What Could Go Wrong? The Federal Fox is Guarding the States’ Rights Henhouse
The 10th Amendment of the Federal Constitution reads thus: “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.”
It’s a wonderful statement in support of States’ Rights, if it were kept. Anti-Federalists wanted it to be kept, which is why it was added to the Federal Constitution, so as to get enough support for Federal Constitution ratification. However, according to the Federal Constitution, the Federal Government is supposed to be the party that enforces this 10th Amendment provision.
Patrick Henry warned that the Federal Government would not enforce this provision, which is one reason he believed the Articles of Confederation should not be replaced by the Federal Constitution. He could foresee that the Federal Fox would “guard” the States’ Rights henhouse, all right. It would “guard” it while chewing and digesting it.
It is time for Anglo-American patriots to see through the Federalist duplicity. It is time for us to work towards restoration of a confederated USA of Anglo-American Patriot States, under the Articles of Confederation (America’s first constitution that was unadvisedly and illegally abandoned), with America’s first national flag (the Continental Colors or Grand Union flag) as the symbol of our enterprise:
This confederated USA can have partitioned out of the USA those liberal “blue” areas in a sea of “red” areas that remain part of the USA, such as illustrated here:
In order to reach this goal, the Anglo-American patriots of today can follow the basic playbook of our patriot forefathers: create a network of Committees of Correspondence of Anglo-American patriots in every State of the USA. When large enough in each State, these in turn can elect a council/assembly of leaders, which in turn can send delegates to a restored Continental Congress, seeking a return to the Articles of Confederation and listing its grievances with the Federal government.
The centralized Federal empire over a “global nation” will fall, and the confederated USA of Anglo-American Patriot States, under the Articles of Confederation, will rise in its stead. This confederated USA will be a nation of and for the Anglo-American patriot people to God’s glory, not a multi-cultural “global nation” Empire that only really serves the interests of an elite few. States’ Rights will be the victor, and the long struggle of Anti-Federalists against all human odds will be vindicated.
Please consider joining the struggle by joining your State’s Committee of Correspondence: http://www.puritans.net/articles/State%20Committees%20of%20Correspondence%20by%20State.htm . State organizers are especially needed.
