The Intrastate Commerce Act


I have just finished sending the following email to a number of our Colorado State Legislators.

Ladies and Gentlemen,

I am sure you are tired of me proposing legislation to you but if I did not think it was important I would not do so. 

The link below takes you to a proposed “Intrastate Commerce Act” that is being proposed by the Tenth Amendment Center.

In a nutshell it states that whatever is grown or manufactured in Colorado and is destined to stay in Colorado falls outside the control of the federal government. 

As you know, the federal government has been riding rough-shod over the states for over 150 years. For many years it has been at a jogger’s pace but now it is at the pace of a NASCAR race. It is past time for the states to stand up and say “enough is enough.” 

I have no illusions that the incoming Democrat senate and Governor will allow this to take place but it is time we as Conservative Americans stand up and tell Washington that they serve at our will, not the other way around. 

I urge you to carefully consider this legislation, submit it, and work tirelessly for its enactment.



Every time we turn around the federal government and the OWH is instituting another program or law that takes away our right to think and act as we feel is in our best interest. The term “nanny state” has been used for a number of years but now it is becoming more than just a catch phrase, it is quickly becoming reality.

Unfortunately, much of the nanny statist attitude is coming from the east and west coasts but it is still infecting us here in Middle America. A couple of postings ago I asked you to join me in taking back our country. It is past time that we reestablish our sovereignty under the Constitution.

As always, I welcome your comments and discussion.

  1. For decades the federal government has used the Interstate Commerce Clause of the U.S. Consitution (with the help of a willing, and usually wrong Supreme Court) to perpetrate all sorts of mischief upon we the people. I would posit that 50%-80% of federal government programs, laws, rules and spending are really in direct violation of its enumerated constitutional powers. This has really become a joke; a very bad joke. The federal government believes that it can do virutally anything under this clause, which really begs the question of why, then do we have the list of specific enumerated powers in Article 1, Section 8? Why bother with those if the vaunted clause is all-encompassing? Well, the answer is quite obvious; albeit terribly inconvenient to the power hungry mobsters in Congress. The Tenth Amendment is our trump card if enough state legislatures and governors are willing to play it and go to the mat for it. If not, we are merely wards of a federal leviathan that will ultimately consume us and be our nation’s demise.
