Did the US Constitution create a National Government or a Federal Government?
Posted on May 28, 2011 0

The Myth
The government created by the United States Constitution is a powerful “national” government with political authority concentrated in Washington DC. The States are mostly controlled by Washington DC. This national government can pass any laws it wishes and the States must comply. These laws can touch each and every individual living in this country. The national government can regulate every aspect of private and commercial activity throughout the entire country.
The Truth
The government created by our Constitution is actually much closer to the “federal” type of government that is the weak central government tying together a confederation of independent sovereign nations. The framers if the Constitution created a unique variation of the federal type government. Their new creation is stronger than a traditional federal government but is much closer to this type in terms of power and centralization of political authority compared to a national government.
The States are mostly sovereign entities that serve as checks on the power of the federal government. The federal government is sovereign over States only in areas spelled out in the Constitution. Federal laws can only reach down below the State level in a limited number of well defined areas mostly relating to taxation. The Constitution leaves with the States the vast majority of government powers affecting lives of the people living in the States.

Um... I think you must mean, when a Korean stem-cell researcher comes up with a stunning new technology concerning stem cells, you should be extra skeptical. Not sure where the Progressive Politician commenting on climate science comes in?... Oh... wait... she doesn't..

There is lots of nut jobs-your side has there fair share.
As you said Koresh was crazy so in your logic that the deaths of the children was nothing as the target was a crazy person?
You need to tread careful here with promoting killing crazy people-history has heard this drum beat before.
Nice deflection at the end, but smells of stupid progressive tactics.
In your infinite stupidity and lack of morals, you defend David Koresh, a known pedophile and rapist.

It figures. You're a whack job.

It was Koresh who wouldn't let the women and children go, using them as human shields.

As usual, you have your fat head stuffed up your fat azz.

""Among Koresh's teachings were the "New Light Message" and a philosophy he equated to "winning" in the bedroom, according to Reavis' book. The teachings set forth that "spiritual weddings" would take place between Koresh and any female follower he felt that God had ordered him to bed. That included underage girls and legally married women. The men should observe celibacy. Followers observed the order as a test of their faith. Some refused to participate and left.
David could have whatever woman God gave him, he once told survivor Clive Doyle. Another woman God told Koresh that he could have -- superstar singer Madonna.

God had also mentioned something else, Koresh said. The folks at the Davidian compound should start building an "Army for God," Doyle recalls.""

You have to either believe the author of that book is credible or he isn't. There's no in between.
If he is, it changes the whole narrative about LBJ's perspective on civil rights.
If he isn't, Kessler perpetrated false witness against a former president in the most conceivably possible egregious way.
But while a reporter for the Wall Street Journal in the New York bureau, Kessler's reporting won awards from the American Political Science Association, United Press International and the Associated Press.
And six of his books have been on the New York Times Bestseller list.
Guess everyone will have to decide for themselves. But that one statement changes the entire landscape if what LBJ allegedly said is true.
Nobody has disputed this quote, that I can find. Some reviewers were a little suspicious of the author's motives, but no one involved has called him a liar.

Obama's, "I don't need Congress...I have a phone and a pen.", says it all regarding his respect for "old law". We once had a sense of stability coming from the White House but Obama is undermining the foundation of logic and common sense that the Constitution previously instilled in that institution. Now, the scales have tipped in favor of chaos and instability, thanks to Barack's thumb of arrogance. He's acting like he thinks he's a king and no law applies to him. If it wasn't for him playing that race card he would have already been impeached.

The final product the framers of the Constitution created is a government that is mostly federal because each State is mostly a sovereign entity. Our government is not completely federal because the States are not completely sovereign as they are in a true federation. When the States ratified the Constitution they transferred some aspects of their sovereignty to the federal government but retained the majority of their government powers. These aspects of sovereignty they transferred are clearly spelled out in the Constitution and relate to the relationship of the State with foreign governments and other States. The States retained virtually all of their government powers that deal with the individual citizens that live in the State and commercial organizations that call that State home.
The new constitution specifically denied the States those government powers that led to problems under the Articles of Confederation. Only the federal government can negotiate treaties with foreign countries, regulate the commerce between the States, impose duties on imported goods, and create money.
The new government appears to be a national government from the outside because there is one government for foreign nations to deal with and there is a central government that keeps the peace between the individual States. From the inside the new government appears to be a federal government because the country is a collection of mostly sovereign States.
It is clear that the framers of the Constitution wanted the government of the United States to remain mostly federal in nature because they added many features to the Constitution that they believed would prevent the government from becoming a national government.. These protections include limiting the US government to only a predetermined list of powers that are clearly spelled out. The US government is made up of three separate branches that can check usurpations by the others. Because the States are mostly sovereign they make the majority of decisions for themselves that affect the lives of their citizens. This disperses government power throughout the entire country. The federal government remains small because it does not have to legislate and plan for the individual citizens of the country, that is left to the States. Because the federal government was meant to remain small and limited, the States can keep the federal government in check.
Sadly the progressives have weakened all of these provisions by disregarding the original meaning and purpose of the Constitution. They weakened all the protections the framers placed in the Constitution to the point the protections are virtually gone. The progressives have transferred to the federal government those functions and government powers that were meant to remain with the States. Because these functions and powers were transferred from the States the federal government has grown in size so much the States can no longer adequately provide a check against the power of the federal government. The Sates are no longer sovereign because the federal government constantly passes laws that interfere with their sovereignty. The federal government first got the States to comply with these unconstitutional laws by providing money for the States to implement these laws. Large groups of the citizens became dependent on federally funded programs created by these laws. If the States later refuse to comply with existing unconstitutional laws or future laws the federal government uses the funding for these programs as a weapon to make the States comply.
The Progressives have moved us so far away from the federal government created by the Constitution that our government is now a national government that has proved to be as harmful to individual liberty and our prosperity as the governments our founding fathers fled.
