… we possess, in the heritage of the U.S. Constitution, a powerful instrument to take up the cudgels of the grand old cause of denationalization and the devolution of the federal government into the states and localities. Libertarians have always, and correctly, been strong on the great libertarian Ninth Amendment to the Constitution. But it is time to realize that we must also take up the old paleoconservative cause of the Tenth Amendment, the decentralization aspect of the Bill of Rights.
