    The Problem
    Over the past 100 or so years, the federal government has increasingly grown in power, reach and intrusiveness. Today, under
    President Obama and a very progressive Democratic Congress, that reach has created nothing short of a fearful “Master” for the
    citizens and states of this country. It has to stop.
    Part of the Solution
    The states, under the auspices of the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, must exercise their rights to reclaim that which rightfully
    belongs to them and to the people of this country. To do that, it begins with the 10th Amendment, which reads in part, “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.” The Tenth Amendment defines the total scope of federal power as being that specifically granted by the
    Constitution of the United States and no more.
    How do states reclaim power?
    The states must create legislation that re-invokes their rights and the rights of the people under the 10th Amendment of the U.S.
    Constitution with regard to the federal government. This legislation, commonly referred to as “10th Amendment” or “Sovereignty”
    resolutions or law, is a form of “nullification legislation.”
    Nullification
    When a state ‘nullifies’ a federal law, it is proclaiming that the law in question is void and inoperative, or ‘non-effective,’ within
    the boundaries of that state; or, in other words, not a law as far as that state is concerned.
    Two key forms of nullification today
    10th Amendment Resolutions
    These non-binding resolutions, often called “state sovereignty resolutions” do no carry the force of law. Instead, they are intended
    to be a statement of the legislature of the state. They play an important role, however. If you owned an apartment building and
    had a tenant not paying rent, you wouldn’t show up with an empty truck to kick them out without first serving notice. That’s how
    we view these Resolutions – as serving “notice and demand” to the Federal Government to “cease and desist any and all activities
    outside the scope of their constitutionally-delegated powers.” Follow-up, of course, is a must. Idaho has passed just such a
    resolution, or “Sovereignty Bill”, called HJM004.
    Nullification Laws
    This is the next step in the sovereignty legislation process. After passing the non-binding resolution by state legislatures, those
    that intend to follow through on this intention to reclaim their rights from the federal government, will likely pass, and sign into
    law, actual nullification language that will be enforced by the state. This is far more powerful than a resolution because it openly
    challenges the federal government under the Constitution’s provisions and separation of powers. An example of this is Montana’s
    Firearms Freedom Act. The FFA declares that any firearm made and retained in-state is beyond the authority of Congress under
    its constitutional power to regulate commerce among the states. The FFA is primarily a Tenth Amendment challenge to the powers
    of Congress under the “commerce clause,” with firearms as the object. Idaho has not, to date, passed any nullification law.

    “The most terrifying words in the English language are:
    I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”

    "Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases:
    If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."
    Ronald Reagan

    back off dd im with you. what i said was as long as washington tells the states do it our way or loose your funding. nothing is going to change.you make it sound as if i dont care and i do nothing. without going into details i will tell you , you cant be any farther away from the truth!im a realist not a dreamer and i also study history. since history repeats itself over and over its very easy to see whats happening and whats going to happen.our country is on a downward spiral and its going to be next to impossible to stop. fed. gov. has gotten so out of control, and voting NOW is the only way short of a revolution to stop it.we let them take away school prayer, the pledge because of the word god, christ out of christmas etc.things will change when we have politicans that are not afraid to be NOT politically correct

    From Idaho's Governor, Butch Otter in response to a letter of support to his using the 10th amendment against Obama and crew ;

    Dear Dwaine,

    Thank you for contacting me about the federal government. I appreciate the opportunity to respond.

    I believe in and support all the rights guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution, the Bill of Rights and Idaho Constitution. I have championed these rights throughout my political career, standing against government intrusion into the privacy and freedoms of individual citizens.

    I have been particularly concerned about the expansion of the federal government's authority into areas traditionally - and in my view constitutionally - reserved to the states. That was one of the reasons I decided to leave Congress and run for governor, to exercise the legitimate problem-solving authority that states are uniquely empowered and qualified to use as laboratories of the republic.

    I firmly believe in states' rights specifically protected by the 10th Amendment. It is my opinion that over many years the balance of power has been distorted and the federal government has taken authority that was never intended by the U.S. Constitution. My goal as your governor is to empower Idaho to be all that America was meant to be and to empower Idahoans to be the architects of their own destiny. I hope you will join me in that endeavor.

    Thanks again for contacting me. Please keep me informed of any state government issues of concern to you.

    As Always - Idaho, "Esto Perpetua"

    CLO/sg C.L. "Butch" Otter

    Governor of Idaho
