    maybe this time it will be posted correctly? The TRUTH about the "supremacy clause" - our Constitution does not delegate to the national government authority to restrict our arms, ammunition, regulate firearms dealers, do background checks, etc. The national government may not lawfully circumvent this restriction by means of a treaty wherein the signatory governments agree to disarm their Citizens or Subjects. wordpress.com/?s=The TRUTH about the %22supremacy clause

    If you are one that believes the Supreme Court is the final arbiter of what is lawful and constitutional, then you have believed a lie and a myth that Jefferson warned about. The States still retain their rights to this day to defy the federal judiciary, which has become an oligarcy. We just need strong statesmen as governors and legislatures to make that stand! In writing to William Jarvis, Jefferson said, "You seem . . . to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy." The germ of dissolution of our federal government is in the constitution of the federal Judiciary; an irresponsible body (for impeachment is scarcely a scare-crow) working like gravity by night and by day, gaining a little today and a little tomorrow, and advancing its noiseless step like a thief, over the field of jurisdiction, until all shall be usurped."

    So long as there are bankers and CEOs driven to increase earnings, there will be plenty of opportunity for plaintiffs‘ securities class action lawyers to get richer. The little guys can‘t afford to bankroll these very expensive pieces of litigation which go on for years. Only the "usual suspects" can do it because they are already rich. Nice work if you can get it.

    You‘re finished, commie parasites. No more get-rich-quick lawsuits.
