From Associated Press/WCAX.com:
Hundreds of activists gathered outside the Statehouse Wednesday to support a Republican lawmaker’s push for states rights.
The House is scheduled to vote on Rep. Daniel Itse’s resolution asserting state sovereignty, or the right to ignore any federal law or policy that violates the U.S. Constitution. Itse says many policies fit the bill, including the No Child Left Behind Act, the federal stimulus package and any new assault rifle ban.
Itse said lawmakers voting against the resolution should fear for their re-election. His supporters chanted “No King Obama” and held placards. One read “Secession is a Human Right.”
It’s great to see activists taking a stand in support of liberty.Â If you know of an event in your area, please contact us to let us know.
