    Yes. Look how Obama is stopping Arizona from protecting the border since Obama refuses to.

    You mean the democrats at the federal level are taking those rights away

    I see your point but immigration is primarily a federal area not state

    The easy answer is that section 8 Article I of the Constitution tells us exactly what powers the federal government has. Section 9 what powers the federal government doesn’t have and Section 10 what the states are prohibited from doing. Then to be safe the 10th amendment was added to insure the federal government remained a limited government stating what powers the constitution hadn’t granted the federal government is left to the states. Now Slavery was banned by another amendment so you can cross that one off your list. The rest, compare to what powers the federal government has and what powers were prohibited to the states. If they are not listed in Article one, then it is a safe assumption they belong to the state.

    But that does not make it so, what the Constitution actually says and what is constitutional is determined by the SCOTUS. It is what they say, not the constitution that rules.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    We're in agreement there, marriage I was thinking may be a federal issue but I don't mind either or.

    Drugs are definitely state, international relations obviously federal, immigration is federal.

    Abortion I believe is simply within the right to privacy, therefor neither state nor federal? It's a right.

    Education is a state issue.

    Slavery??!?!?!?

    The fed is not doing it. The congress and Obama should all be impeached for not doing their oath of office they took to protect our borders. If the fed refuses the state should take over

    If immigration was a state issue you understand how incredibly MORE ****ed up this country would be?

    It would over-complicate the **** out of things I bet.

    Abortion falls under privacy, which is a right.

    You miss the point. Arizona tried to protect their citizens because Obama refused. If Obama will not do it should the state protect the borders?
