I wholeheartedly agree, my friend.
Sadly "We the People" have abrogated OUR RESPONSIBILITY as citizens to DEMAND that the federal and state governments respect, and comply with their respective constitutional parameters.
I am originally from Missouri (St. Louis). Have lived in California, Texas, and now Colorado.
Only - when a sufficient number of us like-minded folks DEMONSTRATE that we expect our constitutional rights to be respected - will the LOGIC that you have expressed come to pass.
We spend a lot of keyboard time on this forum- and others - discussing the technical "legalities" - while ignoring THE LAW (our constitutions) and that only serves to embolden the tyrants.
