The Road to Decentralization

The heat is rising and the stakes are certainly high as our state sovereignty movement continues to grow, reflecting the mainstream nature of the principles that bind us as lovers of liberty and natural rights.

As the movement grows, so have charges from the supporters of centralized government, framing the sovereignty movement as many things. Those in the corporate media seek to characterize our cause in a disparaging light- some say that we are simply a radical wing of the republican party, others claim that we are corporate operatives seeking only to damage the Democratic momentum.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

With Divided Power Comes Great Responsibility

When one examines the mindset of those who support a centralized government structure, there is one common element that is found in both the Neo-Conservative model and the current socialist regime- fear.

During the W Bush years, many who sought protection from what they feared were willing to cede liberty and freedom in exchange for a perceived protection from bad things.  Fearful Americans abided as wonton attacks on our constitutional rights were made right out in the open

Another Victory for the States

Skeptical statists will tell you that the 10th Amendment doesn’t have teeth, that is has not been backed by the the Supreme Court, that we who are rallying behind it are a silly novelty.  They are greatly missing the point.

The Tenth Amendment movement does not wait for approval from Federal lawmakers or courts to be validated, nor does it need to.  The first example in the past decade of state sovereignty scoring a victory without official acknowledgement from DC came when the REAL ID program (Papers please…) came to a grinding halt after multiple states simply said they wouldn’t do it.

What was the response of all powerful Federal behemoth to such insolence?  Not much at all really.

There were no tanks rolling down the streets, no court decisions, no legislative debate- REAL ID simply went away quietly once the states asserted their rightful position under the 10th Amendment to nullify an unconstitutional Federal move.
