First we were called racists, now we’re something else because we demand that the government follow the constitution – every issue, every time. No exceptions, no excuses.

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 with the movement that some have called ’10th-ers,’ people who support the 10th Amendment as a vehicle for obstructing programs sponsored by the federal government, like health care reform.” [emphasis added]

Well, he’s right about one thing – as a Tenther, I’m proud to say that I’d like to obstruct everything that D.C. does that’s outside the scope of their constitutionally-delegated powers. Like, say, the drug war, national health care, bankster bailouts, cap and trade, federal definitions of marriage, waging war without congressional declaration, federal education standards, and the list could go on and on….and on.
