I don’t understand where the argument that one can have more or less rights and responsibilities in one state than another makes any damn sense if we are calling ourselves the United States. Either we are a nation or we are not.
"Leave it up to the states" was also the pro-slavery argument in the 1800s.— Tristan Snell (@TristanSnell) June 24, 2022
And before you drag out the “but in the Constitution” argument, yeah, yeah, heard that one already. Our absolute fealty to an historic document written by, and primarily for the benefit of, flawed white male landowners makes just as little damn sense. Ideas have progressed much since the late 18th century; our governing documents should as well.
