Home Letters To The Editor LET’S USE THE TENTH AMENDMENT TO REGAIN CONTROL OF OUR GOVERNMENT

There are those who say that nullification is unconstitutional - that the so-called Supremacy Clause dictates that federal laws trump state laws, but the Supremacy Clause does not say that all laws passed by the federal government are the supreme law of the land.  It declares the “laws of the United States made in pursuance of” (in accordance with) the Constitution are the supreme law of the land.  In pursuance thereof, not in violation thereof.

None of the provisions of Obama­Care, for example, are permissible under the enumerated powers given to Congress in the Constitution. If states would utilize the Tenth Amendment, in a matter of a few weeks, they could make null and void ObamaCare, gun controls, government snooping into our personal lives, et al.   All it would take would be for the state legislature to pass such a bill and the governor to sign it.

Let’s use the Tenth Amendment.
