TOPIC: Federalism and the Tenth Amendment

Re: Federalism and the Tenth Amendment 2 years 1 month ago #79

So, for those that may have missed it, here is Skippers proposed full plank.


So, for a full plank:
"We strongly support and affirm that the primacy of the people of the United States and their respective States are paramount and supreme over the powers of the federal government, unless expressly enumerated and granted to the Federal government in the Constitution. We believe the Tenth Amendment expressly solidifies this primacy in the Constitution."

We have taxlaw4u and myself and presumably Skipper in support. The rest of the Committee needs to weigh in and signify support or counter proposals.

I agree with the wording we have here. The only suggestion I have, or it may be more of a question on my part is: would it be assumed or redundant to include something along the lines of "as long as an individual state law is not in violation with other Constitutional provisions, then....". It's fine if we're assuming that the reader knows that already, just a question I had. Other than that I approve of the plank we have here.

I find this particular text to be just about the most clear and concise, as far as meaning, in the Constitution. "If a particular power is not given to the Federal government expressely by the Constitution or ceded by the several States then the Federal government has no claim to it."

Hello folks. I am a newbie to this group. So I will be playing catch up over the next few days/couple of weeks.
I have read the original post and all of the replies. It was good to read the conversation and follow the development of this Plank.

I would be supportive of the language below which has been crafted by this group.

"We strongly support and affirm that the primacy of the people of the United States and their respective States are paramount and supreme over the powers of the federal government, unless expressly enumerated and granted to the Federal government in the Constitution. We believe the Tenth Amendment expressly solidifies this primacy in the Constitution."

Best regards,
Gary

The wording here is eloquent (beautiful even) and sums up perfectly the federalist argument. I endorse.

I know the this particular platform has already been approved but I support it. It sounds great Butch.
