The 10th Amendment

Amendment 10 - Powers of the States and People. Ratified 12/15/1791. Note*
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.

*Note from site: Note well this. Anything not expressly granted to the Federal government is reserved for the States or the People. Although this amendment is very liberally interpreted, it is one of the tenets of the Constitution. This amendment is also known as the States' Rights Amendment.

Now, nowhere in the Constitution is healthcare delegated to the United States nor is it prohibited to the states. Wouldn't that mean, that healthcare (or anything else not covered by same) would be relegated specifically to the states or the people?

Em, you know what gets me about this more than anything? It's the fact that food, clothing, and housing are necessities more than healthcare and yet no one is calling for a bill to provide that. WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH THESE TWITS? By the way, heading out to see Ray McBerry tonight. He's the Republican Governor Candidate that is alllllll about states rights. If you live in the general area, come on out. It's at the Holly Springs Depot from 6:45-8pm. He's also supported by Ron Paul's team!!

Wow, finally a candidate I might just be able to get behind!

And I have always loved that depot! My hubby did some work on it ages ago. I'm in Augusta now, so getting out that way is tough, but I'll check McBerry's schedule, see if he's heading my way.

Thanks! Hey, ask him about the 10th and health care for me.

He spoke last night directly to the point of the 10th Amendment. He is on record of saying that if any FEMA agent or any other Federal Agent comes to Georgia and tries to confiscate our firearms he will put them in a Georgia jail and let the Federal Government bail him out. He HATES the healthcare bill too!! This guy is EXACTLY what Georgia needs. He supports getting rid of the Sunday alcohol sales and even licensing for marriage, because he wants government completely out of our lives unless it violates someone else's rights. You will LOVE him when you go hear him talk.
