Gov. Rick Perry joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of statesâ€™ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
â€œI believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,â€ Gov. Perry said. â€œThat is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the statesâ€™ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.â€
Forget the Alamo (for now) – Remember the 10th Amendment! I’m starting to see what President Obama meant by bringing hope. Because Texas is not the only state showing signs of remembering our national roots of liberty.
And just in time for the Tea Party!
