To date, 38 states have introduced 10th amendment resolutions asserting state sovereignty and giving the Federal Government a "cease and desist" order. Only one problem, they aren't worth the paper they're printed on. Out of 8 states that have passed such a resolution, only 2, Alaska and Tennessee are the only two to have their Governors sign them. And NONE of them have the strength of law. They are non-binding resolutions only. All they are, and I'll admit to being caught up in it too, are attempts to pacify the people at home. They are merely stabs by the state politicians to keep their jobs and show their "independence".
It is all a crock of warmed up horse manure. If the politicians would like to truly tell the government how their constituents felt, they would make it STATE LAW. Not some worthlessly wordy non-binding resolution that no one will remember 2 years from now. The more I hear about these resolutions the more I want to punch congressmen in the forehead.
I'm telling you right now, the state that stands up and tells the Feds to butt out with a binding state law, I am moving there the next day. Fat chance of that, even Texas is too cowardly to actually stand up and kick the Feds in their asses.
