Separation of Powers

The Constitution, itself, in Articles I through VI, enumerates the powers which may be exercised by the federal government. Article I, Section 8 which delineates the authority of the Congress. The Tenth Amendment says: "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." I support the Enumerated Powers Act.

I do not believe that Constitution is being followed in our government today. I call for a restoration of the balance of power that was originally intended in the Constitution. We must rescind all Executive Orders and Presidential Directives and deny "Fast Track" authority since it is a clear violation of the separation of powers.

We must end judicial activism. Article 3 section 2 clearly gives Congress the authority to override almost any decision made by the Supreme Court.

We must restore to the States and to the people their rightful control over legislative, judicial, executive, and regulatory functions which are not constitutionally delegated to the federal government. Government agencies and institutions having no basis in the Constitution must be promptly terminated or transferred to the respective states.

We must repeal all Emergency Powers thus ensuring power is returned to the Congress, the states and the people in accordance with the original intentions of the U.S. Constitution. I stand opposed to any regionalization of governments, at any level, which results in removal of decision-making powers from the people or those directly elected by the people.
