Doesn't get to decide what violates our Constitution, the Supreme Court does and strongly disagrees with Mr. Goodman's interpretation. So it is not we but YOU Mr. Goodman that are ignoring our Constitution in ignoring our Supreme Court 's interpretation of it. Maybe it's because they know the history of our Constitution and the fact that it was specifically written to give the federal government the power to supersede state law. A power it did not have under our Article of Confederation, which worked so poorly it was the reason Washington's troops were ill-equipped and nearly starved for more than half the war. And the reason none of the states were paying their war debts after. Washington CLEARLY answered this question of the founders intent for us when he, without hesitation, sent troops to put down the the "Whiskey Rebellion" with force if necessary.
