    No they're not, they're quite distinct

    If a state's constitution specified a legislature of a lower and an upper house, it would be in line with the national constitution. If it specified one house only, it would not be in line

    If a state's constitution allowed for slavery, it would contradict the national constitution



    Go back to the SCOTUS case referenced earlier and read for yourself what the Justices said.
    I asked about the Constitution.

    But OK, you paste what they did say if it backs up your point.

    You really are a pugnacious fellow, aren’t you? Too bad for you that you are, yet again, wrong.

    “In line with” means in accordance with. Whether or not a state has a bicameral legislature makes no difference. Nebraska’s constitution is in line with the United States Constitution.

    You’ve been provided the answer already. Your laziness isn’t my concern.
    "What he did was not 'perfect.' No, it was a flagrant assault on our electoral rights, our national security interests, and our fundamental values. Corrupting an election to keep oneself in office is perhaps the most abusive and destructive violation of one's oath of office that I can imagine," Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT)

    No it doesn't...it doesn't matter if a state's constitution is in line with the national Constitution, provided it doesn't contradict it

    So it doesn't have to mirror the Constitution, except where the Constitution says it must do[/quote]

    There's the difference

    Your laziness isn’t my concern.
    But yours is, if ever you have ambitions of winning a debate.

    You may be dogmatic (I won’t argue), but you are definitely pugnacious and wrong.

    Why do you continue repeating your same wrong assertion?

    Because it's true, regardless of whether you believe it to be so.
