Draft of the Kentucky Resolutions – October 1798

7 01 2011

I will be sending this to the Governor of Arizona to help her in her battle against the federal government.
I know that this is long and tough to read but well worth it. This is the first time that the States had to remind the federal government that they had limited powers over the states. The draft of this resolution was written by Thomas Jefferson for Kentucky against the congress and President John Adams. This is what every state must assert and tell the feds to go scratch! Notice the date people. When was the Constitution ratified? You can use this site to find that out as well.

1. _Resolved_, That the several States composing the United States of America, are not united on the principle of unlimited submission to their General Government; but that, by a compact under the style and title of a Constitution for the United States, and of amendments thereto, they constituted a General Government for special purposes, — delegated to that government certain definite powers, reserving, each State to itself, the residuary mass of right to their own self-government; and that whensoever the General Government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force; that to this compact each State acceded as a State, and is an integral party, its co-States forming, as to itself, the other party: that the government created by this compact was not made the exclusive or final judge of the extent of the powers delegated to itself; since that would have made its discretion, and not the Constitution, the measure of its powers; but that, as in all other cases of compact among powers having no common judge, each party has an equal right to judge for itself, as well of infractions as of the mode and measure of redress.

I think the governor of Florida should take steps to close its borders. I lived in Miami for twenty years or more and let me tell you the number of Cubans and Haitians coming into Miami is crazy. Go to http://keybiscayne.infopop.net/4/OpenTopic?a=tpc&s=142292854&f=809293084&m=7692902086 this has got to stop. I also lived in Jupiter, FL and they lease a building to a group that get work for illegal immigrats. We spoke to the police who’s office is in the same complex and they told us the federal government told them they can not do anything. US borders that’s a joke!
