Here and elsewhere I have heard them say over and over the constitution is outdated and should not be followed. Clearly if one follows the constitution much of the left's doctrine is unconstitutional.

Just remember, when you go FAR left or right, common sense starts slipping. The further you go, the less sense you make.

Although that system causes a number of complications, it's also a strategic strength of the nation.

Unlike many other nations, the distribution of essential services and protections is de-centralized enough in the US that the nation would never be paralyzed by a successful terrorist strike on the national capital. While most states would eventually run into great economic difficulty, basic operations and law and order would go on without DC.

Because the federal government hasn't found a way to circumvent the constitution on that particular matter. You can bet they are working on it, though.

Simple and I would think most would know the answer: there are many laws that are controlled by states: that is called state rights. As for the license plates, can you imagine, if nothing else how long the numbers and letters would be if all license plates were controlled by the federal government?

I will say, that is an interesting question though.

The amendment the liberals want to do away with more than any other, even the 2nd.

That depends on the state. Here in Maryland all traffic violation fines: stop sign, red light and speeding (for these two unless they're camera violations, then they go to the locality), reckless driving, DUI, etc. goes to the state which then rebates a very small portion back to the issuing jurisdiction.


Municipalities can game the system a bit if they have their own police department (many ones in Maryland don't but contract instead with the County based Police/Sheriff Departments or the Maryland State Police) by making the violations municipal infractions instead of summonses.

Besides, I love all the different license plates, it’s fun to see the states’ personalities on those things.
Yeah! Like way back when Oklahoma was OK! But then some people may dispute Oklahoma was OK in 1968, because if you were on board a jet and drinking the stewardess would come up to you and grab your drink. When asked why she would say "Because we're about to enter dry air space--Oklahoma!"

God I forgot all about that. We used to play license plates or just plain alphabet when traveling all the time and so did our kids. Now they just play games on their phones or tablets.

How many ways can you spell: BULL? If anything it is visa versa. I do not know a single Republican that doesn't believe in states rights.
