My thoughts on the loss of the 10th amendmentSubmitted by 99percent806 on Thu, 12/08/2011 - 03:33
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Our 10th amendment...our final Right or should I say privilege? Show me department of education in the constitution, department of energy, department of commerce, the EPA, and so on and so on and so on...when do we take the responsibility? When does BY the people come into play? We as a collective have set back for 100 years of raping and robbing our system by the people we elected to do OUR bidding...for the people or have we forgotten this? When will be enough? The Constitution is the Supreme Law of the land, it was written to restrain the government. We as the citizens watch as they shred it to pieces, without so much as a whimper (collectively speaking). Does the constitution mean so little to the people we are going to keep allowing them to subvert it? I guess so, as I look at society today, the ignorance is astounding. How do we overcome this? Most I see are Willfully ignorant. How do I Change this mindset? I am out of options, we as Americans are so polarized due to fake party nonsense. We have had a two party system for over a century, how can it be "the democrats fault" or "the Republican fault", it can't the blame lies at the feet of both parties. To say otherwise, shows ignorance on a level that is stunning for today's society.
So what is a person in my position to do, I watch the government like a hawk, I see the unconstitutionality of it all, now what do I do? I have been spit on, flipped the bird, cussed out, called unpatriotic, harassed by the cops...and so on...what is next? Please for the love of god give me hope...give me some insight, what do I do?
