  •  And I quote (0+ / 0-)

    from the Supremacy Clause:

    "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, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding."
    That's what's so bad about it.  

    Such an idea is patently unconstitutional.

    States to not get to decide which laws they want to uphold.  

    My country, right or wrong; if right, to be kept right; and if wrong, to be set right. -- Senator Carl Schurz(MO-1899)
