South Carolina Has to Take Stimulus Money

The South Carolina Supreme Court has issued a ruling requiring Governor Mark Sanford (R) to take the federal stimulus money he had been fighting to refuse.

Sanford had been fighting for the right to refuse stimulus money from the Obamarx administration. Well, evidently, the court decided it was in the best interest of the people to force their will upon the governor. This makes South Carolina indebted to the Federal government against their will. How special is that!

Every time someone has exercised their choice to refuse to partake of any of these loony programs set up by Dear Leader, the threat of force is the administration's first response. Do it or else. How can we say we a truly free nation when tyranny is looming on the horizon and gets closer every day?

Oh, Governor Sanford? I know you said you would drop your federal case and not appeal the decision, but please grow a spine and reconsider. The only way to stop the federal government from dictating what state governments do is to stand up and fight. If you can't do that, please exercise your state's rights under the Tenth Amendment. Don't let those of us who believe in freedom down.

Your Supreme Court needs to go. They obviously overlooked the most basic laws in the United States--which is as you write, the Tenth Amendment. There is a reason we keep seeing these Amendments beat down. Just for once I would love to see government beat down the 16th Amendment.

Not my Supreme Court. I'm in Pennsylvania. You know, the state being led by that thug Ed Rendell (can't wait until he's gone).

From my understanding,and I don't know how true this is, the 16th Amendment was never fully ratified. I don't know if someone on your blog can do some digging, but wouldn't that be great if it was true?
