From an article by Walter Williams at

Oklahomans are trying to recover some of their lost state sovereignty by
House Joint Resolution 1089, introduced by State Rep. Charles Key...

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 10th 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 powers...

Both parties and all branches of the federal government have made a mockery
of the checks and balances, separation of powers and the republican form of
government envisioned by the founders. One of the more disgusting sights for me
to is to watch a president, congressman or federal judge take an oath to uphold
and defend the United States Constitution, when in reality they either hold
constitutional principles in contempt or they are ignorant of those

State efforts, such as Oklahoma's, create a glimmer of hope that one day
Americans and their elected representatives will realize that the federal
government is the creation of the states. A bit of rebellion by officials in
other states will speed that process along.

Bawb sez of course everyone on the Federal tit will oppose this and if it flies FedGov will probably do a repeat of 1861 but, as Mr. Williams says, it does create a glimmer of hope. Gotta love Walter Williams. And Merle Haggard. Go, Okies, go!

I couldn't imagine the mewling pussies in the Iowa legislature doing anything resembling this. They usually just have their hands out, begging for handouts, when communicating with the feds.
