Is the Federal govít conspiring with state govít to takeover America?

Office of the Governor Rick Perry - Gov. Perry Speaks in Support of Statesí Rights.

Thank you, Representative [Brandon] Creighton and thank you for taking the initiative to introduce a piece of legislation that I believe will serve as a wakeup call to a lot of Texans.

Here in Texas, here in the capitol, we typically spend more time talking about the Texas constitution, but it is definitely time to talk about the U.S. Constitution and the protections it guarantees.

I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country, but, most of all, here in Texas, to reaffirm the statesí rights affirmed through the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I am in favor of the clear, bold step represented by HCR 50, introduced by Representative Creighton, and co-authored by Representative Guillen. Itís clear that this is not a partisan issue: it concerns all Americans, and all Texans.

The Tenth Amendment was enacted by folks who remembered what it was like to be under the thumb of a distant, all-powerful government. Unfortunately, the protections it guarantees have melted away over time.

You are probably familiar with the old adage about how to boil a frogÖyou just ease the heat up a little bit at a time, so the frog doesnít realize the danger itís in, until itís too late.
