    Supremacy Clause only applies to powers granted by the Constitution. In all other cases the Tenth Amendment makes it clear that all powers not given to the federal government by the Constitution are retained by the states and the federal government has no just power to act. In fact Jefferson said that when the federal government stepped outside of its constitutional boundaries that it was up to the states to nullify such laws as they deemed unconstitutional. As for Article 1, Section 9 is about slavery and not immigration. As per the very anti-immigration Heritage Foundation's article on Article 1 Section 9: You have been taught this before, that you continue to try and spread historical error as truth exposes you as a liar. That you do so with the Constitution in order to justify unconstitutional and illegal actions by the US government exposes you as just another Big Government Progressive looking to warp the Constitution from its original meaning so you can use violence to force your beliefs on others. That article even explains why it says "persons" instead of slaves.

    I don't know that there is a conspiracy here. I tend not to see conspiracy when plain stupid explains it so well. The Antifa are insane Socialist tyrants as terrible as the idiots waving Nazi flags and calling for a race war. The difference is that the Alt. Right has developed more of a central leadership while the Antifa is more like a bunch of related individual cells working towards the same goal. Because it is decentralized it is harder to peg anyone as being THE problem, which results in a more complicated formula. And if there is anything the MSM doesn't do well it is "complicated." Simple stories sell better. The real victim I think are all those who are NOT Antifa and who are out there protesting Alt. Right Nazisms and violent nationalism who get lumped into the Antifa groups because, again, trying to actually explain that there are dozens of groups, and tens of thousands of people who are there protesting the Alt. Right but who aren't Antifa and who represent ideologies from across the political spectrum, is probably too complicated for the simplistic narratives that the MSM sells. Anyone who has the experience that whenever they protest Antifa and someone immediately calls him or her a Nazi knows exactly what I'm talking about. Now, why simplistic stupid narratives sell so much better, either because the masses are stupid or because they're being dumbed down, is probably a chicken and egg scenario.

    I'm sure plenty of the nationalists on here will be all over California for this one, but it is actually acting constitutionally here. Nowhere in the US Constitution is the US government given the authority to regulate immigration. That was a power left to the States. Each state therefore has the right to create whatever immigration policy that can be passed through its government and into law. Federal agents showing up at a state court in order to enforce federal immigration laws and threatening states whose immigration laws do not match up with federal immigration laws are a double overreach of the limits of federal authority and power as outlined by the Constitution.

    @r3volution 3.0, Good eye. I grew up in Nebraska but he draws a blank for me (he wasn't acknowledged very often there, at least in my town). @Swordsmyth, Trump views Zuckerberg as 2020 opponent - http://www.ibtimes.com/zuckerberg-vs-trump-president-views-facebook-founder-2020-opponent-2581021 Note: I would keep an eye on Chris Kennedy. The whole "Kennedy family" + "businessman" will probably appeal to voters, especially since the former isn't tainted like the Clinton, Bush, and (soon to be) Trump name.

    AntiFa and Alt-Right arguing about who is worse are like twins arguing about who was born first. Also, since no legitimate Ron Paul supporters can be a part of AntiFa or Alt-Right, we should start a movement to piggyback on their popularity. We'll call it AntiFe in honor of Anti Federalist

    @1stvermont, Anthony Johnson wasn't actually the first slave owner in America. African slaves were sold in the British colonies during 1634. The Casor lawsuit was in 1655. Another point: Colonist Samuel Maverick was a prominent slaveholder in Massachusetts. He brought slaves over in 1638. http://www.npr.org/2016/06/21/482874478/forgotten-history-how-the-new-england-colonists-embraced-the-slave-trade http://yipp.yale.edu/bio/bibliography/maverick-samuel

    What's the truth? I have a copy of Jared Diamond's "Guns, Germs, and Steel" but have not read through it yet. Is his conclusive stance, "geographic luck", the answer? ďIn short, Europeís colonization of Africa had nothing to do with differences between European and African peoples themselves, as white racists assume. Rather, it was due to accidents of geography and biogeographyóin particular, to the continentsí different areas, axes, and suites of wild plant and animal species. That is, the different historical trajectories of Africa and Europe stem ultimately from differences in real estate.Ē - Jared Diamond

    http://www.sabhlokcity.com/2015/01/the-sorry-case-of-putins-corrupt-totalitarianism-russia-is-a-mafia-state-just-like-india/ Chanced upon an article in the Australian Financial Review ("Red Robber Barons Back in the USSR" by Anne Applebaum). It is the same as this book review published in NY Times. The book being reviewed is Karen Dawisha's Putin's Kleptocracy. A talk by Karen about her book, below I also came across Padma Desai's letter to the Financial Timeswhich states clearly. Mr Putin remains an egocentric, authoritarian ruler. In the old days, the tsars ignored the nobility (boyars) at their peril. Leonid Brezhnev, leader from 1964-1982, had to deal with the politburo of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. By contrast, Mr Putin is an absolute ruler. The Russian legislature is his rubber-stamping body. Despite the amnesty measures, Russia remains a police state with widespread controls on internet activity and public meetings all unveiled under presidential executive orders. For some misguided reason I was relatively sanguine about Russia after reading relatively positive articles in newspapers/magazines over the years. Here's one that I randomly picked up from the internet. Moscow is supposedly a modern city. Padma Desai's talk in Melbourne a couple of years ago depicted a modestly positive picture. But after reading this book review, I wrote to her and she responded that she has not read the book yet. But she recommended I read her letter in Financial Times (which I've cited above). Clearly she has changed her stance re: Putin.

    People have the capacity to reason. You don't need to always show them the whole thing. A strong statement telling them that they are wrong is often all you need to do. Then they do the rest, at least when the other person can think.

    If they're feeling like idiots, they will feel bad. Feeling bad makes people try to do something different to feel better. So they might just go ahead and think and stop being idiots.

Now, I will agree that ultimately it was the sheer size of the empire which caused its fall.

IQ Ratings Are Fake Science

Rand Paul Is not Ron Paul

Russia: After Russia invaded Ukraine last year, Rand Paul called for sanctions against the invading nation. Ron Paul warned against that, saying it could sink the U.S. dollar.

The NSA: Ron Paul wants the National Security Agency eliminated. Rand Paul says he's more interested in reining it in.

NSA leaker Edward Snowden: Rand Paul thinks Edward Snowden should receive a light punishmentósuch as a
