The Locker Room

Reviving the Tenth Amendment

Posted by George Leef at 08:45 AM

Momentum is building in some states to do that, as this article shows.

The Tenth Amendment says that unless the Constitution has specifically given some issue to the feds, it is reserved to the states or the people. Despite what the constitutional ignoramuses say about the unbridled powers under the commerce and general welfare clauses, very few matters are reserved to the federal government. If the feds could not mandate national uniformity on issues where they have no business intruding, a whole lot of our current problems would not exist.

Anyone in the NC General Assembly interested in trying to put the brakes on the runaway train of federal power?
