Federal Power: On its Way Out?

Posted by Socrates in "civil rights", federal power, Socrates, states' rights, Tenth Amendment at 5:25 pm | Permanent Link

“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said.

Uh-oh. This isn’t good for the Jews. Almost all of their bullshit mandates – e.g., the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – are at the federal level, not the state level. What if this anti-federal trend continues? Oy veh…

      Why, they could call themselves anti-federalists.

      As I recall, the anti-federalists predicted this calamity:

      “If anarchy, therefore, were the inevitable consequence of rejecting the new constitution, it would be infinitely better to incur it; for even then there would be at least the change of a good government rising out of licentiousness.

      That investigation into the nature and construction of the new constitution, which the conspirators have so long and zealously struggled against, has, notwithstanding their partial success, so far taken place as to ascertain the enormity of their criminality. That system which was pompously displayed as the perfection of government, proves upon examination to be the most odious system of tyranny that was ever projected, a many headed hydra of despotism, whose complication and various evils would be infinitely more oppressive and afflictive than the scourge of any single tyrant.

      The new constitution instead of being the panacea or cure of every grievance so delusively represented by its advocates will be found upon examination like Pandora’s box, replete with every evil.”

      He who pays the piper calls the tune. I’ll believe Perry and other
      governors are serious when they stop taking federal money. Until
      then, they’re bullshitting.
