    The more states that do this, the more choices Hubs and I will have when we are looking for somewhere else to move.

    “With each state,” Steele said, “we gain power.”

    Whatever the vote, every state that raises the issue is serving notice to Obama & ilk that they vehemently don’t like what Obama is doing to our country.

    This is starting to pick up momentum. So far, to my knowledge, Alaska and Tennessee are the only states in which the legislature has passes the “sovereignty act” and the governor has signed it. Texas may become the third as Perry is pushing it. Oklahoma’s legislature has passed it, but it won’t become law until 2011 when Mary Fallin is sworn in as governor.

    Next year they consider a vote on it?? Why not this year? whatever the more it’s discussed the better I guess.

    MFg –

    Is there a “sovereignty movement” in Louisiana? You have a Republican governor and, unless I am mistaken, the legislature is also Republican.

    So far state sovereignty is more symbolic than anything else.

    But, it does serve notice, as INC said, that more and more people are restless with his policies…and, seem more willing to force an exit from them, if push comes to shove!

    The “sovereignty movement” is really just a long overdue reminder that we have a “FEDERAL system” which means the STATES have the ultimate power to govern themselves, but are Federated for several key trans-State issues (defense, inter-State Commerce, etc).

    Sadly, too many folks think “FEDERAL system” means the Federal Government should reign supreme…which is NOT the case!

    The 10th Amendment is the perfect mechanism for States to use to remind the Feds over theis PROPER role in our society!

    That’s it, PG, just one

    Texas first, then OK and LA

    Oklatex would be a very strong country, geographically compact, loaded with natural resources, ports, common culture

    Sovereignty should become a reality in Louisiana before Oklahoma. The only thing holding it up is the Democratic governor’s refusal to sign it. It won’t be signed in Oklahoma until Mary Fallin is sworn in in 2011.

    Need Mississippi so how are they on a sovereignty statement? Need control of both sides of Ole Man River.

    I’m in Georgia–can we join? I’d hate to leave the SE GA coastal region. And then we’ll need Alabama and Florida.

    Maybe call it Oklatexabamsflaga.

    Or why not keep it simple and call it the SEC? I don’t know what the whole acronym would stand for, but the ‘C’ would damn sure stand for Conservative.

    FL would join, from Orlando up to the panhandle, but south of Tampa the state would break off and join Cuba.

    And good riddance…

    I could have beachfront property, heh…

    “I’m in Georgia–can we join?”

    Technically we did already … back in ’97 see how much good it did?
