The 10th Amendment 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."
The 4th Amendment states: "The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized."
The Constitution Party will uphold the right of states and localities to restrict access to drugs and to enforce such restrictions. We support legislation to stop the flow of illegal drugs into these United States from foreign sources. As a matter of self-defense, retaliatory policies including embargoes, sanctions, and tariffs, should be considered.
At the same time, we will take care to prevent violations of the Constitutional and civil rights of American citizens. Searches without probable cause and seizures without due process must be prohibited, and the presumption of innocence must be preserved.
Ignores 1st amendment; 8th amendment; 9th amendment; 14th amendment.
1st amendment- freedom of religion
8th amendment- freedom from excessive punishments
9th amendment- freedom of un-enumerated rights retained by the people
14th amendment- equal protection under the law- scientific consistency, not the nonsense of altogether banning cocaine while allowing the sale of concentrated caffeine powder without poison warning labels.
Uses 10th amendment as vehicle to continue the status quo via the States. with its nanny state interpretation and twisting of powers to rights from the people to the State governments, while offering the 4th amendment as a mere fig leaf.
Employs other word tricks in pursuit of the status quo agenda that seem more moderate than they really are, restrict rather than prohibit, yet with no real limit of the scope of this police power.
For instance don’t think about requiring scientific consistency equal protection under the law, rather maintain ‘beliefs’ lacking truth.
It even asserts the idea of the U.S. with its criminal mercantilism for Virginia Bright Leaf Tobacco cigarettes having “As a matter of self-defense, retaliatory policies including embargoes, sanctions, and tariffs, should be considered” a blatant scam as it’s the U.S’s favored Tobacco that kills some 6 million people worldwide annually, and an estimated by the UN WHO 100 million plus during the last century.
That’s some legacy.
