People are so concerned about overreaching Federal Power and dwindling States Rights, but it seems the Federal Government is the only entity women can rely on to mete out justice.

Precisely. It’s one of the numerous reasons they hate it so much.

If we didn’t have a strong federal government and every state was allowed to do its own thing unchecked, we’d most likely look like a very large Afghanistan in no time flat, with each state having its own “warlord” and militia.

From what I’ve seen the wingnuts know this and want this. They know they’ll never be more than small fish in a big pond so they’re trying to shrink the pond by dividing it up into fifty (or more) smaller ponds.

Then they’ll be important.

Treasonous loons.

It continues to amaze me that these states keep filing these types of lawsuits that make me wonder where their attorneys general attended law school and how they were able to get law licenses and get elected. I’m only a retired high school social studies teacher ( no law school,) and I know that the Supremacy Clause doesn’t allow any state to deprive its’ citizens of federal program like Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. It is very embarrassing for me to witness these tools waste taxpayers’ money on these frivolous lawsuits that are based only on their personal beliefs/religion. These are the same tools who stand up and accuse PBO of being a big spender!! I certainly hope that voters choose someone better than Jan Brewer as their next governor, who, imo, has been a disaster for the state. It seems that it’s been very easy for any tool to convince her to go along with ever RW crackpot idea in existence. The sanest decision she has made since taking office has been to agree to the Medicaid expansion in the ACA.

Seriously. I was just standing in the kitchen cooking and thinking about America without a federal government:

The Mexican cartels would immediately move into the Southwest border states, and Texas farmers would be growing new, more profitable, crops (the way they grow opium in Afghanistan). That means the governors of those states would have to expend a lot of resources dealing with that, and the Mexicans would no doubt fund & arm insurgents.

In other states, the Christian Dominionists/Deconstructionists would immediately try to seize power and implement a theocracy, which would cause all kinds of chaos when secularists and other non-Christians started bucking their plans. Then there would also be the white nationalists/separatists to contend with. If given a place at the table (or if they came out on top), minority guerrilla insurgent groups would spring up all over the place; if marginalized, they’d likely become a nasty thorn in the side of the “race traitor” state governments.

I know I have an overactive imagination and it sounds really freaky & way out there, but after what I’ve seen over the past 4-5 years I could totally see it happening if each state had to fend for itself.

If the average American could follow us around 24/7 and see how boringly ordinary most American Muslims’ lives are (aside from our “exotic” dress & prayer rituals) they’d be terribly disappointed, heh.

For what its worth, Brewer also vetoed a birther bill, so that’s two things she got right.

It’s why I say that the next American Civil War will resemble the Yugoslavian Civil War.

The same people will win the former that won the latter: nobody.
