Thread: States Rebellion Pending
#1 States Rebellion Pending03-25-2009, 12:52 PM
Walter Williams or Thomas Sowell should be the face of the conservative party. He wants the states to get tougher!
Our Colonial ancestors petitioned and pleaded with King George III to get his boot off their necks. He ignored their pleas, and in 1776, they rightfully declared unilateral independence and went to war. Today it's the same story except Congress is the one usurping the rights of the people and the states, making King George's actions look mild in comparison. Our constitutional ignorance -- perhaps contempt, coupled with the fact that we've become a nation of wimps, sissies and supplicants -- has made us easy prey for Washington's tyrannical forces. But that might be changing a bit. There are rumblings of a long overdue re-emergence of Americans' characteristic spirit of rebellion.
Eight state legislatures have introduced resolutions declaring state sovereignty under the Ninth and 10th amendments to the U.S. Constitution; they include Arizona, Hawaii, Montana, Michigan, Missouri, New Hampshire, Oklahoma and Washington. There's speculation that they will be joined by Alaska, Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Nevada, Maine and Pennsylvania.
You might ask, "Isn't the 10th Amendment that no-good states' rights amendment that Dixie governors, such as George Wallace and Orval Faubus, used to thwart school desegregation and black civil rights?" That's the kind of constitutional disrespect and ignorance that big-government proponents, whether they're liberals or conservatives, want you to have. The reason is that they want Washington to have total control over our lives. The Founders tried to limit that power with the 10th Amendment, which 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."

Those non-binding resolutions, you gotta love 'em.
Legislators debating and voting on something that cannot progress into law or be enforced in any way.
I'm picturing the Montana militia and state police holding the line at the border, refusing to let them SOB's from Idaho inside their new sovereign territory, when...
In the distance, they hear the roar of a single AC-130 approaching above... While a few of the militia think they have a fighting chance, most begin cursing their friends for dragging them into this lame brain operation...
3 minutes later... The montana uprising of 2009 comes to an abrupt end... And the Darwin Awards have material for the next 5 years...

Oddly, (or maybe not oddly) I've been hearing more talk about the 10th Amendment and even sterner things around the water cooler. These aren't the kind of people who I would expect to hear voice such thoughts. These are actual people - not Internet blowhards.

There are lots of people keeping just below the radar in fear of reprisals who expect this Administration to end in an civil uprising of some sort.Most are mulling plans to stock up on survival goods and thinking of being self sufficient in the wake of massive shortages and people in the streets and that is partially the reason for the panic in new weapon purchases.
They know that some people will resist these changes to their country so he plans to strip the military of any domestic role and instead recruit his civilian progressive police force to keep the conservatives under control.
Another part of the plan is to never give up any political power and to that end they are diddling the census and voter registrations in certain key states,their Congress and White House intend never to leave office again.
The Obama fifth column's are cranking up the progressive party line all across the net in an attempt to stifle any debate on what Obama is actually up to .It's becoming obvious that he is attempting to change America into something more European and Socialistic .
He will take Americas military apart and cut the defence budget to the bone to finance his new vision for America.Something that Soros would like in order to open up the markets to his style of currency raiding !He hates American conservatives for thwarting his ambitions to leave his great legacy as a rise from rags to great riches.
