A Nullification Lesson from the Articles of Confederation

This article deals with the reality of the Federal Government needing our states personnel and money in order to make their policies work. It is time we the people take back our rights from the Feds who have overstepped their authority. The 10th Amendment to the Constitution states: “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”

The problems facing the United States under the Articles of Confederation provide a nullification lesson for today. When states refuse to cooperate, the central government can’t get a whole l…

Five Felony Counts?

There is a news story that really bothers me. A wounded Staff Sergeant with 10 years in the military, medically discharged and now working at Ft. Drum in New York State is arrested for possession of 5 magazines for his AR15 which he legally owned, but in New York State, under their old law, you could not have a magazine that would hold more than 10 rounds. Now if you did it was a FELONY now a magazine, that is empty, is just a magazine. Even if it was full of bullets it was still not going to hurt anyone, so, how could this be a felony?

Of course I left New York State in 1976 and have never looked back, it is a haven for leftists and socialists, and being a conservative it was hard to get work in that state. The only time I went back, I did so to bury my Dad and left as soon as possible after the funeral. New York is a depressing place, it is all gray and dingy, where I grew up is now all apartments and parking lots. Cement all over the place, even where we used to play stick ball is gone. The Church I used to attend as a kid growing up, now has an 8 foot high chain link fence around it and a locked gate. Why would anyone want to live in a place where even a church has to be locked behind a fence?

Now at the same time we have this “News” anchor, David Gregory, who knew he was breaking the law in Washington D. C. when he flashed a 30 round magazine on national TV. Of course they will not prosecute him, he is a “Star” and a “Newsman” so he is exempt from prosecution. A wounded veteran, a man who has had his license to carry taken away from him, even though he has not been convicted of any crime as of yet. The sheriff confiscated his handguns, he has sold everything he could so he could pay his legal bills, and they want to put this man in prison for having in his possession 5 magazines with no bullets. Now if he had those magazines on Ft. Drum, he would have been legal, but they arrested him with them as he tried to sell them. It doesn’t say how they knew he was doing that, or where it was that he was trying to sell them.

So, a war hero, wounded in action, and working for the Dept. of Defense as a civilian, is arrested and faces prison time, and if convicted will lose his job even if he doesn’t go to prison, but the suit the “Newsman” who sits behind a desk and reads the news, he can do as he pleases, even break the law and nothing will be done to him. So, isn’t it nice to live in the Socialist Republic of New York? Thank heavens I live in Texas where people are still free to pursue happiness, to carry (concealed of course) and to be able to protect themselves and their property. Of course we do have the Socialist City of Austin, but, we don’t have to go there so I guess it is OK as long as it stays there.

You would think that people would wake up and smell the coffee, that they would begin to see that the government is taking away their rights to be a free people. The Feds are constantly attacking the First Amendment, and ignoring the 10th. They want to put drones in our skies so they can track the movements of people to make sure we aren’t going to do something they don’t like. Our President acts more like a dictator ignoring the congress and ruling by executive orders. Janet Napolitano, Homeland Security Chief has stated that terrorists are those people who are veterans (military), or those who disagree with the government, and those who join the militia. Not only that but these people are stock piling ammunition they have ordered 1.6 billion rounds of hollow point bullets. Hello? What is that all about, WAKE UP AMERICA.

Atheists want to shut down prayer group

In Congress there are a group of men and women who have formed themselves into what is known as the Congressional Prayer Group. A group calling itself the “American Humanist Association”, has sent a letter to incoming freshman congresspersons to not join with the prayer group.

I find myself quite annoyed because this group wants to censor Christians, but wants to be able to use their own first amendment rights to say what they please. I think it is high time that the Courts stop playing footsie with these haters, and begin to actually read the Constitution rather than using some letter that Jefferson sent to a State Baptist Association. The 1st Amendment is very clear, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;” Thomas Jefferson wrote a letter to a group of Baptists who were afraid that the Federal Gov’t would pass a law outlawing their church. There were two reasons that Jefferson said what he did. One: the First Amendment says that Congress may not pass any law of the sort. Two This was a States Rights issue since we also have another amendment – the 10th which says that if the Constitution does not give the Federal Gov’t the power to regulate, that power belongs to the States or to the people.

Amendment 10 – Powers of the States and People. Ratified 12/15/1791.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Actually many of the States kept their “State” churches well into the 1800’s and that was their right to do so. They did not however stop people from worshipping as they wished, in most cases. So here we are with a States Rights issue that the courts have perverted and made into a Federal issue with a ruling based on a letter written by a man who had nothing to do with writing the Constitution in the first place. The states have the right to nullify Federal actions which are unconstitutional, including this idiocy about religion and whether or not it can be practiced in public or not.

What do you think? Should the states begin using the power of nullification to right the ship of state?
