Reclaiming Our Liberty

The federal courts, and the U.S. Supreme Court in particular, have eroded our personal liberty and the liberty to be secured to us through our states under the sovereign powers retained by them under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the U.S. Constitution. The most recent and most egregious example being the Supreme Court's decision in Obergefell v. Hodges by which the court redefined marriage.

If this process of judicial tyranny is not stopped, the new rights will be "added" to the U.S. Constitution by any combination of five Supreme Court Justices who want to "find" a new right, thereby eroding further the sovereignty of the states. Furthermore, this power can assert new rights in conflict with existing rights and assert that those new rights trump the "old" existing rights. For example, might some new right to be protected in public from people carrying guns be used to limit the Second Amendment right to bear arms to a right to be secure in our homes (as perhaps suggested in the Fourth Amendment) and guns are only to be used to secure our homes?

The liberty of our citizens is not secure any time the Supreme Court convenes to decide a constitutional issue. They essentially sit as a constitutional convention without the countervailing balance of a real convention whose proposed changes to the Constitution would have to be ratified by the states.

Thus, it is time for the citizens of Tennessee to "reclaim their liberty from the federal courts."
