    The Idaho governor has just signed a measure requiring the Idaho Attorney General to sue the federal government if it requires its residents to buy health insurance. 37 other states are currently considering similar measures.

    The State Rights vs Big Government Obamacare could get ugly folks...

    Idaho first to sign law aimed at health care plan
    By JOHN MILLER (AP) – 1 hour ago

    BOISE, Idaho — Idaho took the lead in a growing, nationwide fight against health care overhaul Wednesday when its governor became the first to sign a measure requiring the state attorney general to sue the federal government if residents are forced to buy health insurance.

    Similar legislation is pending in 37 other states.

    Constitutional law experts say the movement is mostly symbolic because federal laws supersede those of the states.

    But the state measures reflect a growing frustration with President President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

    So Obama may land us in the worst constitutional crisis since the Civil War. Wow. And people thought he would change the tone in Washington. I guess he did.

    It's nice to see the States standing up for themselves for once.

    Unfortunately, i fear this is going to end badly. Oh the states might win the court battles. But i fear that Freedom is going to have to renew itself with the blood of patriots soon or will be lost. And i dislike both those scenarios.

    I dislike bloodshed. I understand it's necessary at times. But I dislike it and I feel like this will be avoidable if people just use their brains and stop with these insane unconstitutional policies.
