    A good reason for having a federal government which can overrule states that discriminate against their own citizens..!!!

    The Constitution is the FOUNDATION for our laws.. Right..???
    .
    The "Supremacy Clause" is IN the Constitution: Article VI "This Constitution, and the laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the Constitution or laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding."

    I consider the foundation of the Constitution as laid on this ground: That "all powers not delegated to the United States, by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States or to the people". To take a single step beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn around the powers of Congress, is to take possession of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible to any definition.
    Thomas Jefferson Letter to George Washington, 1791
    .
    Over time, innumerable steps have been taken beyond the boundaries thus specifically drawn and possession taken of a boundless field of power, no longer susceptible to any definition. The rule of constitutional law has been supplanted by the rule of the electoral mob......and too few Americans today understand the difference......or the ultimate tragedy of such folly. SUCH IGNORANCE..!!!!

    Grim:
    .
    You can quote Thomas Jefferson until you're blue in the face, but that WON'T change the fact that the federal government was CONSTITUTIONALLY given the power to overrule a state..!!! Sorry about that, but it's a fact..!!!!
    .
    Seems to me that we fought a Civil War to set this point straight as well..!!!! Yet here you are, ignorantly denying what the Constitution plainly says..!!!!
