In response to the post for: TENTH AMENDMENT MOVEMENT,,,,RELYING TO HEAVILY ON IT?.
I would like to disagree. The only rights we have are granted to us by God. The Ohio and U.S. Constitutions we have reaffirm those rights to our citizens. We need to stand on those rights or the only thing remaining is blood shed. The author of your original article is ignorant. He is using his personal feelings and thoughts not facts to support his case. Our proposed Constitutional Amendment if accepted by the people of Ohio will hold government accountable and works best when government is closer to the people as stated by our founding fathers. If you want to discredit Glenn Beck and Tea Party Groups posting articles against the 10th Amendment does not support your case. To discredit people trying to get involved to take a stand against an out of control government is counter productive and plain stupid. We need to educate people on what truth is and there rights and where they are derived. If you want to educate people on how they can be deceived by a Glenn Beck and certain political leaders but do not belittle people who are trying to make a difference.
In light of the present abuses by government against the people, it is time for the people, once again, to stand against the destroyers of Liberty and reclaim their God-given Rights and bind government to the letter and "spirit" of our state and federal Constitutions.
But the people, generally, are lost and have forgotten their heritage as Americans. They have neglected their duty to know and understand our system of governance and the principles upon which it was established. Few hear the call to lead the people, and fewer still have answered.
Our country is finally awakening to the perils knocking at our door. History is in the making once again, for it is our turn, this generation, to stand united and take action to preserve our American way of life, a system founded upon Godly principles and unique in the world.
Our PURPOSE is to bring government back into compliance with the Constitutions and serve the best interests of the people. Our Constitutions do not provide adequate protections against government usurpations in today's political environment. We are introducing language that, when enacted into constitutional law, will secure to the people sufficient remedies to hold their public servants accountable when they operate outside their constitutional limits.
Our INTENT is to restore the fundamental principles of good government, under God, and with such leadership that we can bring integrity, honor and dignity back into the institutions of government. Though public servants proclaim that they serve the people, their deeds reveal otherwise.
Under the principles of good government, America will become again a nation of peace, preserving the individual Rights and Liberties of the people over all other agendas. Trust in the American people by the nations of the world will be restored. Bankers and corporations will be restrained from perverting our systems of money and commerce. The Military Industrial Complex can be converted into an instrument of peace and development. The American people can, once again, feel safe and secure in the ordinary course of their lives.
Now is the time to stop government usurpation in America. The Rule of Law must apply to public servants and citizens, alike.
It begins here. It begins now. It begins with us.
The SOVEREIGNTY AMENDMENT TO THE OHIO CONSTITUTION proposed herein is designed to return power to the people, to hold state and federal government in strict compliance to our Constitutions. It represents the voice of the people, by the people, for the people to exercise their unalienable Right to amend the Constitutions and control our state and federal governments.
Speak up and support this great cause. This is all about YOU!

Al, thanks for your response.
We encourage people to send their comments wether or not we agree......this is how we all learn.
I posted the article by the unknown author simply to show everyone that it is not just our federal government usurping our 10th Amendment rights, but also our state and county governments.....THESE MUST NOT BE IGNORED!
I want to make it perfectly clear that I did not post the article as a discredit to the 10th Amendment......I TOTALLY SUPPORT THE 10TH AMENDMENT. And Al, you are right....our rights come from GOD....the Constitution just enumerates them. GOD gave us these rights while we were still in the womb.
I probably should have re-titled the article.....I didn't realize people would construe the meaning of the article other than what I intended, which I stated above.
Also, my intention was NOT to discredit or offend the Tea Party or 912 groups and if that is the way it was taken then I am VERY SORRY for that.
I DID intend to rattle their cage a little and get them thinking about a few things. I know there are alot of good people in these patriotic movements and I encourage them, but in my opinion alot of time and money is being wasted by focusing to heavily at the federal level instead of where the real power lies....LOCALLY....in the county Sheriff and 10th Amendment states rights and people rights. This area is not being addressed enough or properly. Maybe I was a little too harsh rattling the cage, but sometimes it is necessary to get people thinking....it prompted you to write didn't it?
My views and comments about Glenn Beck remain firm so I cannot apologize for that. The very first time I viewed him I thought he was a phoney and misleading people. It is an old communist trick to get a national figure to start sympathizing with the people....telling them what they want to hear....making them think he is on their side....then leading them down a road that goes no where. Glenn Beck does this....he riles you up but gives you no real solutions....Beck never goes all the way exposing the real problems that foundationaly create the peripheral ones (world bankers, federal reserve etc)....he frequently contradicts himself. Rupert Murdock who owns Fox is an elitist, do you realy think he would allow anyone to go all the way with the truth.
ALL the media, including Fox, is government controlled. Fox is not on our side! They are in the game of "good cop" / "bad cop". They are playing the good cop. When Obama threatened to exclude them it was a great act for our benefit. You didn't see anything come of it did you?
Al, you know what I'm saying about Beck is true. Some proof of it is that a few tea party and 912 leaders have called or e-mailed me saying they don't know what to do next (this is what I mean....led down a road going no where)....and you know 2 of these people. The point is, we all need to work together on the same page where our efforts count the most and this is not happening....groups are splintered all over and with varied agendas.
Most tea party and 912 people (including some of the leaders) are novices, having no experience in the political process, community organizing, or knowledge of the various deceptive tricks used by unscrupulous politicians to get themselves elected or to manipulate our minds.
Americans have neglected their country for too long and have not been involved. I don't know if we have enough time for all of this sudden educational process.
My fear is that if the tea and 912 people are not smart about how they go about things and where they concentrate their time and efforts, then I think the whole patriot movement could be doomed to failure.
Constructive criticism must be accepted and entertained by these patriots just as I have accepted yours or something is not right....that something could be a spirit of pride....and we all know pride always comes before the fall of any person or natiion.
The last point I would like to address and apologize for is the term "tea baggers" that I used in my commentary in the post you mentioned above. I had no idea that was a slang term for a homosexual act as you have pointed out to me. How the hell was I supposed to know....I don't keep up with homosexual slang, nor do I want to, but I apologize anyway.
Thanks again for your comments Al, I hope I have made myself clear.
