For Immediate Release
Chatham, New York
There has been a movement growing in America over the past two years as the people have come to realize that the ever growing Federal Government is becoming more and more intrusive into their daily private lives and that their personal Liberty and individual Freedoms are in danger of being severely limited or lost all together. Because of this, state legislatures in a growing number of states have recently passed State Sovereignty bills designed to reaffirm their constitutional guaranteed rights of sovereignty under the 10th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. 
The 10th Amendment, which is part of the Bill of Rights, states:
“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.”
These 10th Amendment resolutions are intended to carry a message: States’ rights and the rights of the American people are being trampled on by their own federal government when that government is supposed to be a limited, servant government whose main purpose it to protect the unalienable rights of the American people. Unfortunately, for many, many decades, the federal government has unconstitutionally expanded its powers by passing legislation, creating agencies and imposing mandates on the states, such as the recent health care reform bill and economic recovery bills, that they have absolutely no power under the Constitution to do.  The Constitution was written in such a way as to clearly limit the power of the federal government to specific “enumerated powers.” All other powers are retained and reserved to the individual States or to the people.  
In 2009, thirty-seven state legislatures introduced 10th Amendment sovereignty measures and by the end of the year, seven state legislatures — Alaska, Idaho, Louisiana, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota and Tennessee — passed such legislation.
Already in 2010, sovereignty resolutions have been introduced in another 17 states and now the first public rally in support of the U.S. Constitution and New York State  Sovereignty is coming to the State Capital in Albany New York on August 7, 2010 at 12:noon.
Several Liberty and Tea Party groups in New York state have come together to organize the rally, including members from Primary Challenge, Campaign for Liberty, 912 group, Oath Keepers, the 10 Amendment Center and others. Many grassroots candidates for federal, state and local offices have already indicated they will be there to show their support for the 10th Amendment.  Many elected Sheriffs from both New York State and some surrounding states are expected to attend to hear the keynote speaker, retired Sheriff Richard E. Mack of Arizona, talk about the important role of the Sheriff in the State Sovereignty movement and in protecting the individual and unalienable rights of American citizens in their counties.
The American people are being invited to join in solidarity with their fellow citizens to come together to show support of the 10th Amendment with one single message for their elected and appointed officials in both Washington DC and Albany:  “OBEY THE CONSTITUTION.”
