The Battle for the 10th Amendment
The 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution has been much in the news of late, at least at some news sites and broadcast outlets. The most recent report I've seen was today here in this Fox News report.
I think this is a legitimate issue and one that's been long overdue for redress. I think the federal government has abused the Commerce Clause to usurp state and local authority. The question is whether this movement will grow and succeed, or will fizzle and die like so many efforts to return constitutional sanity to our nation.
While there has been some bipartisan effort on this, I am afraid this will be seen as just another move from the right wing and the media will treat it as such.
