Ohio Liberty and Sovereignty Resolution

The Tenth Amendment provides that "powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."

It is our belief that the federal government has consistently over-stepped it's constitutional boundaries and usurped the powers reserved to the states, and therefore the people.

The Ohio Liberty and Sovereignty Resolution will remind the federal government of it's proper role and place. Our goal is to have this resolution adopted and passed by the Ohio State Legislature during this calendar year of 2009.

You may read the resolution as it has been proposed here in pdf format.

Is Ohio alone in this movement? The answer is no. There are no less than 8 states that have introduced similar legislation, and it is expected that no fewer than 20 are considering similar action. The state sovereignty movement clearly arises from the belief that the balance of power has tilted too far and for too long in the direction of the federal government and that it's time to restore that loose balance.

So, would you please join us in support of The Ohio Liberty and Sovereignty Resolution by signing the petition? All signatures will be delivered to the Ohio State House in early to mid-March after Congress finishes up the state budget and committee appointments.
