The 10th Amendment is the crux of the entire problem we're grappling with. Apparently when Chief Justice Roberts got his mail-order JD they only sent him the first nine amendments. Maybe Nancy Pelosi stole it from his mailman. We lost this battle long ago, with the XVIth amendment and Madison v. Marbury. As Ress wrote below, it's going to take a long time to undo all the harm we've done to ourselves. But, let's believe that we can do it. The TEA party movement is a great start. Writers like Mr. Mitchell certainly help.

I wish the Republican Platform was binding.

Why? Because the GOP, for all intents and purposes, has just proposed to eliminate the Department of Education, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Energy, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Health and Human Services, along with a host of other government programs, agencies, and departments.
