Advance liberty, bury empires! We’re fully on board with the great Revolutionary War Hero Joseph Warren. "May our land be a land of liberty, the seat of virtue, the asylum of the oppressed, a name and a praise in the whole earth, until the last shock of time shall bury the empires of the world in one common undistinguished ruin!" -An Oration Delivered March 5th, 1772. At the Request of the Inhabitants of the Town of Boston; to Commemorate the Bloody Tragedy of the Fifth of March, 1770. #liberty #founders #quotes #libertarian #10thAmendment

Most people reflexively believe the federal government protects the interests of minorities. After all, the feds gave us the Civil Rights Acts and ended segregation – so the narrative goes. But in truth, the federal government has a pretty abysmal record when it comes to its treatment of minority communities and has often implemented policies extremely detrimental to their interests. In general, centralized authority has historically brutalized minority populations, and this includes the U.S. federal government. The federal government’s treatment of Native Americans throughout history provides a litany of examples. The forced relocation of various tribes to reservations, the Trail of Tears, the long train of broken treaties, not to mention the outright wars of extermination waged against some native tribes in the 1800s immediately spring to mind. But while that kind of overt oppression has faded into the past, some modern federal policies continued this legacy of the horrible treatment of native populations. The federal government’s involvement in Native American healthcare provides a chilling example. #10thAmendment #libertarian #constitution #truth #decentralize https://tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/06/20/lessons-in-centralized-power-federal-policy-facilitated-forced-sterilization-of-native-american-women/

Last week, a Wisconsin Senate committee passed a bill that would prohibit local enforcement of some future federal gun control. Passage into law would represent a first step toward stopping federal acts that infringe on the right to keep and bear arms within the state. A large coalition of Republicans introduced Senate Bill 314 (SB314) on April 21. The legislation would prohibit any person from enforcing a federal act, law, statute, rule, regulation, treaty, or order that takes effect on or after January 1, 2021, if it bans or restricts semi-automatic firearms, assault weapons, or magazines; requires registration of firearms, magazines, or other firearm accessories; regulates the capacity of magazines; regulates the quantity of ammunition or bullets an individual may possess; prohibits types of ammunition or bullets; or requires the confiscation of a firearm if the federal act isn’t identical to existing state law. The proposed law would also bar any state agency or other body in state government and any local governmental unit from expending money or using other resources to confiscate a firearm, firearm accessory, or ammunition that is lawfully possessed under the laws of Wisconsin. Anyone who violates the law would be subject to Class A misdemeanor charges. #2ndAmendment #10thAmendment #wisconsin #libertarian #constitution https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/06/wisconsin-senate-committee-passes-bill-to-take-on-future-federal-gun-control/
