FEDERAL LAW TRUMPS ANY OPPOSING STATE LAW... AND AS SUCH SHOULD FOREVER BE To allow the opposite would lead to a second Civil War though this time not over slavery and those things I noted in my post below... but instead over taxation 'rights' and diversion of such in any for, amount or manner by a 'seceded' state to the US Treasury. If such were allowed (secession) the result would be the division of the United States into at least four independent 'nations'. It could also lead to 57 nations (due to Obama believing 57 states comprise the present day United States). The result of such would be economically calamitous to any present day non-coastal states. Coastal states would demand 'transport right' fees in order that...

In a marriage, where vows are ignored and broken, divorce is the most peaceful solution. Similarly, our constitutional and human rights have been increasingly violated by a government instituted to protect them. Americans who support constitutional abrogation have no intention of mending their ways.

Since Barack Obama's re-election, hundreds...
