The great State of Montana continues to defy the District of Confiscation

From the Tenth Amendment Center Blog:

More Nullification in Montana

Montana, already defying Washington DC on Real ID and Medical Marijuana. Montana, first state to pass a firearms freedom act, now considering a new version to add fines and jail time for federal agents. Montana, standing up to the feds once again. This time, the issues is wolves – a very contentious one in the Northwest.
Yesterday, from Governor Brian Schweitzer:
“We will take action in Montana on our own,” he said. “We’ve had it with Washington, D.C., with Congress just yipping about it, with (the Department of) Interior just vacillating about it.”
from the AP report:
Defying federal authority over gray wolves, Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer on Wednesday encouraged ranchers to kill wolves that prey on their livestock – even in areas where that is not currently allowed – and said the state will start shooting packs that hurt elk herds.
Schweitzer said he no longer would wait for federal officials to resolve the tangle of lawsuits over wolves, which has kept the animals on the endangered species list for a decade since recovery goals were first met.
.204, .223, or .243?  What do you use?

It was just a few years ago that the same Governor Schweitzer had this to say about pressure from the Bush administration to comply on Real ID:
we found that it’s best to just tell them to go to hell and run the state the way you want to run your state.


  1. Too bad Rick "The Hair" Perry (Bilderberg attendee) and the gaggle of libtards and neocons which inhabit "Moscow on the Colorado" (Austin, TX) won't follow Montana's lead. Texas used to be a great state, but we've had too many infiltrators from occupied Kalifornia infest our home. Still waiting on the real folk out on the farms and ranches to look up and say "wait a damn minute..."

    Rural Texas is still Texas. But the cities have been taken over by the libtard horde...

  2. It's the same damn near everywhere, Mayberry. That's why I left Far Northern California (Yreka) for Oregon. That's why I left Oregon for Montana. But we have that problem even here in Montana. Fortunately, there are still some conservatives in the cities here, too, although their numbers are dwindling.

    If there weren't so many liberals in the cities of Montana, Baucus and Tester would never have been elected. Or re-elected. I'm hoping the folks here kick them out in 2012.

  3. It is great that these states are thinking/doing this, but in the end, it will have to be backed up by force to be meaningful.

    We'll see who blinks first.
