Great article. Thanks.
What will this mean for women's rights? Do you intend women to be "citizen(s) of an inferior order united to the society without being allowed all advantages"? As a PA resident I have serious concerns about the intent of this movement.
OK. Move, or don't join. Simple fix.
I will assume you mean that you do find women to be "less than" and may see yourself as an extension of the founders. I disagree. I will never believe that, in the long run of their future, the founders were unable to change their thinking. Just ask the Donald. He seems in a never-ending state of alteration.
Ok Burnetta, I'll bite, " What will this mean for women's right? Do you intend women to be "citizen(s) of an inferior order united to the society without being allowed all advantages"? ""
WHAT !!?? Where did THAT come from?
What precisely is your question and your problem?
Are you perhaps referring to the original issues that America faced when women did not have the right to vote?.
Or in some cases where women were not allowed to own property???
Do NOT read into this things which are not there.
Yes, some of those things did occur in our past, so did slavery. But suggesting that if we return America to a Constitutional Republic, and if we can restore our Government to the Constitution, then we would simultaneously return to the same old mistakes made 200-150 years ago is patently false. It appears you may be deliberately reading things into what Joe Bennett and the rest of us are trying to do which are not there and have not been stated nor even suggested.
If we restore America to the Constitution, will we then restore slavery??
NO - - we will NOT
As a matter of fact Burnetta if you really take the time to read the Constitution you will find that slavery and and woman's suffrage is not in there at all.
Or perhaps your issue is with the phrase "All Men are Created Equal", Gee wiz, it says "Men" and not Men AND women..........
In those days, and also in today's vernacular when used in phrases and in the contexts which the term is applied (" All Men") it is generally taken to mean ALL HUMAN KIND,,, The reader is expected to be educated enough to understand such phrases and dialect.
Don't read into things implications or meanings which are not there, nor ever intended.
Comes from Vattel's, Law of Nations. Discussed here at length with reguard to Obama/Cruz being allowed to be President. I do recommend anyone calling themselves "constitutionalist" read it. To truly (try) to understand what the founders thought, seems you need to expose yourself to the philosophies of the times.
Do not think that many people today who consider the constitution/natural law to be the only right path DO believe that only some particular "superior" group is needed to direct the camps. They would define this as "nature". To me, nothing is written simply or without outside influence. Many folks want all sorts of Christian principles applied to reading of the constitution, but choose to want to set aside other influences.
Truth is, we can't "know" what the founders thought. All we can do is consider the effect of the times that influenced them. Lay nothing aside.
Col. Riley is right. As a PA resident I need to contact Mr. Bennett directly and see what his intentions are.
Burnetta......you note that Joe Bennett's email and phone number is at the bottom of his letter. Please contact Joe directly and get your concerns answered. Knowing Joe, I can assure you he is about all Americans. A hard core man of the constitution.
Burnetta, you need to go back to high school and study "history and the Constitution" ! The 10th Amendment doesn't take away your rights as a woman or put constraints on you. The 10th Amendment defines the states rights and limits to the Federal Government. Our problem is the Obama administration came into office with the idea that "hope and change" gave them the authority of a King or Dictator and they have acted upon it ever since. Most in public life won't say it but I will, Obama is anti-colonialist. He hates any country that in the past or present has subverted another nation for it's own benefits. Taking their oil, gold, iron ore, diamonds, anything of value. Countries like Great Britain, France and of course America. We have been the bully in the world for a long time and the world is changing it's attitude about us. Yes, we have brought the rest of the world up to higher standards of living through our actions even though those actions were presented to us as a lie at times. I love this country and served in it's armed forces for 21 years with tours of duty to Viet Nam and Laos. There is no finer place in the world to live than America. But it makes me sick to see what has happened in the last 8 years under this administration. I have prayed that things would change and maybe with Trump as our new President, things will change and "Make America Greater Again" !! Support the 10th Amendment Movement and let's take back our Country! God Bless You and God Bless America. Fredrick L. Ward, MSgt. USAF, Ret.
Interesting! Worth further investigation.
what amazes me many times is how the tenth amendment goes so un-uses by the states WHO CREATED THE FED GOVT
JOE U R RIGHT THE TENTH AMENDMENT IS A CORNERSTONE FOR SURE. GOV AND STATE OFFICIALS CAN THUS FEND OFF REFUGEE RESETTLEMENTS AND ILLEGALS AND THE TRANS DISASTER BATHROOM TSUNAMI.
PRES DICKGOLFER N CHIEF OHITLER CHANGES WORDS AND USES GEO ORWELL TACTICS TO DO HIS BIDDING.
W/THE BATHROOM LAW HE SAYS GENDER NEUTRAL AS OPPOSED TO WHAT UR BIRTHCERTIFICATE SAYS AND YOUR CHROMOSOMES. HIS 1984 BIG BROTHER APPROACH CAN BE STOPPED
Here's a 10th Amendment issue for all to call their Governor's, Board of Education, and other leaders, newspapers, etc.
