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.

Gohmert: Dems Will Drag Out Impeachment — Try To Get ‘Best Socialist’ Nominated For President

During an appearance on Huntsville, AL radio’s WVNN on Thursday, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) offered his best assessment of what House Democrats were trying to accomplish with their impeachment efforts.

Gohmert told WVNN’s “The Jeff Poor Show” impeachment could tie up the Democratic Party’s presidential campaign efforts but predicted Democrats would use the occasion to nominate “the best socialist” they can.

“They would lose in the Senate,” Gohmert said on impeachment. “And besides that, the entire time it was on trial in the Senate, the Democrats who are running for president wouldn’t be allowed to campaign. That’s in the Constitution. They wouldn’t be able to campaign. I just can’t imagine them wanting to do that because if they send it to the Senate, they have now perfectly set up the scenario of 1996, where they will reassure Donald Trump is reelected as president. They don’t want to do that. They’re probably going to drag this thing out as long as they possibly can … through Iowa, through primaries — try to get the best socialist they can to be nominated.”

“Then just end up and say, ‘Now we’re close enough to the general election. We’ve thrown mud at the president through the House,’” he continued. “What they’re really doing — they’re using taxpayer funds to campaign against Trump. That’s all this is — a campaign fund that taxpayers are paying for in order to try to throw mud at the president. I’ll be surprised if they have that vote, but I can’t imagine they want to set up this president for reelection by having a trial in the Senate where they lose.”
