Does anyone actually know the 10th amendment off hand? It amazes me so much how much the US government has abused its power and trasformed itself exactly into what our founding fathers feared. I'm sure the 10th amendment was gone over very little in High School, it was not until I heard a MAPS discussion with Alexander Shulgin that i finally comprehended its importance. The 10th Amendment states 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. Our country has just completely walked over this valuable amendment. That was put by our forefathers to specifically limit the powers of our federal government. The 10th amendment is why alcohol prohibition needed an Amendment to the Constitution to be valid... Altho drug prohibition doesn't get an amendment... It gets fucking scheduling, some bullshit made up in the 1970's that is completely unfucking constitutional and a complete shit on all of our founding fathers and the basis of liberty itself. We're still seeking freedom after 230 years... Thomas Jefferson: God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ... What country before ever existed a century and half without a rebellion? And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. It is its natural manure.
