Not secession

Sovereignty does not mean secession.

You have to understand that the issue of opposing the FOCA was already being brought before this committee and this was an opportunity to address the 10th amendment at the same time.

Sometime you have to do what you can to get something out of committee and onto the floor.

Most of the state reps do not understand the 10th amendment in the first place. They can understand it better if a clear example of unconstitutional exercise of powers is given.

Finally, the state legislators want to be the ones who decide this, not the federal government, no matter which side of the issue they are on.
