From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
More than 500 people flooded the Capitol rotunda Wednesday calling for more states’ rights and less government.
State legislators touted their beliefs on states’ rights to those gathered from across the state, the majority from the St. Louis area.
Many of the attendees said they were disheartened by the direction of the federal government and chose to become politically active at the grassroots level. They say they hope their action in local communities will encourage state and federal lawmakers to respect states’ rights.
Of most importance to the rally’s organizers was the issue of health care reform, which has stalled in the federal government and has caused concern for some Tenth Amendment advocates.
The rally came after lawmakers proposed two resolutions aimed at protecting states’ rights and preserving health care choice, advocates said. The rally was organized by conservative groups including I Heard the People Say, Missouri Eagle Forum and the Missouri Sovereignty Project.
