As President Barack Obama has advanced his progressive agenda over the past seven-and-a-half years with coerced help from a kowtowed Congress and ruling by executive fiat when they refused, there has been one state consistently at the forefront of opposition to his destructive efforts.
That state is Oklahoma, and there are plenty of reasons why Obama failed to win even a single county in that state during the 2012 election.
Through the actions of the state legislature and governor, Oklahoma has made several moves to stymie the agenda of the Obama administration on such issues as gun control, illegal immigration, and religious liberty, among other things.
Oklahoma has reaffirmed the natural and God-given right of all citizens to keep and bear arms, has allowed for concealed carry on school campuses by trained faculty, and has moved towards allowing unlicensed concealed carry by lawful citizens, despite Obama’s push for stricter gun control.
As Obama has thrown open the borders to waves of illegal immigration, Oklahoma has cracked down by actually holding criminal illegals in custody until they can be deported, keeping a DNA sample in the process to better identify them if they come back and commit more crimes, and mandating the drivers license test be conducted in the English language only.
Oklahoma has also rejected the Common Core educational standards and accompanying propaganda-filled curriculum and has stood strong against the Obamacare healthcare reform law, not to mention their staunch opposition to the job-killing regulations put forward by the Environmental Protection Agency.
Furthermore, they are one of the few states that has declared themselves to be a sovereign state, meaning they are not necessarily beholden to any of Obama’s lawless and corrupt decrees and executive actions.
Oklahoma has set themselves up as an example for other states grown tired of a continuously expanding and far-reaching federal government, largely through the assertion of their 10th Amendment right, and it is hoped that others will soon join them in presenting a united front of states no longer bowing to the diktats emanating out of Washington, D.C.
