Nieves: We won't follow any government regulation on anything

It was only a matter of time.

Sen. Brian Nieves, R-Washington, an alleged Senate GOP leader, introduced Senate Joint Resolution 17 Wednesday, asking for Missourians to vote on a Constitutional Amendment which says we don't have to follow any federal laws on anything.

Nieves' grabbag resolution covers everything from guns to abortion to the environment and reads like this:

Upon approval by the voters, this constitutional amendment prohibits the Missouri legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government from recognizing, enforcing, or acting in furtherance of any federal action that exceeds the powers delegated to the federal government.

The state also shall not recognize, enforce, or act in furtherance of any federal actions that: restrict the right to bear arms; legalize or fund abortions, or the destruction of any embryo from the zygote stage; require the sale or trade of carbon credits or impose a tax on the release of carbon emissions; involve certain health care issues; mandate the recognition of same sex marriage or civil unions; increase the punishment for a crime based on a perpetrator's thoughts or designate a crime as a hate crime; interpret the establishment clause as creating a wall of separation between church and state; or restrict the right of parents or guardians to home school or enroll their children in a private or parochial school or restrict school curriculum.

The state is also required to interpret the U.S. Constitution based on its language and the original intent of the signers of the Constitution. Amendments to the U.S. Constitution shall be interpreted based on their language and the intent of the congressional sponsor and co-sponsors of the amendment.

The amendment also declares that Missouri citizens have standing to enforce the provisions of the amendment and that enforcement of the amendment applies to federal actions taken after the amendment is approved by the voters, federal actions specified in the amendment, and any federal action, regardless of when it occurred, that the General Assembly or the Missouri Supreme Court determines to exceed the powers enumerated and delegated to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution.

Anyone who was hoping our state legislature was going to spend time debating anything of substance (jobs, anyone?) is going to be disappointed once more.

The resolution received its first reading Wednesday.

Then they should receive no money from the Federal Government either. That would immediately bankrupt the state. Really helps Missouri.

So, let me get this straight. If someone likes what the Constitution says, don't mess with it but if that person{s} do not like it........we need to amend it.

Are you sure your guys weren't born in Texas?

My lawlessness is bigger than your lawlessness said...

Let's see.

None of you want to obey the CONstipation and the Second Amendment to the Bill of Goods, which establishes the federal regime, so you propose to do away with the parts of the social deal you don't like under color of law.

Then you whine when some state senator says that he and other Missourians don't have to obey the federal government or its 'laws' either. Meanwhile your First Kenyan claims that he gets to murder American citizens by drone strike whenever he says so under color of law. This after running guns to the Mexican drug cartels as an excuse for disarming white people.

Looks to me like Civil War II is around the corner. Maybe when all the partisans on one side or another kill or enslave each other then maybe the survivors can live in peace. Or, if in the habit of fighting, not. I know that I sure wouldn't want your kind to live around me without you having to wear the slave collar that you want to set on me. But since I can do my own work, killing is cheaper and safer. Even if your kind wins, then a new round of civil war will break out as you parasites must decide who works and who rules.

I think my lawlessness is bigger than your lawlessness.
