House bypasses governorís veto to claim Oklahomaís sovereignty

Although Gov. Brad Henry vetoed similar legislation 10 days earlier, House members Monday again approved a resolution claiming Oklahoma’s sovereignty.

Unlike House Joint Resolution 1003, House Concurrent Resolution 1028 does not need the governor’s approval.

The House passed the measure 73-22. It now goes to the Senate.

"We’re going to get it done one way or the other,” said the resolutions’ author, Rep. Charles Key, R-Oklahoma City.

"I think our governor is out of step.”

House Democrats objected, saying the issue already had been taken up and had been vetoed, but House Speaker Pro Tempore Kris Steele, R-Shawnee, ruled the veto is not final action.

Key said he expects HCR 1028 will pass in the Senate. HJR 1003 earlier passed the House 83-18 and won approval in the Senate 29-18.

Henry vetoed HJR 1003 because he said it suggested, among other things, that Oklahoma should return federal tax dollars.

Key said HCR 1028, which, if passed, would be sent to Democratic President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress, would not jeopardize federal funds but would tell Congress to "get back into their proper constitutional role.” The resolution states the federal government should "cease and desist” mandates that are beyond the scope of its powers.

Excellent news. Hopefully more states will start fighting back against tyranny.

“House Democrats objected, saying the issue already had been taken up and had been vetoed”

Dem’s just hate it when they have to follow the ‘rule of law’ and the Constitution (State or U.S.).

Unless, of course, it’s in their favor.

Yes exactly! One state needed to take the lead.

Bless those Okies!

In researching which states to move to upon retirement, OK seems to be the leader of the pack as far as conservatism goes. They vote Republican at a higher percentage than other states (I know, these days that may not be a consrvative thing but...) And their anti-illegal immigration laws are top notch.

Maybe we should buy a copy of Liberty and Tyranny for our representatives, governors, and such.

Although Fox News and CNN are not telling you about it, a growing number of states are declaring sovereignty. Washington, New Hampshire, Arizona, Montana, Michigan, Missouri, Oklahoma, California, and Georgia have all introduced bills and resolutions declaring sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment. Colorado, Hawaii, Pennsylvania, Arkansas, Idaho, Indiana, Alaska, Kansas, Alabama, Nevada, Maine, and Illinois are considering such measures.

"I think our governor is out of step.”

Bingo. This is what this country needs.

I hope this state sovereignty thing is a growing trend. States rights have been stripped away from us for years.

The American people are no longer being represented, and they know it!
The tea parties are going to get bigger and bigger. Thank God, people are finally speaking up.

We get it right down here. Now, if we can get the governorship back this state can really move forward.

Thanks for your link. I read it and found myself in my "happy place."

This is great news. The politicians in Washington must be dumbfounded.

Well, since I’m from New York, I guess being on the OKLAHOMA ping list isn’t quite the place to be.

But thanks for the invite anyway!

Our Governor is a doofus Dem. He served his first term, acted rather conservative and got reelected, but this second term has him firmly in the Dem fold and proudly showing his colors. Good thing he’s term limited, altho I really doubt he would be reelected even if he could run.

Another step forward for the Constitution.

Let’s all join in support of the Tenth Amendment.
