Oklahoma Legislature Proclaiming State Sovereignty

Posted on May 6, 2009. Filed under: Political Issues |

In an overwhelming 73-22 vote, the Oklahoma House passed House Concurrent Resolution 1028 claiming State sovereignty with the 10th Amendment of the US Constitution. This is a slap in the face of Demoncrat Governor Brad Henry, who, just about 10 days ago, vetoed House Joint Resolution 1003 which would have done the same thing. The use of the Concurrent Resolution will avoid the Governor’s veto. HCR 1028 will be taken up by the Senate next, which passed HJR 1003 by a wide margin previously. Therefore, it is likely the Senate will pass HCR 1028.

The Tenth Amendment of the US Constitution reads:

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.

Governor Rick Perry, Rep., backed the Texas Legislature’s effort at passing a similar resolution a few weeks ago:

And Gov. Perry even used the “S” word in some speeches at the Tax Day Tea Parties (S= Secession):

What does all this mean? It is clear that here in the great Southwestern states of Texas-Oklahoma, the people and the legislatures are fed up with a national government gone amok and trampling on the Bill of Rights. The 10th Amendment has been virtually ignored for the past 100 years and needs to be re-vitalized. The States need to send a shot across the bow of the National Behemoth and President I-was-not-born-in-America-Obamasky. We need some state Governors with some major backbone to stand up and tell the President “Don’t Tread on Me!”

Good job you Okies, my home state! Keep it up!
