States Declaring Sovereignty

States’ Rights and Sovereignity: Bills Passed and Proposed

In response to increasing federal encroachment, a growing number
of states have passed and proposed resolutions to assert the Tenth
Amendment and the Bill of Rights of the Constitution.

The Tenth Amendment is part of the Bill of Rights and was ratified on
December 15, 1791. It states the Constitution’s principle of Federalism
by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states are reserved to the states and to the people.
It is based on an earlier provision of the Articles of Confederation:
“Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and
every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation
expressly delegated to the United States, in Congress assembled.”

Washington, New Hampshire, Arizona, Montana, Michigan, Missouri,
Oklahoma, California, and Georgia have all introduced bills and resolutions declaring sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment. Colorado, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Alaska, Kansas, Alabama,Nevada, Maine, and Illinois are considering such measures.

    I’d be curious to know (don’t remember), which of these states went red v. blue this election and which states reps just voted FOR the Stimulicious Bill?

    Looks like a real bad case of buyers remorse-

    Here’s the blue states:

    Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico,
    Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, Idaho, Montana, New Jersey, Illinois,
    Ohio, Virginia, Maryland, New York, New Hampshire, Maine, Delaware,
    Connecticut, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Hawaii, Florida.

    I only know the 3 Republican Senators who crossed over, Snow,
    Collins and Spector. Coincidentally all 3 are members of the Council
    on Foreign Relations.
