abbottTexas Governor Wants To Amend The Constitution So States Can Ignore The Federal Government
Short of secession, it’s probably the next best thing.
Sam Levine Associate Politics Editor, The Huffington Post

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) on Friday proposed a series of amendments to the U.S. constitution that would permit states to override the Supreme Court and ignore federal laws.
One of the proposed measures would allow a two-thirds majority of the states to override federal regulations, while another sets the same threshold for overturning decisions by the Supreme Court. The governor also wants to change the Constitution to block Congress from “regulating activity that occurs wholly within one state,” and to require a supermajority of seven Supreme Court votes before a “democratically enacted law” can be overturned.

abbott2Abbott said in a document explaining the proposed changes that they were motivated by federal officials’ disregard for the constitutional limits on their power. Recently, he has been critical of federal actions such as the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage and President Barack Obama’s executive actions on immigration.
“The Texas Plan is not so much a vision to alter the Constitution as it is a call to restore the rule of our current one. The problem is that we have forgotten what our Constitution means, and with that amnesia, we also have forgotten what it means to be governed by laws instead of men,” Abbott wrote.
Abbott is calling for a constitutional convention to ratify his amendments. A constitutional amendment may be added through a convention called for by two-thirds of state legislatures,
but no amendment has ever been added through that process.


How about this Greg? …
Any state who wants to “Ignore the Federal Government” doesn’t get any money from the Federal Government – you know – for any of their states emergencies. There – all taken care of.
no currency, no military bases – or military protection, no NASA, no federal ANYTHING …
roads, telephones, hospitals, sewers, waterlines, electrical, anything the government had a hand in …
You would have a tough time paying for all that stuff considering you and yer gang o’ fools don’t want to collect taxes either …
No subsidies for highways, airports, and terminate all Amtrak Service at the States borders.
Then, you send Texas a bill for infrastructure, disaster relief, pull out all Federal agencies, NASA etc. If they wont pay, sell the state back to Mexico …
I find it endlessly amusing that the Cletus’ and Billy-Joe_Ray-Bobs are the ones who scream the loudest about “PROTECTIN’ THE CONSTITUTION” right up until they disagree with something that the federal government did, then they’re the first to bring out the matches as they attempt to set the Constitution ablaze …
They memorized the second half of the second amendment, which was the extent of their civics education. Now they think they are Washington crossing the Delaware.
apparently the civil war will never be over … this the main obstacle to American greatness in the 21st century; no real national unity absent a clear and present outside threat; the nation crumbling within …It’s happened to all big republics …
This is why one needs federal government in places to keep the country together …
I am beginning to believe a wall should be built … Around Austin!!!!!
Maybe Abbott should write a letter to the President of Iran … He will tell him how the US government works, just like when the Senators wrote to him …
Fools and idiots, all of ‘em …
just sayin’ …
