fantasy state of their own devising.
Am I thrilled to teach misguided people the truth about our Constitution? Am I thrilled to defend our Constitution when it is attacked by fantasists
and propagandists who lie about it? Absolutely.
Hmm, well since you infer that you know so much about the Constitution, and I assume the Amendments as well, then please explain the Tenth Amendment
in this context and what it means.
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to
In the case of the federal government exceeding the authority granted by the US Constitution, trying to enforce said UNCONSTITUTIONAL laws,
regulations, or what have you, WHO exactly would it be that would hold the front line to defend the STATE and it's PEOPLE from such usurpations by
the federal government?
Seems to me, that the Tenth Amendment clearly bestows the authority to the STATE and THE PEOPLE to do whatever is necessary to defend themselves from
depredations by the federal government. And as such, clearly the local Sheriff's departments are within their constitutionally LEGAL rights to
rebuff the federal government when the STATE's and THE PEOPLE's rights are being infringed by that same federal government.
So please enlighten me with your apparently professed superior knowledge of the Constitution about how the federal government can LEGALLY ignore the
limitations imposed by the US CONSTITUTION and SPECIFICALLY reiterated and reinforced by the TENTH AMENDMENT. Teach me, please....
Quite frankly, my opinion is that if the Sheriff's department will stand firm between the federal government and THE PEOPLE, then THE PEOPLE will
stand firm WITH THEM between the federal government and the Sheriff's department.
