A “must-read” over at RonPaul2008.com on the principles of state’s rights; the 10th Amendment. Here’s an excerpt: We are working to overcome a hundred years of indoctrination and increased dependency. The Founders would be appalled that, almost 221 years since our Constitution was written, we are now having to re-explain what a Republic is and [...]
Guest Commentary by Dan Reale You can ask anybody what the first amendment prevents infringement upon. They might know about one thing, freedom of speech, but incorrectly, tell you we are granted freedom of speech. Even then, most miss the other four inalienable rights the Constitution limits the federal government from violating. Most are equally [...]
Recently, the TSA – in an effort to improve their awful public image – launched a blog. Yes, the TSA is “reaching out” to all of us – and it’s not to pat us down without a warrant…this time. According to a post at ThinkProgress.org, it didn’t kick off too well. In fact, so many [...]
Guest Commentary by David Smith Let me ask you a couple of questions.Â First, which demographic segment has the best voting record?Â Meaning, of any age group, which group votes more regularly than any other?

If you are concerned at all about liberty, the economy, the Constitution and the power of the Federal Government – you cannot ignore our longest and most costly war – the War on Drugs. It’s now 35 years after Dick Nixon started this “war” -Â and we now have over 1 million – yes, 1 [...]
The debates over whether Waterboarding constitutes torture or not have been quite heated as of late. Democrats in the Senate have been saying they may not confirm Michael Mukasey as attorney general based on his unclear legal positions on the issue – but some key Dems are now saying that they will approve him.
The unconstitutional drug war rages on – and on, and on.Â Recently, Federal Agents raided a California small business and arrested three people for running a marijuana candy factory. States rights have no bearing when thugs shut down businesses, destroy families, and throw people in jail.
Restoring the…what?Â That’s what many people seem to respond with when a discussion of the 10th Amendment, States Rights and Federalism comes up – however infrequent that may be.Â But it seems that this discussion might be getting a little more attention in the near future.
