We’ve got some exciting plans here in Utah for how to reassert and reinforce the 10th amendment, and are looking forward to expanding our volunteer base and organizational structure to make that happen. With the excellent foundation that Gary Wood has laid so far as State Coordinator, starting today I’ll now be filling that role (and Gary’s big shoes). Gary will be our Educational Advisor and we’re really looking forward to his continued input and direction in helping us make more Utahns aware of the importance of the 10th amendment.

Perhaps a brief bio would be beneficial. I’m a long-time advocate and defender of the U.S. Constitution and the 10th amendment specifically, having argued through various mediums the need for states to assert their sovereignty and chain down the federal government. I’m mostly known for my blog, but also use Facebook, Twitter, and other networks to spread the message. Most recently, I founded the Utah Nullification Project to raise money and buy a copy of Tom Woods’ new book for every Utah state legislator. Our hope is that these public servants read/skim the material and better understand the history of and present need for nullification. (We’re almost to our goal, so donate today if you’re able!)

I’m really excited to take the reigns now for the Tenth Amendment Center here in Utah, and hope that we can all work together to find the best and most effective way of standing up to the federal government and retaining our rights. If you have any ideas as we move forward, or would like to volunteer in whatever capacity you feel most capable in, please contact me so we enhance our efforts and be successful!

My thanks again to Gary for his impressive work so far. Let’s make the rest of 2010 a great year for the 10th amendment!
