The United States Constitution........IS no more!

"Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare but only those specifically enumerated."
-- Thomas Jefferson

"The powers of the federal government are enumerated; it can only operate in certain cases; it has legislative powers on defined and limited objects, beyond which it cannot extend its jurisdiction."
-- James Madison, Speech in the Virginia Ratifying Convention [June 6, 1788]

Unfortunately, as of June 28, 2012, the words of our founders are no longer true. As of this date, the powers of the federal government are all but totally unconstrained! In allowing Congress to mandate that individuals undertake an affirmative act, and allowing them the power to “tax” those who refuse to comply, the Supreme Court has given the federal government almost unlimited powers over our lives. What was unthinkable last week has become reality!

In their infinite wisdom our founding fathers gave us a Constitution that bound the states together, and by which the states ceded to the new federal government which they had formed a number of limited, enumerated powers, “beyond which it [could not]extend its jurisdiction.” They even saw fit to adopt the Tenth Amendment as part of the Bill of Rights, to reinforce their intent that, “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.” Today's Supreme Court opinion in the “Affordable Health Care” case renders the Tenth Amendment meaningless, as all power now resides in the federal government.
Now the federal government's “jurisdiction” appears to encompass education, health care, our daily diets, our finances, our sex lives, and just about any other aspect of our lives that Washington decides it needs to control, including the forcing of religious institutions to ignore the precepts of their faith. It seems that only our First Amendment rights remain intact, but the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) under Barack Obama is working on that.

Mark Lloyd, Obama's “diversity czar” at the FCC said, "It should be clear by now that my focus here is not freedom of speech or the press. This freedom is all too often an exaggeration. At the very least, blind references to freedom of speech or the press serve as a distraction from the critical examination of other communications policies. . . [T]he purpose of free speech is warped to protect global corporations and block rules that would promote democratic governance."
In another quote Mr. Lloyd says: "In Venezuela, with Chavez, is really an incredible revolution - a democratic revolution. To begin to put in place things that are going to have an impact on the people of Venezuela. . . The property owners and the folks who then controlled the media in Venezuela rebelled - worked, frankly, with folks here in the U.S. government - worked to oust him. But he came back with another revolution, and then Chavez began to take very seriously the media in his country.”
With folks like Mark Lloyd, to whom "freedom of speech is all too often an exaggeration," in positions of power at the FCC, how much longer do you think our First Amendment rights will survive? How many times have those on the left already attempted to shut down “right wing radio"? With a Supreme Court that is willing to unleash the power of the federal government to levels never dreamed of by our founders, how likely is that same court to rein-in the federal government when it begins to erode away the Bill of Rights?

We are at a point in this nation's history where only “radical” action by the states can restore balance and sanity to our government. Georgetown Law Professor Randy Barnett has proposed a Bill of Federalism consisting of 10 amendments devised to restore the balance between state and federal power as well as the original meaning of the Constitution, along with a petition for the states to call for a Constitutional Convention in order to adopt those amendments.

“Our peculiar security is in possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction.” Thomas Jefferson, 1803 letter to Senator Wilson Carey Nicholas of Virginia

*Now is the time that our various state legislatures must take action if we want to preserve the Constitution as anything but an historic relic because as of Thursday, June 28, 2012, the Supreme
Court of the United States of America officially made a ‘blank paper‘ of the Constitution!

Unfortunately my fellow Americans, we left the gate open and now the Wolves are IN THE HOUSE! ~ snell

    The US CONSTITUTION IS ALIVE AND WELL.

    All your bluster about a dead constitution is far more scare and bs than any thing else.

    Conservative victory in November is essential, period. No compromise whatsoever can work. The liberal democrats have, indeed, opened the door for treacherous beings in our capitol and they are permeating the very essence of our being as we speak. If they are allowed to remain another four years, America is doomed. That sound harsh? Believe me, it's mild compared to what will happen. The seeds are being sown but lots of folks still can't see the truth for what it is. So we must continue to work hard to get the word out and keep posting informative blogs such as this one and, eventually, we can sway a sufficient number of Obama supporters to make a difference.

    A writer for the COMMUNIST PARTY USA says that “…re-electing Obama is absolutely ESSENTIAL,” and warns that “divisions among Democrats and a potential wave of bad economic news can combine to threaten President Obama’s reelection.”

    It is probably going to take a revolution to get it back to the basics. Progressives since the start of welfare have continually shipped away at our freedom, and liberals have chipped away at our Godliness and ability to PRAY in the public arena.

    But we CAN get it back. Be of good cheer.

    Agreed! It IS nonsense......what Obama is doing to this country - THAT'S WHY IT SHOUDN'T BE HAPPENING! You being a 'progressive' liberal Buddist socialist I would expect too busy with your head up your IT rump to watch day by day as Obama destroys this great nation and It's Constitution! If you REALLY want to know 'where this nonsense' is coming from....ASK HIM! YOU VOTED FOR HIM, because if you hadn't, you wouldn't be asking such a brain-dead question!!!

They are the enemy - (libs) in ALL forms are the the worms in the fabric of this great country that is eating 'worm holes' and eroding us from within! Where there's 'vermin' there's decay and ruin!

    I read the Courts decision much differently. What the Justices and John Roberts in particular did was hand the reins over to the American people. If we DO NOT take those reins, then we deserve what we have failed to control.

    Well, by calling it, or should I say, ruling it is a Tax, that means is can be repealed in the same manner to which it was passed. Simple majority (51/49). Then we have an election coming in a few months and the People have to chance for a do over and replacement of all the crooked, partisan scumbags who did this to us.
