The usual observation made by one of FR's 'states rights' crowd is that somehow our States are not obligated to support the individual rights outlined in the Constitution/BOR's.

Which is nice but totally divorced from reality. The usual nonsense from libertarians who have nothing against rules and laws as long as they are your rules and laws and enforced by an overly strong central government.

The Constitution IS the supreme law of the USA.

I didn't think so. But I'd think if you were gonna embrace the Constitution, which I think is a goos thing, you'd become familiar with it. Read Article 6, Clause 2.

Clause 2: 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, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.

Do you have a point?

Glad to see you have regained your grasp on Constitutional realities.
-- Now you need to work on the irrational, ludicrous view you have about libertarians supporting authoritarian governments.
