Abolishing the 10th Amendment?

Certain Lawyers and Judges Played an Essential Role in the Destruction of Our Lawful Government!

“It is appropriate that the Centennial observance of the Conference coincides with the bicentennial of the Bill of Rights. The concluding article of the Bill of Rights, the Tenth Amendment, epitomizes the federal system the Constitution created. It reserves to the states “the powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states …” Because of this limitation, implicit in the original Constitution, nearly all private law – contracts, negotiable instruments, business organizations, marriage and divorce, for example – and most areas of criminal law, are left for definition and regulation by the legislatures and courts of the several states. For 200 years this autonomy of the States has been enshrined in the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. For the nation’s first 100 years, this system of legal diversity worked fairly well, although in one sense the Civil War grew out of the decidedly non-uniform state law concerning slavery. But after that war, as the nation came together again, moved westward, expanded its borders, began to industrialize, and acquired the means of transcontinental travel, the need for a common, predictable, nation-wide legal system became crucial. There were at least two methods for unifying the legal systems of the states. State law could be preempted by the Federal Government through repeal of the Tenth Amendment, or by expansive interpretation of the commerce clause and other expressed powers delegated to Congress. Alternatively, the states could create a forum and a vehicle by which they could voluntarily agree to develop, and then separately adopt, uniform legislation on important subjects of common concern. That was the path chosen in 1891 when the Conference was conceived. It is probably not coincidence that the origin of the Conference occurred during the Centennial celebration for the Bill of Rights and the Tenth Amendment.”

Since 1892, the Commissioners have implemented all three alternatives stated above!

They and others have intentionally, in essence, abolished the 10th Amendment and greatly expanded the interpretation of the commerce clause and other expressed powers delegated to Congress – all done unconstitutionally according to the original intent of the Constitution.

From the chapter titled: “THE BEGINNING” (on page 11), “The report of the first conference says with pardonable immodesty; It is probably not too much to say that this is the most important  juristic work undertaken in the United States since the adoption of the Federal Constitution.”
