Letter to the Editor: Champion Liberty in Alabama


Dear Editor,

Our federal government has become too big, bloated, and power hungry. With the centralized power structure in D.C. running roughshod over constitutional government, we must take a stand and restore our founders’ vision of checks and balances and federalism. It is time for we the people to fight federal tyranny through our respected legislatures. The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution gives states the legal power of nullification. States can legally nullify unconstitutional federal acts and can choose not to provide material support to the federal government and halt the implementation of said act within the state’s jurisdiction.

The time has come for Alabamians to lead the effort to rein in the size, power, scope, and jurisdiction of the federal government. Through the legislative process in Alabama, we can put a check on federal tyranny. When congress or the president attempts to undermine our God-given liberties we can legally stop them in the name of state sovereignty. Alabama can put in place legislation that will combat any unconstitutional effort by the feds to erode our rights. Our God-given rights of religious liberty, our right to keep and bear arms, our privacy rights, and our rights to due process are all being subverted. If we as a state have the will to take a stand such as our founders did, we can restore our constitutional liberties.

My fellow Alabamians, we can nullify unconstitutional acts forced upon us by a tyrannical and unlawful central government. We can take a stand for Alabama values. Our founders bestowed upon us the ingenious tool of the Tenth Amendment. In the coming months I will be in contact with members of the state legislature in an attempt to garner support for nullification legislation. Contact your elected legislator and ask them to support the cause. Together we can champion the Bill of Rights in Alabama. Our state motto is “We Dare Defend Our Rights” and together, we will do just that. Restoring our Republic begins one statehouse at a time. Thank you and God bless!

In Liberty,

Dylan Smith
