Thomas Jefferson on State’s Rights

Thomas Jefferson on State’s Rights

The idea that each state is given the right to make its own choices about all issues of economics, social intercourse, law, and other matters of life and style (not delegated to the Federal Government by our Constitution) is pure genius!

This cultural design embodies God’s evolutionary plan for all creatures of the universe. There are many designs or adaptations that will evolve. Only a few are a good and useful advantage: These adaptations will tend to survive and multiply. A great many others will fail and eventually die out.

So it is with natural selection, the selection of individual’s actions, as well as the behavioral adaptations among our states and our nation (i.e., subcultural and cultural selection forces).

When the Federal Government dictates uniformity among our states, and that uniform adaptation fails. It is not “an appendage” that fails: It is the entire American organism!

Do You Get It!?

If you do, pleases pass this on to others.

“I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground that ‘all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states or to the people.’ To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specially drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, not longer susceptible of any definition.” –Thomas Jefferson, Opinion on the Constitutionality of a National Bank, 1791
