Wisconsin SR-6 bill would free WI from acting as agent of USA

Since April, 2009, there has been a bill in the Wisconsin legislature which would free WI from involuntarily acting as an agent of the federal government. This bill is Senate Resolution 6 (SR-6).

Wisconsin Senate Resolution 6 (SR-6)

April 9, 2009 − Introduced by Senators LEIBHAM, LAZICH, DARLING, GROTHMAN,
HARSDORF and SCHULTZ. Referred to Committee on Ethics Reform and
Government Operations.
Relating to: state sovereignty.

Whereas, the Tenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States 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”; and
Whereas, the Tenth Amendment defines the total scope of federal power as
being that specifically granted by the U.S. Constitution and no more; and
Whereas, as the scope of power is defined by the Tenth Amendment, the federal
government was created by the states specifically to be an agent of the states; and
Whereas, today the states are demonstrably treated as agents of the federal
government; and
Whereas, the legislature has forwarded to the federal government numerous
resolutions opposing federal encroachment on state powers but has received no
response or result from Congress or the federal government; and
Whereas, many federal mandates are directly in violation of the Tenth
Amendment to the Constitution of the United States; and
Whereas, the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in New York v. United States, 112
S. Ct. 2408 (1992) that Congress may not simply commandeer the legislative and
regulatory processes of the states; and
Whereas, a number of federal proposals from previous administrations and
some now pending from the present administration and from Congress may further
violate the U.S. Constitution;

now, therefore, be it Resolved by the senate,
That the senate hereby claims sovereignty 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 U.S.
Constitution; and, be it further
Resolved, That adoption of this resolution does not constitute an application
for the calling of a federal Constitutional Convention within the meaning of Article
V of the U.S. Constitution; and, be it further
Resolved, That this resolution shall 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 its constitutionally delegated powers; and, be it further
Resolved, That the senate chief clerk shall provide copies of this joint
resolution to the president of the United States, to the speaker of the U.S. House of
Representatives, to the presiding officer of each house of each state legislature of the
United States, and to each member of this state’s congressional delegation.

To educate yourself further, about the topic of federalism, I have selected a very easy to understand article. Constitutional Topic: Federalism.

Note: Before you decide whether or not you want to promote dual federalism or even a return to a confederation type of government, you might decide whether or not you owe it to yourself to, first, proclaim your own individual sovereign rights. We MUST secure the Bill of Rights, as written, and as intended by the framers of the US Constitution for the enduring benefit of the people.
