NOW IT’S TENNESSEE that’s pushing a state sovereignty resolution. I saw somebody — I forget where — calling these things “neo-confederate,” but if you look at the list of states where they’ve been proposed, well, the Confederacy must be getting pretty big, to encompass places like Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. But I think they’re a dumb idea — supporters would be better off getting behind Randy Barnett’s constitutional proposal, which is much more likely to make a difference.
