September 2011 Newswatch Magazine “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that

among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. … But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security…”
-Thomas Jefferson Texas Governor Rick Perry On Sunday, May 17, 2009, Governor Perry stated the following: “About a month ago, I stood with a bipartisan group of Texas legislators to speak in support of a resolution honoring the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The resolution simply restates the Constitution’s principle of federalism - that powers not granted to the national government, nor prohibited to the states, are reserved to the states or the people. “At a time when the federal government is passing trillion-dollar bailouts, bullying states to increase taxes and bureaucracies, and even

taking control of private companies, Americans are increasingly reconnecting with the concept of LIMITED GOVERNMENT in that amendment. “I can’t say I was surprised that critics recast my defense of federalism and fiscal discipline into advocacy for secession from the Union.  I have never advocated for secession and never will. “Like the president, members of Congress and every other state governor, I have sworn oaths to our nation and Constitution. My sincere pledge to uphold and defend the Constitution has fueled my concern and my statements about recent unprecedented expansion of our federal government. “The tea parties that rose up across the country are examples of what Thomas Jefferson, an architect of our Constitution, meant when he said, “Every generation needs a new revolution.” In our time, informed dissent is taking shape in response to Washington’s unprecedented excess. When Congress and the resident [in the White House] make plans to increase the federal debt by one-third in just the administration’s first 100 days, citizens and taxpayers should be worried. When federal stimulus bills force state governments to change long-standing laws, raise taxes and INCREASE government spending, citizens and taxpayers should be outraged. The swollen river known as the federal government has clearly overflowed its banks.
