Truth Before Dishonor

I would rather be right than popular

The Two Tenths

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/08/07


The Tenth Commandment:
You shall not covet your neighbor’s house. You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife, or his male or female servant, his ox or donkey, or anything that belongs to your neighbor.

The Tenth Amendment:
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

If you do not covet anything that belongs to your neighbor, you will not support any “soak the rich” or “spread the wealth” policies. On the other hand, if you do support any “soak the rich” or “spread the wealth” policies, you stand in direct violation of Providence’s Tenth Commandment.

If you stand on the Tenth Amendment, you will not support the massive over-regulatory regime currently in place, nor will you support any greater regulation and government control. On the other hand, if you support the massive over-regulatory regime currently in place or if you desire a boatload of new regulations, you stand in direct confrontation with the Tenth Amendment.
