AZ, HI, MI, MO, MT, NH, OK, WA Assert Soverignty

I saw this on DailyPaul.com, chased it down, and found a bunch of other blogs that are talking it over.

It's not really mainstream news (yet), but cropping up on blogs across the net is the story of states who are asserting the 10th Amendment (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). It could be a lot of smoke, or it could be a whole lot of people finally taking an assertive stance now that the Bush administration has left.

Either way, this is a good thing.
