Support Idaho's Tenth Amendment/State Sovereignty Resolution
In light of the staggering procession of trillion dollar bailouts, loans, stimulus packages, and federal deficits in the context of a sharp economic downturn, over 20 state legislatures are considering resolutions to affirm their sovereignty over those powers not granted to the federal government by the Constitution. Although such resolutions by themselves would not solve the problem of a federal government which dominates and bankrupts the states by ignoring the Constitution's provisions, these Tenth Amendment resolutions can serve as steppingstones to further state and federal legislation to restore the proper balance of power between the states and the federal government.
In America there are two schools of thought about the role of the federal government: (1) Congress is limited in what it undertakes by the Constitution; and (2) Congress can do whatever it wants to do. If you favor a limited federal government as prescribed by the Constitution, please help to get Idaho's HJM4 passed by the Idaho House and Senate.
