A quick glance at their recent op-ed – States tell Obama to Take a Hike – it seems pretty obvious that they’re at least getting the message. Here’s an excerpt: Arizona, Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana, Missouri and Virginia have opted out of an even larger slice of Obamacare by rejecting the health coverage mandate. The anti-Obamacare…Details
Kentucky Rep, Stan Lee (R – Lexington) has prefiled a Joint Resolution for the 2011 regular session reaffirming Kentucky’s sovereignty under the Ninth and Tenth Amendments.
The resolution, BR 55, “…serves as notice and demands to the federal government…to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.”
Lee said that the federal government needs do what it was intended to do and state government needs to do what it was intended to do.
“The health care debacle and failed stimulus bill are but two examples of the federal government’s attempt to cast a long shadow over Kentucky and our people, “ Lee said. “This joint resolution serves as a reminder to those who seek to make our federal government an eight-headed monster that we will no longer stand by and see our sovereign rights taken away.”
Lee introduced a similar resolution in the 2010 regular session, but it failed to pass.Details

Gubernatorial candidates Paul LePage and Kevin Scott, along with others, discuss 10th amendment/state sovereignty issues.
Big ideas emerge, such as the Federal Tax Escrow Account. This would allow states to collect all taxes and only send money to the federal government if we agree on how they are going to spend it.
Nullification is here. Tentative and inconsistent, but it’s here. Missouri Over 2/3 of voters elect to reject Federally mandated health care insurance. The White House official response was that this is irrelevant. California 7,000,000 votes negated by 1 politician, masquerading as a judge. The law had nothing to do with the ruling.

I was turned against federalism by two things. First, when I’d walk up to get my first-grader after school in the neighborhood of Duke University in Durham, N.C., I had to keep my hand on my 3-year-old, to keep the students from touching her. They were not bad kids, but they were nervous and erratic because their mothers were addicted to heroin when they were born. The second was the president. Although I had voted for him twice, it appeared to be a mother/child relationship he had with Hillary. Lots of men — especially artists and musicians — have that because it works for them. But when it became approved by a good majority it seemed we had gotten to the end of the difficult work we started back in 1776.
The first was failure on a catastrophic scale. The nervous students had no chance. No doubt many of them are dead already. Except for my kids and maybe three others, the students were all black. The white liberals in the neighborhood, most of whom worked or taught at Duke, would try to get their kids in the “AG” classes in the public school, which contained only two or three students. If they didn’t get in, they’d send them to private schools.Details
The Constitution isn’t just for conservatives, it isn’t just for liberals – it’s for all of us.

It is clear that Missourians not only oppose the new federal health care law, but also the individual insurance mandate in the new law that would force individuals to purchase health insurance, or face fines and penalties. Equally troubling for Missourians are the nearly weekly updates from the Congressional Budget Office that show that, instead of reducing the federal deficits, ObamaCare will cost an additional 800 billion dollars over the next ten years. Because of these concerns, a Rasmussen poll released this week showed that a clear majority of Missourians still want the new federal bill repealed. Even though this opposition was made clear in town halls and tea parties, Congress passed the bill against the objections of Americans.
In an effort to protect Missourians from this dangerous encroachment on our freedoms, a bipartisan super majority of state legislators supported the Health Care Freedom Act during the 2010 legislative session.Details
