That's not uncommon, but one that I've never heard (though it would be more accurate) is the
War for Federal Supremacy
The Constitution gave very specific and limited authority to the federal government, and any sane reading of the Constitution would inform you that the modern thought
federal law trumps state law is a lie: only federal law pursuant to the Constitution is superior, anything not so pursuant is null and void (see the last third of Maybury v. Madison for an excellent logical/legal proof.)
War for Federal Supremacy, the federal government has usurped a lot of powers that are rightly those of the several states — this usurpation has been quickly growing in the very recent years, but the trend for greater and greater usurpation is illustrated very well with prohibition and
the war on drugs: in the former there was a Constitutional amendment, in the latter no such amendment exists. (The difficulty of the acceptance of each indicates the implicit authority accepted to enact the laws. Prohibition was at least following the letter of the the law that is the Constitution, the War on Drugs does not even need that form followed to be held as legitimate.) Now we have reached the point where the federal government is telling us we must engage in commerce.
If you were around at the time, the prospect of the old country falling apart and being replaced by something new, most likely two countries hostile to each other, would be more apparent than anything about who would have the upperhand in a country that might not exist any more.
