successful non-partisan movement.
