Wow, I would have thought that South Carolina would be the first to secede.

Well, of course, but wasn't the governor's brother in law doing much of the paving at the time?

It was 1984 man. I was in Jr. High.

I was wrong on the roads; Edwards was not in office at the time.

The difference is try having UPS pickup 12 large boxes of weed and ship it to another state, the very least it would make the news. Then order something from midway and tell me if you notice anything different about the transaction

So if a state constitution can trump the US constitution then any state that chooses should be able to waive your right to a trial or stop your first amendment rights as well. Also they should be able to stop your 2A rights if they choose to do so.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incorporation_of_the_Bill_of_Rights

That link gives some insight on the situation as a whole, basically federal trumps state.
