Oklahoma Votes To Claim It’s Sovereignty

This is no joke! Essentially, Oklahoma just voted to secede from the Union! The Oklahome State House of Representatives voted 73-22 to override Gov. Brad Henry’s veto of the resolution and now the State Senate is expected to pass it as well.

From NewsOK:

“We’re going to get it done one way or the other,” said the resolutions’ author, Rep. Charles Key, R-Oklahoma City.

“I think our governor is out of step.”

House Democrats objected, saying the issue already had been taken up and had been vetoed, but House Speaker Pro Tempore Kris Steele, R-Shawnee, ruled the veto is not final action.

Key said he expects HCR 1028 will pass in the Senate. HJR 1003 earlier passed the House 83-18 and won approval in the Senate 29-18.

Henry vetoed HJR 1003 because he said it suggested, among other things, that Oklahoma should return federal tax dollars.

Key said HCR 1028, which, if passed, would be sent to Democratic President Barack Obama and the Democratic-controlled Congress, would not jeopardize federal funds but would tell Congress to “get back into their proper constitutional role.” The resolution states the federal government should “cease and desist” mandates that are beyond the scope of its powers.

Will Oklahoma be the only one? Or will Oklahoma simply be the first? This is the first time since 1861 that any state has made any attempt at dissolving the Federal Union.

It will be interesting to see how Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress reacts.
