    excerpt from New Hampshire bill:
    "That any Act by the Congress of the United States, Executive Order of the President of the United States of America or Judicial Order by the Judicatories of the United States of America which assumes a power not delegated to the government of United States of America by the Constitution for the United States of America and which serves to diminish the liberty of the any of the several States or their citizens shall constitute a nullification of the Constitution for the United States of America by the government of the United States of America."

    NH Bill:
    HCR 0006

    Missouri and others have already done this.

    Most of them are slightly benign as to their intent.
    However, Missouri mentioned "gun rights" by name.

    States are getting scared of the Government's power still growing, as it did during the Bush era, and as it did during the Clinton Era.
    I see it as just a reaffirmation of their powers. Sorta telling Obama to recognize where his jurisdiction ends.

    I think the boat may have sailed long ago but I certainly hope they win back something.

    State Sovereignty Movement Quietly Growing Tenth Amendment Center

    Contrary to the fantasies of some extremists, these sovereignty bills are not the first step towards secession or splitting up the union, nor are they an effort to block collection of the income tax, appealing though that might be. For the most part, they are not so much political statements of independence as they are expressions of fiscal authority directed specifically at the growing cost of unfunded mandates being placed upon the states by the federal government. Despite the movement picking up steam as he came to office, the target of these bills is not President Obama, but rather the Democrat-dominated Congress whose plans for massive bailouts and expanded social programs are likely to come at an enormous cost to the states.
    I heard about this "movement" on a local political radio show the other day. I am glad I checked this forum before posting a similar thread. It seems there isn't much discussion on this forum about this, but I think this could be a big deal if things like this were to go through. I quoted a pertinent part of this article, so people wouldn't jump to the conclusion that its an attempt to "break away" from the US.

    I am quite suprised that more libertarians on this site, aren't even discussing this, or more liberals aren't coming in to mock it.

    Re: states file sovereignty resolutions

    my question is this-
    whether the bills ever see passage, or any action or not... what is this saying about the current condition of this country, when 20+ states are filing bills to be sovereign from federal control?

    it's really kinda scary... we've had problems before, but 20 or more states filing sovereignty resolutions is unprecedented, isn't it?

    i noticed in the TN bil (i just posted it under a new thread), it even mentions the bush administration in conjunction with obama's plans for the nation- "WHEREAS, a number of proposals from previous administrations and some now
    pending from the present administration and from Congress may further violate the Constitution of the United States"...

    i like the idea... i think it's what the founders had in mind from the beginning- sovereign states... what a concept.

    but i don't know how all this is going to play out over the next few years...

    Liberal's aren't necessarily federalists. I think the states could do a hell of a lot better job spending my money. Mainly because the people in the state would have far more influence over those spending it.
