    The Left vs TenthAmendmentCenter.com

    Advertisements



    There’s been more and more garbage coming from the mainstream left as a direct attack on those who believe in limited government under the 10th Amendment. Here on this blog we’ve written about this already here, here and elsewhere.


    The latest? This “report” from MediaMatters:
    On the September 17 broadcast of his radio show, Lou Dobbs hosted Tenth Amendment Center founder Michael Boldin and repeatedly “urge[d]” his listeners to visit the group’s “very interesting” website. The site, among other things, has published or reprinted several articles advocating secession from the United States.
    The idea that this website has opinion pieces from people who believe that secession is a proper course is in an effort to discuss the principles of decentralization. From our “about” page:
    The Tenth Amendment Center works to preserve and protect Tenth Amendment freedoms through information and education. The center serves as a forum for the study and exploration of state and individual sovereignty issues, focusing primarily on the decentralization of federal government power.
    The fact of the “matter” is that this country was founded on seceding from the British empire – so to ignore this is to ignore what gave birth to the United States of America.


    The truth here is that the establishment left sees the 10th Amendment movement as dangerous.

    Why? Because it’s non-partisan.


    True support of the 10th Amendment means that you support the right of people in their own states to make decisions regarding health care, marijuana, guns, marriage, guard troops and more. A liberal who is in favor of legal marijuana in New Hampshire can actually be an ally of a conservative who is in favor of more gun rights in Montana.


    It’s not necessarily the single issue, but the underlying principle – the most important, the most difficult – issues – are best handled close to home. That’s what the founders created for us. And that’s what the establishment media on both sides (but primarily the left lately) hates.

    The 10th Amendment has become synonymous with "Right-wing radical" in today's political sphere. Many people associate "state's rights" and "state sovereignty" with racist rednecks calling for secession and perpetual slavery - however, this is an image that is completely untrue. In reality, the 10th amendment was considered by many of the founding fathers to be the very crux of the Constitution.

    It is very surprising to me that liberals do not invoke the 10th amendment more in their arguments over things such as gay marriage, firearms, abortion, and environmental issues. There is a solid states' rights argument to be made for local control in all those issues and, in addition, such arguments would undoubtedly be upheld by the US Supreme Court.
