@Orangeone@Patrick Henry@vickee@WolfieUSANow you might could make this argument.
Article IV, section IV:
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a
Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against
Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when
the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence"
That wouldn't be keeping with original intent. But the Constitution is dead anyway, eh? I guess an "invasion" could mean whatever people in black robes says it means.

@Orangeone@Patrick Henry@vickee@WolfieUSANo, no you haven't. Here's what you cited from article 1, section 8.
"To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization..."
Here is the current process for naturalization which the feds have control over.
Just like a classic progressive/ decepticon though. When you can't debate the merits of your argument. Just call names... real classy! I thought you said you were a Constitutional conservative.
@Orangeone @Patrick Henry @vickee @WolfieUSA I know this is upsetting to you. But it is what it is, it's not in the Constitution, it just isn't. If you don't like it, there's a process to change it. See article 5.
@Orangeone@Patrick Henry@vickee@WolfieUSA"To establish an uniform Rule of Naturalization..." You just made my point for me, thank you. The federal govt. only has authority over the naturalization process. Any power not enumerated in Article 1, section 8, defers to the tenth amendment.
@Orangeone @Patrick Henry @vickee @WolfieUSA Reagan also left us with a lot of debt. He was by far and away the best president I've seen in my lifetime. Agreed with most everything else except for the old adage. "if You didn't vote for so and so, then it was a vote for the other guy" I'm sorry, but that's nonsense. A vote for Romney is a vote for Romney. A vote for Dear Leader is a vote for Maobama. A vote for Gary Johnson is a vote for Gary Johnson. If you love freedom and liberty, you should vote accordingly. Please quote me from the Constitution, the article and section that gives the executive branch the authority to police our border. Show me anywhere in the Constitution that gives Leviathan control over our borders.
@Orangeone @Patrick Henry @vickee @WolfieUSA I guess it depends on what you call successful. He was for gun control, than he was against it. For abortion, than against it. When he ran against Ted Kennedy for his senate seat. He ran to the LEFT of Kennedy. I didn't think that was possible. MILLIONS in fee hikes, doesn't sound very conservative to me. So I guess it depends on what camera he's in front of. I could go on, but the election is over and Obama won. As far as being a biz owner, so was Bush Jr. Wanna take a guess as to who racked up the most debt in this country until Dear Leader Chairman Maobama came along? The biggest assault to our 4th amendment rights in the history of the country with the patriot act. I'm not a conservative, I'm a CONSTITUTIONAL conservative, big difference!
@Orangeone @Patrick Henry @vickee @WolfieUSA You're certainly entitled to it. But I felt the same way about Romney. And so Nero fiddles as Rome burns.
@Orangeone @Patrick Henry @vickee @WolfieUSA Well I would probably fit that description then. I did vote, but it wasn't for Romney or Obama. Why is it though that when the establishment crowns their candidate, people like me are expected to just leave our principles at our polling precinct door? Why not for a change all of the people that vote for the status quo, come and join with people like me and vote for liberty for a change? I believe in a foreign policy, the same one that George Washington and Thomas Jefferson advocated for. I don't believe in open borders though. RP did make a good point about this in one of the debates though.
It was something I'd never thought about. He said something to the effect of, if you were to build walls on the border. And then put men with guns pointed outward. What's to stop those same men form turning those guns inward? What if things finally got bad enough in America that you decided to flee and you couldn't? What you must understand is that I finally took the red pill.
I remember pulling the lever for Mccain in 2008 and walking out of my polling booth felling like I needed to hurry home and take a shower. I lied to my friends about it when they asked me who I voted for. I would tell them that I voted for Palin, the lesser of 2 evils is still evil. I don't think any of that makes me "nuts"
@Orangeone @vickee @WolfieUSA You really should watch generalizing with your groups there. I was a Paul supporter, and I promise you. There's nothing liberal about me. It would be kind of like me saying that everyone that has the username "Orangeone" is obtuse. Would that be fair to you?
"Apparently he can’t think of a single reason that nullification should be used by states or local governing bodies."
Herein lies the problem, they don't think, or they can't think. They are TOLD what to think instead of doing it for themselves. Some of these talking heads and politicians have probably never had and original thought in their entire lives.

@RedTulie Something else that bears mentioning is that I don't trust ANY govt. There's state and local govts. that are just as corrupt as Leviathan. The difference is that if we start forming smaller confederations, it'll be easier to manage. I ask people this question, which of your elected representatives are more responsive to you. The ones that are hundreds or even thousands of miles away. Or the city/county commissioner or mayor that may possibly live right down the road from you. It's about size and scale folks, we're completely out of scale. This beast has gotten WAY too big!
@RedTulie That's EXACTLY what needs to start happening. I'll be the first one to raise a glass of ale to all of you when it does.
@Jdangiel I know what nullification is and I agree that the states should start asserting their 10th amendment right and start telling the feds to go pound sand. But someone please show me an example of where it's happening. Like I said, the states are like welfare recipients. They're on the dole too, and that's all Uncle Scam has to do is threaten their medicaid or highway funds and they fall on their knees and start begging.
I brought this up a while back because I remember it like it was yesterday. Louisiana was the last state in the union to raise the drinking age to 21 and they weren't going to. Well, the feds stepped in and said that they didn't have to comply. But we're going to withhold your federal highway funds until you do. Guess what the legal drinking age is in LA now!
@dmellon Well I hope you're right, but you don't have to go back very far to see what kind of influence fedzilla has on the states. Obamacare and Arizona's SB 1070 are 2 recent examples.. They will threaten to withhold medicare or highway funds and it'll be over, watch and see!
While I applaud WY for doing this, I can go ahead and tell you what's going to happen if it passes. Our esteemed DOJ will challenge it in federal court and will be struck down. The question after that happens is what do the people and the WY state legislature do then? Someone please remind me what the benefit is to remaining in this American union.
5 years??? If it were up to me, they'd get the DEATH penalty!
Gotta love guys like Dr. Woods and Kevin Gutzman!
