After California increased the number of States for which it has banned State sponsored travel, shocked at the Illiberalism of this pernicious ruling, Tennessee decided to throw the argument right back at them.
A new resolution seeks to implement the same ban AGAINST California because it sees this as forcing their views o others…And they are encouraging all other States to adopt the same position. The idea that a State can impose its beliefs and ideology on another state without permission is ridiculous; it goes against every freedom we stand up for.
California is continuing to isolate itself as more and more people are fleeing for more “America-friendly” states that do not punish people for running a small business. California needs to wake up.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
The resolution encouraged the governor of Tennessee and the Speakers of the Tennessee House of Representatives and Senate to enact a similar travel ban against California, and urged the other 48 states of the Union to not follow California’s example.
The resolution further stated that California’s travel ban was an attempt to “[impose] their unfounded moral judgment” on other states, and amounted to one sovereign entity telling another sovereign entity how to conduct its government.
Tennessee’s senate resolved to send a copy of this resolution to state legislatures throughout the nation to encourage them to “[take] action against this type of blackmail.”
