Video: Don’t mess with Texas

Last week Texas Governor Rick Perry stood strong with several other Texas state legislators in support of a resolution re-asserting Texas sovereignty under the 10th Amendment of the United States constitution. The 10th Amendment, in short, states that all powers not explicitly granted to the Federal government should be reserved for the individual states.

Governor Rick Perry addressing this issue:

Relating to this story is the news that as many as 20 other states are considering or have already passed similar resolutions:

NEW YORK – As the Obama administration attempts to push through Congress a nearly $1 trillion deficit spending plan that is weighted heavily toward advancing typically Democratic-supported social welfare programs, a rebellion against the growing dominance of federal control is beginning to spread at the state level.

So far, eight states have introduced resolutions declaring state sovereignty under the Ninth and Tenth Amendment to the Constitution, including Arizona, Hawaii, Montana, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, Oklahoma and Washington.

Analysts expect that in addition, another 20 states may see similar measures introduced this year, including Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Nevada, Maine and Pennsylvania.

I don’t blame them. I only wish Virginia would tak eup the cause as well. States will be the last line of defense against many of the socialist government programs impugned on us by President Obama and the Democrat-controlled congress.

    I have proudly lived in the Great State of Texas. No State income tax and no State tax on groceries classified as real food (milk- no tax, candy bar-tax)

    I now live in Missouri now that is part of resolutions declaring state sovereignty under the Ninth and Tenth Amendment.

    In less than 3 months under Obama the PEOPLE are protesting. States are defying. Much bigger than what occurred to Bush.

    Which Ralley is Obama attending ??? When will Obama seriously address the strings attached to money given to States. The outragest and obcene spending. Attempts to,in secret, push his veiws upon the States.
