Awakening of the States

What does Ohio have in common with Louisiana, Colorado, Wisconsin, Illinois, West Virginia, North Carolina, North Dakota, Nevada, Oregon, Alabama, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Idaho, New Mexico, South Dakota, Virginia, Kentucky, Alaska, Indiana, Tennessee, Arkansas, Minnesota, South Carolina, Georgia, Kansas, Texas, New Hampshire, Missouri, Iowa, Montana, Michigan, Arizona, Washington, and Oklahoma?

All have introduced Sovereignty Resolutions in their legislatures.

Are you surprised? That's a daunting list. Had I named just a few other states you might have guessed what they have in common. Instead I listed them all in hopes that it will have the same impact on you that it did on me when I first saw it. My jaw dropped.

Sure, some of these states have been in the news because of their sovereignty resolutions, and you have probably read or heard something about it. But this might be the first time you have seen the complete list of states. It's the first I have known there were more than just a few. This is not a small movement. This is a cry out against the excessive power grab emanating from Washington D.C., especially from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.

I probably don't need to tell you, though, that it's one thing to get these resolutions introduced into legislature, but quite another to get them passed and then signed by the governor. This is going to be an uphill battle. Contact your state representatives and senators and urge them to support your state's sovereignty resolution.

In Ohio you can read all the details and sign a petition here: http://sovereign.ohiofreedom.com/wordpress/. For information about the effort in all the states, visit the Tenth Amendment Center here: http://www.tenthamendmentcenter.com/.

Amendment X: 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.

Could it be any simpler?

  1. Roger,

    we are dealing with simpletons. The intrusion of the federal government over "forcing" states to take the Stimulus funds is a perfect example of why we should all support this. These one-time lottery winning like funds being forced on the states will be the cause of much anguish and future deficits over programs mandated on the states.

    If there ever was an unfunded federal mandate on the states - the stimulus funds are a perfect example.
