Subject: Oklahoma’s SJR 10 Claiming sovereignty under the 10th Amendment and SJR 11 Rescinding applications to the U.S. Congress to call a Constitutional Convention, by Senator Randy Brogdon, will be heard Tuesday, February 17, 2009!
Calls and emails needed ASAP
The next meeting of the Judiciary Committee of the Oklahoma Senate will be Tuesday, February 17, 2009 at 9:00 am in Room 419-C at the Capitol.
Among several bills to be heard will be Senator Randy Brogdon’s SJR 10 and SJR 11.
SJR 10 reiterates the 10 Amendment of the U.S. Constitution and claims state’s rights. The 10th Amendment reads: “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.” SJR 10 reads in part, “THAT this serve as Notice and Demand to the federal government, as our agent, to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.”
SJR 11 calls for rescinding applications for a Federal Constitutional Convention. A Federal Constitutional Convention would potentially allow the entire U.S. Constitution to be opened to amendment, including the first ten amendments, known as the Bill of Rights.
Given today’s current altered worldview, opening the U.S. Constitution to a Constitutional Convention by the states creates the potential for great damage to be done, i.e. removing the right to free speech, the right to bear arms, and states’ rights under the 10th Amendment.
Please call and email Judiciary Committee Chairman Senator Patrick Anderson and the other committee members to let them know you support SJR 10 and SJR 11and to respectfully ask them to move these bills to the floor to be heard and considered by the whole Senate.
Oklahoma is looked to as a leader in the issue of the 10th Amendment legislation, as well as the rescission of calls for a U.S. Constitutional Convention. Similar legislation is working it’s way through the OK House of Representatives.
