Question Of The Week, 1/8/06

Good morning. Before we get to this weeks question I want to ask you to go to your 2006 calendar. If it is not already on there write Bill Of Rights Day on December 15. Between now and then figure out a way to celebrate each of your God given rights this December. This weeks Question Of The Week is, (in your own words) what is the meaning of the Tenth Amendment to the United States 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." I will post my answer in the Comment Section Monday night.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.

Both the Ninth and Tenth Amendments make it clear that powers not specifically delegated to the federal branch cannot automatically be assumed to be in the federal branch's power. What the Founders didn't take into account was the power of the judicial branch.

David,

Thanks for being a guest on the Straight Talk program.

If you get a chance, send me an form-mail email so I have your address. I was going to put a photo of you on Jerry's blog (if you want), but couldn't find one.

Thanks,

This gives power to the states to make decisions that don't directly violate the peoples rights such as the right to travel or own a gun. Abortion could even be desrbibed as an issue for the states since it is not mentioned in the Constitution.

But with a strong central government who needs this amendment. sarcasm.

The Tenth Amendment, the forgotten/ignored/infringed amendment. The meaning is simple, if it is not mentioned in the United States Constitution the federal government isn't to touch it. I want to thank you for stopping by to answer this weeks question.

God Bless America, God Save The Republic.
