Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise
enumerated and granted to the federal government by the
Constitution of the United States; and, be it further
RESOLVED, That this serve as notice and demand to the federal
government, as our agent, to cease and desist, effective
immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these
constitutionally delegated powers; and, be it further
RESOLVED, That all compulsory federal legislation that
directs states to comply under threat of civil or criminal
penalties or sanctions or that requires states to pass legislation

It was only introduced yesterday, but it will be very interesting to see if this passes.It would be really amazing to see a resurgence in the 10th Amendment.

    unfortunately the civil war set that back a few years. It’s never too late to try though

    Kudos to Creighton, Hughes & Berman for having the insight to reassert these rights.   My question is why should we HAVE to reassert?  Why is that right not still in place?

    How many more rights are we going to lose before we stand up for ourselves? 

    Why have we not heard anything from the 3 top networks “current news” reports addressing this issue? 

    Are they being forced to keep quiet, afraid the remaining states will follow suit?  I say let’s take back what we had and say goodbye to our lives being micro-managed from the
    White House, who is incapable of managing the national debt.
