2nd Session of the 51st Legislature (2008)
A Joint Resolution claiming sovereignty under the
Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United
States over certain powers; serving notice to the
federal government to cease and desist certain
mandates; and directing distribution.
WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United
States reads as follows:
"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."; and
WHEREAS, the Tenth Amendment defines the total scope of federal
power as being that specifically granted by the Constitution of the
United States and no more; and
WHEREAS, the scope of power defined by the Tenth Amendment means
that the federal government was created by the states specifically
to be an agent of the states; and

WHEREAS, today, in 2008, the states are demonstrably treated as
agents of the federal government; and
WHEREAS, many federal mandates are directly in violation of the
Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; and
WHEREAS, the United States Supreme Court has ruled in New York
v. United States, 112 S. Ct. 2408 (1992), that Congress may not
simply commandeer the legislative and regulatory processes of the
states; and
WHEREAS, a number of proposals from previous administrations and
some now pending from the present administration and from Congress
may further violate the Constitution of the United States.
THAT the State of Oklahoma hereby claims sovereignty under the
Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all
powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal
government by the Constitution of the United States.
THAT this serve as Notice and Demand to the federal government,
as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates
that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated
THAT a copy of this resolution be distributed to the President
of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, the
Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, the Speaker

of the House and the President of the Senate of each state's
legislature of the United States of America, and each member of the
Oklahoma Congressional Delegation.

PDF Document

The last time this was done, civil war broke out. Do the members here think that the Feds will actually cease and desist? This is good, I hope more people who know more about politics can weigh in.

After I read this, I really had to restrain myself from breaking two separate ATS posting rules by not posting a one-line reply with profanity.
"F*** Yeah!"

I haven`t had time to go through the .pdf yet, but I will before the day is up. I swear I love my state a little more with every passing day!

Thanks for sharing this.

I think this is great news. The federal government has been overstepping the powers described in the Constitution for quite some time now. It's about time for somebody to finally say enough's enough.

So to clarify, does this mean Oklahoma is no longer in the Union, or they are going to take over all the Feds governing duties?

posted on Jun, 14 2008 @ 01:08 PM
link this for real? I mean, like, passed and all over in Oklahoma? 'Cause if it is....then, this is a great victory against the New World Order.

So, I guess what I'm asking is - SERIOUSLY!?

I"ve lived here for 27yrs-am a native-and feel like I'm not really in the USA anyway. It's such a wild west feeling fm the state legislature, I feel the gov't ought to "Federalize" the place. I always wondered how long they would last if they tried being independent. My theory is that Texas would invade it and become the administers for it for the US govt. I lived in Texas for 4 yrs b4 returning in '81 to Ok. and had bad vibes. But it's pretty good with my mate and nbrhood. They love Bush.

Is this is one of the reasons the U.S. Federal government has set up concentration camps in Oklahoma and the rest of the country because the U.S. Federal government saw this coming and that other states would follow?Rik Riley

Sovereignty of a state isn't the same as succeeding from the union of the US - it is just telling the federal government that they can't just take over - they have a purpose and limits and they are bound to those and can't just walk in and take over anything and everything they feel like - such as enforcing the Real ID's or the North American Union. If all states did this, the federal government would still be there - just limited as intended.

This is great. Now, as long as the rest of the states follow their lead, Washington is up a creek without a paddle.

So what is the first thing they will cause the Federal to desist in? Let me know because it could be all talk and no real action behined it. I mean, they may agree to all the things the Federal is doing now and just letting it be known how they stand which wouldnt be as actually bringing about any desist. So let me know what they, by their power, first will cause to step off that is federal.

I hope other states are going to follow their example and fight back against the NWO with a united force. Maybe the final showdown against NWO is just started.

To give the appropriate mood... well, for that case if it's true.

I agree with you, but doubting something because it's on a conspiracy site in PDF without looking into it could be equally dubious...
There's a more valid source, looks like it passed...
Between what you termed Swallowing Garbage, and Towing the Line, I think I'd rather Swallow Garbage.

Did it pass the State Senate and was it signed by the Governor? Its not valid until that happens.

I noticed that anytime somebody spends much time in a state they don't live in, they tend to come away with the impression that state is "backward" or crazy.

Lets not get personal here, If you really have a problem with my state then by all means, U2U me and arrange to meet in person when you get here, and we can discuss it in person. Keep hostility off this board please.

After you're from Oklahoma, could you confirm this news? I hope it's true. Some sort of change in the U.S. would be already necessary.

posted on Jun, 14 2008 @ 03:22 PM
This is the first I have heard of this surprisingly. I thought my network here kept me pretty updated on this stuff...

It appears to be true, as confirmed here.

I'm still looking into this more, as blaine said, it isn't FACT until it has passed senate and governor.

This is probably related to the REAL ID which, Oklahoma has already condemned. There is already state law prohibiting participation in the program.
