According to Bob Unruh at World Net Daily, “A new wave of revolution in support of individual and states rights is developing across the United States…”
Whether on the left or the right, a growing number of people are recognizing that one-size-fits all solutions are the worst possible “solution” to issues in this country. In response, they’re looking inward – to state governments instead of D.C. – as a way to deal with political concerns.
just in the last year dozens of states have considered and seven states have passed sovereignty resolutions under the 10th Amendment. Two states have passed laws nullifying some federal firearms regulations and have faced threats from the federal government. Thirteen states now have medical marijuana provisions that directly conflict with federal laws. And several states – at least three so far – are working on constitutional amendments that would allow residents to opt-out of any future national health care plan.
Where will this lead? Only time will tell if these state legislators will have the backbone to stand up and actually resist when the federal government disagrees. I’m sure we’ll find some – we definitely need to support them.
