Forcing the federal government to be restrained by the Enumerated Powers is not a crime.

“…whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force.”
– Thomas Jefferson (1798)

“…a law repugnant to the Constitution is void…”
– Marbury v. Madison, (1803)

“An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no right; it imposes no duties; it affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed.”
– Norton v. Shelby County, (1886)

The 10th Amendment:

“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.”

WHAT:  Federal employees, with the help of all Oath-takers, will be limited by the Constitution once again. 

WHY & HOW:   

  • Socialism is not Freedom.
  • Enforcing the Constitution against people that swore to obey and defend the Constitution is not a crime. 
  • Nothing disentangles us more perfectly and completely from Marxists and their Socialism than the Constitution enforced.
  • Why would we not want to restore the Constitution’s limits on Washington, D.C. and on every person that swore the Oath of Office?  What can truly ever be made right again if we do not?
  • What we see in Washington, D.C. right now is not our lawful, constitutional federal government.  It is an unlawful, unconstitutional Marxist parasite sitting on top of our federal government.
  • Enforcing the Constitution again instantly removes every Socialist tool and weapon that the Left in both parties use to control us. 
  • America is not plagued by racism.  It is being drowned in Marxism.  Restoring the Constitution will make this clear.
  • Freedom makes us stronger, smarter, more moral, responsible, and  independent.  Socialism makes us weaker, dumber, less moral and responsible, and more dependent.
  • Allows us to organize and direct the army of people across our nation that swore the Oath to us to hold our servants in D.C. behind the line of Enumerated Powers in our U.S. Constitution. 
  • Ignoring the Enumerated Powers in the Constitution will no longer be an option.
  • There will be no violence… on our part. 
  • There will be no arguing with the Left, only explaining that the Constitution must mean what it says or it means nothing at all.  Period.
  • They will no longer be able to use the protections of the Constitution to dismantle our Republic from within. 
  • If the Left has lied to us about things as critical to keeping us free as our Constitution and their Oath, then what would they not lie about, and what else are they lying about?
  • Removes all other peripheral issues and restores the Constitution as Plan A. 
  • Removes the Republican and Democrat Parties as the gatekeepers to our Constitution, our Freedom, and our Rights. 
  • Drags into the to light of day everyone that swore the Oath, as well as every citizen, member of the Press, every college professor and teacher in our Republic, and forces all of them to choose to stand for or against Freedom and the Constitution as written. 
  • We can fight for our Freedom locally, which is where the real power lies under our form of government. 
  • It is still an absolute requirement that every person in every political party in our Republic must swear an Oath to us to obey and defend the Constitution as written. 
  • Lying and/or breaking the Oath of Office results in an immediate loss of all moral and legal authority over everyone and everything.
  • Neither the Constitution nor the 10th Amendment have been repealed. 
  • We elect and hire servants, not rulers. 
  • Voting is a simple component of our system.  The Constitution enforced and obeyed is our system.
  • To be an American you must want to be free and protected by the Constitution.  To oppose the Constitution being enforced shows that you are not.
  • We live in a Christian Republic, not a homicidal, militantly Atheistic Republic like the Soviet Socialist Republic, Cuba, North Korea, or China. 
  • … and dozens of other pivotal and transformative reasons and facts that will be discussed and acted upon. 

How do we know if someone is honoring their Oath to us to obey and defend the Constitution? 

  • Only if the words “Enumerated Powers” are coming out of their mouths and they are actively enforcing those specific Delegated Responsibilities.

Silence and inaction in enforcing the Enumerated Powers, the 10th Amendment, and the Oath of Office means that the individual lied when they swore their Oath of Office or has no real understanding of the document that they swore to us to obey and defend.

Lying, breaking, and refusing to honor your Oath of Office means instantly losing all moral and legal authority over anyone or anything.

If it is Socialism or the Constitution… we choose the Constitution.



Are they enforcing the Constitution
or the extra-constitutional laws, rules, regulations, programs, taxes, and fees that come out of Washington, D.C.?



“Which view of the Constitution do you hold?”

  • A list of Enumerated Powers, in Article 1, Section 8, severely limiting the function and scope of Washington, D.C. so that we can live free from a powerful central government.


  • A ‘living document’, removing all constitutional restrictions and giving a vast number of people in Washington, D.C. power, without limits, over our lives and property.



Our Constitutional Crisis: 
Two polar opposite views on the Constitution result in two completely different Oaths of Office, to two different groups of people, and in two radically different forms of government.

How they view the Constitution tells us exactly which oath they swore and to whom they swore it.  It should be to us, not to federal employees in political parties in Washington, D.C., obeying and defending them from us by enforcing all of their unconstitutional, unlawful actions.

They cannot swear to obey and defend the Constitution and then never talk about that which they swore to obey and defend.  How is exactly is that honoring their Oath of Office?

Asking and answering this question leads to a very specific conversation, and that is why they are afraid to answer.  That, however, makes us want to make them answer even more.

Our Republic

Where Freedom is a virtue and control is a vice

Our Constitution:

  • Four pages that created, defines, and severely limits our federal government.
  • 70% is internal, administrative, and structural.
  • 30%:  The Enumerated Powers in Article 1, Section 8.
    • 7 National Defense related tasks.
    • 7 Inter-State and foreign Trade related tasks.
  • When federal employees are constrained by our Bill of Rights, the 10th Amendment specifically, the Enumerated Powers, and their Oath of Office, we are free.  When they are not, we are not.

The 10th Amendment:

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.

  • Hated and ignored by the Left, creating cognitive dissonance in them between Socialism and control vs. The Constitution and Freedom.
  • Created by us to protect ourselves from all Leftist/Central Planning forms of government.
  • Called “the foundation of our Constitution” by Thomas Jefferson.
  • The line between Freedom and control along which our Constitution, our fortress wall, is built.
  • Our greatest, but not only, tool in reining in the federal government and its employees.

The Bill of Rights:

  • Our Rights that our governments cannot touch.
  • Created because of how God says that we should treat each other, and because we know very well how governments abuse people.
  • Something never intended to be controlled, modified, or to reside in the hands of government employees.
  • Rights that come from God and that are eternal; not favors from man that are transient.

The Oath of Office:

  • Sworn publicly and willingly to us to obey and defend the Constitution as written in order to guarantee our Freedom.
  • Not sworn to federal employees to obey and defend them by enforcing everything of which they can conceive.
  • Mandatory, regardless of your party or lack thereof.
  • If broken through a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object to evince a design to reduce us under absolute Despotism, the immediate and simplest consequence of which is that the Oath breaker loses all moral and legal authority.

The alternative to Freedom is Control, no matter what they call it:

  • Socialism cannot function without control.  More Socialism requires more control.
  • All Leftist ideologies, whether king or Communism, are simply different flavors of the same thing, and all are blocked by our Constitution and the principles in the Declaration of Independence.
  • The real divide in our Republic is between people that neither want not need government at the center of their lives, and those that are desperate for Central Planning in all things.  Almost all other conflicts being fomented by the Left flow from the reason for that fundamental difference in values.

Our History, Culture, and Law:

Enumerated Powers, Delegated Responsibilities, and the 10th Amendment:

“The plan of the convention declares that the power of Congress, or, in other words, of the national legislature, shall extend to certain enumerated cases. This specification of particulars evidently excludes all pretensions to a general legislative authority, because an affirmative grant of special powers would be absurd, as well as useless, if a general authority was intended.”

– Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 83

“It is the people, and not the judges, who are entitled to say what their constitution means, for the constitution is theirs, it belongs to them and not to their servants in office – any other theory is incompatible with the foundation principles of our government.”

– President Theodore Roosevelt

“If the United States go beyond their powers, if they make a law which the Constitution does not authorize, it is void.”

– Oliver Ellsworth, the Supreme Court’s third Chief Justice

“With respect to the two words “general welfare” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.”

– President James Madison

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce. … The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives and liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement and prosperity of the State.” – James Madison, author of the Constitution

“Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.”

– President Thomas Jefferson

President Thomas Jefferson on Judicial Tyranny:

“Nothing in the Constitution has given them [the federal judges] a right to decide for the Executive, more than to the Executive to decide for them…  The opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves, in their own sphere of action, but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.”

– Letter to Abigail Adams, September 11, 1804

“The original error [was in] establishing a judiciary independent of the nation, and which, from the citadel of the law, can turn its guns on those they were meant to defend, and control and fashion their proceedings to its own will.”

– Letter to John Wayles Eppes, 1807

“Our Constitution . . . intending to establish three departments, co-ordinate and independent that they might check and balance one another, it has given—according to this opinion to one of them alone the right to prescribe rules for the government of others; and to that one, too, which is unelected by and independent of the nation…  The Constitution, on this hypothesis, is a mere thing of wax in the hands of the judiciary, which they may twist and shape into any form they please.”

– Letter to Judge Spencer Roane, Sept. 6, 1819

“You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy.  Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so… and their power [is] the more dangerous, as they are in office for life and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control.  The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots.”

– Letter to William Jarvis, Sept. 28, 1820

“The judiciary of the United States is the subtle corps of sappers and miners constantly working under ground to undermine the foundations of our confederated fabric.  They are construing our constitution from a co-ordination of a general and special government to a general and supreme one alone.  This will lay all things at their feet, and they are too well versed in English law to forget the maxim, ‘boni judicis est ampliare jurisdictionem’ [good judges have ample jurisdiction] …  A judiciary independent of a king or executive alone, is a good thing; but independence of the will of the nation is a solecism, at least in a republican government.”

– Letter to Thomas Ritchie, Dec. 25, 1820

“The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped.”

-Letter to Charles Hammond, August 18, 1821

“The great object of my fear is the Federal Judiciary.  That body, like gravity, ever acting with noiseless foot and unalarming advance, gaining ground step by step and holding what it gains, is engulfing insidiously the special governments into the jaws of that which feeds them.”

– Letter to Judge Spencer Roane, 1821

“At the establishment of our constitutions, the judiciary bodies were supposed to be the most helpless and harmless members of the government.  Experience, however, soon showed in what way they were to become the most dangerous; that the insufficiency of the means provided for their removal gave them a freehold and irresponsibility in office; that their decisions, seeming to concern individual suitors only, pass silent and unheeded by the public at large; that these decisions, nevertheless, become law by precedent, sapping, by little and little, the foundations of the constitution, and working its change by construction, before any one has perceived that that invisible and helpless worm has been busily employed in consuming its substance.  In truth, man is not made to be trusted for life if secured against all liability to account.”

– Letter to A. Coray, October 31, 1823

 “One single object… [will merit] the endless gratitude of the society: that of restraining the judges from usurping legislation.”

– Letter to Edward Livingston, March 25, 1825

President Abraham Lincoln on Judicial Tyranny:

“… The candid citizen must confess that if the policy of the government, upon vital questions, affecting the whole people, is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court, the instant they are made, in ordinary litigation between parties, in personal actions, the people will have ceased to be their own rulers, having, to that extent, practically resigned their government into the hands of that eminent tribunal.”
