Firewalls are, as everyone knows, built into many modern structures to prevent fire in one section from spreading to another.
The organic Constitution created national borders as national firewalls to protect the contiguous united States from outside invasion. That is also
the reason state boundaries were established, to make it illegal for one state to impose laws upon the people of another state who found those laws
The Constitution states in article IV, section 4: The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government.
The Ninth Amendment guarantees..."The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others
retained by the people".
The tenth amendment guarantees that powers not granted to the United States are reserved to the States or to the people.

Sprague, 282 U.S. 716, 733 (1931).
These are contractual guarantees. The federal government has no legitimate authority to breach the firewalls they themselves created and guaranteed,
except in very limited and detailed instances. The federal government had no legitimate authority to rip out the State's firewalls and declare itself
the ultimate lawgiver, thus abridging the original contract.
During the debates in the Virginia State Convention of 1788, John Marshall stated that if the States possessed a power prior to the adoption of the
Constitution and a like power was granted to the federal government, the States retained a concurrent power unless there was a conflict in the
exercise of power or there was a clause that specifically prohibited the States from exercising that power.
Following the Civil War, otherwise known as the war of northern aggression against State’s and people’s unalienable rights, when the population
was still reeling from the wanton destruction, two amendments were adopted regarding the rights of former slaves. Only one of them was legally
ratified: the thirteenth amendment abolished slavery and was legally ratified. The other abridged the original contract and tore down the firewalls:
“Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and
of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United
States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”
Note that the 14th amendment does not say that the federal government may not make or enforce laws abridging the privileges or immunities of the newly
declared federal citizens, or that they may not deprive those citizens of life, liberty or property. Persons are regularly denied equal protection and
due process under federal law, some of whom are never charged with a crime, receive a fair trial or are convicted by a jury, but are deprived of
property, imprisoned, and in extreme cases, extra judicially murdered by that same government.
The encroachment of federal law enforcement over the constitutional guarantee of a Sovereign State’s autonomy has never taken a day off work, there
are no lunch breaks, holidays or 40 hour work weeks for central planners and executioners of federal control. Hundreds of bills have passed muster
over the approximately 150 years since the 14th was deemed ratified, giving the appearance of substance and legitimacy to a fundamentally failed
There is No "Fourteenth Amendment"!
U.S. News & World Report
September 27, 1957
“There were 37 States in the Union in 1867-8, so ratification by at least 28 was necessary to make the 14th amendment an integral part of the
Constitution. Only 21 States legally ratified it. So it failed of ratification.”
The frogs finally noticed they were getting uncomfortable and the water was beginning to steam. They looked for a shut off valve.
In 1995 eight states adopted resolutions to restore the tenth amendment to America, they were Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California,
Colorado, Connecticut and Delaware. Most people within those states never even knew their governors and legislatures were demanding such sweeping
reforms and therefore did nothing to sustain those efforts. Corporate media was mum and the internet was still in its infancy.
Wake the heck up! For the past 80 years and more the federal government has been working just as diligently to tear down the national firewalls and
sell its citizens to the highest foreign bidders as they previously did with the state's firewalls.
Is there any better mechanism, or is there even any other
mechanism available to us to stop the constant erosion of our rights than to go back
and correct the original fraud that led to the federalization of everything with ~ and without ~ a pulse in America?
As always, individuals can do nothing much to force the genie back into the bottle, but the state movements haven’t gone anywhere, they’re still
fighting for our sovereign rights.
A Summary of the original 10th Amendment State Resolutions
As of 1/15/2010 - Ongoing Process.)
The resolutions were all much the same, but here is the exact wording from Colorado. forum.prisonplanet.com...
Although Fox News and CNN are not telling you about it, a growing number of states are declaring sovereignty. Washington, New Hampshire, Arizona,
Montana, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, California, and Georgia have all introduced bills and resolutions declaring sovereignty under the Tenth
Amendment. Colorado, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Alaska, Kansas, Alabama, Nevada, Maine, and Illinois are considering such
New model legislation from the Tenth Amendment Center breaks today as part of the uproar over the National Defense Authorization Act. It’s called
the Liberty Preservation Act and it actually comes in 3 bills. One part is a non-binding resolution, the second part a non-compliance act, and finally
the state nullification. “With this you can act to resist them right now instead of asking those in Congress to repeal what they already passed,”
says Michael Boldin.
What can we do to push this forward? Or backward, if you will.
