Abortion! Illegal immigration! Homosexual unions! And many more issues. These are all issues that have the Conservative movement energized. But, each issue has the attention of just a small part of the movement. Each issue has its own little group that feels that is the most important issue.
These groups fight to get candidates that support their issue and spar with the supporters of the other candidates. There is no co-operation between them. There is no cohesion in the Conservative movement, let alone the Republican Party. How do we who see all these issues as important to the American culture convince the others to get together and fight as a whole unit, instead of a fragmented and divided force? Is there one issue, that if corrected, that would make all the other issues fade away? I believe there is.
The vast majority of these issues do not belong in the halls of the Federal Government. They belong, exclusively, in the states. Few issues, such as illegal immigration, are federal issues. All we need to do is to get the Federal Government out of the issues that belong to the States and not to the Feds. Sound difficult? Not really. All it takes is to get the Government to follow the United States Constitution.
There is a movement out there to do just that. This is a movement among the states to reaffirm their sovereignty over the Federal Government. The State Legislatures are bringing forth Resolutions reaffirming their sovereignty over the Federal Government, in accordance with Amendment X of the United States Constitution. There are also “Tea Parties” springing up all over this country. People are protesting the Unconstitutional way that tax dollars are being recklessly strewn around.
They are demanding the return to our Constitutional Republic. That will limit the power of the Federal Government. What does that mean for most of the issues that people have? The power to deal with them will revert back to the States, and will be dealt with by the “People”. Now we can spend our resources electing Representatives and Senators that will adhere to the United States Constitution. One issue. We get our Republic back and the people get their power back. Now they can concentrate on returning their State Government to do the bidding of the people.
So, instead of worrying about these issues that we feel are the most important to us, let’s just concentrate on one. If we fight individual battles we will be defeated at every turn. If we are to put all of our resources into one fight, getting our Constitutional Republic back, we will be a power to be reckoned with. Once that is accomplished all the other issues will go away as the people reassert their power within their state. Think about it. It is much easier for the people in South Dakota to determine how they want their state to be governed without having to deal with how the Representatives from California think it should be governed.
As James Madison stated in Federalist 45; “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the Federal Government, are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State Governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will for the most part be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects, which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties and properties of the people; and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.”
The time is now folks. People in this country, on both sides of the political spectrum, are fed up with what is going on. It is time to take our Republic and give it back to the people. Unite or we will see the end of our Republic and the establishment of The People’s Republic of America.
