More News on the State Sovereignty Fight

"There's an old joke in South Carolina: Confederate President Jefferson Davis may have surrendered at the Burt-Stark mansion in Abbeville, S.C., in 1865, but the people of state Rep. Michael Pitts's district never did. With revolutionary die-hards behind him, Mr. Pitts has fired a warning shot across the bow of the Washington establishment. As the writer of one of 28 state "sovereignty bills" – one even calls for outright dissolution of the Union if Washington doesn't rein itself in – Pitts is at the forefront of a states' rights revival, reasserting their say on everything from stem cell research to the Second Amendment."

Gotta keep up the push for the federal government to start respecting what powers were granted it by the people. Anything else is a power grab that is unconstitutional and illegal.

On a side note, Kentucky "legislatures" allowed the bill to languish in committee and did not allow it to see the floor for a vote. Their session is over for this year, so you might as well say it failed via "procedure".
