    I did a run down on a bunch of them last night and most are being read in the State Congress currently.

    I think that in general it's saber rattling by the states to scare the Federal Government (although NH probably is not just saber rattling), if any come to anything I'm pretty sure that we'll find out on any major news outlet.

    While I certainly support the idea of state's rights this statement is simply untrue.

    Texas is NOT sovereign. Texas WILLFULLY requested annexation into the U.S. In fact, it wasn't until Polk was elected under a manafest destiny platform that Texas got its way. The annexation document does NOT give Texas the right to leave the union. Even if it did (which it didn't), Texas DID attempt to leave the union and join the CSA. We all know how that story ended.

    Interesting doesn't begin to describe this. I'm very surprised to see my home state of Washington on the list. It will be interesting to see how this plays out. I imagine that it won't go anywhere. If our country has another civil war, I highly doubt that it will be started by politicians.

    From the Texas Constitution, Section 1, Articles 1 & 2:

    I like how Section 2 has a line similar to one in the Declaration of Independence: "...they have at all times the inalienable right to alter, reform or abolish their government in such manner as they may think expedient."

    And from the Declaration: "But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security."


    BTW, is it just me or did the Colonies break away from England over far less atrocities than what our current government is subjecting us to?
