Don't Mess With Texas

No, really. Don't.

Gov. Perry Backs Resolution Affirming Texas’ Sovereignty Under 10th Amendment

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.

It also designates that all compulsory federal legislation that requires states to comply under threat of civil or criminal penalties, or that requires states to pass legislation or lose federal funding, be prohibited or repealed.

I think this makes Governor Perry and, possibly, all citizens of Texas, subject to close surveillance by the Department of Homeland Security.
