“Our Colonial ancestors petitioned and pleaded with King George III to get his boot off their necks. He ignored their pleas, and in 1776, they rightfully declared unilateral independence and went to war. Today it’s the same story except Congress is the one usurping the rights of the people and the states, making King George’s actions look mild in comparison. Our constitutional ignorance – perhaps contempt, coupled with the fact that we’ve become a nation of wimps, sissies and supplicants – has made us easy prey for Washington’s tyrannical forces. But that might be changing a bit. There are rumblings of a long overdue re-emergence of Americans’ characteristic spirit of rebellion.” ~ Walter Williams Christian Science Monitor
States rebel against Washington
The pushback against federal power
began under Bush,
but may now be accelerating.
“If you set up the principle where the federal government can do everything, then, yes, eventually they will do everything. If not, where’s the line they can’t cross?” says Michael Boldin, president of the Tenth Amendment Center in Los Angeles. “That’s the Constitution, I believe.” ~ Michael Boldin
