“In 2007, We the R3VOLUTION, made history with a BLIMP. In 2011, We’ll make history again with a ROCK THE R3VOLUTION TOUR! It started as an idea floated on the Daily Paul. It quickly sparked interest all over the country, so much so that it moved from an idea to organizing in less than 48 hours. We now have a growing organization behind it and a website. Here’s the Facebook group. You can find banners and donate here.”
Daily Paul “KRS One Is Going To Do As Much Of The Tour As He Can Fit In His Schedule! And we got word to him at the perfect time! This man is a hero of mine and many others in the freedom movement, and to hear his voice over the phone this morning, telling me he was definitely all about getting Ron Paul elected and very into doing all he can to help Rock the R3volution Tour succeed, I almost fainted, and I did cry!”
Online Athens Banner Herald Lately I’ve heard a great many people wondering what we can do beyond calling our elected representatives in Washington, D.C., to save our nation from a slide into socialism and to restore common sense. I’ve been thinking, though, that maybe we’ve been calling the wrong people. Maybe we should be calling and meeting with people a little closer to home.
In all 50 states, our elected state representatives have abdicated their responsibilities to us, and have stood by silently while letting the federal government bully them and bribe them with our federal tax dollars.
The Tenth Amendment to the Constitution reads, “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.”
The powers and responsibilities of Congress are laid out in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution, and they are limited. Similarly, Article 2, Section 2 of the Constitution spells out the limited powers of the president.
Congress and the president need a very firm reminder of these limitations. They’ve shown themselves to be far too disconnected from the public and from reality, and too addicted to the powers they have given themselves. That’s why we need to press our state officials into standing up for us, and standing up to the federal government.
Now contact them and tell them to start doing their jobs.
