There’s something very interesting going on throughout the United States.
Since January, thirty-five states have enacted or are in the process of enacting legislation that affirms the rights guaranteed to states under the Constitution of the United States, specifically in the Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution:
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.
The issue of the sovereign rights of states has reared it’s head many times in the brief two hundred plus years of our republic; however, I am having difficulty recalling a time in which so many bipartisan resolutions have been enacted in such short span of time. And it isn’t limited to just one geographic area, such as before the American Civil War – this is nationwide, not that you would see this reported on the news.
It is a shame that our federal government (and governance in general) has reached a point that states must push back against federalism.
That said, I think our founding fathers would be quite proud.
