With conditions at their worst and 81% of Americans feeling like the US is headed in the wrong direction it comes as no surprise that States are making rash decisions to protect their citizenship. Case in point, even though it was grossly under-reported the State of Oklahoma passed legislation declaring their Sovereignty. Not quite sure if this means they intend to secede from the Union but they are using some pretty inflammatory language in their paperwork.
They cite the 10th Amendment of the Constitution for grounds to invest the power in the ‘people’ as opposed to the federal government which doesn’t have Sovereignty over a State’s sovereign rights to self-determine their destiny. Interesting, we’ll keep you posted as the story develops. Worst-case scenario? I hope the Southern states don’t try to pull this stunt after Obama slides in to practically create the “two” America’s that preachers have come under fire for talking about. Look at their flag for christ sakes! Were they ever fully integrated into the Union by paying homage to the indigenous inhabitants of their state (the real sovereigns)?
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
AND THE SENATE OF THE 2ND SESSION OF THE 51ST OKLAHOMA LEGISLATURE:
THAT the State of Oklahoma hereby claims sovereignty under the
Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all
powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal
government by the Constitution of the United States.
THAT this serve as Notice and Demand to the federal government,
as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates
that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated
