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. Of course, it was done in the context of describing us tenthers as “out-there,” but when you’re as unappreciated as the Constitution is these days, any press is good press. Later,…

Nullification In the News: Get Used to It

As predicted, Congressional passage of President Obama’s sweeping health insurance “reform” bill has not ended the constitutional debate between federal and state authority. On the contrary, America seems poised to confront those issues directly, and with a force not seen in over a century. As with the the first time around, those who shill for centralized power do so at the expense of…

Dora the Census Explorer

Children, spy on your family. BTW, funny to see the constant stress in census propaganda about “getting good things for our town, like day care centers and schools.” That is, in return for your written nudo-scan, politically connected businessmen can get richer constructing more federal anti-family indoctrination halls at your expense. What a deal! (Thanks…

The Politics of Obammunism

The Obammunist’s socialized health care legislation promises to cut Medicare spending by hundreds of billions of dollars while increasing Medicare spending by hundreds of billions. At least half of all Medicare enrollees vote Republican; almost all Medicaid enrollees vote Democrat. This is why the Obammunists are so euphoric today. Wicked Witch Pelosi (D-Botox) says this…

Brian Melendez, head of the DFL party in Minnesota, has this to say in a recent interview with MN public radio: “The tea party tends to identify themselves…

Good News: Taxes Are Voluntary

And you thought you had to pay them? Ridiculous! Senator Harry Reid says, “the government doesn’t force you to pay taxes.” Reid says that he “doesn’t accept the phraseology” that the government “forcefully takes money from you.” Really, I am not joking. Oh … and he says that the reason our system is called a…

Smearing Oath Keepers

Mother Jones and The New York Times have published substance-free attack pieces on the constitutionalist organization Oath Keepers (OK). And what are Oath Keepers guilty of? Vowing that they will refuse to violate Civil Liberties! Check out their 10 orders they won’t follow. The only one I could see the left getting upset about is…

American Thinker’s Curious Coverage of Nullification

J. Robert Smith writes A Curious Dalliance with Nullification at American Thinker today.  By using three citations from a single page in a single book, he determines that the idea of nullification is mistaken and that those of us who support nullification as a remedy to federal overreach are misguided.  Here are the the article…

The Tenthers

Nolan Finley is a very conventional columnist for the Detroit News. Nolan has just published a very good column (for the most part) on the Tenth Amendment movement. However, he just has to get in that one little comment that separates him from the radical states’ rights movement (radical … meaning scholarly and “no surrender”):…

Centralizers vs Tenthers on the Economy

“If only D.C. were more like Bejing!” In an article that could have easily been entitled “Abolish the States,” Harold Meyerson of The American Prospect, laments the ways the states have prevented the bureaucrats in D.C. from centralizing even more power. Why? Because the states aren’t draining wealth from their citizens fast enough as the…
