Days after the 2012 presidential election, citizens from numerous states began assembling petitions at We the People, requesting that the government allow individual states to withdraw from the United States of America in order to create its own new government peacefully.<quoted text>
"Oklahoma just like its goofy neighbor Ark. passing unconstitutional laws"
Correction, Oklahoma has passed laws that DEFEND the Constitution, as they should. I have decided that will be my next vacation destination. And while there, I will make sure all the locals know why I'm visiting.
Earlier this morning a post began circulating on Facebook stating that Oklahoma had become a sovereign state. Responses to this specific post varied from negative to kudos. The posting made the following comment:
"Several weeks ago, we passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign state, not under the Federal Government directives. Joining Texas, Montana and Utah as the only states to do so. More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, Carolina's, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia, Mississippi and Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the South is about to rise up once again. HJR 1003."
The posting implies that Oklahoma recently became a sovereign state, but was referring to a resolution that had been passed in April of 2009. The resolution demanded that the federal government cease and desist mandates beyond its authority as designated by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The declaration was a resolution instead of a law. Therefore, was only a symbolic act which carried no legal value.
