This Sunday, Bryce Shonka and myself will be speaking about the 10th Amendment and Nullification to a group in Woodland Hills, CA (just north of Malibu).  Also confirmed for the event are a number of 2010 candidates, along with Senate candidate, Chuck DeVore.

Rachel Maddow’s Blog Targets VA Tenthers

I guess we should be pleased; Rachel Maddow’s blog reads the Virginia Tenth Amendment Center. It’s true, her blog linked to a picture we posted from the January 18th Lobby Day.

Tenthers: We’re Making Some Noise

Even the New York Times (which was kind to me and the Tenth Amendment Center in a few articles this past year) thinks that we “Tenthers” have been garnering some attention of late. In his “Buzzwords of 2009” article, Grant Barrett considers less than 50 words, including “Government Motors,” “Octomom,” “Public Option,” and our beloved…
