I think enough of us are truly sick of it that the moment theres an opportunity,theres gonna be states ceding from the union..........
I often talk about the concept of nullification and interposition of the states.
The interesting thing is that there are issues from the REALID act to Obamacare that have prompted the states to enact laws that contradict these federal usurpations.
While it seems to have lost steam in light of more recent events,my favorite recent piece of this sort of state nullification is the "Firearms Freedom Act",and 8 states have enacted it.
Look at tall the different issues on this page:
In any case,the lame stream brainwashed might want to say this is an attempt to go back to the slave era or pre-civil rights era because *gasp* the big out of control federal government is an absolute necessity for maintaining the status quo.
Then you see states are trying to pass laws that contradict the marijuana laws and the gun control laws- two issues historically steeped in racism.
No one wants to bring back slavery.
But with so many issues affecting so many people and a federal government that demands power in each and every one and in each and every Americans' life,it was really only a matter of time before states started nullifying and interposing as a matter of natural cause and effect; with nothing else they could do to protest this insanity,they began interposing over the REALID act back in 2006 or so.
The anti-REALID state legislation was mostly about unfunded federal mandates,but a few courageous states went further and demanded to know where the federal government derived the authority to institute a national ID scheme in the Constitution.
A proper reading of that document establishes the federal power clearly,and these states saw no power thus.
Of course,give it to the SCOTUS and they'll FIND power for such a thing,but that still doesn't make it legitimate.
And for the record- acts of nullification and interposition like this haven't been seen since the Civil War.
We are on the cusp of a revolution,whether it will be peaceful or not is really up to the tyrant -the out of control federal government- and judging by their attempts to centralize and militarize state and local police into a national police authority,degrade protections of the Bill of Rights for the people against it,evade other laws that demand its restraint in actions directed at the people,malfeasant judgments from the courts giving it power where it doesn't have the right to such,etc,etc.............
Revolutions aren't peaceful not because of the wish of the oppressed for war to resolve the issues which concern them,but because of the use of force of the oppressor in maintaining his power when his rule is challenged.
We have every right to challenge a government that refuses to live within its own bounds,and believes itself to have every power to the extent that it resembles not the Republic founded by our ancestors,but the oppressive totalitarian monarchy that our founders fought a desperate and bloody war to separate from.
Whether or not the government will recognize that right and acquiesce to obey their masters -We,The People- remains to be seen.
Personally,I think that theres a good possibility that economic collapse is right around the corner.
And that will be the spark that ignites the powder keg.
Am I hoping for it?
I'd like my business to be profitable and I'd like to live in peace and leisure.
But that may not be a possibility and I'm willing to accept the fact that I might have to give up peaceful pursuits in order to ensure that The Cause of Liberty is defended and maintained.
