He Has Refused His Assent to Laws

From the Declaration of Independence, ...the history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

Replace "King of Great Britain" with the name of one of our modern Presidents (Obama being the last of a series of tyrants) and their accomplices in Congress.

Although the claim in the Declaration deals with some of the colonies being required to submit their laws to the King for his approval. This is not what the colonies desired. They did not need the consent of the King.

In America, we know that whatever rights and resulting laws not derived from our Constitution belong to the states.

For decades now we have seen states rights denied and the federal government usurping its defined role.

The 10th Amendment states: "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."

From the Constitutional Party platform (note I am not a current member of this party):
The Constitution delegated few, enumerated powers to the Federal Government, reserving all remaining powers to the States and the people. Thus, powers of the Federal were the exception.

Our federal republic was created by joint action of the several states. It has been gradually perverted into a socialist machine for federal control in the domestic affairs of the states.

The federal government has no authority to mandate policies relating to state education, natural resources, transportation, private business, housing, and health care, ad infinitum.

We call upon the states to reclaim their legitimate role in federal affairs and legislation (See Amendment 10 United States Constitution) and thus cause the federal government to divest itself of operations not authorized by the Constitution and extract the federal government from such enterprises, whether or not they compete with private enterprise.
I agree.
