James Madison on "Parchment Barriers"

  "Governments don’t limit their own power, and documents can’t enforce themselves."

--Michael Boldin, Tenth Amendment Center


The "Commerce Clause" in 2 Minutes

Simply put, under the Constitution, the Commerce Clause is not something that authorizes the federal government to regulate, control, or prohibit anything and everything they want.


The Right to Keep and Bear Arms is a Natural Right

The 2nd Amendment doesn’t create a right to keep and bear arms. What is does is prohibit the government from violating the natural right you already have.


Nullification 101: George Nicholas at the Virginia Ratifying Convention

 “In like manner, these conditions will be binding on Congress. They can exercise no power that is not expressly granted them.”

This makes up some of the foundational principles of nullification.


Constitution 101: Definitions Don't Change Over Time

What does the power to establish "Post Offices and post Roads" teach us about reading the Constitution? Quite a bit. Getting it wrong can lead to some serious problems.


The Constitution and the Power to "Declare War"

Pre-emptive strikes and undeclared offensive military expeditions are not powers delegated to the executive branch in the Constitution, and therefore, are unconstitutional. Thomas Jefferson stated this quite eloquently when, in 1801, he said that, as President, he was “unauthorized by the Constitution, without the sanction of Congress, to go beyond the line of defense.”


General Welfare does not mean "Anything You Want"

One of the most-maligned parts of the Constitution is the so-called “general welfare" clause.


States are not Required to Help the Federal Government

Even though the Supreme Court often gets things wrong on the Constitution, the Prigg case has not only stood the test of time, it has helped cement James Madison’s advice that states and individuals should refuse “to comply with officers of the Union.”


"Constitutional" Doesn't Mean What They Say it Means

"We reject the notion of a “living, breathing” constitution. We recognize that the legal meaning of the Constitution today is exactly the same as the moment the words were ratified and given legal force. And we know that meaning is what defines the word constitutional, even if the federal courts happen to disagree."


Constitutional View: The Founders on Executive Power

Under the Constitution, the president was delegated the authority to execute laws passed by Congress, not create them with the stroke of a pen.


"Regulate Commerce" Does Not Mean "Mandate" or "Prohibit"

Under the Constitution, the delegated power to regulate “commerce among the several states” does not include a power to mandate commerce, or prohibit it.

-Michael Boldin, Tenth Amendment Center


What the Constitution Says About Federal Land Holdings

"Here’s the short version. There is no power under the Constitution for the feds to obtain and retain land for whatever they want. Like under the Supremacy Clause, they’re only authorized to exercise power when done in pursuance of the other delegated powers in the Constitution."


The 10th Amendment in One Lesson

 “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
