- State of Delaware Legislatures
- United States of America
The Tenth Amendment provides that “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.”
It is our belief that the federal government has consistently over-stepped its constitutional boundaries and usurped the powers reserved to the states, and therefore the people.
A Delaware Sovereignty Resolution will remind the federal government of its proper role and place.
Our goal is to have a resolution adopted and passed by the Delaware State Legislature during the calendar year 2009.
Is Delaware alone in this movement? The answer is no. There are no less than 26 states that are claiming and/or planning similar legislation.
The State Sovereignty movement clearly arises from the belief that the balance of power has tilted too far and too long in the direction of the federal government and that it’s time to restore that loose balance.
So, would you please join us in support of a Delaware Sovereignty Resolution by signing the petition?
In Support of:
A Joint Resolution claiming Sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over certain powers; serving notice to the federal government to cease and desist certain mandates; and directing distribution.
We the People of the State of Delaware undersigned, demand that The Delaware General Assembly pass a resolution claiming Delaware's sovereignty under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States during the calendar year 2009.
