Really? Then why are Republicans trying to restrict California from regulating their own automobile emissions standards? When Republicans are in office they love federal laws. Republicans are literally opposing states rights here.

Trust me. I know you wait in line or have to take a number in some states but would you REALLY want to deal with the Federal government every year just to get your renewal tag?

Great theory.


States are independent sovereign entities. The Federal government governs 50 independent entities. Not the people directly.

The States govern the Counties/ Parish Here is were it starts getting close to the people.


This is a bottom up government.
180 degrees different than ALL OTHER Governments in the world. They are all TOP DOWN tyrannies.

Nothing in the Constitution gets removed.
It only gets Amended.
Alcohol Prohibition is still there in all it's tyrannical glory...(only time the Constitution has ever taken Liberty)

Why can't we just settle on the text of the constitution, and quit adding language into it with legislation, which is unconstitutional.

It's called "federalism." The United States is a federal republic, not a confederation or unitary State.


Your high school government teachers failed you miserably. I'd get a lawyer and sue your school district, if I would be you.


Under US federalism, States are sovereign, but they surrendered certain facets of sovereignty in order to speak as a unified front, namely the sovereign right to coin currency, engage in diplomacy and enter into treaties, and to wage war.


The States retain all other sovereign rights.

He is probably one of those HIGHLY "educated", college degree, a master's and maybe even a PHD, dems we hear about all the time.
