Posted on 11/26/2010 1:29:20 PM PST by RightSideNews
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:

It’ll be breaking news if and when an amendment is ratified. Until then it isn’t.
Yep, there was a list of the co sponsors here on FR a while back.
He needs to go especially due to the fact he helped RINOS and not conservatives win 2010.
I’m getting real tired of what the States can do. You fools, do it. Start the ball rolling and while your at it, work on impeachment for our communists black Muslim leader.
Spread the word viral over the Internet while we still have that freedom that they’re trying to take.
Agree with your post, and because of the Liberal City, the Liberal Judge, the liberal jury foreperson, the majority Democrat Jury, the timing in which the Judge disallowed a delay until after the four day Holiday I believe a message, a threat was sent to the GOP, to the TEA Party, to the Conservatives by the verdict in the Tom Delay case in Texas.
Acquitted of every other of the trumped up charges against him this verdict stinks of collusion, of tampering, of influence.
It appears a threat to us, to our people going into this new Congress to me.
Not too sure this one makes a lot of sense. Keep in mind that this could cut both ways...
It’s time to take back the country. This might not be the way to start.
California will become a Hippie Wasteland.
America was created by and belongs to God.
>3. Set a Balanced Budget Amendment
What would you think if the budget-balancing amendment read like this:
Neither the Congress, nor the Judiciary, nor the Executive, nor any private corporation shall have the authority to regulate the value of money. The Dollar shall be equal in value to the weight of gold, of a purity not less than nine-hundred ninety-nine parts per thousand, of one hundredth of an ounce.
Whereas the Congress may set the weights and measures of the country, the ounces of this amendment’s section 1 are the avoirdupois ounce, approximately equal to 28.34 grams.
Every year the Treasury shall, under oath, make a true accounting of the gold physically within its repositories available to the Congress and also to the public. On conviction of violating that oath the Secretary of the Treasury shall be put to death.
The United States Shall not enter into any debt which shall cause the total debts to exceed ten percent more than the physical gold on hand.
Any taxation of income imposed by either the federal government or any state shall be of a uniform rate; no exception or credit shall ever be issued. No property shall ever be seized in any taxation dispute prior to conviction in a court of law.
“Too bad we need an Amendment to support the existing 10th Amendment.”
It’s being ignored by Congress and the SCOTUS. Perhaps it needs to be restated. Anything that will limit the federal monster, I am for. This was the beauty and logic of our nation’s founding documents. Anything that will strengthen states relative to the feds, I’m for.
As to RightSide’s comment about the implication of this for CA and NY, it’s not the limiting of federal laws and power that’s the problem for those ‘insane’ majorities.
I am all for that.The activist judges have been way out of control for way too long.
You seem to know your constitution. Would you happen to know if/how such an ammendment would limit the powers of government agencies who are operating outside the constitution (by mandate) such as the FCC and EPA? I’m just curious.
It does not really matter what a law or even the Constitution SAYS.
If we do not have honest, moral, patriotic, conservative people in the key elected offices, we’re doomed to watch even our best laws be manipulated and used as weapons against us.
While a nation of laws is an ideal, a nation of people is an inevitability. The people who rise to power will determine what is ideal and what isn’t.
depending on your age, your Mama probably told you also to change your underware frequently, before it gets dirty..well the same applies to all levels in government - especially our congresscritters! They need changed frequently, especially when they won’t even listen to the ones who send them there!
8) Allow school vouchers for the states. (destroy the teacher’s unions)
