Texas State Bill Will Nullify All Federal Unconstitutional Acts

Texas lawmaker Dan Flynn has introduced legislation that would invalidate within the sovereign borders of his state every act of the federal government that exceeds its constitutionally derived authority.

State Representative Dan Flynn’s bill — House Bill 98 — denies to the federal government:

the power to take any legislative, executive, or judicial action that violates the constitution, specifically including those actions that unconstitutionally undermine, diminish, or disregard the balance of powers between the states and the federal government established by the constitution.

Flynn goes on to cite chapter and verse of the Constitution and the principles of federalism in defense of his position that the state of Texas retains the power to refuse to carry out federal mandates that are not specifically authorized in the Constitution’s enumeration of federal powers.

Could we give Texas back to Mexico?

I can only hope that the powers that be do not quash this bill...It's refreshing that finally a State has the fortitude to tell the Gov. that they are wrong and to step off of it's high horse.

About Damned time the states start standing up to the bankers' puppets in Washington.

Hopefully, the rest will follow suit in short order and put those scum bags in Washington out to pasture (hopefully in federal pens) as they should be.

You go Texas! Hopefully the rest will promptly follow their lead.

Now, all we need is to have the other 49 states follow ND's banking model and we can restore prosperity to this country.

History is repeating itself. Something like this happened when John Adams-2nd president- was in office and the states were VA and Kentucky if my memory serves correctly.
