Sarah Palin Signs Alaskan Declaration of State Sovereignty

Sarah Palin signs declaration of state sovereignty for Alaska, which states in part:
BE IT RESOLVED that the Alaska State Legislature hereby claims sovereignty for the state under the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States over all powers not otherwise enumerated and granted to the federal government by the Constitution of the United States; and be it

FURTHER RESOLVED that this resolution serves as Notice and Demand to the federal government to cease and desist, effective immediately, mandates that are beyond the scope of these constitutionally delegated powers.
As pointed out in this World Net Daily article, the federal government was created to be an agent of the states, not the other way around. With the expansive growth of the federal government over the years, the states have become de facto federal subdivisions instead of soverign bodies.

A number of states have a similar resolution on the drawing boards, but so far only Alaska and Tennessee have actually completed one. Let's hope the movement grows. If Obama isn't stopped, I suspect it will.
