The States can't step up to "reclaim their powers" because our NEW constitution took them away.
I know what you are saying, OP.
This thread is just an analogy for the supporters of the Articles of Confederation...
You people need to remember that we are on our second constitution
This is not our first. The first one was illegally overthrown
in a conspiracy.
I'm sure there are some blockheads who don't agree that it was our first constitution, that it was something else
, so here is a link to the
Library of Congress:
The Continental Congress adopted the Articles of Confederation, the first constitution of the United States ...
... and how can we forget Article XIII ?
Every State shall abide by the determination of the United States in Congress assembled, on all questions which by this confederation are submitted to
them. And the Articles of this Confederation shall be inviolably observed by every State, and the Union shall be perpetual; nor shall any
alteration at any time hereafter be made in any of them; unless such alteration be agreed to in a Congress of the United States, and be afterwards
confirmed by the legislatures of every State.
Perpetual? Altered? REPLACED????
.. Oh, and before you even TRY to read that, do some research and save yourself the time.
Remember they were replaced to give the BIG GOVERNMENT more control.
... and just like the first constitution wasn't effecting in joining, standardizing, have a military for, etc.. etc... It's the same reason they
will replace the current constitution with the THIRD ONE, so that the BIGGER GOVERNMENT (NAU?) has more control and we have standardized money, a
continental military, and a stronger big government.
Formal name of the nation
Articles: The United States of America
Constitution: (not specified, but referred to in the Preamble as "the United States of America")
Now nobody knows WHAT it is? Is it a corporation? A country? Is it D.C? Oh wow, they really pulled the wool over our eyes!
Articles: Unicameral, called Congress
Constitution: Bicameral, called Congress, divided into the House of Representatives and the Senate
Divide and conquer says the NWO.
Term of legislative office
Articles: One year
Constitution: Two years for Representatives, six for Senators
More time for continued networked corruption.
Term limit for legislative office
Articles: No more than three out of every six years
.. of course not! more time to practice your corruption! Or, if you are Ron Paul, more time to pratice beating a dead horse!
When Congress is not in session...
Articles: A Committee of States had the full powers of Congress
Constitution: The President can call for Congress to assemble
ONE group to rule them all!
Articles: Congress authorized to build a navy; states authorized to equip warships to counter piracy
Constitution: Congress authorized to build a navy; states not allowed to keep ships of war
Take more power from the states! States don't need battle ships like people don't need guns!
Power to coin money
Articles: United States and the states
Constitution: United States only
And just WHAT IS THE UNITED STATES? IT HAS NO FORMAL NAME!!!
Maybe it REALLY IS the FEDERAL RESERVE/IRS + Foreign interests.
Boy, I can't wait to see what our second constitution is replaced by!
