Texas Governor Affirms Texas Sovereignty Under the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

On April 9, 2009, Rick Perry, the Republican Governor of Texas, held a press conference in which he said that the federal government has become oppressive and stated his unwavering support for the U.S. Constitution which guarantees the sovereignty of every individual state under the Tenth Amendment. Governor Perry called for the adoption of a resolution asserting the proper role of the federal government and the states as designed by the Founding Fathers.

The Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states the following:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Americans should welcome Governor Perry’s leadership in protecting the sovereignty of the great State of Texas and his determination to rein in the power seekers at the federal level of government.

We urge you to urge the governor of your state to join with Governor Perry in this essential move to restore constitutional rights to the states and to the people.
