Well being in OK I haven't heard any of this.
I do know there has been opposition to "REAL ID", and that has been in the news. So it seems this maybe related to that.
I have a couple of takes on this.
1. This could gain real momentum and garner alot of votes. Many Oklahoma's Christians are of the dispensationalist/tribulationist eschatology. In
other words, they beleive in "the end times" i.e. the 2nd coming of Christ. Part of this entails a one world government run by the Antichrist.
Seeing that to Christians who follow this theology, any world government, N. American Union, or NWO would be a cover for a satanic take over, so
anything that is going to be a roadblock to that is going to get tons of support. (Contrary to what I often see here at ATS, very FEW Christians
beleive they can "bring about" or "hasten" the end times).
2. However; OKC's main employer is the Federal Government. Tinker AFB, the FAA academy and center. Down south has Ft Sill, which is growing at a
huge rate, and in McAlester is the army ammo/munitions plant. A threat of "base closures" could ruin the economy. Wouldn't be that hard to get
the legislature in line.
I also beleive about 15 years ago the OK legislature issued a proclomation or non binding resolution saying the state would not particpate or be a
part of any "world government".
Going to be interesting.
