A restoration of Constitutional governance requires more than the lip-service afforded it by the various 10th Amendment resolutions currently being put forth by the States. It requires actual action. It would be foolish of We the People of the sovereign States to expect a long-time rogue federal government to yield back that which it has usurped from the States.
For the past 70 years, through a variety of misguided citations of case law, and compounded by the support of unconstitutional federal statutes, a regularity of usurping a State’s right to have its grievances heard before an appropriate court has been facilitated. “Massachusetts v. Missouri” (1939) has been cited by one of the litigants in the cases above as justification for not filing a complaint with the Supreme Court, but in reviewing “Massachusetts v. Missouri,” one will find “Cohens v. Virginia” as the high court’s justification for refusing to hear a case in which “a State is Party.” This is a rabbit hole with a carrot at the bottom, for the high court actually cites the Framers via the Federalist Papers as one of the most important sources to determine how we should interpret the Constitution, and in this case specifically, Article III, Section 2, Clause 2.
In “Cohens v. Virginia,” amongst the other gems, the Supreme Court’s Justice Marshall stated the following:
“The people made the Constitution, and the people can unmake it. It is the creature of their will, and lives only by their will. But this supreme and irresistible power to make or to unmake resides only in the whole body of the people, not in any subdivision of them. The attempt of any of the parts to exercise it is usurpation, and ought to be repelled by those to whom the people have delegated their power of repelling it.”
Justice Marshall also stated,
“It is most true that this Court will not take jurisdiction if it should not; but it is equally true that it must take jurisdiction if it should. The judiciary cannot, as the legislature may, avoid a measure because it approaches the confines of the Constitution. We cannot pass it by because it is doubtful. With whatever doubts, with whatever difficulties, a case may be attended, we must decide it if it be brought before us. We have no more right to decline the exercise of jurisdiction which is given than to usurp that which is not given. The one or the other would be treason to the Constitution.”
The States must join together in support of each other’s efforts at reasserting the sovereign authority of the States, and the time for that is NOW, or the Republic will surely die.
The governors and other officials of those States have a duty to uphold the Constitution, thereby protecting the dignity of the States they represent, and preserving the Rights of the citizens and residents that reside within their sovereign borders.
ReJoin Or DIE! That is the choice
A coalition of patriots with courage
founded the greatest nation the world has ever seen…
A handful of men and women with courage can save it.
