Several states have lined up to reclaim their sovereignty and tell the federal government to butt out and Oklahoma has been at the forefront!
It has been done in myriad ways, but all are based on the fact that the Tenth Amendment protects the states from federal tyranny.
While it started a few years back, and has happened over time, a Facebook post on all the things that Oklahoma has done over the years continues to spread daily.
In fact, it has gone so viral, I could not find the origin! But as it is brilliant, I will share it here for you, in its entirety!
You go Oklahoma!
The post perfectly captured the way in which Oklahoma legislators used their constitutionally guaranteed state power to crush the president’s rulings on religion, illegal immigration and more.
For instance, officials in Oklahoma passed an amendment to place the Ten Commandments at the front entrance to the state capitol, despite loud objections from both the Obama administration and the ACLU.
Oklahoma legislators also took a courageous stand against Obama’s anti-gun policies by ruling that citizens in the “have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles.”
Furthermore, officials passed a law to incarcerate illegal immigrants and deport them to their home countries. This bold decision flew in the face of Obama’s unconstitutional executive action on amnesty.
Legislators in Oklahoma also made it so that DNA samples from illegal immigrants were always stored in the Oklahoma database, which in turn made it easier to identify and thus deport criminals who illegally enter into our country.
Even more awesome was that Oklahoma passed a law mandating that all drivers’ license exams be printed in English and no other language. Some might call that law racist, but we call it common-sense.
The most brazen of all laws passed, however, was the the law that officially declared Oklahoma as a sovereign state — one not beholden to the directives of President Barack Obama’s lawless and corrupt federal government.
This law placed Oklahoma among the likes of Texas, Montana and Utah, though a number of other states are likely to follow suit.
It’s terrific to see a state fight back so hard against Obama, and we certainly hope other states follow Oklahoma’s shining example. (H/T Constitution Party of Ohio)
In case you were wondering, Snopes also did a check and proclaimed it true, not that that matters, but some just love to run over there and declare every good conservative item a fallacy!
