(NaturalNews) America's Founding Fathers understood that the encroachment of federal power over the states was a threat to free society, so they carefully framed the U.S. Constitution as a protection for the People. And the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution specifically states that powers not specifically granted to the federal government are wholly reserved for the states and the People. So the eight states-and-counting that are working to declare void the federal health care bill are only doing their proper duty, says the Tenth Amendment Center (TAC), a national think tank working to preserve and protect the principles of limited government and the liberty it brings.

"Thomas Jefferson advised, 'Whenever the general government assumes undelegated powers ... a nullification of the act is the rightful remedy,'" stated TAC concerning many states' efforts to challenge the health care bill. "When states pass laws to reject and nullify unconstitutional federal 'laws,' regulations and mandates -- it's not rebellion ... it's duty."

A NaturalNews report from November explains that seven states have already passed amendments to the federal health care bill, and three others have pending legislation. Seventeen states have introduced bills or amendments to challenge portions of the bill as well (https://www.naturalnews.com/030297_tenth_amen...).

But recently, Texas, Montana, Wyoming, Oregon, and Maine introduced nullification bills to actually declare the health care bill unconstitutional, and thus render it unenforceable. In fact, each of these bills mandates fines or jail time for anyone who tries to enforce any portions of the health care bill, citing the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as the authority for taking such measures.

Far from drastic, such efforts are actually a patriotic duty by the states to defend the people from federal tyranny. And the health care bill is not the only issue by which states have used the Tenth Amendment to protect freedom and liberty. More than 24 states helped stop the 2005 Real ID Act, and 15 states have passed resolutions to combat unconstitutional federal marijuana laws.

TAC is holding a "Nullify Now!" tour that begins in Phoenix, Ariz., on January 29, 2011. Later stops will include Cincinnati, Ohio, Manchester, N.H., St. Paul, Minn., Austin, Tex., and Los Angeles, Calif. To find out more, visit:
