A group of Republican lawmakers launched a task force on Thursday that seeks to reclaim the powers they say the federal government has unconstitutionally taken away from the 50 states.
The 10th Amendment Task Force, a project of the Republican Study Committee, will develop and promote proposals that aim to usher in what supporters are calling a "New Era of Federalism."

You should blame the South as without them Lincoln wouldn't have been anything special. All Lincoln would have done was ban slavery in Federal Territories and thus new states formed from said territories. If the Southern Plantation society had just accepted that we would have a much more Libertarian society today.

According to the article, Rep. Rob Bishop of Utah acknowledged that the size of the federal government has grown under both the Republicans and the Democrats. His acknowledgment is too little, too late if you ask me.

A couple of the reps involved in this have pretty good voting records in congress & likely will be re-elected by their states. I can't speak for the rest.

The civil war was not about slavery.It was about the north getting rich and fat off the labor and misery of the south.Only 5% of the south owned slaves(maybe even less if i got my statistics wrong).So dont blame the south blame lincoln...he was a tyrant.
Many black people dont even know that lincoln did not care about them and was as racist as they make the Confederacy out to be.
He only declared the emancipation proclamation two years after the war started.In fact its been documented that many divisons went home and declared they would not fight...because they were not fighting for black slaves...they were fighting to keep the union together.
The states had a constitutional right to seperate from the union under the 10thn ammendment.The north was tyrannical and taxed the south to death....something the founders STARTED the country from.
The founders would have sided with the south.
