Petition Template: State Sovereignty 2.0
Because the Constitution of the United States of America forms a union of sovereign states with provisions for mutual security and prosperity, and because the federal government of the United States of America has shown a complete disregard for the rights of individual states to govern themselves according to the will of their local populations, and because it has produced legislation endangering the rights of individuals within those states, we, the undersigned citizens of the State of ________________, hereby petition the Legislature of the State of ________________ to enact and the Governor of the State of ________________ to sign legislation reaffirming ________________’s sovereignty under the ninth and tenth amendments of the United States Constitution and that any and all bills passed by the United States Congress and signed into law by the President of the United States which the people of ________________ find unconstitutional shall be held null and void by the State of ________________, her law enforcement agencies and her people. To accomplish said reaffirmation, we, the undersigned citizens hereby authorize the Legislature and the Governor to reject any and all monies from the federal government that may jeopardize the sovereignty of the state of ________________.
