Texas tells D.C. to BACK OFF!
The Republic of Texas, lead by Governor Rick Perry, is drawing a line in the sand via HCR 50. HCR 50 reaffirms the sovereignty of Texas and rights of states under the 10th amendment. HCR 50 tells D.C. that their unbridled infringement on states and individual rights will no longer be tolerated, at least in Texas.
From Office of Texas Governor Rick Perry:
“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”
A number of recent federal proposals are not within the scope of the federal government’s constitutionally designated powers and impede the states’ right to govern themselves. HCR 50 affirms that Texas claims sovereignty under the 10th Amendment over all powers not otherwise granted to the federal government.

God bless the Republic of Texas!
God help us!
