The States Can Stop Washington DC

February 22, 2012
Sheriff Richard Mack, Tenth Amendment Center

By now we have all heard the cliches and seen the posters from the “Tea Parties” espousing freedom, less government, and perhaps most of all, how the federal government had better back off trying to shove their national healthcare down our otherwise healthy throats. The truth of the matter is all the slogans of “Don’t Tread On Me” or “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death” or “We’re Mad As Hell And We’re Not Taking It Anymore,” don’t mean a thing when compared to reality; the real and actual answer to all the protests, marches, and outrage. The answer is in our own backyards! The States can stop every bit of it! That’s right, the individual States can stop “Obamacare” and all other forms of out-of-control federal government mandates and “big brother” tactics. If Arizona, Hawaii, New Hamshire, Texas, etc. want nothing to do with National Healthcare as proposed by Barack Obama or Congress, then all they have to do is say “No!”

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Under what Constitution Is All This Going To Be Accomplished?

    If this U.S. Government told State Citizens tomorrow there would be no Congressional Elections, what could they do about it? Without free elections how could States elect new representatives to change a-Police State Government? U.S. Government is on the threshold of having surveillance cameras and drones most everywhere. TSA is expanding its Checkpoints on highways, bus and train stops and ports. U.S. Government is actively monitoring without warrants—journalists, U.S. Citizens’ social networks, emails, phone calls, Internet Activity, and faxes. Soon Americans won’t be able to arrange a 1st Amendment protected meeting, business or doctor’s appointment or other activity without government knowing about it.

    Where U.S. Government appears headed with the Patriot Act, The National Authorization Act of 2012 and introduced “Enemy Expatriation Act” that would let Government Strip U.S. Citizenship without evidence or a conviction—is getting Congress to grant U.S. Government (The Executive Branch) the Power to arbitrarily arrest, charge, indefinitely Detain Americans that participate in 1st Amendment activities (on the premise) that certain 1st Amendment Activities were intended or used to support or provoke hostilities, combatants, Belligerents; terrorism and or threaten National Security.
    Americans appear powerless to stop their government turning into a Police/Surveillance State.

    It is foreseeable millions of Americans under constant police/government surveillance will increasingly not attend political meetings or peaceful protests out of fear they might be arrested, lose their job; be put on Homeland Security’s NO Hire List, especially if they work for a government agency or contractor—that happened in Nazi Germany.
