Unconstitutional federal acts are not "law" - they're null and void - and should be treated that way too.

"An act of usurpation is not obligatory; it is not law; and any man may be justified in his resistance."
-Theophilus Parsons, Jan. 23, 1788
Massachusetts Ratifying Convention

Did you know that local law enforcement agencies often commit significant resources to helping the federal government enforce federal gun laws and regulations? In this report, we’ll share with you the official agreement between a local police department in Arizona and the ATF.

In his veto of a national bank, Pres. Jackson also had a little to say about federal land holdings

#constitution #land #federalland #quote #qotd #history #andrewjackson

"The Government of the United States have no constitutional power to purchase lands within the States except "for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dockyards, and other needful buildings," and even for these objects only "by the consent of the legislature of the State in which the same shall be." By making themselves stockholders in the bank and granting to the corporation the power to purchase lands for other purposes they assume a power not granted in the Constitution and grant to others what they do not themselves possess. It is not necessary to the receiving, safe-keeping, or transmission of the funds of the Government that the bank should possess this power, and it is not proper that Congress should thus enlarge the powers delegated to them in the Constitution."
July 10, 1832

Then he went an killed the shit-house called the central bank, and thus, why he is being removed from the 20. Revisionist history or a complete rewrite, either way,they want everyone to forget his deeds as an American hero!

Thomas Jefferson on who decides constitutionality...

#thomasjefferson #constitution #liberty #nullify #10thAmendment #quote #qotd #quotes #history #founders #foundingfathers

"The government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress."
-Kentucky Resolutions, Nov. 10, 1798

On sovereignty, Samuel Adams had a little something to say...

"I wrote to you hastily two days ago, & as hastily venturd an Opinion concerning the Right of Congress to controul a Light-house erected on Land belonging to this sovereign & independent State for its own Use & at its own Expence. I say sovereign & independent, because I think the State retains all the Rights of Sovereignty which it has not expressly parted with to the Congress of the United States--a federal Power instituted solely for the Support of the federal Union."
-Letter to Elbridge Gerry on Aug 22, 1789

Is a democracy, such as we know it, the last improvement possible in government? Is it not possible to take a step further towards recognizing and organizing the rights of man? There will never be a really free and enlightened State until the State comes to recognize the individual as a higher and independent power, from which all its own power and authority are derived, and treats him accordingly.Henry David Thoreau (Civil Disobedience, 1849)

Something to think about from Thomas Paine, who rallied many to the cause of independence with Common Sense. As of 2006, the book was still the all-time best selling American title...

"Society in every state is a blessing, but government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state an intolerable one: for when we suffer, or are exposed to the same miseries by a government, which we might expect in a country without government, our calamity is heightened by reflecting that we furnish the means by which we suffer."
-Thomas Paine, Common Sense.
Jan. 10, 1776

The federal government - will never, ever - eliminate its own funding source. But for the sake of our future, it must be resisted and rejected at every turn possible.
We recommend doing it in the states.

Last month we reported that the Feds restarted a program that helps local police get around state restrictions on asset forfeiture. Today, some states have taken steps to close this massive federal loophole.

The founders considered paper money to be a rip off. Take this, from Richard Henry Lee in a letter to George Mason on May 15, 1787.

"Knaves assure, and fools believe, that calling paper money, and making it tender, is the way to be rich and happy"
