The philosophical ideas that would give rise to the protections granted in the Tenth Amendment were present before the Revolutionary War even started.

we must stop cowering in fear at the mere mention of federal power, as if the United States government were some omnipotent god to whom we must bow down and serve.
The defenders of centralized governmental power (a.k.a. tyranny) despise the Jeffersonian idea that the citizens of the states have a right to nullify what they believe to be unconstitutional federal laws.
Progressives that promote nullification (state medical marijuana, for example) yet denounce it as a tactic, are little more than partisan frauds.
If you needed any proof of the fact that the two major political parties are out for themselves and lack even a shred of principle, here is the evidence.
If the proposed federal mandates are so unpopular in any given state that a majority of its people support legislation or a state constitutional amendment to nullify them, that should be a clear indicator to President Obama and Congress that the governed have withdrawn their consent.
President Obama used Thomas Jefferson as a springboard to advocate for government power. There is little in the world more full of irony than a defense of big government using the mantle of Jefferson.

In 1798, Thomas Jefferson gave us a timeless message which was a reminder that â€œwe the peopleâ€ are ultimately in charge, not the federal government. The federal government derives its power from the people.
