STATES RIGHTS MY ASS - REPUBLICANS LIE BECAUSE THEIR FOLLOWERS ARE LEMMINGS

Today the Republican conservative majority on the Supreme Court struck down two state laws - they found unconstitutional the regulation of violent video games, (actually only 4 of the conservatives agreed with this finding, along  with 3 liberals) and a campaign  finance law in Arizona.  Whether I agree with the rulings is meaningless.  I am not the once yelling "States Rights." It is the conservative Republican.

First of all the entire argument of States Rights is bogus and goes to the Republicans failure to understand the true sovereigns are the people.  What ever is reserved to the States is in fact not a right, but an empowerment to the people to retain control over their individual states.  The authority is retained by the people to use as they see fit through their state legislatures.  The States such as the federal government have no rights - they have powers conferred upon them by the people with the ultimate authority residing with the people.

Now here is the kicker - will all of the great conservatives running for president denounce the Republican conservatives on the Supreme Court for holding the will of the people in California and Arizona unconstitutional?  No - which is why I say "States Rights" my ass.
