Nowhere in this list does it mention that the Federal Government has the power to make decisions for the social welfare of it’s citizens. Government does NOT have the right to tell you what to do outside of this list. President Barak Obama (someone who obviously never study our form of Government) and the current democratic leadership in our Nation’s capitol have brought our country further toward Socialism than any administration since Roosevelt. Today America became less free.
This is a powerful lesson of the importance of voting and participating in elections. Make sure you are living in one of the 40 States whose congressional legislature have voted to mandate the Attorney General to file lawsuit against the Federal Government in the Supreme Court. If you find out otherwise- CALL SOMEONE and make it happen! Hopefully the Supreme Court can save us from democratic arrogance. God help us.
The TENTH Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America:
The powers NOT delegated (meaning not in the list above- like social welfare- i.e. healthcare)
to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States,
are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
God SAVE America!
