Congress has NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to bail out financial institutions, businesses, and homeowners who don’t pay their mortgages; NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to take control of our health care; NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to pass laws denying secret ballots to employees who are solicited for membership by labor unions; NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to take away our IRA’s and other retirement accounts, NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to take our guns, NO LAWFUL AUTHORITY to pass laws respecting energy consumption or “emissions”, education, housing, etc., etc., etc.
When the Congress decided to ban alcohol, they did not pass a law. They passed an amendment, because they KNEW that they were not authorized to do this themselves. Since then the politicians and the education of the public has degenerated to the point where they are doing all kinds of things that they have no authority to do and without any outcry.
Right now the federal government is headed for economic collapse and, instead of staving it off, they are training for civil unrest. Does any state have a plan for what to do when that occurs? The “mandatory” federal spending that will be $4.5 trillion by 2025. There is no way to borrow, inflate, or survive that. They will have to cut people off. Is your state doing any preparation for that? If we are not ready to at least start asserting the authority that is ours per the Constitution, then we had at least expect to have our hat handed to us.
