Knock Me Over With a Feather

"On Tuesday, 05-26-09, Massachusetts State Representative Jeffrey Davis Perry (R-Sandwich) filed a Resolution before the House of Representatives to protect the Founding Fathers’ intent and the Constitutional protections of the 10th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which states:

“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.” [link]

Of course this being Massachusetts and all I really doubt that this will go very far. Being as how they seem to love as much government intervention into their lives as they can get. But still, I cannot fault anyone for wanting the federal government to stick solely to the role that it was intended.
