Oklahoma Declares Sovereignty

Well, they didn't exactly secede from the union, but it does sound like the Okies a're trying to put the federal government on notice that the U.S. is operating extralegally - overstepping the boundaries of their constitutionally authorized powers. However, I wouldn't necessarily want to be the one to downplay the significance of this event. After all, when North Carolina was debating on whether to secede from the union in a special legislative convention in 1861, A. W. Venable of Granville County famously declared that he would “wipe up every drop of blood shed in the war with this handkerchief of mine.?

My point is that, at the outset, it's often difficult to predict how these things will end up. ;)
