    Gov. Perry Backs Resolution Affirming Texas’ Sovereignty Under 10th Amendment

    Well I'll be damned, someone gave Rick Perry a spine... too bad his overall Gov. term has been craptstic, but for this right now... I like it.


    AUSTIN – Gov. Rick Perry today joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

    “I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”

    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.

    'Bout damn time states started this, hopefully this is the beginning of the shrinkage of big government, but the fight is going to be long and difficult, especially with the way the idiot and his buddies are digging in in Washington.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Now let's get the legislature to get behind it and pass it.

    Then persuade other states to do the same.

    It's past time to tell Washington, D.C. to back down and back off.

    California is too far gone to do the same. If anything they are using the Obama model.

    I will tough it out as the weather here is awesome and I love the sunsets over the pacific and Mexican Food.

    Too little, too late. Kay Bailey Hutchinson is going to primary his lame ass out, and he will not be reelected.
