 @whitemcky Now you see the purpose for a "State Militia" ... A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed. (so lets see, the people keep and bear their own arms, arms equivelent in destructive power, which are able to meet and defeat federal arms (aka national guard), and the state regulates the training and call up of that milita in time of need....  hmmm... no... as the anti gun crowd says.... we only need muskets and 9 balls of ammo... that should stop the mational guard in their tracks!).

All power exercised over a nation, must have some beginning. It must either be delegated or assumed. There are no other sources. All delegated power is trust, and all assumed power is usurpation. Time does not alter the nature and quality of either. (Thomas Paine, Rights of Man)....

 

Now for my own paraphrase.... so basically the nation (people) delegated their power to the state (government trustees), then further delegated much, much, less power to the federal (government trustees) this same nation (people) retained all non-delegated power (state or federal). Note that these trustees are under a legal fiduciary duty to the people who entrusted them with this delegated power. If the federal trustees assume powers that were not delegated they are acting in an unlawful manner and their actions are null and void. We remove them form their position as trustee and replace them (vote) if this does not work (as is the case nowadays) we ignore their laws (aka nullify), write our own laws acting through our state trustees which live closer to home, and are therefore more accountable to the seat of real power (aka the people whom delegated the initial power). If this nullification process does not work for some strange reason, the people are left with one option, force the surrender of this illegally assumed power through the exercise of the tools afforded by second amendment. That is how you throw off the yoke, which the founders spoke of in those old crusty documents (declaration and constitution).

So..... Now that the supreme court can no longer be depended upon to uphold the constitution, and the president(s) have been showing for years through executive orders, and signing bad legislation into law, and congress is selling their votes, and not reading the bills they are passing.... A reasonable person would ask, how much more do the people need to witness before taking action against a tyrannical, power hungry and corrupted government ? I don't think future, in your face, government actions will be any less un-constitutional than what we ave already witnessed.... What if the states choose not to nullify? What if the federal government chooses not to let the states nullify? What is next? Oh... We wanted to nullify,we tried to nullify, but it didn't work so they took away the rest of our rights, and we let them do that too...

There is a better chance that the political machine will offer a better choice next time if we refuse to hold our nose and vote for mini-O this time. If you voye for someone that goes against your principles they will reward you with like/kind next time.

 

I refuse to vote for anyone that does not understand and support the constitution. That disqualifies both Obama and Romney. If Ron Paul is on the ballet he will get my vote. If Obama wins because if it, so be it. If the republicans want my vote they better figure out how to put someone in front of me that defends the constitution, everytime, not just when it goes along with their personal want. Or they will soon find themselves out of power, up the creek, just like the rest of us have been for decades.

 

If my only choices are Obama or Romney, I will write myself in as a candadate! It is more important to be principaled than it is to be practical. If Washington had been practical, he would not have accepted command of the Continental Army! Thanks be to God that Washington was a man of principals!
