Texas Threatens To Lock Up Advocates Of Obama’s Unconstitutional NDAA

Excerpts from article:

Written by Texas representative Lyle Larson, the Texas Liberty Preservation Act says that “…Texas shall not provide material support or participate in any way with the implementation of Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 within the legal boundaries of the state of Texas.”

But State Representative Larson will have none of it as he seeks to shield the people of Texas from a law that Republicans in the U.S. Congress could not wait to pass. “Sections 1021 and 1022 of the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 are in direct contravention to the limits of federal power as stated in Article 1, Section 8 of the United States Constitution and are in violation of the Texas constitution,” writes Larson in his Act.

The prospective Texas law relies for its authority and legitimacy on the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. “The Tenth Amendment…provides the United States federal government authorization to exercise only those powers delegated to it in the Constitution (Article 1, Section Eight) and nothing more,” writes Larson. And the NDAA was in no way created according to “…[the] powers delegated to [congress] in the Constitution.”

A taste of their own medicine

Texas law enforcement maybe to strict but it seems they do have some integrity.

I'm all for Texas protecting it's citizens

But where in the article does it say that Larson wants to lock up 'advocates' of NDAA? The title seems a little misleading, unless I overlooked it.

Maybe we're both wrong but I don't see it either..

This will do nothing but keep Texas people and funds from helping the Feds.. but they can print all the money they want so what do they care lol..

They'll just swoop in and whisk you away while Texas watches..

I might be glad to be from Dallas.


DO IT!!!




But what about the powers

But what about the powers delegated to Congress in the 14th Amendment? Article 1, Section Eight are not the ONLY Constitutional powers delegated to congress.

I am proud to be a Texan again! Thank you Mr. Larson for defending the LAW.
