When Will Mr. Constitutional Professor Stand Up For The Constitution?

Wasn’t Obama all for standing up for the Constitution, as he told us countless times during his campaign (which is still going on?) Well, eleven States are setting out to remind President Obambi of an Amendment he has forgotten: Eleven States Declare Sovereignty Over Obama’s Action by A.W.R. Hawkins

State governors — looking down the gun barrel of long-term spending forced on them by the Obama “stimulus” plan — are saying they will refuse to take the money. This is a Constitutional confrontation between the federal government and the states unlike any in our time.

In the first five weeks of his presidency, Barack Obama has acted so rashly that at least 11 states have decided that his brand of “hope” equates to an intolerable expansion of the federal government’s authority over the states. These states — “Washington, New Hampshire, Arizona, Montana, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, California…Georgia,” South Carolina, and Texas — “have all introduced bills and resolutions” reminding Obama that the 10th Amendment protects the rights of the states, which are the rights of the people, by limiting the power of the federal government. These resolutions call on Obama to “cease and desist” from his reckless government expansion and also indicate that federal laws and regulations implemented in violation of the 10th Amendment can be nullified by the states.

When the Constitution was being ratified during the 1780s, the 10th Amendment was understood to be the linchpin that held the entire Bill of Rights together. The amendment states: “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.”

Will Obama and the hard left Congress Critters listen? Doubtful. Because they want expanded federal government control, putting States in a completely subservient position, with the ability to dictate all actions to the States.

    No one dared to do this when Bush was in power. Cheney would nuke a state at the first mention of this. THE EXECUTIVE BRANCH RULES !!

    When the country is at WAR the President can do whatever he wants to do to protect us, even if that includes reseeding the lawn at the Washington memorial.
