Power to the People Gets it Backwards

11/26/2022
We’ve all heard or seen the slogan, but TO is the wrong word, by far. Under the system and principles of the founders and old revolutionaries, all power comes FROM the people - and they don’t need to ask, or demand, that they get that power back. They just need to take it. The post Power to the People Gets it Backwards first appeared on Tenth Amendment Center.

4th Amendment Protection: Shut Down the Surveillance State

The state-level 4th Amendment Protection Act is a big step in that direction. The post 4th Amendment Protection: Shut Down the Surveillance State first appeared on Tenth Amendment Center.

Martyr for Liberty: Algernon Sidney and the American Revolution

Faction is Death to Liberty

10/26/2022

“Slavery is ever preceded by sleep”

10/24/2022
For the old revolutionaries, a government that could define its own limits, take property at will - an arbitrary power - was the very definition of a tyranny, reducing the people “to the most abject slavery.” In their view, liberty could only exist in a society that’s awake, aware, and actively engaged - in both supporting freedom, and resisting attempts to restrict it.

Alexander Hamilton: The Worst of the Worst?

10/5/2022
The foundation for much, if not all, of the monster state today came directly from Alexander Hamilton. Twisted definitions of necessary and proper and general Welfare, the central bank, and more. These are just some of the worst Hamiltonian views - some we already live under, while others will hopefully never see the light of day. The post Alexander Hamilton: The Worst of the Worst? first appeared on Tenth Amendment Center.

General Welfare Warnings

10/3/2022
Supporters of the monster state want you to believe that the "general Welfare clause" empowers the government to pretty much do whatever it wants. And while that couldn't be further from how things are supposed to be, many leading Anti-Federalists - and others - warned this was just how things would play out in practice in the long run.
