Exercise your Constitutional right this election
To the Editor:
The 10th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States Emeaning the federal governmentF is written that “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.” That means that the power of the United States government is in the states, not the federal government EWashington, D.C.F. Let’s remember we are the government, not the representatives we send to Harrisburg and Washington. They are supposed to be servants of the people EusF.
We have allowed this whole thing to get flipped. Governing from the top down is dictatorship. The Constitution was written to govern from the bottom up. “We the People” are in charge mainly because we pay all the bills — state and federal.
It is our fault that this has happened. Since we are in charge, we have not stayed involved and held our representatives to task. There are quite a few citizens who have tried to be educated on this and try to inform the rest of us. They get labeled as “radicals” and a few other words because we don’t want to hear that we are at fault. Oops!
Since this is the most important election of our lifetime, it’s time to get up and get active. You have a right from God through the Constitution to make your country what it was designed to be. We don’t have to agree on everything, so therefore everyone has a right to their opinion and we have a right to listen and agree or disagree. Go out there and find out what you can do to see that your candidate gets elected. Stop hiding behind your political party and letting them make all the decision for you. Regina (Jean) Bolger
