/" /> Reclaiming The Republic

Skip to: Site menu | Main content

There is no greater issue facing our Republic today then Federal Tyranny. If we work together we can save our individual liberties and sovereignty, the sovereignty for each State and the Republic (all the States collectively), and most importantly save our Constitution!

The States must take back the roles, responsibilities, and powers that were reserved to them and were not expressly delegated to the general government. The process to do this is simple. It only takes one State to initiate an audit and then call upon their fellow States to join in a Convention to audit the Constitution we refer to as a Convention for Republic Review.

The concept of Republic Review (Executive Summary)

THE IRREFUTABLE ARGUMENT FOR REPUBLIC REVIEW
 Background:
 After writing three books on Constitutional subject matter (two of which have been published and may be found at: http://mobiusstrippress.com/store.html).   I have engaged several different groups in my work and travels, speaking with them on the Constitutionality of Republic Review.  I am frequently asked to provide a summary and having done this orally a few times, I have decided to provide a formal document for promulgation and your delectation. If one would like the 15 second pitch it would be this: “Eighty percent of what is spent by the Federal government is unconstitutional and Republic Review is the only process that will stop this and place the Federal government back within the framework and scope of the Constitution.”

If you are looking for a solution that can quickly fix our out-of-control general (i.e. Federal) government, then I assert that this can only be done through “Republic Review.” If the 15 second pitch did not pique your interest, then I simply ask you to take 5 minutes to consider the following Executive Summary. If you are ready to dive deeper into the details, then I will  gladly go into them , but I would tell you that reading my books will give you almost all the answers as to what, why, where, and how. If you want to schedule a presentation for an event or a group, then let me know.

CITATIONS FROM THE FEDERALIST PAPERS THAT SUBSTANTIATE STATE SUPREMACY IN ALL THINGS NOT ENUMNERATED IN THE CONSTITUTION

1. “In the first place it is to be remembered that the general government is not to be charged with the whole power of making and administering laws. Its jurisdiction is limited to certain enumerated objects, which concern all the members of the republic, but which are not to be attained by the separate provisions of any.” Federalist No. 14 James Madison


2. “The separate governments in a confederacy may aptly be compared with the feudal baronies; with this advantage in their favor, that from the reasons already explained, they will generally possess the confidence and good-will of the people, and with so important a support, will be able effectually to oppose all encroachments of the national government.” Federalist No. 17 Alexander Hamilton


3. “Independent of parties in the national legislature itself, as often as the period of discussion arrived, the State legislatures, who will always be not only vigilant but suspicious and jealous guardians of the rights of the citizens against encroachments from the federal government, will constantly have their attention awake to the conduct of the national rulers, and will be ready enough, if any thing improper appears, to sound the alarm to the people, and not only to be the VOICE, but, if necessary, the ARM of their discontent.” Federalist No. 26 Alexander Hamilton


4. “As in republics strength is always on the side of the people, and as there are weighty reasons to induce a belief that the State governments will commonly possess most influence over them… there is greater probability of encroachments by the members upon the federal head, than by the federal head upon the members… the safest course to lay them altogether aside, and to confine our attention wholly to the nature and extent of the powers as they are delineated in the Constitution.” Federalist No. 31 Alexander Hamilton


5. “It merits particular attention in this place, that the laws of the Confederacy, as to the ENUMERATED and LEGITIMATE objects of its jurisdiction, will become the SUPREME LAW of the land; to the observance of which all officers, legislative, executive, and judicial, in each State, will be bound by the sanctity of an oath. Thus the legislatures, courts, and magistrates, of the respective members, will be incorporated into the operations of the national government AS FAR AS ITS JUST AND CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY EXTENDS.” Federalist Papers Number 34 Alexander Hamilton


6. “We have seen that in the new government, as in the old, the general powers are limited; and that the States, in all unenumerated cases, are left in the enjoyment of their sovereign and independent jurisdiction.” Federalist No. 40 James Madison


7. “The State government will have the advantage of the Federal government, whether we compare them in respect to the immediate dependence of the one on the other; to the weight of personal influence which each side will possess; to the powers respectively vested in them; to the predilection and probable support of the people; to the disposition and faculty of resisting and frustrating the measures of each other.” Federalist No. 45 James Madison


8. “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite. The former will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation, and foreign commerce; with which last the power of taxation will, for the most part, be connected. The powers reserved to the several States will extend to all the objects which, in the ordinary course of affairs, concern the lives, liberties, and properties of the people, and the internal order, improvement, and prosperity of the State.” Federalist No. 45 James Madison


9. “A compact between independent sovereigns, founded on ordinary acts of legislative authority, can pretend to no higher validity than a league or treaty between the parties. It is an established doctrine on the subject of treaties, that all the articles are mutually conditions of each other; that a breach of any one article is a breach of the whole treaty; and that a breach, committed by either of the parties, absolves the others, and authorizes them, if they please, to pronounce the compact violated and void.” Federalist No. 43 James Madison


10. “Were it admitted, however, that the Federal government may feel an equal disposition with the State governments to extend its power beyond the due limits, the latter (the States) would still have the advantage in the means of defeating such encroachments.” Federalist No. 46 James Madison


11. “But ambitious encroachments of the federal government, on the authority of the State governments, would not excite the opposition of a single State, or of a few States only. They would be signals of general alarm. Every government would espouse the common cause. A correspondence would be opened. Plans of resistance would be concerted. One spirit would animate and conduct the whole.” Federalist No. 46 James Madison


12. “The conclusion which I am warranted in drawing from these observations is, that a mere demarcation on parchment of the constitutional limits of the several departments, is not a sufficient guard against those encroachments which lead to a tyrannical concentration of all the powers of government in the same hands.” Federalist No. 48 James Madison


13. “If, then, the courts of justice are to be considered as the bulwarks of a limited Constitution against legislative encroachments, this consideration will afford a strong argument for the permanent tenure of judicial offices, since nothing will contribute so much as this to that independent spirit in the judges which must be essential to the faithful performance of so arduous a duty.” Federalist No. 78 Alexander Hamilton


14. “It may in the last place be observed that the supposed danger of judiciary encroachments on the legislative authority, which has been upon many occasions reiterated, is in reality a phantom. Particular misconstructions and contraventions of the will of the legislature may now and then happen; but they can never be so extensive as to amount to an inconvenience, or in any sensible degree to affect the order of the political system. This may be inferred with certainty, from the general nature of the judicial power, from the objects to which it relates, from the manner in which it is exercised, from its comparative weakness, and from its total incapacity to support its usurpations by force.” Federalist No. 81 Alexander Hamilton
a. I believe the “phantom” Hamilton spoke of was a ploy, because this is precisely were Madison with his help of his close friend and protégé John Marshall subverted and perverted the Constitution with Marshalls unconstitutional opinions in the following landmark cases:
i. Marbury v Madison, 1803
ii. Fletcher v Peck, 1810
iii. Sturges v. Crowninshield, 1819
iv. Dartmouth College v. Woodward, 1819
v. McCulloch v. Maryland, 1819
vi. Cohens v. Virginia, 1821
vii. Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824
b. Each of these cases created what I call unconstitutional footings for future usurpations.


15. “We may safely rely on the disposition of the State legislatures to erect barriers against the encroachments of the national authority. If the foregoing argument is a fallacy, certain it is that I am myself deceived by it, for it is, in my conception, one of those rare instances in which a political truth can be brought to the test of a mathematical demonstration.” Federalist No. 85 Alexander Hamilton


16. Article 49 Title: Method of Guarding Against the Encroachments of Any One Department of Government by Appealing to the People Through a Convention Federalist No. 49 James Madison
– This is not speaking of an Article V Convention or what is commonly referred to as a Convention of States
– This is an example of an administrative Convention that would audit the Constitution or again what I refer to as “Republic Review.”
– Lest we forget that most all of the States in their ratification certification stipulated that there needed to be a Bill of Rights and they included a demand for the 10th Amendment (States’ Rights).
