Me and Jefferson and Madison. Who you got on your side?Oh, you say so, so that's it...
They are definitely better sources than the mythical "constitutional scholars" you've alluded to.Since you seem to want to argue without reason, I'll spell it out for you - that one of the founding fathers made a statement, does not make it above god. Jefferson et al were fallible, and that he proffered something you agree with does not make it anymore legitimate than if a homeless person says it today.
That's teh liberal mindset, yes.I need to bring in weather experts to prove clouds exist? The conventional wisdom is that only the federal government - for reasons obvious to most rational, honest individuals - has the authority to create immigration law.
The way it was intended to. As dual federalist nation where the states were sovereign bodies equal to or greater than the Federal government.If Texas decides to open its borders to the world, and NM wants to close its borders, how would the country function?
Not only will I argue that they can, I'll actually argue that these things currently exist as State Defense Forces.I am not going to argue with you further on this point, soon you will argue that each state can form its own army, its own navy, etc., you are beginning to just waste my time...
Mission & Purpose - Texas State Guard

Missions are directed by the Commander in Chief of the Texas Military Forces the Governor of Texas and commanded by the Texas Adjutant General.

"Liberal" is not an insult. It's a description.You want to call rational considerations "liberal", fine, your "arguments are absurd, and you cannot even defend them reasonably - just try to insult.
Future replies need to bring substance, or they'll be ignored.
