THE TENTH AMENDMENT SAYS THE STATES ARE SOVEREIGN
June 26, 2012
I have JUST sent this email of to “my” Representative Frank D. Lucas (R-OK-3):
Dear Representative Lucas,
The Supreme Court has in my mind just joined in the assault on our Constitution and trampled the Tenth Amendment and the entire concept of Federalism that was so deeply debated at the founding of this Great Experiment in Liberty.
I find myself unable to understand how the Federal Government can REFUSE to enforce its own laws designed to protect a State; then castigate that State when IT tries to protect its citizens from the attack that the Federal government chooses to IGNORE!
The powers given EXPLICITLY to Congress include “to establish a UNIFORM rule of immigration” and provide for the common defence… of the United States. I see nothing that says “EXCEPT for Arizona”. (emphasis is mine)
The Constitution also states that the President “shall take care that the laws be FAITHFULLY EXECUTED”. I see no exception stating that (even an ELIGIBLE) President is free to pick and choose which (if any) laws he may, or may NOT, enforce!
Unfortunately, we have no law making it a capital crime for an elected official to FAIL to carry out his/her oath of office; but can you PLEASE explain to my why Mr. Obama / Soetoro is NOT guilty of misprision and WHY this should NOT be considered as a “high crime or misdemeanor”?
Further, will you PLEASE explain to me where We the People can turn for protection when the Federal government REFUSES and the State is FORBIDDEN by that same out of control Federal Government?
