The founders, after winning their freedom against very great odds, said we will establish a limited government. The limitations of the government will be put forth in the constitution. In the bill of rights we will reinforce this concept that the federal government has only certain powers as so stated. All other powers, the founders said would be reserved for the states and the people. All Freedom Loving Americans should be aware of the limited powers given to the federal government. Because the Marxist/Progressives wish to dominate and control the lives and interests of all people, they have chosen to ignore these limited powers along with the tenth amendment.
Consequently the Marxist/Progressives have established federal government controls and programs way beyond their constitutional authority. Today we find Marxist/Progressive Bernie Sanders proposing that all Americans should have an accessible path leading toward a college degree if they desire one. “I think what we need to do is say, ‘Yes, higher education should be a right,’ ” Sanders said.
Whether higher education should be a right or not is not the issue. The issue is that only the states have the right to be involved in education. The federal government is usurping the power of the states and the people when it becomes involved in education in any way.
Marxist/Progressive Rep. Carolyn Maloney of New York is calling for the Food and Drug Administration to ban anyone under the age of 18 from using a tanning bed.
The FDA requires every bed have a label explaining the risks to those under the age of 18, but the agency has yet to issue any age restrictions.
“That's an important first step, “Maloney said in a news release. “Yet given the known health risks tanning beds present, especially to minors, along with the steep climb in skin cancer rates we've seen over the last two decades, children really shouldn't be allowed to use these devices.”
Please show me where the federal government has any control over food and drugs much less tanning by individuals in the constitution. This would certainly be a power reserved for the states and the people.
The federal government was given the power and duty to provide for the common defense of the people. The federal government is reducing our military and enabling our enemies to become more powerful while alienating our allies. This would be ignoring the common defense of the people.
The federal government has the power of the purse strings for federal expenditures. The executive branch and legislative branch are given specific responsibilities. The executive branch has failed several times over the last years to submit their budget on time. The Senate has failed to consider any budget and consequently the federal government has been operating on so called “continuing resolutions” which are in fact a way of the federal government from dealing with its important duty.
Freedom Loving Americans, so long as the central government continues to expand its unconstitutional rules and regulations on the American citizens while ignoring its constitutional duties, we will become less and less free. This is and always has been the goal of the Marxist/Progressive.
All Freedom Loving Americans who say America must remain free must take it upon themselves to demand at every turn that America once again have a true limited government. The federal government agencies like Education, HHR, FDA, Social Security Administration, and all other non-constitutional agencies must be dismantled and eliminated. Each state would have the power to continue or eradicate any of the policies and programs of these unconstitutional programs. This must start today or we will be reminiscing about the days when America was a free nation.
