by Michael Snyder, End Of The American Dream:
The federal government was originally created to protect our rights. I know that sounds really bizarre to many of you, but it is the truth. In fact, we actually have a document called “the Constitution” which is supposed to guarantee that certain rights are never taken away from us under any circumstances. Sadly, the American people have allowed those rights to be steadily eroded for decades, and now the federal government in Washington has launched an all-out assault on some of our most cherished liberties and freedoms. The bomb that Emperor Biden dropped on 100 million Americans last week represented one of the most pivotal moments in American history. Previous generations of Americans sacrificed so much so that we could live free, but now the regime in Washington seems to be absolutely obsessed with dragging all of us into full-blown tyranny. For those of us that deeply love this country, this is very difficult to deal with emotionally.

At least if Biden was willing to talk things over with us rationally, there would be some hope for resolving this crisis. But that is not going to happen. In fact, we are being told that Biden plans to “run over” any governors that get in his way.
There will be no compromises and no backing down.
Sadly, at this point attempting to negotiate with Emperor Biden and his minions is essentially like trying to negotiate with Emperor Palpatine and his minions.
So what can we do?
In Washington, our representatives should have already filed articles of impeachment. I know that such an effort has zero chance of success because the Democrats control both houses of Congress, but it would be a symbolic move that would let people across the country know that someone in Washington is actually listening.
Much more importantly, it is time for state governments to start taking their power back.
We need a “new federalism”, but it wouldn’t actually be new at all.
If you ask most Americans what the 10th Amendment says, the vast majority of them would not be able to tell you.
And that is because the liberal elite do not want it to be widely discussed.
This is the official text of the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution…
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.
Many people are shocked to learn that this is what our Constitution actually says.
The federal government is only allowed to exercise the very limited powers that are specifically granted to it by the U.S. Constitution.
Otherwise, all other powers are reserved for the states and the people.
Our founders always intended for the federal government to be very limited in size and scope, and the text of the 10th Amendment could not be any clearer.
Unfortunately, over the decades we have seen the federal government grab more and more power, and our courts and our state governments have allowed it to happen.
It is time to say that enough is enough.
Joe Biden says that his patience is “wearing thin”, but the truth is that our patience with him and those like him should have been gone a long time ago.
If we don’t stand up now, we may not get another chance. We need to demand that our state governments do everything that they can to resist this unconstitutional power grab and start taking their power back.
The good news is that some state governors are already starting to take action. For example, just check out what Greg Abbott is doing in Texas…
Biden’s vaccine mandate is an assault on private businesses.
I issued an Executive Order protecting Texans’ right to choose whether they get the COVID vaccine & added it to the special session agenda.
Texas is already working to halt this power grab.
But this should just be the tip of the iceberg.
We need our state governments to barrage the court system with cases, and I believe that the 10th Amendment could be the key to so many of those cases.
Emperor Biden and his minions have gone way, way over the line with these unprecedented mandates. We have never seen anything like them before, and that is because no other president would have dared to try something so blatantly unconstitutional.
