Limited Federal Government... 17 Enumerated Powers... What's that?

There are ONLY (17) 'Enumerated Powers' delegated to the Congress and the Federal Government by the US Constitution. These 'enumerated powers' are the limits on federal power that our founders provided in the Constitution. Congress and the Federal Government have far exceeded their delegated powers, usurping powers given to the States and the People...  We must return to these limits on governmental power if we are to have a Constitutional Republic.

Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution lists the seventeen powers... specifically enumerated by the Constitution. The federal government is restricted to governing within the limits of these powers. We must return to the Constitutional limits on Federal Power, in order to protect the liberties of every American from the current abuses of the federal government.

So how did prescription drugs become regulated? How are certain industries required to be licensed? What about the hundreds of other areas the federal government has invaded with its statutory, regulatory and Judicial usurpations... Education, energy, transportation, national parks, etc., these functions are all the creation of an out of control federal government. How did that happen? The people and the states failed to keep the federal government in check.  The Federal Judiciary exceed its powers and began to find federal powers never in the Constitution.  The federal government and its leaders knowingly and openly defied the limits of the US Constitution... they wrongly and openly usurp the powers of the People and the several States. 

The Tenth Amendment States: "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." That word, reserved, speaks of exclusivity. The Tenth Amendment and Constitution did not speak of a preferential view for the division of public power.  The Constitution is a mandate not a choice: All powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution are reserved for the States and the People.

The several states were to be the power houses of government... not the Federal Government. Within the framework of the States, a crucible of ideas was to be created, one capable of benefiting all of society. The States were to be laboritories of democracy... the engines of liberty... where in each state could choose those laws and ideas that worked best for its people..

The idea behind our system of Constitutional government was simple, yet profound... a divided government (state and federal), with defined/enumerated powers limiting the central government... while empowering local governments... The State governments were to be given virtually unlimited powers, but limited amounts of money. States could not "print money" to fund their programs, because only the federal government had the power to do such. On the other hand, the federal government was limited to 17 enumerated powers, and without additional power and authority, it had no reason to engage in deficit spending to fund unlawful programs. This kept the value of the US dollar steady, until the early part of the 20th century, when Roosevelt's New Deal began and our currency was devalued to pay for "extra Constitutional" ... government programs. Socialist programs, and progressive ideas have destroyed our Constitution and the original landmarks of government, established by our founders.

The Founders of this republic believed in the dispersion of power... They divided power within government to maximize individual freedom and to protect the power of the States. This was a unique system that kept big government from raising unlimit amounts of money to spend on programs not permitted by the Constitution. Restricting the enumerated powers to 17 functions kept the Federal Government small and limited. Keeping it from raiding the State's treasury's and the people's pocket books, to fund unconstitutional programs and wars.

Under our founding father's system of Constitutional Government... the people and businesses had the power and freedom to move from state to state, in order to find a government that best suited their needs. The People's power to "vote with their feet" and the economic engines of business, were to keep the State governments in check.

Below is a list of the 17 powers our Constitution gives Congress:

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

To borrow on the credit of the United States;

To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes;

To establish a uniform Rule of Naturalization, and uniform Laws on the subject of Bankruptcies throughout the United States;

To coin Money, regulate the Value thereof, and of foreign Coin, and fix the Standard of Weights and Measures;

To provide for the Punishment of counterfeiting the Securities and current Coin of the United States;

To establish Post Offices and Post Roads;

To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their respective Writings and Discoveries;

To constitute Tribunals inferior to the supreme Court;

To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offenses against the Law of Nations;

To declare War, grant Letters of Marque and Reprisal, and make Rules concerning Captures on Land and Water;

To raise and support Armies, but no Appropriation of Money to that Use shall be for a longer Term than two Years;

To provide and maintain a Navy;

To make rules for the Government and Regulation of the land and naval Forces; 

To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions;

To provide for organizing, arming, and disciplining, the Militia, and for governing such Part of them as may be employed in the Service of the United States, reserving to the States respectively, the Appointment of the Officers, and the Authority of training the Militia according to the discipline prescribed by Congress;

To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; And

To make all Laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into Execution the foregoing Powers, and all other Powers vested by this Constitution in the Government of the United States, or in any Department or Officer thereof...

Can you read... I provided a list of 4 actions to take immidiately... look them up.. .I am tired of repeating myself.

DNR and won't

Richard... 

What do I suggest... for corrective actions See: http://teapartyorg.ning.com/xn/detail/4301673:Comment:4698184

Those among others need consideration by our government.

Now its my turn, I read all the comments, Hmmm? fancy that.

 So the EU did have a foundation as stated by Rosie, and the Jewish Rothschild family Wow Wee, in the 1600's fancy that also.

 Yep Ronald did not tell the truth again.

 Well Pooo...:)

Tif... 

There was no EU in the 1600's... The Holy Roman Empire existed as the major power and unifying force of that period.   See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holy_Roman_Empire

If Rosie is alluding to the EU's roots being established in the Holy Roman Empire... there may be some slight connection... as the Catholic Church has provided a conduit thru which variouis families and national ties continue in their associations with the Church and its former glory.

Oh my, this was linked in by Rosie, no wonder Ronald was jumping around in the blog pages, Thought I would not look, did ya...:)

 This gets really good, the British gave their loving arms into this...:)

The Dutch Declaration of Independence, 1581

Toward the end of the Middle Ages, many of the large cities of the Netherlands had bought or won charters giving them many rights of freedom, but when Charles V came to the throne of Spain he disregarded these charters. When Calvinism spread over the Low Countries he introduced the Inquisition and tried to root it out. Philip II of Spain increased the persecution. The people rebelled in 1566 and the Duke of Alva was sent into the country to put down the rebellion. The people elected William of Orange as their leader, and the Dutch Revolt began. The war lasted for forty years with varied fortunes. The Prince of Orange was assassinated in 1584, but the struggle went on under his second son, Prince Maurice, a boy of seventeen. First England and then France came to their aid. Finally in 1609 a truce was established which ended in the acknowledgment of the provinces in 1648 as one of the provisions of the Treaty of Westphalia.

My now look where it ended up in the

UN Global Migration Compact German

UN Global Migration Compact France

 That was some treaty...by the British Elite.

Yes, again my favorite Mason and Esquire impersonator as a traitor receives honorable mention.

I know you know why I'm stuck on the 1783 Definitive Treaty of Peace, all knew of it, they could not know of what was documented by them and theirs.

Jesuit instructors will tell selected students w/high IQs (IQs selected from a UK data bank) for you to be very successful in International Business, Commerce and Law, you must first know and with good understanding the rules of the King, Queen and also Cesar.

Rome, Roman Empire, Holy Roman Empire, Vatican, Church of Rome, Holy See, Black Pope.

I grew up in a place once called Rome Maryland it's now called the District of Columbia as the Consort of "uncle sam" in the US, is a masonic symbol, and parrelles Aestoreth and Ishtar in the east, who are actually later representations of the Goddes KALI, the consort of SHIVA. And atop the Whitehouse is the statue of Persephone is only one small little detail in the grand scope of the occultic history of Washington D.C. 

all I can say, is that a internet war is coning, it will be impressive.

The constitution must have a few changes and additions fitting modern times which have been written, along with a new oath to the Constitution.

Reset and RV is in order for the return of real currency as a Certificate backed by multiple tangibles. Let them have their Notes as monopoly money. America First. Exchange Centers with distribution in several locations.

A written Declaration of our Sovereignty to be recognized by all elected representatives. Being a sovereign man/woman is for those that can afford to be so until they can make that choice. Free Will.

The Judicial system shall be revamped. 

This would have us in queue to be on our independent way peacefully.

Really, you think...:) Have Tif respond to me like da!!!!!!!!!!

Shiva... the Destroyer... go figure.  Presephone is the daughter and niece of Zeus (incest anyone), and the wife and niece of Hades, queen of the Underworld.  Proving our forefathers had a classical education and were keenly aware of a spiritual world beyond the temporal order... The gods of the world being mere images of deeper concepts... ancient and old... of the things that drive civilizations and mankind.

Like all things temporal... the governments of this world are arbitrary and in constant flux... looking for rest and peace but unable to find any in the things of the world.  The lost are but the pawns of the geater powers, earthly and heavenly.  Man will never find the answers in temporal reason...he can only be free and at rest when he truly understands himself and his relationship with God... Jesus Christ. 

There are many voices calling, many enfluences pulling man in this world... but only one truth, one Lord and ONE GOD of us all.. Jesus Christ.  When man finds the truth, he transends the natural law; too, become a new creation... an eternal being... Born again of the Spirit of Life... in Jesus Christ.

ALERT ALERT

TOTAL BULLSHIT!: FBI Arrests Leader Of Militia Group Stopping Illegal Aliens In New Mexico

The FBI on Saturday arrested Larry Hopkins, the leader of the militia group that is stopping ‘asylum seekers’ after they illegally cross over the US border into New Mexico.

Hopkins was arrested shortly after the anti-American ACLU accused the militia group of kidnapping and illegally detaining the aliens.

Reuters reported:

Hopkins, 69, also known as Johnny Horton, was arrested in Sunland Park, New Mexico, on a federal complaint charging him with being a felon in possession of firearms and ammunition, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said in a statement.

“We’re not worried about it, he’s going to be cleared,” said Jim Benvie, a spokesman for the United Constitutional Patriots (UCP), blaming his arrest on political pressure from Lujan Grisham.

Hopkins is the “national commander” of the UCP, which has had around half a dozen members camped out on a rotating basis near Sunland Park since late February.

More than 300 ‘asylum seekers’ trying to illegally cross the US border this weekend surrendered to an armed militia of New Mexico citizens comprised of ex-cops and veterans.

This is what happens when the US government doesn’t even uphold its most basic commitment to the American people, to secure the borders from invaders.

The militia then handed over the detained aliens to US border patrol.

The militia immediately came under attack — PayPal and GoFundMe banned the group of armed citizens from being able to raise money.

In a statement to BuzzFeed, PayPal claimed that the group violated their “Acceptable Use Policy.”

“The account associated with United Constitutional Patriots has been closed due to a violation of our Acceptable Use Policy,” the spokesperson told BuzzFeed News. “We do not allow PayPal services to be used to promote hate, violence, or other forms of intolerance that is discriminatory.”

Mark Cheney, who identified himself to BuzzFeed as the “commander” of the militia, said that the bans have “killed” their efforts.

“They killed us,” Cheney said. “I have to find some other way for people to donate.”

There is a crisis at the US-Mexico border and the Democrats and activist judges are fighting President Trump at every turn.

In March alone, over 100,000 illegal aliens were detained by US border patrol.

According to reports, over 1.5 million illegal aliens will enter the United States in 2019 if the surge continues at the current rate.

Instead of arresting the illegal alien invaders, the FBI arrests an American man who is defending the borders. Let that sink in.
