    Don't mess with my Texas pride

    Alaska really does that? why? I seriously thought Texas was the only State allowed to do that.

    California actually did a decade and a half ago

    Source [Official California Legislative Information | Senate Joint Resolution No. 44 Relative to the 10th Amendment]

    Resolved by the Senate and Assembly of the State of
    California, jointly, That the State of California 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 United States
    Constitution and that this measure shall serve as notice and
    demand to the federal government to cease and desist, effective
    immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of its
    constitutionally delegated powers; and be it further
    Resolved, That the Secretary of the Senate transmit copies of
    this resolution to the President and Vice President of the
    United States, the Speaker of the United States House of
    Representatives, the President pro Tempore of the United States
    Senate, each Senator and Representative from California in the
    Congress of the United States and to the Speaker of the House
    and the President of the Senate of each state legislature in the
    United States of America.
    The movement has seen a general resurgence of late, for which I am glad. The state to be watching here is Montana, who is not only passing such legislation but is planning an actual confrontation with the feds

    Montana poised to buck federal gun control

    The real target, though, is the U.S. Supreme Court. And Marbut and others believe they can hit that mark with a simple Montana-made youth-model single-shot bolt-action .22 rifle.

    In particular, they plan to find a “squeaky clean” Montanan who wants to send a note to the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives threatening to build and sell about 20 such rifles without federal dealership licensing. If the ATF tells them it’s illegal, they will then file a lawsuit in federal court n with any luck triggering a legal battle that lands in the nation’s highest court.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    This should be adopted and reaffirmed by the other 49 as well.

    Yeah. And it doesn't matter to Alaska whether they are "allowed" to do it or not...they're just going to do what they want and **** everyone else. On Alaska Day they fly the Alaskan flag above the American Flag at the capital building in Juneau.

    I disagree. I think California would easily adopt such a resolution. The past few years California has seeked more state control over Federal control due to the fact that the California government is more liberal then the Federal government is as a whole. Though the state as a whole is overtly moderate or slight right when compared to more local governments within California, as was seen by the Prop 8 voting last year.

    California just doubled it's car property tax and registration fees, and increased it's state sales tax by 25%.

    And in the face of the looming bankruptcy of the state, the Guvernator and the Democrats are pushing a special election this May to get the sucker voters to pass ballot initiatives to allow all the spending the Republicans managed to trim in their compromise, and further increase the tax burden on the state.

    That's what happens when people vote Democrat.

    You're wrong.

    Sacramento would NEVER pass such a resolution, so the governor would never see it to sign it.

    What was seen in the Prop 8 vote last year was that roughly 20% of the people who voted for the black guy in the big white house are bigots still.
