Since several states are drawing lines in the sand against the Federal Government, they must see something big coming that I don't. I mean, I'm a
smart guy and all, but apart from illegal wars, the trashing of the Constitution on too many counts to list, and economic collapse, what am I
Can anyone dumb this down for me, lol?
We are witnessing (I hope) the beginning of a show down between the states and the Federal Government. It seems the Federal Government only receives
it's power from the United
States not the other way around. As well as the Federal Government receiving it's power from the States, that
power is bound by the Constitution of the United States. Obviously the Federal Government has over stepped it's bounds in that regard for decades
now by allowing the Federal Reserve, Gun Control, Patriot Act, etc. etc.
What I see here is now with an impending economic collapse the threat of Martial Law is good and those educated in history and with good moral
standing with in the state's governments can see the writing on the wall and are beginning to say enough is enough.
