    But they cannot do that.
    Is this your way of arguing that the states are constitutionally prohibited from exiting the union? If so, could you please cite for us the language that prohibits them from doing so?

    That is clear.
    I enjoy how you wish to pretend to be clueless and then blame me for not bothering to humor you. We both know you understand why we have laws against murder and other similar crimes. Play stupid if you want, but I'm not buying it.

    As I have already told you - there simply is no such power that you are describing.

    I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Do you?

    If you do, why is it that you have such immense difficulty making yourself understood?

    Destruction and murder.

    You tell me how they are connected. Am I talking to a two year old right now?

    Perhaps you can tell us what riddle you have wrapped into the puzzle that is your thinking process?

    In all my years, I have never come across a person who has such supreme difficulty making themselves understood as you are with this line of 'thought'.

    So you don't know how they are connected which means you have no idea why we punish murder.

    Great..

    but but the tenth amendment says they have such power,ofall the arguments you could have made you made the weakest all,an argument trumped by the 10nth,you would have been better off using court desicions rather than just saying they werent given the power.

    No it does not. The White decisions says there is no such power - reserved or otherwise.
