    Sad but true. Decentralization is the only way. We have to somehow take some of the power conceded by the states to the federal government back. Unfortunately, the federal government isn’t going to hand it back, so the only option we have is tucked in Article V of our Constitution. Thomas Jefferson said, “In terms of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind man down by the chains of the Constitution.”

    The only way we can even begin this long road towards regaining state duality and eventual supremacy, is if we get the states to use the Article V process to amend the Constitution. We have to do as Jefferson said, bind these men down. This is why I have taken the position as Legislative Coordinator with Compact For America. This is our goal. We will be working with States to ratify a balanced budget amendment into the Constitution in a way that gives the power to spend in Washington back to the States.

    This is the only way. Nullification is only a temporary solution, we must also bind the federal government down by the chains of the Constitution. Civil disobedience is warranted and necessary, but we also must reassert the rule of law here in America. Many people think the Constitution is outdated, but using the article V process via the States will squash such assertions.
