Hoosiers Go Rogue; Use 10th Amendment to Claim They Are Sovereign

There are many legitimate reasons to complain about or protest government actions. Then again, some reasons are nutty, which is exactly what we have now in Indiana.

Using a highly questionable interpretation of the Tenth Amendment, these folks say they can claim their own sovereign status, which (conveniently) means that they don't have to pay taxes.

Cool—and quite idiotic. The state of Indiana isn't buying it. Neither is anyone else with half a brain.

Only the Tea Party folks think this notion is legal—and they happen to be wrong. The story here.

Of course, these folks are great students and scholars of the Constitution, not just whackos looking for the nearest cudgel.
