Six Examples of Federal Government Overreach as we Move Toward a Total Takeover of Individual and States Rights

Everyone with even a half a brain knows that the federal government is out of control and continues to overreach in its power grab, while completely disregarding the Constitution, states rights, and individual rights and liberties.

The federal government, has its tyrannical hand in every facet of our lives, no matter how mundane it may seem, right down to regulating our toilet seat. And it’s nothing new, governments always work towards, gaining more power and control, and their gains are only limited by how hard the people push back.

An example of very strong push back came after the Sandy Hook “shooting”, when government tried to use that event as a spring-board to gain public support for enacting wide sweeping gun bans and regulations.

But we said no – we got behind the NRA, we flooded the mail boxes (both digital and physical) of our states congress people, we used the internet to get organized and to get the word out about the truth and what they were trying to pull.

We said no… no we will not turn in our guns… we said that it doesn’t matter if you pass some unconstitutional law or sign some “executive order” we will not abide by it – this was evident by the huge buying frenzy of AR-15’s and ammo –  IF YOU WANT THEM COME AND TAKE EM!

We won that battle because we got organized and stood up – but we have not won the war, the war against the power grab is never over, because they will always keep coming back with a different event or angle to push their agenda. It’s the fight that never ends.

Another example of the people standing up and winning against the federal government overreach, is the April standoff 2014 at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, the people stood up and said hell no! This isn’t right and we are not going to let it happen!

In both cases the use of the internet had a lot to do with us defeating the federal gun grab and the eventual outcome of the feds leaving the Bundy ranch and Bundy still grazing his cattle on the disputed land.

The above examples of federal government overreach and defeat proves that we can win (sometimes), if we get organized and stand-up and say no! No more!

Below are six more clear examples of the federal governments overreaching power-grab, with success in most cases (their success not ours), over states 10th Amendment rights and the constitutional rights of Americans.

The surest way to defeat the following federal overreach, is via states rights and the exercise of the tenth amendment. But the states have to stand up first and say no… with the support of the citizens of each state.

To gain power the states need to stand up together and say no, not in our states, get out of our lives, and take your federal grant money and handouts that you use to try to control state policy with you.

1. Control of Health-Care Suicide Pact: The Radi... Andrew P. Napolitano Best Price: $1.50 Buy New $2.50 (as of 07:25 EDT - Details)

Everyone has heard about the “affordable” care act, better known as Obama care. Obama care is clearly, unconstitutional (no matter what some judges in the supreme court say), and is nothing more than a power grab by the federal government to control your health-care choices and to make you pay for it.

The Constitution is a document that is intended to preserve liberty by limiting the powers of the federal government. It reserves most governmental powers to the state. And it protects the freedom of individuals. Obamacare strips powers reserved for the states and attacks the freedom of individuals. Joseph Farah

2. Control of Education

Common core, is another clear example of the federal governments overreaching attempt to control every part of our lives from our birth to the day we die. The federal government has no right to interfere or delegate state educational policy. Yet, here we are with the federal bureaucracy, trying to push its way into our lives…

Common Core is another step toward the centralization and complete takeover of education under the federal government. Education has always been controlled at the state level. Curricula, educational standards, and teacher accountability have all been regulated at the state level, and each state had its own institutions and structures to govern those regulations.

Common Core will eliminate all of that. The program is a set of academic regulations set by the federal government. Technically, states adopt the standards voluntarily, but financial incentives and changes to related policies – like SAT, ACT and GED tests – make it difficult for states to continue following their own programs.

3. Control of All Police Including Local Departments

This is one of the most recent (and very dangerous) federal power grab attempts, fortunately this isn’t a done deal yet, but if the federal government has its way they will soon have control over all law enforcement agencies in America. This Progressivism: A Prime... James Ostrowski Best Price: $14.14 Buy New $14.14 (as of 02:50 EDT - Details) included your local police and sheriff departments. If you look at history, this is always one of the first steps taken before dictatorial rule is implemented and enforced.

Call it Common Core for police. But the White House, in cahoots with the Department of Justice, has set in motion a plan that will expand federal control of community police forces. President Obama said he hoped to soon implement the plan among the nation’s 18,000 or so law enforcement jurisdictions. WND

4. Control of The Internet

They want control of the internet, so that they can shut-down free speech and our ability to use the internet to spread the truth, alternative views, information and our ability to organize and thus effectively, fight against their various power grabs and attacks on the Constitution and American people…

The internet isn’t broken, and doesn’t need the federal government via the FCC and Net Neutrality to come in and “fix-it”, no what we need is for Obama, the federal government and the FCC to butt out.

But they want control, they want the control of free speech, so that they can better control and manipulate the American peoples thoughts on other key issues and policies that will keep the cycle of power and federal government overreach, going but with less opposition from an informed people .

They already control the main stream media via mass media brainwashing, which they use to promote their agenda and to keep the America people infighting and stupefied about important issues, policies and those same government power grabs and overreaches that we have talked about here.

5. Economic Control

The federal government controls every facet of the U.S. economy via regulations, taxes and threats. There are thousands of laws and regulations, far to many to get into here, but if you do a little research on your own, it is easy to see that “They Against the State: An ... Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr. Best Price: $5.95 Buy New $9.95 (as of 03:05 EDT - Details) Own It All (Including You)!: By Means of Toxic Currency“.

But while the federal government regulates the U.S. economy the real controllers are the ultra-wealthy, the big banks and the large corporations. These are the real power holders, they just use their control over the federal government (and the currency supply) to enforce that power over the American people.

6. The Surveillance State

If you missed it the fourth Amendment is dead. The weapon used to cause this fatality was the patriot act. The patriot act… oh what a catchy name… it just rolls off the tongue doesn’t it…  the patriot act… the patriot act… the patriot act…

They chose to call it that, instead of what it really is the “death of the Fourth and Sixth Amendment act”, because mentally, people supporting it would see themselves as being patriotic without caring about the details…

They like using catchy names to gain public support, you know names like “the affordable care act”, “net neutrality”, “common core” etc to make it all sound like a good idea, and it usually does to the ignorant uniformed masses, when in reality it’s all about control and power…

We now live in Orwellian federal surveillance state, where the federal government can invade anyone’s privacy (and does), without just cause or a legal warrant.  They mass collect (and can read and listen at will) every text, email, phone conversation, internet history, Facebook post, tweet, credit card purchases, medical history… everything.

They know everything about you and me, they know everything about everyone, or can find out with a few clicks on a keyboard – it would not surprise me to find out that they know and keep track of our bowl movements, including time of day and weight for each…
