Proft: Make the 10th Amendment Great Again

As President-elect Trump sorts through his priorities for his first 100 days he should deliberately set out to make the 10th Amendment great again.

Good governance requires a framework rooted in first principles.

To both counter allegations that he has authoritarian impulses and to unleash the populace’s creative energies lying fallow, Trump should re-establish American federalism and devolve power away from the federal government.

How about:

Ending the federal government’s perverse inducements to the states to expand Medicaid under Obamacare; and

Creating block grants from the Department of Education to fund state scholarships that give poor kids a chance to go to better schools?

I suspect the nation’s 33 Republican governors and perhaps even some of the Democrats would welcome greater sovereignty over their affairs.

If Trump governs as neo-Federalist he will, indeed, be making America great again.

Southern Poverty Law Center: Trump Is Already Damaging Our Children

For your entertainment, from the story:  Ninety percent of educators report that school climate has been negatively affected, and most of them believe it will have a long-lasting impact. A full 80 percent describe heightened anxiety and concern on the part of students worried about the impact of the election on themselves and their families.  Also on the upswing: verbal harassment, the use of slurs and derogatory language, and disturbing incidents involving swastikas, Nazi salutes and Confederate flags.

Media Targets Fixer Upper Stars for Possibly Holding to Traditional Marriage

Once again, the far left is targeting stars for their association with biblical values (Daily Signal).  Newsbusters points out they are being attacked for likely holding the “classic Christian, conservative stance; namely, that God created marriage as a union of one man and woman, that any deviation is sinful, and that God created people with the ability to turn from sin” (Newsbusters).  The media have turned it into yet another “anti-gay” witch hunt.  From Todd Starnes:  And for the record, where were their hysterical screeds when President Obama’s pastor was asking God to damn America? Anybody want to talk about those roosting chickens? (Todd Starnes).

Medved: Impossible to Ignore Conservative Trend

In order to minimize the scope of the conservative victory in the recent elections, liberal commentators treat Donald Trump’s achievement as an isolated fluke.

But this misleading account ignores Republican triumphs at every other level: for the Senate, where the GOP won 21 races and the Democrats won 12, for governorships, where Republicans now control 34 states to the Democrats 15, and to the House, where Republicans won at least 241 seats to the Democrats 194. These are crushing margins—and the GOP has now won the House of Representatives 4 times in a row, and 10 times of the last 12.

The conservative trend over the last 25 years is so obvious that only blindly biased observers could continue to ignore it.
