The following statement was approved by candidates participating in the closed-door strategy meeting at the Tenth Amendment Summit February 25, 2010 in Atlanta Georgia - Read by Ken Ivory at the all-day open session on Feb 26, 2010 http:www.tenthamendmentcenter.com We the people of the several states created a federal government to serve as our limited agent, delegating to the federal government only those limited and few powers listed in the Constitution, and no others. We recognize that the federal government has seized unlimited power over virtually every aspect of Americans lives in violation of the Constitution of the United States, specifically in regards to the 10th Amendment. We call upon freedom-loving citizens everywhere to stand with us as candidates for state and federal office, to pass meaningful and sensible legislation to restore the most critical check and balance deliberately designed into our Constitutional republic: that of strong sovereign states. We pledge to limit and restrain all federal government exercise of power that exceeds in any way the plain language of those few powers listed in the Constitution and to nullify all others that exceed such limit. When we respect the balance of power between the states and federal government according to the Constitution, our country will once again enjoy the dynamic blessings of liberty and prosperity.
