Showdown, Texas style!

What I wouldn't give to see a full scale 10th amendment showdown.

This has been brewing for some time as the federal government takes the commerce clause and expands and expands it. Nowadays I don’t think many people even consider whether the federal government should be doing it. They just assume, if someone should be doing it, then the feds should be the ones doing it.

From the Made in Montana type gun laws to

Texas’s resolutions of sovereignty to  Governor Perry’s declaration of a states' rights showdown with White House over healthcare we may see such a thing in the next few years.

I mean how can you argue with this?

RESOLVED, 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 powers; and, be it further


RESOLVED, That all compulsory federal legislation not

necessary to ensure rights guaranteed the people under the

Constitution of the United States that directs states to comply

under threat of civil or criminal penalties or sanctions or that

requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding be

prohibited or repealed
