Kentucky Sovereignty and the Tenth Amendment
My friends, is there anyone who knows better what Kentucky needs than those of us who live here Ronald Reagan once said, "The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help." The Tenth Amendment states "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 the people." Thus, it was the people who created the government to be their agent for certain enumerated purposes only. The people continued to employ state governments for different (although occasionally overlapping) purposes. This was the way the Federalists explained the ratification to the general public. Congress is authorized to exercise 30 powers which are clearly enumerated in the Constitution. Therefore, the people have the authority to govern themselves in their own states. The federal government has been violating this line between state & federal authority for a long time, and is currently considering legislation that would include international - yes, INTERNATIONAL - law. For this reason we MUST enforce our rights to ensure the federal government recognizes our right to govern ourselves.
