Therefore, We, the People of Nebraska, do solemnly declare that Nebraska is a Sovereign State, equal among the Several States of the Union, but eminent to the Federal Government thereof, which is limited to the enumerated powers of the Constitution, as expressly provided therein, and as directly recognized thereby, in the Tenth Amendment thereto, such that, “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.”
Because the People of Nebraska have the Right not to suffer the Federal Government’s wrongs, they also have the Right to prevent said wrongs by enacting legislation, either by popular referendum or legislative action, through the superior Sovereignty of the State of Nebraska. In order to serve as a rampart against the Federal Government’s past, present, and promised wrongs, the People of Nebraska call upon the Legislature of the Sovereign State of Nebraska to pass, with due haste, and without delay, the Nebraska State Sovereignty Resolution.
Although only a beginning, this action by the Legislature will sound the bell of Liberty, and notify the Federal Government that, despite its long train of abuses and usurpations, the Sovereignty of the great State of Nebraska, and the Freedom of Her People, are not at an end: they are resurrected; they are reasserted; and they will not be arrogated by the Federal Government any longer.
This is a very good sign of things to come. The people of Nebraska are telling the FED to stick it.
