I guarentee it!
” The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” – Amendment IX
... NO wiggle room, We The People are in charge.
“grave threats to liberty often come in times of urgency, when constitutional rights seem to extravagant to endure”
– Thurgood Marshall, reflecting on Lincoln’s suspension of Habeas Corpus
WE make the following decisions. The federal gov’t has no authority to influence, nor to dictate:
We The People are sovereign.
Self-declared "elites" have usurped decisions and unconstitutionally federalized them. It is time we forcibly say NO.
Why do WE let this happen?
IMHO, these 3 programs are overly complex and woefully inefficient. They are NOT good legislation.
If given the choice, most US citizens and residents would NOT opt-in. These compulsory programs are flawed and outdated. They only exist because of stolen taxes and coerced “participation”.
Liberty! demands that We The People should make our own decisions and then also make our own arrangements.
I advocate that citizens can opt-in to a gov't program; they must NOT be compelled to "participate".
People, Pebble, PowerThe proper relationship of The People and gov't is like a pebble and a pond. Until the pebble enters the pond... the pond is quiet.
We The People are the pebble. Until we act (to make waves) gov't is still. The gov't is a servant to The People. It is NOT the other way around.
If neighbors can work together to resolve a situation... an optimal solution has been found. If members of an HOA can find a solution... goodness. If a community/city can reach an acceptable solution, tranquility continues. NOT every situation is a federal case; most situations should NOT be...
Gov't is a servant that acts when it is approached by its citizens. The pond is placid until the pebble breaks the surface. The local wave of gov't is approached first. Larger gov't is only approached if a solution is elusive... or hardly ever!
It is most unfortunate that the federal gov’t can threaten cities by the withholding “federal” funds for refusing a federal mandate. This is a bigger problem that can be solved by severely reducing the size, scope, and reach of the federal gov’t.
Constitutionally, it boils down to Amendment IX
"The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people."We The People are the final authority, NOT gov’t edict.
As WE need help, The People reach out and engage gov’t… the Pebble immediately above. WE are the sovereign and gov’t is the servant.
San Francisco and Phoenix have different philosophies concerning immigrants. It’s okay. Each city must be able to make decisions that best serves its citizens; either to be a sanctuary city and or be a city resistant to illegal immigration. The People of each city to decide – NOT a distant, federal gov’t.
Gov’t is established to protect OUR Natural Rights. They work for us... NOT the other way around!
The US Bill of Rights is the greatest expression of individual sovereignty in history. Please become familiar with the advance of individual liberty.
Know OUR history of Liberty!
