Oh you are so right Edward. If the states did not have the right to make laws and enact legislation that applies to that state only, then what power do they have? This is an issue that has been resurrected and it needs to have more education on the issues so people who have been through the Reconstructed History classes can understand what the Constitution is clear on. Nothing a state or the Federal government does should in any way interfere with the Bill of Rights. There was a reason this was set into motion by the Founders and it's been lost in the PC shuffle. If people do not pay attention, we're going to face some of the same decisions our ancestors did and it won't be easy to stand up for what we, the people, still believe in. This is, in my opinion, much of the reason the Southern States believed they needed to act boldly to make a point.
