Oklahoma Voters Reject Health Care Mandates

Voters in Oklahoma today decided that they don’t want a law to require them to buy health insurance, as they voted to approve State Question 756 by a wide margin (64% in favor at the time of this writing). The question was the result of the Oklahoma legislature passing Senate Joint Resolution 59 (SJR59) this year.

The legislation states that “A law or rule shall not compel, directly or indirectly, any person, employer or health care provider to participate in any health care system” – in an attempt to nullify health insurance mandates within the state. It previously passed the State Senate by a vote of 30-13 and the State House by a vote of 88-9.

Arizona, South Dakota: A Chance to Advance the Nullification Movement

On Election Day, Arizona and South Dakota will vote on initiatives to partially nullify Federal narcotics laws pertaining to the medicinal use of cannabis. These initiatives are important to the residents of both states for many reasons. They offer a re-assertion of state sovereignty and interposition by the state(s) on behalf of patients and their caregivers.

They affirm the sanctity of the doctor/patient relationship independent of Federal meddling. They provide patients safe access to their medication. And perhaps most importantly, they affirm that Arizona and South Dakota are willing to join the group of states in this Union (as well as the Federal District) and the nations around the world who accept the standard that judges societies by how well they treat their weakest and most vulnerable members.

Action Alert: Kill REAL ID in PA!

I received this message in e-mail from a friend of the Tenth Amendment.


What: Three bills were introduced into the Pennsylvania Senate as a privacy protection package by Senator Mike Folmer(R), District 48, over one and a half years ago. One of those bills, SB 621, The REAL ID Nonparticipation Act, to prohibit implementation of Real ID in Pennsylvania was unanimously passed on June 15 by the full Senate and sent to the PA House Transportation Committee. That committee amended the bill, then passed it unanimously on Sept 13 and referred it to the House Appropriations Committee where it sits. Time is very short. The last House session day for the 2009-2010 Assembly session is only six weeks from today, and there are only 7 more meetings scheduled for Appropriations.

Isn’t that a relief?  In his latest instruction to the masses, CNN’s Rick Sanchez calls “states’ rights” a “racist” term.  Now leaving aside the objection that “states don’t have rights; people do” (the term is merely a kind of shorthand, after all), Sanchez is of course in his Enforcer role here, letting us all know…
