I dont know about Arizona but I hope every body know's that Colorado is nothing like texas and would never go along with some crazy idea like this. Texas is full of cocky self centerd no state is better than texas we are the best ever type people and Colorado is the complete as far as it gets opposite. U.S postal service? Army? Navy? Air force? Social security?

The Civil War was fought over states' rights and the Confederacy, which was formed by states resisting oppressive tariffs imposed by the federal government, lost the that war.
The civil rights movement was in no small measure a battle for states' rights against the intrusion of the federal government in local affairs regarding race relations. Regardless of how one feels about the outcome of that movement, for all intents and purposes the concept of states' rights was dead.
In my opinion, these resolutions are like closing the door after the horses have galloped off into the sunset.
The remedy is to elect legislators, judges, and executives who hold states' rights in the same esteem that our founders did.
And what about Human rights?

My question is this, if the texas gov, wants to stand up to the US gov't, and point fingers, demand that Texas has the right to is own sovernity, etc. Even get a state law passed to this effect. And all you texans wave flags , clap and are all for it. Cool. But on the other hand, Gov. Perry took large money's from the Us Gov't to fix up Galveston, & Hoston after the 2008 hurricane season. Or have you forgotten that. So the way I see it, you can rail against the Goverment, but ont he slide you still accept large $$$ from them. To me thats just being two-faced.
