Our first Guest Blogger. Welcome Billy

I rec'd this from Billy Yank and post his words for your review.

"The Federal Legislator has suggested a National Sales Tax. As Congresswoman Bachmann has recently demanded of Tim Geithner what Constitutional power do you have for your actions.
For the taxation of all trade in America I would say they have no power. Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution starts out by giving the Federal Legislature the power to "lay and collect Taxes." However, the power of the government is almost instantly contracted in that very same section where the government is given the power only "To regulate Commerce with Foreign Nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian Tribes" (it was an open question as to whether "Indian Tribes" were Foreign Nations).
The Constitution also prevents its power, which was feared by every one of the Founding Fathers, from growing. They thought they were OK, but knew in their hearts the next generation, or the one after that would forget, in their untried hearts, about freedom. Thus they insisted on the Ninth and Tenth Amendments to the Bill Of Rights.
The enumeration in the constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
The Power 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.
Now it would seem only Common Sense that a thing made in a state, which never leaves that state would be the business of that state, to tax or not tax as that state saw fit. Our milk is produced by Wisconsinite farmers, some who's families founded this state. It is purchased by Wisconsinite mothers, 15% of whom have no work and are feeding their babies as best they can. Finally, it is being drunk by Wisconsinite kids, our next generation.
What is to be done? I say that for those products that we do not send to other states, but sell and consume for ourselves, we must pass a law of nullification. It would simply say to the Federal government that your tax upon our internal commerce is Unconstitutional and we refuse to pay it.
To tax the bread from our children's mouths smacks of the actions of Evil Prince John and his Sheriff of Nottingham, of the abuses of Edward Longshanks against Scotland in the time of William Wallace's "Brave Hart" rebellion. Let us have Our Bread, O Milk, Our Cheese, and OUR FREEDOM!
Billy Yank"
