State Sovereignty Movement Rediscovers Document Where Liberty Smiles

OU MAY NOT HAVE HEARD much about it, but there's a quiet movement afoot to reassert state sovereignty in America and stop the uncontrolled expansion of federal government power. Almost half of the state legislatures are considering or have representatives preparing to introduce resolutions which reassert the principles of the 9th and 10th Amendments to the Constitution and the idea that federal power is strictly limited to specific areas detailed in the Constitution and that all other governmental authority rests with the states. In the version of this bill being considered in Washington state, they appeal to the authority of...

States Reject Federal Strings

Take a look at this one, folks. It seems that Obama worship is slowing in its tracks less than a full month after the man from Illinois has taken office. Where's that mandate now, Mr. President?

Bush To Waive Rules On Border Fence

HE BUSH ADMINISTRATION will use its authority to bypass more than 30 laws and regulations in an effort to finish building 670 miles of fence along the southwest U.S. border by the end of this year, federal officials said Tuesday. Invoking the two legal waivers— which Congress authorized—will cut through bureaucratic red tape and sidestep environmental laws that currently stand in the way of the Homeland Security Department building 267 miles of fencing in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, according to officials familiar with the plan. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to...
