This is why I love Alabama. They make South Carolina look just a little better all the time.

Sweet. About time states start to tell the feds to eff off. And sorry, but letting the SCOTUS decide what the feds can or cannot do is a joke.

nothing could make SC look better, haven't many other states done the same thing?

Yes, we need to quickly do away with that pesky checks and balances thing and just let the Legislative and Executive branches have free reign to do whatever they'd like.

Your building up a straw man and then shooting him down is purely an emotional rant. The checks and balances are doing fine.

What is at issue here is a much larger picture where an increasing number of people are expressing through their elected officials their dissatisfaction with how the federal government is acting in many areas. They feel DC is out of touch with them and does not represent their wishes.

Recognizing the reality behind moves by states to curb the federal power is wise because it mirrors repeated incidents throughout recorded history. It would be far wiser to address the underlying issues than to glibly mock the effort.
