This Constitutional issue of states rights vs. federal rights needs to be explored.  I loved seeing that my County Sheriff signed on to not register or confiscate guns.  He would not be a tool of the federal government.

What are the other ways we can use civil disobedience to oppose the monolithic federal government?  I am a novice, anybody writing or talking about this?

Seems like the simplest way to curb the government is to stand on our state and federal constitutions at every opportunity and hold the people employed by the government accountable to do their civc duty to support our constitutions.

We have been trying to live peacefully and go along with ever increasing demands of government for 50 years. NOW I HOPE IT IS TIME TO STOP THE NONSENSE! They have way overreached with Obama care, gun grabs, mandates, fines, regulations. I'd like to to make a sudden stop and put government employees in the unemploment line. Try this: Hang a flyer on a bulletin board and get fined $1500.00. We have a 1st Amendment protecting my right to publish a list of my skills in an effort to find a job...

These poor ignorant government employees educated in government schools would follow Hitler's orders to put their neighbors in concentration camps. You gotta educate your friends and family who work for the government, AND GET YOUR CHILDREN OUT OF GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS WHICH DON'T TEACH MORALITY, JUSTICE, AND COMMON DECENCY, much less our civic duty to uphold our constitutions!

I have been considering a quote heard in the last few days, "If we are not practicing our freedoms we will lose them."  If the states are not taking advantage of their freedoms, they will lose them to the federal government.  Perhaps it is time to encourage our state senators and representatives to pass laws proactively to claim our states' rights and freedoms therefore preempting the feds from encroaching on our state sovereignty.  This may serve as an act of civil disobedience to bring us into direct conflict with the power of the federal government, perhaps bringing about a Constitutional challenge, drawing attention to the degradation of our country brought about by federal monopolies.  

We keep hoping we can elect a Congress that will do right by us.  But they are part of the federal system.  We can support conservative lawmakers by taking some of those decisions out of their hands.  Pass laws and then consider their legal standing.  Any way we can take unnecessary federal power & funds and return that power & funds to the states and the citizens the better.   An excellent example of this is the county commissioners and sheriffs preemptive statements about not enforcing unconstitutional laws. 

If just one of the bicameral legislative bodies will pass a bill, do it, start there. 

Yeah, you are right, but someone needs to educate our state representatives. They are like most of our neighbors, unable to articulate constitutional principles being followed rather than ignored.

That is the point of my blog. I want to educate and empower people(and our repesentatives) to stand on our constitutions and demolish the lies and tricks of those who seek to expand government until America becomes no different than China.

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
