BUT, even with Federalism,

it is just not enough for the Left.

Recently, I saw a bumper sticker that read, “The Constitution: Frustrating Liberals Since 1789.” This is a humorous witticism, but it carries the ring of truth.

… All of which brings us to two conflicting visions of what kind of government we should have. The men and women of the Left are, indeed, frustrated by the Constitution. The amendment process can be long and politically excruciating. The Tenth Amendment specifically says that those things not delegated to the federal government belong to the states. So, finding it difficult to advance its agenda through Congress or state legislatures, liberals have looked to the court to find rights, meanings, and “penumbras, formed by emanations” within the Constitution. In other words, things that are not there. [emphasis added]

This entire debate is further evidence of the widening divide between Left and Right. If liberals want to terminate the existence of states and ditch the Constitution, they should say so. But don’t talk about bigotry, hatred, oppression, or, as President Biden said, a Supreme Court that is “out of control.” The Supreme Court is no longer under liberal control. That is the true source of leftist rage.
