I defend states' rights. I never once suggested a federal intrusion to prevent this (in fact, I would oppose it). I simply said that this should not be applauded by supporters of liberty and freedom.
In your defense of states' rights do you defend Massachussets healthcare mandate as a win for liberty? Are California's state taxes and redistribution systems a win for liberty? Is it a win for liberty that I couldn't buy alcohol on Election Day, can't have wine shipped to my home from out of state, or can't purchase fireworks?
A state's laws, while legally and constitutionally created, can harm liberty.
But if you want to call it a win for states' rights, then also call the GMO initiatives that were voted down a win.
