Comment: I am not sure I understand what is to be accomplished.

(See in situ)


I am not sure I understand what is to be accomplished.

I thought a resolution is just a statement voted upon by the Legislature, and not a law, hence having no legal effect.

And if the States are beginning to stand up to the federal government, I cannot imagine a more divisive issue that abortion to use as the focus of this assertion of states rights. I personally am in favor of abortion as a right of the mother as owner of her body. As much as I would like to see the federal government cut down to 1/4 of its present size or even cut down more, I am not about to join in a fight based on an attempt by some to impose their religious views on the rest of us.

Of course, I doubt that there is really much public consensus as yet on the 10th amendment issue, so there probably is not any group other that the religious right to life crusaders who are going to bother much in this fight at this point in time. I really can't see much coming of this because the pain from going along to get along is still much less than the pain from civil war, and in my view, civil war is the only way the enslavement of the citizenry by the federal government is going to come to an end.

"Bend over and grab your ankles" should be etched in stone at the entrance to every government building and every government office.
