The Rumblings of Civil War

When States feel compelled to create amendments to protect it's citizens from the Federal Government, you know there must be a problem. (NDAA 2012 p 1021-1022)I applaud this state and a handful of others, who have taken their oath to the Constitution seriously. Unless the bloated government wakes up- this may lead to a war on the Feds. I fear that the Federal Government has forgotten why they exist and who they exist for. Let this excerpt from the Declaration of Independence provide a reminder to us all about our duties. "That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."
