State Sovereignty Will Save the U.S. Constitution

Posted by Marty Jensen

Following is the text of an email sent to my Utah state representative, Brent Wallis, and my Utah state senator, Jon Greiner.

Representative Wallis and Senator Greiner,

I urge your wholehearted support for S.B. 11 Utah State-made Firearms Protection Act and/or other similar bills which re-state and reclaim the state sovereignty we have given up to the federal government.

The federal government is increasingly leading us into socialism and fascism. All three branches of government have colluded to concentrate power in the federal government at the expense of states' rights and the will of the people. The federal government has turned the Constitution on its head: rather than exercising only the limited powers granted it, the federal government now assumes unlimited power. Burdensome federal laws and regulations have robbed us of a good deal of our liberty. Federal officials routinely disregard or violate their oaths of office to "preserve, protect, and defend" the Constitution of the United States.

I assume you are well aware of the unconstitutional and tyrannical police state America is becoming. Our country is in a very precarious situation. Corruption in high places abounds. Many people, including those in high places, want to increase the power of the federal government. This can only mean a loss of liberty for "we the people." There are also those who would destroy the sovereignty of the United States and meld us into a world government. Should that happen, it will be the end of liberty not only for America but for other democratic nations as well.

I submit that the only way remaining to reclaim our country and return to the God-inspired republic our Founding Fathers established, is through a firm exercise of states' rights. Many states throughout the nation are doing precisely this. Of all states, given the history of persecution and repression suffered by Utah's pioneer founders, surely Utah should understand the vital role that Constitutional government plays in the preservation of our liberties.

Again, I urge you to take a firm stand against federal usurpation of the state powers affirmed in the 9th and 10th amendments to the United States' Constitution. Let Utah lead out in nullifying unconstitutional federal laws, edicts, and regulations. Utah can and must increasingly reassert its state sovereignty and push back against the federal government's tyranny. This is a struggle not only for the welfare of the people of Utah, but for liberty throughout the entire nation and indeed, the entire world.

I look forward to your replies.

Respectfully submitted, along with my gratitude and appreciation for your service to our state,

Marty W. Jensen

P.S. Aside from supporting a state-made firearms act, Utah should enter into reciprocal agreements with other like-minded states, allowing commerce to flow between states in defiance of the federal government's claim to regulate everything passing between state borders.
