Is it more important to effect change at the State level?

Maybe the focus of Constitutional Patriots needs to shift to our individual nation/state level rather than spitting into the wind at Washington D.C..

We used to be a federation of 13 (now 50) individual nation states who authorized certain powers to the federal officials. They have wrestled power away from the states, and we need to reclaim that authority.

The states can push to repeal the 16th and 17th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution, can push back with the 9th and 10thh Amendments, require proof of eligibility for all elected officials before including them on the ballot.

As a group, Constitutional Patriots are a powerful force, but not more so than the power of the combined states. Election to the local and state level is a much less costly and complex endeavor and should be our focus either for us to run or to fully vet a candidate and add as much coal to that individual’s fire as we are able.

The United States Of America, It’s our country damn it!

    Thanks for this post. I eventually agree with what you are saying. I have been talking about this subject a lot lately with my father so hopefully this will get him to see my point of view. Fingers crossed!
