Where are they Now? The Tenuous Legacy of the Bill of Rights

This Independence Day, millions of Americans will gather to watch fireworks, grill some burgers and dogs, and celebrate the hard-fought freedoms of our forefathers. But in the heady rush of red, white, and blue patriotism, it’s important to remember what those freedoms actually mean, and to examine whether they still remain intact today.

Common Core vs. Autonomy: It's All About the Money

Here at FreedomWorks, we….well, we know that freedom works. We know that, if the federal government would leave us alone and let market forces work, the American people would flourish and thrive.  Whether it's the NSA revelations, the IRS scandal, or the imposing takeover of our health care system, Americans are seeing a grand expansion of federal control.

Texas Not Impressed With Holder's Persistent Harassment

I'm not sure what it is about this administration, but they're simply not satisfied with the existing federal construct. Undeterred by the recent Supreme Court ruling which found part of the Voting Rights Act unconstitutional, Holder's DOJ announced yesterday that Texas is back in the crosshairs.

I stole your stuff; you're welcome.

Once upon a time in America, there was a family. This family worked hard for what they earned, and they were able to purchase the latest widget. They loved their widget! One day, someone came along and forced them to hand over the widget. This person used said widget for profit for a year, then returned it to the hardworking family. The family rejoiced at the return of the widget, thanked the person who had taken it from them, and they all lived happily ever after.

Federalism, Texas Style

Leave it to the Lone Star State to put up a fight.  Despite unprecedented federal government expansion, Texas is determined to flex their Constitutionally granted state powers.  At the helm is Governor Perry, known for his love of the tenth amendment.

Fifty Shades of Freedom

If you ever want to lose an audience, start talking federalism. Sure, a few of us policy geeks love this foundational principle of American polity but the other 97.4 percent closes the browser window faster than you can say “Alexis de Tocqueville.”

It's Raining Sovereignty in Virginia

Since last Friday, the Virginia General Assembly has passed six separate bills pertaining to Virginia's sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution. Starting with SB417, SB283,  and SB311, the House of Delegates made Virginia the second state after Arizona to pass health care nullification bills through both houses of the state legislature.

Virginia 10th Amendment Rally Draws 2,400 to the Capitol Grounds

Yesterday, I joined a record-breaking Lobby Day crowd of Virginians at the steps of the bell tower on Richmond's Capitol Grounds. I had the privilege to be one of the speakers who addressed the gathering on topics like the Tenth Amendment and its fundamental importance in our American system of divided sovereignty. They didn't need the lesson.
