Whether Secession Or Nullification, We All Want Freedom And Independence

There’s a controversy brewing in Texas. It is a controversy over secession or what some are calling nullification. Some see only secession as the end to government intrusion in our lives while others more hopefully believe that the union should remain intact and that the tenth amendment can be used to force the federal government to revert back to its rightful role. Both are probably right, but for different reasons.

If one were to read the Constitution for the first time; coming here from another planet; he would probably ask why we stopped using that document. Those of us who have lived on this planet and in this nation for all or most of our lives have not seen the gradual erosion of the Constitution. In my seventy plus years on this earth, I have watched as individual freedom was chipped away little by little, and it started before I was born. There is no one alive today who can say they have lived under a truly constitutional government, even though we have not noticed how it was being changed.

The story continues …..
