KY Rep Introduces State Sovereignty Resolution
Of course this is a great idea:
On 02/24/09, Kentucky State Representative, John Will Stacy (D) introduced House Concurrent Resolution 168, which reads:
“A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION claiming sovereignty over powers not granted to the federal government by the United States Constitution; serving notice to the federal government to cease mandates beyond its authority; and stating Kentucky’s position that federal legislation that requires states to comply under threat of loss of federal funding should be prohibited or repealed.”
For those history buffs out there, Kentucky was at the forefront in asserting the principles of State Sovereignty in the early days of the Republic. The Kentucky Resolutions of 1798 took what some consider to be the strongest position on this issue in our history.
But most likely nothing will come if it and even if it did you can bet your arse that our Governor will still greedily take our slice of the porkulas bill won’t he while at the same time raising taxes on our 2 largest industries, tobacco and alcohol? uhhh-hmmm.
