I think it is called a "debate."
What I find interesting is there are those who support the idea of States Rights as something special or desirable, even after historical accounts of the concepts failures and downright abuses, to the very people it is said to protect and serve.
That's why I thought this an excellent thread to point out the problems Jeff Davis had with the States within his own Confederacy that demanded they be treated as sovereign nations at the expense of their own independence, putting state goals ahead of national ones, which led to the destruction of the Confederacy in the end.
Makes me wonder why the State sovereignty crowd almost swoon over the idea with so many bad examples in our own nation's history.
Oh, well, back to the debate.
Belief does not make truth. Evidence makes truth. And belief does not make evidence.
