Yet another unanticipated fastball has been hurled directly at the radical lefts destructive agenda. It is called the Repeal Amendment. Brainchild of Georgetown Constitutional Law Professor Randy Barnett, the proposal has gotten legs with the help of Florida attorney Marianne Moran, Executive Director of RepealAmendment.org.The proposal calls for a constitutional amendment that would allow the states, by a two-thirds majority vote, to repeal objectionable federal legislation and regulations. Virginia Representative Eric Cantor, slated to be Majority Leader in the upcoming Congress, has gotten behind the movement, as has Virginias governor, and lieutenant governor, leaders in the state legislature and Virginias Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli. Cantor articulates the justification well:

Consider that laws, especially amendments, have two sharp edges that cut both ways. Take the time to consider how such a law would be applied in CA or MA, where the insane are in the majority.
THANKS for posting this link. I immediately forwarded it to friends.
Once again this is a stuip idea that I don’t think I could support: The tenth amendment already covers this, what we really need is an amendment limiting the courts to rule in an originalist way, and making it easier to impeach them.
I’m all for this, I will never quit fighting these despots.
But it’s too late for this method to work.
This will incite more [illegal] edits and behavior by the Feds. I am of the opinion that the current new levels of intimidation by DHS and TSS are directly related to the Nov election results. They are going to show us who is boss.
Each new (legal and proper) attempt by the people to shrink the Federal monster will be met with more repression by bureaucratic agencies that make their own laws without congress.
Bet on it.
Yes, but does congress follow 10th amendment?
Repeal the 17th amendment.
the obottoman empire must be crushed !!!
Thank God our freedom and our future just may be saved from this Regime and the RATs and RINOs in Congress and any other political tyrants and/or traitors. You know their names!
Something we've been calling for on FR since the beginning...
Bad, bad, bad! We do not want a Constitutional battle at this time in this country! It’ll open the door to all kinds of tweeking with our Constitution.
Great idea! Until it gets handed over to the SCOTUS and it will be SSDD all over again.
What we really need are gallows. Lot’s of ‘em.
Too bad we need an Amendment to support the existing 10th Amendment.
