Polarization, Power, and the Destruction of Liberty

Intense polarization has become a “national psychosis.” But, since few understand how things got this way, most “solutions” offered just lead to more of the same. Learn the nature of the problem from George Washington, Mercy Otis Warren, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams. Understanding that, there is still a path forward for the Constitution and liberty.

A bill introduced in the Wyoming House would create a joint legislative committee that would review federal laws and end state cooperation with enforcement of those determined to violate the U.S. Constitution. This process would set the stage to effectively block some federal laws and acts in Wyoming, but this complicated review process isn’t necessary. Rep. Robert Wharff (R), along with a coalition of 14Republicans, introduced House Bill 256 (HB256) on March 4. The legislation would create a joint standing committee on federalism that would review the constitutionality of federal actions “that may exceed the enumerated powers in the United States Constitution or that violate the sovereignty of the state or the people.” The committee would “consider the plain language of the United States Constitution and the original intent in making a final declaration of constitutionality.” The bill includes a list of specific federal actions that would fall under the committee’s scope for review. The committee would refer any federal action determined to be unconstitutional to the full Wyoming legislature for a vote. The state and its political subdivisions would be prohibited from spending public money or resources or incurring public debt to implement or enforce a federal action determined, in the opinion of the legislature by a majority vote (signed by the governor), to be unconstitutional. HB256 tasks the state attorney general with defending the state to prevent the implementation and enforcement of a federal action declared to be an unconstitutional federal action. This includes prosecution of any person who attempts to enforce such federal action. #wyoming #10thAmendment #constitution #libertarian #politics https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/03/wyoming-bill-would-create-process-to-review-and-reject-certain-federal-actions/

Usurpation: When the government exercises power never delegated to it in the Constitution - it steals power from the sovereign people of the several states. #constitution #10thAmendment #founders #libertarian #quotes

On Monday, a Texas House committee held a hearing on several bills that would reform the state’s asset forfeiture process. Some of the proposed changes would also opt the state out of a federal program that allows police to bypass more strict state asset forfeiture laws. On March 15, the House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee held a hearing to consider four bills relating to asset forfeiture, an important first step in the legislative process. According to the Institute for Justice, “Texas has terrible civil forfeiture laws” with a low bar for permanently seizing property. #assetforfeiture #texas #libertarian #constitution #10thAmendment https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/03/texas-house-committee-holds-hearing-on-bills-to-reform-asset-forfeiture-opt-out-of-federal-program/
