Taking the 10th!

A coalition of Republican state legislators are claiming the 10th, Amendment, that is.  The one about state sovereignty.  Here’s the text of the resolution (AJR 51).

Have you read the 10th Amendment lately?

The 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.

I’ve been wondering why there isn’t more of an outcry from state government regarding the encroaching power grabs of the federal government.  I’m not sure how far this bold statement will actually go but at least it is a statement, a stand, for what it’s worth.
