Chris Walsh... Tenth Amendment Center Article

by: Les Carpenter
Rational Nation USA

Chris Walsh, fellow conservative blogger over at my thoughts on freedom recently had his first article published in the Tenth Amendment Center. A strong advocate of limited government he offers an intriguing alternatives to stem the growth of our Leviathan federal government and return more power to the states.

Here are a couple breif excerpts from his article:
The federal government relies on plunder, mainly in the form of income taxes, to feed it’s overreaching tentacles and this is perfectly Constitutional as set forth in Article I, Section 8, Clause 1 along with the Sixteenth Amendment. These do not however specify how these taxes are to be collected and currently the Internal Revenue Service is charged with this task.

But what if the states had the ability to take control of the purse strings and starve the beast back to it’s enumerated powers? We the people, through our state legislatures would have the ability to affirm what we believe the role and oversight of the federal government should be in our daily lives through a Federal Tax Escrow Account.
 Please visit the  Tenth Amendment Center to read the conclusion to Chris's article.

  2. @Chris,

    Brilliant article!

    The States should always have sovereignty, in all matters, be they fiscal, moral, or societal. The Federal government needs to take care of the mail, the highways, and national security.

    My two cents.
