The idea that the states should choose its own policies thereby being more responsive and reprehensible of the people’s wishes. Local representation was better representation.
If people in MA want liberal and socialist policies, let them have it. But if AL wants a capitalist economy, let them have it. That is liberty and freedom. If a citizen doesn’t like their states decisions or laws they could simply move to another state that suits them. Thus giving more free choice to the individual. Federal control foists too many unwanted laws that are unresponsive to the needs and sensibilities of differing thought and ideas. NY doesn't need to push their policies on someone in ID. Just because one or several states sees a problem with the laws governing an issue should not require other states that are dealing with the same issue satisfactorily to change their laws.When the Fed dictates and controls solutions they are likely to be unresponsive to the climate and issues of individual states with less political pull in the fed. Why should the people have taxes and laws they don’t want because the federal government wants to make a one size fits all decision. That belief is what a states rights-es beliefs .
Before civil war Virginia believed that Virginia was sovereign and joined a union freely and un-join if it was in their best interest. Their State's rights as they saw it.
After the Civil War states have be bullied by a federal government hat seeks to make not only major decision for the states, but for Individuals. This is called Tyranny.
1) A reference to the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution
2) A code word that politicians use to signal to racists that they too, are racist. Used in the past to signal that you support segregation and Jim Crow laws.
When Strom Thurmond said he believed in State's Rights, he really meant that he wanted to keep segregation legal in the South.
If you believe in States' Rights but want to pass the Constitutional amendment banning gay marriage, you are a hypocrite.
Such rights include legal protections against discrimination in employment, housing, public accommodations and credit based soley on a person's actual or perceived sexual orientation. Currently only 15 states and the District of Columbia have such laws in effect that protect against such discrimination in the USA. That means that shamefully it's currently legal to discriminate against gays and lesbians in these areas in 35 states!!!more...
In other words, a gay or lesbian person can be denied or fired from a job, refused an apartment or right to buy a house, be denied a hotel room, be denied service at a restaurant, or entrance to a club or credit simply because of who they are in 35 states and can't do a damn thing legally about the injustice! Technically, a heterosexual can be discriminated against too!
There are no federal laws in place to protect gay and lesbian people from such discrimination. Although a bill is pending in Congress that would at least outlaw workplace discrimination based on sexual orientation, the republican controlled Congress won't allow it to come up for a vote on the floor!!! Some republicans claim we need hearings to determine the need, but refuse to hold any. Others like to point to costly frivolous lawsuits as an excuse for not supporting it, yet fail to reconcile that against their own claims that homosexuals only make up 1% of the US population! Others who make religious objections, refuse to admit that the bill provides exceptions to relig...
|4.||Confederate States of America|
A group of states that didn't like the way United States of America was going, so they said they weren't really part of the United States of America anymore. The rest of the country didn't like this, so they started a war. A lot of people think the war was fought over slavery, but that was just one issue among many. Most southerners didn't even own slaves, although most of the ones who did owned a lot of them. The next most common thing is to own one slave or no slaves.
If the Confederate States of America had won, things would be so much better now. People would've abolished slavery eventually and the Confederate States of America were much more for state rights than our government is today.

God Bless The United States of America
Noun - An act of legislation, at any level of government, which effectively reduces the power and influence of that government and its officeholders. Such a reduction is preferred, but not required, to be either substantial or the original legislative intent.
A combination of "negative" and "legislation," negislation references the crucial distinction between the positive and negative powers of government as set out in the Constitution of the United States.
The passage of medical marijuana laws in various states would be considered negislation because they represent a net reduction in the power of government over the lives and personal choices of individual citizens.
A country in the western hemisphere. The United States gets hackled by many other countries citizens everyday even though they know nothing about the people there.
*Remember*Not every American is a fucking asshole, just the ones that type shit into urbandictionary.com and youtube.com. Almost everyone in the U.S.A is friendly and not a prick.
