I don't get it.
How is it possible that with the CLEARLY expressed intentions of the founding fathers that the United States Constitution (USC) and Federal laws be supreme over state constitutions and laws that we have seen such terrible erosion of our USC granted rights by various states?
In addition to the Supremacy Clause in the 2A which states, "This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in pursuance thereof; and all treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme law of the land; and the judges in every state shall be bound thereby, anything in the constitution or laws of any state to the contrary notwithstanding."
We also have the 14th amendment Privileges or Immunities Clause, which states:
"No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States."
How do we have states like Illinois, New Jersey, and New York that are clearly violating the constitution? What's gone wrong? How do we fix this?
